Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge Covers Vogue

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Vogue
Ethan James Green, Vogue,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a delight in the new issue of Vogue. In the interview, she talks about cutting abortion law comments from her SNL monologue (“Because if you rant and rave, if you try and make a noise, you’ll be labelled noisy. You have to be careful of that. You have to find ways to protest”), her drink of choice (“The gimlet came into my life about a year and a half ago. I have really always wanted a cocktail that you order with total confidence; you know, that thing that you order and everyone’s like, Holy shit, she knows what she’s doing with her entire life”), and why you stop sharing as much with your friends as you get older (“I think the first half of your life, you’re trying to find out who you are, and you’re kind of knocking yourself against things, and testing things the whole time, to help kind of sculpt yourself. Then later, when you’ve got as close to sculpted as possible, you’re like, Don’t touch anything, in case it changes me”).

-Speaking of good magazine covers, Katie Holmes covers two this month (the December 2019 issues of Elle UK and SHAPE) and she refused to acknowledge the Tom Cruise years — even in style retrospectives.

-This is sad but not surprising: a new Britney Spears documentary features an interview with the salon owner who witnessed her infamous head shaving incident. The owner claims that Spears’s bodyguards were bribed by the paparazzi for her location and to continue to open the blinds of the salon, allowing a photographer hiding in the bushes to snap photos of their charge.

-This interview with TI about how he obsessively monitors the state of his 18-year-old daughter’s hymen is horrific — and really, really medically stupid. (Dr. Jennifer Gunter has a great thread about all the ways TI is wrong.) This doctor should be have his license revoked.

Jenny Slate‘s proposal story is very cute.

Whitney Houston‘s best friend Robyn Crawford wrote a new memoir, in which she talks about how they knew they had to suppress their relationship. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult…She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt.”

Jennifer Aniston revealed why she joined social media, saying “People are already in my panty drawers all the time. And I want them out of my panty drawers. But now I can decide which pair to show them.” And here I thought it was because she was contractually obligated to promote her new Apple show.

Drake is reportedly getting close to Kylie Jenner, according to People. (E!News‘ sources say it’s not serious which, yeah, we could have figured that one out on our own.)

Hilarie Burton shared a photo of her wedding day with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, which featured his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who officiated the ceremony.

-ABC is rebooting Revenge (a show I don’t think gets enough love) with a Latinx lead.

-Have some Stranger Things bloopers.

Chris Evans appears in the new episode of Billy on the Street! This is not a drill!

Reese Witherspoon Talks Friendship with Jennifer Aniston


-In the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Reese Witherspoon recalls meeting Jennifer Aniston on the set of Friends (where they played sisters). “I was 23 years old and had just had a baby. I was nursing Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, ‘You have a baby?’ I was like, ‘I know, it’s weird.’ And I remember her being like, ‘Where are you going?’ And I was like, ‘I’m pumping!’…She was so sweet to me. I was really nervous, and she was like, ‘Oh, my gosh—don’t worry about it!’ I marveled at her ability to perform in front of a live audience like that with no nerves. They would change all the lines, and she was just so effortlessly affable, bubbly, and sunny. We’ve been friends ever since.”

-There were lots of cast reunions captured on Instagram this weekend, including the Pushing Daisies leads and the Friends crew.

-Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson have been friends for years, but from the looks of it… now they’re friends who smooch.

Rihanna followed Canada’s NDP leader Jagmeet Singh on Instagram, which is confusing but kind of cool?

-I gave up on Supergirl a while ago, but are Kara and Lena together?! Like, in canon?? Or have they gone full queer baiting? Cause this seems like a breakup scene straight out fanfic (and I’m into it).

-The Breaking Bad movie hits Netflix on Friday. Here’s a good recap of Jesse-centric episodes to watch in preparation, while The Ringer did a definitive ranking of all episodes.

-Stranger Things’ Joe Keery doesn’t get why everyone freaked out when it looked like he cut his hair. (Sir, your hair is the source of all your power. How do you not know this by now?!)

-These new photos Shia Labeouf have got me like 👀

Ronan Farrow details how spies tracked his Weinstein investigation in this chilling excerpt from his new book.

-Joker is breaking October box office records. Sigh.

-TV Guide posted an article on how Angel did Cordelia dirty, and the actress who played that character retweeted it. She’s not wrong.

Lupita Nyong’o gave the BEST answer when asked about her ideal reading experience. (“…over hearty dinners that I did not cook” is the perfect kicker.)

-Here’s the red band trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap.

Charlie Rose Suspended Following Sexual Harassment Report

-For the past couple of weeks, there’s been rumblings that multiple newspapers were working on a sexual harassment story about a famous guy with a “nice” reputation that would shock everyone. Is that person Charlie Rose? The Washington Post just revealed that eight women are accusing him of harassing them with nudity, groping and lewd calls — and another publication is reportedly working on a similar story. CBS immediately suspended him following the report, and PBS halted production and distribution of his talk show.

-This story got a bit buried on the weekend but here’s Hilarie Burton and other stars of One Tree Hill detailing showrunner Mark Schwahn‘s harassment of them on set. It’s terrifying.

-E! is investigating Ryan Seacrest over a sexual misconduct claim made by a former wardrobe stylist, which he denies.

-The LA Times has an incredibly detailed report, in which Brett Ratner and Russell Simmons are accused of working together to carry out sexual misconduct. Meanwhile, Terry Crews is offering receipts.

Jeffrey Tambor is officially exiting Transparent after those sexual harassment allegations. This is a good take: Transparent made the world too woke for Transparent.

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner really stepped in it by defending a Girls writer amid his sexual assault claim. Dunham has since apologized for her original statement.  Meanwhile, a writer for Lenny Letter is leaving, citing a what she calls Dunham’s “well-known racism.”

-The news has been rough lately. Let’s all take a break and check out photos from Serena Williams’ over-the-top wedding!

-Not one, but two excellent profiles of Armie Hammer landed today.  There’s Vulture’s, where he explains that he doesn’t get the genius of Call Me By Your Name’s dance scene. And then there’s The Hollywood Reporter’s profile, where he dares bring up Casey Affleck.  (I also really appreciate that THR’s photo shoot features a lot of barefoot shots. I spent the entirety of CMBYN staring at that man’s feet…)

-No one recognized Rita Ora on The Voice in Germany. LOL.

-This Tonight Show skit about auditions starring Jessica Chastain is priceless. “Also, be Wonder Woman!”

-This is a good explainer about why Justice League’s $96M debut is considered a disaster.

Pink is shooting down those theories that she was cringing during Christina Aguilera‘s Whitney Houston tribute at last night’s AMAs.

-Meanwhile, that was a truly underwhelming red carpet.
