Chris Evans’ Embarrassing Headshot

Chris Evans shared his terrible first headshot and the internet is having a field day dunking on it.

Jennifer Aniston revealed her 50th birthday trip to Mexico with Courteney Cox and Jimmy Kimmel‘s wife, Molly McNearney, turned scary when one of the plane’s wheels fell off. She also revealed that McNearney texted Kimmel that she loved him and that he’d “always been an incredible husband” — to which he replied “I just signed up for Tinder, but I promise not to activate it until we know what’s what.'”

-Sorry, ladies. Keanu Reeves‘ rep is denying the quotes in which he said he was lonely and looking for love.

-I’ve never seen Deadwood but I’m so happy for its fans that HBO is airing the movie revival tonight. It sounds like a love letter to the show.

-Not all Game Of Thrones fans are writing whiny petitions. As a counterpoint, fans have raised more than $125K for charity to thank the show’s stars. Emilia Clarke posted an emotional video thanking them for their donations.

Diplo insists he didn’t ruin Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner‘s secret wedding by livestreaming it — despite Jonas and Turner both voicing their displeasure about it in separate interviews.

-The NBA reportedly had a chat with Drake about his courtside antics before the finals.

-I don’t usually get moved by reality TV but between this clip of a blind contestant on MasterChef, and this autistic contestant on America’s Got Talent, I’m a blubbery mess.

-The reviews are in for Big Little Lies season 2, which critics seem to find a bit more scattered than the first season, but everyone agrees that Meryl Streep steals the show.

Kate McKinnon appeared on Billy on the Street — where she pretended to be Reese Witherspoon.

-It’s supposed to rain a lot this weekend, but at least there’s a ton of good TV and movies dropping: Ali Wong‘s Netflix romcom Always Be My Maybe, Amazon’s Good Omens, and Ava Duvernay‘s Netflix mini-series When They See Us — all which are getting glowing reviews.

-Good Omens star David Tennant being confused by emojis’ hidden sex meanings is gold.

Jon Hamm signs all of his emails “HAMM” and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

-Jesus, John Cleese. It was bad and now you’re making it worse.

-I’m surprisingly loving Katy Perry’s new song. Huh.

Robert Pattinson has officially been confirmed as the new Batman. I have no doubt he can do broody and gothic, but I definitely agree with this thread that it’s a very weird career choice for a guy who’s purposefully eschewed fame/the spotlight thus far.

-Also, I can’t believe the movie is going to feature get another take on Batman’s origin story. I never, ever again need to sit through another scene of Martha Wayne’s pearls tumbling to the ground.

-Wait, Aya Cash is in Fosse/Verdon?! God, I need to watch this thing.

-There’s rumblings of an Ally McBeal reboot. I’d much rather they just stream the original somewhere. Robert Downey Jr. was at his most charming in that show.

-I love that the entire internet is obsessed with Fleabag’s black jumpsuit.

-AMC, which films The Walking Dead in Atlanta, says they’ll “re-evaluate” if the abortion bill goes into effect there .

Alia Shawkat and Holliday Grainger star in Sophie Hyde’s Animals trailer.

Taylor Swift’s New Song Gets Mixed Reviews

-I’ve watched Taylor Swift’s new video a trillion times already today because the song is catchy as hell (despite the critics — The Atlantic called it “everything wrong with pop,” Stereogum called it “hollow” and “lazy,” Vulture said it’s “cute but cloying,” and The Independent called it “toothless.”) But what’s the clue she supposedly embedded in the video? Is she engaged?

-Speaking of engagement speculation, Mindy Kaling’s Beyonce audition is very funny but is that a ring we see?!

-Our long national nightmare may finally be over: it looks like Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson have split.

-High School Musical actress Monique Coleman recalled the time when Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron got into such a bad fight on set that they shut down production for a day.

-This is a fascinating, sprawling conversation with Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern, in which Stewart talks about her sexuality (“It’s easier to have a longer conversation that requires patience, versus f*cking five years ago, when people were demanding that I come out as gay. And I was like, ‘Dude, how do you know? I don’t even know!'”) and Dern reveals how they grew close while filming JT Leroy (“When we had social time, Kristen adopted my teenage son, who is obsessed with her. They became besties. That made it easier. I had a built-in nanny, co-star, love interest — an all-in-one”).

-More and more US outlets are starting to cover the Prince William affair rumours. The latest: The Cut.

-There were lots of very good takes published today on the recent trend of celebrities confusing criticism with personal attacks, including from Variety, Buzzfeed and Slate.

-Oh and Micheal Che is still whining (and confusing Variety with a blog).

Bradley Cooper taught Ellen some Italian curse words on today’s show.

-I can only assume that Felicity Huffman is just *thrilled* that pal Vanessa Williams is talking to the press about their post-arrest text exchange.

Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual assault trial has been postponed to September 9. Welp, that’s gonna make for an interesting TIFF.

-Avengers: Endgame is already tearing up all the record books with a $140M-$150M opening day, blasting away Star Wars: Force Awakens’ record first day of $119.1M. This thing is tracking for an opening weekend of at least $315M — and could make $1B worldwide.

-Everyone’s really worried about what’s going to happen in the crypts this weekend on Game of Thrones, but this fan theory is great.

George and Amal Clooney throw epic pizza parties, according to Adam Sandler, who attended one with Jennifer Aniston when they were shooting in Italy. “They made us homemade pizza. It was an amazing time. I sat next to Bono. It was a great day…Every time I’m with Jennifer something great happens because everybody loves Jennifer and I tend to stay at home and do nothing.” I kind of love that Aniston seemed to get Clooney in the split with Pitt.

-Also, Sandler and Aniston have teamed up again for a Netflix movie. At least it seems like they got a cool paid vacation out of it?

Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph Talk Comedy, Bechdel Tests

-I honestly cannot wait for Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph‘s Netflix comedy Wine Country, and their Vanity Fair feature makes me even more excited.

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele delighted onlookers this weekend when they turned up to play drinking games at a gay bar in the West Village. I always forget that they’ve been friends for a while.

Barbra Streisand had to clarify her Michael Jackson remarks after the backlash, saying she feels ‘nothing but sympathy” for the victims.

-I thought the trailers were really iffy, so I’m surprised by the glowing reviews Shazam is getting.

Shane West attended his A Walk to Remember costar Mandy Moore‘s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, which warms my cold cold heart.

-Mel B confirmed she and Geri Halliwell had a brief fling during the Spice Girls’ glory days. “(Geri) is going to hate me for this because she is all posh in her country house and her husband, but it’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.”

Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck publicly feuded on The View, but in her new book O’Donnell admits to crushing on her cohost. “I think there were underlying lesbian undertones on both parts.”

-Netflix’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was directed by a female, but a dude gets the sequel.

-The fifth and final season of Jane the Virgin debuts Wednesday and the reviews of the final batch of episodes are gushingly positive.

-Meanwhile, while Phoebe Waller-Bridge leaving Killing Eve, the reviews for season 2 aren’t as across-the-board positive as they were in the first season.

-I’ll never be brave enough to watch it, but I love that Jordan Peele‘s Us had a historic weekend at the box office.

-These two little kids did a cover of Radiohead’s Creep on The Voice Germany and I can’t stop listening to it.

-The rumours that Avengers: Endgame might actually be 3 hours long are gaining traction. FML.

-18 years ago today Bjork wore the swan dress to the Oscars. Never forget!

-Apple trotted out a bunch of big name (mostly white) celebrities to announce their new TV offering today — but we didn’t learn much. It will launch on Apple devices and smart TVs in the fall (meaning they’ll miss this year’s Emmy eligibility). It will be ad-free, VOD (everything downloadable), get new titles added every month, and also allow you to watch your other paid TV subscription services like Hulu and Amazon Prime. But there was no word on pricing, when each show will debut, whether all episodes of said shows will drop at once, etc. But hey, Oprah is doing a couple of documentaries and a book club for them so…yay?

-Also, it’s crazy that they didn’t show trailers for any of their new shows — just a quick sizzle reel even though series like The Morning Show, starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell, has apparently already filmed. And having Steven Spielberg there to shill for Apple’s new streaming service in light of his Netflix stance was beyond odd.

Legends of Tomorrow returns next week and I honestly can’t wait. This show is pure joy.
