Emma Stone is Interviewed By Jennifer Lawrence for Elle

emma-stone-jennifer-lawrence-elle

-In her new Elle cover story, Emma Stone talks to BFF Jennifer Lawrence about social media (“I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them”), and panic attacks (“My mom always says that I was born with my nerves outside of my body. But I’m lucky for the anxiety, because it also makes me high-energy”). I’m glad this interview format is starting to get some flack (as Lainey says “is this becoming a trend? A sh-tty trend?”) Think of the best celebrity profiles you’ve read in the last couple of months, whether it was Taffy Brodesser-Akner on Gwyneth Paltrow, David Marchese on Quincy JonesE Alex Jung on Sandra Oh or Stephen Rodrick on Johnny Depp. There’s a level of distance and probing (be it rooted in admiration or skepticism) that you’re just not going to get from a BFF. As the Fug girls says, “having your friend interview you makes for a flabby and anemic profile at best.”

-In better celeb profiles, this GQ one on John Cho is great.  “You’re the only Asian not in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Did you miss the meeting?”

-Crazy Rich Asians is set to pocket $5.3 million in tonight’s screenings alone. Fingers crossed it makes back its $30M budget in the first 5 days!

-Meanwhile, here’s an explainer on the CRA actors you may not know much about (yet).

-Speaking of new rom coms coming this week that I can’t wait for, Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is getting great reviews! Vulture says its “witty and sweet” and calls it “summer’s best rom com”, Indiewire says it’s infused with “charm and empathy” and Pajiba calls it “fun and winsome…a total treat and a perfect pick for a night of Netflix and Girls Night in.”

Priyanka Chopra‘s engagement ring from Nick Jonas (that will never not be a weird thing to type) is on full display in a new Insta snap.

Taylor Swift spoke at her concert about the anniversary of her sexual assault Trial verdict: “I just wanted to say I’m sorry to anyone who ever wasn’t believed because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if somebody didn’t believe me when I said something had happened to me.”

-Outside of his court hearing, Liev Schrieber told reporters he did NOT assault a photographer. “I never touched him, I never touched his body with my body. I was pissed, but that was it. I have nothing else to say.”

Dane Cook hosted a  Q and A on Instagram and opened up about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, a 19-year-old singer who is 26 years younger than him. Have some bleach handy so you can scrub your brain clean after reading about it.

Chris Pratt is still talking about James Gunn being fired: “We all love James …but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy”. You know what’s nuts? Gunn seemed to instantly realize his mistake and was like “yup, i screwed up and I’m outtie.” It’s the stars of GoG that won’t let it go.

-In a new interview, Glenn Close commented on Scarlett Johansson‘s trans casting controversy: “People who are producing and directing properties like that need to go out of their way to get trans actors jobs. But they also should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”

-Wondering when your fave TV show returns this fall? I got ya.

-I don’t think anyone was really excited for Colin Jost and Michael Che to host the Emmys, but their latest interview really cemented it. Good job, guys!

-In a wide-ranging interview, Jim Carrey revealed he doesn’t have access to his own Twitter account and has at least three people (“just pals”) sign off on every post: “When you’re in my position, it’s a really smart thing to have a buffer.” This system needs to be adopted by every celebrity, STAT!

-This illustrated ode to The Americans’ wigs is fire.

-A week after splitting from Cheryl Cole, Liam Payne was photographed looking cozy with a model.

Bella Thorne‘s first foray into makeup is not going very smoothly. She’s shilling ridiculously expensive, tiny eyeshadow palettes that may or may not rip off a black-owned beauty brand.

-I think I enjoy reading about HBO’s Sharp Objects more than I enjoy actually watching it. This article on its editing is great, as is this weekly updated piece on all the hidden words in the show.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays a stand-up with a complicated past in the All About Nina trailer.

-Damn. Chris Hardwick  just got #MeToo’d and this one is hitting me hard. The Nerdist was the very first podcast I ever listened to and although his earnestness was slightly grating, I always thought he sounded like a good dude. Of course, my feelings don’t matter; Chloe Dystra’s does. Good on her for speaking up. Even though she never explicitly names him, it’s clear who she’s talking about and her story is incredibly disturbing. I’m so over toxic fanboys who were nerdy/bullied in high school and now feel like they’re owed something. They’re really not.

-Meanwhile, here is the Nerdist podcast in which Chloe and Chris talk about the surgery she references in her essay. It’s … not good. Start around the 1 hour, 20 min mark.

-It’ll be interesting to see what happens now. He’s been a trending topic all morning so the story keeps getting wider, but he’s scheduled to be a big part of Comic Con, including moderating the Doctor Who panel. He also has a brand new show debuting on Sunday on AMC.

-According to Gisele Bundchen‘s new Vogue cover storyTom Brady made up quite an elaborate story about her apartment flooding before asking her to marry him.

Jake Johnson is looking GOOD in GQ.

-I’m busy this weekend and Nicole is travelling for the next two, so we’ve promised not to watch the new romcom Set It Up (which stars Taye Diggs and Lucy Liu, and drops today on Netflix) until we’re together but the reviews are so good and it’s going to be SO HARD.

Chris Pratt played Box of Lies and of course, he destroyed Jimmy Fallon.

-Meanwhile, Pratt isn’t saying no to a Parks and Recs reunion.

Amy Poehler was named one of the 40 most powerful people in comedy and she epically derailed her Q&A to talk about real issues.

-Split rumors are nothing new for Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, but she wants to make one thing clear: “At the end of the day, that’s a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”

-Star Trek: Discovery has fired showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, and Alex Kurtzman will take over season two. Harberts and Berg reportedly ran into budget woes and became increasingly verbally abusive to the Discovery writing staff, according to the THR story.

-Speaking of network shakeups, CBS has retained outside counsel to investigate NCIS: New Orleans’ writer-producer Brad Kern, who just got a new 2-year deal. He’ll continue to work on the show during the inquiry, which follows two CBS HR investigations of him. Insiders are reportedly angry that he’s remaining involved in the hit drama despite a new inquiry from outside counsel over claims of sexual harassment and racially-charged comments.

-I can’t wait to hear what Judith Light is going to say about Jeffrey Tambor once she’s allowed.

-I thought Tag might be a fun, mindless movie for the summer but the reviews are really not great.

-This is a good point about Brie Larson. Everyone I know who saw Unicorn Store at TIFF last year adored it.

-I would like Zazie Beetz to be in every magazine this summer. Is that possible?

-I like to read lots of light fluffy romcoms during the summer, and I’ve noticed some super weird stuff going on in my Kindle. This article on book stuffing in the romance genre was illuminating.

-This is exactly what I’ve been thinking too whenever I see someone praising Nas’ new album.

-I adore Ken Marino, but I don’t know about this dog movie he’s directing…

chris-pratt-entertainment-weekly

Chris Pratt is on the cover of EW to promote Jurassica World: Fallen Kingdom and in the interview, he talks for the first time about his split from Anna Faris. “Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”

-Meanwhile, the final trailer for  Fallen Kingdom has arrived. It looks very silly.

The Weeknd is “casually datingChantel Jeffries — who happens to be Justin Bieber‘s ex. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Eva Longoria got a star on the Walk of Fame and so many famous ladies showed up, including Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Munn, Holly Peete, as well as her Desperate Housewives costars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman.

Claire Danes revealed that she’s expecting baby No. 2 with Hugh Dancy. “I’m seriously preggo. I’m deep into my second trimester.”

-She also says that Homeland is going to end with season 8. (Meanwhile, Showtime says it has not made a decision yet, but since actors deals are up if it were to continue, it would likely be with a new cast. Just let it go, guys.)

-There was a lot of talk when the I Feel Pretty trailer first landed, with people complaining that Amy Schumer was too pretty to play an “ugly duckling” or that the movie suggests you have to be beautiful to feel happy. Fortunately, every review I’ve read seems to indicate that the movie has the opposite message, and it’s biggest target is the ugly side of the beauty industry.

-Also, Schumer refused to be retouched in the footage. “I said, ‘Do not retouch me in this movie. Do not retouch anything.’ You see my cellulite. You see my, my rolls, whatever.”

-I love Adam Pally. I love him even more after he was escorted off the stage for trashing the awards show he was presenting at.

-Netflix has ordered a comedy series starring Idris Elba as a DJ called Turn Up Charlie. He’s on such a comedy kick lately. It’s weird.

-This video of Kevin Hart taking Tiffany Haddish rollerblading is great. But before, she takes him to get discount pregnancy ultrasounds.

-People Magazine’s annual issue evolved from the “50 Most Beautiful” to “the Most Beautiful Woman” and now it’s “The Beautiful Issue.” Pink and her kids made this year’s cover.

-Oh great. Here comes all the “he’s ready for a comeback” articles. This week, we got ones about Louis CK, Mario Batali and Matt Lauer.

-This thread on who will survive Game of Thrones is perfect.

-Can Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak just get married already?

-I gave up on The Santa Clarita Diet really early, but my goodness it’s impressive how Timothy Olyphant continues to be the perfect late night guest.

-Glow is returning to Netflix June 29 — which they announced with this perfect video of the cast dancing to “Maniac.
