-This doesn’t look like Jennifer Lawrence at all to me, for some reason.
–Sarah Drew described the “beautiful” support she got from Grey’s costars Kelly McCreary, Caterina Scorsone and Chandra Wilson after her firing. Seems like some pointed exclusions there…
–Heidi Klum says she ignored Drake’s text when he asked her out.
-It’s been a while since I’ve read a celebrity interview that fails on every single level, but this THR one with Norm Macdonald is a doozy. Among the many, many misses, he gives his thoughts on #MeToo (“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit … that Chris Hardwick guy, I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there”) and talks about his friends who have been caught up in controversies (“Roseanne was so broken up [after her show was cancelled] that I got Louis [C.K.] to call her, even though Roseanne was very hard on Louis before that. But she was just so broken and just crying constantly. There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”)
-Netflix execs won’t answer questions about a possible Louis C.K. return. Sometimes the worst answer is a non-answer.
-CBS stars are speaking out against Les Moonves. Gayle King slammed CBS for not releasing the results of their investigation, James Corden opened the Late Late Show by saying “It’s been a very difficult day here at CBS, but that pales in comparison to how difficult it must be for the many women who are coming forward”, while Stephen Colbert said “Les Moonves is gone—for at least nine months until he does a set at the Comedy Cellar.”
–Kit Harrison talked about how great married life is at TIFF last night.
-I saw Nicole Kidman‘s new movie Destroyer last night (costarring Sebastian Stan and Tatiana Maslany) and I was blown away by her performance. Not only is she unrecognizable, the things she does with her walk/physicality were amazing. Not surprisingly, she went so deep into character that she says hubby Keith Urban “couldn’t wait for the thing to be over.”
-Speaking of TIFF movies, the ones that seem to be getting the best buzz so far are Julia Roberts‘ Ben Is Back, Barry Jenkins‘ If Beale Street Could Talk, The Hate U Give, A Star Is Born, and Jonah Hill‘s directorial debut Mid90s (though female critics seem to have a different take on that one).
-People are also loving Paul Dano’s directorial debut Wildlife, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Carrie Mulligan.
