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.”

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

-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.

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.
