Gillian Anderson, Cynthia Erivo and More Talk Pay Equity

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson gathered via Zoom for THR’s TV actress roundtable. They discussed pay, with Anderson talking about being offered a tenth of what David Duchovny was offered for the reboot. “That was the point where I was like, “Fuck this. I’m actually going to talk about this [publicly].” Erivo also discussed salary (“I’m a Black woman. That has a lot to do with how you’re paid, how you’re hired, if you’re hired, the way you’re hired — it affects everything”) and how she still has to ask for Black makeup artists on set. “It isn’t about vanity, it’s about making sure that whoever I’m playing is represented in the right way because they understand how to work with my skin tone and my hair.”

-It’s been a not-great week for Matthew Perry. First there was chatter about his appearance on the reunion, and now comes news that he split from fiancée Molly Hurwitz.

-In her new, self-directed video for “Lost Cause,” Billie Eilish hosts a slumber party for a group of girlfriends.

-Now that Taylor Swift has been cast in a David O. Russell movie, all the terrible stories about him are resurfacing. I can’t believe this guy still gets jobs, let alone any actor wants to work with him. Even George Clooney wanted to hurt him.

-Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu wrote an explosive Facebook post about how how frustrated he had become with the show’s producers and his fellow cast members. I’m sure all of his complaints are valid, but this is a surprising flex when you’re about to lead a Marvel movie.

-Thor Love and Thunder is done filming, and the photo that they posted makes me want to write Chris Hemsworth a note excusing him from the gym for the next year.

Ellie Kemper was linked to a white supremacist group after a 22-year-old photo of her surfaced on Twitter but the truth was more complicated — she was crowned Queen of Love and Beauty at an event that had connections to the klan in its early years, but has since become a debutante ball. Still problematic, but less so.

-Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will play Lizzie Bennett in a contemporary rom-com for Netflix that’s “in the spirit of Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.” Yes, I’ll take all the Pride and Prejudice adaptations.

This interview with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga is hilarious. She asks the interviewer over and over if he believes in “spiritual warfare.”

-I work in social media and I don’t believe for a second that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop team posted that photo of Ben Affleck without her knowledge.

Sophia Bush says she was fetishized on One Tree Hill. “My girlfriends from One Tree Hill and I talk about that all the time. We’re like, girls don’t talk to each other the way we had to talk to each other on that show, and also don’t behave the way we had to behave on that show. Come on! That was, like, some gross older man’s fantasy. And it was icky.”

-Every new trailer for Apple TV’s Physical, starring Rose Byrne, gets me more and more excited.

Gael García Bernal fights against time in the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Mark 10 Years

Prince William and Kate Middleton are celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they released new official portraits and a sweet family video. It’s clearly a PR play, but it’s very cute so I’ll take it.

-In less happy royal family news, despite being near each other for Prince Philip‘s funeral, Prince Charles reportedly continued to freeze Harry out and they “barely communicated.”

-Gucci’s new ad campaign involves celebs appearing on a fake talk show, hosted by James Corden. My favourite is Dakota Johnson because she looks like she’s about 2 seconds from pulling her “Actually no, that’s not the truth, Ellen” schtick.

John Mayer is nearing a deal to host his own late-night talk show on Paramount Plus.

Billie Eilish gets up close and personal with a giant snake in her new music video.

Jason Segel and Alexis Mixter have split after eight years together.

Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric took us on a trip down gossip nostalgia lane when they appeared on a podcast and talked about that time Kiefer was supposed to marry Julia Roberts, but she left him for Jason just before the wedding. They were able to repair their friendship and now say they’re besties. Said Jason: “They’ve both subsequently been married since. A couple of times. They’re both very happy in their lives, and what lasted after all of that was me and Kiefer. Thirty-five-year buddies.”

-I don’t hate the podcast trend of TV stars rewatching their old shows. Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke just launched their podcast on The OC, and Scott Patterson is going to recap the Gilmore Girls on a new pod.

-I can’t stop looking at Camila Cabello’s outfit in these photos. I thought it was skirt but that first pic makes me think it’s pants. What?

-Congrats to comedian Hannah Gadsby, who announced on social media yesterday that she got married in January.

-I can’t imagine anyone wanting to go on a cruise post-pandemic. Not even if Gwyneth Paltrow is “curating the programming.”

Willow Smith’s new song is a bop. Meanwhile, on a new episode of Red Table Talk, she talks about her decision to practice polyamory.

Sarah Paulson was spotted wearing a fat suit to play Linda Tripp, and nobody’s happy about it.

-Doctor Who star and filmmaker Noel Clarke has been accused by 20 women of serial sexual predation.

Joe Rogan is backpedaling on his vaccine comments. “I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron, and I’m a cage-fighting commentator who’s a dirty stand-up comedian… I’m not a respected source of information — even for me.”

-The Jeopardy contestant who made a white supremacy hand gesture now insists he didn’t.

-Five suspects have been arrested in connection with stealing Lady Gaga‘s French bulldogs after shooting her dog walker — including a woman who returned the dogs to authorities.​

-Here’s the first trailer for Sweettooth, Netflix’s post-apocalyptic fairytale produced by Robert Downey Jr.

Celebs Praise Jennifer Lopez in Instyle

Jennifer-Lopez-InStyle

Jennifer Lopez’s Instyle cover features quotes about her from a ton of costars and celebrities (though, noticeably, nothing from A-Rod). Among the famous friends singing her praises are Charlize Theron (“To call her a triple threat doesn’t come close to describing her—she’s all of the threats!”), Michelle Obama (“What impresses me the most about her is her unwavering commitment to leverage those gifts and use her platform to give voice to the voiceless”), Matthew McConaughey (“Extremely deliberate, intentional, fully choreographed, and self-aware, she even knows how to make accidents look like accidents”), and — most hilariously — Ben Affleck (“Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?”).

-It’s Thandiwe, Not Thandie. Thandiwe Newton reclaimed her name in British Vogue, explaining the “w” was left out in her first acting credit and it stuck. “That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine.”

-I don’t know if I’m just getting used to the at-home fashions or if stars/stylists are really learning how to bring it, but the SAG Awards outfits were some of the best we’ve seen in ages.

-Last night’s SAG Awards marked the first time in its history that all four film acting categories went to actors of color. It also revealed how wide open the Oscar race really is. Is this what it looks like when stars can’t campaign? I love it!

-Rapper DMX overdosed on Friday night which triggered a heart attack, and the prognosis is not looking good.

Regé-Jean Page will not be returning for Bridgerton season two, saying he was only contracted for a one-season arc. I mean, he’s right, and I don’t think it’s as big of a deal as people seem to be making it out to be. The second season follows the second book, which means the main focus was always going to be on Anthony and Kate, so Simon and Daphne would be pushed to the background regardless. A couple of cameos would have been nice (especially in the Pall Mall scene), but I hope his absence doesn’t keep people away from the show. Not only will this season focus on the book series’ BEST couple, it will be led by an openly gay actor and a British-Indian actress — and that’s pretty effing boss.

Apple Martin roasts her mom Gwyneth Paltrow‘s morning routine in a new TikTok: “She just prances around the bathroom putting on her millions of Goop glow products…Then she gets to working making some more vagina eggs and vagina candles and vagina perfumes. Just everything vagina.”

-In a new video on her YouTube page, Hailey Bieber chats with a psychologist about the negative effects of social media on mental health.

-Reviews for HBO’s The Nevers suggest the show requires some benefit-of-the-doubt. It’ll be interesting to see what the next batch of episodes looks like since Joss Whedon left the show, because according to Variety, in its current state it “bears so many of his narrative and stylistic hallmarks that it might as well be playing Whedon Bingo.”

-One of the only shows I’m currently watching right now, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, has pretty much lost me. This week’s episode was especially rough.

Armie Hammer has departed The Minutes, a Broadway play which was originally set to debut last year and is now on track to resume production during the 2021-2022 season.

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Circle season 2.

-The final Black Widow trailer arrived this weekend.

-The biggest buzzed Marvel trailer right now is the new one that dropped today for the Loki series on Disney+, which is coming this summer. It looks really, really good.
