Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge Covers Vogue

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Vogue
Ethan James Green, Vogue,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a delight in the new issue of Vogue. In the interview, she talks about cutting abortion law comments from her SNL monologue (“Because if you rant and rave, if you try and make a noise, you’ll be labelled noisy. You have to be careful of that. You have to find ways to protest”), her drink of choice (“The gimlet came into my life about a year and a half ago. I have really always wanted a cocktail that you order with total confidence; you know, that thing that you order and everyone’s like, Holy shit, she knows what she’s doing with her entire life”), and why you stop sharing as much with your friends as you get older (“I think the first half of your life, you’re trying to find out who you are, and you’re kind of knocking yourself against things, and testing things the whole time, to help kind of sculpt yourself. Then later, when you’ve got as close to sculpted as possible, you’re like, Don’t touch anything, in case it changes me”).

-Speaking of good magazine covers, Katie Holmes covers two this month (the December 2019 issues of Elle UK and SHAPE) and she refused to acknowledge the Tom Cruise years — even in style retrospectives.

-This is sad but not surprising: a new Britney Spears documentary features an interview with the salon owner who witnessed her infamous head shaving incident.

-This interview with TI about how he obsessively monitors the state of his 18-year-old daughter’s hymen is horrific — and really, really medically stupid. (Dr. Jennifer Gunter has a great thread about all the ways TI is wrong.) This doctor should be have his license revoked.

Jenny Slate‘s proposal story is very cute.

Whitney Houston‘s best friend Robyn Crawford wrote a new memoir, in which she talks about how they knew they had to suppress their relationship. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult…She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt.”

Jennifer Aniston revealed why she joined social media, saying “People are already in my panty drawers all the time. And I want them out of my panty drawers. But now I can decide which pair to show them.” And here I thought it was because she was contractually obligated to promote her new Apple show.

Drake is reportedly getting close to Kylie Jenner, according to People. (E!News‘ sources say it’s not serious which, yeah, we could have figured that one out on our own.)

-In the new THR cover story, Aaron Paul explains why he agreed to a Breaking Bad movie despite his fears of messing with the series’ perfect legacy: “I’m like everybody else on the planet — I think Vince [Gilligan] and the rest of the writers really nailed the landing with the ending of Breaking Bad, and why mess with that? But it’s Vince we’re talking about. I would follow Vince into a fire. That’s how much I trust the man. I would do anything that he asked me to.”

-I’m glad that Lizzo recognized that putting a delivery person from Postmates on blast on Twitter to her nearly 1M followers was a dumb and dangerous thing to do.

-This costume designer interview about an unnamed “famous actor” is so juicy. “The actress comes into the fitting room, we try this suit on, and she looks at it and decides that she hates the suit because the pinstripe on the fabric is too wide. The pinstripe is making her look fat.”

In Netflix’s upcoming film The Laundromat, which debuted at TIFF last night, director Steven Soderbergh has Streep playing a second character in disguise near the end of the film: a Panamanian office drone “wearing prosthetics and putting on a thick pan-Latin accent.” That sounds…problematic.
