Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay cover Marie Claire, where they talk about the importance of inclusion and representation, and learning how to not obsess about accommodating others.

-Sad news for for those of you who even knew they were dating: Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield split up.

Kit Harrington told Stephen Colbert about the end of Game of Thrones: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

-I’ve watched this clip of Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones spontaneously singing at each other more times than can be considered normal.

Keri Russell and Adam Driver (who are costarring on Broadway) are so damn funny and charming in this NYT profile.

-You can tell Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have done a few movies together by this point; their chemistry is really easy going and nice. The Captain Marvel pair sang Ariana Grande and took a lie detector test on Carpool Karaoke.

-Also, Larson and Jackson sang “Shallow” on The Jonathan Ross Show and they were pretty damn great.

Heidi Montag defended The Hills reboot’s lack of diversity by pointing out her co-stars’ hair colours. So that happened.

-Also, I keep forgetting that Mischa Barton is in this thing.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that her persona shift from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had everyone “thinking I was a crackpot.” Who is this whiskey-drinking badass she’s speaking of?

-Not surprisingly, Idris Elba‘s Netflix comedy about a DJ-turned-nanny isn’t getting glowing reviews. I want more for him than this. (And I definitely want more for him than taking over Will Smith’s role in Suicide Squad.)

-HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed will follow Amy Syed’s process of seeking and winning an appeal post-Serial.

-I liked this piece a lot about how Steven Spielberg isn’t right about Netflix — but he’s not entirely wrong either. I’ve been surprised by they lack of debate and the full-throated support of Netflix (who does some not great stuff). At the very least, they *should* disclose their box office numbers if they want to be Oscar contenders.

-Oh my goodness, the Good Omens trailer is all kinds of fun.

-I very much enjoyed this look back at Julia Roberts’ “Fellini summer”, a dramatic few months which included leaving fiance Kiefer Sutherland for Jason Patric, fighting with Steven Spielberg on Hook, being hospitalized for the “flu”, and walking away from Shakespeare in Love.

-You know, I’ve been pretty checked out on Arrow for a while and mostly just catch up with it out of routine these days, but compiling all these cast and fan social media posts about the show’s ending for this story hit me harder than I thought it would, especially Stephen Amell‘s tearful Facebook video. There were seasons when I LOVED this show, and I’m glad it’s getting to go out on its own terms.

-Meanwhile, I’m thinking this TV blind item from a while ago was probably about Amell.

-The trailer for Mindy Kaling’s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is everything I’ve ever wanted.

Angelina Jolie Talks Politics and Passion Projects in Elle

-This might be my favourite Angelina Jolie cover in a long time. Interviewed by John Kerry, the topics are heavy (they discuss her political passion projects, her UN Global Citizen of the Year Award, violence against women and climate change), while the black and white portraits are divine. I love that one of her on the phone.

Quincy Jones is on a roll when it comes to bananas interviews. In his chat with GQ, he says he once saw Ray Charles shoot heroin into his balls, he bought drugs from Malcolm X, and he was invited to Sharon Tate’s house the night they were all murdered by the Manson family.

Andrew Garfield says he’s open to the idea of a same-sex relationship and now I can’t stop fantasy casting his new boyfriend in my head. I’m leaning towards John Boyega but would also accept Jake Gyllenhaal as a suitable option.

-This thread on the history of Twitter’s most popular GIFs is the best.

-HBO’s new Alan Ball series Here and Now is getting terrible reviews. Vulture calls it “a mess of a series,” Variety says the show “strands its cast in episodes that are as undercooked as they are interminable,” and Sepinwall calls it “alternately suffocating and baffling, making almost every character as miserable to each other as they are to watch.” I’ve been side-eyeing Ball since I saw him at TIFF for his premiere of Towelhead and his post-film Q&A about sexual abuse was…questionable.

-In better TV news, this review of the first three episodes of Atlanta’s new season has me hyped!

-The Black Panther press tour continues to be a fashion delight.

Omarosa and Keshia Knight Pulliamd compared their respective loyalty to Trump and Cosby on a recent episode of Big Brother.

Quentin Tarantino keeps apologizing and that’s all well and good. Now  it’s time for him to DO something about it to change the industry.

-Thanks to his Twitter bet, Stranger Things David Harbour is embarking on a mission to Antarctica with Greenpeace.

-The new Fifty Shades movie is actually getting decent reviews (for what it is), but I’m not sure I’m down with recasting the entire trilogy as an ode to the idea of consent. I only read the first book, but that is NOT the impression I was left with.

Jeff Goldblum makes out with some alien tentacles in this Thor: Ragnarok deleted scene. “You’re Thor! You can kill your sister!”

Taraji P. Henson is a woman scorned in the Acrimony trailer.

 

 

Ryan Reynolds Continues to Win Twitter

Ryan Reynolds helped a teen get over her ex with some perfect Photoshop advice.

-I tend to really like Andrew Garfield, but he kind of stepped in it with this one.  “I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.” Um, no.

Blac Chyna‘s is reportedly exploring legal options against Rob Kardashian after he posted nudes of her on social media yesterday. As she should.

-Meanwhile, Rob‘s family is reportedly “deeply disappointed and frustrated” by his actions. “They are ashamed the war has become a public spectacle and hurting the family name.” Guys, just let that sink in for a sec.

-Congrats to Patton Oswalt, who is engaged to Meredith Salenger. It may seem soon, but that dude deserves all the happy.

-This video of celebrities speak-singing The Spice Girls features Nicole Kidman, Riz Ahmed, Keri Russell, Milo Ventimiglia and more. It’s very cute.

-Vanity Fair digs deep into Johnny Depp’s financial crisis.

-Shocking report: Prince Harry is NOT leaving the royal family for love, despite OK!’s latest cover story.

Seth Rogen‘s Twitter interactions with his mother are hilarious.

Kesha released a lovely new song out and penned a deeply personal essay for Lenny. “I know that I was never abandoned by my fans, my animals, or my family, but when you are depressed — really, truly depressed — you feel like you have nothing.”

Rihanna and Hasaan Jameel have reportedly been ‘hooking up for a few months’ but managed to keep it on the DL until last week.

-Look, I love me a little Justin Baldoni from Jane the Virgin, but does the world really need a men’s talk show?  Because the place where men get to talk is basically called the world.

-How To Get Away with Murder’s Charlie Weber talks about falling in love with Liza Weil on the set.

-It looks like Taylor Lautner and Billie Lourd are dunzo.

-CBS’s statement on the Hawaii Five-O shakeup and how they made ‘large and significant’ salary offers is supposed to make to Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park look greedy for not accepting, but it just shows us how CBS has been paying them much less all along. The showrunner’s statement also tries to put the blame squarely on the actors.

Steve Yeun talks about life after The Walking Dead in this new Vulture profile. I heart him.

-I’m looking at this photographic evidence of George Clooney holding a bassinet and I still kinda don’t believe it? My mind is buffering.

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s ‘pale, dreamy’ loft in NYC has finally sold for $10 million.

-I don’t know why the latest edition of GOOP includes a story about the Illuminati, but I’ve never been more interested in it.

-TV networks are purposely misspelling show names to avoid bad Nielsen ratings. Lolz.

-The Hills’  Lauren Conrad​ welcomed her 1st child: Liam James.

Jimmy‘s beard in the new You’re The Worst promo is hilariously tragic.

Toni Collette, Molly Shannon, and Bridget Everett enjoy a Fun Mom Dinner in this new trailer. (Um, why is Toni orange?!?)
