-I had a lot of guesses about who was going to land the cover of September Vogue. Kendall effing Jenner was not at the top of my list.
-Also serving up cover: Gina Rodriguez on Health.
-In a new interview, Amy Schumer talks about Twitter hate and maintaining her confidence. “Just spend shorter amounts of time thinking you’re the ugliest person in the world.”
–Hugh Jackman posted a photo of him looking really old, and news outlets didn’t get that he was wearing makeup for a movie.
-What the hell? Criminal Minds’ star Thomas Gibson was suspended after kicking a writer-producer. This is the second time he’s had a physical altercation with a producer on this set. Man, the Dharma & Greg folks have not aged well.
-More stories about how Vin Diesel isn’t exactly a gem continue to surface.
-This article about what it means to be a difficult actor versus a difficult actress is worth your time.
-Speaking of difficult actors, here’s an interesting read on how Jared Leto has ruined method acting. It’s “become more about ego and marketing than good performances.” (On the plus side, maybe actors will stop talking about their “craft” and “process” in interviews.)
–Leslie. Jones. Has. Landed. In. Rio.
-The producers of the all-female Oceans Eleven reboot are reportedly worried about a Ghostbusters-type backlash. Funny how this has been the summer of sequel flops and no one’s hand-wringing about those.
-The staff of a Toronto hospital staff sang ‘Courage’ in a tribute to Gord Downie. No, YOU’RE crying!
-Us Weekly claims that Taylor Kinney is already trying to crawl back to Lady Gaga.
-When Adele invited a fan up on stage with her, she had no idea that fan was a Grammy-nominated artist.
–Hugh Grant has a pretty laid back attitude about being fat-shamed recently by British tabloids: “They weren’t wrong. I looked shocking. It was awful.”
-Meanwhile, Hugh and Meryl Streep participated in a rather charming AMA on Reddit.
–Jonah Hill says he doubts the 23 Jump Street-Men in Black crossover movie will get made. Prayer works!
–Jared Padalecki wants you all to know that he was not actually the Trump Tower climber.
-I tend to not like white dresses but Amal Clooney‘s flapper-inspired one is working for her.
-This is a long but great read on TV’s current drama slump. “An increasing number of not-great dramas with a prestige-y sheen are piling onto a field that was already standing-room only.”
-The fact that Emmy season means Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are now doing a bunch of joint interviews/photo shoots makes me giddy.
-The TCAs saved my favourite network for last. Lots of goodies from The CW dropped today, including that a character on one of the superhero shows will come out, Dolph Lundgren will star as Arrow’s villain during their last year of flashbacks, and The Flash and Supergirl are planning a musical crossover that may include Arrow and Legends cast members. Amell has already bowed out, but if we can get a song between Victor Garber, Jesse L Martin, John Barrowman and the Glee alums, I’ll be happy. Remember when Grant Gustin did “Smooth Criminal” and made us all forget that we were supposed to hate his character?
–Rachel Weisz is suffering an identity crisis in the Complete Unknown trailer.
