Chris Evans Decks His Dog in Knives Out Sweater

Chris Evans’ Christmas tweet won the internet this week.

-Actress Janina Gavankar says she took Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s adorable holiday photo — and slammed the Daily Mail for photoshopping it.

Drake went on a podcast and didn’t hold back. He talked about why he waited so long to confirm the existence of his son (“To be honest with you, I did a DNA test for my son and it came back to us and it said the DNA test got ruined in transit and they couldn’t be 100 percent sure that that was my son or not. I was in a really weird pending situation where I didn’t want to go tell the world that that was my son and it wasn’t”), and says he had a “moment of hesitation” about collaborating with Chris Brown because he didn’t want Rihanna to “feel disrespected.”

-He also dropped a new single on Christmas Eve.

-The film was so rushed that director Tom Hopper was still editing it on the afternoon of the premiere — and it shows. The studio is rushing a new cut to theatres, presumably one in which Judi Dench’s human hands/wedding ring aren’t visible.

-Not surprisingly, the studio has pulled the film from awards contention.

-Also, remember the Sony leak when Hopper kept emailing Amy Pascal and she kept making excuses about why he couldn’t direct her movies because she thinks he’s “a staggering asshole.”

-Director Edgar Wright made a Spotify playlist of his 50 favourite songs of the year and it’s pretty great.

-I will never get tired of watching Oscar Isaac using interviews to push for a Finn & Poe romance.

Parks and Rec will also move from Netflix to this new streaming service.

Jake Gyllenhaal shared some delightful Spider-Man bloopers on his IG.

Scaachi‘s excellent Buzzfeed profile of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca is what everyone is talking about today. It’s a roller coaster ride of an article that started being about Duca’s new book and her Twitter fame, and ended up being about how her entire NYU summer class filing a formal complaint against her. This line took my breath away: “Congratulations, you thrillingly, thrillingly adept journalist, you have discovered that Lauren Duca is not perfect. Put it in the headline, baby.”
