'House of Cards' episodes 2 - 4 react: This Woman's Work

As always, this is SPOILER CENTRAL ZONE, so stop reading now if you haven’t watched the first four episodes of season 2. Many turned away from the premiere, which really felt more like a season finale, feeling as struck in the gut as hungry Zoe Barnes. Where could the season go after Frank had so violently declared his bottom?

Well, let’s take a break from Frank for a second. And from the shake-hands-stab-backs war over entitlements. And from that braying elephant of a man Tusk who suddenly is such a ubiquitous presence in the Oval Office. And most especially from Lucas and his flop sweat and tedious tumble down into the Deep Web. It was the women whose story lines ‒ for better or worse ‒ compelled me in this stretch of episodes.  READ FULL STORY

Best from backstage at the Golden Globes: Leo on Marty, Bono on Mandela, plus Jennifer Lawrence, more

The best way to interview a celebrity? After they’ve won an award. Backstage at the Golden Globes, the parade of celebs — including A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and even U2 — were more than happy to greet the press and answer any and all questions.

Read on for some of our favorite quotes from the free-for-all press room:

Leonardo DiCaprio (winner — Best Actor, Drama for The Wolf of Wall Street) on Martin Scorsese and getting obsessed with his Wolf role:
I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.

I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump. I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.

Bono (winner, with U2 for Best Song “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), on understanding Mandela: 
There’s a few firsts, but the most powerful was to be with the great man on Robbin Island and hearing his voice crack as he spoke about his experience spending so much time on Robbin Island. And few so stoic and so kind of dismissive of his own pain. The first moment in our entire relationship that I saw him just lose it was on Robbin Island, and I’m not sure if you know this, but Mr. Mandela from cutting rocks on Robbin Island of salt had lost the use of his tear ducts. So this great man through all this historical triumph, was unable to cry. And in 2004 he had an operation to fix his tear ducts. It just so struck us on that occasion. It was very emotional on Robbin Island. And to be on the island with for Edge and myself is something we’ll never forget.

Why Xavier Samuel is the best thing about 'Adore'

I don’t know if it was the sheer intrigue of watching two motherlovers actually you know each other’s mothers, or if it was simply the fact that I didn’t feel like getting up off the couch. Either way, I spent my Friday night watching Robin Wright and Naomi Watts play sort-of lesbians who end up getting involved with each other’s sons in Adore. And I wish I could say I regret the experience.

I’m not here to argue that Adore is a great film, because it’s not. I knew what I was going to get before I hit “play,” which is what allowed me to watch the film without judgment — or perhaps just with less judgment than most. But regardless, before I knew it, I had fallen into this troubling story, and I didn’t know why. There was something magnetic about the film that I couldn’t identify. All I knew was that I didn’t want it to end. Let me reiterate: I didn’t want this story about two best friends, each one having sex with the other’s son (whom they’d helped to raise), to end.

So at this point I’m thinking there’s something wrong with me, right?
