Kristen Bell is a chronic over-sharer (seriously, we know a LOT about her marriage) but one thing she says she won’t share is her kids’ faces. In the new issue of Romper, she says “My feeling is that I chose a career in the public eye. I chose to be quoted, I chose to have my picture taken. I don’t know them yet. I don’t know if they will want that. So I really don’t have the right to choose for them.”

Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are burying the fake hatchet for charity.

Sebastian Stan spent the first part of the pandemic bitching on social about people who were travelling, but now it seems like all he does is go on exotic vacations? In any case, his latest jaunt to Mexico featured cozy times with Alejandra Onieva.

-I find it sooooo weird that Brian Austin Green has Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth caping for his parenting skills.

-There are new photos of Dominic West and his wife going for a run. Well then, I’m convinced everything’s fine now!

-The TV gods giveth (Netflix renewed The Umbrella Academy) and the TV gods taketh away (HBO cancelled The Outsiders).

Salma Hayek did a supercut of all the times she’s gotten a covid test and I couldn’t get past the first 4 seconds.

-The Grey’s Anatomy showrunner very politely implied that Justin Chambers‘ exit screwed up her endgame plans, but won’t discuss details of his incredibly abrupt departure. “It’s just not my story to tell.”

Zach Braff, who’s 45, talked about his girlfriend Florence Pugh, who’s 24, and why he hasn’t discussed their age difference since she posted this video addressing the criticism of their relationship on Instagram. “She literally sat down, hit record on her phone and said that. I thought: how could I possibly follow anything as intelligent and articulate as that? So, I chose not to.”

-SNL had just 85 minutes to recreate Kamala Harris’ white pantsuit for Maya Rudolph to wear before the show went live.

Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to replace Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. What an upgrade!

-I’m really bummed that Robbie Amell had to drop out of The Hating Game. It is my FAVOURITE romcom (seriously, if you haven’t read it yet go fix your life) and he would have made a great Josh.

-This is a good overview of what’s going on in the movie industry, and why consumers now expecting a seamless shift of blockbusters from the big screen to their homes are about to get a rude awakening.

-The reviews for Netflix’s Hillbilly Elegy are hilariously negative. (Hilarious because the Oscar-baiting poverty porn trailer looked so, so bad.)

-Meanwhile, Netflix’s holiday romcom series Dash & Lily is debuting this week to good reviews.

-Spy costars Melissa McCarthy and Bobby Cannavale reunite for the Superintelligence trailer. This time he’s playing her love interest, which I *adore*.

Viola Davis On Surviving 2020

Viola-Davis-Instyle-Mag

Viola Davis rocks some killer pantsuits in the new issue of Instyle. In the interview, she talks about Black Lives Matter (“What’s happening is what has always been happening. We just decided to wake up. How have I been able to process it? I have days when I fail miserably. And that’s when I need my two or three glasses of wine. But I’m trying not to lose hope in humanity”), and her reputation as being “commanding” (“Other people see it much more than I do. I will say that I think my greatest source of strength is my authenticity. If I try to channel some other being, I get lost. That’s when my anxiety level goes up. Growing up in Central Falls [R.I.] as the only kinky-haired chocolate-brown girl, I always was trying to channel the girls who had the Farrah Fawcett look. It had disastrous results”).

Beyonce and Jay Z’s kid Blue Ivy is officially a more productive member of society than I am.

-If Prison Break ever comes back, it’s going to be without Wentworth Miller. He said on Instagram: “I’m out. Of PB. Officially. I just don’t want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told). So… no more Michael. If you were a fan of the show, hoping for additional seasons… I understand this is disappointing. I’m sorry.”

Gillian Anderson was on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning and every time I hear her talk with a British accent I do a double-take.

Aldis Hodge is on the verge of superstardom and I can’t wait. He’s so, so good in One Night in Miami.

Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks are still going strong. The pair celebrated his brother Luke’s birthday together.

-I just can’t get enough of Dave Grohl and Nandi‘s video exchanges. The part where she tells him he has to practice his drums more is adorable.

-The Hillsong controversy continues, with Carl Lentz’s alleged lover now giving interviews about their supposed affair.

-Did The Bachelorette break itself by dismantling its core premise?

-I’ve been done with Zachary Levi since he posted IG stories of him hosting a birthday party in the height of lockdown, but I see he’s still putting his foot in it.

-This week is going to be crazy and stressful, so let’s let Beyonce ease us into it with her glorious British Vogue spread, mm-kay? This is the first time she’s given an actual interview in years.

-It’s the day before the election and celebrities are pulling out the big guns. Taylor Swift posted a video to urge fans to vote, while Beyonce has endorsed Biden/Harris, adding the caption “come thru Texas,” and Michael Keaton posted another video for Pennsylvania.

-There’s been a bunch of sitcom reunions too, with the New Girl cast turning the theme song into a voting PSA, and the Community cast shooting an in-character short.

Dave Chappelle will host the first episode of Saturday Night Live after the presidential election — just like last time.

-Speaking of SNL, people really didn’t like it when this weekend’s host John Mulaney said in his monologue that “nothing much will change” if Biden beats Trump.

Johnny Depp lost his UK libel case against the publisher of The Sun over an article which called him a ‘wife beater’ – something the actor denies. The judge ruled the Sun has shown that “what they published in the meaning … was substantially true.”

Kendall Jenner threw a Halloween-themed birthday party amid the pandemic, and the internet is out for blood.

Jamie Lynn Spears has withdrawn her petition to become Britney Spears’ trustee.

-We learned this weekend that Prince William secretly battled coronavirus in April, even struggling to breathe—but kept his ordeal a secret because he didn’t wish to alarm the public. Which makes his decision to recently appear in public with his grandmother maskless even more strange.

-It’s November, which means Taylor Swift can legally re-record her old albums now.

-Bless Mariah Carey for always ushering in the holiday season with a fun video.

Stephen Colbert recited a passage about hope from memory. I love this nerd!

Ray Fisher once again called out Joss Whedon and Warner Bros, this time about racism.

John Boyega seems to be at peace with where things landed with Disney following his criticism, which he hopes will make it easier for the other actors. “It was a very honest, a very transparent conversation…They gave me a chance also to explain what my experience was like. I’d hope that me being so open with my career, at this stage, would help the next man, the guy that wants to be the assistant DOP, the guy that wants to be a producer.”

-I don’t have much interest in watching Kate Mara play a woman who seduces a high school student, but the reviews for The Teacher are good.

-My goodness, I want to live inside this Bridgerton trailer. It’s the first major show from Shonda Rhimes for Netflix, and it drops at xmas.
