–Jessica Chastain is stunning on the cover of Town & Country — and she’s her usual ballsy, outspoken self in the interview. I’m still not convinced that her character in Molly’s Game is all that great (I can’t wait until reviews from female critics land), but I love when she says “I think the industry is beginning to examine itself and how it has perceived female roles. I’m seeing a lot of really interesting discussions, and I do think it’s changing.” But my favourite part is the end, when the male interviewer notes: “Just when I ask if she would like to have children, Chastain says our time speeding around Manhattan is up, and she bids me a cheery farewell.” Ha!
-Speaking of women who give no f*cks in interviews, this one with Shonda Rhimes is a delight!
-While most male comedians have been noticeably quiet on the Louis C.K. front, I appreciated with his pal Sarah Silverman had to say.
-This is a great piece on how late night isn’t equipped to tackle Louis C.K. because the call is coming from inside the house.
-Now Al Fraken? Dammit.
-The CW had time to announces Black Lightning’s premiere date and their show’s winter return dates, but still no confirmation that they’ve fired Andrew Kreisberg? Hmmmm….
-Whoa: Transparent writers are reportedly exploring a season 5 without Jeffrey Tambor.
–Johnny Depp is front and center in the next Fantastic Beasts? Ugh.
-In ‘not all guys are scum’ news, Drake stopped a concert to scold a guy in the crowd: “Yo, stop that shit. If you don’t stop touching girls I’ll come out there and f**k you up…If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls I’m gonna come out there and f**k you up myself.”
–Gillian Anderson gives good Twitter.
-So does Mark Ruffalo.
-I think it’s kind of cute that Prince Harry and Prince William will cameo as stormtroopers in The Last Jedi.
-This is a really good profile on Cardi B. She’s refreshingly candid about how this sudden music success is freaking her out.
-Looking at the last 20 Sexiest Man Alive picks, anyone seeing a problem here?
-Are The Weeknd and Bella Hadid back on?
-Why yes, I WOULD like to watch George Clooney in an adaptation of Catch-22, thankyouverymuch.
-Is Joss Whedon throwing shade at his own movie? He “liked” several tweets criticizing Justice League’s villain. (I honestly don’t think celebrities realize that we can see what they’ve liked on Twitter or Instagram with just one click. It’s baffling.)
-Congrats to Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale, who just welcomed baby No. 2.
–Jenna Fischer gushing about John Krasinski is a lot. Like, it’s almost too much. I wonder how Emily Blunt felt reading her new book?
-Meanwhile, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt‘s new horror movie A Quiet Place is reportedly a near-silent film.
