Emma Stone is Interviewed By Jennifer Lawrence for Elle

emma-stone-jennifer-lawrence-elle

-In her new Elle cover story, Emma Stone talks to BFF Jennifer Lawrence about social media (“I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them”), and panic attacks (“My mom always says that I was born with my nerves outside of my body. But I’m lucky for the anxiety, because it also makes me high-energy”). I’m glad this interview format is starting to get some flack (as Lainey says “is this becoming a trend? A sh-tty trend?”) Think of the best celebrity profiles you’ve read in the last couple of months, whether it was Taffy Brodesser-Akner on Gwyneth Paltrow, David Marchese on Quincy JonesE Alex Jung on Sandra Oh or Stephen Rodrick on Johnny Depp. There’s a level of distance and probing (be it rooted in admiration or skepticism) that you’re just not going to get from a BFF. As the Fug girls says, “having your friend interview you makes for a flabby and anemic profile at best.”

-In better celeb profiles, this GQ one on John Cho is great.  “You’re the only Asian not in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Did you miss the meeting?”

-Crazy Rich Asians is set to pocket $5.3 million in tonight’s screenings alone. Fingers crossed it makes back its $30M budget in the first 5 days!

-Meanwhile, here’s an explainer on the CRA actors you may not know much about (yet).

-Speaking of new rom coms coming this week that I can’t wait for, Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is getting great reviews! Vulture says its “witty and sweet” and calls it “summer’s best rom com”, Indiewire says it’s infused with “charm and empathy” and Pajiba calls it “fun and winsome…a total treat and a perfect pick for a night of Netflix and Girls Night in.”

Priyanka Chopra‘s engagement ring from Nick Jonas (that will never not be a weird thing to type) is on full display in a new Insta snap.

Taylor Swift spoke at her concert about the anniversary of her sexual assault Trial verdict: “I just wanted to say I’m sorry to anyone who ever wasn’t believed because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if somebody didn’t believe me when I said something had happened to me.”

-Outside of his court hearing, Liev Schrieber told reporters he did NOT assault a photographer. “I never touched him, I never touched his body with my body. I was pissed, but that was it. I have nothing else to say.”

Dane Cook hosted a  Q and A on Instagram and opened up about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, a 19-year-old singer who is 26 years younger than him. Have some bleach handy so you can scrub your brain clean after reading about it.

Chris Pratt is still talking about James Gunn being fired: “We all love James …but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy”. You know what’s nuts? Gunn seemed to instantly realize his mistake and was like “yup, i screwed up and I’m outtie.” It’s the stars of GoG that won’t let it go.

-In a new interview, Glenn Close commented on Scarlett Johansson‘s trans casting controversy: “People who are producing and directing properties like that need to go out of their way to get trans actors jobs. But they also should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”

-Wondering when your fave TV show returns this fall? I got ya.

-I don’t think anyone was really excited for Colin Jost and Michael Che to host the Emmys, but their latest interview really cemented it. Good job, guys!

-In a wide-ranging interview, Jim Carrey revealed he doesn’t have access to his own Twitter account and has at least three people (“just pals”) sign off on every post: “When you’re in my position, it’s a really smart thing to have a buffer.” This system needs to be adopted by every celebrity, STAT!

-This illustrated ode to The Americans’ wigs is fire.

-A week after splitting from Cheryl Cole, Liam Payne was photographed looking cozy with a model.

Bella Thorne‘s first foray into makeup is not going very smoothly. She’s shilling ridiculously expensive, tiny eyeshadow palettes that may or may not rip off a black-owned beauty brand.

-I think I enjoy reading about HBO’s Sharp Objects more than I enjoy actually watching it. This article on its editing is great, as is this weekly updated piece on all the hidden words in the show.

Viola Davis plots a heist in the latest trailer for Steve McQueen’s Widows.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead plays a stand-up with a complicated past in the All About Nina trailer.

Is Beyonce Pregnant Or Just Messing With Us?

Beyonce‘s belly bump watch just kicked into high gear thanks to this video from her new tour, in which she appears to cup her stomach. I dunno; she just had twins a year ago and she posed with a Corona just last week.

-In news that should surprise no one, Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a location manager on the City of Lies set. The lawsuit claims the actor screamed obscenities at the crew member and punched him twice in the ribs, then offered him $100,000 to punch back.

Robin Wright broke her silence about costar Kevin Spacey, making it clear she didn’t have a friendship with him beyond the House of Cards set. In her Today Show interview, she says “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups, where we would giggle. I didn’t really …I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”

-Also, costar Patricia Clarkson credits her for saving the show after the scandal. “Robin led all of this charge so that people would save their livelihoods, because when the show goes away, some people don’t get paid. I think it’s going to be a stunning, stunning new season and I’m thankful for it.”

-Is 24 the new age for celebrities to get engaged? And cripes, is that another pear-shaped diamond?!

Gal Gadot stopped by a children’s hospital in Virginia dressed like Wonder Woman and the photos are lovely.

-I really like Dwayne Johnson‘s response to those tough Baywatch reviews: “It’s not that critics didn’t like it. They … hated it. But to clarify, it’s not audience first, critics never. Critics love movies, and we’re all in this business together.”

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams wants a new trial to lower his $50K monthly child support bill.

-I don’t love the olive green Ralph Lauren dress that Meghan Markle wore to Prince Louis‘ christening today, but Princess Charlotte was always going to steal the show anyway.

Harvey Weinstein appeared in court and  pled not guilty to new sexual assault charges, and won’t face home confinement. Also, he’s apparently working as a paralegal on his own case.

-The new chief of Warner laid out his vision for HBO — and he basically wants to turn it into Netflix. This is so weird and misguided. HBO has an established and respected brand and tone; Netflix’s original content strategy just seems to be throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks without worrying about bloat or quality.

Drake‘s Scorpion is now the first album to reach 1 billion streams in a week. I’m happy for him; I just wish it was a better album.

-Also, Drake‘s new freestyle “Behind Barz” seems to be about Kanye West.

-I’m both impressed and not at all surprised that Lin-Manuel Miranda deals with mean people by being unfailingly cheerful until they feel so bad they end up apologizing.

Sacha Baron Cohen released a short preview of his new Showtime show Who Is America, which he says he’s been undercover secretly filming it for a year. In the clip, he gets Dick Cheney to autograph his “waterboarding kit.”

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy are currently shooting the IT sequel in Toronto, and her IG stories make it seem like they’re having a great time. They dined at Kasa Moto on Saturday (so close to my house!) and then she got him to demonstrate proper hand washing technique.

Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz star in the first trailer for The Favourite. (I love that they’re using the British spelling.) It’s from the director of The Lobster, a movie I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around.

Does Meghan Markle Suddenly Sound British?

-People seem to be really angry that Meghan Markle sounds like she’s starting to adopt a British accent, but I’m totally here for it!

Jennifer Lopez has sparked speculation that she and A-Rod are engaged after she posted a photo in which she is prominently showing off a ring.

-Speaking of new rings, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were spotted wearing matching bands, leading to rumours that they are promise rings. Remember the other kind of promise ring he used to wear? I sure do.

-For the first time in recent memory, Taylor Swift had a super low key fourth of July. Not even matching bathing suits? Oh, Tay-Tay.

Chris Brown was arrested in Florida following his concert (because apparently people still pay to see him?!) for a felony battery warrant stemming from an April 2017 incident at a Tampa night club in which Brown allegedly punched photographer, Bennie Louis Vines

-The LA Times says it’s the perfect time for Greta Gerwig’s version of Little Women. Maybe but I’m just SO BORED by the cast. They’re all great (Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Timothée Chalamet) but just so very predictable.

-It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks with Showtime for a new TV series — and he’ll be targeting the president, somehow.

-As someone who identifies as “washed,” I loved this article.

-Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie just came out as pansexual. “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her but I’m not opposed to a man because, to me, I like a person. Yeah I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care.”

-If the tracking is correct, Ant Man and The Wasp will buzz to $75 million-$85 million this weekend. (The first one opened to $57.2 million.)

-I’m choosing to believe that Demi Lovato’s tweet isn’t shade but instead encouragement directed at me personally.

-Ahead of her daughter’s wedding, rumours are swirling that Anna Wintour is preparing to leave Vogue.

-Oh no. Elvis Costello, 63, cancelled his tour after revealing he is battling a “very aggressive” cancer.

-If Mariah Carey‘s kid is putting a plastic bag over his head, maybe that’s his way of saying he doesn’t want to be dragged onstage?

Keri Russell is re-teaming with JJ Abrams for Star Wars Episode IX. It’s not exactly the Felicity reunion I was hoping for, but I’ll take it!

-Also, miss me with all this talk that she should play Rey’s mother. Hard pass.

Will Smith revealed Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s reaction to his son, Jaden, wearing a Batman costume to their 2014 wedding. “Ye was cool. ‘Yo, I love that!’ Kim was a little bit like, ‘Jaden…'”

Anne Hathaway fangirling over Jake Gyllenhaal on Instagram made my day.

-Batman fans are super angry about the latest issue.

-I really liked this NYT profile on Lakeith Stanfield, who is promoting Sorry to Bother You. Vulture’s profile on the movie’s director, the awesomely named Boots Riley, is also great. (Apparently the movie’s ending is a real head-scratcher though.)

-I am so here for The Spy Who Dumped Me.
