Meghan Markle Goes Rogue

-As soon as I saw the photos and video of Meghan Markle‘s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, I knew Lainey would lose it over the excessive belly-cupping. But were the stomach grabs and protocol-breaking dark nail polish her way of trying to send a message?

Jennifer Aniston said that when she first moved to Los Angeles, she lived in a haunted house with a ghost that hated her roommate. This sounds like a better premise than Friends…

-The Oscars might move ahead with no host — because clearly NO WOMEN EXIST!

-In completely unrelated news, the crowd who attended Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls anniversary dinner was amazing.

-If the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t make my top 10 list this year, it’s going to come really, really close. This gag reel is also a delight.

-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth were Netflix’s most-rewatched original movies this year. I only contributed 27% of that.

-The reviews are in for Aquaman, and critics seem to think it’s a bit of an overlong mess, but a really delightful, fun mess. Huh.

-Taylor Swift attended her boyfriend’s movie premiere, but kept it on the DL.

Elisabeth Moss struggles to get over her split from her girlfriend in Brandi Carlile’s new music video.

-I really like this take on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Everyone raves about that show, but I didn’t make it through the first season. It felt like it was leaning into all of the worst things about the Gilmore Girls.

Jameela Jamil is still on the detox tea thing? I mean, ok I guess but this seems like low-hanging fruit.

Nicki Minaj might have a new boyfriend — and her fans aren’t impressed.

-Is there a better late night guest than John Mulaney? I could listen to him tell stories about dragging Pete Davidson to Steely Dan concerts all day…

-Here’s the new trailer for True Detective season 3. Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff are trying to drag me back into this, but I need to stay strong!

 

Jennifer Aniston Talks “Successful” Marriages and Lack of Social Media

Jennifer Aniston Elle Magazine

-In her new Elle cover storyJennifer Aniston talks about her marriages (“My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion…and when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore”), potential future children (“Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership — how that child comes in… or doesn’t? And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to”) and her lack of social media presence (“If I’m sitting here posting something about my dogs or I’m Boomeranging my coffee mug in the morning, that’s just giving away one more piece of something that is mine”).

-The Oscars host search continued. Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting less than 24 hours after being announced because people found his (not very hidden) anti-gay tweets. I don’t believe this will hurt his career AT ALL, but those tweets weren’t secret. The Academy should have known better.

-Now the search is on for another host. Tiffany Haddish and/or The Rock would be awesome, no?

-The Cut writer of that Priyanka Chopra piece has apologized. But where’s her editor in all this?

-Look, I don’t post pics of celebrities’ kids, but holy crap you need to Google the new photo of George and Amal Clooney‘s son because it is is golden.

Leonardo DiCaprio just can’t stop buying dinosaur bones, which isn’t weird at all.

-The Good Place threw in another crazy, Earth-shattering twist, and I love this article on all the logistics of it.

-Well, look at that: Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker is a ratings success (which is funny because I saw a lot of fanboy tweets talking about what a failure it is….)

Saoirse Ronan is reportedly dating her Mary, Queen of Scots costar Jack Lowden.

-Wow, did I ever love this story on how marketing screwed over Jennifer’s Body, because no one knew how to sell a horror movie made by women for teen girls, and because everyone at the time was roorting for Diablo Cody and Megan Fox to fail.

-Seeing as how the Game of Thrones crew has talked a lot about filming fake scenes and printing fake scripts, I’m not convinced this leaked spoiler is legit.

-The Avengers: Endgame trailer is all anyone’s talking about. I can’t believe it’s coming out in April (just a month after Captain Marvel). I’m in no way complaining, but it feels like I *just* saw Infinity War. Also, here’s trailer, but with Boyz II Men’s End Of The Road  instead, which makes it even better.

Jennifer Aniston: “I’m Not Heartbroken”

Jennifer Aniston InStyle

-In an Instyle interview with her pal Molly McNearneyJimmy Kimmel‘s wife — Jennifer Aniston talks about her recent divorce from Justin Theroux (“The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors”), shooting a film with Dolly Parton (“She’s magic”), and a possible Friends reunion (“I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know. So many shows are being successfully rebooted.”)

-I’m loving that that cast of Crazy Rich Asians is getting magazine covers. I’m rooting for this movie to make a million kajillion dollars.

Topher Grace does this thing where he edits down movie franchises into one concise cut. (His Star Wars prequel edit is legendary.) Now That 70s Show star has blessed the world with a 2-hour version of The Hobbit trilogy.

Chris Hardwick is not just returning to work following those sexual assault allegations, he’s picking up more gigs. Besides his Talking Dead job, he’ll host The Wall and is set to appear as a guest judge on AGT after.

Seth Rogen has confirmed Judd Apatow‘s story that he was the one who told Tom Cruise that you can watch porn on the internet. “I mean, I can’t remember — it was like 12 years ago or something like that. I think generally my reaction was, ‘You are a very sheltered man.'”

-Set It Up’s Glen Powell will be in Top Gun 2 after all, just in a different role. I wonder if this is in response to the social media outcry after Miles Teller got the original gig over him?

-These photos of Reese Witherspoon throwing ice cream at Meryl Streep on the set of Big Little Lies has me *very* excited for season 2.

-Everyone is pissed that Jennifer Lopez will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs instead of Missy Elliot. Except, apparently, Missy Elliot.

-I tried to watch the first season of The Sinner but I thought it was horrible (and not because of Jessica Biel, surprisingly!). But the second season arrives this week with good reviews — and the presence of Carrie Coon, who makes everything better.

-Oh ffs. Hollywood is now rebooting ALF.

-Despite a cast letter asking for James Gunn to be reinstated as the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3, Disney is not planning on rehiring the filmmaker after offensive tweets from his past resurfaced. “I don’t see Disney re-hiring him,” says one person close to the matter tells Variety.

Ian Somerhalder says he could no longer be part of the The Vampire Diaries cast’s group text because he’s a father now and can’t be bothered by people’s silly emojis. Sure.

-It’s a good day for listicles if you’re a TV fan. The Ringer pulled together the best 100 episodes of the century (gotta say, I didn’t predict The OC pilot beating Breaking Bad’s “Ozymandias,” but I dig it!), while  TV Insider chose the 65 best episodes of the 21st century (another good list, but who picks Buffy’s musical over “The Body”?!).

-Wait, so Anna Wintour is NOT leaving Vogue? And she may have pulled a Miranda Priestly? That’s delicious!

Oscar Isaac and Mélanie Laurent star in the Operation Finale trailer.
