Chris Evans Laughs Off Dick Pic

Chris Evans recovered from his accidental dick pic reveal nicely by using the attention for good and urging people to vote.  He also addressed it in an interview with Tamron Hall today, saying “That’s called turning a frown upside down, Tamron. It was an interesting weekend. Full of lessons learned. A lot of teachable moments. Things happen and it’s embarrassing. You have to roll with the punches. I will say I have some pretty fantastic fans that came to my support.” I still think there’s a conversation to be had about whether a female celeb could survive an incident like this as unscathed as he did, but still, I’m glad he’s dealing with it with grace.

Cardi B is taking her “WAP” and walking away. She filed for divorce from husband Offset at a courthouse in Atlanta.

Madonna is set to co-write and direct her own biopic. Diablo Cody will co-write the script. (Interesting that her tweet about it downplays Cody’s involvement.)

-The family of Carole Baskin’s missing husband’s aired a commercial during her Dancing With the Stars debut last night: “Do you know who did this or if Carole Baskin was involved? A $100k reward has been funded.”

Kim Kardashian West is going to to freeze her Instagram/Facebook accounts tomorrow to protest hate speech, which is probably going to have more impact than anything the platforms are doing.

Jared Padalecki‘s real-life wife has been cast to play his TV wife in CW’s Walker. I can see this happening more and more during covid. You don’t have to take the same safety precautions when shooting if the actors are living together.

John Boyega is stepping down as a brand ambassador for the British perfume and candle company Jo Malone after the brand reshot a video he created with a different actor for the Chinese market.

-Certified young person Paul Rudd wants you to wear a mask.

Noel Gallagher says he refuses to wear a mask because of freedom or some nonsense.

Emily Ratajkowski wrote a powerful essay for The Cut on controlling photos of herself. She tweeted, “This is an extremely personal piece about image, power and consent.”

Jason Momoa continues to stand by Ray Fisher and his claims about misconduct on the set of Justice League, saying on Instagram: “This shit has to stop and needs to be looked at…Serious stuff went down. It needs to be investigated and people need to be held accountable.”

-In a new interview, Kendall Jenner said “I am a stoner, no one knows that, so that’s the first time I’ve ever really said anything out there.” Groundbreaking stuff.

-Succession’s Sarah Snook has been cast in an adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion. That is my second fave Austen and there hasn’t really been an adaptation I’ve likes, so I need this to be good!

-This is the best tweet I’ve seen about the JK Rowling mess: “JK Rowling is really out here policing gender identity when she literally identifies as a man to sell more books.?!!!!!!?!)!!”

Jude Law is having a big week. His HBO show debuted last night, and he revealed that he’s welcomed baby no. 6.

-Screening Tenet might have actually harmed movie theatres in the long run, as they have a stronger hand when negotiating rent if they remained closed.

Jerry Harris, the breakout star of Netflix’s docuseries Cheer, is reportedly under FBI investigation for the soliciting sex with minors. God, 2020 won’t let up.

-HBO Max has handed out a straight-to-series order for a pirate comedy from executive producer Taika Waititi called Our Flag Means Death.

-Here’s a new trailer for The Mandalorian’s new season.

-Monsters have taken over the surface of the Earth but Dylan O’Brien is ready to travel above ground to find his girlfriend in the first trailer for Love and Monsters. This looks like dumb fun which is exactly what I’m looking for these days.

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‬ Talk Family and Politics

Chrissy Teigen John Legend

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen‬ cover the latest issue of Vanity Fair, in which they talk about getting together (“It got serious pretty quickly. She just entertained the hell out of me, texting me. What people respond to in her tweets today was the same energy in those texts. I didn’t know that I wanted someone funny until I was actually with someone funny”) and why they’re supporting Elizabeth Warren (“She’s the best candidate running today and she comes at it with joy and with sincerity and with a wealth of knowledge and experience”).

-Oof, the video of Ben Affleck stumbling out of a Halloween party this weekend is a hard watch. He was spotted outside Jennifer Garner’s house yesterday, where he told paps “It was a slip but I’m not going to let it derail me.”

-Speaking of celebs who seem like they might need help, Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki was arrested in Austin late Saturday night and is reportedly facing two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication after he allegedly struck both a bartender and the general manager of a club in the face. Terrible timing, especially since he just landed a new show.

-Halloween hasn’t even happened yet, but Gabrielle Union has already won it this year.

-Apple+ lifted the embargo on the reviews of their new TV shows, and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon‘s Morning Show is not getting good reviews. Critics only saw the first three episodes so far, but do not seem impressed. Surprisingly, the one people seem to like most is Hailee Steinfeld’s Dickinson.

James McAvoy and production assistant Lisa Liberati (who he started dating in 2017 — two months after splitting from his wife of 11 years) are reportedly married.

-I guess I wasn’t the only one this morning who was surprised/revolted to learn that they’re still subscribed to Louis C.K.’s newsletter. I have never hit an unsub link faster.

-Game of Thrones creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff appeared at the Austin Film Festival this weekend, and someone live-tweeted their panel answers — a thread which quickly went viral because their admissions of incompetence were jaw-droppingly candid. They acknowledged that they made “basic writing mistakes” on the pilot, had no idea how to work with costume designers, didn’t feel the need to delve into the books to learn about the characters, and called the whole process an “expensive film school.” Talented female and POC writers are out there sweating in the trenches for their big break, but these two unqualified dolts were given $6 million an episode to learn on the job. And they’re not too embarrassed to openly talk about it! (I mean, why should they be? They landed Star Wars trilogy despite of it.) White dudes will always fail up…

-In the bossiest boss move, Jane Fonda accepted her BAFTA award while being arrested!

-Netflix might be planning to roll out a feature that allows users to binge at higher speeds, which might be the worst move ever. Tighten up your damn shows through writing and editing, not with fast-forwarding. (Aaron Paul also has strong feelings about this.)

-I love that Revenge costars Emily Vancamp and Josh Bowman still going strong eight years later.

Trent Reznor addressed the Nine Inch Nails sample in “Old Time Road” — and his response is a pretty damn awesome example of lifting up smaller artists: “I said [to my manager], ‘Look, I’m fine with it. I get how stuff goes. They’re not saying they didn’t sample it. Just work it out, but don’t be a roadblock to this.’…Those guys should be the ones the spotlight is on. It was flattering, and I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but I don’t feel like it’s my place to shine a light on me for that.”

This Paul Rudd video is amazing because: 1) splitting an apple with your bare hands is a killer party trick, and 2) I learned that his new Netflix show costars the amazing actress from Hulu’s This Way Up.

-The CW is in a spinoff frenzy right now. The latest is a new Superman & Lois Lane series from Greg Berlanti, following their life as parents. I’m not mad about it. Tyler Hoechlin was so, so good in the crossover last year, and I liked what little we saw of Elizabeth Tulloch‘s Lois.

-There’s a new sneak trailer for Ford v Ferrari, starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale.

Chris Evans’ Puppy Pushups

John Krasinski challenged Chris Evans and Miles Teller (ugh) to the #22PushUpChallenge, and Chris’ response features the most adorable dog distraction ever!

-You know what’s nuts? After that totally gross video that came out on Friday of Johnny Depp hurling a wine glass at Amber Heard, I still saw people on Twitter cape for him. I don’t get it. Let’s see what they say now that TMZ is reporting he once accidentally cut off the tip of his finger while fighting with her, then wrote on the wall in blood “Billy Bob” – the name of the actor he was accusing her of cheating on him with. Charming.

-Also, I appreciated this article on how Heard and Lindsay Lohan suffer from being imperfect victims.

Justin Bieber has threatened to make his Instagram private if commenters don’t stop attacking his new lady, Sofia Richie (who is Lionel Richie‘s daughter. You know who I found out this weekend is NOT actually Lionel Richie’s daughter? Nicole Richie. #MindBlown)

Justin‘s pleas for civility somehow led to a pissing contest between him and Selena Gomez, with her insinuating he cheated — and him shooting back with “oh I forgot about you and Zayn?” Not surprisingly, their fans spent the weekend having meltdowns.

Thomas Gibson is reporting mulling a lawsuit over his Criminal Minds firing. I guess that explains why his statement didn’t include an apology.

-Meanwhile, his ex-costar Shemar Moore is subtweeting him. (Also, I’m now going to end every Instagram video with “church is over.”)

Jared Padalecki got bad service from a waitress — so he posted a photo of her face to his 3M followers. And then he defended the post by comparing people who say he shouldn’t complain to people who say he shouldn’t be depressed. Nope, nope, all the nopes. You don’t get to play any of those cards, Dean.

This is a great read about how Mr Robot isn’t getting the critical reception this summer of Netflix shows like Stranger Things and The Get Down, but at least it’s trying something completely different.

-Speaking of Stranger Things, this interview/lovefest between Aaron Paul and the little girl who plays Eleven is all kinds of adorable. And then his wife jumps on the phone so she can fangirl too? Kill me now.

-Bad word of mouth resulted in a huge Batman V Superman-like box office drop in Suicide Squad’s second weekend. So why is WB still heavily investing in Zack Snyder’s vision of the DCEU?

-Lowly movie studio employees are rising up. First we got last week’s open letter to the WB and now the comments section of an interview with the directors of Sausage Party was overrun with anonymous sources claiming animators were reportedly forced to work for free and generally treated like poo. (I saw the film over the weekend. I thought it was just meh.)

Tom Hiddleston is blaming the deluge of photos of him with Taylor Swift on the fact that “we all live in a world where every phone has a camera.” Sure, but do we also all live in a world where everyone has long-lensed professional cameras on remote beaches?

The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore was canceled today, which sucks because they’re not even going to get to cover the election. It’s not exactly surprising giving its lack of ratings and buzz.  Wilmore released a statement about “The Unblackening” of the Comedy Network.

-This is weak sauce: Adele says she was approached by the Super Bowl to do the next halftime show and declined, so the NFL and Pepsi ran to Billboard with a statement about how there was no “formal” offer. Yeah. Because she declined.

Bella Thorne and Gregg Sulkin split after more than a year together. I have no idea who either of these people are, but my Twitter timeline is devastated. Sorry?

-Congrats to Kevin Hart, who married longtime girlfriend Eniko Parrish on Saturday.

Natalie Portman gushing about French women sounds like me every time I visit France.

-Is it weird that these photos make me want to party with Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus?

-This is such a good look at Nate Parker’s problematic past and how that may (or should?) change our view of Birth of a Nation.

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are oh so pretty in the Allied trailer.

-The untold story of NASA’s genius black women gets the spotlight in the Hidden Figures trailer, starring Taraji P. Henson.
