Millie Bobby Brown Talks Mistakes and Makeup

Millie Bobby Brown on the cover of Allure

-Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown covers the Sept issue of Allure and talks about stepping way from the vitriol of social media (“It’s really hard to be hated on when you don’t know who you are yet”), why she created her youth beauty line (“Everything’s antiaging, everything is depuffing. We don’t know what that means. I need to know more. And I know our generation needs to know more”), and her “unhealthy situation” with TikTok star Hunter Ecimovic, who made crude comments about their relationship when she was 16 and he was 20 (“When you get publicly humiliated this way, I felt so out of control and powerless. Walking away and knowing that I’m worth everything and this person didn’t take anything from me, it felt very empowering”).

-I don’t know if it’s because it’s shot like a E! True Hollywood story or if it’s the subject matter, but even though there’s not much new info in the trailer for the three-part docuseries on Armie Hammer and his family, it’s really, really disturbing.

Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis‘ custody fight is getting messier. She responded to being publicly served custody papers while on stage at CinemaCon in April — filing court docs of her own saying he tried to “embarrass” and “threaten” her with the stunt. “Jason’s actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard. He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible. The fact that Jason would embarrass me professionally and put our personal conflict on public display in this manner is extremely contrary to our children’s best interests. Since Jason has made it clear that we will not be able to work this out for our children’s sake outside of the court system, I filed a petition for custody in Los Angeles.” The judge granted her request to dismiss Sudeikis’ petition to move their custody battle from California to New York.

-Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood features Angus Cloud, Halle Bailey, Becky G and Brooklyn Peltz Beckham. Not surprisingly, Euphoria’s Cloud gives the best interview, explaining that he got the scar on his head from falling into a construction pit at 13. “I woke up 12 hours later at the bottom. I was trapped. I eventually climbed out after — I don’t know how long. It was hella hard to climb out, because my skull was broken, but my skin wasn’t, so all the bleeding was internal, pressing up against my brain. But they wasn’t gonna find me down there. I found myself. Or God found me, whatever you want to call it. But I didn’t feel no pain. I was in survival mode, you feel me?”

-Also, this part of the video where they ask him if he prefers Shrek or the Studio Ghibli movies is such a Fez-like response.

-The loves of Ben Affleck’s life have been captured in one photo.

-This is a very cute interview with Ted Lasso’s Brett Goldstein and Hannah Waddingham.

Marcus Mumford tells GQ his mom learned he was sexually abused when he was 6 after he played her his latest single — and he realized he had never told her about it. “[She said] ‘Can I ask what that song’s about?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, it’s about the abuse thing.’ She was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ So once we get through the trauma of that moment for her, as a mother, hearing that and her wanting to protect and help and all that stuff, it’s objectively fucking hilarious to tell your mom about your abuse in a fucking song, of all things.”

-Not surprisingly, Ryan Reynolds says Blake Lively’s reaction to him buying a soccer team was “Not great, we’re still working through that one.”

-How does a series that’s as bad as The Morning Show keep landing such good talent? Jon Hamm just joined the cast as a corporate titan.

-A League of Their Own is getting good reviews.

-Good lord, the Golden Globes will return to NBC next year.

Amanda Seyfried says she wishes sets had intimacy coordinators when she was younger. “Being 19, walking around without my underwear on – like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen? Oh, I know why: I was 19 and I didn’t want to upset anybody and I wanted to keep my job. That’s why.”

-Here’s the trailer for Lena Dunham’s period piece, Catherine, Called Birdy, starring the fierce little girl from GoT and Fleabag’s Hot Priest. I’m into this.

Mindy Kaling On Being a Mother, Mentor and Mogul

-In her new Marie Claire cover story, Mindy Kaling talks about how her priorities changed when she moved behind-the-scenes (“I think in my twenties I was only focused on, ‘Okay, I don’t want to get fired. I want to be successful’, and I was only thinking about myself. In no way was I thinking about things that are the most important to me now, which is my health, holding the door open behind me for other people”) and the relief of being off-camera (“The amount of articles that were like, ‘It’s so good for a culture that this unattractive woman is finally on camera.’ I didn’t know I was so unattractive until I was the star of my own show. So not having to see those things, that’s wonderful”).

-There was lots of chatter about who was going to be on the cover of Vogue’s September issue because everyone reportedly had to sign NDAs, and now it makes sense: Serena Williams used her cover story to announce she’s planning to retire from tennis after playing in this year’s U.S. Open. “I’m here to tell you that I’m evolving away from tennis, toward other things that are important to me…I have never liked the word retirement. It doesn’t feel like a modern word to me. I’ve been thinking of this as a transition…Maybe the best word to describe what I’m up to is evolution.”

Taika Waititi and Rita Ora are reportedly married. A source tells The Sun the pair wed in an intimate ceremony in London, and she’s changed her surname to Waititi-Ora.

-Once again proving there’s no such thing as cancelation, Johnny Depp has signed a seven-figure deal with Dior to once again become the face of its Sauvage fragrance for men. I do wonder if the tide is turning for him, though. The past week’s social media has been filled with fans seeming shocked and outraged by the unflattering info in the recently unsealed court docs (though frankly, it’s nothing new for anyone who was actually paying attention and not just getting all their info from stan TikTok.)

-I’m trying to watch The Sandman but as someone who hasn’t read the source material, I’m finding it a little impenetrable. Still, I liked this article on the timely return of the emo leading man.

-Meanwhile, based on Netflix’s self-reported numbers, The Sandman had a good opening weekend.

-I’m having a much easier time watching the final episodes for Better Call Saul, which have been *chef’s kiss*. Here’s a good interview with Vince Gilligan on why he’s done with the Breaking Bad universe after he wraps up the series next week.

Talib Kweli is suing Jezebel for emotional distress that he claims was caused by their 2020 story, “Talib Kweli’s Harassment Campaign Shows How Unprotected Black Women Are Online and Off.”

Jacob Elordi Talks Cigarettes and Sets

Jacob Elordi GQ cover

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.

-Even though Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up, Kanye West is still trolling him. He posted a fake obituary for “Skete Davidson.” Kardashian is reportedly “appalled” by the post.

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.”

Beyoncé’s Renaissance marks this year’s biggest debut by a woman.

-Meanwhile, I love her remix of Vogue, in which she replaces all the people Madonna lists in the original with Black women.

Kevin Federline could have just … not.

-A photo circulated around Twitter this weekend of Austin Butler‘s ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens meeting his current girlfriend Kaia Gerber when she was a legit child, and it’s so disturbing.

-Also gross: Dane Cook reportedly met his 23-year-old fiancée when she was a teen.

-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.

-Congrats to Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson, who’s engaged to girlfriend Jodi Balfour.

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.
