Jennifer Lawrence broke the news this week that the next X-Men movie, titled Apocalypse, will be her last of the film franchise. J. Law, as you may know, plays the mutant Mystique / Raven Darkhölme in the current franchise but after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse she won’t appear in any other X-Men Movies:
“It is my last one, actually, yes.”
There were rumors that she might star in her own Mystique movie spin-off but her statement seems to deny that that will happen. This does make sense. Now that Jennifer is an Academy Award-winning actress, she can be done with the kiddie movies and work exclusively in more serious roles. She will likely star in every David O. Russell movie that that man makes from here on out so … yes, I understand. Still, it’ll be sad once she leaves the role. J. Law makes an excellent Mystique, as is evidenced by the photos collected in this gallery. Who ever slips into the latex and blue paint next will have some very big shoes to fill.
Kanye West spent some really cute quality time with his only begotten child, North West, over the past few days which resulted in a pair of really cute photos for you to check out. I know, I know … Kanye can be an irritating blowhard
some most of the time but when he’s in daddymode with North, he is truly much more palatable. Daddy Kanye took little Nori to ballet class recently … then he took her for a trip to the beach. Kanye‘s wife happily shared a pair of photos on her Instagram profile which are absolutely worth seeing … in spite of the source ;) Check out the photos below. More »

Two years ago, back in May 2013, Angelina Jolie revealed to the world that she underwent a preemptive double mastectomy in order to reduce her risk of developing breast cancer after she tested positive for the BRCA1 gene (which revealed a 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer). Today, Angelina reveals in an op-ed written for the New York Times that she underwent surgery last week to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her risk of developing ovarian cancer. Angelina details her decision to have the surgery and its results very plainly, very honestly, very bravely. Click below to read excerpts from her piece today in the NYT and learn more about her brave decision to have this surgery and share the experience with the world. More »
On April 17, a horror movie for the new tech-obsessed social media generation will open in theaters and as you can see in the trailer above, it looks so terribly terrible that it’s bound to be a fun time at the movies. This movie tells the tale of a group of friends who are terrorized by someone or something posing online as their dead friend … and one by one, the friends get killed off while they videochat in a group Skype conference … or something along those lines. Not only does the premise sound terrible but you add a terrible name like Unfriended and you’ve got the must-see movie of the YEAR … or, you know, the movie that you’re kind of embarrassed to admit you want to see. This looks and sounds so dumb, I think I’ll have to check it out. Haha. Unfriended. Doesn’t this look like a horribly fun time at the movies? LOL.

At the start of this month we learned the very exciting news that the band Garbage is hitting the road later this year in support of the 20th anniversary of the release of the band’s self-titled debut album. Over the weekend, the official Facebook profile for the band was updated with very exciting details about the tour that reveals their upcoming 20 Years of Queer Tour will be 100% absolutely one of the MUST-SEE tours of 2015. Altho only a few dates have been revealed thus far, Garbage promises that they will be announcing new tourdates soon AND they have revealed that this tour will feature the band performing the entirety of their self-titled debut album LIVE including b-side songs that were released in support of the album 20 years ago. I believe the words you are looking for are HOLY SHIZZ!!! More »
Yesterday was a great Sunday Funday at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with my Sons of Anakin friends. Not only did we get to the business of having lots of fun, like we always do when we get together, but we also officially welcomed a new prospect/apprentice into the fold. In order to become a member of SoA, you have to hang out with us for a few weeks to see if everyone gets along (which isn’t hard to do because we are fun to hang out with). Then, like we did yesterday, we determine if we would like to extend the offer to have someone begin the official prospecting process to see if they would like to join the group. We’ve been hanging out with our new friend Alex for a month now so it was time to make him a Sons of Anakin apprentice. More »
A couple of weeks ago we saw fun photos of the superpregs Kate Middleton paying a visit to the set of Downton Abbey, currently in filming production of its 6th season. Today we learn the sad news that season 6 of Downton will likely be the last. Altho news of Downton‘s end has yet to be officially confirmed, the rumor is that the upcoming 6th season will be the final season of the series. On the one hand, it’s always a good thing when a successful project can end on a high note, on its own terms. On the other hand, it really sucks when a great show has to come to an end … especially when it’s still a very good show. Obvs, I have mixed feelings about this news. More »
