The Internet Reacts to Jessica Biel’s Anti-Vaxxer Comments

[programming note — I’m taking a few days off. Be back June 19th!]

Jessica Biel was spotted out having a good time with Justin Timberlake last night when her anti-vaxx views hit the fan. She then made an  an Instagram post, and claimed that she is “not against vaccinations” and that her “concern” with the bill “is solely regarding medical exemptions”. Except, as many people have pointed out, the bill she’s fighting doesn’t stop doctors exempting children who have genuine medical reasons. It’s designed for people to stop trying to bribe their doctors for a BS exemption. This is not her first time talking about this, and it still makes no sense.

-Twitter reacted harshly to Biel’s statement. Also, she’s probably the anti-vaxx actress Mindy Kaling referenced in her book, right??

Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in and is now in custody after the actor was accused of forcefully touching a woman’s chest while they were at a club.

Justin Bieber decided that maybe picking a fight with Tom Cruise wasn’t his best idea ever.

-Despite having a massive following on Instagram, Selena Gomez is so over the platform’s negativity she deleted the app from her phone.

Idris Elba has a new hobby — stunt car driver.

Nicholas Sparks didn’t want a club for gay students at his prep school. Let’s just stop reading romance from white dudes.

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Amazon show Too Old To Die Young starring Miles Teller is confusing critics — mostly because they were only given the 4th and 5th episode to screen.

Bryan Singer has agreed to pay $150K to settle a rape allegation made against him stemming from an incident on a yacht in 2003.

-Several actors have been disqualified from Emmys voting for breaking the rules.

-I know it’s ridiculous, but I’m here for the Keanu Reeves and Angelina Jolie romance rumours!

-In today’s “humanity is doomed” news: The creator of the Chernobyl series on HBO is asking people to stop taking sultry selfies at the nuclear disaster site.

-The Orphan Black storyline will continue with Tatiana Maslany voicing a new podcast series.

-This is fun: Daniel Radcliffe has joined the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt interactive special.

-I adore this feature on 25 episodes that changed television.

Keira Knightley stars in the Official Secrets trailer.

Rihanna Contemplates Marriage and Motherhood

Rihanna discussed marriage and love in a candid new chat with her Ocean’s 8 co-star Sarah Paulson for Interview magazine. She talked about carving time out of her schedule for boyfriend of two years Hassan Jameel (“I got into a new relationship, and it matters to me. It was like, ‘I need to make time for this.’ Just like I nurture my businesses, I need to nurture this as well. I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous ‘P,’ which means personal days. This is a new thing”), and said she wants to be a mother “More than anything in life.” (My fave part about the interview is when Paulson starts serenading her and Rihanna says “I’m going to tell you this because I’m a black girl: You’re going to have to stay on beat, okay?”)

-Vanity Fair wrote an article speculating who Ellen Pompeo may have been referring to when she talked about “toxic behavior” on the set of Grey’s Anatomy for the first 10 seasons — and Isaiah Washington read it and snapped. He tweeted “Vanity Fair needs to keep my name out of this. You gone be dirty? Why don’t you ask Ellen Pompeo how she was paid ‘hush money’ to protect Patrick Dempsey and HIS ‘toxic behavior’.” 👀

Kylie Jenner threw a Handmaid’s Tale-themed party. No, girl.

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are officially married. They shared identical posts about it on Instagram (each with a line about how they’re “grateful to Mr. Giorgio Armani” for outfitting them which is…uh…something. Did their sponcon agreement specific a sentence or do they just not know how to tag?)

-Fans are baffled after Justin Bieber challenged Tom Cruise to a UFC fight.

-I’m very ok with The Good Place announcing that season four will be its last.

Cuba Gooding Jr. has been accused of grabbing a women’s breasts in a NYC club and could potentially be arrested.

-This is horrible: A year after Pauley Perrette exited NCIS following 15 seasons on the show, she took to Twitter to beg fans to stop asking her to return — because she says she’s afraid of being in the presence of lead actor Mark Harmon. She posted “I am terrified of Harmon and him attacking me. I have nightmares about it. I have a new show that is SAFE AND HAPPY!” and then a separate tweet of two graphic photos of an NCIS crew member with stitches around his eyes.

-I love that The Other Two and Barry are on this list of the best TV so far in 2019. I’d add Better Things, too.

-This video compilation of Gwyneth Paltrow being clueless about what’s going on in the MCU movies she stars in is great. Just cash those Marvel checks, girl.

Kiefer Sutherland calling out our ridiculous premier on Twitter is a good time.

-I gave up on The 100 after season 2 but a lot of my Twitter mutuals still watch it and ship Bellarke (which seems really hard because I don’t think they’ve progressed past a hug in the last five seasons). So it was nice to see their total bliss meltdown when the actors — who no one even knew were dating — announced that they eloped last month.

Celine Dion stopping her set until a guy came back from the bathroom so he wouldn’t miss anything is very on brand and wonderful.

-This is a good breakdown of what happened to X-Men’s Dark Phoenix, which bombed at the weekend box office and could lose $100M. Insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that after the disaster that was Apocalypse, execs came away thinking that the movie’s failure had been due to an excessive amount of explosions and scale, not due to franchise fatigue generally. “We were wrong.” Then the release date was moved to June to placate James Cameron, Fox’s most important filmmaker, so not to conflict with Alita: Battle Angel. And Dark Phoenix’s muddled marketing campaign didn’t help. “When definite awareness of Rocketman is higher than an X-Men movie, you know you’re in strange territory.”

Laura Linney and Audra McDonald had some funny “beef” at last night’s Tonys.

DJ Khaled‘s energy drink bundles might have cost him a #1 album, and now he’s reportedly planning to sue Billboard over it.

-I’m taking a break from non-Legends of Tomorrow CW superhero shows, but here’s the first full trailer for Batwoman.

-The footage of Keanu Reeves recording his part for Toy Story 4 went viral this weekend (deservedly) thanks to a Chris Evens boost.

-Cyberpunk 2077 comes out next year – but Keanu showed up at E3 yesterday to promote his involvement and debut the first trailer.

 

A Second Season of Big Little Lies Might Happen After All

-Because Hollywood just can’t leave well enough alone, the author of Big Little Lies says HBO approached her to work on ideas for a second season.

-The internet is convinced Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake recorded a new song together.

-This Scandal oral history reveals that ABC originally wanted Connie Britton to play Olivia Pope, and that Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn had this “immediate electricity” (which I’m sure is provoking much snickering in the blind item circles).

-This is an interesting peek inside the WGA talks.

Jemima Kirke and Dennis Quaid had a charming conversation about on-set boners.

50 Cent punched a female fan in the chest at a concert, but then invited her twerk on stage so I guess all is forgiven?

Zoë Kravitz‘s short, platinum cut is giving me hair envy.

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson sang show tunes together on a night out in the West Village. I guess they’re both over skirt-gate.

Katy Perry and Ryan Phillippe aren’t dating, but they are exchanging cute tweets about the rumours.

-I enjoyed this take on how The Rock became our fave populist hero.

-This is a good read on how independent cinema is moving out of the art house and into every house thanks to Netflix and Amazon.

-I don’t watch Bates Motel but star Freddie Highmore directed last night’s episode and everyone loved it. In my head he’s still 12 so this is all very confusing…

Charlize Theron beats a man to death with her stiletto in new Atomic Blonde promo. This feels like something they should have not given away in the trailer but I’ll take it.
