–Reese Witherspoon is looking hella festive today.
-This video of an old dude trying to cop a feel of Mel B during The X Factor is so bad. Especially gross is Simon Cowell‘s immediate attempts to dismiss it.
-I keep forgetting/repressing the fact that Billy Crudup and Naomi Watts are together.
–Joshua Jackson talked about why he didn’t hesitate to protest family separation at the US border: “Canadians should be just as outraged.” God damn, Pacey grew up so good!
-Proof that the Star Wars fandom has been toxic for a long time: actor Ahmed Best says he considered suicide over the backlash and death threats he got over his character, Jar Jar Binks.
-I don’t even read comic books and this Batman wedding stuff is kind of breaking my heart.
–Yvette Nicole Brown says she is just “filling in” for Chris Hardwick at Comic-Con, not “jockeying” for his job. Take it!
-Aww, this bums me out: My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Nia Vardalos and Felicity/Cougar Town’s Ian Gomez have filed for divorce after 23 years of marriage.
-An advertising watchdog found 51 examples of false advertising on GOOP’s website.
-Of all the people who could have defended Morgan Freeman following accusations of sexual harassment made against him by eight women, I didn’t think it would be Suzanne Somers. She said “Well, this probably won’t be real popular, but I think that women…I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like, of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman’s a big flirt. I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair. He’ll like a lot of things…I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.” Ugh.
-I like that David Foster‘s kids seem to be having fun with his engagement to the much younger Katherine McPhee.
-The video at the bottom of this article of the Set It Up couple setting up people on first dates is so adorable.
-Speaking of Set It Up, I watched it a friend’s house last weekend and couldn’t figure out why it looked so weird. It’s cause her TV has motion smoothing turned on. This makes so much sense now…
-I really enjoyed this interview with Dietland’s Marti Noxon, in which she talks about getting into “toe-to-toe screaming matches” with Sharp Objects director Jean-Marc Vallée, and all the flack she took for Buffy season six. I love that she calls Xander the embodiment of “impotent male anger.” I never realized what a gross character he was until I did a rewatch years later.
-I’m not exactly a crafty person, but man NBC’s Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman looks like a ton of fun. Now that The Handmaid’s Tale is wrapping up, this is about as heavy as I want my summer TV to get.
-I kinda want to see Skyscraper for some reason? I blame Neve Campbell’s presence.
