-Congrats to The Americans costars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, who just welcomed their first child together.
-I was on vacation last week so I was not following the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard drama too closely, but every time I looked at Twitter I was disheartened by all the Amber bashing. We don’t know what really happened, but the knee-jerk reaction of the internet to jump to a male star’s defense is weird (maybe because my gut instinct is to always give the person with bruises on her face the benefit of the doubt?). She did everything an abused woman is encouraged to do — and yet the hate is strong.
-In today’s ‘I don’t know how they’re friends’ edition: Charlize Theron co-hosted Emily Blunt’s baby shower.
-Shocking report: Matt LeBlanc reportedly doesn’t make a very good Top Gear host.
-Another shocking report: Chelsea Handler may not be the easiest person to work for.
–George and Amal Clooney met Pope Francis at the Vatican because they’re fancy like that.
-‘Which costar would you ask to bail you out if arrested?’ is a really great interview question.
–BJ Novak says Mindy Kalling used to lie to him constantly on the set of The Office just for fun. I knew I liked her.
–Aisha Tyler’s latest Guy on Girl podcast with Viola Davis is fantastic!
-I was really looking forward to seeing John Carney’s new movie Sing Street because I adore Once and Begin Again, but now I’m glad I haven’t gotten around to it yet after reading his comments slamming Keira Knightley. Why is he even bringing her up in interviews? They haven’t worked together for three years. Also, I saw the TIFF premiere of Begin Again with the cast/director Q&A following the film, and Adam Levine as “unpretentious” and Keira as the diva was NOT the impression I was left with.
-Oh jeez. Jesse Eisenberg just confirmed that he’ll play Lex Luthor in another movie.
-I don’t watch Silicon Valley, but I’ve got no problem watching T.J. Miller hurl insults for nearly five minutes straight.
-Congrats to Topher Grace, who married Ashley Hinshaw in a private ceremony yesterday. Wait, isn’t that the girl from True Blood?
–John Oliver‘s “how is this not a thing?” segment is fantastic. Now I need a universal safe word for getting out of small talk, bread pants, and a way to wink without looking like you’re proposing a threesome.
–Dan Aykroyd loves the new Ghostbusters reboot, which is high praise seeing as the idea for Ghostbusters came from him and he remains the one who’s been trying to keep the franchise alive the hardest all this time.
-I love how Adele called people out for filming her in concert by saying “I’m really here in real life. You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera.”
-The trailer for the Netflix original movie The Fundamentals Of Caring has landed — and it looks great. Paul Rudd, Selena Gomez and Jennifer “Elizabeth Bennet” Ehle. Here for it!
