Olivia Colman Rules in Vogue

olivia-colman-crown-vogue-cover

-Yass, queen! Olivia Colman is promoting her regal turn on Netflix’s The Crown with a Vogue cover spread, and the interview is wonderful. (“Over the years, pounds have gone on, and my body has changed; I’ve had children. If someone doesn’t like me because of the size of my bum, they can f**k off. Because I’m quite a nice person to be with, actually.”) Her 73 Questions video is also as delightful as you’d expect.

-In a new interview with Hello!, Angelina Jolie says she has a new perspective on motherhood now that her kids are older: “When your children are little you feel more ‘mommy’. When they are teenagers you start to remember yourself as a teenager. You see them going to punk clubs and you wonder why you can’t go. I’m in this fun moment where I’m rediscovering myself.”

-Meanwhile, at his university in South Korea, Maddox was approached by paparazzi and asked about whether dad Brad Pitt planned to visit him at school. “I don’t know about that, what’s happening. Whatever happens, happens.”

Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Garner is the wholesome Hollywood friendship that the world needs right now.

-Also, Kelly kicks off every episode by doing a cover, and her version of “Bad Romance” is a good time.

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are launching a podcast about The Office for all your nostalgia needs.

Drake texted Bianca Andreescu after she mentioned him in a press conference — and she then read his texts to the media. I love her so hard.

-A bunch of celebrities made a video to thank Gary Sinise for his charity work with veterans and his reaction is so sweet.

-People are loving how Rihanna staged her lingerie fashion show at NYFW.

Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, the New York Times reporters who exposed Harvey Weinstein‘s alleged sexual misconduct, say “Gwyneth Paltrow was actually one of the first people to get on the phone … she was determined to help this investigation.”

-I’m bummed that Kathryn Hahn‘s new HBO limited series (which debuted at TIFF) isn’t getting great reviews. But very happy that Rosario Dawson‘s Briarpatch (which also screened 2 episodes at TIFF) is going over better.

-Last night’s TIFF audiences gave Renée Zellweger a rapturous, two-minute standing ovation at the screening of the Judy Garland biopic Judy.

-Speaking of movies that sparked with the TIFF crowd, Hustlers is predicted to open big this weekend.

Joaquin Phoenix stormed off the Joker set a lot, according to the director. What is it with actors being jerks on Batman-y sets (Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Phoenix)? And the irony that this happens on a movie which critics say is about toxic masculinity is really something…

-I agree with this piece on how this might be the best fall TV season in years. There are at least three new network shows that I’m going to give a chance (Stumptown, Emergence and Nancy Drew) — which is three more than last year.

-I’ve never seen Downton Abbey, but critics are digging the movie.

-This article on influencer Caroline Calloway from her former friend/ghostwriter has the internet buzzing.

Imogen Poots is stalked by a stranger during their Christmas break in the Black Christmas trailer.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.

The Angel Cast Reunites For EW

Angel reunion EW

-I may have actually squealed out loud when I saw EW’s new cover in honour of Angel’s 20th anniversary. The story and video roundtable are both great — though it’s a little weird that they totally gloss over Glenn Quinn‘s death. And they completely ignore how terrible Joss Whedon treated Charisma Carpenter when she told him she was pregnant, and how she agreed to go back for the 100th episode only if they promised not to kill off her character — only to find out on the day of the shoot that they were killing her off.

Claire Danes interviewed her My So-Called Life costar Wilson Cruz for Variety’s Pride issue. “We had a time.” *sob*

Greg Berlanti talks about the old casting practices in Hollywood: “There were certain execs who would say, ‘Does this actor seem a little soft?’ They would use code words, but I knew what they meant because I was a gay person.”

-An Easy A spinoff is in the works. YAY!! (I reserve the right to rescind that yay if Emma Stone and Penn Badgley aren’t in it.)

-Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis set the record straight on their split rumors with a funny IG video.

According to The BlastDrake paid $350,000 to Instagram model to settle claim that the rapper forced her to perform ‘fetish’ oral sex that involved spitting into a measuring cup.

-This interview with Pamela Adlon about how she approached the last season of Better Things is so good.

-Cancel your plans! Seth Meyers will air a day drinking segment with Rihanna on tonight’s show!

-Speaking of Seth, this is a really great interview with him.

Michael Sheen sharing Good Omens fanfic and defending it is a mood.

-Killing Eve and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge talks about being hired to add some depth and humor to the script for the new James Bond film. “The important thing is that the film treats women properly. He doesn’t have to.”

-This is a super cute video of Jennifer Garner doing charity work. I listened to her episode on the David Tennant podcast, and her work with Save the Children sounds like a fulltime job when she’s not filming, not the typical celebrity showboating.

-I really related to this article about “cord-clingers” — people who are getting more out of a cable subscription than the various streaming services.

Kevin Sorbo being called out by his female costars on Twitter is glorious.

-I’m seeing Celeste Barber this weekend and I. Can’t. Wait.

Tiffany Haddish, Eric Andre and Lil Rel Howery‘s new movie Bad Trip features pranks against real people. I hate this hidden camera stuff so much, I couldn’t even make it all the way through this.

-The new Lion King promo features Beyoncé and Donald Glover singing “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.”

-The trailer for Midsommer, Ari Aster‘s followup to Hereditary, looks creep af.
