Armie Hammer Really Knows How To Wear Sweaters

armie hammer GQ call me by your name

Armie Hammer covers British GQ (as does his Call Me By Your Name costar Timothée Chalamet), and everyone is drooling over this pic of him in a sweater. After seeing him at TIFF I have a lot of conflicting feelings about him. He’s super dreamy IRL, but he also did a panel discussion with Chalamet and his behaviour was…not my favourite.

-Move over, GOOP. Shonda Rhimes just launched her own lifestyle site.

Elsie Hewitt, a 21-year-old model, filed a civil lawsuit yesterday against actor Ryan Phillippe for allegedly kicking, punching and throwing her down the stairs after an argument on July 4. His camp is telling People that it was Hewitt who attacked him after he broke up with her.

-Meanwhile Philippe’s ex-girlfriend had an interesting tweet

-Congrats to Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and wife Lauren, who are expecting their first child.  Brace yourself for even more gushy social media posts (which I find weirdly endearing, tbh).

-The guy who cast most of the CW shows says the network originally wanted Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis to play Blair & Serena on Gossip Girl.

-I like that Prince William is comfortable enough about balding to crack jokes about it.

Jada Pinkett Smith is shooting down Leah Remini‘s claims that she’s a Scientologist, tweeting “I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist. I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist.”

Elisabeth Moss wrote “f*ck off” on the bottom of her Emmy shoes. Cute — but still doesn’t make me like her outfit.

Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman politely struggling over who gets to hold the Emmy is giving me life!

-I really like this piece about the conflicting emotions of being a Louis CK fan. It took me way too long to disconnect from him too.

-So Jennifer Lawrence is the type to shout “we’re going down” when her flight hits turbulence. Sounds like she’d be swell to sit next to…

Ansel Elgort‘s new movie looks like it might have a white saviour problem.  Not cool, Hollywood.

Blake Lively Used to Send Leonardo DiCaprio Pictures of Dolls

-I’m having a rough week, so forgive me if I choose to believe this Vanity Fair interview with the Gossip Girl cast for the show’s 10-year anniversary is a personal gift to me from the universe. There’s lots of great tidbits, including how Blake Lively and Leighton  Meester “were not friends,” how Blake and Penn Badgley hid their breakup from the crew for months, and how Blake used to send photos of dolls to Leonardo DiCaprio when they dated. I also love how Leighton just sounds *so* over it, and Ed Westwick admits he still doesn’t know who Gossip Girl is.

Leah Remini says she refused to try to convert Kevin James to Scientology despite the organization pressuring her to do so. And now he’s gifted her with a sitcom role, so that all worked out for her.

-Blade Runner 2049 is rumoured to be the longest blockbuster since Interstellar. All the sighs.

-After 27 seasons—27!!!—Simpsons composer Alf Clausen has been fired.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are reportedly in couple’s therapy to learn how to be better co-parents. I’m rooting for them, however their family looks.

Kanye West is now being counter-sued by his insurer, who points to their drug and alcohol policies.

-Here’s the first trailer for Mr. Robot season three. I kinda forgot about that show.

-Of course TJ Miller is a frequent Yelp reviewer. Of course he is.

Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves teaming up for a movie is making my inner 90s geek so very happy.

-I feel like we’ve all talked about Justin Bieber’s testicles way too much this week, and it’s only Wednesday.

-This explanation of the Sansa/Ayra stuff from this season of Game of Thrones makes me hate it even more.

-Yikes. Katy Perry is reportedly being sued by a stagehand who lost her toe.

-I can’t believe there are no new movies at the box office this weekend. I can’t remember the last time that happened. And it’s a long weekend!

-I’m bummed that I can’t fit Alexander Payne‘s Downsizing into my TIFF schedule, especially since the reviews out of Venice are so good.

Arrested Development Previews Look Promising

-As much as I love and adore Arrested Development, I’ve been a bit nervous about the prospect of a new season. I mean, it’s been seven years. Would they be able to recapture the magic? But this new outtake featuring Lucille and Buster has done a lot to restore my faith. The new character posters are also pretty damn glorious.

Gwyneth Paltrow jumped on the side-butt bandwagon and wore a sheer paneled Antonio Berardi gown that was both daring and terrible at last night’s Iron Man 3 premiere. I think the Fug Girls said it best: “It’s not even expensive-looking or flattering sheerness. It’s like someone slaughtered several pairs of L’Eggs.”

-Speaking of Iron Man 3, expect it to be a monster at the box office. It doesn’t open for another week, and already it’s making up 25% of all movie tickets being sold right now. More than 400 screenings have already sold out.

Steve Martin was pretty adorable on Letterman this week, talking about being a new dad.

-Speaking of late night TV, Tom Cruise should do all future interviews with Emily Blunt by his side. They’re pretty great together.

-Here’s Beyonce’s new short film for H&M, directed by Jonas Åkerlund. Yawn.

Jimmy Kimmel chugged five drinks during his Time 100 speech and the results were marvellous.

Jennifer Love Hewitt may be brought on as a judge on The X-Factor? Who wants that?

-It looks like Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick and Jessica Szhor are back together. (Also, I love that he dresses even douchier than his GG character IRL.)

-The guest star list for The Office finale has been released. Steve Carell‘s name is not on it, but there’s no way he’s not coming back.

Edward Norton is being investigated for harassment after a heated run-in with a pap.

Vampire Diaries star Daniel Gillies is having a good week. Not only is tonight’s episode serving as a backdoor spinoff for his character, but Showtime just bought two films he wrote and stars in. (Fun fact: did you know he’s married to Rachel Leigh Cook?)

In this video, New Girl‘s Jake Johnson previews a big Nick and Jess moment in next week’s episode.

-In case you were wondering, Rihanna and Ciara still appear to hate each other.

Grimes wants you to stop referring to her as a waif, ok?

-If this royalty thing doesn’t work out, Prince Harry could have a promising career as a news anchor.

-Just in case you didn’t find her annoying enough, Jessica Alba says she wore a double corset day and night to lose her baby weight.

The backlash against Zach Braff‘s Kickstarter hasn’t stopped him from nearly reaching his $2 million goal in just two days.

-The guy who played Bunk on The Wire tried to make a prequel about the show starring Samuel L. Jackson.

Justin Bieber‘s unlucky streak continues. Drugs and a stun gun were found in his empty tour bus by Swedish police. Also, he’s getting flack for reportedly showing up to a photo shoot six hours late and refusing to change.

Justin Timberlake got all gushy about his marriage on Ellen.

-You may not have heard of comedian Nathan Fielder, but that’s probably going to change this week. He just asked his Twitter followers to pull a drug dealing prank on their parents, and the results are hilarious.

-The new trailer for Monsters University is pretty cute.
