-I love how Matthew McConaughey keeps talking and posting about the need to wear a mask. Whether he’s making silly videos or showing off his Spanish, he’s committed to the cause. I wonder if it will catch on more now that Los Angeles is requiring masks when outside, which means we’re about to see a whole lot more celebs wearing them.
–Beyoncé shared a new video of the mobile Covid-19 testing sites she helped set up with her mother in their hometown of Houston.
-This Twitter thread of mundane celebrity encounters is an unexpected delight on a gloomy day. When I first moved to Toronto, I once saw Joshua Jackson coming towards me on the sidewalk and I literally stopped in the middle of his path to gawk at him. He smiled and walked around me while I blushed myself to death. Good times!
-The thread has since spun off to fake Diane Keaton sightings, which is equally delightful.
-Some gossip tidbits from André Leon Talley’s memoir are starting to roll in as the publication date nears.

-I guess I wasn’t the only one who liked it. Last night’s finale hits 5-season highs in the ratings.
–Ellen Degeneres is reportedly sad that everyone thinks she’s mean. There’s a really easy solution to this: be nicer.
-Do I have to know who all these Southern Charm people who are causing drama are? Guys, I’m just so tired.
-Tragic: Melissa Etheridge’s 21-year-old son has died following an opioid addiction.
-If you ever want to feel bad about humanity, just follow superhero fandom chatter. Earlier this week, it was Batman fans getting angry at Robert Pattinson for not working out while he’s on a break from filming, and now the CW released a poster for their new Superman show on Twitter and the replies are a garbage fire.
-Speaking of Superman, the CW has pushed the return of most shows to January (except Supernatural, which will air its final episodes this fall.) We’re going to be hit with an intense TV dry spell very soon.
–Margo Martindale breaking into tears when talking about her character on The Americans made me feel things. Uncool, man.
–John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer talked about filming their first kiss on The Office, and said they were forbidden to talk or text before shooting it so that when they saw each other on set it would be the first time in a while.
-Normal People’s on-set intimacy coordinator talks about how she coached the actors through those very revealing scenes.
-The Good Fight has been renewed. Bless.
–Matt Damon says his oldest daughter, who is in college in NYC, got covid early on but has recovered.
-A bunch of celebrities mocked the “Imagine” video with a rendition of “Eat It.”
–Snoop Dogg sitting in is car listening to the Frozen soundtrack is a mood.
