Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost Have Baby Boy

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost have welcomed a baby boy named Cosmo(!) into the world. It’s her second child, and their first together.

-Congratulations to Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe and Tony McGill who recently welcomed their first child together — despite her fans not knowing she was pregnant.

-In THR’s new cover storyMichael Keaton admitted that he got lost when the Morbius filmmakers tried to break down what’s been happening in the MCU and how it makes sense that he’ll play Batman in The Flash thanks to the multiverse. “I’m nodding like I know what the fuck they’re talking about. I go, ‘Uh-huh.’ And I’m thinking, ‘You may as well be explaining quantum physics right now to me. All I know is I just know my guy. And I know the basics.’ So finally, they were looking at me, and they just started laughing. They said, ‘You don’t know what we’re talking about, do you?’ I said, ‘No, I don’t, no idea what you’re talking about.'”

-I don’t know what I’m less surprised by: that Carrie Underwood would like an anti-mask tweet from an extremist voice like Matt W*lsh, or that celebrities still haven’t figured out that we can easily see which tweets they’ve liked.

Joshua Jackson really wanted to clarify that yes, Jodie Turner-Smith proposed to him first, but that’s not the whole story. “Yes, two proposals. And also for anybody who is freaked out by a woman claiming her own space, shut the fuck up. Good God, you cannot believe the things people were leaving my wife on Instagram. She did it. I said ‘yes.’ We’re happy. That’s it. That’s all you need to know. That has been a real education for me as a white man, truly. The way people get in her comments and the ignorance and ugliness that comes her way is truly shocking. And it has been a necessary, but an unpleasant education in just the way people relate to Black bodies in general, but Black female bodies in specific. It is not okay. We have a long way to go.”

-The Ringer talked to current and former colleagues of new Jeopardy host Mike Richards…and it’s not good! Also, his old podcast jokes have resurfaced online and they are also not good.

-According to The Daily Beast, Queen Elizabeth‘s lawyers wrote to major British newspapers warning them against taking or publishing pictures of the royals at Balmoral the same day that Prince Andrew arrived there. Interesting how they were willing to sic lawyers on the press for negative coverage of him but not Meghan Markle.

Ant Anstead confirmed that he’s dating Renee Zellweger, saying “Look, everybody knows that Renee and I have become quite close… we kept it secret for a while, and unfortunately some pictures were taken and put out there.”

-Open arguments have begun in R. Kelly’s sex crime trial, and prosecutors said he used “every trick in the predator’s handbook.” Meanwhile, his lawyer seemed flustered in her opening remarks, accidentally saying “the girls” in reference to Kelly’s partners before quickly correcting herself by saying “excuse me, the women,” as well as saying: “You ultimately will have to find Mr. Kelly guilty — excuse me, not guilty.”

Alyssa Milano and her uncle were involved in a car accident after he suffered a suspected heart attack while driving.

Phoebe Dynevor has signed on to executive-produce and star in Amazon’s adaptation of Exciting Times and now everyone is wondering what that means for Bridgerton. She’s only in brief scenes in the subsequent books — because that’s how those books work.

-This is an interesting piece on Nicole Kidman the film actor versus Nicole Kidman the TV star, and how she seems to be choosing less interesting roles on the small screen vs the big screen.

-Meanwhile, I had no idea her new show Nine Perfect Strangers had already started airing. There’s too much TV.

-I was clicking on a celebrity-related tweet last week and it went to Gawker, which felt like a time warp. The site is back with an almost-all female staff.

-With Delta bearing down hard on the US, the movie studios are beginning to rethink their release schedule again. The fall film festivals are still rolling on, though.

-Oooh boy. Canadian director Denis Villeneuve said of Dune’s release, “The way it happened, I’m still not happy. Frankly, to watch Dune on a television, the best way I can compare it is to drive a speedboat in your bathtub. For me, it’s ridiculous. It’s a movie that has been made as a tribute to the big-screen experience” Sigh. Look, I get that as a filmmaker, he wants people to see his movies in the best possible presentation — not to mention his profits and ability to make a sequel are probably tied to box office receipts. But others have pointed out the elitism of his comments. Also, we’re in a pandemic! If people are more comfortable watching it on HBO Max, at least they’re watching it. And not to give James Gunn too much credit, but I did like what he had to say recently about movies becoming favourites because they’re re-run on TV, which seems especially true for a film like Dune, which is destined to be a cult fave due to repeated viewings.

-I don’t watch RHONY, but I really liked this interview with Eboni K Williams about getting along with costars like Ramona Singer who have different political views.  “I’m not looking to see if Ramona and I agree on North Korea, or mask bans, or anything like that. I don’t care about that. But I’ve got to see if we align on those basic principles of shared humanity. And if we don’t, that saves me time, and really, Ramona time.”

-Here’s the final trailer for Annette, which seems to have divided critics.

Jodie Turner-Smith‘s jewels were stolen from her hotel room in Cannes. It’s believed she may have been targeted after wearing Gucci jewelry to her premiere.

-I’m not sure I like what Bella Hadid wore to Cannes, but tree boobs are certainly one way to generate buzz.

-French actor Judith Chemla, the 37 year-old French star of Mes freres et moi, will not attend the world premiere of the film at Cannes today after she filed a complaint against the director Yohan Manca (who is also her boyfriend), alleging he threw a phone at her. Uh, maybe he’s the one who shouldn’t go?

-A spokesperson for Lea Seydoux confirmed she tested positive for COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated and asymptomatic. She will remain in quarantine until her doctors deem her safe to travel to Cannes and attend festival events. Which should be, like, NOT before the fest is over, no?

Vince Staples and Lil Nas X’s twitter exchange was hilarious. No one is doing socials right now better than this kid.

-Here’s another best TV of the year so far list. I would add We Are Lady Parts to this list, but I love that Girls4eva and Starstruck made it in there.

-The reviews for White Lotus, HBO’s new show that debuted last night, are glowing. It’s about wealthy people ruining the lives of various workers at a Hawaiian resort, and the cast is stacked!

-Speaking of TV reviews, the new season of Ted Lasso is getting praise (though the premiere reportedly gets off to a shaky start with a baffling storytelling decision critics aren’t allowed to spoil).

The Supernatural Brothers Are Back to Fighting — This Time, Each Other

-Why are CW actors being so messy this week? Jared Padalecki says he’s ‘gutted’ he found out about Jensen Acklesplanned Supernatural prequel through Twitter last night. Yikes. I mean, I always assume costars who pretend to be BFFs aren’t really IRL, but Ackles could have texted him. And the CW, where Padalecki is headlining Walker, should also have also given him a heads up. Of course, instead of reacting in front of the whole world, Padalecki could have texted instead. This whole situation is not cool.

Padalecki posted an update this afternoon, tweeting Jensen Ackles and I had a great talk, as we do often, and things are good. The show is early in the process with miles to go. We’ve travelled a lot of roads together, and sometimes those damn roads have bumps. Bumps don’t stop us. Once brothers, always brothers.” 

-Surprisingly non-messy CW actor Ian Somerhalder had a lovey fan encounter and shouted out Halifax for her.

Jodie Turner-Smith tweeted that she nearly missed her flight home from Italy and the airport greeter told her, “I know who is your husband, all of Italy understands why you need to get home to him.” Truth.

-Black creators on TikTok are on indefinite “strike”, refusing to choreograph a dance for Megan Thee Stallion‘s “Thot Shit” on the app because they know white creators are just going to appropriate it without compensation or credit.
