-In the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Oprah chats with Julia Roberts, who talks about her kids coming to the realization that she’s not your average mom (‘Are you more famous than Taylor Swift?’), grapples with her feelings about Instagram (“One weekend morning [my niece] Emma [Roberts] slept over, and we got up and were having tea and playing cards and having this beautiful morning, and then a couple of days later she posted a picture of us. And the number of people who felt absolutely required to talk about how terrible I looked in the picture — that I’m not aging well, that I look like a man, why would she even post a picture like this when I look that terrible! And I was amazed at how that made me feel”), and reveals how she celebrated her 50th with her husband (“I said, ‘How about this? We have five days away with zero contact with the outside world.’ That was 50, and it was so beautiful and wonderful. It was just the two of us, and there was a point where I thought, ‘Gosh, this is kind of weird.'”).

George Clooney presented an award to Emma Gonzalez at Variety’s Power of Women ceremony, saying “These are trying times, and trying times create inspirational leaders.” (Also, bless him for introducing himself as “Amal Clooney’s husband”.)

-There were lots of great speeches at the ceremony. Natalie Portman outlined what women in Hollywood can do: “Gossip well. Stop the rhetoric that a woman is crazy or difficult. If a man says to you that a woman is crazy or difficult, ask him: what bad thing did you do to her?” Tiffany Haddish advised to “be yourself and don’t try to be something that you’re not, because that’s when you become a bitter-ass bitch.”

Princess Eugenie got married today and her open-back wedding dress was lovely, but Cara Delevingne stole the show by showing up in a top hat and tails.

Neil Patrick Harris was on The View this week and had a very strange exchange with Whoopi Goldberg about sex. You ok, Doogie?

-This review of the soundtrack to A Star Is Born by someone who hasn’t seen the movie yet made me laugh out loud repeatedly. There were so many good bits, but this might be my fave: “This track was when I fully realized that, to borrow parlance from Vulture associate editor and top-five favorite Twitter user Hunter Harris, I wanted Bradley Cooper to [redacted] me by the [redacted] and [redacted] my [redacted] until we [redacted] at the same time because it seems like that would be possible with him.”

Ryan Adams has apologized for those butthurt tweets about Mandy Moore. “I apologize for my remarks. I was trying to be funny. But I have and will always choose to remember the amazing moments.”

-This is an interesting look at exactly how many men’s lives have been “ruined” since #MeToo started a year ago this week. (Spoiler alert: not many.)

Hugh Jackman‘s tweets about turning 50 are predictably charming.

Shiri Appleby is out here reuniting with all her old costars. Last week it was her Life Unexpected crew, this week Roswell.

-Marvel has fired Chuck Wendig and I don’t really know a lot about the comics world but my Twitter feed is NOT HAVING IT.

-Is new show FBI seriously on its third showrunner already? It’s only aired three episodes!

-Terrible: a crewmember on Sony’s Mr. Rogers pic died after a fall on set.

-This Johnny Depp press tour continues to be horrible. He’s not going to have any axes left to grind after this…

Chris Hemsworth talks about being uneasy with his wealth in the new issue of GQ: “I feel gross about it. I remember saving up for a surfboard when I was younger. The surfboard was 600 bucks and I saved up for a whole year with Dad’s help. I didn’t even want to surf on it for fear of damaging it. It taught me so many lessons about appreciation and working hard for something. When I think about my kids, I don’t want them to miss that joy. Elsa and I talk a lot about how we instill that same appreciation and respect for things.”

Usher dropped a surprise album this morning.

Jaboukie Young-White‘s debut on The Daily Show was very, very good.

-I’m bummed that All American tanked in the ratings. On the plus side, it’s on the CW and they don’t seem to care about pesky little details like that…

-Here’s the first Aladdin teaser. I was hoping for a glimpse of Will Smith as the genie, but at least we get confirmation that Mena Massoud‘s Aladdin is hot.

Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and James McAvoy complete M. Night Shyamalan‘s trilogy more than 18 years in the making in the new Glass trailer.

Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell go head-to-head in the trailer for The Best of Enemies, which depicts the real-life feud and subsequent friendship between civil rights activist Ann Atwater and former Ku Klux Klan leader C.P. Ellis.

Leighton Meester Is Not Interested in a Gossip Girl Reunion

Leighton Meester Gossip Girl

-I’m here for Leighton Meester gushing about hubby Adam Brody. I’m even more here for her gently shading her Gossip Girl experience: “I’m not haunted by that time, but it’s been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, ‘I don’t know if it was the healthiest environment.'”

Joe Alwyn has no interest in talking about his relationship with Taylor Swift. He says in a new interview, “I understand people’s curiosity in the world we live in, about people’s private lives. Well, I don’t understand it, but I know it exists. For me, I just don’t feel it’s something I want to offer up to be picked apart by people who don’t know about it, and it’s just not theirs to have.”

Millie Bobby Brown is defending her text relationship with Drake, because it’s totally not weird for a 31-year-old dude to text a preteen.

-Here’s our first look at Joaquin Phoenix in Joker makeup. It’s suitably terrifying.

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse: still boning.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson look just fine after a photo surfaced in which she may have been crying (or possibly just sneezing).

-I didn’t think I wanted a Men In Black spinoff. Then Chris Hemsworth posted this selfie from the set with Tessa Thompson, and now I NEED it!

Keira Knightley says she can’t wait to see drag queens dress up like her from The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which is a pretty great goal.

Kevin Hart freaked the eff out on the Tonight Show when as Robert Irwin, 14-year-old son of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, brought out some snakes, a bird and a tarantula. “I got so much sweat drippin’ down my ass right now!”

-I actually believe that Gina Rodriguez can do 1,000 pushups. I’ve seen her Insta stories about doing chin ups in her trailer and she’s a beast!

-The first Venom clip shows Eddie Brock being a terrible journalist.

Chris Hemsworth Goes Undercover on the Internet

-Man, this video that Chris Hemsworth shot for his GQ cover story is charming as hell.

-Here’s a deeper look at Rihanna and Donald Glover‘s new longform video shoot. I want it yesterday!

-Whenever there’s a new E Alex Jung profile of Sandra Oh, it’s an immediate “drop everything and read” moment. I like that they talk about Double Happiness (which was a big deal here in Canada). She also talks about her one and only major US magazine cover for Marie Claire: “I was so profoundly disappointed with the cover they chose. Because I didn’t feel like it was representing me, and it wasn’t a good shot.”

-This is a really good timeline about what the hell is going on with Elon Musk, Azealia Banks and Grimes — but I’m still confused.

Drake praised Toronto during his show here last night: “I’m forever grateful, everywhere I go, I carry the value of this city with me. Every night that I go and I do a show in America, I tell them, ‘This is how the world is supposed to work.’ You see, tonight, we got 17,000 people inside one building from all races, from all places, and all we are doing is just listening to music, and smoking and drinking — and enjoying our lives. That’s how we been doing our shit since day one.”

-A new Kevin Spacey sexual assault case is being reviewed by the L.A. District Attorney’s Office.

-Oh no: Michaela Coel says she was sexually assaulted when she was working on Chewing Gum. She says she was writing an episode so she was staying at the office overnight and stepped out for a quick drink when she was drugged and assaulted by strangers. The show’s producers sent her to a private clinic and funded her therapy until the end of the shoot, but her relationship with them changed. “When there are police involved, and footage, of people carrying your sleeping writer into dangerous places, when cuts are found, when there’s blood … what is your job?”

-I never thought we’d see this day: The Big Bang Theory is ending after this season.

-In news that should surprise no one, the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians has been green-lit.

-This is great: Crazy Rich Asians’ Jon Chu and Henry Golding are buying out a theatre for John Cho‘s Searching movie.

-The resurgence of rom coms means the resurgence of great writing about rom coms. Here’s a look at all the books that have been optioned in the last few months (The Hating Game is my go-to comfort book, and I just finished The Kiss Quotient, which was delightful), and here’s a look at the movies that have used the fake boyfriend trope best.

-Also, I really, really liked this piece on why TATBILB’s Peter Kavinsky is such a good romantic lead. He doesn’t have an arc about learning how to respect her boundaries or share his feelings; he’s already built that way. “Every upcoming romantic comedy should take a look at the fan reaction to Peter and Lara Jean’s relationship and think — really think — about what makes them so appealing in this year 2018.”

-Unfortunately, it looks like the guy who plays Josh in TATBILB has made some problematic tweets.

-The Destination Wedding press junket is already amazing. Gah, Keanu and Winona are going to kill us before this thing even premieres.

-Not only will the CW’s crossover event feature Batwoman this year, but Superman and Lois Lane will also join in on the fun.

-I’m way more interested in Amazon’s Jack Ryan series now that I know it features a supporting turn from Wendell Pierce as Ryan’s mentor.

-The End Of The Fxxxing World has been renewed for Season 2 at Netflix. I’m very conflicted about this. I adored its 8-episode run earlier this year on Netflix and it will most certainly end up on my Best TV of 2018 list at the end of the year. But on the flip side, it was such a good example of a show that should be one and done. That perfect, ambiguous ending basically meant you could interpret it any way you’d like.

-I was hoping the R-rated puppet comedy The Happytime Murders might be a fun summertime distraction, but wow are the reviews brutal. Both IndieWire and Screencrush say it’s “the worst movie of the summer,” Variety says it’s “a waste of time and felt,” the Guardian calls it “a staggeringly bad attempt to add X-rated humour to Sesame Street,”  i09 calls it “a massive disappointment,” and Vanity Fair says it may be “the worst movie of the year.”

Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish cram four years of high school in the new Night School trailer.

Lee Pace, Jason Sudeikis, Judy Greer, and Corey Stoll star in Driven, which is debuting at TIFF.
