-I always love Variety’s Actors on Actors pairings. This year’s covers feature Claire Foy and Benedict Cumberbatch, Issa Rae and Michael B JordanLaura Dern and Angela Bassett, and more.

-Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams has asked for his ex-wife’s request for increased child support, already at $50,695 per month, to be denied.

-Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty talked about their favorite parts of the royal wedding. “I met four different Harrys, which was really cool.”

-Kim Kardashian admits she and Kanye West had words after he made that slavery comment. “Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah. That’s not stuff we put on social media.” (It is, however, the stuff he put on his new album.)

-This is some bullshit: Kelly Marie Tran  erased all of her Instagram posts following months of harassment by whiny Star Wars crybabies. How can anyone be mean to her?! She is a literal ball of sunshine! She’s like a rare unicorn I want to pet! Fanboys are the goddamn worst.

-The news about Kate Spade is gutting. Celebrities are paying tribute to her on Twitter.

-ABC’s Roseanne spinoff is inching closer to reality. Sources say that the network is knee-deep in talks with exec producers for a new incarnation of the multicamera comedy, and its likely the entire cast – sans star Roseanne Barr – and creative team and crew would return. But since Barr created the character, there’s a good chance she’ll still get paid if they go ahead with a spinoff. They should just scrap the whole concept and bring everyone back with an entirely new premise.

-Variety is hosting a drama TV writers panel that features zero women, and is getting dragged accordingly.

-George Clooney, when asked which movie had the biggest impact on his craft, said “It’s really easy to pick: Batman & Robin. That’s not a joke. Up until that moment, I was an actor only concerned with finding work. After the failure of that film creatively, I understood that I needed to take control of the films I made.”

-The first reviews for Jurassic World are in, and they are decidedly mixed.

-This story about Harold Ramis and Amy Heckerling‘s secret daughter is fascinating.

-16 female critics and authors weigh in on Hollywood’s new trend of gender-flipping blockbusters and whether it’s a triumph for diversity or a cynical attempt to squeeze more money out of old franchises.

-Reese Witherspoon is in talks for Legally Blonde 3, and Stephen Colbert has already figured out the best movie premise.

-I’m scared of horror movies and nothing could possibly convince me to watch Hotel Artemis … [sees Sterling K Brown in a towel]…ok, where do I buy tickets?

-Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges this morning in New York.

-Katherine Heigl documented her TV trailer makeover, which may be the most Katherine Heigl-ish thing I’ve ever seen.
