Anne Hathaway Says Instagram Helps Her “Calm Down”

Anne Hathaway covers the latest issue of Town & Country, in which she reveals that she may be the first person in the world to be calmed down by social media.

-The Surviving R Kelly showrunner said she was waiting for a reckoning and it might finally be here. TMZ reported that the Fulton County DA’s office has opened a criminal investigation into R. Kelly “as a direct result” of what was in the Lifetime docu-series. Plus, there’s a warrant out for his manager’s arrest for “threats” to the singer’s accusers dating back to July 2018.

Mahershala Ali, who doesn’t drink, says Bill Murray poured tequila on his head at the Golden Globes. He’s much more pleasant about it than I would be.

Meghan Markle isn’t difficult; she just has a North American work ethic.

-I finally saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and it was as good as everyone said. Brian Tyree Henry was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and talked about how his family missed his big scene because they went to get chicken tenders.

Gordon Ramsay is facing backlash after an old interview with Sofia Vergara resurfaced. While the Modern Family star is being interviewed by host Jay Leno, Ramsay consistently interrupts, makes jokes about Vergara, and at one point touches her leg.

-This timeline of Ruth Wilson’s abrupt exit from The Affair is fascinating, but I still don’t get what happened.

-Can you imagine going to Target and seeing Beyonce there? I’d die.

-The guy who plays Chidi on The Good Place is so surprisingly hot.

Winona Ryder calls Keanu Reeves “husband” when she talks to him and I’m here for it.

Jimmy Kimmel is employing federal workers during the shutdown, starting with putting a prison worker on a trampoline.

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning and critics say the NBC version “is just as goofy, warm, fast-moving” as it was on Fox.

-Also returning this week is You’re The Worst, which is reportedly much improved from last season.

Ethan Hawke moonwalked his way onto The Late Show.

Ryan Gosling wants consumers to make informed choices about the materials from Congo used to build things like smartphones.

-Speaking of Gosling, THR did a story on club promoters in the early 2000s, and this photo of him with Britney and Justin is amazing.

Pamela Adlon talked making the new season of Better Things without Louis C.K.  “All of a sudden, he’s gone, my show is dangling from a precipice. It was so huge. And it was so devastating…I’ve never been in a writers’ room, let alone run a writers’ room. Sitting down, meeting writers, reading their stuff—how do you do this? Is this person going to get along with this person? It’s like making a table at a f*cking Bar Mitzvah.”

-The GoT prequel has rounded out its main cast. Hey, it’s the dude from Reign!

-Paradise Hotel is returning to Fox. That show’s first season remains one of the wildest, most entertaining things to ever air.

-A much younger Agent Coulson is back in the new Captain Marvel trailer.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.
