-After a summer of rampant speculation about affairs and separations, Victoria and David Beckham are presenting a united front in the new issue of British Vogue. They dismiss the rumours (“People have been making things up about our relationship for 20 years, so David and I are pretty used to ignoring the nonsense and just carrying on as normal”) and discuss their family bond (“We both realise that we are stronger together than we are as individuals. Would either of us be in the position that we are in now had we not met and been together all those years ago? It’s all about the family unit. We are much stronger – the six of us – than we would be if we were individuals. We respect that family bond and that is key”).

Victoria and David were also photographed looking cozy this weekend on a yacht in the south of France.

Cate Blanchett talks #MeToo, Brexit and her hopes for her children’s future in her new Harper’s Bazaar UK cover story.

Mindy Kaling‘s tweets on Crazy Rich Asians this weekend were wonderful — though I really wish she’d learn how to thread them.

-Meanwhile, Crazy Rich Asians’ $28.3 million holiday weekend ranks as the best Labor Day showing in over a decade.

-I missed this bit about CRA’s final proposal scene and how it was re-written on the fly. “We had a ring designed already, and our mock-up looked so shitty that Michelle [Yeoh] was like, That cannot be the ring I wear. I’m like, I know, I know. I’m so embarrassed by it, but we don’t have the money. She’s like, I have a better ring than that. So Yeoh asked her assistant to get her box of jewelry and pulled out the ring that Nick eventually proposes with: an emerald and diamond one she bought as a gift to herself.”

-Wait, is Dave Bautista really out here spilling Avengers 4 spoilers because he’s angry about the James Gunn situation? Really tho?

-I think we all deserve to have one moment where Jeff Goldblum describes our personality. Listen to the way he describes Tessa Thompson.

-Whoa! David Cronenberg is in the early stages of developing a TV series.

Nicki Minaj‘s handling of her nip slip during a performance this weekend might be the smoothest recovery I’ve ever seen.

-Actors jumped to the defense of former Cosby star Geoffrey Owens, who was mocked for bagging groceries at Trader Joe’s. Owens then appeared on GMA to say “I’ve had a great life. I’ve had a great career. I’ve had a career that most actors would die for. So no one has to feel sorry for me. I’m doing fine!”

-I don’t know why I find this clip of Janet Jackson admitting she doesn’t know what Hot Cheetos are so endearing, but I do.

-Here are 20 Padma Lakshmi-approved comedians “who are actually funny” and “haven’t harassed women.”

-A bartender named Jade alleges that Cardi B twice set a group of people to attack her for supposedly sleeping with Offset, which Jade denies.

Viola Davis looks amazing on the cover of Variety’s TIFF issue.

Melissa McCarthy‘s new movie Can You Ever Forgive Me is a surprise film fest fave. Word of mouth is so good, I might pick up a screening at TIFF next week.

-TIFF pulled Elle Fanning‘s Galveston from its gala lineup when they realized the cast and director wasn’t planning on attending. Too bad. After what she wore to the film’s premiere I was curious about what she’d show up in.

-I’m way late to this, but I finally caught up on Succession and wow, that was a satisfying finale. Maybe my fave hour of television so far this year.

Dominic Cooper and Crazy Rich Asian’s Gemma Chan definitely seem to be a thing. They were photographed together last week, and then again this week in Spain.

-Here’s The Favourite trailer with Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and the AMAZING Olivia Colman.

Pete Davidson Gives Ariana Grande a Birthday Piggyback

Pete Davidson wished Ariana Grande a happy birthday on Instagram. It’s a very cute photo, but it reminded me of that old meme about how she is always being carried around.

-In her Instyle cover feature, Serena Williams says she’d “already be pregnant” with baby number two if she wasn’t working.

Tiffany Haddish says Drake once stood her up for a date, so he didn’t make her ‘dick pic book’. She elaborated: “Anytime I would go on a date, I would ask a guy if I could see his penis. And then I would pull out my disposable camera and I would ask him, ‘Can I take a picture of your penis? Not your face or anything. I just want to remember your penis. It was a nice little coffee table conversation situation.” I have so many followup questions…

-Time’s Up and Rashida Jones have released a PSA about sexual harassment, which was narrated by Donald Glover.

-I’m so here for Evangeline Lilly‘s transformation into an action hero.

Meghan Markle‘s dad just needs to stop. Like, immediately.

-Stellar human being Terry Crews testified to the Senate today about his own sexual assault experience and advocated for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, saying the producer of Expendables 4 threatened retaliation if Crews didn’t drop his sexual assault lawsuit. “I wanted these survivors to know that I believe them, I supported them and that this happened to me too.”

Robert De Niro says the Weinstein Company still owes him almost $1 million for Silver Linings Playbook. Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino have also said they’re owed considerable amounts of money, with the latter reportedly claiming for around $4 million.

David Lynch is walking back his Trump comments, saying they were “taken a bit out of context.” Though his clarification kind of makes things worse, IMO.

-How did I miss that David Beckham left his longtime manager, who also manages Victoria, last week. Although they just posed together. This is all very confusing.

-It’s the 20th anniversary of Out of Sight, which is in my top 5 movies of all time.

-This Henry Cavill gif messed me up.

Keiynan Lonsdale is a human unicorn and I love him. He opened his home to MTV to talk about about being young, queer, and creative.

-I’m really digging the trailer for the new British series A Discovery of Witches, starring Theresa Palmer and Matthew Goode as a scholarly witch and a vampire who fall in love in Oxford.

Denzel Washington plays a Lyft driver you really don’t want to piss of in The Equalizer 2 trailer.

-I really like Ariana Grande. The girl’s been through a lot and always seems unfailingly sweet with a good head on her shoulders. But she *just* got out of a two-year relationship. What’s the rush, girl?

-Vince Vaughn was arrested for DUI this weekend — and had the happiest mug shot ever.

Lady Gaga gave a brave, emotional speech about mental illness while presenting an award to her mother this weekend: “I can’t remain silent any longer. The passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain has made me want to speak up about my mental illness. I have been experiencing suicidal ideation and cyclical obsessive suicidal thoughts for the past four years.”

Patton Oswalt shared Anthony Bourdain‘s brutally honest email about eating out in Paris and it’s wonderful. (I went to L’Avant Comptoire based on his Layover episode and adored it.)

-Praise be! Ocean’s 8 bumped Solo: A Star Wars Story from the top of the box office, and opened higher than any other Oceans movie.

-Speaking of things I love, these photos from EW’s Queer As Folk reunion make my heart sing.

Scarlett Johansson dines with Hitler in this first look at Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit. “Nazi comedy” doesn’t exactly sound like my jam, but I will watch whatever this guy puts out forever.

-The next Carpool Karaoke features the cast of Tag. I kind of hate how much this made me laugh. Who knew Renner had this in him?

Jada Pinkett Smith continues to use her Facebook show for family therapy. In her latest episode, she told daughter Willow that she had given herself “multiple orgasms” by her age. Somehow, Willow did not run screaming from the room.

Sarah Jessica Parker just launched her own book imprint.

-TBS renewed its quirky comedy People of Earth for a third season — and then changed their mind and cancelled it.

-I spent a lot of time yesterday being jealous of all the people I follow on Twitter who were attending the Felicity cast reunion at ATX. Amanda Foreman (who played Meghan) seemed to be the only one who remembered the weird time-travel plot of the last five episodes. Scott Foley didn’t even remember that his character died!

-In light of all the stuff that’s happening on Fear the Walking Dead (which I don’t watch, but the actor affected sounds devastated by it), this is a great thread on how women over 40 are still hugely underrepresented on TV, and even when they’re there, the usual TV “rules” don’t apply to them.

-This is an excellent (and scary) article on sexual misconduct at Toronto’s music venues.

-The fight spills outside the ring in the new Glow season 2 trailer.
