Billie Eilish Moves On

Billie Eilish rolling stone

Billie Eilish talked to Rolling Stone about planning to move out of her parent’s house, how she only watches TV on her phone (“I can’t go to the bathroom without watching something on my phone. I can’t brush my teeth. I can’t wash my face”) and getting over a fame-related traumatic experience (“I went through some crazy shit, and it really affected me and made me not want to go near anyone ever”). She also brought her dog to the photoshoot.

-Meanwhile, her rumoured boyfriend is apologizing for old racist and homophobic social posts.

Anthony Mackie is getting some heat on Twitter for his comments about people shipping his character with Sebastian Stan‘s in Falcon & The Winter Solider. “So many things are twisted and convoluted. There’s so many things that people latch on to with their own devices to make themselves relevant and rational…It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool…You can’t do that anymore, because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalize themselves.” I agree with this thread that actors shouldn’t be required to speak on the writers’ queerbaiting — though having an answered prepared wouldn’t hurt. But I really agree with this thread about how queer audiences are desperate for representation because there’s so little of it in Hollywood, and it’s really not hard to just say “hey man, you do you.” Mark Hamill had it right when he was asked questions like this.

-Though full reviews for Black Widow are still embargoed, the first initial reactions are positive, with Florence Pugh getting lots of shout outs for her performance.

-There’s talk that Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are already considering marriage.

Hugh Grant is shooting down rumours that he has a green card marriage.

-I liked H.E.R.’s profile in Variety. “H.E.R. isn’t a persona; it’s not something that I think I have to turn on. It’s me: my true self.”

-It feels like Stephen Colbert is having a really busy week trying to throw his guests a life raft and stop them from saying more — and they just won’t.

-The Friends reunion is the gift that keeps on giving. On James Corden’s show last night, he aired a clip of a “carpool karaoke” segment he filmed with the cast at the time.

Marc Maron was taking some hits on Twitter over an interview he did with William Zabka (in which he admitted he’s never seen the show, so the actor stepped in.

Meghan Markle can now add “NYT best-selling author” to her resume.

-This could become a problem with travel. Springsteen On Broadway and Jimmy Fallon’s show will not allow audience members who were vaccinated with AstraZeneca.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom star in this dystopian-themed short to fight voter suppression.

-Um, Nicolas Cage is in a new movie about a truffle hunter who searches for his pig after she is kidnapped. It’s called Pig. I can’t believe this is real.

-Here’s the first trailer for Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door, starring Will FerrellPaul Rudd, Casey Wilson and Kathryn Hahn.

Gillian Anderson, Cynthia Erivo and More Talk Pay Equity

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson gathered via Zoom for THR’s TV actress roundtable. They discussed pay, with Anderson talking about being offered a tenth of what David Duchovny was offered for the reboot. “That was the point where I was like, “Fuck this. I’m actually going to talk about this [publicly].” Erivo also discussed salary (“I’m a Black woman. That has a lot to do with how you’re paid, how you’re hired, if you’re hired, the way you’re hired — it affects everything”) and how she still has to ask for Black makeup artists on set. “It isn’t about vanity, it’s about making sure that whoever I’m playing is represented in the right way because they understand how to work with my skin tone and my hair.”

-It’s been a not-great week for Matthew Perry. First there was chatter about his appearance on the reunion, and now comes news that he split from fiancée Molly Hurwitz.

-In her new, self-directed video for “Lost Cause,” Billie Eilish hosts a slumber party for a group of girlfriends.

-Now that Taylor Swift has been cast in a David O. Russell movie, all the terrible stories about him are resurfacing. I can’t believe this guy still gets jobs, let alone any actor wants to work with him. Even George Clooney wanted to hurt him.

-Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu wrote an explosive Facebook post about how how frustrated he had become with the show’s producers and his fellow cast members. I’m sure all of his complaints are valid, but this is a surprising flex when you’re about to lead a Marvel movie.

-Thor Love and Thunder is done filming, and the photo that they posted makes me want to write Chris Hemsworth a note excusing him from the gym for the next year.

Ellie Kemper was linked to a white supremacist group after a 22-year-old photo of her surfaced on Twitter but the truth was more complicated — she was crowned Queen of Love and Beauty at an event that had connections to the klan in its early years, but has since become a debutante ball. Still problematic, but less so.

-Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will play Lizzie Bennett in a contemporary rom-com for Netflix that’s “in the spirit of Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.” Yes, I’ll take all the Pride and Prejudice adaptations.

This interview with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga is hilarious. She asks the interviewer over and over if he believes in “spiritual warfare.”

-I work in social media and I don’t believe for a second that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop team posted that photo of Ben Affleck without her knowledge.

Sophia Bush says she was fetishized on One Tree Hill. “My girlfriends from One Tree Hill and I talk about that all the time. We’re like, girls don’t talk to each other the way we had to talk to each other on that show, and also don’t behave the way we had to behave on that show. Come on! That was, like, some gross older man’s fantasy. And it was icky.”

-Every new trailer for Apple TV’s Physical, starring Rose Byrne, gets me more and more excited.

Gael García Bernal fights against time in the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.

-There is a lot of tiring discourse about Billie Eilish‘s decision to show off a more revealing look in Vogue. She’s 19 — trying on different identities is part of growing up. In the interview she says “It’s all about what makes you feel good. If you want to get surgery, go get surgery. If you want to wear a dress that somebody thinks that you look too big wearing, f**k it.” And she sounds like she was completely in control of the photoshoot, saying in her IG post that the magazine “respected her vision”.

-Meanwhile, her post about it has become the fastest ever Instagram photo to reach 1M likes – in just 6 minutes.

Suzanne Rogers posing with Trump has really shaken up the Canadian fashion industry.

-This is a great interview with The OC’s costume designer about Seth Cohen’s immaculate fits.

-This is the first NFT I support: the girl in the “Disaster Girl” meme is now an NFT worth half a million dollars.

Evan Peters needed a hug after THAT scene on the last episode of Mare Of Easttown. Fair.

-Pose’s executive producer, writer and director Janet Mock had lots to say at the show’s premiere last week, including “I want to get paid more. Why am I making $40,000 an episode, huh? Do you know who the fuck I am?” (That does seem low for a showrunner.)

-Marvel dropped a new video and the second half features  a list of premiere dates for bunch of new films from this year until 2023, the reveal of the next Black Panther title (it’ll fittingly be called Black Panther: Wakanda Forever), as well as the first footage of Chloe Zhao‘s The Eternals.

Ewan McGregor plays the legendary real-life fashion designer in the first trailer for Netflix’s Halston from Ryan Murphy.

-Here’s the first trailer for Stephen Amell’s new Starz drama, which debuts in August. It seems a bit like Friday Night Lights, but with wrestling instead of football.
