Beyonce Takes Questions from Fans

Beyonce-Elle-January-Cover

Beyonce did an interview! Kinda! She answered questions in Elle that were sent in via email and social media. And she almost certainly answered them via email. Ok, so not really an interview at all then but still! Beyonce speaks! The topics range from everything from shopping at Target to giving to charities to surviving miscarriages.

-People are really upset that Lizzo showed off her butt at the Lakers game with a thong dress. I mean, it got her name trending just as she was dropping a new video so good on her?

Chrissy Teigen did an impromptu Twitter Q&A session and she was remarkably candid about celeb life, opening up about hired help, free clothing, secret social accounts, paparazzi and more.

Daisy Ridley is getting a lot of (justified) flack for her obliviousness and confusion when an interviewer asked her about her privilege.

-The Golden Globes are always dumb but this morning’s nominations were especially dumb. No women were nominated for best director or screenplay. On the TV side, they somehow loved The Morning Show and Catch-22 but shut out Watchmen, Veep, Barry, When They See Us and Schitt’s Creek. A huge surprise was Cats getting shut out of the major categories even though the HFPA screened it — and it seemed like the perfect film for the Golden Globes.

-I watched A Marriage Story and while I refuse to get sucked into the ‘whose side was it on?’ conversation, I can wholeheartedly say that my favourite bit was this Merritt Wever scene: part 1, part 2.

Miley Cyrus, who’s in the middle of getting a divorce from Liam Hemsworth, got a new tattoo that says “Freedom.”

-God bless Pajiba for reminding us all of the time Adrien Brody bought a castle for Elsa Pataky, then they did a 35-page spread exclusive for Hello! about it, then she dumped him for Chris Hemsworth.

-The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is asking the filmmakers behind Richard Jewell to release a statement acknowledging it took dramatic license when it portrayed their journalist Kathy Scruggs as trading sex for scoops. I’m actually surprised that Olivia Wilde, who plays the late Scruggs, has been defending the movie’s use of this tired, terrible trope, seeing as she’s the daughter of two journalists.

-Say what you will about Ryan Reynolds (and ohh boy, I have) but he sure knows how to capitalize on a social media trend. His gin company hired the Peloton commercial wife for their latest ad.

-Meanwhile, Ryan is stuck in a video game in the first trailer for Free Guy.

-The Wonder Woman 1984 trailer has arrived and it’s glorious.

Nicole Kidman Reflects on Family and Fame

Nicole Kidman Tatler Bombshell

Nicole Kidman is kicking off the Bombshell promo tour with her Tatler cover story, in which she talks about the death of her father (“My three-year-old said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, y’know, you have to be OK. Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’’t going to fall apart. Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally”).

Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson that is narrated by a talking glove. I hate all of those words.

-In a nice change of pace, Tom Hanks read some nice tweets.

Sia went to Walmart and TJ Maxx yesterday and paid everyone’s bills, telling people her name was Cici and she’d recently won the lottery.

John Boyega remains a delight.

Seth Meyers had his parents and brother on the show and they seem wonderfully well-adjusted and normal.

Beck has distanced himself from Scientology, saying “My father has been a Scientologist for a long time. But I’ve pretty much just focused on my music and my work for most of my life, and tended to do my own thing.” Leah Remini, however, is not buying it: “You can’t be married to a Scientology family such as the Ribisi family and not be fully on board. To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”

Sandra Bullock was at Jennifer Aniston’s Friendsgiving, as was Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Justin Theroux.

Chrissy Teigen turned John Legend’s ‘Sexiest Man’ People cover into pajamas for everyone to wear at Thanksgiving and I think I’m in love with her.

Dakota Johnson continues to be the most awkward person ever in interviews.

-Here’s video of Jennifer Garner losing her poo when Julie Andrews called her.

-French director Luc Besson could be hit with a 10-month suspended prison sentence — and not for the reasons you’d think. He allegedly fired his assistant illegally when she was on medical leave.

-It’s been a rough week in K-pop. Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon have been sentenced to prison terms on charges of sexual assault.

-Another week, another celeb: Jane Fonda recruited Paul Scheer for today’s “Fire Drill Friday” protests.

-It’s Black Friday or, as gossip hounds know it, CDAN blind item reveal day.

-The E.T. short is cute. Yes, it’s a commercial, but it’s still cute.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‬ Talk Family and Politics

Chrissy Teigen John Legend

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‬ cover the latest issue of Vanity Fair, in which they talk about getting together (“It got serious pretty quickly. She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny”) and why they’re supporting Elizabeth Warren (“She’s the best candidate running today and she comes at it with joy and with sincerity and with a wealth of knowledge and experience”).

-Oof, the video of Ben Affleck stumbling out of a Halloween party this weekend is a hard watch. He was spotted outside Jennifer Garner’s house yesterday, where he told paps “It was a slip but I’m not going to let it derail me.”

-Speaking of celebs who seem like they might need help, Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki was arrested in Austin late Saturday night and is reportedly facing two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication after he allegedly struck both a bartender and the general manager of a club in the face. Terrible timing, especially since he just landed a new show.

-Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, but Gabrielle Union has already won it this year.

-Apple+ lifted the embargo on the reviews of their new TV shows, and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon‘s Morning Show is not getting good reviews. Critics only saw the first three episodes so far, but do not seem impressed. Surprisingly, the one people seem to like most is Hailee Steinfeld’s Dickinson.

James McAvoy and production assistant Lisa Liberati (who he started dating in 2017 — two months after splitting from his wife of 11 years) are reportedly married.

-I guess I wasn’t the only one this morning who was surprised/revolted to learn that they’re still subscribed to Louis C.K.’s newsletter. I have never hit an unsub link faster.

-Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff appeared at the Austin Film Festival this weekend, and someone live-tweeted their panel answers — a thread which quickly went viral because their admissions of incompetence were jaw-droppingly candid. They acknowledged that they made “basic writing mistakes” on the pilot, had no idea how to work with costume designers, didn’t feel the need to delve into the books to learn about the characters, and called the whole process an “expensive film school.” Talented female and POC writers are out there sweating in the trenches for their big break, but these two unqualified dolts were given $6 million an episode to learn on the job. And they’re not too embarrassed to openly talk about it! (I mean, why should they be? They landed Star Wars trilogy despite of it.) White dudes will always fail up…

-In the bossiest boss move, Jane Fonda accepted her BAFTA award while being arrested!

-Netflix might be planning to roll out a feature that allows users to binge at higher speeds, which might be the worst move ever. Tighten up your damn shows through writing and editing, not with fast-forwarding. (Aaron Paul also has strong feelings about this.)

-I love that Revenge costars Emily Vancamp and Josh Bowman still going strong eight years later.

Trent Reznor addressed the Nine Inch Nails sample in “Old Time Road” — and his response is a pretty damn awesome example of lifting up smaller artists: “I said [to my manager], ‘Look, I’m fine with it. I get how stuff goes. They’re not saying they didn’t sample it. Just work it out, but don’t be a roadblock to this.’…Those guys should be the ones the spotlight is on. It was flattering, and I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but I don’t feel like it’s my place to shine a light on me for that.”

This Paul Rudd video is amazing because: 1) splitting an apple with your bare hands is a killer party trick, and 2) I learned that his new Netflix show costars the amazing actress from Hulu’s This Way Up.

-The CW is in a spinoff frenzy right now. The latest is a new Superman & Lois Lane series from Greg Berlanti, following their life as parents. I’m not mad about it. Tyler Hoechlin was so, so good in the crossover last year, and I liked what little we saw of Elizabeth Tulloch‘s Lois.

-There’s a new sneak trailer for Ford v Ferrari, starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale.
