Stars Shine the Spotlight On Their Stylists

Julia Roberts Stylist THR

-I always adore the stylist issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Julia Roberts, Emily Blunt, Regina King, Idris Elba and more joined their stylists to discuss their work.

-The Global Talent issue of Vogue features Scarlett Johansson, Doona Bae, Deepika Padukone, Lea Seydoux, Elizabeth Debicki and more on the covers.

Chance the Rapper is having a big week. Days after getting married, he announced he and his new wife are expecting another baby.

-It was Shazam day in Toronto (where the film was shot). The cast met fans at Yonge-Dundas Square before tonight’s screening.

-Meanwhile, the new trailer includes some Aquaman shade.

-Speaking of superhero trailers, the new Avengers: Endgame trailer dropped this morning and when Captain Marvel appeared I made a noise I’ve never made before. It’s that good.

-Also, Marvel fixed the new Endgame poster after fans complained that Danai Gurira‘s name was left off.

Ben Affleck appeared on Ellen and finally admitted that his full back tattoo is not a myth.

Colin Farrell was also on the show, where he and Ellen dressed up audience members as clowns. I love that he commented what “good huggers” they are. *swoon*

Mark Ruffalo talked about those Noah Centineo comparisons on Fallon: “He’s way better looking than I was. Are you kidding me? I wish I looked like that.”

-Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, which is bad enough considering how much money they’re throwing at everything else. But the fact that they tried to blame viewership numbers (which they didn’t release) and then sent a tweet that seemed to plead for sympathy pissed a lot of people off. It’s been a while since I’ve seen so many TV critics this riled up.

-Hallmark has fired Lori Loughlin from all future projects following her involvement in the college scam scandal. She starred on series When Calls the Heart and in the Garage Sale Mystery series of TV movies.

-After reading this article, I really want to go to karaoke with Christine Baranski: “If I want to have the ultimate high, it would be Diana Ross singing ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.’ That key change.”

-Well, this is depressing. Gwyneth Paltrow has a larger influence on what Canadians eat than our own food guide.

-In a new interview, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund talk about my favourite paparazzi photos of all time. “We were photographed wrestling in our Speedos on the beach in Hawaii, which is unfortunate. It just, like, became a thing.”

-SNL’s Aidy Bryant ships costar Pete Davidson with Kate Beckinsale.

-Wayne’s World director Penelope Spheeris talked about why she quit the industry in a new interview: “Hollywood is a lonely, lonely desert, especially as a woman…I don’t need them. I really don’t. Especially now, what am I going to do? Work for a year on a movie and make $50,000? They can blow me! That’s a quote. You can print that.”

Taylor Schilling has to deal with her juggalo-loving neice and her nosy neighbor Kate McKinnon in the Family trailer.

Cardi B Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Cardi B Offset Harpers Bazaar

Cardi B is coming in hot with her Harper’s Bazaar photo spread, which is by far the best editorial of the year so far. (I love that she got in a fight with Nicki Minaj at Harper’s Fashion Week party, and not only did she still land their cover, the photos actually reference it.) In the interview, she talks about working on her marriage to Offset (“Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind”), postpartum depression (“When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.’ But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders”), and re-prioritizing (“Now I don’t feel like I have the time to please people. I don’t care about anything anymore—just my career and my kid. Well, I care about my career because of my money”).

Ellen Page going after Chris Pratt is a mood! (At what point can we just drop Pratt from all those “who’s the best Chris” discussions? Messina is ready to swap in!)

-Congrats to Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley, who got married.

-Man, EW’s romcom issue is just the gift that keeps on giving. Today they posted a piece with Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Akerman, and Ed Burns reminiscing about 27 Dresses (a film that holds up surprisingly well).

Ariana Grande had a busy day! She just dropped a new (possibly queerbaiting?) music video, and a new album that’s getting rave reviews.

-The Grammys are gonna be a mess. Not only is Ariana bailing, Drake, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar all declined invitations to perform too.

Danai Gurira is leaving The Walking Dead. She’s the only good thing the show still has going for it and if AMC didn’t feel the need to throw bags of money her way to make her stay, it’s their loss.

-Meanwhile, Norman Reedus may not be working with Andrew Lincoln any more, but he hasn’t stopped pranking him.

-There’s a new Soderbergh movie on Netflix today starring André Holland and Zazie Beetz called High Flying Bird, and critics really dig it.

-Leaving Neverland, that Michael Jackson documentary that had Sundance buzzing, is coming to HBO in March.

-In other HBO news, Barry and Veep will premiere in March, while Big Little Lies’ second season is landing in June.

Miley Cyrus is now officially going by Miley Hemsworth.

Juliett Binoche‘s comments on Harvey Weinstein are super disappointing. Goddammit, I just sat through Let The Sunshine In for her!

-Ugh, Casey Affleck exhausts me.

-Former CW lead Chad Michael Murray playing a supporting character on Riverdale really is karma at work.

-Good on Jeff Bezos (words I never thought I’d say) for exposing the National Enquirer’s attempts to blackmail him using nude photos, but female celebrities did it first.

Samuel L. Jackson and Jessie Usher make a badass father and son pair in the Shaft reboot.

Lana Condor Talks About Her True Love — And It’s Not Noah Centineo

lana-condor-noah-centineo

-In her new Cosmo cover storyLana Condor admits she and Noah Centineo did nothing to stop those romance rumours, despite her having a longtime live-in boyfriend. But I wonder how much that was encouraged by Netflix during TATBILB’s press tour?

-Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence, who’s reportedly engaged to art gallery rep Cooke Maroney.

Bradley Cooper was refreshingly candid when he talked to Oprah about being “embarrassed” by his Oscar snub for Best Director. “I felt embarrassed that I didn’t do my part. I’ll work on that. I went, ‘Oh, gosh. I didn’t do my job.'”

-The Walking Dead has been renewed for Season 10, but there is a chance Danai Gurira may not return as negotiations have become more complicated since she became a superstar thanks to Black Panther. Meanwhile, Norman Reedus becomes No. 1 on the callsheet with a reported paycheck of $350,000 per episode on top of additional guarantees and advances in a deal that sources say could be worth anywhere from $50 million to $90 million. (That guy also hits the lucrative con circuit hard so he’s pretty much flush.)

In the new issue of British GQ, Armie Hammer (who might be Hollywood’s worst tweeter — discuss!) stands by his tweets that criticized celebrities’ selfie tributes to the late Stan Lee.

Hugh Jackman accidentally restarted his fake feud with ‘total f—ing a–hole’ Ryan Reynolds.

-Avengers: Endgame might clock in at 3 hours. Dear god.

Jennifer Lopez is performing a Motown tribute at the Grammys and people are not happy.

-I’ve been reading a bit of backlash about the third season of The Good Place and I just don’t get it. Yeah, the Earth-bound stuff wasn’t great and I’m not totally shipping Eleanor and Chidi (and I ship everyone!) but this was also the season that gave us the Jeremy Bearimy episode so I have no complaints.

-Just eat the damn pizza, Drew Barrymore.

-Here’s our first look at the Four Weddings and a Funeral reunion for Red Nose Day.

-Speaking of first looks, HBO just released a bunch of photos from Game of Thrones’ final season. I feel like I’m going to love Sansa this season.

-People’s cover story gives good press to Meghan Markle (which she can use after the trashing she’s getting in the British press — there was a headline yesterday about her being the cause of Harry’s baldness). People’s story has some new scoop, including how she leans on her faith and how everything went down with her father during the wedding.

Ed Westwick (who was accused by three women of sexual assault but prosecutors did not pursue charges) just landed a new gig. These men are Teflon.

-EW is doing a bunch of romcom retrospectives in time for Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure anyone needs a fond look back at He’s Just Not That Into You, but I really liked this piece about Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt getting together to re-watch (500) Days of Summer 10 years later.

-Celebs are getting in on the #FuckFuckJerry action and calling on people to unfollow their accounts.

-Here’s the first trailer for The Sun Is Also a Star. This book is on my bedside table and it’s one of two (alongside The Hating Game) that I pick up whenever I’m down because I can flip to a random page and it just brings the happy. So trust me when I say I do NOT want them to screw up this movie — and this trailer has me hopeful that they won’t. Yara Shahidi looks perfect; I’m less convinced about the Riverdale guy but I’ll give him a chance.
