JULIANNA MARGULIES DENIES FEUD WITH ARCHIE PANJABI
Julianna Margulies denies that there is any bad blood between herself and former Good Wife co-star Archie Panjabi. She attended the New Yorker Festival over the weekend where she finally addressed the rumors that she and Archie had a lot of drama behind the scenes of their CBS show prior to Archie's exit last year.
Julianna said, "Right, I've heard about the feud. Who says that? It's totally gossip. I heard that question had been asked to Robert King. There's no story there, sorry...I actually had heard that rumor and I feel that it has been talked about and answered. I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn't there. There's no animosity on my part. It's a shame, because I wonder if it was two men, when one finds out that he fucked his best friend's wife, if it would get that same attention, you know what I mean?"
- The gossip heated up last May after the season six finale where it was revealed that Julianna and Archie's final scene together was filmed using split screen. Julianna defended the scene saying, "It was shot the way Robert King wanted to shoot it, and the story line, too. You also have to remember, there's difficulty...she was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do and I did it happily."
- Archie responded by tweeting a link to the article and writing, "@TheFallTV was not even in production at that time and I was in New York ready to film the scene!"

LENA DUNHAM CREDITS JUDD APATOW FOR HELPING HER THROUGH SEXUAL ASSAULT: Lena Dunham spoke at the Rape Foundation Annual Brunch over the weekend where she credited her Girls collaborator, Judd Apatow, for helping her after her sexual assault. She told the crowd, "It's an honor to be here to present this honor to my work brother/dad/son/husband/dad again, Judd Apatow. My love and admiration for this man is boundless not just because he's a creative dynamo or the funniest person I've ever met, but because he's a tireless advocate for women. That means never ever accepting misogyny, assault or abuse as the status quo in Hollywood or in the real world. We all know that Judd has advocated publicly for America to respect and believe survivors of rape. We know he refuses to follow the path to be silenced. When I decided to write about my experience with sexual assault, Judd was one of the first people that I shared the essay with. His notes were kind and considerate, and made the work infinitely stronger just as his support made me infinitely stronger when the story was met with backlash. I can safely say I would not have emerged from the darkness of that period without the constant check-ins, sweet jokes and unwavering loving presence of Judd, but he was more than a friend -- he was a consistent reminder to me of something his work has always represented, which is that it's never wrong to speak the truth. Thank you so much Judd. I love you." Lena's essay was part of her book, Not That Kind of Girl, which was released last year.
