Right up front, this isn’t one of those “Mike’s mad somebody made a snotty remark about Marvel” thing. Quite the opposite. In a new cover interview for GQ, that’s fascinating as hell, Christian Bale was his normal blunt and self-deprecating self, and that held true when it came time to talk about his recent role in Thor: Love and Thunder. Despite starring in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, making an MCU movie is an entirely different beast and very different from Bale’s roles as of late. Long story short, he was not a huge fan of the green screen process, which he mostly chalked up to his own shortcomings. Basically, it was just the right touch of cantankerousness. (GQ)

Full Disclosure: I’m a dumbass. A top-grade moron. So as much as I believe Angelina Jolie’s allegations about Brad Pitt, I’ve had this nagging thought about why they’re coming up in a court battle over the sale of a winery instead of, say, a custody hearing. Fortunately, Lainey broke down the timeline, and Pitt only has himself to blame for this mess. (Lainey Gossip)
