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.

Taylor Swift Butts Heads with ACLU

-Whoo. This story about Taylor Swift denouncing white supremacy in a letter that she demanded wouldn’t be published on copyright grounds sure is…something. Why is she flexing her legal muscle against some random blogger? Why won’t she just publicly say that she’s not down with white supremacists? I’m so confused.

George Clooney is refreshingly honest when asked why he doesn’t act much anymore: “Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f**king dollars. I don’t need money.”

Meghan Markle is moving to London. It’s all happening, people!

Will and Jada Smith gave Tyrese $5 million to ‘stay off the internet’ – which he promptly revealed on the internet.

-In a new interview with Howard Stern, Kelly Clarkson recalls a time when Avril Lavigne elbowed her at the VMAs when Clarkson was presenting Lavigne with an award. “She did it, but I don’t know if she felt bad about it, or, like, she didn’t mean to do it or what. But it felt purposeful.”

Tom Hanks helped a man pull off a surprise wedding proposal at the Texas Book Festival.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas engagement party was apparently “star-studded” except I don’t actually know any of these people. Well, except this guy.

Mariah Carey and her longtime manager have parted ways. Hmmm…there is a story there — and possibly a Brett Ratner connection.

-Is it weird that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are having date nights at Morton’s? That strikes me as place for rich old white dudes.

Kevin Spacey‘s agent and publicist has dropped him and Netflix says that if they go forward with House of Cards, it will be without him (though no one seems to be expecting it to finish out its final season).

-Also, people who worked on House Of Cards told Buzzfeed that Spacey‘s alleged behavior was common knowledge.

-Meanwhile, Spacey has entered the sex addiction rehab program at The Meadows clinic in Arizona. But is the counseling for sex addiction the same as counseling for assaulters?

-Check out this clip of Uma Thurman. When she ends up telling her story, she’s going to burn Hollywood down!

Julianna Margulies told a story about a horrific hotel room meeting she once had with Steven Seagal, saying “He was alone and he made sure that I saw his gun… I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room.”

Ben Affleck has updated his position on the scandal, saying he’ll donate Miramax residuals to charity and that he’s “looking at my own behavior and addressing that and making sure I’m part of the solution.” Too little, too late?

Alec Baldwin claims that Rose McGowan ‘delayed justice‘ by settling. Nice allyship, asshole.

-And just like clockwork, the backlash to all the sexual assault stories has begun, starting this this bullshit Hollywood Reporter story about a “witch hunt.” The idea that the LA Times and NYT and their lawyers didn’t fully vet all published allegations first is ridiculous. This is a much better take on how the mood in Hollywood has changed. So is this. And this.

-Queen Elizabeth II grapples with scandal after scandal in the trailer for The Crown’s second season.

Wentworth Miller is leaving the CW. I’m not surprised. After signing a contract that was supposed to span all of their superhero shows, he’s barely appeared in any of them.

Jimmy Fallon’s tapings have been canceled this week, following the passing of his mother Gloria.

-If you’re wondering why there may be less reviews of the new Star Wars movie than usual, it’s because journalists are boycotting Disney films, pledging solidarity with LA Times until Disney drops a ban on its access.

-Meanwhile, a report surfaced today that 20th Century Fox is in talks to sell most of the company to Disney. It sounds like the deal won’t go through, but the fact that one of the oldest studios may be giving up on movies is sure to shake Hollywood.

-I love that Crazy Rich Asians landed a EW cover!

-I was shocked when I read that Izzie would be returning to Grey’s Anatomy for the show’s 300th episode — and then I realized it would just be her “spirit.” No way Katherine Heigl is getting back on that set.

-That Stranger Things kid doesn’t owe anyone anything. Leave him alone.

-As expected, Thor: Ragnarok killed it at the box office this weekend, giving Marvel their 17th straight number one opening.

-This profile on SNL’s Aidy Bryant is wonderful.

-The Fifty Shades Freed final trailer shows Ana and Christian‘s honeymoon. Wait, she MARRIES that psycho? Oh girl, no.

Robin Thicke is now free to be “twerked upon” as much as he wants. After months of speculation and grossness, he and Paula Patton have announced their separation.

Oprah took her very first selfie and Idris Elba was in it, proving she’s totally got this internet thing down pat.

Alec Baldwin penned an epic rant in New York magazine titled “Good-bye, Public Life.” (It should have been titled “Goodbye, Any Pretense of Not Being an Asshole”.) He actually raises some good points, but then buries them in brattiness and bigotry. He claims he’s not a homophobe and realizes that he needs to be more careful with his word choice, and then he casually drops the word “tranny” like it’s NBD. He tries to make Shia LaBeouf seem like an entitled ass (which, no doubt, he is), but then he lets it slip that Shia showed up to work knowing all of his lines, while “I, however, do not learn my lines in advance.” Um, what? Isn’t that your job? And if you really want to walk away from the spotlight of public life, isn’t there a better way than penning a click-baity, troll-y cover story? Like maybe…just walking away?

Jessica Biel was photographed looking very non-pregnant, for those of you at home keeping score. She’s also scheduled to present at the Oscars on Sunday.

-The full list of Oscar presenters have been announced, and Biel isn’t the only head-scratcher. Zac Efron? Kate Hudson?

-Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel announced all the guests scheduled to appear on his post-Oscars show, and it sounds like it’s going to be stacked.

-So pretty much no one in America has seen this year’s best picture nominees. Captain Phillips was the most-watched one, and that was only seen by 15% of those polled.

Liam Neeson says Bono was really nice to his kids when Natasha Richardson died.

-Did the prospect of random drug testing cause Justin Bieber to reject a plea deal in his Miami Beach DUI case?

-But look, he’s recording a song with his mommy! That makes everything all better, right?

Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint had a hairy Harry Potter reunion.

-It looks like Josh Brolin‘s assistant has been upgraded to his girlfriend.

Anna Kendrick (wearing a very cute romper — words I rarely put together) helped pal Miles Teller celebrate his birthday in Vegas.

-Aw nuts. Harold Ramis has died. Let’s all raise a glass of ectoplasm and listen to “I’ve Got You, Babe” on repeat.

-I’m glad to see Bill Murray put out a statement about Ramis. The pair reportedly hadn’t spoken since a falling out on the set of Groundhog Day.

-This is admirable: Ukrainian born actress Milla Jovovich is raising money to help the victims of violence in Kiev.

January Jones shared a photo of her 9-year-old self on Instagram and it made me almost like her.

-When I heard this weekend that NBC was planning to bring back Heroes, I assumed it was a joke. How is it not a joke?!

-In other NBC news, Jennifer Lopez is coming back to TV as a single mother cop. Let’s hope it’s more Out of Sight and less Gigli.

Julianne Moore says she does her own housework, so there.

-A girl from Pretty Little Liars is engaged to a guy from Suits. Please don’t make me learn their names.

-Oopsie! Avatar star Sam Worthington was arrested in NYC after allegedly punching a photographer. It sounds like the paparazzo first kicked Sam’s girlfriend in the shins, though.

-Warner Brothers seems to realize that Veronica Mars will probably do better on VOD than at the box office, so they’re making the film available as a digital download and rental the same day it opens in theatres. That pretty much never happens.

-Scandal returns on Thursday. Celebrate by staring a Kerry Washington’s belly bump.

-Speaking of Kerry‘s belly bump, she had a baby shower at Shonda Rhimes‘ house.

Amanda Seyfried has landed the role of the female lead in Ted 2.

-Meanwhile Mila Kunis, who was in the first Ted movie, is busy getting old-timey in her new ad for Jim Bean.

David O. Russell says he accidentally spoiled Anna Karenina for Jennifer Lawrence. I did the exact same thing once to a coworker. Who knew 140-year-old classics need to come with spoiler warnings?

Seth Meyers‘ Late Night hosting gig starts tonight.

-I’ve mentioned before how I just don’t buy the “True Detective is the best show ever!” mantra that’s floating around (I was momentarily onboard last week and then I saw the latest episode and have jumped back off the train). However, I’m LOVING all the thoughtful analysis being written about the show’s depiction of women. The New Yorker’s Emily Nussbaum called it out in an article today, which was posted at pretty much the exact time as Slate’s Willa Paskin’s piece about how the show’s objectification is intentional. And that led to a bunch of other smart TV critics throwing in their (very eloquent) two cents, either defending the show, critiquing it, or pleading with us all to hold our judgment until the season finale airs in a few weeks. This might be the first time I’m more entertained by reading about a show than actually watching it.

-The first full trailer for Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley on HBO has landed.
