–George Clooney‘s CBS This Morning interview is generating lots of headlines for the part where he talks about cutting his hair with a Flowbee (“My haircuts take, literally, two minutes”), but the full 8-minute interview is full of gems. He remembers discovering he was having twins (“I was up for one! I’m like, ‘I’m old.’ All of a sudden it’s two and I literally … it’s hard to get me to not talk and I just stood there for like 10 minutes, just staring at this piece of paper going, ‘What, two?!’ “) and talked about being in lockdown at home (“It’s been a while since I did 15 loads of laundry in a day and mopped floors and all these doors over here I stained. I always say I felt like my mother in 1964, because she had two kids and no help. I don’t know how she did it now. I have more sympathy for her now than ever”).
–Cardi B is apologizing after tweeting that she had 37 people over for Thanksgiving while most people couldn’t even see their family. She says she felt safe because she gets tested 4 times a week because of work. At what point are celebs going to realize preventive testing doesn’t work? You can have it for days before it shows up on the test (and tests aren’t foolproof anyway). I don’t love shaming individuals when I think it’s mostly the fault of the government/public health for not making things clearer, but for the love of god, stop broadcasting your protocol-breaking shenanigans all over social media.
-Chef David Chang became the first celebrity to win $1 million on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
–Felicity Huffman has landed her first TV role since completing her prison sentence.
-Welp. The finale for The Undoing was not good, prioritizing red herrings over characters who act in any way that makes sense. A more interesting script would have had the person who gave the case-turning testimony have to reckon with the fact that they were so blind to what was happening under their nose, but instead we got a really underwhelming car chase. I really liked this take: “No one likes to feel that they have been duped or that they wasted their time, even if eliciting that feeling serves a broader storytelling point, and that’s basically what this series did.”
-Speaking of 6-episode limited mystery series, The Flight Attendant is FUN. The first three episodes dropping on Crave last week; the next three are this week. I didn’t know Kaley Cuoco had this in her but she’s so, so good.
-Her Flight Attendant costar Rosie Perez says she had covid way back in Dec while shooting the series in Bangkok.
-The Flash had to shut down production again in Vancouver after someone tested positive.
–Laverne Cox says is “definitely in shock” and “triggered” but OK after a transphobic attack while walking with a friend in a park on Saturday.
–Rosario Dawson was trending this weekend because of her Mandalorian appearance, so that means the rumours of her being anti-trans surfaced again. She told Vanity Fair: “I was raised in a very inclusive and loving way, and that’s how I’ve lived my entire life.”
–Alison Brie says the first time she met Ellen Degeneres, she accidentally showed her a dick pic. That must have gone over well.
-The UK’s Culture Secretary is demanding Netflix make it clear The Crown is ‘fiction‘. He knows how scripts and cameras and actors work, right?
-Disney is honouring the late Chadwick Boseman in Black Panther’s new opening montage when it streams on Disney Plus.
