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.

-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.)

Taylor Swift Testifies Like a Boss

-On the fourth day of the trial in which a former radio DJ is suing Taylor Swift, claiming her allegations that he groped her butt during a meet-and-greet cost him his job, the singer took the stand to testify — and she was awesome. This asshole should have  just been grateful that all he lost was his job, but instead he decided to try to make some money off of it as if she wasn’t going to own him in court.

-I really, really hate the outfit Marie Claire stuck Emma Stone in on their cover (what’s with that hat?!), but the inside photos are lovely.

-Oh my god, Ringer did an oral history of the time a dog ate a heart on One Tree Hill and this might be the best thing I’ve ever read! My favourite part: [Chad Michael Murray declined to comment for this article.]

Channing Tatum busted some Magic Mike-style moves in a gas station convenience store. Bless him.

Justin Theroux may not be very fun to live next to. His neighbor filed a complaint about endless barking from the actor’s rescue dogs left isolated for long periods, dropping heavy weights on the floor at 3 AM, and angry outbursts.

The Crown season 2 trailer is here, if you’re craving some very slow-paced royal drama.

Kylie Jenner‘s makeup brand made $420 million in just 18 months, and it’s only getting bigger.

Halle Berry says Storm and Wolverine were lovers in the X-Men films. This feels more like head canon/wishful thinking than fact.

Paris Hilton is gonna have a reality show again? Who wants that? (Speaking of Paris Hilton, I recently listened to a great podcast in which a publicist and a tabloid editor talk about her gossip heyday. The most fascinating thing is that they used to meet for lunch once a week to plan out coverage of starlets…)

-Yass Kween! You can now buy Broad City-branded sex toys.

-With news that Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning are joining Woody Allen’s new project comes this interesting piece on why young stars still want to work with him. They shouldn’t.

Drew Barrymore‘s interview about wine wasn’t THAT bad. This feels very nit-picky to me. (Or maybe I just have really, really low expectations of celebrities who have their own wine labels.)

-Hollywood is calling this box office season The Summer Of Hell. Really? Cause it seems to me like a lot of small-budget indies are doing just fine.

Better Things’ Season 2 trailer has arrived. This show kind of fell under the radar but I adored the first season.

-I fully agree with this article. When it comes to TV shows, plot is bullshit.

Jimmy Kimmel asked Americans to find North Korea…and they pointed at Canada.

James Corden and Jeffrey Tambor recreated the Brandy/Monica video “That Boy Is Mine” with “The Boyega Is Mine” with John Boyega and it literally made my entire day.
