PopWatchers, we know you don’t need to know that Katherine Heigl has a horse named Jean Harlow (and another named Ronnie!)? But like us, you want to.
Here are a few more things we learned about Heigl from her cover story in January’s ELLE:
- Heigl is old-fashioned (“she demanded to know [husband Josh Kelley's] intentions” when they started dating), but she also picked out her own engagement ring (not all bling is created equal, ladies)
- She was briefly raised Mormon but is now lapsed
- Since kicking the cigs, she is emphatic about her electronic cigarette
- When she was a child, her mother threatened to send her to a convent in the Swiss Alps if she misbehaved
- She nearly quit acting after she lost a part on Alias to Melissa George

Here at PopWatch, we understand that some information is important and some isn’t. But we also believe that some unimportant information can be essential: For example, do you need to know that Jeremy Renner grew up with a pygmy goat named Sugar? No. But like us, you want to. It’s with that in mind that we launch a new recurring PopWatch category, Essential Info.
• He and his best friend, actor Kristoffer Winters, renovate homes, which Renner sometimes lives in while they’re under construction. Sometimes, the homes have no working electricity or indoor plumbing
• He was a professional makeup artist
• He was starstruck when he met… Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan
This week, we learned the law doesn’t discriminate. Fresh on the heels of the Hollywood hacker’s arrest, another cult personality dubbed “Seattle’s real-life superhero” has been cuffed. Phoenix Jones, né Benjamin Fodor, was hauled into prison this past Sunday, reports The Washington Post. Fodor appeared in court this morning to address assault charges from an incident in which he allegedly pepper sprayed people who were fighting outside a club. He appeared outside the court room to at last be unmasked after nearly a full year of speculation. READ FULL STORY »
Like many of us here in the EW offices, I’m completely and unashamedly hooked on Revenge. The ABC drama — starring Emily VanCamp as a young woman bent on avenging her father’s ruin — is full of fun twists, fancy rich people doing fun, fancy, rich people things, and, perhaps most importantly, displays the utter awesomeness that is Madeleine Stowe. But! There is a small nagging issue that has been driving me more and more crazy with every viewing: What is the deal with that dog, Sam? READ FULL STORY »
If you’re wondering why Google is featuring Gumby on its homepage today, look no further. Today would have been the 90th birthday of Gumby creator Art Clokey. The interactive stop motion homepage doodle features the best-known characters from Clokey’s creation, which has lived in pop culture for more than five decades. “Art Clokey was an innovator in the field of animation and also a compassionate, inspiring artist,” said Google doodler Sophia Foster-Dimino. “We were excited to work with the incredibly talented animator Anthony Scott to produce this doodle, and we hope that it brightens your day!”
Sorry, hydrangeas: Madonna’s just not that crazy for you. Just days after a video of the multi-hyphenate dismissing a bouquet of hydrangeas from a fan went viral, a rep has released a statement regarding the floral spurn, which occurred at the Venice Film Festival. (Madonna was at the fete premiering her film W.E.) Said the rep in a statement to CNN: “She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feeling of the hydrangeas of the world … No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers.”
A random thought occurred to me the other day while I was watching A League of Their Own for roughly the 737th time on cable (well, besides how Stilwell Angel might be the most evil movie child since Damien): Do kids still write letters to celebrities? In this age of Twitter and information overload (what would you even ask your favorite star when you already know everything about them?) the accessibility of talking to a celebrity — or even the desire to — must have changed somewhat.
