Ben Affleck is playing Batman and we’re all just going to have to deal with that. Director Zack Snyder, of the upcoming Batman V. Superman posted a tweet featuring a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman, AKA, Batfleck. Accompanying the tweet was simply “#75″. Here it is:
What do we think? There’s not a whole lot to go on. I’m impressed, he definitely looks like Batman, even with his Affleck chin. Does this make you more or less excited for the film?

Gwyenth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling” earlier this year, but there have been a million and one rumours about the possibility of them getting back together. They’re constantly hanging out together – more than any separated people usually do, even with kids in the picture – but don’t get ahead of yourself, because they’re not reuniting, they just really care about each other. BORING.
From 104.3′s Valentine in the Morning (via US Weekly):
“The truth is — well, I don’t really love talking about this stuff. But the thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true,” the 37-year-old said. “We are very close, we are not together. But, we’re…you know…that’s the truth… and uh, that’s it.”
“You know, there’s a lot of love,” he continued. “So there’s nothing — there’s no scandal I’m afraid. I wish i could give you scandal.”
Chris has always come off as a really decent guy, so I’m not surprised that he’s handled this entire thing in such a quiet and dignified way. It’s also really great for their kids that this whole thing has gone so smoothly. The last thing kids need is messy ass parents – especially famous ones – ruining their lives with unnecessary drama.

Kate Upton is generally seen as pretty sexy to most of the population, and she’s made an absolute fortune on being one of our first “curvy” supermodels. She’s doing pretty well for herself, but apparently that wasn’t always the case, and before she grew tits and an ass – and that hourglass figure – she was praying to a higher power for it to be so.
From Elle UK:
‘When I first started modelling, I was a normal catalogue model,’ Kate explains in the accompanying interview, speaking about her stratospheric rise to fame – with that body.
‘Then, I became a woman, and I was really excited about becoming a woman. Because I’m from Florida, it’s all about being in bathing suits. It’s a different view of beauty there. You are ugly if you don’t have a curvy body. And I didn’t have one, and then I got one, and thought, “Yessss!”
‘And then people say: “Oh, wow, you’re healthy.”
‘And you’re like, “Wait – what? I’ve been begging for this body my whole life!”’
Well, good for her. I mean, let’s be honest: any of the criticism about Kate Upton being “fat” are absolute bullshit. The girl is in no way overweight, so when I say it’s great that she’s got self-confidence, I feel sorta dumb because why should she feel otherwise? She’s gorgeous. Get yours, girl.
Then again, I don’t like that she equates curves with “becoming a woman” – there are lots of ways to be a woman, so I think that’s a bit wrong, but I don’t think she meant anything by it, so good for her, I guess. I think pretty much everyone else likes looking at her in a bathing suit too, eh?

Earlier this month, Scott Disick ended up in the hospital AGAIN with alcohol poisoning. He’s “totally fine”, of course, but considering Kourtney Kardashian is sitting at home growing his third child while he’s out partying, he’s decided to try and tone it down a little – at least until she pops the kid out.
From US Weekly:
“He stopped drinking cold turkey — and promised he won’t drink again until after Kourtney gives birth,” the source tells Us. “Scott knew he had hit rock bottom.”
The scary incident became a wake-up call for the 31-year-old, who is expecting baby No. 3 with Kardashian, 35, in December. The longtime couple are already parents to son Mason, 4, and daughter Penelope, 2.
“[Kourtney] told him that was the last straw,” according to the insider.
Uh, how many last straws has this woman had? And how many times has Scott hit rock bottom? Again, I know addiction is a disease and it’s not as easy as just stopping, but if being faced with losing everything that apparently matters the most to you isn’t enough for you to get serious help and to make a concerted effort to stay on the straight and narrow by, I dunno, not going out drinking at clubs, then fuck that. Kourtney needs to cut the cord – it’s clear alcohol matters to him more than his family.

If there’s one thing Taylor Swift knows all about, it’s love. She might not be very good at it, but she’s had her share of relationships, some more successful than others, and she wants to share the wisdom she’s gained with her adoring fans. That’s why when one girl took to Instagram to express her longing for the boy across the street, TaySwift dropped some serious knowledge on her ass and told her just what to do.
Here’s what Instagram user sherbetswift wrote:
There’s a guy Taylor, a guy who’s sweet and charming and makes me laugh. A guy who said sorry for eating in front of me after finding out I had to skip breakfast. A guy who grew up across the street from me. A guy who plays guitar like me. A guy who was my first best friend. A guy who I met when I was seven and he was nine. A guy who this one time, when we were younger, said that I was ‘like’ his girlfriend because I was a girl and his friend. I wish. A guy who I have the biggest crush in the whole wide world on, and he’ll never like me back. (And he has a girlfriend who he adores and she’s pretty and has an amazing figure and is actually nice to me). A guy who will never like me back. @taylorswift can you give me some advice maybe. I love you. Hannah ??
And here’s our girl Taylor’s response:
Hannah. Eyes, eyes, eyes. Woah. You have the prettiest, widest, most child like eyes. (Composes herself) Okay. About this guy. I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.
I mean, it’s all very cheesy, but you know how everything seemed like the end of the world when you were a teenager, and when you had a crush on someone who didn’t like you back, it was pretty much the worst thing ever, so I feel bad for the kid. Also, it was really, really nice for TSwift to step up and actually respond to this girl. As a celebrity who probably gets a million questions/tags a day, it’s probably not easy to get to everyone, and I think it’s really sweet that she took the time out.
