–Dakota Johnson is promoting both Suspiria and Bad Times at El Royale — which landed her this gorg cover on Vogue Australia. She talks about El Royale costar Chris Hemworth and how he spent most of the shoot shirtless: “Oh my god. It’s such a distraction…No-one on set could pay attention to anything else: it was so shocking, not in a sexual way at all, just, like, scientifically, how is it possible to look like that? Crazy! Then he would eat a bowl of Smarties and you’re like: ‘You’re an asshole, f*ck you!’ I don’t eat anything sweet: I eat green things for three months in order to fit into a pair of jeans. And he eats whatever the f*ck he wants and looks like he was literally chiselled out of marble – it’s insane.”
–Rihanna has written an op-ed in the Guardian about the global education crisis: “When it comes to helping the world’s poorest children, as well as the communities and societies in which they live, I’m still learning – and I need others to join me on the journey and use their voices alongside mine.”
–Elizabeth Olsen‘s new show Sorry For Your Loss debuts tonight on Facebook Watch to good reviews. The only issue? No one really knows how to watch TV episodes on Facebook yet. (I work in social media all day and I had to look it up, too). Here’s how to watch it on your app, or you could go straight to the show’s episode page.
–Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt have officially signed on to a Mad About You revival because everything old is new again.
-Holy moly, this sounds like my jam: Paul Feig is directing an Emma Thompson-penned holiday rom-com that’s based on the Wham! song “Last Christmas” and stars Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Crazy Rich Asians’ Henry Golding. All of those words are wonderful!
-I love that Issa Rae threw a pre-Emmy yacht party for black nominees and her Insecure cast/crew — and at one point she took all the guys’ shirts.
-Speaking of the Emmys, we recapped the best and worst dresses here.
-Marvelous Mrs. Maisel swept the comedy Emmys, which led to all of my coworkers asking me today if it’s any good. I watched the first half of the season and found it very charming — but was not compelled to finish it. It’s cute, but if you have other comedies to catch up on, I would absolutely recommend prioritizing Atlanta or Barry ahead of it.
–This photo of Handmaids stars Yvonne Strahoski, Ann Dowd and Alexis Bledel when they all lost in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama was adorable.
–Sandra Oh introducing her parents to Milo Ventimiglia on the red carpet was wonderful. (This is exactly the only person my mom would want to meet too.)
-It’s never been more obvious that Jesse Plemons is punching above his weight than the photos of him with Kirsten Dunst last night. Get it, Landry!
-This is a good piece on how Woody Allen and Soon-Yi tried to use that New York magazine piece to shut down allegations against him — and failed completely.
-Here’s our first peek at the 90s-set Captain Marvel — complete with Blockbuster and Brie Larson punching an old lady in the face. The fade from “her” to “hero”? Yeah, that’s good stuff.
