The Leading Ladies Speak Up

actress-roundtable

-The Hollywood Reporter’s actress roundtable features Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Kathryn Hahn, Nicole Kidman, Regina King and Rachel Weisz. They talk about the times they wished they had spoken up more on set, and why it’s important to speak openly about pay and treatment. Said Kidman: “Working with younger actresses, I say, ‘Ask me anything and I’ll answer. Ask me anything financially. If you need advice, just ask. I can only tell you what I advise and you might take it or leave it. But it’s nice to have access to information.'”

-Similarly in an interview from Sundance, Michelle Williams remembers how an older actress flagged inappropriate actions on set she was younger, and now she wants to do the same. “It’s up to me to protect these women, girls who are younger than I am. And teach them how to protect themselves.”

Patton Oswalt responded to an online attacker by donating money to the troll’s GoFundMe page and it all ended very sweetly.

Shawn Mendes Addresses Sexuality, Hailey Baldwin

-In his new Rolling Stone cover story, Shawn Mendes says his relationship with Hailey Baldwin wasn’t as platonic as he first implied. “I don’t even want to put a title on it. I think it was more of a zone of limbo…She’s still one of the f–king coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met.” He also talks about how the gay rumours stress him out, and how he watching his interviews to analyze his voice and his body language: “In the back of my heart, I feel like I need to go be seen with someone — like a girl — in public, to prove to people that I’m not gay. Even though in my heart I know that it’s not a bad thing. There’s still a piece of me that thinks that. And I hate that side of me.” Ugh. Leave the poor kid alone.

-We truly are living in a golden age of celebrity profiles. This feature on Lena Dunham by Allison P. Davis is breathtakingly good.  I didn’t really think I’d want to read anything more about her, but this is not a fawning, laudatory profile. Davis goes deep (addressing the frequent criticisms thrown Dunham’s way, the rumours that she is a bad pet owner, her stumbles over race, etc), and the result is an article that makes you both sympathize with her as you’re rolling your eyes at her. My fave part: “As she texts me increasingly intimate details that she knows I’ll put in this article, as if she were trying to be the director of her own candid, sympathy-generating magazine story, I begin to wonder if Lena Dunham, the performance artist daring us to hate her, is the work.”

Meek Mills penned a powerful op-ed on prisoner rights reform for the NYT.

Amanda Bynes is on the cover of Paper and seems to be doing legitimately well, which makes me happy. She talks about fighting to cast Channing Tatum in She’s The Man, and admits her drug use started by getting hooked on Adderall because she’d read in a magazine that it keeps you skinny.

-It’s that time of year again! Oprah has unveiled her favourite things, in case you’re in the market for a $42 candle. (I actually found most of the gifts super affordable. I don’t know if she’s come down to Earth or if GOOP has warped my expectations.)

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly planning to get married next month after just seven months of dating, which seems smart.
