Avengers’ Paul Rudd and Chris Evans Re-Assemble

-The latest Actors on Actors interview is out, and it’s with Paul Rudd and Chris Evans. Needless to say, if you want to be charmed for 43 minutes this is for you. The best part was watching Evans fanboy over Rudd, asking “Why don’t you age? Are you drinking baby blood?”, recalling making him dance on video the first day they met, and saying “you’re like sorbet. You’re a palate cleanser – an always welcome addition.”

Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund are not only still together, they’re having a baby!

Jodie Turner-Smith calling Joshua Jackson a daddy (because “I made him one”) is social media perfection.

-Citing her own “pervasive privilege,” Kristen Bell has announced she is leaving her role as a biracial character on the Apple TV+ animated series Central Park. I would love to know the timing of this and if she made the decision before or after Jenny Slate. (Also, it was only back in January where the Central Park creator strongly defended the casting during the TCAs.)

Naomi Campbell covers the new issue of Vogue Spain and says it’s the first time she’s been photographed by a black Photgrapher for vogue / condenast and it was a woman of color.

-I pity the poor PR person who has to clean up Chris D’Elia‘s latest mess. In a misguided effort to prove he’s not a creep, he released a bunch of emails — which make him sound like a creep.

Demi Lovato seems content and in love, and I’m so happy for her.

-She also just signed a new deal with YouTube for a docuseries following the last three years of her ups and downs.

-Netflix will premiere a new show on July 10 called Down to Earth With Zac Efron in which the actor “searches for healthy, sustainable ways to live.” This is a different show than his upcoming Quibi one called Killing Zac Efron — which sounds like the total opposite.

-I get what this Variety article on the Television Critic Awards’ history of picking white winners was trying to do, but I’m not sure “submitting a more consciously inclusive ballot” is the only answer. (People much smarter than I am are talking about this much better than I ever could.)

Lisa Rinna claims the Karens at QVC is trying to silence her political views.

Celine Dion released a Pride-themed playlist and it is as cheesy and fun as you’d expect.

The Dixie Chicks are changing their name: The trio is now called The Chicks.

Cardi B was trending today because people thought she was trashing other female artists on a fake account. “These people must think I’m a 15-year-old girl … Stop trying to make this fake s**t up… don’t make lies about me. it’s tiring. It’s annoying.”

-Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones are reuniting for a pair of comedic shorts for Ireland’s Comic Relief. It’ll be set 40 years in the future — though I’m not sure older versions is really what people want to see from these characters.

-Meanwhile, following the success of Normal People, Hulu has ordered an adaptation of Sally Rooney‘s other novel, Conversations with Friends — a book I liked a lot more.

Sharon Choi, best known as director Bong Joon-ho’s interpreter during last year’s award season, interviewed Sandra Oh about Killing Eve.

Charlize Theron Says Being Unmarried Is “Innately My Truth”

Charlize Theron Glamour Magazine’s 2019 Women Of The Year

Charlize Theron is already getting raves for her turn in Bombshell and the promo tour hasn’t even fully kicked off yet. She’s in Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year issue, in which she talks about her single status (“I haven’t been in a relationship for a very long time. I never wanted to get married. Those are things that are not hard for me because they’re innately my truth. I find people are somewhat perplexed by that, and also more with women, right?”) and struggling to get recognition as a producer (“I think there’s this conclusion that sometimes gets made, like, ‘It can’t possibly be a f**king actress that put this thing together'”).

-Bless Town & Country for putting Laura Dern‘s “I will not NOT be rich” line from Big Little Lies on her cover. Talk about knowing their target audience.

Drake threw himself a birthday party in LA and Rihanna showed up. Hmmm…..

-Of all the ‘established directors criticizing Marvel’ takes, this one actually has merit. Pedro Almodóvar says superhero movies aren’t sexy enough. “And sexuality doesn’t exist for superheroes. They are neutered. There is an unidentified gender, the adventure is what’s important.” I also really like this thread about how the studios’ increased obsession with targeting all four quadrants has turned the most popular movies for adults and films into the same thing.

-It’s weirdly comforting that Paul Rudd and Conan O’Brien remain committed to their long-standing talk show appearance bit.

Hailey Baldwin might have shaded her hubby’s ex Selena Gomez. Or maybe not. Be better at pettiness, celebrities!

-I’m intrigued by Netflix’s new show Daybreak, mostly because the premise of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off meets zombies sounds fun, and @ira is a writer on it. The reviews are good.

-Speaking of pop culture critics who’ve become TV writers, this is a great NYT profile on Andy Greenwald, who went from critic to showrunner.

Anne Hathaway silencing the room by saying her favourite romcom is Gone Girl is a mood.

Rose McGowan is suing Harvey Weinstein, claiming he unleashed a cadre of “fixers” to make sure her rape allegations against him weren’t revealed in her memoir.

-The fact that these two little moments in the Breaking Bad movie were both improvised makes me so happy.

-I dig that whenever Kelly Clarkson is a fan of something (like Netflix’s Lucifer), she just manages to insert herself into it. I would do the same with her power.

-Patti LuPone continues to give zero f**ks during every interview and I’m living for it. On Andrew Lloyd Webber: “How could he talk about Evita? The whole thing is sung. He’s a jerk. He’s a sad sack. He is the definition of sad sack.”

Jared Leto’s frustration that Warner Bros. was moving ahead with Todd Phillips’s Joker was so great that he not only complained to his agents at CAA, who also represent Phillips, but asked his music manager to call the leader of Warners’ parent company. Bwahahaha!

Garrett Hedlund star in the first trailer for Burden, inspired by real members of the Ku Klux Klan.

Ben Affleck, Garrett Hedlund, Charlie Hunnam and Oscar Isaac’s Beach Party

-These photos of Charlie Hunnam, Ben Affleck, Garrett Hedlund, and Oscar Isaac enjoying a day at the beach made me realize a) I will never be able to distinguish Hunnam and Hudlund, b) Affleck’s story that the giant back tattoo is fake and for a movie role gets weaker with every passing day, and c) male celebrities should wrestle shirtless in the sand more often.

-Well, it looks like Terry Gilliam is trash.

-In a new interview, The Flash’s Keiynan Lonsdale, who plays Bram in Love, Simon, talks about representation, Queer Eye and coming out on the set of the film. “I just said it to the group, and they were, of course, really supportive and I explained to them that I wish I had said something earlier.”

-Ellen mortified Jennifer Garner by making her watch her Oscar meme. “What is wrong with me?!”

-I love that this mom has become an internet sensation because of Taylor Swift’s new video.

-Speaking of Swift’s new video, people are noticing a lot of similarities between it and this killer Kenzo ad, which stars Margaret Qualley from The Leftovers and was directed by Spike Jonze. Kenzo reportedly posted the comment: “Listen Tay, I feel you. It’s hard to stay fresh. Call us, we can help.”

-Here’s a look at Stranger Things star David Harbour‘s epic trek  to Antarctica that began as a Twitter joke.

Selena Gomez was spotted carrying a bible to lunch.

-I like this article that makes the case for prestige TV procedurals like The Good Fight, which is having a stellar second season.

Martin Freeman says filming Sherlock is no fun anymore because of its fandom. I’m sure there are plenty of other actors who’d be willing to take that hardship off his hands…

-This is a great look at the pre-emptive backlash against Ready Player One, and how the book has come to represent toxic fanboy culture.

-Why are celebrities still chummy with Chris Brown? Be better, Ed Sheeran!

-I’m a little worried about how Avengers: Infinity War is going to possibly be able to service all of these characters, but damn this is a good trailer. As soon as the trailer dropped, I saw people on my TL shipping Shuri/Bucky and Shuri/Peter. I follow the right people, obviously.
