Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay cover Marie Claire, where they talk about the importance of inclusion and representation, and learning how to not obsess about accommodating others.

-Sad news for for those of you who even knew they were dating: Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield split up.

Kit Harrington told Stephen Colbert about the end of Game of Thrones: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

-I’ve watched this clip of Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones spontaneously singing at each other more times than can be considered normal.

Keri Russell and Adam Driver (who are costarring on Broadway) are so damn funny and charming in this NYT profile.

-You can tell Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have done a few movies together by this point; their chemistry is really easy going and nice. The Captain Marvel pair sang Ariana Grande and took a lie detector test on Carpool Karaoke.

-Also, Larson and Jackson sang “Shallow” on The Jonathan Ross Show and they were pretty damn great.

Heidi Montag defended The Hills reboot’s lack of diversity by pointing out her co-stars’ hair colours. So that happened.

-Also, I keep forgetting that Mischa Barton is in this thing.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that her persona shift from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had everyone “thinking I was a crackpot.” Who is this whiskey-drinking badass she’s speaking of?

-Not surprisingly, Idris Elba‘s Netflix comedy about a DJ-turned-nanny isn’t getting glowing reviews. I want more for him than this. (And I definitely want more for him than taking over Will Smith’s role in Suicide Squad.)

-HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed will follow Amy Syed’s process of seeking and winning an appeal post-Serial.

-I liked this piece a lot about how Steven Spielberg isn’t right about Netflix — but he’s not entirely wrong either. I’ve been surprised by they lack of debate and the full-throated support of Netflix (who does some not great stuff). At the very least, they *should* disclose their box office numbers if they want to be Oscar contenders.

-Oh my goodness, the Good Omens trailer is all kinds of fun.

-I very much enjoyed this look back at Julia Roberts’ “Fellini summer”, a dramatic few months which included leaving fiance Kiefer Sutherland for Jason Patric, fighting with Steven Spielberg on Hook, being hospitalized for the “flu”, and walking away from Shakespeare in Love.

-You know, I’ve been pretty checked out on Arrow for a while and mostly just catch up with it out of routine these days, but compiling all these cast and fan social media posts about the show’s ending for this story hit me harder than I thought it would, especially Stephen Amell‘s tearful Facebook video. There were seasons when I LOVED this show, and I’m glad it’s getting to go out on its own terms.

-Meanwhile, I’m thinking this TV blind item from a while ago was probably about Amell.

-The trailer for Mindy Kaling’s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is everything I’ve ever wanted.

Lady Gaga Is Engaged

-Everything’s coming up Lady Gaga. A Star Is Born is doing even better than everyone’s wild expectations, and she just confirmed her engagement to Hollywood agent and boyfriend of two years Christian Carino.

Gwyneth Paltrow talks about her wedding to Brad Falchuk in the inaugural issue of Glamour UK’s digital issue: “It’s different to be in your mid-forties; do it again and bring all your experience, your pain, your happiness, suffering – everything. It’s actually very heartening, I feel very optimistic!”

Ariana Grande has returned her $100k engagement ring to Pete Davidson because she “ended the engagement and felt it was the right thing to do.” (And also maybe because it was pear-shaped? Just sayin’.)

Hailey Baldwin gushes about fiance/maybe husband Justin Bieber in her new Harper’s Bazaar interview: “He is incredible. He crushes everything. Every song, every feature. It’s crazy to see what he does. I’m always blown away.”

-In a new interview with Vogue, Chrissy Teigen talks about building her brand on social media, getting blocked by Trump, and reacting to pal Kanye West’s antics.

-Oh goodie. We’ve entered the phase where Louis C.K. wants us to feel sorry for him.

-Practical Magic turns 20 today and I love that movie so much. I wish it got the annual Halloween rewatch love that Hocus Pocus does.

-I like that Jon Hamm doesn’t shy away from penis jokes.

-This is a good deep dive into ABC’s decision-making process about rebooting Roseanne without its star.

Busy Phillips credits BFF Michelle Williams for saving her marriage. #FriendshipGoals

-The CW just released the poster for the 3-show DCTV crossover and it’s bananas. Everyone is body swapping? I usually hate multi-verse, parallel timelines crap but I dig this.

-Meanwhile, Legends of Tomorrow has bowed out of this year’s crossover, but the trailer for their new season looks bonkers in the best possible way. That show really came into its own last year.

Gina Rodriguez proves she’s an action star in the first trailer for Miss Bala.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Have Intense Opinions on PB&J

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott GQ cover

-New parents Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s GQ cover story is accompanied by a 12-minute video in which he attempts to prove how well he knows her. Their banter about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is way more entertaining than anything in the article.

Katy Perry talks about her “situational depression” after getting negative reaction to her album, and her religious roots in her new Vogue Australia cover story.

Amanda Seyfried‘s husband was a bit jealous about her working with her ex-boyfriend Dominic Cooper on Mamma Mia! 2. I can’t imagine why…

-You could win a trip to cook (breakfast – not meth) with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in the original Breaking Bad RV. The video is very cute. (“There’s so much shit in there, Bryan!!”)

-We already know Batwoman is coming to the CW in the upcoming 4-show crossover this fall, but now it looks like she’ll be getting her own series, too. I’m very interested in the casting for this one. I like that they’re actively seeking an actress who identifies as LGBT.

Demi Lovato is reportedly dating Halsey’s recent very recent ex G-Eazy.

-This is a very interesting fascinating thread on the Queen’s choice of brooches when meeting Trump.

-Did Justin Bieber have a falling out with Pastor Carl?

Kourtney Kardashian‘s boyfriend apparently doesn’t like her sharing sexy pics on Instagram. Did he know nothing about that family going into this?!

-I agree with this take that there are too many winter shows on TV in the summer these days. As good as I know they are, I’m having a really hard time tuning into heavy shows like Sharp Objects, Succession, Dietland, Killing Eve, etc. Which is probably why I’ve only caught up on The Bold Type and Glow this summer.

Blake Shelton seems oddly proud of the fact that he drank so much during a concert that he fell down mid-performance.

Jennifer Garner is having the best foodie week ever.

This featurette of Tom Cruise doing all this own stunts in the new MI movie is insanity.

Natalie Dormer and Matt Smith try to communicate with a zombie Stanley Tucci in the Patient Zero trailer.
