Ellen Page Uses Her Late Night Appearance To Call Out Mike Pence’s Homophobia

Ellen Page was articulate and passionate last night on the Colbert Show, where she asked viewers to “connect the dots” between homophobic rhetoric and physical violence. “I’m lucky to have this time and this privilege to say this. This needs to f*cking stop.” Also, good on Stephen Colbert for just stepping back and letting her talk.

-Meanwhile, Empire star Jussie Smollett has given his first statement since being attacked: “My body is strong but my soul is stronger.”

Gisele Bundchen opened up on her past relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio: “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”

Adam Levine canceled the press conference before the Super Bowl, because holding one would have required Maroon 5 to answer uncomfortable questions. He then gave a wishy-washy defense of his involvement: “No one thought about it more than I did. No one put more thought and love into this than I did…I spoke to many people; most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.” Well, as long as he listened to HIMSELF, we’re all good, I guess.

Reese Witherspoon‘s newest book recommendation is Jasmine Guillory‘s The Proposal, which I adored.

Kit Harington let it slip to his wife Rose Leslie how Game of Thrones ends — and says she stopped talking to him “for days.” Spoiler repercussions are real, yo.

-Google Assistant continues with the Home Alone trend, this time with Joe Pesci.

-Netflix’s Russian Doll (starring Natasha Lyonne and exec produced by Amy Poehler) hits Netflix today and it’s been a while since I’ve seen critics so universally embrace a new show. Variety says it’s “spiky, funny, devastating and downright bizzare,” Rolling Stone calls Lyonne a “revelation,”  Vox calls it terrific and twisted, AV Club says it’s more rewarding than any puzzle-box show, Vulture calls it a “brilliant, surreal show about women in power,” The Hollywood Reporter says it starts good, then gets better, and The New York  Times says the main character describes herself as “if Andrew Dice Clay and the little girl from Brave made a baby.”

Olivia Wilde takes down abusers in the trailer for A Vigilante.

-Hobbs & Shaw are an ass-kicking odd couple in the Fast & Furious spin-off’s first ridiculous but also kinda great trailer.

Tracee Ellis Ross Happy To Be “45, Single and Childless”

Tracee Ellis Ross Says She Is ‘Happily Single’ At 45

-In her InStyle cover story, Tracee Ellis Ross says she cool with her single status. “It’s sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless. [I’m] not at home crying about it.” Bless.  Also, she really loves that colour and silhouette, no? She wore something similar to the MET Gala. And the Emmys.

Christina Aguilera talks about that infamous VMAs moment where she and Madonna kissed. “It was weird. And you know why they cut away for it? They cut away to get Justin [Timberlake’s] reaction. It was a ‘Justin’s reaction’ shot.”

Brad Pitt smiled at someone he was sitting near so clearly everyone thinks they’re dating.

-I don’t know why Jon Hamm is doing Canadian commercials, but I very much appreciate the way he says “poutine.”

Nicki Minaj now has merch based on her fight with Cardi B, which is both trashy and genius.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finally finalized their divorce. If she waited for him to get healthy, that makes her a solid human being.

Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert say they have reached out to Roseanne Barr but didn’t hear back.

Mindy Kaling Covers Shape

Mindy Kaling baby weight Shape Magazine

-I love that Mindy Kaling is Shape’s latest cover model — which isn’t a typical choice for them. I skimmed over the stuff about losing the baby weight, but she has some cute nuggets about motherhood: “What’s great for me is that my doctor told me that incessant chatter is good for a baby, and I’ve lived my whole life waiting to have a captive audience. So, I spend the days narrating to her. I’m constantly doing voice-over for her, as I did in The Mindy Project. Honestly, I feel like her first words are going to be, ‘Just stop. Please!'”

Dylan Sprouse is out here coming for Jared Leto, proving once again that he’s the superior Sprouse brother. And Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took it further, tweeting “he starts at 18 on the internet?” Oh SHIT!

-Lethal Weapon producers reportedly approached  Karl Urban and Johnny Knoxville (both passed) before turning to Seann William Scott, who was originally offered and passed on the role two years ago.

Thandie Newton won the Cannes Solo premiere red carpet in this custom Vivienne Westwood dress that featured  black characters in the Star Wars universe — modeled from photos from her personal collection of action figures.

-Fashion drama is the best drama. Amal Clooney reportedly made Tom Ford mad by not wearing his dress at the MET gala arrivals — but opting to wear it later that night, which means that another A-lister won’t get to debut it at a future red carpet event.

-Those rumours about Donald Glover getting his own Lando movie are not true…yet.

-This Instagram story of Fergie having to take the subway because of a rainstorm is hilarious because it’s presented like she’s the first person who’s ever braved public transit.

-I gotta say, I did not expect so many Mulroney kids to be in the royal wedding party.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool took over Stephen Colbert’s monologue last night.

-This “bad fan” thread between TV critics on The Americans really captured what I am feeling. I know it’s bad to *want* them to end the show with Elizabeth and Phillip getting away with it, but that’s where I am.

CBS responded to Pauley Perrette’s tweets claiming she was physically assaulted while on NCIS: “Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”

-The latest trailer for Mission Impossible: Fallout shows off an insane skydiving stunt.

-This trailer for Destination Wedding, which basically consists of Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves snarking at each other in Paso Robles wine country, looks like the perfect movie and I will not be convinced otherwise!
