-In a new interview with Another, Zoë Kravitz is branching out from acting and working on a solo album with Jack Antonoff, as well as finishing her directorial debut, Pussy Island. The accompanying photos are a little more topless than I need, because apparently I’m turning into my mother…
–Lena Dunham wore three wedding dresses inspired by Claudia Schiffer, Priscilla Presley and Sharon Tate at her London wedding last weekend.
–Jake Gyllenhaal and his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu made their first public appearance together at the premiere of his sister’s new movie. The 40-year-old actor has been linked to 25-year-old model since 2018.
-On this week’s celebrity news bingo, I did not have “Shakira attacked by wild boars“.
–Aaron Sorkin spoke about the downfall of producer Scott Rudin. “First of all, I have my own experience with Scott, and it’s a higher class of bullying, but I get it.” (I’m more interested by the fact that Josh Charles, who starred in Sorkin’s Sports Night, does not seem to like the interview.)
–This whole thread on Ellen Pompeo is eye-opening, and very much incongruent to how she presents herself as an ally. I know this onset behavior is common (and with actors much lower on the callsheet) but I still can’t believe she volunteered that Denzel story up in a podcast, much less that she did so at the same time a tell-all book is dropping that doesn’t seem to paint her in a great light. Like, why?
–Jamie Spears released a lengthy statement through his lawyer after the court suspended him.
-Meanwhile, Britney Spears is flying high — literally.
-In a new TED Talk, Lizzo opens up about how twerking helped her appreciate her body and delves into the history behind the dance move.
–Lil Nas X says he’s currently single. “I just want to work on music, and every now and then, you know, maybe I’ll kiss a guy every blue moon.”
–Kate Middleton got up close and personal with a tarantula named Charlotte. Prince William did not.
–Graham Norton credits Tom Cruise for getting celebrities comfortable enough to come back into his studio for in-person interviews.
–Daniel Craig has been alerted to the weekend meme. He immediately recognized that it’s not the worst thing to be associated with kicking off what we’re all looking forward to, saying “They do? It’s amazing. I don’t know what that is, but thank you. That’s lovely.”
-To say the reviews for Venom: Let There Be Carnage are mixed would be kind. It’s currently 61% on RottenTomatoes (a drop of 10% since I looked this morning). Some outlets, like the L.A. Times and the Washington Post, gave it raves, but a lot of critics are piling on the venom, calling it a ‘ridiculous mess’ and a ‘porn tentacle fest’ that feels like ‘the mold in the Avengers’ shower.’
–Lily-Rose Depp (who is everywhere lately) falls in love with a guy who thinks he’s a wolf (George MacKay) in the Wolf trailer.
-Here’s the first teaser for Disney’s Encanto.
