Lena Dunham’s Apology Falls Flat

-Jesus. I’d read about Lena Dunham’s apology to Aurora Perrineau and it was bad enough, but the video is full on cringe. Owning your mistakes in public is great, but this whole thing just feels so performative and gross.

Offset‘s alleged mistress has apologized to Cardi B after hearing about their split. “I have not messed with Offset since he had his baby. I didn’t know how serious his marriage was, you know … I feel ashamed,” she told TMZ.

Jennifer Aniston and George Clooney‘s friendship will never not fascinate me.

-Meanwhile, Aniston’s new Netflix movie Dumplin’ is not getting great reviews — but we’re all still gonna watch it, right?

-The Golden Globe nominations were announced today, and while there were some great surprises (The Americans, The Bodyguard, Sandra Oh, The Good Place), I’m very bummed that Widows and Atlanta were shut out.

-Also, I don’t understand any of the movie categories. Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born should be in the music/comedy category rather than Best Motion Picture Drama. And why is Green Book a comedy or musical?

-Also, people are not happy that Girl, the trans-hating movie from Belgium, got a nomination.

-Wondering why all the Hallmark holiday movies look so familiar? Most of them are shot in northern Ontario.

Chrissy Metz plays a grieving mother in the Breakthrough trailer.

Emily Blunt Flies High on Vogue

-I kind of wish Emily Blunt’s Vogue cover wasn’t in character, but her doing 73 Questions in the magazine’s office has a very cute Devil Wears Prada vibe (complete with a great surprise cameo).

James Corden recruited Noah Centineo in an “All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” parody called “To All the Guests I’ve Loved Before.” I was legit shipping them by the end of this. That’s the power of Centineo!

-Also on Corden’s show, Busy Philipps called out Centineo for ghosting her friend, which he awkwardly laughed off. But TMZ reports that at actor’s team did some damage control and got the segment edited down for the YouTube version so that it wouldn’t damage his “good boy-next-door image.”

-First she was trolling for interviews, now it’s endorsement deals. Lindsay Lohan needs a team.

Ashton Kutcher says Mila Kunis scheduled his bday party at the bar in Thousand Oaks that was the scene of a mass shooting. “Only reason we are alive is the shooter chose a different night.”

-Did The Queen and Meghan Markle have a tense exchange over her wedding tiara?

Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he and Dame Judi Dench once misbehaved at Buckingham Palace.

John Mayer wants to assure everyone that he’s not a dick anymore. “I can tell you for sure that I haven’t been a dick in many years. That’s a really outdated take.” Well, I’m convinced!

-At least 8 shots were fired in an apparent drive-by on set of a music video in Beverly Hills featuring Tekashi 6ix9ine, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj50 Cent shared photos of the damage.

Ezra Miller dressed up like a fancy dalek at the Fantastic Beast premiere.

-Meanwhile, the reviews for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are pretty bleak, hovering around 58% rotten.

-The Affair is doing a 20-year jump into the future, with Anna Paquin joining the cast as Joanie. I guess that’s one way to get around the fact that most of your regulars have jumped ship.

-The first footage from Luther’s new season is here. It’s only supposed to be a couple of episodes but Ruth Wilson is rumoured to be returning and I cannot wait!!

Tiffany Haddish Talks Pay Parity

-For the 2018 Power of Women issue, Variety profiled five women—Emma Gonzalez, Lena Waithe, Tiffany Haddish, Natalie Portman, and Regina King—about how they’re using their power for good.

-This entire Tiffany Haddish interview is excellent but I really like her take on why women should speak to each other more openly about salaries and perks. “I think the reason why, a lot times, we don’t get paid the same as men do is because we don’t talk about it. I think we do need to talk about it because I sure get in there and I’m like, ‘Hey, Kate Hudson. How much do they pay you for that? What kind of perks do you get for that?’ I didn’t know they could fill your room up with whatever kind of food you want. That’s why I done gained so much weight, because she told me about all the food you can get. I’m like, you can bring me some tacos and I want an In-N-Out burger.”

-This weekend, Taylor Swift broke her usual stance about not mentioning politics and endorsed two Democratic candidates in Tennessee — and it looks like it may have made a huge impact. Following her Instagram post, Vote.org experienced their second biggest traffic spike, and in the first 48 hours since her post, the site had 240,ooo new voter registrants. Tennessee has seen 5,183 registrations this month so far, half of which came after her post. To put that into perspective, Tennessee saw only 2,811 registrations in the entire month of September.

-Congrats to Suits star Patrick Adams and Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario, who welcomed a baby girl.

Dakota Johnson is fighting a lot of rumours this week. She and Chris Martin hosted a party that happened to have some pink and blue balloons, and everyone assumed (incorrectly) that it was a gender reveal party. She’s also fighting rumours that she’s in a secret affair with Jamie Dornan. (Anyone with eyeballs just has to watch an interview with those two to dispel that one…)

-Stranger Things David Harbour will officiate a wedding in full Hellboy costume for 666k re-tweets. (I kinda like this game where he does ridiculous things for retweets, though I’m getting a little nervous about how far he’s going to take it.)

-A passage that leaked from Busy Philipps’ forthcoming memoir details an alleged assault by James Franco on the set of Freaks and Geeks. The script called for her character to gently nudge him in the chest. Philipps writes that the scripted gesture caused Franco to get so upset, he allegedly “grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’ And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.” Her costar Linda Cardellini suggested that Philipps report what happened to her manager.

-The fact that Brie Larson is still in Jacob Trembley’s life makes me happy.

-Also making me happy: how much fun Jason Momoa and Mark Ruffalo appear to be having together.

-Ha ha ha. James Gunn may move to DC to write and direct the next Suicide Squad movie.

-Next year’s MET Gala will be co-chaired by Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Harry Styles.

-I liked this piece questioning whether Lady Gaga‘s character “sells out” in A Star Is Born. I dug the movie, but it was very weird how it leaned so heavily into a 2004-ish debate about how rock auteurs are so much more authentic than pop stars. I’m kind of surprised Gaga didn’t push back on that.

-Reflecting on her 20s, Gwyneth Paltrow recalls being so naïve and arrogant, her own father once warned her, “You’re acting like a dick.”

Rupert Everett might actually be my spirit animal. In a red carpet interview he said: “I’d like to be dead quite soon. I can’t really deal with the modern world, to be quite honest. I’m very anti-virtual. I do [have an email address] unfortunately. I’m always thinking of stopping it.”

-Apparently there’s always been a lot of sexy subtext in the Venom comics, but the fact that critics are calling the film a “rom-com” and the internet is now shipping Tom Hardy‘s character with the parasite who lives within him actually makes me want to see this thing!

Riz Ahmed and Tom Hardy explained UK slang for us.

Helena Bonham Carter talked about working with Harvey Weinstein: “He knew how to get you Oscar nominations. Both my [Oscar] nominations are due to him… [But] I found the way he treated certain people chilling—without any kind of respect. There were many times I disagreed with the way he behaved, and I don’t mean sexually.”

-The 11th season of Doctor Who, which stars Jodie Whittaker as the first woman to play the title role and got rave reviews, grew from last season’s premiere in ratings, while The Walking Dead suffered a new premiere ratings low. It’s like the universe is righting itself…

-Here’s our first look at Ruby Rose’s Batwoman look in the Arrowverse. It’s a great costume, which is atypical for the CW. But it’s a terrible wig, which is very typical for the CW.

-EgyptAir is shifting blame for that terrible Drew Barrymore interview to an ad agency. Sure.

Kanye West is set to meet with Trump and Jared Kushner at the White House on Thursday to discuss prison reform and reducing the violence in Chicago. Oh, problems solved then!

-Aw man, I clearly have to renew my Amazon Prime membership, because the trailer for Good Omens starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant looks great.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Renée Zellweger and Jacqueline Bisset star in the Here and Now trailer.
