-This is an interesting interview with Katherine Heigl, in which she talks about how her “difficult” label crushed her career. On one hand, she made some valid points about Knocked Up at the time and the world owes her an apology about the backlash (same with Megan Fox re: her comments about Michael Bay). On the other hand, rumours about her and her mother’s behaviour on set were legendary.  In any case, her 27 Dresses costar James Marsden has her back, saying in the article: “She has very strong convictions and strong opinions on certain things, and she doesn’t back down from letting you know if she feels like she’s been wronged in any way. I’ve always seen that as just strength of character.”

Machine Gun Kelly is performing on SNL this weekend and Megan Fox joined him on his way to rehearsals — where she was spotted wearing what looks like an engagement ring.

-Whoever is doing Mariah Carey‘s social strategy continues to crush it.

T.I. and Tiny are denying the rumours that surfaced on social media this week, alleging the couple drugged and assaulted women. They released a statement: “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously.”

Amy Schumer still doesn’t really understand how she ended up in the drama involving Hilaria Baldwin.

-The two stars of Pen15 are both pregnant, which should make for an interesting new season.

Anne Hathaway has joined Jared Leto in a new Apple TV+ series about the spectacular rise and fall of WeWork. Let’s hope he doesn’t welcome her to the cast by sending her a dead rat.

-In today’s Actors on Actors interview, Amanda Seyfried tells Vanessa Kirby: “I wish I could redo ‘Les Miz’ completely, because the whole live singing aspect just — I still have nightmares about it”.

-This is a great tribute to Cicely Tyson, who passed away yesterday. Lenny Kravitz, who was her godson, also posted a lovely tribute.

-Vanity Fair has gotten wind of Jessica Mulroney’s interview the National Post from last week. Unlike most Canadians, they seem unaware of the columnist and her, um, reputation.

-This oral history of the Super Bowl episode of Friends is packed with juicy tidbits! Brooke Shields‘ then-boyfriend Andre Agassi yelled at her after her dinner scene with Matt Leblanc (“I see him come down, pull Brooke aside and eviscerate her because he’s crazy-jealous. She’s reduced to tears! I broke the show for awhile, and the girls took Brooke aside and loved her, took care of her and got her back on that stage. She did great because of the support of those three. He was a jackass”). Matthew Perry flirted over fax with Julia Roberts. (“She was giving him these questionnaires like, “Why should I go out with you?” And everyone in the writers room helped him explain to her why.”) Chris Isaak couldn’t really act (“Such a swell guy. But his scenes with Phoebe? It was like working with a salmon”). Jean-Claude Van Damme showed up hours late and was too aggressive in his kissing scenes (“Having completely blown up our shooting day, we had to scramble. Then he’s unprepared and arrogant!”)

Anne Hathaway’s Backyard Red Carpet

Anne Hathaway might be missing out on a Locked Down premiere, but she’s not skipping the red carpet. She ate this photoshoot.

-Also, she says we’ve all been calling her the wrong name. “Call me Annie. Everybody, everybody, call me Annie. Please…The only person who ever calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she’s really mad at me, like really mad. So every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they’re going to yell at me.”

-Here we go. Page Six published an interview with Armie Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Courtney Vucekovich, who attests to him making cannibalism comments, but levels even more disturbing accusations of emotional abuse. “He quickly grooms you in the relationship. He kind of captivates you and while being charming, he’s grooming you for these things that are darker and heavier and consuming. When I say consuming, I mean mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, just everything.”

-I’d love to know the “much-loved actor” who trash talked him to an interviewer.

-It’s wild that there a screengrabs of Mary-Kate Olsen‘s Zoom divorce proceedings floating around. And they were authorized!

Lori Harvey and Michael B Jordan posting their cute snowball fight on Instagram kinda feels like rubbing it in, no?

Bella Thorne commented on Florence Pugh‘s Instagram video and fans started dragging her, and Pugh was not having it.

-Warner Bros spent the holidays trying to placate their top talent after abruptly announcing that all their 2021 movies would be streaming on HBO Max. Denzel Washington is said to be getting his $20 million plus backend fee  for The Little Things, while talent making less than $4 million will be paid an additional 25% upon the release of the film as an advance against box office bonuses.

Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke play longtime friends  in the trailer for Netflix’s  upcoming series Firefly Lane.

-The trailer for I Care A Lot has arrived. I saw this at TIFF and my immediate reaction wasn’t overwhelmingly positive because everyone – EVERYONE – in this movie is terrible and there’s no one to root for. But as soon as I leaned into it, it was pretty great. Also, no one has ever looked cooler vaping as Rosamund Pike does in this. It’s on Netflix in the US, but comes to Prime on Feb 19 in Canada.

Arnold Schwarzenegger accidentally referred to son-in-law Chris Pratt as Chris Evans on Instagram, which is a belated xmas gift to all of us.

-In a new interview, Patty Jenkins details her “internal war” with Warner Bros. over the first Wonder Woman movie. “Everybody in the industry wanted to hire me. But I felt like they wanted to hire me like a beard; they wanted me to walk around on set being a woman director, but it was their story and their vision.”

-Meanwhile, this is a very good piece on how the second Wonder Woman is supposed to be for women, but still isn’t about women.

Steven Soderbergh released his annual list of every piece of pop culture he consumed in 2020, and once again I feel like a luddite.

-Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson was trending earlier because he weighed in on “cancel culture” in a new interview, saying “It’s important that we’re exposed to a wide spectrum of opinion, but what we have now is the digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn.” I’m raising my eyebrows more about the part where he talks about “the weight of responsibility” of playing Mr Bean.

Maria Bakalova, the Bulgarian star of Borat 2, says she’s kept in touch with the film’s 62-year-old babysitter. “Jeanise is a true angel. I will probably always think of her as my godmother, a real hero and life coach. We had a real human connection from the very first day we met. I called her on Thanksgiving. It was my first American Thanksgiving and was also my best. I was so happy to talk to her that I started to cry. When we were shooting, it was very hard for me, because I wanted to tell her not to worry about me.”

-Rumour has it that Jodie Whittaker will be leaving Doctor Who soon.

-The Dexter revival has tapped Clancy Brown as its big bad. I just saw him in Promising Young Woman (which we all must watch and talk about because I can’t stop thinking about it.)

Jared Padalecki in Men’s Health is, um, surprising.

Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in Locked Down, the first romantic comedy set during the pandemic — and it looks surprisingly good? Instead of the endless Zoom calls that have plagued most quar projects, these guys are planning a diamond heist. And good news for Canadians: it drops on Crave the same day it arrives on HBO Max – next Thursday.
