Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge Covers Vogue

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Vogue
Ethan James Green, Vogue,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a delight in the new issue of Vogue. In the interview, she talks about cutting abortion law comments from her SNL monologue (“Because if you rant and rave, if you try and make a noise, you’ll be labelled noisy. You have to be careful of that. You have to find ways to protest”), her drink of choice (“The gimlet came into my life about a year and a half ago. I have really always wanted a cocktail that you order with total confidence; you know, that thing that you order and everyone’s like, Holy shit, she knows what she’s doing with her entire life”), and why you stop sharing as much with your friends as you get older (“I think the first half of your life, you’re trying to find out who you are, and you’re kind of knocking yourself against things, and testing things the whole time, to help kind of sculpt yourself. Then later, when you’ve got as close to sculpted as possible, you’re like, Don’t touch anything, in case it changes me”).

-Speaking of good magazine covers, Katie Holmes covers two this month (the December 2019 issues of Elle UK and SHAPE) and she refused to acknowledge the Tom Cruise years — even in style retrospectives.

-This is sad but not surprising: a new Britney Spears documentary features an interview with the salon owner who witnessed her infamous head shaving incident. The owner claims that Spears’s bodyguards were bribed by the paparazzi for her location and to continue to open the blinds of the salon, allowing a photographer hiding in the bushes to snap photos of their charge.

-This interview with TI about how he obsessively monitors the state of his 18-year-old daughter’s hymen is horrific — and really, really medically stupid. (Dr. Jennifer Gunter has a great thread about all the ways TI is wrong.) This doctor should be have his license revoked.

Jenny Slate‘s proposal story is very cute.

Whitney Houston‘s best friend Robyn Crawford wrote a new memoir, in which she talks about how they knew they had to suppress their relationship. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult…She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt.”

Jennifer Aniston revealed why she joined social media, saying “People are already in my panty drawers all the time. And I want them out of my panty drawers. But now I can decide which pair to show them.” And here I thought it was because she was contractually obligated to promote her new Apple show.

Drake is reportedly getting close to Kylie Jenner, according to People. (E!News‘ sources say it’s not serious which, yeah, we could have figured that one out on our own.)

Hilarie Burton shared a photo of her wedding day with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, which featured his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who officiated the ceremony.

-ABC is rebooting Revenge (a show I don’t think gets enough love) with a Latinx lead.

-Have some Stranger Things bloopers.

Chris Evans appears in the new episode of Billy on the Street! This is not a drill!

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.
