Turns out the celebrity profile is *not* dead but some people very much wish it were. Please enjoy my story about Bradley Cooper, who made a movie of art and truth and beauty that he will just not explain to me. https://t.co/1Dl4wIRLlh

–Taffy Brodesser-Akner once again proves she is one of the best celebrity feature writers working today with her NYT profile on Bradley Cooper. He is CLEARLY not into it, and she explains to him why she needs him to open up, and then the article offers some genuine insight into not just his creative process, but also hers.
-Meanwhile, the song from the A Star Is Born trailer (you know, THE song with the crazy goosebump-inducing, Gaga-wailing chorus), dropped today.
-This first look at Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is the soothing balm the world needed today.
-Speaking of things we could all use after today’s news cycle, The Good Place is back tonight! NBC released the first four eps to critics and the reviews are pretty forking glowing. (Here’s a refresher if you don’t remember how last season ended.)
-The week of surprise baby news continues! Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan reportedly welcomed their first child in August.
–Robert Pattinson and Mia Goth are currently promoting a movie together. Their ex-significant others (FKA twigs and Shia LaBeouf) are now dating. This isn’t awkward at all.
–George Clooney looks really different in this photo. I don’t like it.
-Single Parents (which I really liked) and A Million Little Things (which I really didn’t) premiered to so-so ratings.
–Kanye West is reportedly preparing to drop his third(!) full-length album of the year this weekend.
–Awkwafina and Seth Meyers will host SNL next month.
-In a new interview, Leah Remini talks about her ongoing fight against Scientology and adds, “I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents…Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”
-Here’s the Dark Phoenix trailer starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, and Sophie Turner. This feels like the type of movie that might be OK if you just consider it divorced from the rest of the X-Men films.
