Gina Rodriguez Talks Anxiety, Engagement

Gina Rodriguez cosmo

-In her new Cosmo cover story, Gina Rodriguez talks about her anxiety (“It started coming, like, two years into Jane. I had my first panic attack at a sushi restaurant. All of a sudden, I thought I was going to die, and people are taking pictures. It was horrendous”), and shares how dating fiance Joe LoCicero was a “new experience’ for her

Brie Larson has called off her engagement to Alex Greenwald after several years of dating.

-Does The Weeknd reference Drake’s secret baby in his new track?

-Jesus. Janeane Garofalo talked about Louis C.K. on a podcast and it was a mess. Around the 35-min mark she says: “Leave Louis C.K. alone. Enough with that. He’s been my friend since 1985 and I think he has suffered. When he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate…if nothing else, care about his daughters. If you can find no compassion for him (which I think you should), think about his how daughters who hear all of this stuff feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?” Then she goes on a rant about how everyone is misunderstanding what he did — even though he ADMITTED IT.

-You technically came out last year on Lifetime, but when Netflix picked it up for season two, it dropped the first season last season and now it’s suddenly found it’s audience, making it the latest beneficiary of the very real Netflix bump.

-Also, I liked this piece on You’s season finale (spoilers, obvs) and how the show is a ripe target for bad fandom and viewers who misread the show for their own ends, blithely ignoring that every character is supposed to be a loathsome monster.

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s return did great last night. It got its biggest ratings in two years, and improved on NBC’s timeslot by 50%.

-HBO is hop‌ing y’all will tune into True Detective on Sunday so that you can learn the Game of Thrones premiere date.

Noah Centineo is playing Riverdale star Camila Mendes‘ fake boyfriend in the upcoming Netflix movie The Perfect Date. Fake dating is my favourite trope!

-Meanwhile, Lana Condor admitted she and Noah Centineo have a ‘spark’ so they made a contract about their boundaries just like their onscreen counterparts in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

Condor also appeared in Jimmy Fallon‘s high school musical skit alongside Bryan Cranston.

Amy Adams told James Corden about how she once annoyed Whitney Houston while working at The Gap: “She went back into the dressing room and requested anybody else.”

Timothée Chalamet was delightful on Ellen, where he talked about playing pranks on his mother and admitted he once locked his naked mom outside on a cruise ship balcony.

-The reviews for Sex Education, Netflix’s new teen comedy starring Gillian Anderson, make it sound like a total delight. There goes my weekend!

Cara Delevingne says she has lost 50,000 followers on Instagram since slamming R. Kelly. She doesn’t seem to mind though, adding “Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly”.

-Exactly how many projects does Jordan Peele have on the go? Here’s the trailer for his upcoming sci-fi comedy.

-A few days ago I posted the trailer for Little, starring Regina Hall and Issa Rae, and it looks so funny! But now I want to see it even more because I just found out that Marsai Martin, the little girl from Blackish, is an executive producer on the film (and is one of the leads), because it’s her concept! She also fired an agent who told her to “chill and take a break” when she was 10. I think I love her.

Jamie Dornan and Jemima Kirke‘s one-night stand gets complicated when she tries to DTR in the Untogether trailer.

Wet Hot American Summer Is Back, But Are You Ready?


-I’m going to spend a lot of time this weekend reading Twitter reaction to Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer from people who haven’t seen the original film, ’cause it’s gonna be a gong show. I was describing the movie to a friend of mine recently and said, “So all these famous people play camp counselors and Paul Rudd kills a bunch of kids and Christopher Meloni befriends a can of vegetables and humps a fridge and Bradley Cooper has an extended gay sex scene and Amy Poehler does heroin and it’s SO FUNNY!” He thought I was making it all up. Here’s a tip: watch these five clips first to prepare yourself.

Janeane Garofalo doesn’t know when she’ll watch the reboot because it’s on Netflix and she doesn’t “use a computer.” Blech.

-Speaking of anti-comedies, here’s the first trailer for season two of You’re The Worst, my favourite new show from last year.

-Another comedy trailer that looks great is Difficult People. How am I not watching this?!

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are hanging out and all is right with the world.

-Things got reallllllll interesting last night when People magazine jumped on the ‘Ben Affleck is sleeping with the nanny’ bandwagon. Think about that for a sec. People was the one who kept running the “nothing to see here!” stories before the split, which earned them the official divorce statement and the first post-split pics from the Bahamas. They even carried Affleck‘s nanny denial yesterday. But now they’ve stopped being his camp’s mouthpiece and have jumped on this story HARD, running “5 things to know about Christine Ouzounian” and her latest pap shots. She doesn’t exactly look devastated at being photographed, huh? This girl is going to be trouble for him.

-In a bid to get Foo Fighters to play their town, a 1,000 locals got together to cover “Learn to Fly” — and it was awesome.

-The actor who plays Stan on True Detective reveals why his character is such a big deal. I’ve watched every episode this season (begrudgingly) and I swear I’ve never seen this dude’s face before. Solid storytelling, guys!

Beyoncé might join NBC’s The Wiz? But I don’t know if I’m emotionally prepared to switch from hate-watching live TV musicals to regular-watching them!

Jennifer Beals left her dog in a hot car in Vancouver and a concerned citizen was having none of it.

-Here’s the first trailer for Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba as a ruthless mercenary fighter. There’s talk that this could land Netflix its first Oscar nom.

John Green wrote an essay defending Cara Delevingne following that morning show interview. I wrote a defense, too. Here it is: eyebrows!

Amy Sedaris lent Jimmy Fallon a helping hand last night while his finger heals.

-Want to know about Chris Hemsworth’s prosthetic dick but don’t actually want to sit through Vacation? Vulture’s got your back.

Brie Larson has been on the verge of breaking out for a while now (have you seen Short Term 12? Please watch Short Term 12!), but this trailer for Room might be her big moment. It looks great but I don’t know if I’m going to watch it; that book haunted me.
