Charlize Theron Gets Tough in W

Charlize Theron W

Charlize Theron previews her ass-kicking role in Atomic Blonde in the new issue of W. She talks about the only bar fight she’s ever been in, accidentally punching Teri Hatcher in the face, and getting injured on set.

-There’s a lot of talk today about the scorched-earth interview T.J. Miller gave THR in the wake of his last episode of Silicon Valley. He’s way not enough of a household name to have this kind of attitude. He comes off terribly, takes a few swipes at costar Thomas Middleditch and burns a ton of bridges. Fargo’s Allison Tolman made a good point on Twitter: what would have the response been if an actress made those types of comments? Katherine Heigl was crucified for much less.

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins have finally left the hospital.

Brad Pitt is probably not dating Sienna Miller or Elle McPherson. What other attractive, age appropriate blonde can we throw at him?

Courteney Cox says she’s given up on fillers. Hallelujah!

Bruno Mars was looking real sleepy at the BET Awards last night.

-Meanwhile, Chris Brown and Migos reportedly had an altercation after the BET Awards.

Keanu Reeves and Jimmy Fallon playing “Whisper Challenge” led to Jimmy saying “cock” on TV so that’s fun.

-China’s box office rescued Transformers from disaster, continuing a trend of bailouts. The robots-in-disguise sequel collected $69 million in the U.S., a franchise low, but hit $123 million in China, a franchise high there.

-War for the Planet of the Apes is getting really good reviews. Like really, really good. Huh.

-Now that Netflix has started cancelling shows, they just can’t stop. Girlboss is the latest casualty.

-One of Johnny Depp‘s former manager backs up Amber Heard’s accusations against the actor. Well, if a man says it happens I guess everyone can believe her now, right?

-Here are more details about what really went down in the Hans Solo movie. An interesting tidbit: Lucasfilm decided to bring in an acting coach for Alden Ehrenreich when they were not entirely satisfied with the performance (acting coaches are not unusual — bringing one in that late into production is.)

-Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley will star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Caroline Kepnes‘ You. Oh, this is GOOD casting. He can play creepy yet strangely sympathetic well. Of course, this adaptation is going to live or die by who they cast as the female lead.

-Meanwhile, Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke celebrated their new marriage with another wedding.

-The new season of The Good Place will have a clam chowder fountain, which kind of sounds lovely.

-The writers for the new season of X Files have been revealed: Darin Morgan is back, but sadly no Vince Gilligan and Frank Spotnitz — and no women! Come on.

Idris Elba slays in new preview for Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower.

-The Bellas take their show on the road in first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3.

Renee Zellweger Tackles Gender Inequality


-This is a good profile on Renee Zellweger. It’s one thing for a paparazzi-baiting celeb like Jennifer Aniston to complain about the scrutiny surrounding her, but it’s more powerful when it comes from someone who self-exiled themselves from the spotlight for six years. I especially liked this part: “This conversation perpetuates the problem. Why are we talking about how women look? Why do we value beauty over contribution? We don’t seem to value beauty over contribution for men. It’s simply not a conversation.”

-On the flip side, Gabrielle Carteris is petitioning to keep ages off IMDB, saying that she wouldn’t have been Andrea on 90210 if a casting director could find her real age online. I’m not sure lying about aging is going to help with gender inequality.

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have split — about four years after we all expected them to.

Leslie Jonespersonal website was hacked and nude photos, passport, and passwords were posted online. This is bullshit. What was her crime? Starring in a summer movie while being a black female? Paul Feig has spoken out against it; I really hope her GB costars get vocal soon too.

-This preview of Britney Spears’ Carpool Karaoke edition has me worried. James Corden has said that they tape these things for hours, and this is the best they could edit down to 30 seconds? Her pretending to sing and not getting his jokes? Ooh boy.

-Unlike his Mr Robot character, Rami Malek can’t code or type, but he did manage to post his first Instagram selfie with Stephen Colbert’s help.

-The Affair costars Joshua Jackson and Ruth Wilson went to a restaurant together — for 8 hours! No judgement. If I were her, I’d extend that meal as long as possible too. (“You’re cool if I order a fourth entree, right?”)

Bella Thorne is one of those people who I can never, ever place (even though I’ve watched The Duff an embarrassing amount of times. Like, a mortifying amount). But now that she’s come out as bi weeks after splitting with her bf and now may be dating her brother’s ex-girlfriend, I guess I should start paying attention.

-Oh, and the next day it’s announced that she is executive producing a Lifetime TV movie. Got it.

John Krasinski says he might’ve played Captain America if he wasn’t so intimidated by the swole Chris Hemsworth.

-Also, Krasinski says he’d rather Emily Blunt this he was watching porn than have her realize he was watching Devil Wears Prada for the 75th time.

-“I don’t assume that people know who I am.” Beck, reminding us why we love him.

-Look, I like Michael Strahan just fine. He seems like a nice guy and I think my mom has a crush on him. But the way ABC keeps going all in with him confuses me. He just sold a script to them about a former football star who joins the Miami police force. Like, a drama script!

Courteney Cox ran wild with Bear Grylls and discussed her divorce from David Arquette, her “brutal” temporary split from Johnny McDaid and her plastic surgery regrets.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston had a fight? Heavens!

-Not sure we need to know that Naya Rivera got an abortion during her day off from Glee, but here we are.

-I love that Keira Knightley revealed that she’s been wearing wigs for years. I feel like 90% of female celebrities are wearing other people’s hair, while we spiral in hair envy about them.

-I could listen to Kevin Bacon talk about feminist theory forever.

-Whenever I see a Victoria Beckham dress design that I love, I get so confused/surprised.

-The first trailer for Kenneth Lonergan’s drama Manchester By the Sea is here, starring Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler. I’m basically planning my entire TIFF schedule around this movie.

The X Files Reviews: The Truth Is Out There…And It’s Not Good

-The trades just filed their early X Files reviews and they are…not good. Not good at all. Sigh.

-Well, at least the press tour continues to be entertaining. As do Gillian Anderson’s tweets about it.  And I’m still going to listen the crap outta Kumail Nanjiani’s podcast with Anderson and David Duchovny.

Leonardo DiCaprio says he isn’t ruling out children in his new Oscar campaign strategy Rolling Stone cover story.

-Your fake boyfriend Oscar Isaac has a real girlfriend. Sorry!

Kevin Hart says he caught Lady Gaga when she fell as she walked off the Golden Globes stage.

Jennifer Aniston’s diet makes me really sad for her. But then I remember she married this and that feeling goes away.

Seth Meyers explained El Chapo’s capture and Sean Penn‘s involvement with it. I’m still confused, but now I’m also amused. I’m conmused.

-Celebrities continue to geek out over Hamilton.

Kristen Bell is going to star in a new sitcom from the creator of Parks and Recreation. I like all of those words.

-In other intriguing comedy news, Courteney Cox just signed on to a new show written by someone from The Office.

-The Good Wife creators will exit the show after this season. Please let this mean the show is ending. Please please please!

-A Breaking Bad writer is adapting Anne of Green Gables for a new CBC show. This could be…interesting.

-There’s a new trailer for Hail Caesar! and it made me laugh.

-Here’s the first trailer for Matthew McConaughey’s new movie, Free State of Jones.
