Ellen Page Uses Her Late Night Appearance To Call Out Mike Pence’s Homophobia

Ellen Page was articulate and passionate last night on the Colbert Show, where she asked viewers to “connect the dots” between homophobic rhetoric and physical violence. “I’m lucky to have this time and this privilege to say this. This needs to f*cking stop.” Also, good on Stephen Colbert for just stepping back and letting her talk.

-Meanwhile, Empire star Jussie Smollett has given his first statement since being attacked: “My body is strong but my soul is stronger.”

Gisele Bundchen opened up on her past relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio: “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”

Adam Levine canceled the press conference before the Super Bowl, because holding one would have required Maroon 5 to answer uncomfortable questions. He then gave a wishy-washy defense of his involvement: “No one thought about it more than I did. No one put more thought and love into this than I did…I spoke to many people; most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.” Well, as long as he listened to HIMSELF, we’re all good, I guess.

Reese Witherspoon‘s newest book recommendation is Jasmine Guillory‘s The Proposal, which I adored.

Kit Harington let it slip to his wife Rose Leslie how Game of Thrones ends — and says she stopped talking to him “for days.” Spoiler repercussions are real, yo.

Micheal B Jordan might be in Black Panther 2…somehow.

Christina Aguilera serenaded unsuspecting donut shop customers on Kimmel’s show.

-Netflix has renewed Sex Education for a second season.

-Oh god. There’s rumblings that the CW is considering a Gossip Girl reboot.

Busy Philipps admits she “always hated her stomach” as she celebrates her unretouched Aerie ad. (Her stomach looks awesome — which isn’t surprising since her IG Stories are 70% about her planking.)

-Google Assistant continues with the Home Alone trend, this time with Joe Pesci.

-Netflix’s Russian Doll (starring Natasha Lyonne and exec produced by Amy Poehler) hits Netflix today and it’s been a while since I’ve seen critics so universally embrace a new show. Variety says it’s “spiky, funny, devastating and downright bizzare,” Rolling Stone calls Lyonne a “revelation,”  Vox calls it terrific and twisted, AV Club says it’s more rewarding than any puzzle-box show, Vulture calls it a “brilliant, surreal show about women in power,” The Hollywood Reporter says it starts good, then gets better, and The New York  Times says the main character describes herself as “if Andrew Dice Clay and the little girl from Brave made a baby.”

Olivia Wilde takes down abusers in the trailer for A Vigilante.

-Hobbs & Shaw are an ass-kicking odd couple in the Fast & Furious spin-off’s first ridiculous but also kinda great trailer.

-Damn. Chris Hardwick  just got #MeToo’d and this one is hitting me hard. The Nerdist was the very first podcast I ever listened to and although his earnestness was slightly grating, I always thought he sounded like a good dude. Of course, my feelings don’t matter; Chloe Dystra’s does. Good on her for speaking up. Even though she never explicitly names him, it’s clear who she’s talking about and her story is incredibly disturbing. I’m so over toxic fanboys who were nerdy/bullied in high school and now feel like they’re owed something. They’re really not.

-Meanwhile, here is the Nerdist podcast in which Chloe and Chris talk about the surgery she references in her essay. It’s … not good. Start around the 1 hour, 20 min mark.

-It’ll be interesting to see what happens now. He’s been a trending topic all morning so the story keeps getting wider, but he’s scheduled to be a big part of Comic Con, including moderating the Doctor Who panel. He also has a brand new show debuting on Sunday on AMC.

-According to Gisele Bundchen‘s new Vogue cover storyTom Brady made up quite an elaborate story about her apartment flooding before asking her to marry him.

Jake Johnson is looking GOOD in GQ.

-I’m busy this weekend and Nicole is travelling for the next two, so we’ve promised not to watch the new romcom Set It Up (which stars Taye Diggs and Lucy Liu, and drops today on Netflix) until we’re together but the reviews are so good and it’s going to be SO HARD.

Chris Pratt played Box of Lies and of course, he destroyed Jimmy Fallon.

-Meanwhile, Pratt isn’t saying no to a Parks and Recs reunion.

Amy Poehler was named one of the 40 most powerful people in comedy and she epically derailed her Q&A to talk about real issues.

-Split rumors are nothing new for Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, but she wants to make one thing clear: “At the end of the day, that’s a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period.”

-Star Trek: Discovery has fired showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, and Alex Kurtzman will take over season two. Harberts and Berg reportedly ran into budget woes and became increasingly verbally abusive to the Discovery writing staff, according to the THR story.

-Speaking of network shakeups, CBS has retained outside counsel to investigate NCIS: New Orleans’ writer-producer Brad Kern, who just got a new 2-year deal. He’ll continue to work on the show during the inquiry, which follows two CBS HR investigations of him. Insiders are reportedly angry that he’s remaining involved in the hit drama despite a new inquiry from outside counsel over claims of sexual harassment and racially-charged comments.

-I can’t wait to hear what Judith Light is going to say about Jeffrey Tambor once she’s allowed.

-I thought Tag might be a fun, mindless movie for the summer but the reviews are really not great.

-This is a good point about Brie Larson. Everyone I know who saw Unicorn Store at TIFF last year adored it.

-I would like Zazie Beetz to be in every magazine this summer. Is that possible?

-I like to read lots of light fluffy romcoms during the summer, and I’ve noticed some super weird stuff going on in my Kindle. This article on book stuffing in the romance genre was illuminating.

-This is exactly what I’ve been thinking too whenever I see someone praising Nas’ new album.

-I adore Ken Marino, but I don’t know about this dog movie he’s directing…

Avril Lavigne Annouces Split from Chad Kroeger on Instagram

http://instagram.com/p/7I5TTpo4M0/

Avril Lavigne is the latest celebrity to prove she doesn’t need to release statements through official channels. She just announced the end of her two-year marriage to Chad Kroeger via Instagram.

-Here’s a closer look at Sandra Bullock’s new boyfriend. Four for you, girl!

Emma Thompson continues to give interviews that should become required reading for all humans. Her bit about women who don’t call themselves feminists is particularly inspired.

-Simmer down, E! News. Just because Robert Pattinson happened to be at the same place as a wedding, doesn’t mean he “crashed” it.

-The 007 author apologized about calling Idris Elba “street” and said it had nothing to do with race (which, if you read his full interview, you’d have guessed). But what about Idris not being “sauve” enough? That’s the apology-needing bit, IMO.

-Meanwhile, Idris Elba and Cary Fukunaga cover Variety and tell harrowing tales of almost dying during Beast of No Nations’s shoot in Ghana.

Gisele Bundchen threatened Tom Brady with divorce, which may explain their sudden PDA. This is why I always side eye articles that say nothing except how cozy a couple is. Like this one.

Next year’s Oscars will have two hosts, because the Anne Hathaway/James Franco debacle has taught us nothing. Unless it’s Amy Schumer and Chris Pratt, I don’t want to hear about it.

-This is a pretty fascinating story about what a mess the fall TV season is, and nothing has even premiered yet. There’s been a crazy amount of firings, recastings and showrunner swaps already.

-Nothing makes me laugh harder than the people on Twitter who are SO MAD about the all the press Kermit and Miss Piggy’s “split” is getting. Yeah, it’s basically just a promo for their new show, but the back and forth is also a clever commentary on celebrity coverage. I bet those Twitter complainers are the same people who point out that wrestling is fake…

-No matter what’s going on with Kermit, Miss Piggy is keeping busy, whether she’s flirting with Liam Hemsworth or helping the Agent Carter cast in their first installment of the #DubSmashWars (scroll down to see the video).

-I like all the words in this headline: “Helena Bonham Carter to Star in Nick Hornby Adaptation of ‘Love, Nina’ for BBC.”

-Hmmm…I’m conflicted about a lot of the words in this headline: “Cate Blanchett to Play Lucille Ball in Biopic Written by Aaron Sorkin.” I mean, surely they could have gotten somebody, anybody other than Sorkin? My faith in his ability to write female characters was nuked by The Newsroom.

Jimmy Kimmel‘s war against the gaming community is getting very meta.

-On good thing about Mr Robot’s finale being delayed is that it allowed Remi Malek an extra week to do promotion. He was adorable on Kimmel last night, explaining why he owes his role to Emmy Rossum.

Greg Berlanti is soon going to be responsible for every show on TV. But his new one sounds like it has a Hocus Pocus vibe, so I’m in!

Bryan Cranston compared being famous to being a pregnant woman, which is both hilarious and apt.

-I’ve seen a lot of shows on Vulture’s top 100 list. Like, A LOT. I should probably go outside at some point…

-Wait, Rosie O’Donnell is dating Tatum O’Neil?

-I was going to attempt an X Files rewatch before the reboot, but these super fast Vine recaps may be the better solution.

-I somehow managed to get TIFF tickets to Sicario. This new clip makes me think I’ll be watching it from behind my fingers.

Michael Fassbender rises to power in the new Macbeth trailer.
