The Crown Claire Foy Matt Smith

-Well, this is bullshit. The Crown’s Claire Foy  was paid less than costar Matt Smith in the first two seasons. I get that he was the bigger name when the show first started, but surely they could have re-negotiated after season one when she was clearly the lead character (and the more compelling one). I stopped watching the show early, but everyone I know who hung on longer eventually dropped it because of “too much Philip.”

-Lynda Carter opened up about her own #MeToo stories, and one involved a camera man on the Wonder Woman set drilling a hole into her dressing room wall so he could spy on her. Jesus.

-An HBO exec says the network’s budget is being “raped” by Game of Thrones and Big Little Lies. She’s since apologized for her “poor choice of words.” Ya think?

-Speaking of HBO, Nicole Kidman is reteaming with David E. Kelley for another book adaptation.

-When asked about a Buffy revival, the Fox TV boss said “When Joss Whedon decides it’s time, we’ll do it.”  So, that’s a “never” then.

-Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik  have split after two years of dating. On the plus side, does this mean I don’t need to learn who either of those people are?!

-Paul Feig says his production company is officially adopting an inclusion rider for all their film and TV productions moving forward.

-Matt Damon and Ben Affleck‘s production company made a similar announcement, which everyone immediately side-eyed.

-Oprah, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling crashed A Wrinkle in Time screening in costume with James Corden.

-I have a bunch of X Files episodes piled up on my DVR, but Scully’s “are you kidding me?” at the end of this clip makes me want to watch all of them right now.

-I’m so glad that Love, Simon is getting such great reviews. I adored that book.

-This SXSW movie review is bizarre. Why does he keep calling the female characters “sluts”. How did this make it into print?!

-A new trailer dropped for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Crimes Of Grindelwald.  I want to be here for Jude Law as Dumbledore but ugh, Johnny Depp.
