2Laura Linney Seems Like a Cool Chick

She also played roles in two of my favorite movies — Love Actually and The Mothman Prophecies. That Mothman shit was pretty freaky, wasn’t it? I had nightmares for weeks and anxiety about bridges for months after seeing that for the first time. Crazy.

Linney recently sat down for an interview with Prevention magazine and discussed everything from aging, to her diet, to recent stints on Broadway:

You starred on Broadway in Time Stands Still [which reopens with Linney on September 23] with famously vegan Alicia Silverstone. Did she help shape your diet?
I love Alicia – she had an enormous influence on me. I burst with pride over her book [The Kind Diet]. And she said, “You don’t have to be one thing or the other, just figure out what’s best for you.” I had been so rigid in my thinking about if I was going to be a vegetarian, if I was going to be a vegan. I don’t have to put that pressure on myself. I”m just trying to learn what the best diet is for me.

What kind of changes have you made?
Well, I certainly feel better now that I’m barely eating meat. I don’t feel as heavy, my digestion is better, my skin is better – even my hair is better! And I feel healthier when I don’t eat dairy, but that’s really hard for me – I love cheese. But food is not just nutritional, it’s mental, so you know, if I need a little chocolate every once in a while, I need a little chocolate.

5Lindsay Lawyers Up With Robert Shapiro (Yes, OJ Simpson’s Former Attorney)

Clearly, she’s shooting for the stars. After a week or so of searching for, you know, The Best Lawyer Ever, Linsday’s set her sights on Robert Shapiro — the man who did the impossible and got OJ Simpson off on capital charges for the murders of his wife and Ron Goldman.

Sources close to Lindsay say that she’s doing everything in her power — and in the power of prolific attorneys — to avoid jail time, and to secure a more “comfortable” place in a rehab or other similar facility.

Lindsay is supposed to begin her stint in the pokey on July 20th. And I can’t fucking wait. If this lawyer somehow finagles a deal with Judge Revel that changes Lindsay’s ultimate location, I’m going to be pissed, for real. You know, not as pissed as when OJ Simpson got away with murder was found innocent, ’cause that’s a horse of a different color, but it’s a big, fucking, nasty, fly-ridden horse all the same.

Lindsay needs to do this thing the hard way this time, or she’s never going to learn.

11There’s Probably No One on Earth Who Can Hate Michelle Williams

She just seems so damned likable, doesn’t she? Plus, she dated Heath Ledger (RIP, you talented, talented buddy, you), Spike Jonze (another uber-talented dude that seemed pretty nice to boot), and most recently — and allegedly, of course — Ryan Gosling. Who is just … amazing. All pretty solid choices, at least from an outsider’s perspective.

Shelly (can I call you Shelly, dear? OK, cool.  Shelly it is.) just seems terribly down-to-earth and normal, and someone who you could totally just kick back and watch chick flicks with. Or action-splatter movies, or porn, or whatever your poison is, really. She also kind of emanates that old-Hollywood beauty, where even in schleppy sweat-shorts and a really unfortunate-looking tank top (or whatever the fuck that thing up there is), she looks classy and refined.

Above, Michelle is photographed taking a smoke break on her latest film project, Take This Waltz, which is being filmed in Toronto, Canada.

Oh, and by the way, has anyone seen that movie I was telling you about, Blue Valentine with Williams in it? Is it great? Is it awful? Isn’t the scenery beautiful, if you have seen it? Yeah. I used to live there.

So, anyway, my point is that if you don’t like Michelle Williams, or you harbor ill will toward her, it’s akin to hating baby seal pups and, like, wanting to punch them in the face.

5Jake Isn’t the Only One Who Hates Vienna These Days

According to exclusive prying into personal business sources at RadarOnline, Vienna Girardi’s ex-boyfriend (no, not this one here, a different one, but this one can’t spell, either) is pissed to the point where he’s spitting nails and wants to punch his former lover in the face.

RadarOnline got a hold of some pretty incriminating — and threatening — text messages sent to Vienna by her ex-boyfriend, Brian Lee Smith, who claims that she broke his heart, so for retribution, he wants to break her face:

Brian: “It’s your turn to once get alittle of the pain I feel if I will nit lie or make up anything all truth oh btw I’ll be comin to la soon…for the record u told me I could if u hurt me again (in those fake emails) lol”

Vienna: “Please stop! Look I get that your upset but this isn’t the way to get me back.”

Brian: “Upset is not the word I want to punch you in the face and whatever I say deny it’s cool I have proof on everything! I’m not dumb I won’t say anything I can’t back up…Just to show I’m a better person than u I sold u out for free!!!!!! I would not except one penny…f**k u Vienna hope ur happy now it’s your turn look like a f**king idot.”
