Jimmy Kimmel put together another edition of Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets About Themselves and, like the others, it is hilarious.
The folks that take a beating this round are Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, Gerard Butler, Ty Burrell, Bob Newhart, Britney Spears, Geena Davis, Chris Pratt, Chloe Grace Moretz, Scott Foley…
I. Love. These.

Very sad news today…
Legendary film and theater director, writer and producer Mike Nichols has passed away. He was 83.
An Oscar winner for 1967′s seminal The Graduate, he also was nominated for such films as Working Girl, Silkwood and Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? For his stage work, he amassed 10 Tony Awards including as director for such plays as Barefoot In The Park, The Odd Couple, The Prisoner Of Second Avenue and Death Of A Salesman; and as producer of Annie and The Real Thing.
His TV credits include exec producing classic 1970s drama series Family and directing and exec producing HBO drama Angels In America.
Nichols was married to ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer.
The list of actors with whom Nichols worked on stage and screen is a who’s who of Hollywood, past and present. They include (in no particular order) Julie Christie, Lillian Gish, George C Scott, Richard Dreyfuss, Morgan Freeman, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Meryl Streep, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, Emma Thompson, John Travolta, Kathy Bates, Natalie Portman, Christopher Walken, John Goodman, Kevin Kline, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, Ron Silver, Anne Bancroft, Candice Bergen, Gene Hackman, Robert Redford, Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
He was a great director and I loved his HBO production of Angels in America.
He will be missed.

I'm really bummed to find out that Hot In Cleveland has been cancelled after 6 seasons…
It’s the end of an era at TV Land. The network has announced that Season 6 of its signature original comedy series Hot In Cleveland, now in production, will be its last.
Hot In Cleveland, TV Land’s first original scripted series, was a breakout hit for the network — debuting with 4.8 million viewers — and put it on the original programming map. It reached the 100-episode milestone and was sold into broadcast syndication as well as in 210 territories internationally, a rare feat for a cable sitcom.
I've watched this show from the beginning because I enjoy all of the actresses in the cast, plus they often had great stunt-casting of guest-stars, which was fun.
I hope that Betty White and Wendy Malick end up on a new show soon.
I'm definitely going to miss it.

An extended trailer for Avengers 2: Age of Ultron was released today...
It's looking good and James Spader's voice is perfectly suited for the bad guy.
I wonder if this is the first movie he's done with Robert Downey Jr. since they did Less Than Zero together almost 30 years ago (1987...dear God, how time flies!)

A new trailer for Into The Woods was released and this one even has some singing (something the previous version didn't have)...
With Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Tracy Ullman, Christine Baranski, and Emily Blunt...the cast is pretty well-rounded and it looks like the production values are good.
I'm looking forward to this fur shur.
The movie opens Christmas day.
