Jamie Dornan Doesn’t Like BDSM…or His Fifty Shades Character


-“It doesn’t float my boat,” Jamie Dornan says of S&M. I’m guessing answering invasive questions about his sex life probably doesn’t do much for him either…

-Wow, Orlando Bloom is still really proud of those paparazzi nude pics, huh?

Serena Williams answered 73 questions for Vogue.

David Beckham and James Corden‘s new underwear ad is pretty damn perfect.

Bryce Dallas Howard wasn’t great at playing Pyramid on The Tonight Show – much to the chagrin of teammate Michael Strahan.

Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson go to a “movement guru” and I need to know everything about this STAT.

Matthew McConaughey says Camila Alves rejected him at the start of their relationship. She was probably just remembering his performance in The Wedding Planner…

-Wonderfalls’ Caroline Dhavernas is in a new TV series? Yes please!

Jessica Biel also landed a new TV series, which seems like the right career move for her.

Drew Barrymore goes full zombie in the first full trailer for Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet. I really like the campy tone of this, but am hoping they don’t go too overboard with the gore.

-Speaking of Netflix’s trailers, here’s the new one for Bob Odenkirk‘s Girlfriend’s Day.

-Also, Jerry Seinfeld just signed a huge Netflix deal.

-Wait, neither Skylar Astin and Ben Platt are in Pitch Perfect 3? I’m not sure I’m ok with this.

Riz Ahmed, Matthew Rhys, Tracey Ullman, Corey Stoll, Rita Wilson and pretty much everyone else in Hollywood will appear in Girls’ last season.

Lena Dunham debuted a animated film about Planned Parenthood’s history called 100 Years, narrated by Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, America Ferrera, Constance Wu, Mindy Kaling, and more.

-Meanwhile, as much as I’m not always a fan of Chelsea Handler, I really liked her essay on why she’s leading the Women’s March in Park City this weekend. I’m marching. Are you? For sister march information in your city, click here.

-I dig that the AV Club is paying tribute to Popular, Ryan Murphy‘s first (and best?) series. I needed this reminder since Arrow has somehow managed to dull my love of Carly Pope.

-Ohhhhh…a new Spoon song.

-This is nice: if No Tomorrow and Frequency end up getting canceled, the CW promises they’re wrap up each show’s stories with webisodes. I don’t watch either, but I like this trend.

-Like many, many TV costars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman probably don’t like each other very much. Whenever I read anything about Freeman I’m reminded of this terrible EW interview. I probably wouldn’t like him very much IRL either.

-Meanwhile, I don’t watch Sherlock but man is the internet angry about that finale.

Cate Blanchett tackles 13(!) different roles in the new Manifesto trailer.

Brangelina Split, but Jennifer Aniston Gets All The Covers?


-UPDATE: Brad Pitt is reportedly being investigated for child abuse after allegedly getting verbally and physically abusive on a private plane with his family last week. More to come, but I guess we know what that inciting “incident” Us Weekly keeps talking about is…

-Tabloids deserve all the eyerolls today. Brangelina‘s split news dropped too late for most to change this week’s covers, so the lower-tiered ones are stuck running their typical (*cough* false *cough*) stories about Jennifer Aniston. Except for the New York Post, who inexplicably ran their Brangelina split cover today — and didn’t feature a photo of Brangelina. Not surprisingly, the online reaction was swift and punishing. I’m wondering how long it’ll take Aniston to ask to remove herself from this narrative?

-I actually thought that if anyone had a chance to rush a new cover to press before their Tuesday deadline it’d be People, but it looks like they were stuck with their Michael Strahan one. At least were in for some deep dives across the newsstand next week.

-Oh my god, I didn’t even think about how the split is going to affect Brangelina’s Miravel rosé. But that’s my summer water!

-Just in case you weren’t already convinced that Brad Pitt was blindsided, here’s footage of CNN breaking the divorce news to George Clooney.

-Meanwhile, I love Lainey’s acutely sharp insight into how Pitt is floundering without being the beneficiary of Angelina Jolie‘s media savvy. He’s going to need to tighten up if he’s fighting for joint custody, as TMZ is reporting.

Chelsea Handler weighed in on the split by saying “he married a ***king lunatic.” Not that she’s biased or anything.

-Also, I’m going to really, really need Jam Session to drop an emergency Brangelina podcast stat.

-In other couple news, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes’ camps have shot down Us Weekly’s report that they are secretly married. Gawd Hollywood, can’t you give us one thing to hold onto this week?!

-Ok, let’s turn to happier topics, shall we? Like Parks and Rec’s Jean-Ralphio meeting his doppelganger, Stranger Things’ Steve.

Idris Elba is going to be on TV again. Just pour this show directly into my eyeballs ASAP.

Joss Whedon recruited stars from Buffy, Avengers, Greys Anatomy, Blindspot and more for a predictably great anti-Trump PSA. And he returned to Twitter!

Gabrielle Union continues to impress the hell out of me on her Birth of a Nation press tour. “In order to begin to see change start to occur, we have to be willing to have conversations with people who have different opinions than us. I’ve already talked to Lena Dunham; I would love to talk to Kate Upton and Amy Schumer. Maybe I can help to explain the oppressive systems that have benefited and allowed them to say these careless, insensitive and offensive things. Those conversations are awkward as f-ck and they get heated.”

Uma Thurman is the latest movie star to make the jump to TV.

-Folk aren’t impressed with Karen Gillan‘s ‘sexist’ Jumanji outfit, but she insists there’s a reason why she’s wearing child-sized clothes.

-How come this is the first I’m hearing about Netflix’s Easy, a show that drops tomorrow starring Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Hannibal Buress, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Jake Johnson from the guy who did Drinking Buddies??  I love all of those people! This is the issue of peak TV meeting Netflix’s revulsion for promotion – stuff gets lost in the shuffle.

-I spent a lot of time staring at the McQueen dress Emily Blunt wore to The Girl On The Train premiere and trying to figure out if I like it or not. I think so?  Ask me again in five minutes and I might not.

-My stance on Felicity Jones’ terrible dress at the Burberry show is much less conflicted.

Leah Remini is teaming up with A&E for a new series on Scientology. Here for it.

-Intriguing: Jeffrey Tambor says he has “marching orders” to return to the Arrested Development set in January.

-I love that Chris Pratt braiding interviewers’ hair is now a thing. (Also, Denzel is in a way better mood in this video than he seemed at TIFF.)

-This is really great writing on The Ringer this week celebrating the types of TV that critics tend to ignore. As much as I like Atlanta, Mr Robot, etc., I’m most looking forward to the return of superheroes and soapy dramas.

-This new Anne of Green Gables trailer is…something.

-Yes, Ryan Gosling plays a keytard in La La Land. Him posing with it while biting his lower lip –as well as the scene where Emma Stone forces him to perform “I Ran” — is pure delight.

Gosling, Kate Hudson and Hugh Grant read mean tweets about themselves on Kimmel last night.

Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe get their math on in the new Hidden Figures trailer. People who saw this at TIFF loved it.

Gwyneth Paltrow Dines with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Gwyneth Paltrow somehow ended up having dinner with Arnold Schwarzenegger. No one seems more surprised than her.

John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick play an expectant couple in their new movie and I want it in my eyeballs right now!

-Also, John talking about his love of Emily Blunt will make you dissolve into a puddle and evaporate.

Michelle Williams is clearly the Sundance MVP this year. Between Manchester By The Sea (which everyone is RAVING about) and Certain Women, she’s a lock for award show chatter next season.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom still might be a thing.

Jon Hamm‘s name is misspelled on his Golden Globe. Not great, Bob!

Julie Delpy is clarifying her recent diversity statement that created so much controversy. Just stop talking, white actors.

Matthew Perry says he can’t remember three years of Friends because he was so “out of it.” (People of my generation call that “Tracy Gold-ing it”).

-Meanwhile, here’s the first photo from the (not really) Friends reunion, allowing us yet another opportunity to play ‘what the hell is Aniston wearing?!?’

Robert Downey Jr. just revealed that the Avengers gang has a group text going and I so want these to leak!

-Speaking of the Avengers, Mark Ruffalo lost his wallet and tweeted an adorable pic of the family who returned it.

Mariah Carey‘s engagement ring is beyond massive.

Chelsea Handler says her worst interview was Justin Bieber. Shocker.

-What do you do when a giant snowstorm cancels your fan convention? If you’re Stephen Amell and John Barrowman, you go to the hotel where most of your fans are stuck at and sing showtunes for them.

-Ok, so the first X Files episode was pretty bad (um, did they just throw out the entire series mythology? Really glad I did that rewatch, guys), but the ratings were solid. Tonight’s episode will be the real test — mostly because I don’t think they’ve done a good job of letting people know there’s a new one on tonight.

-I love this article on Dana Scully’s evolving fashion — and not just because it’s titled ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pantsuit.’

-It’s the dawning of the latest Batman v Superman trailer, which finally features Wonder Woman. Still not sold on this.
