Prince George Turns 7

Kate Middleton and Prince William shared two adorable new photographs of Prince George in honour of his seventh birthday. I love the one in the camo shirt!

Prince Harry‘s team is calling claims he mishandled Royal funds “deeply offensive.”

Kim Kardashian posted an IG story about Kanye West, citing his bipolar diagnosis and asking for compassion and empathy. It was incredibly well-written and sympathetic, but this part made me fear that she’s still onboard with his presidential run: “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

-People magazine is reporting that both Kim and Kanye are considering divorce. E! News says the pair have been spending time apart.

Jamie Lynn Spears defended her sister Britney after a commenter posted about her “obvious mental illness.” Jamie replied: “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS.”

-According to Us Weekly, Ellen DeGeneres’ staffers are “loving” that people are coming forward with claims she’s not nice.

Dave Grohl penned an article for The Atlantic on how teachers need to be protected when schools reopen.

-Meanwhile, Dave‘s daughter can sing!

This is a good piece on how Dave Franco praising three ’90s romcoms (all by white filmmakers) and talking about how he wants to “elevate” the genre ignores the BIPOC voices already refreshing this genre. I don’t know how you can look at the romcom resurgence of the last few years — with movies like Always Be My Maybe, The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, and Crazy Rich Asians — and think you need to jump in and make it better.

-In an interview with Katy Perry, Howard Stern brought up Orlando Bloom‘s nude paddleboating pics from a few years ago. She told him: “It was Europe! We had had a pretty chill time and everywhere we looked, it was like ‘Everybody was naked! It was Europe! It was Italy!’ and I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”

-Speaking of Orlando Bloom, he confirmed that his missing dog has passed away.

Jessica Chastain, Eva Longoria, Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Garner, America Ferrera, Serena Williams and Natalie Portman are part owners of LA’s We Are Angel City women’s soccer team.

Jennifer Garner got teary-eyed as she worried about how the pandemic is affecting her children in an emotional video.

-Vox’s Emily VanDerWerff talked to over 50 fans of The Office, as well as folks who worked on the show, to find out why the sitcom endures.

-I’m iffy with Aaron Sorkin joints, but these photos of his new movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 has me intrigued, mostly because the cast is so stacked: Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, and Jeremy Strong.

Donald Glover is reportedly reprising his role as Lando Calrissian in a future Star Wars series for Disney+.

-I love this article on guys starting a romance book club. I never understood why more dudes don’t read romance; it’s basically a how to guide for what women want.

Romany Malco and Regina Hall star in Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison.

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?!

arrow-flash-supergirl-ew

-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?
