-Wow, Vogue Japan totally lucked out when they put Hailey Baldwin on their latest cover, having no idea she’d be Justin Bieber‘s fiancee by the time it hit newsstands.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth took a wrecking ball to those split rumors with an IG story.

-Speaking of Hemsworths and social media, Chris Hemsworth secured his place as the second best Chris with this hilarious video for his wife’s birthday. I had serious concerns about her arm socket for a second or two there…

-Romance rumours surrounding Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller feel kind of inevitable at this point, no?

Jenny McCarthy mistook her Google Home for a ghost. She’s swell.

-Crazy Rich Asians’ early word of mouth is GREAT.

-How the hell does a teen-targeting Netflix show that features a girl in a fat suit who only achieves agency once she gets her jaw wired shut and loses weight get made in 2018? How is that even possible? This entire fat-shaming premise is disgusting.

This made me laugh and laugh.

-Director Gus Van Sant was originally tapped to direct Brokeback Mountain, and is spilling tea over which huge stars turned it down. “I felt like we needed a really strong cast, like a famous cast. That wasn’t working out. I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe. They all said no.”

-This investigation into the rumoured American Sailer Moon is weirdly fascinating.

-This is a really fascinating read on celebrities and the opioid crisis. “The overall reaction to Prince and [Tom] Petty’s overdoses — and to the opioid-driven losses before them of such other popular performers as Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heath Ledger — has amounted to nothing much when it comes to awakening Americans to the scope of the national crisis.”

-A defamation lawsuit surrounding The Biggest Loser claims that former contestants are alleging the NBC show supplied them with drugs, including Adderall and the FDA-banned ephedra.

-I really liked this piece on why this year TV dramas have had so many disappointing second seasons (The Handmaid’s Tale, Luke Cage, Westworld, Legion, 13 Reasons Why, Jessica Jones), while comedies are finding their groove in the 2nd season (Atlanta, One Day at a Time, The Good Place, Glow). I think there’s something to be said for dramas getting fixated on plot twists (usually dark and grim ones at that), while comedies do better at focusing on characters you want to follow.

-Everyone and their dog is raving about the book My Year of Rest and Relaxation. I’m saving it for the long weekend!

-I’m not a comic book person, but is this really what the audience wants from Titans? A Dick Grayson who murders people and says “f**k Batman”? Because this looks cheap, terrible and certainly not worth signing up to a new subscription service for.

-When we left the theatre on Friday after seeing Ocean’s 8 I turned to my friends and said “so Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock‘s characters were totally gay for each other, right?” and everyone agreed. And it’s not just us who thought so! Even though I wish the subtext was more actual text, I love that everyone’s writing about their chemistry, like here, here and here.

Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16, but they just announced it will remain.

-I tweeted a link to her twitter thread about it yesterday, but Mo Ryan compiled her thoughts on how TV has treated actresses over 40 this year into an excellent, stats-filled article for THR.

-The cast and creators of American Vandal talking about how they filmed nana’s party is pretty great.

Mike Schur settled some debate about what really happened in The Good Place’s season two finale. I was so wrong.

-Also, my friend pointed out that The Good Place’s official Twitter account is only following 8 people — and that includes Rihanna and Anna Kendrick. What could that mean!??

-CBS is still going all in with their All Access subscription service. Kevin Williamson is re-teaming with The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley for a new series.

-This is so inside baseball, but today’s AT&T-Time Warner mega-merger approval clears the way for Comcast to unveil a rival bid for Fox assets, which means the Fox/Disney merger may not be a sure thing after all.

Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson get moody in The Little Stranger trailer.

-This Zoe Saldana interview is aces. “I don’t want to hear another man tell me, ‘Oh you were my muse’. I don’t want to be your f**king muse anymore. I don’t want you to just post me on your wall and look at me. I want you to listen to me!” She also has not great memories of her first major role, which was in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, saying the set felt “super elitist” and there were “a lot of people who were not so great.”

-The First Wives Club TV adaptation has scored a pilot order at Paramount Network. It’ll be written by Tracy Oliver  who did Girls’ Trip, so I have high hopes.

-On his future plans to make Indiana Jones more inclusive, Steven Spielberg says the main character could be a woman. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” he told the Sun, proving that he doesn’t really understand how last names work.
