Angelina Jolie’s Crush on Michelle Pfeiffer

-I am very much here for this clip of Michelle Pfeiffer asking Angelina Jolie ‘Was I your teen crush?” and Jolie responding “Actually…yeah definitely…when you sang ‘Cool Rider’ you were very hot. And Scarface.” Same, girl.

-Every bit of this Antonio Banderas profile in GQ is great, but the part that’s especially great is when he’s asked a simple question about voicing animated characters and then it turns into a thoughtful answer on how Hollywood uses race to construct its villains.

-I wish Gwendoline Christie wore this dress to the Emmys instead of that Jesus-y robe thing. This one has me 🤤

-The reviews are in and though some critics question the film’s timing and message, everyone seems to agree that Joaquin Phoenix delivers an outstanding performance in Joker. (I do find it interesting that a lot of the negative reviews are coming from female critics.)

-Whoa, Jimmy Kimmel caught Joaquin Phoenix completely off guard last night when the actor was talking about what a light, happy set Joker was and Kimmel said “It’s interesting that you say that because Todd [Phillips] sent an outtake reel” and then proceeded to show a clip of Phoenix angrily muttering to cinematographer Lawrence Sher: “The constant whispering, just shut the f**k up, dude. I’m trying to, like, find something real. I know you started the f**king Cher thing, Larry, f**king making fun of me, like I’m a f**king diva. It’s not even an insult. Cher, really? Singer, actor, dancer, fashion icon? How is that a f**king insult? F**k it, I can’t do this” before walking off the set. The show cut back to a cringing, visibly uncomfortable Phoenix. “This is so embarrassing. Yeah look, sometimes movies get intense because you’re a lot of people in a small space and you’re trying to find something so you can feel intense. But that was supposed to be private. I’m a little embarrassed. I’m sorry about that. I’m sorry you guys had to see that…There’s no excuse for that. You shouldn’t talk to people [like that]…My publicist will issue a formal statement tomorrow. Can we move on?” Whew lordy, watching temperamental dudes to get called out for crap that women could never get away with is like my Super Bowl!

-On a similar note, I appreciate all the shitty Todd Phillips’ quotes and clips that are surfacing.

-I can’t stop watching videos of Hailey Beiber trying to avoid being snapped walking down the aisle by photographers in helicopters above by hiding under a tent carried slowly to the ceremony.

-Despite signing a new deal with Amazon, Phoebe Waller-Bridge says she has no immediate plans to bring back Fleabag. “I like the idea of coming back to her, well me, when I’m 50. Because I feel like she would have had more life then, and god knows what she would’ve gotten up to. Seeing a character like that in a later stage of life is exciting but I think for now, she’s been through enough. We gotta let her go.” Thank gawd.

-The story about the Canadian woman who went hiking and was stalked by a cougar until she scared it off with Metallica has hit the late night talk show circuit.

-This video of Lilly Singh teaching Americans Canadian/Toronto slang is all kinds of perfect.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is shilling for Colgate (you get that toothpaste money, girl) and talking about the possibility of a Buffy reboot: “You know, I think ultimately you realize that you tell a story at the time, and then you close that chapter. For me, I think it’s best because I’m at a different point in my life than I was when I told that story. So, any incarnation that I did now would be different anyways? So, I’m not sure if they totally work together.”

Will Smith just dropped a limited-edition clothing line inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 1993 me would be very excited about this. 2019 me is like “huh.”

-This Canadian 90s pop culture quiz brought back so many memories.

Ben Barnes has been cast as the Darkling in Netflix’s adaptation of Shadow and Bone. I loved those books and this works for me.

Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam and Hugh Grant navigate the London drug trade in the trailer for Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen.
