Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! Don’t drink too much green beer.
This is a very good and quite interesting interview, at THR: Ben Affleck on ‘Air,’ New CEO Gig and Those Memes: “I Am Who I Am”. I laughed at this: “Yesterday there was a news cycle devoted to your parallel parking. Dude, you know how many people can get in that spot? That was world-class Boston finesse. Granted, I did decide maybe I’m not going to bump these people anymore because it’s the Pacific Palisades and they may view bumping the bumper differently than we did back home, but it was so fucking snug. I’ve never gotten a spot that good. It was not parking assist either.” You kinda forget Ben Affleck is smart.
Ryan Reynolds is having a VERY good year, financially-speaking. As Lainey says, “Ryan Reynolds is very good at business. ” He also might be buying the Ottawa Senators????

Finally, it’s been a fun and exciting week for subscribers over at Drinks With Broads! Everyone got our post-Oscars round-up, and paid subscribers read our take on Law Roach’s retirement (among other things, including Nancy Meyers, Mean Girls Inception, Aaron Rodgers and his ridic darkness retreat that wasn’t, and the new True Lies).
