Tessa Thompson Wants To Change Hollywood

tessa thompson time cover

Tessa Thompson covers the new issue of Time, in which she talks about how the industry is slow to change (“Every big opportunity I have been provided has always been with people of color. There is a long list of white, male filmmakers I would love to work with but they just don’t see me. They just don’t”) and refusing to answer to nicknames on the Men In Black set (“If Chris [Hemsworth] is ‘sweetie,’ I can be ‘sweetie,’ too. But if he’s Chris, I’m Tessa”).

-This is boss: Michelle Rodriguez has confirmed that she will reprise her role for Fast & Furious 9 — but only after securing an agreement for a female writer to join the production.

Meghan Markle‘s friends are coming to her defense in a new TV special called Meghan and Harry Plus One, hosted by Gayle King.

Maya Rudolph is such a good friend, she was willing to stick her hand down an airplane toilet for Amy Poehler.

-God, I love that Tiffany Haddish keeps wearing that dress.

-The latest episode of Law & Order: SVU is getting heavy criticism for reportedly enflaming Islamophobia. The showrunner’s responses to people on Twitter about it are certainly not helping.

Bill Murray talking about Selena Gomez is all kinds of sweet: “I really like her. I mean, you still can’t tell me who the hell ‘Selena Gomez’ is — but Gomez… I really like. She’s unusually bright. She’s kind and she’s natural. I’m always pleased to find some kind of pop icon who I really like.”

-Greys Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo tore into The Bachelor boss over his tweets to Kelly Ripa: “we don’t attack successful women on our network.” I think I love her. When she’s done playing Meredith, she should write a book on how to be an ally because she’s been crushing it.

-An Amell is starring in the adaptation of The Hating Game!?! It’s the combination of my two favourite things!!! (I literally just fangirled over that author at a reading last month.) Lucy Hale is playing the female lead, which is a pretty good fit for the role physically.

Lucy is having a big day. The trailer for her Riverdale spinoff also came out. Other new CW trailers include Nancy Drew and Batwoman.

-I don’t love the silly petition by Game of Thrones fans (we can bitch and moan about TV shows but the only thing we’re entitled to control is our remotes; if you hate it, just turn it off and write fanfic), but I do love the totally ludicrous and not gonna happen “Jamie is still alive” theory.

-Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie told EW she was not happy when she found out that Jamie was leaving Brienne for Cersei. “That’s where I went very red. I was very upset and I had to go for a walk.”

-I also totally missed the point of Varys’ rings last episode, but this makes sense.

David Letterman sent a surprise message of support to Busy Phillips and her showrunner (who started as his assistant).

-If someone asked me to guess who in Hollywood was bringing back the Saw franchise, Chris Rock wouldn’t have been at the top of my list.

-God bless Chloe Sevigny – aka the only person in the world who can wear this outfit and not incite ridicule.

Sarah Jessica Parker is over those annual tabloid rumours about her marriage.

Always Be My Maybe‘s previous trailer already made it looked great but holy shit is that Keanu???

Bill Murray Talks “Crazy-Handsome” George Clooney in Vanity Fair


-I can’t wait to devour Bill Murray’s Vanity Fair cover story. (I mean, I’d be even more excited if he combined this interview with a good movie instead of just a Netflix holiday special, but I’m not greedy.)

Adele looks lovely on the new Rolling Stone cover, in which she talks about her fear of fame and her lack of a squad.

Brangelina’s By the Sea promo blitz continues with the release of photos of Angelina taken by Brad, a joint interview in which they talk about her cancer scare, and a family trip to a bookstore.

-Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt get emotional in the moody new By the Sea trailer.

-I love all of the weird Tom Cruise stories that have leaked from Leah Remini‘s book. He gets super angry when he wants cookies, and he plays adult hide-and-seek. Charming.

Leah also says her inspiration for leaving Scientology was Nicole Kidman.

-Meanwhile, here’s the first look at Tom and Nicole’s adopted daughter and her new hubby after their secret wedding. One assumes he isn’t an “SP.”

Halle Berry‘s first ex husband went on a Twitter rant about how she uses men and then tosses them aside. Cool story, bro.

-There’s more rumblings that Fox is eyeing an X Files spinoff starring Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose. I love both of those people but how about a brand new, original concept, Hollywood?

-The People’s Choice Awards nominations are out, reminding us all that the people are stupid and shouldn’t be allowed to decide things. The Age of Adaline going up against Straight Out of Compton for dramatic movie? Really?? (I’ll allow The Duff’s nomination in comedic movie, though. I’ll ride for that film forever.)

Jon Stewart signed a four-year production partnership with HBO that includes “topical short-form digital content… refreshed throughout the day.” The Daily Show, multiple times a day? Yes, please!

-It’s becoming increasingly harder to pretend Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton aren’t dating. Let’s keep trying though, k?

-Mean, Gwen talked about returning to work after her split: “I wanted to be in my bed, like, crying.”

-Ohhh, Lisa Kudrow just joined the Girl on the Train cast. Consider me intrigued!

-Jay Z’s leaked tour rider shows that he really only cares about his daughter, which is super sweet.

-Speaking of happy families, Jimmy Fallon is in damage control mode.

Mark Hamill and John Boyega have joined the campaign to let a terminally ill fan see The Force Awakens early.

Mark Ruffalo just reached 2M Twitter followers, and posted a lovely video message about it.

Jimmy Fallon and Bryan Cranston spent a lot of time bumping into each other’s butts during their fake soap opera skit.

Mindy Kaling once again proves she’s my spirit animal with her spoilers tweet.

-Ugh. I couldn’t even make it through all of the trailer to James Franco’s The Sound and The Fury (or, as Vulture calls it, his latest book report.)

-I love and adore everything about Robot Chicken’s take on CW shows.

Jeremy Renner: “It’s Not My Job” to Help Female Costars Negotiate Equal Pay


Jeremy Renner still shouldn’t be allowed to give interviews. When asked about fellow American Hustle actor Bradley Cooper‘s recent vow to help his female costars negotiate their salaries, Renner sniffed “that’s not my job.” Also, he said this when he was on a press tour for a booze brand. Is that his job? Ugh. Just go back to flipping houses and only reading the parts of the script that you’re in, Hawkeye.

-Hold the phone. Jenny Lewis and Bill Murray are dating now?!? WHAT.

-In other weird relationship news, Henry Cavill is reportedly dating a 19-year-old college freshman. Not so super, Superman.

Anna Kendrick on Billy on the Street is delightful. She really gets into the head of Katy Perry’s cat!

Sandra Bullock is denying those rumours that she recently adopted another child, saying “There’s only one adopted child in my household.” Weirdly worded, but ok.

-Watch Andrew Garfield try to answer Buzzfeed’s questions while putting together an IKEA chair.

Adele wrote a letter to fans about her new album, saying “Sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened.”

-It’s official: Chris Rock will host the next Oscars.

Aaron Paul wasn’t the only celeb  to celebrate Back to the Future day, but he was certainly the cutest.

Kate Hudson is still not going to answer your questions about sexing Nick Jonas, mmm-kay?

-Yikes. Yahoo says they lost $42 million from Community and their two other original series.

-NBC  is proving yet again that they’ve run out of ideas by planning a Cruel Intentions TV show. It will follow Sebastian and Annette‘s son. NOPE.

-There’s a reason this Jurassic World deleted scene was deleted.

Grantland’s feature on Jan Hooks is a heartbreakingly wonderful portrait of a complicated, brilliant woman.

-What was Blake Lively‘s point with staging this pap opp? Just to show us that she can coordinate her outfit with her baby’s blanket??

Beyonce and Nicki Minaj put on a raunchy performance of “Feeling Myself” at last night’s Tidal event.

-Meanwhile, Beyonce gritting her teeth and saying “stop it” to her assistant is giving me life.

Amy Schumer is shooting down that talk of her stealing jokes.

Natalie Portman gets her Western on in the new trailer for Jane’s Got a Gun.

-I love Jennifer Lawrence (because I’m a living, breathing human on Earth) but every time I see a new Joy trailer, I can’t help but think this role should be played by an actress in her forties instead.
