Angelina Jolie made a video about having chicken pox

You can watch a lot of strange and unexpected things on Youtube, but a video of Angelina Jolie apologizing for staying home sick thanks to chicken pox might be the strangest thing you’ll see this week. In the video, Jolie hardly seems to believe it herself—her second directorial effort, Unbroken, is a mere two weeks away from being released, which makes this sort of thing awfully inconvenient in addition to being mildly embarrassing.


Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Movie trailers need to stop slowing down songs


It’s “California Dreamin”… slowed down! It’s “Once Upon a Dream”… slowed down! It’s that peppy Pinocchio song… slowed down! It’s … getting rather annoying, to be honest. READ FULL STORY

Billy Crystal's touching tribute to Robin Williams: A script of his friend's first night in heaven

When the world suddenly lost Robin Williams in August at the age of 63, friends and fans of the comedian were heartbroken. So was Billy Crystal, his longtime pal and comic cohort. Here, Crystal bids farewell to his dear friend by imagining Williams doing stand-up for the most heavenly audience.

Bryan Singer, FKA Twigs, one unforgettable cat: 12 things we didn't talk about enough in 2014


As a populace, we already know what we talked about too much in 2014: Taylor Swift’s music industry takeover; Matthew McConaughey’s ascent from beefy rom-com star to prestige actor; the nude-photo theft that launched a million thinkpieces about consent, privacy, sexism, and celebrity; Ben Affleck’s junk.

But for every overhyped idea, there’s a corresponding underhyped one—a would-have-been national conversation that didn’t materialize, an important work that deserved more appreciation, or a would-be breakout star like Sam Smith or Lupita Nyong’o who never quite managed to yank the spotlight away from the real Sam Smith or Lupita Nyong’o. According to EW staffers, this year, we didn’t talk nearly enough about… READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: The thing you like (that everyone else hates)

Last week, we talked about the widely beloved pop culture things we secretly despise. This week, we’re tackling that question’s sunnier opposite: What’s the entertainment you love, even though everyone else gives it a bad rap?

Ashley Fetters, EW.com news editor: There are plenty of unpopular things I like but can understand others’ hatred for: Auto-Tune, black jelly beans, the “hella good hair” part of “Shake It Off,” televised tennis. But I truly don’t understand why some people hate the live-action 2000 version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Not only is it the perfect outlet for the over-the-top Jim Carrey schtick I find unpalatable in almost every other context, but it also successfully infuses the twinkly cinematic world of Whoville with the vaguely unsettling, deeply weird garishness present in the works of Dr. Seuss. It’s not an accident that when I saw Moulin Rouge for the first time, parts of it reminded me of The Grinch. Also, duh, I never get tired of the post office scene. READ FULL STORY

Angelina Jolie, Chris Pratt, more named 'People' magazine's most intriguing

A movie producer might have called Angelina Jolie a “spoiled brat” in a leaked email that surfaced Tuesday, but People has no such complaints with the actress: She tops the magazine’s annual list of 25 most intriguing people.
