Idris Elba has tested positive for coronavirus. He posted a video and seems to be in good spirits, saying he has no symptoms and was tested because he came into contact with someone who has it.

Kristofer Hivju, the actor who plays Tormund on Game of Thrones, also tested positive but is only experiencing “mild symptoms of a cold.”

-In positive news, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are already out of the hospital. (If you are feeling down, Sunday’s episode of The Daily podcast, which revisits Taffy Brodesser-Akner‘s NYT profile on Hanks, cheered me up A LOT.)

-People are sharing this old Scrubs clip about how quickly viruses can spread, and if that doesn’t convince people to stay home as much as they can, I don’t know what will.

-This is the (only?) good thing about the world going crazy: Universal is breaking the theatrical “window” by speeding the release of four films currently in cinemas (Invisible Man, The Hunt, Trolls World Tour and Emma) to video on demand starting this weekend for 48 hour, $20 rentals. This is HUGE. I wonder if they’ll be able to put the genie back in the bottle after life returns to normal but we’ve all gotten used to watching new releases in our homes.

-Disney+ kicked it off by releasing Frozen 2 early.

Jann Arden hosted a Facebook Live to perform a free concert, and it was great! Watch it here.

-Riverdale’s KJ Apa shared his workout tips in Mens Health. That slider push up thing is *hard* so props to him.

Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat were spotted grabbing burgers together at In-n-Out, and he’s wearing the same outfit he was wearing the night before. If it was anyone else I’d think it’s a walk of shame situation, but he doesn’t strike me as a guy who cares to change clothes everyday.

Donald Glover released a surprise new album — but already took it down.

Orlando Bloom says he was celibate for six months before meeting Katy Perry because he was following advice from a friend. “It takes away the idea of going to a party and thinking, ‘Who am I going to meet?’ I was suddenly like, ‘Oh, I can have a relationship with a woman that is just friends.'” Um, he needed a friend to explain that to him?

-Add to your binge list: Little Fires Everywhere, starring Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, drops on Wednesday.

-The only glowing spot in the new season of Westworld appears to be Kid Cudi.

Betty Gilpin interviews continue to be a delight. She says of The Hunt” controversy: “When the movie was canceled originally, I was like, ‘Oh, don’t worry — I already canceled it in my brain.’ Sorry, Twitter, you’re no match for my inner self-saboteur.”

-This is terrible: a production assistant was paralyzed in an accident on the Vancouver set of Batwoman.

-I’m very intrigued by the trailer for the new Amazon series Upload (only 38% because it stars an Amell.)

 

Scarlett Johansson Goes Solo

Scarlett Johansson black widow

Scarlett Johansson covers EW to promote Black Widow. She talks about only having met Florence Pugh a few times before they filmed their first scene together (“Immediately we were in each other’s space, like, ‘All right, I’m going to grab your armpit, and you put your hand under my knee in a pretzel'”) and why she didn’t want the movie to just be “like Bourne, but with a woman” (“I hope that this film continues pushing that boundary, so that we can actually have more female superheroes who are inherently female, and aren’t just Batman in heels or whatever”).

-The Hollywood Reporter just released their stars and their stylists issue, which I always adore.

-Wow. Harvey Weinstein just got 23 years in jail, which is close to the maximum possible sentence, if his terms were run consecutively, of 29 years. The judge said “This is your first conviction, but not your first offense.”

-Meanwhile, before sentencing he said in the courtroom “I am totally confused. I think men are confused about these issues. Thousands of men are losing due process. I’m worried about this country.” It’s pretty ballsy to complain about a lack of due process — when you’ve just been afforded it.

Jenna Dewan gave birth to baby No. 2, a boy she named Callum Michael Rebel Kazee.

Wendy Williams called out Nicki Minaj for marrying Kenneth Petty, who registered as a sex offender this week following a 1995 conviction for first-degree attempted rape. “You should’ve never married him because now you’ve ruined everything about what your brand could be.”

-This video of today’s daytime talk shows with no audiences due to covid-19 is very eerie.

Naomi Campbell showed up to a flight from LA to NYC on Tuesday clad in a full hazmat suit, surgical mask and latex gloves included. Look, I had to self-isolate today due to this damn virus and even I think this is irresponsible and panic-inducing.

-Westworld is trying to make it seem like its truly reinvented itself for season 3, but in the end it seems like it’s just more of the same.

Jon Bernthal is set to star in an American Gigolo TV reboot at Showtime and wow, do I love that casting!

-Speaking of shows I want in my eyeballs immediately, Scott Foley has been cast to headline a dramedy about the ballet.

Brad Pitt is coming to HGTV for Celebrity IOU With Drew and Jonathan Scott. Each episode will feature a star getting hands-on with the brothers to imagine a design plan to reward their mentors, friends or family member.

-The Ellen Show got the three Love Is Blind couples together for a game of Never Have I Ever.

-Meanwhile, I’m kind of shocked that Gwyneth Paltrow watched Love Is Blind.

John Krasinski says he and Ryan Reynolds “turned into 14-year-old boys” when they got to meet a surprisingly friendly owl at Reynolds’ daughter’s birthday party.

Colin Firth and Julie Walters star in a new adaptation of The Secret Garden.

Keri Russell Talks Style, Sleep and Sex

Keri Russell Shape magazine

Keri Russell covers Shape, in which she says her husband Matthew Rhys calls her style “Sam Shepard from The Right Stuff” (“We laughed really hard about it, but I realized that’s my true fashion—like tough guys. Growing up, I didn’t play with Barbies or dolls. I wanted the adventures”), talks about doing the horror movie Antlers (“I’m a total scaredy-cat, but I think the reason why it’s OK for me to do scary movies is because I’m scared all the time. I’ll be in the bathroom getting ready, and Matthew will be coming down the hall and he’ll warn me, ‘I’m about to come in.’ And I’ll still scream!”), and reveals her feel-good essentials (“I need those little bits of time to myself. And time to see girlfriends. If you have that, if you have good sleep, if you have good sex—all those things just make you feel great”).

Harvey Weinstein‘s defense team has asked for a 5-year sentence, citing his charity work and the stress of the allegations: “Mr. Weinstein cannot walk outside without being heckled, he has lost his means to earn a living, simply put, his fall from grace has been historic, perhaps unmatched in the age of social media.”

-Also, according to unsealed court documents, he once said in an email Jennifer Aniston “should be killed.”

-First reactions to movies when the full reviews are still embargoed tend not to be super reliable, but people seem enthralled by the live-action Mulan.

Brad Pitt skipped the BAFTAs to be at one of his daughter’s sides during her surgery.

-Meanwhile, sources close to Brad Pitt insist his relationship with Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat is “strictly platonic.” I’m more intrigued by who approaches them to talk during that video of them at a concert. Is that Beck?!

Corey Feldman accused Charlie Sheen of sexually abusing Corey Haim in his new documentary, which screened last night. This is an old allegation that Sheen publicly denied and sued the National Enquirer over in 2017. At the time, Haim’s mother sided with Sheen.

-The Outsider was one of those shows that didn’t get a lot of buzz, but it felt like everyone I know was watching it. The ratings were surprisingly good, too.

-In a video interlude shown during her current world tour Billie Eilish performs a poem about her unique style. “If what I wear is comfortable, I am not a woman. If I shed the layers, I am a slut. Though you’ve never seen my body, you still judge me for it. Why?”

-The Flip The Switch challenge has been sweeping TikTok the past couple of weeks, and now celebrities are starting to get in on the action.
