Avengers’ Paul Rudd and Chris Evans Re-Assemble

-The latest Actors on Actors interview is out, and it’s with Paul Rudd and Chris Evans. Needless to say, if you want to be charmed for 43 minutes this is for you. The best part was watching Evans fanboy over Rudd, asking “Why don’t you age? Are you drinking baby blood?”, recalling making him dance on video the first day they met, and saying “you’re like sorbet. You’re a palate cleanser – an always welcome addition.”

Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund are not only still together, they’re having a baby!

Jodie Turner-Smith calling Joshua Jackson a daddy (because “I made him one”) is social media perfection.

-Citing her own “pervasive privilege,” Kristen Bell has announced she is leaving her role as a biracial character on the Apple TV+ animated series Central Park. I would love to know the timing of this and if she made the decision before or after Jenny Slate. (Also, it was only back in January where the Central Park creator strongly defended the casting during the TCAs.)

Naomi Campbell covers the new issue of Vogue Spain and says it’s the first time she’s been photographed by a black Photgrapher for vogue / condenast and it was a woman of color.

-I pity the poor PR person who has to clean up Chris D’Elia‘s latest mess. In a misguided effort to prove he’s not a creep, he released a bunch of emails — which make him sound like a creep.

Demi Lovato seems content and in love, and I’m so happy for her.

-She also just signed a new deal with YouTube for a docuseries following the last three years of her ups and downs.

-Netflix will premiere a new show on July 10 called Down to Earth With Zac Efron in which the actor “searches for healthy, sustainable ways to live.” This is a different show than his upcoming Quibi one called Killing Zac Efron — which sounds like the total opposite.

-I get what this Variety article on the Television Critic Awards’ history of picking white winners was trying to do, but I’m not sure “submitting a more consciously inclusive ballot” is the only answer. (People much smarter than I am are talking about this much better than I ever could.)

Celine Dion released a Pride-themed playlist and it is as cheesy and fun as you’d expect.

The Dixie Chicks are changing their name: The trio is now called The Chicks.

Cardi B was trending today because people thought she was trashing other female artists on a fake account. “These people must think I’m a 15-year-old girl … Stop trying to make this fake s**t up… don’t make lies about me. it’s tiring. It’s annoying.”

-Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones are reuniting for a pair of comedic shorts for Ireland’s Comic Relief. It’ll be set 40 years in the future — though I’m not sure older versions is really what people want to see from these characters.

-Meanwhile, following the success of Normal People, Hulu has ordered an adaptation of Sally Rooney‘s other novel, Conversations with Friends — a book I liked a lot more.

Ansel Elgort Gets Naked for Charity

Ansel Elgort trended today because he posted a nude photo to Instagram with the caption “OnlyFans link in bio”, but instead of sending people to a paid porn site, the link goes to a GoFundMe page for buying meals for Brooklyn hospital staff. That’s both cringingly thirsty and kind of clever.

-Congrats to the internet’s favourite celebrity couple Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, who welcomed their new baby girl.

J.Lo and A-Rod are trying to buy the New York Mets. That’s one way to combat self-isolation boredom, I guess.

Tiffany Haddish was on Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Red Table Talk and got blunt about what she’s looking for in a guy — and it isn’t what you think: “I prefer small penises because I feel like small ones respect you. They’re kind. They buy you nice gifts. They take you nice places. They’ll come and clean your house; fix your cars for you. Small penises are penises of service. Big penises just do whatever they want to do.”

-I don’t really know much of Rafe Spall besides the fact that he’s that guy from Life of Pi and Just Mercy, but goodness this is a great interview. On losing weight for roles, he said “I understand it, but you’ve got to be very careful with peddling the basic idea that being thin is happy and being fat is unhappy because all my problems are the same, regardless of the size of my waistline… When I’m extremely disciplined and not eating anything my wife doesn’t find me attractive – what she finds attractive is eating together and the sensuality of food. Look, eating nothing but fish and salad for 12 weeks is the opposite of sex.”

-I’m assuming this live tweet of Anna Kendrick‘s sex doll show on Quibi is far more entertaining than the show could ever be.

Andie Macdowell and her daughters Rainey and Margaret Qualley wanted to go to a closed park so badly, they crawled under a fence to get in. Tom Brady also tried to work out in a closed park. Celebrities, “closed” signs apply to you too!

Rainn Wilson had his Office costar Jenna Fisher on Instagram Live, and she showed off her Dundee Awards.

Jennifer Ehle posted video of her reading Pride & Prejudice and it’s all I’ve ever wanted.

Robert Pattinson wants to remind you that Twilight was weird as f*ck. “Even before Twilight, I was doing weird stuff. And to be honest, I always thought Twilight was pretty weird. It’s really just the kind of marketing that made it mainstream. If you look at any interview I did, I would be pushing the chewing through placenta, any element which I could make gross, like I’d push and push and push it to the front. But you know you can’t compete with one guy against the whole marketing department going, ‘It’s a romantic odyssey, it’s beautiful.’ It’s like, ‘No, it’s disgusting [laughs].'”

-One of my very favourite things is the Austin 100, NPR’s annual streaming list of 100 songs you should check out from artists playing SXSW. Now that the fest is cancelled, it’s even more important to give these bands the lift they’re losing out on.

-Little Fires Everywhere dropped its first three episodes on Hulu early! Joshua Jackson announced the news in a super cute photo.
