Timothée Chalamet Interviews Zendaya for Elle

-After months and months of John Oliver lusting after him, Adam Driver appeared on his show to ask “What the f**k are you doing?” He (fake) ranted “This bit? This bit, this thing you’ve been doing that’s either sexual or violent? This strange, strange bit that for some reason you’ve pulled me into? What is it? When you first started doing it, it was easy for me to shrug it off. But then it kept going on, and on, and on, and on… Do you realize, over this past year, what you’ve asked me to do to you? ‘Collapse on your chest.’ ‘Tie your fingers in a square knot.’ ‘Step on your throat.’ ‘Shatter your knees.’ ‘Pull your heart out through your ear.’ What’s wrong with you? You realize we’re strangers, right? I don’t know you. And now, random people on the internet stan us, claiming that you thirsting over me is a mood.” I love them both so much.

Viola Davis On Surviving 2020

Viola-Davis-Instyle-Mag

Viola Davis rocks some killer pantsuits in the new issue of Instyle. In the interview, she talks about Black Lives Matter (“What’s happening is what has always been happening. We just decided to wake up. How have I been able to process it? I have days when I fail miserably. And that’s when I need my two or three glasses of wine. But I’m trying not to lose hope in humanity”), and her reputation as being “commanding” (“Other people see it much more than I do. I will say that I think my greatest source of strength is my authenticity. If I try to channel some other being, I get lost. That’s when my anxiety level goes up. Growing up in Central Falls [R.I.] as the only kinky-haired chocolate-brown girl, I always was trying to channel the girls who had the Farrah Fawcett look. It had disastrous results”).
