You know what’s awesome? Movies with lots of awesome people it them. One of those upcoming movies is This Is The End, an apocalyptic summer comedy (best new genre, y/y?) starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Emma Watson, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson and more. And what’s even more awesome? Those people, plus more of our favorite
stoners Hollywood performers with excellent senses of humor, all up on the red carpet looking snazzy and hanging out together.
Oh, and Wilmer Valderrama, but I think that was an accident, IDK. More
It’s really simple. I swear. You just need to change your career stat. More
The Writers Guild Awards took place in Los Angeles this weekend and the red carpet was surprisingly comely–who’d have thought a bunch of schlubby creative types would turn it out much, much better than those hopeless Grammys attendees? …Well, reasonable people, we guess.
Anyway, famous ladies in dresses stopped by. Let’s see what they wore! More
Gwen Stefani is tired of hitting the gym. Maybe she should go grab a glass of champagne with Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham or any of the other ladies who are doing just fine without being a sample size. More
Last week, The New York Times ran an article called “Female Stars Step Off The Scale” about how women who are not Hollywood skinny are increasingly being allowed to play roles other than “the fat, funny best friend” in movies and TV shows. SOUND THE ALARMS! Some people think the women profiled in the article (mainly Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham) are not fat enough for it to constitute progress, while others think writers are still placing too much emphasis on fat women’s bodies plotwise, despite the wider range of roles that are now available to “overweight” women. (I’m including women who are overweight by Hollywood standards, as well as women who are actually fat here.) But what do the people who comment on New York Times articles think?
Well, as it turns out, many of them think that allowing non-skinny women to play human beings instead of walking stereotypes is contributing to the widespread idea that being obese is cool, sexy, and great for your health! Read on for some serious concern trolling, plus a few comments that give me faith in humanity. More
It’s not for the reasons you might think. More
Hey ladies — just in case you forgot: even if you fly over hurdles, jump through hoops and work your ass off for your career, if and when you finally succeed, you should really make sure to shut up about your accomplishments! More
Why is Mindy Kaling so awesome? More
How do I love Mindy Kaling? Let me count the ways. She’s funny, she’s accomplished, her TV show is awesome, and she can satirize fashion week with dead on wit in just 140 characters. She’s been producing a steady stream of hilarity on the subject which I really hope continues; here are some of her best one-liners. More
Mostly, I’m upset that Minday Kaling lied to me. Mindy Kaling really seems like the kind of person you can trust, I honestly thought she and I could be friends, but I guess she’s not. I guess she does not know anything. In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me which is a funny book, except for all the lying, she describes the relationship between Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, saying: More
The Today Show today to discuss her favorite books of the year alongside none other than former president Bill Clinton(!) Mindy’s picks included books about Gwyneth Paltrow and Alexander McQueen, while Clinton’s were a bunch of tl;dr tomes to show off how smart he is. More
Is there anything this kid can’t do? More
The book release party for Mindy Kaling’s new tome, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” looks like it was one of the most awesome parties of the year. More
If it’s good enough for Mindy, it’s good enough for me. More
