Zoe Saldana Doesn’t Want To Be Your Muse


-This Zoe Saldana interview is aces. “I don’t want to hear another man tell me, ‘Oh you were my muse’. I don’t want to be your f**king muse anymore. I don’t want you to just post me on your wall and look at me. I want you to listen to me!” She also has not great memories of her first major role, which was in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, saying the set felt “super elitist” and there were “a lot of people who were not so great.”

Nicole Kidman shared the first photo of Meryl Streep on Big Little Lies Season 2. *grabby hands*

Channing Tatum is denying rumours that his drinking and womanizing led to their split. “The media is fabricating stories and none of these accusations are remotely true,” his rep says.

Ruth Negga and Dominic Cooper have split after seven years of dating (which translates to 54 years in Hollywood time). The set of Preacher just got a whole lot more awkward.

Brad Pitt is rumoured to be spending time with an MIT professor. Can’t say I saw that one coming…

-The First Wives Club TV adaptation has scored a pilot order at Paramount Network. It’ll be written by Tracy Oliver  who did Girls’ Trip, so I have high hopes.

-On his future plans to make Indiana Jones more inclusive, Steven Spielberg says the main character could be a woman. “We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” he told the Sun, proving that he doesn’t really understand how last names work.

-Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps apologized for dressing up as Diana Ross — but wants you to know it wasn’t blackface.

-So are Lorde and Jack Antonoff still a thing or nah?

Amy Schumer canceled an interview with a TV station owned by Sinclair, the broadcasting giant that’s been under fire for forcing its anchors to read politicized statements on air bashing the mainstream media.

-Here’s our first look at the Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot starring Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina. Here for it.

-Miss me with your takes about how badly Casey Affleck has been treated during the Me Too movement.

Blake Lively is trying to get paparazzi pictures of her daughter James at Martha Stewart’s Easter bash removed from websites. I hope she succeeds.

Mae Whitman is doing a cooking show parody? Yes, please!

-This is a good thread on why Roseanne’s joke about Blackish and Fresh off the Boat crossed a line. I still don’t get why ABC would green-light that.

-I have never read the Y: The Last Man comic, but my entire Twitter TL is celebrating the news that FX is developing a show around it. So yay?

-Holy crap, Amazon’s Lord of the Rings TV show is getting a five-year commitment and a *billion dollar budget*.

-Avengers: Infinity War is predicted to have a monster $200 million opening. I bet it’ll track even higher before then.

Terry Gilliam‘s long-delayed The Man Who Killed Don Quixote actually exists and there’s a trailer to prove it. Oh hai, Adam Driver!

James Franco Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Five Women

-And here it is: five women are accusing James Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior, according to a new LA Times report. Four were his students, and another said he was her mentor. Before the article broke, Franco appeared on Seth Meyers show, where he repeated basically verbatim what he said on Colbert, calling the accusations “not accurate” (yeah, that’s still the weirdest wording. Not exactly the same as “not true,” is it?), and reiterated that he supports women speaking up. (Good on Meyers for pressing Franco for “not being curious enough to reach out to” Ally Sheedy about her tweet. This is a great piece about how #MeToo is forcing late night talk show hosts to abandon their old-school PR obligations in favour of harder-hitting questions.)

-Meanwhile, his awards show campaign just came to a screeching halt. If he does get an Oscar nomination, it’s going to be incredibly awkward. (Voting ends tomorrow.) It’s a different world from last year’s Casey Affleck moment.

Johnathon Schaech has accused director Franco Zeffirelli of sexual misconduct 25 years ago.

-Also, Steven Seagal has been accused of a 1993 rape.

-Well, we’ve found someone who doesn’t want Oprah for president. Seal has accused her of knowing about the Weinstein rumours “for decades.”

Liam Neeson says the gender pay gap is “f***ing disrespectful” — but just don’t ask him to take a pay cut  “No. Pay cut? No, no, no, no. That’s going too far.” Sure.

-On his podcast, Community’s Dan Harmon offered a seven-minute apology to writer Megan Gatz, who called him out on Twitter last week for sexually harassing her.  She publicly forgave him, tweeting “I’m not being flippant. I didn’t bring up this mess just to sweep it back under the rug. But I find myself in the odd position of having requested an apology publicly, and then having received one—a good one—also publicly.”

-I don’t watch Major Crimes but this is gross. The show had only four episodes left to air before its series finale and yet they still felt the need to kill off its female lead (Mary McDonnell). AND they removed her name from the credits of the final episodes. That’s petty af.

Rosario Dawson is joining Jane the Virgin for a multi-episode arc. I love this casting so much that I don’t even care if she is going to be yet another obstacle between Jane and Ro. (Oh god, she is, isn’t she?!)

Anne Heche and James Tupper have split after more than 10 years together. (I once got a pedicure next to her and she was the nicest person ever.)

YouTube said Logan Paul will not be in the fourth season of Foursome, and “his new Originals are on hold.” His channels will also be removed from the Google Preferred platform.

Channing Tatum‘s X-Men spinoff Gambit just lost its third(!) director.

Rose Leslie says she and fiance Kit Harrington haven’t really had time to start thinking about wedding planning yet.

Sarah Jessica Parker “joked” with Stephen Colbert about how “according to just very recent documentation about why we’re not making [a SATC movie] is because the part usually played by Kim Cattrall has been vacated.”

Idris Elba has begun shooting new episodes of Luther. Praise be!

Charlize Theron is an overworked mom in the Tully trailer. It looks good, but I’ve been burned by this crew with Young Adult.

-This is very sweet: Spin posted Greta Gerwin’s letters to Justin Timberlake, Alanis Morissette, and Dave Matthews asking for music rights for Lady Bird.

-Also, I liked this article on Lady Bird. It’s definitely one of my fave movies of the year, and that piece does a good job of capturing why.

-And the walls keep tumbling down: Pixar/Disney exec John Lasseter announced he is taking a leave of absence just as The Hollywood Reporter was preparing a story detailing his alleged misconduct. Among the tidbits, Rashida Jones is credited as a writer on the next Toy Story, but she actually left the project early on after he made an unwanted advance.

-CBS has fired Charlie Rose. Here’s the memo that just went out to staffers.

-No. Mel Gibson DOES NOT get to make statements about holding men accountable. Just…no.
