mila-kunis-cosmopolitan

Kate McKinnon interviews costar Mila Kunis in the new issue of Cosmo, in which she talks about first reconnecting with Ashton Kutcher over social media, and how  her family sometimes believes tabloid stories about her.

-The idea of Justin Timberlake begging Drake to do a collab tickles me more than it probably should.

-At a backyard party on the Fourth of July, Chance The Rapper got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend, Kirsten Corley, to marry him. I’m gonna sound like my grandma right now, but he probably should have put a shirt on first.

Idris Elba  is in final talks to play the villain in the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. This is already the best F&F movie ever made! (Somewhere, do you think Vin Diesel is weeping softly?)

-I’m digging season 2 of GLOW but yeah, this one thing is bothers me too (probably because in the first season it never even occurred to me that it could be their endgame).

This tweet compared Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas to New Girl’s Cece and Schmidt and now it’s all I can see.

-The photo of Jay Z wearing a helmet while riding a jet ski has gone viral because…well, have you seen it?

-The Beckhams presented a united front on their 19th anniversary. But no one seems particularly convinced though because we’re all cynical beshes.

Lupita Nyong’o and Kristen Stewart keep inching closer to that Charlie’s Angels reboot that Elizabeth Banks is directing, but nothing’s been confirmed.

-I like that Selena Gomez spent Independence Day with her Wizards of WaverlyPlace costar David Henrie. He seems like a good egg.

Julianna Margulies says she rejected an invite to guest on The Good Fight in season one because she “didn’t think that was fair” to the cast. “I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been [all] about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” And now TGF has surpassed TGW in every possible way.

-July 4th means Blind Item reveal day on Crazy Days and Nights. I’m side-eyeing most of these, but this one is really nice.

-Rumoured couple Chris Pine and Peaky Blinders star Annabelle Wallis look very couple-y.

Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio being friends makes so much sense to me.

Amy Adams’ HBO show Sharp Objects, which debuts Sunday, continues to get stellar reviews.

T.I. says that he confronted Kanye West about his Trump comments — and their five-hour conversation about politics turned into into a collab.

-You’d think Gillian Anderson would want to stay away from alien-themed pop culture, but here she is in the UFO trailer. I’m not complaining.

Michael B Jordan Covers Essence

-It’s been one of those weeks where I thought it was Friday every day (it was really not), so this Michael B. Jordan cover couldn’t have come at a better time. He dismisses rumours that he doesn’t date black women: “It’s so funny to everybody because it couldn’t be further from the truth. My dad and my mom both said, ‘If they only knew.’ If they only knew. And that’s the thing that keeps me not tripping about it, you know what I mean?”

-Speaking of good covers,  Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae, and Sarah Silverman cover the GQ comedy issue — and the photo pokes fun at Vanity Fair’s recent cover fail.

-MTV has suspended production on Catfish because Nev Schulman has been accused of sexual misconduct. In a YouTube video, a woman who appeared in a season 4 episode accused Schulman and an unnamed female producer of harassment and assault. He’s denied it, saying “The behavior described in this video did not happen.”

-Congrats to Chrissy Teigen, who had baby number 2.

Meghan Markle released a statement that her father will not be attending the wedding. I’m still not convinced.

Gillian Anderson will star as a sex therapist in a new Netflix series and I’m totally here for it.

-Six months ago, Mo Ryan broke the story that NCIS NOLA showrunner Brad Kern had been the subject of numerous HR complaints. CBS now says Kern is no longer showrunning, but he’s still a “consultant.”

-I’m sad that they’re all ending, but I’m really glad that the CW is giving iZombie, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane The Virgin a chance to end on their own terms and plan their final runs. Too bad that Jane isn’t coming back until mid-season, though. So long to wait after that huge finale twist!

-Now that the upfronts are over, here are the trailers for all the new broadcast shows debuting this fall. Medical drama New Amersterdam seems to be NBC’s biggest bet because it landed the coveted post-This Is Us timeslot, The Passage on Fox might be decent (I liked the book and anything that puts Mark-Paul Gosselaar back on my TV is tops), critics really seemed to like what they saw of Leighton Meester’s Single Parents, and on the CW the Charmed trailer actually looks…good? It’s from the Jane the Virgin showrunner so suddenly I have high hopes.

-CW’s next superhero show crossover will feature Batwoman and the city of Gotham. Huh.

-I love Buzzfeed’s ode to Winston on New Girl. He was such a perfect weirdo.

-Stop claiming that fictional characters have different sexual orientations than what is actually seen onscreen, writers. That’s not representation, that’s just pretending to have representation. It doesn’t count.

-Why even ask John Travolta about his thoughts on Me Too? Like, why is he even relevant to the discussion?

-Ditto for Lee Daniels.

-I adored Zombieland so I’m very psyched by the news that a sequel with the original cast is slated for next year. Between this and Jordan Peele executive producing a show about vengeance-driven Nazi hunters for Amazon, it’s a good time for zombies.

-The red-band trailer for Sorry to Bother You has arrived. Oh yes.

 

 

Meghan Markle’s Dad No Longer Walking Her Down the Aisle

-After it came out that he reportedly staged photos with paps, Meghan Markle’s dad is no longer attending the royal wedding. Is it just me, or does her messed up family make her more relatable?

-Meanwhile, George and Amal Clooney reportedly nabbed an invite.

-Do I have to rethink my whole stance on Benedict Cumberbatch? In a new interview, he says actors should boycott projects that do not pay woman the same amount as their male co-stars. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.'”

This is a great take on Anna Wintour‘s recent editor’s letter in Vogue, in which she insist Georgina Chapman had no knowledge of husband Harvey Weinstein‘s behaviour.

-The actors who are in Hawaii filming the Netflix movie Triple Frontier continue to bless us with wonderful photos. This time, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund are running shirtless on a beach.

-I really like Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons’ baby name. Huh.

-Led by Cate Blanchett, 82 women climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals at Cannes to call for gender equality in the film industry.

Cardi B deleted her Instagram account following a spat with Azealia Banks.

Chris Hemsworth‘s daughter came up to him and said she wanted a penis like her brothers and he had the best possible response.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his interview with ET in the most Harrison Ford-ish way. “Get out of my chair.”

-As New Girl winds down this week, Zooey Deschanel reveals that T.J. Miller almost played Schmidt. Thank god that didn’t happen.

Busy Phillips supporting her Dawson’s Creek pal Joshua Jackson on Broadway makes me smile.

Pink let a fan sing at her Vancouver concert and it was great.

-This Is Us star Justin Hartley says a female fan sexually harassed him — and then got angry when he didn’t want to pose for a selfie.

-Not gonna lie: Mandy Moore crying about filming *that* scene in last season’s This Is Us kinda got to me.

-For Mother’s Day, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a nude photo of herself just before she gave birth to Apple in 2004.

-On the latest episode of Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Facebook show, her daughter Willow shocked her by revealing that she started cutting to deal with the post-“Whip My Hair” fame.

-Even though he once wrote an editorial pushing for his blacklisting, powerhouse agent Ari Emanuel is now reportedly helping Mel Gibson’s return to Hollywood — in order to please Mark Wahlberg.

-Another Transparent crew member alleges that Jeffrey Tambor kissed her without her consent. Meanwhile, Amazon has pulled him from the Emmy race.

-Oh no. Ex-NCIS actress Pauley Perrette says he endured “multiple physical assaults” on the set.

-I had no idea when I was watching last week’s Atlanta that it was already the season finale. What a nearly perfect second season. I still don’t know what to think about that ending, tho.

Ryan Reynolds sang ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie dressed as unicorn on a Korean TV show. This promo tour is wild, y’all.

-Most of the TV cancellations and renewals have been announced (though NBC still hasn’t pulled the trigger on Timeless, despite Kelly Clarkson and Leslie Jones caping for it). Agents of Shield was renewed, Gotham is coming back for a final 13 episodes (which will take them to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication), Lethal Weapon will return with Seann William Scott replacing Clayne Crawford, and CBS dropped Kevin Can Wait and Scorpion. Perhaps most surprising were the seemingly slam-dunk pilots that weren’t picked up, including Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba‘s Bad Boys spinoff,  Hannah Simone‘s Greatest American Hero reboot, and Katie Holmes‘ FBI drama.

-This is a good explainer on why Fox was particularly brutal with the axe this season (TL;DR: NFL, a desire for multicam sitcoms, lack of show ownership, and the Disney deal.)

-Fox also announced they have no more plans for The X Files. Good on Gillian Anderson for hitting up Twitter and refusing to shoulder the blame for the show not going forward.

-This is a great interview with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s showrunner about the roller coaster of emotions he experienced in the 13 hours between Fox cancelling it and NBC picking it up.

-I seemed to be the only person on Twitter this weekend who did not watch The Kissing Booth on Netflix, which meant I didn’t get to partake in the freakout when it was revealed the main stars are dating IRL.

-The first trailer for Spike Lee‘s highly-anticipated BlacKkKlansman has landed, starring John David Washington (Denzel’s son) and Adam Driver.
