Amy Schumer Talks Love and Sex Dreams


-This Marie Claire cover is my favourite yet of Amy Schumer. In the interview, she talks about finding love (“I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me”), dealing with her newfound fame (“I’m trying to figure out how to navigate all this”) and a recent sex dream she had about pal Jemima Kirke (“I almost told her about it. Then I thought maybe Lena would get jealous.”).

-No, Tom Hiddleston. No. You do not get to participate in the most publicity-baiting relationship/stunt for weeks and then get all flustered and perturbed when asked about it like that’s an unexpected question. ALL THE NOPES.

-Meanwhile, is Taylor Swift gunning for a couples Vogue cover? Someone send me an invite to the prayer circle!

-Also, Taylor Swift tops Forbes’ list of the highest paid celebrities — but  it was Kim Kardashian who made the mag’s cover.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk‘s camps insist they were not fighting at Wimbledon. Even though they ran into his ex Suki Waterhouse. And the whole world watched this video. But nope, nothing to see here, folks.

-I’m really glad Samira Wiley‘s most memorable moment from TO’s Pride parade wasn’t the crazy girl who kept yelling “SAMIRAAAAAA!” until she waved at me. I mean her. Waved at her. The girl. Who wasn’t me.

-This is so smart: Mr Robot briefly premiered three days early on Twitter, Youtube and Snapchat. Whoever was running their social media was having a blast with it, too.

Alanis Morissette named her new baby Onyx Solace. Mmkay.

Liv Tyler also welcomed a baby girl. She named her Lula Rose, which is adorable.

Snoop Dogg on Family Feud is surprisingly delightful!

-This story about Prince being a secret computer nerd made me stupidly happy.

-Of course Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dined at Kasa Moto when they were here. Of course they did.

Lin-Manuel Miranda with short hair is making me feel …things.

Shonda Rhimes has no time for Italian TV’s “inexcusable” censorship of HTGAWM’s gay sex scene.

-Just in case you were worried, Kristen Stewart is still cool AF.

-She’s also gunning for a female Bond.

-Guys, the Ghostbusters movie is getting good reviews! Like really, really good reviews. Praise Baby Jebus! (And screw the haters.)

-Meanwhile, in his new Vulture profilePaul Feig says “I wanted for little girls to be able to see themselves up on the screen.” This adorable photo from the screening proves he nailed it.

-Speaking of the premiere, Leslie Jones slayed in a Pretty Woman-inspired red gown, but I also think this was the best-ever showings from Melissa McCartney and Kristen Wiig.

-Are Rihanna and Drake legit official now? They both paid tribute to a fan who passed away. And then there’s this.

-I’m actually surprised Blake Lively allowed her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars to post this makeup-free pic.

-Oooh, this is such good news: Carrie Coon just signed on to be the lead in Fargo season 3.  She is basically the only reason I stuck with The Leftovers after its dismal first season, and I’m so glad I did. (Seriously, if you didn’t watch season 2, binge it ASAP.) Vulture just named her the Best TV Actress of 2106; watch the second clip embedded in that article if you want to understand why.

Simon Pegg wrote a thoughtful blog post on the decision to reveal Sulu as gay.

Gwyneth Paltrow is in Newfoundland? Please someone tell me there’s video of her being screeched in!

-THR’s full, uncensored Comedy Actress Roundtable with Ilana Glazer, Lily Tomlin, Niecy Nash, Gina Rodriguez, Allison Janney and Rachel Bloom is now online and ready for your eyeballs.

-Roadies episodes have been piling up on my DVR because even though the negative reviews aren’t making me want to watch it, I feel like I have to give Cameron Crowe joints a chance for nostalgia reasons, you know? But then I saw the Twitter/critic uproar over how a sexual assault was depicted on this week’s episode, and now I feel pretty good about deleting them all sight unseen.

-I read this entire review of Johnny Depp’s concert in my morning paper waiting for any mention of the assault allegations against him. Nada.

-Community’s Dan Harmon insists the movie part of #sixseasonsandamovie will happen.

Matt Damon multi-tasks in this new Jason Bourne clip.

Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey lend their voices to the Sing trailer.

The Stars of Ghostbusters Take Over Elle


-I love all four Elle covers featuring the stars of Ghostbusters!

-Speaking of Ghostbuster stars, here’s photographic proof that Melissa McCarthy is on the set of the Gilmore Girls revival — complete with Sookie’s trademark headscarf.

Lin-Manuel Miranda penned a powerful op-ed against the ticket-purchasing bots that are monopolizing Broadway sales. “You shouldn’t have to fight robots just to see something you love.”

-Speaking of Miranda, his edition of Carpool Karaoke is my new favourite — though I wish he had another song or two before Audra McDonald, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jane Krakowski climbed into the backseat. Still, I got goosebumps when they started in on “Seasons of Love,” and Audra‘s final note on “One Day More”? Jesus.

-Meanwhile, James Corden explained to Stephen Colbert how Carpool Karaoke went from a lowly sketch idea to a phenomenon.

-A computer expert has authenticated Amber Heard‘s texts referencing Johnny Depp‘s alleged abuse, while one of her friends is defending her by saying, “How much evidence does a woman need to present?”

-Meanwhile, TMZ continues to work for Team Depp.

Beyoncé referenced Khalessi in her powerful CFDA fashion icon acceptance speech. (She also slayed in a Givenchy ladysuit.)

-Speaking of the CFDAs, this might be my favourite look ever on Jessica Chastain.

-A Quentin Tarantino-produced film put out a casting call for “whores” because the world is awful.

Jamie Lee Curtis cosplayed with her son for the Warcraft premiere, a movie she’s not even in. That makes her a pretty boss mom.

-Meanwhile, Warcraft is KILLING it overseas — despite being called ‘The Battlefield Earth’ Of The 21st Century.’

Daniel Radcliffe freaked out at the sight of his historical doppelgangers on The Tonight Show. “What is it about me that I look like so many stern old ladies?”

-Hmmm…this doesn’t bode well: Chris Messina will not be a regular on the next season of The Mindy Project.

Helen Mirren is endorsing Kim Kardashian’s nude selfies: “I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!”

-Hmmm…I’m so curious which two TV shows fired Kerry Washington for not being “hood” enough.

-I wish I could unsee Meryl Streep donning a fat suit and orangeface to impersonate Donald Trump.

Will Smith will serve as a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali’s funeral.

-Speaking of Will, his daughter Willow joined him onstage to perform “Summertime.”

Scott Speedman was told to put his shirt on for Animal Kingdom. I KNEW there was a reason I wasn’t recording that show! (Also, this interview reminds me what a goddamn charmbomb his is. Cast him in everything, Hollywood.)

-Well, this is terrifying:  Jeremy Jordan is trying to save his cousin from a “pray away the gay” camp.

-I don’t think Supergirl should cast Superman because he could threaten to overwhelm the show BUT if they must, these suggestions are great. Matt Bomer doesn’t seem realistic, but Scott Porter or Enver Gjokaj? YASS!

-An adorable girl vomited on Paula Abdul after dancing to Beyoncé on SYTYCD. Paula, to her credit, rolled with it.

-This photo that Reese Witherspoon tweeted from the Big Little Liars set makes me even more excited to see this movie. I loved the book and the cast is insane: Nicole Kidman, Adam Scott, Laura Dern, Zoe Isabella Kravitz, Shailene Woodley.

Selena Gomez caught a fan FaceTiming at her show and got in on the action.

Drake disses Diddy in his new song “4PM in Calabasas.” Slow down, buddy. I haven’t even finished your new 20-track album.

-It took a lot of work to make Ryan Reynolds look that gross in Deadpool.

-Oof. Last night’s season premiere of UnREAL only managed to nab 500K viewers. Good thing we already know there’s a season 3 coming.

-The Japanese Ghostbusters trailer reveals more footage.

Hollywood’s Leading Ladies Cover THR

Hollywood Reporter actress roundtable

Kerry Washington, Sarah Paulson, Jennifer Lopez, Julianna Margulies, Regina King, Constance Zimmer, and Kirsten Dunst share the spotlight on cover of The Hollywood Reporter for their annual actress roundtable. I’m not sure about the “diva” cutline but I can’t wait to carve out some time to watch that video! For now, these highlights will have to do.

-Speaking of great covers, your pretend boyfriend Oscar Isaac is on the cover of the new Rolling Stone.

-The Good Wife spinoff at CBS’s streaming service is a go. I…what…huh?

-This is an excellent, exhaustive piece by Vulture on the economics of Peak TV. “Kevin Costner was offered $500K per episode to do a series for one of the big three streaming networks… He passed.”

Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen lovingly recreated their teen daughter’s birth on her 17th birthday, which doesn’t sound embarrassing at all.

-Shocking report: Blake Lively is not good at jokes.

-Allow Mariah Carey to demonstrate what to do when you have nothing nice to say.  Also, “I need a key light and you’re not giving me one” is my new favourite phase.

Zac Efron says he used to Google himself every morning. Sure, Zac. “Used to.”

-The Office’s Jenna Fischer was reportedly replaced on a show because she had “bad chemistry” with Matthew LeBlanc. Who has bad chemistry with Pam?!

-On-again, off-again couple Emma Roberts and Evan Peters just hit the off switch again.

Drake and Jimmy Fallon took the mini Drake meme to a whole new level this week.
