Ben Affleck is playing Batman and we’re all just going to have to deal with that. Director Zack Snyder, of the upcoming Batman V. Superman posted a tweet featuring a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, AKA, Batfleck. Accompanying the tweet was simply “#75″. Here it is:

What do we think? There’s not a whole lot to go on. I’m impressed, he definitely looks like Batman, even with his Affleck chin. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?

Police Not Amused By Lily Allen’s Prank Photo

Categories: celebrities

Lily+Allen

Lily Allen thought her photo of herself being arrested would make people “smile” (see what I did there, thanks) but actually, it made Australian police frown.

Ms. Allen thought it would be fun to get a shot of Australian police handcuffing her and her technicolor hair for her Instagram…and now an official police investigation is being launched to basically decide who the hell thought that would be a good idea. From TMZ:

The Australian Federal Police say officers were escorting Allen through Gold Coast Airport when she jokingly asked one of the cops to handcuff her … and she posted the picture on Instagram.

The AFP wasn’t happy about it and launched an investigation … acknowledging protocols were breached but then kind of justifying it by saying the officers were “caught in the moment.”

The photo has since been removed from her Instagram account, but TMZ got a snap before its disappearance:

Personally, I think it was a baaaad idea, and I think she realized that and deleted it.

What do you think of the pic?

Susan Sarandon Banged David Bowie

Categories: celebrities

Susan Sarandon is now someone I’m jealous of, as the actress banged David Bowie in the 1980′s while working on the film The Hunger. (Between this and going to awards shows stoned, she’s gotta be the coolest, right?) She talked about it with The Daily Beast, saying, via Daily News:

He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary.

(He’s) just a really interesting person, and so bright. He’s a talent and a painter, and… he’s great.

Apparently they “parted ways” because Sarandon didn’t want children at the time.

Listen, when David Bowie wants to have your children, you have David Bowie’s children. (Bowie is currently married to supermodel Iman. They have a daughter together.) I don’t even WANT children, but for Bowie…

But that’s me. Which rock star would YOU give it up for (more…)

Jenny McCarthy Did Not Tell Melissa McCarthy To Lose Weight

Categories: celebrities

Did you know that Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy are cousins? Makes sense, but it still blew my mind. It’s pretty easy to blow my mind, actually. Like learning that Jason Biggs isn’t Jewish totally blew my mind.

ANYWAY, Jenny is denying reports that she told Melissa to lose weight. She tweeted,

Hey media outlets! The story about my cousin Melissa and I is bullshit. I’m proud of her & would never say such hurtful words. Shame on you.

And also talked about it with PEOPLE, saying,

There is a crazy story going around that I once told my cousin, Melissa, that she would have to lose weight in order to get into show business. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Though she helped cousin Melissa get her foot in the door, she credits Melissa’s success to one person only — Melissa.

She has accomplished everything she has accomplished through hard work and her extraordinary talent, and I’ve only ever encouraged and supported and wished her the very best.

Oh, and one more thing. Melissa McCarthy isn’t banned from Jenny McCarthy’s upcoming wedding, either:

[It’s] ridiculous. Donnie and I are planning a very intimate ceremony that will involve a very small group of our closest friends and that’s it – not a huge production with hundreds of friends and extended families.

That seems a little odd — I would absolutely invite my cousin to my wedding, but I guess they’re just not as close as we are. So there you go, now you know the whole scoop on the celebrity cousins. The question is, do you care? DUN DUN DUNNNNNN. (more…)

Tom Hiddleston wrote a gushing, overexcited fan-boy letter to Joss Whedon

Tom Hiddleston wrote a gushing, overexcited fan-boy letter to Joss Whedon

Tom Hiddleston made an appearance at Comic-Con. Sort of. He wasn’t actually, physically in San Diego (OR WAS HE? No, he wasn’t). But Tommy did crop up in some “special” footage from Guillermo del Toro’s first look at Crimson Peak at Comic Con. Del Toro promised that he would bring Hiddles and the rest of the cast to Comic-Con next year, because Crimson Peak is still 18 months away from a release date. Del Toro also had nice things to say about the cast of CP, including this about Lord Dragonfly: “I must tell you girls, Tom Hiddleston is the nicest f–king guy on earth. It used to be in the past that you were either nice, or you were good-looking and an a–hole. Now that barrier is ruined.” So, there you have it.

But still, you want more evidence that Tommy is the adorable, kissable, puppy-like, swan-sonneting dork-lord of your dreams? Well, then I have got something for you. According to a new biography of Joss Whedon, when Whedon stepped in to do a decent draft of The Avengers, Tommy wrote him a lovely email/letter telling Joss how brilliant and fantastic he is. Here is the letter:

Joss,

I am so excited I can hardly speak.

The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn’t know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for LOKI on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind: “real menace”; “field of obeisance”; “discontented, nothing is enough”; “his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull”; “Puny god” …

… Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber. But a Hans Gruber with super-magic powers. As played by James Mason … It’s high operatic villainy alongside detached throwaway tongue-in-cheek; plus the “real menace” and his closely guarded suitcase of pain. It’s grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously fun part I’ve ever stared down the barrel of playing. It is just so juicy.

I love how throughout you continue to put Loki on some kind of pedestal of regal magnificence and then consistently tear him down. He gets battered, punched, blasted, side-swiped, roared at, sent tumbling on his back, and every time he gets back up smiling, wickedly, never for a second losing his eloquence, style, wit, self-aggrandisement or grandeur, and you never send him up or deny him his real intelligence…. That he loves to make an entrance; that he has a taste for the grand gesture, the big speech, the spectacle. I might be biased, but I do feel as though you have written me the coolest part.

… But really I’m just sending you a transatlantic shout-out and first-bump, things that traditionally British actors probably don’t do. It’s epic.

[Via Business Insider]

Joss wrote him back, of course, and you can see Joss’s kind respond here. I’m debating with myself whether I think Hiddles is a giant dork for this. When I first read the letter a few days ago, my immediate reaction was CRINGE. It’s just so ass-kissy and overly obsequious. I waited a while and re-read it. And my reaction was different the second time around. I think it’s mostly a nice letter, gushing and complimentary and it’s just the kind of letter one fan-boy would send another fan-boy. So, fair enough. Hiddles is just so EXTRA though. Sigh…

Comic-Con: Geek out on new info, casting for ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5

This post is just dork stuff from the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con, which is to say it’s life-affirming and amazing and I never want to stop talking about Game of Thrones. I’m just including lots of Pedro Pascal photos from Comic-Con, because he’s BOSS and I love that he came out for the GoT panel even though (spoiler) he’s dead. A lot of GoT castmembers were there, including Jamie Lannister (I’m not spelling his real name), Ayra Stark, Kit Harington, Gwendolyne Christie and more. But everybody wanted a piece of Pedro. Of course they did. LOOK AT HIM. He is dreamy.

Anyway, a bunch of new stuff/information debuted at Comic-Con. We know for sure that Dorne is going to play a big part in Season 5, and a bunch of Oberyn Martell’s relatives will be introduced. I’m looking forward to seeing Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell, Oberyn’s older brother. Also, Keisha Castle-Hughes is one of Oberyn’s daughters!!! One of the biggest “gets” for Game of Thrones is the casting for “the High Sparrow,” who will be some kind of major religious figure in King’s Landing. The High Sparrow will be played by Jonathan Pryce. I LOVE JONATHAN PRYCE. Here’s a little introductory video on the new castmembers:

Very cute. I love it when the actors seem to geek out on the GoT material. That’s why I enjoyed that Sean Bean interview – Bean is still a fan of the show, he still cares about those characters and how the story is told and he would love to come back. It feels like the new cast members feel like they just won the lottery too.

And here’s a blooper reel for Season 4. Charles Dance is so funny. So is Dinklage!
