Melissa McCarthy and our nasty, tedious habit of confusing a woman's worth with her weight

What can’t the great Melissa McCarthy do? The 43-year-old actress—whose style of go-for-broke physical comedy is at once wild and grounded, brash and vulnerable—opens movies. She gets awards love. She stars in her own material: the road-trip comedy Tammy (in theaters July 2), which she co-wrote with her husband, first-time director Ben Falcone. She can do everything…except escape stupid.

'Supernatural': Sam and Dean's top 10 deaths

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop pop-up store: A hunt for the cheapest product inside

At Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle blog-inspired pop-up shop currently open in Los Angeles’ Brentwood Country Mart, you can buy a custom (for Goop, not for you) $620 knit heather-grey Stella McCartney jumpsuit, $650 vintage “found” serving spoons, a set of four cocktail napkins for $125 (with optional monogram), a $2,350 vintage Christian Dior Backgammon set, and a book called Within: A Spiritual Awakening to Love & Weight Loss.

The jeans are skinny, the tops are billowy, the fabrics are naaaahtural, and the price tags are hidden. One of those “if you have to look, you can’t afford it” things, no doubt. There was a pile of unassuming beaded bracelets on the desk in the front of the store, pointedly outside the artfully displayed glass class holding the more precious jewels. They looked like the kind of things you might find in a Bangkok street market. At Goop? They ranged in price from “5 to 7….hundred dollars,” according to the delicate sales girl.

Is it silly? Yes. Tasteful? Painfully so. Pretty? If beige tones are your thing, probably. Excessive? For most tax brackets, uh, yes.

But should we be aghast that it exists? Please. READ FULL STORY

Met Gala's six most polarizing dresses -- POLL

An unscientific sampling of Twitter comments has led EW’s Fashion Elves to conclude that the following dresses from the Fash-indig known as the Met Gala have caused a divide among the masses. And if these differences of opinion are not resolved, we’re pretty sure lives will be lost, families will be split up, and the country will crumble. Well, all that OR life will go on as normal. But why risk it?

James Franco didn't have sex with Lindsay Lohan, says James Franco

And now for a story in which there are no winners.

When James Franco went on Howard Stern’s radio show Wednesday, Stern asked him whether he ever had sex with Lindsay Lohan. (After all, Franco’s name did appear on Lohan’s alleged “sex list.”) First of all: Gross. To everything about this. But! According to Franco, who sounded pretty upset to even discuss this, the two made out but never actually slept together.

Did the conversation end there? It most certainly did not. “I don’t know what to say,” Franco said. “We were at this hotel during a very dark period of her history. It seemed pretty damn clear that she liked me. …I’d come home late to the hotel and she’d come find me. I knew which room she was in and I’d see through the window like, ‘Oh there’s another party over at Lindsay’s,’ …and she would come out to the pool area and find me. It’s in the poem: she even broke into my room one time because she was so at home there, I guess they just gave her the key. And so 3 in the morning, I was sleeping on the couch, and I open my eyes, and there’s Lindsay in my room at 3 am. And it’s like, okay, what do I do now. [laughs]…I tell about this in the poem. It sounds so nerdy…. I read her a story….I will swear on my mother’s life I didn’t have sex with her.” READ FULL STORY

Are you off the Frozen train? It’s okay if you are. Most people seem to be, in fact, except…they’re not. The soundtrack for the wildly popular November movie just hit its biggest sales week yet, which means that, hard as we try, we haven’t escaped the winter just yet.

There’s still plenty of hilarious pop culture to be mined from the biggest event to happen to Disney animated movies since that thing with Bambi’s mom. Don’t worry—you’ll find no “Let It Go” covers here. But if you think you’ve seen everything to do with Frozen, I submit to you something completely different: READ FULL STORY

Yeah, Kate Mulgrew doesn't really think the sun revolves around the Earth

(Wait, what?)

So here’s the situation: On Monday, word broke that Kate Mulgrew — best known these days for playing Red on Orange Is the New Black – is the narrator of an upcoming documentary called The Principle. Spoiler alert: The principle is that contrary to Copernicus and, you know, centuries of documented science, the sun revolves around the Earth.

This is notable for several reasons, including but not limited to these:
