–Gwyneth Paltrow was on the Call Your Daddy podcast and was asked who was better in bed: Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck. Surprisingly, she didn’t shy away from the question!
–Miley Cyrus‘ mom Tish is engaged to Prison Break star Dominic Purcell.
–Christine Baumgartner has filed for divorce from Kevin Costner after 18 years(!) of marriage.
-Meanwhile, the reports of bad blood between Kevin Costner and Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan are ramping up, with sources telling ET that Costner will not be returning after season five. Also, there’s reportedly no word on when the cast and crew are going to return to Montana to finish shooting season five’s remaining episodes, leading to even more frustration.
–Jameela Jamil is calling out everyone involved with this year’s Met Gala for honoring Karl Lagerfeld, who notoriously made cruel comments about fat people and the Me Too movement, among other things. “A lot of famous feminists chose to celebrate a man who was so publicly cruel to women, to fat people, to immigrants and sexual assault survivors. This isn’t about cancel culture. It’s about showing how selective cancel culture is within liberal politics.” She’s not wrong, but that’s why I liked people like Quannah Chasinghorse who didn’t give up their spot but instead wore something he would have absolutely hated.
–Billie Eilish shared a bathroom selfie from the Met that featured Elle Fanning, Halle Bailey and Maya Hawke.
–Priyanka Chopra opened up about the ramifications of botched plastic surgery to remove a benign growth in her nasal cavity in the early 2000s. “This thing happens, and my face looks completely different, and I went into a deep, deep depression.”
-House of the Dragon’s season 2 is set to continue filming amid the writers’ strike because all the scripts have been finished (like writers aren’t ever needed to tweak stuff during production.) I wonder if any actors on series that are continuing as is will balk in solidarity with writers? Steve Carell famously refused to film when The Office tried to continue production during the 2007 strike.
-NBC is covering two weeks of salary for its late night staffers, and then hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers will take care of a third week. I’m not surprised by Meyers, who’s been very vocal in his support of writers, but I wonder if Fallon felt pressured to after this tweet went viral?
-Leave it to writers to come up with clever picket line signs.
–Billie Lourd commented on why she did not invite her late mother Carrie Fisher’s siblings to Carrie’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, set for tomorrow. “Days after my mom died, her brother and her sister chose to process their grief publicly and capitalize on my mother’s death, by doing multiple interviews and selling individual books for a lot of money, with my mom and my grandmother’s deaths as the subject. I found out they had done this through the press.”
-This is an interesting read on how a Canadian real estate agent has suddenly become a fixture among Hollywood circles.
–Timothée Chalamet rides a sandworm like a surfboard and makes out with Zendaya in the Dune 2 trailer.
