-I didn’t even recognize Katy Perry on the cover of L’OFFICIEL. She talked about how her life has changed since she welcomed her daughter Daisy. “As a performer I’ve always relied on the love and acceptance and validation of the outside world and that ultimately can waver at times. When you have a child, you have someone who looks at you and doesn’t know anything on your resume, doesn’t know anything about your bank account, doesn’t know anything, doesn’t care, and just loves you. Unconditional love. It’s just…everything I think I was looking for.”
-I love that Nicholas Braun landed a British GQ cover. Sadly, he wasn’t asked about DeuxMoi’s obsession with his sex life.
–Taylor Swift is going to try to shake off the Cats stink with another swing at acting. She’s joined the cast of David O. Russell’s next film, starring alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie.
–Kate Winslet was interviewed by Maureen Dowd for the NYT, and her reaction to the rapid fire round is hilarious. When asked about following Bennifer news she replied “What? No! I’ve never read about Jennifer in my life. What are these questions?”
-She also talked about insisting on being unglamorous for Mare of Easttown, and says she disapproved the promotional poster twice because she was too retouched. “They were like ‘Kate, really, you can’t,’ and I’m like ‘Guys, I know how many lines I have by the side of my eye, please put them all back.’… I guess that’s why people have connected with this character in the way that they have done because there are clearly no filters. She’s a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age and her life and where she comes from. I think we’re starved of that a bit.”
-The Amell cousins are returning for a Code 8 sequel. Hopefully they can pay for it themselves this time.
–Julianne Hough’s teen niece posted a TikTok saying “My aunt has slept with Leonardo DiCaprio. Apparently, he’s not good in bed, though.” She didn’t mention if he wore headphones, though.
-The Friends cast received at least $2.5 million each to appear in the special.
-In their latest podcast, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke spoke about Mischa Barton’s recent comments on her poor treatment during the filming of The O.C. “Where is she going with this and what is she trying to say? I would actually like to talk to her and find out what her experience was from her perspective, because I saw things a little differently.”
–Martin Freeman called method acting “the most self-aggrandizing, selfish, narcissistic f**king bollocks I have ever seen.” My favourite method acting story when Dustin Hoffman told Laurence Olivier that he hadn’t slept because he was filming a scene where his character was up for three days straight, and Olivier replied “Why don’t you just try acting?”
–Kelly Osbourne appeared on Red Table Talk and discussed her relapse during the pandemic after 4 years of sobriety.
-Congrats to Lance Bass, who’s expecting twins with his hubby.
-Broad City’s Ilana Glazer stars in the new pregnancy horror film False Positive.
