Actress, writer, and stand-up comedienne Rebel Wilson moved to the States from Australia just a few years ago, but her turn as Kristin Wiig’s bizarre roommate in “Bridesmaids” left everybody wanting more. With the smash hit film as her inaugural American movie, Rebel has quickly accelerated to the top of everybody’s Stars To Watch list ― and for good reason.

Last night, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a screener of “We Need To Talk About Kevin,” the film that was the talk of Cannes, based on the book by Lionel Shriver. The book/movie is told from the perspective of a mother — played by Tilda Swinton — as she struggles to rebuild her life shortly after her teenage son, Kevin, kills a bunch of his fellows students and teachers in an orchestrated massacre. Kevin has always been a bad seed, exhibiting sociopathic behavior since he was in diapers and the film (and, I imagine, the book) puts a certain damper on any baby fever you might have. It’s the ultimate psychological horror story — are some people just born evil?

Move over, Scarlett! Dolce & Gabbana: The Makeup has selected Felicity Jones as the new face of their upcoming Kohl Collection, to debut the first day of the new year. The designers chose Jones to play the “aristocratic sauvage girl” that inspired the line, which is comprised of five new shades of kohl eyeliner and an eye palette — and who wears eyeliner these days better than the gorgeous Brit?

She’s currently starring on the silver screen in Like Crazy, which I haven’t seen because I think it would make me cry. Regardless, Felicity is most definitely having a huge moment right now, and why shouldn’t she? She’s young, British, beautiful, and on the verge of becoming the latest indie darling. Here’s 10 things you should know about this prospective It-girl.
