–Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s cover profile in Vanity Fair makes him seem even nicer than you thought — which shouldn’t be possible.
-Royal dramaz! A new report claims that the drama-filled run-up to Meghan Markle‘s wedding, Kate Middleton was left in tears after an argument over Princess Charlotte’s dress.
-I kind of like that Taylor Swift is with someone who refuses to talk about her in the press. When pressed about her in his GQ profile, Joe Alwyn responded “Someone’s private life is, by definition, private. No one is obliged to share their personal life.” Bad for gossip, but good for her.
-It’s starting to make more and more sense why Kim Cattrall didn’t want to do a third Sex and the City movie — Samantha’s main storyline reportedly revolved around Miranda’s 14-year-old son Brady lusting after her. Also, Mr. Big was supposedly going to die of a heart attack at the beginning of the movie, making it more about Carrie’s grief than the relationship between the four women. All in all, it sounds like she was smart to bow out, even if it turned her into the bad guy in the press.

–Ethan Hawke gave a rousing speech at the Gotham Awards. “We are living in a time period where the environment, education, racial equality … they are being criminally disregarded. It’s a real problem. It’s unacceptable.”
-Green Book flopped hard at the box office. I wonder what that will do to its Oscar buzz?
-Yeah ok, I laughed at the red band trailer for What Men Want.
