I think the world of you. I celebrate you and I always have and I always will.”

Meanwhile, Supergirl star Melissa Benoist and hubby Chris Wood announced that they welcomed a son named Huxley Robert Wood “a few weeks ago.”

–Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly went to a club last night (is that a thing people are doing right now?!) and scaled a roof, which is definitely not a thing people are doing right now.

-I usually like Alyssa Rosenberg‘s pop culture takes but this piece on why there’s never been a better time to read J.K. Rowling‘s books is not it. I think what she’s trying to say is that her latest novel is not as transphobic as the press has made it out to be and we should all read it and judge for ourselves, but even having a killer who dresses up in women’s clothing perpetuates a gross trope, whether he identifies as trans or not. And knowing what Rowling has said publicly (even just this week!) does not want to make me give her the benefit of the doubt or contribute to her already full coffers.
–Aldis Hodge is in talks to play Hawkman in the Black Adam movie starring Dwayne Johnson. I recently saw Hodge in One Night in Miami and he’s so, so good.
