Reese Witherspoon Gets Goofy

reese witherspoon vanity fair

Reese Witherspoon‘s Vanity Fair cover photo almost seems like an outtake — but I kind of love it. The actress said of the pic on Instagram: “When I first saw this cover, I thought, ‘Oh my goodness… what a goofball!’ But here I am captured, probably snort-laughing, in all my goofy glory!”

-In the interview, Reese talks about the #MeToo movement and what it was like as a child actor working with adults: “Bad things happened to me. I was assaulted, harassed. It wasn’t isolated. I recently had a journalist ask me about it. She said, Well, why didn’t you speak up sooner? And I thought, that’s so interesting to talk to someone who experienced those things and then judge them for the way they decide to speak about them. You tell your story in your own time when you’re ready.”

-Speaking of great covers, Harry Styles covers Beauty Papers in nothing but Gucci fishnets.

-During isolation, Miley Cyrus is hosting a “talk show” every day on Instagram Live and today’s guest was Demi Lovato.

Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams have teamed up on Instagram to recruit celebs to read stories in support of children who are locked out of school.

-From offering safety and hand-washing tips to recommending which shows to binge watch, stars are flooding social media with tips to get through the crisis.

John Legend did a #TogetherAtHome concert on Instagram Live today, and announced the other musicians set to perform via livestream include Miguel, Jhené Aiko, Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello and Charlie Puth.

Vanessa Hudgens is walking back the comments she made on an Instagram Live yesterday, saying they were “taken out of context.” She had said: “Um, yeah, ’til July sounds like a bunch of bulls–t. I’m sorry, but like, it’s a virus, I get it, like, I respect it, but at the same time I’m like, even if everybody gets it, like yeah, people are going to die, which is terrible but like, inevitable?”

Emma Stone has reportedly had to postpone her wedding, which was supposed to take place this weekend in LA.

-Everything about this crisis is terrible — except for this story: Jared Leto says he just came back from 12 days in silent meditation in the desert and had no idea what was happening.  Way to stay on brand, bud.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively announced they are donating $1 million to Feed America and Food Banks Canada.

Tom Cruise is back to shooting the new Mission Impossible movie, social distancing be damned.

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are my favourite celebrity couple and this just kicked it to a whole new level.

-Meanwhile, while doing press for Little Fires Everywhere Joshua said he “can’t wait to meet his baby girl.”

-Birds of Prey is the next big movie being released early on video on demand. Keep it coming, Hollywood!

Dylan Sprouse stars in the Banana Split trailer, about two girls who bond when one stars dating the other’s ex.

Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama Named People of the Year

Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama all grace People magazine’s People of The Year issue. Swift talks about learning to deflect rude questions (“The more women are able to voice their discomfort in social situations, the more it becomes the social norm that people who ask the questions at parties like ‘When are you going to start a family?’ to someone as soon as they turn 25 are a little bit rude. It’s good that we’re allowed to say, ‘Hey, just so you know, we’re more than incubators'”), Aniston says she remains open to love (“Even when it’s scary, even when it hurts. It’s always going to be worth it”), Lopez talks about wanting more kids (“I don’t know that it’s in God’s plan but I would like to try. I’m so open to it!”), and Obama recalls getting “a little emotional” when dropping off Sasha at college (“We were there, just like most parents, helping her unpack and make her dorm room feel like home”).

-Meanwhile, Taylor Swift wrote a Christmas song over the weekend — and it’ll be released tonight. “I know this is pretty wild but I’ve just written a Christmas song.”

Emma Stone is engaged to SNL writer Dave McCary, who she’s been dating for over two years. I dig her pearl engagement ring.

-It’s very weird that Justin Timberlake broke his silence and apologized for being spotted getting flirty with his costar nearly two weeks after the photos first surfaced. Everyone had pretty much forgotten about it before he dragged it back into the spotlight. It’s also weird that he doesn’t apologize to his costar, who social media deemed a homewrecker. He does, however, manage to squeeze in a plug for their new movie, so I guess there’s that?

Jason Derulo is still talking about the fact that Instagram took down his dick pic — and wants us all to know that he was only “semi-aroused…an arousal looks different. It’s a different vibe. It’s a different beast. It leans more to the front, you know what I mean?” I can’t believe this story won’t die.

-The trailer for the new season of Legends of Tomorrow features a Mister Rogers spoof. God, I love those weirdos.

Harry Styles showed off the vinyl set for his sophomore solo album Fine Line, and the liner notes feature a completely nude photo of the singer. So I guess we’re all buying record players, huh?

Tim Allen was on The View last week and complained about political correctness. “I grew up on Richard Pryor; you can’t even go back and talk about the book he wrote. You know, what I got to do sometimes sometimes is explain – which I hate – in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words. So as long as you know my intent… I still get people who say, ‘Just don’t say it.'” Listen to those people, Buzz Lightyear.

-Is anyone having a hotter streak than Florence Pugh right now? The only person I can think of that comes close is Lakeith Stanfield.

-A disguised Alanis Morissette and Jimmy Fallon took to the New York City subway to busk. People seemed to catch on pretty quickly it was them.

-This is a very lovely joint interview with Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. They talk about costarring together (“It starts out as a very pragmatic thing. You have the kids, the kids are getting bigger, and you don’t want to spend the time apart”), and how they’re currently living in Trinity-Bellwoods (which Cannavale calls the Brooklyn of Toronto).

Penn Badgley has some strong thoughts about Los Angeles in the YOU season two teaser.

-The second trailer for Mulan has landed.

Julia Garner stars in the trailer for the Weinstein-based thriller The Assistant, playing a composite character based on public records, documents, and original interviews.

Jennifer Lopez Is a Hustler

Jennifer Lopez is on the cover of Variety, in which she talks about American Idol (“Everybody was like, ‘Don’t do this. Your career will be over, and they won’t offer you any movies.’ I was like, ‘The truth is, I’m not getting offered a whole bunch of movies, so what are they not going to offer me?'”), how Alex Rodriguez supports her (“He loves being at every show that he can be at. I go to all his baseball games”), and what she’s like as a boss (“I’m firm. I’m not a yeller or a screamer. I think nobody likes to disappoint me, because I get very quiet. I’m also relentless. I don’t have hours”).

-Also, this is a great clip of JLo talking about accidentally making Constance Wu bleed on the Hustlers set. (I love that Cardi B interrupts her costars with “Wait a minute, actresses!”)

-This is a good Taylor Swift interview (though I’m bummed that the writer describes her Nashville apartment ans “an Etsy fever dream” and there’s no photos).

-This weekend’s D23 Expo dumped a ton of new Disney news, including footage from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (Dark Rey!), our first look at Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil, Black Panther II will come out on May 6, 2022 and Kit Harington has joined the cast of The Eternals.

Tom Holland addressed the Sony-Marvel split at the event, saying “It’s been a crazy week, but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you 3,000.”

-Some of the most exciting announcements came from Disney+, the new streaming service (launching in Canada for $8.99/month). News of their shows — which will drop weekly instead of all at once — included announcements of a Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight live-action series, confirmation that Kat Dennings and Randall Park will reprise their previous MCU roles in WandaVision alongside Kathryn Hahn, news that Hilary Duff reprise her role as Lizzie McGuire, a new High School Musical series is coming, and the reveal that Jeff Goldbum (who I met this weekend and will never stop giggling about) is getting his own show.

-The first round of SNL hosts have been announced. That Phoebe Waller-Bridge / Taylor Swift night should be something else.

Kaitlynn Carter attended Miley CyrusVMAs rehearsal on Monday.

-This is a lovely Kirsten Dunst cover story.

-I cannot believe that E!Online ran their annual TV’s Top Leading Man poll and Can Yaman (the guy from the Turkish soap I’m obsessed with) beat out everyone else. I didn’t know so many other people watched it?! I feel so seen!! (Here it is if you want to also be obsessed.)

-This article about a writer who spent several months of my life and over $1,000 on Goop products is worth your time. It goes beyond the surface to examine how Goop uses health anxiety to attract aspirational customers. And it’s really funny.

-A teaser trailer and poster dropped over the weekend for the upcoming Breaking Bad film, dubbed El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie. It will bow on Netflix Oct. 11, air on AMC later on, and focus on Aaron Paul‘s Jesse Pinkman. “It’s a chapter of Breaking Bad that I didn’t realize that I wanted,” Paul told The NY Times.

Natalie Portman plays an astronaut who has a tough time re-adjusting when she returns to Earth in Lucy in the Sky, which costars Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman and Dan Stevens.
