Say a Little Prayer for EW’s My Best Friend’s Wedding Reunion

My Best Friends Wedding reunion EW

-I gave up on my EW subscription last year because I never had time to read it (plus it was weirdly expensive?) but I’ll definitely be picking up the print edition of their romcom issue. Every article they’ve released from it so far has been great, but the My Best Friend’s Wedding cover seals the deal. I recently rewatched it and it’s even more problematic than I remember (Kimmy’s a child! Julianne’s a monster!) but this oral history is very fun. I really hope this marks the start of Cameron Diaz’s un-retirement cause I missed her.

-It’s a big day in covers. Newlyweds Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber landed on the March issue of Vogue.  I hate that he’s not wearing a shirt, but it’s completely expected at this point. They talk about working on their marriage (“We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go”), reflect on his past (“my mom was depressed a lot of my life and my dad has anger issues. Stuff that they passed on that I’m kind of mad they gave me”), and talk about Hailey’s stabilizing influence.

-Meanwhile, like many others I will never read about Hailey without thinking of that bit in Caity Weaver’s GQ Bieber profile in which she’s just sitting in his hotel room, doing nothing and waiting for him.

Michelle Rodriguez says Liam Neeson can’t be racist because of how he passionately frenched Viola Davis in Widows. Um, what now?

-Hollywood is now developing movies based on Reddit threads.

-It looks like Disney+ is shaping up to be a true Netflix competitor, with non-Disney shows streaming, too.

Chris Pratt seems confident that Disney will use James Gunn’s script for Guardians 3.

Steve Buscemi has responded to that viral video of Jennifer Lawrence with his face: “It makes me sad.”

-Scrubs star Sam Lloyd (who played Ted the lawyer) hit his fundraising goal in two days after revealing lung & brain cancer diagnosis.

Seth Meyers got drunk with the Barefoot Contessa. He’s living my dream!!

Ariana Grande clarified why she dropped out of the Grammys. She called out the show’s producer Ken Ehrlich for “lying about me” when he told the Associated Press that she “felt it was too late for her to pull something together.” Grande tweeted, “I can pull together a performance over night and you know that, Ken. It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend.”

-Ariana is all about clearing up rumours today. She’s denying a feud with Nicki Minaj.

Jennifer Garner talked about being “surrounded by paparazzi” while being married to Ben Affleck.

Naya Rivera has spoken out about those Lea Michele feud rumours on the Glee set: “I don’t think there was any beef.”

Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba have a pillow fight in the LA’s Finest trailer.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Search for Happiness

Billy Eichner hit the street with Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda, and the whole video is happy-making. Billy’s face when he says “you make Garfield fan art?!” kills me in every way.

Emma Watson shared a photo from the Little Women set and dammit if it didn’t make me a little tingly.

Julie Andrews‘ granddaughter claims she had an affair with Dax Shepard in 2009 — two years after he started dating Kristen Bell. He is disputing how old the photos she released really are, and pointed out that she’s previously sold stories to the tabs about Matthew Perry, Jack Osbourne and Kid Rock.

Taylor Swift is using facial recognition software to detect stalkers at her concert like she’s in CSI or something, and I effing love this.

-The headline of NYT’s new profileEllen Degeneres Is Not As Nice As You Think” made me think they were diving into some of the blind items about her, but it turns out they’re just being cheeky.

-Meanwhile, I really like this article on how blind items have become more influential during the #MeToo movement and can kick off blockbuster investigations.

Cybil Shepherd says that she once declined Les Moovnes advances — and her show was promptly canceled.

Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan broke up after nearly a year together. This would probably have more impact if I knew they were dating.

Jason Momoa performed a Haka dance at the Aquaman premiere and it was pretty damn glorious.

-Grey, meet Grey. Jennifer Grey is coming to Grey’s Anatomy in a mysterious new role.

Lenny Kravitz says it’s “wonderful” that his daughter ended up working with his ex Nicole Kidman on Big Little Lies. “Zoe hadn’t seen Nicole since she was younger, and so it was beautiful that they got to know each other as adults and make this great show together.”

Jennifer Garner and J.J. Abrams will reunite for a one-hour drama coming to Apple, joining their massive list of projects with huge stars and no public plan about distribution.

-FX released its annual report about scripted TV, and tallied a record 495 original scripted streaming, cable, and broadcast series were released in 2018.

-I adore this story about how 10 Things I Hate About You was written largely through snail mail.

-Whoo boy. This thread does not make me want to see Clint Eastwood‘s new movie The Mule anytime soon.

-I wouldn’t be surprised if Marvel didn’t relinquish the reigns of their big action set pieces — female director or not.

Matthias Schoenaerts stars in the trailer for The Mustang as a violent criminal who is given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program involving the training of wild mustangs. I’ll watch that guy in anything so why not?

Taraji P. Henson Stands Up For Herself

taraji-p-henson-instyle

Taraji P. Henson looks amazing on the cover of InStyle. (The subscribers’ cover is even better.) In the interview, she says execs tried to convince her that she wouldn’t do well internationally: “Hollywood executives would tell me that I don’t have fans all the way over there… Then we go to Paris, and it’s standing room only in a room with 1,500 seats. I cried…You can’t let people tell you shit.” (I really wish they would have asked her about whatever the hell happened to torpedo the marketing campaign for Proud Mary. That movie was inexplicably, unforgivably, intentionally buried.)

-New court documents revealed that Kesha and Lady Gaga exchanged text messages about how “mean” Katy Perry was being. Gaga then took to Twitter to explain: “These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.”

Ariana Grande pays homage to Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, 13 Going on 30, and Bring It On in her new video for “thank u, next.” (Bless Mark Ruffalo for saying he’s celebrating with Razzles.)

-Grande’s new video is overshadowing Miley Cyrus’ latest, which tackles heavy issues like gun control and police brutality.

-On Watch What Happens Live, Megan Fox admitted to hooking up with Transformers costar Shia LaBeouf.

-People who weren’t paying attention seemed surprised that Netflix cancelled Daredevil, but seeing what happened with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, it’s clear they’re getting out of the Marvel business. Everyone is expecting the new seasons of Jessica Jones and Punisher will be their last. Don’t expect them to move over to Disney’s new streaming service, either. And even if Marvel is hinting that we’ll still see more Daredevil in the future, it’s likely it will be a whole new take.

Jennifer Garner toasted Bradley Cooper by reminding him of all his middling TV appearances — including on Alias. (“It wasn’t until I heard him speaking French to a background artist on set one day that I went ‘wait a minute, is Bradley handsome?!'”)

-I love that Grownish is recreating the title credits from A Different World.

-Facebook Watch has added Buffy, Angel and Firefly to their streaming service. Dammit, that’s smart.

Connie Britton is on a new TV show that’s doing well, and I don’t have time to watch it. That’s where we are in this era of peak TV.

-Is Prince Charles‘ birthday the real reason behind all the negative stories coming out about Prince Harry and Prince William lately?

-Yikes. Prince Andrew has been linked to the Jeffrey Epstein scandal involving underage girls.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are still at it.

-I really want to see The Favourite, but calling it a prequel to Phantom Thread does not to it any favours if you ask me.

Roma will be streaming on Netflix soon, but if you’re in one of the few cities where it’s getting a theatrical release, you should see it on the big screen. Critics are falling over themselves to praise this one.

Diane Kruger, Steve Carell and Eiza González star in the new Welcome to Marwen trailer.
