Chris Pratt is an ace French braider, does not know how to spell 'braid' -- PHOTO

Eh, you win some, you lose some.

The following photo pictures actress Anna Faris — or at least, the back of Anna Faris’ head — sporting a flawless, Elsa-esque French braid. And according to the caption — written by none other than Parks and Rec star Chris Pratt, also known as Faris’ husband — the complicated hairdo was his own handiwork. Which is maybe slightly less impressive than Pratt plaiting his own hair, but still plenty impressive all the same.

Not quite as impressive: The (clearly joking) hashtags that follow Pratt’s brag about his “glorious french braid.” A sampler: “#ManBraid #RealMenBraid #isItBrade? #SpellingQuestion.” Followed, naturally, by these: “#WhyIsItFrench??? #ICallItAFreedomBraid #GoUsa.”

And suddenly, we begin to understand why Andy Dwyer is the way he is. READ FULL STORY

'Game of Thrones': Jack Gleeson's picture-perfect reaction to the Purple Wedding -- PHOTO

In last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, King Joffrey Baratheon finally ended his reign of terror by ingesting poisoned wine during his royal wedding.

While most fans of the show couldn’t wait for the day Joffrey met his end, the horrific manner in which he died — by violently choking to death — was so disturbing, many viewers were almost conflicted about the young King’s passing…almost. The one person who didn’t find it all that disturbing was the actor who played Joffrey, Jack Gleeson, as illustrated by a photo on his Instagram. The image shows Gleeson rolling his eyes, pointing to Joffrey’s white, bloody-nosed corpse on the screen, with a smirk.

Perhaps he is mocking his character’s death or just thrilled to be retiring from acting now that his story arc is over. Check out the photo below: READ FULL STORY

Madonna wears 'Game of Thrones' outfit for Jewish holiday

If you’re a huge fan of 1980s pop music and have a soft spot for the Mother of Dragons, we have a photo for you.

Madonna dressed up as Game of Thrones heroine Daenerys Targaryen to celebrate the Jewish holiday Purim.

The 55-year-old entertainer posted the results on Instagram on Saturday (below) with the caption: “Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty.” Madonna, already no stranger to corsets, wore a platinum-blond wig and added toy dragons to each shoulder.

The annual festival of Purim commemorates “the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews.” Madonna was raised Roman Catholic, then converted to Judaism-based Kabbalah in the late 1990s. She dresses up and goes to the Kabbalah Center every year for the holiday. Methods of Purim celebration include exchanging gifts, donating to charity, celebrating with a meal and, yes, wearing costumes.

Given that Daenerys has been traveling to desert cities and freeing oppressed people on the HBO show, one could argue that the costume is more thematically on target than most. Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season on April 6.

Donald Glover explains those Instagrams: 'I definitely was just expressing myself'

Don’t worry, guys — Donald Glover’s going to make it after all.

Days after posting a series of angsty, ultra-personal notes on his Instagram page (Example: “I’m afraid people hate who I really am.”), the Community star has opened up to People about what possessed him to bare his soul online. “That night, we had a show, and then afterwards, I had this moment of feeling like, ‘What’s the point? Why am I even here?’” Glover explained. “I just wanted to write down my feelings. I definitely was just expressing myself.”

So Glover isn’t suffering from a bout of depression? Well, yes and no, he says: “If I’m depressed, everybody’s depressed. I don’t think those feelings are that different from what everybody’s feeling. Most people just don’t tell everybody.”

In the end, he added, Glover is “glad” that he got everything in those notes off his chest: “It felt like I had been holding on to something,” he explained. Clearly, he had been avoiding making this sort of confession for awhile — “I was just tired of telling people I was tired. It felt like every day someone would ask, ‘What’s wrong. Are you okay?’ And I would say, ‘I’m tired, I’m tired,’” said Glover. “I didn’t want to do that anymore. I guess sometimes not telling the truth is just as bad as telling a lie.”

So there you have it. While Glover declined to speak more about his upcoming exit from Community, at least we know he’s okay; it’s a shame, though, that People didn’t think to ask why he’s scared he’s going to turn into Tyrese. Maybe next time?

Donald Glover lays all his insecurities bare, talks leaving 'Community' on Instagram

Hoo boy. Community‘s Donald Glover is really going through something, you guys.

About 19 hours ago, the writer-actor-comedian-rapper — still best known for playing Troy Barnes on NBC’s meta-sitcom — began posting a series of angsty, introspective messages on Instagram. The notes, handwritten on a Marriott Residence Inn pad (tagline: ‘Ideas Worth Saving”), chronicle a host of Glover’s insecurities, some serious (“I’m afraid of the future”), some that seem to be tongue-in-cheek (“I’m afraid that this will feel pretentious”), and some about Tyrese (“I’m scared I’ll be Tyrese”).

Glover followed his catalog of fears with another series of notes that address his upcoming exit from Community – Glover will reportedly appear in just five of the show’s upcoming 13 episodes — as well as his frustration with his record label, Glassnote. Apparently, Glover is hoping to release his next Childish Gambino album in December — but according to him, Glassnote has rejected that idea “’cause it’s not a holiday record and I’m not a big artist.”

'Modern Family' meets 'Breaking Bad': Jesse Tyler Ferguson takes a Heisenberg tour of New Mexico -- PHOTOS

When Jesse Tyler Ferguson grew up in New Mexico, Heisenberg was just a German physicist, not a porkpie-hat-wearing teacher-turned-meth kingpin.

But the Modern Family star clearly supports the White family’s Albuquerque takeover: When he visited his home state over the weekend, Ferguson and husband Justin Mikita took a tour of all the locations made famous by Breaking Bad and posted pics online.

First stop: Walt’s house, though that doesn’t look like a green Aztek in the driveway …
