Angelina Jolie and Kids Teach Us How to Eat Bugs

-Does Angelina Jolie even need a publicist? Her very selective outlet choices this week suggests no¬†— even though there is a definite shift towards family talk and kid exposure. She even cooked and ate bugs with her kids for the BBC.

-George Clooney says he and Amal will limit their travel to dangerous places now that twins are on the way. He also insists they spend more time together than we know (“People think we are never together, but we have not been separated for more than a week.”)

George also says he’s tired of Trump and Bannon’s hypocrisy, reminding the world that they are part of the “Hollywood elite.” (“Donald Trump has 22 acting credits. He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund…Steve Bannon is a failed film writer.”)

David Cross and Amber Tamblyn announced their new daughter and made fun of celebrity baby names at the same time.

Harrison Ford came dangerously close to colliding with an American Airlines plane in newly released video.

David Cassidy, who just revealed he’s battling dementia, says he “never had a relationship” with his daughter, Arrow star Katie Cassidy.

-Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom will be starring in a dark comedy with Adam Pally? Put it in my eyeballs now!

-The secret Oscar voter interviews are starting to trickle out, and they’re horrifying as usual. The first one features an actress who HATED Arrival (“It just sucked”), had a hard time voting for Best Actress (“I liked none of them”), and had strong thoughts on the foreign film category (“Germans are not funny!”). The second voter, a publicist, took a more measured approach, but still had some strong opinions (“Let me tell you, I did not understand The Lobster ‚ÄĒ it made me nuts”). Do Academy members even like movies?!

-The Honest Trailers crew took on this year’s Oscar nominations. I love the Fences bit.

-So what are the chances¬†Matt Damon is going to “crash”¬†Jimmy Kimmel‘s opening monologue at the Oscars? 97%?

-A huge Hollywood initiative has launched to battle gender inequality. There are big names connected to this.

Gwen Stefani spent a lot of time during her Seth Meyers interview gushing about Blake Shelton. Sigh.

-This Iron Fist featurette explains a lot more about the show than the trailers did.

Charlie Hunnam pulls the sword from the stone (which sounds dirty but sadly isn’t) in the new King Arthur trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for First They Killed My Father, a Netflix film directed by Angelina Jolie. Her 15-year-old son Maddox has an executive producer credit on this thing.

Jason Segel and Rooney Mara investigate the afterlife in The Discovery trailer. Seriously Hollywood, does she have to be cast in EVERY movie??

Miley Cyrus Says No More Red Carpets, Publicists

miley-cyrus-elle-cover

-In her new Elle cover story, Miley Cyrus explains why she won’t do¬†any more red carpets:¬†“I had to do the [A Very Murray Christmas] premiere, and I will never do a red carpet again. Why, when people are starving, am I on a carpet that’s red? Because I’m ‘important’? Because I’m ‘famous’? That’s not how I roll. It’s like a skit‚ÄĒit’s like Zoolander.” That all sounds well and good, but as¬†George Stephanopoulos pointed out on GMA this morning, how is appearing on a magazine much different than walking a carpet?

Gwen Stefani is bringing back her problematic Harajuku girls in an animated series for Nickelodeon.

Miles Teller sounds like he’s in the dark¬†on the possibility of Divergent becoming a TV movie. “I’ve learned everything I know from the trades.”

-I was super charmed by La La Land last night (and my Ryan Gosling at the Q&A). Definitely my favourite thing I’ve seen at TIFF so far.

-Huh. So Vulture quoted me¬†in an article about Tom Ford¬†(and possibly read to him what I said about his movie?). That’s not weird at all.

Amanda Seyfried is engaged to Thomas Sadoski. Blind item readers everywhere are raising a glass…

-I don’t watch the Great British Bakeoff but I have friends who are obsessed with it. Too bad it sounds like the show is falling apart behind the scenes.

Ryan Lochte‘s debut on DWTS¬†was interrupted when a person rushed the stage during Monday night’s premiere. It looked kind of violent.

-Not surprisingly,¬†Naya Rivera doesn’t have a lot of nice things to say about Lea Michele in her new book.

Meg Ryan, James Corden, and Adam Scott acted out Beyonce lyrics last night.

-The new Westworld trailer is super creepy.

-Nice! Donald Glover’s¬†Atlanta premiere had the best ratings of any basic cable comedy in three years.

Samantha Bee continues to kill it.

Director X confirmed¬†Rihanna & Drake’s relationship. It was nice of him to not go, “well duh!” though.

-For some reason, Bradley Cooper decided to talk to Michelle Obama about his junk.

-This Adrian Grenier interview  is beyond ridiculous. I love it.

-I probably wasn’t supposed to snicker through the entire Fifty Shades Darker trailer, right?

Margot Robbie Gets Creepily Profiled by Vanity Fair

margot-robbie-bikini-vanity-fair

-The new¬†Vanity Fair cover story on Margot Robbie is so fawning and male gaze-y, I actually feel bad for her. From the nonsensical¬†opening paragraph (“She is tall but only with the help of certain shoes”) to the unintentionally sexual¬†flourishes (“The job of the celebrity journalist: peg ‚Äėem so it‚Äôs not only as if you know ’em but always have known ’em or someone just like ’em. But Robbie is too fresh to be pegged”) to the weird transitions (“We sat for a moment in silence. She was thinking of something; I was thinking of something else”), it’s no wonder the internet is tearing it apart piece by superfluous piece. Not surprisingly, it’s from the same author who wrote that atrocious Nic Pizzolatto profile last year.

-At least he’s not lying about the fact that she’s only 26.

-Speaking of cover stories, Gwen Stefani opens up about her¬†discovery of¬†Gavin Rossdale‘s rumoured affair with the nanny in the new Harper’s Bazaar.¬† She says she found out the day after the Grammy Awards.¬†“It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret” and adds¬†“All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have”.

-This is fascinating: Jezebel polled some publicists to see if they think the Taylor Swift/Tom Hiddleston romance is fake. (I want to read an entire memoir written by that third publicist, since her whole quote is basically the embodiment of the fire emoji.)

Francis Bean‘s short-lived marriage may have¬†cost her the guitar her dad played during Nirvana’s Unplugged appearance.

-To prep for its big move from CBS to the CW, Supergirl’s first season will re-air starting in August. It wasn’t for me, but the more eyeballs on¬†female superhero shows, the better.

Stephen Colbert‘s story about meeting his wife will make you swoony.

Jesse Williams is vacationing with his Grey’s costar Ellen Pompeo, and she shared an adorable video of him pushing her off a paddle board.

-Also, even though he’s on holiday, Jesse’s still woke.

-Another day, another story about Louis CK being the exact opposite of how we all hope he is. ::sad face::

Mila Kunis looks lovely in her makeup-free shots¬†Glamour magazine. I mean, if I was a rich 32-year-old I’d probably have dewy skin too, but still.

Conan O’Brien and Timothy Olyphant prove “TV’s a lie” in this scrapped clip.

Alex Kingston has joined the Gilmore Girls revival, which makes me very happy.

-Nothing really happens in the first trailer for FX’s new show Wake Up, but it stars Donald Glover so I’m already in the bag for it.
