Brie Larson Says Jennifer Lawrence & Emma Stone “Saved My Life”


Brie Larson is on the new cover of Vanity Fair, talking about her years of scraping by, the awards-season madness, and how having celeb friends like Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone (who she was introduced to by Woody Harrelson) keeps her sane.

Demi Lovato just got a big new lion tattoo that she is probably never, ever going to regret.

If it gets canceled, we’ll say ‘c—’ on television, and we’ll go be farmers.'”

John Boyega photobombed Star Wars fans for charity. These videos always make me giggle.

Serena Williams says her pregnancy announcement was a social media slip-up. She was taking photos for herself of her progress and she pressed “the wrong button.”

-There was a That Thing You Do reunion and it looked delightful.

Paris Jackson looks so much like Madonna in this Vanity Fair pic that it’s creeping me out a bit.

-This story about the late Jonathan Demme at the TIFF screening of Moonlight is lovely.

-I’m glad someone wrote about this because I’ve been thinking the same thing for weeks: Where the hell is the Wonder Woman promotion?? I feel like I’ve seen way more for the Justice League, and that comes out in November. WW is out in six weeks and it’s been crickets on the marketing front.

-I wholeheartedly agree with this article on how Rory Gilmore proves we need better fictional journalists.

-I love that Questlove just randomly makes a cameo during Lin‘s Drunk History ep (which airs tonight).

-Meanwhile, Hamilton hit a new record buy grossing the most amount of money in a week for Broadway. Great boycott, guys.

-Super Girl hits a new ratings high last night (for their CW run), but that was probably only because it was promoted as the start of the 4-show crossover, which only happened in the last 40 seconds of the episode. My Twitter TL was pressed.

Adam Driver‘s Interview chat with director Noah Baumbach is great, but the Trainspotting-inspired photo shoot that accompanies it is terrifying.

Ben McKenzie is engaged to his baby mama and Gotham costar Morena Baccarin.

Ariana Grande Defends Selena Gomez and Fellow Female Pop Stars


**NOTE: I”m on vacation for the next week so no updates until May 30th. Behave yourselves, kittens!***

-Damn Ariana Grande for continuing to do super feminist interviews and making me kinda love her. My world is askew.

-Not making nice with fellow pop stars in Demi Lovato in this new interview, in which she talks about Taylor Swift: “There are women that I don’t get along with, and that’s fine. My thing is, don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work. I have an immense amount of respect for women like Lena Dunham…or Beyonce, who make amazing political statements through their work.”

-We have now reached peak Leonardo DiCaprio.

-Speaking of odd talk show appearances, Dax Shepard told Jimmy Kimmel a story about jerking off into a plastic cup while in traffic after getting a vasectomy. Remind me again how private he and Kristen Bell are….

-I love how a bunch of publications are tearing down the men who are butthurt about the new Ghostbusters. Esquire’s piece is my favourite mic drop. Preach!

-Super private couple Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser dared to have baby a while ago and not tell us. But how are we supposed to judge her post-baby bod now?! (Also, I have a weird story about Kartheiser from when I was an extra on a movie. It involves spaghetti. I’ve already said too much.)

-Now it makes sense why Neighbors 2 is being praised by critics for its feminist slant; Lena Dunham consulted on the script.

-Here are the new shows you’re probably going to want to avoid this fall, judging by this week’s upfront presentations.

-Speaking of the upfronts, today was the CW’s turn. Supergirl is staying on Mondays (but how much they’ll get to use Calista Flockhart remains a question), and they’ve already confirmed a Supergirl, Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow mega-crossover (ugh). Weirdly, the new show that seemed to get the critics most hyped is their Archie adaptation Riverdale, which is being compared to Twin Peaks. Here are some of the new show trailers.

-When is Kate Hudson going to stop talking about her killer body? Just give me some sort of timetable I can look forward to.

-Here’s the trailer for Kristen Stewart’s Personal Shopper, which just debuted at Cannes.
