Jennifer Garner Lives Up to Her ‘Queen of Nice’ Title

Jennifer Garner‘s profile in THR is full of goodness. She talks about a possible Alias revival (“Sign me up. I’ll grab Bradley [Cooper] by the scruff of his neck”), her ex-hubby Ben Affleck (“People are in awe of him. He’s done incredible things, he’s six-four, he’s … him, and [strangers] treat him with a kind of reverence”),  and why she allowed rare photos of their kids at her Walk of Fame ceremony in 2018 (“I don’t have two Oscars on my mantle, I’ve raised them. And I think every little kid has a dream that their mom will have a moment where people applaud her so that they can say, ‘That’s right, I knew it,’ and my kids got to have that and for that I’m grateful”). She also revealed that her daughter Violet was once kicked off a soccer team because the paparazzi caused too much of a distraction.

Ryan Murphy set the record straight amid claims by Naya Rivera’s father that he broke a promise to set up a scholarship fund for her son.

-41,000 viewers filed complaints to ITV against Piers Morgan over his comments on Meghan Markle‘s mental health​ — and Meghan Markle was one of them.

-Meanwhile, Morgan tweeted, “On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t.”  (Sidenote: I didn’t realize until I saw this clip that his hatred of her seems to stem from the fact that they once went out for drinks and then she ghosted him — which makes him even more pathetic than I realized.)

CBS will re-air Oprah’s interview with Harry and Meghan on Friday night.

-The people behind Grey’s Anatomy keep making noises about this current season possibly being its last. “I’m planning a season and a finale that could function as either a season finale or a series finale,” showrunner Krista Vernoff told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m planning for both contingencies and it’s hard and it’s not ideal. It’s not where I wish we were.”

Chloe Sevigny had a secret wedding last year — and she wore black.

Tom Cruise Thinks Tenet’s Worth Dying For

Tom Cruise posted a video about going to see Tenet in a crowded theatre and saying “Welcome back to the movies everybody.” I know this was shot in London, but this still feels wildly irresponsible. It doesn’t help that he’s wearing a vented mask.

-I agree with this take on how Christopher Nolan has handled this whole thing has really soured my view of him.

-Some major film publications are refusing to review The New Mutants because Disney did not make screening links available or offer socially-distanced press screenings to film critics.

-In a new interview Jon Hamm says he’s already seen a cut of Top Gun: Maverick and gives it two thumbs up: “It just has that amazing Tom Cruise, tentpole blockbuster, summertime thing. It’s so good. Obviously, Tom knocks it out of the park and all the young kids are great in it. It’s the movie equivalent of a fist pump. You’re just like, ‘Yes!’ It’s exactly what it’s meant to be.”

Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem sat down to record a backyard chat to talk about representation, women’s rights, and voting. In the preview video, their dogs make a surprise appearance.

-I loved Fringe and am seriously considering a quarantine rewatch, but actress Jasika Nicole is right about how terrible the show’s running joke about mispronouncing her character’s name was. She also tweeted that at the beginning, she wasn’t given rides to work despite all the regular cast members getting it, and that one director refused to learn her name. “It was so bad that josh [Jackson] found a name tag, wrote the phonetic spelling of my name on it, and put it on his shirt, knowing the director would pay attention to HIM, might show me some respect that way. josh was trying to use his power/clout for good. Still didn’t work tho.”

Jake Johnson reading thirst tweets about himself is a good time.

-This is a good review of Lovecraft Country.  I was blown away by last week’s premiere, but the follow up episode was surprisingly shaky.

-Here’s Brendan Gleeson as Trump in the trailer for HBO’s limited series The Comey Rule.

Natalia Dyer says she feels protective of her younger Stranger Things costars: “I generally feel like, to me, it’s oversexualizing them. I feel protective over the younger kids even though they’re not kids anymore, they’re teens. They’re all great people and all having to grow up in very crazy circumstances.”

-In the first Enola Holmes trailer, Millie Bobby Brown is on the case. Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, and Helena Bonham-Carter costar in the upcoming Netflix film. This is a *very* good trailer!

Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan fall in love in the trailer for Ammonite. It will premiere at TIFF — which, thanks to the fact that the festival will be mostly digital this year, anyone in Canada can get tickets to! Digital screenings are $19 each and you get the movie for 24 hours. Tickets go onsale to the general public on Sept 5.

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans did an Actors on Actors interview, in which they talked about Avengers, A Marriage Story, Knives Out and Scorsese’s comments about Marvel.

-Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman suggested Scorsese’s timing of his comments is suspect. “You’ve got to think about when he’s saying it. He’s saying it when he’s possibly campaigning for an award. He’s saying it at a time when he’s making a Netflix movie, so that’s how eyes get on his film, and it’s not going to be in the cinemas—it’s not going to be seen the best way.”

-NPR’s Linda Holmes has assembled a guide to more than 60 new holiday movies coming to TV this season. She’s doing god’s work.

-A mini-Mad Man reunion: Jon Hamm attended TV daughter Kiernan Shipka’s birthday party.

Andrew Scott (aka Hot Priest) is looking sinful in the new issue of British GQ.

Drake was booed off stage at LA music festival this weekend when he showed up as the surprise guest. Between this and the Don Cherry news, Canada is really have A DAY.

Beanie Feldstein‘s comedy How to Build a Girl (which I really liked at TIFF) was bought by IFC.

-10 days after AppleTV Plus launched, the head of scripted programming is leaving. Peak streaming is going fine, guys.

-Meanwhile, Disney+ launches tomorrow, and no one seems to know what to do. (I’m sure millions of people downloading an app and logging in for the first time all at once will go incredibly smoothly.)

-The order of the rankings on these types of lists always bug me, but overall The AV Club’s compilation of the 100 best shows of the 2010s is pretty spot on.

-Have you read Daisy Jones & the Six yet? Get on it before Amazon’s adapted series comes out.

-I love that Blumhouse is doing so well, but man all of their movie trailers give me the scares. Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Michael Peña, and Portia Doubleday star in Fantasy Island.
