Audiences may never see Robin Williams’ final role
Those of us who were looking forward to the beloved actor’s role in the Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame) helmed Absolutely Anything may have to content ourselves with the already vast stable of work Williams has gifted to us. The film’s star Simon Pegg told The Telegraph, “I’m not sure Robin had completed doing his voice in the movie. He was doing the voice of my dog and I hope that he had completed it because it would be a real shame not to have him in it.” We’ll be crossing our fingers that the film is released as planned.

But turns out that’s not happening because he is with Jennifer Lawrence now. WTF?! They’ve supposedly been quietly dating since June, after she and Nicholas Hoult split, and now people are trying to make the smush name “Martin Lawrence” happen. *rolls eyes*
With reports that ex-husband Chris Martin is quietly romancing J-Law, it’s a little convenient that there’s also a story about Goop having a new man: Glee and American Horror Story producer Brad Falchuk. There is no way Princess P is letting the Coldplay frontman steal her thunder.
Bieber and Gomez, Round 49
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were acting all lovey-dovey for the entire weekend, calling each other boyfriend and girlfriend once again and Biebs reportedly doting on Gomez like it was Downton Abbey up in here. There’ll likely be a breakup story next week but for now, we’ll just roll our eyes with it.
NPH clears things up
Neil Patrick Harris dispelled rumours that he and his fiancé David Burtka are splitting up by writing a “suck on it” post on Instagram. “I couldn’t be more in love with my family,” the actor wrote on Friday, captioning a photo of Burtka and their three-year-old fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott. “Any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken.”
