Here's what's happening out there:
• The other day on Instagram, Ireland Basinger-Baldwin shared a cheeky snapshot from a recent boudoir photoshoot (above), which she humorously captioned, "just my morning routine." But then again, is it humorous? We don't exactly know what Ireland does all day, so we can't say for certiain this isn't how she spends her mornings.
• In a new documentary celebrating the Queen's 90th birthday, Kate Middleton revealed that she once gave Elizabeth a batch of homemade chutney for Christmas. Middleton says Elizabeth also shared her chutney at the table, which she took as a sign of good will despite the Queen being notorious for not wanting to share snacks.
• We don't claim to make a great chutney like Kate does, but we can cook a 40 oz. porterhouse steak. Watch the video below for a quick tutorial from Chef Keith Geter of NYC's 212 Steakhouse (or read ), then hoard it all to yourself like Queen Elizabeth hoards the good food:
• According to the results of a new poll, many residents of the U.K. seem to feel that Jennifer Lawrence would make a great politician if she should ever decide to run for office. Unfortunately, we're still waiting for a follow-up survey to determine which politician would fare best in a large, murderous "Hunger Games"-type arena.
• Dolly Parton revealed on Tuesday that she and pop singer Katy Perry will be performing a duet at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards. In doing so, Parton has pretty much guaranteed a night of powerful music, powerful vocal performances, and powerfully supportive undergarments.
• 25-year-old actor Lucas Till has been cast as the lead in CBS's upcoming reboot of "MacGyver." As a veteran of the "X-Men" franchise, Till certainly seems like a fine choice for the role, but only time will tell if he'll earn the acceptance of Patty and Selma Bouvier, our nation's harshest "MacGyver" critics:
• Burt Reynolds recently told The Daily Beast that while he likes Donald Trump, he feels that Jon Voight would be a better president and "the answer to our problems." Reynolds quickly added that Voight's daughter Angelina Jolie would also make a good president, presumably because he just remembered that Jolie casts and directs her own movies.
• After his ex-fiance and his ex-wife threw shade at it for being too colorful and "awful," Ben Affleck revealed to Extra that the large phoenix tattoo on his back is just a "fake for a movie." He didn't reveal which movie specifically, so we can only assume it's a "Dragon Tattoo" sequel called "The Guy With the Really Awful Phoenix Tattoo."
