Chloë Sevigny Poses For The Cut 3 Weeks Before Her Due Date

Chloë Sevigny, who is 9 months pregnant, shows off her baby bump in a nude shoot for The Cut.

Jimmy Fallon and Kate Hudson reminisced about almost dating after Almost Famous, with her telling him: “You gave me no indication…If you would have actually made a move, I would have totally gone there.” Nicole Kidman also once told him that he’d missed his shot.

Rob Lowe says that when he and Tom Cruise were cast in The Outsiders, they were flown to NYC and put up at The Plaza, and 18-year-old Tom went “ballistic” at having to share a room.

Olivia Munn says Bryan Singer walked off the set of X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal to fly to Los Angeles for approximately 10 days to deal with a “thyroid issue,” leaving the production to scramble without a director.

-I really can’t handle any stories about Jeff Goldblum being problematic right now.

-Someday I hope we get the full story about how Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies‘ feud on The Good Wife got so bad, the show had to film their final scene separately and use special effects to splice them together. But today is not that day. When asked about the rumored behind-the-scenes tensions in an interview with The New York Times, Panjabi demured, telling the interviewer, “You’re very naughty, Jessica.” When pressed, the actress very tactfully answered: “I completely understand why everyone asks about it. Everybody I meet asks me about it, in some roundabout way…I’ve said what I’m going to say.”

-What will TV and movie productions look like once filming resumes? Studios are talking about closed sets, airline-style packaged meals, fewer location shoots, and shooting sex scenes with actors separately and then bringing it together in post-production. Maybe Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies could give them pointers?

Lea Michele is expecting her first child. Seeing how she’s still posting about her wedding, I’m already cringing at what her Instagram feed will look like in the coming months.

Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox appear to be quarantining separately.

Lilly Singh is getting some flak for cultural appropriation after posting this dancehall video, seeing as she has no Caribbean heritage.

-Facebook announced the star-studded lineup for its upcoming event, Graduation 2020: Facebook and Instagram Celebrate the Class of 2020. Oprah will deliver the commencement speech, Awkwafina, Jennifer Garner, Lil Nas X and Simone Biles are also set to speak, while Miley Cyrus will perform “The Climb.”

John Krasinski is also planning something for the graduating class of 2020 on his next episode of Some Good News.

-The cast reunions continue. The actors from Goonies got together for the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, while the cast of Melrose Place is set to reunite to support the Actors Fund.

-One thing I love about the CW is they seem to really encourage their actresses to try directing. Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist directs the May 3 episode.

-Don’t you hate when you forget about your giant penis art? Phoebe Waller-Bridge was on The Graham Norton Show and showed off the ‘wall of penises’ prop from season 1 of Fleabag. “You know when you just put something down at your house, and then you don’t think about it for ages? It just becomes invisible to you, and you forget that you have 12 massive penises at your front door. And this delivery guy came and I just completely forgot. He kind of had to like bring something in and he was like knocking against the cocks as he was coming in and I suddenly saw them again for the first time in ages. I was like ‘Oh god, I’m so sorry’ and he just looked me dead in the eye and went ‘It’s art. Never apologize for art.’ ”

-With everything that’s been going on in the world, news about the Pentagon releasing UFO footage has been lost in the shuffle. Even more lost in the shuffle? The fact that the footage first surfaced thanks to Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge.

-In the new trailer for Homecoming season 2, Janelle Monáe tries to unlock the secrets of her identity. Is that Joan Cusack?!

The Queen Confirms Harry & Meghan’s Move to Canada

-This is an interesting deep-dive into the statement The Queen released today. “At 5pm, Buckingham Palace issued a 153-word personal message…that simultaneously tried to resolve a royal crisis and hold a family together.”

Prince William and Prince Harry released a joint statement Monday denying news reports about William “bullying” Harry and Meghan.

-Meanwhile, this is a pretty devastating roundup of 20 headlines that demonstrates how differently royal reporters treated Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle (not that Kate didn’t take her lumps in the press as well. But the tone was not the same by a long shot).

-Also, palace insiders are worried about Harry and Meghan giving “a full, no-holds-barred sit down interview,” which could be used to brand the monarchy as racist and sexist.

-So the Oscar nominations came out this morning and the snubs have overshadowed any pleasant surprises. No Jennifer Lopez, no Adam Sandler, no Greta Gerwig for director, no Awkwafina, no POC acting nods beyond Cynthia Erivo. The condensed award season may have rewarded recent theatrical runs and people who have been campaigning hard but not as long (i.e. – Kathy Bates over JLo) rather than films that came out earlier (Hustlers, The Farewell, Rocketman, etc). Though that doesn’t explain Once Upon A Time’s success this morning, which came out in July.

-Despite not nabbing a Best Director nod, Greta Gerwig’s statement on Little Women’s is super classy.

-Today’s Twitter exchange between Kathy Bates and Adam Sandler (who costarred together in Waterboy) was very cute.

-Also, this is a very good take on why Joker shouldn’t have been nominated — let alone be leading the pack.

-Well, this is an odd twist: model Gigi Hadid was among the 120 potential jurors called on Monday for the Harvey Weinstein rape trail.

-At least she’ll have a shoulder to cry on: she’s apparently been working on rebuilding her relationship with Zayn Malik one year after calling it quits.

-A cohost on The View just quit…and sadly it wasn’t Meghan McCain.

Gwyneth Paltrow posting “Thank god I can now say I have something in common with Zendaya” about the Tom Ford molded bust, and Ira commenting “Gwyneth…you’re both in Spider-Man” will never not be funny.

-The cast of Schitt’s Creek met Nicole Kidman last night on the red carpet and I’m so happy for them!

Justin Bieber joined Youtuber David Dobrik to surprise fans. The one who didn’t know that JB was there and said “Yummy is just NOT it” owns my heart.

Jennifer Aniston posted a new Friends reunion pic.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are set to return as Golden Globes hosts, thank gawd.

-Because Showtime is notorious when it comes to keeping shows long past their prime, Shameless has been renewed for an 11th and final season.

-Westworld unveiled its season 3 release date (March 15) with a new promo.

-The first Morbius trailer is here and it surprisingly features Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture, last seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Lizzo Is an Entertainer of the Year

EW’s Entertainers of the Year include LizzoAwkwafina, Renée Zellweger, Regina King, Taika Waititi and the cast of Succession.  I love how everyone is lusting over the Jeremy Strong pic. I don’t see it as Kendall but his real life photo shoots bring a whole other energy. Also, Sarah Snook talks in her adorable real accent in the video and she so wonderfully perky and un-Shiv-like.

-Time also named Lizzo the entertainer of the year. My Spotify Wrapped rankings would agree.

-Well, it now makes more sense why Justin Timberlake broke his silence on the affair rumours long after the story had died down. According to Us Weekly, “Jessica encouraged Justin to put out his statement on Instagram because she felt embarrassed by his actions and wanted him to take accountability.” People is quoting a source who says Jessica will stand by her man: “Obviously Justin drank too much this time, but Jessica believes he didn’t cheat on her. What’s most important to her in life is her family and being the best mom to Silas. She’ll never break up her family over something like this.”

-Meanwhile, Bette Midler wants Justin Timberlake to publicly apologize to Janet Jackson. Don’t we all?

-In the Hollywood Reporter, Reese Witherspoon addresses the backlash over her sizeable paycheque for Apple’s The Morning Show. “I guarantee these companies are real smart, and if they agree to pay us, they’re doing it for a reason. They probably had a lot of lawyers and a lot of business people decide on that number because they knew that they were going to make more than that back. Does it bother people when Kobe Bryant or LeBron James make their contract?”

-The SAG nominations were announced today. It’s insane that Knives Out isn’t nominated for ensemble cast, but good on the cast of Parasite for making the cut (I finally saw that movie and holy s%$# it’s amazing).

Harvey Weinstein and his former studio have a tentative $25 million deal with his accusers. Weinstein, accused of offenses ranging from sexual harassment to rape, won’t have to apologize, admit wrongdoing or pay his own money.

-How did I miss all the GIFs of Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s penis this week? (NSFW, obvs)

-As we recover from the first half of the CW crossover (which just isn’t as fun as they usually are, right?) here’s the first trailer for the CW’s newest superhero show Stargirl, starring Luke Wilson.

-Look, I don’t even go here but why is the Star Wars cast shading Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi? He did what he had to do.

-Holy cow the trailer for Promising Young Woman, starring Carey Mulligan, looks amazing! It costars Connie Britton, Molly Shannon, Alison Brie, Adam Brody and Max Greenfield.
