  • Susan Sarandon was interviewed this weekend at the Hamptons Film Festival and referred to the Pope as a “Nazi.” (Pope Benedict XVI, a German, did have connections to Hitler Youth as a child — as did many Germans.)

  • Rooney Mara’s cover story in Vogue reveals an uncomfortable dinner with the actress and the “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” director David Fincher where he jokes to her that she “can have a lettuce and a grape, a raisin if you must.” The reporter notes that Rooney ordered fish, but barely ate it and chatted with him about how she had to look like “a child” for the Lisbeth Salander role. Maybe Rooney Mara just wasn’t hungry that day. Nevertheless, it’s a disconcerting exchange to read. [Vogue]
