Out chef Anita Lo was recently featured on Google Talk, where shared her endless culinary knowledge. (Well, technically, Lo’s knowledge would probably end at some point.)

 

Ok, it’s official, Sucker Punch‘s Jena Malone will play the ax-swinging tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Watch your back Katniss!

Tomorrow, Shay Mitchell will be in New York City’s Times Square doing a live photo shoot. The Pretty Little Liars star has teamed up with American Eagle for its “Live Your Life” campaign. The first 25 customers in line will get their picture taken with Mitchell. Everyone else will be able to meet Mitchell and wish they had gotten in line sooner.

Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara will guest star on an upcoming episode of Family Guy. Vergara will play the lead character Peter Griffin’s “fantasy love interest.”

The Jim Henson Company has severed its ties with Chick-Fil-A. On Friday the below statement was posted on the company’s Facebook page.

The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.

Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson star in the comedy Bachelorette. The film is directed by my college pal Leslye Headland and hits theaters on September 6.

 

The Kids Are All Right’s Annette Bening has a lot on her plate. Bening stars in Ginger and Rosawith Elle Fanning and Christina Hendricks, the romantic comedy Look of Love, with Robin Williams and Ed Harris, and as Catherine the Great in The Great. (Clever title.) When does this woman have time to sleep?!

Speaking of Bening, her son, Stephen, created a WeHappyTrans video which is garnering quite a lot of attention. Check out Stephen’s video below.

At this year’s Comic-Con, Jodie Foster dished about her new movie Elysium.
