Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Her Wedding Album

-On GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow shared 47 photos from her wedding to Brad Falchuk — but she didn’t caption any of the ones that feature famous people so you have to do some guessing. That’s clearly Robert Downey Jr giving a toast in #37, and Rob Lowe cutting a rug in #44.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus had a baby!

-This week’s SNL promo featured Pete Davidson making a joke about quickie engagements and Ariana Grande was NOT having it. She’s since deleted her tweets but my timeline was wild last night…

-Meanwhile, I’m very much looking forward to seeing Maggie Rogers as the musical guest. “Alaska” gets played on repeat A LOT on my phone. Here’s a recap of her best songs.

Alec Baldwin continues to behave exactly how you’d assume he would. He was arrested today for allegedly punching a man over a parking space.

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio released a voting PSA.

-Look, I think Rebel Wilson‘s rom-com spoof Isn’t It Romantic looks super fun and I adore the premise. But she really, really shouldn’t have said on Ellen, “I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.”  She can’t just erase the history of actresses who’ve starred in body-positive romances, including Queen Latifah, Mo’Nique, Toni Colette, Nia Vardalos and Ricki Lake.

Julia Roberts’ Homecoming premieres on Amazon today, and critics are in love.

-I adore the premise from the new AMC show being exec-produced by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Kevin Can F*** Himself is told from the POV of a typical “sitcom wife,” described as “a beauty paired with a less attractive, dismissive, caveman-like husband who gets to be a jerk because she’s a nag and he’s ‘funny.'” *grabby hands*

Goddamit, Hugh Jackman. You were supposed to be one of the good ones.

-I’m not sure why Amy Schumer is showing off her belly bump but here it is.

Les Mooves is calling himself “retired.” That’s one way to spin it…

-Next week we’ll find out who the new People’s Sexiest Man Alive is going to be. The Bradley Cooper speculation is strong which — if it happens — will be interesting to watch thanks to his new, reluctant movie star persona.

Tiffany Haddish is the latest celeb to enjoy Buzzfeed’s puppy interview.

Aisha Tyler recently posted a kissy photo with Emily Bett Rickards and now there’s lots of trashy stories about how they’re dating. I’d love it if it were true, but I follow both of them on Instagram and that gang is always kissing their friendsLike, a lot.

-Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse finds romance in the hospital in the trailer for Five Feet Apart.

Zendaya Lands Her First Vogue Cover

Zendaya looks stunning on the cover of Vogue’s July issue, in which she talks about making demands to Disney execs when she was only 16, and learning trapeze for her new movie.

-THR’s TV Comedy Actress roundtable features Emmy Rossum, Issa Rae, America Ferrera, Pamela Adlon, Minnie Driver, and Katherine Hahn. Among the best bits: Rossum says William H. Macy supported her most during her equal pay fight, Adlon remembered having a similar battle on Californication, Driver talked about directors building ditches for her to stand in when kissing shorter costars instead of just making the actor stand on an apple box, and Hahn talked about always getting typecast as the BFF and pitched a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-type movie where she and Judy Greer are the leads, and every so often you see Kate Hudson running around in the background. (I would watch that.)

Beyonce might be having her twins right now and the internet is melting down.

Jessica Chastain would like everyone to stop looking at her wedding photos, which were taken by paps in a helicopter. Fair enough (though I’ll be interested to see if she shares them herself eventually, or sells them to a pub).

-I posted a few days ago about Jake Johnson‘s awesome story about Tom Cruise being the nicest guy ever. Here are 18 more.

-On the flip side, did he have too much say in The Mummy script?

Elizabeth Banks really stepped in it yesterday when she used an acceptance speech to call out legendary director Steven Spielberg for failing to make female-lead films. Shari Belafonte pointed out The Color Purple, but Banks simply “moved on.” This white feminism bullshit is getting worse.

-Update: Elizabeth tweeted an apology. She’s a producer and a director now; lets hope she learns from this and hires all types of women for her next projects.

-Speaking of famous white women being woke-light, the NYT profile on Katy Perry did her no favours. The writer calls her out repeatedly, saying “in our interview, she proclaimed herself devoted to dialogue but spoke in a near uninterrupted monologue.” It’s like when DeRay Mckesson asked her about cultural appropriation during her live-stream and she talked for two minutes straight but never actually apologized.

-This is depressing: the Cosby jury is deadlocked. They deliberated for 30 hours over 4 days before telling the judge they couldn’t reach a verdict. He’s ordered them back for more deliberations.

-Making a Murderer fans: Steven Avery‘s lawyer says she thinks the victim’s ex-boyfriend killed her.

Rebel Wilson won her defamation case against a magazine publisher: “I had to stand up to a bully.”

-Sweet! The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira is joining the cast of Avengers: Infinity War.

-I can’t believe I somehow missed this last week: Tobey Maguire and ex-wife Jennifer Meyer attended their daughter’s school production of Beauty & the Beast, and all their A-list friends came, including Leonardo DiCaprio (with his wolf pack), Courteney Cox and Gwyneth Paltrow. I bet the other kids felt like crap when only their grandparents showed up for them.

-The Wolf Pack has moved on to NYC and picked up Orlando Bloom.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she’s moving away from acting to focus on Goop. So I guess I’m moving towards ridiculing her full time.

DeMario Jackson broke his silence over those Bachelor In Paradise allegations, saying “my character has been assassinated.”

-Also, this article on drunken hook-ups on reality TV is unnerving. “There are implied incentives available to cast members who are down to fool around.”

Karrueche Tran has beeng granted a five-year restraining order against Chris Brown.

Ryan Seacrest is on the cover of THR with the crazy story of the secret, heated negotiations to bring him back to the rebooted American Idol. After blowing the record-breaking $25 million to hire Katy Perry, producers went back to Seacrest with half of their original offer and things got tense.

-I really like both Chrissy Teigen and Colton Haynes, but these interviews are way too TMI.

Josh Brolin is getting seriously buff for Deadpool 2.

-How the hell is Johnny Depp still getting handed first-look deals? How many bombs is he going to have to have before Hollywood moves on?

Elle Macpherson has split from her billionaire husband.

-National treasure Diane Keaton candidly listed the celebs she is and isn’t friends with.

-I watched The Leftovers series finale a week ago and avoided articles/podcasts up until now because I wanted to have time to digest it. (I’ve changed my mind three times since then about whether or not I believe Nora’s story, but I’m holding firm in my first impression that it was a near-perfect finale.) Now that I’m looking up what was written about it, I’m astounded by Vulture’s deep dive. Their writer was basically embedded with the show for months to create this feature. It verges a little into ‘how the sausage is made’ territory, but even if you’ve never seen the show, this is a great read for anyone interested in how TV works.

-Rough Night is only at 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it got good reviews from two critics I usually agree with, so that’s promising.

-This is an interesting look at how much Netflix is paying for new TV shows (word is that they’re investing $4 per subscriber on original content.) Basically, they “must spend like a drunken sailor to compete with TV networks.”

-Do NOT put Lindsay Lohan and Jane Austen in the same headline, People! Don’t you effing dare!

Aisha Tyler emotionally announced on today’s show that she’s leaving The Talk: “I just realized I had to let something go”. Can’t say I’m surprised. She’s at Seacrest-levels of work, with Criminal Minds, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Archer, her podcast, her cocktail company and hitting the festival circuit with her directorial debut. I don’t even know if I’ve ever watched an episode of The Talk but when she started sob-heaving in that clip I got teary.

-The new Friends From College trailer stars Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage and Keegan-Michael Key.

Castle’s Nathan Fillion Breaks Silence on Stana Katic’s Exit

-Why does it feel like a network show is imploding every week these days? Today, it’s Castle’s turn. I don’t watch the show but even I’d heard rumblings about the long-rumoured onset tensions. Now the lead actress has been let go (add her to the ever-growing fired actress pile!) and though the official explanation is “financial reasons,” even the trades are mentioning her reported troubles with Nathan Fillion (who didn’t really help matters with his delayed, impersonal statement about it — especially compared with her other coworkers’ responses.)

-Meanwhile, Us Weekly says things got so bad between Fillion and Stana Katic last season that the network made them go to “couples counseling.” It clearly didn’t work.

Jared Leto knew better to pull any of his stupid Joker bullshit on Viola Davis during the Suicide Squad shoot.

-Wayment — are we actually supposed to *feel bad* for Chris Brown when watching this new documentary?! Hard pass.

Prince Harry and Prince William visited the Star Wars 8 set and it was ADORABLE!

-Meanwhile, Force Awakens favourites  Oscar Isaac and BB-8 reunited for charity. Also adorbs.

Joss Whedon is very sorry for making everyone think he hated the last Avengers movie. (He still hasn’t apologized for his bitch-flounce off Twitter, tho.)

-Allow Taylor Swift to take you on a tour of her Beverly Hills home while talking about cats, cakes, terrible cocktails (vodka Diet Coke? Jesus.) during Vogue’s latest 73 Questions video.

Stephen and Robbie Amell’s crowdfunding movie just passed the million-dollar mark. That makes me feel better about not contributing yet. I mean, I will eventually because I’m not a monster but still…

Patrick Stewart makes a better woman than I could ever hope to be. Depressing but unsurprising.

-Buzzfeed titled this article “This selfie of Milo Ventimiglia proves he’s still the hottest of Rory Gilmore’s boyfriends” and my entire Twitter TL was like:
-Congrats to Oliva Wilde and Jason Sudeikis, who are having another baby.

Michael Strahan is leaving Live with Kelly and Michael. Can someone other than me break this news to my mother? I will pay you in doughnuts.

Aisha Tyler talks about dealing with sexism and getting good advice from Jennifer Aniston in this new article about her crowdfunding efforts to direct. She also revealed on The Talk that she separated from her husband last year but is trying to shelter him from any public fallout because she’s a wonderful human being.

-Speaking of wonderful human beings, Tracy Morgan canceled a comedy show in Mississippi over their anti-LGBTQ law — and he did a special comedy show for the staff of the hospital that saved his life.

-“I’m a little gay & there’s a gay James,” says James Franco. Um, ok.

-Dafuq is going on with Elizabeth Banks‘ Power Rangers costume? The whole point of this movie is nostalgia so of course, just go ahead and change everything.

-I love that Emily Nussbaum just won Pulitzer for TV criticism. I’ve been reading her since she first posted an awesome defense of Sex and the City and I saw her moderate Mindy Kaling’s panel at the Vulture fest. She’s excellent.

-Holy crap, guys. NBC is so rough right now that The Mysteries of Laura looks like it will make it to a third season. How?!

Emilia Clarke recruited the Broad City girls in her mission to “free the P” on Game of Thrones.

Jennifer Garner‘s 44th birthday party included a marching band. I like her style!

Stephen Colbert mocked Johnny Deep and Amber Heard‘s strange apology with his own apology to Australia.

-Vulture has a great piece on how every [white] actor you love will eventually make a superhero movie.

-Like us, Michelle Williams likes to imagine a Dawson’s Creek reunion. But also like us, she doesn’t think it’ll ever happen.

Matt Damon‘s return as Jason Bourne gets teased in two new videos.
