–Lena Dunham is such a weird mix of someone who champions women’s issues yet also someone how never gives up a chance to appear victimized. I just don’t get it. Her latest head-scratcher: “I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”
-I have a LOT of questions about this photo of Justin Bieber.
–Margot Robbie‘s wedding ring reveal is actually pretty great.
–Diego Luna‘s (potentially sexual) obsession with Jabba the Hutt is all kinds of funny.
-This is incredible: starting in 2019, films that aren’t diverse won’t be eligible for the BAFTAs. I wonder what it would take for the Oscars to follow suit?
–Leah Remini says Tom Cruise thinks that she’s “the devil.” She adds, “All Scientologists are taught to believe that people like me are the devil. That we mean them harm.”
-IMAX accidentally uploaded the trailer for The Mummy with most of the sound effects missing. Universal is pulling the clip as fast as it’s being uploaded so click on this right now before it’s gone because it’s PRICELESS (and no doubt 200% more entertaining than the movie will end up being).
-After all this time, someone finally figured out what would make Jennifer Lawrence blush. And it’s lame.
-Meanwhile, I’d love to know which “collectively loathed” celebrities JLaw has all these nicknames for.
-Is it weird that I kinda want to sign up for Shonda Rhimes’ screenwriting course?
-Actually, after reading this interview I’d prefer to sign up for her “how to say words that don’t actually reveal anything” course.
-I actually agreed with most of this article about the joy of TV podcasts but how the hell do you talk about the rise of recap culture without mentioning the late, great Television Without Pity site?!
-I really liked this interview with acting legends Betty White, Don Rickles, Dick Van Dyke, Jerry Lewis, and Cloris Leachman on ageism in Hollywood. My favourite parts are Norman Lloyd on starring in Trainwreck (“Little Amy Schumer — oh God, what a mouth on her. I have never done a film where every line was improvised. I was raised in Shakespearean decorum, and she’s saying ‘F— you’every time I turn around.”) and Leachman on retiring (“Oh, I think about it, but pffffttt,” she says. Meaning what? [She] looks me in the eye: “It means ‘f— you,’ ” she says with a smile.)
-The AirBnB estate that Mariah Carey is staying in during the holidays is really underwhelming considering the $22 million price tag. Imma need some solid gold bathtubs for that kind of money.
-I’m actually surprised it took Chris Pratt this long to guest on wife Anna Faris’ sitcom.
-2016 has been a pretty shitty year for everyone — except Disney.
-The Flash stars Tom Cavanagh and Carlos Valdes made a very cute holiday video.
-There’s something coming out called The Emoji Movie so humanity should probably just give up now…
