-I like that Keira Knightley spends so much time in her Harper’s Bazaar cover story talking about how expensive child care is for the average working mother and how paternity leave should be extended. Unexpected but awesome.

Meghan Markle was photographed for the first time since the Prince Harry romance was revealed. Dammit, I wanted to snap the first shot the next time Suits tapes next to my office. I was hoping to cake up!

-Here are some photos of 26-year-old Jennifer Lawrence kissing her 47-year-old boyfriend to get your weekend off to an icky start.

-I’m glad there’s backlash from Johnny Depp being in the Fantastic Beasts movies. I still don’t know how JK Rowling let this happen. She’s always had a pretty tight grip on the films.

Nicole Kidman Talks “Unconditional Love” for Isabella and Connor Cruise


-In a new interview with Town & Country, Nicole Kidman opened up about her “unconditional love” for her adopted children Isabella and Connor Cruise, saying of her new movie Lion “This movie is a love letter to my children.” Still no word on if she actually still sees them, though.

-Also, Nicole camps like I do (by that, I mean she gives up halfway through upon realizing she could just sleep in a goddamn bed instead).

Lena Dunham released a Hillary Clinton PSA intended to double as a parody of empty celebrity activism. Okay.
