Mindy Kaling Covers Shape

Mindy Kaling baby weight Shape Magazine

-I love that Mindy Kaling is Shape’s latest cover model — which isn’t a typical choice for them. I skimmed over the stuff about losing the baby weight, but she has some cute nuggets about motherhood: “What’s great for me is that my doctor told me that incessant chatter is good for a baby, and I’ve lived my whole life waiting to have a captive audience. So, I spend the days narrating to her. I’m constantly doing voice-over for her, as I did in The Mindy Project. Honestly, I feel like her first words are going to be, ‘Just stop. Please!'”

Dylan Sprouse is out here coming for Jared Leto, proving once again that he’s the superior Sprouse brother. And Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took it further, tweeting “he starts at 18 on the internet?” Oh SHIT!

-Lethal Weapon producers reportedly approached  Karl Urban and Johnny Knoxville (both passed) before turning to Seann William Scott, who was originally offered and passed on the role two years ago.

Thandie Newton won the Cannes Solo premiere red carpet in this custom Vivienne Westwood dress that featured  black characters in the Star Wars universe — modeled from photos from her personal collection of action figures.

-Fashion drama is the best drama. Amal Clooney reportedly made Tom Ford mad by not wearing his dress at the MET gala arrivals — but opting to wear it later that night, which means that another A-lister won’t get to debut it at a future red carpet event.

-Those rumours about Donald Glover getting his own Lando movie are not true…yet.

-This Instagram story of Fergie having to take the subway because of a rainstorm is hilarious because it’s presented like she’s the first person who’s ever braved public transit.

-I gotta say, I did not expect so many Mulroney kids to be in the royal wedding party.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool took over Stephen Colbert’s monologue last night.

-This “bad fan” thread between TV critics on The Americans really captured what I am feeling. I know it’s bad to *want* them to end the show with Elizabeth and Phillip getting away with it, but that’s where I am.

CBS responded to Pauley Perrette’s tweets claiming she was physically assaulted while on NCIS: “Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”

Bryan Fuller slammed the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer for ignoring Freddie Mercury‘s sexuality and AIDS battle. He’s not wrong.

This non-review of Lars Von Trier‘s new film by a critic who walked out of it at Cannes confirmed that I will never, ever see it.

Christina Aguilera and Demi Lovato released a new collab any instead of it being a bop it’s … this.

-The second season of 13 Reasons Why is NOT getting good reviews. I’m ok with that. I just don’t think I can spend any more time in that world.

Stephen Amell took his daughter to Frozen on Broadway, and since his former Arrow costar’s wife plays Anna, she got some extra facetime. The kid decided to use it in the cutest possible way.

-The latest trailer for Mission Impossible: Fallout shows off an insane skydiving stunt.

-This trailer for Destination Wedding, which basically consists of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves snarking at each other in Paso Robles wine country, looks like the perfect movie and I will not be convinced otherwise!

 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Canceled by Fox

brooklyn-nine-nine-canceled

-It’s killing season in TV land this week. Fox just canned Brooklyn Nine-Nine (nooo!!!), The Mick and Last Man on Earth — but weirdly, they have room for a dumb Tim Allen sitcom. They still haven’t announced the fate of Lethal Weapon (I’m still shook about how bad an actor’s behaviour must have been to get thrown off a show the network wanted to renew. Actors behaving badly is the norm, so it must have been REALLY bad).  Over on NBC, Law & Order: SVU, Blindspot and the Chicago shows will survive but there’s still no word on Timeless.

-I don’t know why Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt did a couples photo shoot, but I’m not complaining.

-This was such a good troll for Veronica Mars fans…

Amal Clooney was so worried her Met Gala dress would rip, she changed in the gift shop. Seems like a lot of work for a not-great dress.

-So we’re in full Georgina Chapman comeback mode, right? First Scarlett Johannson wears Marchesa to the Met gaga, and now Vogue is giving her a soft-focus profile.

-In response to the profile, Yashar Ali wrote a rebuttal for HuffPo: “I’ve spoken to over a dozen survivors of Weinstein’s sexual predation about Chapman and all of them surprisingly said they believed she was aware, in some form, of Weinstein’s behavior. Two of them told me that Weinstein made misogynistic remarks to them in front of Chapman and she did not react in any way.”

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have split after nearly two years of dating.

-People keep trying to put Justin Theroux and Emma Stone together. I’m going to continue to cling to a blind item I read that said she had no interest in dating him. I’m CLINGING to it!

-Hey Sylvester Stallone, your racism is showing.

Jennifer Garner made a music video about being a mom for Ellen. I don’t get it.

-I liked this interview with Nick Offerman: “After Parks and Rec, the parts coming my way were overweight men in briefs, crying.”

Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon faced off in a fast dance dance off!

-In an interview with Lana Del Rey for Elle, Kendall Jenner says it was “weird” when her younger sister had a baby before her.

Chris Brown is being accused of hosting a party at his L.A. home where a woman claims she was repeatedly raped by two of his friends.

-Spotify has removed R. Kelly music from its playlists, citing new hate content and hateful conduct policy. Now Sony and RCA need to drop Kelly from its roster.

-Writers for the original Roseanne series say they’re struggling to reconcile the character they wrote with the reboot’s new, Trump-loving character who jokes that her Muslim neighbors’ pile of fertilizer in their yard means they’re making a bomb. “I don’t recognize that character.”

-I really, really don’t want Roseanne to attempt to do a #MeToo episode.

-I kind of love that Jessica Chastain is walking the walk. She’s producing and starring in 355, a female spy movie with Penélope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Lupita N’yongo and Fan Bingbing.

-Watch Deadpool apologize to David Beckham for insulting his voice in the first movie.

-I love this: Patty Jenkins may earn nine times her Wonder Woman salary for the sequel, according to Variety.

-I guess I’m in the minority but I really enjoyed I Feel Pretty. Greta Gerwig did not.

-Watch John Cho‘s frantic hunt for his missing daughter in the first Searching trailer, also starring Debra Messing.

 

George and Amal Clooney’s Twins Have Arrived

George and Amal Clooney‘s welcomed a boy and a girl: Ella and Alexander. It crushed my fantasy that they’d arrive on the same day as Beyonce’s twins, but at least the official statement is cute: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

Gwyneth Paltrow finally admits the truth about Goop: “I don’t know what the f*ck we talk about.”

Rihanna has the best response for body shamers.

-The cast of This is Us were on Billy on the Street. I like the guy who didn’t recognize them but still insisted on hitting on Mandy Moore.

-Oh god. The Vulture movie critic who wrote that gross Wonder Woman review posted a response to the controversy, and it’s even worse. He quotes a female colleague who says women only hated his review because it was mixed and we wanted a rave. Um, no. I don’t care if his review was negative, I just wanted one that wasn’t sexist and referred to the lead character as a “babe” who cause “slobbering” with her “mouthiness.” But instead of trying to learn from it and maybe understand how his words came across in the context of this film, he double-downed with a mansplaining, patronizing followup.

-In happier news, does Wonder Woman have a real shot at a major category Oscar nominations?

-Prospects for this weekend’s Mummy reboot are growing dimmer in the face of Wonder Woman’s success. I don’t hate that.

Keshia Knight Pulliam (who played Rudy on The Cosby Show) accompanied Bill Cosby on his first day of trial yesterday.

The Weeknd and Selena Gomez had a date night in NYC so I guess that’s still a thing.

-Meanwhile, Selena reportedly approves of Taylor Swift‘s boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

-This is a good article on how it’s virtually impossible to figure out which shows will get cancelled these days.

Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor share Moulin Rouge memories in this Actors on Actors clip. She also addresses Big Little Lies Season 2: “It was pretty finite. There’s no story. There’s absolutely no prospects right now.”

-Garbage singer Shirley Manson remains awesome: “I thought I was ancient at 40, but now I’m 50 and I realize I was really just a young woman.”

-US networks really, really need to stop trying to remake Misfits. Just watch the British original on Netflix.

-I will always read articles in which crisis PR experts assess the fallout of celebrity scandal. Today it’s on Bill Maher.

-Meanwhile, here’s a good look at why comedians are being forced to update their acts.

-See Paul Bettany as the Unabomber in the trailer for Manhunt.
