"He sprays too" reveal


Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston got married last month. Guess what? He’s doing press now for season 2 of The Leftovers, premiering on HBO and HBO Canada on October 4. Convenient!

As expected, he’s being asked about the wedding and the honeymoon and their friends joining them in Bora Bora. Why? Because it was more fun that way. I kind of agree. Like if I had that kind of money, hanging out with all my friends at a resort? Not having to worry about my luggage getting lost on the way home? And having to pay for all the excursions and meals for the next six months?

Anyway, JT, but not John Travolta, ahem, was also asked about whether or not Jen would be changing her last name. She actually changed it for Brad Pitt. I remember she even had letterhead made as Jennifer Pitt. Justin says he doesn’t think it’s a good idea, because people will still just end up calling her Jennifer Aniston anyway. She’s a brand after all. Now they’re a brand together. I’m telling you, this is a great partnership. She’s found a true partner.

He sprays too


"22 September 2015 Smutty Shout-Outs" clue


It was pouring on Saturday night for the Legend premiere at TIFF. And the fans, they stood out there in the rain, waiting patiently for Tom Hardy. Meanwhile, I was under the red carpet awning, waiting impatiently for an interview. It didn’t happen.

The film was supposed to start at 9:30pm. Tom arrived around 9:05pm and spent almost half an hour rewarding the crowd for their dedication, taking pictures, shaking hands, so that when he finally stepped onto the carpet, he was soaked.

Water dripped down his face, down his neck, off his fingers…

He wiped himself down with his hands, from his head, across his cheeks, down his chest…

And I got to watch that. For several minutes, I got to watch wet Tom Hardy. It almost made up for not talking to him because at that point he had to get into the theatre. But maybe that was the bonus of spending time with fans – he hates the media, he hates press, he hates promotion. And the fans are a great excuse to not have to participate.

I say excuse because, well, George Clooney does both, you know? He gets there early enough so that the fans get their time and the press gets their time. Going forward, the press will probably be getting less and less of Tom Hardy’s time. Because an awkward incident went down at the Legend presser that set him off. One of the reporters decided to ask about Tom’s sexuality related to his character’s sexuality, citing a quote that Tom gave a few years ago about his sexual experimentation. Click here to see how Tom responded. I like how he handled it. So the good news is… he can actually be good at press. The bad news is… he doesn’t want to be when this kind of sh-t happens. Thing is, when he doesn’t want to be, he makes it hard for the people who are trying on his behalf to do their jobs. That’s not media either. It’s the people he works with at the studio. It’s the publicists who are there to support the film, the work of the entire cast and crew.

As for Tom on the TIFF party circuit – not much gossip there. He went to Soho House but didn’t shut the place down or anything, more like a “I’ll show my face for a minute and get the f-ck out” appearance. He’s still in town though so I’ll keep you posted.

22 September 2015 Smutty Shout-Outs


Last night was the Boston premiere of Black Mass. Black Mass opens this weekend. So does Sicario. Click here for Sarah’s review of Black Mass and click here for Joanna’s review of Sicario. Also click here for my thoughts on Sicario and Benicio Del Toro. My recommendation would be to go see Sicario first.

Here’s a question though: how many old man jackets does Johnny Depp own? I call this one his manila envelope blazer. Which he thinks is badass while the rest of us are wondering what the f-ck. Is she wondering what the f-ck?

Picture Him On Top Of You.

Do it. Don’t pretend it’s 10 years ago either. Open your eyes and look at him now and play the game the way it’s supposed to be played. Picture Him On Top Of You. Inside of you.

How did we get here? How did we get to the point where Johnny Depp is a Picture Him On Top Of You?

As for “never make eye contactAmber and the drama that she brings into his life, sometimes he has to get away from it, hide from it. That’s a clue. But a source told me this week that he also gets off on it. Like that’s the kind of sh-t that makes him feel young, makes him feel wanted. Like of course she’s difficult – in his mind, beautiful, 25-ish women should be difficult. Otherwise they’d be boring. Otherwise he’d be boring. He hasn’t figured out yet that middle age clichés are boring?

Why he's sleeping on the couch


Matt asked me for a birthday blind so who’s the douchebag who justifies his hate for media but can’t justify what a dick he is to the people who work to support him? For someone who fronts like he’s so tough, all he ever does is whinge about how nobody takes care of him, how nobody knows what he wants for lunch, and when he’s done moaning about that, his mean streak kicks in and he doesn’t stop until he’s made people cry. There’s no defence for being a coddled movie star and berating someone until they run out of the room, sobbing. This is why he’s off the list.
