Jennifer Lawrence Jumps on the Bennifer T rain

Jennifer Lawrence was on a podcast when the Bennifer news broke and lost her mind just like the rest of us. “Breaking breaking breaking f*cking news!”

-Meanwhile, ARod’s latest Instagram post (which makes it look like he’s leaving empty seats at his dinner table for JLo and her kids) is embarrassing. Please continue.

Nicki Minaj called last year’s hit-and-run death of her father “the most devastating loss of my life.”

-Netflix is capitalizing on the success Bridgerton with a limited series that will tell Queen Charlotte’s origin story. It will be interesting to see if they actually lean into her race, since the main criticism of the series has been its handwaving away of racism.

Gillian Anderson will guest star on The Great, which might make me catch up on the show. I watched the first two episodes and liked it, and then promptly forgot about it.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Miranda Kerr and Katy Perry all trolled Orlando Bloom over his poncho photo. Wait until they realize the world is never going back to non-drawstring pants.

-Also, Orlando is now buddies with Prince Harry.

-Black-ish is coming to an end after eight seasons.

-I don’t watch Batwoman, but apparently the show has fumbled Ruby Rose’s departure.

-iCarly is back! The 13-episode season will pick up nearly 10 years after Nickelodeon’s original show ended.

-It feels like there’s a lot of new pop culture dropping this weekend — the Angelina Jolie’s firefighter movie on HBO Max, Amy AdamsWoman in the Window on Netflix (both getting a mediocre reception) and Ewan McGregor‘s Halston on Netflix (hated by critics) — but the only new thing that’s getting glowing reviews is Jean Smart‘s new comedy Hacks on HBO.

-I already never, ever want to hear the word “cheugy” again. Is Drew Barrymore cheugy? Are you? Is it over yet?

-NBC are giving the Golden Globes time to “do the work” and get their house in order before the confirm they won’t air the show anymore.

Ellen DeGeneres‘ farewell tour continues to be a disaster.

-Check out Jodie Turner-Smith in the first trailer for Channel 5’s Anne Boleyn.

Kevin Hart and Alfre Woodard are going to make you cry in the trailer for Netflix’s Fatherhood.

Olivia Rodrigo’s In The Driver’s Seat

-It’s a big week for Olivia Rodrigo. She finally met Taylor Swift IRL and now she’s on the cover of Billboard Magazine.

-Well, this is unexpected. John Mulaney and Olivia Munn are dating, says People.

-In other surprising couples news, Kat Dennings and Andrew W.K. confirmed that they are engaged.

-Are Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker the horniest famous couple? Their social media interactions point to “yes”.

Gal Gadot had a chance to redeem herself. She did not.

Josh Duhamel says he sent Armie Hammer an email after replacing him in Shotgun Wedding. “I know Armie a little bit, and when I knew I was gonna get the part, I emailed him and said, ‘Listen, I know you are going through it right now, I don’t like to get roles like this and I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and good luck, get through it.'” I wonder if he sent similarly supportive notes to Hammer’s alleged victims?

Tom Cruise is not apologizing for his rant on the Mission: Impossible 7 set: “I said what I said. There was a lot at stake at that point.”

Prince Harry appeared on Dax Shepard’s podcast and said he and Meghan Markle would pretend not to know one another when they went shopping in the U.K. in the early days of their relationship.

Colton Underwood says he was ‘blackmailed’ into coming out.

Chloé Zhao, Issa Rae and Emerald Fennell are among THR’s 2021 Women in Entertainment Power 100 list.

-I’m surprised NBC agreed to end This Is Us since it seems to be one of the few legitimate network hits left, but good for them for going out on their own terms.

-Yesterday Ellen DeGeneres alluded to cancel culture when she announced her show’s ending, and today she said that the toxic workplace complaints were “orchestrated”. She told the Today Show: “I really didn’t understand it. I still don’t understand it. It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated. People get picked on, but for four months straight for me. And then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment, when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is and what a happy place this is.” Right, because celebrities guests who pop in for two hours would have similar experiences as fulltime crew members.

-Meanwhile, her former employees are happy that she seems to be facing consequences.

-There’s talk that Tiffany Haddish might fill Ellen’s shoes.

John Barrowman has been removed from the Doctor Who Immersive Experience in the wake of allegations of inappropriate onset behavior.

-Another showrunner (this time the guy behind All Rise) reportedly made everyone’s life miserable before getting fired.

-I never thought I’d say this, but the long-delayed Friends reunion special might actually be worth the wait? It will feature guest stars David Beckham, Justin Bieber, BTS, James Corden, Cindy Crawford, Cara Delevingne, Lady Gaga, Kit Harington, Mindy Kaling, Tom Selleck, Reese Witherspoon, Malala Yousafzai and more. BTS alone will make it a ratings monster.

Jennifer Garner and Édgar Ramírez visited a migrant shelter at the U.S.-Mexico border.

-The Knives Out 2 cast keeps expanding. Yesterday we heard about Janelle Monáe, and today’s addition is Kathryn Hahn (who’s clearly going to be the murderer, ’cause it was Agatha all along).

Grimes says she was hospitalized for a panic attack after appearing on SNL.

-I’m assuming Channing Tatum has a social media manager who posted this comment on Jonah Hill‘s post, but it’s hilarious and he should take all the credit.

-A massive flagship Harry Potter store in New York City is being planned. Read the room, guys!

-I adored this look back at A Knight’s Tale, which turned 20.

Frances McDormand Under Wraps

Frances McDormand covers the new issue of Vogue, and I actually looked it up to see if she’s in the new Dune movie because otherwise this cover shoot makes no sense to me. She is not. In any case, she still deserves all the covers!

Emma Stone is heading to TV. She’ll star in the Safdie brothers’ The Curse, which has been formally ordered to series at Showtime. The series from the Uncut Gems duo is described as a genre-bending comedy that explores how an alleged curse disturbs the relationship of Stone’s character and her husband (Nathan Fielder) as they try to conceive a child.

-Merry Swiftmas! Prolific pop singer Taylor Swift announced this morning that she’s celebrating her birthday by dropping another surprise album tonight. Considering how many folklore songs ended up on my Spotify Wrapped playlist, I’m very much looking forward to this.

Ryan Reynolds got his mother to on an expletive-laden rant against Chris Hemsworth… but it’s all for charity.

Pedro Pascal says his performance in Wonder Woman 1984 was partially inspired by Nicolas Cage. “With Wonder Woman, [Gal Gadot and Kristen Wiig] are doing the action, baby, and I’m doing the schm-acting! I am hamming it up!”

Kelly Clarkson says her estranged husband, who was also her manager, defrauded her out of millions by charging exorbitant fees.

Ellen Degeneres revealed that she’s tested positive for covid, but so far her symptoms are very mild. The show has paused production until next year.

-Speaking of covid, Chris Evans was photographed doing his own covid swab…which seems weird.

-Dancing With The Stars’ judge Carrie Ann Inaba also tested positive.

-iCarly is being rebooted with the original stars because Hollywood has run out of ideas.

-Whoa. Girls star Allison Williams is going to lead a remake of the Canadian drama Being Erica.
