Fans of Ryan Gosling and the disgusting deliciousness of Egg McMuffins are being forced to make a moral Sophie's Choice now that the actor has joined a list of luminaries, including Zooey Deschanel and Alicia Silverstone, who are urging McDonalds to stop using battery hens to source their eggs and other animal products. Penning a letter with Mercy For Animals, good egg Ryan and the gang have asked CEO Jim Skinner to step in and take action beyond cutting ties with the one supplier at the centre of an upsetting investigation last month and are pushing him to make comprehensive changes across the board. So much for that second breakfast you were eyeing off. You too can make like Ryan by signing the petition here. [Change]

Sean Penn is a smug asshole so news of people cutting him down in public for whatever reason is welcomed, with one-time co-star Maria Conchita Alonso losing her shit at him at LAX over his controversial friendship with Hugo Chavez. "I was very calm. I said, ‘I would like to talk to you.' He said, ‘I have nothing to say to you … You have been saying a lot of things about me in the press.' I said, ‘How can you defend Chavez?'" she said. "I said, ‘You are a communist, Sean Penn.' He said, ‘You are a pig!' So I said, ‘And you are a communist asshole!'" And with that we've exhausted our "said" quota for the day. [Page Six]

Though most rational humans see fashion guru Kim Jong-Il's passing as something to be celebrated, it's a sad occasion for General Admiral Alladeen – aka Sacha Baron Cohen's character from upcoming film, The Dictator. "K-Jo was a great leader, good friend and average double's badminton partner. He died as he lived, in 3-inch lifts. An extraordinary man, he did so much to spread compassion, wisdom and uranium throughout the world," he wrote. "On behalf of myself, Ahmadinejad, Chavez and Newt Gingrich, we would like to welcome his son, Kim Jong Un, into the Axis of Evil." [E!]

Vanessa Bryant's step-father Stephen Laine has bravely stepped forward in support of cheating husbands everywhere, saying that it makes sense that the daughter he raised to adulthood would wait for the 10-year mark to divorce Kobe because she's a gold-digger. "Her mother taught her well to wait for the ten-year mark," he said. "In California ... it's considered a long term marriage and then she gets paid for life or until she remarries ... just like her mother is doing to me." Damn that witch Vanessa and her ability to make her husband's penis stray into other women, damn her to hell! [TMZ]

Sorry folks, nothing to see here: Kate Mara confessing there is zero competition between her and sister Rooney.

Angelina Jolie has joined roughly half of the adult population in the US by professing a desire to finally master the language they've been half-assing since high school. "I've been studying French on and off my whole life, and I figured, my kids can speak it, and it's embarrassing that I can't as well as they can," she said. "Now, I have to. I've kind of half tried everything. It's like deciding to write something or deciding to direct or make a score of a film. It has to become a priority." [Sky News]
