Elisabeth Moss Says Jennifer Aniston Will Hold Hands With You

Elisabeth Moss says the photo of her holding hands with Jennifer Aniston on the SAG Awards red carpet didn’t make her feel special. “Well, everyone thinks that moment with Brad where they were holding hands was a big deal, but honestly, she seems to just be doing this with everybody. I mean, she’s just very handsy…I’ve literally never officially met her.”

-The Love Is Blind finale dropped today and my entire Twitter TL is freaking out. But the producers say they had two more engagements that they didn’t follow. I don’t get why some couples you see in the first few episodes just disappear. This was filmed in 2018. Surely Netflix had enough time to edit it all together in a way that could coherently include them, or drop them altogether?

-If you read one celeb-adjacent story today, read Caity Weaver‘s deep dive into what is going on with the Royal Family Instagram accounts. It’s so, so good.

-Meanwhile, The RCMP plans to stop providing security to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Hilary Duff declined to comment, but multiple sources tell Variety that the star is not happy with Disney for firing showrunner Terri Minsky from the Lizzie Maguire revival two episodes in. The two women wanted to do an adult version of Lizzie but Disney wants a show that will appeal to families. The revival now remains on hold.

Taylor Swift is unrecognizable in her video for “The Man,” in which she transforms convincingly into a dude.

-Speaking of new music videos, Alanis Morissette attends AA in the video for “Reasons I Drink,” which includes a version of her dressed as Ironic-era Alanis.

-This is a good take: Celebs should Instagram themselves washing their hands instead of wearing masks.

Britney Spears posted a dance video and it was all going well and good — until she broke her foot. You can actually hear the moment it happens.

-In a new op-ed for The New York Times, staff writer Lindsay Crouse opened up about the moment she discovered that the man she used to date for seven years has moved on with Lady Gaga. “Lady Gaga is amazing. Comparing yourself with her is incredibly motivational, and I recommend you try it, regardless of how you relate to who’s dating her.”

Variety’s new cover story tackles what has/will change with Harvey Weinstein‘s verdict. “For so long, those in Hollywood who have abused their power have stood to gain everything from perpetuating this fear in women,” says Canadian actress Larissa Gomes, who was 21 years old when he allegedly sexually harassed her in a hotel room.

Jordan Peele‘s Candyman trailer freaked me the eff out.

SZA Makes It To The Other Side

sza-rolling-stone

-I know she seems to hate it for some reason, but SZA’s Rolling Stone cover story is really good! She tries to temper expectations about her next release (“Music is coming out this year for sure. An album? Strong words”), talks about coming to terms with fame (“I’ve been in the airport on the way to see my grandmother on life support and [fans] are like, ‘‘Aw, girl, what are you doing here? Can I get this picture now?'”) and addresses the devastating loss of her grandmother (“I didn’t want to make music. I didn’t. I was just trying to not kill myself, and not quit, period. Because it was really fucking hard, and lonely as fuck”).

-She also released the video for “The Other Side,” her collab with Justin Timberlake for the Trolls World Tour soundtrack.

-The Johnny Depp apologists who were all over Twitter a couple of weeks ago seem strangely silent today. According to text messages read out in court this week, Depp once texted actor pal Paul Bettany: “Let’s burn Amber [Heard]…Let’s drown her before we burn her!!! I will f–k her burnt corpse afterwards to make sure she is dead.” Depp is in London for a preliminary hearing in his libel suit against British newspaper The Sun over an article that alleged Depp had been abusive to Heard. The texts were revealed in court after previous lawyers for Depp had accidentally shared 70,000 messages from and to the actor with The Sun’s legal team — by mistake!

Prince Harry spoke at a conference for his sustainable travel initiative Travalyst in Edinburgh today and asked to just be called Harry.

BTSappearance on Carpool Karaoke was super cute. Dammit, I’m going to have to learn all their names and pick one to stan, aren’t I?

-Not surprisingly, Jennifer Garner‘s boyfriend John Miller is reportedly “uncomfortable” with Ben Affleck‘s candid interviews in which he keeps talking about how his biggest regret was their divorce.

Adrien Brody is reportedly dating Marchesa fashion designer Georgina Chapman, who is Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife.

George Clooney said he was “surprised and saddened” to learn of the investigation involving Nespresso farms and child labour. “Clearly this board and this company still have work to do.”

Ryan Murphy‘s American Horror Story is not my jam, but that series has the best casting on TV today. Season’s 10 cast was just announced, with Macaulay Culkin joining Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates and Evan Peters.

-The latest Quibi trailer gives us blink-and-you’ll-miss-it looks at their new shows starring Anna Kendrick, Liam Hemsworth, Idris Elba, Sophie Turner, Will Forte, Bill Murray, Rachel Brosnahan, Laurence Fishburne, Chrissy Teigen, Don Cheadle and Lena Waithe.  The AV Club has a list of all the major offerings (so far).

Steven Spielberg won’t direct Indiana Jones 5, with James Mangold in talks to replace him.

-The This Is Us cast is out here doing TikTok challenges.

Hilary Duff shaded Disney+, implying the Lizzie McGuire revival is on hold because it was considered too mature for the streaming service.

Taylor Swift is releasing a new video tomorrow for “The Man” – which she directed. It’s my least favourite song on the album because it’s so very on the nose but I’m interested in what she does behind the camera.

-I have no interest in watching Amazon’s Hunters starring Al Pacino so I read this spoilery review. The big twist sounds hella dumb.

-The people behind Invisible Man created a bunch of scary stunts for the junket. I hate this. These things are stressful enough; journalists are just trying to do their jobs.

-This whole thread about nice celebrity encounters made me happy.

Octavia Spencer plays a millionaire in a new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker.

Taylor Swift Reps Her Favourite Things in EW

Taylor Swift EW

-I’m impressed that Taylor Swift actually allowed a journalist to interview her for her new EW cover (a rare occurrence in Hollywood these days). She wears buttons that represent everything she’s loving pop culture-wise these days, including Killing Eve, Fleabag, King Princess and Sally Rooney. (Someone’s gonna have to explain the appeal of Rooney’s Normal People to me. Folks are losing it over that book, which I thought was ok.)

-I’m with Swift when it comes to Fleabag. I recently binged the second season in a weekend, and it was definitely the best thing I’ve watched so far this year. The glowing reviews the final season (which arrives on Amazon Prime May 17) is getting are on point.

Swift’s single “Me!” came in second place on the Billboard charts, which is kind of shocking.

-Pose star Indya Moore opens up about their harrowing childhood in the new issue of Elle. They entered the foster system at 14 and was sex trafficked at age 16 to obtain hormone replacement therapy: “I didn’t understand what sex trafficking was at the time. The language I knew was that they were, basically, my pimps. I was just a kid.”

-All the sighs. CBS just renewed Bull despite those sexual allegations against Michael Weatherly that resulted in a payoff to Eliza Dushku. In (presumably) related news, Steven Spielberg has quit as exec producer.

Keanu Reeves doesn’t seem happy that his taxi ride with fellow stranded airport passengers went viral. As he (awkwardly) said, “Someone being spying.”

-Kimmy Schmidt is coming back to Netflix for an interactive movie. As much as I liked that show I … don’t want this?

Tom Holland and the cast of Spider-Man: Far From Home surprised guests at Disneyland, and it was all very cute.

-Congrats to Hilary Duff, who just got engaged.

-People think that little Prince George accidentally revealed Archie’s name back in January.

Seth Rogen just won Twitter.

-Sorry ladies, but it looks like Michael B Jordan is dating model Cindy Bruna.

-Whelp. I will not be watching It: Chapter Two because I’m a wimp and this trailer alone did me in.
