Reese Witherspoon Gets Her 4th of July On

Reese Witherspoon is looking hella festive today.

-The backlash over Scarlett Johansson being cast in transgender role does not seem to be dying down anytime soon. The more I think about her statement, the angrier I get about it.

-This video of an old dude trying to cop a feel of Mel B during The X Factor is so bad. Especially gross is Simon Cowell‘s immediate attempts to dismiss it.

-I keep forgetting/repressing the fact that Billy Crudup and Naomi Watts are together.

Joshua Jackson talked about why he didn’t hesitate to protest family separation at the US border: “Canadians should be just as outraged.” God damn, Pacey grew up so good!

Felicity Jones got married. I like the honeymoon style way more than the wedding style (though it is very “her”).

-Proof that the Star Wars fandom has been toxic for a long time: actor Ahmed Best says he considered suicide over the backlash and death threats he got over his character, Jar Jar Binks.

-I don’t even read comic books and this Batman wedding stuff is kind of breaking my heart.

Yvette Nicole Brown says she is just “filling in” for Chris Hardwick at Comic-Con, not “jockeying” for his job. Take it!

-Aww, this bums me out: My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Nia Vardalos and Felicity/Cougar Town’s Ian Gomez have filed for divorce after 23 years of marriage.

-An advertising watchdog found 51 examples of false advertising on GOOP’s website.

-Of all the people who could have defended Morgan Freeman following accusations of sexual harassment made against him by eight women, I didn’t think it would be Suzanne Somers. She said “Well, this probably won’t be real popular, but I think that women…I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like, of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman’s a big flirt. I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair. He’ll like a lot of things…I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.” Ugh.

-I like that David Foster‘s kids seem to be having fun with his engagement to the much younger Katherine McPhee.

-The video at the bottom of this article of the Set It Up couple setting up people on first dates is so adorable.

-Speaking of Set It Up, I watched it a friend’s house last weekend and couldn’t figure out why it looked so weird. It’s cause her TV has motion smoothing turned on. This makes so much sense now…

-I really enjoyed this interview with Dietland’s Marti Noxon, in which she talks about getting into “toe-to-toe screaming matches” with Sharp Objects director Jean-Marc Vallée, and all the flack she took for Buffy season six. I love that she calls Xander the embodiment of “impotent male anger.” I never realized what a gross character he was until I did a rewatch years later.

-I’m not exactly a crafty person, but man NBC’s Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman looks like a ton of fun. Now that The Handmaid’s Tale is wrapping up, this is about as heavy as I want my summer TV to get.

-I kinda want to see Skyscraper for some reason? I blame Neve Campbell’s presence.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.

Tom Cruise’s Buttgate

-The possibility of Tom Cruise wearing a fake butt in Valkyrie is literally making my week.

-Well, this is a twist: Selena Gomez’s Instagram was hacked and used to post nude photos of Justin Bieber.

-Speaking of hacks, Katharine McPhee is suing over her nude photo leak.

Joshua Jackson is dating a model and I hope she recognizes what a precious unicorn he is.

-This is a really, really good interview with Kathy Griffin on the aftermath of her controversial Trump photo. Yes, it was a stupid move, but her being made to constantly apologize over a picture is ridiculous.

George Clooney is kicking off his Suburbicon press tour, which means we’re about to be blessed with lots of glorious soundbites. In a new interview with the AP, he rips apart Trump, saying he’s “in over his head” and “incapable of being president.” He also talked about twin barf.

-Leaks, schmeaks. Game of Thrones logged another all-time high on Sunday with 16.5M night-of viewers.

-This is really weird GoT gossip: apparently Lena Headey (Cersei) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) used to date and now hate each other IRL.

-Speaking of all things Thrones, here’s the first teaser for Kit Harington‘s upcoming drama, Gunpowder.

Reese Witherspoon will guest-star on The Mindy Project? Sure.

Beyoncé, Kevin Hart, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Drake and more have pledged to help Houston. Sandra Bullock just outshined them all by donating $1 million to help Hurricane Harvey victims, saying “We have to take care of one another.”

-Twenty years after Buffy, costume designer Cynthia Bergstrom is sharing some throwback behind-the-scenes fun facts. True story: I went to a costume party last weekend and I made friends by yelling at a girl on the dance floor “Oh my god, are you dressed as Buffy about to fight the Master in the S1 finale?!” It was awesome.

-More proof that Hollywood needs new ideas: the summer box office is tracking to miss $4 billion mark for first time since 2006.

-This is a good rundown of when all the new and returning TV shows start this fall.

-When the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans debuted, everyone made fun of Medusa’s hair. The second trailer features her with a shaved head. It’s not much better.
