Chris Evans Decks His Dog in Knives Out Sweater

Chris Evans’ Christmas tweet won the internet this week.

-Actress Janina Gavankar says she took Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s adorable holiday photo — and slammed the Daily Mail for photoshopping it.

Drake went on a podcast and didn’t hold back. He talked about why he waited so long to confirm the existence of his son (“To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not. I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn’t”), and says he had a “moment of hesitation” about collaborating with Chris Brown because he didn’t want Rihanna to “feel disrespected.”

-He also dropped a new single on Christmas Eve.

Rachel Bilson and Bill Hader were spotted spending the holidays together — and I kind of love it! Surprised that he’s only two years older than her, too.

-Speaking of romantic Christmases, Taylor Swift spent the holidays with Joe Alwyn in England.

-Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey is having a not great holiday week after she was sued by her former nanny, who claims the singer fired her in retaliation for complaining about pay and hours.

Evan Rachel Wood really, really hated Cats. She’s not the only one — it’s only grossed $15 million in its first 6 days, despite costing $90M+.

-I haven’t seen it yet but is this an actual clip from the movie? Because HOLY. SHIT.  (Also, I love reading all the bemused tweets about the film from people who work in vfx.)

-The film was so rushed that director Tom Hopper was still editing it on the afternoon of the premiere — and it shows. The studio is rushing a new cut to theatres, presumably one in which Judi Dench’s human hands/wedding ring aren’t visible.

-Not surprisingly, the studio has pulled the film from awards contention.

-Also, remember the Sony leak when Hopper kept emailing Amy Pascal and she kept making excuses about why he couldn’t direct her movies because she thinks he’s “a staggering asshole.”

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth finalized their divorce this week.

Kumail Nanjiani‘s trainer talked about the intense workouts/diets he undertook to gain those muscles for his new Marvel movie, and it all sounds miserable.

Jake Gyllenhaal is in John Mulaney‘s new children’s special on Netflix and if this clip is any indication, he gives an awesome unhinged performance.

Kevin Spacey is back at it. He posted yet another bizarre holiday video as his House of Cards character.

-Meanwhile, another Spacey accuser has died of apparent suicide.

-Director Edgar Wright made a Spotify playlist of his 50 favourite songs of the year and it’s pretty great.

-I will never get tired of watching Oscar Isaac using interviews to push for a Finn & Poe romance.

-The showrunner of The Affair, Sarah Treem, wrote an essay to defend her side, but by saying that she worked for years trying to make Ruth Wilson more comfortable on set, she basically admits that Ruth Wilson spent years being uncomfortable on her set.

-I’m surprised people are debating the ending of Little Women. The person in question definitely gets married.

-The cast of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina seem to have fun together.

-Now Pierce Brosnan is praising Trump? Ugh.

Saoirse Ronan Little Women

-In her Variety cover story, Saoirse Ronan says “I tapped Greta [Gerwig] on the shoulder and said I heard she was doing Little Women, and that I needed to be Jo.” She says when Gerwig said she had to think about it, she replied “Oh, for f—k’s sake.” Gerwig, however, remembers it a bit differently: “Saoirse told me she was playing Jo.”

Michael B Jordan shot his Esquire cover story at his old high school.

-Speaking of great covers, Queen and Slim’s Jodie Turner-Smith and Daniel Kaluuya are on Vibe’s digital cover.

-This is gutting: Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist posted a raw, unflinching 14-minute video on Instagram detailing the abuse she says she suffered at the hands of an ex. Those she doesn’t name her alleged attacker, she claims he once threw an iPhone at her face so hard it tore her iris, and they made up a story about how she tripped and fell on a potted plant. She retold the potted plant story on The Tonight Show and at the time told Jimmy Fallon it happened the day after she landed Supergirl, which — if true — means it would have been in 2015 when she was married to Glee costar Blake Jenner.

Keke Palmer‘s song association video is wonderful. It’s almost as good as her impassioned defense of the movie Titanic.

-I like how many Canada callouts there are in Dan Levy‘s 73 Questions with Vogue video.

-Former Grey’s Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington is getting a show on Fox News’ streaming service. Sounds about right.

-Variety dug deeper into Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough‘s departures from America’s Got Talent. According to their story, when Jay Leno was a guest on the show and allegedly made a racist joke about Koreans, Gabrielle told producers to report the incident to human resources. She also urged producers to cut a white contestant impersonating Beyonce from the lineup. Sources also say Union and Hough received excessive notes on their physical appearance.

-Why is Drake texting Billie Eilish? She’s 17.

-Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi commented on Martin Scorsese‘s controversial Marvel statements: “Maybe it’s too colorful for him.”

Ira is in Toronto, which means his appearance on The Social was perfectly timed for him to drag Justin Timberlake.

-I finally caught up to Sunday’s episode of Watchmen and gah, that show is doing extraordinary things. I’ve liked pretty much every episode (we’re six into its 9-ep run), but this latest one somehow managed to expertly tackle race, class, white-washing and childhood trauma in eye-poppingly creative ways. Every episode seems to spin off a ton of think pieces (as they should), and I’m especially interested in what black critics/writers are saying about it. Here are a few I’m following (if there are others, let me know!):  Soraya Nadia McDonald at The Undefeated, Angelica Jade BastiĂ©n at Vulture, Melanie McFarland at Salon, Micah Peters at The Ringer, Joelle Monique at AV Club.

-This interview with the co-writer of the episode is also worth your time.

Summer Walker responded to backlash after showing up three hours late to her Toronto concert and leaving fans waiting out in the cold Monday night.

Miley Cyrus is on vocal rest after undergoing surgery, so expect her IG stories to be 76% less problematic than usual.

-Season two of YOU premieres on Netflix on Dec 26, so you can avoid your family this holiday season by being conflicted about your feelings for a serial killer.

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans did an Actors on Actors interview, in which they talked about Avengers, A Marriage Story, Knives Out and Scorsese’s comments about Marvel.

-Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman suggested Scorsese’s timing of his comments is suspect. “You’ve got to think about when he’s saying it. He’s saying it when he’s possibly campaigning for an award. He’s saying it at a time when he’s making a Netflix movie, so that’s how eyes get on his film, and it’s not going to be in the cinemas—it’s not going to be seen the best way.”

-NPR’s Linda Holmes has assembled a guide to more than 60 new holiday movies coming to TV this season. She’s doing god’s work.

T.I.‘s daughter has unfollowed him and her family. After his comments last week about her hymen, this seems like a solid choice.

Beanie Feldstein‘s comedy How to Build a Girl (which I really liked at TIFF) was bought by IFC.

-10 days after AppleTV Plus launched, the head of scripted programming is leaving. Peak streaming is going fine, guys.

-Meanwhile, Disney+ launches tomorrow, and no one seems to know what to do. (I’m sure millions of people downloading an app and logging in for the first time all at once will go incredibly smoothly.)

-The order of the rankings on these types of lists always bug me, but overall The AV Club’s compilation of the 100 best shows of the 2010s is pretty spot on.

-Have you read Daisy Jones & the Six yet? Get on it before Amazon’s adapted series comes out.

-I love that Blumhouse is doing so well, but man all of their movie trailers give me the scares. Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Michael Peña, and Portia Doubleday star in Fantasy Island.
