Emma Stone is Interviewed By Jennifer Lawrence for Elle


-In her new Elle cover story, Emma Stone talks to BFF Jennifer Lawrence about social media (“I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them”), and panic attacks (“My mom always says that I was born with my nerves outside of my body. But I’m lucky for the anxiety, because it also makes me high-energy”). I’m glad this interview format is starting to get some flack (as Lainey says “is this becoming a trend? A sh-tty trend?”) Think of the best celebrity profiles you’ve read in the last couple of months, whether it was Taffy Brodesser-Akner on Gwyneth Paltrow, David Marchese on Quincy JonesE Alex Jung on Sandra Oh or Stephen Rodrick on Johnny Depp. There’s a level of distance and probing (be it rooted in admiration or skepticism) that you’re just not going to get from a BFF. As the Fug girls says, “having your friend interview you makes for a flabby and anemic profile at best.”

-In better celeb profiles, this GQ one on John Cho is great.  “You’re the only Asian not in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Did you miss the meeting?”

-Crazy Rich Asians is set to pocket $5.3 million in tonight’s screenings alone. Fingers crossed it makes back its $30M budget in the first 5 days!

-Meanwhile, here’s an explainer on the CRA actors you may not know much about (yet).

-Speaking of new rom coms coming this week that I can’t wait for, Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is getting great reviews!

-Outside of his court hearing, Liev Schrieber told reporters he did NOT assault a photographer. “I never touched him, I never touched his body with my body. I was pissed, but that was it. I have nothing else to say.”

Dane Cook hosted a  Q and A on Instagram and opened up about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, a 19-year-old singer who is 26 years younger than him. Have some bleach handy so you can scrub your brain clean after reading about it.

Chris Pratt is still talking about James Gunn being fired: “We all love James …but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy”. You know what’s nuts? Gunn seemed to instantly realize his mistake and was like “yup, i screwed up and I’m outtie.” It’s the stars of GoG that won’t let it go.

-In a new interview, Glenn Close commented on Scarlett Johansson‘s trans casting controversy: “People who are producing and directing properties like that need to go out of their way to get trans actors jobs. But they also should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”

-This illustrated ode to The Americans’ wigs is fire.

-A week after splitting from Cheryl Cole, Liam Payne was photographed looking cozy with a model.

-This thread on friendships made me smile.

-It’s interesting that Julia Roberts is suddenly embracing social media. She once told InStyle: “It’s like people talking about a TV show: I can be perfectly aware of the TV show and the story, but it doesn’t mean I watch it…Everyone has Instagram on their phone. [if I had it] I would be looking at it all the time.”

Bella Thorne and her dating life exhausts me.

-Collateral Beauty gave Will Smith the worst wide opening of his career with a measly $7M weekend. Even 7 Pounds doubled that.

-I don’t really keep up with all the Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian drama, but it was hard to avoid it this weekend. A hacker took over Blac’s Instagram and claimed she left Rob, then posted convos that seemed to prove a string of affairs with other men including Jaden Smith and Young Thug. She later confirmed that she’d left Rob, said that the conversations published were real but denied the affairs, and implied that the Kardashians might have been behind the whole thing.  For his part, Rob has apologized for commenting on  the posts and is “seeking help.”
