“Diane Kruger’s Giambattista Valli dress is odd but not unpleasant” links

I wish Diane Kruger’s Giambattista Valli dress was one piece, with a belt. This is a really strange construction, right? [Go Fug Yourself] I’m sort of obsessed with reading about this $450 million painting and how it might not even be a real Leonardo di Vinci. [Pajiba] Here’s a review of Justice League, which continues […]

Robert Pattinson: ‘Every person I know who’s got famous is completely nuts’

Robert Pattinson: ‘Every person I know who’s got famous is completely nuts’

There’s some talk that Robert Pattinson could sneak into some awards nominations this year for Good Time. The film wasn’t exactly the best-reviewed movie of the year, but most critics took a moment to praise Sparkles and his performance as an American hoodlum. Personally, I don’t think Sparkles will get nominated of much, but who […]

Amber Heard: ‘I don’t want to be the princess. I want to be the prince’

Amber Heard: ‘I don’t want to be the princess. I want to be the prince’

It occurred to me as I read Amber Heard’s Allure cover story that she hasn’t really sat down for an in-depth magazine profile since her divorce from Johnny Depp. While married to Depp, Amber got a lot of magazine covers, but she’s been squirrelly with magazines in the past few years. And who can blame […]

Al Franken issues a better apology, says he welcomes ethics investigation

Embed from Getty Images As we discussed briefly in the links yesterday, a radio host named Leeann Tweeden told her #MeToo story about Senator Al Franken, the sitting Democratic senator from Minnesota. Franken was a famous comedian and comedy writer in a former life, and I always sort of idly wondered if there were any […]

Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian’s wedding had a ‘Beauty & the Beast’ theme

Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian’s wedding had a ‘Beauty & the Beast’ theme

Serena Williams really did it. Serena married Alexis Ohanian in New Orleans on Thursday, in what seemed like a grand, black-tie affair at the Contemporary Arts Center. Wedding guests wore full-on gowns and tuxedos, and there was a theme: Beauty and the Beast. Seriously! Arguably the Greatest of All Time had a Beauty-and-the-Beast-themed wedding. I’m […]

Is Louis CK the one high-profile predator who has a legit shot at a ‘comeback’?

Embed from Getty Images Of all the “outed” perverts and deviants this year, there’s one famous guy who I think will attempt a comeback and probably be partially successful. That person is Louis CK. We’ve been talking about sexual assailants and harassers for months now, and there are clear patterns in how we discuss their […]

Whoops! Jared Kushner didn’t turn over all of his Russia documents to the Senate

Embed from Getty Images Jared Kushner and paperwork: it’s so hard, you guys. It’s SO hard to fill out paperwork. It’s so hard to READ. It’s so hard to just, like, turn over documents. It’s so hard to remember every Russian contact you’ve ever had. It’s so hard to remember how many emails you got […]

You can read her story at the link, above. [New York Magazine] I told you that Bella Hadid & The Weeknd […]

Pippa Middleton’s gauche mansion renovation has pissed off all of her neighbors

Pippa Middleton’s gauche mansion renovation has pissed off all of her neighbors

One of the Duchess of Cambridge’s worst traits is that when she’s bored – and she’s often bored – she spends a ton of money on stupid things. If it was her own money, it wouldn’t be so bad. But Kate has blown through hundreds of thousands of dollars/pounds on a series of renovations for […]

Kate Winslet on Woody Allen: ‘As far as I know, he wasn’t convicted of anything’

Kate Winslet on Woody Allen: ‘As far as I know, he wasn’t convicted of anything’

Of all the “Oscar favorites” this year, for me the most annoying person is Kate Winslet. Like, I’m fine if Emma Stone wants to campaign for Battle of the Sexes (she was good in BOTS!). I’m also sort of fine if Jennifer Lawrence wants to campaign for ‘mother!’ because f–k it, she’ll make the Oscar […]

Donald Trump needed both of his tiny baby fists to hold one bottle of water

Embed from Getty Images Back in better days, Barack Obama was president and people still respected Marco Rubio enough to let him do the official Republican response to Obama’s 2013 State of the Union. Rubio’s speech was memorable because he got a bit parched halfway through and had to stop speaking and slurp some water. […]

Angelina Jolie: ‘A man who mistreats women is not oversexed. He is abusive’

Embed from Getty Images Angelina Jolie was in Vancouver yesterday for the U.N. Peacekeeping Defense Ministerial Conference. Jolie was one of the keynote speakers, and her speech was about the subject she’s devoted so much of her time to in the past decade: sexual violence in conflict. Through her work with the UNHCR, she’s seen […]
