Kristen Stewart Won’t Define Her Sexuality or Star in Crappy Sequels

Kristen Stewart is in total DGAF mode during her Variety interview, and I love it. On not returning for the Huntsman sequel, she says “I read a few scripts. None of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go. Maybe Chris [Hemsworth] was more into it. I actually don’t f—ing know.” She also has no interest in defining her sexuality for you. “Me not defining it right now is the whole basis of what I’m about. If you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you.”

-Congrats to Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes, who welcomed their second daughter, Amada Lee Gosling, on April 29.

-Speaking of new dads, Justin Timberlake is just constantly covered in poop these days.

-I bought the new Radiohead album the second I found out that “True Love Waits” is on it. I’ve been waiting for an official version of that song for 20 years.

-Here’s an  interesting look at who exactly is behind the Beyhive.

-In yesterday’s late night shenanigans, Cyndi Lauper and James Corden sang a parody called ‘Girls Just Want Equal Funds‘, Elizabeth Olsen and Anthony Mackie practiced their Scarlet Witch choreographyJodie Foster braved Egg Russian Roulette with Jimmy Fallon, Ryan Gosling bulged out, Stephen Amell admitted to being scared by little girls, and Daveed Diggs (Lafayette!) proved he’s the fastest rapper on Broadway.

-Meanwhile, Seth Meyers is killing it with his Trump coverage.

-I seriously don’t know who convinced Daniel Radcliffe to play a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man but I’m intrigued by its weirdness. Here’s the latest NSFW trailer.

-They’re remaking The Craft? Hollywood is populated by monsters.

-This week’s GOOP arrived with with the subject line “sex issue” so I thought it would be a swell idea to open it in a meeting. It wasn’t. Besides all the hippy-dippy stuff about making your own organic lube, there’s also sex toy recommendations that include a $15,000 dildo.

John Oliver tries to separate the bullshit from the science in his new segment on widely reported studies.

Geena Davis staged a League of Their Own reunion!

-If you tweet a headline that says “We need to talk about Jon Snow’s butt on Game Of Thrones”, I’m a hundo p gonna click on that link.

-It was a big day in TV trailer news. Here’s the trailer for season 2 of for UnREAL, and the trailer for season 4 of Orange Is The New Black.

-I loved this video on Unrealistic TV Acting With Empty Coffee Cups. Someone on the Extra Hot Great podcast suggested gluing a small bean bag at the bottom of takeout cups to make them look weighted. Get on that, Hollywood!

-Faking that you’re a victim of revenge porn to promote your new album was probably not your best move, YACHT. (Their PR company insists the band didn’t have anything to do with it.)

-Even though I didn’t love Captain America: Civil War as much as everyone else seemed to, it did make me give a crap about Spider-Man. Which is something I never thought would happen again.

-Speaking of superhero movies, here’s an interesting look at why X-Men: Apocalypse is generating so little excitement. The early reviews are basically the embodiment of the shrug emoji.

-I like Candice Patton‘s comments about how some superhero TV audiences don’t want to watch women characters evolve (“I think some audiences today are reticent to actually watch characters, especially women, have an arc”). Unfortunately, I don’t think that has anything to do with why audiences haven’t warmed up to her character on The Flash. She’s just been really poorly written.

-Speaking of The Flash, it’s been in a quality nosedive this season but I’m actually kind of looking forward to tonight’s episode, which is directed by superfan Kevin Smith. He’s already using the press tour for tonight’s ep to push for an Arrow gig.

-Meanwhile, the trailer for Kevin Smith‘s new movie Yoga Hosers is beyond weird.

-Disney just dropped the first trailer for Queen of Katwe, starring Lupita Nyong’o, David Oyelowo, Madina Nalwanga. That’s cool. I totally wanted to cry at my desk today.
