Megan Fox Stars in Machine Gun Kelly’s Video

Megan Fox ramps up rumours that she’s dating Machine Gun Kelly by cozying up to him in his new music video.

Zack Snyder will release his cut of Justice League on HBO Max — but not until next year. The news also confirms that the Snyder cut didn’t actually exist; they’re going to have to spend $20+ million on post-production. Which is HILARIOUS.

-The Ruby Rose/Batwoman saga continues to unfold. A source tells TV Line her quitting the show “wasn’t 100-percent her decision. It was a breakup. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.” Rob Salem, who used to be the TV critic for the Toronto Star, has an even more pointed take, tweeting: “Apparently, she was actually fired. Rumor has it she was generally loathed on set. “Sociopathic narcissist” was the phrase being bandied about. They put a happy face on it, but from what I hear, nobody will be sorry to see her go.”

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz is already publicly petitioning for the role. Even though she’s played another character in the Arrowverse, I’d love for Bex Taylor-Klaus to have a shot.

-Meanwhile, The Flash cast did a Stars In the House Zoom reunion for charity last night, which is lovely but they did it at 8pm ET — their old timeslot and at the exact same time Stargirl was debuting on their network. The CW is filled with messiness, y’all.

-The Smash cast will reunite tonight to perform Bombshell in concert. The more that these cast reunions for charity take place every day, the more untenable the upcoming Friends reunion seems. Getting paid $3 million each to do what casts are now doing all the time for free to support good causes is an increasingly bad look.

Ryan Seacrest has blamed exhaustion and returned to work after this clip made people think he was having a stroke during American Idol.

-Amazing human being Sia confirmed she adopted two teenage sons who were aging out of foster care system.

Lorde says she’s been recording new music with Jack Antonoff and “the work is so fucking good, my friend.”

-This thread about the types of songs in Disney animated movies is kind of incredible.

-British Vogue got Kate Moss to demonstrate cooking a roast chicken (clearly shot pre-pandemic). Her comment at the end slays: “What happened to just being able to do a cover and not having to do any of this?”

-The world does not deserve Taika Waititi.

-I love this article on how it would be awesome if Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat are actually dating: “Yes, Shawkat is young and beautiful, but she isn’t exactly the type of woman we’ve come to expect in the arms of aging actors in the midst of their midlife crises. She’s in her 30s; she’s Iraqi American; she’s not tall or ultra-skinny or blonde; she’s queer; she’s cool.”

-Spotify has fought against paying musicians what they deserve for years, but they ponied up $100 million for an exclusivity deal for Joe Rogan‘s podcast.

Alison Roman is “on temporary leave” as a food columnist for the New York Times after she made judgmental comments about fellow lifestyle influencers Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo. Teigen is not happy with the news, saying “it just sucks in every way.”

Julia Roberts, Hugh Jackman, and more celebs are handing over their social profiles to COVID-19 experts, which I love.

-This is a really extensive, interesting look at the costly efforts to restart film and TV production, including safety precautions, scheduling delays, extra VFX, and much more. Not only are the sky-high costs going to get higher, expect to see fewer location shoots, less guest stars and less crowd scenes with background extras. Zoe Kravitz also raises a good point about how COVID-19 will affect hair, makeup and wardrobe processes on a big film like Batman: “You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long. I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own. I was probably touched more than any job, just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that.”

Clay is struggling to keep it together in the trailer for the final season of 13 Reasons Why.

Robert Pattinson’s Quarantine Pasta Disaster

-The best (only?) thing to read today is Robert Pattinson‘s new GQ cover story (complete with some surprisingly good self-portraits). He talks about not training during isolation (“I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the ’70s. Even James Dean—he wasn’t exactly ripped”), and his move to more mainstream movies like Batman (“The problem which I was finding was, however much I loved the movies I was doing, no one sees them. And so it’s kind of this frightening thing, ’cause I don’t know how viable this is for a career. I don’t know how many people there actually are in the industry who are willing to back you without any commercial viability whatsoever”). But the very best part of the article is when he tries to demonstrate how to cook his weirdo signature pasta dish — and ends up setting his microwave on fire.

Stanley Tucci confirmed Chris Evans‘ tweet about him making martinis at the end of most days while shooting the first Captain America movie. “I like to have a portable cocktail set that I bring to set. And at the end of the day, if it’s an appropriate time, I make martinis for whoever would like to join me. It’s nice. It’s civilized.”

-In the latest episode of his Facebook Watch series, we learn that Justin Bieber thinks it’s funny to surprise wife Hailey with random Nerf gun attacks during isolation. No jury would convict her.

-He also said that she pops his pimples for him.

Bryan Adams posted some racist drivel yesterday about his concert being cancelled, saying “Tonight was supposed to be the beginning of a tenancy of gigs at the @royalalberthall, but thanks to some fucking bat eating, wet market animal selling, virus making greedy bastards, the whole world is now on hold.” After being thoroughly dragged for it, he didn’t delete the post but he did offer an apology, posting “Apologies to any and all that took offence to my posting yesterday. No excuse, I just wanted to have a rant about the horrible animal cruelty in these wet-markets being the possible source of the virus, and promote veganism. I have love for all people and my thoughts are with everyone dealing with this pandemic around the world.” Canada will never cancel him, no matter what he does, sadly.

-It’s been such a big week for Center Stage news! A new TV adaptation has been ordered from Jennifer Kaytin Robinson (who created Sweet/Vicious and Someone Great).

-This oral history of Mad Max: Fury Road is excellent. Riley Keough met her husband on the set!

-Disney announced that the live recording of the Broadway production of Hamilton, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda and the original cast, will hit Disney+ on July 3. This was originally set for October 2021 as a theatrical release so this is quite a change. It’ll be interesting to see if the curse words get muted for Disney+.

-It’s kind of weird that the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special dropped today on Netflix and it doesn’t seem like there was any buzz about it.

-I’m sure she hired a PR firm for this, but Alison Roman’s apology is one of the best I’ve ever seen.  She acknowledges her white privilege, the cultural appropriation in the food world, and how no one should be expected to accept her apology or help her improve.

Chrissy Teigen posted a thread about Roman’s response, saying she wants to put it behind them.

-This is a good piece on how Guy Fieri is the last unproblematic food person. I love this Shane Torres quote: “He goes around the country to small businesses and gives them free advertising on a national platform on a weekly basis, but because his hair looks like he was electrocuted while drinking Mountain Dew, people act like we need to saw his head off and put it on the internet.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg is blaming the pandemic for Quibi’s rough start (even though every other entertainment streaming service is reporting a search in usage/revenue.) In a new NYT interview, he gets “momentarily steamed” when the topic of TikTok’s growing success is raised. “That’s like comparing apples to submarines.”

-Ink Master star Daniel Silva has been arrested for the drunk driving crash that killed YouTuber Corey La Barrie, who was in the passenger seat. Authorities allege that Silva had to be stopped from leaving the crash site by witnesses.

-Solstice Studios moved up the release of the Russell Crowe thriller Unhinged from September to July 1, hoping it’ll be the first new Hollywood release as theaters reopen. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Tina Fey hosted a virtual telethon called Rise Up New York and couldn’t hold back her emotions when she learned about the event’s monumental success – they raised $115M.

Ethan Hawke plays the controversial abolitionist John Brown in the seven-episode Showtime series The Good Lord Bird, based on the bestselling novel by James McBride.

Ana de Armas Is In Deep

Ana de Armas is on the cover of Vogue Spain, in which her rumoured boyfriend Ben Affleck gushes about her talent. “The first time we read the scenes together, it became pretty clear she was going to do something exceptional with a very complex role,” he says of their work on upcoming thriller Deep Water.

-Meanwhile, she posted the photos that Ben took of her on the beach. Are they supposed to be this blurry?

Amanda Bynes has reunited with her fiancé and announced that they’re expecting a baby.

Chrissy Teigen is defending Vanessa Hudgens after her “dumb” coronavirus, tweeting “Sometimes people, especially famous people, are gonna say really stupid s–t. & so are you. And they, and u, will learn from it & hopefully their history says they’re good. It’s Ok. And at the same time, wow they really had a dumb f—– moment. But u don’t have [to] ruin their lives.”

Kevin Bacon‘s “6 degrees” posts to encourage social distancing is very good.

-I’m loving all the group chats TV casts seem to be having during social distancing. The Superstore cast had their wrap dinner via FaceTime, while the Criminal Minds cast had a virtual hangout.

-A bored Seth Rogen got stoned, watched Cats, freaked out — and live-tweeted the whole thing.

-People are going stir-crazy, which probably led to Oprah‘s name trending due to a crazy and untrue rumour about her being arrested in a child sex ring.

Jennifer Ehle posted video of her reading Pride & Prejudice and it’s all I’ve ever wanted.

Robert Pattinson wants to remind you that Twilight was weird as f*ck. “Even before Twilight, I was doing weird stuff. And to be honest, I always thought Twilight was pretty weird. It’s really just the kind of marketing that made it mainstream. If you look at any interview I did, I would be pushing the chewing through placenta, any element which I could make gross, like I’d push and push and push it to the front. But you know you can’t compete with one guy against the whole marketing department going, ‘It’s a romantic odyssey, it’s beautiful.’ It’s like, ‘No, it’s disgusting [laughs].'”

-One of my very favourite things is the Austin 100, NPR’s annual streaming list of 100 songs you should check out from artists playing SXSW. Now that the fest is cancelled, it’s even more important to give these bands the lift they’re losing out on.

-Little Fires Everywhere dropped its first three episodes on Hulu early! Joshua Jackson announced the news in a super cute photo.

-Also, Jodie Turner-Smith tweeted “objectifying my husband on the internet is my kink and i thought you guys knew this by now” and I love her so much.

Brandon Routh continues to use his exit interviews to make it known that he was NOT happy about leaving Legends of Tomorrow.

-Speaking of Legends cast members, here’s a short film Caity Lotz wrote and directed.

-Black Widow is the latest big movie to get postponed.
