Aubrey Plaza Ignored Chris Pratt’s Advice

aubrey-plaza-cosmopolitan

-While I hate the granny panty/diaper they put her in on the cover, Aubrey Plaza looks adorable in the inner pages of Cosmo. (This REDValentino dress is my fave.) In the interview, she talks about advice she got from her Parks and Rec costars (“Chris Pratt used to tell me when he would give me advice: ‘The separation is in the preparation.’ He’s one of those people who’s always very prepared. I was kind of the opposite. Clearly, it worked out for him”), and creating her own projects (“I’m so used to relying on this patriarchal idea of waiting around for someone to say, ‘You’—some brilliant man. I still have that voice inside my head that wants that. But it’s like, I’m 34. I can do it myself…I’m sick of doing other people’s shit. I want to do my own shit”).

-The Jonas Brothers have a new documentary, where they talk about their purity ring past. Joe says of the virginity symbols: “That was not who we were. It was just something that we did when we were young kids but we wore the rings through the first bit of the band starting to explode, at that point it was already too late because it was in the media.”

Lady Rose Cholmondeley (aka the woman at the centre of all those Prince William rumours) attended the State Banquet last night, but while her husband got to walk in with the procession that included the Queen, the Trumps, etc. she did not.

Christoph Waltz and Wallace Shawn have joined the cast of the next Woody Allen film, and as much as I hate cancel culture we might need to evoke it now for these two. (Allen’s already long cancelled, obvs.)

-Who says spoilers are harmful? After the end of James Holzhauer‘s winning streak was leaked, last night’s Jeopardy was the most watched episode in 14 years.

Jon Hamm is incredibly charming in this interview clip with David Tennant. His little smirk at the camera after his says “always add an extra 1/2 inch.” 🤣

-The season of appreciating Keanu Reeves continues. I hope it never ends!

Busy Philipps testified today in front of the House Judiciary Committee about abortion rights. “It is my body. Not the state’s.”

-This is a really fascinating deep dive into the writers room on The Good Place.

-When Sophie Turner realized she was on the Jumboton at MSG, she chugged a glass of red wine. Which is both gross and awesome.

-Five years after it first aired Andy Daly revisits the pancakes episode of Review, which might be my favourite half-hour of television ever.

-The Stranger Things season 3 trailer is here. The bit with Steve geeking out with imaginary lightsabers with Dustin in front of the hot girl warmed my heart.

Jordan Peele hid three Corey Feldman Easter eggs in Us.

Ricky Gervais‘ new Netflix show After Life, about a grieving widower whose suicide attempt is interrupted by a dog, is getting rave reviews.

-Speaking of rave reviews, critics are digging Jann Arden’s six-part series, which debuts tonight.

-Today Disney closed their $71 billion acquisition of Fox entertainment business, one of the biggest media consolidations in Hollywood history. It brings nearly all Marvel heroes and villains under one owner, with the Fox-owned X-Men and Deadpool now in the Disney-controlled MCU. (It’ll be interesting to see if they’ll be able to keep the Deadpool movies profane despite Disney’s squeaky clean rep.) On the TV side, Disney now has a massive TV studio with A-list showrunners like Seth MacFarlane, Lee Daniels and Kurt Sutter.  They also acquired Fox’s 30% stake of Hulu, which now gives Disney a controlling interest of 60%.

-Here’s the first trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. People are going crazy for it, but I’m not sold yet.

-Also, this video on the Easter eggs you may have missed in the film’s poster made me laugh a lot.

-Here’s the first trailer for Lucy in the Sky, starring Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz and Dan Stevens. It’s produced by Reese Witherspoon and is the directorial debut of Legion/Fargo creator Noah Hawley.  So yeah, I’m in.

jon-hamm-esquire

-In his new Esquire interview, Jon Hamm talks about how he’s ready to move on from Don Draper,  recalls how he used to dress sets for softcore porn, and gets agitated when the interviewer brings up those hazing allegations made against him in college.

Colin Farrell checked into an Arizona rehab center for a “reset” after 10 years of sobriety.

-In his Rolling Stone interview, Dwayne Johnson opened up about his issues with Vin Diesel on the set of F&F.  (“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer,” he says. “And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach moviemaking and collaborating…But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have.” He considers this, then lets out a big, sly laugh. “Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”)

-People is quoting sources (probably from Channing Tatum‘s camp) that claims the actor was turning down jobs to spend more time with his family before the split.

-A lot of critics who supported Roseanne (the TV show, not the person) seem to have jumped ship after last night’s episode (which was not one of the three given to them in advance). Apparently it featured her calling her granddaughter a bitch and took a swipe at Blackish and Fresh off the Boat.

-Not surprisingly, the creator of Blackish isn’t feeling very welcome at ABC these days and may be heading to Netflix.

-Speaking of moving on to Netflix, this interview with Ryan Murphy touches on why he left FX, including his fears about the potential Disneyfication of their shows.

-This Roswell cast reunion pic is everything I never knew I wanted!

-Don’t feel bad — Rihanna watches Vanderpump Rules, too.

-This Vulture article on how 50 female characters where introduced in their screenplays is full of infuriating descriptions. Evie in The Mummy is a “typical prudish nightmare”, Neytiri in Avatar has “nubile breasts” and Julia from Death Proof is wearing “panties that her big ass (a good thing) spill out of, and her long legs grow out of.”

Jonah Hill and Ashley Olsen‘s friendship will never not seem weird to me.

Gwyneth Paltrow wished Robert Downey Jr. a happy birthday by posting a photo of them with Tom Holland. I’m still bummed that Peter left the press conference scene in Spider Man: Homecoming just before Pepper walked in. I wanted to see those two interact. I kind of feel like Pepper would just instantly adopt him and try to undermine all of Tony’s advice in a very cute way.

Ryan Reynolds continues to joke about those split rumours, this time bringing his mom into it.

Justin Beiber tries his hand at comedy and I don’t hate it?

-Just in case it wasn’t clear that they’re dating, Riverdale stars Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse were photographed kissing in Paris.

-Here’s the new trailer for season four of The Affair, a show I somehow forgot existed even though it stars Joshua Jackson.

Cynthia Nixon revealed on Wendy Williams that she was “devastated” when the audience she was watching the SATC movie with clapped when Mr Big built Carrie a walk-in closet. “It seemed to me that the show was so much about female empowerment and about women making their own choices and women standing up for what they wanted and supporting themselves. So, to me, to have this [scene] be a climax of the film, that your very wealthy husband built you a really nice closet for your clothes, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s not really what you love about the show, is it?’ ‘Cause that’s not what we were making it for.”

-Wait, did NBC just quietly cancel Jennifer Lopez‘s NBC cop drama?

-Does any TV cast have more fun than the Legends of Tomorrow one? They keep making adorable music videos.
