Issa Rae Covers Cosmo

 

issa raeIra wrote the cover story on Issa Rae for Cosmo. Love them both!

Kate Beckinsale is on the cover of Women’s Health, in which she talks about people’s perception of her. “It can feel like a little bit of a political act to be a woman over 32 who’s having any fun at all. And by that, I don’t mean doing drugs and drinking and partying, because I never am, but being goofy, and going out, and not going, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to sit home and anticipate menopause while crocheting.’ ”

-Also, she doesn’t love it when Instagram followers comment on her smoking.

-The more people talk about Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat‘s “incredibly tight bond,” the more it bugs me that there’s no dating rumours about them. I have no idea what’s going on with them, but if any other actress was repeatedly spotted spending time with him during social distancing, the tabloids would have them engaged by now. But because she doesn’t look like what we expect his girlfriend to look like, every article emphasizes how they’re “just friends.”

-Before social distancing started, Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Adam Scott, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow filmed a Red Nose Day segment in which they attempt to get out of Jack Black’s Escape Room.

-Is Dolly Parton going to save the world? The signer is funding some of the most important, most promising COVID-19 treatment research.

-Any Taffy Brodesser-Akner profile goes to the top of my TBR list, but this one on Val Kilmer is especially outstanding. He now tours a show where he dresses up like Mark Twain and does Christian Science-themed standup comedy.

-HBO Max has given a 10-episode series order to a single-camera comedy starring Jean Smart, from three Broad City producers. It’ll be executive produced by The Good Place creator Mike Schur. I like all of those people!

Sources say Trolls 2’s top voice stars, including Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick were not informed ahead of the announcement that the film would be arriving on-demand early. Now their reps are asking for pay.

-The creator of Black Mirror says the world is too bleak for a new season right now. Seeing as we’re all living in a episode of that show right now…yeah.

-If any actor was going to be the first to shoot a movie in space, Tom Cruise makes the most sense.

-I share a birthday with Baby Archie, which I’m not mad about. Everyone was wondering how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would commemorate it on social media, and they did even better than I expected (considering all their recent PR flubs) by posting a cute reading video for charity.

-It’s also George Clooney’s birthday. To commemorate his 59th, former ER love interest Julianna Margulies shared a bts pic of their last scene.

-Novelist Emily Giffin hates Meghan Markle so much. Girl, I read Something Borrowed. Sit down.

-Vulture’s costar reunions continue with Happy Endings’ Eliza Coupe and Elisha Cuthbert. I love that Cuthbert is wearing an East Coast Lifestyle had like a good Canadian.

-I’m not sure how I feel about Adele’s drastic transformation. I hope she’s healthy and happy, but she looks like everyone else in Hollywood now. (Specifically, Sarah Paulson.)

-Also, with Adele trending it surfaced this amazing video of her meeting some of her impersonators.

Gal Gadot Talks Marriage and Motherhood in Vogue

Gal Gadot vogue

Gal Gadot covers Vogue, and though she doesn’t address her much-ridiculed “Imagine” video, she does talk about meeting her husband: “In the desert at this chakra/yoga retreat type of party. And he was too cool for school. Like, we were in the same group of friends but I didn’t know him and he didn’t know me. And something happened kind of from the first moment we started talking. When we got home, I was like, ‘Is this too early to call you? I want to have a date.’ Then we go out, and by the second date he told me, ‘I’m going to marry you. I’m going to wait for two years, but we’re going to get married.’ I was like, ‘Fine.'”

-In a new chat with Amy Schumer in Interview, Selena Gomez talks about how tabloids would spin it every time she stepped away from the spotlight. “The way the media has sometimes tried to explain things has made it sound really bad, when in reality there’s nothing wrong with the fact that I needed to go away or that I fell in love. I had to start opening up because people were taking away my narrative, and it was killing me.”

-Meanwhile, Selena just nabbed Tom Petty’s L.A. mansion for $5 million.

-Actors Manny Jacinto, Lucas Hedges, Glen Powell and more sent GQ photos of their fave outfits. Is it just me, or do they all seem to be quarantining with professional photographers?

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have resumed their pap-friendly strolls. Yay?

Diddy hosted a celeb-packed dance-a-thon to raise money for healthcare workers and his ex Jennifer Lopez made an appearance (she still calls him “Puffy”). But Diddy was not here for Lizzo‘s performance and cut it off early. “It’s Easter Sunday. Let’s play something a little bit family friendly.” He later clarified: “When I stopped the music it was because it had a lot of curses in there. Not because she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world.”

-Speaking of charity IG Lives, Rihanna did one and warned fans to quit asking about new music. “If one of y’all motherf–kers asks me about the album one more time when I’m trying to save the world, unlike y’all president… on sight.” She’s not wrong.

Justin Timberlake is in Montana with his family, and says that parenting 24 hours a day is “not human.” They have one child.

-Harry Potter’s Rupert Grint and his longtime girlfriend, actress Georgia Groome, are expecting their first child together.

-The SNL at-home episode was odd, but I did really like the Zoom sketch.

Kristen Stewart‘s girlfriend, screenwriter Dylan Meyer, celebrated Stewart’s milestone 30th birthday with a sweet Instagram post, writing “It’s a short ride on this earth, spend your time with someone that inspires you to be the best version of yourself and lights your shit on fire.”

-These videos people are making pretending to be Madonna’s assistant will never not make me laugh.

-In case you need a little Monday pick me up, here are the staged rowing photos that Lori Loughlin allegedly used to get her daughters into college.

-This article on the weaponized niceness of Ellen Degeneres is worth your time. In completely unrelated news, here are some very unstaged photos of her delivering PPE to a fire station.

-I watched the Tiger King reunion special so you don’t have to.

-My favorite part of this interview is when Ellen Pompeo is pretty blunt about how she preferred the early seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. “The show back then was just so, so, so, so good. I wish we had an appreciation for it then about how good it was. I don’t think we did, I don’t think any of us did. There was too much shit going on. It was too big, it was too hot, it was too fast and there was just so much going on in the beginning…I wish we had appreciated it for really how good it was, because — man, the show was fantastic back then.”

-Someone posted Black Widow’s alternate death scene from Avengers: Endgame. What a better way for her to go out.

-Man, some celebrities need to step away from Instagram Live during quarantine. Stephen Amell did a charity one last night and he was visibly drunk and slurry.

-During an interview for Meghan Markle‘s issue of Vogue, Dr. Jane Goodall reveals that Prince Harry hinted at the royal split last summer when she met baby Archie. “I made Archie do the Queen’s wave, saying, ‘I suppose he’ll have to learn this’. Harry said, ‘No, he’s not growing up like that.’ ”

One Direction fans are losing their poo at rumours of a possible reunion show.

-Here’s the trailer for season 2 of Dead to Me, which returns to Netflix May 8.

Florence Pugh Defends Relationship with Zach Braff

Florence Pugh is fighting back after she posted a birthday message for Zach Braff and people immediately commented on their age differene: “I do not need you to tell me who I should or should not love and I would never in my life — ever ever — tell anyone who they can or cannot love. It is not your place, and really it has nothing to do with you.”

Lady Gaga covers InStyle and says she’s “very excited” to start a family: “I look forward to being a mom. Isn’t it incredible what we can do? We can hold a human inside and grow it. Then it comes out, and it’s our job to keep it alive. It’s so funny — everyone works out of my house every day. When they come in, I always say, ‘Welcome to the Womb!'”

Cardi B is partnering with Fashion Nova to give away $1,000 every hour until May 20.

-Also, Halsey donated 100,000 face masks to four California hospitals.

George and Amal Clooney donated more than $1 million to coronavirus relief efforts.

Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig star in a quarantine soap opera skit titled The Longest Days of Our Lives.

Jake Gyllenhaal says Heath Ledger refused to do the opening at the 2007 Academy Awards because producers wanted to stick in a homophobic joke about Brokeback Mountain. “I was sort of at the time, ‘Oh, okay… whatever.’ I’m always like, ‘It’s all in good fun.’ And Heath said, ‘It’s not a joke to me – I don’t want to make any jokes about it.’ That’s the thing I loved about Heath. He would never joke. Someone wanted to make a joke about the story or whatever, he was like, ‘No. This is about love. Like, that’s it, man. Like, no.’ ”

Jodie Turner-Smith is my favourite person on Twitter because of stuff like this.

Justin Timberlake did Hot Ones. I couldn’t make it through the whole interview because there’s no way I can suffer through a half hour of JT, but good for him for giving Nardwuar a shout out.

-SNL is returning with a new, remotely produced episode this Saturday.

Nicole Richie was on Naomi Campbell’s daily “talk show” and she reminisced about sticking her hand up a cow’s butt during an episode of The Simple Life: “The pressure of going inside the cow? That feeling will never leave my body.”

-Exes Demi Moore and Bruce Willis are taking conscious uncoupling to the next level: they’re self-isolating together with their kids.

-There’s a new Gourmet Makes! Claire tries to recreate Cadbury creme eggs.

Jimmy Fallon gets introspective in a new Vulture interview and says it will be a long, long, long time before The Tonight Show could be the same again. And it may never be.

Wills and Kate hired the Sussexs’ former Instagram manager.

The Strokes are dropping a new album tomorrow and early reviews are glowing.

-The New Yorker profiled Fran Lebowitz on how she’s been handling social distancing and every quote is a gem. My favourite: “I hate to cook. I find it incredibly tedious. Last night, I was peeling a cucumber and I was infuriated. Like, why am I peeling this cucumber? Why am I not in a restaurant, where they know how to peel a cucumber, and where I’m not doing it?” My other favourite: “Until this happened I was one of the few people still shaking hands, because people were hugging….I was so shocked when hugging started. I thought, Are you out of your mind? I would put my hand out and people would go in for a hug. This is when someone’s introducing you to someone. I think it would be great if hugging stopped. Hugging apparently is less virus-producing than shaking hands, but hugging is its own kind of contagion.” I feel seen.

-I missed the news that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are expecting their second child. Yay for them!

Joaquin Phoenix‘s GQ cover story is just a mashup of a bunch of old interviews. I know everyone’s social distancing but phoners are still a thing.

-Modern Family bowed out last night with its highest ratings in three years.

-I’ve downloaded Quibi but haven’t really watched anything yet. I have, however, listened to the Extra Hot Great podcast and this rant about Liam Hemsworth‘s new show, Most Dangerous Game.

-The trailer for Netflix’s The Half of It looks wonderful. A straight-A student who’s coming to terms with the fact she’s gay becomes best friends with a popular jock.
