Taylor Swift’s Holiday Home Movies

Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm so it makes sense that she wrote a holiday song called “Christmas Tree Farm.” The video, released just days after she wrote the tune, features home movies of her as a kid and is undeniably adorable.

-Queer Eye’ star Jonathan Van Ness is the first non-female to grace a Cosmo cover since Boy George.

Jennifer Garner showed off her giant Christmas tree. “I’m not sure this is the tree we picked out. It’s a little aggressive.” (Also, she says ‘foyer’ weird.)

-Variety went deep with Billy Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell for their new cover story.

-I friggin’ love that Robbie Amell did interviews for his new movie at Pai because it’s his fave Toronto restaurant. He’s not wrong. (Great cameo by Chef Nuit, too.)

James Corden and Max Greenfield made an aspiring screenwriter’s dreams come true in a Starbucks.

-My god, just shut down every version of Big Brother immediately. This show is a trainwreck in every country.

-In honour of Marriage Story hitting Netflix today, Vulture did a feature on how Adam Driver looks ridiculously tall in that movie. (“What we are gathered here today to discuss is how much fun it is to see Adam Driver, big boy, squeeze himself into small things.”)

-Wait, now Amy Sedaris is in The Mandalorian? I’m gonna have to watch this sucker, aren’t I?

-This is a very good, very deep dive into the reporting style of the National Enquirer.

-All the brands who replied to this Netflix tweet nailed it. (Scroll through the photos for responses.)

Tom Holland may have saved the Spider-Man movies by drunkenly calling Disney head Bob Iger at a pub in tears. “I’m like three pints in, I haven’t eaten much…I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end.”

Keri Russell and Oscar Isaac are the real dream duo on this promo tour.

-Here’s a lovely moment of Jodie Whittaker getting a silver disc for her cover of Coldplay’s Yellow.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne star in the trailer for The Aeronauts, a film that got lukewarm reviews on the festival circuit.

 

Daisy Ridley Covers British GQ

-I don’t know why British GQ styled Daisy Ridley like a mechanic, but I’m kind of here for it? I also dig her comments about royalty: “I’m going to tell you something so shocking for Americans but not Brits; I don’t massively care about the royal family. I am not a royalist. Buckingham Palace is great but it’s an unused building, isn’t it? The other day, there was a story that the Queen uses six rooms in the palace. Six. How is that a good thing? It’s prime real estate.”

-I was really worried when I saw that Princess Anne was trending this morning, but it turns out it’s just because she’s a badass. She was part of the conversation with Trudeau in which he and other world leaders mocked Trump, and then was scolded by the Queen when she refused to meet with him. I think I love her.

Tom Hanks, Shia LaBeouf, Robert De Niro, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx and Adam Sandler take part in THR’s drama actors roundtable, and it’s a pretty decent discussion (though De Niro barely talks). I like Hanks’ view on comedy: “Can you be funny if you grew up with a built-in swimming pool in your backyard? I don’t think you can. If you grew up being able to swim any time you wanted to, you experienced none of the shortcomings of life that you turn into self-deprecation. You can’t do it.”

Kesha is throwing her name into the mix of stars who have entered the cosmetics world with the launch of her makeup line, Kesha Rose Beauty.

Camila Morrone has no problem with her 23-year age gap with boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. “There’s so many relationships in Hollywood⁠—and in the history of the world⁠—where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

Jennifer Lopez is hosting SNL this weekend, and I wish they’d given her a better promo.

-Bad news: that Michael Jackson musical appears to be going forward, and it will be “a part-puppet show in which the late singer’s alleged history of child sex abuse is blamed on a glove-shaped alien forcing Jackson to feed on boys.” Good news: despite earlier reports, rep for Johnny Depp says that he and his company are not producing or involved in any way.

-This is terrible: Mena Massoud says he couldn’t get an audition after starring in Aladdin, which made $1B.

-Riverdale costars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton are no longer dating…for now.

-If I currently looked like Kate Beckinsale does at 46, I’d be unapologetic about posing in a bikini too.

Daniel Craig is back as Bond in the No Time to Die trailer. I’m loving that Léa Seydoux is in this. I’ve only seen her in weird French movies and I love her.

Adam Driver Goes Dark for Rolling Stone

rolling-stone-adam-driver-

Adam Driver is on the new cover of Rolling Stone, and yes, this is an acceptable way to start my week.

-The American Music Awards were last night. The red carpet was underwhelming, the shade was surprisingly subtle, and the most creative performance came from Halsey, of all people.  My personal favourite moment was when the camera cut to the audience during Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s performance, and you could see Jenna Dewan clearly mouth “she’s always so extra.”  (She’s since denied it.)

Justin Timberlake’s camp is fighting back at rumours that he cheated on Jessica Biel with co-star Alisha Wainwright, with a source saying their like brother and sister. Oh sure, I often hold hands with my brother when I’m not stroking his knee.

-This Kim Kardashian profile is worth reading, if only for the part where Kris Jenner is gifted the bag Kim wanted at her Chanel fashion shoot: “I remember texting my sisters and being like, “Guys, mom is stealing my shiiiine. This is my first fashion shoot! So then the shoot’s over, and [Karl] comes out with something behind his back. And I’m like: “THE BAAAAAG. IT’S HEEEERRE. OH MY GOD.” I’m thinking: I will cherish this forever, and I’m pregnant, so one day I’ll give this bag to my daughter. Then he comes up and he’s like, “Kim, this was the best shoot. Thank you so much. But Kris, here is a bag for you,” and he gives the fucking bag to my mom. And it was a LEGO clutch. They were like ten grand, and you could never get one. And this was all Swarovski crystal with hand stones that was just a sample that never made it to production. So I go into the bathroom and start crying. I was like, Oh my God, she fully stole my life. She stole my whole day today! This was my biggest moment ever in fashion, with Carine, Riccardo, and Karl!”

-The Little Women reviews are really positive, with Variety saying “In terms of sheer logistics, Little Women marks a huge step forward for [Greta] Gerwig, who shows an aptitude for future studio projects without sacrificing her distinctive directorial voice.”

-Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson are still dating. And he’s still too old for her.

-The new Walking Dead spin-off is called World Beyond, and AMC someone convinced Julia Ormond to be part of it.

-This is terrible: K-pop singer Goo Ha-ra was found dead at her home over the weekend.

-This thread from a music writer who claims Amanda Palmer is obsessed with her is downright terrifying.

Jason Derulo broke the internet this weekend with this photo.  If he’s trying to redeem his rep after that terrible Cats trailer…it might be working.

-This is No Longer Us: Justin Hartley filed for divorce from his wife after two years of marriage.

-A new clip has been released for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
