Jennifer Aniston: ‘I’m just a very fortunate and blessed human being’

-The Morning Show promo tour is in full swing, with Jennifer Aniston covering the latest issue of People. “I’m in a really peaceful place. I have a job that I love, I have people in my life who are everything to me, and I have beautiful dogs.”

Aniston also did an interview with Howard Stern, during which she squashed the rumors of tensions between her and Brad Pitt (“Brad and I are buddies; we’re friends”), and insisted nothing romantic ever happened between her and David Schwimmer (“I would proudly say I banged Schwimmer if that happened. But no”).

-Sources tell People that Britney Spears was “very nervous about speaking in front of the judge” yesterday but insisted on doing it because “this is her life and she wants big changes.” Audio of her testimony was posted on Youtube, and despite stammering a bit and talking really fast, she sounded articulate and in control.

-Meanwhile, despite his immense contribution to how she’s been treated, Justin Timberlake tweeted: “Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time. We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live.” Perez Hilton also tried to get in on the action with some empathetic tweets. Look, as someone who has a messy past with celebrity coverage, I get that we’re all reckoning with our role in all of this. Or we’re supposed to be. But these two seemingly having zero self-awareness, instead pretending they didn’t have a hand in what’s happened to her.

-You thought Gigi Hadid’s pasta cabinets were bad? Cara Delevingne opened the doors of her new LA home and showed off her vagina tunnel, ball pit, hat room, Playboy arcade game, David Bowie shrine and the razor scooter she zips around on so the hard floors don’t hurt her feet. “Hugh Hefner is a big inspiration in this house.” I can’t stop watching this video.

-I love this story about a little boy who was sent to the principal because the kept insisting “Superman is my uncle” — and then his uncle Henry Cavill came to pick him up.

-So it sounds like that Deux Moi blind from a couple of weeks ago might have been onto something– according to THR, John Boyega walked off the set of Netflix’s Rebel Ridge mid-shoot due to issues such as the script and his accommodations. Filmmakers reportedly discovered he left when they went to his hotel and found he had checked out. (His agent denies this and says he left due to family issues.) This is so tough because, if true, it’s such a bad look. But Hollywood has a long history of blacklisting black actors with an undeserved “difficult” label, so it’s hard to just accept this story at face value.

Shia LaBeouf and his ex-wife Mia Goth were spotted arm-in-arm at Disneyland.

Sharon Stone was not impressed when she asked what it was like to work with Meryl Streep: “You didn’t say, ‘Meryl finally got to work with Sharon Stone.’ Or we finally got to work together…Viola Davis is every bit the actress Meryl Streep is. Emma Thompson. Judy Davis. Olivia Colman. Kate Winslet, for f**k’s sake. But you say Meryl and everybody falls on the floor.”

-Even Rihanna can’t convince me that fuzzy bucket hats should be back in style. Unless your name is Cher Horowitz, I don’t approve.

-The Good Fight’s season five premiere takes a wild stab at recapping 2020. (It premieres today on CBS All Access, and July 1 here in Canada on the W Network).

-Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus revealed he has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy.

-Here a good read on why Kenya Barris‘s Netflix deal (the biggest overall deal in comedy) unraveled.

-Mumford and Sons​ lead guitarist and banjoist Winston Marshall recently came under scrutiny for his support of a right-wing provocateur. Now, he’s leaving the band so he can “speak freely” about the “evils of political extremism.” Buh-bye!

Vin Diesel said he feuded with The Rock to push his acting “where it needed to be,” saying “We had to get there and sometimes, at that time, I could give a lot of tough love. Not Felliniesque, but I would do anything I’d have to do in order to get performances in anything I’m producing.” I don’t know what’s funnier: that Vin Diesel thinks he’s qualified to give acting advise, or that he cited Fellini.

James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan star as a couple forced to re-evaluate their relationship in lockdown in BBC’s Together. I wanna watch this so badly!

-Netflix puts a new spin on the Old West in the trailer for The Harder They Fall — with a stacked cast that includes Regina King, Jonathan Majors, Idris Elba, Zazie Beetz, LaKeith Stanfield, and Delroy Lindo.

Bennifer’s Cozy Dinner

-Either Jennifer Lopez is flashing a super problematic symbol (highly unlikely), she’s giving the paps the ok (slightly more likely) or she’s just grabbing his shoulder awkwardly (most likely) in these pics of her and Ben Affleck packing on the PDA at dinner in Malibu.

-Speaking of reunited couples, Angelina Jolie was spotted leaving ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller’s house.

Chrissy Teigen has returned to the public eye sooner than I expected, but this apology she posted is very good. “I was a troll, full stop. And I am so sorry.”

Jessica Biel appeared on Dax Shepard‘s podcast and talked about welcoming her “secret COVID baby” with Justin Timberlake. “It wasn’t like it was supposed to be a secret. It was just COVID happened, and then I went to Montana with my family and never left.”

-The team behind Harley Quinn says DC asked them to remove a scene from Season 3 in which Batman goes down on Catwoman, saying “Heroes don’t do that.”

-There was a Scrubs reunion on Celebrity Family Feud.

-This deep dive into Meghan Markle hate accounts is super disturbing.

-Girls5eva has been renewed for season 2. I really enjoyed the first season. It’s joke density reminded me of 30 Rock (which makes sense, since it’s also produced by Tina Fey).

-Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is releasing a three-issue comic book about a woman who gets superpowers when she’s on her period. (Weirdly, one of the characters on the excellent new TV show We Are Lady Parts has a subplot about writing a similar comic.)

Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks made their official public debut at the Gold Dinner 2021 in Australia.

-Black Widow tickets are actually on sale. This film might finally see the light of day after all!

-Also, finally happening: Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton‘s wedding. She just had her bridal shower. She’s also been spotted wearing a new ring so maybe the ceremony has already happened?

-There’s a lot of talk about how In the Heights failed to unseat A Quiet Place II from the top of the box office, but I’m not sure that was ever a realistic expectation.

-Here’s our first look at Netflix’s Persuasion and I really don’t know how we’re supposed to be rooting for Cosmo Jarvis‘ Captain Wentworth when Henry Golding‘s Mr. Elliot is right there.

-Here’s the first trailer for the new season of The Morning Show. At least they let Reese Witherspoon ditch her terrible wig.

Jason Momoa Gets Dirty

Jason Momoa covers Men’s Health splattered in mud courtesy of the dune buggy-themed photo shoot. In the interview, he talks about filming Dune, being a good dad and a good husband, working through fear creatively, and gathering the nerve to ask out Lisa Bonet.

-Speaking of Health covers, Normani landed the Women’s Health one.

-Well, this is huge: Wonder Woman 1984 just became the biggest movie to drop on streaming, coming to HBO Max (and theatres where open) on Christmas Day. With all the vaccine news, I’m surprised Warner Bros didn’t just hold it until next summer/fall, but it looks like they’re willing to sacrifice the movie to beef up HBO Max subscribers. Bad news for theatres — and bad news for Canadians. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it on streaming by xmas, even though most (but not all) of HBO Max’s programming typically comes here via Crave. But Crave says it won’t stream the film until after its “standard theatrical windows,” which is traditionally 90 days.

-In other HBO Max news, they just greenlit a 4-episode adaptation of the comic series DMZ from Roberto Patino and Ava DuVernay, starring Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt.

-The Fresh Prince reunion just dropped on HBO Max, and everyone’s talking about the intense conversation between Will Smith and Janet Hubert (who played the first Aunt Viv). In this clip, she tells him “Calling a black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death and its hard enough being a dark-skinned black woman in this business.”

-A Back To The Future writer revealed that Biff Tannen was inspired by Trump. Yeah, that tracks.

-Meanwhile, Michael J. Fox recalled sitting next to Princess Diana at the Back to the Future premiere. “The movie started and I had to go pee. So, I am sitting there in agony. I can’t say anything to her, and I can’t turn my back on her. So the rest of the night was a nightmare, a pee-floating nightmare.”

Hugh Grant considers Paddington 2 to be “kind of a masterpiece,” even if his kids think otherwise.

Demi Lovato’s new look is making me want to chop all of my hair off. Wow!

-The paid Instagram posts from celebrities are out of control recently (I guess it’s the easiest way to make money while stuck at home in a pandemic) but this ad from Sarah Michelle Gellar and Shannen Doherty is very charming — mostly because it’s clear neither of them are great cooks. Did Shannen even bother to cut those potatoes?

-Speaking of paid partnerships, Jennifer Aniston just signed a big one with Vital Proteins. I love this for her. I used to take their collagen peptides for recovery back in the good ol’ days when it was safe to go to the gym.

-I’m thrilled that Kristen Stewart‘s gay holiday romcom is getting strong reviews. I mean, I was watching it regardless, but this is nice.

Others have said it better than I ever could, but this article about the rise of “ambient TV” misses a whole lot of points. Also, Emily In Paris wasn’t even developed for Netflix originally.

-Here’s the first trailer for season 2 of Batwoman, with Javicia Leslie taking over the titular role.

-Here’s the trailer for Music, starring Kate Hudson and co-written and directed by Sia.

Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley’s lost YA movie Chaos Walking finally gets a trailer. The production on this thing was cursed.
