–Ryan Reynolds lives inside a video game in the Free Guy trailer with Joe Keery and Jodie Comer.
-The first trailer for HBO Max’s new Gosssip Girl reboot has arrived. It follows a completely different set of characters from the original but is set in the same world, so I assume cameos are coming (at least from the parent characters).
–Sophie Turner is on the latest cover of Elle. She talks about the controversial Game of Thrones finale (“You can’t make every fan happy”), and her low expectations for her first date with Joe Jonas (“I thought he would be such a dick. I took all my guy friends with me to meet him, because in the back of my mind I was worried he could be a catfish or—I don’t know what…He didn’t bring security. He brought a friend, and they drank just as hard as the rest of us. I remember the two of us spending only a couple of minutes on the dance floor, and then we just found a space far in the corner and we just talked. We talked for hours, and hours, and hours. And I was, like, not bored. It wasn’t contrived. It wasn’t small talk—it was just so easy. And soon we were, like, inseparable”).
-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comercovers British Vogue, and talks about finding love: “I’m very much in it. I’d been single for a while and just kind of going with the flow and doing my thing. That’s the thing, isn’t it? When you’re relaxed and letting the universe do what it’s doing, things kind of fall into place. Which is very much what happened.”
-Despite Jessica Biel being spotted without her wedding ring a few days ago, Justin Timberlake made a gushy birthday post for her on Insta today, writing “Happy Birthday to the LOVE of my life… A new adventure every day and a treasure to me. I can’t wait to share many more of these with you.”
–Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a packed schedule in the UK this week, but their 10-month-old is reportedly staying in Canada with his nanny.
-According to The Sun (so take it with a giant grain of salt), The Queen summoned Harryfor a four hour chat about his future on Sunday, telling him: “You are much loved and will always be welcomed back.”
–Elisabeth Moss, who doesn’t like to publicly talk about Scientology, managed to deftly dodge a question about whether or not she was ever engaged to Tom Cruise.
-After complaining about her recording contract on Instagram earlier this week, Megan Thee Stallionfiled a lawsuit against 1501 Certified Entertainment, alleging — among other things — that the label leaked a story that broke early last month about her past arrest.
-I really liked this article on how Veronica Mars lost sight of itself in its last season — and how that’s best encapsulated in how it treated Weevil. It’s been months and I still see angry tweets about that show. They had such a dedicated fandom and they’ll never get it back, no matter what the future holds.
-On Ellen today, she asked Justin Bieberhow many kids he wanted and he said “It’s up to Hailey because it’s her body.” I mean, that’s nice in theory but he should definitely have an opinion on this.
-Following yesterday’s explosive rape allegation against Timothy Hutton, his Fox show Almost Family was cancelled. The decision to not renew the show was likely made before this (the network didn’t order additional episodes and recently burned off the remaining ones on Saturdays), but were it not for the rape accusation, Fox likely would have waited until the upfronts in May to release the cast from their contracts and make it official.
-I stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy years ago (and judging from my Twitter TL, it’s going through a serious rut right now) but I’m happy that Beanie Feldstein got to live out her dream.
-I watched a couple of episodes of Star Trek: Picard and didn’t keep up with it, but these photos of him reuniting with Riker and Troi are very sweet and almost make me want to jump back in.
-I’m still not done Love Is Blind so I don’t know how everyone ends up, but Lauren was the only person on that show who wasn’t even a little bit terrible so I’m glad she’s happy.
-Also, there’s a reunion special airing Thursday and Netflix released a clip from it. Amber‘s gonna Amber.
-Not up for debate is Better Things (which Pamela Aldon writes, directs and stars in), which returns this week. Season four is getting glowing reviews. I want to shout from the rooftops how good this show is!
-Star Wars continues to retroactively explain The Rise of Skywalker, months after the film was released. The new novelization of the movie reveals how Palpatine came back. Once again for those in the back: if your plot or character motivations were this important, MAKE IT CLEAR IN THE MOVIE.
-The only people who should be wearing masks to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are people showing symptoms of the disease, health care workers, and those caring for people with Covid-19 at home. But celebrities’ Insta posts are helping to fuel the dangerous misconception that everyone needs them.
TV and film’s biggest stars pulled out all the stops at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Red lips, big sleeves and plunging necklines were the big themes of the red carpet. Nicole and I made our picks for the best and worst looks of the night below. (Spoiler alert: we both liked Kerry Washington’s boob necklace. Fight us.)
Nicole: Although the structure of Beanie Feldstein’s Oscar de la Renta gown is simple, it’s flattering and I like the way the neckline frames her face and her simple yet elegant braided headband. The look is fun, youthful and perfect for a young nominee.
Nicole: Taylor Swift is wearing boho Italian brand Etro and the bold print is a standout on the red carpet. The tank-style top is casual and the cutout keeps the large structured gown from overwhelming her frame. The gown says ‘I know I’m just here for fun and definitely not to win for #Cats.’
Jen: When Zoey Deutch stepped onto the red carpet in this perfectly tailored canary Fendi jumpsuit, I gasped. The colour is perfect, the hair is excellent and the jewelry pulls the whole thing together. A stunner.
Nicole:Charlize Theron is wearing Dior as per usual but this look is carried by her overall styling with the black nails, the corset trend, the shoulder cape and a totally different green shade that we’ve not seen. Electric and edgy and matches her overall vibe. Max girl crush.
Nicole: Kerry Washington in Altuzzara is a revelation. I love the slinky skirt which totally offsets the structured jacket under which she’s wearing… a necklace? God, I love this even though I have no idea what’s happening. Her styling is impeccable with a sleek bob and bright red lip. Edgy and elegant. [Jen: I also love this look but judging from the internet, we’re totally alone in this 🤣]
Jen: I love when stars take a risk on the red carpet, but Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Fendi look is a LOT to process. My eyes don’t know where to focus first. The ab-baring bikini with the prairie dress cover up? The necklace buried underneath? The colour that matches her spray tan? The ass corset? It’s all too much!!
Nicole: Jennifer Lopez showed up with A Rod who looked more like her security detail than her fiancée. From the neck up, she’s gorgeous. Then it’s like a Christmas gift that I wrapped (i.e. – no amount of bows can make up for how awful it looks). Wrinkled and big and not what I would have expected from Maison Valentino or her. (Also shut the f*ck up during her interviews, ARod.)
Nicole: Cate Blanchett is a VIBE but her Mary Katranzou dress is as messy as the film she’s nominated for (Where’d You Go Bernadette was better as a book!). She leans into the statement sleeve trend but the bodice and skirt throw this look off-kilter. New York Times’ IG caption said “wait for the back” but I guess that’s only because it’s just as bad from behind?
Nicole: From the waist up, Scarlett Johansson up looks lovely. Predictable but lovely. So why on earth would Vera Wang feel the need to add a giant ass bow? Why does this continue to be a thing? Also can we just construct better gowns that don’t need figure skater material to hold them together? What happened to good old fashioned double-sided tape??
