It’s only Monday and the celeb gossip is already in full swing: Colin Farrell is headed to HBO, Emma Watson makes a case for feminism, and Tom Hardy is off the market. Read on for all that and more in today’s First Dibs.
We appreciate Tom Hardy as an actor. No really, it’s about his craft. We’re so excited to see his new movie, The Drop, a crime thriller co-starring James Gandolfini in his final role (his reviews have been ecstatic). Hardy’s range is crazy — he nails every role, whether he’s playing Queen Elizabeth’s dandy lover in BBC’s The Virgin Queen or the evil super-villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. We appreciate his talent and all, but honestly? He’s just hot.
Who were this week’s fashion winners–and losers? Is Tom Hardy married? Is Dane DeHaan finally allowed to talk about the Green Goblin?
Celebrities are just like us. Right? They’re actual living, breathing humans with wants and needs and terrible ex-boyfriends and acne and mortgages. They’re people. And yet, not really. Somehow, stars make everything they do — even the mundane, ordinary things — look special. Aspirational. Even glamorous! The simple act of walking out of yoga class or shopping with friends can look like a still from a Annie Leibowitz photo shoot (want a true rock star moment? Catch Rihanna on a Starbucks run).
It’s unfair, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Check out our top ten cases of celebs attempting — and failing — at being normal.

Celebrity doppelgangers are nothing new. Everyone knows that Zooey Deschanel is the hipster version of Katy Perry who is the pop tart version of Emily Blunt. But there is a whole different crop of doppelgangers: celebs who look like the young version of iconic actors. That’s to say, Brad Pitt looks a lot like Robert Redford when he was younger. Check out 15 stars who remind us of those who came before them.
We can’t take these photos of Tom Hardy giving a big ol’ smooch to an adorable puppy. In fact, if you have a heart condition, you should probably look away now.
We believe this story as far as we can metaphorically throw it, but as it involves our personal favorite Christian Grey candidate and amateur tattoo artist/rapper Tom Hardy, we also kind of love repeating it. According to Radar Online, Hardy is not getting along with his Mad Max: Fury Road co-star Charlize Theron because he insists on staying in character when cameras aren’t rolling. “Professionally, they are doing a wonderful job, but in-between takes Tom likes to stay in character and is constantly talking to himself and mumbling things,” Radar’s source says of Hardy, playing the titular role made famous by Mel Gibson. “Charlize has tried to talk to him during breaks in filming but he shuts himself off from the rest of the cast.”
