For all those who love to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow (and you know who you are), here’s a little something that could maybe make you believe she kind of gets it. Paltrow visited ABC’s The Chew today, where her good friend Mario Batali is a co-host. Toward the end of the show, Batali and the other hosts (Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, Daphne Oz, and Michael Symon) peppered Paltrow with questions she had to answer during the one-minute Celebrity Egg Timer segment.

If you’ve been looking for a way to lick Josh Hutcherson, we just might have the solution. New York bakery Eleni’s, most recently responsible for their ingenious Oscar cookies, has given their detailed treatment to none other than the characters, creatures, and concepts of The Hunger Games, pictured above.
Their Capitol confections (which I can attest are not made from tesserae grain) include everything from tracker jackers you can eat without fear of delirium, a mockingjay pin (that I would proudly wear if it wouldn’t crumble on my shirt), a bow and arrow, a bunch of nightlock berries (eat at your own risk), the foreboding white rose, and for all you Team Gale fans, a mop-haired Liam Hemsworth.
While you won’t find these cookies included in your copy of this week’s Hunger Games issue, you can order the Down with the Capitol gift box (currently circulating EW’s office) for $75 from Eleni’s website. We’d love to see Seneca Crane take a bite out of that.

It was a great season. It felt different for all of us, partially because of the chefs and the locations and some of the challenges that were so special. It was very memorable for me. I’m excited that we have a winner but I’m also sad it had to end.
[The finale challenge is different from] restaurant wars because one chef is in charge, as opposed to a team that’s involved. This has nothing to do with any of the other contestants, this is one chef’s vision, personality, and culinary style. It really gets to showcase who they are as chefs. We [had a similar finale challenge] for season 8 All-Stars as well. We realized that it’s just a much more realistic challenge for chefs of this caliber. It used to be that they’d have to cook for 10 or 15 of us [in the finale, and] serve everyone at once banquet style. But that’s not what a chef does in a restaurant every day. They have to serve many, many people and every batch of food, every plate that goes out has to be the same and has to be consistent. This really mimicked a restaurant experience much more. As the chefs get better every season we really change the finale. READ FULL STORY

New York bakery Eleni’s has just announced this year’s lineup of Academy Awards-themed cookies, and they are almost too amazing to eat.
The iced sugar cookies, which are available in Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress assortments, depict miniature edible versions of some of this year’s most recognizable props, costumes, and faces – animal and human.
A few photos from the London after-party for the premiere of A Dangerous Method have been making the rounds on the Internet. And, based on the images, it appears Michael Fassbender very much enjoyed himself at the event. (I’m particularly fond of the one in which he’s tinkering around on a piano, but the waltz with co-star Viggo Mortensen is pretty amazing in its own right.) UK tabloid The Sun initially reported that the actor “was politely asked to leave ” and “was becoming a bit of a handful for the other guests.” (Insert “handful” joke here.) But according to GQ‘s Olivia Cole (GQ hosted the bash) via her Twitter, the drunk Fassbender tale (which claimed he ” lit a cigarette indoors and that was the point it had gone too far”) was “complete fiction” and that ” no one was asked to leave early.” Despite these photos, I tend to believe Cole here, as no one in their right mind would ask Michael Fassbender to leave early.

I love Pee-Wee Herman. I watched Pee-Wee’s Playhouse every Saturday morning growing up. My brother and I used to do impressions and joke about him all day long, so I was really excited to have him on the show. I have to say, he is a really great actor. The most amazing part about meeting Pee-Wee Herman was also meeting Paul Reubens. We get so used to this persona, this stage personality that he’s created, that we forget that that’s not Paul Reubens at all. He turns off [the persona] and opens a beer and sits down and wants to talk about music and food. [He] told us some really amazing stories about his life over the years and [about] how the character Pee-Wee Herman came about. We had so much fun with him. We were with him for two days and it was really exciting. He was really one of my favorite guest judges ever. He just brought so much joy and nostalgia and fun to the set. READ FULL STORY

The thing about the show is that it’s so real and so awesome that it’s really hard, especially as time goes on, to eliminate [contestants] because they’re all pouring out their heart and soul. I hate to see them go home because they have so much talent.
[These contestants] have really worked hard at getting where they are right now. Now that the [pool is] getting smaller, we were at six, now it’s five, it’s like right to the point of being on the fence, where you don’t want to see anyone go home, but somebody’s got to go home. READ FULL STORY
