Richard Madden is on a promo blitz for Rocketman, which includes an interview with Elton John. He also did an interview with British Vogue, in which he talked about feeling insecure about his body when shooting sex scenes (“I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same s**t that we’re against'”) and how he’d be down with playing “a Bond boy.”

-Woahhh nelly! According to the Daily Beast, lawyers for Prince William are scrambling to suppress reports of his affairs in the press, claiming publications are violating his “human rights.”

Scarlett Johansson released a statement after being chased by the paparazzi following a talk show appearance with her Avengers costars yesterday. “After leaving Jimmy Kimmel, I was followed by five cars full of men with blacked out windows who were running red lights and putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk so they could follow me to find out where I was staying and subsequently stalk me and my young daughter for the duration of my stay.” She had her driver take her to a police station until it was safe to go home.

-Yesterday, Felicity Huffman was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and will plead guilty. She told the court, “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.” And today, Lori Loughlin was indicted on money laundering in addition to her previous mail fraud charge.

-In other court news, Smallville’s Allison Mack tearfully pleaded guilty to racketeering charges yesterday.

-This is the second interview in a month in which Julianna Margulies talked about not appearing on The Good Fight because they wouldn’t pay her the same rate she got on The Good Wife. I don’t disagree with her but … this feels odd.

-The Bold Type is back tonight and while I like that show, I’m bummed that it sounds like the worst character is still terrible.

-Netflix’s originals are breaking through with subscribers, but shows they don’t own–some of which could soon exit the service–remains very popular.

Kanye West Drops Manager, Tweets Trump Support

-It’s not unusual to watch Kanye West tweet batshit stuff, but today seemed a little more out of control than usual. On the heels of multiple stories out of People that he’s had “explosive fights” with Kris Jenner (which she denied) and that he “seems to be on the edge,” Kanye tweeted about dropping manager Scooter Braun —  and then he and Donald Trump engaged in a Twitter lovefest. Kim Kardashian was quick to defend him.

-Meanwhile, Kanye loses 9.2 MILLION followers in less than 10 minutes after posting a photo of him wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

-Even Kris seems to have lost control of the narrative. What’s happening?!?

-This interview between Denzel Washington and Michael B Jordan is a delight. (“How old are you?” “31.” “Man, I got underwear older than that.”) Also, I find it super refreshing for a young actor like Jordan to talk about strategy and wanting to break into international markets.

-Four decades later there was an arrest in the Golden State Killer case, which was based on renewed interest in the case thanks to the book written by Michelle McNamara, true crime writer and Patton Oswalt‘s late wife.

Danai Gurira stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk Infinity War and shot down talk that an all-female Avengers is in the works. “I think it is a rumor, but the cool thing is that it’s showing there’s this hunger for that type of thing.”

-The Infinity War press tour continues to be a treasure trove of delightfulness. I especially like the interview combo of Letitia Wright, Sebastian Stan and Tom Hiddleston. Letitia taught them how to Milly Rock, and Tom schooled them on the origins of the slang term “stan”.

Allison Mack attempted to recruit several actresses for NXIVM – including Emma Watson and Rashida Jones.

-I missed these photos earlier of Damian Lewis as Rob Ford. I wish I still missed them.

-Despite the backlash, Joss Whedon still thinks his leaked Wonder Woman script was “great.”

Clayne Crawford tried to explain away his Lethal Weapon reprimands. It’s interesting that his costars/crew don’t seem to be piping up to publicly defend or support him, isn’t it? Deadline is even reporting that he and co-lead Damon Wayans have “stopped speaking to each other.

-Man, the more I read about the Universal FanCon fiasco the angrier I get.

-Life imitates art for Kevin Hart in J Cole’s new music video.

-This story continues to be NUTS: Smallville actress Allison Mack was arrested this morning. She and Keith Raniere, of the NXIVM cult, were charged with “sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.”

-This Busy Phillips profile is a wonderful read. She talks about gaining fame through her Instagram Stories, her friendship with Michelle Williams, and the flack she got for posting on the anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death. “I’ve never even really spoken about it, because I never would want to have it be misconstrued in that way, but it was the ten-year anniversary, and…It’s just been a long ten years, you know?”

Jimmy Fallon got choked up while paying tribute to Tina Fey: “Today, I have two daughters and my hope for them is that they grow up to be leaders like you, and that they’ll be as fearless and confident in their strengths as you are.”
