Nicole Kidman is me that one time my mom was sick and I had to make the entire Christmas dinner on my own.

Sufjan Stevens’s musical tribute to Tonya Harding didn’t make the cut for the movie, but it’s still beautiful.

Fergie is talking about her past addiction to crystal meth.

-I really like Jane the Virgin’s Justin Baldoni. He’s super earnest and that usually bugs me, but for some reason it looks on him. Here’s a part of his TED Talk on supporting women.

-This NYT profile on Gabrielle Union is excellent, and she brings up a very valid point. “I think the floodgates have opened for white women. I don’t think it’s a coincidence whose pain has been taken seriously. Whose pain we have showed historically and continued to show. Whose pain is tolerable and whose pain is intolerable.” This video is incredibly powerful.

-It must suck to be Kate Winslet on this press junket, where she can’t help but answer questions about the film’s director, Woody Allen. Still, she’s got to be able to do better than this.

-Meanwhile, Dylan Farrow asks the tough question: Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?

-Great take on how Al Franken isn’t being denied due process. None of these famous men are.

WB Pulls The Plug on Justice League Junket

-There were a lot of eyes on the upcoming Justice League press junket. Would publicity try to put questions about Weinstein/Affleck‘s conduct on the banned list? Would journalists obey? Looks like we might not get to find out — the WB just cancelled the US junket. Well, that’s one way to get around it, I guess. It’s all up to you now, London journalists!

Lupita Nyong’o is the latest actress to come forward with her own experiences about Harvey Weinstein‘s advances.

-Now that Quentin Tarantino has broken his silence about Weinstein, what matters most is what he does next. Kevin Smith is donating his Weinstein residuals to Women In Film. Channing Tatum halted a movie he was set to direct and produce at Weinstein’s company. These are more than just statements about how men in Hollywood need to do better; these guys are putting money on the line. Will Tarantino?

-Stranger Things lead kid Finn Wolfhard is leaving his talent agency after sexual-assault allegations against his agent.

-I can’t figure out whose camp planted this story about Robert Pattinson wanting FKA twigs back because “that’s the girl he wants to marry.” I’m embarrassed for both of them.

Adam Scott and Ben Schwartz are here to shoot down all your Parks and Rec fan theories.

Scarlett Johansson organized a Hurricane Maria fundraising event with her Avengers co-stars.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is documenting her chemo journey.

-First Beyonce announced her pregnancy, and now she’s released a whole bunch of images from her photoshoot. She really is single-handedly saving this year…

Mariah Carey offered her congratulations to Beyonce (while reminding the world that she had twins first).

THR’s cover story on Girls is great, depending on your Lena Dunham tolerance. She talks about starting with HBO (“It’s the worst pitch you’ve ever read — pretentious and horrifying — but I remember writing it, sitting on the floor listening to Tegan and Sara in my underwear, being like, ‘I’m a genius!'”), that rape/not-rape scene between Shiri Appleby and Adam Driver, and how Jack Antonoff warned her not to make stupid race jokes in public.

-I don’t watch Doctor Who but I’ll certainly start if Olivia Colman or Hayley Atwell take over the lead role.
