–Gwyneth Paltrow appeared in a Park City, Utah courtroom for the start of a lawsuit that alleges she crashed into a man while skiing in Feb. 2016 and left the scene of the crash. A retired optometrist says she skied “out of control” and ran into him, causing “a brain injury, four broken ribs and other serious injuries.” (The cynical side of me wonders if she said that starvation diet nonsense a few days ago to cause a controversy that could overshadow this…but then again there really is no overshadowing this.)

-Well, that’s one way to announce a pregnancy. Sarah Snook showed up at the Succession premiere and showed off her baby bump.
-There was a lot of baby news at the premiere. Alexander Skarsgård confirmed on the red carpet that he recently welcomed his first child with girlfriend Tuva Novotny.
–Brian Cox yelled in character at all the photographers on the red carpet and it was clearly a joke when you see the video, but Fisher Stevens was being interviewed down the carpet when it happened and you can tell he had no idea if Cox was actually yelling at someone or not. So that sounds like a fun costar.
-Also, look at his face when Jeremy Strong put his arm around him.
-At least Cox looked like he was having fun at the party, dancing with the cast to “Call Me Maybe.”
–Law Roach appeared on Emily Ratajkowski‘s “High Low with EmRata” podcast and said Zendaya was surprised he hadn’t warned her he was retiring. “She calls [and] she said, ‘Girl, I thought we’d make big decisions together.’ She, of course, supported me. She’s like, ‘Do you need me to send you on a vacation? Tell me what you’re going through.’ And I, you know, talk to her about just being unhappy for a really long time and still grieving the death of my nephew … And she was like, ‘Whatever you need, whatever you need.'”

–Joshua Jackson gushed about his relationship with Jodie Turner-Smith. “The most surprising thing is that it’s a lot more homey than it looks like from the outside. It’s very, very baby-oriented and family-oriented inside the house…It’s pretty spectacular, honestly. Mama does love a dress up and I don’t mind getting dressed up and standing next to her. But this having a kid thing together is pretty magical.”

–Adam Goldberg appeared on a podcast and talked about his longterm relationship with someone who sounds like Christina Ricci, and how she broke up with him over the phone. “Six months later, she wanted back in. It was a truly masochistic act. It was all ego. In fact, she had called several times and I ignored her and bought a house and got myself really back on my feet. [But] then she left again! This time, she let me pick her up from the airport and she [broke up with me] on the way back from another job of hers. It was in traffic on the freeway. She wanted to wait until we got to the house because I knew something was up, but I was like, ‘Dude. It’s going to take me 45 minutes to get home.’ I was just like, ‘UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE,’ but I knew it.”
