Jason Momoa covers Men’s Health splattered in mud courtesy of the dune buggy-themed photo shoot. In the interview, he talks about filming Dune, being a good dad and a good husband, working through fear creatively, and gathering the nerve to ask out Lisa Bonet.

-Speaking of Health covers, Normani landed the Women’s Health one.

-Well, this is huge: Wonder Woman 1984 just became the biggest movie to drop on streaming, coming to HBO Max (and theatres where open) on Christmas Day. With all the vaccine news, I’m surprised Warner Bros didn’t just hold it until next summer/fall, but it looks like they’re willing to sacrifice the movie to beef up HBO Max subscribers. Bad news for theatres — and bad news for Canadians. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it on streaming by xmas, even though most (but not all) of HBO Max’s programming typically comes here via Crave. But Crave says it won’t stream the film until after its “standard theatrical windows,” which is traditionally 90 days.

-In other HBO Max news, they just greenlit a 4-episode adaptation of the comic series DMZ from Roberto Patino and Ava DuVernay, starring Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt.

-The Fresh Prince reunion just dropped on HBO Max, and everyone’s talking about the intense conversation between Will Smith and Janet Hubert (who played the first Aunt Viv). In this clip, she tells him “Calling a black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death and its hard enough being a dark-skinned black woman in this business.”

-A Back To The Future writer revealed that Biff Tannen was inspired by Trump. Yeah, that tracks.

-Meanwhile, Michael J. Fox recalled sitting next to Princess Diana at the Back to the Future premiere. “The movie started and I had to go pee. So, I am sitting there in agony. I can’t say anything to her, and I can’t turn my back on her. So the rest of the night was a nightmare, a pee-floating nightmare.”

Hugh Grant considers Paddington 2 to be “kind of a masterpiece,” even if his kids think otherwise.

Demi Lovato’s new look is making me want to chop all of my hair off. Wow!

-The paid Instagram posts from celebrities are out of control recently (I guess it’s the easiest way to make money while stuck at home in a pandemic) but this ad from Sarah Michelle Gellar and Shannen Doherty is very charming — mostly because it’s clear neither of them are great cooks. Did Shannen even bother to cut those potatoes?

-Speaking of paid partnerships, Jennifer Aniston just signed a big one with Vital Proteins. I love this for her. I used to take their collagen peptides for recovery back in the good ol’ days when it was safe to go to the gym.

-I’m thrilled that Kristen Stewart‘s gay holiday romcom is getting strong reviews. I mean, I was watching it regardless, but this is nice.

Others have said it better than I ever could, but this article about the rise of “ambient TV” misses a whole lot of points. Also, Emily In Paris wasn’t even developed for Netflix originally.

-Here’s the first trailer for season 2 of Batwoman, with Javicia Leslie taking over the titular role.

-Here’s the trailer for Music, starring Kate Hudson and co-written and directed by Sia.

Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley’s lost YA movie Chaos Walking finally gets a trailer. The production on this thing was cursed.

Nicole Kidman’s Mane Event

nicole-kidman-marie-claire

Nicole Kidman covers the new issue of Marie Claire Australia and I am fascinated by her hair. This is also what I spend my entire time thinking about when watching The Undoing. The show is just ok but the hair is glorious. Is it a wig? Extensions? No way it’s this thick at 53, but however she’s doing it, it’s amazing.

-Kidman’s Undoing costar Hugh Grant told Stephen Colbert that he had covid in February. Of his symptoms he said “I kept breaking into a terrible sweat. It was like a poncho of sweat. Bit embarrassing, really. And then my eyeballs felt about three sizes too big, and a feeling as though an enormous man was sitting on my chest. A Harvey Weinstein or someone.”

Britney Spears lost her court appeal to remove her father from overseeing her estate. Her lawyer said: “(Britney) has informed me that she is afraid of her father. She will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career.”

-It looks like Brian Austin Green‘s camp is feeding quotes to Us Weekly about how Megan Fox is “unpredictable and inconsistent.” Ugh.

-Food Network host Alton Brown seems to be having a rough go of it lately. His pre-election rants seemed slightly unhinged, and now he’s had to apologize for a tweet he posted last night referencing the Holocaust.

-Meanwhile, Larry David‘s daughter says he comforted her following her brutal breakup with Pete Davidson by yelling “Cazzie, come on! YOUR ANCESTORS SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST!”

-It seems kind of wild to me that details of the Hillsong pastor’s affairs are getting such media play, but that’s where we are in 2020.

Khloe Kardashian said that the family’s annual Christmas Eve party is still scheduled to happen. Eek!

Rupert Grint joined Instagram yesterday and his first pic was a a selfie with his 6-month-old baby girl. Harry Potter costar Tom Felton was quick to welcome him.

Selena Gomez will star in a biopic about gay mountaineer and social entrepreneur Silvia Vásquez-Lavado.

-George Clooney has been selected to receive top honors during the Museum of Modern Art Film’s virtual benefit.

-The Gossip Girl reboot cast was photographed filming on the steps of the Met. Dammit, I think I want to watch this now.

-Woof. The Irish accents in the Wild Mountain Thyme trailer are something else.

 

Emily Ratajkowski Announces Pregnancy Through Vogue

Emily Ratajkowski revealed that she’s pregnant via Vogue’s Digital Issue Cover. There’s also an accompanying short video directed by Lena Dunham, which Dunham calls the “opposite of a People magazine baby announcement.”

-Speaking of Vogue, a new NYT report accused Anna Wintour of cultivating a toxic climate that has “sidelined and tokenized women of color, especially Black women” at the magazine.

Dominic West and Lily James‘ romantic jaunt around Rome didn’t just get them in the gossip spotlight; it might also get them fined because you’re not supposed to ride scooters together in covid.

Drake celebrated his 34th birthday over the weekend, and people are disgusted that he served a mac ‘n cheese that included raisins and capers.

-It’s been a big day for the moon! NASA announced there’s more water on the moon than previously thought, and Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to star as Moon Night in Marvel’s forthcoming Disney+ series. He was previously pretty adamant about not playing Poe on a Disney+ series, but that was before covid killed movies (not to mention this new project keeps him far away from the Star Wards fandom).

-Comedian Eric Andre talked about Ellen Degeneres being “cancelled” for being mean. “James Corden is fucked if that’s the only criteria to get called out. James Corden and Lorne Michaels are screwed! They’re trembling in their fucking boots.”

Bette Midler said that she, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy would all be down for a Hocus Pocus sequel. Please Hollywood, we ask for so little!

Midler, Parker and Najimy also shot a cute voting PSA, complete with spell chanting.

-I love when celebs don’t know the difference between replies and DMs.

Nicole Kidman is pulling double duty for HBO. Not only does she star in the new limited series The Undoing, she also sings its theme song.

Drew Barrymore tearfully opened up on her divorce from Will Kopelman during an interview with the Today Show, saying “I couldn’t make sense of it. I really did not take divorce well. I took it really hard…I know from not growing up with any family whatsoever that that was the last thing that I wanted to do for my daughters. It was, like, ugh the ultimate promise I wanted to make with you and for you was to have this amazing family and I found that and there’s something not working, that isn’t livable. How tragic is that?”

Octavia Spencer says her favourite birthday message this year came from Keanu Reeves, who once helped her when her car broke down on the way to an audition.

-The former DJ on Wendy Williams‘ show jumped in to comment when people were posting that she seemed distracted on Friday’s episode, saying “Y’all have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims.”

-Today, Williams seemed to address Friday’s weirdness, saying “I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it’s still work. An effort put in for the hour I’m out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I’m not a perfectionist. I’m not perfect.”

Hugh Grant says he’d do a Notting Hill sequel because “I would like to do a sequel to one of my own romantic comedies that shows what happened after those films ended. Really, to prove the terrible lie that they all were, that it was a happy ending.” Look man, life has been rough this year. Just let us keep this one little thing.

-I don’t watch The Bachelorette, but Clare Crawley has been liking tweets about the show’s producers forcing her to leave.

-Netflix released the full trailer for Selena: The Series, coming in December.
