Salma Hayek’s Owl Puked on Harry Styles

Salma Hayek says her pet owl once vomited a ‘ball of rat hair’ on Harry Styles. He was “super cool” about it.

-An American Gigolo reboot series has been ordered by Showtime starring Jon Bernthal. Oh, yes please!

Zoë Kravitz will direct and Channing Tatum will star in a new thriller called Pussy Island. In the interview about the movie, their exchange about Crocs is hilarious: “When someone can just come out and tell me I should not be wearing Crocs, and is so adamant about it, she completely convinced me and I never wear Crocs anymore,” Tatum said. “I was just trying to be a good friend, Chan,” she said. “I get it, but I totally loved Crocs for a hot second, and in one hang she was like, you can’t ever do that again. And I said, ‘OK, fine.’

Harvey Weinstein will be extradited to Los Angeles to stand trial for sex crime charges.

-So Kevin Hart is blaming “cancel culture” for making him feel censored. “You’re thinking that things you say will come back and bite you on the ass. I can’t be the comic today that I was when I got into this.” I guess that’s one way to make headlines when you have a new project coming out this week…

-Just after Chrissy Teigen dipped her toe back into the public arena following her bullying controversy, Project Runway contestant Michael Costello claimed she DM’d him messages like “racist people like you deserve to suffer and die.”

-There’s rumours that Brad Pitt is dating Lykke Li. I’m into it.

-On the first Late Show back with a full audience, Jon Stewart went ALL IN on the conspiracy theory that covid was leaked by a Wuhan lab (even when Colbert seemed to be trying to reign him in). Which may very well turn out to be true, but whew, this came off a bit anti-science.

-Cruel Summer (which I really liked) has been renewed for a second season. I had no idea that it’s produced by Jessica Biel.

Lin-Manuel Miranda directs and Andrew Garfield stars in the Netflix film adaptation of the late Jonathan Larson‘s autobiographical musical Tick Tick Boom. It’s about the making of Rent so I’m allllll in.

Bennifer’s Cozy Dinner

-Either Jennifer Lopez is flashing a super problematic symbol (highly unlikely), she’s giving the paps the ok (slightly more likely) or she’s just grabbing his shoulder awkwardly (most likely) in these pics of her and Ben Affleck packing on the PDA at dinner in Malibu.

-Speaking of reunited couples, Angelina Jolie was spotted leaving ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s house.

Chrissy Teigen has returned to the public eye sooner than I expected, but this apology she posted is very good. “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

Jessica Biel appeared on Dax Shepard‘s podcast and talked about welcoming her “secret COVID baby” with Justin Timberlake. “It wasn’t like it was supposed to be a secret. It was just COVID happened, and then I went to Montana with my family and never left.”

-The team behind Harley Quinn says DC asked them to remove a scene from Season 3 in which Batman goes down on Catwoman, saying “Heroes don’t do that.”

-There was a Scrubs reunion on Celebrity Family Feud.

-This deep dive into Meghan Markle hate accounts is super disturbing.

-Girls5eva has been renewed for season 2. I really enjoyed the first season. It’s joke density reminded me of 30 Rock (which makes sense, since it’s also produced by Tina Fey).

-Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is releasing a three-issue comic book about a woman who gets superpowers when she’s on her period. (Weirdly, one of the characters on the excellent new TV show We Are Lady Parts has a subplot about writing a similar comic.)

Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks made their official public debut at the Gold Dinner 2021 in Australia.

-Black Widow tickets are actually on sale. This film might finally see the light of day after all!

-Also, finally happening: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton‘s wedding. She just had her bridal shower. She’s also been spotted wearing a new ring so maybe the ceremony has already happened?

-There’s a lot of talk about how In the Heights failed to unseat A Quiet Place II from the top of the box office, but I’m not sure that was ever a realistic expectation.

-Here’s our first look at Netflix’s Persuasion and I really don’t know how we’re supposed to be rooting for Cosmo Jarvis‘ Captain Wentworth when Henry Golding‘s Mr. Elliot is right there.

-Here’s the first trailer for the new season of The Morning Show. At least they let Reese Witherspoon ditch her terrible wig.

Shailene Woodley Is On a Mission

Shailene-Woodley Shape

-In a new interview with Shape, the usually private Shailene Woodley opens up about starting a romance during the pandemic with NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers (“We jumped in headfirst and got some of the sticky bits out of the way early”) and her eco-activism (“I don’t want to save the ocean because my mind says it’s the right thing to do. I want to save the ocean because I can feel that she’s suffering. I can feel that turtle drowning from the plastic in its belly. I can feel the temperatures rising on the algae that is killing other species”).

-It’s possible that the palace staff found out that Meghan Markle gave birth the same time as the rest of the world this weekend.

Jennifer Lopez was reportedly recently seen “scouting out new schools” in Los Angeles, where Ben Affleck lives.

-Absence makes the heart grow fonder: Minka Kelly and Trevor Noah are back on.

Chrissy Teigen dropped out of her surprise role in Netflix’s Never Have I Ever following those bullying claims.

Ellie Kemper apologized for her participation in a controversial pageant when she was a teen. “I was not aware of the history at the time, but ignorance is no excuse. I was old enough to have educated myself before getting involved.”

-This is an interesting piece on celebrities demanding pre-sex NDAs.

-Yay! Netflix has renewed Shadow & Bone for a second season, and had the cast announce it. Here’s hoping for 90% more Crows storylines.

-Here’s a great interview with Laverne Cox on the current wave of anti-trans legislation, what “allies” need to know, and the unique pressure that comes with being tokenized throughout one’s career.

Danny Masterson’s trial on multiple rape charges looks likely to start in November, and he had to give up his passport today.

Michaela Coel won big at the BAFTA TV Awards and dedicated her win to I May Destroy You’s intimacy coordinator, which must be a first.

Simu Liu’s co-star Jean Yoon echoed his complaints about Kim’s Convenience in a Twitter thread, saying “the lack of Asian female, especially Korean writers in the writers room of Kims made my life VERY DIFFICULT & the experience of working on the show painful.”

Tom Hiddleston was so invested in shooting the new Loki series (which drops this week), he gave the cast and crew lectures on the character’s background.

-I guess the Cruella streaming numbers were good. Disney is already in early development on a sequel, with director Craig Gillespie and screenwriter Tony McNamara both expected to return.

Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan are attached to star in She Said, a new movie about the New York Times sexual harassment investigation against Harvey Weinstein that kicked off the #MeToo movement.

Tom Hanks penned an essay for the NYT about the lack of education around the Tulsa massacre.

-I’m really intrigued by Kevin Can F**k Himself, AMC’s new show starring Schitt’s Creek’s Annie Murphy that tells the story of a family sitcom from the wife’s perspective.

Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Carla Gugino, Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh, and Chloe Coleman kick ass in the Gunpowder Milkshake trailer.
