Jennifer Aniston: “I’m Not Heartbroken”

Jennifer Aniston InStyle

-In an Instyle interview with her pal Molly McNearneyJimmy Kimmel‘s wife — Jennifer Aniston talks about her recent divorce from Justin Theroux (“The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors”), shooting a film with Dolly Parton (“She’s magic”), and a possible Friends reunion (“I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted.”)

-I’m loving that that cast of Crazy Rich Asians is getting magazine covers. I’m rooting for this movie to make a million kajillion dollars.

Topher Grace does this thing where he edits down movie franchises into one concise cut. (His Star Wars prequel edit is legendary.) Now That 70s Show star has blessed the world with a 2-hour version of The Hobbit trilogy.

Chris Hardwick is not just returning to work following those sexual assault allegations, he’s picking up more gigs. Besides his Talking Dead job, he’ll host The Wall and is set to appear as a guest judge on AGT after.

Seth Rogen has confirmed Judd Apatow‘s story that he was the one who told Tom Cruise that you can watch porn on the internet. “I mean, I can’t remember — it was like 12 years ago or something like that. I think generally my reaction was, ‘You are a very sheltered man.'”

-Set It Up’s Glen Powell will be in Top Gun 2 after all, just in a different role. I wonder if this is in response to the social media outcry after Miles Teller got the original gig over him?

-These photos of Reese Witherspoon throwing ice cream at Meryl Streep on the set of Big Little Lies has me *very* excited for season 2.

-Everyone is pissed that Jennifer Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs instead of Missy Elliot. Except, apparently, Missy Elliot.

-I tried to watch the first season of The Sinner but I thought it was horrible (and not because of Jessica Biel, surprisingly!). But the second season arrives this week with good reviews — and the presence of Carrie Coon, who makes everything better.

-Oh ffs. Hollywood is now rebooting ALF.

-Despite a cast letter asking for James Gunn to be reinstated as the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3, Disney is not planning on rehiring the filmmaker after offensive tweets from his past resurfaced. “I don’t see Disney re-hiring him,” says one person close to the matter tells Variety.

Ian Somerhalder says he could no longer be part of the The Vampire Diaries cast’s group text because he’s a father now and can’t be bothered by people’s silly emojis. Sure.

-It’s a good day for listicles if you’re a TV fan. The Ringer pulled together the best 100 episodes of the century (gotta say, I didn’t predict The OC pilot beating Breaking Bad’s “Ozymandias,” but I dig it!), while  TV Insider chose the 65 best episodes of the 21st century (another good list, but who picks Buffy’s musical over “The Body”?!).

-Wait, so Anna Wintour is NOT leaving Vogue? And she may have pulled a Miranda Priestly? That’s delicious!

Oscar Isaac and Mélanie Laurent star in the Operation Finale trailer.

CTV Moves Up Hip Doc In Tribute To Gord Downie

-In tribute to Gord Downie, who passed away today, CTV has moved up the premiere of the Tragically Hip doc to this Friday night.

Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogen and more reacted to Gord’s death on Twitter.

-Meanwhile, of all the stories and tributes that came out today, this Twitter thread is my absolute favourite.

-I follow a lot of TV critics, and absolute favourite has always been Mo Ryan of Variety (previously of HuffPo). She has just as much respect for “low brow” network fare as “prestige” drama, she is constantly and publicly pushing for more diversity in front of and behind the camera, and she frequently gives voice to fan causes (the most recent being the “kill your gays” trope sparked by The 100). So I was absolutely gutted this morning to read her account of being sexually assaulted by a TV executive three years ago at an industry event.

Kevin Smith says he’s going to donate future revenue from his Weinstein-backed movies to charity.

Channing Tatum is walking the walk by announcing that he’s halting development on the movie he was supposed to make with Weinstein’s company.

Laura Dern opened up about being sexually harassed on Ellen’s show today.

Kate Winslet is in the super awkward position of having to talk about Harvey Weinstein — while also promote her new Woody Allen movie. In a new interview, she says she refused to thank him in her 2009 Oscar speech.  “I remember being told, ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No, I won’t. No, I won’t.'”

Casey Affleck has just been cast in Alfonso Cuarón‘s horror drama TV series, proving nothing ever changes.

Charlyne Yi took to Twitter yesterday to recall the time David Cross introduced himself with a racist comment. He doesn’t remember it that way.

Johnny Depp is now suing his lawyer, accusing him and his firm of swindling almost $35M.

-Early reactions to Thor: Ragnarok are in — and most critics seem to dig it.

Blake Lively is redefining extra with all these press tour looks.

-My entire Twitter TL is obsessed with a Norwegian teen drama called Skam — and Facebook just announced they’re doing a US remake of it.

-Ex-Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge hopes to discover aliens with his crowdfunded spaceship. You do you, bud.

-The ratings news for Riverdale just keep getting better and better. Now that the live-plus-3 ratings have come in, the premiere saw its teen audience go up by 400%. This stuff just doesn’t happen on broadcast TV anymore. The power of Netflix binges!

-The Pussycat Dolls are disputing a claim made by a former member that the group is a front for a “prostitution ring.” Whoa.

-I’m not entirely convinced that Ian Somerhalder is famous enough to be mocked on SNL, but this certainly does seem like him…

-The first trailer for Louis C.K.‘s I Love You, Daddy has arrived  — at the worst possible timing. I wonder what kind of appetite there is for a movie about a Woody Allen-type character, created by a guy who refuses to address his sexual harassment allegations.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Expecting

-Oh geez. 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant with Travis Scott’s baby. Doesn’t the new season of their show premiere this weekend? Damn, Kris came to play…

Ian Somerhalder said on a podcast he wanted a baby so badly that he threw out Nikki Reed‘s birth control pills and the internet is not happy. (I assumed that it was just a story taken out of context and it wouldn’t sound like he actually took away her consent once I heard the audio — but NOPE!).

Nikki has taken to Twitter to defend Ian, and wrote a long response to a Cosmo article about it.

Prince Harry is here! Since Meghan Markle lives in Toronto, she’s expected to accompany him to a bunch of official Invictus events, so expect a slew of new photos of them together next week.

-Meanwhile, Meghan‘s  ex-husband just sold a TV show about a woman who moves on from a relationship by dating a British prince, which sounds petty AF.

-Vogue did their 73 Questions series with Tracee Ellis-Ross and she was predictably a delight. Her house is a beaut.

-Hills star Audrina Patridge filed for divorce and also requested a restraining order from him.

-This interview with Marilyn Manson is totally bonkers. He greets the Guardian reporter by jumping out from behind a door with a fake gun, and responds to questions by “flicking” the reporter’s testicles. What. The. Hell.

-For the third night in a row, Jimmy Kimmel dedicated a portion of his show to his highly publicized battle against the Graham-Cassidy health-care bill — to much praise.

David Foster is dating Katherine McPhee — and I’m not sure if Foster’s daughter is completely on board.

-The furor over Riverdale star KJ Apa’s car accident continues and Cole Sprouse has asked that the  series provide transportation to castmembers working late hours. On one hand I’m not sure about it because they’re adults who shoot in Langley and choose to live downtown, and they reportedly can call a taxi or stay in a hotel near the set on the studio’s dime if they feel it is unsafe to drive. On the other hand, I get that these guys put in crazy long hours and probably don’t want to always crash at hotels. On Smallville, Tom Wellington‘s co-stars once had to sign a petition to get him a driver on the series so that he wouldn’t end up killing himself while going home in a sleep-deprived state.

-Is anyone having more fun in life than Nicole Richie? I’m doubtful.

-The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s next stop-motion film Isle of Dogs is here.
