Michelle Obama Nails Harry Styles in His 1D

-Twitter is going wild for a video clip from James Corden’s show that featured Michelle Obama hitting Harry Styles in the balls with a dodgeball, proving that sometimes the internet is made for good.

Hannah Gadsby goes no holds barred in her Variety interview, and it’s glorious. “Things that can f— off, or at least deeply reconsider their choices, according to Gadsby: A Star Is Born (“If I woke up and someone I met yesterday was just watching me, they would not have a straight nose”); colonization (“‘manspreading’ is the definition of civilization”); Game of Thrones”(“It’s a fantasy. There are dragons. Why are women getting raped?!”); Taylor Swift (“a can of Coke”).”

-We just got our first look at Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women adaptation and oh yeah, am I here for it.

-I deeply related to Jennifer Lawrence feeling ignored after pal Amy Schumer had a baby. She sent Schumer a series of texts  about The Handmaid’s Tale, and then jokingly blamed the baby when the comedian didn’t respond. “Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11?? Is this bc of the baby? Don’t make me resent the baby.”

-Yesterday, the Daily Beast released a story in which eight women accused Hollywood filmmaker Max Landis of emotional and sexual abuse, which follows years of rumours and social media chatter. Director Josh Trank then tweeted: “I 100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of Chronicle, and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012.” Since the article broke, his managers have left him and MGM decided not to go ahead with his movie starring Idris Elba.

-Early buzz for Spider-Man: Far From Home is pretty positive.

Angelina Jolie has a new gig: journalist! She’s a contributing editor for Time and will pen monthly articles.

-This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman keeps hinting at a possible Pitch revival and if this doesn’t work out I’ll be really bummed.

-Womp womp. Linsday Lohan’s reality show has been cancelled and her Mykonos nightclub has reportedly closed.

-I never thought I’d say this — but I’m on Bella Thorne‘s side on this one. Whoopi Goldberg basically slut-shamed her for the release of her hacked nudes and blamed her instead of the creepy hacker.

-I saw Men In Black: International last week and as charming as Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are, that this is a mess. Now I know why, thanks to this behind the scenes recount of all the drama. Sony considered turning it into a crossover with 21 Jump Street, and while they were filming the actors were getting new script pages daily, and Thompson and Hemsworth then hired their own dialogue writers.

-In happier Hemsworth news, him singing “Hurt” on the Endgame set is kinda perfect. He was also very cute on The Late Late Show, attempting to be a waiter.

-Yikes. A crew member was reportedly stabbed in the neck on the set of Anne Hathaway’s new movie.

-The trailer for season 3 of Glow looks great. Netflix has been on a real cancelling kick lately, but I hope this show sticks around a bit.

-The Television Critics Association nominations always reflect what I’m watching on TV way more than the Emmys, and this year’s batch is no different. The “individual achievement in a comedy” category is especially strong: Pamela Adlon, Bill Hader, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

-I’m very here for Kirsten Dunst returning to TV in a quirky comedy.

-This Vulture article about romance author Sherrilyn Kenyon, who accused her husband of poisoning her, is a wild ride.

-Ewan McGregor and Jacob Tremblay revisit The Shining universe in the Doctor Sleep trailer.

The Internet Reacts to Jessica Biel’s Anti-Vaxxer Comments

[programming note — I’m taking a few days off. Be back June 19th!]

Jessica Biel was spotted out having a good time with Justin Timberlake last night when her anti-vaxx views hit the fan. She then made an  an Instagram post, and claimed that she is “not against vaccinations” and that her “concern” with the bill “is solely regarding medical exemptions”. Except, as many people have pointed out, the bill she’s fighting doesn’t stop doctors exempting children who have genuine medical reasons. It’s designed for people to stop trying to bribe their doctors for a BS exemption. This is not her first time talking about this, and it still makes no sense.

-Twitter reacted harshly to Biel’s statement. Also, she’s probably the anti-vaxx actress Mindy Kaling referenced in her book, right??

Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in and is now in custody after the actor was accused of forcefully touching a woman’s chest while they were at a club.

Justin Bieber decided that maybe picking a fight with Tom Cruise wasn’t his best idea ever.

-Despite having a massive following on Instagram, Selena Gomez is so over the platform’s negativity she deleted the app from her phone.

Idris Elba has a new hobby — stunt car driver.

Nicholas Sparks didn’t want a club for gay students at his prep school. Let’s just stop reading romance from white dudes.

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Amazon show Too Old To Die Young starring Miles Teller is confusing critics — mostly because they were only given the 4th and 5th episode to screen.

Bryan Singer has agreed to pay $150K to settle a rape allegation made against him stemming from an incident on a yacht in 2003.

-Several actors have been disqualified from Emmys voting for breaking the rules.

-I know it’s ridiculous, but I’m here for the Keanu Reeves and Angelina Jolie romance rumours!

-In today’s “humanity is doomed” news: The creator of the Chernobyl series on HBO is asking people to stop taking sultry selfies at the nuclear disaster site.

-The Orphan Black storyline will continue with Tatiana Maslany voicing a new podcast series.

-This is fun: Daniel Radcliffe has joined the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special.

-I adore this feature on 25 episodes that changed television.

Keira Knightley stars in the Official Secrets trailer.

Tessa Thompson Talks Times Up

Tessa Thompson Emma Thompson Men In Black

-In her Marie Claire cover, Tessa Thompson talks about living out everyone’s fantasy by having a spa day with Emma Thompson, and says #TimesUp “allowed me to say things I’m not sure I would have said a year ago. The truth is, the system where you assess international value is inherently sexist and racist because we haven’t had those opportunities. The only way to disrupt that is to create new models.” I love her so much, I can barely remember that she was once that kind of annoying character on Veronica Mars.

-Also, Tessa says Chris Hemsworth is “really sensitive” despite his fame and looks.

-Unfortunately, Tessa and Chris‘s new movie Men In Black isn’t getting great reviews.

-On a podcast with her former costars, Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev says she and Paul Wesleydespised each other” for the first half a season. Between this and the fact that her and Ian Somerhalder seemed to have negative chemistry after they broke up IRL, that set must have been a riot.

-What the hell is Drake doing??

-Welp. Jessica Biel is apparently lobbying California lawmakers alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has some questionable opinions about vaccine.

Miley Cyrus used her anniversary post to shut down split rumours. She’s also apologized for a 2017 comment about not liking hip-hop anymore. “‘This pushed me out of the hip hop scene a little’ was insensitive as it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of ‘the scene.'”

-Did everyone else but me know that Mariska Hargitay has been married to the hot guy from Younger for 15 years?!?

Jon Stewart choked up while testifying during the hearing for reauthorizing the 9/11 victim compensation fund. “What an incredible metaphor this room is. … Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.”

Keanu Reeves had no idea he’s been the internet’s latest boyfriend. “I’ve been what? I didn’t know that…That’s wacky. The positivity is great. It’s really special how [Always Be My Maybe and John Wick 3] have been embraced.”

-After hackers stole 18 hours of outtakes from Radiohead’s “OK Computer” sessions and held them for ranson, the group released them with proceeds going to charity.

-Netflix says Ava DuVernay‘s miniseries on the Central Park Five, When They See Us, has been the most-watched series on the service in the U.S. every day since it debuted on May 31.

Ariana Grande did good.

-I don’t think we need another season of Russian Doll because the first was perfect, but I said that about Big Little Lies and Barry, so what do I know?

-So Bradley Cooper‘s camp seems to be pushing the “he was too busy being an auteur” angle in the break up stories which is…a choice.

-There are two new novels I can’t wait to read this summer: Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s Fleishman Is in Trouble, and Linda Holmes‘ Evvie Drake Starts Over. So I’m thrilled to see excerpts have been released of both! Here’s the one from Fleishman, and here’s Evvie.

-Oh god, this documentary on the late Anton Yelchin is going to be heartbreaking.
