Angelina Jolie Talks Moving On


Angelina Jolie is in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar and says she’s planning on moving to Africa. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18. Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”

Emma Watson calls herself “self-partnered” instead of “single,” which sounds kinda dirty and I love it.

-Talking to Howard Stern, Kristen Stewart says she would’ve married Robert Pattinson: “If he proposed, you would’ve gotten married. I’m not a super duper traditionalist, but at the same time…every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

Martin Scorcese wrote a NYT piece on superhero movies and film Twitter has been fighting about it all day. I actually agree with a lot of what he says about the changing business of making movies — media consolidation IS making it harder for smaller and/or diverse films to get theatrical releases. It’s all very similar to Soderbergh’s State of Cinema speech. But he undercuts his argument by taking unnecessary swipes at superhero movies, wading into a tired and snobbish ‘art vs. commerce’ debate. If he stuck to the business/industry side of things, and pointed out how scary Disney is becoming, I bet it would be more widely embraced. I think this thread nails it.

Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin in The Batman, with Andy Serkis up to play Alfred.

Footage surfaced of ABC’s Amy Robach talking about how she had the Epstein story three years ago, but the lawyers killed it. “The palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton — we had everything.” She later said “I was caught in a private moment of frustration.”

-Welp. Netflix is offering a “skip” button for Trump jokes in the new Seth Meyers comedy special.

Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are very charming in a new clip from Little Women.

Matt Damon told Conan O’Brien about the time Ben Affleck rescued him from a fight when they were young. “Little five-foot-two Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere. I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Two Popes, starring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins. People LOVED this at TIFF.

-We have a new trailer for Netflix’s new anthology series based on the songs of Dolly Parton.

-Here’s the new new Bad Boys For Life trailer, reuniting Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

Harry Styles Goes Shirtless on Rolling Stone

-I checked to see how old Harry Styles is before deciding if I was allowed to drool a little over his Rolling Stone cover — and it turns out his 25. Totally fine. It took me awhile but I get it now.

Katie Holmes has reportedly pulled the plug on her relationship with Jamie Foxx, with the news coming days after he was spotted holding hands with another woman. Again.

-Congrats to Dwayne Johnson and his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, who got married in Hawaii.

-According to TMZ, Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber are eyeing a date in September for a big wedding event/anniversary party.

-Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson and Tom Felton reunited to play guitar in their pjs, launching a million fanfics.

Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter continue to stoke relationship rumours. The pair were spotted hanging out with Miley’s mom in Los Angeles.

Elton John loaned his private jet to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry so they could enjoy some time at his private estate, and was not amused when the British press complained that the were adding to the carbon footprint by not flying commercial. The Brits are definitely focusing on the wrong royal right now.

-The casting for HBO/BBC’s fantasy drama adaptation of His Dark Materials continues to awe. Andrew Scott (aka Fleabag’s hot priest) just came onboard.

Kate Hudson doing sponcon for Weight Watchers is weird but at least she seems to be having fun with it. Who cooks in a trench coat tho?

-Arrow may be wrapping in January, but Stephen Amell already has his next gig lined up: he’ll headline an 8-episode wrestling drama at Starz. This seems like a good career move. Transition into a bit more prestige-y stuff, while sticking with TV and the type of content his fanbase will follow him for.

-Ugh, these clips from Anderson Cooper‘s interview with Stephen Colbert  on the tragic death of his father and brothers in a plane crash made me tear up.

-The Seth Rogen-produced Good Boys, a movie about the R-rated misadventures of 3 preteen boys, had the year’s largest opening total for an original comedy.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo tweeting sweet things at each other as they wrap TATBILB filming is killing me.

-This is a good look at how this age of media corporation mega-mergers spells trouble. People don’t seem as concerned about Disney taking over Hollywood as maybe they should be.

-I was looking forward to CW’s debut of I Ship It tonight (about a woman who impulsively quits her job to become an assistant on the show she’s been writing fanfiction about) but the reviews are just ok.

-Man, last night’s episode of Succession should have included a trigger warning for anyone who’s ever worked in digital media. (One of the show’s writers/producers used to work for The Onion, which is probably why they nailed it.) The headlines running in the background for the fake Gawker/Buzzfeed site were perfect.

-Marvel Comics’ attempts to appear apolitical don’t seem to be working anymore.

-I really enjoyed this interview with Michelle Williams on preparing for Fosse/Verdon and taking a break from working.

-The trailer for Kristen Stewart’s “new” movie (which she filmed in 2017) couldn’t have come at a worse time for her.

Reese Witherspoon is taking on Marie Kondo with a new Netflix show about tidying up.

-Today was a *crazy* day for TV trailers and news. Steven Soderbergh‘s next movie about older ladies going on a trip (starring Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, and Dianne Wiest) has landed an the upcoming streaming service HBO Max. Amazon dropped its trailer (featuring Sterling K. Brown) and release date (Dec 6) for season 3 of Marvelous Mrs Maisel. We got our first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s Upcoming Netflix show The Politician, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Platt. But the buzziest drop (and maybe not in a good way) was Apple’s first real trailer for The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. For a company with a reputation for their marketing genius, they are not handling these trailers well. With this cast I was expecting a comedy, not what looks like a dour mix of Studio 60 and The Newsroom. And was Witherspoon really cast as the young ingenue?!

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Perfect Part

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter with Ben Platt to promote Ryan Murphy‘s new Netflix show The Politician, in which she plays Platt’s ultra-rich, entitled stepmom. Has there ever been a more perfect headline than “Wealth & Privilege & Gwyneth”? She talks about working with husband Brad Falchuk, who co-created the show (“It’s so fun to be working with someone who you’re in love with. I was like, ‘Agh! He’s so hot, he’s so talented, this is so fun'”) and is hilariously dismissive of playing the game (“I’m definitely going to do some promotion. As little as I can get away with, but still”).

-Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller Bridge was adorable (and adorably naughty) while playing Think Fast! with Jimmy Fallon.

-The 90210 premiere scored the best series premiere of the summer, with ratings more than double the best performance by any other broadcast scripted series this season.

-Meanwhile, Shannen Doherty says she definitely wasn’t going to do the show — “They didn’t need me, so it just wasn’t, at that moment, what I wanted to be doing” — but when Luke Perry passed away things “drastically changed” and she saw it as an opportunity to honour him.

-The mukbang trend has officially peaked: Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski’s did a sponcon one.

-In the latest “white men fail up” news, the Game Of Thrones creators just closed a $200M Netflix deal. On the plus side, it looks like this means Confederate is dead in the water.

-Figure skater Scott Moir is engaged to someone who isn’t Tessa Virtue and my Twitter TL is all up in their feels about it.

-Oh my god, there’s a chance that Happy Endings might be revived and I NEED IT. Do you know how many times I’ve referenced “whore’s bath” in my life? (Spoiler alert: too many times.)

-Now that Schitt’s Creek has won over fans in the US, it looks like Letterkenny is the next Canadian comedy up to bat.

Michelle Williams will reprise her role as Anne/She-Venom in Andy Serkis’ Venom 2. Get that Marvel money, girl.
