Hey Idiots, Jennifer Lawrence Didn't Dis Meryl Streep — She Was Quoting First Wives Club

Rich Juzwiak · 01/16/13 11:40AM

On the Late Show with David Letterman last night, smart-mouthed superstar Jennifer Lawrence explained her controversial acceptance speech for Best Actress - Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for Silver Linings Playbook at Sunday's Golden Globes. "What does it say? I beat Meryl," is how she opened her speech, and she explained to Letterman that she was referencing the 1996 revenge comedy The First Wives Club. She didn't mention, though, that she was also referencing the truth, because she did, in fact, beat Meryl Streep, who was nominated for Hope Springs.

What Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton's BFF Selfie Photo (Probably) Looks Like

Max Read · 12/03/12 09:35AM

Last night, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep did what any self-respecting pair of BFFs does when they're together at "the club" (in this case, the Kennedy Center Honors gala): they took a selfie. Unfortunately, we don't have access to Streep's iPhone, and will likely never see the original photo. But we can imagine what they might have done with it afterward, in the social image editor of their choice:

The Iron Lady With a Laugh Track

The Iron Lady, the Margaret Thatcher biopic for which Dame Edna won an Oscar earlier this year, is out on DVD/Blu-ray/subway bootleg today. But more importantly, it is pure camp. Please accept this reel of highlights with an accompanying laugh track as evidence.

Which Celebrities Would You Let Raise Your Kids?

Drew Magary · 03/30/12 02:26PM

If you have kids of your own, you know how insane it is when some famous idiot like Angelina Jolie is talking to a magazine and is like, "Oh, we all hang out at home together and watch movies in bed!" Of course you do. I'm sure flying to Cambodia to shoot ludicrous Louis Vuitton ads only takes five minutes out of your day. The rest is all dedicated to you and your 12,000 little ones.

Drunk & Disorderly: Faces Of The Golden Globes

Timothy Burke · 01/16/12 08:00AM

Awards shows are compelling because they're occasions for the rich, famous, and beautiful to go above and beyond to the apogee of glamor. The Golden Globes, however—mostly due to the mass quantities of alcohol and other substances in close proximity—are often the occasion for the glamorous to become beastlike in the blink of an eye. (Except Kate Winslet. She is never not absolutely fabulous.)

You Don't Bleep Meryl Streep

Or play her off! And, David Fincher, just give her the damned glasses. Come on.

The Iron Lady: At Least the Soundtrack Will Be Good

Max Read · 11/14/11 10:24PM

Here's the first non-teaser trailer for the new Meryl Streep-starring Margaret Thatcher biopic The Iron Lady. She nails the voice! But is "heroic" really the right tone for a Thatcher movie? (Or "funny," for that matter?) Or maybe the studios are just hoping that no one remembers who she was, so they can sell her as a transcendental figure, rather than a venal, racist warmonger and friend of oppressive regimes the world over? Whatever the case, the soundtrack is going to be good, for sure. Never has a single individual inspired so much great music!
