–Ezra Miller talks about living on a “polyamorous farm” which, yeah, totally tracks.
-His GQ interview included a goat in labour. I wonder if his publicist had to pay extra for that? (Full disclosure: I couldn’t read the whole thing. Once I got to “I find the presence of cell phones bad for my mood. I can feel cell phones when they’re around” I was worried my retinas would detach from such strenuous eye-rolling…)
–Bryan Tyree Henry is best known for Atlanta but he’s doing the press rounds now for both Widows and If Beale Street Could Talk, which means he’s getting the GQ treatment.
-Congrats to Gabrielle Union who, after going public with her troubles with infertility, welcomed a new baby girl with hubby Dwayne Wade today via surrogate.
-Yay, Max Greenfield will reprise his role as Leo on the Veronica Mars reboot. (I loved his character at the time, but it retrospect it was super creepy that a fully grown cop was dating a teenager.) Patton Oswalt will also join the cast.
–Halsey would like us all to know that she is not dating John Mayer. Understandable.
A magazine dared ask Nicole Kidman about her relationship with her adopted children Connor and Isabella, but she didn’t really say much: “They are adults. They are able to make their own decisions. They have made choices to be Scientologists and as a mother, it’s my job to love them.”
–Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are officially, finally, for real, no take-backsies divorced.
-Wow, Olivia Munn does NOT like being referred to as a “tech girl.”
-Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke says she wanted more actors of colour, but author Stephanie Meyer resisted. One day I would love to see a tell-all about how authors like Meyer and E.L. James totally messed up their film adaptations.
-This might be the best story about working for a Hollywood agent that I have ever read.
-Speaking of great Twitter threads, this one about the dumbest things people have said to celebrities is gold.
-Hollywood has officially run out of reboot ideas, so they’re looking to hit songs for inspiration. Anyone up for watching a Sk8er Boi TV show?
-Maybe love isn’t dead after all. Meg Ryan confirmed her engagement to John Mellencamp.
-In the trailer for the new season of her Scientology show, Leah Remini is all about the receipts.
-It lives! Brooklyn Nine-Nine will make its NBC debut on Jan 10.
-Avengers 4 is rumoured to be 3 hours, and I don’t understand anything Hollywood does anymore.
–Shia LeBeouf and FKA twigs are officially a thing and I want so much more for her….
–Bryan Cranston says he hasn’t seen a script yet for the Breaking Bad movie and is not even sure if he’s in it.
–Julia Roberts’ Amazon show Homecoming has left me a little cold (I’m on episode 6 so I’m withholding judgment), but there’s no doubt it’s a technical marvel. This piece on its visual style and inspirations is fascinating.
–James Franco and Liam Neeson star in the Coen Bros‘ upcoming anthology western The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
