Chris Evans Reaches Peak Captain America in Esquire


Chris Evans made the entire internet swoon today with his new Esquire cover story.  He talks about how his Marvel contract is done after the next two Avengers movies, and about being outspoken against Trump (“Look, I’m in a business where you’ve got to sell tickets. But, my God, I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror if I felt strongly about something and didn’t speak up… If I state my case and people don’t want to go see my movies as a result, I’m okay with that”). He also jumps out of a plane with the interviewer.

Ewan McGregor said”I’m f*cking proud to be a woke bae!” (right after someone explained to him what that meant).

Ben Affleck announced last night in a Facebook post that he just got out of rehab. Sources say he checked in immediately after the Oscars and it was his own decision, not prompted by any specific incident.

Kim Kardashian West believes the robbers who attacked her in Paris were monitoring her social media usage. Well, yeah.

Mandy Patinkin reportedly “burst into tears” watching Jake Gyllenhaal on Broadway.

-Nicole sent me this video last night of Prince William dancing at a club with the text “we have the same top moves.” She’s not wrong.

-Cleanse your palate with this video of Isabelle Huppert dancing. (I love how she has no time for that JT song tho.)

-How to Get Away With Murder’s Aja Naomi King might be dating co-star Alfred Enoch? I ship it.

-Oh god. On the anniversary of the Fappening, more alleged intimate photos of actresses are being circulated online, and this time Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried are among the targets.

Sarah Paulson, stylist Karla Welch and Ruth Negga look amazeballs on the cover of THR.

Leighton Meester knows she would bring her Blair Waldorf-style A game and crush it on The Bachelor. “If you can’t win The Bachelor, what’s wrong with you?”

-Former SNL star Noël Wells has some harsh words for the show’s “comedy dinosaurs.”

-I’m always so fascinated by who runs celebrity Twitter accounts. Is it the stars themselves, or do they outsource it? With Adele, we can be sure it’s the latter because her managers have taken away her access. “I’m not allowed to access my own Twitter because I’m quite mouthy and I say the wrong thing a lot of the time.”

Charlie Hunnam says he is “profoundly germophobic” but he has a good reason for it — blindness caused by dogs.

The Good Fight will return for a second season on  CBS All Access. I like it but not enough to go searching for downloads so I’m am so, so glad it airs like a regular TV show here in Canada.

-Also getting a second season is FX’s Legion. I’m on the fence about that one. It sure is pretty but I don’t know if there’s a lot of there there.

-We’re getting a Rihanna–Adam Driver musical drama? OK THEN!

Kelly Clarkson has a giant mounted bear in her living room like the gd boss that she is.

-The season finale for This Is Us aired last night and it was…not good. Like, really not good. This is what happens when you build your show around a gimmick (and when you already delivered your best emotional wallop two episodes ago). It’s no surprise producers are already promising a “lighter” season two.

-Also, if this is how Jack dies I’m going to scream.

American Gods’ first trailer takes us into Neil Gaiman‘s trippy world.

Oprah fights for justice for her mother in the first trailer for HBO’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I wasn’t sure how they’d be able to adapt that book but this looks GOOD.
