-While I hate the granny panty/diaper they put her in on the cover, Aubrey Plaza looks adorable in the inner pages of Cosmo. (This REDValentino dress is my fave.) In the interview, she talks about advice she got from her Parks and Rec costars (“Chris Pratt used to tell me when he would give me advice: ‘The separation is in the preparation.’ He’s one of those people who’s always very prepared. I was kind of the opposite. Clearly, it worked out for him”), and creating her own projects (“I’m so used to relying on this patriarchal idea of waiting around for someone to say, ‘You’—some brilliant man. I still have that voice inside my head that wants that. But it’s like, I’m 34. I can do it myself…I’m sick of doing other people’s shit. I want to do my own shit”).

It was just something that we did when we were young kids but we wore the rings through the first bit of the band starting to explode, at that point it was already too late because it was in the media.”

Lady Rose Cholmondeley (aka the woman at the centre of all those Prince William rumours) attended the State Banquet last night, but while her husband got to walk in with the procession that included the Queen, the Trumps, etc. she did not.

Christoph Waltz and Wallace Shawn have joined the cast of the next Woody Allen film, and as much as I hate cancel culture we might need to evoke it now for these two. (Allen’s already long cancelled, obvs.)

-Who says spoilers are harmful? After the end of James Holzhauer‘s winning streak was leaked, last night’s Jeopardy was the most watched episode in 14 years.

Jon Hamm is incredibly charming in this interview clip with David Tennant. His little smirk at the camera after his says “always add an extra 1/2 inch.” 🤣

-The season of appreciating Keanu Reeves continues. I hope it never ends!

-On Seth Meyers’ show, Kenan Thompson talked about on Kanye West’s SNL rant: “He voiced his opinion very loudly for a long time…We’re all entitled to our own opinion — I don’t know if that’s the moment, necessarily to hold people hostage like that — but hey, you know!”

-This is a good look from The Ringer about how Kanye West fell so far so fast.

Aubrey Plaza hugged the statue of Jeff Goldblum while security reprimanded her and I’ve never related to another human more.

-Novelist and essayist Zadie Smith and filmmaker Claire Denis tried to collaborate on the script for Denis’s new movie, High Life, but it didn’t go over so well. “We were so opposed on every idea,” said Denis. “There was not a word we could share.” (Judging from the reaction that movie got at TIFF, maybe Smith was smart to bail.)

-There’s no way Drew Barrymore agreed to this interview in Egypt Air’s in-flight magazine. No way.

Brad Kern, the CBS producer who was the subject of three investigations into allegations of abuse and harassment, has been fired from NCIS: New Orleans and let go of his network deal. His contract was terminated yesterday. (I actually didn’t think this was going to happen. Mo Ryan reported way back in December that he had been the subject of two different CBS HR investigations, and CBS still gave him a new two-year deal a few months later.)

Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye West will reportedly headline Coachella in 2019 — which makes me not want to go to Coachella.

-There’s a LOT of buzz for Amazon’s new show The Romanoffs, an anthology series from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner that features Christina Hendricks, Isabelle Huppert, Noah Wyle, John Slattery, Amanda Peet, Diane Lane –– basically everyone.

-Paul Dano’s Wildlife is getting raves on the film fest circuit. I’m intrigued.
