Gillian Anderson Debuts New Look, New Line

Gillian Anderson for Winser London

Gillian Anderson teamed up with Winser London for a new collection  and this look is a MOOD. Talk about BDE.

Ruth Wilson continues to be cryptic about her exit from The Affair, but promises there’s “a much bigger story” behind it. “It isn’t about pay parity, and it wasn’t about other jobs…But I’m not really allowed to talk about it.” I’m so curious!!

-In other news, she’s reportedly returning to the new season of Luther? YES!! I don’t even know how that’s possible storywise, and I don’t care.

-Wow, critics are LOVING First Man starring Ryan Gosling, which just opened in Venice.

-Venice is always known for grand entrances, but Lady Gaga’s takes the cake.

-I was really hoping Prince Harry would continue the song at a performance of Hamilton last night, but he only attempted the opening line.

Michael B Jordan challenged Will Smith to a cook off — and Gordon Ramsey offered to judge.

Emmy Rossum has hinted that she’s leaving Shameless in an emotional Facebook post to her fans. “I know you will continue on without me, for now. There is much more Gallagher story to be told. I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.” I know Showtime is known for beating dead horses, but the show should really end now.

-I’m soo curious why HBO made Tom & Lorenzo take down their series on Sharp Objects’s fashion because of “how much they were giving away.” The show is over. It’s based on a book. If people wanted to be spoiled, there are better ways than an article on its wardrobe.

-If Drake and Kanye West are going to continue this feud, they’re going to have to do more than talk in emojis for me to care.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is teasing Jaime’s relationship with Brienne in the upcoming season of Game of Thrones and this is really all I want to watch now.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who was confused by TATBILB’s magical nightgown. (How did it not billow up in the hot tub?)

-Meanwhile, it’s weird af that people are shipping Lana Condor and Noah Centineo IRL. I mean, I get it because they have crazy chemistry, but it’s still weird. I’m glad the actors don’t seem too freaked out by it.

-Oh man, Mo Ryan gets INTO IT in her Hollywood Reporter column on Louis C.K.‘s set: “He controlled, in a monstrous way, the manner of his professional return — and then he used the word ‘rape’ in his set. For laughs. For a ‘joke’ about how rape whistles are ‘unclean.’ What the fuck? What the FUCK? He’s not done narcissistically inflicting pain on unsuspecting people. This past week proves that beyond a doubt…He didn’t take even one step down the road to a new chapter. Instead, he twisted the knife. He told a joke about rape whistles. He actually invoked sexual violence in that set.”

Roxanne Gay also wrote an excellent piece on it for the New York Times:  “We spend so little energy thinking about justice for victims and so much energy thinking about the men who perpetrate sexual harassment and violence. We worry about what will become of them in the wake of their mistakes. We don’t worry as much about those who have suffered at their hands.”

-In the first trailer for Jason Reitman’s The Front Runner, Hugh Jackman plays Gary Hart, a politician whose White House potential was derailed by an affair.

-I’m intrigued for the trailer for I Think We’re Alone Now, Reed Morano’s film starring Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning.

Zendaya Lands Her First Vogue Cover

zendaya vogue cover

Zendaya looks stunning on the cover of Vogue’s July issue, in which she talks about making demands to Disney execs when she was only 16, and learning trapeze for her new movie.

-THR’s TV Comedy Actress roundtable features Emmy Rossum, Issa Rae, America Ferrera, Pamela Adlon, Minnie Driver, and Katherine Hahn. Among the best bits: Rossum says William H. Macy supported her most during her equal pay fight, Adlon remembered having a similar battle on Californication, Driver talked about directors building ditches for her to stand in when kissing shorter costars instead of just making the actor stand on an apple box, and Hahn talked about always getting typecast as the BFF and pitched a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-type movie where she and Judy Greer are the leads, and every so often you see Kate Hudson running around in the background. (I would watch that.)

Beyonce might be having her twins right now and the internet is melting down.

Jessica Chastain would like everyone to stop looking at her wedding photos, which were taken by paps in a helicopter. Fair enough (though I’ll be interested to see if she shares them herself eventually, or sells them to a pub).

-I posted a few days ago about Jake Johnson‘s awesome story about Tom Cruise being the nicest guy ever. Here are 18 more.

-On the flip side, did he have too much say in The Mummy script?

Elizabeth Banks really stepped in it yesterday when she used an acceptance speech to call out legendary director Steven Spielberg for failing to make female-lead films. Shari Belafonte pointed out The Color Purple, but Banks simply “moved on.” This white feminism bullshit is getting worse.

-Update: Elizabeth tweeted an apology. She’s a producer and a director now; lets hope she learns from this and hires all types of women for her next projects.

-Speaking of famous white women being woke-light, the NYT profile on Katy Perry did her no favours. The writer calls her out repeatedly, saying “in our interview, she proclaimed herself devoted to dialogue but spoke in a near uninterrupted monologue.” It’s like when DeRay Mckesson asked her about cultural appropriation during her live-stream and she talked for two minutes straight but never actually apologized.

-This is depressing: the Cosby jury is deadlocked. They deliberated for 30 hours over 4 days before telling the judge they couldn’t reach a verdict. He’s ordered them back for more deliberations.

-Making a Murderer fans: Steven Avery‘s lawyer says she thinks the victim’s ex-boyfriend killed her.

Rebel Wilson won her defamation case against a magazine publisher: “I had to stand up to a bully.”

-Sweet! The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira is joining the cast of Avengers: Infinity War.

-I can’t believe I somehow missed this last week: Tobey Maguire and ex-wife Jennifer Meyer attended their daughter’s school production of Beauty & the Beast, and all their A-list friends came, including Leonardo DiCaprio (with his wolf pack), Courteney Cox and Gwyneth Paltrow. I bet the other kids felt like crap when only their grandparents showed up for them.

-The Wolf Pack has moved on to NYC and picked up Orlando Bloom.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she’s moving away from acting to focus on Goop. So I guess I’m moving towards ridiculing her full time.

DeMario Jackson broke his silence over those Bachelor In Paradise allegations, saying “my character has been assassinated.”

-Also, this article on drunken hook-ups on reality TV is unnerving. “There are implied incentives available to cast members who are down to fool around.”

Karrueche Tran has beeng granted a five-year restraining order against Chris Brown.

Ryan Seacrest is on the cover of THR with the crazy story of the secret, heated negotiations to bring him back to the rebooted American Idol. After blowing the record-breaking $25 million to hire Katy Perry, producers went back to Seacrest with half of their original offer and things got tense.

-I really like both Chrissy Teigen and Colton Haynes, but these interviews are way too TMI.

Josh Brolin is getting seriously buff for Deadpool 2.

-How the hell is Johnny Depp still getting handed first-look deals? How many bombs is he going to have to have before Hollywood moves on?

Elle Macpherson has split from her billionaire husband.

-National treasure Diane Keaton candidly listed the celebs she is and isn’t friends with.

-I watched The Leftovers series finale a week ago and avoided articles/podcasts up until now because I wanted to have time to digest it. (I’ve changed my mind three times since then about whether or not I believe Nora’s story, but I’m holding firm in my first impression that it was a near-perfect finale.) Now that I’m looking up what was written about it, I’m astounded by Vulture’s deep dive. Their writer was basically embedded with the show for months to create this feature. It verges a little into ‘how the sausage is made’ territory, but even if you’ve never seen the show, this is a great read for anyone interested in how TV works.

-Rough Night is only at 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it got good reviews from two critics I usually agree with, so that’s promising.

-This is an interesting look at how much Netflix is paying for new TV shows (word is that they’re investing $4 per subscriber on original content.) Basically, they “must spend like a drunken sailor to compete with TV networks.”

-Do NOT put Lindsay Lohan and Jane Austen in the same headline, People! Don’t you effing dare!

Aisha Tyler emotionally announced on today’s show that she’s leaving The Talk: “I just realized I had to let something go”. Can’t say I’m surprised. She’s at Seacrest-levels of work, with Criminal Minds, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Archer, her podcast, her cocktail company and hitting the festival circuit with her directorial debut. I don’t even know if I’ve ever watched an episode of The Talk but when she started sob-heaving in that clip I got teary.

-The new Friends From College trailer stars Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage and Keegan-Michael Key.

Oscar Isaac Is Going to Be a Daddy (Not Yours, Tho)

-Your internet boyfriend  Oscar Isaac is having a baby with documentarian Elvira Lind.

Scarlett Johansson said of the Ghost In The Shell casting controversy: “I would never attempt to play a person of a different race.” Um sweetie, what do you think you just did?

-Good thing Emmy Rossum just got that Shameless pay bump: she had $150,000 worth of jewelry stolen in a home burglary.

-The U.S. version of the Love Actually sequel will have additional scenes apparently, because Laura Linney will appear in it. Her character better be incandescently happy (and have burned that wooly hat she wore to the wedding).

Aaron Sorkin would like you to know that he is, in fact, aware of Hollywood’s diversity problem. Uh huh.

Ryan Gosling‘s got a real shrill streak going on this month.

Mandy Moore doesn’t want to hear your morbid Frozen/Tangled fan theories, ok?

-Here’s our first look at Jake Gyllenhaal and Tilda Swinton in Okja, Bong Joon-ho’s follow-up to Snowpiercer. This is basically the reason I renewed my Netflix subscription, y’all.

Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are reuniting to cohost an NBC reality competition about artisans who make things with their hands. Don’t care; will watch.

-The internet is NOT happy Cuba Gooding Jr. for lifting Sarah Paulson’s skirt.

-Is this a photo of Samantha Bee getting screeched in? How adorably Canadian!

-Welp, this blind item might explain that bizarre TV news I mentioned yesterday.

-The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast are reunited in this very cute pic.

-I really liked this article on how “camp” is often improperly and broadly applied to pop culture that features so-called “unlikable” female characters.

-I also dug this take on how the  “10-hour movie” trend in prestige TV is infuriating (which comes with this handy list).

-I will never NOT link to a story about Reese Witherspoon’s drunken dancing. Never!

-Here’s the Ghost Story trailer, which combines the two people I don’t need to see in another movie this decade: Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara.
