Reese Witherspoon Gets Goofy

reese witherspoon vanity fair

Reese Witherspoon‘s Vanity Fair cover photo almost seems like an outtake — but I kind of love it. The actress said of the pic on Instagram: “When I first saw this cover, I thought, ‘Oh my goodness… what a goofball!’ But here I am captured, probably snort-laughing, in all my goofy glory!”

-In the interview, Reese talks about the #MeToo movement and what it was like as a child actor working with adults: “Bad things happened to me. I was assaulted, harassed. It wasn’t isolated. I recently had a journalist ask me about it. She said, Well, why didn’t you speak up sooner? And I thought, that’s so interesting to talk to someone who experienced those things and then judge them for the way they decide to speak about them. You tell your story in your own time when you’re ready.”

-Speaking of great covers, Harry Styles covers Beauty Papers in nothing but Gucci fishnets.

-During isolation, Miley Cyrus is hosting a “talk show” every day on Instagram Live and today’s guest was Demi Lovato.

Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams have teamed up on Instagram to recruit celebs to read stories in support of children who are locked out of school.

-From offering safety and hand-washing tips to recommending which shows to binge watch, stars are flooding social media with tips to get through the crisis.

John Legend did a #TogetherAtHome concert on Instagram Live today, and announced the other musicians set to perform via livestream include Miguel, Jhené Aiko, Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello and Charlie Puth.

Vanessa Hudgens is walking back the comments she made on an Instagram Live yesterday, saying they were “taken out of context.” She had said: “Um, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bulls–t. I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?”

Emma Stone has reportedly had to postpone her wedding, which was supposed to take place this weekend in LA.

-Everything about this crisis is terrible — except for this story: Jared Leto says he just came back from 12 days in silent meditation in the desert and had no idea what was happening.  Way to stay on brand, bud.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively announced they are donating $1 million to Feed America and Food Banks Canada.

Tom Cruise is back to shooting the new Mission Impossible movie, social distancing be damned.

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are my favourite celebrity couple and this just kicked it to a whole new level.

-Meanwhile, while doing press for Little Fires Everywhere Joshua said he “can’t wait to meet his baby girl.”

-Birds of Prey is the next big movie being released early on video on demand. Keep it coming, Hollywood!

Dylan Sprouse stars in the Banana Split trailer, about two girls who bond when one stars dating the other’s ex.

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan Reunite for Little Women

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan EW cover

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan are on the cover of EW’s November issue and every photo in this spread is so beautiful that I want it tattooed to the inside of my eyelids.

-There’s also a good new Vulture feature on Chalamet, in which he talks about being an Oscar-nominated leading man, a social-media phenomenon, and, most surprisingly, a fashion icon.

-I go away for a few days and Jennifer Aniston joins Instagram? Rude.

-Speaking of news I missed, the idea of Mandy Moore reliving her ’90s popstar days in a new ABC series is *chef’s kiss*

-I loved her on Jane the Virgin but seriously, how many times is Gina Rodriguez going to screw up with the Black community? (Here’s the now-deleted video.) And at what point are celebrities going to realize that saying “I’m sorry if I offended you” doesn’t actually qualify as an apology?!

-Ah crap. Nicole Cliffe (who is usually pretty reliable) is tweeting about how she’s heard lots of not great stories about Jeff Goldblum‘s interactions with women. Universe, can we not have *one* unproblematic fave?!?

-Speaking of men who do not have a good reputation, FX has fired The Mayans showrunner Kurt Sutter for being an “abrasive dick“. According to THR, multiple complaints were made about his behavior on the set of the series.

Jonah Hill passed on role in The Batman opposite Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, so they just cast Paul Dano as The Riddler (which seems like an upgrade?).

Robert Pattinson can’t stop talking about his masturbation scene in The Lighthouse. I’ll allow it.

-This is an incredibly good interview with Ronan Farrow, in which he talks about NBC’s response to his book, how his sister Dylan serves as his conscience, and his engagement to Jon Lovett

Carrie Preston shared the wrap gift she once got from Julia Roberts and it’s kind of lovely.

Ryan Reynolds revealed that he and Blake Lively had another girl in a tweet encouraging Canadians to vote.

-As if  news of a Clueless reboot wasn’t upsetting enough, the description of it is insufferable.

-This is a great story about how a tweet got Ellen Page’s documentary into TIFF with just a month to spare.

-I’m really surprised that Taylor Swift hadn’t done a Tiny Desk Concert before now.

-When it comes to Fall TV’s broadcast debuts, Prodigal Son, Stumptown and The Unicorn are getting solid ratings, but it doesn’t look good for the other new shows, so I hope you haven’t been getting attached to Evil, Emergence, All Rise, Bluff City Law, Almost Family, Perfect Harmony or Sunnyside.

-I watched the Breaking Bad movie on a plane and cried. Like, actual tears. This deep-dive with Vince Gilligan into the making of it is worth your time.

Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s f-bomby Star Wars rant is kind of delightful (and surprisingly educational).

-Critics have seen the first six episodes of HBO’s The Watchmen — premiering Sunday from Damon Lindelof of Lost and The Leftovers — and the reviews are glowing.

-Speaking of new shows, Paul Rudd‘s Netflix series Living With Yourself is getting good but not great reviews.

-Here’s a new trailer for A Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson and hitting Netflix on Dec. 6.

Blake Lively Promotes A Simple Favor In The Weirdest Way Possible

-I enjoyed A Simple Favor way more than I thought I would despite the movie’s incessant plugging of Ryan Reynolds‘ gin brand (Paul Feig knows how to use Anne Kendrick‘s quirkiness and comic timing better than anyone else), but what the hell is this promo image that Blake Lively just tweeted?! The movie is doing well. They don’t need to do this.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are getting married this weekend, and tonight’s rehearsal dinner is reportedly being hosted by Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. Apparently the actual wedding will take place at her Hamptons home and will have only 20 guests.

-Pretty Little Liars’ star Ashley Benson is dating Cara Delevingne? Wut?

Jodie Whittaker explaining that her hometown is nicknamed “shat” in front of Ryan Gosling is good content. (I love her so much. When she does that proud little hair flip after Bradley Cooper asks if her husband is from Tucson? Amazing.)

Malia Obama appears in a music video for a band comprised of her fellow Harvard students, and it looks like she’s living her best life.

Riley Keough tweeted that she wanted to be cast in Riverdale — and now she is! I gave up on that show halfway through the first season, but this is a really good get for the CW.

-Tom Hardy being interviewed by kids is a whole lotta cute.

Bill Murray defended Dustin Hoffman against sexual harassment claims, calling him a “flirt.”  THIS IS NOT THE WEEK, BILL!

-For the first time in network TV history, shows with actors of color in lead roles outnumber shows with predominantly white casts. Buzzfeed talked to all of the heads of the networks about how this year the broadcasters may FINALLY have turned the corner on diversity.

-Speaking of great long reads, this feature on Robyn is excellent.

-Just ONE DAY after its first trailer dropped, Fox has pushed Dark Phoenix from Feb 14 to June 7. This is the film’s second major delay, though there’s speculation they may be planning a crossover with the MCU.

Bradley Cooper has denied reports that he’s going to take over from James Gunn as the director of the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

-Someone made a 10-minute loop of Lady Gaga belting out the best part of “Shallow” from A Star is Born, and wow I really needed that today.

-A Maroon 5 fan was arrested after storming the stage and confronting Adam Levine during last night’s Toronto gig. (It’s always interesting to see moments like this when singers are shocked into inaction but the song just keeps on going. That’s quite the backing vocal he’s got, there.)

Cardi B is reinventing herself as a fashion icon and it’s kinda working for me…

-Here’s the first trailer for Showtime’s Wall Street comedy Black Monday about the 1987 stock market crash starring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite in the Holmes & Watson trailer.
