After her split from husband Chris Martin, the Goop goddess, 41, has reconnected with an old friend, The Social Network star Max Minghella, 28, a source revealed.
But Minghella, who has dated House of Cards beauty Kate Mara, 31, on and off for four years, is still firmly on Mara’s arms.
Now-unattached mom-of-two Paltrow, however, “jokes that she wants to adopt Max,” the source added.
Minghella, who, like Martin, is British, is the son of Paltrow’s late friend Anthony Minghella, who directed her in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
Lately, Paltrow “has allowed Max to use her ritzy Los Angeles house when she’s not staying there, as he usually lives modestly in Hollywood.”
Well, that sounds… weird. Does Max not have a house in LA? Would he not stay with Kate Mara? It’s all bizarre, but I doubt this will turn into anything. Gwyneth needs to chillax a bit, though. Call that dude you were kissing at that baseball game, girl!
To be honest, I’d never seen Kate Mara in anything before House of Cards – at least not anything I remembered, anyway. However, I really liked her in the show and she got on my radar because of it (and very quickly fell off, if you get my drift). Now she’s in a new movie with Johnny Depp called Transcendence and has been doing promo for it, popping by Jimmy Kimmel Live this week and being totally adorable while there.
There’s not much to this besides the fact that I think she’s pretty endearing and would love to see her do more. Enjoy!

The Golden Globes happened last night and man, what a trainwreck! People were drunk and cursing all over the place. And Clooney wasn’t even there.
But you know what was there? The best, worst, and most WTF celebrity fashion had to offer. Let’s take a look through all these GG outfits and pick out which ones were deserving of BEST, WORST, and WTF.
In fact, Kate Mara is so hot that ever since I saw her in Brokeback Mountain, she makes me want to do things to her. Nice things. Yes, I have girl-crushes, and yes, I have affinity for redheads. Deal with it.
But this isn’t about me, and certainly not about the way Kate Mara’s lips make me feel. This is about the fact that she is so much more… full of life than her sister Rooney. Kate Mara stars in Netflix’s new remix of the British miniseries House of Cards along with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, and I know I’m going to be watching it because the reviews are so flattering. The show is directed by David Fincher, who was responsible for some of the greatest movies ever (Se7en, Fight Club), and for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, where the ‘Mara connection’ comes from, I suppose. Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure:
Right, so, for Elle‘s latest issue, Ryan Murphy decided to take the female stars from his current television projects (like Glee and American Horror Story) and threw them all together as the leads in classic horror movies like The Birds, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, and my personal favorite, The Creature from the Black Lagoon.
What followed was a bunch of pretty neat photos with an authentic retro slant to them, and Lea Michele as the creature from the black lagoon. I mean, IN The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Wait. No, sorry. Purely a Freudian slip, as I’m sure you understand. I heard the Creature has better plastic surgeons than Lea and her team do, and infinitely better taste in men than … Ashton Kutcher of all fools.
Check out actresses like Michele, Kate Mara, Diana Agron, Jayma Mays and others in the gallery, and be sure to take a good, long look at the photo with Lea Michele in The Creature from the Black Lagoon. I’m just saying, of course.
Last night the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) hosted its annual awards ceremony in New York City. As you might expect, the red carpet was kind of fantastic. A billion pics in the gallery below.
