Penn Badgley

Blake Lively Used to Send Leonardo DiCaprio Pictures of Dolls

-I’m having a rough week, so forgive me if I choose to believe this Vanity Fair interview with the Gossip Girl cast for the show’s 10-year anniversary is a personal gift to me from the universe. There’s lots of great tidbits, including how Blake Lively and Leighton  Meester “were not friends,” how Blake and Penn Badgley hid their breakup from the crew for months, and how Blake used to send photos of dolls to Leonardo DiCaprio when they dated. I also love how Leighton just sounds *so* over it, and Ed Westwick admits he still doesn’t know who Gossip Girl is.

Leah Remini says she refused to try to convert Kevin James to Scientology despite the organization pressuring her to do so. And now he’s gifted her with a sitcom role, so that all worked out for her.

-Blade Runner 2049 is rumoured to be the longest blockbuster since Interstellar. All the sighs.

-After 27 seasons—27!!!—Simpsons composer Alf Clausen has been fired.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are reportedly in couple’s therapy to learn how to be better co-parents. I’m rooting for them, however their family looks.

Kanye West is now being counter-sued by his insurer, who points to their drug and alcohol policies.

-Here’s the first trailer for Mr. Robot season three. I kinda forgot about that show.

-Of course TJ Miller is a frequent Yelp reviewer. Of course he is.

Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves teaming up for a movie is making my inner 90s geek so very happy.

-I feel like we’ve all talked about Justin Bieber’s testicles way too much this week, and it’s only Wednesday.

-This explanation of the Sansa/Ayra stuff from this season of Game of Thrones makes me hate it even more.

-Yikes. Katy Perry is reportedly being sued by a stagehand who lost her toe.

-I can’t believe there are no new movies at the box office this weekend. I can’t remember the last time that happened. And it’s a long weekend!

-I’m bummed that I can’t fit Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing into my TIFF schedule, especially since the reviews out of Venice are so good.

Charlize Theron Gets Tough in W

Charlize Theron W

Charlize Theron previews her ass-kicking role in Atomic Blonde in the new issue of W. She talks about the only bar fight she’s ever been in, accidentally punching Teri Hatcher in the face, and getting injured on set.

-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges. Fargo’s Allison Tolman made a good point on Twitter: what would have the response been if an actress made those types of comments? Katherine Heigl was crucified for much less.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins have finally left the hospital.

Brad Pitt is probably not dating Sienna Miller or Elle McPherson. What other attractive, age appropriate blonde can we throw at him?

Courteney Cox says she’s given up on fillers. Hallelujah!

Bruno Mars was looking real sleepy at the BET Awards last night.

-Meanwhile, Chris Brown and Migos reportedly had an altercation after the BET Awards.

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Fallon playing “Whisper Challenge” led to Jimmy saying “cock” on TV so that’s fun.

-China’s box office rescued Transformers from disaster, continuing a trend of bailouts. The robots-in-disguise sequel collected $69 million in the U.S., a franchise low, but hit $123 million in China, a franchise high there.

-War for the Planet of the Apes is getting really good reviews. Like really, really good. Huh.

-Now that Netflix has started cancelling shows, they just can’t stop. Girlboss is the latest casualty.

-One of Johnny Depp‘s former manager backs up Amber Heard’s accusations against the actor. Well, if a man says it happens I guess everyone can believe her now, right?

-Here are more details about what really went down in the Hans Solo movie. An interesting tidbit: Lucasfilm decided to bring in an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich when they were not entirely satisfied with the performance (acting coaches are not unusual — bringing one in that late into production is.)

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.

-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.

-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.

-The writers for the new season of X Files have been revealed: Darin Morgan is back, but sadly no Vince Gilligan and Frank Spotnitz — and no women! Come on.

-Gossip Girl’s Penn Badgley is a married man. He had a lowkey ceremony at a Brooklyn courthouse with his new wife, who happens to be the sister of Girls star Jemima Kirke.  (I’ll always have a soft spot for Dan… and for this scene).

Nicki Minaj responded to Remy Ma‘s diss track. I feel so out of the loop when it comes to this beef.

-People have been saying they can’t find the Moonlight acceptance speech amid all the footage of the envelope snafu, so here it is. Meanwhile, Barry Jenkins revealed what his Best Picture speech would have been if the moment weren’t so messed up.

-I like that the La La Land producer is downplaying his role in the whole mess.  Yesterday’s stories about how he’s some kind of hero were a little too eye-rolly.

-Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel explained how Matt Damon and Denzel Washington helped him realize what was happening.

Justin Timberlake really used the Oscars to cement his reputation as a garbage person.

Meryl Streep‘s Oscar dress actually included pants. Suck it, Karl!

-What the hell did Diane Kruger wear to an afterparty? Did she always dress like this and we were just blinded by Joshua Jackson’s beauty?

-Speaking of afterparties, look how proud Jennifer Aniston is of Justin Theroux. We get it, Jen. We all saw the sweatpants scene.

-This got lost in all the Oscar shuffle, but Katherine Heigl‘s new show Doubt was cancelled after just two episodes.

-FX is already renewing Ryan Murphy‘s new show Feud for a second season on Charles & Diana. No word on casting yet, but the internet already has opinions.

-The last sitcom cast to demand big bucks is Modern Family’s, and it could end the show.

-I’m so glad The Office’s Jenna Fischer has landed a new TV role. I miss her face.

Ian McShane told Game of Thrones fans to “get out more” and “get a f*cking life.” So I guess he sucks.

-Now you can work out like Gwyneth Paltrow at her $900/month club and eat at her cafe next door.

-I don’t watch Supergirl all the time but I’ve enjoyed this season whenever I’ve caught an ep. But yes, the show does have a Mon-El problem.

-Did you read Herman Koch’s The Dinner a few years ago? Lara Linney, Richard Gere, Steve Coogan and Rebecca Hall star in the upcoming adaptation.
