-Yass, queen! Olivia Colman is promoting her regal turn on Netflix’s The Crown with a Vogue cover spread, and the interview is wonderful. (“Over the years, pounds have gone on, and my body has changed; I’ve had children. If someone doesn’t like me because of the size of my bum, they can f**k off. Because I’m quite a nice person to be with, actually.”) Her 73 Questions video is also as delightful as you’d expect.

-In a new interview with Hello!, Angelina Jolie says she has a new perspective on motherhood now that her kids are older: “When your children are little you feel more ‘mommy’. When they are teenagers you start to remember yourself as a teenager. You see them going to punk clubs and you wonder why you can’t go. I’m in this fun moment where I’m rediscovering myself.”

-Meanwhile, at his university in South Korea, Maddox was approached by paparazzi and asked about whether dad Brad Pitt planned to visit him at school. “I don’t know about that, what’s happening. Whatever happens, happens.”

Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Garner is the wholesome Hollywood friendship that the world needs right now.

-Also, Kelly kicks off every episode by doing a cover, and her version of “Bad Romance” is a good time.

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are launching a podcast about The Office for all your nostalgia needs.

Drake texted Bianca Andreescu after she mentioned him in a press conference — and she then read his texts to the media. I love her so hard.

-People are loving how Rihanna staged her lingerie fashion show at NYFW.

Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, the New York Times reporters who exposed Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged sexual misconduct, say “Gwyneth Paltrow was actually one of the first people to get on the phone … she was determined to help this investigation.”

-I’m bummed that Kathryn Hahn‘s new HBO limited series (which debuted at TIFF) isn’t getting great reviews. But very happy that Rosario Dawson‘s Briarpatch (which also screened 2 episodes at TIFF) is going over better.

-Last night’s TIFF audiences gave Renée Zellweger a rapturous, two-minute standing ovation at the screening of the Judy Garland biopic Judy.

-Speaking of movies that sparked with the TIFF crowd, Hustlers is predicted to open big this weekend.

Joaquin Phoenix stormed off the Joker set a lot, according to the director. What is it with actors being jerks on Batman-y sets (Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Phoenix)? And the irony that this happens on a movie which critics say is about toxic masculinity is really something…

-I agree with this piece on how this might be the best fall TV season in years. There are at least three new network shows that I’m going to give a chance (Stumptown, Emergence and Nancy Drew) — which is three more than last year.

-I’ve never seen Downton Abbey, but critics are digging the movie.

-This article on influencer Caroline Calloway from her former friend/ghostwriter has the internet buzzing.

-Apple+ unveiled more info about it’s new TV shows. The streaming service will launch in Nov for $4.99/month (US) which is cheaper than most others. They also offered EW exclusive looks at their new shows, including The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and a trailer for Jason Momoa‘s blind dystopia series.

Britney Spears has been granted a new conservator after her dad Jamie temporarily resigned — supposedly due to his health issues but this comes days after Britney’s ex Kevin Federline filed a temporary restraining order against Jamie for allegedly breaking into the room of their son Sean and shaking him.

-This costume designer interview about an unnamed “famous actor” is so juicy. “The actress comes into the fitting room, we try this suit on, and she looks at it and decides that she hates the suit because the pinstripe on the fabric is too wide. The pinstripe is making her look fat.”

Based on an original story by Millie Bobby Brown and her sister Paige, Netflix is developing A Time Lost: a film about a feud between two families that comes to a head when one daughter is diagnosed with cancer. Anyone else just hoping that Millie gets to nap soon?

-Is Meryl Streep pulling a Scarlett Johansson? In Netflix’s upcoming film The Laundromat, which debuted at TIFF last night, director Steven Soderbergh has Streep playing a second character in disguise near the end of the film: a Panamanian office drone “wearing prosthetics and putting on a thick pan-Latin accent.” That sounds…problematic.

-Well, this is good news: critics say Joker is too tame to be incel bait.

-Was Joaquin Phoenix referring to wife Rooney Mara in his TIFF speech when he said: “Somewhere here, I don’t know where, is a fervent dragon, and I want to rip its wings off, fashion a blanket and sleep with it forever. I love you. Thank you”?

Kim Kardashian continues to insist it didn’t occur to her that naming her shapewear line Kimono would be offensive.

-This oral history of Vampire Diaries is kind of fascinating — mostly because no one wanted Paul Wesley to play Stefan. Creator Julie Plec says “We were sort of pressured into casting Paul Wesley against our desires,” while Nina Dobrev remembers telling producers after her chemistry reads with potential costars: “I don’t know who I connected with the most but I definitely probably connected the least with that Paul Wesley guy.”

-This is terrible: Riverdale star Camila Mendes reveals she was roofied and sexually assaulted in college.

-Netflix’s new miniseries Unbelievable, which stars Toni Collette and Merrit Wever, is getting fantastic reviews.

Miley Cyrus’ Sad House Party

Miley Cyrus‘ walks through the depressing remains of a house party that’s winding down in the new “Slide Away” video.

-Twitter can’t stop talking about Timothee Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp‘s incredibly awkward kiss.

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play the lead role opposite Jeremy Renner in Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye series. I’m surprised by how well this news seems to be going over on Twitter (especially among critics). Is she a lowkey Hollywood darling?

-I secretly love Medieval Times, so I’m got a lot of secondhand delight from watching Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon battle at one.

Prince Andrew continues to implode before our eyes — but apparently we’re only supposed to care that Meghan Markle went to the US Open.

Hayley Atwell joining Tom Cruise in next Mission: Impossible movie is fantasy casting for me.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Hot Priest gave out gin in a tin to people in line outside the Fleabag theatre this weekend.

-I’m not sure about Joker based on all the reviews. Do we really need a sympathetic origin story about a nice-guy-turned-mas- murderer right now? This tweet nails where my head’s at.

Joaquin Phoenix, who is in town for TIFF with Joker, made an appearance at St. George subway station today in support of an animal justice campaign “BeFairBeVegan.” He wouldn’t comment to reporters, though.

-Weird. Variety dubbed a video of Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria talking about how Fiona Apple is donating the money she earns from her song appearing in the film to refugees (the video Variety initially posted replaced the word “refugees” with “the movie”). After being called out, they reposted the video and called it a “glitch.”

-I really like this interview clip with Kristen Stewart on what sort of reactions she’s gotten since saying she was warned that she’d never get a Marvel movie if she came out. (I spotted her in the audience on Friday night with her gf at Jason Segel‘s film The Friend, which I don’t think she has a connection to.)

-I’m having a ridiculously good TIFF. Seven movies so far and none that I’ve hated. And I haven’t seen them yet, but people are losing their crap about how good Hustlers and Knives Out are. The only obvious flop so far: Nicole Kidman’s The Goldfinch.

-People also really loved The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The compliment I keep hearing is that it’s endlessly quotable (which you wouldn’t know from this trailer).
