Bennifer Rises!

-Bennifer is back, baby! 17 years after calling off their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted on a romantic vacation in Montana.

-So the Golden Globes are pretty much dead, huh? Netflix kicked things off on Friday by announcing they were “stopping any activities” with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association until changes were made about their lack of diversity, and Amazon quickly followed suit. Then today, NBC announced it wouldn’t air the show next year, stars like Scarlett Johansson, Ava DuVernay and Mark Ruffalo called them out, and Tom Cruise GAVE BACK the awards he’s won over the years as a sign of protest. (Hopefully we’ll finally get justice for Brendan Fraser.)

John Mulaney and his wife Annamarie Tendler are splitting up after six years of marriage — and it seems like it was his decision. In a statement to People via her rep, she said “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.”

Gal Gadot says Joss Whedon treated her badly on the Justice League set: “He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable. I handled it on the spot.” That lines up with what a source told the Hollywood Reporter in their exposé about it: “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.”

-There’s an oral history of Tom Holland‘s performance of “Umbrella”!

-Amid all the controversy about Doctor Who actor Noel Clarke, his costar John Barrowman has apologized for repeatedly exposing himself on set. I remember the Arrow cast talking about him doing this all the time like it was a funny joke. David Boreanaz used to brag about doing this on the Buffy set, too.

-In case you missed this wildly depressing news last week, LaKeith Stanfield moderated a Clubhouse chat dedicated to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories where Jews were repeatedly compared to Satanists and termites.

Dave Bautista is set to join the cast of Knives Out 2.

-I’m not sure why the New York Post thinks Leonardo DiCaprio looks unrecognizable in the first photos of the new Scorsese film. He looks like he always does? (The replies to their tweet are hilarious.)

Cardi B Is Woman of the Year

Cardi-B billboard woman of the year

Cardi B is Billboard’s Woman of the Year — and what a year it was. In the interview she says, “I’m not gonna front — this has been a bad year due to work. You can’t do shows and you gotta wait on deals. But I’m really happy because I have spent so much time with my family. I feel like I haven’t laughed like I have in 2020. My daughter is so funny, and I’m with her every single day. That’s what brings me happiness.”

-Wow wow wow – the news that Warner Bros will stream ALL their 2021 movies on HBO Max on the same day as their theatrical debut is a huge, seismic shift for the movie industry. There’s lots of debate about whether this marks the death toll for movie theatres or if this was just because HBO Max needed Warner Bros’ entire slate to save it (I can’t wait to read tomorrow’s think pieces!) but either way, even after we get a vaccine and life returns to normal, it’s going to be hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

-Meanwhile, Canada will still get all those movies as theatrical releases. They’ll eventually come to Crave someday, maybe.

Daniel Radcliffe appeared on Hot Ones and in between wing tasting, he talked about why he won’t join social media. “When I was younger, not anymore thanks god, I would like to look up comments about myself on the internet and read s–t like that. That is an insane and bad thing to do. And to me, like Twitter and everything just feels like an extension of that. Unless I want to go just read all nice things about myself, which also feels like another unhealthy thing to do.”

In a new video to promote her skincare line, Jennifer Lopez goes completely makeup free and looks amazing.

-I was worried when I saw that Nora Roberts was trending but it’s just because she clapped back at some ninny who tried to explain to her how publishing works. I want “Stop. You literally don’t know what you’re talking about” on a tshirt.

-The only person in the audience at the Chanel Métiers fashion show was Kristen Stewart.

Aubrey Plaza became a paparazzi target during quarantine because she lives near Brad Pitt.

Gillian Anderson is on the December cover of Harper’s Bazaar, in which she talks about putting her personal politics aside to play Margaret Thatcher in the new season of The Crown. “I had to get to a point where it’s nothing to do with my opinions of her policies, of her actions. It is only about her as a human being and her motivation as a politician and as a mother.”
