Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner Hang Out In London, Part 2

Jul 11 2014 1:57pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Bromance! Bromance! Bromance! And this is a really good one. Please enjoy Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans partying together in London last night. I could be mistaken, but this might be the first time we’ve seen just the two of them out together. I’m loving it!

Gerard Butler had a day-time ice cream date with a mystery woman (of color)

Jun 17 2014 9:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Just Jared posted these photos of Gerard Butler and a “mystery woman” walking around NYC, and the Butler-loonie commenters went crazy. They went Full Dragonfly. And it just reminded me that every person has “their celebrity” that they go crazy for. For many of you, that’s Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston. For other people, it’s still G-But. Anyway, I don’t know if this is Gerard’s new girlfriend or if their eyes met in a porto-pot ...

The X-Men franchise is going to continue its trend of time-hopping for its next installment, X-Men: Apocalypse.

Celebitchy Book Club: ‘The Light Between Oceans’ by M.L. Stedman

Jun 15 2014 7:47am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I can’t believe I actually chose The Light Between Oceans as our Celebitchy Book Club pick this week. It was on the top of a lot book club picks and I thought it sounded sort of interesting and I had just heard that it was going to be adapted into a movie, and Michael Fassbender might play the lead. NEVER AGAIN. Here’s the thing, though – when trying to describe the plot and why the book is awful, I actually made it sound sort of interesting. This is how I explained ...

A longtime fan of the X-Men hero Gambit, Tatum is in talks to play the character in the film franchise and because it’s been a very public ordeal, he cannot escape questions about it.While promoting 22 Jump Street, most interviewers squeezed in a question or two about him potentially playing the Ragin’ Cajun in an X-Men film. ...
