Lili Reinhart Goes Glam for Allure

lili reinhart allure

-I love everything about the styling of Riverdale star Lili Reinhart‘s Allure cover spread.

Macaulay Culkin‘s Esquire cover story is great. He talks about wanting to start a family with girlfriend Brenda Strong (“We’re figuring it out, making the timing work'”), he once again comments on his relationship with Michael Jackson (“He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back. The guy has passed on. If anything…right now is a good time to speak up. And if I had something to speak up about, I would totally do it”), and he calls out James Franco for asking him about it when he saw him on a plane (“I give him a little nod as we’re putting our bags overhead. Hey, how you doing? Good, how ya doing? And it was right after the Leaving Neverland documentary came out, and he goes, ‘So, that documentary!’ And that was all he said. I was like, ‘Uh-huh.’ Silence. So then he goes, ‘So what do you think?’ And I turned to him and I go, ‘Do you wanna talk about your dead friend?’ And he sheepishly went, ‘No, I don’t.’ So I said, ‘Cool, man, it was nice to see you'”).

Brad Pitt‘s didn’t just win an Oscar. This award season has rehabilitated his image — and now he even has a gushing People cover story to prove it.

Sophie Turner is pregnant and expecting her first child with Joe Jonas. I don’t know why I thought she was way older than 23.

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy‘s friendship is goals. They recently shot a movie in Toronto and were spotted hanging out together all over Yorkville during their downtime.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union introduced the world to their 12-year-old transgender child Zaya with a sweet message.  Wade‘s oldest child, who just celebrated his 18th birthday, also shared photos from earlier in their childhood with a lovely message of support.

Lana Condor told a story on James Corden‘s show about how she thought she was stealthily following David Beckham around a Whole Foods until he called her out on it.

-Speaking of Lana, in honour of PS: I Still Love You dropping on Netflix today, Netflix has made To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before available for anyone — even if you don’t have a Netflix account.

Jameela Jamil‘s bad month continues. Now she’s refuting claims that she has Munchausen Syndrome after a Tweet went viral with screengrabs of all the interviews she’s given in which she discusses a wide array of ailments.

-Since she wore her Oscar cape, Natalie Portman‘s history with female directors has been called in question, but it seems like she’s championed women directors and attempted to work with them more than a lot of other actors have.

-Meanwhile, let’s take a look at famous actors’ track records. Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Ryan Gosling and Matt Damon have never worked with female directors. Keanu Reeves does better with 13 female directors (out of 69 films) and David Oyelowo is doing best: he worked with 5 female directors in 2018 alone.

Lauren Graham is playing the Gordon Bombay role in The Mighty Ducks reboot for Disney+ and I dig it.

Rick Moranis is returning from a 24-year acting hiatus to star in a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids reboot.

-We have our first trailer for Wes Anderson‘s The French Dispatch, starring Timothée Chalamet, Sairsoe Ronan, Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody, Benicio Del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Léa Seydoux, Frances McDormand, and Jeffrey Wright.

Stars Shine at Oscar After-Parties

-Once again, I liked a lot of celebs’ after-party looks more than their Oscar red carpet choices, including Gal Gadot’sFlorence Pugh’s, Greta Gerwig’s and Billie Eilish’s (who hung out with Timothee Chalamet). Other stellar after party looks included Hunter Schafer, Tessa Thompson, Rihanna, and Tracee Ellis Ross.

Adele also showed up to an after-party and she was barely recognizable. I mean, I hope she’s happy and healthy but this is drastic.

-ICYMI: here are our picks for Oscars’ best and worst dressed.

-I’m still in (happy) shock that Parasite won last night. The ranked ballot (which only applies to the Best Picture category) certainly helped; lots of people would have had to choose it as their top pick, but a lot of people would have had to have it as their 2nd or 3rd choice.

-I’m still not sold on the Parasite TV series, but this is intriguing.

Bong Joon Ho apologized to the Oscar engravers: “I’m so sorry for the hard work, there’s too many.” As Linda Holmes pointed out, this guy spent the awards season giving a master class on how to appear “humble-but-aloof, grateful-but-not-thirsty, honored-but-not-waiting-for-your-approval.”

-This is actually quite sweet. Shia LaBeouf was offered to present an Oscar. He said he would do it if he could share that moment with his Peanut Butter Falcon co-star Zach Gottsagen.

Camila Morrone attended the Oscars with bf Leonardo DiCaprio — and she wore a wedding dress.

-With the revelation that Brad Pitt likes Letterkenny, paired with him recently telling Marc Maron that he’s watched his comedy series multiple times, I’m now picturing him sitting at home and watching quirky, under-the-radar comedies all day.

-The Oscars telecast reached an all-time low rating, dropping sharply from last year. It did much better in Canada (proportionally).

-The night before the Oscars was the Spirit Awards, where Laura Dern was serenaded with her own song.

-Also at the Spirit Awards, Noah Baumbach thanked Adam Sandler for helping to fund his films.

Penn Badgley and wife Domino Kirke are expecting their first child together, and revealed they had suffered two miscarriages in a row.

Janet Jackson just announced a new tour. I don’t usually hit up stadium shows, but I saw her on the Unbreakable tour and she was amazing.

Beyoncé is working on something new and it somehow involves her mother’s art.

Chris Pratt got salty on Twitter. What would Jesus say?

-This is a great deep-dive into the trajectory of Margot Robbie, who’s managed to change her Hollywood destiny by becoming a producer.

Bill Nye dancing to Lizzo on the runway at New York Fashion Week is the purest thing you’ll see all week.

Mulan got a new trailer:

Hollywood Preps for the Oscars

Rebel Wilson‘s post seems to indicate that Brad and Leo will be front row at the Oscars — and on an aisle. I know there’s no host this year, but if one of the presenters does in-crowd schtick, they’ll be prime targets.

-One of the most predictable categories at Sunday night’s Oscars is Best Supporting Actor, with everyone pretty certain that Brad Pitt has it in the bag. This is a good look on how he ran the perfect campaign.

-Meanwhile, most of the stars at Sundance believe Pitt‘s character killed his wife in the movie.

-Another day, another “honest” Oscar ballot, this one from a producer. His take on Hustlers is disgusting, he felt he needed “a scorecard to keep track of [Little Women’s] timeline” and his favourite movie of last year was Yesterday. It’s so sexiest and dumb, I can’t even imagine what it was like before the Hollywood Reporter toned it down.

-I’m am really loving all the in-depth cinematography interviews this week. Here’s one with Uncut Gems’ cinematographer on a camera tool for focus-pulling that kept the film’s haywire movements in focus even though the actors didn’t use marks.

Greta Gerwig did Vogue’s 73 Questions on the Sony lot.

-Whoa. The six stars of Friends are reportedly set to get paid $3-4 million each to reunite for what basically sounds like an hourlong interview.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now making bank doing private events.

Gillian Anderson did an ASMR video to promote the new season of Sex Education and she’s really, really good at it.

John Mulaney had to cancel a show in Toronto because he’ll be hosting SNL that weekend — and he got Lorne Michaels to write him a note excusing his absence.

-Also, when did John Mulaney go from looking “unconventionally attractive” to “we all want to climb him like a tree“?

-This is disappointing. Despite great reviews (it’s currently at 83% fresh) Birds of Prey is currently tracking for a $33.5M opening weekend, below its $50M-$55M projections.

-In happier box office news, Little Women just surpassed $100 million at domestic box office.

This tweet about a terrible, terrible profile Vanity Fair once did on Jessica Simpson, plus Ronan Farrow’s story about the first time he met her has everyone realizing that we all probably owe her an apology.

-I do not know what Harvey Weinstein‘s defense attorney, Donna Rotunno, was trying to do by appearing on The Daily podcast today, but whatever positioning or sympathy she was hoping for totally backfired. Near the end of the interview, the NYT reporter asked a final, seemingly last-minute question: had she ever been sexually assaulted? “I have not,” Rotunno answered, and that seemed like it would be the end. But after a pause she added “Because I would never put myself in that position.” I was listening to it on the subway and I GASPED.

-Well, this sucks: a judge sided with Dr. Luke and Kesha was found guilty of defamation for telling Lady Gaga that Dr. Luke raped Katy Perry. She must now pay him $370,000.

-Survivor host Jeff Probst reveals he recently suffered from amnesia for three hours. Apparently its called Transient Global Amnesia and it’s a real thing that can happen.

-This story about inadvertently being a jerk to Colin Firth is hilarious. “Firth had finally buried his heartthrob past, won an Oscar for a serious movie, and as if in a horror movie, I reached out from the grave and grabbed his well-formed ankle.”

-A new sitcom called Mythic Quest is out today on Apple+ and critics are loving it.

-This has been talked about a lot on Twitter so I’m glad The Hollywood Reporter is putting a spotlight on how productions don’t provide makeup artists and hair stylists who are familiar with natural textures and dark skin tones.

Jesse Eisenberg, Clémence Poésy and Ed Helms star in the trailer for the WWII drama Resistance.
