Jennifer Lawrence Talks Body Image and Pay Gap in Harper’s Bazaar


-I really like Jennifer Lawrence‘s new interview with Harper’s Bazaar, in which she admits she works hard for her “average” body. “Everybody says, ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’ I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person.” She also smartly responds to the controversy over her pay gap comments, saying, “I try not to be too sensitive to the ‘poor rich girl’ jokes. I was saying my reality is absolutely fabulous, but it is not the reality of a lot of women in America.”

-Congrats to Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman for welcoming a baby boy — and for doing it a month ago without anyone finding out. And for giving him a normal name. Really, they’re just winning at life right now.

Melissa McCarthy’s deal to appear on Gilmore Girls just happened to go through the day before her critically panned movie opened. What are the odds?

Kate Hudson talks about deliberately hiding from her children in her new InStyle cover story. Sounds like my kind of parenting.

Jennifer Aniston says she started eating pasta again after meeting Justin Theroux. The rest of her diet sounds super sad, though.

-I’m actually surprised it took this long for Cameron Diaz to be featured in GOOP. She’s talking about the science of humans cells so at least it’s unintentionally hilarious.

-They’re once again trying to do a US remake of Misfits. Why, Hollywood? Whyyyyy???

-I’m really glad Edge of Tomorrow is getting a sequel. That is maybe the most underrated Tom Cruise movie in decades.

-This is the most Nic Cage thing that Nic Cage has ever done.

-If you just got let go from your steady TV gig and are looking for a new job, maybe don’t tweet support for an article that says the show will suck without you. Network execs see that stuff, fool.

-An oral history of Bridget Jones’s Diary from Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth and more? Well, if you insist.

Paul Walker‘s 16-year-old daughter Meadow has received a $10 million settlement from the driver in the fatal crash.

-I really liked this week’s AV Club Q&A about body shaming in TV and movies.

-Brace yourselves for some shocking news: Leonardo DiCaprio is dating another model.

-How did I not know that there’s a movie version coming of The Office UK?


EW Offers First Look at the Gilmore Girls Revival


-EW just unveiled their Gilmore Girls return cover and I’m in love. Meanwhile, the showrunner says of Melissa McCarthy: “I can get her in and out in two hours.”  Methinks it’s too little, too late, but we’ll see.

-I can barely pick out the One Direction guys from a lineup but that didn’t stop me from falling down a crazy fake baby conspiracy rabbit hole today. I’m not sure what’s crazier — the theories or the actual public story. Who announces to People he’s expecting a kid with a fling when she’s only 11 weeks along? Why are they passing off baby pics from random bloggers as their own? What’s with all the queerbaiting? I don’t understand any of this, but I do know this: if I’m ever falsely accused of a crime, I want the 1D fandom in charge of investigating the case. They’ve got receipts!

-This is the second craziest read of the day: a National Enquirer editor writes about his insane 2-year war with Charlie Sheen. It gets weirder and weirder the more you read…

Russell Crowe tries to prove he’s funny enough to host SNL in these new promos. It doesn’t work.

-You can watch the first four minutes of the Orphan Black season premiere here.

-This is adorable: Tom Cruise has given Kristen Dunst a coconut cake every Christmas since they shot Interview with a Vampire.

-Ruh roh! Jennifer Lopez‘s new feminist song is also produced by Dr. Luke.

-Wait wait wait — Ryan Reynolds is in talks to star in the adaptation of The Rosie Project?! Seeing as the main character is a nerdy, OCD-plagued professor, this movie might already be in trouble.

Aisha Tyler’s Reddit AMA was wonderful.

David Duchovny and Stephen Colbert had fun trying to make the CBS person in charge of bleeping out swears work overtime.

-I feel such weird pride for the Amell boys, as if somehow had a hand in their success. I once waved to one of them while crossing the street. Does that count?

Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell were on GMA today to promote Mr Right, and it was amazing. (The best part was before the interview, before they cut to commercial while surrounded by people on trampolines dancing to a DJ and Kendrick was like “what is happening?!” and Rockwell was just all “who cares — let’s dance!”)

Cameron Diaz gushed about the “real love” she’s found with her husband. Which is sweet — until you remember he’s one of the Good Charlotte guys and everything gets all confusing again.

-The trailer for the next Star Wars sequel Rogue One is so filled with kickass women. Here’s a deep dive into all the easter eggs. I love this trailer so much that I had to stop myself from trying to burrow my head into my laptop’s screen when I first watched it…

Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz’s Magazine Covers


-BFFs Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz are both covering magazines this month, and Drew on Marie Claire totally wins. I mean, I’m confused why her reflection doesn’t seem to have the same shade of lipstick as her face in the interior shot, but the cover is lovely. Cameron on Women’s Health, however, is freaking me the eff out.

-Also, Drew revealed that her nickname for Cameron is “Poo Poo.” Mmm-kay.

-I love Jennifer Garner‘s explanation of how torturous it is to wear an Oscar dress. Jimmy Fallon‘s increasing discomfort when she starts talking about what happens when you need to pee and you have to beg your friend to dig your spanx out of your vagina is priceless.

Lin-Manuel Miranda taught Emma Watson how to beat-box while he freestyled about feminism, and it was all kinds of adorabs.

Emma and Lin-Manuel also sorted the founders from Hamilton into Hogwarts houses.

-Congrats to Stephen Amell on being named CinemaCon’s Male Star of Tomorrow. I have no idea what that is but I support anyone who wants to shower his beautiful mug with awards.

Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth woman are reportedly engaged. Pray for her.

-Even Michelle Pfeiffer is getting in on the lifestlye brand action. I usually scoff at these ventures, but if she’s selling whatever it is that keeps her face looking like that, I’ll take 20 cases!

-My friend wrote about the 22 times Samantha Bee was Canada’s greatest gift to America. Seconded!

Joanna Newsom says when she first met husband Andy Samberg, she called him a c*nt. It was love at first sight.

-Hmmm…isn’t this interesting? Daredevil season 2 isn’t exactly wowing critics who got early screeners.

Rihanna insists those Beyonce rivalry rumors are bunk. That’s cute.

-This is pretty inside baseball for the TV industry, but it’s huge: ABC just scored stacking rights to any new Warner Bros. series launched on ABC over next 2 seasons. That means ABC can stream all episodes of a season on their site, app or Hulu, not just the last five episodes. On the downside, it makes those shows less desirable to Netflix.

-Another great read for TV lovers: 6 top casting directors discuss how they choose actors — and the ones that got away. (I love that Allison Brie and Leighton Meester have their pick of pilots.)

-Funny or Die’s The People vs Kanye West is a good time.

Melissa McCarthy continues to give us the sads about her lack of participation in the Gilmore Girls reboot. “I didn’t actually get asked to do it. But I think they thought I was busy, and then by the time it did come up, then I actually was.”

-I’m giving a hard pass to the new Tarzan trailer. Gawd, that “like a damsel?” line.

-I tend to like the X-Men movies, but the latest trailer for  X-Men: Apocalypse is a bit meh.
