-The September cover reveals are landing! I’m so curious to see how magazines will handle remote photo shoots, but we’re starting strong with Kerry Washington looking fab in Town & Country.
–Ta-Nehisi Coates will guest-edit Vanity Fair’s Sept issue.
–Cameron Diaz joined Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop livestream and talked about turning her back on the movie business, which she says gave her “a peace in my soul because I finally was taking care of myself…It’s so intense to work at that level and be that public and put yourself out there. There’s a lot of energy coming at you at all times when you’re really visible as an actor.”
-This is petty af: Megan Fox posted a photo of Machine Gun Kelly with the caption: “Achingly Beautiful Boy… My heart is yours.” A couple hours later, Brian Austin Green used the same caption and dedicated it to their sons.
–Meghan Markle finally got a win: she’s prevented Associated Newspapers (the owner of the Daily Mail) from publishing the names of five of her friends who spoke about her to People.
-It’s wild to me how many celebrities are sticking up for Ellen Degeneres, including Katy Perry, Kevin Hart, Diane Keaton, Ashton Kutcher, and Jay Leno. Is it really so hard to understand that how someone treats a famous guest may be completely different from how they treat their employees?
-Meanwhile, former Ellen Show DJ Tony Okungbowa tweeted: “I did experience and feel the toxicity of the environment and I stand with my former colleagues in their quest to create a healthier and more inclusive workplace.”
-I think it’s hilarious that there’s chatter about replacing Ellen with James Corden — as if the gossip surrounding him isn’t just as bad. Remember when his Reddit AMA got derailed by all the people asking if the stories of him being a jerk IRL are true?
–Matt Damon and wife Luciana were seen hanging on the beach with Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in Malibu the other day.
-This is a great profile on Jurnee Smollett, who should have broken out bigger after Birds of Prey. She talks about the controversy surrounding her casting: “It brought a rage out inside of me, which was great for Canary.”
-The FBI raided Jake Paul’s California home and seized multiple firearms found on the property.
-Ha! Quibi is testing a free, ad-supported model.
-All of the Harry Potter movies will stream on NBCU’s Peacock, even though the franchise is produced by Warner Bros., which is owned by WarnerMedia — which has its own streaming service in HBO Max.
–Seth Rogen‘s American Pickle, which debuts tomorrow on HBO Max/Crave, is getting good reviews.
-HBO Max just dropped the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi series Raised by Wolves.
-The Mulan news is huge. I didn’t see a big budget movie like this (reportedly $200-300 million) end up going straight to VOD, but it’ll be available on September 4 via Disney+ for $29.99 (on top of the streaming service’s $6.99 monthly subscription fee).
–Marty Jannetty, a former WWE/F wrestler, appears to have confessed to murder via a Facebook post.
-This almost never happens in Hollywood, but Dave and Odette Annable are back together after a 10-month split.
-The trailer for Selena Gomez’s quarantine-shot cooking show looks delightful!
