Amber Heard

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: New Parents?

-The Daily Mail is reporting that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have welcomed a new baby following a “super-secret pregnancy” — and so far, there’s been no denials. If true, the timing suggests she was pregnant when those photos of him looking cozy with his costar surfaced in Nov.

-Speaking of surprising baby news, Nicki Minaj is pregnant. I love every one of her announcement photos.

Kanye West hosted the first campaign event for his bewildering presidential run over the weekend, and it was predictably messy. He broke down in tears, said his dad wanted to abort him, claimed that he and Kim Kardashian considered not having North, and said Harriet Tubman never actually freed slaves.

-People reports the Kim is “furious” he discussed North.

-A hostess at a fancy NYC restaurant posted a TikTok rating celebrities guests she’s encountered. The Hadid sisters, Beyonce and Josh Peck got 10/10 for being incredibly kind, while Kylie Jenner got 2/10 for tipping $20 on a $500 bill, and Hailey Bieber got 3.5/10 for being “not nice.” (Hailey has since tweeted an apology.)

Amber Heard gave testimony to the British High Court today that she was afraid her ex-husband Johnny Depp was going to kill her, saying “Some incidents were so severe that I was afraid he was going to kill me, either intentionally or just by losing control and going too far. He explicitly threatened to kill me many times, especially later in our relationship.”

-She also said he was irrationally jealous of her costars and had nasty nicknames for them, including Leo ‘pumpkin-head’ DiCaprio, Channing ‘potato-head’ Tatum and Jim ‘turd’ Sturgess’.

August Alsina is milking every last drop of fame he can from his affair with Jada Pinkett Smith. He just dropped a new song entitled — you guessed it! — “Entanglements.”

Lindsay Lohan, Nancy Meyers, Dennis Quaid and more came together for a Parent Trap reunion. She looks and sounds really, really good.

-I’m sick of Zoom videos, but I’ll still be tuning into the Happy Endings reunion, which airs tonight at 7pm ET on YouTube.

John Oliver is attempting to quash coronavirus conspiracy theories by enlisting celebrities.

Mykki Blanco alleges that Universal Music Group still hasn’t paid them for their contribution to Teyana Taylor’s “WTP” some two years after the track came out.

-Vanity Fair’s Mo Ryan just dropped another stunner of a TV expose. She talked to 30 people who worked with Peter Lenkov, former showrunner of Hawaii Five-0, Magnum P.I., and MacGyver about alleged bullying, abuse & other serious problems they encountered. Kudos to McGyver star Lucas Till for being one of the ones to go on the record about Lenkov’s alleged bullying and body-shaming, despite what that might mean for his career. “I’ve never worked this hard in my life, and I am fine with hard work,” said Till. “But the way Peter treats people is just unacceptable. I was suicidal that first year on the show, because of the way he made me feel. But the way he’s treated the people around me—that’s just my breaking point.” Through his lawyer, Lenkov denied all allegations.

-Some are saying the only reason he was fired is because CBS knew this article was coming.

-Not surprising: Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet isn’t going to make its August release date after all. Sort of surprising: when announcing it, Warner Bros put out a press release that included 9 “off the record” paragraphs warning/scolding media about their coverage. Um,  “off the record” only exists if both parties agree to it beforehand, not if you send an unsolicited email. Secondly, nothing in a press release can be off the record — the whole point of press releases is to make a public announcement!

-I really like Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress.

-Disney+ released the trailer for Black Is King, the new Lion King-inspired “visual album”/film written and directed by Beyoncé that comes out later this month. It features cameos from Kelly Rowland, Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jay-Z.

Charlize Theron’s Backyard Photo Shoot

Charlize Theron photographed herself (with the help of her kids) for EW’s new digital cover to promote Netflix’s The Old Guard, which drops this weekend. I’m mesmerized by every single video in this article.

-This new interview with Kanye West seems to indicate that the man is not well. It is totally unhinged. If you don’t want to give it clicks, The Root did a recap of it.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are trying to be more cordial coparents — though Pitt’s relationship with Maddox is reportedly “non-existent.”

-Clear my schedule — Mariah Carey is releasing a memoir!

-Day two of Johnny Depp‘s libel trial against The Sun saw the actor denying allegations he hit Amber Heard for laughing at his “Wino Forever” tattoo. He also dismissed the texts he sent to Paul Bettany about drowning and burning her by saying he was angry she was acting like “the moral police” and “resentful of the fact Ms. Heard was very aggressive and quite insulting about my use of alcohol.” (Interestingly, in a previous written statement, he claimed Heard encouraged him to continue abusing drugs and alcohol.)

-So this is what it’s come to: according to Page Six, some television networks are now providing “good-behavior bonuses” to their reality TV stars in an attempt to get them to not be racist, sexist, transphobic, or homophobic on social media.

E. Alex Jung got 14 hours to interview Michaela Coel? No wonder is profiles are so good.  That is not the norm.

-The Toronto, New York, Telluride and Venice film festivals have unveiled a joint statement that commits the long-time rivals to cooperate and not compete for film titles and awards-season bragging rights in the fall. I love this. If I’m going to a stripped down TIFF this fall, I want to see world premieres only.

-A day after announcing he quit the band, Kasabian singer Tom Meighan appeared in court for domestic abuse charges. He escaped jail time after admitting to assaulting his fiancee (which he initially denied until police showed him CCTV footage of him dragging her through their backyard by her ankles).

-Hamilton fans are debating Eliza’s gasp at the end. I assumed it was breaking the fourth wall and she was seeing the audience, realizing that her/Hamilton’s story was being told. But heaven also works.

J.K. Rowling is back to demonstrating free speech, punching down, and advocating for someone to be cancelled the day after participating in that open letter about how free speech is being threatened by cancel culture. Sounds about right.

-Meanwhile, I liked this take on the letter.

-A gorilla dreams of reuniting with his sister in a new trailer for Disney+’s The One and Only Ivan, starring Bryan Cranston and the voices of Sam Rockwell, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Danny DeVito.

 

P.S. I Still Love You Gets an EW Digital Cover

To All the Boys P S I Still Love You ew

-I didn’t adore the follow up book to To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, but damn if EW’s cover story isn’t getting me excited for the movie. The GIFs alone!

Lana Condor also talked about why she’s more open about her dating life, because playing coy during the promo for the first movie led to too much real-life shipping between her and Noah Centineo.

Zendaya and her Euphoria costar Jacob Elordi having been claiming to be just friends, but these photos seem to indicate otherwise.

-Terrible news: Shannen Doherty says she has stage 4 cancer. She credits Brian Austin Green with getting her through the 90201 reboot.

-Huh. Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg is engaged to the brother of Walking Dead/The Punisher star Jon Bernthal.

Jessica Simpson said in a recent interview that she has a good relationship with Nick and Vanessa Lachey and they even sent her a gift when she had a child. They very awkwardly insisted they did not!

Janeane Garofalo claimed Edward Norton cost her a role in Fight Club, and he responded “I’m sorry Janeane is under that impression, but if she was serious, she’s really mistaken.”

Jennifer Lopez posted a bts video of her and her daughter getting ready to perform at the Super Bowl.

-I never get tired of Saoirse Ronan and Andrew Scott bonding over being Irish.

Megan Thee Stallion would like everyone to know she is not dating G-Eazy; she just let him lick off her Fenty cosmetics.

-Meanwhile Halsey, who used to date G-Eazy, did NOT take kindly to an audience member screaming his name during her show.

John Boyega continues to be a delight on Insta.

-This is a fascinating article one Parasite’s house set (which they built from scratch).

-Speaking of unbelievable homes, have you checked out Kim and Kanye‘s spread in Architectural Digest yet?

-The Good Place’s philosophy consultants shared their thoughts on (im)mortality, the finale, and whether they are, or are not, a Chidi.

-The Always Sunny team created a comedy called Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet about a video game’s development for Apple+ and critics are loving it, calling it “The Office for the younger set.”

Paul F Tompkins‘s Twitter thread on being in Bojack Horseman made me tear up.

-Disney is reportedly reducing Fox’s slate to just 4 films a year as they increase their focus on streaming content.

Andy Cohen says Kelly Ripa saved his life by telling him to go to a doctor in 2017 to have an odd spot on his lip checked out — which turned out to be cancer.

-If you’re wondering why a pro-Johnny Depp wave is sweeping Twitter, it’s because audio “leaked” from a therapy session of Amber Heard admitting to hitting him. As if that absolves him of everything?

John Krasinski appears in a flashback in the latest spot for A Quiet Place II.
