Lea Michele's 'Cory' necklace will be seen on Glee (Finn Necklace)

We all saw Lea Michele's "CORY" necklace (and engagement ring) at the Teen Choice Awards recently.

And while out and about ever since....

But this just broke my heart... Lea Michele tweeted from the Glee set this 'Finn' necklace that her character will wear. I am so filled with emotion, I can't wait to see the Glee premiere and tribute episode....

Ben Affleck as Batman... what is the problem people?

Joss Whedon‏ @josswhedon
Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin -- just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe -- I'm in.
Who argues with Joss Whedon?
When I heard Ben Affleck was cast as the new Batman I thought... nice! I love Ben Affleck. I think he has the jaw, the acting skills, the tall, dark handsome, and the ability to nail it!
Then... I saw the internet... wow! Talk about backlash... I truly don't get it... who did you want as Batman?
I am pretty excited! I think they could have gone younger, maybe. But, honestly, I think Ben will be amazing!
Still the meme's are entertaining:

Natalie Dormer in V Magazine


Upon speaking to blue-eyed Briton Natalie Dormer, one instantly understands the constant chatter surrounding her. “It’s all great fun,” says the Game of Thrones actress of the skill that has landed her not only on the fantasy television series but also opposite the likes of Hollywood heartthrobs Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender. “It was a dream couple of days work…just a joy,” she says of her time filming Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, penned by Cormac McCarthy and out in October. Dormer is being coy. The trained stage actress is an intellectual—she sees her preparation of a Jacobean text for a possible performance with the Royal Shakespeare Company as a fun mind game. “Good for the ol’ brain cells,” she says. “I suppose I’m a bit of a geek that way. It’s lucky that I enjoy reading, because as an actor you have to do a fuck load of it, whether it be scripts or research.” To prepare for her audition for Ron Howard’s upcoming action biopic, Rush—about the Formula One driver and playboy James Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth—she researched Hunt’s wife, Suzy Miller, quite heavily. Though the role eventually went to Olivia Wilde, Howard issued a personal plea for Dormer to play a part in the film. “I approach each job as a challenge, and I’m always happy to be there, and sometimes you have these great experiences with people and you never know what is going to happen further down the line.” She recalls when she first came to America, to audition for director Alan Taylor. She didn’t get the part, but two months later she found herself in a casting room with Taylor and writer/creator David Benioff, reading for a new HBO show called Game of Thrones. “How fate twists and turns,” she says.

Let's not forget she is Cressida in Mockingjay too!

#hairforhazel Shailene chops her hair for #TFIOS

Shailene Woodley's shorter hair: Via twitter

Divergent star, Shailene Woodley, chopped her locks for an upcoming role in 'The Fault in our Stars'.

This is something near and dear to my heart. My daughter, who is currently ten years old. Has chopped and donated her hair twice already.

It started when she came with me one day to donate blood. She asked a lot of questions about why I did it and saw drawings on thank-you cards from sick kids and asked if she could help. I explained she was too young to donate blood, but that she could when she was older if she wanted.

A few months later, she asked about donating her hair. I don't know where she learned of this opportunity, but she wante

d to do it and so we went to the hair salon and chopped her hair. It grew pretty quickly and two years later, she donated it again, cutting it even shorter to ensure there was enough length to donate.

As a mother, I couldn't be more proud of her and I am excited at the publicity currently surrounding #hairforhazel

My daughter in 2010 and 2012 when she chopped her hair to donate. It's already grown to shoulder length again now.
