-After it came out that he reportedly staged photos with paps, Meghan Markle’s dad is no longer attending the royal wedding. Is it just me, or does her messed up family make her more relatable?

-Meanwhile, George and Amal Clooney reportedly nabbed an invite.

-Do I have to rethink my whole stance on Benedict Cumberbatch? In a new interview, he says actors should boycott projects that do not pay woman the same amount as their male co-stars. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.'”

This is a great take on Anna Wintour‘s recent editor’s letter in Vogue, in which she insist Georgina Chapman had no knowledge of husband Harvey Weinstein‘s behaviour.

-The actors who are in Hawaii filming the Netflix movie Triple Frontier continue to bless us with wonderful photos. This time, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund are running shirtless on a beach.

-I really like Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons’ baby name. Huh.

-Led by Cate Blanchett, 82 women climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals at Cannes to call for gender equality in the film industry.

Cardi B deleted her Instagram account following a spat with Azealia Banks.

Chris Hemsworth‘s daughter came up to him and said she wanted a penis like her brothers and he had the best possible response.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his interview with ET in the most Harrison Ford-ish way. “Get out of my chair.”

-As New Girl winds down this week, Zooey Deschanel reveals that T.J. Miller almost played Schmidt. Thank god that didn’t happen.

Busy Phillips supporting her Dawson’s Creek pal Joshua Jackson on Broadway makes me smile.

Pink let a fan sing at her Vancouver concert and it was great.

-This Is Us star Justin Hartley says a female fan sexually harassed him — and then got angry when he didn’t want to pose for a selfie.

-Not gonna lie: Mandy Moore crying about filming *that* scene in last season’s This Is Us kinda got to me.

-For Mother’s Day, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a nude photo of herself just before she gave birth to Apple in 2004.

-On the latest episode of Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Facebook show, her daughter Willow shocked her by revealing that she started cutting to deal with the post-“Whip My Hair” fame.

-Even though he once wrote an editorial pushing for his blacklisting, powerhouse agent Ari Emanuel is now reportedly helping Mel Gibson’s return to Hollywood — in order to please Mark Wahlberg.

-Another Transparent crew member alleges that Jeffrey Tambor kissed her without her consent. Meanwhile, Amazon has pulled him from the Emmy race.

-Oh no. Ex-NCIS actress Pauley Perrette says he endured “multiple physical assaults” on the set.

-I had no idea when I was watching last week’s Atlanta that it was already the season finale. What a nearly perfect second season. I still don’t know what to think about that ending, tho.

Ryan Reynolds sang ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie dressed as unicorn on a Korean TV show. This promo tour is wild, y’all.

-Most of the TV cancellations and renewals have been announced (though NBC still hasn’t pulled the trigger on Timeless, despite Kelly Clarkson and Leslie Jones caping for it). Agents of Shield was renewed, Gotham is coming back for a final 13 episodes (which will take them to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication), Lethal Weapon will return with Seann William Scott replacing Clayne Crawford, and CBS dropped Kevin Can Wait and Scorpion. Perhaps most surprising were the seemingly slam-dunk pilots that weren’t picked up, including Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba‘s Bad Boys spinoff,  Hannah Simone‘s Greatest American Hero reboot, and Katie Holmes‘ FBI drama.

-This is a good explainer on why Fox was particularly brutal with the axe this season (TL;DR: NFL, a desire for multicam sitcoms, lack of show ownership, and the Disney deal.)

-Fox also announced they have no more plans for The X Files. Good on Gillian Anderson for hitting up Twitter and refusing to shoulder the blame for the show not going forward.

-This is a great interview with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s showrunner about the roller coaster of emotions he experienced in the 13 hours between Fox cancelling it and NBC picking it up.

-I seemed to be the only person on Twitter this weekend who did not watch The Kissing Booth on Netflix, which meant I didn’t get to partake in the freakout when it was revealed the main stars are dating IRL.

-The first trailer for Spike Lee‘s highly-anticipated BlacKkKlansman has landed, starring John David Washington (Denzel’s son) and Adam Driver.

Females Take a Backseat at the Grammys — Except for Blue Ivy

-The Grammys were last night and they were…weird. The red carpet was strangely subdued, the show’s best moments were from women but they were generally overlooked as the trophies were being handed out, and Kesha’s performance was transcendent but it highlighted just how much the music industry has ignored the Me Too movement. And then came the interview with Recording Academy president Neil Portnow who, when asked why there were so few female winners, had the gall to say that women have “to step up.” (Pink has already taken to Twitter to slam that comment.) He also said of the lack of Lorde performance: “There’s no way we can really deal with everybody.” Um, you had a Shaggy and Sting duet. But ok, then.

-The Grammys did, however, gift the world with this amazing GIF of Blue Ivy trying to get her parents to stop embarrassing her, and it was glorious. This photo of a bystander looking freaked out by being in Beyonce‘s presence is a close second.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx looked very couple-y at a Grammys pre-party.

Kate Winslet now says she has “bitter regrets” about working with Woody Allen.

-Oh god. Diane Keaton just took to Twitter to defend Woody.

-Oh god, squared. Julie Delpy reportedly implied that blackness is easier than womanhood. Nope, nope, nope.

-Former Charles In Charge star Nicole Eggert has accused Scott Baio of unspecified impropriety when she was a teenager. She tweeted “Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep” and then added “It started when I was 14. Wasn’t a one time deal.” He’s denied any wrongdoing.

-I keep forgetting that Kirsten Dunst is baking a baby Landry!

Oprah is rocking a Gucci coat for the cover of InStyle’s March issue.

-The fact that Busy Phillips spent a large portion of her weekend trying to recreate the karma’s a bitch meme makes me love her even more.

-I only watched 10 minutes of Stana Katic‘s new show and though it seems good, the water tank scene freaked me out too much to continue. While doing press for the show, she broke her silence about ABC’s terrible treatment of her when Castle ended (after eight years as the female lead she was let go from the show at the end of the season, only for it not to get renewed anyway a month later). “I’m actually still not clear on the thought process behind the way that it went down… It hurt and it was a harsh ending.”

-The CW announced its Charmed reboot and original star Holly Marie Combs is not here for itShannen Doherty was a bit more positive, but hated that they’re calling it a “feminist” reboot as if the original wasn’t. She’s got a point.

James Franco was photoshopped out of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood cover at the last minute.

-Mark your calendars: Game Of Thrones’ next season will premiere in April 2019.

-Wait, so Justin Timberlake has already released three singles from his upcoming album? How did I miss two of them?

-This article about Dawson’s Creek’s anniversary and how the show redefined teen romance by moving away from the unquestionable belief that women belonged to men.

Nicole Kidman‘s hidden talent is eating bugs (which isn’t really a hidden talent at all. I can eat bugs — and have. I can’t recite all the US presidents in order like Dakota Fanning. Or fence like Greta Gerwig. Vanity Fair is getting really lax with the criteria for this series…)

-This Matthew Broderick story is perfect.

Tom Cruise watching slow-motion video of his own ankle breaking is oddly compelling.

-Just when I thought that I couldn’t like Black Lightening any more comes news that Jill Scott is joining the show as a supervillain.

Will Smith on YouTube is making my life. He buys fancy equipment for it! He spends his trip to Australia looking for Hugh Jackman and Margot Robbie (who aren’t there)!

-Speaking of Hugh Jackman, I haven’t seen The Greatest Showman because I once had to write an essay on PT Barnum for school and that guy was problematic af, but this video of Hugh crying during the rehearsal of the show’s big number is pretty swelling.

Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy fall in love in the Submergence trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for Unsane, Steven Soderbergh’s new psychological thriller starring Claire Foy. I’m sufficiently intrigued and/or freaked out.
