Over a decade after sharing the screen, Dakota Johnson and Andrew Garfield reunite to discuss their latest awards contenders, “bone-deep empathy,” and more.

-The Social Network costars Dakota Johnson and Andrew Garfield reunited for a conversation for Vanity Fair. “It makes you focus on the things that matter and the relationships that matter,” Garfield says about fame. “Sometimes… if someone says, ‘Hey, are you the guy from the thing?’ I’m like, ‘No, I look like him,’ and then we can have an actual conversation.”
-Meanwhile, Andrew Garfield says he’s open to reprising his role as Spider-Man, which should surprise no one at this point.
-“I feel like nobody knew what the f**k to do with me,” says Jenny Slate in Marie Claire of the parts she was getting (or not getting) offered.
–Bella Hadid is giving us permission to cry. Way ahead of ya, girl.
–Kristen Stewart has never been more relatable than when she talks about being starstruck by Neve Campbell at a restaurant.
-The writers for And Just Like That know that everyone hates what the revival has done to Steve’s character, but are sticking to their guns. (Not that they can change anything now, but I’m guessing the backlash about the Che Diaz character took them by surprise, too. But them not anticipating that Che would be such a loathed character is pretty indicative of how clueless this show is.)
-Following backlash, West Side Story star Rachel Zegler apologized for reenacting Britney Spears’ recent tweets to her sister Jamie Lynn.
-The George Clooney and Julia Roberts rom-com Ticket to Paradise is temporarily suspending production due to rising COVID cases in the Queensland, Australia.
–Paul Walter Hauser (the character actor from Richard Jewell, I Tonya, Cobra Kai) went a little crazy last night on Twitter over …*checks notes*…the NYT’s film critics daring to make an Oscar wish list.
-Yellowjackets is working towards a season two premiere later this year, which is wild. Godspeed, writers room!
-I’m glad Leighton Meester is coming back to TV, but I wish it was on a better reviewed show than How I Met Your Father.
-Welp. I’m guess I’m going to stop linking to the A.V. Club so much, which is a shame because it’s one of my fave sites for pop culture criticism. It’s awful to watch yet another beloved publication consumed by a private equity consolidation and callously dismantled.
-In a truly odd casting choice, Daniel Radcliffe will play Weird Al Yankovic in Roku’s upcoming biopic about the musician and comedian.
-Encanto’s “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” has surpassed Frozen’s hit “Let It Go” as the highest-charting song from a Disney animated movie in 26 years. I watched the movie with my niece over the holidays and that song is *still* stuck in my head.
-Gotta say, I love Twitter’s new billboard campaign, which features celebs who once tweeted about their now-fulfilled dreams.
-Adam Scott finds a creepy way to achieve work/life balance in the trailer for the Apple TV drama Severance.
–Oscar Isaac is afraid to fall asleep in the trailer for Disney+’s new Marvel series Moon Knight, costarring Ethan Hawke. This video of those two reacting to the trailer is better than the trailer itself. I gotta assume that enthusiastic hug at the end has already been GIF’d.
