Colin Farrell's Last Romantic Relationship Was With Whom?

By Cindy Davis | Pajiba Love | December 18, 2013 | Comments ()

This Saturday marks the winter solstice, my first child’s birth, and 100 years since New York World published the first crossword puzzle. I celebrate all three. (Neatorama)

Er, yes I do sometimes speak without thinking…What does your favorite children’s book series say about you? (HuffPo)

Gingerbeard! Holy hot princes…have a look at hairy Harry, standing alongside a strapping Swede:

The real-life royal and True Blood’s Viking prince banded together for charity. (The Daily Beast)

Would it surprise you to learn that Boardwalk Empire’s Michael Pitt is a horrible human being, because he is. (Uproxx)

Mmm…pickled human skin. Just one of the delicacies (did I watch too much Hannibal?) weird things you can see at Philadelphia’s Mütter Museum. (Mental Floss)

If you love Hannibal, you’ll be tickled by this promo for Showtime’s upcoming “psychosexual horror series,” Penny Dreadful. (Youtube)

I definitely watched too much Six Feet Under, and like Lauren Ambrose, still cry when I hear Sia’s Breathe. Here’s an oral history of the finale montage. Not.sobbing.again. (Vulture)

Well, as long as we’re already crying…here’s Apple’s new holiday commercial. At first I was going to use it as an excuse to lock up all the iPhones; then I watched the whole thing. Frakkin’ commies. (via The High Definite)

And if that didn’t make you feel feelings, surely this will: Eccleston was supposed to be John Hurt’s The Day of the Doctor character. *insert sobbing here* Don’t get me wrong, Hurt is beloved and he did a fine job—but essentially he was a stand-in for Nine..Nine, Nine for a lost god. (The Mary Sue)

Will Triple Nine Make John Hillcoat a household name? I hope so, but if not, he can borrow from any one of its stars: Cate Blanchett, Christoph Waltz, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Casey Affleck, Michael B. Jordan. (Film School Rejects)

Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake ride SNL again this weekend; Dustin’s got the adorable promos to prove it. (Warming Glow)

I’m looking forward to seeing The Wolf of Wall Street, and from the trailers, it just might fit the DiCaprio trifecta: bad accents, a cheap haircut and an untimely death. (Unreality)

Keith Richards hit the big 7-0 today; can you believe he used to look like this? (Buzzfeed)

Speaking of septuagenarians, either there’s something really wrong with him, or all the single ladies out there need to try a little harder; Colin Farrell confessed on Ellen his last romantic relationship—unconsummated, thank the gods—was with Elizabeth Taylor. “She was a spectacular, spectacular woman. I wanted to be [husband] number eight, but we ran out of road.” (Dlisted)

Maybe if things don’t work out with Justin, Colin can give Jennifer Aniston a go? “A source” says things are just fine and dandy after the couple had a little counseling. I believe translated into regular-people speak, that means: expect a breakup right after the holidays. (Celebitchy)

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) looks forward to a Timothy Dalton comeback.

    Honestly in the scales of 'dick bags in hollywood' I'd say the boardwalk empire dude seems pretty low on the list. No rape, no racisim, hush money given to the families of the dead, no underage sex etc. Just regular old being kinda a fuck stick.

  • AvaLehra

    I'd kiss you for the Violent Femmes reference, but I am still a crumpled mess over Eccelston saying nay to the 50th. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO GOOD! Gosh darnit.

  • e jerry powell

    Prince Harry and Alex!

  • emmalita

    Those are some moist lions.

  • Kris

    What does it say about me if I've got about four different favorite series on that children's book list?

  • PerpetualIntern

    I can't even TALK about the end of Six Feet Under without getting choked up, even years later.

  • Bert_McGurt

    As entertaining as those pictures of Keef are, I'm more surprised to find Buster Bluth made the cover of Circus magazine, apparently antsy for a juice party.

  • Now, Balboa Bay Window - that would make sense

  • Mrs. Julien

    Elizabeth Taylor had excellent taste right up to the end. Well done, my lady.

  • el_mediocre

    Victorian London? Eva Green? I'm in.

  • snrp

    90% of decaying Hollywood actors continue to waggle their sad, saggy junk at PYTs throughout their increasingly repulsive decrepitudes, so you know what? Good for Taylor and Farrell. WHITE DIAMONDS

  • BWeaves

    Of course Eccleston was supposed to be the Warrior Doctor in the 50th anniversary special. It makes perfect sense. However, what I would have liked even better than substituting John Hurt, is if they'd used Paul McGann as the Warrior Doctor and implied that he regenerated into Eccleston. It would have kept the numbering neat, and given McGann a real episode.

  • ZombieNurse

    I agree. McGann would have been fantastic in that role (no offense to Mr. Hurt, because he was also awesome) but I think McGann was given the short end of the stick many times since the reboot in 2005. If you've ever listened to the Big Finish audio stories, you'll know he made a great Doctor and just never got his chance to really take his proper place in the whole line up. I've always felt a bit sorry for him.

    Also, (and a little off topic) I have a theory that Steven Moffat would have completely rebooted the whole thing if he could have, all the way back to 7. He's spent almost the entirety of his show running time unpicking the stitches of what RTD did, and it bothers me because I liked the stories of 8-10. Maybe I'm imagining it, but it seems like he's completely ignored, or completely glossed over, a lot of things he should have mentioned/taken into account when 11 came on board. I'm not surprised he created a new Doctor out of whole cloth instead of using one already established.

  • Three_nineteen

    What things were ignored or glossed over?

  • Ozioma

    How about things like the overreaching arc of the Doctor's character under RTD's helm? The whole 'I killed my species and planet for the sake of the universe' that's been chasing him, weighing him down and colouring everything.

    So now when I see an episode of Nine or Ten and see him speaking about the choices he made and how he still regrets it, I'm gonna have to remember that Moffat basically went 'LOL JOKING NONE OF IT HAPPENED'. The 50th special basically erased four years of continuity in one fell swoop.

  • Three_nineteen

    That was addressed in the most Doctor Who way possible: it has been well established in Classic Who that when different versions of the Doctor get together, the earlier versions of the The Doctor do not remember it. So War Doctor, Nine, Ten, and Eleven (up to that point) still believe that they did kill their species and planet to save the universe. Even if that's not technically true, it doesn't negate all the character development that happens, because they believe it and act as if that's what happened. In fact, that character development is absolutely necessary because it got The Doctor to the point where he was able to reject the supposed inevitability of that decision and come up with an alternative.

    I know some people don't like the way Moffat addressed it, but he absolutely didn't ignore anything.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Moffat's a weirdo. He concedes that Nine wouldn't have made sense given that he's clearly a recent regeneration when the series started, but still would've done it? For some reason, because he couldn't see how he could take McGann to that place? That's a failure of imagination. It would've been pretty effective to take a character who's a well-established Doctor (like, if you read the books and stuff, I guess) like the others, and drag him down that hole. John Hurt was fantastic, of course, and I think overall the whole thing was a success, but I think they'd have gotten more mileage out of an Eight who's been getting consistently ground down with the violence and suffering for years (centuries? Decades, at least) finally reaching a breaking point rather than having a Doctor who is sort of specially designed for the exact thing he ends up doing. Moffat made a Doctor for The Moment instead of making it The Moment for a Doctor (i.e., his usual shtick-- why do character when you can do plot?).

  • dammitdamian

    If you'll notice in the Night of the Doctor short where McGann regenerates into John Hurt, the reflection is of a YOUNG John Hurt. So he's had years and years of being drug down that hole! So I didn't mind it that much and I rather enjoyed McGann's exit. Although I would have loved to have many more adventures with him as the Doctor.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Yes. A young John Hurt who McGann regenerated into for the specific purpose of being the Doctor who could do those things. That character development was achieved with a magic custom regeneration potion, not actual characterization. I'd much prefer a Doctor who started out relatively normal, standard issue (as they go, anyway) and got broken down into Hurt's kind of Doctor solely through the horrors of that war

  • BWeaves

    I did like the short, because they at least gave McGann something. I just wish they'd given him a lot more.
