Anne Hathaway Talks Ageism in Hollywood

Anne Hathaway ageism

-What’s happening with Anne Hathaway’s Tatler cover photo? Is it too much contouring? Photoshop? In any case, she talks about fighting for parts as she gets older (“It makes me sad that the world tells me my skin is somehow less valuable than it used to be, but I don’t listen and I don’t agree”), and the best advice Michael Caine ever gave her (“Separate bathrooms. When he told me that, I laughed and he looked at me and said, ‘I’m serious, it’s such an important part of the marriage.'”)

-Speaking of ageing in Hollywood, in a new interview with Allure, Reese Witherspoon says: “I didn’t have the same things to say [at 25]. I’m 43 and I’ve had a whole bunch of experiences, and I can speak with a thoughtfulness about the changes I’d like to see in the world, and…I just feel like I earned that gray hair and my fine lines. I like ’em. I so prefer 43 to 25.”

-I love Sweet Home Alabama, but I do not want a sequel.

Jason Mamoa shaved off his beard for charity. He can still get it tho.

Kim Kardashian explained how her weird-looking bathroom sinks actually work. They were designed by Kanye West, which explains a lot.

-Not surprisingly, Wendy Williams husband has been relieved of his exec producer duties on her show.

Gina Rodriguez stars in the Netflix original movie Someone Great, which drops today, and the reviews are great.

-The blooper reel for Netflix’s Sex Education features Gillian Anderson swearing, which is the best kind of swearing.

-The #FreeBritney hashtag keeps trending. I really hope this is a case of fan overreaction and she’s ok.

-Shocking report: Kristin Cavallari says there were fake storylines on The Hills. “Most of my stuff wasn’t real.”

-A pop culture writer on Twitter has been crusading against TV shows/movies in which the characters are clearly holding empty coffee cups, and I love when actors get in on the action.

-The new Hobbs and Shaw trailer showcases Idris Elba so I’m here for it.

Sebastian Stan arrives at his cousins’ house and proceeds to shakes things up in the We Have Always Lived In The Castle trailer.c

Rihanna Gets Colourful on Harper’s Bazaar Cover

Rihanna Harper’s Bazaar

Rihanna looks amazing in Chanel, Dior and Givenchy Haute Couture in her new Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. I cannot stop looking at these photos.

-Speaking of amazing photo shoots, Keiynan Lonsdale in Vogue took my breath away.

-Time’s 100 most influential people issue is here, which features Taylor Swift (with a tribute written by Shawn Mendes), Sandra Oh (with a tribute written by Shonda Rhimes), Dwayne Johnson (with a tribute written by Gal Gadot), Regina King (with a tribute written by Voila Davis), Brie Larson (with a tribute written by Tessa Thompson), Lady Gaga (with a tribute written by Celine Dion), Emilia Clarke (with a tribute written by Emma Thompson) and more.

Lori Loughlin‘s camp took her sob story to People. Because of course.

Beyonce shocked everyone by dropping a surprise live album to coincide with her new Netflix documentary, ensuring that no one in the entire world did any work today.

-Look, I’m fully aware that this entire article was likely ghost-written by her PR team, but I’m still here for all the Jennifer Garner comeback pieces.

Madonna‘s new single “Medellin” is here. It took a few listens but now I dig it.

Britney Spears‘ mother is not doing much to reassure us that her daughter is fine. She posted about how “the battle is not over” and then liked posts about Britney being put in a mental care facility against her will.  What’s happening??

-Ugh, when asked about Rey’s parents, J.J. Abrams said Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will show us “there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.” This is why I’m concerned with Abrams regaining control. He adores his mystery boxes, but the reason that The Last Jedi was so powerful is because Rian Johnson introduced the notion that anyone could be a Jedi — even if you’re parents are nobody. It opened up the Force (kind of like the Buffy finale opened up slayerhood). Why destroy that, especially in the final chapter of a trilogy that established it?

-Huzzah! Emma Thompson and Paul Rudd will host SNL this season.

Louis Tomlinson broke his silence following his sister’s sudden death to thank fans for their support.

-I really liked actor John Bradley’s take on Sam Tarly’s scenes in the Game of Thrones premiere. Sam is not only one of the purest characters, he’s often also the audience surrogate. So if Sam doesn’t like Dany, that doesn’t bode well for her.

-Meanwhile, the Gay of Thrones recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness continue to be the most entertaining thing about the show.

-I love The Cut editors’ review of Adam Driver’s new Broadway play based on his hotness, which includes lines like “it’s a really immense, thigh-forward experience” and “I was so flustered by his quads that at one point I spilled all of the contents of my purse on the floor.”

-Dead to Me, Netflix’s new show starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, is getting good reviews.

-Oof. The final trailer for X Men: Dark Phoenix does nothing to convince me that this film won’t be a mess.

Eva Mendes Talks Marriage, Motherhood

Eva Mendes Ryan Gosling Kids

-In her new interview with Women’s Health, Eva Mendes says she hadn’t really considered motherhood until she met Ryan Gosling. “It was the furthest thing from my mind. Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”

Jimmy Kimmel organized a Game of Thrones hotline to help confused fans — with the show’s stars manning the phones.

Angelina Jolie is Pitt-less. She officially dropped her ex’s last name.

-Meanwhile, Kit Harrington is not here for any GoT hot takes. “Whatever critic spends half an hour writing about this season and makes their [negative] judgement on it, in my head they can go f*ck themselves.”

-Fleabag/Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is reportedly polishing up the new Bond script — at Daniel Craig’s request. Smart guy, that Dan.

Ariana Grande had a lucrative weekend. She was reportedly paid $8 million to perform at Coachella.

-I don’t know how it took this long for Warner Bros to start having reservations about Johnny Depp, but I’m here for it.

-Amazon has lured John Cusack to the small screen for their adaptation of the Gillian Flynn thriller Utopia.

-Netflix’s ratings claims should always be met with side-eye, but they say the brotastic film Triple Frontier was viewed by 52 million households in first month. On the TV side, it says Umbrella Academy was watched by 45 million households in its first month.

Russell Crowe is unrecognizable as Roger Ailes in The Loudest Voice teaser.

-Leaked Avengers: Endgame footage has hit the internet and people are really bummed out about it.

-Meanwhile, the final trailer reviews the origins of all the heroes and is sure to hit you square in the heart guts.
