–Sophie Turner is on the latest cover of Elle. She talks about the controversial Game of Thrones finale (“You can’t make every fan happy”), and her low expectations for her first date with Joe Jonas (“I thought he would be such a dick. I took all my guy friends with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I was worried he could be a catfish or—I don’t know what…He didn’t bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn’t contrived. It wasn’t small talk—it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable”).
-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer covers British Vogue, and talks about finding love: “I’m very much in it. I’d been single for a while and just kind of going with the flow and doing my thing. That’s the thing, isn’t it? When you’re relaxed and letting the universe do what it’s doing, things kind of fall into place. Which is very much what happened.”
-Despite Jessica Biel being spotted without her wedding ring a few days ago, Justin Timberlake made a gushy birthday post for her on Insta today, writing “Happy Birthday to the LOVE of my life… A new adventure every day and a treasure to me. I can’t wait to share many more of these with you.”
–Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a packed schedule in the UK this week, but their 10-month-old is reportedly staying in Canada with his nanny.
-According to The Sun (so take it with a giant grain of salt), The Queen summoned Harry for a four hour chat about his future on Sunday, telling him: “You are much loved and will always be welcomed back.”
–Elisabeth Moss, who doesn’t like to publicly talk about Scientology, managed to deftly dodge a question about whether or not she was ever engaged to Tom Cruise.
-After complaining about her recording contract on Instagram earlier this week, Megan Thee Stallion filed a lawsuit against 1501 Certified Entertainment, alleging — among other things — that the label leaked a story that broke early last month about her past arrest.
-I really liked this article on how Veronica Mars lost sight of itself in its last season — and how that’s best encapsulated in how it treated Weevil. It’s been months and I still see angry tweets about that show. They had such a dedicated fandom and they’ll never get it back, no matter what the future holds.
-On Ellen today, she asked Justin Bieber how many kids he wanted and he said “It’s up to Hailey because it’s her body.” I mean, that’s nice in theory but he should definitely have an opinion on this.
-Good on Radheyan Simonpillai for questioning Run This Town’s director and cast about erasing Robyn Doolittle from the Rob Ford story.
-Following yesterday’s explosive rape allegation against Timothy Hutton, his Fox show Almost Family was cancelled. The decision to not renew the show was likely made before this (the network didn’t order additional episodes and recently burned off the remaining ones on Saturdays), but were it not for the rape accusation, Fox likely would have waited until the upfronts in May to release the cast from their contracts and make it official.
-I stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy years ago (and judging from my Twitter TL, it’s going through a serious rut right now) but I’m happy that Beanie Feldstein got to live out her dream.
-I watched a couple of episodes of Star Trek: Picard and didn’t keep up with it, but these photos of him reuniting with Riker and Troi are very sweet and almost make me want to jump back in.
-I’m still not done Love Is Blind so I don’t know how everyone ends up, but Lauren was the only person on that show who wasn’t even a little bit terrible so I’m glad she’s happy.
-Also, there’s a reunion special airing Thursday and Netflix released a clip from it. Amber‘s gonna Amber.
-Not up for debate is Better Things (which Pamela Aldon writes, directs and stars in), which returns this week. Season four is getting glowing reviews. I want to shout from the rooftops how good this show is!
-Star Wars continues to retroactively explain The Rise of Skywalker, months after the film was released. The new novelization of the movie reveals how Palpatine came back. Once again for those in the back: if your plot or character motivations were this important, MAKE IT CLEAR IN THE MOVIE.
-The only people who should be wearing masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are people showing symptoms of the disease, health care workers, and those caring for people with Covid-19 at home. But celebrities’ Insta posts are helping to fuel the dangerous misconception that everyone needs them.
–Mark Ruffalo plays twins in the trailer for HBO’s upcoming adaptation of I Know This Much To Be True.
