Chrissy Teigen people-beautiful-issue

Chrissy Teigen is on the cover of People’s Beautiful issue, and talks about her mom’s experience in America, the uptick in violence toward Asians, and her miscarriage. “We have this new home that we’re building, and this tree being planted inside. The whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil, and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves.”

Britney Spears broke her silence on the documentary about her, saying in an IG caption “I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well.. I still cry sometimes.” (We’re assuming she wrote that.)

Penelope Spheeris (director of Wayne’s World, Suburbia, The Beverly Hillbillies) does not mince words in this Variety interview. “A male film director can get arrested for drunk driving while on cocaine with a hooker in the car and then go ahead and get a deal the next day to direct a $50 million dollar movie. If a woman director gets arrested for drunk driving, there’s no way you work after that, you’re a danger. When you got a male director on the set and he’s a screamer and obnoxious and hard to get along with, we call that a genius. And if you have a woman who’s a screamer and hard to get along with, they call that the wrong time of the month.”

Johnny Depp failed to overturn the ruling in his “wife beater” libel case. The judges refused his application for a new trial on the grounds that a second hearing was unlikely to produce a different outcome: “The claim was based on a story in The Sun alleging that he had beaten his former wife, Amber Heard. After a three-week trial in the High Court last year, in which both Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard gave evidence, Mr. Justice Nicol found that the allegation was true.”

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin debuted their new baby girl yesterday on Instagram, just five months after she gave birth to a baby boy. When a commenter asked if they used a surrogate, he responded “You should shut the f–k up and mind your own business.” Their PR rep added: “We’re still not issuing a statement or confirming anything — what she posted stands.” Everyone’s entitled to privacy when it comes to this stuff, but “the post stands” is my new favourite “no comment.”

-Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse may be dating model Ari Fournier.

George Clooney did a dramatic reading of BTS’ “Dynamite.”

Ray Fisher shared new details of “racially discriminatory conversations” on the Justice League set and specifically called out Geoff Johns: “There will likely be attempts to shift blame completely onto Kevin Tsujihara and Joss Whedon. But make no mistake. Geoff Johns worked intimately with Joss to overhaul the entire Justice League script. And while Geoff was not credited as a co-writer of the film, he was certainly an enforcer of the race-based discrimination that occurred during his conversations with Toby and Jon.”
