Brad Pitt

Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Millie Bobby Brown tries to make a connection in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters teaser.

Judi Dench is accused of being a spy in the Red Joan trailer.

Chris Pratt Is Engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger

-Is anyone at all surprised by Chris Pratt’s engagement news? They’ve been subtly planting the seeds in the press for a while (pretty much shortly after they met at Justin Bieber‘s Zoe Church in L.A. ) Also, that photo he chose is so deeply unflattering.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, and I liked what some people wore there better than what they wore to the Golden Globes (Constance Wu, Charlize Theron, Sandra Oh), while I am very confused why some people (Julie Roberts, Amy Adams) basically did a repeat of what they wore last weekend.

-Also last night: Rami Malek finally got his moment with Nicole Kidman.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards handing Roma the big prize is upping its buzz. I’m still not a huge fan (it’s clearly a technical masterpiece but it also left me cold), but Guillermo del Toro’s Twitter thread on why he loves it is very persuasive.

Meghan Markle reportedly told some children at today’s event that her due date is in April, and they’re not going to find out the gender beforehand.

Kylie Jenner has been beaten by a picture of an egg for the most-liked Instagram post ever. 2019 is already wild, y’all.

-Winter is coming — in the middle of April. HBO released a longer teaser and announced that Game of Thrones’ final season will premiere April 14.

-Speaking of HBO, last night’s True Detective premiere did way better in the ratings than I assumed it would.

-I loved that Kayleigh Donaldson’s Twitter thread outed an Instagram “influencer’s” scam conference and got the remaining dates shut down. (Donaldson hosts a really good industry podcast called The Hollywood Read if you’re looking for something interesting to stick in your ear holes.)

-Speaking of industry rumbling, the Academy is now fighting with its largest branch — SAG-AFTRA, who is calling out the Oscars for trying to prevent talent from presenting at other award shows using “intimidation.” Remember last year when the Academy added all those young, diverse voters and we had such hope? Between this and the hosting debacle, what happened?

Brad Pitt is hitting the Oscar trail for If Beale Street Could Talk (which I finally saw and LOVED). His Plan B production company is on quite a streak.

Miley Cyrusbirthday post to Liam Hemsworth is incredibly sweet. It’s weird how much I’m rooting for these two.

-Huh, all those blind items might be onto something. Tidal is under investigation in Norway over “fake streams.”

Travis Scott say he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl with Maroon 5 on the condition the NFL would make a $500,000 donation to his charity of choice (but people don’t seem impressed).

-It turns out that if you want to interest me in a Perry Mason reboot, putting it on HBO and casting Matthew Rhys is the lead pretty much does it.

-I love that Mindy Kaling retweeted this amazing thread of Kelly Kapoor as Pride & Prejudice characters.

-Speaking of great Twitter threads, I’m late to the game but last week HBO gave out Sopranos-inspired nicknames to any celeb/verified who asked for one, and it was amazing.

Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte Riley have had a baby boy –– but despite reports they didn’t name him after Forrest Gump. Whew!

Ryan Coogler sounds awesome. Women who worked with him on the set of Black Panther said he created an environment where they could “cut past any of the normal bureaucracy of male dominance.”

-There is a new movie coming out starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn and I have never nope’d anything harder.

-In the Little Woods trailerTessa Thompson must return to the dangerous life she thought she’d left behind.

CBS Paid Eliza Dushku $9.5M After Michael Weatherly Harassed her

-Aw man. I’ve loved Eliza Dushku since she played Faith on Buffy, and this NYT story on her harassment at the hands of Bull costar Michael Weatherly and the secret $9.5 million settlement that followed is horrible. He should have been fired immediately, and he most certainly should be fired now that it’s come to light.

The custody agreement between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt doesn’t seem to include children Pax and Maddox, possibly because Pitt has no hope of repairing his relationship with them.

Gal Gadot‘s support of Jason Momoa is very sweet.

-Speaking of sweet, I kind of like that Miley Cyrus calls Liam Hemsworth her “survival partner.

-Here’s the full trailer for Lindsay Lohan‘s MTV reality show.

-This video of Mary Queen of Scots costars Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan answering the web’s most searched questions is a total delight.

-All of the royal drama is really starting to bum me out.

-I forgot that a Downtown Abbey movie was in the works. Here’s the first trailer.
