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.

Meghan Markle’s Suits Costars Are Living the Dream

-Royal wedding fever is in full swing. I love this interview with Meghan Markle’s Suits costars, who look like they can’t actually believe they’re in London for the wedding.

Jeffrey Tambor happily walked the red carpet with his happy costars at the Arrested Development premiere. Ok.

-Dave Matthews Band’s longtime violinist Boyd Tinsley has denied sexual misconduct allegations by his former Crystal Garden bandmate James Frost-Winn. Winn says he made unwanted sexual advances and comments toward him, and spent years “grooming” him.

-I haven’t seen Deadpool 2 yet but it’s probably not a great sign that the writers are having to defend their treatment of the female characters.

-Hmmm. Roseanne’s co-showrunner Whitney Cummings has left the show.

-I’m intrigued by Jennifer Aniston‘s new Netflix series, in which she’ll play the first female president, with Tig Notaro playing her wife.

-Huh. Netflix left Cannes almost empty-handed as their deals got turned down by multiple filmmakers, despite trying to throw wads of money at them.

Jimmy Fallon played “What’s Behind Me?” with Tina Fey, which somehow involved recreating the Ghost pottery scene.

SZA canoodles with Donald Glover in her new music video for “Garden (Say It Like Dat).”

Jack Osbourne‘s wife has filed for divorce after six years of marriage.

Halle Berry looks great but she likes kettle bells way more than I do.

Timothée Chalamet is coming for that Oscar in the Beautiful Boy trailer, costarring Steve Carrell.

Shock and Awe is the latest Oscar-baiting newspaper drama. This one stars Woody Harrelson and James Marsden as reporters chasing down a scoop that the Bush administration prematurely decided to go to war.

Melissa McCarthy stars in The Happytime Murders, an upcoming hard R-rated murder mystery set in a world where humans and puppets co-exist. Here’s the profane trailer:

Frances McDormand Dances Into Our Hearts

-Vogue shot artsy videos of the stars dancing around an exhibit room during the MET gala. The good ones are RihannaCardi BNicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.  The very best one is Frances McDormand dancing to Basement JaxxShe really did look like she was having the night of her life. 

Katy Perry flew Kim Kardashian’s press on nails to LA for the MET gala. That’s true friendship.

-At last night’s MET Gala, the theme was Catholicism and the outfits were nuts. I adored Lena Waithe in a giant rainbow capeZendaya‘s take on Joan of Arc, and Blake Lively‘s burgundy number. But no one made me happier than Chadwick Boseman with hair sparkles, and  Frances McDormand  in Valentino.

-I’m really bummed that Scarlett Johansson broke the A-lister embargo and wore Marchesa, despite the Weinstein connection. She says their dresses make women feel “confident.”

Jay-Z, Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston and more are demanding money from the Weinstein Company.

-Congrats to Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, who had a baby boy.

-I don’t even watch Lethal Weapon, but what’s going on with that show is crazy. Clayne Crawford has been fired as the lead of the Fox drama as producers are scrambling to recast the role, and renewal is supposed to hinge on who they cast. Multiple actors have already passed, according to THR.

-All of the original Avengers got matching tattoos, except for Mark Ruffalo, who opted out. (But Chris Evans has a plan to get him “blackout drunk.“)

-The R. Kelly house continues to crumble before our eyes. Two new accusers appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to detail sexual the harrasment they faced: “You weren’t free to walk throughout the house…We were required to call him Daddy.”

-This makes my heart sad: Colton Haynes has filed for divorce from Jeff Leatham after just six months of marriage. Rumours started circulating this weekend after he released a new song about a cheater, and a blind item began circulating. Haynes shut down speculation that Leatham cheated on Twitter, but did not deny the split. Poor guy; he just lost his mother, too.

Kristen Stewart is looking at Cate Blanchett exactly how I would.

-Here are all the references in the new Childish Gambino music video you probably missed. (I know I did.)

-I can’t stop watching this video of Mariah Carey putting makeup on a stranger.

-Why the hell did The Hollywood Reporter gives Jeffrey Tambor and his sexual harassment allegations a sympathetic, soft-focus profile?  “I did raise my voice at times, I was moody at times, there were times when I was tactless…But as for the other stuff, absolutely not.”

-Meanwhile, the cast wants extra compensation for Netflix’s recut episodes.

-Cancel Bear (who is usually spot on about these things) posted his TV renewal predictions for networks. On Fox, he thinks Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are toast, Kevin will no longer be saving the world on ABC but Quantico should get a pass, on NBC all their new comedies and Timeless are likely done, while almost every show on CBS and CW are safe (minus CW’s Life Sentence and Valour, which were both just cut).

Ta-Nehisi Coates on Kanye West is the one thing you need to read this week if you haven’t already.

-There have been some very, very good takes about what went down at FanCon. Today’s Vulture piece, which failed to interview the BGN writers who quit or the vendors affected, is not one of them.

-Ryan Reynolds using Canada to promote Deadpool 2 in Europe is a good time.

Cher is a scene-stealer in the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again trailer.
