Drake Opens Up in The Hollywood Reporter

Drake The Hollywood Reporter

-Wow, there’s a lot to unpack in this Drake cover story. He talks about his ambitious push into Hollywood with Apple and Netflix, says he receives a script a week but still hasn’t found anything he wants to act in, gushes about Neflix’s Ozark, pines for first editions of Harry Potter books, and hilariously reveals that he has been collecting Birkin bags for years, a gift for “the woman I end up with.”

Taylor Swift has a new album dropping on Friday and the lead up to it as been unusually shaky, especially for her. It’s interesting to note that social media-wise, she seems to have designated Tumblr as her safe space.

-Also, this article poses an interesting question: can a pop star afford to stay apolitical in our current climate?

-This is great. I kept clicking on the tweet thread thinking “who’s next?!”

-This profile on Sam Rockwell is wonderful — I love that he’s getting Oscar buzz for Three Billboards. His story about how Brad Pitt convinced him to take a supporting role in 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James is pretty cute too.

-Teen girls definitively proved that Jack could have gotten on that door with Rose. Barry was right!

-Holy moly, I hope Lainey’s prediction that Mark Wahlberg will be People’s Sexiest Man Alive doesn’t come true. I’m still banking on Sterling K Brown.

-Next year’s MET Gala theme is “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” I’m already scared. At least next year’s co-chairs include Amal Clooney and Rihanna.

-This is my favourite headline of the day: “Family opens front door and their jaws drop: It’s Matthew McConaughey, and he’s holding a frozen turkey!”

-The woman who accused Brett Ratner of rape in a now-deleted post appeared on Good Morning America.

-Aw nuts. The latest star to be accused of assault is Robert Knepper. A costume designer tells a pretty horrific story.

-Amazon is reportedly investigating a complaint against Jeffrey Tambor, though Transparent creator Jill Soloway seems to be in his corner.

-The Walking Dead’s Jon Bernthal says he was a fan of Kevin Spacey until they worked together on Baby Driver. “I thought he was a bit of a bully. I didn’t really care for the way he was behaving toward some of the other people on set.”

-Former Boston TV news anchor Heather Unruh spoke at a press conference Wednesday, during which she said Spacey sexually assaulted her son in Massachusetts when he was 18 years old. “There was no consent…when [Spacey] was out of sight, a concerned woman quickly came to my son’s side and asked if he was ok…She told him to run.”

Ed Westwick and his girlfriend, Jessica Serfaty, were reportedly ‘looking at engagement rings‘ before his sexual assault scandal broke. I’m guessing they have other things on their mind now.

-Meanwhile, attention has turned to talent agents and publicists about their inability (or unwillingness) to protect their clients.  Actress Rae Dawn Chong reveals how her career dried up after a terrible meeting with Steven Seagal. “Kevin Huvane was my agent. Did I call him after and tell him what happened and say how violated and f**ked up it was? Yes. And did CAA take the position of, ‘We’ll protect you’? No. It became, ‘Rae Dawn Chong’s difficult.’ And it did impact my career. Obviously, I left CAA promptly, because it was like a pimp situation.”

Chadwick Boseman is the superhero lead we deserve.

-I feel like not enough people are talking about Blade Runner’s huge losses.

-Here’s our first look at Steven Spielberg‘s Oscar-baiting drama The Post. Besides Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, the all-star cast also includes a TV’s who’s who: Carrie Coon, Alison Brie, David Cross, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Matthew Rhys, Jesse Plemons, and Bradley Whitford.

Johnny Depp apologized for joking about assassinating Trump. So I’m guessing he will now lose jobs because of this like Kathy Griffin did. What’s that? None of that is happening? Huh.

-In news that will shock no one, Will Ferrell revealed that Mariah Carey isn’t the easiest person to work with. This is a hilariously diplomatic conversation. “She was on our set and, yeah…things happened. And didn’t happen.”

Bachelor in Paradise Halted Amid Sexual Misconduct Probe


-Man, the story about the production shutdown of Bachelor in Paradise got real serious, real fast. The cast of left Mexico after ABC and Warner Bros. halted filming and released a statement referring only to “allegations of misconduct.” Then People reported that two contestants had a sexual encounter, and there was a question of whether the female was sober enough to consent. A producer reportedly didn’t show up to work the next day and filed an official complaint about how the cameras kept rolling. The female contestant is now reportedly saying she was black out drunk and production should have stepped in. So don’t expect that show to come back ever.

Meghan Markle participated in a live reading of the Suits pilot at the ATX fest over the weekend, where she expertly deflected questions about her relationship with Prince Harry.

-This article about how Carly Rae Jepson is just for teens is a whole lotta bullshit. “Adult women love Carly Rae Jepsen in part because of the teenageriness of her product.” Shut up. “Cut to the Feeling” is the perfect summer jam and anyone who says differently can fight me.

Sir Patrick Stewart did the ‘Shoey’ after the Canadian Grand Prix, which proves that it’s still disgusting, no matter who does it.

-I was having trouble figuring out why there are like 5 episodes of The Americans stacked up on my DVR and I had no desire to watch them, even though that’s been by favourite show for the past few years. This article on the latest season sums up its problems nicely.

-On The Graham Norton Show, Rachel Weisz told a terrifying tale of a horse falling on her while filming her latest movie.

Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama appear to still be friendly a year after their split.

-New Girl’s Jake Johnson told a story about filming with Tom Cruise and being afraid to use his gym at the same time, until Tom told him: “Let me make something crystal clear: I don’t care what anybody on the crew says to you, they don’t know what I’m saying to you. And I’m saying to you that you are always welcome. I don’t care what I’m doing in there. You’re not other. You’re my castmate. Come in.” Say what you will about that guy, but “you’re not other” is a damn good line.

-Meanwhile, The Mummy was a huge flop in North America, but it nabbed $141.8M around the world and opened No. 1 in 46 markets, making it Tom Cruise’s best international opening.

-Also, Wonder Woman fell a mere 45 percent in its second weekend to $57.2M. That’s one of the lowest drops ever for a superhero tentpole, proving this movie is going to have legs.
