It’s official: Chris Hemsworth is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive 2014.

After much debate—and much discussion of Chris Pratt possibly taking the title—Jimmy Kimmel announced People‘s pick during Tuesday night’s show. And despite Hemsworth’s name being left out of some of the conversations prior to the reveal, it isn’t hard to see why he made the cut. Abs and accent aside, the man is Thor—not to mention the star of Michael Mann’s upcoming Blackhat. READ FULL STORY

Yesterday, words came out of Jaden and Willow Smith’s mouths in an interview with the New York Times‘ T Magazinewords that befuddled some people and enlightened others.

The good people at Time took it upon themselves to celebrate the siblings Smith by creating a Jaden and Willow Smith poetry generator, using words from the interview. Here’s a sampling of what comes up in one randomly-generated poem: “It doesn’t have to be like that/They’re shocked by this harsh world/Olympic-level things/A holographic reality/a higher consciousness.”

Sounds like something out of the mouths of (Smith) babes. Head on over to Time to see what kinds of higher consciousness you can achieve.

That time Jaden and Willow Smith were endearingly normal in a 2010 EW interview

Yes, Monday’s much-discussed New York Times’ T Magazine Q&A with Jaden and Willow Smith was touted as the siblings’ “first-ever joint interview.” But in 2010, EW spoke to the siblings Smith, who were named to that year’s Entertainers of the Year list in the wake of Jaden’s The Karate Kid remake and Willow’s “Whip My Hair.”

Back then, 12-year-old Jaden and 10-year-old Willow were starstruck by other celebrities and just on the cusp of their own respective stardoms. Here are a few nostalgic tidbits, in case you’d forgotten that Jaden and Willow were not always Prana energy-infused holograms spouting diatribes against school and driver’s ed.

Back in 2010…

Jaden Smith was excited to meet Lady Gaga.
When asked which was their most exciting celebrity encounter in 2010, Jaden didn’t spout aphorisms on how celebrities are chambers within the mind, and responded with this simple line: “I met Lady Gaga, and she was covered in, like, steak. I actually gave her a hug.”

Jaden hinted at his future as a teen philosopher.
Then-12-year-old Jaden said his favorite movie was Inception, Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending dreamscape drama, which might have clued into present-day Jaden’s obsession with thinking so hard.

“I’ve seen it, like, four times. I’m still trying to figure it out,” Smith said.

The fans were crazier than Jaden.
Jaden told the Times that he wanted to be “the craziest person of all time,” but there was once a point where his fans seemed to quantify that goal. When asked what the best and worse parts of fame was, Willow recounted the time that a bleeding fan approached Jaden.

WILLOW: Remember that girl who ran up to you with a bloody arm?
JADEN: Yeah. Oh my gosh. She was like, ”I fell and cut myself, but can I have your autograph?” I was like, ”Do you have a pen?”
WILLOW: She was like, ”Sign it with blood.”

Willow Smith got in trouble for eating stuff out of the container. (Celebrity kids—they’re just like us.)
Perhaps what emphasized the “kid-ness” of the interview was this admission by Willow: “I get in trouble for eating whipped cream right out of the container. Bad to the bone!” Sigh. Kids sure do get into existentialism real young these days.

'Mockingjay': Why the worst 'Hunger Games' book should make the best film

Mockingjay is the most polarizing novel in the Hunger Games saga. Although most agree that it’s Suzanne Collins’ weakest book, some defend it; others claim it’s actually the series’ best. However, all three camps agree that, in Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins takes things to extremes, tackling traitors, murder, war, and one of the most haunting, realistic portrayals of violence in YA literature.

That being said, Mockingjay is also a study of post-traumatic stress. After two books of children both killing and being killed, Collins uses Mockingjay to finally give her characters time to be damaged. That divide—one half of the book focuses on extreme emotion, while the other half focuses on extreme action—keeps Mockingjay from flowing as smoothly as the rest of the series. But it’s also why Mockingjay—Part 1, if done correctly, should make for the best film in the Hunger Games franchise thus far. READ FULL STORY
