Anya Taylor-Joy’s Breakout Year

Anya Taylor-Joy vanity fair

Anya Taylor-Joy is on the cover of Vanity Fair and talks about how The Queen’s Gambit has propelled her career to stratospheric new heights, with projects lined up alongside Robert De Niro, Chris Rock, Margot Robbie, Christian Bale, Nicole Kidman and Ethan Hawke. “I think I’ll probably understand this year in about five years. I think that’s when it will probably hit.”

Jennifer Garner appeared on Hot Ones and she was at her most charming. “Ina Garten would be appalled by this behaviour.” “You really had me feeling kinda cocky, didn’t ya?”  “Up your butt, Sean!”

Prince Harry will become chief impact officer of BetterUp, a fast-growing coaching and mental health firm. This seems like an issue he’s really passionate about, so good for him. (The title makes me laugh though.)

Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Westminster Abbey, the cathedral where they were wed nearly 10 years ago, to check out its vaccination clinic.

Thomas Middleditch’s alleged behavior didn’t come as much of a surprise to his former Silicon Valley co-star Alice Wetterlund, who tweeted “Tried to warn you all about Middleditch but noooooo not everyone’s favorite tinyman who looks like he lives in a clock!”

Hailey and Justin Bieber were spotted soaking up the sun in Turks and Caicos.  I’ve never been more jealous.

-HBO has announced not one, not two, but three Game of Thrones spinoffs: Nymeria, Flea Bottom, and The Sea Snake. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of appetite there is for these, seeing as the reaction to its final season seems to have tarnished its legacy. With all the rewatches people have been doing during the pandemic, that one never comes up.

Kristen Davis‘ new thriller is no 1 on Netflix — for reasons no one can understand.

-Despite being spotted kissing a new guy, Lizzo insists she’s single.

-Disney shifted a bunch of movie dates/platforms, with Black Widow and Cruella getting a premium Disney+ launch alongside a theatrical release, while Pixar’s Luca will skip theaters entirely. Also, Death on the Nile moving to Feb 2022. I wonder if that’s because there’s not a big appetite for Armie Hammer movies right now?

Sean Young does not mince words in this interview. She praises Michael Douglas and Jim Carrey, but calls out James Woods, Warren Beatty, Charlie Sheen, Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott for toxic behaviour and getting her blacklisted.

-I didn’t see this coming: the villain of Shazam 2 will be played by Helen Mirren.

Oh no, Moby. No.

-Jeopardy! fans are NOT happy that Dr. Oz is guest hosting, and more than 500 past contestants have called for his removal.

-I didn’t realize I needed to see Kevin Bacon singing Backstreet Boys to farm animals, but I really really did.

-As he continues to lose deals, David Dobrik has released a second apology video and announced a social media break.

-Netflix is working on a gay holiday romcom starring Michael Urie, Philemon Chambers and Luke MacFarlane. Yes, please!

-Here’s the first trailer for HBO’s documentary on white supremacy, Exterminate All the Brutes.

-Here’s the trailer for HBO’s Victorian-era fantasy series The Nevers, which debuts April 11 and was created by Joss Whedon (who has since left). I didn’t know Demelza from Poldark is in this!

Report: Jennifer Lopez and ARod Split

-There’s nothing like a classic Friday afternoon news dump! According to Page Six, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have called off their two-year engagement.  (People and E! News is also reporting it.) There’s been rumours of trouble ever since that mess with Southern Charm’s Madison.

-The weekend is here! Celebrate by gazing on these glorious photos of Lady Gaga feeding Adam Driver.

Jennifer Garner just experienced a big life milestone at 48 – she got her ears pierced.

-This Sunday’s Grammy Awards are going to look like a real award show — meaning no Zoom.

Elton John says he’ll “hit someone” if Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t win a Grammy on Sunday night. I’ll help.

-Ottawa Public Health has been crushing it on Twitter during covid, and now Ryan Reynolds is chiming in.

-The Mail’s doubling down on their story about “doctored” headlines in the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview.

-In his Men’s Health cover story, Michael B. Jordan talks about those rumours that his romance with Lori Harvey is a PR stunt. “I can’t do anything about that, and I’ve just got to accept that and keep moving in my purpose. People that know me know my heart. But people that know me for my work…they know what I allow them to know. The fact that I’ve been so closed off about a lot of parts of my life was a personal choice. As I’ve gotten older and a little more mature and comfortable in my own skin, I’ve become less concerned about it.”

Yara Shahidi was honoured in Glamour UK’s Women of the Year Awards. I watched The Sun Is Also A Star last weekend and spent the whole movie mesmerized by her face.

-Sad there’s no new WandaVision dropping today? A new Disney+ documentary takes viewers inside the making of the show.

-I really like this point about criticisms of Wanda not facing consequences for what she did to Westview. How many fans are calling for Clint to be held accountable for his crimes? Or Tony? Or Bucky?

-Full reviews for Falcon and the Winter Solider are still under embargo, but critics have taken to Twitter to share their initial reactions to the first episode — and it’s all very positive. It sound like it’s going to be much more of a shoot ’em up adventure show than WandaVision was, but there are still some quiet character moments.

Sharon Osbourne is now apologizing for supporting Piers Morgan. “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.” Her initial meltdown in this clip was textbook white privilege: demanding a Black woman explain racism to her, centering the issue on herself, and weaponizing her tears.

-Ohhhh, people are so mad at Grey’s Anatomy after last night’s episode!

Rebekah Weatherspoon‘s Cowboys of California trilogy is being optioned for TV. Two years ago when I made a concerted effort to stop reading books with only white protags, it lead me to romance (’cause that’s really the only genre that is crushing it, diversity-wise) and this series was the first one I read all the way through.

Hilary Duff is pregnant and she wants the world to know about a symptom that’s called “lightning crotch.”

Peyton List and Lili Taylor star in the Paper Spiders trailer which got raves on the festival circuit.

Jennifer Garner Lives Up to Her ‘Queen of Nice’ Title

Jennifer Garner‘s profile in THR is full of goodness. She talks about a possible Alias revival (“Sign me up. I’ll grab Bradley [Cooper] by the scruff of his neck”), her ex-hubby Ben Affleck (“People are in awe of him. He’s done incredible things, he’s six-four, he’s … him, and [strangers] treat him with a kind of reverence”),  and why she allowed rare photos of their kids at her Walk of Fame ceremony in 2018 (“I don’t have two Oscars on my mantle, I’ve raised them. And I think every little kid has a dream that their mom will have a moment where people applaud her so that they can say, ‘That’s right, I knew it,’ and my kids got to have that and for that I’m grateful”). She also revealed that her daughter Violet was once kicked off a soccer team because the paparazzi caused too much of a distraction.

-It’s Jon Hamm‘s 50th birthday today. Let’s mark the occasion by staring at this glorious pic of him and Jon Bernthal, shall we?

Natalie Portman and Lupita Nyong’o are both taking their first major TV roles in AppleTV’s new limited series, Lady In the Lake.

Ryan Murphy set the record straight amid claims by Naya Rivera’s father that he broke a promise to set up a scholarship fund for her son.

-41,000 viewers filed complaints to ITV against Piers Morgan over his comments on Meghan Markle‘s mental health​ — and Meghan Markle was one of them.

-Meanwhile, Morgan tweeted, “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.”  (Sidenote: I didn’t realize until I saw this clip that his hatred of her seems to stem from the fact that they once went out for drinks and then she ghosted him — which makes him even more pathetic than I realized.)

CBS will re-air Oprah’s interview with Harry and Meghan on Friday night.

-The people behind Grey’s Anatomy keep making noises about this current season possibly being its last. “I’m planning a season and a finale that could function as either a season finale or a series finale,” showrunner Krista Vernoff told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m planning for both contingencies and it’s hard and it’s not ideal. It’s not where I wish we were.”

Chloe Sevigny had a secret wedding last year — and she wore black.

Paris Jackson, 22, defended her relationship with Emile Hirsch, 35, after comments about their age difference. When it comes to Hirsch, his age is the least of my concerns.

Winston Marshall is taking some time away from Mumford and Sons after praising a right-wing author.

Justin Bieber calls his latest music video “a love letter to the Toronto Maple Leafs.”

-I don’t watch American Horror Story, but I love that Macaulay Culkin will be in the new season because he deserves all the things.

-Here’s the trailer for HBO’s Tina Turner doc, which premieres March 27.
