Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Engaged

-The summer of quickie celebrity weddings continues! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly engaged after just two months of dating. And he apparently closed down Tiffany’s to get her engagement ring like he’s goddamn Patrick Dempsey or something…

-A new Ronan Farrow exposé is coming later today, and it’s set to be a biggie. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is being accused of sexual misconduct. While THR suggests the investigation alleges unwanted kissing and touching, Farrow suggested the claims in the full story may be more explosive, tweeting: “A quick reminder that I don’t comment on reporting I haven’t published, and if you’re reading about my work from secondary sources you’re often not getting the full or correct story—especially in cases where parties have an interest in downplaying or otherwise spinning.”

Anna Wintour’s final Vogue cover will reportedly be Beyoncé, which is a pretty great way to bow out.

Roseanne Barr doubled down on her race excuse in her Hannity interview. Sigh.

-Today’s Star Wars: Episode IX cast announcement revealed that Mark Hamill would be back (did anyone doubt it?) confirms Billy Dee Williams’ return, added Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie to the cast, and most surprisingly, announced that it will use unreleased Carrie Fisher footage. They also didn’t mention Keri Russell, but she’s still involved.

-I’m here for Ira writing a Neflix show!

-It was a good week for white actresses to be woke on Instagram. Anne Hathaway posted an impassioned response to Nia Wilson‘s murder on Wednesday (“We must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really? Not in our intent, but in our actions? In our lack of action?”), and Minka Kelly defended costar Anna Diop, who left Instagram due to racists.

-The new season of Orange Is The New Black dropped today to mixed reviews.

-BBC Radio 1 canceled an interview with Logan Paul, saying it “didn’t meet our standards.” I’ve actually unfollowed Chloe Bennet on Insta because her stories are all about him cuddling her dog, and I just can’t.

-I love that everyone is pointing out that Amy Adams’ character on Sharp Objects is the worst reporter ever.

-I’m feeling Jennifer Garner‘s opinion of camping in the trailer for her upcoming HBO comedy.

Tom Cruise made James Corden jump out of a plane and this entire video is amazing. Look, if you need to skydive in order to goose your talk show’s ratings, you couldn’t ask for a better cheerleader than Cruise.

 

Michelle Williams Reveals She’s Married: “I Never Gave Up on Love”

michelle-williams-vanity-fair

Michelle Williams‘ new Vanity Fair cover story is very good. There is a bit of set up weirdness (the writer mocks the typical profile intro of writing about what the actress is wearing or eating — and then does it?), but the interview itself is great. Williams reveals that she recently got married (“I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free”), reflects on the lessons she learned from her pay-gap scandal, which she credits Jessica Chastain for helping bring to light, and talks about her new TV series produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“When they told me about it, I thought, O.K., now comes the part where I have to go in kicking and screaming and shouting about equality and transparency…Then, before I could even ask for it, they said, ‘They’ve offered you what Sam Rockwell is making.’ I cried”).

Demi Lovato is reportedly going to rehab straight from the hospital. Thank goodness; I hope she turns it around. (Also, it’s sweet that Wilmer Valderrama visited her in the hospital.)

Jenna Dewan calls her split from Channing Tatum “a positive thing” and “the new normal” in her People profile.

-I always forgot that Beyoncé has twins. And then she posts a photo of them and I remember all over again. Every. Single. Time.

-Also, Amber Rose says Gwyneth Paltrow is the ‘Becky with the good hair’ referenced in Beyonce‘s song ‘Sorry’. WHAT.

Meghan Markle is apparently having issues with the Queen’s bedtime rule and I can’t say I blame her. (Though I think I’d have way more trouble with the ‘you can’t keep eating if the Queen has finished her meal’ rule. That’s madness.)

Karlie Kloss posted an Insta story in which she shared screenshots of famous friends like Serena Williams (but not Taylor!) reacting to news of her engagement on FaceTime, and in doing so revealed Princess Beatrice’s private account.

Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell‘s Lifetime series You has been given an early season 2 renewal, even though the first season hasn’t started airing yet. Considering how the book ends, I don’t get what this is going to be.

-Also, Badgley’s answer to whether he’d be up for a Gossip Girl reboot? “I’d do it if I could kill them.”

-Wait, so the Buffy reboot is not a reboot after all? It’ll just be in the same universe? Why didn’t they just say that in the first place?!? All of these reboot announcements need some serious workshopping.

-It’s official! As unbelievable as this remains to me, Kristen Stewart will lead the cast of Elizabeth BanksCharlie’s Angels reboot. (Unfortunately despite early talks, Lupita Nyong’o will not be one of the angels. They will be Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.)

-On the Tonight Show, Nanette comedian Hannah Gadsby described her awkward first encounter with Emma Thompson, which ended with them crying on each other’s shoulders and Hannah accidentally texting Emma a photo of Chuck Norris.

-The cast of The Walking Dead did impressions of Negan in front of Jeffrey Dean MorganDanai Gurira was my fave.

-Also, Norman Reedus said he and Andrew Lincoln had a pact to leave The Walking Dead together. Oopsie!

-In a move pretty much everyone in Hollywood should copy these days, Rian Johnson has deleted all of his old tweets. He explained: “No official directive at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad. But it’s nine years of stuff written largely off the cuff as ephemera, if trolls scrutinizing it for ammunition is the new normal, this seems like a ‘why not?’ move.”

-The critic embargo for The Spy That Dumped Me was just lifted and the reviews are…not good. Like, really. I’m still gonna watch the crap out of it, tho.

-Speaking of movies I’m going to watch the crap outta, The Hating Game is being adapted for the big screen! This is hands-down my favourite fluffy book which I re-read whenever I’m stressed. Which means I re-read it A LOT. In my fantasy casting, I see Anna Kendrick or Zoey Deutch for Lucy, and Matthew Goode or Mike Colter for Josh. Make it go, Hollywood!

-Speaking of romcoms, I love that Crazy Rich Asians is tracking high. (Also, Awkwafina is hosting the MMVAs.)

Carlton Cuse‘s adaptation of Locke & Key has finally found a home on Netflix. People *adore* this comic book.

-Despite superstar careers, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are bringing Flight Of The Conchords back to HBO for a live special.

Natalie Portman plays a NASA space captain in Noah Hawley‘s film directorial debut. As someone on Twitter mentioned, she looks exactly like Mike from Stranger Things.

Jennifer Lopez Celebrates Birthday with Champers and Abs

Jennifer Lopez turned 49 and celebrated like this. Not all superheroes wear capes.

-Once I realized the writer of Gwyneth Paltrow’s NYT profile was Taffy Brodesser-Akner, I knew it was going to be good — but it’s so, so good! Sure, there’s topical quotes on the backlash to her “conscious uncoupling” announcement (“I think that was an instance where it really hit me that an insouciance with language from me is different than from somebody else”) and her relationship with Harvey Weinstein (“The one time that Harvey propositioned me was really almost the least of it in terms of how onerous that relationship was’). But the real meat of it is Brodesser-Akner’s examination of her strategy. Paltrow talks about getting more blog hits every time someone criticizes Goop’s ludicrous advice and products (“I can monetize those eyeballs”) and how she parted ways with Condé Nast when it came to publishing the Goop magazine because they had “old school”  rules like insisting articles be fact-checked.

-Meanwhile, Dr. Jen Gunter, one of Paltrow’s most vocal critics, had some thoughts on the article: “Paltrow monetizes the vagina, which is what I have called her out for. Women are harmed by the perpetuation of vaginal myths. It’s internet traffic for her. It’s women crying to me.”

Demi Moore and Ed Helms might be dating? Really????

Natasha Rothwell (who plays the amazing Kelli on Insecure and stole the entire movie in Love Simon) just signed on to Wonder Woman 1984.

-This deep-dive into Leonardo DiCaprio‘s new obsession with beach volleyball slayed me.

-There’s a new Netflix show that’s being called Gossip Girl meets Big Little Lies and it’s like they’ve crafted it out of my brain’s source code.

-People titled their latest cover story “Inside the Mysteries of Tom Cruise’s Life at 56″ but they really don’t delve into any mysteries, instead opting for a softball profile.

-A Frasier revival with Kelsey Grammer is in the works? For real? Come on, Hollywood. At least pretend to try.

-Comic-Con behind-the-scene videos always offer fascinating glimpses on how castmembers react when they are together offset. The Flash ladies seem a little, um, tense. On the other end of the spectrum, the Arrow cast is super touchy-feely.

-AMC had cleared Chris Hardwick to return to Talking Dead on Aug 12 after their investigation into sexual assault claims by ex-girlfriend.

-At the first day of the TCAs, HBO confirmed that the long-awaited Deadwood movie is finally happening: “It’s been a logistics nightmare getting all the cast members’ schedules together, but we are there. It is greenlit.”

-Meanwhile, the HBO boss defended Westworld after the critical backlash: ‘It’s not for casual viewers.’ (He probably could have dropped the word ‘casual’.)

-Also at the HBO panel, Jenni Konner addressed her split from producing partner Lena Dunham after they ended an eight-year partnership: “There’s no drama.”

-At the Facebook on-demand panel, things got combative when reporters pressed them to defend their decision to include Fox News and Infowars on their platform.

Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning star in the apocalypse drama I Think We’re Alone Now.
