Zendaya Covers InStyle

zendaya-instyle-jan-cover

Zendaya looks amazing on the cover of Instyle. Is there nothing she can’t pull off? (Oh wait, I just saw the horse dress. Never mind.)

Chance The Rapper is very good at Twitter.

Kate Hudson declared her love for music producer Danny Fujikawa in an Instagram post.

Ben Affleck reportedly rented an Upper West Side apartment for Lindsay Shookus that costs $28,000 a month. But isn’t she an SNL producer? Couldn’t she rent her own apt?

-This article about how Meghan Markle is everything Ivanka Trump wishes she could be is just perfect. *chef’s fingers kiss*

Selena Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram — and she just switched her account to private.

-God bless Vulture for diving deep into an investigation on the muscular Korean guy spotted with Lindsay Lohan.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are just messing with us at this point.

Katherine McPhee crashed a wedding and then reportedly called the bride a “loser” for kicking her out. Charming.

-Filming was suspended on Blake Lively‘s new movie after she hurt her hand.

-Every year, IndieWire’s David Ehrlich does a 13-minute montage of the year’s 25 best movies. I missed so many!

-God bless John Oliver for grilling Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment allegations and refusing to back down. When Hoffman starting to say “Well, there’s a point in her not bringing it up for 40 years” I actually yelled “NOPE!!” out loud. (Oliver’s reaction of “Oh, Dustin” and putting his head in his hands was probably better.)

-Also, according to Terry Crews, Hoffman’s agent is Adam Venit, who Crews accused of groping him.

-Meanwhile, this is a great piece on the utter failure of male apologies this year.

Gabriel Byrne says that Kevin Spacey‘s behavior shut down the Usual Suspects filming for 2 days. “It was only years later that we began to understand that [filming] was closed down for a particular reason and that was because of inappropriate sexual behavior by Spacey.”

More allegations have come out against Prison Break/iZombie actor Robert Knepper. They’re awful. He denied all allegations, adding “Until I can sit down and have a dialogue with my accusers, managed not by the press but by an impartial mediator, I have nothing further to say on this matter.” How about a judge? Would a judge work?

-Netflix FINALLY cuts ties with Danny Masterson amid rape allegations. He’ll be written out of The Ranch. He released a statement about it, proclaiming his innocence.

-Despite not being super impressed with his behaviour at TIFF, I was starting to root for Armie Hammer. And then he had to go and Milkshake Duck himself by saying the only reason he wouldn’t work with Roman Polanski is because “there’s going to be drama” and that judging what he’s done is “a gray area.”

-It feels like something big is about to break with Bryan Singer, no? His production company is vacating the Fox lot after his firing. Meanwhile, he says he was fired from the Freddie Mercury biopic because he was taking care of an ill parent.

-I recommend reading this Daily Beast interview with the guy who runs the blind-item site Crazy Days and Nights. He had blinds about Weinstein, Spacey, and Lauer for years.

-I didn’t ship them on the show, but Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer are a pretty darn cute couple IRL.

-This sweet Mark Hamill story might be my fave celeb story I’ve read in a while.

-I’m really glad I’m not the only one who still isn’t over the fact that the CW crossover turned all our heroes into Nazis. NAZIS!

-Here’s the international trailer for The Last Jedi.

NBC Fires Matt Lauer Over Alleged Sexual Misconduct

-Just days after receiving a complaint on Monday, NBC fired the Today Show’s Matt Lauer early this morning. A source revealed to Page Six that Lauer allegedly “sexually assaulted” a female staffer during the Olympics this past summer in Rio. Multiple journalists had been digging into his behavior for months, and Variety dropped their big story about it this afternoon. It’s full of disgusting tidbits, including reports he once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present with a note about how he wanted to use it on her, summoned another female to his office and dropped his pants, and had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up.

-Everyone is wondering what Ann Curry is thinking today. (I’ll never forget a quote she had around the time she left the Today Show because of their “lack of chemistry”: “Chemistry, in television history, generally means the man does not want to work with the woman. It’s an excuse generally used by men in positions of power to say, ‘The woman doesn’t work.'”)

-Meanwhile, here are 12 notorious Matt Lauer stories.

-It took 19 long days since the initial Variety report broke, but Andrew Kreisberg has  finally been fired from Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, CW Seed’s Vixen and lost his overall deal with the studio. If they waited until the crossover ended last night before announcing it though, that’s gross.

-And now Geoffrey Rush is being accused of inappropriate behaviour? Goddamit.

-In a new interview, Ridley Scott talks about cutting Kevin Spacey from his film a month before its release. ‘Sometimes you need to lay down the law.’

-In happier news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cover the new issue of People.

-There are some pretty great Actors on Actors clips that came out today from Variety, including Gal Gadot interviewing Kumail Nanjiani, and Jake Gyllenhaal interviewing Margot Robbie. (I weirdly love that Jake’s opening question is “do you use an electronic toothbrush?”)

-The X Files creator is responding to criticism about the last season. Well, I guess it’s probably a good that that they recognize it mostly sucked…

-As someone who’s already seen Call Me By Your Name, the fact that they had to digitally remove Armie Hammer‘s balls from various scenes doesn’t surprise me. Those shorts were SHORT.

-Speaking of Call Me By Your Name, this profile on Timothée Chalamet is delightful.  I like that he’s a self-admitted Frank Ocean superfan.

-Speaking of superfans, a starstruck Keanu Reeves met his hero Sonny Chiba on Japanese TV and they fangirled all  over each other.

Nicki Minaj and Jesse Williams star in a new H&M mini-holiday movie and it’s better than anything I’ve watched on the Hallmark Channel all year.

Jessie Williams is everywhere! He’ll also star in Demi Lovato’s new music video, which drops on Friday.

Jay-Z sat down with The New York Times for a discussion on race, rap, politics and marriage.

Aaron Sorkin revealed that he has standing offer from NBC to reboot The West Wing, which he considers on occasion. This seemed like a really bad idea — until he mentioned that he wants Sterling K Brown to play the president. DO IT!

-Yikes. It’s probably not a good sign that Bryan Fuller is no longer going to be American Gods’ showrunner.

-Jessica Jones’ Krysten Ritter wrote a novel and it’s getting surprisingly good reviews.

-The Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped this morning. Here are all the Easter eggs.

 

Margot Robbie Covers Vogue Australia

margot-robbie-vogue

Margot Robbie, who is getting serious Oscar talk for I Tonya, talks about sexual harassment and marriage in the new Vogue Australia.

-Clear your calendar! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be married at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in May.

-Meanwhile, the behind-the-scenes footage from Harry and Meghan’s interview is all kinds of adorable.

-Also, I love how footage from Meghan’s time as a Deal or Not Deal suitcase girl is everywhere today. But remember when she was in Fringe?

Jennifer Lawrence says Darren Aronofsky wanted to talk about mother! all the time and she just…didn’t.

-The first two hours of the CW crossover have been super fun so far — despite the Nazi-ness of it all (did we REALLY need to see Oliver as the fuhrer?!?)  Ratings-wise they did well, but not as well as previous years.

-I take back my (very weak) defense of Armie Hammer yesterday. He deleted his Twitter over that Buzzfeed article. Oh, muffin.

-Yeah, Angela Lansbury made some BS comments about how women “must sometimes take blame” for sexual harassment but…she’s old.

-I stopped watching Dynasty about 20 minutes into the first episode but man, casting Nicollette Sheridan as Alexis Carrington is a brilliant move.

-It’s probably not a good sign that the new show from the creator of Gilmore Girls is being called her version of The Newsroom.

-I love any Amy Sedaris profile in which she talks about being Justin Theroux’s best man at his wedding to Jennifer Aniston. (“I went to LA and I had to get Uber because I don’t drive, and I was forced to get a phone. I don’t even know my number. Even when the phone rings, I panic.”)

-The Avengers: Infinity War trailer is coming tomorrow. Buckle in for bearded Captain!

Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel star in the coming out story Love, Simon Trailer.
