Jennifer Garner Is The Most Beautiful

Jennifer-Garner-People-Most-Beautiful-2019

Jennifer Garner made the cover of People’s Most Beautiful issue. She joked about the honour on Ellen: “People is now a magazine for AARP. I have never been more nervous than I am today. I guess I just thought you guys would boo. Like, you guys are expecting Kaia Gerber, and it’s me. And I feel like bolting. I feel like I should go, you know what I mean? Because it’s so ridiculous. It’s silly, but it’s nice.”

-What’s with successful musicians coming after music critics this week? First it was Lizzo, and now Ariana Grande. (Also, it’s super cute that they seem to be under the impression music freelancers make money. Like, adorable.)

-This Noah Wyle interview is so worth a read. He talks about his legendary bad reputation and reconnecting with his ER costars.

Taylor Swift kicked off her heels and hung out with Emilia Clarke at the Time100 event last night. Before that, she gave a speech in which she admitted to being a Grey’s Anatomy superfan, saying “I know Sandra Oh is in the room which shakes me to my very core. That’s my whole life there.”

-In a new interview, Amy Poehler talks about the #MeToo movement, saying “I’ve been trying to unpack my own deep institutionalized misogyny.” That’s all well and good, but she still appears to be managed by Dave Becky, Louis CK’s manager who many others have dropped.

Diddy discussed life after Kim Porter’s untimely death, saying “Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well. She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick. One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died.”

Britney Spears took to Instagram to reassure fans that she’s fine and to put an end to the #FreeBritney movement.

-This is not cool. Daniel Portman, who plays Podrick on Game of Thrones, says certain female fans made his life pretty miserable for a while due to their astounding lack of boundaries and groping.

-Meanwhile, excuse me as I get choked up while watching Game of Thrones cast and crew talking about the knighting of Brienne.

-I kind of love that the dude who played Lane on Mad Men is a GoT superfan who has crazy theories about the next episode.

Anne Hathaway says she ended her veganism when she and Matt Damon when to a seafood-heavy Michelin-star restaurant in Iceland. “I had a piece of salmon and my brain felt like a computer rebooting.”

-The Empire cast has signed a letter of support for Jussie Smollett. Meanwhile, his character on the show is getting a big, history-making wedding.

Will Smith attempts to kill his younger self in the new trailer for Gemini Man.

-In her 10th time covering Vanity Fair, Nicole Kidman talks about her marriage to Keith Urban (“It’s extremely simple with what we want from each other and what we want from a relationship. Just peas in a pod in that regard”), her kids with Tom Cruise (Bella is married and lives in London, Conner is in music in Miami), and how Meryl Streep slipped seamlessly into Big Little Lies’ close-knit cast (“There are no men in our equation. I mean, there are, but they’re not on the group chat, let’s put it that way. [Meryl is] and she’s very funny”).

-Early reactions to Avengers: Endgame are super positive, especially the film’s last hour which will apparently get us all up in our feels.  Box office-wise, it’s tracking at $1B worldwide ticket sales in less than a week.

Natalie Portman was a surprise guest at the Endgame premiere, leading to everyone wondering if she makes a cameo.

-The best moment of the premiere’s red carpet was when Brie Larson surprised Tessa Thompson with a kiss.

Gwyneth Paltrow couldn’t help spilling spoilers on the red carpet.

-Meanwhile, Gwyneth was spotted hanging out with ex-hubby Chris Martin‘s girlfriend, Dakota Johnson.

-It finally seems to be dawning on Lori Loughlin that she’s facing some serious jail time.

-Sources in Britney Spears’ camp are telling People that no one is forcing her to stay at her wellness facility.

Maisie Williams’ tweet about her controversial GoT scene is great.

-13 Going on 30 came out 15 years ago today. Let’s celebrate by rewatching the best awkward dance scene everJennifer Garner’s post about the film, in which she celebrates her young costars, is very sweet. I also very much like this article on why it’s a better movie than Big. “‘Chick flicks’— as some like to call romance films that center on a woman—are never ‘refreshing’ or ‘poignant.’ Chick flicks, no matter how original they are, are ‘well-worn,’ ‘formulaic’ and ‘uninspired.’ Big gets to be on the American Film Institute’s list of funniest films of all time, while 13 Going on 30 gets dubbed a guilty pleasure.”

Whitney Davis, an exec who worked at CBS for 13 years before quitting in February, wrote a column in Variety about the network’s “white problem.” And yet on the same day CBS said that they’ve suspended their search for a new CEO ’cause clearly the current exec team is top notch.

-Hurray! The Good Fight has been renewed for season 4. This current season is fire.

-Lizzo talking about drunkenly sliding into Drake’s DMs is giving me life.

Whitney Houston‘s BFF (and maybe more?) Robyn Crawford is releasing a memoir detailing her relationship with the singer.

Always Be My Maybe, Netflix’s upcoming romcom starring Ali Wong and Randall Park, looks adorable!

-Speaking of Netflix joints, Renee Zellweger cooks up an evil scheme in the trailer for Netflix’s new-noir show What/If.

Rihanna Gets Colourful on Harper’s Bazaar Cover

Rihanna Harper’s Bazaar

Rihanna looks amazing in Chanel, Dior and Givenchy Haute Couture in her new Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. I cannot stop looking at these photos.

-Speaking of amazing photo shoots, Keiynan Lonsdale in Vogue took my breath away.

-Time’s 100 most influential people issue is here, which features Taylor Swift (with a tribute written by Shawn Mendes), Sandra Oh (with a tribute written by Shonda Rhimes), Dwayne Johnson (with a tribute written by Gal Gadot), Regina King (with a tribute written by Voila Davis), Brie Larson (with a tribute written by Tessa Thompson), Lady Gaga (with a tribute written by Celine Dion), Emilia Clarke (with a tribute written by Emma Thompson) and more.

Lori Loughlin‘s camp took her sob story to People. Because of course.

Beyonce shocked everyone by dropping a surprise live album to coincide with her new Netflix documentary, ensuring that no one in the entire world did any work today.

-Look, I’m fully aware that this entire article was likely ghost-written by her PR team, but I’m still here for all the Jennifer Garner comeback pieces.

Madonna‘s new single “Medellin” is here. It took a few listens but now I dig it.

Britney Spears‘ mother is not doing much to reassure us that her daughter is fine. She posted about how “the battle is not over” and then liked posts about Britney being put in a mental care facility against her will.  What’s happening??

-Ugh, when asked about Rey’s parents, J.J. Abrams said Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will show us “there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.” This is why I’m concerned with Abrams regaining control. He adores his mystery boxes, but the reason that The Last Jedi was so powerful is because Rian Johnson introduced the notion that anyone could be a Jedi — even if you’re parents are nobody. It opened up the Force (kind of like the Buffy finale opened up slayerhood). Why destroy that, especially in the final chapter of a trilogy that established it?

-Huzzah! Emma Thompson and Paul Rudd will host SNL this season.

Louis Tomlinson broke his silence following his sister’s sudden death to thank fans for their support.

-I really liked actor John Bradley’s take on Sam Tarly’s scenes in the Game of Thrones premiere. Sam is not only one of the purest characters, he’s often also the audience surrogate. So if Sam doesn’t like Dany, that doesn’t bode well for her.

-Meanwhile, the Gay of Thrones recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness continue to be the most entertaining thing about the show.

-I love The Cut editors’ review of Adam Driver’s new Broadway play based on his hotness, which includes lines like “it’s a really immense, thigh-forward experience” and “I was so flustered by his quads that at one point I spilled all of the contents of my purse on the floor.”

-Dead to Me, Netflix’s new show starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, is getting good reviews.

-Oof. The final trailer for X Men: Dark Phoenix does nothing to convince me that this film won’t be a mess.
