Chris Evans Says Goodbye To Captain America

chris evans avengers captain america

Chris Evans covers the new issue of the Hollywood Reporter, where he talks about saying goodbye to the Avengers (“It’s a really obnoxious notion for an actor to say they’re going to retire — it’s not something you retire from”), what he’s looking for in a relationship (“I really like to be with someone who also has their own thing to do as well, you know? If I’m with someone who just kind of adopts my life, that can feel a bit suffocating”) and why he’ll never stop shit-talking Trump on Twitter (“You don’t want to alienate half your audience. But I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t speak up”).

-Sources are telling People that Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson are talking about marriage. I don’t understand life.

Justin Bieber is having a rough week. The poor kid announced that he’s taking a break from music for his mental health, and now a woman was arrested after barging into his hotel room.

Sandra Oh‘s SNL promos are very cute. Also, Russian Doll bangs are a thing now, huh?

-Speaking of Russian Doll, the show’s Charlie Barnett just landed a spot on season two of You.

-I like this profile on Jordan Peele. MadTV’s producers wouldn’t let him out of his contract to be on SNL, he says he locked himself in a room & started smoking a lot of weed, plotting his revenge, “like a comic book supervillain.”

-People are sooo mad at Jezebel’s very bad take on Jagged Little Pill. (Alanis Morissette is probably too busy to care. She just announced she’s expecting her third kid.)

-I like this piece about how stressful TV is now because you can now longer just be a viewer; you must be a preacher, a soldier and a campaign strategist to keep your show alive.

-This is a really good recap on what we know about the Jussie Smollett saga. I still think its weird that he agreed to not get back his $10k bond.

-There’s a Sex and the City sequel in the works because Hollywood has no new ideas.

-I did way too well on the quiz about whether it’s a TV ship name or a prescription drug. (Also, I didn’t know that The Walking Dead’s Glenn and Maggie ship name was Gleggie. They deserved better.)

-Barry returns to HBO Sunday and the second season is reportedly even better than the first. I don’t know how that’s possible, but I’ll take it.

-Villanelle escapes the hospital in the final Killing Eve trailer.

-Netflix has a new show coming out about disabled gay man played by an actual disabled gay man — and it looks delightful!

Jesse Pinkman is Back, B*tches!

-A Breaking Bad movie starring Aaron Paul is officially coming to Netflix, then AMC. It’ll be a sequel about where Jesse ended up which — I’m not sure I need? In my head he drove off into a happy, healthy future and I don’t think the movie will go there.

Miranda Lambert reportedly dumped a salad on a woman during an argument in restaurant and honestly, this is the only thing salad has ever been good for.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended a production of Wider Earth last night and wow, she looks so much further along than she did last week.

Jussie Smollett said he’s “pissed off” in his first interview since his attack.

Chris Evans was not amused by the photo ET Canada tweeted of him, but Netflix Canada swooped in to save the day.

-I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy anymore but I totally want Amy Acker to get that sweet, sweet ABC money.

-Some poor woman agreed to date Johnny Depp.

Priyanka Chopra and Rebel Wilson tried not to flinch while James Corden tested their nerves.

-Netflix tracked and saved every decision viewers made while watching Black Mirror’s choose-your-own adventure, which feels like the premise of a Black Mirror episode.

-Netflix also announced that Queer Eye season three will drop in March.

-The cast of The Big Bang Theory treated their studio audience to one final flash mob.

-This is an interesting look at why the review embargo on Robert Rodriguez‘s Alita: Battle Angel may have been so early.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Hustle, a remake of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. I’m very here for Anne’s terrible/awesome British accent.

 

Victoria Beckham Explains Why She Doesn’t Want a Spice Girls Reunion

Victoria Beckham covers Vogue Australia

Victoria Beckham looks amazing in the pages of Vogue Australia (though I’m not sold on the flesh-coloured bandeau). In the interview, she talks about why she doesn’t want to do a Spice Girls reunion (“I always wanted to do fashion, so I was lucky that music was never my main passion. For the other girls it was”) and why she left the group in the first place (“I remember sitting very near to the front [at an Elton John concert] and looking at him singing those songs he’d sung time after time, year after year, and his passion and his enjoyment was incredible, even after all that time. And a few nights later, I was on stage at Madison Square Garden with the Spice Girls and I thought: ‘It’s almost like a waste that I’m given this opportunity. I appreciate the time I’ve had with the girls, but I don’t have what Elton can have after all these years.’ There was nothing there, other than that my kids were in the audience and I wanted them to see Mummy doing the Spice Girls.”).

Bryan Singer is working hard to get ahead of an article that Esquire is about to publish an article that he says will ruin his career.

-This article about how Timothee Chalamet is the perfect movie star for 2018 (according to producers, agents and studio execs) is so, so weird.  There’s lots of talk about how he’s a soft “beta” and not a hard “alpha” like Leonardo DiCaprio by people who clearly forget that Leo was a teen heartthrob for decades (“He’s pretty fey,” says one veteran studio hand and Academy voter in his 60s. “He might be the next Anthony Perkins, rather than the next Leo”).  This part is especially gross: “Girls love him now because I don’t think they’re scared of him…You’re selling the new male. What does the new male movie star look like in a post #MeToo world, where you can’t get away with all the things the alpha guys used to crush it at?” What exactly were you trying to get away with before?!

-Speaking of articles that deal a lot about traditional movie star archetypes, Viggo Mortensen talks about how not becoming famous until he was in his 40s helped him avoid celebrity traps. I have mixed feelings about Green book — I liked it but it’s problematic — but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s part of the mix when Oscar talk comes around. (Also, I can’t believe he’s going to be 60 in 5 days!)

-I was genuinely surprised by Meghan Markle’s pregnancy announcement. I wonder how Princess Eugenie feels about the fact that they announced it to the family at her wedding?

-Twitter is fantasy casting a movie with Kerry Washington and Chris Evans, and Washington is into it because she’s no fool.

Jennifer Garner says an Alias reboot may be in the works. Despite my reboot fatigue, I don’t hate this idea.

-Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Scott Thomas have designed sweaters, with proceeds going to their fave charities.

Nicole Kidman has not one, but two movies that are generating Oscar buzz (Boy Erased and Destroyer) so she’ll be doing quite a bit of press in the next few months. Still, I’m surprised that she talked about Tom Cruise in a new interview while addressing #MeToo: “I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of [the marriage] at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”

-I really like Ariana Grande and I hope she’s doing ok after her split from Pete Davidson. At least it happened before the wedding.

-On a new podcast, Taran Killam got candid about the mood behind the scenes on SNL: “When Seth Meyers left the show, the dynamic changed quite a bit. He was the last person there who I witnessed really collaborate with Lorne, as opposed to just kind of do what Lorne says.”

Drake comes off really, really well when talking about his drama with Pusha T in Lebron James’ new HBO show The Shop.

Ansel Elgort is living two different lives in the Jonathan trailer.
