Big Little Lies Gets Big Coverage in InStyle

big-little-lies-witherspoon-kidman-kravitz

-The cast of Big Little Lies each get covers for the new issue of InStyle, in which Reese Witherspoon says she recently fought for an actress to get equal pay (“She’ll never know I made that call or had that conversation with the head of a studio. But I said to him, ‘This is the comp. This white guy over here is making this amount of money, and she’s done this, that, and the other with such success – and you’re asking for her to have a third of that. That’s not okay with me'”), while Nicole Kidman shares relationship advice (“The greatest thing our family priest told us very early on in our marriage was, ‘Always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.’ It just keeps you connected”). The video is cute too — I like Reese’s stance on visible Spanx.

Kidman also did an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, in which she says that Hugh Jackman helped her get over Tom Cruise. “When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing. They were some of my best friends through that period.”

-I tuned into most of the Billboard Music Awards and they were a trip: Madonna‘s $5 million holograms freaked me out; Paula Abdul‘s dance party proved that 56-year-olds can still move; and Drake tried to steal some of Ayra Stark’s shine.  Plus, new mom Cardi B looked amazing— but I couldn’t stop staring at her abs. Real, or real with contouring help? Either way, I’m envious!

-I can’t get enough of the footage of Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ surprise Vegas wedding after the Billboard Music Awards. The Elvis impersonator! The ring pops! Her pantsuit! I’m guessing another ceremony is coming because Turner’s previously mentioned that Maisie Williams would be her bridesmaid (Us Weekly claims there’s something being planned in France), but this is awesome.

-Speaking of surprise weddings, Jude Law just got married.

Kelly Clarkson said she was miserable during the making of From Justin to Kelly. “I cried. I talked to many lawyers and could not get out of the movie.”

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Once Stormed Off View Set After Being Reprimanded by Barbara Walters

-New audio from The View reveals that Elisabeth Hasselbeck once threatened to quit the show during a commercial break after a fight with Barbara Walters over the morning after pill. “What the f**k! I don’t even swear. She has me swearing. This woman is driving me nuts. I’m not going back. I can’t do the show like this. She just reprimanded me, and she knew exactly what she was doing. Goodbye! I’m off. Write about that in the New York F**KING Post!”

-The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss tells Marie Claire that’s she’s dating someone, but won’t say who. “I learned you just don’t talk about it. Who really gives a s**t whether or not I’m dating anyone? I hate to put that importance on it. I cringe a little.”

-I love that Reese Witherspoon badly photoshopped Zoe Kravitz into her pic from the Big Little Liars set.

-This thread on how only male reviewers seem to think that Captain Marvel has no character arc is so, so good.

-Fleabag’s current season will be its last. With the end of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and You’re The Worst this week, Broad City last week, and Jane the Virgin this summer, we’re seriously losing a lot of amazing, female-driven shows with messy protagonists.

-Does anyone else think the rumours about Fergie and Prince Andrew getting back together could just be a distraction from the juicier royal rumours circulating this week?

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Dodges Game of Thrones Spoilers

Nikolaj-Coster-Waldau-Game-Thrones-Mens-Health

-Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau covers the new issue of Men’s Health Magazine and I love how he handles questions about what happens to his character in the final season: don’t evade when you can just make sh*t up. “I can’t tell you anything about that. He grows out his arm. His arm grows back. Yes. It grows back, but not in the way you think. It’s a claw. It comes out as a claw. No — it’s a paw.”

Samuel L. Jackson covers the new issue of Esquire, and he talks about not caring about pissing off Trump fans by speaking out (“I know how many motherf*ckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*ck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*ck you”) and why he has no plans to retire from acting (“It’s not like I’m digging a ditch. I go on set, do some shit. I go back and sit in my trailer for two hours watching TV, eat a sandwich, read. And I go back and do ten more minutes and go sit down some more. So, yeah, it’s a great job.”)

Felicity Huffman appeared in federal court in Los Angeles this afternoon, after reportedly being arrested at home yesterday for a college entrance scheme by FBI agents with their guns drawn. A judge ordered her released on $250,000 bond. Meanwhile, Lori Loughlin turned herself into the FBI in advance of a court hearing.

-Also Laughlin’s daughter posted a lot of videos that are now coming back to bite her in the ass.

-I very much enjoyed this article on Captain Marvel and the freeing power of not giving a f*ck.

-Is everyone finally starting to believe La Toya Jackson?

-Do you think Lindsay Lohan didn’t realize that Instagram was down for everybody today??

Keira Knightley can play “Despacito” — on her teeth.

Nick Jonas got Priyanka Chopra a $200,000 Mercedes. I guess having so many sponsored weddings worked out well for them.

-SNL announced its next few hosts: Sandra Oh, Kit Harrington and Emma Stone (with musical guest BTS, which will make the kids go insane).

-I’ve pretty much given up on TV these last couple of months, but the next few weeks of premieres is stacking up to be INSANE: Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, Jane the Virgin, What We Do In Shadows, Barry, Legends of Tomorrow, The Bold Type, Fleabag, Catastrophe, The Good Fight, Fosse/Verdon, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, iZombie, Good Omens. I can already hear my PVR groaning…

-One the I might skip is Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie, which Sepinwall says is less a TV show than a checklist of things Idris Elba wanted to prove he could do on camera.

-Another that sounds skippable is Arrested Development. The second half of season five drops on Netflix this weekend and the reviews are not kind.

-Meanwhile, Fosse/Verdon, starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, sound like it’s unskippable.

-The Good Fight is back tomorrow night and according to reviews it’s still amazing. Too bad no one’s watching it because in the US it’s only available on CBS’ All Access app. (Though if it aired on regular CBS, it probably wouldn’t have lasted this long). I like the idea this writer suggests: CBS air it on sister network Showtime, much like BBC did with AMC once it realized what it had on its hands with Killing Eve.

-Ever trailer I see of Long Shot starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, I get more intrigued. Here’s the red band version.

-Speaking of Seth Rogen, he produced Good Boys starring Jacob Tremblay as a filthy-mouthed sixth grader.
