Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch Dream of a Sluttier Downton AbbeyS

While there is no denying the addictive brilliance of Downton Abbey I'd smother the Dowager Countess myself if it meant that Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch could find a place on the show. Interviewing Dratch for her new memoir "Girl Walks Into a Bar…: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle," Poehler takes several conversational left turns and ends up speaking about how great it would be to chuck it all in and go and live in Ireland where they would inevitably find themselves as sexy 1800s strumpets. "And having an affair with, like, Lord Worthington who lives upstairs," said Poehler. "In all those Upstairs Downstairs kind of shows, all those Downton Abbeys, you and I would for sure be downstairs." To which Dratch replied: "We should do a comedy version of Downton Abbey where we are the maids." How could that not be the hit of new season line-up? [The Daily Beast]


Liam Hemsworth's mouth might be saying "Thanks for making The Hunger Games the number one movie in the world," but his eyes are saying: "Oh, dear lord, I'm never going to be able to walk out of the house without being accosted by rabid fans ever again." [E!]

Unfazed by the Daily Mail's constant attack on her looks and lifestyle – including this rather savage timeline of terror posted right before her wedding – Kate Moss assured a journalist she spoke to back in January that while she doesn't take it personally she doesn't get their obsession with her aging process. "I don't know. 'Cause it's the Daily Mail?" she said. "They just get on everyone's tits, don't they?" Sidebar: The New Yorker piece on the Daily Mail's terrifying success makes for great, depressing reading. [New Yorker via The Cut]

Angelina Jolie says that her child army – along with all of those who can't let go of the fact that she's with someone who had a life before her – are besides themselves at the prospect of seeing their mom play the villain on the big screen in Maleficent. "I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy," she said. "It's not anti-princess, but it's the first time they're looking at this epic woman [in a different way]. I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn't mean she can't have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is." [US]

Though many women enjoy the wondrous process of carrying a child, a lot don't. Jessica Simpson has more reason than most to want that thing out of her, seeing as she's been pregnant for as long as our booze-addled collective memory takes us. "I had a great pregnancy. Eating and not having to worry too much about it has been fun. Taking a break from working out has definitely been fun," she said. "But I'm ready for it to be over. I'm ready to have my body back!"
