Chrissy Teigen Can Fix Your Life

Chrissy Teigen Porter Cover

-In her PorterEdit digital cover story, Chrissy Teigen talks social media regrets (“Everything ‘big’ I’ve ever said was just heat of the moment and sometimes very regrettable. I just pop off too quick”) and her tough early years as a model (“My roommates were drinking diet tea and eating cotton balls soaked in chicken broth to stay skinny. I remember my friend got a job working at a burrito restaurant and that’s all I ate for months. Free burritos”). She also appears in a cute video for them where she offers relationship advice.

-This is sad: according to Page Six, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has been in a luxury rehab facility for stress and alcohol use for a month, checking himself in weeks before the show’s finale aired.

Chris Hemsworth is on the cover of Variety, where he reveals he nearly quit Ghostbusters: “The night before I was shooting, I almost pulled out. Three or four weeks prior, Paul [Feig] said to me, ‘I’m going to write up the character. Don’t worry.’ And then I got the script and nothing had changed…I was really scared walking onto that set. I had no real plan, so I was just feeding off of them, and I just felt ridiculous. So I used that.”

Mandy Moore has made it to Mt. Everest’s base camp. It’s been an exceptionally deadly month on the mountain so I’m glad she’s fine. Now get back down already!

-The View cut off the audio for Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg‘s comments on Trump today for extended portions of the broadcast.

-The latest season of Legends of Tomorrow is now on Netflix and you should all watch it because it’s a loopy delight! I mean, any show where a dude’s nipple turns evil and starts possessing him deserves a shot. (I agree with Sepinwall’s take — skip season one completely.)

Iggy Azalea is planning on pressing charges after stolen topless photos (which were reportedly outtakes from a 2016 GQ Australia shoot) leaked over the weekend.

-Netflix’s Ted Sarandos says the streamer will rethink its massive investment in Georgia if the heartbeat abortion law goes into effect.

-This Atlanta outtake of the boys dancing to TLC made my day.

-ABC has officially passed on renewing Whiskey Cavalier after briefly reconsidering. Cancellations are always rough, but it feels like they handled this whole thing especially poorly.

-On an episode of David Letterman’s Netflix talk show, Ellen DeGeneres revealed she was sexually assaulted as a teenager by her stepfather. “He told me when she was out of town that he’d felt a lump in [my mother’s] breast and needed to feel my breasts because he didn’t want to upset her, but he needed to feel mine. I’m angry at myself because, you know, I didn’t — I was too weak to stand up to — I was 15 or 16. It’s a really horrible, horrible story and the only reason I’m actually going to go into detail about it is because I want other girls to not ever let someone do that.”

Neil Patrick Harris, Ruby Rose, Janet Mock, Anderson Cooper, Wilson Cruz, and Melissa Etheridge are on the cover of EW’s new Pride issue.

-I’m surprised by the surprise that Booksmart didn’t crack $10M at the box office this weekend. What exactly did people expect a small indie to take in while up against Aladdin and superheroes? And blaming it all on marketing seems really weird — I saw a LOT of stuff about this movie before its release (unlike Fast Color, which the studio seems to be burying). It seemed to be more of an issue of choosing the worst possible release date + not really knowing their target demo (who was the constant “it’s Superbad but with girls!” talk supposed to resonate with?) + the decision to open it wide out of the gate instead of a slower rollout to build word of mouth.

-I didn’t exactly love the Killing Eve season finale, but man people are mad about it!

-This is a good profile on Mischa Barton, whose TV show helped inspire the reality TV she’s now a part of.

-Here are the early contenders for song of the summer. (I belted out “Old Town Road” with my uber driver the other day, so that gets my vote.)

-I don’t even watch Deadwood but I will devour every Timothy Olyphant interview about it because he’s just so game. He talks about his former costars who aren’t in the new movie coming to the set anyway.  “[Garret] Dillahunt snuck in. He played Drunk Number Two! He didn’t even get top drunk! [Laughs.] Talk about a reason to call your agent. ‘Hey, why am I not Drunk Number One?'”

Jessica Jones’ final season teaser has arrived. It drops on Netflix June 14.

Kim Kardashian: Attorney at Law?

Kim Kardashian Lawyer Vogue

-In her new Vogue cover storyKim Kardashian says that she’s studying to be a lawyer and plans to take her bar exam in 2020. I know everyone’s making fun of this but the woman is clearly intelligent enough, and she seems really passionate when talking about prison reform in the interview. She’s also eager to talk about Kanye West‘s mental health, saying “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them. For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.”

-Console your teens: despite all the rumours, Selena Gomez is not dating a guy Niall Horan from 1D.

-Oof, the hubris of actors. Lori Loughlin reportedly thought the DA was bluffing so she rejected their first plea and now faces additional, more serious  charges.

-Looks like the US media is dealing with the royal rumours with some distraction tactics. People’s new cover story is all about William and Harry growing apart, while Us Weekly is focusing on Kate‘s strong bond with the Queen.

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle continues to gather Hollywood heavyweights in her corner. Her latest supporter? Oprah! While promoting her Apple series on mental health that she’s partnering with Prince Harry on, Oprah said “I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart. I think it’s very unfair.”

-In a new op-ed for Time, Angelina Jolie calls for the support of Afghan women’s rights and more female representation in Afghan government delegations during peace talks.

Jeremy Renner is getting an Avengers spinoff show on Disney+. I’m not sure if anyone is actually clamoring for more about Hawkeye, but it sounds like it ill focus on the comic character Kate Bishop. The streaming service is rumoured to be launching in Nov.

Emma Stone fangirls over BTS in her SNL promos.

-This season of The Good Fight has been phenomenal, but it’s about to get better when Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald perform a Prince duet. I love everything about that clip.

Chris Hemsworth says a kind-hearted fan returned his photos from Miley and Liam‘s wedding after they were accidentally sent to her. The most adorable part of this story is that the pictures were on film, taken with an actual camera!

-I’m sort of excited for the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday. But I’m VERY excited for the return of Gay Of Thrones, the hilarious recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan.

-This Twitter thread on surreal celeb encounters is a delight. (Jackee Harry won with this response.)

-Foster the People and Imagine Dragons were beefing? Not gonna lie, I kind of thought they were the same band.

-I’m so glad that Special — the new Netflix show about a disabled gay man — is getting good reviews. I worry it’s going to be lost in the mix (especially because searching for “special” on Netflix results in a sea of comedy specials).

-I’m both happy and skeptical about Barry getting renewed for season 3 at HBO. Happy because season 2 is currently amazing; skeptical because the show went from asking “can this guy be redeemed?” to asking “when will this irredeemable guy get caught?” and I don’t know how long they can stretch that.

-We’re 100 days out from the new Lion King movie, so Disney dropped another trailer.

Gwendoline Christie Slays at the Game of Thrones Premiere

-The Game of Thrones premiere red carpet was fire, but Gwendoline Christie was the clear winner. It’s a smart move on her part — she’s coming off her first big thing and now is when she needs to create some buzz for future gigs.

-Also, Sophie Turner confirmed on the carpet that Maisie Williams will be her maid of honour when she marries Joe Jonas.

Tessa Thompson casually and repeatedly burning Chris Hemsworth in this birthday message to RDJ has me suddenly excited to see their Men in Black film.

-Sources say Britney Spears is doing “much better” after checking herself into a mental health facility to cope with her father’s illness.

-This is hilarious: Tom Holland still hasn’t read the script For Avengers: Endgame despite being done filming — and it’s because Marvel doesn’t trust him not to spoil it.

-So Jennifer Lopez is just going to keep ignoring those cheating rumours, huh?

Kanye West‘s kids took April Fool’s Day wayyyyy too far — they made him think Kim Kardashian had died. Kim told Elle: “[North] roped him into an April Fool’s prank yesterday that was ridiculous. She took ketchup into my bathroom, and she begged me to let her spread it on me, and on the bathroom, as if it was like a bad scary movie. Then she asked me to lie down. I thought she was just playing, maybe that she was going to say I was hurt. No. She taught Saint how to fake-cry—she showed him how to do it!—and then she told him to scream ‘Mommy’s dead!’ Kanye ran upstairs and he was like, ‘Kids, this is not funny. This is not a good prank.'”

-Out of all the things I could imagine Prince Harry coming out strongly against, Fortnite wasn’t one of them. He talked about banning the video game, saying “It’s created to addict. An addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.”

-Speaking of the royals, everyone’s keeping their eye on the UK press to see if they will start reporting on the Prince William cheating rumours now that the US press is. They continued to toe the line with the palace even though the Daily Beast reported on it, but now that it’s being splashed across supermarket tabloids, with they follow suit? That’s what happened once French outlets started covering Kate’s topless photos. We’ll see.

-I know it’s probably beyond a long shot, but it’s incredible to me that there’s talks of bringing Pitch back. Disney’s 20th TV is dangling a revival of Dan Fogelman‘s baseball drama to entice the This Is Us creator to remain in-house.

Celine Dion laughed off rumours of a relationship with her backup dancer: “Pepe is gay…The thing is that he’s my best friend and we dance together and he did so much for me and even just holding my hand…it’s something that I haven’t had for a long time…A hug from a 6′ 3″ man, it was wonderful…and people really thought there was a romance going on.”

-Is Emma Stone engaged? She’s been spotted sporting a diamond ring.

-Maybe when you’re heading into your court appearance you should just skip the autograph line, Lori Loughlin.  Just sayin’.

-Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath is denying reports he’s gone deaf, saying he was misquoted.

Kristen Bell has a warning about the new Veronica Mars miniseries. “This will be a controversial season. Let me just say that. I am excited for people to watch and I am also probably going to stay off the internet once it airs. There’s some stuff that happens that people will have strong feelings about.” I’m guessing Logan and Veronica break up, which isn’t doing much to build my excitement.

-I really like this story about the women behind Captain Marvel banding together to form a new production company, combining the clout they’ve earned to “exponentially lift up storytellers and less heard voices.”

Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen show off some surprising chemistry in this new Long Shot clip and I’m so confused.

Kristen Stewart pretends to be an author to cover for Laura Dern in the trailer for J.T. LeRoy. I saw this at TIFF and I thought it was good, not great, but the performances were fun.
