Are you the type of person who gets excited enough to approach a celebrity in public? Then the following message is for you. If you see Jennifer Lawrence, do not approach. Do not make eye contact. Do not shout out “Hey Hunger Games!” from across the street unless you want a heavy dose of RUDE.
On Wednesday we learned that Quentin Tarantino was putting the finishing touches on a script about the Manson Family murders, and that filming of said movie could possibly begin a year from now. We also learned that some of the actors approached about the film included Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, and Margot Robbie. One source claimed that Quentin was eyeing Margot for the role of Manson Family victim Sharon Tate.
Of course, everything is still speculative. But TMZ recently got Sharon Tate’s sister’s thoughts on the matter, and she has some casting ideas of her own. Specifically, that Jennifer Lawrence shouldn’t play Sharon.
According to a report from security firm ESET (via The Independent), a Russian hacking group named Turla committed digital deviousness by using Britney Spears’ Instagram page to spread malware. On February 6th, a user named asmith2155 left a comment on a picture of Britney in a bodysuit that read: “#2hot make loved to her, uupss #Hot #X.” The user was actually a Turla hacker, and the comment contained a link to a malicious Firefox extension designed to steal people’s data. Basically, it was a virus. No word on whether or not Britney responded to the hacking news like this:
Fortunately, only 17 people clicked on that link. ESET calls that number “quite low” (sorry Turla!), and thinks it might have been a test hack. Or maybe nobody wanted to learn more about asmith2155’s 2hot tips for making loved. The picture is still up, but the comment has been deleted. Those hackers might want to work a little harder on their bait next time. That comment was filled with spelling errors, nonsense hashtags, and random empty flattery. If you want more than 17 clicks, you’ve got to at least attempt to look a little different than most of the other fan comments on a Britney pic.
Just in case you needed yet another reminder that Hollywood is still a major bummer for some women past the age of fuckable, here you go. Jamie Denbo, aka Ginsberg on Orange Is the New Black and one-half of the very funny Ronna & Beverly, explained on Twitter last week that she was informed that, at 43, she’s too old to play the wife of a 57-year-old man. Only in Hollywood is a 14-year age gap considered too narrow.
Serena Williams is having a baby with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Onahian. I’m sure some in the tennis world responded by congratulating her or getting on the phone with Wilson and ordering a dozen or so custom-made infant-sized racquets with “future GOAT” printed on the handle. Romanian tennis champion Ilie Nastase acknowledged Serena’s big news by keeping true to his nickname and telling a nasty-ish joke about the baby growing inside her. Not surprisingly, Serena is not here for it.
The cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunited in the pages of Entertainment Weekly to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. That reunion made a whole lot of fans of the show wonder: “Where in the hell are Giles and Faith? Did they get lost on the way to the reunion? Are they hiding behind a prop grave?” Sarah Michelle Gellar explained that Giles (Anthony Head) was doing a play in London. But no one had a reason for why Eliza Dushku was absent.
