-In Variety’s Emmy’s morning-after interview, This Is Us star Sterling K Brown opens up about his historic win. He also revealed that his naked butt was cut out of his new movie with Kate Hudson. Boo-urns, Hollywood!

-For THR’s fashion issue, celebrities talk about the first time they met their fave designer. I don’t know why Jen Meyers is practically sitting in Jennifer Aniston’s lap, though.

-Speaking of splits, there are rumours that Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen may have broken up after 9 years of marriage.

-The Good Place returns tonight, and it’s one of the few shows I’m actually looking forward to this TV season. Kristen Bell‘s video of her castmates finding out about last year’s shocking twist is perfect.

-It’s DVD season, which means it’s gag reel season! Here are the ones from Arrow,  Timeless,  Criminal MindsSupernatural and The Flash.

Daniel Dae Kim and Ed Skrein are fighting Hollywood whitewashing one Instagram pic at a time.

-This is an interesting look at why award season bait like Hostiles and Disobedience are still without deals after TIFF.  The festival’s late/delayed screening times and issues with attendance reports didn’t help.

-Add Sean Penn to the list of film stars turning to the small screen. (As @ira says, keep it.)

-The Honest Trailer for Wonder Woman is kind of perfect, guy.

-After bringing you Sexy Archie, the CW is developing a dark horror take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Yeah, I’m in.

-A lucky fan got to get her makeup done by Rihanna at Fenty’s London launch.

-I’m kind of done with Netflix’s Marvel shows (with the exception of Jessica Jones and The Runaways), but the first trailer for The Punisher is mighty intriguing.

-Here’s the first trailer for Alicia Vikander as Tomb Raider. I envy her triceps.

 

Taylor Swift Testifies Like a Boss

-On the fourth day of the trial in which a former radio DJ is suing Taylor Swift, claiming her allegations that he groped her butt during a meet-and-greet cost him his job, the singer took the stand to testify — and she was awesome. This asshole should have  just been grateful that all he lost was his job, but instead he decided to try to make some money off of it as if she wasn’t going to own him in court.

-I really, really hate the outfit Marie Claire stuck Emma Stone in on their cover (what’s with that hat?!), but the inside photos are lovely.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are officially parents to a girl, who they (unsurprisingly) named Bodhi Soleil. Oh, and Ian says he’s totally ready for babies because he has kittens.

-This is very sweet: Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris,  Évelyne Brochu, Kristian Bruun and more of the Orphan Black cast and crew praise the importance of the show’s fans, known as the #CloneClub

-Oh my god, Ringer did an oral history of the time a dog ate a heart on One Tree Hill and this might be the best thing I’ve ever read! My favourite part: [Chad Michael Murray declined to comment for this article.]

Channing Tatum busted some Magic Mike-style moves in a gas station convenience store. Bless him.

Justin Theroux may not be very fun to live next to. His neighbor filed a complaint about endless barking from the actor’s rescue dogs left isolated for long periods, dropping heavy weights on the floor at 3 AM, and angry outbursts.

The Crown season 2 trailer is here, if you’re craving some very slow-paced royal drama.

Britney Spears was visibly shaken up after a man rushed on stage mid-concert. In the video, you can hear her ask, “Is something OK? What’s going on? He’s got a gun?”

Kylie Jenner‘s makeup brand made $420 million in just 18 months, and it’s only getting bigger.

Halle Berry says Storm and Wolverine were lovers in the X-Men films. This feels more like head canon/wishful thinking than fact.

Paris Hilton is gonna have a reality show again? Who wants that? (Speaking of Paris Hilton, I recently listened to a great podcast in which a publicist and a tabloid editor talk about her gossip heyday. The most fascinating thing is that they used to meet for lunch once a week to plan out coverage of starlets…)

-Yass Kween! You can now buy Broad City-branded sex toys.

-With news that Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning are joining Woody Allen’s new project comes this interesting piece on why young stars still want to work with him. They shouldn’t.

Drew Barrymore‘s interview about wine wasn’t THAT bad. This feels very nit-picky to me. (Or maybe I just have really, really low expectations of celebrities who have their own wine labels.)

-Hollywood is calling this box office season The Summer Of Hell. Really? Cause it seems to me like a lot of small-budget indies are doing just fine.

Better Things’ Season 2 trailer has arrived. This show kind of fell under the radar but I adored the first season.

-I fully agree with this article. When it comes to TV shows, plot is bullshit.

Jimmy Kimmel asked Americans to find North Korea…and they pointed at Canada.

James Corden and Jeffrey Tambor recreated the Brandy/Monica video “That Boy Is Mine” with “The Boyega Is Mine” with John Boyega and it literally made my entire day.

 

Linkin Park Singer Chester Bennington Dies at 41 in Suspected Suicide

-Another tragedy strikes the rock world: Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington, 41, has been found dead in an apparent suicide. It would have been his close friend Chris Cornell’s birthday today. Celebrities quickly took to Twitter with condolences.

-In terrible timing, a new Linkin Park video was released today and now everyone’s looking at it for deeper meaning.

Lena Dunham will be on American Horror Story’s seventh season, joining the already announced eclectic cast that includes Billy Eichner, Colton Haynes and Billie Lourd.

-I’m fascinated by Charlize Theron‘s Atomic Blonde press tour. She keeps positioning it like it’s the first action film starring a kickass female. It’s not even *her* first.

-Comic-Con kicked off today and saw Channing Tatum and Halle Berry pounding back bourbon during the Kingsmen panel. But in terms of scoop, in the last few years I’ve become way more interested in the stuff that comes out of the TV panels than the movie ones. I will be on Twitter all weekend, swimming in the glorious spoilers.

-HBO’s new Confederate series by Game of Thrones show-runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss is getting a less-than-stellar reaction, with the Daily Beast saying it “sounds stupid as hell” and pretty much everyone wondering why HBO thought it would be a good idea.

Ryan Reynolds‘ granted a dying boy’s wish to FaceTime.

-According to Jason Bateman, the new Arrested Development season will revolve around a Lucille 2 murder mystery.

-Ooh boy, am I not a fan of Jenny Slate’s latest profile in Vanity Fair. First, I think one of the street style shots is, um, problematic. And to rail against the interest in her dating life and compare it to The Handmaid’s Tale (“I’m also just really not open to being known as the woman dating so-and-so. I think that’s four tiny steps away from being Offred”) seems a bit extreme, especially since she was the one who opened that can of worms by being so disarmingly candid about her breakup with Chris Evans.

-Don’t sleep on how cute Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen are together.

-Is Naomi Watts quietly cultivating this summer’s best celebrity Instagram feed?

-Speaking of great Instagram feeds, Celine Dion‘s just keeps delivering.

-Also, Celine may be dating a dancer and I’m already so happy for her.

-I can’t wait to see Girl’s Trip tomorrow. All of the reviews seem to single out Tiffany Haddish as the breakout. Her story on Kimmel about taking Will and Jada Smith on a swamp tour she found on Groupon was killer.

-The survivor of the plane crash that killed two men during the production of Tom Cruise‘s American Made broke his silence amid the lawsuit.

-Insecure is returns on HBO this week, and the reviews for the new season are glowing. I need to catch up on the end of the first season, especially know that I know that Sterling K. Brown will be in the new episodes. Apparently, star Issa Rae met the This Is Us star during this past awards season, and he casually mentioned that he wanted to be on the show.

Taraji P. Henson is playing a kickass assassin in the Proud Mary trailer.
