The Internet Reacts to Jessica Biel’s Anti-Vaxxer Comments

[programming note — I’m taking a few days off. Be back June 19th!]

Jessica Biel was spotted out having a good time with Justin Timberlake last night when her anti-vaxx views hit the fan. She then made an  an Instagram post, and claimed that she is “not against vaccinations” and that her “concern” with the bill “is solely regarding medical exemptions”. Except, as many people have pointed out, the bill she’s fighting doesn’t stop doctors exempting children who have genuine medical reasons. It’s designed for people to stop trying to bribe their doctors for a BS exemption. This is not her first time talking about this, and it still makes no sense.

-Twitter reacted harshly to Biel’s statement. Also, she’s probably the anti-vaxx actress Mindy Kaling referenced in her book, right??

Cuba Gooding Jr has turned himself in and is now in custody after the actor was accused of forcefully touching a woman’s chest while they were at a club.

Justin Bieber decided that maybe picking a fight with Tom Cruise wasn’t his best idea ever.

-Despite having a massive following on Instagram, Selena Gomez is so over the platform’s negativity she deleted the app from her phone.

Idris Elba has a new hobby — stunt car driver.

Nicholas Sparks didn’t want a club for gay students at his prep school. Let’s just stop reading romance from white dudes.

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s Amazon show Too Old To Die Young starring Miles Teller is confusing critics — mostly because they were only given the 4th and 5th episode to screen.

Bryan Singer has agreed to pay $150K to settle a rape allegation made against him stemming from an incident on a yacht in 2003.

-I adore this feature on 25 episodes that changed television.

Idris Elba’s Wedding Photos

Idris and Sabrina Elba wedding

-As mentioned yesterday, Zoe Kravitz covers the new issue of British Vogue. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, newlyweds Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre cover British Vogue’s special wedding edition. We get a peek inside their ceremony in Marrakesh, and Elba talks about how he fell in “love at first sight” with Dhowre. “We’ve been literally inseparable since we met. You know, I’m 47 this year, been married and lived a full life before I even met Sabrina…It wasn’t something that I wanted to do, get married again. But…”

-Variety is publishing its latest round of Actors on Actors interview and everyone is buzzing about Ellen Pompeo‘s chat with Taraji P. Henson, in which Pompeo talks about the “toxic” culture on the Grey’s Anatomy set. “The first 10 years we had serious culture issues, very bad behavior, really toxic work environment…But after Season 10, we had some big shifts in front of the camera, behind the camera. It became my goal to have an experience there that I could be happy and proud about, because we had so much turmoil for 10 years.” Sandra Oh left in season 10, but it seems unlikely that she’s referring to her. Patrick Dempsey left in season 11, so maybe? (Marti Noxon weighed in with her experience with him on the set.)

-In the same chat, Henson talks about making the hard choice to leave a show that was “stealing my joy,” which seems to refer to Person of Interest.

-In another Actors on Actors interview, Julia Roberts tells Patricia Arquette about the the “gritty” first script for Pretty Woman.

-Wow. Warner Bros and DC have decided not to do big presentations at ComicCon this year. I guess we’re not going to get the chance to see Joaquin Phoenix awkwardly shill for Joker in Hall H.

Jenna Dewan just went Instagram official with her new boyfriend, Shameless actor Steve Kazee.

-The trailer for Brad Pitt’s delayed Ad Astra has landed. It’s kind of awkward — and makes me wonder about all those blind items floating around about how there were worries he’d been miscast.

 

Stars Shine the Spotlight On Their Stylists

Julia Roberts Stylist THR

-I always adore the stylist issue of The Hollywood Reporter. Julia Roberts, Emily Blunt, Regina King, Idris Elba and more joined their stylists to discuss their work.

-The Global Talent issue of Vogue features Scarlett Johansson, Doona Bae, Deepika Padukone, Lea Seydoux, Elizabeth Debicki and more on the covers.

Chance the Rapper is having a big week. Days after getting married, he announced he and his new wife are expecting another baby.

-It was Shazam day in Toronto (where the film was shot). The cast met fans at Yonge-Dundas Square before tonight’s screening.

-Meanwhile, the new trailer includes some Aquaman shade.

-Speaking of superhero trailers, the new Avengers: Endgame trailer dropped this morning and when Captain Marvel appeared I made a noise I’ve never made before. It’s that good.

-Also, Marvel fixed the new Endgame poster after fans complained that Danai Gurira‘s name was left off.

Ben Affleck appeared on Ellen and finally admitted that his full back tattoo is not a myth.

Colin Farrell was also on the show, where he and Ellen dressed up audience members as clowns. I love that he commented what “good huggers” they are. *swoon*

Mark Ruffalo talked about those Noah Centineo comparisons on Fallon: “He’s way better looking than I was. Are you kidding me? I wish I looked like that.”

-Netflix cancelled One Day at a Time, which is bad enough considering how much money they’re throwing at everything else. But the fact that they tried to blame viewership numbers (which they didn’t release) and then sent a tweet that seemed to plead for sympathy pissed a lot of people off. It’s been a while since I’ve seen so many TV critics this riled up.

-Hallmark has fired Lori Loughlin from all future projects following her involvement in the college scam scandal. She starred on series When Calls the Heart and in the Garage Sale Mystery series of TV movies.

-After reading this article, I really want to go to karaoke with Christine Baranski: “If I want to have the ultimate high, it would be Diana Ross singing ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.’ That key change.”

-Well, this is depressing. Gwyneth Paltrow has a larger influence on what Canadians eat than our own food guide.

-In a new interview, Charlie Hunnam and Garrett Hedlund talk about my favourite paparazzi photos of all time. “We were photographed wrestling in our Speedos on the beach in Hawaii, which is unfortunate. It just, like, became a thing.”

-SNL’s Aidy Bryant ships costar Pete Davidson with Kate Beckinsale.

-Wayne’s World director Penelope Spheeris talked about why she quit the industry in a new interview: “Hollywood is a lonely, lonely desert, especially as a woman…I don’t need them. I really don’t. Especially now, what am I going to do? Work for a year on a movie and make $50,000? They can blow me! That’s a quote. You can print that.”

Taylor Schilling has to deal with her juggalo-loving neice and her nosy neighbor Kate McKinnon in the Family trailer.
