Kiernan Shipka Casts a Spell

es-magazine-Kiernan-Shipka

-The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina drops Friday on Netflix, and I appreciate all the looks Kiernan Shipka is serving up on the promo tour.  Her premiere dress was appropriately witchy, and she’s very cute on the cover of ES Magazine.

-I’m not quite sure why Sarah Silverman felt the need to tell everyone that Louis C.K. masturbated in front of her with consent when they were kids. I think she’s trying to explain that because he grew up thinking that kind of behavior was accepted, he didn’t understand why it wasn’t when he became famous.  (“I’m just saying at a certain point, when he became influential, not even famous, but influential in the world of comedy, it changes. He felt like he was the same person, but the dynamic was different and it was not okay.”) But it was never ok. On the plus side, at least she doesn’t seem down with his sweep-it-under-the-rug comeback. “I’m not saying everyone should embrace Louis again. I believe he has remorse. I just want him to talk about it on stage.”

-The plot thickens in the feud between Cardi B and makeup artist Blacswan.

-On the Today Show, Nicole Kidman clarified her comments from last week about how being married to Tom Cruise protected her from sexual harassment. “Because I was married at 23 years old, I wasn’t going to parties or I wasn’t going out a lot. I had my first child at 25 and I was in a family. So my sense of being in the world was — I was working, or I was at home.”

Drake reportedly wanted to have kids with Rihanna. I mean, who doesn’t?

-Good on Liam Payne for calling out a tabloid story on the “mystery woman” he was photographed with: “My team is full of talented, smart professional women. I find it wrong that they are reduced to being linked to me romantically in the press just for simply standing next to me.”

Chris Hemsworth and his brother picked up a hitchhiker and took him where he needed to go — on a helicopter.

-Halloween starring Jamie Lee Curtis broke a whole bunch of records at the box office this weekend,  including biggest horror movie opening with a female lead, and biggest movie opening with a female lead over 55. Horror is definitely not my thing, but all this talk about how badass Judy Greer is in the final scene has me curious.

-Congrats to Amy Schumer, who’s expecting her first child with hubby Chris Fischer.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson reportedly hadn’t started any wedding planning yet, so that has to make things slightly less terrible for them.

-Meanwhile, Davidson incorporated the split into an awkward standup set: “I’ve been covering a bunch of tattoos, that’s fun. I’m f–king 0-for-2 in the tattoo department. Yeah, I’m afraid to get my mom tattooed on me because she’d leave.”

Jill Soloway and Hannah Gadsby are reportedly dating and I love this so much!

-Nashville costars Chris Carmack and Erin Slaver got married over the weekend.

-I don’t typically watch Doctor Who but I might catch up on last night’s episode about Rosa Parks because everyone is gushing over it. It was the first episode in the show’s 55-year history written by a person of colour.

Cate Blanchett is getting a lot of flak for defending straight actors playing gay characters. While I think she should have acknowledged the privilege she has to take her pick from a vast number of roles that non-straight, non-white actors would never even be considered for (and the value of those who can bring lived experience to a role) I also think she’s been a bit misquoted. She actually said, “I will fight to the death for the right to suspend disbelief and play roles beyond my experience.” Which is…acting.

Selma Blair revealed her MS diagnosis and got a lot of support from fellow celebs.

Will Smith appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Facebook talk show, where he get candid about a rough time in their marriage: “Jada’s an actress, she had two babies, she had to be home raising her babies while I got to do everything I wanted to do. She was sacrificing herself to fit my picture. I felt that money and winning made a good relationship. You [Jada] were trapped in a life that you didn’t build and you didn’t want.”

-Wonder Woman 2 has been pushed back to June 5, 2020 (it was originally set to open Nov 1, 2019).

Jerry Seinfeld, Tony Hale, Tina Fey, Kumail Nanjiani, Keegan Michael-Key, Lisa Kudrow, Bryan Cranston and Stephen Colbert were among the celebs who honoured/roasted Julia Louis Dreyfess as she accepted the Mark Twain Prize.

-Every time Dave Grohl invites a kid on stage it makes my heart sing.

-Here’s the latest trailer for Julia Roberts‘ Amazon show Homecoming, which I just realized costars Lip from Shameless AND Ray from Girls.  The reviews are pretty glowing.

-You’re internet boyfriend Michael B Jordan might be dating someone who isn’t you. Sorry.

-I don’t watch Agents of Shield but I follow Chloe Bennet on Instagram because she’s a charmbomb. So I was a little confused with Logan Paul started popping up in her stories, but I assumed they were filming something together. But she confirmed that they’re actually dating. Girl…

-Mission: Impossible Fallout is getting impossibly good reviews, with EW calling it “insanely great” and The Verge saying director Christopher McQuarrie “just became one of our best action filmmakers.”

And most importantly, Megan Amram got her nomination!!

-Most of the nominations were kind of meh, though. I liked this take on how it was the triumph of “ok” TV.

-This is the first time in 18 years that HBO has not led all TV networks in noms; instead Netflix is now leading the way.

Will Smith and Kelly Ripa took on the “In My Feelings” challenge.

chris-pratt-entertainment-weekly

Chris Pratt is on the cover of EW to promote Jurassica World: Fallen Kingdom and in the interview, he talks for the first time about his split from Anna Faris. “Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”

-Meanwhile, the final trailer for  Fallen Kingdom has arrived. It looks very silly.

The Weeknd is “casually datingChantel Jeffries — who happens to be Justin Bieber‘s ex. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Eva Longoria got a star on the Walk of Fame and so many famous ladies showed up, including Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Munn, Holly Peete, as well as her Desperate Housewives costars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman.

Claire Danes revealed that she’s expecting baby No. 2 with Hugh Dancy. “I’m seriously preggo. I’m deep into my second trimester.”

-She also says that Homeland is going to end with season 8. (Meanwhile, Showtime says it has not made a decision yet, but since actors deals are up if it were to continue, it would likely be with a new cast. Just let it go, guys.)

-There was a lot of talk when the I Feel Pretty trailer first landed, with people complaining that Amy Schumer was too pretty to play an “ugly duckling” or that the movie suggests you have to be beautiful to feel happy. Fortunately, every review I’ve read seems to indicate that the movie has the opposite message, and it’s biggest target is the ugly side of the beauty industry.

-Also, Schumer refused to be retouched in the footage. “I said, ‘Do not retouch me in this movie. Do not retouch anything.’ You see my cellulite. You see my, my rolls, whatever.”

-I love Adam Pally. I love him even more after he was escorted off the stage for trashing the awards show he was presenting at.

-Netflix has ordered a comedy series starring Idris Elba as a DJ called Turn Up Charlie. He’s on such a comedy kick lately. It’s weird.

-This video of Kevin Hart taking Tiffany Haddish rollerblading is great. But before, she takes him to get discount pregnancy ultrasounds.

-People Magazine’s annual issue evolved from the “50 Most Beautiful” to “the Most Beautiful Woman” and now it’s “The Beautiful Issue.” Pink and her kids made this year’s cover.

-Oh great. Here comes all the “he’s ready for a comeback” articles. This week, we got ones about Louis CK, Mario Batali and Matt Lauer.

-This thread on who will survive Game of Thrones is perfect.

-Can Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak just get married already?
