Chris Pratt Is Keeping It Real

Chris Pratt wrote a Facebook post about how normal his life is.

-Speaking of notes that made me laugh,  Damon Lindelof’letter to critics that he included with The Leftovers screeners is hilarious. He drops references to Joss Whedon and Fleabag, he avoids telling critics how to do their jobs, and then he wraps it up by lightly shading Matthew Weiner.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly speaking again — but only about the kids.

Ryan Gosling explains why he laughed when La La Land had the Best Picture Oscar taken away. “I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head. And then I just heard Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”

-The new NYT profile on John Mayer is titled “John Mayer Knows He Messed Up. He Wants Another Chance.” Well, he’s a rich white dude so I’m guessing he’s got at least another dozen coming…

Kate Winslet opened up about being bullied as a child: “They “teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard. Laughed at me.”

-Wait, the Love Actually reunion will air tomorrow in the UK?! I wonder if I can book a boardroom for when this thing hits the web so I can squee over it in peace?

David Boreanaz has already signed on to his next TV role. After eight years on Buffy/Angel, and then 12 on Bones maybe he should just sleep for a bit?

-The new Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why, exec produced by Selena Gomez, is getting glowing reviews.

-This is a good piece on how Hollywood is getting way too much credit for tiny gestures towards LGBT inclusivity.

-Remember Maggie Rogers, the NYU music student who blew Pharrell Williams away with her demo? Now she’s killing it on James Corden’s show and getting New Yorker profiles. Put her new EP in your ear holes right now!

-Oh god, the full trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale is devastating. This is going to be a hard watch given the current climate.

-The red band trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri might be the best trailer I’ve seen in a long, long time. I think I fell a little bit in love with Frances McDormand just watching it. (I was already in love with Sam Rockwell. Obviously.)
