Sandra Oh Celebrates Korean Designers

-This Sandra Oh fashion shoot in Porter magazine is fabulous and just what we need to kick off the weekend. (The interview is fire, too.)

Pete Davidson and Margaret Qualley have reportedly called it quits. But they didn’t even get around to regrettable matching tattoos yet!

This video of Paul Rudd demonstrating how he takes pictures of celebrities in a way that makes it look like a butt is hovering over them is possibly the best thing I’ve ever seen.

-Grace and Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Sam Waterston were arrested this afternoon in DC during a climate change protest.

-This documentary clip of Meghan Markle getting emotional about her negative press hit me right in the heart guts. “Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m ok.”

Christina Hendricks announced her split from husband Geoffrey Arend. He got 10 years of marriage out of her, which is about 9.5 more than most of us predicted.

-I love Paul Feig, and this interview cements it. He says of all of his films having female leads: “I was an only child. I grew up next to a family of eight kids, six of whom were girls. I liked the humour of joking around with my female friends because male humour devolves, eventually, into homophobia, punching and name-calling. I’d rather just have goofy fun.”

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston recreated one of their most memorable scenes together from Friends, and it was all kinds of great.

-This lip sync video with Penn Badgley is incredibly hot. (I once saw him on a dance floor with Zoe Kravitz and I thought they were going to make the whole place spontaneously combust.)

-I finally got around to watching the Succession season finale. Are people seriously creating conspiracy theories about that end shot? Even Brian Cox doesn’t buy it. It was more like — game recognize game.

Jennifer Lopez was spotted wearing a wedding dress on the set of her new movie and … is it supposed to fit like that?

-Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will no longer be being released as planned in China because Quentin Tarantino refuses to trim scenes of violence or the one that featured Bruce Lee sparring with Brad Pitt’s stuntman character. Which — and I have never said this before and likely won’t again but — good for Quentin Tarantino.

-Here’s the trailer for Bombshell, starring Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.

 

Jennifer Aniston Talks Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein

jennifer-aniston-variety

Jennifer Aniston covers Variety to promote her new Apple series The Morning Show, and talks about researching Matt Lauer before filming  (“It’s such a strange thing; it felt oddly like my dad did something terrible. I trusted him and had been interviewed by him. He was there for so many moments in my life. And when Friends was ending, it was Katie [Couric] and Matt interviewing us”), says that Harvey Weinstein knew not to bully her (“He knew better. I remember, right when [his ex-wife] Georgina’s clothing line Marchesa was starting. That’s when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He’d be like, ‘Ok, so I’d like you to wear one of these to the premiere.’ And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.’ That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress'”), and explains why the Friends reunion hasn’t happened (“Because our producers wouldn’t want it, wouldn’t let us. Look, it’s not been without our desire to, because our fans have wanted it so much”).

Ann Curry tweeted about Matt Lauer‘s accuser: “Brooke Nevils is a credible young woman of good character. She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something, brimming with talent. I believe she is telling the truth. And that breaks my heart.”

-Meanwhile, Nevils has responded to his denial: “I am not afraid of him now, regardless of his threats, bullying, and the shaming and predatory tactics I knew he would (and now has) tried to use against me. The shame in this story belongs to him.”

-In Elle, Natalie Portman says she’s glad to have shaken off her “manic pixie dream girl” image from Garden State. “It’s definitely a relief to be out of the phase where you’re supposed to be adorable…It certainly is stifling to be the one who’s enacting someone else’s idea of how a young woman should behave.”

-Also in Elle, Zendaya opens up about her anxiety: “I already know after this interview is over, I’m going to spiral about it for weeks.”

Drew Barrymore just landed a daytime talk show. I think she’ll be great at it, but with new shows from Kelly Clarkson, Keke Palmer and RuPaul the field is getting crowded.

-Ruh roh. Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been fired from The Masked Singer Australia.

-Now that we’re all pretty much over Chris Pratt, which famous Chris should take his place in the best Chris ranking?

-Do you remember how after Fresh Prince, Will Smith said that he and his manager sat down and studied the top 10 grossing movies of all time to determine their comment elements, and then set out to only make those? This article highlights how his most recent career moves have been just as methodical.

-Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto reportedly felt “alienated and upset” when Warner Bros. decided to move ahead with a solo Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix. So there might be something redeeming about Joker after all!

-Movie stars continue to jump to Apple’s upcoming streaming service. Clive Owen and Julianne Moore have signed on for a new series.

-Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh appeared on The Social this week and talked about DMing Rihanna.

Robert Downey Jr. has asked not to be considered for an Oscar for Avengers: Endgame which is very nice but like, who told him he was being considered?

-I really like this piece on how Succession uses Shiv as a weapon. Everyone is so ruthless on this show that I think audiences automatically gravitate to the female characters like Gerri and Shiv for glimpses of humanity, and last week’s episode shattered that.

-Even though I’m about to get on an Air Canada flight and bracing myself for the worst (because it’s AC and they’re usually terrible), this commercial Sandra Oh did for them about how to travel like a Canadian is very cute. (Speaking of which I’m taking a few days off. Be back next week!)

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt voice teenage brothers on a quest to meet their dad in the trailer for Pixar’s Onward.

Elle Fanning Talks Losing at Paintball to Angelina Jolie

elle-fanning-instyle

Elle Fanning claims she had an epic paintball outing with Angelina Jolie: “Oh, she’s aggressive..I had never gone paintballing before. We were in full-on armor. We were the only people in the place, with all of her kids. She and I were not on the same team. I was so bad. I hit their security guard in the neck, and he was on my team! Angelina’s really good.” Pics or it didn’t happen.

Mariah Carey is writing her memoirs, which I am gonna read the crap out of. She promises it will be packed with revelations: “Born to a black father and white mother. Lived in basically very humble beginnings. Came out of it…And public humiliation and going through the wringer.” The chapters on Tommy Mottola and Nick Cannon will be worth the price of the book alone.

-In other book-y news, Rihanna is launching a “visual autobiography.” Sweet! Who needs pesky words anyway?

-I’m surprised how traditional Hailey Bieber’s wedding dress is. I mean, it’s very lovely, but not what I was expecting from a 22-year-old model.

-Meanwhile, Justin Bieber mocked Taylor Swift’s banana video.

Ellen Degeneres is having a very bad day. She’s getting deservedly dragged for hanging out with George W Bush, and this tweet about her terrible reputation is going viral.

-It’s been 10 years since Jim and Pam tied the knot on The Office so EW talked to John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Paul Feig, Greg Daniels and Mindy Kaling about the secret ceremony, the last-minute dance, and how a horse almost became the focus.

Jennifer Aniston told Howard Stern that shortly after divorcing Justin Theroux, she sought a psychologist to work through the breakup after he was spotted with various hot young things. She also said she had dinner last week with the full Friends cast.

-It seems like everyone I know has had a Liam Hemsworth sighting in Toronto this week and it’s my turn, dammit.

-The End of the F$*&ing World is coming back to Netflix on Nov 5. I really loved the first season and I’m not sure it needs another one, but I’m intrigued about where it goes from here.

-I’d never listened to the Thirst Aid Kit podcast before but my god, that Dan Levy episode is perfection.

Joaquin Phoenix thinks he’s describing his craft, but he’s actually just describing an eating disorder.

-I’m not the biggest Marc Maron fan but damn, his take on Todd Phillips’ “woke” comments is perfect.

-Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart will release her first book of poems next spring. If nothing else, we’ll get a hilarious episode of Who Weekly outta this.

-Matt Lauer has resurfaced…on TikTok.

-I love that Aaron Paul is doing a Twitter scavenger hunt for premiere tickets to the Breaking Bad movie.

-Also, this video of the cast reuniting for the L.A. premiere made me very happy.

-With the rave reviews A Marriage Story and The Irishman are getting, everyone’s wondering how much money Netflix left on the table by not doing limited theatrical releases.

-Speaking of streaming services being stupid with money, Apple’s deal for Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell’s musical A Christmas Carol includes a $60 million price tag just for talent fees.

-Richard Madden, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth and Mark Strong star in the trailer for the WWI drama 1917.
