Emilia Clarke Says She’s “Photoshopped and Drunk” on Esquire Cover


Emilia Clarke says she was “photoshopped and drunk” during her Esquire cover shoot. The Photoshopped part was pretty obvious. I could barely recognize her.

-Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner does a pretty mean Jon Snow impression. Her Professor X impression could use some work, though.

Is Colin Farrell the reason Kirsten Dunst reportedly broke up with her boyfriend of four years Garrett Hedlund? I’m doubtful, but if true, she really needs to read the memoir his ex Emma Forrest wrote. Seriously gurl, read it!

-The fact that Michael Buble is being mercilessly mocked for the gross way he eats corn makes me way happier than it probably should.

-Prayer circle time, y’all. Prince has reportedly been hospitalized after an emergency landing in Illinois.

-Tough crowd. Jennifer Aniston was reportedly booed when she showed up late to the premiere of Mother’s Day. That’s seems like an overreaction. I’m sure she was only a little … wait… what’s that? She showed up an hour late? Never mind. Resume booing.

-I know celebrity pregnancy news comes in threes, but I’m super side-eying this report about Katie Holmes expecting with Jamie Foxx.

-Vulture’s piece examining why Hollywood keeps disrespecting Melissa McCarthy is so, so good. Why is everyone whining about how she needs a new agent instead of lining up to work with her? (I take issue with the notion that she surfaced out of nowhere, though — 7 seasons on the Gilmore Girls is a lot of exposure.)

-Sad news: Aisha Tyler and husband are divorcing after more than 20 years of marriage. She the bestest human ever and deserves a life filled with only happiness, rainbows and chocolate sprinkles.

-Jesus Christ. Did grown ass man Henry Cavill really give his 19-year-old girlfriend a promise ring? I was worried she would be too immature for him. Not anymore.

-The Ghost in the Shell producers are really leaning into the crapstorm. They reportedly ran VFX tests to make white actors appear Asian.

-MTV’s ‘delete you account‘ column is my new favourite thing. Erykah Badu wasn’t surprising but Parker Posey broke my heart a lil’ bit.

-Here’s a trailer for Mr Robot’s season two. I want it now!!

-This video of Paul Rudd getting excited when he heard his name being called by a kid is the best thing ever.

-The second best thing ever is this video of Stephen Amell correctly identifying photos of celebrity abs. It went from being impressive to being kind of scary. “That’s a before shot of Michael B Jordan.” Dude, let’s be friends. I think we share a lot of common interests….

Drake joined Rihanna onstage during her performance in Toronto last night.

-Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s second season is now on Netflix, and critics are saying it feels more like 30 Rock. Sign me up!

-Following news that Louis C.K.‘s experimental web drama Horace and Pete put him millions of dollars in debt, here’s an interesting examination of TV’s modern business models and the worth of art.

-I mean, I’m seeing this Nine Lives trailer and yet I still can’t quite bring myself to fully believe that Kevin Spacey plays a talking cat.

-This story about how a movie critic once pooped his pants while waiting to talk to James Cameron about Avatar might be the best thing I’ve read all week.

-A clothing company is claiming Beyonce didn’t give them enough credit in her Elle photo spread. Isn’t that the magazine’s job?

-Here’s the trailer for Nate Parker‘s eagerly awaited The Birth of a Nation, which set a record at the Sundance Film Festival when it was sold for $17.5 million.

Charlie Sheen Says He Was Extorted Millions To Keep His HIV Diagnosis a Secret


Charlie Sheen admitted that he’s the person behind all those blind rumours about an actor who’s HIV+. He says he was diagnosed four years ago, and was then extorted for $10 million by people who knew and wanted to be paid for their silence.

-Meanwhile, Sheen‘s ex-wife Brooke Mueller and his twin sons are not HIV-positive, says their rep.

-Following Sheen‘s announcement, Justin Bieber reportedly “requested a dressing room away from” him this morning on The Today Show.

-Also, here’s a great read about Bieber‘s inevitable turn toward Christianity.

-People offered a sneak peek at their Sexiest Man Alive (which will be announced tonight on Kimmel). Does that look like Will Smith‘s ankle?

Amy Poehler and George Clooney get festive in the new trailer for Bill Murray’s Netflix holiday special.

-Speaking of Amy, she’ll join Tina Fey and Ryan Gosling(!) among SNL’s December hosts.

-CW’s Seed platform is becoming a thing. Last week they announced they were streaming The OC; now it’s Pushing Daisies.

-Meanwhile, here’s a look at how The Flash has turned the CW into a ratings contender on Tuesdays (TL;DR: every other network’s programming sucks).

-I think I might like Adele’s new song more than “Hello” (and I really like “Hello”).

-This is a great interview with my Master of None crush Kelvin Yu. I had *no* idea he was the kid in Popular.

-I don’t know anything about the comic book character John Constantine (with the exception of the time he was in an episode of Arrow), but if Matt Ryan can’t play him on the big screen, Colin Farrell seems like the next best choice.

Idris Elba is previewing the new Luther special. Can’t wait!

-Here’s Sarah Jessica Parker looking very Carrie Bradshaw-y on the set of her new HBO show, Divorce.

-Speaking of HBO, they just reupped their deal with True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto. Sigh.

-The trailer for Gods of Egypt, starring Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, has landed and it looks like a pile of hot garbage.

Shondaland Takes Over EW


-EW published 4 different #TGIT covers (the best is Shonda Rhimes with her leading ladies, but $10 says the one with Ellen Pompeo will end up in by mailbox. Why does she have to be so nekkid?! How am I supposed to carry this in public? I still haven’t de-blushed from reading this issue on the subway.).

-Even more interesting than the covers/quotes is this gallery from behind the scenes of the photo shoot. I spent a lot of time creepin’ those pics and studying everyone’s interactions.

Taylor Swift’s camp wants to make it clear that she was not caught on camera doing coke backstage at the VMAs, she was merely blowing her nose. Not only does the video prove it, but it also proves what an INSANE production it is whenever she needs to use a tissue. Seriously, was the human shield necessary?!

-In her Glamour cover story, Anne Hathaway talks about how she’s already losing roles to younger actresses. She’s 32. I hate the world.

-According to Kate Hudson’s Instagram, she’s trying to convince Jennifer Aniston to join the network. God, can you imagine what her feed would look like? I’m picturing a lot of inspirational quotes about yelling at the ocean.

-I take CDAN blind items with a huge grain of salt (less a grain, more a salt mine), but even if this one turns out to be totally made up, it made me laugh and laugh and laugh…

-Congrats to Tom Hardy and his wife Charlotte, who are expecting their second kidlet.

-Also, Tom brought his dog to the Legend premiere and it’s making me feel things.

-Who goes to Benihana, falls into the goddamn grill, and then BLAMES BENIHANA? Tori Spelling, that’s who.

-Did Sandra Bullock‘s new boyfriend break up with his 23-year-old GF to date her?

Gillian Anderson tweeted a photo from the last day of The X Files’ shoot in Vancouver. (She’s heading to Toronto this weekend. I’m going to try not to make an ass of myself when I meet her. I will undoubtedly fail.)
-It doesn’t matter how good you thought she looked, Cindy Crawford says that unretouched photo of her that went viral “was stolen and malicious.”

-Weird. Mark Ruffalo says the Hulk will not be in the next Captain America movie.

Lana Del Rey is walking back that comment about feminism being “not an interesting concept.” Kind of.

-This is a great followup to that article I linked to earlier this week about how Netflix is killing the binge watching pattern they made famous. Netflix, Amazon, HBO et al prioritizing quantity over quality is not exactly promising for the future of TV. Sometimes network executive intervention is needed to keep a show on track. For every TV auteur with a singular vision like Mr Robot’s Sam Esmail, there’s the flip side like True Detective’s Nic Pizzolatto. (And, let’s face it, as much as I adore Mr Robot, it still isn’t perfect.) Maybe collaboration and network notes aren’t always a bad thing?

-I adore Diane Kruger’s first outfit here. The boots make it.

-I already filled this year’s quirky/weirdo TIFF film quota with Men & Chicken (because nothing has made me laugh harder in a long time than this trailer), but an equally bizarro looking TIFF offering is The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell as a man who has forty-five days to find love or else he will be turned into an animal. I think I’m going to love this.
