Beyoncé and Jay-Z Get Personal On New Tour

-For a family that’s usually so private, I’m surprised Beyonce and Jay Z’s kickoff of the On the Run II tour featured so much personal family footage. The twins were glimpsed in video of what looked like a wedding vow renewal celebration, Blue Ivy‘s dance moves were showcased, and the couple even entered the stage in an elevator!

-In a new interview, Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat opened up about that disastrous NYT cast interview and it just made me like her more. “I know I said a little, but what I wish I had said was, ‘Stop talking. Stop. Jessica, go on.’…I hope that the guys on the show and now all these men of all different ages start to communicate with the women in their lives, the women they work with, and just ask openly with no shame, ‘What can I do to be better?'”

Reese Witherspoon announced that she’ll reprise her role as Elle Woods with a video of her floating in her pool. I’d prefer a bend ‘n snap, but this also works.

-Why am I in no way surprised that Mariah Carey bathes in milk?

-Anyone else hearing lots of whispers about the Beckhams today? What’s going on?!?

-Male movie critics are fine but I really wanted to read a female critic’s perspective on Ocean’s 8 — and I loved this take from NPR’s Linda Holmes, who says it’s a breezy and adventurous heist movie that doubles as a clever commentary on Hollywood and actresses.

Anne Hathaway said she was very aware after having her first baby that she weighed a little more than she was used to, but felt better about it after Rihanna gave her a compliment  on the Ocean’s 8 set. “Rihanna looks up and goes, ‘Damn girl, you got a ass!’ I was like, ‘Really?’ And she goes, ‘You got a ass like me!'”

Jann Arden is getting her own sitcom? She’ll play “a formerly famous Canadian singer desperately trying to make herself relevant again.” I want this in my eyeballs now!

-In a Vulture interview, Conan O’Brien talks about networks’ aversion to change by comparing traditional broadcasters to Hans Gruber, and the internet to John McClane. It’s pretty apt.

-The Queer Eye season 2 trailer made me tear up, so all is right with the world.

-This Iggy Azalea tale  made me laugh out loud.

-Yay! FX has ordered a third season of Atlanta.

Samantha Bee expanded on her apology about using the term “feckless c**t.” “I should have known a potty-mouth insult would be inherently more interesting…than juvenile immigration policy.” As the Show Your Work podcast pointed out this week, she’s being incredibly smart about what and who she is apologizing for/to, and what/who she isn’t.

Mila Kunis says of working with a female director for the first time on The Spy Who Dumped Me: “There’s a noticeable difference. No one is yelling at each other…Nobody got mad…no screaming matches. At 7 o’clock, bye, go home. I got to see my kids for dinner. It was lovely.”

Ava DuVernay gave a shout out to the 25 women who directed Queen Sugar episodes — 21 of whom had never directed TV before.

Greg Berlanti, who already has a TV record 14(!) scripted series on the air, just inked a four-year extension at WarnerBrosTV that will pay him $400 million in what THR is reporting is an all-cash deal. So don’t except an non-Berlanti show on the CW until 2025 or so…

-In between songs on Carpool Karaoke, Shawn Mendes talked about living on his own in Toronto.  I wonder if he’s a Forest Hill kind of guy, or more of an Annex type?

Scott Wolfe just turned 50 and posted this shirtless pic. Bailey is benjamin buttoning before our eyes!

-Tag looks ridiculous (I mean, it’s literally a movie about a game of tag? Really??) but at least the cast seems like they are having an amazing time on the press tour. This video cracked me up.

Channing Tatum flirting with Chris Hemsworth in Instagram comments is my new aesthetic.

Drew Goddard‘s hotel is hiding some dark secrets in the Bad Times at the El Royale trailer, starring Chris Hemsworth Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson.

-Guys, I don’t hate the trailer for Bumblebee, starring Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena. My world is askew.

Claire Foy is fierce in the trailer for Girl in the Spider’s Web, the next chapter of the Dragon Tattoo series. Playing Lisbeth Salander is really smart career move for her, since she’s mostly known for portraying the Queen of England in The Crown.

Anne Hathaway tries to convince her ex-husband, played by Matthew McConaughey, to kill her current husband in the trippy Serenity trailer, which is sure to mess with your head (and not just because there’s not a browncoat in sight).

The Ocean’s 8 Trailer Is Everything!

-It’s here! The Ocean’s 8 trailer starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Rihanna.  God, I love so much about this! Richard Armitage is clearly some sort of love interest but doesn’t even get a line in the trailer. It’s the perfect use of Hathaway. The heist they’re planning is at the freakin’ MET Ball!

-Yikes. Selena Gomez‘s mother was hospitalized after reportedly having a “heated conversation” with her daughter about Justin Bieber. That’s going to make for an awkward holiday season..

Issa Rae is working on not one, but two shows and they both sound amazing.

-Silicon Valley actor T.J. Miller has been accused of brutal sexual assault. The accuser, speaking publicly for the first time, says it happened in college. The accusations were addressed by a student court at George Washington University at the time and Miller has told friends over the years that he was wrongfully accused. In the Daily Beast’s deeply researched report, five GW students at the time corroborated details of her story.

Miller has denied the allegations, saying “Sadly she is now using the current climate to bandwagon and launch these false accusations again.”

-Not surprisingly, everyone today is remembering that time Miller hosted the Crunchies and repeatedly called Gabi Holzwarth a bitch. And more stories about him being a not-great guy are coming forward.  He was already cancelled by many people because of a series of unfortunate interviews earlier this summer.

-I love that #damonsplaining is becoming a thing. Can we make it trend??

-I’m also enormously satisfied that Damon is getting called out as being “completely forgettable” in the reviews for his new movie.

-How in the world is Chris Brown still landing leading movie roles in 2017? Followup question: how did his duet with R Kelly top the charts in 2017?

-Wait, Terry Crews illustrated the cover of Ad Age’s Creativity 50 issue? Is there anything this man can’t do?!? (Besides getting white Hollywood to support him?)

-The Pitch Perfect reviews are in and they…aren’t good. THR calls it “soulless.”  At least EW thinks it’s charming, so there’s that!

Jimmy Fallon, Anna Kendrick, Darlene Love & The Roots sang “Christmas” with kids instruments.

Armie Hammer on quitting Twitter. “It’s a toxic environment. No one goes on the internet to say anything nice.” Ok.

-Wait, there’s a Sicario 2Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, and Matthew Modine star in the new trailer.

 

Victoria Beckham Says She’s “Really Good Value at a Dinner Party”

Victoria Beckham is on the cover of Elle UK, in which she insists she smiles IRL. “I’m really good value at a dinner party – I want to relax and have a laugh. I like to have fun, and I think that often surprises people.”

Anne Hathaway has been exceptionally thoughtful and articulate during her Colossal press tour, but this interview with Jezebel may be my favourite — mostly because she doesn’t shy away from the fact that the site had posted incredibly mean things about her in the past. (The postscript to the interview with the reporter’s realization that he once posted Anne’s crotch shot is especially worth your time.)

-Yes, Antonio Banderas scented candles are a real thing that exist. (Unfortunately, they don’t actually smell like Antonio Banderas.)

Chris Evans says he cried when he told his mom he lost his virginity.

Olivia Munn and Aaron Rodgers have split after 3 years together. His family must be having a goddamn hootenanny right about now…

-Buzzfeed asks a very valid question: how many times does Nicole Kidman have to prove herself?

-Hmmm…Meghan Markle just shut down her lifestyle blog, The Tig. Everyone is assuming this means she’s positioning herself for a role in the royal fam. (Of course, her camp says that speculation is false.)

Sandra Bullock is just living her life in Wyoming (complete with a great jacket).

-On today’s episode of The Talk, Sharon Osbourne recalled seeing her X Factor costar Mel B with “a black eye and bruising everywhere.”

Elizabeth Hurley is 51 and she looks like this. I don’t even know how that’s possible.

Cuba Gooding Jr. says he didn’t intend to exhibit “sexual misconduct” when he lifted up Sarah Paulson’s dress. Well then, give the man a medal!

Emma Stone responded to that teen’s viral La La Land-inspired promposal, telling him  “I’m in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom… P.S. I do see Gosling around the eyes.”

-It’s the week before the F&F movie comes out and Vin Diesel is downplaying his reported beef with Dwayne Johnson.

-If I had all that HBO money, I’d probably do exactly what Lena Dunham just did.

Kristen Stewart runs, jumps and dances in the new ad for Chanel’s latest “it” bag.

Joe Manganiello likes Dungeons & Dragons so much he wrote a script about it. I remember listening to him on the Nerdist podcast and being shocked by how gloriously geeky he is.

-According to GOOP, you can cure your insomnia by walking around barefoot. Sounds totes legit!

-There’s reportedly intense infighting among the six potential heirs that stand to inherit Prince’s fortune.

-When I die, please bury me in Laura Dern’s bathtub.

Rami Malek is on the run in the trailer for Buster’s Mal Heart.
