Gwyneth Paltrow Tries to Convince Us She’s Super Laid-Back — With Her Abs


-In her new Women’s Health cover story, Gwyneth Paltrow insists she’s a cool, down-to-earth chick who isn’t as high maintenance as we’ve been led to believe. On her beauty routine, she laughs, “I’m not like, ‘Then I use this masque that I make on my stove.'” On parenting, she insists, “I don’t believe in saying, ‘You’re not allowed that.’ If my kids want a Shirley Temple with the radioactive cherry in it, go for it, you know?” Ahh, why’d she have to say “radioactive.” She sounded *thisclose* to being normal!

-I never thought I’d agree with an article titled “It’s Time for Katherine Heigl to Return to Grey’s Anatomy,” but this makes a lot of sense.

-Ugh, these behind-the-scenes details about the inappropriate behaviour of Mad Men actor Paul Johansson during a Buzzfeed interview are super cringey. Dude needs to simmer down and remember he’ll always be known as the guy who’s heart was eaten by a dog.

-Whew! Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki seems to be fine after sending a series of distressing tweets.

-On today’s Ellen, Melissa McCarthy further expanded on her verbal bitchslap of a reporter who criticized her looks.

Emily Blunt adds her voice to high heel outcry at the Cannes Film Festival. Thank gawd that rule didn’t exist when I was there.

-Now that it’s been confirmed that Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi didn’t shoot their final scene together, whenever you tell someone you hate your coworker, you now need to clarify if you “Good Wife hate” your coworker.

-And that was the day I decided to follow Grant Gustin

-The comments in this story about celebrities being dicks to their fans are beyond hilarious.

-I love the Mariah Carey/JLo feud so hard!

-Just in case you didn’t already love Amal, George Clooney says she kept him on one knee for “28 minutes” pleading his case when he proposed.

-Also, George is still not interested in joining Twitter.

John Greene wants to remind everyone that he’s a novelist, not a casting director. So leave him alone about the Looking For Alaska actors, mmm-kay?

Gael Garcia Bernal wields a giant machete in The Burning trailer.

Simon Pegg addressed his comments about the “dumbing down” of blockbusters and our current obsession with “very childish things” like “comic books, superheroes” — though I’m not sure it’s better to admit that he just makes stuff up when he’s bored during interviews.

Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen are having a baby!

-Variety has a great cover story on Greg Berlanti. He has a hand in pretty much every show I watch religiously — though I’m not sure about his new Pan movie, based on this trailer.

Anna Kendrick dropped some f-bombs on the Pitch Perfect 2 red carpet, managed to make it adorable.

-God bless The Washington Post for delving deep into the mysterious situation that had two primary Good Wife characters not sharing any scenes for years. I really, really liked Dan Fienberg’s quote in that piece about how manipulative and insulting to the audience Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi‘s fake scenes together these past two episodes have been. (And we’re all assuming last night’s was green-screened, right?) I was texting back and forth with Nicole last night during the show and was so angry that the writers expected us to suddenly care about their friendship when they haven’t been on screen together in 50+ eps. Hard pass!

-In any case, critics are tearing apart last night’s season finale. On-set tension or not, that was just bad. And yet, CBS just renewed it.

-Actually CBS basically renewed everythingexcept for Battle Creek and the terrible, terrible Stalker.

-Over on Fox, they announced The X Files revival will premiere in January 2016, American Idol is ending, and Empire has added Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys. Also, Sleepy Hollow is going up against Shondaland on Thursday nights so colour it screwed.

-Meanwhile, NBC unveiled its fall lineup and it’s … not good. Blindspot may have potential, and critics seemed to enjoy the sizzle reels of Eva Longoria‘s Hot and Bothered, and Megan Mullally’s You, Me and the End of the World, but there’s not a lot of buzz for the others. And seriously, how is a “frazzled lady professional” show like Heartbreaker still getting made in 2015?!

Amy Schumer‘s latest skit is about men who want to have sex with beer.

Amber Rose says Kanye West doesn’t write his own music. Shots fired!

-The upfronts to unveil new TV shows to advertisers are next week, which means cancellations are coming fast and furious today. NBC dropped Constantine (though the CW may pick it up) and State of Affairs, Fox axed Backstrom and The Following, and ABC just cut Forever, Cristela and Resurrection. But in surprisingly awesome news, they renewed Agent Carter!

-True Detective season 2 is dropping the occult angle, which is probs for the best.

Stephen Colbert just solidified his rep as an solid human being at South Carolina schools by funding every single teacher-requested grant.
