–Angelina Jolie and her kids were spotted at the same concert as The Weeknd a week after they had dinner together, leading to renewed speculation they’re dating (even though they’re probably not).
-Speaking of hard-to-believe dating rumours, the one about Tom Cruise and Hayley Atwell has resurfaced.
-This headline makes it seem like it’s about how Kim Kardashian’s style has changed since leaving Kanye West, but it’s actually about how much he seemingly controlled what she wore.
–Millie Bobby Brown is reportedly dating Jon Bon Jovi’s son and wow this kid looks so much like his dad!
–Ariana Grande is honeymooning with Dalton Gomez in Amsterdam.
–Black Widow made a pandemic record $80 million for the U.S. opening and earned another $60 million on Disney+ Premier Access. The standalone superhero movie took in an estimated $218 million globally between ticket sales and Disney+ Premier Access.
-After you’ve seen the movie, here’s a great piece on that controversial scene (which was written by director Nicole Holofcener!)
-Move over, Selena Gomez. Paris Hilton is getting her own cooking show on Netflix.
-The Hating Game is coming to theatres later this year. I know I need to temper my expectations because it likely won’t be as good as the book but I CANNOT WAIT.
-Three weeks after pleading guilty in his child endangerment case, Drake Bell has been sentenced to two years probation.
–Jodie Turner-Smith‘s jewels were stolen from her hotel room in Cannes. It’s believed she may have been targeted after wearing Gucci jewelry to her premiere. Though that jewelry was taken back after the premiere, the robbers stole jewelry worth tens of thousands of euros, including her mother’s wedding ring.
-I’m not sure I like what Bella Hadid wore to Cannes, but tree boobs are certainly one way to generate buzz.
-French actor Judith Chemla, the 37 year-old French star of Mes freres et moi, will not attend the world premiere of the film at Cannes today after she filed a complaint against the director Yohan Manca (who is also her boyfriend), alleging he threw a phone at her. Uh, maybe he’s the one who shouldn’t go?
-A spokesperson for Lea Seydoux confirmed she tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and asymptomatic. She will remain in quarantine until her doctors deem her safe to travel to Cannes and attend festival events. Which should be, like, NOT before the fest is over, no?
–Vince Staples and Lil Nas X’s twitter exchange was hilarious. No one is doing socials right now better than this kid.
-Here’s another best TV of the year so far list. I would add We Are Lady Parts to this list, but I love that Girls4eva and Starstruck made it in there.
-Speaking of TV reviews, the new season of Ted Lasso is getting praise (though the premiere reportedly gets off to a shaky start with a baffling storytelling decision critics aren’t allowed to spoil).
–Shonda Rhimes just signed a new Netflix deal, earning a “significant” raise.
–Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are in full promo mode for Jungle Fever, and this morning on GMA they surprised a custodian who got his degree in his 40s to become a teacher.
–Chris Hemsworth recorded the Loki the Frog noise in last weeks’ Loki.
–Jessica Biel is stepping on Jessica Alba‘s turf by launching a wellness brand for kids.
-This is a good piece in the NYT about why lots of people have no plans to go back to the movies. Our theatres are opening again next week (after the longest closure in North America) and I can’t wait, but I get it.
–Jake Johnson says his new comedy indie movie Ride the Eagle is like “a sweeter companion piece” to New Girl, so I’m in.
–Matt Damon says he turned down James Cameron‘s offer of 10 percent of the Avatar profits to star in it, a payday that would have eventually totaled more than $280 million. Oopsie!
-The Good Place alums Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste reunite in the Queenpins trailer.
