Ocean’s 8 Is Too Easy, Too Perfect, and Too Hard to Root For

When Sandra Bullock’s character, Debbie Ocean, gets out of prison in the new Ocean’s 8 movie, her hair looks great. Granted, once released on parole and out in the real world, Debbie (sister to Danny, of the eponymous Ocean’s Eleven) wears her hair pin-straight—but when she’s pleading with parole officers for a chance…

Cate Blanchett Is So Good at Drag That I Thought This Was Cate Blanchett Drag

Several minutes ago, a friend sent me a link to the video above along with the question, “HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BOBBY?” I had not seen it, nor did I know what it was before clicking. The video’s title, “Cate’s performance at The Stonewall 2/20/17,” didn’t help either. Cate who? At The Stonewall Inn? Is she a drag queen?…

A Man Has Joined the Cast of Ocean's Eight, But at Least He's the Villain

When the all-female reboot of the Ocean’s franchise was announced earlier this year, I had high hopes. There could be a strong, powerful woman as Danny Ocean’s sister who recruits only women! A female screenwriter! A female director! Feminine idioms and phrases (i.e. “lady luck,” “a mother of a con”) whenever…

Everything We Learned From These Photos of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett Filming Ocean's 8

We have covered Ocean’s 8 (previously known as Ocean’s Ocho) pretty aggressively here at Jezebel, and who could blame us! The cast of the all-woman reboot, is led by Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (she’s rumored to play Danny Ocean’s sister) and Cate Blanchett, while Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson,…

Cate Blanchett's Most Underrated Performance Is In This Commercial For Australian Cookies

The folks at Flavorwire called it “a raw, merciless portrait of human hunger.” The Daily Mail called it “cringey.” But I call it foreshadowing. If I’d been a Sydney resident in the mid 90s and seen Cate Blanchett appear on my TV screen asking a 3,000-year-old Australian genie for a magical carton of Tim Tams, I’d have…

Sandra Bullock Is Starring In an All-Woman Ocean's 11, Cate Blanchett May Join, and I Need To Sit Down

Do you remember that scene in Love, Actually when Emma Thompson has a controlled breakdown in her bedroom after discovering that her husband (played by the late Alan Rickman) is cheating on her? She paces back and forth in front of her marriage bed, hyperventilating, unsure of what to do with herself or her heart—much…

Ain't Nothing But Ladies on the Cover of Vanity Fair's Annual Hollywood Issue

On last year’s cover of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood issue—that annual Annie Leibovitz photo in which the country’s hottest actors use each other as sexy, well-dressed furniture—20 percent of those photographed were people of color, 100 percent were under 50, 60 percent were men, and 33 percent of the men were Miles Teller…

Nicole Kidman Doesn't Regret Her Marriage to Tom Cruise 

In an interview with the Evening Standard, Nicole Kidman said that she doesn’t regret her marriage to Scientologist Tom Cruise. “I was a baby when I married Tom, but I don’t regret any of it,” Kidman told the newspaper. “But out of respect for Keith, I tend not to discuss any of that now …” she added. For a profile…
