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.

The Cast of Friends Reunites

-It was a big week for Friends reunions: Courteney Cox had a lunch with Matthew Perry, while Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow hit up a red carpet. (Perry is getting flak for this pic, but he looks way better than he did in pics that surfaced last week.)

Gwyneth Paltrow says she she’s “not sure how she feels” about Harvey Weinstein. “He was a very, very important figure in my life. He was my main boss. He gave me incredible opportunity and yet during that time we had a very, very fraught complicated relationship. Highs and lows. And the postscript to that chapter of my life is where it gets extremely complicated for me, because the information came to light about who he was and how he was behaving that I didn’t know during my already very difficult time with him.” You know what? Fair enough.

Prince William doesn’t seem to be a fan of Olivia Colman. How is that even possible?!?

-Meanwhile, Prince Harry made polite conversation with a person who has two kids and now everyone’s convinced that means he’s gunning for a second baby.

Early reaction to Greta Gerwig‘s Little Women has me very, very excited.

-Fresh Off the Boat has been cancelled. Do you think Constance Wu is somewhere throwing a party right now?

Kanye West claims he’s considering changing his name to Christian Genius Billionaire Kanye West. I hope he’s joking, but who can even tell at this point.

-Aw poop. The Beverly Hills reboot will not return for a second season on Fox. It was way more meta and clever than it had to be.

-If you’re in Toronto, you can buy a whole bunch of furniture and wardrobe from the Suits set. (Nothing Meghan Markle wore, though.)

-I’m going to see Last Christmas this weekend. Is it going to be terrible? Probably. Is Henry Golding going to end up being an angel? Almost certainly. Am I going to love it? Vulture calls it a “loveable mess” so 100% yes.

-This is a really clever cross-promotion in advance of Charlie’s Angels: in a new short filmKristen Stewart and the rest of the cast fight evil with RuPaul‘s Drag Race queens.

Ellen Goes as Cardi B for Halloween

-I’ll give it to Ellen — she does a mean Cardi B impersonation.

-I did not expect Courteney Cox‘s Halloween video to go there…

-There are reports that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss walked away from their Star Wars project in part due because they didn’t want to deal with another “toxic fandom” after their Game of Thrones experience. Something tells me it would have gotten a hell of a lot more toxic under those two.

Kelly Clarkson‘s Hocus Pocus tribute is something to behold.

Aaron Sorkin wrote an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg in the New York Times: “This can’t possibly be the outcome you and I want, to have crazy lies pumped into the water supply that corrupt the most important decisions we make together.” It’s kind of ironic that Sorkin’s Social Network is a big reason people viewed Zuckerberg as a scrappy underdog instead of someone in over his head for wayyyy longer than they should have.

-Ah boo. Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp have reportedly called off their engagement after eight years together.

Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Cox are in the Broadway play Betrayal, and last night they switched costumes from their individual superhero franchises: Tom was dressed as Daredevil and Charlie was Loki. My Twitter feed went berserk.

-Here’s our first look at Normal People, the TV adaptation of Sally Rooney‘s book (which people loved way more than I did).

-A snippet of Eminem‘s new song leaked and apparently it’s called “What If I Was Gay?” which, based on his previous history, has everyone bracing themselves.

Cuba Gooding Jr has been charged with six counts of forcible touching and 3rd degree sexual abuse. He pleaded not guilty.

-HBO/BBC’s adaptation of His Dark Materials is getting mixed to good to great reviews. I’m confused.

-Radiohead’s Thom Yorke‬ released a hand-illustrated video for “Last I Heard (…He Was Circling The Drain)” composed of 3,000 hand-drawn frames.

John Krasinski talking about his super impassioned father-in-law is adorable.

Emilia Clarke and Jimmy Fallon played the “Box of Lies” game and she was hilariously bad at it.

-This is another good thread in response to David Simon‘s Rolling Stone interview.

-The trailer for Netflix’s The Witcher, the streamer’s upcoming fantasy adventure based on the Polish novels and video games and starring Henry Cavill, has landed. It hits Netflix on Dec. 20.
