Angelina Jolie Talks Moving On

angelina-jolie-harpers-bazaar

Angelina Jolie is in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar and says she’s planning on moving to Africa. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18. Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”

Emma Watson calls herself “self-partnered” instead of “single,” which sounds kinda dirty and I love it.

-Talking to Howard Stern, Kristen Stewart says she would’ve married Robert Pattinson: “If he proposed, you would’ve gotten married. I’m not a super duper traditionalist, but at the same time…every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

Martin Scorcese wrote a NYT piece on superhero movies and film Twitter has been fighting about it all day. I actually agree with a lot of what he says about the changing business of making movies — media consolidation IS making it harder for smaller and/or diverse films to get theatrical releases. It’s all very similar to Soderbergh’s State of Cinema speech. But he undercuts his argument by taking unnecessary swipes at superhero movies, wading into a tired and snobbish ‘art vs. commerce’ debate. If he stuck to the business/industry side of things, and pointed out how scary Disney is becoming, I bet it would be more widely embraced. I think this thread nails it.

Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin in The Batman, with Andy Serkis up to play Alfred.

Footage surfaced of ABC’s Amy Robach talking about how she had the Epstein story three years ago, but the lawyers killed it. “The palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton — we had everything.” She later said “I was caught in a private moment of frustration.”

-Welp. Netflix is offering a “skip” button for Trump jokes in the new Seth Meyers comedy special.

Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are very charming in a new clip from Little Women.

Matt Damon told Conan O’Brien about the time Ben Affleck rescued him from a fight when they were young. “Little five-foot-two Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere. I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Two Popes, starring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins. People LOVED this at TIFF.

-We have a new trailer for Netflix’s new anthology series based on the songs of Dolly Parton.

-Here’s the new new Bad Boys For Life trailer, reuniting Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

Stars Shine the Spotlight On Their Stylists

Julia Roberts Stylist THR

-I always adore the stylist issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Julia Roberts, Emily Blunt, Regina King, Idris Elba and more joined their stylists to discuss their work.

-The Global Talent issue of Vogue features Scarlett Johansson, Doona Bae, Deepika Padukone, Lea Seydoux, Elizabeth Debicki and more on the covers.

Chance the Rapper is having a big week. Days after getting married, he announced he and his new wife are expecting another baby.

-It was Shazam day in Toronto (where the film was shot). The cast met fans at Yonge-Dundas Square before tonight’s screening.

-Meanwhile, the new trailer includes some Aquaman shade.

-Speaking of superhero trailers, the new Avengers: Endgame trailer dropped this morning and when Captain Marvel appeared I made a noise I’ve never made before. It’s that good.

-Also, Marvel fixed the new Endgame poster after fans complained that Danai Gurira‘s name was left off.

Ben Affleck appeared on Ellen and finally admitted that his full back tattoo is not a myth.

Colin Farrell was also on the show, where he and Ellen dressed up audience members as clowns. I love that he commented what “good huggers” they are. *swoon*

Mark Ruffalo talked about those Noah Centineo comparisons on Fallon: “He’s way better looking than I was. Are you kidding me? I wish I looked like that.”

-Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, which is bad enough considering how much money they’re throwing at everything else. But the fact that they tried to blame viewership numbers (which they didn’t release) and then sent a tweet that seemed to plead for sympathy pissed a lot of people off. It’s been a while since I’ve seen so many TV critics this riled up.

-Hallmark has fired Lori Loughlin from all future projects following her involvement in the college scam scandal. She starred on series When Calls the Heart and in the Garage Sale Mystery series of TV movies.

-After reading this article, I really want to go to karaoke with Christine Baranski: “If I want to have the ultimate high, it would be Diana Ross singing ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.’ That key change.”

-Well, this is depressing. Gwyneth Paltrow has a larger influence on what Canadians eat than our own food guide.

-In a new interview, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund talk about my favourite paparazzi photos of all time. “We were photographed wrestling in our Speedos on the beach in Hawaii, which is unfortunate. It just, like, became a thing.”

-SNL’s Aidy Bryant ships costar Pete Davidson with Kate Beckinsale.

-Wayne’s World director Penelope Spheeris talked about why she quit the industry in a new interview: “Hollywood is a lonely, lonely desert, especially as a woman…I don’t need them. I really don’t. Especially now, what am I going to do? Work for a year on a movie and make $50,000? They can blow me! That’s a quote. You can print that.”

Taylor Schilling has to deal with her juggalo-loving neice and her nosy neighbor Kate McKinnon in the Family trailer.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.
