It was somewhat unfortunate that all those media misinterpretations of comments made by Brad Pitt to Parade magazine about Jennifer Aniston hit the wire just a day before a September 16 announcement that the actor was the inaugural cover-story beneficiary of a new Entertainment Weekly feature called “The EW Interview.” However, FishbowlLA is pretty sure that in the long run, it is the latter conversation that will stand the test of time.
We got in touch with EW managing editor Jess Cagle via email to find out more about this intriguing new series. Although no one is yet set for a second installment, he says he hopes to share another before the year is out.
“A lot of celebrity profiles focus on a current project with a few personal details wedged in,” Cagle explains. “The EW Interview is really an in-depth discussion with a respected entertainer about his or her work–by a reporter who really knows their stuff. Along the way you get tremendous insight into the subject’s personality and life.”
You already know that Sara Vilkomerson left her post as the NY Observer‘s culture editor, which saw her writing its “Very Short List.” Now, an anonymous tipster has shared the next step in Vilkomerson’s career: She’s going to Entertainment Weekly to become a senior writer for the magazine’s movie department.
In a memo to staff about the move, executive editor Jeff Giles let them know they have until October 25th — her starting date — to learn just how to pronounce her name.
