Zoë Kravitz Goes Makeup-Free for Harper’s Bazaar


Zoë Kravitz goes completely unretouched (and looks phenomenal) on her new Harper’s Bazaar cover. She talks about previous magazine Photoshop experiences: “I did a cover of a magazine once and noticed that my eyes were this beautiful hazel-green color, which would be great, but they’re not that color! Little things like that. I’ve seen my hands be changed before. It makes you think, “What’s wrong with my hands? Or my eyes?”

-So, despite those reports, Hailey Baldwin is denying that she and Justin Bieber got married this week.

Ariana Grande posted a very sweet IG video of Mac Miller, saying “I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix it or take your pain away.”

Lady Gaga reveals what she thinks is her #1 look ever in Vogue’s 73 questions. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t the meat dress. (Sidenote: is this the most stationary 73Q segment ever? I wanna see her house!)

-In a recent interview, Bradley Cooper addressed the news that A Star Is Born producer Jon Peters has been sued by at least five former employees for sexual harassment.

-This interview with TATBILB’s Noah Centineo (“the best thirst architect the internet’s ever seen”) is great. I LOVE that the author made him recreate the pocket spin with her!

Meaghan Markle is reportedly having trouble figuring out which of her friends she can trust, while her former Suits costars are struggling with being asked about her all the time. (I get it; we saw Patrick Adams hanging out at TIFF and it was hard not to bug him about it.)

Cardi B hits back at Nicki Minaj’s payola claims. (Is payola still a thing? Radio plays don’t seem to matter much these days…)

-Modern Family will kill off a main character in Season 10. Wait, Modern Family is still on?!?

-God, I love that Candice Patton of The Flash is calling out DC/Funko for releasing figurines for only the show’s male characters. Even Wally West got one? Come on.

-First Brandon Routh‘s wife, now Stephen Amell’s wife. If you want a role on the CW, just marry one of its stars.

-For reasons I can’t begin to comprehend, the New York Review of Books let Jian Ghomeshi write a self-pitying, self-pardoning reflection on his ouster from Canadian media. (I love that everyone is circulating a link to this PDF instead of the actual article itself to avoid contributing to its pageviews.) It is so tone-deaf that it has to be seen to be believed (it begins with a woman *apologizing to him* for bringing up what he did, and ends with him congratulating himself for meeting a woman on a train and not trying to hook up with her). Many people much smarter than I am have pointed out the piece’s problems, but I think my issue with his article — and Louis C.K.’s return and all of these comebacks and handwringing about their reputations/future — is that not one of these men are actually acknowledging that they’ve contemplated the hurt they’ve caused their victims and/or learned from it. Dan Harmon‘s apology and subsequent actions is the only guy that comes to mind.

-Meanwhile, my favourite reaction is Roxanne Gay’s tweet: “I wonder which publication will give a victim of sexual harassment or violence 7,000 words to discuss her or his experience.”

Julie Chen signed off Big Brother last night as “Julie Chen Mooves” so…yeah.

-Is Jake Gyllenhall the patron saint of movies? First he helped the latest Halloween movie get off the ground, and now comes word that he also helped If Beale Street Could Talk happen.

John Goodman and Vera Farmiga star in the Captive State trailer.


Emma Stone Hits the Streets with Billy Eichner

-Here’s the Billy on the Street segment with Emma Stone, in which he tries to convince her to join Instagram. The girl around the 3:30 min marks slays me (“Even Will Smith is on it!”)

David Marchese interviews are always a delight, but his latest with Emma Thompson takes it to a whole new level of awesomeness. She talks about the #MeToo movement, her evolving feminism, and drops bon mots such as: “Although we mustn’t get gloomy. Lots of things are better today: dentistry.”

-Her interview-turned-dance with Stephen Colbert was also magic.

-The White Boy Rick promo tour has given Matthew McConaughey multiple opportunities to repeat his non-so-great beliefs about the “problem” with single-parent families.

-Goddamit. Aaron Paul deserves a better a show than Westworld.

-Manager Scooter Braun says he used to worry every night that Justin Bieber was going to die of an overdose. “There was a time when I would go to sleep almost every night when he had the money to fly away from me and I was worried every night that I was gonna lose him. That was the time when I was telling him he’s not allowed to work. He used to yell and scream at me and he wanted to put music out. He wanted to tour, but I thought if he did that, he would die.”

-Save us, Rihanna!

-The cast of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before wrote their own fanfiction and I would read it all…

-Oof — emails released in a lawsuit show that Warren Beatty dismissed test audiences’ initial reactions to his movie Rules Don’t Apply because they were “too ethnic.”

Norm Macdonald apologized for his “Down Syndrome” remark, tried to clarify his Roseanne/Louis C.K. comments, and added “If 500 women go against a man, obviously the guy is guilty. But with Chris Hardwick, it was one woman against one man. So, I was saying that it was good … that Chris Hardwick has been rehabilitated as he’s going to get.” Yeah, he should probably just stop now.

-Oh good, he just might.  He gave the New Yorker what he’s said may be his last-ever print interview.

-According the NYT’s new story on Les Moonves, the board only began to turn on him when they discovered, after months of assuring them the accusations were false or “grossly overstated,” that he was trying to find one of his accusers a job at CBS in exchange for her silence.

-BoJack Horseman’s Raphael Bob-Waksberg apologized for the “original sin” of casting his show with only white people.

-The Predator director Shane Black gave an emotional apology on the red carpet, telling the AP “I take full responsibility. I’m very deeply sorry…I hope I learn from this.” I hope he reached out to Olivia Munn.

-Speaking of Munn, The Predator sex offender’s victim has broken her silence to thank the actress for taking a stand on her behalf: “I was not able to speak for myself when I was 14…I am also eternally grateful for Olivia Munn’s action. She spoke up for me. She took a stance for me. In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have. To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering.”

-The Good Place’s Jameela Jamil took down a gym bodyshamer.

Lindsay Morgan from The 100 and Emily Bett Rickards from Arrow keep posting videos of them working out together and it makes my gym sessions look like naptime.

Judy Greer cried while talking about BFF Jennifer Garner on yesterday’s episode of The Social.

-In court documents, a jewelry designer has accused Sarah Jessica Parker of borrowing about $70,000 worth of jewelry, which she never returned. SJP’s lawyer is denying the allegations.

Missy Elliott surprised viral video star Mary Halsey on Ellen today. I love that they kept cutting to Kristen Bell during her performance.

-The first trailer for Netflix’s The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is legitimately creepy.

-Here’s the first full promo for Julia Roberts‘ new Amazon show Homecoming, which looks creepy af. It screened at TIFF this week and people dug it.

Julianne Moore Learned How To Sing Opera For Her New Movie

JJulianne Moore Town Country Cover 

-I don’t know why Town & Country chose this odd shot of Julianne Moore (who is always stunning) for their cover. In the interview, she talks about getting a vocal coach to play an opera singer in Bel Canto, and trying to mix up her roles. “Oddly, a lot of my roles get clumped together. There was a series of 1950s housewives that were all thrown at me at the same time. Or you do a bunch of funny things all at once. My daughter recently asked me about a project, ‘Do you die again, Mom? I feel like you always die.'”

-If you read anything today, read Designing Women creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason‘s takedown of Les Moonves in the Hollywood Reporter. She says he derailed her career for seven years and refused to make any more of her shows featuring strong women (she claims he had hated Designing Women and their “loud-mouthed speeches.”) “People asked me for years, ‘Where have you been? What happened to you?’ Les Moonves happened to me.” She also says he forcibly kissed a famous actress of an “iconic detective show” after telling her she was too old to be on his network, which has led to a lot of speculation that she’s talking about Angela Lansbury or Sharon Gless.

-Today’s Hollywood Reporter was all about spilling tea. Blackish creator Kenya Barris broke his silence on the shelved anti-Trump episode that led to his ABC exit, his clashes with Disney exec Ben Sherwood, the “monster” Roseanne, and the anxiety of high expectations with his massive Netflix deal.

-Also from THR, the set of American Gods sounds like a disaster. They changed showrunners and now the new guy is being “sidelined” but they won’t actually say he’s fired because “the show’s studio would rather exile Alexander than endure the negative attention that would come with dismissing a second showrunner in two seasons.” Also, this is WILD: “Actors have been rewriting script pages…After some actors, including star Ian McShane, began taking passes at improving dialogue, the production was forced to enlist co-star Orlando Jones as a writer on the series so a member of the WGA would be credited with writing instead of having actors violating guild rules.”

-After five days of silence, Olivia Munn‘s Predator co-star Boyd Holbrook released a statement in support of her.

-Meanwhile, on Ellen yesterday Munn said she was “chastised” by the studiofor not keeping quiet.

-I really liked this defense of season 6 of Buffy (which a lot of people call “season sucks”). I remember it being a bummer to watch — and I never fully forgave the writers for what they did to Spike — but in hindsight it had some amazing episodes.

-On Tuesday, Norm Macdonald was scheduled to make an appearance on NBC’s Tonight Show but his visit was cancelled in the wake of his garbage fire of an interview. (Jimmy Fallon reportedly told him that senior producers were “crying” over his potential appearance.) Macdonald has since tried to walk back his comments — IN THE WORST POSSIBLE WAY, telling Howard Stern, “you’d have to have Down syndrome to not feel sorry” for victims of sexual harassment.” Cripes, is everything out of this guy’s mouth trash? (I guess we shouldn’t be surprised by this from the guy who once threatened to walk away from SNL’s Weekend Update if they made him do it .)

-This Steve McQueen interview in which he was told not to cast Michelle Rodriguez in Widows because she was “difficult” is illuminating. “But people say that about me. If you’re a white director, they call you a perfectionist. Me, they call difficult.”

-Speaking of the Widows cast, Viola Davis was if she ever passed on a role and regretted it and she answered, “Almost a better question is, have I ever done roles that I’ve regretted? I have, and ‘The Help’ is on that list.” Ava DuVernay backed her up by tweeting, “The Help was the last film I worked on as a publicist. I quit PR. That film pushed me to make my own – for the reasons Viola states.”

-Green Book starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali is shaping up to be the surprise hit of TIFF.

-A campaign to get Ryan Gosling to visit a Toronto café during TIFF finally won him over.

Paul McCartney says he masturbated with John Lennon: “It was good harmless fun”. Ok then.

-The DC cinematic universe appears to be losing its Man of Steel. Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films, is parting ways with Warner Bros, according to sources. Michael B. Jordan is among the actors reportedly being considered to take over the role, but first DC is focusing on bringing Supergirl to the big screen.

-I didn’t dislike Sierra Burgess Is a Loser as much as others (I think they made some smart, unexpected choices like having the mean girl’s mom be played by Chrissy Metz, and giving the love interest a deaf brother) but I agree that kissing scene was grossly flippant about consent.

-Netflix acquired Dumplin‘, a dramatic comedy based on a YA book starring Jennifer Aniston with a soundtrack by Dolly Parton.

The Coen brothers’ first Netflix project, Ballad of Buster Scruggs, features James Franco and Tim Blake Nelson in a tale about cowboys and their misfit adventures.
