Shailene Woodley Reveals ”the Truth About My Arrest’

Morton County Sheriff

Shailene Woodley wrote a first-hand account of her arrest for Time.

-A source tells People that Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer were living “separate lives” before the split, adding “They took turns caring for the kids so they could spend time with their separate group of friends.” Does that mean she has her own version of the p*ssy posse?

Brad Pitt reportedly didn’t file a response to Angelina Jolie‘s divorce petition because he’s hoping they can work out custody on their own.

-Whoa. Donald Glover will play Lando Calrissian in the untitled 2018 Han Solo Star Wars Story.

-Casting couch alert? Jesse Plemons is joining the cast of girlfriend Kirsten Dunst‘s The Bell Jar movie.

-I LOVE Anne Hathaway‘s new movie Colossal and I’m glad that she’s promoting it hard. But this quote about winning an Oscar is a garbage fire.

Bryan Cranston says more Breaking Bad stars are coming to Better Call Saul. Damn, does that mean I have to catch up?

Hilary Swank says she was once offered $9.5 million less than a male costar. Even with the pay gap BS, that seems like a lot.

-Dear Lord, I’m really hoping Amal Clooney’s jeans are part of a Halloween costume. Because I’m not here for floral embroidered flares, y’all.

-This is such a great read on HBO’s Insecure and the way TV networks think about diversity as “risk.”

-Congrats to Benedict Cumberbatch and his wife Sophie Hunter, who are expecting baby No. 2.

-Before we all lose the entire weekend in a Black Mirror binge, here’s a list of all the episodes, ranked.

-I’m way too old to shop at Hot Topic, so I’m gonna need a young ‘un to go buy me this Supergirl hoodie.

-It’s a big trailer day for Amy Adams. She makes first contact in the final promo for Arrival, and breaks Jake Gyllenhaal’s heart in the trailer for Nocturnal Animals (a movie I’m still not sure if I liked or not).

Benedict Cumberbatch Talks Fame, Fatherhood in Vanity Fair


-Everyone’s freaking out about how “hot” Benedict Cumberbatch is on the new cover of Vanity Fair. Really? It’s not doing anything for me. First of all, that’s the cheating pose. There’s no way a guy doesn’t look hot when posing with his arm above his head like that. It’s not a fair and accurate representation of hotness. And why is he pulling his pants down? I’m uncomfortable.

-Meanwhile, it looks like his Doctor Strange costar Tilda Swinton is left to shoulder all the whitewashing response.

-TMZ reports that the Kardashian family suspects the robbery was an inside job, with someone who knew when Kim would be bodyguardless tipping off the crooks.

-Not surprisingly, Karl Lagerfeld had some questionable things to say about the Kim Kardashian robbery. Because he’s the human equivalent of a pinky ring.

-I always forget that Melissa Etheridge is tight with Brad Pitt, but she doesn’t let us forget it in her new interview with Andy Cohen. Us Weekly reports she commented on the Brangelina split, talking about Angelina‘s strategy (“”I’ve gone through family courts. I’ve been twice around this block, and I know it really well, and I know when there’s some forethought to just how mean and just how you’re going to put disinformation out there first”) and reminding us all about that time when Angelina broke up Billy Bob Thorton and Laura Dern (“I was around when Angelina was not doing nice things with Billy Bob to Laura Dern. I went through that on a personal level…I helped Laura move out of her house with Billy Bob — I like broke into their home to get their stuff out because it was so nasty.”

-Perhaps maybe Chrissy Teigen shouldn’t have admitted to opening Rihanna’s mail? Seeing as that’s illegal and all. Just a thought.

-The Flash cast is really getting into the playoff season. Well, until you get to the end.

-Speaking of The Flash, I agree with this article on the 10 ways to fix the show.

-This little promo for Martha Stewart and Snoop’s new show already makes this my favourite thing on TV by a country mile.

-Variety’s report on what TV stars make per episode is fascinating! First of all, no wonder the Supernatural boys never want that show to end. Jensen Ackles is pulling in $175K per ep. And look at the women ruling the charts! Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel both scored $750K per episode of the revival, while Clare Danes and Ellen Pompeo are in the $400-450k range.

Ben Stiller revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer 2 years ago.

-When it comes to Taylor Swift, Demi Lovato is on Team Katy Perry.

-The Birth of a Nation is tracking low. It hasn’t been helped by Nate Parker‘s belligerent appearances this week, or this New Yorker article about how the movie isn’t worth defending.

-Congrats to OITNB and You’re The Worst star Samira Wiley, who just got engaged.

-I’m not totally sold on Kristen Stewart’s suit, but damn that hair. DAYUM!

Emily Blunt says that when they were shooting The Girl on the Train, the extras assumed it was a Friends reunion show.

-Meanwhile, the reviews for that movie are so bad. Bummer.

-Oh wow, an arrest was made after that death at George Stroumboulopoulos‘ L.A. home. The way it was initially covered, I just assumed it was a suicide.

-Congrats to Girls star Zosia Mamet, who married longtime BF Evan Jonigkeit. (Who, I just found out, is NOT Toby from Pretty Little Liars. Huh).

-Pretty much every celebrity ever is in this voting PSA. Like, every one.

Kim Kardashian Is “So Over” Her Taylor Swift Feud


-In her new Billboard cover story, Kim Kardashian tries to convince us that she doesn’t want to talk about Taylor Swift anymore. Uh huh.

Kim Kardashian was assaulted by the same creep who grabbed Gigi Hadid. Here’s a history of his “pranks.” Kim reportedly plans to press charges; I hope she finishes him.

Benedict Cumberbatch interviewed Tom Hiddleston and refused to ask him about Taylor Swift. Jesus cripes, what kind of a Sherlock is this guy?!

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris are texting again? Ruh-roh.

-Girls is ending after this season and is wrapping up filming this week, which Allison Williams celebrated with some adorable Instagram posts.

-Oh, FFS. Now Johnny Depp is in talks to star in a remake of Murder On The Orient Express? Sigh.

-CW”s new superhero fight club segment is so good, I almost want to watch more of this instead of the actual shows.

-How did I not realize that Rami Malek was on the Gilmore Girls? “All I remember was that was the fastest talking show…and I don’t have the most pace when I speak. I gently take my time.”

-I keep forgetting that Janet Jackson is pregnant. Good for her?

-YouTube star Lilly Singh met Drake and it was as adorable as you’d expect. The “#ScarboroughTingSinceTimeG” hashtag wins everything.

-I am so, so fascinated by THR’s story about how TV stars are getting rich at fan conventions. My brother and I once tried to calculate how much the average celeb makes at one of these things, and we clearly underestimated. I’d never judge the stars who attend or the people who regularly pony up hundreds of dollars for an autograph or photo, but there’s definitely an assembly line feeling to that component of cons. I’ve gone to two and had a blast, but mostly stuck to the panels. I lucked out when I met Gillian Anderson but from all accounts, that was a fluke caused by extenuating circumstances and most attendees only get to talk to the stars for a minute or so (mere seconds during photo opps). In any case, to each their own but I could devour a whole series on the commodification of celebrity interactions.

-Meanwhile, Stephen Amell is super unhappy about how that article portrayed the experience.

-Designated Survivor got a full season pickup (I think last night’s episode lost me), as did Speechless (which is surprisingly great. Minnie Driver FTW!)

-So glad to see Kate Middleton is enjoying our view.

-It tickles me to see Woody Allen’s new Amazon series get terrible reviews.

Jon Favreau is directing a new Lion King. Sigh.

-I saw Sandra Oh at TIFF and though I hated her movie, it reminded me how much I miss her. She just joined the cast of ABC’s American Crime.

-Speaking of TIFF, I liked Kristen Stewart‘s Personal Shopper. I think. It’s still percolating. In any case, here’s the new trailer.

Adam Driver plays a poetic bus driver in this new clip from Paterson.
