Felicity Huffman Is Already Free

Felicity Huffman is out of jail early after serving 11 days of her 2-week sentence. (Apparently it’s normal policy for inmates who are set to be released on weekends to get out on the Friday instead.)

-Oh god. Drake and Kylie Jenner were apparently spotted flirting. There’s not enough vodka in the world for me to process this.

-After many false starts, Kanye West’s latest full-length album, Jesus Is King, finally dropped this afternoon and it’s pretty damn underwhelming.

-Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian says their 6-six-year daughter is being “heavily blocked” from wearing makeup by Kanye. I never say this, but I agree with Kanye.

-CW just ordered full season pickups for Batwoman and Nancy Drew. I tried one episode of ND and it was too Riverdale-y for me, but good for them.

-No one has ever looked happier about being arrested than Ted Danson.

-Will & Grace is wrapping up, but Megan Mullally is reportedly set to miss multiple episodes, giving more weight to those rumours of a feud with Debra Messing.

-This New Yorker profile of Adam Driver is great — especially the part where he encounters the phrase “toxic masculinity” for seemingly the first time.

-A judge refused to remove Brad Pitt from the lawsuit over Hurricane Katrina victims’ deteriorating homes.

-I love both Keri Russell and Jesse Plemons but I will never, ever be able to make it through Antlers based on this trailer.

-Hey, I kickstarted this movie! Do I get a free screening? A poster? I’ve kickstarted so many pop culture things, I’ll take a bucket of half-eaten popcorn at this point.

 

Charlize Theron Says Being Unmarried Is “Innately My Truth”

Charlize Theron Glamour Magazine’s 2019 Women Of The Year

Charlize Theron is already getting raves for her turn in Bombshell and the promo tour hasn’t even fully kicked off yet. She’s in Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year issue, in which she talks about her single status (“I haven’t been in a relationship for a very long time. I never wanted to get married. Those are things that are not hard for me because they’re innately my truth. I find people are somewhat perplexed by that, and also more with women, right?”) and struggling to get recognition as a producer (“I think there’s this conclusion that sometimes gets made, like, ‘It can’t possibly be a f**king actress that put this thing together'”).

-Bless Town & Country for putting Laura Dern‘s “I will not NOT be rich” line from Big Little Lies on her cover. Talk about knowing their target audience.

Drake threw himself a birthday party in LA and Rihanna showed up. Hmmm…..

-Of all the ‘established directors criticizing Marvel’ takes, this one actually has merit. Pedro Almodóvar says superhero movies aren’t sexy enough. “And sexuality doesn’t exist for superheroes. They are neutered. There is an unidentified gender, the adventure is what’s important.” I also really like this thread about how the studios’ increased obsession with targeting all four quadrants has turned the most popular movies for adults and films into the same thing.

-It’s weirdly comforting that Paul Rudd and Conan O’Brien remain committed to their long-standing talk show appearance bit.

Hailey Baldwin might have shaded her hubby’s ex Selena Gomez. Or maybe not. Be better at pettiness, celebrities!

-I’m intrigued by Netflix’s new show Daybreak, mostly because the premise of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off meets zombies sounds fun, and @ira is a writer on it. The reviews are good.

-Speaking of pop culture critics who’ve become TV writers, this is a great NYT profile on Andy Greenwald, who went from critic to showrunner.

Anne Hathaway silencing the room by saying her favourite romcom is Gone Girl is a mood.

Rose McGowan is suing Harvey Weinstein, claiming he unleashed a cadre of “fixers” to make sure her rape allegations against him weren’t revealed in her memoir.

-The fact that these two little moments in the Breaking Bad movie were both improvised makes me so happy.

-I dig that whenever Kelly Clarkson is a fan of something (like Netflix’s Lucifer), she just manages to insert herself into it. I would do the same with her power.

-Patti LuPone continues to give zero f**ks during every interview and I’m living for it. On Andrew Lloyd Webber: “How could he talk about Evita? The whole thing is sung. He’s a jerk. He’s a sad sack. He is the definition of sad sack.”

Jared Leto’s frustration that Warner Bros. was moving ahead with Todd Phillips’s Joker was so great that he not only complained to his agents at CAA, who also represent Phillips, but asked his music manager to call the leader of Warners’ parent company. Bwahahaha!

Garrett Hedlund star in the first trailer for Burden, inspired by real members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Shia LaBeouf Says He Wrestled Tom Hardy Naked

Shia LaBeouf told a story about wrestling Tom Hardy while naked that has to be heard to be believed.

-One day after Nick Carter filed a restraining order against his younger brother Aaron, court documents reveal that Aaron allegedly told their sister he “thinks about killing babies and has thought about killing [Nick’s pregnant] wife, Lauren.”

-A heavily bearded George Clooney appeared at a news conference in London to call for ending human rights abuses in South Sudan after presenting findings of a new report from his watchdog group, The Sentry.

Tom Welling will reprise his Smallville role in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths. At some point in the very near future, it will be easier to list who *won’t* be appearing in this thing.

Celine Dion is not impressed by rumours that Drake wants to get her face tattooed on his body. “Please Drake, I love you very much. Can I tell you something? Don’t do that. You can write me love letters, you can send me autographs for my kids, you can come and visit. I can have you home for lunch or dinner, we can go for a drink, we can sing together. Whatever you want to do. I can talk to your mother. Whatever you want, but please…”

-Yay for Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy, who just landed an overall deal with ABC Studios. I will always remember him as the host of the first after show I’d ever seen — for The Hills, of all things.

-I binged Netflix’s Unbelievable (not a great idea, considering the subject matter) and I couldn’t get over how empathetic it was. All of the performances were great, including Toni Collette and Kaitlyn Dever, but I think Merritt Wever in particular is doing something special here. She so quietly powerful.

Connie Britton doesn’t think a Friday Night Lights reboot is a good idea. Preach!!

-A reboot I can get behind is The Nanny with Cardi B.

This video of Jennifer Lopez learning her routines for Hustlers is insane.

Sarah Silverman says “cancel culture” is “a mutated McCarthy era, where any comic better watch anything they say.” Uh, hard pass. Comedians can say whatever they want — but they also shouldn’t be excused from the consequences.

-Here’s the first trailer Alfre Woodard‘s Clemency. Just Mercy was the death row film that got the most amount of buzz at TIFF, but this one has stuck with me since seeing it.
