Katie Holmes & Tom Cruise Have Reached A Divorce Settlement

Well that was fast. Less than two weeks after Katie Holmes stunned Tom Cruise with divorce papers after 5 years of marriage, Holmes‘s attorney has announced that a divorce settlement has been reached between the parties. As you may recall, Katie filed for divorce in the state of New York … she also made it clear that she was going after full custody of the couple’s only child Suri. Just a couple of days ago, we learned that the attorneys were working on a settlement — but I don’t think anyone expected the settlement to be made so quickly. The fact that a divorce settlement has been reached so quickly and that the settlement announcement is being made by Katie‘s attorney leads me to believe that she is getting exactly what she wants from this surprisingly quick divorce. Specifics about the settlement have not been made public but I am more convinced than ever that Katie Holmes is in control and she is getting everything that she wants from her split from Tom. Click below to read the official statement released by Katie‘s attorney Jonathan Wolfe and also read the joint official statement released by Katie and Tom. More »

Can We Please Keep Talking About ‘Moonrise Kingdom’?

The hype may have died down, seeing as how the movie’s been out since May but I recently read that Wes Anderson‘s Moonrise Kingdom is one of a handful of indie films still doing really well at the box office. The film is now in its second week of wide release and managed to gross an additional $4.6 million. Ok, and the truth is I just saw it Saturday night and I need to talk about it with you guys! Lovers of Wes Anderson/Bill Murray/all things quirky and wonderful meet me inside for a short list of things Wes Anderson/Moonrise Kingdom taught me.

Watch: Jennifer Lawrence And Bradley Cooper In The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Trailer

Um. Why didn’t anybody tell me that Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Julia Stiles and, like, eight of my other favorite people have a new movie coming out? I know, that’s supposed to be my job. Still, I’m in shock at how good this looks– mainly because Bradley Cooper is usually not one of my faves… but all that may change in a moment. Check out Cooper and Lawrence playing “crazy” in love, inside.

Spike Lee Says Obama Will Be The Last Black President For Some Time

Many of us know that actor and Academy Award-winner Morgan Freeman was recently quoted as saying that Barack Obama is not the first black President, but rather the first mixed-race President. An interesting discussion went on in our comments over the nature of race and how we understand (and misunderstand) it in America. Oscar-nominated Director Spike Lee has now come out (in an interview unrelated to the conversation with Morgan Freeman) and declared that, should Obama lose, it will be the last time this country sees a black President for quite some time. I thought his statements worked in an interesting way alongside Freeman‘s. Check out bits of his interview with Vulture inside.

Katie Holmes Will Play A Single Mom In Her Next Film

Molly is a film co-written and co-produced by Katie Holmes who is, by the way, divorcing her husband Tom Cruise. In case ya missed it. While Molly makes for an interesting project (because Katie will be playing a single mother, as she becomes one herself), it’s one of a few new things the 33-year old actress has lined up. I’m not sure, but between this news and that Elle magazine shoot, it seems like things are really about to go down with Ms. Holmes! Deets inside.

This Guy Broke Into P. Diddy’s Mansion And Used His Toothbrush

And you thought you were obsessed with the celebrity lifestyle? Quamine Taylor may or may not be my newest hero, for he has seriously gone above and beyond in the name of celebrity. And more importantly, I think he just inadvertently knocked Diddy down a peg or two. I’m not one for celebrity-bashing but when you look at Diddy don’t you sometimes think: “Ugh! I hope a strange man named Quamine is totally using your toothbrush right this second!” Peep inside to get the hilarious deets on the story that can only be classified as today’s That-Ish-Cray of the Day.
