Jennifer Lopez Wears Just a Cape in InStyle

Jennifer Lopez is almost 50,  and she somehow manages to look like she hasn’t changed in two decades. Her latest InStyle profile is getting a lot of buzz — less for the cover and more for the nearly nude inside shot that’s a clever take on her infamous Grammy dress.

Harry Styles interviews Timothée Chalamet in the new issue of i-D magazine, and I could read them talk about masculinity and feeling a new sense of freedom to be more feminine all the damn day long.

-Wait, so Game of Thrones has a whole EW cover story and they didn’t use that to announce the premiere date?

-I can’t bring myself to listen to the latest GOOP podcast because Julia Roberts + Gwyneth Paltrow is just too much flinty rich white ladies to handle at once, but Roberts reportedly talked about meeting her husband and revealed that George Clooney is a bit of a gossip.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris took their son treat-or-treating, and the ex-couple’s respective significant others joined in on the fun.

-Out of all the Toronto bars I’d expect Shawn Mendes to pop up at for an impromptu bartending stint, Petty Cash was not one of them.

-Everyone is talking about how nutso Keira Knightley’s performance in The Nutcracker is. I think what she’s doing with her voice would be way more shocking if Michelle Williams hadn’t just done something very similar in I Feel Pretty.

-Meanwhile, Keira can’t quite remember how her Love Actually character ended up. “I’ve only seen it once, and it was a really long time ago. So I don’t go off with Andrew Lincoln?”

-Once again, Heidi Klum was super extra on Halloween. This year she went as Fiona from Shrek.

-Have you ever fallen down the “Avril Lavigne is really dead and she’s been replaced by a body double named Melissa” rabbit hole? Do yourself a favour: carve out some time on the next rainy afternoon and let the crazy engulf you. A radio host asked her about it and she said the conspiracy theory was “so weird. Like, why would they even think that?” That’s not a denial, Avril!!

Will Smith and Tom Holland get animated for the new trailer for Spies in Disguise.

 

Victoria Beckham Explains Why She Doesn’t Want a Spice Girls Reunion

Victoria Beckham covers Vogue Australia

Victoria Beckham looks amazing in the pages of Vogue Australia (though I’m not sold on the flesh-coloured bandeau). In the interview, she talks about why she doesn’t want to do a Spice Girls reunion (“I always wanted to do fashion, so I was lucky that music was never my main passion. For the other girls it was”) and why she left the group in the first place (“I remember sitting very near to the front [at an Elton John concert] and looking at him singing those songs he’d sung time after time, year after year, and his passion and his enjoyment was incredible, even after all that time. And a few nights later, I was on stage at Madison Square Garden with the Spice Girls and I thought: ‘It’s almost like a waste that I’m given this opportunity. I appreciate the time I’ve had with the girls, but I don’t have what Elton can have after all these years.’ There was nothing there, other than that my kids were in the audience and I wanted them to see Mummy doing the Spice Girls.”).

Bryan Singer is working hard to get ahead of an article that Esquire is about to publish an article that he says will ruin his career.

-This article about how Timothee Chalamet is the perfect movie star for 2018 (according to producers, agents and studio execs) is so, so weird.  There’s lots of talk about how he’s a soft “beta” and not a hard “alpha” like Leonardo DiCaprio by people who clearly forget that Leo was a teen heartthrob for decades (“He’s pretty fey,” says one veteran studio hand and Academy voter in his 60s. “He might be the next Anthony Perkins, rather than the next Leo”).  This part is especially gross: “Girls love him now because I don’t think they’re scared of him…You’re selling the new male. What does the new male movie star look like in a post #MeToo world, where you can’t get away with all the things the alpha guys used to crush it at?” What exactly were you trying to get away with before?!

-Speaking of articles that deal a lot about traditional movie star archetypes, Viggo Mortensen talks about how not becoming famous until he was in his 40s helped him avoid celebrity traps. I have mixed feelings about Green book — I liked it but it’s problematic — but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s part of the mix when Oscar talk comes around. (Also, I can’t believe he’s going to be 60 in 5 days!)

-I was genuinely surprised by Meghan Markle’s pregnancy announcement. I wonder how Princess Eugenie feels about the fact that they announced it to the family at her wedding?

-Twitter is fantasy casting a movie with Kerry Washington and Chris Evans, and Washington is into it because she’s no fool.

Jennifer Garner says an Alias reboot may be in the works. Despite my reboot fatigue, I don’t hate this idea.

-Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Scott Thomas have designed sweaters, with proceeds going to their fave charities.

Nicole Kidman has not one, but two movies that are generating Oscar buzz (Boy Erased and Destroyer) so she’ll be doing quite a bit of press in the next few months. Still, I’m surprised that she talked about Tom Cruise in a new interview while addressing #MeToo: “I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of [the marriage] at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”

-I really like Ariana Grande and I hope she’s doing ok after her split from Pete Davidson. At least it happened before the wedding.

-On a new podcast, Taran Killam got candid about the mood behind the scenes on SNL: “When Seth Meyers left the show, the dynamic changed quite a bit. He was the last person there who I witnessed really collaborate with Lorne, as opposed to just kind of do what Lorne says.”

Drake comes off really, really well when talking about his drama with Pusha T in Lebron James’ new HBO show The Shop.

Ansel Elgort is living two different lives in the Jonathan trailer.

Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms Marriage to Brad Falchuk

Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk got married this weekend, which she confirmed with an Insta pic of their simple wedding bands. The intimate ceremony at her Hamptons home was reportedly attended by Robert Downey Jr., Jerry Seinfeld, Rob Lowe, Steven Spielberg, and Cameron Diaz.

Cardi B turned herself into the NYPD today and was given a summons in connection with an assault at a strip club, during which she allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders because they may have slept with Offset. Her lawyers denied her involvement and she’ll appear in court at a later date.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Matthew Weiner addressed Mad Men writer Kater Gordon‘s accusation that he once told her she owed it to him to let him see her naked, saying “I really don’t remember saying that. I’m not hedging to say it’s not impossible that I said that, but I really don’t remember saying it.” (When the reporter called him back to clarify his statement a few days later, he said “I know this seems weird, but I can’t imagine that I used the word ‘hedging.'” She checked; he did.)

-The news that Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp might be dating is exactly what our hardened hearts need right now.

-I think my enjoyment of A Star Is Born is going to be dependent on how much I avoid Bradley Cooper‘s interviews about it. In W, he says he lost out on roles early in his career because he was told he wasn’t f–kable enough. As an Alias fan, I’m finding this hard to reconcile because I remember him being EXTREMELY f–kable on that show.

Matt Damon‘s Kavanaugh impression reportedly came together just hours before the SNL premiere.  Colin Jost ran the idea past Damon sometime after midnight on Friday, and the actor flew from California on Sat and arrived at SNL’s 30 Rock studio at 4 p.m. to begin rehearsals.

-Meanwhile, in a pro-Trump speech after SNL went off the air, Kanye West said he was “bullied” backstage for wearing MAGA hat. He then talked about the 13th amendment in a tweet that did NOT go over well.

West also says he’s trying to arrange a meeting between Colin Kaepernick and Trump.

-Netflix is planning to roll out interactive features on shows including Black Mirror that will enable viewers to choose their own endings. Man, this seems like a super bad idea.

-I’m very into this suggestion that Dev Patel be considered as the next Bond. Very, very into it.

Taylor Swift showed up to support boyfriend Joe Alwyn at Friday’s premiere of The Favourite, a movie critics are LOVING.

-This is a great profile on Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Synder and how she’s bucking the current “prestige TV” trends (dark, slow, gruesome, gritty, miserable, male, etc.)  “When Jane started I was really, actively thinking, ‘Can a protagonist be an interesting person if they’re also a really good person? Can their life be complicated if they’re not doing all these terrible things and forced into these extreme situations?'”

-People are going nuts for this essay about The English Patient.

-Yikes — this review of Jennifer Garner’s HBO show Camping is pretty scathing. It’ll be interesting to see if other critics agree.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Runaways, I show I really liked and then promptly forgot about.

-Watch Taron Egerton play Elton John in the Rocketman trailer.
