Phoebe Waller-Bridge Talks Taking Over Hollywood


Phoebe Waller-Bridge is on the cover of THR, talking about her secret new movie (“The day I wrapped ‘Fleabag,’ I went to bed thinking, ‘I’m never going to have another idea again. Oh shit.’ I woke up with the vision of this film”), and being hired to punch up the script for the upcoming Bond film (“A lot has been made of me coming on board because I’m a woman, and that’s wonderful. But also I can’t take credit for the movie that was written. It’s [director] Cary [Joji Fukunaga]’s movie”). Also, I had no idea she’s dating Three Billboards filmmaker Martin McDonagh.

-People mag is quoting a source close to Miley Cyrus who says that there’s a possibility that she might reunite with Liam Hemsworth. “They both agreed it’s better to spend time apart, but this doesn’t mean their relationship is completely over.”

-Here’s photos of Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost kissing during a beachside stroll in the Hamptons, just in case you were worried that they weren’t living their most smug best lives.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk were also spotted on a Hamptons stroll. Is there nothing else to do there?

-Here’s Oprah and Gayle King being quizzed on the meaning of internet slang like “snack” and “thicc.” The fact that Oprah immediately tries to use each word in a sentence as soon as she learns what it mean is precious.

A$AP Rocky has been found guilty in Sweden but will serve no more jail time.

-So I guess those blind items about a starlet who made a deal with Pornhub were about Bella Thorne.

This thread about this season of The Handmaid’s Tale pretty much sums up my feelings on it. I gave up halfway through but tuned back in for the finale and though I thought the last episode was effective, it didn’t make up for the meandering season.

-This is Netflix’s next cheesy romcom with possibly the worst title I’ve ever seen and I’m super here for it.

-There was an OC cast reunion at the airport this week.

-This deep dive into Jeremy Renner’s ridiculous Jeep commercials is just what I needed this week.

-We’re getting more info behind Universal’s decision to scrap The Hunt. Apparently execs and the filmmakers received death threats, and the studio’s internal security got involved. It was still a bad call, IMO.

-Forget those rumours that Anna Wintour is leaving Vogue. Not only is she staying, she’s getting a promotion. Anyone else getting some ‘third act of Devil Wears Prada’ maneuvering vibes?

-This clip of Kate McKinnon, who plays Ruth Bader Ginsburg on SNL, meeting her last night is cute.

-Marc Cherry’s soapy new CBS drama Why Women Kill, starring Lucy Liu and Ginnifer Goodwin, is getting good reviews.

-This is an interesting look on how Netflix will have to change its strategy soon. Between them refusing to give critics screeners for Mindhunter’s new season, and cancelling Tuca and Bertie (which a lot of people didn’t even know existed, even though it starred Tiffany Haddish and was from the Bojack creators), something’s gotta give. I’ve noticed they’ve started a weekly “what’s new this week” show on social media so things don’t get lost in the shuffle, but the fact that I recently watched the last season of Bojack and the algorithm didn’t even prompt me to watch Tuca and Bertie is a problem.

-2 Dope Queens star Phoebe Robinson just landed her own Comedy Central interview show. I recently went to a screening of Magic Mike XXL that she moderated, and she deserves all the good things.

-Here’s the trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s Palme d’Or winning film, Parasite. I really hope this comes to TIFF. All I’ve heard about it is that you should go in knowing as little as possible because the end will blow your mind.

-Here’s the Last Christmas trailer, directed by Paul Feig and starring Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding and Emma Thompson. Look, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this film since they first announced it, but this trailer has me (and pretty much the entire romance-reading population) thinking he’s going to end up being a ghost or an angel, and I’m not here for that.

Camila Cabello Helps Shawn Mendes Celebrate His 21st Bday

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes look so damn good together that I don’t even care if it’s fake at this point. Here’s my new straight-out-of-fanfic headcanon: they were set up by their publicists to generate buzz for their collab, but after spending so much time together they’ve both actually developed feelings, and now it’s turning into the real deal. Don’t take this away from me with logic!

Taylor Swift‘s fans are so good at deciphering clues that if I ever get accused of a murder I’m going to hire them as my defense. Now they’re convinced they’ve pieced together clues that prove she’s going to marry her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.

-If this little promo clip is any indication, Kelly Clarkson‘s new talk show is going to be adorabs.

Kevin Feige is doing god’s work by gifting us with yet another story about how Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t seem to know much about the MCU. At the Marvel Studios 10th-anniversary photo, he says she didn’t know why Sam Jackson was there. “The other actors [jumped] in saying, ‘What are you talking about? He’s Nick Fury! You’ve been in movies with him!'”

-This deep dive into the Netflix lobbying machine is fascinating.

Sean Astin is confused about why photos of him cuddling an otter went viral, but he’s rolling with it.

-I usually hate the way Armie Hammer uses Twitter, but I will accept this.

-I finally got around to watching the 90201 revival — and I kinda loved it? Which was surprising, but not as surprising as checking Twitter to see what other people thought and seeing so many angry tweets about how the cast was playing fictionalized versions of themselves instead of it being a straight-up reboot. They were pretty clear about that in the promotion, no?

Tommy Lee is making a lot of sense. My world is askew.

-Succession season 2 debuts this weekend on HBO, and critics are loving it. I forgot how much I love this show.

Idris Elba is always charming, even when he’s dying from eating hot wings.

-This is a fascinating thread about how each episode of the Simpsons is dubbed into two different versions for French markets: a Quebec French version, and a France French version.

-This makes it sound like HBO was more than ready to get rid of the Game of Thrones creators, which frankly, I get.

-Jason Momoa is standing strong, saying he can’t film Aquaman 2 over his protest of construction in Hawaii.

-Here’s the first trailer for the Jason Bourne-inspired TV series Treadstone.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Perfect Part

gwyneth paltrow the politician

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter with Ben Platt to promote Ryan Murphy‘s new Netflix show The Politician, in which she plays Platt’s ultra-rich, entitled stepmom. Has there ever been a more perfect headline than “Wealth & Privilege & Gwyneth”? She talks about working with husband Brad Falchuk, who co-created the show (“It’s so fun to be working with someone who you’re in love with. I was like, ‘Agh! He’s so hot, he’s so talented, this is so fun'”) and is hilariously dismissive of playing the game (“I’m definitely going to do some promotion. As little as I can get away with, but still”).

Taylor Swift dredges up her Kim Kardashian feud for her Vogue cover story.

-Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller Bridge was adorable (and adorably naughty) while playing Think Fast! with Jimmy Fallon.

-The 90210 premiere scored the best series premiere of the summer, with ratings more than double the best performance by any other broadcast scripted series this season.

-Meanwhile, Shannen Doherty says she definitely wasn’t going to do the show — “They didn’t need me, so it just wasn’t, at that moment, what I wanted to be doing” — but when Luke Perry passed away things “drastically changed” and she saw it as an opportunity to honour him.

-Stellar human being Emma Watson and Time’s Up UK announced a workplace harassment hotline.

-Stellar human being No 2 Danny Trejo played a real-life hero yesterday when he helped rescue a baby trapped in an overturned car after a collision at a Los Angeles intersection.

-The mukbang trend has officially peaked: Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski’s did a sponcon one.

-In the latest “white men fail up” news, the Game Of Thrones creators just closed a $200M Netflix deal. On the plus side, it looks like this means Confederate is dead in the water.

-Figure skater Scott Moir is engaged to someone who isn’t Tessa Virtue and my Twitter TL is all up in their feels about it.

-Oh my god, there’s a chance that Happy Endings might be revived and I NEED IT. Do you know how many times I’ve referenced “whore’s bath” in my life? (Spoiler alert: too many times.)

-Now that Schitt’s Creek has won over fans in the US, it looks like Letterkenny is the next Canadian comedy up to bat.

Michelle Williams will reprise her role as Anne/She-Venom in Andy Serkis’ Venom 2. Get that Marvel money, girl.

Antonio Banderas plays a director whose heyday is behind him in the Pain and Glory trailer, the latest from Pedro Almodóvar.
