Meghan Markle Sues UK Tabloid For Publishing Private Letter

-House Sussex is suing the Daily Mail over their terrible coverage of Prince Harry and (especially) Megan Markle and is paying for the lawsuit themselves. If they win in court, proceeds from the lawsuit will be donated to anti-bullying charities. Perfect timing, as the couple is currently on tour. Prince Harry penned a blistering letter about the lawsuit, saying “I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s wedding ceremony in South Carolina last night had a photo booth — which means there are tons of pics on IG.

Angelina Jolie took her large fam to her movie premiere. They’re soo grown up!

-The press tour for Joker continues to disintegrate before our eyes. Todd Phillips seems to think SJWs are trying to ruin comedy: “Go try to be funny nowadays with this woke culture. There were articles written about why comedies don’t work anymore—I’ll tell you why, because all the fucking funny guys are like, ‘Fuck this shit, because I don’t want to offend you.’ It’s hard to argue with 30 million people on Twitter. You just can’t do it, right? So you just go, ‘I’m out.'” As gross as this is, it seems tailor-made to resonate with the type of dudes they keep insisting this film isn’t courting.

-I am very much looking forward to Amazon’s limited series Modern Love, and glowing reviews like this are only helping its case.

Selena Gomez wrote a powerful essay on the immigration crisis for Time magazine. “I don’t claim to be an expert. I’m not a politician, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t work in the system at all. I understand it’s flawed and that we need rules and regulations, but we also have to remember that our country was formed by people who came here from other countries. It’s time to listen to the people whose lives are being directly affected by immigration policies.”

-Here’s the 6 Underground trailer, starring Ryan Reynolds and Melanie Laurent and directed by (ugh) Michael Bay.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are getting married tonight and the celebrations are in full swing.

Andie MacDowell is supportive of her daughter Margaret Qualley dating Pete Davidson: “I FaceTimed with Pete the other day or no, she took a video of me to send to Pete that’s what it was. She has a beautiful relationship with him but I don’t want to step on her relationship too much. They have a nice relationship.”

Kanye West‘s latest album Jesus Is King was supposed to drop last Friday night — and now it doesn’t have a release date. A documentary film about it is expected next month, though.

-NYT’s film critic Wesley Morris thinks Gwyneth Paltrow was once “the best young American actor in the movies” and makes a case for wanting to see her star in films again. Same. (And she does sound a bit over GOOP.)

-This gross anecdote from the Hangover set about Todd Phillips, who just directed Joker, keeps making the rounds on Twitter.

Reese Witherspoon‘s son taught her how to TikTok this weekend and she exuded cool aunt energy.

-Did Jeremy Strong wear his Emmy tux on Succession last night? I have so many questions.

-Speaking of Succession, I had to physically leave the room during the rap in last night’s episode. It’s cringe-y perfection. God, this show.

-In terms of fall TV ratings, no new show hit it out of the park last week, but Prodigal Son did best out of the gate, while Stumptown soared in delayed viewings.

Billie Eilish performed a gravity-defying rendition of “Bad Guy” on SNL this weekend thanks to a rotating set.

-A small group of posh spies race against time to prevent history’s worst criminal masterminds from starting a war in The King’s Man trailer.

Kristen Stewart Keeps It Real in Harper’s Bazaar

kristen-stewart-harpers-bazaar

-In her new Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Kristen Stewart talks about being true to herself (“I’ve fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.’ I don’t want to work with people like that”) and moving past her Twilight phase (“I try to avoid the word ‘awkward’. I want to reclaim that word, because it’s been used too violently against me”).

Stewart joins Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Lili Reinhart, King Princess, and more in Rodarte’s Spring Lookbook. These photos are 😍

-FFS. She’s starring in the two buzziest movies this fall (Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story and Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit), so I don’t know why Scarlett Johansson isn’t trying harder to steer clear of controversy. Like, she literally has to just avoid saying something stupid and she’ll coast to an Oscar nom. And yet here she is in her new THR cover story defending — with very little prompting, I might add — Woody Allen. “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime…I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”

-Will we ever really know what happened with Brangelina and the kids on that plane? Probably not, but Brad Pitt is coming clean about having issues with alcohol. In a new interview with the New York Times, he talks about getting sober (“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges”) and going to AA for a year and a half (“You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard. It was this safe space where there was little judgment and therefore little judgment of yourself. It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There’s great value in that”).

Dwayne Johnson had to leave his honeymoon early to fill in for an injured Kevin Hart on the debut of Kelly Clarkson’s talk show. (I’m really bummed for her that Hart was her first booked guest. She deserves better.)

Lil Nas X held his own and did really, really well despite Kevin Hart‘s attempts to gaslit him about his choice to come out. The internet was def on Lil Nas X’s side.

-Almost one year after Mac Miller‘s death, a man has been charged in connection with his passing for selling counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs containing fentanyl to Miller, two days before his death.

-Yikes. The Crazy Rich Asians co-writer has left the sequel amid a pay disparity dispute. Sources say that Warner Bros. offered Adele Lim $110,000-plus — while offering co-writer Peter Chiarelli $800,000 to $1 million (he later volunteered to split his fee with her). “Pete has been nothing but incredibly gracious, but what I make shouldn’t be dependent on the generosity of the white-guy writer,” Lim said. “If I couldn’t get pay equity after CRA, I can’t imagine what it would be like for anyone else, given that the standard for how much you’re worth is having established quotes from previous movies, which women of color would never have been [hired for]. There’s no realistic way to achieve true equity that way.” So basically the WB sold the first film on its groundbreaking representation — but is willing to endanger the sequel by underpaying because of sexism.

-It’s time for the People’s Choice Awards nominations — the only awards show where Riverdale could possibly lead the way.

-Meanwhile, the Riverdale photos released for the Season 4 premiere show the cast paying tribute to Luke Perry.
