TV Stars Strike a Pose for Vanity Fair

vanity-fair-emmys

-My god, the photos and GIFs in Vanity Fair’s Emmy spread are *scrumptious*! The shoot features Sophie Turner, Bill Hader, Dan Levy, Mandy Moore, Natasha Lyonne, Kieran Culkin, Tony Hale, Jharrel Jerome, Gina Rodriguez, and Regina Hall.

-Variety’s Actors on Actors interviews continue to roll out. In the lateset, Michelle Williams and Patricia Clarkson talk how TV has evolved since Dawsons Creek, Emilia Clarke tells Regina Hall that she had to be sewn into her Game of Thrones costumes, and Don Cheadle asks Sacha Baron Cohen of his stunt interviews with politicians “How do get past their team? How aren’t you vetted properly?”

-Television critics are calling Miley Cryus‘ episode of Black Mirror one of the worst in the franchise’s history, which makes me really, really want to watch it.

-Jezebel published a shitty clickbait article about actors who are bad (with no context for their argument — it’s just a list!). I like this thread disputing some of their most egregious inclusions. I’m not going to fight anyone over Ashton Kutcher or Mark Wahlberg, but Brie Larson? Gwyneth Paltrow? Amy freakin’ Adams??!?

Mindy Kaling pronounces ‘charcuterie’ in a really cute way.

-In a lengthy IG post, Madonna pushed back on that recent that New York Times profile, writing “To say that I was disappointed in the article would be an understatement.” She wrote that she “felt raped” by the experience, adding “And yes I’m allowed to use that analogy having been raped at the age of 19.” (Um, are you though??) I didn’t love the way the profile was handled and the constant mentions of her age were overkill, but I do think that the fact that she’s 60 and trying to stay contemporary is a relevant topic to explore.

-It’s still one year until Wonder Woman 1984 comes out, but since DC isn’t going to ComicCon Patty Jenkins decided to throw us a bone by revealing Diana’s bitchin’ new look.

-The review embargo for Big Little Lies season 2 was just lifted, and the majority of reviews are pretty positive, with almost everyone gushing about Meryl Streep’s performance.

-Speaking of BLL, I just did a Summer TV Preview and man I’ve gotta start watching TV again. There’s so much coming!

Brad Pitt has ordered those ridiculous Straight Pride parade organizers to cease using his name and image.

Halle Berry doesn’t remember much about her Oscar win: “”Very shortly after I got that statue, I became inebriated to the point that the whole night is awash.”

Emma Thompson doesn’t have a lot of time for guys whining about how they don’t know how to act in the age of Me Too: “Get a grip guys, it’s not rocket science. You just behave with respect and courtesy. Now shut up and get on with it.”

-The rumbles of trouble in paradise for Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk continue to get louder.

Tig Notaro has a new webseries where she interviews celebrities — and she has no idea who they are. The James Vanderbeek one is great.

Michelle Williams, Julianne Moore and Billy Crudup star in the After the Wedding trailer.

Lana Condor Talks Pressure, Eating Disorders in Elle Canada

Lana Condor Elle

-In her new Elle Canada cover story, TATBILB’s Lana Candor talks about the pressures of being famous and having to look a certain way: “You’re kind of the first person I’ve talked to about this, but I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia — and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that. I think it’s time to give people comfort. You have to eat. You have to stop thinking that a certain body shape is ideal, because it’s not.”

-The review embargo lifted for Captain Marvel this morning, and since then it’s fluctuated between 85%-91% on Rotten Tomatoes. Suck it, haters!

-I absolutely love the pants Gemma Chan wore to the Captain Marvel premiere — but I absolutely believe that she’s the only person who could pull them off. I also really liked Brie Larson’s look.

-Did Halle Berry pull a Ben Affleck with a full back tat?

Kanye West is making a legal bid to “obtain his freedom” from publishers and record companies and it’s easy to see why. There’s a portion of his EMI deal that contractually forbids him from retiring.

-This collection of stories about how kind and awesome Luke Perry was wrecked me.

-The trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones is here and it’s really dark. (As in, it’s literally too dark to see much. Is it just me?)

-Catastrophe starts airing on CBC tonight. God, I love this show.

This video of Meghan Markle meeting a 92-year-old fan is so, so lovely.

-The director of Hereditary is back with a new film, Midsommar, that I will never see because I’m a giant wimp, but the idea of a horror movie that takes place entirely in the sunshine is genius.

Ethan Hawke makes being a hostage look like fun in the trailer for Stockholm.

-In Variety’s Emmy’s morning-after interview, This Is Us star Sterling K Brown opens up about his historic win. He also revealed that his naked butt was cut out of his new movie with Kate Hudson. Boo-urns, Hollywood!

-For THR’s fashion issue, celebrities talk about the first time they met their fave designer. I don’t know why Jen Meyers is practically sitting in Jennifer Aniston’s lap, though.

Halle Berry, 51, stepped out with new boyfriend Alex Da Kid, 35, hours after going Instagram official.

-The woman in Kevin Hart‘s sex tape is denying any involvement in the alleged extortion plot.

-The Ryan Philippe plot thickens.

-The best part of the Gossip Girl 10-year anniversary is all of the think pieces. I will read them all! Every. Single. One.

-Following those photos of Gina Torres kissing another man, she and Laurence Fishburne have announced their split after 14 years of marriage. Gina is a BAMF and I just want her to be happy.

-Speaking of splits, there are rumours that Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen may have broken up after 9 years of marriage.

-The Good Place returns tonight, and it’s one of the few shows I’m actually looking forward to this TV season. Kristen Bell‘s video of her castmates finding out about last year’s shocking twist is perfect.

-It’s DVD season, which means it’s gag reel season! Here are the ones from Arrow,  Timeless,  Criminal MindsSupernatural and The Flash.

Daniel Dae Kim and Ed Skrein are fighting Hollywood whitewashing one Instagram pic at a time.

-This is an interesting look at why award season bait like Hostiles and Disobedience are still without deals after TIFF.  The festival’s late/delayed screening times and issues with attendance reports didn’t help.

-Add Sean Penn to the list of film stars turning to the small screen. (As @ira says, keep it.)

-The Honest Trailer for Wonder Woman is kind of perfect, guy.

-After bringing you Sexy Archie, the CW is developing a dark horror take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Yeah, I’m in.

-A lucky fan got to get her makeup done by Rihanna at Fenty’s London launch.

-I’m kind of done with Netflix’s Marvel shows (with the exception of Jessica Jones and The Runaways), but the first trailer for The Punisher is mighty intriguing.

-Here’s the first trailer for Alicia Vikander as Tomb Raider. I envy her triceps.
