Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge Covers Vogue

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Vogue
Ethan James Green, Vogue,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a delight in the new issue of Vogue. In the interview, she talks about cutting abortion law comments from her SNL monologue (“Because if you rant and rave, if you try and make a noise, you’ll be labelled noisy. You have to be careful of that. You have to find ways to protest”), her drink of choice (“The gimlet came into my life about a year and a half ago. I have really always wanted a cocktail that you order with total confidence; you know, that thing that you order and everyone’s like, Holy shit, she knows what she’s doing with her entire life”), and why you stop sharing as much with your friends as you get older (“I think the first half of your life, you’re trying to find out who you are, and you’re kind of knocking yourself against things, and testing things the whole time, to help kind of sculpt yourself. Then later, when you’ve got as close to sculpted as possible, you’re like, Don’t touch anything, in case it changes me”).

-Speaking of good magazine covers, Katie Holmes covers two this month (the December 2019 issues of Elle UK and SHAPE) and she refused to acknowledge the Tom Cruise years — even in style retrospectives.

-This is sad but not surprising: a new Britney Spears documentary features an interview with the salon owner who witnessed her infamous head shaving incident. The owner claims that Spears’s bodyguards were bribed by the paparazzi for her location and to continue to open the blinds of the salon, allowing a photographer hiding in the bushes to snap photos of their charge.

-This interview with TI about how he obsessively monitors the state of his 18-year-old daughter’s hymen is horrific — and really, really medically stupid. (Dr. Jennifer Gunter has a great thread about all the ways TI is wrong.) This doctor should be have his license revoked.

Jenny Slate‘s proposal story is very cute.

Whitney Houston‘s best friend Robyn Crawford wrote a new memoir, in which she talks about how they knew they had to suppress their relationship. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult…She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt.”

Jennifer Aniston revealed why she joined social media, saying “People are already in my panty drawers all the time. And I want them out of my panty drawers. But now I can decide which pair to show them.” And here I thought it was because she was contractually obligated to promote her new Apple show.

Drake is reportedly getting close to Kylie Jenner, according to People. (E!News‘ sources say it’s not serious which, yeah, we could have figured that one out on our own.)

Hilarie Burton shared a photo of her wedding day with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, which featured his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who officiated the ceremony.

-ABC is rebooting Revenge (a show I don’t think gets enough love) with a Latinx lead.

-Have some Stranger Things bloopers.

Chris Evans appears in the new episode of Billy on the Street! This is not a drill!

Madonna is Billboard’s Woman of the Year

madonna-billboard-woman-year

-Billboard named Madonna their Woman of the Year and in the interview, she talks about her charity work in Malawi, how “women betrayed us” by electing Trump, and the double standard of Hollywood sexism (“Age is only brought up with regard to women…When Leonardo is 60 years old, no one is going to talk about his relevance.”)

-Meanwhile, to celebrate Britney Spears‘ birthday, Madonna turned “Toxic” into an anti-Trump anthem.

-According to court docs, Brad Pitt will continue to have “therapeutic visitation” with his kids. He’ll also submit to random drug testing.

-Don’t make bets with Leonardo DiCaprio. Tom Hardy did, then he lost and has the bad tattoo to prove it.

-Not surprisingly, Netflix confirmed they’re working on season 2 of Luke Cage. They also announced plans to  double their number of original series in 2017, because clearly they’re trying to kill us.

-ABC’s Designated Survivor swaps showrunners – again. I dropped that show after episode two because it was good but not great (and there’s too much great TV to settle for just good), but the behind-the-scenes turmoil seems troubling.

-Speaking of good-but-not-great TV, I’m not sure if the reviews of the Westworld finale are making me want to catch up.  Has the internet ever guessed ALL the twists of a show so early before? Mysteries that we all figured out before they were revealed + characters I don’t care about = not the show for me.

Kelly Clarkson performed her Hamilton mixtape track on the Today Show this morning and it was way too early for me to sob like I did….

Lauren Graham was on Colbert and proved she knows how to hold a coffee cup.

-This is a good article on how Hollywood won’t let fictional female journalists be competent at their jobs. (It’s mostly focused on movies, but I’d add every female reporter on TV superhero shows to this list.)

Nick Offerman did an AMA on Reddit, and it ruled. He was asked, “What’s the most feminine thing that you do?” and he answered “win.” Bless him.

Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks and more took the #MannequinChallenge at the White House.

-My big takeaway from this Tom Ford interview is that he doesn’t let his 4-year-old son wear dinosaur shoes because they’re “tacky” — which means he would HATE my wardrobe.

Jessica Chastain, Chris Evans, Michael Cudlitz, Evan Rachel Wood, Ava DuVernay and more celebs railed against Last Tango in Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci after an old interview with him resurfaced, in which he admitted that he and Marlon Brando planned a violent sexual assault scene in that movie without warning the actress first. (The story got a little twisted this weekend, but it’s still terrible.) Bonus point to Anna Kendrick for pointing out that the actress revealed this years ago and was met with silence.

-I have yet to watch Mariah’s World,’ but reviews suggest that Mariah Carey makes zero attempts to come down to our humble level, which makes it great.

-Also, Mariah was all smiles when she showed up to a viewing party for her new E! reality series with backup dancer Bryan Tanaka.

-Well played, Megan Markle.

-The judge in Bill Cosby’s case denied his motion to dismiss because the comedian’s lawyers claim he is “legally blind.”

-Steven Yeun got married this weekend and his former Walking Dead co-stars came out in full force. (Except for Maggie. Is that weird?)

-Speaking of weddings sparking TV reunions, mostof the Glee cast reunited for Becca Tobin’s wedding.

Jensen Ackles and his wife had twins, and named them Arrow and Zeppelin! I know he’s good buds with Stephen Amell, but that seems extreme.

Jimmy Kimmel will host the 2017 Oscars. He was fine at the Emmys so ok, I guess?

-Ok, so the first trailer for Tom Cruise’s The Mommy is kind of a nonsensical mess, but guys, look how good Jake Johnson looks!

-Marvel knew exactly what we wanted when they released this new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer: more Baby Groot!

Colton Haynes Opens Up in Out

colton-haynes-out-cover

-This Colton Haynes profile in Out is kind of heartbreaking. He had a rough childhood (he was told his dad killed himself because he found out he was gay), and is anxiety is so bad that he suffered panic-induced vomiting on set.  Hope he’s getting better; I love that kid.

-Well, well, well. Turns out The Rock really wasn’t talking about Scott Eastwood with that “candy ass” comment. TMZ reports he was referring to Vin Diesel and the pair were forced into an onset meeting yesterday to try to solve their issues. (I never doubted ONTD commenters, no matter who was tweet-disagreeing with me about it yesterday).

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green welcomed baby No. 3, a boy they’ve named…um… Journey River. So, that happened.

Kirsten Dunst is savage and I love it.

-Crazy Ex Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom is the best. She rewrote her show’s casting notices for the female gaze, and shattered the illusion of red carpet glamour.

-For the first time in years, we won’t be gifted with a Taylor Swift album this October.

Jennifer Lopez just signed on to a new HBO movie about drug lord Griseldo Blanco that’s being co-executive produced by…Alex Pettyfer? Whaaa?

-The all-female Ocean’s 8 will likely include Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling and Rihanna. How come they’re stuck with a reboot? Surely someone could write something amazing for a cast like that.

-Speaking of Cate, her face is front and centre in the new Massive Attack video.

-Don’t tell me that Kim Kardashian doesn’t have a social media strategy.

-I actually kind of like Meryl Streep’s dress here, and I never like Meryl Streep’s dress!

-What do you think the press tour for Wonder is going to be like once Julia Roberts realizes lil’ Jacob Tremblay is getting all the attention? ::grabby hands::

-Now that season two of UnREAL has wrapped, creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro seems to be trying to walk back her comments in that New Yorker profile.

-This Vulture interview with Matthew Goode on The Wine Show left me swoony (more so than usual).  The fact that he and Matthew Rhys bonded on the set of Death Comes to Pemberley? Kill me.

-Congrats to Supernatural’s Jensen Ackles and his wife, who are expecting twins.

-What happens with the heads of 5 TV networks get together? You get some good/weird tidbits, including Netflix’s chief revealing that the two Adam Sandler movies premiered at No. 1 in every single territory of Netflix around the world.

-Damn right the DC/CW-verse crossover episode should be a musical.

-Oh god. They really went ahead and made a Bad Santa 2.

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner make first contact with aliens in the Arrival trailer.
