British GQ

Ryan Gosling made rare comments about his family in his new British GQ interview (which was basically a big ad for his new Tag Heuer campaign). “Our kids were at a difficult age not to be able to see other kids and interact with people, even though Eva [Mendes] and I did our best.” He added that to keep the kids entertained during lockdown, the couple did “more acting in quarantine than in our films. Tougher crowd, though.”

-In a new interview, Jamie Dornan reflected on 2021, in which his father passed way. “It’s a strange thing to end the year with all this positivity — with so much praise for Belfast and a lot of good talk about The Tourist. Because on many levels it’s been the worst year of my life, and the hardest.”

Tristan Thompson apologized to Khloé Kardashian via Instagram Stories (not even a feed post!) after a paternity test proved that he did indeed father a child with someone else when they were still dating.

Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are in the Bahamas together.

-The Omicron hits keep coming in Hollywood. Jimmy Fallon said he and his daughters tested positive before Christmas (right before he was set to appear on SNL) but had mild symptoms, while Seth Meyers cancelled the rest of his shows this week after testing positive. And Whoopi Goldberg is missing The View this week after testing positive.

Betty White‘s agent has responded to rumours. “People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true. She died of natural causes. Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”

Jared Leto’s Morbius has been pushed yet again and will now hit theaters in April. (Dylan O’Brien‘s sarcastic, salty response to this news made my eyebrow raise.)

-Now that a settlement between Jeffrey Epstein and a woman who sued Prince Andrew for sexual abuse has come to light, the prince’s lawyers are trying to get the case dismissed. It is not going well for him.

Patton Oswalt took to social media to explain why he posted a photo with pal Dave Chappelle. “I’m an LGBTQ ally. I’m a loyal friend. There’s friction in those traits.”

-I can’t believe that the Harry Potter reunion special (which was very charming) accidentally used a childhood photo of Emma Roberts instead of Emma Watson.

Halle Berry didn’t really get married — but she clearly wanted us to think she did.

-I really enjoyed the spoiler-filled interview with the writers for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

-Meanwhile, Spider-Man: No Way Home is on its way to becoming the 10th biggest film in history at the domestic box office with a haul of $609.9 million so far.

-Character actor David Koechner (probably best known from The Office and Anchorman) was arrested on NYE for suspected DUI and hit-and-run.

-Oof. Dr. Dre has reportedly been ordered to pay his ex $100 million in their divorce settlement.

-I missed all the drama on Twitter last week but basically Adam McKay was saying that if you don’t like Don’t Look Up (and I didn’t) you don’t care about climate change? Did I get that right?

-If you want to watch a Netflix movie that’s actually good, I liked The Lost Daughter and am fully expecting Olivia Colman to nab a nomination for it.

-I also missed the news that Kanye West bought a house across the street from Kim Kardashian. That’s…really something.

Will Arnett will be replacing Armie Hammer in Taika Waititi’s soccer comedy, Next Goal Wins.

-I loved the Insecure finale — and this interview with Issa Rae about it. (I also loved that her  PR team told her they were aiming to get her a magazine cover every month to mark the final season, and they delivered.)

-On Christmas Day, Netflix gave us a gift: the announcement that Bridgerton will return in March.

-The new trailer for The Batman features our best look at Catwoman and The Riddler yet.

Lady Gaga’s Duel Vogue Covers

Lady Gaga is on the December cover of of both British Vogue and Vogue Italia. She looks amazing on both, but it’s the Italia one on the right for me. In the interview, she talks about how committed she was when preparing for her role in House of Gucci. “It is three years since I started working on it and I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as [her character Reggiani] for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that. Off camera, I never broke. I stayed with her.”

-J. Crew unveiled its holiday campaign with Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, and the whole thing is a delight! The little videos further down on the page are sooo cute. “Katie, call me in case this doesn’t work out.” “You call it a toque.” “That’s its name!”

Kristen Stewart confirmed that she and her girlfriend of two years, Dylan Meyer, are engaged. She told Howard Stern, “We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it.”

-In his British GQ cover story, Jamie Dornan says he’s sick of people making fun of Fifty Shades of Grey. “Look, put it this way: It’s done no harm to my career to be part of a movie franchise that has made more than $1 billion. Every working actor would say the same thing. It’s provided a lot. There’s no shame in saying it’s transformed my life and my family’s life financially. I am very, very grateful for this and always will be…But I take issue with the whole thing being just a bit of a joke. Everyone involved worked as hard as they could on those films, including myself.”

-Game Of Thrones actress Gemma Whelan, who played Yara, says the show didn’t have an intimacy coordinator so sex scenes were a “frenzied mess.”

-Speaking of GoT alums, Jason Momoa says he’s “camped out at his house” after testing positive for covid. Judging by the rep he gained while shooting in here in Toronto this summer, I’m not surprised.

Ed Sheeran has been cleared to perform on SNL after completing quarantine following a positive test. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift and Saweetie have just been added as musical guests in Nov.

-The remaining members of Little Mix say that they talked to Jesy Nelson about blackfishing before she left the group last December. “Jesy was approached by the band in a very friendly, educational manner.”

Shonda Rhimes‘ next Netflix show, Inventing Anna, will drop in Feb. The eight-episode limited series, based on a New York Magazine story about a charming young grifter who infiltrated NYC’s social scene, began production in fall 2019 and finished a full year later because of the pandemic.

-I love that the girls from The Bold Type spent Halloween together.

Dave Chappelle introduced Jay-Z‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and began his speech by saying, “I would like to apologize to… Nah, I’m just f—in’ with ya.” Classy.

Kieran Culkin visited Vanity Fair’s Succession podcast and talked about how his character will never admit how much he loves his siblings.

-Here’s our first clip from Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist holiday special.

-In news that should surprise no one, the reviews for Showtime’s revival of Dexter are bleak.

Jennifer Lopez recreated her 2002 “All That I Have” video for her new Coach campaign — and looks pretty much the same.

-Here’s a look at HBO Max’s upcoming series Station Eleven. I loved the book and I adore Mackenzie Davis, but man am I not ready yet to watch post-pandemic apocalyptic drama.

Angelina Jolie Sparkles in Rome

Angelina Jolie and her daughters Zahara and Shiloh were stunning at the Eternal premiere in Rome. This is the best dress she’s worn in ages.  (Her extensions were weak, though.)

-Speaking of the Eternals press tour style, Gemma Chan has been flawless.

-There’s lots of talk that there’s trouble in paradise for John Mulaney and Olivia Munn. Us Weekly is quoting a source who says, “Olivia and John still have to decide what kind of future they’re going to have together, if any. It’s a time of uncertainty, for both of them.” Meanwhile, DeuxMoi is posting blinds about them splitting up.

-Ex Bachelor host Chris Harrison is engaged to Entertainment Tonight reporter Lauren Zima. I appreciate that neither of their IG posts made a joke about giving each other a rose.

-SNL is reportedly scrambling to replace Ed Sheeran as a musical guest after he revealed he tested positive for COVID, and The Mountain Goats have volunteered as tribute.

-In a new stand-up video, Dave Chappelle denies reports that he refused to meet with Netflix’s transgender employees. “That is not true — if they had invited me I would have accepted it, although I am confused about what we would be speaking about.” He added, “To the transgender community, I am more than willing to give you an audience, but you will not summon me. I am not bending to anybody’s demands.”

Kristen Stewart says she’s only proud of 5 movies on her resume. Which ones could they be?!?

-I heartily endorse this video encouraging people to binge the fifth season of The Good Fight. Maybe my fave season yet?

-A search warrant obtained by the L.A. Times details what happened on the set of Rust and in cinematographer Halyna Hutchins‘ final minutes. Alec Baldwin was practicing removing a revolver from its holster and aiming toward the camera during rehearsal. He had been given the gun by the AD, who incorrectly declared it “cold,” which is a term used to describe a weapon that contains no live rounds.

-The showrunner of ABC’s The Rookie is the first to ban live fire from his set following the accident. It’s a good start, but I hope the bigger conversation revolves around how crew members need to be better trained, paid and rested.

Paul Walker‘s daughter got married, and his Fast and the Furious costar Vin Diesel walked her down the aisle in place of her late father.

-The Ruby Rose vs CW/WBTV feud continues. In a new statement, Warner Bros. Television “condemned” Rose’s recent allegations about her TV dad on Batwoman, Dougray Scott. “Warner Bros. has found Mr. Scott to be a consummate professional, and never received any allegation against him of bullying, or of abusive behavior on his part. Mr. Scott was greatly respected and admired by his colleagues, and was a leader on the set.”

-Meanwhile, Rose dropped another bunch of screenshots on Instagram Stories but they’re really hard to read and the messaging is confusing. If she has allegations/proof that the set is unsafe I wish she’d figure out a better way to release it. (It also doesn’t help that her first drop included the incorrect claim that Batwoman didn’t shut down production for Covid until after The Flash, Supergirl and Riverdale. The latter shut down a couple of days before the other CW shows because of a positive test, but the rest all shut down the same day.)

-Also not helping her case, a PA on the show called her a “dictator to work for.”  (She says he wasn’t on the call sheet and didn’t work there, but other crew members came to his defense.)

Jim Caviezel has fallen all the way down the Q rabbit hole.

James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther on Friends, has passed away at age 59 after a battle with prostate cancer.

Dylan Sprouse and Virginia Gardner have been cast in the movie adaptation of Beautiful Disasters. I can’t believe of all the amazing romance novels out there to adapt, they’re going ahead with this book. Not only has this adaptation been struggling to get off the ground for a decade, but lots of people think the book is problematic. Plus, the author keeps creating shitstorms with her social media posts, whether it’s her racists talk, her fatphobia or her anti-v*xx crap.

Brendan Fraser will play the villain in HBO Max’s Batgirl movie. Love this for him.

Nina Dobrev and Abigail Cowen star in the Redeeming Love trailer.
