Timothée Chalamet Talks Paparazzi Pics

Timothée-Chalamet-GQ

Timothée Chalamet covers the new issue of GQ and talks about getting papped making out with Lily-Rose Depp on a boat last year (“I went to bed that night thinking that was one of the best days of my life. I was on this boat all day with someone I really loved, and closing my eyes, I was like, indisputably, ‘That was great.’ And then waking up to all these pictures, and feeling embarrassed, and looking like a real nob? All pale? And then people are like: ‘This is a P.R. stunt.’ A P.R. stunt?! Do you think I’d want to look like that in front of all of you?!”)

Tracee Ellis Ross covers the new issue of Shape and talks about her relationship status: “In my wonderful and robust experience of being single, I have learned to have a productive relationship with loneliness and an intensely juicy relationship with my joyful solitude.”

-How did I miss Regina King‘s gorgeous photo spread in Glamour’s Woman of the Year issue? Gagging.

-Pose’s Indya Moore looks amazing in Balmain on the cover of Vogue India. A a trans, non-binary person being on this cover is a big deal.

Cardi B confirmed what we’d all guessed: she’s back with Offset. “It’s really hard not to talk to your best friend. And it’s really hard to have no dick. And it’s just like, I don’t know.”

Lily Collins is trying to convince us that her character in Emily in Paris is only 22 and everyone just nope-d that real quick.

-This is a very good piece on the “she’s so brave” reactions to Billie Eilish’s recent pap pics: “Insisting upon being alive and comfortable isn’t ballsy — it’s just a far better option than self-loathing.”

-At last night’s Billboard Awards, Lizzo accepted her trophy in a black dress with the word “VOTE” emblazoned multiple times in white lettering and used her speech to encourage her supporters to raise their voices against suppression.

-Also, TMZ says that NBC censored Demi Lovato’s performance and didn’t show her full set, which was emblazoned by “VOTE” messages.

-Meanwhile, Demi was photographed looking cozy with Mod Sun, but her camp insists they’re just hanging out.

-100 Hollywood figures (including NBC stars like the This Is Us cast and Mariska Hargitay) sent a petition to Comcast and NBCUniversal executives protesting the timing of tonight’s Trump town hall, which is set to air opposite ABC’s Biden town hall. NBC News says the town hall will proceed as scheduled despite the growing backlash.

The Queen has stepped out for her first public in person engagement since the start of the pandemic and neither she or Prince William were wearing masks. Considering the state of the UK these days, this seems… dumb.

-Congrats to John Cena, who reportedly married Shay Shariatzadeh this week in Tampa.

Ben Affleck explaining to Matt Damon what a “finsta” is took me out.

There’s a part 3 to that “explaining the pandemic to my past self” video series.

-This is a fascinating interview with Jeff Tweedy, in which he demystifies the process of writing a song.

Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira‘s series adaptation of Americanah is not going ahead at HBO Max. This one hurts.

-Meanwhile, this is a good look at the recent wave of un-renewals, and whether the rising costs of covid-proofing shows could be the thing that finally levels Peak TV.  It also touches on the fact that most of the un-renewals so far have been series about, and often made by, women.

Rachel Brosnahan is a young mother on the run in Amazon’s I’m Your Woman trailer.

Alicia Silverstone Brings Back Cher Horowitz

Alicia Silverstone resurrected her Clueless character  for Lip Sync Battle at it was epic! She looks exactly the same.

-20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion died on Monday following a shooting in South Florida outside a motorcycle dealership.

-In the fallout from Chloe Dykstra‘s essay which accused an ex of emotional and sexual abuse and seemed to imply she was referring to Chris Hardwick, the Nerdist founder has pulled out of Comic Con (where he was supposed to moderate the Doctor Who panel, among other things) and AMC has put his talk show on hold (the second season was supposed to debut on Sunday night with Donald Glover as his guest). Meanwhile, over the weekend Hardwick released a statement — and it’s pretty shitty, with tinges of Gamergate and gaslighting. When he said “As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women,” I thought, ‘oh wow, his wife is expecting?’ Turns out, NOPE! He just meant that at some point in time he may be responsible for making a girl, which means he couldn’t possibly hurt one now…or something? His repeated mentions of how Chloe cheated on him is also cringe-y. On the (very slight) plus side, his crappy statement has people talking about toxic nerd culture.

-In a new interview, Sandra Bullock says she never worked with Harvey Weinstein, but she’d certainly heard of him. “I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f**king angry…People would say, ‘Well, you know how she got that role? She f**ked Harvey.’ I would say, ‘Shut the f**k up. You don’t know that.’ Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked… They didn’t sleep with Harvey. Harvey wanted you to think that.”

-The Ocean’s 8 cast was on the Graham Norton show and it was priceless, from Rihanna telling Helena Bonham Carter why she’s never been invited to the MET gala (“that’s because you wear dresses like that”), to her getting called out for stealing wine glasses from bars.

-Incredibles 2 did incredibly well at the box office this weekend, earning $180 million and breaking the record for best animated debut.

-Actress Amandla Stenberg came out as gay in a new interview for Wonderland.

-Everyone’s still buzzing about the surprise album Beyonce and Jay Z dropped this weekend. I really liked this take about how they are disrupting the very institutions that have proclaimed throughout history that people who look like them don’t belong. (I still can’t believe they shut down the Louvre to shoot a video back in May and she still kept that sh*t locked so tight there were no leaks.)

Idris Elba just dropped a teaser for the new Luther episodes. Gimmie!!

-There’s still lots of questions about what exactly Apple’s streaming TV platform is going to look like, but they continue to keep throwing money at it. They just landed Oprah!

Jon Bernthal, who starred as Shane in The Walking Dead’s first two seasons, is going to appear in an episode of the show’s next season.

-The Darlene-focused Roseanne spinoff is inching closer to reality. THR reports that Roseanne Barr has waived rights to creator fees and backend profits if the spinoff goes ahead, which means the negotiation is now over what, if any, one-time payment she should receive as “go-away money.”

-Do you think Meghan Markle gets advanced warning every time her dad gives a dumb interview? For her sake, I hope so.

-Maybe I’ve just been tainted by this Sex and The City scene, but I really don’t get why celebrities are suddenly into pear-shaped diamonds.

Ariana Grande has a song on her new album called “Pete” so…yeah.

-The MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet was all over the place, style-wise.

-During their emotional reunion, John Cena vowed to get his vasectomy reversed so he could give Nikki Bella a kid. Look, this may all have been fake drama for wrestling, but I’ve been weirdly invested in these two ever since he kind of got teary about the breakup on the Today Show.

Kristen Bell gets dumped at the alter and ends up taking her honeymoon cruise with her estranged father (played by Kelsey Grammer) in the trailer for Netflix’s Like Father.

Madonna’s Carpool Karaoke

Madonna got super stretchy during her Carpool Karaoke session.

-God bless, Xavier Dolan. Who else would talk about Kate Winslet, Blink 182, writing fan letters to the cast of Buffy and Roswell, and being a bottom all in the same interview?

-Of course Mel Gibson is defending Nate Parker.

Chloe Bennet and Colton Haynes are encouraging us all to put down our phones and enjoy our waffles (and also drive safely).

-In his new promos, John Cena vows to fight the entire SNL cast — except for Leslie Jones. Smart man.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed that Billy Eichner got really hot all of the sudden.

Mick Jagger just welcomed his 8th child. He’s 73.

-Wow. Jennifer Lawrence should NOT have told this story in public. Or possibly even in private.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum is talking about her sex life with Channing Tatum. Simmer down, lady. I like you but now you’re just bragging.

Selena Gomez keeps going shopping in her PJs, which confirms my theory that she is living my best life.

-Sad news: Sia has separated from her hubby.

Will Smith is convinced an actual lion is on the loose near his house and Ellen Degeneres can’t convince him otherwise.

Beyoncé’s “Daddy Lessons” was country enough for Dixie Chicks and Blake Shelton, but not for the Grammys. Here’s hoping she retaliates by creating the biggest country album of all time.

-I only caught the last hour of Hairspray Live last night but it actually seemed…good?

-Meanwhile, NBC announced their next live musical will be Bye Bye Birdie — starring Jennifer Lopez!

-I’ve never watched Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt, but its cancellation is turning into a nasty case of he said-she said.

John Krasinski says his Jack Ryan TV series is “a completely different take.” Sure thing, Jim.

-The second trailer for David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike’s A United Kingdom amps up the sadness.

-The first Baywatch trailer with The Rock and Zac Efron made me laugh. Intentionally! I’m shook.
