I think I’ve always assumed that Ralph Fiennes is “posh” in British terms, but I guess he would consider his childhood to be more artsy/literary/intellectual than “posh” per se (although he is related to the Prince of Wales, so there). I get the feeling that he grew up in a comfortably upper-middle-class family with enough “old money” to go around, and he attended some of the finer independent and private schools in Ireland and the UK (only in Britain, they call private schools “public schools”). Still, don’t even talk to Ralph about Britain’s class system. Like those other posh boysMore >
Lupita Nyong’o’s Instagram continues to amaze. I need to start checking it every day. Lupita does some great selfies – almost always with other people. And now she’s just trolling us with this Jared Leto thing! She posted a photo of herself and Jared at the Paris MiuMiu show last week. They were making cute faces and they do look nice together.

Theory #2: She’s into him and he sees her as a lovely trophyMore >
Some people hated Ellen DeGeneres’ social media thing at the Oscars. She took a bunch of selfies, but the big one, the star-studded one with all of the celebrities, was a huge explosion on Twitter.

But what if the selfies are made of lies?! What if this was all just someMore >
This was Angelina Jolie’s big Oscars comeback after The Leg. And she delivered. The Leg of Doom did not make an appearance at all. The Leg did not even peek out on the red carpet. The Leg was demure. The Leg was sandwiched in between Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch during the Oscars. The Leg got to present with living legend Sidney Poitier (and The Leg had to support Mr. Poitier, because he seemed very frail). The Leg got to announce one of the biggest winners of the evening, Best Director. The Leg has been vindicated!
At the end of the day, Angelina Jolie did not go with SaintMore >
