Jennifer Lawrence penned a letter for Lenny, an e-mail newsletter from Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner. In it she asks why has she gotten much less money than her male counterparts who appeared in the same movie with equal screen time. It’s a great funny self deprecating letter.

I know I know Halloween isn’t even over and people are talking about Christmas. Yet this is exciting news… Netflix will be showing “A Very Murray Christmas” which will show Bill Murray in an all-star musically-driven holiday special.

Set inside New York City’s iconic Carlyle hotel, “A Very Murray Christmas” opens with Murray preparing to host a live, international holiday broadcast. After a blizzard shuts down the production, he makes the best of the situation by singing and celebrating with friends, hotel employees and anyone else who drops by. Looks like lots of fun and it has been directed by Sofia Coppola. Count us in. We can watch it from Dec 4th!
