    Oooh, Valentino’s collections are always sooo beautiful and romantic! Ugh, AnnE is totally going to cheese up the poor dress of choice.

    As for JLaw, I actually think she looked more like a long-haired Justin Timberlake! Like, you could convince me that the kid was him with overgrown locks.

  2. Alarmjaguar says:

    I heart Dot Com so much! I’d love to see much, much more of his character!

  3. Alarmjaguar says:

    And that Gawker article is terrifying – esp because people don’t always pay attention to what’s going on (including me)! But the people running the Republican party infuriate me – instead of changing to fit their party to the needs of the modern world (which voted against them in the last two elections!), they are going to bend the system to their point of view, democracy be damned!

    • Lucinda says:

      Okay, aren’t districts lines drawn based upon population. When the census comes out, lines are redrawn to reflect changing populations. So each district that gets a vote should have roughly the same number of people. A district might be geographically larger in a rural area but would have the same number of people as a smaller district in an urban area. Plus, if the extra votes go to the person who wins the most districts and therefore the most votes, how is this favoring someone with fewer votes? It seems to me, by this system, Romney would have still lost because he got fewer votes but the electoral vote would have better reflected the popular vote…unless I am completely missing something. Huffpo is notoriously liberal (much like Fox is conservative) so I don’t really trust it’s interpretation of this bill. Living in a rural area and a rural state with few electoral votes, I’d love a candidate to have to work a little harder for my vote. Right now my vote does not count if all we count are electoral votes.

    So many good links today!

    Damon + Kimmel = damn their shtick is still funny

    I agree that Anne will wear Valentino to the Oscars but I don’t think it will be the red dress. I’m leaning more towards a variation of the dresses with ruffles or the super dramatic pale gold dress.

    Yesterday i listened to the call Christian Bale made to the boy w cancer – and I’ve always loved Bale, but I fell in love with the boy. So cute.

    8th grade Jennifer Lawrence looks like Justin Timberlake.

  6. Jackson says:

    Hmmm. If AH picks from that collection I see her in one of the pale ones. Perhaps the coffee-colored one with the long sleeves, third row, second one in.

  7. The Original Mia says:

    That was great! Love Matt. Haven’t been liking him too much in the last year, though because he’s come off as kinda holier than thou & a general stick in the mud. Good to see he hasn’t changed & still has a sense of humor.

  8. carrie says:

    the way of Nicole Kidman to say hello to Jimmy is shocking (LOL)

  9. Ms Kay says:

    Hmmm well the Pajiba list, Chiwetel Ejiofor is the British actor I fell for before Idris Elba came along and he still makes me go “Idris who??” it’s true he didn’t get a big gigs as Idris Elba did, I hope we get to see more of him, he is a great actor in films and also on stage.

    Ha Tony Leung!.. one of my many Asian husbands :-) he made my heart flutter in In The Mood for Love and hate him in Lust : Caution… He was great in Infernal Affairs (of which the remake is The Departed).

    Funny thing is Sandra Oh, first time I ever saw her was in Sideways, she had a minor role but was good.

    Rosario Dawson has a decent career though…

    There are many other actors that underrated but to each their own list methinks…

    • j.eyre says:

      ahem – yesterday I was talking up Chiwetel so you just step aside, missy.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Miss Eyre, you little scamp! I turn my back for one day (or in this case, one week) & I miss you mentioning a gorgeous man.

        Please try to do better next time, sweet thing.

      • j.eyre says:

        @EsCon – I brought him up on the Bond thread – saying he was my choice. And then Kay-Doo took him from me like she does everyone else. I tell you what – THAT one is getting a few slipped stitches in the next scarf I knit for her, that’s for darn sure.

        But you missed my foaming at the mouth over Ewan… and then Miss Kiki took him after I had won him.

        Honest to Christmas, darling, I don’t seem to have the hang of this at all.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Jane! Look what happened while I was away:


        I am too shell-shocked to form coherent sentences. I have turned in my English major card. First, I was utterly horrified by Cumby in character as Assange (with that egregious hairdo) & then he goes & puts THAT thing on his head? Are those little hat ears, on the head of a man in his late thirties?

        And does it cause me to love him any less? No, damnit, it doesn’t. What am I to do, Miss Eyre? -sniffle- You will have to do the thinking for both of us now. (Imagine sobbing emoticon here.)

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Update: False alarm. I love the teddy ear hat now. Really, I think it’s cute as hell. I’ll save my outrage for when Cumby’s 13-year-old fan tribes send him a full-head giant Panda hat with ear flaps, & he wears it.

      • j.eyre says:

        Oh my stars EsCon! Mr. Rochester had to break out the salts to revive me – I was in crisis mode and we both know I do not fare well in that way for long.

        I am stockpiling cheeseburgers to lure the 13 y-os into our Jaguar trap for when the Panda-Hat Caper happens.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        My dear Miss Eyre,

        I am so relieved to hear that Mr. Rochester was able to find the case of smelling salts that Uncle Cumberbatch Adams & I brought to Thornfield for Christmas last year. I was a bit concerned about the practicality of this as a Christmas prezzie, as I feared it might be years before you would be near enough to the fainting couch, & Mr. Rochy near enough to the smelling salts, to use them together, magically, at the same time. I hated to think of you being dragged down the stairs from the attic by your chignon, your crisp white apron in tatters.

        Do forgive me for ever doubting you.

        One more thing, though—the hordes of 13 year old Cumber-twinkies? (Not old enough to be called Cumberbitches yet, don’t you agree?) It has occurred to me that the basis for their passion for him is this: They think he is a 13 year old girl, too. And his wearing cute little hats is doing nothing to snap them out of it. So, probably best to continue stockpiling cheeseburgers as planned. How resourceful you are!

    • Ms Kay says:

      @ j.eyre read my virtual lips : *NEVER*

    • LL says:

      Erm, both of ya’ll need to step off. Idris has been mine since AbFab. I would be willing to share Chiwetal.

    • j.eyre says:

      SEE Kay-Doo – LL shares. It’s not that hard.

      LL – may I compliment you on your stable.

    • Thiajoka says:

      Idris! A man I would actually fight another woman for.

    • LAK says:

      Ms kay, step away from my now and forever husband Tony Lueng.

      We’ve been together since CHUNGKING EXPRESS.

      • Ms Kay says:

        Ahhhh that is when I met my other Asian husband Takeshi Kaneshiro… *heart eyes*

        Both played with Andy Lau, another great actor too, he seems to like playing conflicted characters, bad guys with a but of humanity…

        Have you ever watched A Bittersweet Life, Korean action drama? The main actor is amazing too!

        And no, we’ve been married for a while with Tony. Sounds like the bastard had a busy life… But I forgive him I love him damn too much! I’ll Never Let Go…

    • EscapedConvent says:

      @ Kay-Doo,

      Hey Girl, did someone mention Chiwetel Ejiafor? Oh for God’s sake! I LOVE him! I think this is the first time I’ve seen anyone mention him. I don’t know where I first saw him, but I was hooked immediately. Gorgeous, elegant, Sigh.

      Why is this man not in more films? He’s a *great* actor.

  10. Thiajoka says:

    Ah, Dot Com, we love you and appreciate you!

    The running gag between Kimmel and Damon is great!

  11. Mia 4S says:

    There are also pictures of Christian Bale and his family at Disneyland with the blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng and his family. Apparently Bale treated them.

    This is no crush, I think I love him.

  12. Alli says:

    I’m sorry Benedict, but I would give up our Cumberbabies just to have Matt Damon wink at me.

  13. Isa says:

    LMAO@ Matt… Great job.

    Wow demi Moore changed her face completely. Fired your doctor please.

    Loved Nicole humping Jimmy. So good to see her having fun.

    Andy Garcia; priceless.
    So much fun watching the show

  14. april says:

    Demi looked so different and not for the better. I could also tell that Nicole had a lot of tweeking done, and it wasn’t that great.

  15. Louise says:

    This is the best thing in a long time!! One night I don’t barf over *Matt Damon* (Team America)

  16. hairball says:

    Wow, both Demi and Nicole’s faces look so PLASTIC and poor.

    LOVED the show though!

  17. lisa2 says:

    I was so shocked when I saw Demi’s face. It was so puffy. Then my eyes traveled to the tale tale neck. I remember her talking so passionately about not doing plastic surgery, and looking at her face. Just really sad.

    Jimmy’s shows have gotten so much better since the first show. Funny people bring the funny.

  18. lucy2 says:

    Anne has worn some pretty Valentino’s before, but my favorite red carpet gown of her was the Armani she wore when she was nominated before. She’s bugging me lately, but she often has good taste in gowns.

    I think Tina has lived in Switzerland for ages now, so I doubt it’s a tax thing at this point in her career.

    Matt and Nicole were great!

  19. Jayna says:

    Matt is so talented. He pulled off a whole show, not easy. I remember some show I happened to turn on to one night and it was something honoring Matt Damon. It was a dinner with all the wives at the tables. The celebs getting up were hysterical. Ben Affleck was really funny, comparing where their careers went after their first movie. This was before The Town, I think. But when Matt got up to accept at the end, he killed and really made such fun of Ben. He went after every celeb that had basically roasted him before and it was when I realized how funny and natural he is.

  20. Jayna says:

    Nicole was so pretty and natural at the Sundance Festival, but here she still looks like she has too much cheek filler on this show. I don’t get why she wants to do it, but not as bad as a year ago or two.

    Demi obvously had something done. From the side you see that odd look that tells you they had something done with filler. She has that odd flat look that is filled out though more than her face used to be.

    These women don’t realize their eyes always end up looking smaller with their bigger faces.
