Timothée Chalamet Talks Paparazzi Pics

Timothée-Chalamet-GQ

Timothée Chalamet covers the new issue of GQ and talks about getting papped making out with Lily-Rose Depp on a boat last year (“I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life. I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.’ And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale? And then people are like: ‘This is a P.R. stunt.’ A P.R. stunt?! Do you think I’d want to look like that in front of all of you?!”)

Lily Collins is trying to convince us that her character in Emily in Paris is only 22 and everyone just nope-d that real quick.

-At last night’s Billboard Awards, Lizzo accepted her trophy in a black dress with the word “VOTE” emblazoned multiple times in white lettering and used her speech to encourage her supporters to raise their voices against suppression.

-100 Hollywood figures (including NBC stars like the This Is Us cast and Mariska Hargitay) sent a petition to Comcast and NBCUniversal executives protesting the timing of tonight’s Trump town hall, which is set to air opposite ABC’s Biden town hall. NBC News says the town hall will proceed as scheduled despite the growing backlash.

Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira‘s series adaptation of Americanah is not going ahead at HBO Max. This one hurts.

-Meanwhile, this is a good look at the recent wave of un-renewals, and whether the rising costs of covid-proofing shows could be the thing that finally levels Peak TV.  It also touches on the fact that most of the un-renewals so far have been series about, and often made by, women.

Billie_Eilish_GQ

Billie Eilish is on the cover of GQ, in which she talks about past relationships (“Here’s a bomb for you: I have never felt desired. My past boyfriends never made me feel desired. None of them”), and her style (“Sometimes I dress like a boy. Sometimes I dress like a swaggy girl. And sometimes I feel trapped by this persona that I have created because sometimes I think people view me not as a woman”).

-Glee’s Amber Riley spoke out on the Lea Michele controversy, saying this was the first time in two years that the actress had called her. “I’m not going to say that Lea Michele is racist. That’s not what I’m saying…She’s also pregnant and I think that everybody needs to chill. Y’all dragged her for a couple of days. But at the same time, in my inbox there are a lot of black actors and actresses telling me their stories and were letting me know they have dealt with the same things being on set, being terrorized by the white girls that are the leads of the show.”

-This story about how Kiersey Clemons fell in love with her stunt double Ebony De La Haye on the set of Sweetheart is so sweet and exactly what I needed today. (Clemons is in the Nick Offerman movie Hearts Beat Loud, which is now on Netflix and is quickly becoming my go-to comfort movie.)

Ellen Degeneres has responded to the backlash over her Black Lives Matter comments.

And I realized the only wrong thing to say is to say nothing because George Floyd’s life mattered and Breonna Taylor’s life mattered and Philando Castile’s life mattered and Tamir Rice’s life mattered, and so did so many other people whose names we know and whose names we do not know.”

John Boyega Has No Time for Racists

John Boyega tweeted “I really f*cking hate racists” and people got all huffy in his replies and he was NOT having it. His responses were amazing. Then he took it up a notch on Instagram Live: “I’ll say it again. F*ck you racist white people. I said what I said. If you don’t f*cking like it, go suck a dick…If you’re a fan of me and you support my work and you’re racist and you’re arguing with what I was saying, f*ck off, you f*cking dickheads.” I love him with my whole heart.

-In her new Variety cover story, Gabrielle Union is breaking her silence on what went down on America’s Got Talent.

-This is a pretty great breakdown of that Tatler cover story on Kate Middleton. Meanwhile, Kensington Palace has hit back at Tatler’s article, saying “This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication.” Which is surprising, seeing as many believe the article was sanctioned by Kate.

Billie Eilish has shared a short film about body shaming titled Not My Responsibility.

Josh Gad brought Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah and Ron Howard back together for a Splash reunion.

Jack Nicholson knew my name, Ron. He starts buying me drinks, I said, ‘I gotta go shoot’ and he said, ‘You’ll be alright kid, don’t worry about it.’ I never went to bed, Ron, I never went to bed!”
