Chris Evans Laughs Off Dick Pic

Chris Evans recovered from his accidental dick pic reveal nicely by using the attention for good and urging people to vote.  He also addressed it in an interview with Tamron Hall today, saying “That’s called turning a frown upside down, Tamron. It was an interesting weekend. Full of lessons learned. A lot of teachable moments. Things happen and it’s embarrassing. You have to roll with the punches. I will say I have some pretty fantastic fans that came to my support.” I still think there’s a conversation to be had about whether a female celeb could survive an incident like this as unscathed as he did, but still, I’m glad he’s dealing with it with grace.

Cardi B is taking her “WAP” and walking away. She filed for divorce from husband Offset at a courthouse in Atlanta.

Madonna is set to co-write and direct her own biopic. Diablo Cody will co-write the script. (Interesting that her tweet about it downplays Cody’s involvement.)

-The family of Carole Baskin’s missing husband’s aired a commercial during her Dancing With the Stars debut last night: “Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved? A $100k reward has been funded.”

Kim Kardashian West is going to to freeze her Instagram/Facebook accounts tomorrow to protest hate speech, which is probably going to have more impact than anything the platforms are doing.

Jared Padalecki‘s real-life wife has been cast to play his TV wife in CW’s Walker. I can see this happening more and more during covid. You don’t have to take the same safety precautions when shooting if the actors are living together.

John Boyega is stepping down as a brand ambassador for the British perfume and candle company Jo Malone after the brand reshot a video he created with a different actor for the Chinese market.

-Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask.

Noel Gallagher says he refuses to wear a mask because of freedom or some nonsense.

Emily Ratajkowski wrote a powerful essay for The Cut on controlling photos of herself. She tweeted, “This is an extremely personal piece about image, power and consent.”

Jason Momoa continues to stand by Ray Fisher and his claims about misconduct on the set of Justice League, saying on Instagram“This shit has to stop and needs to be looked at…Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable.”

-In a new interview, Kendall Jenner said “I am a stoner, no one knows that, so that’s the first time I’ve ever really said anything out there.” Groundbreaking stuff.

-Succession’s Sarah Snook has been cast in an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. That is my second fave Austen and there hasn’t really been an adaptation I’ve likes, so I need this to be good!

-This is the best tweet I’ve seen about the JK Rowling mess: “JK Rowling is really out here policing gender identity when she literally identifies as a man to sell more books.?!!!!!!?!)!!”

Jude Law is having a big week. His HBO show debuted last night, and he revealed that he’s welcomed baby no. 6.

-Screening Tenet might have actually harmed movie theatres in the long run, as they have a stronger hand when negotiating rent if they remained closed.

Jerry Harris, the breakout star of Netflix’s docuseries Cheer, is reportedly under FBI investigation for the soliciting sex with minors. God, 2020 won’t let up.

-HBO Max has handed out a straight-to-series order for a pirate comedy from executive producer Taika Waititi called Our Flag Means Death.

-Here’s a new trailer for The Mandalorian’s new season.

-Monsters have taken over the surface of the Earth but Dylan O’Brien is ready to travel above ground to find his girlfriend in the first trailer for Love and Monsters. This looks like dumb fun which is exactly what I’m looking for these days.
