Today in reports of Mad Men stars' IRL fucking, Vincent Kartheiser is reportedly dating Alexis Bledel after she guest starred as one of Pete Campbell's mistresses, if a a kissy flight from JFK to LAX is to be believed. Elisabeth Moss is dating cinematographer Adam Arkapaw, officially moving on after her messy divorce from Fred Armisen—who, rumor has it, left Moss for Abby Elliott. (If you missed the choice slam Moss delivered about her ex in March: "The greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.") Damnnnnn. [Oh No They Didn't, Daily Mail, HuffPo]

If you wanted even more proof that actress Carol Kane is magic (she played Alison Portchnik in Annie Hall), she had a 60th birthday party Sunday in Hell's Kitchen attended by Woody Harrelson. When the Hunger Games actor left, a homeless lady asked him for cash. He gave her $600 dollars. Eyewitnesses report that the homeless woman jumped to her feet and screamed joyfully "Woody! White men can jump!" That is not a punchline. That really happened. [NYDN]

John Mayer was sniffing around Jennifer Lawrence when they all went out to novelty restaurant Medieval Times (I'm serious), even though she's in a serious relationship with Nicholas Hoult.

[Lawrence] was like a freshman with a crush on the captain of the football team." Mayer and Lawrence also went out shopping in L.A. recently with Zooey Deschanel.

Major pet peeve alert: referring to actors by their character names, particularly when the show is long since off the air.

When Alexis Bledel first appeared on Mad Men this season and I was reading about the show, I genuinely believed the actress' name was "Rory Gilmore" since, everywhere, it was saying that "Rory Gilmore" was on Mad Men. I didn't know what a "Rory Gilmore" was, so I assumed, as one does, that it was her name. It wasn't until the name didn't come up as a person on IMDB that I started to piece it together.

According to Wikipedia, Gilmore Girls had a peak sized audience of 5.2 million or so 10 and 11 years ago and has been out of production since 2007. Can we please use real names to identify people who haven't been TV successful for more than 5 years (and arguably, based on the numbers, 10)? Not everyone watches every show on TV.

Note: This goes for even shows I do love, because fair is fair — no calling Idris Elba "Stringer" or noting that "Omar" was on Community.
