Henry Cavill posted a sweet picture with girlfriend Natalie Viscuso — and the internet immediately uncovered an old episode of My Super Sweet 16 that she appeared in.

-She reportedly flew to UK to be with him earlier this year while he was filming the second season of The Witcher. Getting on an airplane right now must mean it’s love.

-Congrats to Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song, who welcomed their first child together – a baby boy named after his late sister, Dakota.

According to his lawyerHarvey Weinstein is nearly blind, experiencing cardiac issues and has had four teeth removed.

-The Talk returned today for its first episode in a month, and Sheryl Underwood talked about her heated exchange with Sharon Osbourne that led to the hiatus. “I feel like I’ve been in, like, PTSD because it was a trauma, and I feel like I want to get past this because I really wanted to get back to work with my friends and my colleagues and the crew … but I also wanted to get back to the audience,” she said. “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also I knew I had to be an example for others to follow because I didn’t want to perceived as the angry black woman, and that really scared me.”

Lucy Liu has joined the Shazam sequel as the sister of Helen Mirren’s villainous character. How is this movie pulling a cast like this??

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams is still locked in that brutal custody battle. A judge has ordered them to go to “high conflict parenting class.”

Kanye West’s lawyers responded to Kim Kardashian‘s divorcing filing, agreeing with her that they should have joint custody of their four children and neither of them need spousal support.

This is a good piece on how celebrity bloggers Lainey Gossip and Perez Hilton have been reckoning with the awful stuff they wrote in the 2000s — and how they’re taking radically different paths in their apologies.

Daniel Dae Kim opened up to Vulture about his fight for fair pay on Hawaii Five-0, and whether he felt his costars were allies. “I think any time you have an ensemble of actors, everyone’s objectives are unique and individual. So it’s hard for me to collectively say whether they were allies in this. And I do know that the way things got spun by the end changed my relationships with them.”

-Thunder Force was really, really not good — but this Jodie Foster bit made me laugh.

Vanessa Carlton revealed she wrote “A Thousand Miles” abpout a “famous actor” who went to Juilliard — and her fans have guesses.

-Also going Instagram official this weekend: Kasey Musgraves.

-I love the dress Anna Kendrick wore to the BAFTAs this weekend.

-Minari’s Youn Yuh-jung won best supporting actor and said she was happy to be recognized by British people because they’re “known as very snobbish people.” God, I love her with my whole heart.

-I gave up on Shameless years ago, but fans seem to be disappointed by last night’s series finale. Which is the exact opposite reaction that the Wynonna Earp finale seems to have garnered.

-The Friends reunion special finished filming this weekend.

Sebastian Stan promoted his new movie by posting a pic of his butt. Works for me!

Uzo Aduba is leading HBO’s In Treatment revival, which just got a new trailer and a May 23 premiere date.

 

Oprah Talks Plans and Planes

oprah-thr-cover

Oprah Winfrey covers the latest THR and her interview is delicious. She reveals that an annoying fan at an airport convinced her to buy a private plane (“She says, ‘Cause on TV you always giving people hugs. I want a hug.’ So I stood up and I gave her a hug and then I went to the phone and called my lawyer and I said, ‘I’m going to do it, I’m going to get the plane. This is going to be my last time waiting four hours in the Chicago O’Hare Airport'”) and was pretty blunt about her time at 60 Minutes and CBS (“How should I say this? Never a good thing when I have to practice saying my name and have to be told that I have too much emotion in my name…They would say, ‘All right, you need to flatten out your voice, there’s too much emotion in your voice.’ So I was working on pulling myself down and flattening out my personality — which, for me, is actually not such a good thing”). Imagine hiring Oprah and then not letting her be Oprah?!?

-Feast your eyes on Keanu Reeves in the new Saint Laurent campaign.

-It somehow escaped my attention that Moby and Natalie Portman used to date but this excerpt about it from his book is great.

Jesse Williams‘ messy divorce continues its messiness. He’s asking a judge to deny his ex’s motion that he pay $200k for her legal bills.

-Variety has released some of the salaries Hollywood movie stars will make on their latest projects. Netflix is pushing up the paydays with Ryan Reynolds getting $27M for Six Underground, and Will Smith getting $35M for Bright 2. For studio films, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gal Gadot and Brad Pitt are all reportedly raking in upwards of $10 million for their latest flicks.

-It looks like Randall Emmett has finally paid 50 Cent the $1M he was owed because the Instagram posts about it are now deleted, depriving us of the best clapbacks of all time.

-Buckingham Palace released a statement shutting down the Baby Sussex name speculation.

-I’m loving all the celebrity guests on this season’s Gay of Thrones. This week’s is Gabrielle Union!

-The Game of Thrones cinematographer is defending the latest episode, telling TMZ “I know it wasn’t too dark because I shot it” and Wired “people don’t know how to tune their TVs properly.” That may be true (and I’ve certainly seen lots of spirited and technical defenses of him), but at a certain point — don’t you have to understand the limitations of the technology that most people are going to consume it on and work around that? If the majority people can’t see the thing they were supposed to see, you pooched it.  Though I still maintain that the editing was worse than the cinematography. Like that scene with Sansa and Tyrion when he raises their clasped hands and kisses hers I went, “Wait, they were holding hands? When did that happen? Show that!” And then they moved from their spot in the crypt and did…something. Did Sansa battle some wights with that dagger? Or did they just reposition?

-Empire was just renewed — but Jussie Smollet‘s future on the show remains in limbo. Said Fox in a statement: “By mutual agreement, the studio has negotiated an extension to Jussie Smollett’s option for season six, but at this time there are no plans for the character of Jamal to return to Empire.”

-Well, this is a very worrying and depressing tweet about Britney Spears from a director.

-When Netflix aired 13 Reasons Why, experts warned that it could to cause an increase in suicides especially among adolescents. A news study finds that’s exactly what happened.

-No gonna lie; Zac Efron’s abs freak me out.

Taylor Kitsch, Sienna Miller and Chadwick Boseman star in the new trailer for 21 Bridges.

NBC Fires Matt Lauer Over Alleged Sexual Misconduct

-Just days after receiving a complaint on Monday, NBC fired the Today Show’s Matt Lauer early this morning. A source revealed to Page Six that Lauer allegedly “sexually assaulted” a female staffer during the Olympics this past summer in Rio. Multiple journalists had been digging into his behavior for months, and Variety dropped their big story about it this afternoon. It’s full of disgusting tidbits, including reports he once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present with a note about how he wanted to use it on her, summoned another female to his office and dropped his pants, and had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up.

-Everyone is wondering what Ann Curry is thinking today. (I’ll never forget a quote she had around the time she left the Today Show because of their “lack of chemistry”: “Chemistry, in television history, generally means the man does not want to work with the woman. It’s an excuse generally used by men in positions of power to say, ‘The woman doesn’t work.'”)

-Meanwhile, here are 12 notorious Matt Lauer stories.

-It took 19 long days since the initial Variety report broke, but Andrew Kreisberg has  finally been fired from Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, CW Seed’s Vixen and lost his overall deal with the studio. If they waited until the crossover ended last night before announcing it though, that’s gross.

-And now Geoffrey Rush is being accused of inappropriate behaviour? Goddamit.

-In a new interview, Ridley Scott talks about cutting Kevin Spacey from his film a month before its release. ‘Sometimes you need to lay down the law.’

-In happier news, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cover the new issue of People.

-There are some pretty great Actors on Actors clips that came out today from Variety, including Gal Gadot interviewing Kumail Nanjiani, and Jake Gyllenhaal interviewing Margot Robbie. (I weirdly love that Jake’s opening question is “do you use an electronic toothbrush?”)

-The X Files creator is responding to criticism about the last season. Well, I guess it’s probably a good that that they recognize it mostly sucked…

-As someone who’s already seen Call Me By Your Name, the fact that they had to digitally remove Armie Hammer‘s balls from various scenes doesn’t surprise me. Those shorts were SHORT.

-Speaking of Call Me By Your Name, this profile on Timothée Chalamet is delightful.  I like that he’s a self-admitted Frank Ocean superfan.

-Speaking of superfans, a starstruck Keanu Reeves met his hero Sonny Chiba on Japanese TV and they fangirled all  over each other.

Nicki Minaj and Jesse Williams star in a new H&M mini-holiday movie and it’s better than anything I’ve watched on the Hallmark Channel all year.

Jessie Williams is everywhere! He’ll also star in Demi Lovato’s new music video, which drops on Friday.

Jay-Z sat down with The New York Times for a discussion on race, rap, politics and marriage.

Aaron Sorkin revealed that he has standing offer from NBC to reboot The West Wing, which he considers on occasion. This seemed like a really bad idea — until he mentioned that he wants Sterling K Brown to play the president. DO IT!

-Yikes. It’s probably not a good sign that Bryan Fuller is no longer going to be American Gods’ showrunner.

-Jessica Jones’ Krysten Ritter wrote a novel and it’s getting surprisingly good reviews.

-The Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped this morning. Here are all the Easter eggs.
