Ryan Gosling made rare comments about his family in his new British GQ interview (which was basically a big ad for his new Tag Heuer campaign). “Our kids were at a difficult age not to be able to see other kids and interact with people, even though Eva [Mendes] and I did our best.” He added that to keep the kids entertained during lockdown, the couple did “more acting in quarantine than in our films. Tougher crowd, though.”

-In a new interview, Jamie Dornan reflected on 2021, in which his father passed way. “It’s a strange thing to end the year with all this positivity — with so much praise for Belfast and a lot of good talk about The Tourist. Because on many levels it’s been the worst year of my life, and the hardest.”

Tristan Thompson apologized to Khloé Kardashian via Instagram Stories (not even a feed post!) after a paternity test proved that he did indeed father a child with someone else when they were still dating.

Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian are in the Bahamas together.

-The Omicron hits keep coming in Hollywood. Jimmy Fallon said he and his daughters tested positive before Christmas (right before he was set to appear on SNL) but had mild symptoms, while Seth Meyers cancelled the rest of his shows this week after testing positive. And Whoopi Goldberg is missing The View this week after testing positive.

Betty White‘s agent has responded to rumours. “People are saying her death was related to getting a booster shot three days earlier, but that is not true. She died of natural causes. Her death should not be politicized — that is not the life she lived.”

Jared Leto’s Morbius has been pushed yet again and will now hit theaters in April. (Dylan O’Brien‘s sarcastic, salty response to this news made my eyebrow raise.)

-Now that a settlement between Jeffrey Epstein and a woman who sued Prince Andrew for sexual abuse has come to light, the prince’s lawyers are trying to get the case dismissed. It is not going well for him.

Patton Oswalt took to social media to explain why he posted a photo with pal Dave Chappelle. “I’m an LGBTQ ally. I’m a loyal friend. There’s friction in those traits.”

-I can’t believe that the Harry Potter reunion special (which was very charming) accidentally used a childhood photo of Emma Roberts instead of Emma Watson.

Halle Berry didn’t really get married — but she clearly wanted us to think she did.

-I really enjoyed the spoiler-filled interview with the writers for Spider-Man: No Way Home.

-Character actor David Koechner (probably best known from The Office and Anchorman) was arrested on NYE for suspected DUI and hit-and-run.

-Oof. Dr. Dre has reportedly been ordered to pay his ex $100 million in their divorce settlement.

-I missed all the drama on Twitter last week but basically Adam McKay was saying that if you don’t like Don’t Look Up (and I didn’t) you don’t care about climate change? Did I get that right?

-If you want to watch a Netflix movie that’s actually good, I liked The Lost Daughter and am fully expecting Olivia Colman to nab a nomination for it.

Will Arnett will be replacing Armie Hammer in Taika Waititi’s soccer comedy, Next Goal Wins.

-On Christmas Day, Netflix gave us a gift: the announcement that Bridgerton will return in March.

-The new trailer for The Batman features our best look at Catwoman and The Riddler yet.

Lady Gaga’s Duel Vogue Covers

Lady Gaga is on the December cover of of both British Vogue and Vogue Italia. She looks amazing on both, but it’s the Italia one on the right for me. In the interview, she talks about how committed she was when preparing for her role in House of Gucci. “It is three years since I started working on it and I will be fully honest and transparent: I lived as [her character Reggiani] for a year and a half. And I spoke with an accent for nine months of that. Off camera, I never broke. I stayed with her.”

-J. Crew unveiled its holiday campaign with Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, and the whole thing is a delight! The little videos further down on the page are sooo cute. “Katie, call me in case this doesn’t work out.” “You call it a toque.” “That’s its name!”

Kristen Stewart confirmed that she and her girlfriend of two years, Dylan Meyer, are engaged. She told Howard Stern, “We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it.”

-In his British GQ cover story, Jamie Dornan says he’s sick of people making fun of Fifty Shades of Grey. “Look, put it this way: It’s done no harm to my career to be part of a movie franchise that has made more than $1 billion. Every working actor would say the same thing. It’s provided a lot. There’s no shame in saying it’s transformed my life and my family’s life financially. I am very, very grateful for this and always will be…But I take issue with the whole thing being just a bit of a joke. Everyone involved worked as hard as they could on those films, including myself.”

-Game Of Thrones actress Gemma Whelan, who played Yara, says the show didn’t have an intimacy coordinator so sex scenes were a “frenzied mess.”

-Speaking of GoT alums, Jason Momoa says he’s “camped out at his house” after testing positive for covid. Judging by the rep he gained while shooting in here in Toronto this summer, I’m not surprised.

-I love that the girls from The Bold Type spent Halloween together.

Dave Chappelle introduced Jay-Z‘s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and began his speech by saying, “I would like to apologize to… Nah, I’m just f—in’ with ya.” Classy.

Angelina Jolie Swings High

-Elle released a series of covers for their Women in Hollywood issue, including ones featuring The Eternals’ stars Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek and Lauren Radloff. In the shoot, the best pics are of Jolie — mostly because they shot her swinging in a harness over a swimming pool.

-In a series of scathing Instagram posts, actress Ruby Rose finally opened up about her abrupt departure from the CW’s Batwoman, claiming unsafe work conditions and mistreatment by the network/studio. She also called out costar Dougray Scott, who she says “yelled like a little bitch at women and was a nightmare.” (My Ever After-loving heart is breaking.) Warner Bros TV responded with their own harsh words, saying she was fired based on an internal investigation of “multiple complaints about workplace behavior that were extensively reviewed.”  Between this, Brandon Routh and Dominic Purcell leaving Legends under not-great-sounding circumstances, and Supergirl’s Jon Cryer liking tweets about boycotting the network, the CW needs to get their house in order.

-All the bts drama makes me glad that Arrow ended and the decades-long hold the WB/UPN/CW had on me lifted, though the new teaser for The Flash’s crossover event looks good. It will feature Jefferson from Black Lightning, Mia from Arrow, Ray from Legends, Alex from Supergirl, Ryan from Batwoman, and Roy Choi from the last CW crossover.

-Netflix is vehemently disputing the fired staffer’s denial of leaking Dave Chappelle payout information to the press.

-Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy also voiced his support.

-Also, the list of demand for the walkout is very thoughtful — and does not include taking down Chappelle’s special.

Jonah Hill says he doesn’t care that people think he ruined surfing. First, why do people think that? Second, is he searching IG stickers with his name? Third, would anyone know about this if he hadn’t posted it?

Alicia Silverstone says she’s been banned from a dating app twice (likely Raya).

–The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that it would move forward with handing out Golden Globe awards for the films and TV shows of 2021 — even if it’s not broadcast.

-This is such a good piece on why Mel Gibson keeps getting so many chances. “I’m convinced that far too many people decided that Weinstein’s punishment was proof enough that they’d fixed the problem. Not only that but it became the new benchmark for abuse.”

Freida Pinto is the latest celeb to reveal a secret wedding during lockdown.

Meryl Streep, Kit Harington and Matthew Rhys will head the ensemble of an eight-episode drama on Apple TV+ about climate change.

-The finale for Only Murders in the Building aired this week and I was surprised how continually charmed I was by that show.  Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez made a fascinating team, Amy Ryan is always stellar, and Tina Fey has a quip at the end of the finale that I’m still laughing about.
