Lana Condor Talks About Her True Love — And It’s Not Noah Centineo

lana-condor-noah-centineo

-In her new Cosmo cover storyLana Condor admits she and Noah Centineo did nothing to stop those romance rumours, despite her having a longtime live-in boyfriend. But I wonder how much that was encouraged by Netflix during TATBILB’s press tour?

-Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence, who’s reportedly engaged to art gallery rep Cooke Maroney.

Bradley Cooper was refreshingly candid when he talked to Oprah about being “embarrassed” by his Oscar snub for Best Director. “I felt embarrassed that I didn’t do my part. I’ll work on that. I went, ‘Oh, gosh. I didn’t do my job.'”

-The Walking Dead has been renewed for Season 10, but there is a chance Danai Gurira may not return as negotiations have become more complicated since she became a superstar thanks to Black Panther. Meanwhile, Norman Reedus becomes No. 1 on the callsheet with a reported paycheck of $350,000 per episode on top of additional guarantees and advances in a deal that sources say could be worth anywhere from $50 million to $90 million. (That guy also hits the lucrative con circuit hard so he’s pretty much flush.)

In the new issue of British GQ, Armie Hammer (who might be Hollywood’s worst tweeter — discuss!) stands by his tweets that criticized celebrities’ selfie tributes to the late Stan Lee.

Hugh Jackman accidentally restarted his fake feud with ‘total f—ing a–hole’ Ryan Reynolds.

-Avengers: Endgame might clock in at 3 hours. Dear god.

Jennifer Lopez is performing a Motown tribute at the Grammys and people are not happy.

-I’ve been reading a bit of backlash about the third season of The Good Place and I just don’t get it. Yeah, the Earth-bound stuff wasn’t great and I’m not totally shipping Eleanor and Chidi (and I ship everyone!) but this was also the season that gave us the Jeremy Bearimy episode so I have no complaints.

-Just eat the damn pizza, Drew Barrymore.

-Here’s our first look at the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion for Red Nose Day.

-Speaking of first looks, HBO just released a bunch of photos from Game of Thrones’ final season. I feel like I’m going to love Sansa this season.

-People’s cover story gives good press to Meghan Markle (which she can use after the trashing she’s getting in the British press — there was a headline yesterday about her being the cause of Harry’s baldness). People’s story has some new scoop, including how she leans on her faith and how everything went down with her father during the wedding.

Ed Westwick (who was accused by three women of sexual assault but prosecutors did not pursue charges) just landed a new gig. These men are Teflon.

-EW is doing a bunch of romcom retrospectives in time for Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure anyone needs a fond look back at He’s Just Not That Into You, but I really liked this piece about Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt getting together to re-watch (500) Days of Summer 10 years later.

-Celebs are getting in on the #FuckFuckJerry action and calling on people to unfollow their accounts.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Sun Is Also a Star. This book is on my bedside table and it’s one of two (alongside The Hating Game) that I pick up whenever I’m down because I can flip to a random page and it just brings the happy. So trust me when I say I do NOT want them to screw up this movie — and this trailer has me hopeful that they won’t. Yara Shahidi looks perfect; I’m less convinced about the Riverdale guy but I’ll give him a chance.

Reese Witherspoon Wants to Put Women “In The Center Of The Story”

reese-witherspoon-vogue

-In her new Vogue cover story, Reese Witherspoon talks about using her producing power to create strong roles for women and how she learned to own her success: “I used to hide my Oscar but then I was like, ‘Why shouldn’t I put it out here in the living room?'”

Lady Gaga has finally apologized for working with R Kelly after getting lots of pressure to do so. (It’s a little strange that she invokes the “younger self” bit since it was only 5 years ago and by then the rumours about Kelly were widely known, but at least it’s something.)

-French band Phoenix has also apologized for working with him.

Chris Pine and Patty Jenkins talk about their new TNT series in the latest issue of Variety, and Pine remains as charming as ever. I especially liked the part where he talks about playing a supporting role against a female lead, like in Wonder Woman: “Being in the film and supporting a woman doing that job is kind of a dance between ego and soul. I’m not too proud to admit it and say that at times, I’d have 30-minute conversations with Patty; I’d look at her, and she was wonderfully patient. I’d realize it had abso-f—ing-lutely nothing to do with me.”

-This is a good piece on how Bradley Cooper seems to simultaneously inspire awe an irritation by the way he plays the game.

-Not playing the Oscar game well are the men behind Green Book, who are increasingly showing their asses.

-God bless Terry Crews. He called out Kevin Hart for his reaction to the outrage over his anti-gay tweets. “The truth is, Kevin, you’re not being attacked. The truth is you have to just acknowledge what went on and acknowledge the pain of other people.”

Terry‘s show Brooklyn Nine-Nine debuts at its new home on NBC tonight.

-I liked this interview with various movie, TV and music critics on if there’s any value in writing really harsh reviews.

-There’s a lot of thirsty tweets going around about Penn Badgley‘s stalker character on You, and I love that the actor keeps reminding people that his character is a murderous psycho that you should not be lusting over.

-Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker is clapping back at Bandersnatch critics: “F*ck off, do something else.”

-This NYT list of the 20 best dramas since the Sopranos is surprisingly great. Enlisted! Veronica Mars! Jane the Virgin!

-Fox’s new show The Passage is getting decent reviews, which is good cause I’ve been missing Mark Paul Gosselaar on my TV screen since Pitch was cancelled.

-A new trailer for Punisher season 2 has arrived, and while I’m not here for Frank kissing someone who isn’t Karen, I’m definitely here for Frank begrudgingly becoming a father figure to an unruly teenage girl.

-Things get tense when terrorists take over a hotel in the new trailer for Hotel Mumbai starring Armie Hammer and Dev Patel.

-The trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw with Jake Gyllenhaal is beyond bizarre and I kind of love it?

 

Dawson’s Creek Cast Reunites for EW

dawsons-creek-reunion

-EW’s Dawson’s Creek reunion was the gift that kept on giving today. The four different covers! The photo shoot! The hour-long video interview with the cast! The GIFs! The quiz! The definitive proof that Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps are soulmates! Totally bliss.

-The Roseanne reboot debut last night and the ratings were insanely, staggeringly good — 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.1 demo. (For comparison, Will & Grace returned to 10M viewers and a 3.0 in the demo.) It set a ton of ratings records, including being the biggest sitcom telecast in three years. It even got bigger ratings that its series finale 10 years ago. So basically, expect TV studios to be rebooting every 90s show they can think of now…

-I liked this thread on how the show offers an unrealistic depiction of a Trump supporter.

Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series isn’t happening, and he doesn’t seem very happy about it.

These excerpts from Sean Penn’s new book can’t be real. And it includes a poem about #MeToo? Seriously, this can’t be happening.

-In a new BBC documentary, R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend claims he “trained” a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave. I don’t understand how we’re in the age of Time’s Up and yet his house has yet to be raided.

-So it’s possible that Corey Feldman wasn’t actually stabbed this morning after all?

-On Dax Shepard’s podcast (who knew that was a thing?!), Anna Faris says she regrets pretending to have a perfect marriage  on social media. “We intentionally cultivated this idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family.’ There were so many moments that were like that, but like anything on social media, you don’t post like, ‘Where the fuck is the toilet paper?’ or whatever. I think it’s a very hard forum to be genuine, and I think it does a disservice to people to not be.”

-I loved this thread on actors who are really good at making you believe in a romcom because of THE LOOK.

-Remember how Armie Hammer failed to get an Oscar nom and then he spent the next few months in sad-looking tracksuits? He says he’s moving on.

-I keep forgetting that The Americans returns tonight.  The reviews say the final season is great.

Amal Clooney is coming to Toronto for Luminato.

Amandla Stenberg is a teen with superpower in the The Darkest Minds trailer.
