-There were some blind items floating around a while ago that I didn’t want to believe, but here we are: Fergie and Josh Duhamel released a statement saying “with absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year.”

-Don’t tell me celebrities can’t lock their sh*t down when they really want to. Selena Gomez just revealed she’s been quiet this summer because she had a kidney transplant(!). Her pal and donor Francia Raisa made a touching post about the experience, saying “I am beyond grateful that God would trust me with something that not only saved a life, but changed mine in the process.”

-God bless Jennifer Garner for posting this video of her high on novocaine and crying about Hamilton songs. Best “David After Dentist” sequel ever.

Jessica Biel entered the Ellen Show by doing the Dirty Dancing routine (complete with a perfectly executed lift) and I’ve never liked her more.

-Oh wait — Jessica‘s restaurant might have withheld tips from their servers. And I’m back!

-The new promo for The Good Place has clips from the first season and now I’m wondering how I missed the big twist. In retrospect, it was so obvious! God, I love that show.

Zach Braff is the new illegal face of penis enhancement pills in Ukraine, and it doesn’t seem to bother him at all.

-Delete your fanfic! Zayn Malik just revealed that he and Harry Styles weren’t actually BFFs at all. “To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band. So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him when I left. And I haven’t [had one] to be honest.”

-Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are breeding again.

Mandy Moore‘s This Is Us costars spoiled her engagement news. And not even her big costars. Just the guys who play Toby and Miguel. Tsk tsk.

Reese Witherspoon no longer sounds super hopeful that a second season of Big Little Lies will happen and as much as I loved that show, I’m totally ok with that.

-Sounds like Heidi Klum and her boyfriend Vito Schnabel are dunzo. (But “taking time apart right now” is a nice spin.)

-Man, I love that there are actual think pieces being written about why Arrow shouldn’t do a BLM episode.

-You know movieland is bleak when even Jim Carrey is heading to TV.

-According to Page Six, Drake was spotted in his hometown of Toronto on Monday night “looking cozy” with The Florida Project’s Bria Vinaite. I don’t believe it.  Yeah, they posed for a pic together but he was supposedly spotted with a model. And from what I saw of Bria at her movie’s premiere, he couldn’t handle her.

-I really hope the HBO exec is lying when he says he knows who’s going to end up on the Iron Throne on GoT. Isn’t the whole point of the show about breaking the wheel?!

-You know what I’m weirdly good at? Axe throwing. I’ve done it three times now and I’m at the point where an axe is gonna be the first thing I grab when the zombie apocalypse strikes. You know who’s not so good at axe throwing? Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence plays a ballerina who becomes a Russian assassin after suffering from a career-altering injury in the Red Sparrow trailer. So basically, it’s the Black Widow standalone movie we all wanted, without the Marvel rights?

 

Miley Cyrus Praises Dolly Parton in Cosmo

miley-cyrus-cosmo

Miley Cyrus looks very good on the cover of Cosmo, in which she talks about the benefits of having Dolly Parton as a godmother (“Having access to her closet!”) and her worst red carpet looks (“Pretty much 2008-2013. The Grammys were rough and tough for me. Yoikes!”). We also learned that Miley Cyrus is the type of person to use the word “yoikes.”

-We were gifted with another exceptional PR stroke from Jennifer Garner today. I mean, just look at those photos of her with Ben Affleck’s mom. They’re sharing sunglasses, laughing, leaning on each other and generally radiating genuine affection. Meanwhile, Ben is getting photographed in liquor stores by fans on his vacation with his new girlfriend in Maine. You know how people like Shonda Rhimes and Aaron Sorkin are hosting those Masterclass videos on screenwriting? I need Garner to host one on press manipulation and branding.

-Believe it or not, Jessica Biel is getting rave reviews for her new TV show, with Paste calling it her “Breaking Bad moment.” It debuts tonight  on the USA Network, and will air in Canada on Showcase later this fall.

Jessica Williams told a great story on Colbert about how she and J.K. Rowling became friends after the author DM’d her.

-The FBI is now investigating that HBO hack, which could be brutal as it involved “seven times the amount of data stolen in the Sony hack.”

-In her Harper’s Bazaar UK cover story, Kristen Stewart talks about her sexuality and says she’s open to dating men in the future — which she explains with a grilled cheese metaphor. (“Some people aren’t like that. Some people know that they like grilled cheese and they’ll eat it every day for the rest of their lives. I want to try everything. If I have grilled cheese once I’m like, ‘That was cool, what’s next?'”)

Jeremy Renner opened up about his friendship with late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell on Howard Stern’s radio show.

Billie Lourd‘s interview with Sarah Paulson in Town and Country is worth a read.

-On Watch What Happens Live, James Van Der Beek admitted he was surprised when Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise, said he still speaks to Busy Phillips and Joshua Jackson, and revealed he was glad Joey ended up with Pacey instead of Dawson. You and the rest of the world, bud.

-I love that Wet Hot American Summer is using “nose job” to explain away how Adam Scott took over Bradley Cooper‘s role. (Also, this clip gave me major Ben/Leslie feels.)

Rihanna has finally announced an official launch date for Fenty Beauty, her cosmetics line that Sephora will carry.

-LucasFilm has brought in a new writer for Star Wars: Episode IX to revise the script from Colin Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly. One has to wonder if this is the fallout from those terrible reviews of Trevorrow’s The Book Of Henry.

Mindy Kaling was photographed between takes while filming the final season of The Mindy Project. I suck at bump watch but I still don’t see it.

Vin Diesel is working on Miami Vice reboot for NBC and holy moly all those words are terrible.

-This is HILARIOUS: the Will & Grace revival will pretend the finale never happened. To recap: in the finale, Grace had a daughter with husband Leo (Harry Connick Jr.), Will was raising a son with husband Vincent (Bobby Cannavale), and Will and Grace were estranged — only to reunite 20 years later in a flash-forward when their kids started dating.

-I love that a reporter at today’s CW panel at the TCAs openly mocked Supergirl’s Mon-El. That…doesn’t happen there.

-The CW’s big superhero crossover will be a two-night affair this year instead of being spread out over four nights like usual. The only hint about the plot is “romance is in the air.” (If they squeeze the Olicity wedding into a crossover, Imma flip a table.)

-Also coming out of the CW panel, the network president recognized that maybe they’ve driven away their female audience too much.  Probably not a coincidence that last year, I saw showrunners/casts opening making fun of female viewers/shippers, and those shows’ ratings subsequently tanked.

-The CW day at TCA ended with an Everwood reunion panel in which the whole cast showed up and cried. God, I loved that show.

-Man, this article on Sharknado’s casting process is a fun read.

John Boyega is defending Kathryn Bigelow against critics who think she wasn’t the person who should have brought Detroit to the big screen.

-Here’s the harrowing first trailer for Angelina Jolie’s Netflix drama First They Killed My Father, which is coming to TIFF.

 

Angelina Jolie Breaks Her Silence in Vanity Fair

angelina-jolie-vanity-fair

-Holy moly, this Vanity Fair cover story with Angelina Jolie is a lot to digest. There’s the intimate look at how she interacts with her kids. There’s the subtle hint that Brad Pitt “persuaded” her to have biological children. There’s her cryptic comment that the kids don’t need to heal from the divorce as much as “from the events that led to the filing,” planting some very specific seeds about Pitt’s behaviour in our imaginations. On the flip side, there are also some rare missteps in this interview. She gets defensive when the interviewer suggests Pitt craved a more stable, settled lifestyle. Her description of how they cast the lead child in her new film (by going to orphanages and slums, showing kids money and then snatching it away to see how they’d react) is beyond cruel. I can’t imagine how she thought that particular anecdote would come across, but she prob wasn’t aiming for ‘despicable.’ Still, if we’re comparing this with Pitt’s pseudo-philosophical GQ interview, she still wins.

Lupita Nyong’o managed to hang out at Comic Con without attracting attention by dressing up as the pink ranger. It’s been a rough news  day; trust me when I tell you that this video will cheer you up.

Kim Kardashian’s surrogate is reportedly 3 months pregnant.

Kate Hudson is still getting cast in movies? I kind of forgot she was an actress.

Amy Schumer is happy that Anne Hathaway may be taking over her role in the life-action Barbie movie, saying “she’s perfect!” I can’t tell if that’s shade or not…

-JFC. The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz is recovering after breaking his neck(!) during a stunt on a movie set.

-The Toast returned for one day and I really, really needed it!

-The TCAs are this week, and HBO used the opportunity to do some Confederate damage control.

Cameron Dallas, Riz Ahmed, Joe Jonas, Stormzy, Brendon Urie  and all your other internet boyfriends are in Charli XCX’s new video.

Jessica Biel and Matt Bomer joined Jimmy Fallon for a game of charades last night. Her arms are INSANE. I really need  to step up my gym game.

Jennifer Aniston supported/mocked Jason Bateman at his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.

-Here’s the trailer for the new season of Top of the Lake, starring Elisabeth Moss and Nicole Kidman.

Lea Michele and Ashley Tisdale did a duet of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” and it’s actually quite lovely.

Jon Hamm and Lois Smith play a couple who aren’t separated by death in the Marjorie Prime trailer, which plays a lot like that Black Mirror episode with Haley Atwell.
