Elle Fanning claims she had an epic paintball outing with Angelina Jolie: “Oh, she’s aggressive..I had never gone paintballing before. We were in full-on armor. We were the only people in the place, with all of her kids. She and I were not on the same team. I was so bad. I hit their security guard in the neck, and he was on my team! Angelina’s really good.” Pics or it didn’t happen.

Mariah Carey is writing her memoirs, which I am gonna read the crap out of. She promises it will be packed with revelations: “Born to a black father and white mother. Lived in basically very humble beginnings. Came out of it…And public humiliation and going through the wringer.” The chapters on Tommy Mottola and Nick Cannon will be worth the price of the book alone.

-In other book-y news, Rihanna is launching a “visual autobiography.” Sweet! Who needs pesky words anyway?

-I’m surprised how traditional Hailey Bieber’s wedding dress is. I mean, it’s very lovely, but not what I was expecting from a 22-year-old model.

-Meanwhile, Justin Bieber mocked Taylor Swift’s banana video.

Ellen Degeneres is having a very bad day. She’s getting deservedly dragged for hanging out with George W Bush, and this tweet about her terrible reputation is going viral.

-It’s been 10 years since Jim and Pam tied the knot on The Office so EW talked to John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Paul Feig, Greg Daniels and Mindy Kaling about the secret ceremony, the last-minute dance, and how a horse almost became the focus.

Jennifer Aniston told Howard Stern that shortly after divorcing Justin Theroux, she sought a psychologist to work through the breakup after he was spotted with various hot young things. She also said she had dinner last week with the full Friends cast.

-It seems like everyone I know has had a Liam Hemsworth sighting in Toronto this week and it’s my turn, dammit.

-The End of the F$*&ing World is coming back to Netflix on Nov 5. I really loved the first season and I’m not sure it needs another one, but I’m intrigued about where it goes from here.

-I’d never listened to the Thirst Aid Kit podcast before but my god, that Dan Levy episode is perfection.

Joaquin Phoenix thinks he’s describing his craft, but he’s actually just describing an eating disorder.

-I’m not the biggest Marc Maron fan but damn, his take on Todd Phillips’ “woke” comments is perfect.

-Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart will release her first book of poems next spring. If nothing else, we’ll get a hilarious episode of Who Weekly outta this.

-Matt Lauer has resurfaced…on TikTok.

-I love that Aaron Paul is doing a Twitter scavenger hunt for premiere tickets to the Breaking Bad movie.

-Also, this video of the cast reuniting for the L.A. premiere made me very happy.

-With the rave reviews A Marriage Story and The Irishman are getting, everyone’s wondering how much money Netflix left on the table by not doing limited theatrical releases.

-Speaking of streaming services being stupid with money, Apple’s deal for Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell’s musical A Christmas Carol includes a $60 million price tag just for talent fees.

-Richard Madden, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth and Mark Strong star in the trailer for the WWI drama 1917.

Kim Kardashian Defends Move Into Law

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Arabia, in which she pushes back on the criticism she’s received for pursuing a law degree.  (“There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true. Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”)

-If you missed last night’s VMAs, here’s a red carpet recap. And the performance you have to check out is Normani’s Motivation. Twitter LIT UP when she was on. She’s gonna be huge.

-I love that Missy Elliott brought out Alyson Stoner (the little girl from the “Work It” video) to recreate her dance routine last night.

January Jones commenting about fellow Mad Men alum Alison Brie’s boobs at the VMAs is a good time.

Justin Theroux went wakeboarding with his The Leftovers costar Ann Dowd and I’m living for it.

-A Bachelor in Paradise contestant didn’t get the memo that the food at their date was just a prop for show only. He still attempted to choke it down, despite his companion’s repeated warnings. “When we get back to the beach and I tell everyone you ate the date food, they’re gonna give you shit. You’re not supposed to eat the date food! I’m trying to help you.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ate at a Cheesecake Factory two nights in a row and I’ve never related to them more.

-SNL has lost Leslie Jones, which sucks.

-Everyone was making fun of this headline about Eva Longoria directing a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos movie, but the film is actually the story of Richard Montañez, a janitor working for Frito Lay who revitalized the company by inventing the new flavour.

-The owner of Taylor Swift‘s real-life “Cornelia Street” apartment had no idea who she was when he rented it to her. “She walked in, and I’ll never forget this — she said, ‘Oooh, it’s so crafty.’ And in Taylor-speak, that means ‘I like everything.’ She asked if she could rent not just the house but my style as well. So towels and dishes and glassware and furniture and just kind of ‘Take your clothes and go.’ So I did. She was an absolute delight to deal with.”

-In his new Netflix special, Dave Chappelle calls Michael Jackson rape accusers liars, defends Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart, and ridicules trans people. Gross.

Francis Capra (who plays Weevil on Veronica Mars) retweeted this sexist shit and I just can’t.

-On the other end of the spectrum we have Harry Styles, who embraces his female fandom instead of ridiculing it. He says in his new Rolling Stone cover story: “They’re the most honest — especially if you’re talking about teenage girls, but older as well. They have that bullsh-t detector. You want honest people as your audience. We’re so past that dumb outdated narrative of ‘Oh, these people are girls, so they don’t know what they’re talking about.’ They’re the ones who know what they’re talking about. They’re the people who listen obsessively. They f-cking own this sh-t. They’re running it.”

-This fall books preview reminded me that Rainbow Rowell has a sequel to Carry On coming out next month and I cannot wait!

-I am very interested in the new Briarpatch series, mostly because it stars Rosario Dawson and was created by one of my favourite TV critics. The trailer has me hopeful.

-Speaking of shows produced by Sam Esmail, here’s the trailer for Mr Robot’s final season.

-The new trailer for Dickinson, the upcoming Apple+ show in which Hailee Steinfeld plays poet Emily Dickinson, is very confusing. Is she…twerking??

Timothée Chalamet is a reluctant ruler in the trailer for period piece The King, accompanied by Robert Pattinson in an equally regrettable wig.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.
