Dakota Johnson and Andrew Garfield Talk Fame and Films

-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.

Willem Dafoe and Katy Perry have been announced to appear on next weekend’s SNL, which got this story trending again.

-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.

Janet Jackson Controls Her Narrative

Janet Jackson is on the February cover of Allure, and the Tim Munro-shot photoshoot looks like something out of dystopian movie that I really want to see. She talks about life in England, why she produced a documentary about herself, and how the way the world interacts with female artists has shifted.

Alia Shawkat says was “shaken up” by the “gross and stupid” rumors surrounding her relationship with Brad Pitt — but he had no idea. “I was like, ‘You know everyone thinks we’re dating? And there’s this whole thing, and I’m being followed.’ And he was like, ‘I’m sorry. It happens. If you hang out with me, it happens.’ He had no awareness of it at all.”

Olivia Munn posted a pic of John Mulaney with their new son.

-In perfect casting news, Sharon Stone will play Cassie’s mom in season 2 of The Flight Attendant.

-Wow, new episodes of Starstruck are landing next month?! The first season was adorable.

-The trailer for Ava DuVernay’s new show, which premieres tonight on the CW, actually looks great.

-After three years without one, the Oscars is getting a host again. There’s no word on who yet.

-Why does Reese Witherspoon keep posting about crypto? At first I assumed it was just her social agency but there’s been enough posts (and wild reaction to them) that she’s got to be approving them, if not actively pushing them. Someone send Ben McKenzie her contact info.

Julia Fox and Kanye West are still going strong.

-Congrats to Josh Duhamel, who is engaged to former Miss World America Audra Mari.

Andrew Garfield says he once lost out on a role to Ben Barnes for being “not handsome enough” — even though those two actors are often mistaken for each other.

-Awful: Sinead O’Connor’s 17-year-old son, Shane, was found dead in Ireland after she reported him missing.

Alec Baldwin took to Instagram to call reports that he’s not cooperating with the Rust investigation “bullshit.”

-Drive My Car keeps topping awards lists and I feel bad that I couldn’t make it past the two-hour mark on that film.

-Here’s the first trailer for the Bob’s Burgers Movie, something I totally forgot was happening but am glad it is (I’d be even more glad if it was streaming instead of just in theatres).

-The trailer for The Worst Person in the World doesn’t do much for me, but audiences have LOVED this movie at festivals.

-Here’s the trailer for Uma Thurman‘s new Apple+ series, Suspicion.

Julia Fox Chronicles Date with Kanye West

-The Julia Fox/Kanye West thing go so weird so fast. She gave Interview magazine basically a “date diary” (with photos!) about her second date with him, in which he surprised her with a new wardrobe. (The article seems to have been pulled but you can still view the cached version.) They’ve only known each since New Year’s Eve and many others have pointed out that he reportedly tried to control Kim Kardashian‘s wardrobe, but a new interview with her seems to indicate that she’s aware people are worried she’s being love bombed.

-Also, it wasn’t until that interview that I saw she once accused her ex-husband and the father of her baby of “f*cking his aunt.” What is happening?!?

Kate Bosworth is dating Justin Long after announcing her split from her husband in August. When I first read that I thought, “Oh cute, they’ve reunited.” But apparently, they didn’t date in the 90s and I just imagined that?!

The Weeknd‘s new album dropped and everyone is wondering if the song “Here We Go…Again”, (which includes the line “My new girl, she a movie star”) is about Angelina Jolie.

-This is an excellent interview with Andrew Garfield (who, in this moment, seems to be more beloved than he’s ever been). He talks about his willingness to play Spider-Man again (there’s lots of spoilers about how what happens in the latest movie could pave the way, so click only if you’ve seen No Way Home).

-In another interview, he says he and fellow Spider Man alum Tobey Maguire snuck into a movie theatre together to watch No Way Home. I love that they have a little Spidey-based bromance!

Adam Scott posted a pic in his Party Down costume for the revival and it makes me so happy (and yet also sad that his character still appears to be a cater waiter).

Whoopi Goldberg, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and more are paying tribute to Sidney Poitier, who died at 94.

-It looks like Mary Cosby has quit the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City reunion.

-Amazon’s The Boys will return June, and celebrated with a funny fake ad.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were spotted together in Miami, but maybe they were just coparenting their dog?

Rooney Mara will play Audrey Hepburn in a new biopic.

-I’m always hesitant to put too much stock in early reactions to new films while the reviews are still embargoed, but man, everyone is losing their minds over the new Scream.

-Insecure’s Yvonne Orji plays a matchmaker for single parents in the trailer for My Mom, Your Dad.
