Anne Hathaway Reflects on Her Career

anne-hathaway-allure

Anne Hathaway covers Allure, in which she talks about being told to lose weight since she began working (“At 16 years old, it was ‘Congratulations, you have the part. I’m not saying you need to lose weight. I’m just saying don’t gain weight”) and reflects on how roles for women are slowly changing (“It’s more nuanced, and it’s more interesting. It’s allowed for more interesting characters and stories. Now the big question is, are audiences appreciating it? If it’s not supported, it won’t continue. It will go back to the way it was, and people will say, ‘Okay, that didn’t work.'” Also, her video of trying weird things is very cute.

-I can’t tell if Cate Blanchett is being really modest when talking about wanting to retire, or if she’s subtly shading her new movie, Where’d You Go Bernadette. “It’s time for me to stop. Totally. Absolutely. And I’m sure audiences around the world, when they see this film, will say, ‘Oh, yes. It’s definitely time for her to stop.’ I apologize in advance.” And when the interviewer implores Blanchett to continue acting she added “We’ll see what you say when you see this movie.”

-People are really hating on Drake’s Beatles-inspired tattoo. If only they’d hate on his Chris Brown collab half as much.

Hannah Gadsby says Louis C.K. is “being self-indulgent and he’s being a crybaby.” I love her with my whole heart.

-I only watched two episodes of The Hills reboot before I gave up, but Brody Jenner‘s clearly unhappy marriage bummed me out. But it seems he’s already moved on. Just a week or so after splitting from Kaitlynn Carter (who was then photographed kissing Miley Cyrus), he’s now dating model Josie Canseco. (Or at least, that’s what his camp wants us to believe.)

-Deep fake videos of celebrities always freak me out because they’re so disturbing and the potential uses are gross, but this one that’s making the rounds of Bill Hader turning into Tom Cruise and Seth Rogan *while impersonating them* is beyond freaky.

-The beauty influencer who challenged Priyanka Chopra at BeautyCon talks about going viral and shedding light on the India-Pakistan conflict.

Jack Black and Jack White teamed up to record a song as Jack Gray. Cute.

-God, I want a One Tree Hill tell-all.

-Yikes, the Disney-Fox merger continues to be rocky. The latest: Disney is reportedly concerned Taika Waititi‘s WWII satire Jojo Rabbit is not on brand. “The scathing take down of Nazism may prove a little too edgy for Disney brass accustomed to producing movies suitable for parents and kids…Halfway through one recent viewing one executive grew audibly uncomfortable, wondering aloud that the material would alienate Disney fans.” Wait, if Disney is afraid of making fun of Nazis, do they think their core fans are…Nazis?

-The first trailer for Greta Gerwig’s Little Women has arrived and holy hell am I all in!

Tiffany Haddish Weighs in on Game of Thrones

-This week’s Gay of Thrones features Tiffany Haddish and remains more entertaining than the show they’re recapping.

-Meanwhile, next Star Wars movie will be from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the guys behind Game of Thrones. I can’t tell if the timing of this announcement is terrible (because of how much everyone is hating on them this week), or the best they could do (because we may all be hating on them even more after Sunday’s finale).

-It looks like Jennifer Lopez‘s daughter might follow in her mom’s footsteps. Girl’s got pipes!

George Clooney says he once advised Ben Affleck to turn down the Batman role. “I actually did talk to him about it. I said, ‘Don’t do it. ‘It was only from my experience, which is, you know…He did great, though.”

Keanu Reeves is perfect and we must protect him at all costs.

-Disney’s disturbing consolidation continues. They now have full control of Hulu after buying out Comcast’s stake.

-The glowing reviews for Fleabag’s season two (which drops on Amazon Friday) don’t do it justice. I binged the whole season in a weekend, and it’s perfection.

-Here’s the trailer for the Party of Five reboot. I have concerns.

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty sold on the new 90210 show based on the new trailer.

-The cast for Cate Blanchett‘s upcoming FX show is stacked! (As if Cate weren’t enough.)

-I’ve dropped the CW superhero shows because there’s too many better shows to watch and too little time, but I caught last night’s Arrow season finale (which was basically the series finale cause it seems like next season’s final 10 eps will be a weird crossover setup), and holy wow did it get me right in the feels. What a perfect, beautiful scene to close out the show — both in the present day and 20 years in the future. Basically, this reaction video was me.

-Someone is adapting Eleanor & Park?!? I am both extremely excited and totally terrified that they’ll screw it up. It’s being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, so there’s hope.

Mel Gibson’s publicist is both ballsy and delusional — which I guess is a requirement to be Mel Gibson’s publicist.

-The latest trailer for The Dead Don’t Die leans into Adam Driver‘s deadpan delivery.

Angelina Jolie is magnificent in the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil trailer.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Reflect On Their Big Year

emily-blunt-john-krasinksi

-I’m not quite sure why the Hollywood Reporter opted to do a joint interview with Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. She’s promoting Mary Poppins and he’s promoting — the second season of his Amazon show that doesn’t yet have a release date? Maybe? Also, out of all the photos, the cover is my least favourite. (How could they not choose the coat one!?!) Still, they’re pretty damn adorable together. She calls him Kras!

-The best part about Cardi B’s Carpool Karaoke segment is that there were no surprise interruptions by Offset (followed by her flirting with senior citizens).

-Aww man, Penny Marshall passed away at 75. Celebs are tweeting their memories and condolences. Time for a rewatch of A League of Their Own!

-Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels is reportedly sending Pete Davidson to get help following his suicide scare over the weekend.

Oprah has jumped on the Black Panther Oscar campaign. I approve!

Sandra Bullock has no interest in Oscar hosting. Can’t say I blame her.

-Meanwhile, Sandra’s outfits on her Bird Box press tour have been lit.

-According to Nielsen, the Roseanne reboot was the most-watched regularly scheduled TV program in 2018, with an average 19.9 million viewers over its run, followed by Sunday Night Football, Big Bang Theory, NCIS and This Is Us. Society is doomed.

Angelina Jolie penned an op-ed in The Economist, urging global leaders to act on the refugee crisis.

-This is a really interesting (and shade-filled!) look at why Divergent — which was supposed to be the next Hunger Games — flamed out so spectacularly.

-Man, everyone on my Twitter feed is obsessed with this Turkish show. OB.SESS.ED.

Lin Manuel-Miranda and Jimmy Fallon performed holiday parodies of the year’s hits and it was very cute.

-There’s no Doctor Who holiday special this year, so they made up for it with this animated short instead.

-This trailer for Scott Foley and Lauren Cohan‘s new ABC series is delightful!

-Netflix ordered more episodes of Sabrina, so I guess that’s a thing now.

Cate Blanchett stars in the Where’d You Go, Bernadette? trailer. I LOVED that book and this cast is very promising.
