Robert-Pattinson-GQ-September-issue

-In his new GQ cover story,  Robert Pattinson reveals he went to therapy and talked about his extreme efforts to “disappear” after Twilight. He also revealed his deep love for the movie Waterworld and explained something called a “fecal-matter transplant,” if you’re into that sort of thing.

-Meanwhile, Pattinson recently said that he and FKA twigs are “kind of” engaged, but she didn’t look engaged as she toured Ibiza with French male model Brieuc Breitenstein.

-There may be something to Us Weekly’s cover story about Brangelina not divorcing. Sources are now telling E! News that “they are taking a breather and seeing what happens.”

-Celebrities took to Twitter to cheer on Taylor Swift after her testimony in the groping trial.

Michael Moore’s Broadway show debuted last night, and critics did not approve.

-Gypsy just joined the few Netflix original series to get canceled. On the flip side, GLOW was renewed.

-HBO’s hackers leaked an email from the network, who allegedly offered them $250k.

-I read this epic Friends tweet thread over the weekend about how Rachel/Joey was a much healthier relationship than Rachel/Ross and loved it. Glad to see it’s being widely circulated.

Ryan Murphy made a “creative pivot” and Sarah Paulson is now the star of American Crime Story’s Katrina, which can only be a good thing.

Donald Glover’s THR cover is making me not hate millennial pink so much…

-Speaking of great covers, I love this Nylon one with Kirsten Dunst.

Jimmy Kimmel poses as as Marcia Clark, Jon Snow and Mr. Robot for THR’s new Emmy cover story. The interview is really good, with him talking about surviving ABC even though “it became a very female network. And suddenly my antics were out of place,” his weird ‘no eating two days a week’ diet, and his foodie travel planning.

Kristen Bell introduces Pinksourcing, where women are a bargain at the workplace since you only have to pay them 77 cents on the dollar!

-Kim Kardashian took 1,500 selfies a day on her Mexico vacation. I don’t think she knows what the word “vacation” means.

Britney Spears got bored so she decided to see if she could still do mid-air splits. Hasn’t she heard of Netflix binges?

-Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is a novelist now.

Sofia Vergara is the highest-paid actress on TV. Now think about the work Keri Russell, Tatiana Maslany, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Constance Wu, Sarah Paulson, Aya Cash, Voila Davis, Maura Tierney and Carrie Coon did this year and try not to cry.

-Speaking of actresses doing wonderful work on the small screen, I love this article on how Jane The Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez has the trickiest job on TV.

-Meanwhile in TV news, here’s a good look at how each of the 5 networks are trying to win this year. (I just realized that I’m not watching one single returning show on NBC, Fox, ABC or CBS. Weird.) I’m also so curious to see how Supergirl fares on the CW. I think it’ll be its number one show, but their hopes that it’ll pull in half of its CBS audience seem crazy optimistic to me.

-The new Star Trek series for CBS has been delayed until May, while the Good Wife spinoff has been moved up.

-THR’s oral history of South Park includes an interesting bit about Isaac Hayes quitting. Matt Stone says it was because of the Scientology episode, but Hayes’ son seems to imply it was the Scientologists in his father’s life that made the call after he suffered a stroke. “He was in no position to resign under his own knowledge. At the time, everybody around my father was involved in Scientology — his assistants, the core group of people. So someone quit South Park on Isaac Hayes’ behalf. We don’t know who.”

-Netflix, which pretty much doesn’t cancel anything, say it will end Bloodline.

-The Doctor Strange movie added “an Asian manservant” character to balance Tilda Swinton playing an Asian guru. Not helping, guys.

-A French TV host mocked Jonah Hill’s sex life — after he mocked hers first. I think I love her. (He reportedly canceled all of his French press for the upcoming movie after that interview, because of course he did.)

-Here’s the new trailer for the political thriller Miss Sloane, starring  Jessica Chastain.

Are Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Over?

-Forget the kids going back to school. The true end of summer 2016 was marked today by the reported breakup of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston. (That being said, I’m side-eyeing Us Weekly’s source who’s claiming “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with.” That just can’t be right.)

Demi Lovato got a really big, really ugly tattoo on her arm and Snapped the whole process.

-Not gonna lie: one of the reasons I’m going to the Nocturnal Animals premiere at TIFF is to see how director Tom Ford dresses his leading lady, Amy Adams. She killed it in Venice.

-A movie that I’m not seeing at TIFF but wish I was is Moonlight, which is getting raves. The film continues amazing run for Brad Pitt’s Plan B, which is likely to have a fourth consecutive best picture nominee.

-Wow, Bridget Jones Baby is actually getting good reviews? Did not see that one coming…

-Also, watching Channing fangirl over meeting Simone Biles is all kinds of swoony.

-Lots of good reaction has been written about Lena Dunham‘s problematic comments last week. Complex’s take on her white privilege is getting the most buzz, but I also kind of liked this one about how she’s a f*ckboy.

Jude Law plays a hot pope in a new HBO movie, The Young Pope.
