Charlize Theron Gets Tough in W

Charlize Theron W

Charlize Theron previews her ass-kicking role in Atomic Blonde in the new issue of W. She talks about the only bar fight she’s ever been in, accidentally punching Teri Hatcher in the face, and getting injured on set.

-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges. Fargo’s Allison Tolman made a good point on Twitter: what would have the response been if an actress made those types of comments? Katherine Heigl was crucified for much less.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins have finally left the hospital.

Brad Pitt is probably not dating Sienna Miller or Elle McPherson. What other attractive, age appropriate blonde can we throw at him?

Courteney Cox says she’s given up on fillers. Hallelujah!

Bruno Mars was looking real sleepy at the BET Awards last night.

-Meanwhile, Chris Brown and Migos reportedly had an altercation after the BET Awards.

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Fallon playing “Whisper Challenge” led to Jimmy saying “cock” on TV so that’s fun.

-China’s box office rescued Transformers from disaster, continuing a trend of bailouts. The robots-in-disguise sequel collected $69 million in the U.S., a franchise low, but hit $123 million in China, a franchise high there.

-War for the Planet of the Apes is getting really good reviews. Like really, really good. Huh.

-Now that Netflix has started cancelling shows, they just can’t stop. Girlboss is the latest casualty.

-One of Johnny Depp‘s former manager backs up Amber Heard’s accusations against the actor. Well, if a man says it happens I guess everyone can believe her now, right?

-Here are more details about what really went down in the Hans Solo movie. An interesting tidbit: Lucasfilm decided to bring in an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich when they were not entirely satisfied with the performance (acting coaches are not unusual — bringing one in that late into production is.)

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.

-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.

-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.

-The writers for the new season of X Files have been revealed: Darin Morgan is back, but sadly no Vince Gilligan and Frank Spotnitz — and no women! Come on.

Idris Elba slays in new preview for Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower.

-The Bellas take their show on the road in first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3.

Celebrities Weigh In On Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj’s Twitter War


-Is this the first time Taylor Swift has stepped in it? ‘Cause last night, she really, really did. Like, throw out those shoes, girlfriend; they’re ruined. Nicki Minaj was tweeting about her VMA snubs and suggesting that it was racially motivated, and Taylor weirdly inserted herself into the conversation and somehow made it all about feminism (which it wasn’t). Things got real weird, real fast. And within a few hours, the underdog narrative that Swift’s machine has spent so long building suddenly started showing cracks.

-Celebs were quick to jump in on the Swift vs Minaj convo, from Bruno Marshilarious response to Aaron Paul trying to be a peacemaker to professional mansplainer Piers Morgan hijacking the conversation.

-The cheating allegations are flying on both sides of the Blake Shelton/Miranda Lambert split. Her camp is now saying that he’s the one who strayed, but a new blind item suggests that’s not the whole truth. (I’m guessing Kasey Musgraves is the up and comer referenced.) Access Hollywood is also claiming that she had a “long-term affair.” Whatever happened, they both sound pretty bummed about it.

Lindsay Lohan went swimming in lingerie, as one does.

Jake Gyllenhaal may be a grump in all his recent print interviews, but he remains the ideal talk show guest. Listen to this cutie pie talk about his beard  or get slapped in the face and try not to hug the screen with your uterus.

-The Lone Gunman are set to appear in The X-Files reboot? I’m a little hazy on the final seasons and what happened in their short-lived spinoff but didn’t they, like, die?

-I don’t even remember the Anne Hathaway joke in Trainwreck, but at least she has a sense of humour about it.

-This is an interesting look at why the year’s biggest Sundance hits (Dope and Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) both fizzled at the box office. Festival buzz is no longer enough.

-I feel like James Corden is conducting his late night show exactly how most of us would if given the chance: looking at who is going to be on that night and then wondering “Which of my secret bucket list scenarios involves them?” How else to explain him dressing up as MC Skat Kat and recreating the “Opposites Attract” video with Paula Abdul? James Corden is all of us.

-Want to work for Gwyneth Paltrow‘s GOOP? How comfortable are you having an office in a barn?

-As much as The Good Wife fell off the rails last season, this article about how CBS just ordered a summer 2016 series from that show’s creators about aliens who have eaten politicians’ brains made me think, “I am SO in.”

-I never thought there’d come the day when there was too much naked Neville Longbottom on my timeline, but here we are.

Bill Simmons just landed a mega deal with HBO, and it sounds like part of it involves doing a TV version of The BS Report. It’s like the podcast, but even better ’cause it’ll be easier to fast-forward through all the sports talk!

-The Freeheld trailer, featuring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as a couple fighting for equal rights, looks fantastic.

-Speaking of trailers, the Spectre trailer introduces Christoph Waltz as the latest Bond villain.
