“I’ve had a massive crush on her for years.”
Every celeb knows you can't tell Ellen DeGeneres anything because she'll most definitely use it to put you in a super awkward situation. Enter James Marsden, who appeared on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show the same day as his celebrity crush, Helen Mirren.
The actor admitted he had been too shy to approach Mirren backstage before the show started and previously when they were on the same flight. “I was on a flight with her once to Rome, and when I got off the flight, I followed her,” he told Ellen earlier. “And in a very voyeuristic, creepy way, I took a photo of her while she was walking away.” (See below.)

Cue Ellen's invitation to Helen to come on stage.
But the best part came when the Dame brought him to his knees; she cupped his face and told him “you’re so handsome” right before she walked off stage.

Get into the (sartorial) team spirit.
Canadian fashion label Frank + Oak is always up to something, and tomorrow the Montreal-based brand will drop a 9-piece Raptors collection in collaboration with the NBA. The pieces that make up the line are directional, minimal and best of all—unisex. The pieces include a crisp Oxford shirt patterned with a subtle team logo, a heather grey waffle knit mock-neck and a leather backpack. The coolest piece might be the two-tone pop-over shirt. The Oxford's mock-neck collar and mix of materials offer a completely new take on fan gear. Even fair-weather fans (hey, no judgement) will be tempted by this sleek collab.
The collection will launch tomorrow online and at Frank + Oak's Queen West and CF Sherway Gardens outposts as well as the Real Sports Apparel shop at the Air Canada Center. The brand is set to release merch for 5 more NBA teams in 2017. Until then, go Raptors, go!
3-Pointer print Oxford shirt ($75)
Drop-shoulder mock neck ($75)
Toronto backpack ($395)
Extended body mock-neck Oxford pop-over ($85)

Hold onto your Grammys, John.
Here's more proof that Ryan Gosling is pretty much a perfect human. His La La Land co-star John Legend revealed on Good Morning America that Gosling learned how to play the piano for his role in the musical so fast it kinda had the Grammy winner sweating.
"I was kind of jealous about how fast he learned to be awesome at piano,” said multi-award-winning musician John. “I’ve been playing since I was four. It's not fair.” (Watch below.)
All jokes aside, John praised Ryan’s work ethic, and said that he felt “lucky” to be part of the film.
Also, if you missed the cuteness that is John and Chrissy playing a game of charades with Jimmy Fallon and Chelsea Handler on The Tonight Show, catch it here.

And the award for sweetest husband goes to....
Jennifer Aniston had to face Thanksgiving dinner without hubby Justin Theroux this year...or so she thought.
On her recent visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Aniston explained that Theroux had a completely booked filming schedule in Germany so he wasn't going to make it home for the U.S. holiday. Even her friends were disappointed that he wasn't going to be there.
But just after the salad course, Aniston got a holiday surprise when Justin Theroux showed up – and brought a turkey.
