Justin Theroux Blesses Us with Esquire Thirst Trap

Justin Theroux esquire

-I feel like a shirtless Justin Theroux cradling his dog on the cover Esquire is just what the world needs right now, ya know? The whole interview is great but the part that’s making headlines is when he talks about his divorce from Jennifer Aniston: “I would say we’ve remained friends. We don’t talk every day, but we call each other…Like it or not, we didn’t have that dramatic split, and we love each other. I’m sincere when I say that I cherish our friendship. We can not be together and still bring each other joy and friendship. Also, she makes me laugh very, very hard. She’s a hilarious person. It would be a loss if we weren’t in contact, for me personally. And I’d like to think the same for her…I think that when you get good at relationships—and here I am, single—if you love the person the same way you loved them in the relationship, it would behoove you to love them the same way out of the relationship. Who wants to take a shit while you’re walking out the door?”

-After a month of speculation, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have officially announced their breakup: “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so.”

-According to Us Weekly, they really did try to salvage their relationship for their children’s sake.

Ben Affleck is looking really healthy and happy on the set of George Clooney’s new movie. Just in case JLo is wondering…

Cassie Randolph is reportedly “still processing” the news that Colton Underwood is gay. If I were here, I’d be still processing the fact that he allegedly stalked her and put a tracking device on her car. (Which he sort of addressed this week by saying “I made mistakes in the end of that relationship.”)

Morgan Wallen says “I’ve really worked on myself.” Good for him?

-Casting Pete Davidson to play Joey Ramone is quite the choice!

-Meanwhile, Pete Davidson and Phoebe Dynevor are now wearing matching necklaces.

Regé-Jean Page’s Bridgerton costar explained his departure from the series. Adjoa Andoh (who plays Lady Danbury) said “We’re following the overriding framework of Julia Quinn’s beautiful novels. There are eight Bridgerton children: one down, seven to go. Season two it’s Anthony Bridgerton so there you are. That’s the arc of the show.”

-The Queen has told members of the royal family to not wear military dress when attending the funeral of Prince Philip.

-Meanwhile, she’s reportedly trying to use strategic seating arrangements to keep Harry and William from fighting.

Demi Lovato is living with her best friend and loving life. “I was engaged to a dude and almost did that. And I was like, ‘That’s not the life for me.’ I want to have fun and I want to live with my friends. Let’s normalize that, you know.”

Italia Ricci has landed the lead in Netflix’s The Imperfects. I really like her and haven’t seen her in anything lately beyond Hallmark films, so this is good.

John Corbett says he will be in the Sex and the City revival in “quite a few” episodes, so I guess the future looks bright for Carrie and Aiden.

Mads Mikkelsen is joining Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge in Indiana Jones 5.

-Yikes. Vulture has a piece on how Amazon’s Them is “one of the most anti-Black pieces of pop-culture in recent years.”

-The reviews for Kate Winslet‘s new HBO show Mare of Easttown, which debuts this weekend, is getting rave reviews. I’m glad; it feels like we’re in a TV drought.

-Speaking of good-looking TV, here’s the trailer for Amazon Prime’s The Underground Railroad, from Barry Jenkins and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Colson Whitehead.

Celebs Praise Jennifer Lopez in Instyle

Jennifer-Lopez-InStyle

Jennifer Lopez’s Instyle cover features quotes about her from a ton of costars and celebrities (though, noticeably, nothing from A-Rod). Among the famous friends singing her praises are Charlize Theron (“To call her a triple threat doesn’t come close to describing her—she’s all of the threats!”), Michelle Obama (“What impresses me the most about her is her unwavering commitment to leverage those gifts and use her platform to give voice to the voiceless”), Matthew McConaughey (“Extremely deliberate, intentional, fully choreographed, and self-aware, she even knows how to make accidents look like accidents”), and — most hilariously — Ben Affleck (“Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?”).

-It’s Thandiwe, Not Thandie. Thandiwe Newton reclaimed her name in British Vogue, explaining the “w” was left out in her first acting credit and it stuck. “That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine.”

-I don’t know if I’m just getting used to the at-home fashions or if stars/stylists are really learning how to bring it, but the SAG Awards outfits were some of the best we’ve seen in ages.

-Last night’s SAG Awards marked the first time in its history that all four film acting categories went to actors of color. It also revealed how wide open the Oscar race really is. Is this what it looks like when stars can’t campaign? I love it!

-Rapper DMX overdosed on Friday night which triggered a heart attack, and the prognosis is not looking good.

Regé-Jean Page will not be returning for Bridgerton season two, saying he was only contracted for a one-season arc. I mean, he’s right, and I don’t think it’s as big of a deal as people seem to be making it out to be. The second season follows the second book, which means the main focus was always going to be on Anthony and Kate, so Simon and Daphne would be pushed to the background regardless. A couple of cameos would have been nice (especially in the Pall Mall scene), but I hope his absence doesn’t keep people away from the show. Not only will this season focus on the book series’ BEST couple, it will be led by an openly gay actor and a British-Indian actress — and that’s pretty effing boss.

Apple Martin roasts her mom Gwyneth Paltrow‘s morning routine in a new TikTok: “She just prances around the bathroom putting on her millions of Goop glow products…Then she gets to working making some more vagina eggs and vagina candles and vagina perfumes. Just everything vagina.”

-In a new video on her YouTube page, Hailey Bieber chats with a psychologist about the negative effects of social media on mental health.

-Reviews for HBO’s The Nevers suggest the show requires some benefit-of-the-doubt. It’ll be interesting to see what the next batch of episodes looks like since Joss Whedon left the show, because according to Variety, in its current state it “bears so many of his narrative and stylistic hallmarks that it might as well be playing Whedon Bingo.”

-One of the only shows I’m currently watching right now, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, has pretty much lost me. This week’s episode was especially rough.

Armie Hammer has departed The Minutes, a Broadway play which was originally set to debut last year and is now on track to resume production during the 2021-2022 season.

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Circle season 2.

Jamie Kennedy did not seem prepared to be grilled about his role in an anti-abortion movie.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost popped up on RuPaul’s Drag Race to offer advice.

-The final Black Widow trailer arrived this weekend.

-The biggest buzzed Marvel trailer right now is the new one that dropped today for the Loki series on Disney+, which is coming this summer. It looks really, really good.

 

Melissa McCarthy in Instyle

Melissa-McCarthy-InStyle

-I missed Melissa McCarthy‘s Instyle cover but I love the photoshoot. In the interview, she talks about anti-maskers (“I truly didn’t think people hated each other that much or hated the idea of people who they don’t even know”) and quarantining with her mom (“She stayed five months, which was amazing. I haven’t lived with my mom every day since I was 18 years old. To have that time with her again was unbelievable”).

Gayle King keeps breaking royal family news. She says: “Meghan [Markle] has documents to back up everything that she said on Oprah’s interview. Everything.”

-Also, Prince William reportedly signed Harry’s name to the 2020 ‘bullying’ denial without Harry’s approval.

Billie Eilish ditched her green and black hairstyle for a new blonde look. I love it.

Taraji P. Henson also debuted a bold new hair colour.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are still engaged, a source tells People.

Demi Lovato‘s YouTube doc is filled with sad revelations, including that she lost her virginity in a rape by a costar in her Disney days, and she was sexually assaulted by her drug dealer the night of her overdose.

-In happier Demi news, her next album will feature a Ariana Grande collab.

-Youtuber David Dobrik responded to allegations of sexual assault against Durte Dom, a member of his Vlog Squad, saying “consent is super, super important to me.” He added, “With people in my life that I don’t film with anymore, like Dom, I chose to distance myself, because I don’t align with some of the actions, and I don’t stand for any kind of misconduct. I’ve been really disappointed by some of my friends.”

Hailey Bieber opening a beer bottle with her teeth (to the disgust of Kendall Jenner) is kind of cute.

Kevin Feige shut down rumours that Chris Evans will reprise his role in Captain America in The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. I think WandaVision has taught us not to expect huge MCU cameos.

-Justified’s creative team is reunited to develop a Elmore Leonard novel for FX, and Timothy Olyphant is rumoured to be reprising his Raylan Givens character for it.

James McAvoy fans rejoice: you can watch the full episode of Celebrity Bake Off online.

-Even Michelle Obama couldn’t get Jimmy Kimmel’s daughter to eat her veggies.

Matthew McConaughey confirmed he’s considering a run for Texas governor. “I would be a fool not to… As I’ve said before and I’ll say again now, I have to decide for me what is my category where I can be most useful in life from here?”

-Here’s a blast from the past no one asked for: Garth Brooks says he’s reissuing his Chris Gaines album with bonus material.

Steven Yeun and Ali Wong will be co-starring together in a new limited series from Lee Sung Jin, who is behind FX’s Dave — a show I haven’t seen but people rave about.

-This is a great piece in Variety about how Hollywood is complicit in the violence against Asians in America: “Reducing Asians to flat, heavily accented caricatures is a favorite pastime in this country, and has been for decades.”

Bruce Lee‘s daughter also spoke out against the increasing violence, tweeting “This is where ‘kung flu’ leads. You think it’s a joke and that we shouldn’t be so serious about it. But then there are those who latch onto it with hatred and xenophobia and use it to fuel their fear and contempt until it explodes into heinous acts.”

-I just finished Allen v. Farrow and I don’t know how he comes back from this. The series takes the idea of separating the art from the artist and turns it on its head.

-The Synder cut of Justice League is getting good reviews. Mostly.

-The BBC is working on it’s own Britney Spears’ documentary.

Colin Farrell and Tye Sheridan star in the final Voyagers trailer.
