–Kristen Stewart opens up about girlfriend Alicia Cargile in her Elle UK cover story, saying “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.'” She also talks about the different reception she gets when dating a woman: “When I was dating a guy…we were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl.” (Also, I love the cover.)

-Also, this interview with the girl who plays Barb is great. #WeAreAllBarb
-The Flash actors are awash in racial missteps this week. First it was Grant Gustin, and now Ezra Miller created a “scene” about Darren Wilson. Sounds like it was well-intentioned but a bit tone-deaf.
-Even though I have no idea who this fashion YouTuber even is, I got lost in the #savemarinajoyce web last night. Twitter has basically constructed a giant yarn wall to figure this thing out.

Meanwhile, Amy Schumer has already responded to her shout-out in the trailer, saying she’d love Lorelai and isn’t that into water sports.
