seth-rogen-gq

-I love how everyone’s freaking out about how good Seth Rogen looks in his new GQ spread. He talks about Kanye West’s influence on him and why he and his wife don’t have kids. “We very much like our lives, so we will continue to put it off, it seems like, for a little while…I’ve had my friends be like, “Yeah, it really was hard on our relationship.” I’m not saying we couldn’t overcome it, but, again, we really get along and have a very good dynamic. She works very hard, and a lot as well, so when we’re together, we really try to enjoy each other and hang out.”

Rihanna’s NYT interview is a must-read: “I love being black. So, sorry for those who don’t like it.”

Celine Dion‘s episode of Carpool Karaoke aired and she was even more extra than we could have hoped for!

-In their new Esquire interview, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio talk about getting butterflies when meeting Luke Perry on the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it’s very sweet.

-Also, I’m sure Brad and Leo like each other — but this clip of them on the Cannes red carpet makes it look like they really, really don’t.

-Also at Cannes, Nicolas Winding Refn said his new TV show isn’t actually a TV show.  “It’s a 13-hour movie. It’s not TV!” Sigh. If movie directors don’t respect TV, maybe they should not attempt TV?

Colin Firth came to Elle Fanning’s rescue when she fainted at a Cannes party, which is so very Mr. Darcy of him.

-This is a good explanation of Hulu/Disney/Comcast divorce. Basically, I’m expecting to look back at my cable bill as “the good ole days” when we’re all paying twice for all the streaming services we’ll end up getting.

-The endless Keanu Reeves love that has come out of the John Wick 3 promo tour has been such a treat. I especially love this video of him with puppies.  There’s also this great story of him making a teen theatre employee’s day. And of course, his Ellen interview where she questioned why he and Sandra Bullock never got together when they both admitted to crushing on each other at the same time, and he responded “We were working.

-I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory, but people are really upset by the Penny twist.

-On a new podcast, Julianna Margulies said she’s done ‘protecting CBS’ over the real reason she hasn’t gone on The Good Fight — because they wouldn’t pay her what she was making on The Good Wife. “I thought, Why am I protecting CBS? I said yes. They said no. And you know what? I need to pave the way for the next one coming up…I also know for a fact that any male star who is asked to come on a spin-off of their show would’ve been offered at least $500,000…If they were to ask me to go back on The Good Fight, paying me what my salary is, [I would be there] in a heartbeat.”

Richard Madden is on a promo blitz for Rocketman, which includes an interview with Elton John. He also did an interview with British Vogue, in which he talked about feeling insecure about his body when shooting sex scenes (“I find myself with actor friends – after we’ve done a kind of barely eating, working-out-twice-a-day, no-carbing thing for these scenes – looking at each other going: ‘We’re just feeding this same s**t that we’re against'”) and how he’d be down with playing “a Bond boy.”

-Woahhh nelly! According to the Daily Beast, lawyers for Prince William are scrambling to suppress reports of his affairs in the press, claiming publications are violating his “human rights.”

Scarlett Johansson released a statement after being chased by the paparazzi following a talk show appearance with her Avengers costars yesterday. “After leaving Jimmy Kimmel, I was followed by five cars full of men with blacked out windows who were running red lights and putting other drivers and pedestrians at risk so they could follow me to find out where I was staying and subsequently stalk me and my young daughter for the duration of my stay.” She had her driver take her to a police station until it was safe to go home.

-Yesterday, Felicity Huffman was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and will plead guilty. She told the court, “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.” And today, Lori Loughlin was indicted on money laundering in addition to her previous mail fraud charge.

-This is the second interview in a month in which Julianna Margulies talked about not appearing on The Good Fight because they wouldn’t pay her the same rate she got on The Good Wife. I don’t disagree with her but … this feels odd.

I was on such a destructive path that I could not function. I lost partial sight in my left eye for a while. I ended up having two seizures. I didn’t know any of this was happening until I was sober enough to remember it.”

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dispelled those split rumours by going for a walk in NYC. I have so many questions about their wardrobe. If it’s cold enough for both of them to be wearing toques, then why is she only wearing a thin jean jacket?

-Hmmm, this is interesting. Angelina Jolie may be pivoting away from her recent directing roles…to become a Marvel superhero. Which is not a bad career move (it’s actually pretty badass branding), but it’s a big diversion from where she’s been focused the last few years.

Wendy Williams was spotted out with her husband, even though he reportedly just welcomed a child with his alleged mistress.

Pete Davidson reveals he once offered to pick up the bill for Kanye West’s extravagant dinner – and then immediately regretted it. “Kanye kept ordering the whole entire time. I didn’t know he was coming and I already put my card down because I thought it would be just me and [Kid] Cudi. Then, [Timothee] Chalamet showed up and then Kanye showed up and I was like ‘Oh, f**k’. And then I had to book two more gigs in Ohio.”

-This is lovely: Jason Momoa was honoured by local First Nation residents with a traditional fish feast while filming in B.C.

-People who saw Us are really into Winston Duke’s thighs. I haven’t even seen the film and yet this makes a lot of sense to me.

Rashida Jones reflected on #MeToo and Time’s Up during a panel discussion this week: “For these movements, there’s always an inflection point, and so many inflection points that are started by black women are missed.

-Remember when cord cutting was supposed to save us so much money compared to having cable? With Apple joining Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, YouTube TV, CBS All Access (not to mention the upcoming streamers being launched by Disney, Warner Bros, etc), the streaming bubble is just about ready to burst. The Wall Street Journal nails it: “If you look at the market currently, the average consumer may have room to add a service or two but the ceiling of what a consumer will pay is soon reached.”
