olivia-colman-crown-vogue-cover

-Yass, queen! Olivia Colman is promoting her regal turn on Netflix’s The Crown with a Vogue cover spread, and the interview is wonderful. (“Over the years, pounds have gone on, and my body has changed; I’ve had children. If someone doesn’t like me because of the size of my bum, they can f**k off. Because I’m quite a nice person to be with, actually.”) Her 73 Questions video is also as delightful as you’d expect.

-In a new interview with Hello!, Angelina Jolie says she has a new perspective on motherhood now that her kids are older: “When your children are little you feel more ‘mommy’. When they are teenagers you start to remember yourself as a teenager. You see them going to punk clubs and you wonder why you can’t go. I’m in this fun moment where I’m rediscovering myself.”

-Meanwhile, at his university in South Korea, Maddox was approached by paparazzi and asked about whether dad Brad Pitt planned to visit him at school. “I don’t know about that, what’s happening. Whatever happens, happens.”

Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Garner is the wholesome Hollywood friendship that the world needs right now.

-Also, Kelly kicks off every episode by doing a cover, and her version of “Bad Romance” is a good time.

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are launching a podcast about The Office for all your nostalgia needs.

Drake texted Bianca Andreescu after she mentioned him in a press conference — and she then read his texts to the media. I love her so hard.

-People are loving how Rihanna staged her lingerie fashion show at NYFW.

Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, the New York Times reporters who exposed Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged sexual misconduct, say “Gwyneth Paltrow was actually one of the first people to get on the phone … she was determined to help this investigation.”

-I’m bummed that Kathryn Hahn‘s new HBO limited series (which debuted at TIFF) isn’t getting great reviews. But very happy that Rosario Dawson‘s Briarpatch (which also screened 2 episodes at TIFF) is going over better.

-Last night’s TIFF audiences gave Renée Zellweger a rapturous, two-minute standing ovation at the screening of the Judy Garland biopic Judy.

-Speaking of movies that sparked with the TIFF crowd, Hustlers is predicted to open big this weekend.

Joaquin Phoenix stormed off the Joker set a lot, according to the director. What is it with actors being jerks on Batman-y sets (Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Phoenix)? And the irony that this happens on a movie which critics say is about toxic masculinity is really something…

-I agree with this piece on how this might be the best fall TV season in years. There are at least three new network shows that I’m going to give a chance (Stumptown, Emergence and Nancy Drew) — which is three more than last year.

-I’ve never seen Downton Abbey, but critics are digging the movie.

-This article on influencer Caroline Calloway from her former friend/ghostwriter has the internet buzzing.

Imogen Poots is stalked by a stranger during their Christmas break in the Black Christmas trailer.

Meghan Markle revealed never-before-seen pregnancy pics on Instagram for the launch of her new workwear clothing collection, available at British retailers in the fall. The proceeds will benefit the charity Smart Works, which helps provide clothing and interview coaching to unemployed women. Given how scrutinized and beloved her style is, this is such a great choice. (Plus, we Canadians know it’s not her first time doing a workwear line.)

-After a ton of criticismMario Lopez is backtracking on his “ignorant” comments about raising transgender children.

-Jane the Virgin ends tonight and the season finale is getting glowing reviews.

-For J.K. Rowling’s birthday, Emma Watson shared a scary/cute photo of the duo hanging out at a costume party with her co-star Evanna Lynch.

Celine Dion does not appreciate reports that her close friend Pepe has too much influence over her.

Lana Del Rey just announced she’s dropping a new album next month (with Jack Antonoff) and I really need it. Also, apparently it’s ok if you’ve fallen behind (like me). The episode explains enough that you can just jump back in.

Hannah and Tyler haven’t had time to get that drink yet. I don’t really know what any of that means, but my Twitter TL seems *super* psyched about it.

Angelina Jolie‘s kids are digging the fact that she’s going to be in the Marvel universe.

-I haven’t gotten around to reading this summer’s buzzy book Where the Crawdads Sing (I know, I know) but this Slate article on its dark history is wild.

Brie Larson was spotted looking cozy with Maria Bello‘s ex.

-Succession is coming back to HBO soon and honestly I can’t wait.

Ellen Page is bringing a documentary to TIFF called There’s Something In the Water that draws attention to the Indigenous and African Nova Scotian women fighting to protect their communities. She’s a good egg.

-The trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s highly-anticipated (and VERY expensive) Netflix drama The Irishman has arrived, and everyone’s freaked out by the “de-aging” visual effects.

 

Michelle Obama Nails Harry Styles in His 1D

-Twitter is going wild for a video clip from James Corden’s show that featured Michelle Obama hitting Harry Styles in the balls with a dodgeball, proving that sometimes the internet is made for good.

Hannah Gadsby goes no holds barred in her Variety interview, and it’s glorious. “Things that can f— off, or at least deeply reconsider their choices, according to Gadsby: A Star Is Born (“If I woke up and someone I met yesterday was just watching me, they would not have a straight nose”); colonization (“‘manspreading’ is the definition of civilization”); Game of Thrones”(“It’s a fantasy. There are dragons. Why are women getting raped?!”); Taylor Swift (“a can of Coke”).”

-We just got our first look at Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women adaptation and oh yeah, am I here for it.

-I deeply related to Jennifer Lawrence feeling ignored after pal Amy Schumer had a baby. She sent Schumer a series of texts  about The Handmaid’s Tale, and then jokingly blamed the baby when the comedian didn’t respond. “Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11?? Is this bc of the baby? Don’t make me resent the baby.”

-Yesterday, the Daily Beast released a story in which eight women accused Hollywood filmmaker Max Landis of emotional and sexual abuse, which follows years of rumours and social media chatter. Director Josh Trank then tweeted: “I 100% believe every word of this article about Max. I banned him from visiting principal photography of Chronicle, and I haven’t spoken to him since 2012.” Since the article broke, his managers have left him and MGM decided not to go ahead with his movie starring Idris Elba.

-Early buzz for Spider-Man: Far From Home is pretty positive.

Angelina Jolie has a new gig: journalist! She’s a contributing editor for Time and will pen monthly articles.

-Womp womp. Linsday Lohan’s reality show has been cancelled and her Mykonos nightclub has reportedly closed.

-I never thought I’d say this — but I’m on Bella Thorne‘s side on this one. Whoopi Goldberg basically slut-shamed her for the release of her hacked nudes and blamed her instead of the creepy hacker.

-I saw Men In Black: International last week and as charming as Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth are, that this is a mess. Now I know why, thanks to this behind the scenes recount of all the drama. Sony considered turning it into a crossover with 21 Jump Street, and while they were filming the actors were getting new script pages daily, and Thompson and Hemsworth then hired their own dialogue writers.

-In happier Hemsworth news, him singing “Hurt” on the Endgame set is kinda perfect. He was also very cute on The Late Late Show, attempting to be a waiter.

-Yikes. A crew member was reportedly stabbed in the neck on the set of Anne Hathaway’s new movie.

-The trailer for season 3 of Glow looks great. Netflix has been on a real cancelling kick lately, but I hope this show sticks around a bit.

-The Television Critics Association nominations always reflect what I’m watching on TV way more than the Emmys, and this year’s batch is no different. The “individual achievement in a comedy” category is especially strong: Pamela Adlon, Bill Hader, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Natasha Lyonne, Catherine O’Hara, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

-I’m very here for Kirsten Dunst returning to TV in a quirky comedy.

-This Vulture article about romance author Sherrilyn Kenyon, who accused her husband of poisoning her, is a wild ride.

-Ewan McGregor and Jacob Tremblay revisit The Shining universe in the Doctor Sleep trailer.
