Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep do not look impressed, and with good reason: Caption Writing Person is away this week. Caption Writing Intern, though, is here to entertain you with photos of celebrities. Oh, cheer up, Tommy Lee, it’s not like we just forced you to watch Small Soldiers or anything.

Kirsten Dunst of Small Soldiers fame is incredulous that Caption Writing Intern would make a Small Soldiers reference in 2012. Jumanji would have been preferable.

Actor Jeremy Renner, from the upcoming film Elysium, poses for a portrait during Comic-Con, Friday, July 13, 2012, in San Diego. Wait, that’s actually Matt Damon. Get it? Because you’ve both starred in Bourne movies. Ha!

Wait, Jeremy, come back! Was the joke really that bad that you had to speed off on a Bourne Legacy-branded motorbike that was probably broken in by Matt Damon at the last Bourne premiere?

See, Rosemarie DeWitt found it funny. For your generous laughter, Rosemarie, Caption Writing Intern will refrain from making light of the premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green at El Capitan theatre in Hollywood, Aug. 6, 2012.

Cheryl Hines, on the other hand, couldn’t have left the premiere of The Odd Life of Timothy Green any quicker. Slow down, Cheryl, it’s not like we forced you to watch Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back.

Actress Nichelle Nichols, the original Uhura on Star Trek, and musician Will.i.am, right, of The Black Eyed Peas, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., on Aug. 5, 2012, hours before the Mars rover Curiosity is due to land on the surface of Mars. Neither of them were too impressed, as they were mistakenly led to believe there would be a 16th-anniversary screening of Space Jam.

Speaking of Space Jam, rapper Ludacris cheers before the start of the game between the U.S. and Argentina at their men's preliminary round Group A basketball match at the Basketball Arena during the London 2012 Olympic Games, Aug. 6, 2012. Around the fifth minute of the second quarter, the drug haze wore off and he quickly realized that Kevin Love was not, in fact, a taller, younger Bill Murray.

Cast member Colin Farrell and his sister Claudine pose at the premiere of Total Recall at the Grauman's Chinese theatre in Hollywood, Aug. 1, 2012. You can see he is clearly pointing to the emergency exits in case this celebrity photo gallery implodes on itself.
