Anne Heche On Ex Ellen Degeneres

Anne-Heche-Ellen-DeGeneres

-If anyone was going to spill the tea about Ellen Degeneres, I expected it to be her ex, Anne Heche. But in a new interview, she says: “Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honour,” adding “I haven’t spoken to Ellen in years. I’d listen to the people who have.” She also praised a pair of male costars: “There have been two men who fought for me to be seen for my talent and not my headlines: Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford.”

Ryan also recorded a message for BC after the province saw an uptick in cases among young people due to an increase of parties: “I hope that young people in BC don’t kill my mom or David Susuki…or each other. Let’s not kill anyone! I think that’s reasonable.”

-Meanwhile, Seth Rogen tweeted: “People of British Columbia! Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there! It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!”

-On Saturday, Taylor Swift took to Twitter to accuse Trump of engaging in a “calculated dismantling” of the US Postal Service, adding he’s trying to “blatantly cheat” the election. Interestingly, this comes when she’s trying to make a foray back into country music.

You kind of just enjoy being human with everybody else and laughing through it.” She says they’ve also been enjoying movie nights. “Well, we’re all there. So, all six kids, my oldest son’s home from Korea. Lots of popcorn and just like really every family, we’re just pajamas, robes, snacks.”

Sharon Stone is urging everyone to wear their masks as she shared that her sister is battling the coronavirus, saying “One of you Non-Mask wearers did this.” She added that her sister’s husband is also fighting for his life, that her grandmother and godmother have already died of covid, and that healthcare workers and others can’t get tested in Montana, where her family lives.

Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer Stuns on Allure

-My god, the Allure cover and photo spread with Hunter Schafer might be my favourite in a long, long time. In the interview, she talks about not always wanting to talk in the press about her transition, and how Euphoria is a “wildly expensive TV show”, with season one reportedly costing about as much to produce as season one of Westworld.

Angelina Jolie’s legal team is asking for the private judge assigned to their divorce case to be disqualified for failing to disclose his business relationship with one of Brad Pitt’s attorneys. Pitt’s team (via Page Six) is spinning it as “a delay tactic“.

Alyssa Milano said she was hospitalized for complications due to  COVID-19 in April and that she still has long haul symptoms of the disease months later.

Jessica Mulroney returned to Instagram — obstinately to wish her sons a happy birthday, but that caption is a lot.

-It’s kind of cute that Scandal’s Guillermo Díaz is a Madonna superfan.

-A reboot of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is in the works with Will Smith exec-producing — although the new version will be a drama, not a comedy.

-Because there are no new ideas, Zac Efron will star in the Disney remake of Three Men and a Baby.

-In a new interview, Ruby Rose talks about leaving Batwoman after one season, saying “Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough.”

Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Keira Knightley star in the Misbehaviour trailer.

Paul Mescal Dances It Out

Rolling Stone’s new video gifts us with nearly four perfect minutes of Normal People’s Paul Mescal dancing and lip-syncing around an empty hotel.

-Speaking of new videos, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion kicked off the weekend early by dropping the NSFW video for “WAP.”

-This is a good take on why the “clean” version of that video feels so much more dirty than the “explicit” one.

Megan Thee Stallion is having a moment. She also just became Revlon’s newest brand ambassador.

-Not surprisingly, Justin Hartley is reportedly unhappy that estranged wife Chrishell Stause has been dishing about their divorce on Netflix’s Selling Sunset.

This wine thing that celebs are doing is the first TikTok challenge I’d actually consider trying.

-HBO’s Lovecraft Country — about a black family in the ’50s battling monsters both mythical and real — is getting glowing reviews. Lots of critics are also praising Jurnee Smollett’s performance and predicting it’s going to make her the breakout star she deserves to be.

-Now Molly Baz has quit Bon Appétit’s Test Kitchen, and Gaby Melian has also posted that she will no longer be appearing in videos because Condé Nast “is not meeting my expectations regarding the plans to have a more diverse and inclusive video program.” It’s wild that Condé Nast is allowing a media property that is beloved by so many burn to the ground instead of just paying their BIPOC employees fair wages.

-Dirty Dancing is getting a proper sequel, with Jennifer Grey reprising her role and exec producing it.

-If Angelina Jolie‘s facemask costs more than $100, why does every picture of it look like it’s been photoshopped onto her face?

This video of teens listening to “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins for the first time is a treat. It sent me down a rabbit hole on their channel, and their first listen of “Jolene” is also worth watching.

-This is an interesting take on why Disney’s choice to release Mulan straight to VOD is not the right one. This bit about the inevitable discourse that will surround its release is especially strong: “For some movie fans, Mulan is just another summer blockbuster, albeit a highly awaited one. For Mulan’s target market, however, this was poised to be a Black Panther-esque behemoth. A wide-release property with a majority Asian cast and a woman in the director’s chair is extremely rare, and given the likely strong box office and critical success that (based on early reactions) was surely coming its way, Mulan could have been a game changer. Instead, once Mulan comes out, the conversation about its merits and foibles will be competing with the circumstances surrounding its release. A film as rare as this should never be hampered with that burden.”

-A federal judge just approved the end the Paramount consent decrees, which have dictated the movie industry’s licensing rules for over 70 years. This opens the way for a studio like Disney to start buying up blocks of theatres and only showing their own movies.

-Speaking of stuff that’s a little inside baseball, this TV exec shakeup is wild.

-The Friends reunion was supposed to shot in August, but it’s reportedly been delayed again. I remain unconvinced that this is a good idea, especially the actors are getting paid millions to participate, while we’ve spent the last four months being inundated with charity-based TV reunions.

-Here’s the trailer for Judas and the Black Messiah, in which Daniel Kaluuya plays Black Panther Party Chairman and Rainbow Coalition founder Fred Hampton. It costars LaKeith Stanfield and Jesse Plemons.
