Adam Driver Is a Sexy Centaur

Adam Driver‘s Burberry campaign is a LOT. In the video, he swims with a horse and eventually becomes a centaur. In the stills, he looks like he’s posing for the cover of a book that I would definitely read.

-Someone was brave enough to ask Matt Damon about Bennifer during his Stillwater press tour. “He deserves every happiness in the world. I’m glad for both of them.” That’s very nice while also effectively conveying a “don’t ask me again” undertone.

-When asked by another outlet about the latest photos, he said “All the pictures that have come out are the same ones that you see. I don’t know anything you don’t know.” Yeah, he’s done.

Lorde did Vogue’s 73 Questions, but at NYC’s Botanical Gardens instead of her house.

-There’s been rumours for a while that Lucy Lui and Bill Murray got into it on the Charlie’s Angels set (which resurfaced a few months ago when a PA from the movie tweeted that Murray rewrote a scene and told her “I don’t know what you’re complaining about. I gave you more lines. I mean… look who you’re in with here. You’re TV… and this is the big league”).  In a new podcast, she confirmed they clashed on set. “Some of the language was inexcusable and unacceptable, and I was not going to just sit there and take it. So, yes, I stood up for myself, and I don’t regret it. Because no matter how low on the totem pole you may be or wherever you came from, there’s no need to condescend or to put other people down. And I would not stand down, and nor should I have.”

-This is a good piece on how women and gay men are dominating hip hop right now, but getting little respect.

Mena Suvari wrote a memoir about her rough go of things in Hollywood as she was coming up, and features a lot of older men using her when she was she was just a teen.

Paris Hilton shows off her culinary skills, or lack thereof, in the trailer for her upcoming Netflix series. I’m not really sure what demo this is aimed at (does anyone even remember “that’s hot”?) but it looks fun enough.

Hilton also denied rumours that she’s pregnant.

-I had no idea Zach Braff directed episodes of Ted Lasso.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher appeared on Dax Shepard‘s podcast and they all said that they don’t wash their whole bodies when they shower. What? They also said they only bathe their children if there’s visible dirt on them. No really, what??

Britney Spears‘ mom Lynne spoke out about the singer’s ongoing conservatorship battle in new court documents, saying Jamie “is incapable of putting his daughter’s interests ahead of his own” and that Britney has “fear and hatred” towards him.

Britney, meanwhile, has posted more topless pics on Instagram. I still don’t understand anything that’s happening with her feed.

-An actor who was too old to be playing a teen is defending another actor who is too old to be playing a teen.

-I totally forgot that Comic-Con was happening and I barely heard anything about it. Here’s the biggest (though not really) reveals.

Succession Is Coming Back This Fall

-It’s Logan v. Kendall in the new Succession season 3 teaser. I cannot wait!

-I’m underwhelmed by Gwen Stefani’s Vera Want dress. Her original pink dress was just too high a bar to clear. At least she went non-traditional for the reception. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Carson Daly.

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are PDAing their way through Italy. Good for them.

-Every E. Alex Jung is a must-read. But this one on Jennifer Coolridge? Its a must-read-right-now. It’s filled with tidbits like this: “I always said I was Muffin Hemingway [at the clubs] if I couldn’t get in. One time I got thrown out of a club because I was behaving badly, and they said, ‘Don’t ever come back here, Muffin!'”

-Congrats to Being Human and Hawaii 5-0 star Meghan Rath, who just revealed her pregnancy.

Elizabeth Hurley’s son Damian says he’s “Grateful for my beautiful family, today and every day” — despite being cut of out his late father’s $330m will.

-I just finished Cruel Summer a few days ago, which was a fun, twisty little show. The second season will move ahead without creator Bert V. Royal. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he quit his Freeform series after clashing with an exec last summer just after the pilot finished shooting.

-This is a very well-written review of the Gossip Girl reboot, which says the show wants to start a revolution but has no idea how. I also like this one, which reminds us it’s harder than it looks to make really good trash.

Seth Rogen wins Twitter this week with this tweet: “Once I was in the spa in a hotel in Vegas getting a massage. When I finished I turned over and to my shock Paul Rudd was massaging me. He saw me go in and convinced the masseuse to let him take over, thinking I’d notice immediately. I didn’t, and Paul did the entire rest of it.”

-This seems to be implying that Jennifer Lawrence is pregnant? I kind of thought she already was, but that was me mixing her up with her BFF Emma Stone.

Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”

-Her long-time attorney (who was chosen for her), Sam Ingham, is also stepping down.

-I don’t watch Top Chef but by most accounts this season was one of its best, so it sucks that the winner is now surrounding by controversy.

More Ted Lasso Is On Its Way

-Ted Lasso is coming back way earlier than I expected — July 23! Here’s the season 2 trailer.  Rewatching this show got me through the worst of the pandemic (so far).

Billie Eilish might be dating actor Matthew Tyler Vorce.

Demi Lovato apologized for going apeshit on a frozen yogurt shop. She had called them out for their sugar-free, dairy-free, and low-fat options, calling them a “diet culture vulture”. They responded that those were options for customers with health restrictions such as vegans, celiacs, and diabetics. It was such a bizarre story to begin with, but the optics of going after a small business right now didn’t help.

-TikTok Star Bryce Hall has been sued for assault and battery after an altercation at an LA restaurant was caught on camera.

Pete Davidson made it clear to Jake Paul that he’s not a fan.

-The cast of The Good Place (minus Kristen Bell) had a sleepover.

E. Alex Jung profiles are always a must-read, but his conversation with Mads Mikkelsen is an instant classic. Mikklesen talks about the Hannibal finale (“We actually did a couple of takes of the very last scene where we were looking at each other, and it was a little too obvious — it was almost a kiss. Me and Hugh [Dancy] were like, ‘Why not? We have a couple of takes. Let’s do one. It might be cool’…Bryan [Fuller] loved it, but he was like, ‘Too much, guys. It’s too obvious'”), what it was like to become recognizable in Denmark after playing a TV cop (“Since then, I’ve never bought a normal Coca-Cola. It’s always like, “Here’s your cola, Master Mads,” or “Get your fucking Coke, and get out of my shop.” There’s no neutral Coca-Cola anymore”), taking Rihanna‘s fake nails from the set of the “Bitch Better Have My Money” video (When we were done, I was like, “Are you done with them? Can I have some of them? I have a few friends who’re going to be so jealous when I show them this'”), and possibly the best career advice I’ve ever heard (“My approach to what I do in my job — and it might even be the approach to my life — is that everything I do is the most important thing I do…That means I will be ambitious with my job and not with my career. That’s a very big difference, because if I’m ambitious with my career, everything I do now is just stepping-stones leading to something — a goal I might never reach, and so everything will be disappointing. But if I make everything important, then eventually it will become a career”).

Julia Roberts dances it out in her new Chopard ad.

-Game of Thrones’ Iron Anniversary seems to be an attempt to reverse the bitter taste the series finale left fans two years ago.

Kate Winslet‘s new HBO show Mare of Easttown debuted to strong ratings. I’m glad; I dug it.

Kim Kardashian freaked out when she found out she was an inspiration for Bridgerton’s wardrobe — and then quickly tried to finagle a set visit. I would too.
