–Jacob Elordi covers GQ and says it’s “bullshit” that Netflix didn’t let him smoke in The Kissing Booth (“I remember saying, ‘He smokes in the book. He needs to have cigarettes…Are we lying to the fucking millions of 14-year-olds out there? This guy smokes nicotine'”). He also talks about Euphoria’s long, chaotic hours (“For me, working on that set is an absolute treat. When I’m working with Sam [Levinson], I’m in the trenches with him, and I trust him, and I work myself to the bone for him. I think I’ve read people saying, ‘Look, that’s a bad image to set, you shouldn’t have to work yourself to the bone for art.’ Fuck that. I enjoy it. What everyone’s seeing on television, the shots that people are talking about, the feelings that they get, the conversation that’s around the show, that’s because certain shots take 30-something takes.”)
–Renée Zellweger says she became “more authentically” herself after turning 50.
–Ezra Miller was just charged with felony burglary in Vermont, stemming from an incident on May 1 when several bottles of alcohol were taken from a residence while the homeowners were not present. I’m going to need to construct a string map to plot all the allegations against this guy soon…
–Ashton Kutcher revealed that he was diagnosed with a rare form of vasculitis nearly two years ago and it left him unable to hear or see for an extended period of time. “It took me like a year to build it all back up again. You don’t really appreciate it until it’s gone, until you go, ‘I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again; I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again; I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.'”
–Olivia Newton-John has died at 73 after battling breast cancer.
–Rosario Dawson is quickly walking back her comments about Jon Bernthal returning to play Punisher on Disney+, saying she heard the rumour from a fan. My guess is she got her hand slapped for announcing it too soon. Now if they could just confirm Deborah Ann Woll‘s return, my Kastle-shipping heart will be happy.
-After crashing her car into a house, Anne Heche’s condition sounds far graver than it was first reported over the weekend. A rep tells Deadline, “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition… She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness.”

-I haven’t watched Fargo for a few years, but season five’s cast continues to grow in tempting ways. Stranger Things’ Joe Keery and New Girl’s Lamorne Morris just signed on, joining already-announced Juno Temple, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
-I’m convinced Lea Michele knows all about the conspiracy theories surrounding her supposed inability to read and did this video just to troll everyone.
–Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie are still working on Mission Impossible 8, but they’re already charting their next movies: a new action franchise, an original musical, and the return of Cruise’s Tropic Thunder character Les Grossman. I wonder how the latter will play these days? Fat suits and parodies of Weinstein-type producers don’t really hit like they used to…
-I’m really here for Vampire Diaries’ Kat Graham turning into Netflix’s latest leading lady of romcoms.
–Thandiwe Newton gets entangled in a feud with hunters trespassing on her land in the trailer for God’s Country.
