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!

Gillian Anderson gives good Twitter.

-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?

-I don’t watch Rick and Morty (I know, I know) but it’s awesome that the creator is slamming trolls attacking their female writers.

-“I’m a target in a way most entrepreneurs are not,” says Gwyneth Paltrow in a new interview about GOOP.  Well to be fair, most entrepreneurs aren’t telling us to steam our vaginas…

-Also, here’s photos of her GOOP lab in LA, which the author describes as “equal parts ridic and chic as f*ck”.

Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney are going to star in a TV show together and my head just exploded.
