Elizabeth Olsen Announces Marriage from the Bathroom

For Variety, Elizabeth Olsen did a video chat with Kaley Cuoco — and she called in from the bathroom, because her neighbor was doing construction and it’s the quietest room in her house. During the interview, she also let it slip that she’s married her longtime boyfriend Robbie Arnett. “I also just noticed that my husband put ‘Little Miss Magic,’ you know, the ‘Little Miss’ books? They’re these classic books, but magic because of WandaVision, because he’s such a fucking cutie.”

It was really, really, really severe. It was a problem.” He added that he still keeps in touch with Harry Syles. “I had a lovely phone call from Harry the other day. He was checking in on me. It’s almost as if some people have got a sixth sense about when you’re going through something and want to check in. He’s very much like that. He’s a lovely, lovely boy.”

-The first piece of Kanye West‘s Gap collection, a puffy blue jacket, sold out in a few hours.

Ali Larter has responded to former costar Leonard Roberts‘ essay about her poor treatment of him on the Heroes set with a half-ass apology: “I am heartbroken reading his perception of our relationship, which absolutely doesn’t match my memory nor experience on the show…I am truly sorry for any role I may have played in his painful experience during that time and I wish him and his family the very best.” So basically, she doesn’t remember it but oopsie if she offended.

-I’m surprised big names keep signing on to Facebook Watch shows, which have negative zero buzz. Cardi B is going to star in a new series called Cardi Tries ____, in which she becomes a ballet dancer, stunt driver, and firefighter.

Leah Remini has no time for people who are praising Tom Cruise’s on-set rant, reminding everyone that his ties to Scientology disqualify him from preaching safety. “Tom does not care about the families of his crew; this is all for publicity. Tom does not believe in family values. I mean, how anyone is falling for this is just mind-blowing.”

-Everyone’s digging the 2020 “love it, couldn’t wear it” fashion dog, including Sofia Vergara.

-Oof. David E Kelly’s response to criticism on how his new ABC Big Sky erases indigenous women is not great.

-I’m so confused about why Nancy Meyers‘ daughter got offended by the retrospective Vulture has been running on her mother’s movies this week. I’m equally confused by all the famous women who seem to agree with her. It’s not sexiest to praise the specificity of her mom’s work. I liked this take: “Costume design is an art and Nancy’s masterful use of clothing should be celebrated, not ignored.”

-The trailer for Walker, starring Jared Padalecki, actually looks ok?

Tina Fey says she thought she heard a man calling for help in the Hudson River, so she called the police. It turned out it was a guy who flipped a kayak in the Hudson and was floating north with no oar.

Frances McDormand starring in a Sarah Polley-directed film sounds like a dream.

-I very much agree with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s take here: “When theater comes back it’s going to be in conversation with technology in an entirely different way. I don’t think we go back to a world where a show premieres on Broadway, and then no one can see it unless they have $200.”

-My god, one of the Hanson brothers now has seven kids.

-It looks like Adele is recording new music. Huzzah!

-The royal family’s post-The Crown damage control continues with William and Kate’s holiday card and a People cover story on how Kate Middleton isn’t a pushover. Um, good for her?

-I was really surprised that when the Tom Cruise audio leaked last night, the immediate reaction seemed to be mostly “go, Tom!” I mean yes, we all want to yell at dummies who break covid protocols, but I just kept thinking about how awful it would be to have a boss who berates you like that in public. And the power imbalance of subordinates getting screamed at by one of the most powerful actors in the world is yucky. I’m sure it had to be said but I’m not sure that was the best way to say it, and if this audio leaked at any other time he would be stuck with a Christian Bale “get out of my eyeline!” level scandal.

George Clooney says he supports Cruise, though he might have handled it differently. “I think it doesn’t help necessarily to point to specific people in that way and do it that…but, you know, everybody has their own style. The people who were on that shoot will tell us more about it. I understand why he did it. He’s not wrong at all about that. You know, I just, I don’t know that I would have done it quite that personally, but I don’t know all the circumstances so maybe he had [done it differently] 10 or 15 times before.”
