Taylor Swift’s Holiday Home Movies

Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm so it makes sense that she wrote a holiday song called “Christmas Tree Farm.” The video, released just days after she wrote the tune, features home movies of her as a kid and is undeniably adorable.

-Queer Eye’ star Jonathan Van Ness is the first non-female to grace a Cosmo cover since Boy George.

Jennifer Garner showed off her giant Christmas tree. “I’m not sure this is the tree we picked out. It’s a little aggressive.” (Also, she says ‘foyer’ weird.)

-Variety went deep with Billy Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell for their new cover story.

-I friggin’ love that Robbie Amell did interviews for his new movie at Pai because it’s his fave Toronto restaurant. He’s not wrong. (Great cameo by Chef Nuit, too.)

James Corden and Max Greenfield made an aspiring screenwriter’s dreams come true in a Starbucks.

-My god, just shut down every version of Big Brother immediately. This show is a trainwreck in every country.

-In honour of Marriage Story hitting Netflix today, Vulture did a feature on how Adam Driver looks ridiculously tall in that movie. (“What we are gathered here today to discuss is how much fun it is to see Adam Driver, big boy, squeeze himself into small things.”)

-Wait, now Amy Sedaris is in The Mandalorian? I’m gonna have to watch this sucker, aren’t I?

-This is a very good, very deep dive into the reporting style of the National Enquirer.

-All the brands who replied to this Netflix tweet nailed it. (Scroll through the photos for responses.)

Tom Holland may have saved the Spider-Man movies by drunkenly calling Disney head Bob Iger at a pub in tears. “I’m like three pints in, I haven’t eaten much…I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end.”

Keri Russell and Oscar Isaac are the real dream duo on this promo tour.

-Here’s a lovely moment of Jodie Whittaker getting a silver disc for her cover of Coldplay’s Yellow.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne star in the trailer for The Aeronauts, a film that got lukewarm reviews on the festival circuit.


Can Superheroes Save Us? Please?!


-Today is a pretty crappy day, but EW releasing a CW superheroes cover makes it *slightly* less of a vortex of suck.

-Hollywood reacted to the election on Twitter. (Spoiler alert: famous people are bummed too.)  Except for Azealia Banks, who continues to be a garbage person.

Michael Moore warned us all.

-At least Danielle Moodie-Mills’ amazing commentary during CBC’s election coverage has gone viral.

-ABC used last night’s mass meltdown to quietly drop the news that it has cancelled Conviction. It was a terrible show, but I feel bad for Hayley Atwell (who I saw yesterday on her way to the Toronto set — guess that won’t be happening anymore.)

-In happier news, The Hollywood Reporter released its 23rd annual Next Gen list. I don’t know most of these people. I’m old.

-Here is a photo of Idris Elba wearing the hell out of peacoat. It’s like he knew we’d need this today.

-Well, this sucks. The cute little kid from Lion (who is far and away the best thing about that movie) has been denied a visa to attend the LA and NYC premieres.

Mariah Carey and James Packer‘s prenup sounded super romantic: “No item of jewelry and/or personal adornment costing over $250,000 will be deemed a gift unless accompanied by, or promptly followed by, a writing specifically stating, ‘This is my gift to you.'”

-I chat about Prince Harry‘s smackdown of the UK press in today’s Toronto Star.

Eddie Redmayne says he ruined his Kylo Ren audition because he just couldn’t stop himself from using a ridiculous Darth Vader voice. (“I was trying again and again with different versions of my kind of “koohh paaaah” [Darth Vader breathing sound] voice. And after like ten shots she’s like, “You got anything else?” I was like, “No.”)

-I only got 41/50 on Vulture’s Gilmore Girls superfan quiz and I don’t even know who I am anymore.

-A legal expert tries to explain  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s custody battle strategies.

-Not surprisingly, Kanye West reportedly remains protective of Kim Kardashian and doesn’t want her to rush back into the public eye after her ordeal.

Charlize Theron says Hollywood ageism is just a “cliche,” saying “Now that I’m 41 I work much more than 20 years ago.” Well, isn’t that nice for her?

-Am I the only one who’s spent an inordinate amount of time today watching Coach Taylor and Buffy inspirational speeches?


Tom Hiddleston Strips Down To His Underwear For W



-Clearly, it’s a total coincidence that Tom Hiddleston has a underwear spread in W magazine the week after he because a household name. The universe is just weird that way, guys.

-The news about Anton Yelchin’s tragic death just got even more tragic: his car was reportedly part of a voluntary recall due to rollaway risk.

-Meanwhile, Anton‘s costars continue to express their disbelief and grief, including Susan Sarandon and Felicity Jones (who starred with him in Like Crazy, a movie I adore).

Tatiana Maslany makes the case for moving to Canada if Trump wins. “We’ve got double-double coffee. It’s a straight-up laxative!”

-Finally, here’s the trailer for HBO’s Westworld. Even though it’s been twice-delayed, it actually looks pretty damn good.

The Rock hadn’t eaten candy since 1989 — until Jimmy Fallon tempted him. And then things got a little cray.

Miley‘s trolling us again, y’all.

-This interview with Fresh Off The Boat’s Constance Wu kind of made me fall in love with her a little bit.

-I stopped watching How To Get Away With Murder ages ago, but the bloopers are still fun.

-Last night’s Game of Thrones was soo good –but also kind of not? Visually, that might have been the coolest thing I’ve ever seen on TV (and this interview with the director on the technical aspects of the battle shoot is impressive), but it all ended up feeling kind of empty. I’m not sure I agree with this critique that it didn’t have enough stakes — mostly because I’m sick of TV shows assuming death automatically makes for the best drama — but it is interesting that almost every critic I follow didn’t exactly give last night’s episode a glowing review.

-Everyone who wasn’t freaking out about GoT last night on Twitter was freaking out about the Penny Dreadful season finale — and that was even before they found out it was actually the series finale.

-Congrats to Eddie Redmayne and his wife, who just welcomed their first child.

Beyoncé and Jay Z just bought a $93 million mansion, so they’re not allowed to appear in Us Weekly’s “celebs are just like us!” feature for at least 3 months.

Kelly Clarkson’s Facebook Lives might be the most adorable Facebook Lives ever.

-Speaking of adorable, here’s a clip of Baby Dory from Finding Dory.

-I wasn’t ready for how brutal Orange Is The New Black this season is. If you haven’t been spoiled yet, get off Twitter. Get off Twitter now!

-In happier OITNB news, Samira Wiley will play Gretchen’s therapist on You’re The Worst. This is the best!

-A whole lotta Broadway stars released an A-list ‘What the World Needs Now Is Love’ cover to benefit the victims of Orlando and their families.

-Meanwhile, the Walking Dead, The Flash and Arrow stars are going to appear at a special fan convention in Orlando, with all proceeds going to the victims’ families.

-Speaking of The Flash, Grant Gustin just confirmed they’re doing the Flashpoint storyline (which, as my coworker explained to me in excruciating detail, involves an alternate timeline in which Bruce Wayne was killed instead of his parents, his dad became Batman and his mom became The Joker). Fine, but just keep that wibbly wobbly time crap away from Arrow.

Alexander Skarsgard and Theo James swear, get shirtless, and eat popsicles sexily in the War On Everyone trailer. I don’t know if this is going to jump start Alex’s career after Tarzan inevitably flops.

Looking was a little gem of a TV show that was canceled too soon. I never really believed HBO when they said they would wrap up the story with a movie but they just released the first trailer! Don’t mind me; my eyeballs are drowning.
