Chris Brown Denies Rape Allegations

Chris Brown has been released from custody in Paris with no charges after being detained after a 24-year-old woman accused him of raping her in his hotel room last week. He denied the allegations in an Instagram post. The Paris prosecutor’s office said the investigation is ongoing.

-According to People, Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron met six months ago on a commercial shoot and haven’t seen each other since. We knew that was too good to be true.

-Ooh boy. Taraji P Henson posted an IG story that implied she’s mad there are hashtags about muting R Kelly but none about muting Harvey Weinstein. But the “mute” thing trended because Kelly’s a musician. And Weinstein’s already being “muted” cause he is on trial, no?

-In terms of Oscar noms, it was a great morning for Black Panther, Roma and The Favourite, but not so great for Crazy Rich Asians and If Beale Street Could Talk. Bradley Cooper should be happy for his acting nod, but you just know that he’s burning about being snubbed in the Best Director category. Check out more Oscar snubs and surprises.

-I’m surprised it took so long for these questions to start coming, but Rami Malek was asked whether he has any “regrets” about working with Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody. “I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is.” Hmmmmm….

-Also, did Esquire’s big exposé on Singer get squashed? Now the Bohemian Rhapsody is up for Best Picture, this would be the time to print it. If it doesn’t get publishing in the next couple of weeks, I’m guessing it was blocked.

Anna Wintour shared her thoughts on Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding gown , saying it was “sophisticated, it was chic, it was grown up. It was an English designer, albeit one that was working for a French house, which in a way was a message to the world: ‘Yes, I’m from somewhere else, but I belong.'”

Azealia Banks called Grimes a ‘brittleboned methhead’ who smells ‘like a roll of nickels’. But how do you *really* feel?

-In an appearance on Ellen, the Anne Hathaway said that she made the decision to stop drinking for the next 18 years because she doesn’t want to be hungover around her kid. “I’m going to stop drinking while my son is in the house just because I don’t totally don’t love the way I do it and he’s getting to an age where he really does need me all the time in the morning.” Also, her and Fred Savage were really good at the Head’s Up game.

Tessa Thompson attended the Chanel show at Paris Haute Couture Week SS19 with a purse necklace. Oh god, I just got used to fanny packs!

-Russian Doll is the next Netflix show that every critic I follow is loving. It stars Natasha Lyonne as a woman stuck in a Groundhog Day/Happy Death Day loop, and it premieres next Friday.

Sarah Jesscia Parker recreated the Sex and the City opener for a charity campaign.

-Wait, there’s a new Nancy Drew?

Elisabeth Moss covers the new issue of THR, in which she talks about becoming an accidental women’s rights activist thanks to The Handsmaid’s Tale: “Now is not really a time to stand in the middle. You’ve got to pick a side”

-Speaking of Moss, the Mad Men pilot aired for the first time ten years ago today. Here’s a bunch of the cast talking about it.

-If anyone was going deliver juicy pregnancy drama, it was going to be Mindy Kaling. So far, she’s not disappointing us. According to People, she’s keeping her baby daddy’s identity a secret, even from her closest friends.

Jennifer Lawrence’s attendance at a Broadway showing of 1984 didn’t go very well. She ended up puking in the lobby.

Ben Affleck has dropped out of Netflix’s Triple Frontier “to take some time to focus on his wellness and his family.” He was spotted on a low-key outing in NYC with Lindsay Shookus today.

-Meanwhile, everyone needs to slow their roll when it comes to jumping on Ben about that “on-screen gay kiss” quote. First of all, it’s not even a direct quote; it’s a story that Kevin Smith told. Secondly, the story was from 20 years ago. Unclench, people.

Julia Roberts‘ TV series Homecoming is coming to Amazon, so expect that to sweep the Emmys next year.

-This video that’s gone viral of Mariah Carey’s dance moves speaks to my productivity level today.

-HBO just announced a new series about an alternate reality where slavery was never outlawed — created by Game of Thrones’ white showrunners Benioff/Weiss. Yes, they brought on Nichelle Tramble Spellman (Justified) and Malcolm Spellman (Empire) as EPs but … yikes. HBO NO, amirite?

-Meanwhile, Star Wars’ John Boyega hit out at the lack of diversity in Game of Thrones.

Charlize Theron Gets Tough in W

Charlize Theron W

Charlize Theron previews her ass-kicking role in Atomic Blonde in the new issue of W. She talks about the only bar fight she’s ever been in, accidentally punching Teri Hatcher in the face, and getting injured on set.

-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges. Fargo’s Allison Tolman made a good point on Twitter: what would have the response been if an actress made those types of comments? Katherine Heigl was crucified for much less.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins have finally left the hospital.

Brad Pitt is probably not dating Sienna Miller or Elle McPherson. What other attractive, age appropriate blonde can we throw at him?

-War for the Planet of the Apes is getting really good reviews. Like really, really good. Huh.

-Now that Netflix has started cancelling shows, they just can’t stop. Girlboss is the latest casualty.

-One of Johnny Depp‘s former manager backs up Amber Heard’s accusations against the actor. Well, if a man says it happens I guess everyone can believe her now, right?

-Here are more details about what really went down in the Hans Solo movie. An interesting tidbit: Lucasfilm decided to bring in an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich when they were not entirely satisfied with the performance (acting coaches are not unusual — bringing one in that late into production is.)

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.

-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.

-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.
