Chris Evans getting in on the Stanley Tucci love is adorable.

-Eek. Ellen Pompeo is usually pretty woke but this video that’s been circulating today is a bad look.

Halle Berry says she nearly died on the set of 2002’s Die Another Day. “I am supposed to be trying to be all sexy with a fig — and then I end up choking on it. And [Pierce Brosnan] had to get up and do the Heimlich. So not sexy, so not sexy. He was there for me, and he will always be one of my favorite people in the whole world.”

-I’m pretty done with Star Wars IP for awhile, but good on Russian Doll’s Leslye Headland for developing a SW series at Disney Plus.

-I haven’t loved Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, mostly because the characters in the book were very understated which made their systemic white privilege so insidious whereas in the show Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are chewing through scenery like every line will be part of their Emmy reel. But the finale (which veers widely from the book’s ending) was quite affecting.

-The end of Empire — which was forced to wrap up two episodes earlier than planned when the pandemic shut down production — did well in the ratings. Meanwhile, Taraji P. Henson told EW: “As an artist, to not be able to finish something that you started, that hurts me. I feel incomplete. I don’t ever start something and don’t complete it. And so, for me, it’s deep; I have to finish, or this will haunt me for the rest of my life and career.”

-I kind of love that Pink is crowd-sourcing all of her baking dilemmas.

-Film Twitter is full of bad takes, and the one that circulated yesterday about There Will Be Blood was a doozy. Don’t let film bros make you hate a movie you like. But also, don’t hate on it just because film bros love it.

Mandy Patinkin‘s son quizzing his parents on texting abbreviations is exactly what I needed to watch today.

-Hollywood is starting to make plans for what TV and movie productions will look like once they re-open.

-A little over five percent of the 135 features originally selected for SXSW 2020 have opted in to stream on Amazon Prime from April 27-May 6.

-The novel Normal People didn’t knock my socks off the way it did with others, but Hulu’s adaptation is getting gushing reviews so maybe I’ll like the TV version better?

-Whew, this trailer for a new Netflix documentary hit me right in the heart guts.

Gal Gadot Talks Marriage and Motherhood in Vogue

Gal Gadot vogue

Gal Gadot covers Vogue, and though she doesn’t address her much-ridiculed “Imagine” video, she does talk about meeting her husband: “In the desert at this chakra/yoga retreat type of party. And he was too cool for school. Like, we were in the same group of friends but I didn’t know him and he didn’t know me. And something happened kind of from the first moment we started talking. When we got home, I was like, ‘Is this too early to call you? I want to have a date.’ Then we go out, and by the second date he told me, ‘I’m going to marry you. I’m going to wait for two years, but we’re going to get married.’ I was like, ‘Fine.'”

-In a new chat with Amy Schumer in Interview, Selena Gomez talks about how tabloids would spin it every time she stepped away from the spotlight. “The way the media has sometimes tried to explain things has made it sound really bad, when in reality there’s nothing wrong with the fact that I needed to go away or that I fell in love. I had to start opening up because people were taking away my narrative, and it was killing me.”

-Meanwhile, Selena just nabbed Tom Petty’s L.A. mansion for $5 million.

-Actors Manny Jacinto, Lucas Hedges, Glen Powell and more sent GQ photos of their fave outfits. Is it just me, or do they all seem to be quarantining with professional photographers?

Diddy hosted a celeb-packed dance-a-thon to raise money for healthcare workers and his ex Jennifer Lopez made an appearance (she still calls him “Puffy”). But Diddy was not here for Lizzo‘s performance and cut it off early. “It’s Easter Sunday. Let’s play something a little bit family friendly.” He later clarified: “When I stopped the music it was because it had a lot of curses in there. Not because she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world.”

-Speaking of charity IG Lives, Rihanna did one and warned fans to quit asking about new music. “If one of y’all motherf–kers asks me about the album one more time when I’m trying to save the world, unlike y’all president… on sight.” She’s not wrong.

Justin Timberlake is in Montana with his family, and says that parenting 24 hours a day is “not human.” They have one child.

-Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint and his longtime girlfriend, actress Georgia Groome, are expecting their first child together.

-The SNL at-home episode was odd, but I did really like the Zoom sketch.

Kristen Stewart‘s girlfriend, screenwriter Dylan Meyer, celebrated Stewart’s milestone 30th birthday with a sweet Instagram post, writing “It’s a short ride on this earth, spend your time with someone that inspires you to be the best version of yourself and lights your shit on fire.”

-In case you need a little Monday pick me up, here are the staged rowing photos that Lori Loughlin allegedly used to get her daughters into college.

-This article on the weaponized niceness of Ellen Degeneres is worth your time. In completely unrelated news, here are some very unstaged photos of her delivering PPE to a fire station.

-I watched the Tiger King reunion special so you don’t have to.

-My favorite part of this interview is when Ellen Pompeo is pretty blunt about how she preferred the early seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. “The show back then was just so, so, so, so good. I wish we had an appreciation for it then about how good it was. I don’t think we did, I don’t think any of us did. There was too much shit going on. It was too big, it was too hot, it was too fast and there was just so much going on in the beginning…I wish we had appreciated it for really how good it was, because — man, the show was fantastic back then.”

-Someone posted Black Widow’s alternate death scene from Avengers: Endgame. What a better way for her to go out.

-Man, some celebrities need to step away from Instagram Live during quarantine. Stephen Amell did a charity one last night and he was visibly drunk and slurry.

-During an interview for Meghan Markle‘s issue of Vogue, Dr. Jane Goodall reveals that Prince Harry hinted at the royal split last summer when she met baby Archie. “I made Archie do the Queen’s wave, saying, ‘I suppose he’ll have to learn this’. Harry said, ‘No, he’s not growing up like that.’ ”

One Direction fans are losing their poo at rumours of a possible reunion show.

-Here’s the trailer for season 2 of Dead to Me, which returns to Netflix May 8.

The Dixie Chicks Stage a Comeback

The Dixie Chicks allure

-The Dixie Chicks are on the cover of Allure, in which they talk about how speaking out against the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq during a 2003 concert basically killed their career for more than a decade. “I have no regrets, but the responsible part of me doesn’t want to put people through shit [again]. When I think back, it’s like that movie Sliding Doors, right? Where would we be today if I hadn’t said that? That’s interesting. I really don’t know if I would take it back,” says Natalie Maines.

-At least five men say they were catfished by Drag Race contestant Joey Gugliemelli (aka Sherry Pie), who posed as a casting director and led them to submit embarrassing audition tapes of themselves saying and doing degrading things. One of the young men said he even agreed to masturbate on camera as part of the audition process. Gugliemelli posted on Facebook: “I want to start by saying how sorry I am that I caused such trauma and pain and how horribly embarrassed and disgusted I am with myself. I know that the pain and hurt that I have caused will never go away and I know that what I did was wrong and truly cruel.”

-Oh boy, fans of Grey’s Anatomy do NOT seem happy with the way the show wrote off Alex Karev last night. The actor didn’t appear in any scenes but did some voiceovers reading letters his character sent which explained that he ***SPOILER ALERT: left to reunite with Katherine Heigl’s character Izzie, who was raising his kids that he didn’t know about.****  Beyond a few outliers, the response on Twitter seems decidedly unhappy.

-Meanwhile, Ellen Pompeo just wrote a tribute to Alex Karev  on Instagram — without ever mentioning costar Justin Chambers. I’m gonna need the tell-all book when this show wraps!

-The Hype House kids not knowing who Perez Hilton is tickles me.

Johnny Depp’s defamation trial against The Sun publisher is about to begin, and the judge has ordered him to turn over audio recordings and papers from his divorce proceeding with Amber Heard, so expect a lot of sad details of their stormy relationship to surface.

Tom Hanks plays a US Navy skipper who must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boats in the Greyhound trailer.
