–Sofia Vergara stripped down for Women’s Health’s Naked Issue — and looks amazing. She said, “Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body. It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine.”
-Whoa – Vanity Fair just clapped back at Angelina Jolie. Her lawyers tried to get them to print a retraction to the part of her cover story which describes the cruel casting process of her new movie, which Jolie later claimed they took out of context. VF responded with the exact damaging quote, which they confirmed the reporter had captured on not one, but two recording devices. For someone who’s usually so on top of it, this is a major misstep for her.
-I don’t watch the Real Housewives of NYC but everyone on my Twitter TL has lots of opinions about LuAnn’s divorce.
-I haven’t had a chance to read all of Aziz Anzari’s GQ profile, though I did read the part about him quitting the internet.
–Lisa Bonet surprised Jason Momoa on the set of AquaMan for his birthday. God, I love looking at these two.
-Here’s an interesting look at why Arcade Fire’s latest album has gotten such a mediocre response.
–Selena Gomez calls The Weeknd her “best friend” in her InStyle cover interview.
–Justin Bieber wrote a very, very long apology to fans for cutting his tour short. My fave part: “THIS MESSAGE IS IS VERY GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUT ITS FROM THE HEART. BUT I THINK THERES SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IMPERFECTIONS!!”
-Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later starts streaming tomorrow (just in time for the long weekend!), and the reviews are great.
–Natalie Portman‘s sci-fi film Annihilation just got a 2018 release date. I’m a little concerned that’s it’ll be in the wasteland that is February, but it costars Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Oscar Isaac so I’m still here for it.
-It was NBC’s turn at the TCAs today. They confirmed that they’ve already picked up the Will & Grace reboot for a second season even though the first hasn’t aired yet, announced that Tina Fey will be starring in seven episodes of the next season of Great News, touted a plan to foster female directors in their quest for gender parity (sounds nice, but I want to know more about how they’ll implement it), the president of the network threw out some incredibly impressive rating numbers (26 million people watch This Is Us per episode on all platforms?! And they claim they’re able to monetize digital?!), and for some reason they still seem to think that the mystery of Jack’s death is why everyone watches This Is Us.
-Speaking of the TCAs, here’s a recap of yesterday’s Everwood reunion. *sob*
–Jessica Chastain called out CBS over the lack of female leads in new fall series.
–Iwan Rheon’s appearance on Kimmel reminded me of his character on Misfits instead of his character on Game of Thrones, which can only be a good thing.
-Here’s Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson in the Goodbye Christopher Robin trailer. If this is based on the true origin story of Winnie the Pooh, then that national heritage commercial may have led us astray…
