Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have yet to hold a formal ceremony to celebrate their status as husband and wife, but they’re sure acting married.

John Krasinski reviewed all of the best pranks he and Jimmy Kimmel have every played on each other — and then surprised Jimmy with a new one.

-Also appearing on Kimmel was Cardi B, who revealed that labour was a real eye-opener for her. “She broke my vagina. Why nobody tells you about those things? Nobody told me they were gonna stitch my vagina. People just be like, ‘Oh, you know, when you give birth, it’s gonna hurt.’ But nobody tells you [that].”

Bella Thorne has 19(!) cats — and a dog named Tampon.

Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner‘s Lenny Letter website is reportedly is shutting down tomorrow. It’s too bad; I subscribed to their newsletter and some of their content was pretty great.

David Beckham happened to mention that marriage can be hard work so the divorce rumours are back in overdrive.

-Netflix says more than 80 millions subscribers watched their romcoms this summer. I always side-eye Netflix’s reports about how much their original content is viewed (what’s a “watch”? 30 seconds? The full movie?), but I dig that they  singled out To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before as one of its most viewed original films ever with strong repeat viewing. I only account for about 127 of those…

-Speaking of Netflix’s original romcoms, they just set a release date for the sequel to A Christmas Prince. Here for it.

-Two of the women who exposed Louis C.K.’s harassment have no time for his whining.

Kristen Bells says she uses Snow White to teach her kids about consent (“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?”).

-Speaking of Ruffalo, he will play twins in the HBO adaptation of Wally Lamb’s novel I Know This Much Is True, a book I read a million years ago but I think I liked? Maybe?

Rachel Bloom created three shorts about rape culture.

-Oof, the Jake Gyllenhaal interview story that Lainey tells her her latest podcast does NOT make him come off well.

Jason Blum has apologized (quite well, I think) for his blunder when asked about hiring female directors. Meanwhile, here’s a list of 10 kickasss directors he could turn to.

-Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner inspires the invention of time travel in the trailer for the romcom Time Freak.

Gillian Anderson Is Not Happy with Scully’s Fate

Gillian Anderson discussed what happened to Scully this last season at a fan convention this weekend. Man, you can tell that she’s just gutted about how they did her character dirty. [SPOILERS, OBVS]

-This is nutso: the Westworld creators are planning to post a spoiler video on Reddit outlining season 2 before it airs.  It’s bananas that any show would do this, but especially this one. I get that they were pissed off that everyone guessed last year’s stupid twist ahead of time, but this is a really odd way to deal with that. The whole point of that show is to figure out the twists from what I can tell (I stopped watching in season 1 after it became clear that creating compelling characters wasn’t as important as creating a puzzle maze). But if they take away the fan theory part of it, what’s the point?

Chris Pine is reportedly dating The Mummy actress Annabelle Wallis. She better treat him well! He’s the best Chris!!

-The amount Bill Cosby paid Andrea Constand to settle her case has has been revealed: $3.38 million.

-Vulture’s Sandra Oh interview is so very good. She talks about hanging out with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and how she made the heartbreaking realization of how ingrained racism is when she was reading the Killing Eve script and it didn’t even occur to her that she was being considered for the lead.

-Also, her support of the Asian-American interviewer made him cry.

-I’m glad that Colton Haynes is returning to Arrow as a regular (kill the newbies and bring back the characters who actually don’t suck!), but that make no sense with what they just had his character do a couple of weeks ago.

-With Joss Whedon out, it looks like Batgirl might actually be written by a woman. Gasp!

Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski‘s adorable twitter banter is everything.

-Also, I love that John’s movie crushed all expectations at the box office. And this story about how everyone is afraid to eat during the movie made me laugh.

-Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has added Busy Philipps to the show’s fourth season, so I guess I need to catch up.

-Speaking of Busy, she told a great story about the time she got in a fight at a bar defending Michelle Williams’ honour.

-The new Infinity War trailer heavies up on Black Panther characters, which is always a good thing. Also, this is hilarious.

-In the Future World trailer, James Franco is a warlord in a post-apocalyptic world. Please kill me before this ever happens.

 

Jessica Chastain On Hollywood’s Game

jessica-chastain-town-country

Jessica Chastain is stunning on the cover of Town & Country — and she’s her usual ballsy, outspoken self in the interview. I’m still not convinced that her character in Molly’s Game is all that great (I can’t wait until reviews from female critics land), but I love when she says “I think the industry is beginning to examine itself and how it has perceived female roles. I’m seeing a lot of really interesting discussions, and I do think it’s changing.” But my favourite part is the end, when the male interviewer notes: “Just when I ask if she would like to have children, Chastain says our time speeding around Manhattan is up, and she bids me a cheery farewell.” Ha!

-Speaking of women who give no f*cks in interviews, this one with Shonda Rhimes is a delight!

-While most male comedians have been noticeably quiet on the Louis C.K. front, I appreciated with his pal Sarah Silverman had to say.

-This is a great piece on how late night isn’t equipped to tackle Louis C.K. because the call is coming from inside the house.

-The floodgates, they be open. Sylvester Stallone and his former bodyguard have been accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in 1986. He has denied it.

-Now Al Fraken? Dammit.

-The CW had time to announces Black Lightning’s premiere date and their show’s winter return dates, but still no confirmation that they’ve fired Andrew Kreisberg? Hmmmm….

-Whoa: Transparent writers are reportedly exploring a season 5 without Jeffrey Tambor.

Johnny Depp is front and center in the next Fantastic Beasts? Ugh.

-In ‘not all guys are scum’ news, Drake stopped a concert to scold a guy in the crowd: “Yo, stop that shit. If you don’t stop touching girls I’ll come out there and f**k you up…If you don’t stop putting your hands on girls I’m gonna come out there and f**k you up myself.”

Gillian Anderson gives good Twitter.

-So does Mark Ruffalo.

-I think it’s kind of cute that Prince Harry and Prince William will cameo as stormtroopers in The Last Jedi.

-This is a really good profile on Cardi B. She’s refreshingly candid about how this sudden music success is freaking her out.

-Looking at the last 20 Sexiest Man Alive picks, anyone seeing a problem here?

-Are The Weeknd and Bella Hadid back on?

-Why yes, I WOULD like to watch George Clooney in an adaptation of Catch-22, thankyouverymuch.

-Is Joss Whedon throwing shade at his own movie? He “liked” several tweets criticizing Justice League’s villain. (I honestly don’t think celebrities realize that we can see what they’ve liked on Twitter or Instagram with just one click. It’s baffling.)

-Congrats to Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale, who just welcomed baby No. 2.

Jenna Fischer gushing about John Krasinski is a lot. Like, it’s almost too much. I wonder how Emily Blunt felt reading her new book?

-Meanwhile, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt‘s new horror movie A Quiet Place is reportedly a near-silent film.
