CONGRATULATIONS, THE WORLD! You've made me more angry than I have ever dreamed of becoming! One quick question... Is this a fuckin hat? Because the shit LOOKS like something you'd bounce light off of to make you look pretty as shit when you do a photo shoot. So why's it on this woman's head? Let me just say this in a very succinct way - you cannot wear this. I don't give a shit if it's "fashionable". What if you have to run from a villain? That motherfucker's coming off and now you lost your hat. The only reason to have something like this on your head is this - Say everywhere you go, people throw bowls of pasta strictly at your head (and nowhere else on you) and it gets all in your hair and shit. This would be a great way to have the pasta hit your shit hat and just roll down the side missing your face completely. In fact, it wouldn't even hit your outfit AT ALL because the hat is wider than the Salt Flats in Utah. So you can basically have motherfuckers throw pasta at your face all day long and can just be like "Fuck you haters I'm still getting to the racetracks sauce free in this bitch." But man the SIZE of this shit is so disrespectful. What if you were on a train? Or in a crowded place? People would be hitting the side of their faces against the edge of the hat. If that happened to me I would absolutely pee on this person and when she looked at me I'd be like "The hat hit the side of my face so I had to do that shit to make it even." Then another guy on the train would probably go "You know, he's right." But straight up, the thing that makes me the MOST angry about this picture? The girls face, man. It's like she's looking at us like wearing that hat isn't that big of a deal... like it doesn't mean anything... She's looking at us like if we make eye contact with her the FIRST thing we would think would NOT be "Oh shit. Well, of course fuck you." But that is what we think. That's what everyone thinks when they see someone with this on their head. The president would think that shit. Swear to god. Jesus Christ would even see her and be like "You took too many liberties and now I gotta make your life shorter." This fuckin HAT, man 👒🚫

Why Hollywood Marriages Fail

Relationship Expert Fawn Weaver has written a new book called The Argument-Free Marriage. Cindy Adams recently asked her to talk about the reason why so many Hollywood marriages fail. Page Six quotes her as follows:

"Keep to your original emotion. Bitterness comes from acceleration. Hurt, sad, sorry, disappointed, your original vulnerable emotion is fixable. But obsessing about it, you feel yourself going crazy. Continued pressing on a car’s gas without using the brake accelerates it. Needed is a deceleration law. Relationship issues turn to anger. Instead of saying simply, ‘You hurt me,’ we strike out without pausing to address the basic vulnerable emotion of hurt. 

It must be stop, self-inspect, return to the original emotion. This idea began after 12 years of marriage. Upset over my husband’s argument, I walked outside for an hour deciding not to use words I’d regret. No shouting and finger-pointing. I said instead, quietly, ‘You hurt me.’ But it takes a strong person who’s not afraid to say, ‘You hurt me.’ Movie stars break up because there’s no mutual respect. To begin, they’re insecure. Say there’s two calls. One from the star’s wife, one from his p.r. person. He’ll answer the p.r. person’s call first.”

Grab the Brain Bleach - Woody Allen Talks Soon-Yi

Woody Allen recently sat down for an interview with NPR, where he opened up about his relationship with wife Soon-Yi Previn. NPR quotes him as follows:

"I've been married now for 20 years, and it's been good. I think that was probably the odd factor, that I'm so much older than the girl I married. I'm 35 years older, and somehow, through no fault of mine or hers, the dynamic worked. I was paternal. She responded to someone paternal. I liked her youth and energy. She deferred to me, and I was happy to give her an enormous amount of decision-making just as a gift and let her take charge of so many things. She flourished. It was just a good-luck thing. I started the relationship with her and I thought it would just be a fling, it wouldn't be serious. But it had a life of its own. And I never thought it would be anything more. Then we started going together, then we started living together, and we were enjoying it. And the age difference didn't seem to matter. It seemed to work in our favor, actually."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Ice Cream Hater

Everyone is piling on this young actress and calling her all sorts of nasty names. We’re going to explain to you why you might not want to judge her too harshly… and why she should consider making some adjustments to the way she communicates.

She was genuinely upset that her one of her interviews went so badly. She is young, she is not that experienced in dealing with the press, and she doesn’t quite understand how her demeanor rubs some people the wrong way.

Despite what people are saying, her behavior with a group of journalists was not meant to be rude or nasty. You may not have seen many interviews with her, but she is actually consistently dry and sarcastic in real life. She will often say exactly the opposite of what she means to be funny. For example, if you ask her if she likes ice cream, she will say, “No. I hate it!” with a completely serious face. It is a standard of humor that is fairly common where she comes from.

Unfortunately, she is just not experienced enough to recognize that her sarcastic delivery is not universally understood or beloved and can come off to other cultures as looking and sounding rude. Basically, her sense of humor got lost in translation.

Likability is often a key factor in popularity, and her team is going to have to help her adjust her communication skills. She’s either going to need to cut out the sarcasm… or learn how to do an appropriate American followup to properly convey her humor. For audio interviews, after a sarcastic remark, she could take a beat, say “just kidding”, and then proceed to express her true feelings. For video interviews, following up a sarcastic remark with a quick smile (a common American approach) would let the interviewer know that her previous remark was meant in jest.

It isn’t up to us to adjust to her. It’s up to her to adjust to us. The sooner she understands that and modifies her approach, the sooner everyone can focus on her talent.

We’ve seen her latest work, and she does have good acting instincts. If she can just master the art of communicating properly in other cultures, she should have a long and successful career ahead of her.

David Wain Talks Wet Hot American Summer

David Wain, created Wet Hot American Summer with Michael Showalter and who directs all eight episodes of the Netflix limited series, recently sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the return. The publication quotes him as follows:

On feeling pressure to live up to the film:
"We just focused on telling this story today. It was important to me as a fan of the original to make it a worthy companion piece and just make it as great as we could make it. For my money, it does achieve that in terms of being able to stand on its own. It was important for us not to retread jokes or ideas from the original movie, but instead to get those connectors and references that make it a satisfying companion piece."

On working with a new group of writers:
"What was great was that we had the benefit of having made the film. … In our early career, we had to spend a lot of time saying to people, "It's going to be funny. You just have to trust us," or "Let's see if we can explain to you what we have in mind." In this case, we were able to say, "Here's the movie. Now you know what it is." So there's a very clear template for what the tone and what the sense of humor is. Furthermore, we hired writers who in most cases already were very familiar with the film and able to demonstrate their understanding of it. … That idea expanded to the crew as well which was really cool. Our costume designer and our production designer, these are people who are a little bit younger than we are, and they were big fans of the film before ever meeting us. That's really been the extra juice to lovingly re-create the world."

McCormick: "Remember when it was minus six degrees on Riverside Drive, and Dann was directing"

Merkerson: "Yes! Earlier in the script meeting I had said, 'Van Buren should be in this scene. This is a high-profile case. Van Buren should be there.' Dann tried to talk me out of it and I said, 'No, she should be there.' So he was like, 'Okay.'"

Florek: "You were right. Then it was 10 below zero"

Merkerson: "He walked up to me while I was freezing my ass off and he said, 'Never volunteer.'"

Florek: "One time early on [a cast member and I] were at some restaurant downtown where all the models hung out. We come out and the cab’s coming and he goes, 'NEW YORK CITY POLICE, WE NEED THIS CAB NOW!' The cab pulls over and we jump in. Then we pull up somewhere, hop out, and the cabby goes, 'You owe me 40 dollars.' [My castmate] says, 'This is New York City police, pal.' We walk away and I'm going, 'We're gonna go to jail!'"

Merkerson: "Each one of us can probably tell you any number of stories because at the time we were always together. It's been hilarious thinking back. "

Angelina Jolie Talks Filming In Cambodia With Son Maddox

Angelina Jolie will be adapting Loung Ung's memoir, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia, for the big screen. Jolie recently spoke to reporters about her plans for the film, and Maddox's role in it. Us Weekly quotes her as follows from the email she wrote to the AP:

"I feel a deep connection to Cambodia. I want to respect its history and bring a film to the world that will not only show the hardships of war but the dignity and resilience of a people I deeply respect,. The intent of this project is not to revisit the horrors of the war but to bring to the screen characters that people around the world will empathize with, and to help other people to learn about Cambodia. 

What is special about this particular story is that it is told from the perspective of a 5-year-old child, and is based on a child's emotional experience of war. It sheds light not only on the experience of children during the genocide in Cambodia but of all children who endure war. 

As Maddox and I prepare the film, we will be side by side learning about his country. He is turning 14 next week and this is a very important time for him to understand who he is. He is my son but he is also a son of Cambodia. This is the time for our family to understand all that that means to him and to us. 

My desire to tell this story in the most truthful and accurate way possible will be my tribute to the strength and dignity of all Cambodian people. Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes. And yes, Maddox is already involved in the Foundation* and will take over my role when he is older." 

*"The Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation was launched in Cambodia 12 years ago to help local families overcome problems associated with poverty in the region and to help preserve the remarkable habitat and wildlife for future generations."

I’ve always had to watch myself. My family is not naturally thin and we put on weight quickly. I find low-carb works for me. My tummy has always been my problem area. I’ve never seen an ab, no matter how many crunches I do."

On having kids with husband John Legend:
"I’m waiting for things to slow down, but things don’t seem to be slowing down, ever, so I think, ‘Just have one and deal with it.’ I’d love to have an excuse to be bigger. People will know as soon as I’m pregnant because I’ll stop drinking.”

The World's Most Romantic Post

(Page 1) Let me ask you something, what inspires you? What excites you? I know being mean doesn't make you feel good, and I know you're better than that, and while I don't actually know you, I still believe in you. Let's think about what would give you true confidence, and allow it to make you better, bigger, stronger- a better athlete, a better student, a better singer, a better daughter. I'm going to share something with you. When we feel insecure, we bully. When we feel bad about ourselves we temporarily lift our spirits up by beating down others, and the only way to stop that is to find what actually makes us feel beautiful, smart, strong, healthy, and whole. I love how opinionated you are. Opinions are great, they build character, they develop the mind, but ONLY when they are based on facts. And as you get older, you'll see that your energy and opinions are valuable, and when you are fulfilled, secure, complete, and confident you'll use them to benefit you, not deplete you. Your mind is so powerful, so creative. For example, look at what you've done in this situation. You've used your imagination to create stories about people you don't even know, with such passion, such detail, you actually believe them to be true. THAT is how powerful your mind is. So, imagine what would happen if you decided to do something positive, something to change the world, to help someone, to change laws, to move mountains. With that amount of energy you could do anything! Idolizing someone you don't know is great, as it has only positive effects. It inspires you. It gives you something to look up to, someone to look up to. Hate does nothing for your soul. You don't grow. You actually shut yourself off from learning, from opportunities, your body literally shuts down. You become addicted to it. You become even more insecure. So let me ask you again, what makes you feel good? Let's focus on that. BE the generation that changed the world. BE the generation that broke the cycle of girls competing with one another, bringing each other down, pinning girls against each other. For what? What do you gain from that? (Page 1)
A photo posted by Nikki Reed (@iamnikkireed) on

(Page 2) Look inside for a second. Validation? No, only temporary feelings of superiority that come crashing down when your conscience kicks in and tells you you're being mean, you're being a bully, and deflates you. It's a viscous cycle because you're mean when you feel bad about yourself but yet you feel bad about yourself after you're mean. So let's break that cycle. Imagine what we could do, together, if we refocused all of that amazing energy and channeled it into something impactful. BE the girl who is strong enough to stand on her own and stop the bullying. Stand tall. BE curious, use that powerful mind of yours for something good. I don't know you but you seem like a bright, beautiful young lady. Show the world your colors. Don't fill yourself up with the false validation and temporary excitement you feel from putting other girls down. Lift them up and then you'll find you are actually lifting yourself up to. It's that simple. So let's find what makes you soar, Let's do it together. Love Nikki

Four Daily Tips From Oprah's Happiness Guru

Shawn Anchor, a former Harvard University staffer and current Happiness guru, recently spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about happiness. The publication quotes him as follows:

On his subscription to the Greek definition of happiness:
"The joy we feel when striving toward our potential. In the science of happiness, we are not studying fleeting pleasure, but a greater, more important sense of joy and fulfillment...everyone has the formula to success backwards. We are putting happiness as our goalpost for finishing a degree, getting an amazing job, etc. When you do that, you never allow yourself to be happy. Instead, the science shows that experiencing the happiness of daily life allows us to be better at everything we do.”

His daily "Happiness Hygiene" tips:
"1. Meditate for two minutes: This can be as simple as taking your hands off the keyboard and watching your breath go in and out.
2. Think of three unique things you’re grateful for and write them down.
3. Spend two minutes journaling about a positive experience — your brain literally relives that experience.
4. Spend two minutes writing a positive email each day. This will increase your levels of happiness and spread it to others, which we call the ripple effect."

Colin Farrell Talks Fame

Colin Farrell recently appeared on The Tavis Smiley Show, where he talked about fame. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by Page Six:

"Well, I was about as close to an overnight success in regards to the commercial stuff that came early on … it all happened really, really fast. So I can’t believe in the lie that’s being presented to me anymore: that I’m a movie star and that everything is great.  have this No. 1 movie, that one. Everyone is telling me now that that’s gone. So it was kind of like, ugh … all of it’s a delusion. Telling me it’s gone is a delusion. Ever believing that it was there in the first place is a delusion. When I used to go, ‘I don’t care about any of it,’ I really cared then. I just didn’t know how to acknowledge it or express my caring. I didn’t understand it. Now, I still care, but I care less, really. And it’s freed me up. That’s the irony, it’s freed me up.”

A Birkin Bag By Any Other Name...

Ah, the Hermes Birkin bag. A status symbol for the rich which can go for more than $100,000 per bag. The Birkin bag, which made its debut in 1984, is named for it-girl Jane Birkin. However, Birkin has taken issue with some of Hermes' practices. She recently released the following statement, as reprinted by The Hollywood Reporter:

"Having been alerted to the cruel practices reserved for crocodiles during their slaughter to make Hermes handbags carrying my name...I have asked Hermes to debaptise the Birkin Croco until better practices in line with international norms can be put into place."

Ramona Singer Opens Up About Life Without Mario

Ramona Singer recently opened up to Page Six about life without her soon to be ex-husband Mario. The publication quotes her as follows:

"Forgiveness is very important. I forgive [Mario]. Sometimes people just lose their way and you can’t help them find it...I realized it was completely over last August. Two people need to try to make a relationship work and if you’re both not in it to win it, it’s not going to happen. I can’t go anywhere without someone recognizing me and that bothered him. Men like to feel important and it takes a very secure man [to live with that]. I think … turning 60 changed him."

On her romantic future:
"I’m dating – not putting any labels on anything. When you’ve been in a relationship for many years, you don’t want to jump into anything too quickly. I’m living in the present. I learned a lot from the betrayal of my ex. It kind of made my barriers drop a lot and it’s made me a softer, more compassionate person. I only know I’ve never looked better. My dream guy would be someone who is not threatened by me. I would need someone who is very bright because I feel I’m very intelligent, someone who has children in college or older, someone who has a great sense of humor and doesn’t take anything too seriously. Someone I can cook a meal with. We could have a bottle of wine and watch ‘Game of Thrones’ on TV in bed naked or whip up a dinner party for 18 people or go out on the town and dance. I would want someone just as happy walking around in jeans and a T-shirt as a tux. Is that asking too much?”

Mariah Carey Getting Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Considering all of the people that have received one recently, I would have thought that Mariah got one years ago. But Page Six is reporting that Mariah Carey is finally getting her star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame. She will be the recipient of the 2,556th star in a ceremony to talk place on August 5th, which will be attended by Lee Daniels, LA Reid, and Brett Ratner.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Overlap

While working on a film just a couple of years ago, this pretty actress from a famous family fell in love with one of her male costars. The relationship progressed, and they eventually got engaged. Sweet, right?

A couple of years later, our actress started working on a film with a different handsome male actor. Uh oh. They began having an affair, and, long story short, our actress broke off her engagement with the first actor to be with the second actor.

Now, many months later, she is finally being seen in public with the second male actor. However, their publicists REALLY don’t want you to view our actress as some sl*tty girl who had an affair behind her fiance’s back. And they REALLY don’t want you to view our second actor as some horndog of a guy who broke up the engagement. Why ruin two such promising careers and two such stellar reputations when you can just lie about it?

So everyone is going to pretend that new relationship is completely separate from the old one. They are going to pretend that she is such a lucky girl to have found such a great guy well AFTER she suffered the terrible heartbreak of a broken engagement. (There was no affair! There was no cheating! The two relationships didn’t overlap at all!) And the public will root for this very good girl and her very handsome savior when they shine as a new couple in the spotlight of their film’s premiere together later this year.

But you’ll know the truth. Her affair with the second actor broke up her engagement with the first actor. Cheating, cheating, cheating. Overlap, overlap, overlap.

BRAPPP Blind Item - University in the UK

I know I’m posting a lot of blinds about this huge show lately, but I have a couple of reliable sources that keep delivering gold. This B-list actress on the show visits a university in the UK often. She keeps it fairly secret. It’s just a shame that she doesn’t keep her partying and drug-taking a secret. This actress will show up at a uni party, take tons of drugs (in secluded areas) and flirt with everyone in the room before returning to her own home. Her family know she has a dependency on drugs, but she’s technically an adult and they have no control over her,

A little hint: check out any non-professional pictures of this actress (red carpet, candid etc.) and you’ll see that she’s on something. It’s probably hard to notice unless you’re looking for it. Her family is looking for it and they have noticed it.

Kardashian Korner

Khloe Kardashian covers this month's Complex Magazine. Inside, she opens up about ex-husband Lamar Odom. The magazine quotes her as follows:

"I talked to Lamar this morning. I talk to Lamar as often as I can, which is inconsistent, but not on my terms. When you genuinely feel like that was the right relationship, you’re supposed to give it all you can. That’s what marriage is about. It’s not, 'Let’s see if it works, if not we always have divorce.' I am not one of those girls. You took a vow before God and you’re supposed to abide by that. I’m not rushing into my divorce because I’m not looking to get married tomorrow, so I don’t have a deadline. I’m not rushing it. So when it’s time and it’s supposed to happen, it will. 

Lamar is genuinely one of the best people I’ve ever met, and everyone says that when they meet him. I think Lamar’s gonna always be that person [for me] but that’s what made it so special. Even if I had it for five years or whatever, it was the best ever and I’m grateful I did. Some people don’t get that ever and I had that magic for a long time. I miss what we had—things we got to do together are just memories. I like looking back and holding on to that stuff. I definitely miss it, and there’s times I’ll get so sentimental and so sad, but this had to happen for some reason. I’ll figure it out over time, someone will give me that answer eventually. I think it would be very f---ing weird if I didn’t miss it."
