Tiffany Haddish Talks Pay Parity

tiffany haddish equal pay

-For the 2018 Power of Women issue, Variety profiled five women—Emma Gonzalez, Lena Waithe, Tiffany Haddish, Natalie Portman, and Regina King—about how they’re using their power for good.

-This entire Tiffany Haddish interview is excellent but I really like her take on why women should speak to each other more openly about salaries and perks. “I think the reason why, a lot times, we don’t get paid the same as men do is because we don’t talk about it. I think we do need to talk about it because I sure get in there and I’m like, ‘Hey, Kate Hudson. How much do they pay you for that? What kind of perks do you get for that?’ I didn’t know they could fill your room up with whatever kind of food you want. That’s why I done gained so much weight, because she told me about all the food you can get. I’m like, you can bring me some tacos and I want an In-N-Out burger.”

-This weekend, Taylor Swift broke her usual stance about not mentioning politics and endorsed two Democratic candidates in Tennessee — and it looks like it may have made a huge impact. Following her Instagram post, Vote.org experienced their second biggest traffic spike, and in the first 48 hours since her post, the site had 240,ooo new voter registrants. Tennessee has seen 5,183 registrations this month so far, half of which came after her post. To put that into perspective, Tennessee saw only 2,811 registrations in the entire month of September.

-Congrats to Suits star Patrick Adams and Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario, who welcomed a baby girl.

Dakota Johnson is fighting a lot of rumours this week. She and Chris Martin hosted a party that happened to have some pink and blue balloons, and everyone assumed (incorrectly) that it was a gender reveal party. She’s also fighting rumours that she’s in a secret affair with Jamie Dornan. (Anyone with eyeballs just has to watch an interview with those two to dispel that one…)

-Stranger Things David Harbour will officiate a wedding in full Hellboy costume for 666k re-tweets. (I kinda like this game where he does ridiculous things for retweets, though I’m getting a little nervous about how far he’s going to take it.)

-A passage that leaked from Busy Philipps’ forthcoming memoir details an alleged assault by James Franco on the set of Freaks and Geeks. The script called for her character to gently nudge him in the chest. Philipps writes that the scripted gesture caused Franco to get so upset, he allegedly “grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN!’ And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.” Her costar Linda Cardellini suggested that Philipps report what happened to her manager.

-The fact that Brie Larson is still in Jacob Trembley’s life makes me happy.

-Also making me happy: how much fun Jason Momoa and Mark Ruffalo appear to be having together.

-Ha ha ha. James Gunn may move to DC to write and direct the next Suicide Squad movie.

-Next year’s MET Gala will be co-chaired by Lady Gaga, Serena Williams and Harry Styles.

-I liked this piece questioning whether Lady Gaga‘s character “sells out” in A Star Is Born. I dug the movie, but it was very weird how it leaned so heavily into a 2004-ish debate about how rock auteurs are so much more authentic than pop stars. I’m kind of surprised Gaga didn’t push back on that.

-Reflecting on her 20s, Gwyneth Paltrow recalls being so naïve and arrogant, her own father once warned her, “You’re acting like a dick.”

Rupert Everett might actually be my spirit animal. In a red carpet interview he said: “I’d like to be dead quite soon. I can’t really deal with the modern world, to be quite honest. I’m very anti-virtual. I do [have an email address] unfortunately. I’m always thinking of stopping it.”

-Apparently there’s always been a lot of sexy subtext in the Venom comics, but the fact that critics are calling the film a “rom-com” and the internet is now shipping Tom Hardy‘s character with the parasite who lives within him actually makes me want to see this thing!

Riz Ahmed and Tom Hardy explained UK slang for us.

Helena Bonham Carter talked about working with Harvey Weinstein: “He knew how to get you Oscar nominations. Both my [Oscar] nominations are due to him… [But] I found the way he treated certain people chilling—without any kind of respect. There were many times I disagreed with the way he behaved, and I don’t mean sexually.”

-The 11th season of Doctor Who, which stars Jodie Whittaker as the first woman to play the title role and got rave reviews, grew from last season’s premiere in ratings, while The Walking Dead suffered a new premiere ratings low. It’s like the universe is righting itself…

-Here’s our first look at Ruby Rose’s Batwoman look in the Arrowverse. It’s a great costume, which is atypical for the CW. But it’s a terrible wig, which is very typical for the CW.

-EgyptAir is shifting blame for that terrible Drew Barrymore interview to an ad agency. Sure.

Kanye West is set to meet with Trump and Jared Kushner at the White House on Thursday to discuss prison reform and reducing the violence in Chicago. Oh, problems solved then!

-Aw man, I clearly have to renew my Amazon Prime membership, because the trailer for Good Omens starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant looks great.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Renée Zellweger and Jacqueline Bisset star in the Here and Now trailer.

Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms Marriage to Brad Falchuk

Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk got married this weekend, which she confirmed with an Insta pic of their simple wedding bands. The intimate ceremony at her Hamptons home was reportedly attended by Robert Downey Jr., Jerry Seinfeld, Rob Lowe, Steven Spielberg, and Cameron Diaz.

Cardi B turned herself into the NYPD today and was given a summons in connection with an assault at a strip club, during which she allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders because they may have slept with Offset. Her lawyers denied her involvement and she’ll appear in court at a later date.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Matthew Weiner addressed Mad Men writer Kater Gordon‘s accusation that he once told her she owed it to him to let him see her naked, saying “I really don’t remember saying that. I’m not hedging to say it’s not impossible that I said that, but I really don’t remember saying it.” (When the reporter called him back to clarify his statement a few days later, he said “I know this seems weird, but I can’t imagine that I used the word ‘hedging.'” She checked; he did.)

-The news that Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp might be dating is exactly what our hardened hearts need right now.

-I think my enjoyment of A Star Is Born is going to be dependent on how much I avoid Bradley Cooper‘s interviews about it. In W, he says he lost out on roles early in his career because he was told he wasn’t f–kable enough. As an Alias fan, I’m finding this hard to reconcile because I remember him being EXTREMELY f–kable on that show.

Matt Damon‘s Kavanaugh impression reportedly came together just hours before the SNL premiere.  Colin Jost ran the idea past Damon sometime after midnight on Friday, and the actor flew from California on Sat and arrived at SNL’s 30 Rock studio at 4 p.m. to begin rehearsals.

-Meanwhile, in a pro-Trump speech after SNL went off the air, Kanye West said he was “bullied” backstage for wearing MAGA hat. He then talked about the 13th amendment in a tweet that did NOT go over well.

West also says he’s trying to arrange a meeting between Colin Kaepernick and Trump.

-Netflix is planning to roll out interactive features on shows including Black Mirror that will enable viewers to choose their own endings. Man, this seems like a super bad idea.

-I’m very into this suggestion that Dev Patel be considered as the next Bond. Very, very into it.

Taylor Swift showed up to support boyfriend Joe Alwyn at Friday’s premiere of The Favourite, a movie critics are LOVING.

-This is a great profile on Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Synder and how she’s bucking the current “prestige TV” trends (dark, slow, gruesome, gritty, miserable, male, etc.)  “When Jane started I was really, actively thinking, ‘Can a protagonist be an interesting person if they’re also a really good person? Can their life be complicated if they’re not doing all these terrible things and forced into these extreme situations?'”

-People are going nuts for this essay about The English Patient.

-Yikes — this review of Jennifer Garner’s HBO show Camping is pretty scathing. It’ll be interesting to see if other critics agree.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Runaways, I show I really liked and then promptly forgot about.

-Watch Taron Egerton play Elton John in the Rocketman trailer.

Blake Lively Promotes A Simple Favor In The Weirdest Way Possible

-I enjoyed A Simple Favor way more than I thought I would despite the movie’s incessant plugging of Ryan Reynolds‘ gin brand (Paul Feig knows how to use Anne Kendrick‘s quirkiness and comic timing better than anyone else), but what the hell is this promo image that Blake Lively just tweeted?! The movie is doing well. They don’t need to do this.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are getting married this weekend, and tonight’s rehearsal dinner is reportedly being hosted by Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld. Apparently the actual wedding will take place at her Hamptons home and will have only 20 guests.

-Pretty Little Liars’ star Ashley Benson is dating Cara Delevingne? Wut?

Jodie Whittaker explaining that her hometown is nicknamed “shat” in front of Ryan Gosling is good content. (I love her so much. When she does that proud little hair flip after Bradley Cooper asks if her husband is from Tucson? Amazing.)

Malia Obama appears in a music video for a band comprised of her fellow Harvard students, and it looks like she’s living her best life.

Riley Keough tweeted that she wanted to be cast in Riverdale — and now she is! I gave up on that show halfway through the first season, but this is a really good get for the CW.

-Tom Hardy being interviewed by kids is a whole lotta cute.

Bill Murray defended Dustin Hoffman against sexual harassment claims, calling him a “flirt.”  THIS IS NOT THE WEEK, BILL!

-For the first time in network TV history, shows with actors of color in lead roles outnumber shows with predominantly white casts. Buzzfeed talked to all of the heads of the networks about how this year the broadcasters may FINALLY have turned the corner on diversity.

-Speaking of great long reads, this feature on Robyn is excellent.

-Just ONE DAY after its first trailer dropped, Fox has pushed Dark Phoenix from Feb 14 to June 7. This is the film’s second major delay, though there’s speculation they may be planning a crossover with the MCU.

Bradley Cooper has denied reports that he’s going to take over from James Gunn as the director of the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

-Someone made a 10-minute loop of Lady Gaga belting out the best part of “Shallow” from A Star is Born, and wow I really needed that today.

-A Maroon 5 fan was arrested after storming the stage and confronting Adam Levine during last night’s Toronto gig. (It’s always interesting to see moments like this when singers are shocked into inaction but the song just keeps on going. That’s quite the backing vocal he’s got, there.)

Cardi B is reinventing herself as a fashion icon and it’s kinda working for me…

-Here’s the first trailer for Showtime’s Wall Street comedy Black Monday about the 1987 stock market crash starring Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells and Regina Hall.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly reunite in the Holmes & Watson trailer.
