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.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

julianne moore in style

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.

Kanye West Goes to Washington

Kanye West and Trump are both so outrageous that it’s hard to be surprised by anything they do anymore. But their meeting today at the White House was bonkers. What even is this video? Can we all agree that Kanye is just all about empty provocation these days and probably doesn’t even believe what he’s saying? I mean, should we even care about what anyone whose iPhone password is just a serious of zeroes really thinks?

-Now Kid Rock is at the White House. This day just keeps getting better and better…

-Wait, does People’s new Lady Gaga cover story not actually include a new interview with Lady Gaga?

-I am very much appreciating Steve Carell’s transition into a silver fox.

Selena Gomez is seeking treatment after an emotional breakdown following a couple of hospital stays stemming from kidney transplant complications.

Amandla Stenberg says Jennifer Lawrence taught her how to “pee in the woods” when they were shooting The Hunger Games. Is that…something you have to be taught?

Scarlett Johansson has reportedly landed a $15 million payday for a Black Widow movie.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Meredith Grey deserves better than Ted from How I Met Your Mother. I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy for years and still this angers me!

Ryan Adams is butthurt by Mandy Moore‘s comments about their marriage.

-I watched the second episode of A Million Little things and damn, that show is bad. As this thread points out, it’s gruesome and gross.

-I was working from home today so I caught all of Dakota Johnson‘s segment on Ellen. I can’t tell if there’s just not a lot of there there, or if she just has an incredibly dry sense of humour but…oof. The only part that was halfway amusing was when Ellen made fun of her for not inviting her to her birthday party, and she responded by making fun of Ellen for asking about the pregnancy rumours.

-I’m already won over by the premise of Rebel Wilson‘s new movie: she’s trapped in a romcom and wooed by Chris Hemsworth.

-About this photo of Emily Bett Rickards: 1) I love her character’s new look. Witness protection, I’m guessing? 2) I love even more that she appears to have no idea when her show actually airs. Arrow doesn’t come back until Monday.

Julia Roberts tries to help Lucas Hedges escape his drug-dealing past in the trailer for Ben Is Back. The film festival buzz about this one is that the first half is an emotional family journey, and then it takes a weird turn.
