–Gwyneth Paltrow is having quite a week for visuals, from her tragic Golden Globes dress to her vagina Goop poster, and now her liquid Tom Ford breast plate on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. In the interview, she talks about befriending ex Chris Martin’s gf Dakota Johnson (“I love her,” Paltrow says. “I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her”), staying friends with exes (“I’m friendly with Brad Pitt. I don’t have any really bad blood”), and her reaction to stumbling across her old films (“I vom. I gag. I hate it”). Hilariously, she also talks about how Proof is the last non-Marvel movie she’s starred in — forgetting that she did Country Strong five years after Proof.
-This is how Joaquin Phoenix chose to answer a polite, innocuous question backstage at the Golden Globes about his Joker process. Eff this guy.
-Congrats to Chloe Sevigny, who is expecting her first child.
–Meghan Markle and Prince Harry talked about their “beautiful” Vancouver Island holiday getaway with Archie.
–Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial in New York City began this week, and he’s already getting in trouble with the judge for his constant texting. “Is this really the way you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life by texting in violation of an order?”
-This Keira Knightley impression is very, very good.
–Chris Hemsworth has donated $1 million to fight the Australian bushfires.
–James Cameron unveiled some new art images for Avatar 2. Seriously, does ANYBODY still care about this franchise? I know the first movie broke box office records but it left zero cultural footprint. When’s the last time you heard anyone quote Avatar? Can you name any of the characters?
–Rob Lowe says Netflix told him that Holiday in the Wild was a bigger hit than The Irishmen, which is hilarious if true.
-This is my least fave scene in A Marriage Story but I get why that one line resonates.
-The CW renewed all 13 of its current series: All American, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Charmed, Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, In The Dark, Legacies, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Roswell, New Mexico and Supergirl, plus the yet-to-debut Katy Keene. I’m so glad Legends eked out another season! (My guess is it will be the last one, along with The Flash and Supergirl). The CW’s lucrative Netflix deal expires this year, so rookie shows Batwoman and Nancy Drew will now move to HBO Max and CBS All Access, respectively.
-Oh god, there is a LOT of new TV shows to consume this year and I’m not ready.
-A teenager facing an unintended pregnancy and her cousin embark across state lines to get an abortion in the trailer for Never Rarely Sometimes Always.
