Armie Hammer has checked into an in-patient facility for drug, alcohol, and sex issues, according to multiple reports.

The actor, known for his roles in films such as Call Me By Your Name, was spotted leaving the Caymans on May 29; sources confirmed that Hammer was headed to a Florida facility.

"Everyone looks at Armie thinking that he's had some sort of privileged life — and that must mean there were no problems in his youth and everything was peachy keen," Hammer's close friend told Vanity Fair. "But that's not necessarily the way things go. Just because you come from an upbringing where financial resources are plentiful doesn't mean life isn't without problems."

Back in March, Hammer was accused of rape by a 24-year-old woman. At the beginning of the year, disturbing screenshots of messages allegedly sent by Hammer began circulating around the Internet. Hammer denied all accusations.

So, You Want to Get into Radiohead?

The alt-rock legends' fifth album Amnesiac turns 20 years old today.

When it comes to a band as versed as Radiohead — whose fifth album Amnesiac turns 20 years old today — it's nearly impossible to imagine the sheer quantity of all their recorded material.

Much to the appeal of diehards, the British alt-rock legends have made their intimidatingly expansive history a little easier to parse. In January 2020, they launched the Radiohead Public Library, an infinite-scroll database filled with virtually every TV performance, newly-reissued merchandise, iconic live shows, B-sides, music videos, and plenty more. It's all neatly sorted by studio album, making it easy for fans to fully dive into their favorite era. But, for those not in the loop, the Radiohead Public Library might make getting into the band even more daunting.

You might be at work right now, but don't be fooled — today is a national holiday.

June 3, 2021 marks the 40th birthday of McLovin: the faux persona made famous by the 2007 teen comedy Superbad.

The anniversary came to our attention thanks to the film's co-creator and co-star, Seth Rogen, who shared a photo of the iconic fake ID to Twitter. "Happy 40th birthday McLovin," Rogen wrote, with the addendum: "We wrote this joke when we were 14 years old." Happy birthday to our favorite 25-year-old Hawaiian organ donor.
