  6. Supergirl Pilot Leaks Online Way Ahead of Series Debut

    Or "leaks," depending on your level of skepticism.

    The Supergirl pilot isn't scheduled to officially air on CBS until November, but a high-quality version has leaked online in one of the earliest leaks for a TV show. Really, we don't blame people for being that unable to wait.

  8. Bill Murray IS Bill Murray IN the Teaser for Sophia Coppola’s A Very Murray Christmas on Netflix

  10. Surprise! As It Turns Out, Rebel Wilson Is Actually Who-the-Hell-Cares-How-Old

    Can't imagine why a woman in Hollywood wouldn't want people knowing her age...

    For the past few days, everyone has been very concerned with digging into the actual age of Rebel Wilson after news broke that she might not be the 29-year-old actor we thought and actually a 35-year-old illuminati lizard person destroying us all with her lies! We can only assume that upon hearing the confirmation that she's actually 35, Wilson collapsed into a pile of dust due to her exceedingly advanced age.

  11. Jem and the Holograms Producer Says Audiences Will Be “Pleasantly Surprised” by the Movie After Trailer Uproar

    Basically the direct opposite of how we felt about the trailer.

    We, along with pretty much the entire Internet, found the Jem and the Holograms trailer truly outrageous—and not in a good way. The film's star, Stefanie Scott, already came to the defense of the trailer, and now producer Jason Blum has weighed in, asking us to reserve judgment until we see the final product.

  13. Cate Blanchett: People Who Think Homophobia, Other Discrimination Are Over Are “Very Foolish”

    Some people in America lately seem to be convinced that we've entered some kind of future utopia where we've moved past racism, sexism, homophobia, and all other kinds of discrimination, and only the people who wish to have meaningful conversations about those subjects even notice such petty differences between people—despite the reality of daily discrimination. And Cate Blanchett has had it.

  15. Melissa McCarthy Tells Ellen DeGeneres “We Tear Down Women in This Country” in Response to Sexist Criticism

    Melissa McCarthy's journey (along with the rest of us) to make sure everyone knows that wildly sexist criticism—like the awful comments she got about Tammy—isn't OK will likely never end, and she discussed how we "tear women down" on Ellen. But it's not all bad news! She thinks she might have changed that critic's mind.
