Emily Blunt Flies High on Vogue

Emily Blunt Vogue Cover Mary Poppins

-I kind of wish Emily Blunt’s Vogue cover wasn’t in character, but her doing 73 Questions in the magazine’s office has a very cute Devil Wears Prada vibe (complete with a great surprise cameo).

James Corden recruited Noah Centineo in an “All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” parody called “To All the Guests I’ve Loved Before.” I was legit shipping them by the end of this. That’s the power of Centineo!

-Also on Corden’s show, Busy Philipps called out Centineo for ghosting her friend, which he awkwardly laughed off. But TMZ reports that at actor’s team did some damage control and got the segment edited down for the YouTube version so that it wouldn’t damage his “good boy-next-door image.”

-First she was trolling for interviews, now it’s endorsement deals. Lindsay Lohan needs a team.

Ashton Kutcher says Mila Kunis scheduled his bday party at the bar in Thousand Oaks that was the scene of a mass shooting. “Only reason we are alive is the shooter chose a different night.”

Adam Driver may have managed to keep the fact that he and his wife have a son a secret for two years, which is some Jedi mind-trick goodness.

Bill Murray intervened after a male fan pushed his female friend at Sydney Airport.

Hilary Duff can’t stop gushing about drinking a planceta smoothie — no matter how much we wish she would.

Viggo Mortensen has apologized after using the n-word at a Green Book panel.

-The Spice Girls are now saying that they never officially asked Victoria Beckham to be part of the reunion. Sure, let’s go with that.

-Meanwhile, no one is more excited for the Spice Girls reunion than Emma Stone. No. One.

-Did The Queen and Meghan Markle have a tense exchange over her wedding tiara?

Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he and Dame Judi Dench once misbehaved at Buckingham Palace.

John Mayer wants to assure everyone that he’s not a dick anymore. “I can tell you for sure that I haven’t been a dick in many years. That’s a really outdated take.” Well, I’m convinced!

-At least 8 shots were fired in an apparent drive-by on set of a music video in Beverly Hills featuring Tekashi 6ix9ine, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj50 Cent shared photos of the damage.

Ezra Miller dressed up like a fancy dalek at the Fantastic Beast premiere.

-Meanwhile, the reviews for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are pretty bleak, hovering around 58% rotten.

-The Affair is doing a 20-year jump into the future, with Anna Paquin joining the cast as Joanie. I guess that’s one way to get around the fact that most of your regulars have jumped ship.

-The first footage from Luther’s new season is here. It’s only supposed to be a couple of episodes but Ruth Wilson is rumoured to be returning and I cannot wait!!

Natalie Portman: No Longer a Manic Pixie Dream Girl

natalie-portman-vanity-fair

-In her new Vanity Fair cover story, Natalie Portman talks about being involved in the #MeToo movement, looking back on her experience with Harvey Weinstein and the former costars who’ve accused him of misconduct (“Like the set of Beautiful Girls—every woman in that movie has come forward”), and how upset she is to have been part of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl wave.

Rami Malek thinks that viral video of him with a fan is “not that bad” — and I agree. We can’t just see actors in the wild and expect them to perform on cue like dancing monkeys.

-This look at how many chances Bryan Singer got with the Bohemian Rhapsody film is quite eye-opening. Oh, to be a white dude in Hollywood. (In response to the article, Singer released a statement to THR: “Any discussion about fights between myself and Rami Malek are simply an exaggeration of a few creative differences that were quickly resolved. This is normal on a film set. And I think the work speaks for itself.”)

-As interesting as this take is on Nicki Minaj and Cardi B‘s social media war is, I’m still exhausted by the whole thing.

Kanye West now says he’s distancing himself from politics: “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.” Sure.

-Netflix got the original cast of Sabrina the Teenage Witch to watch the new reboot and give their reactions, and it’s very funny. “I wasn’t allowed to take my clothes off!”

Justin Bieber shaved his head and instantly looked 3097% better.

-This takedown of Post Malone’s music is a thing of beauty: “Post Malone’s music is dead-eyed and ignorant, astonishingly dull in its materialism, an abandoned lot of creativity with absolutely no evidence of traffic in his cerebral cortex — and there’s also a negative side.”

Jesse L Martin is taking a leave of absence from The Flash this season due to a back injury he sustained during the summer hiatus. I figured something was up — in every scene so far this season he’s been conspicuously sitting down or leaning on something.

Louis C.K.’s latest standup show was met with a handful of protesters. During the show, the comedian said “They tell you that when you get in trouble you find out who your real friends are. It’s black people, it turns out. They’ll stick by you,” invoking a group of people whose allyship he seems to value, if not reciprocate.

-Hollywood stuntpeople say that the past several years have brought about a troubling change when it comes to safety, likely due to the huge increase in streaming content, which has led some productions and stunt coordinators to cut corners.

-I’m very curious to know how much control Barbra Streisand had over her Carpool Karaoke segment. I’m guessing A LOT.

-The director of Blue Is the Warmest Color has been accused of sexual assault in France. That film’s TIFF premiere was the most awkward screening I’d ever been to because the lead actresses refused to be on the stage at the same time as him (they said at the time they way he filmed sex scenes made them feel “like prostitutes”), so for the film’s intro he came out first, said his bit, and then left the stage so the actresses could come out.

-The Kiss Quotient is being adapted into a film, which I’m very excited about but also very curious how they’re going to do it because that book was *steamy*.

Sara Bareilles performs a soulful version of ‘Theodosia Reprise‘ for the latest Hamildrop and I’m not crying YOU’RE crying!

Rebel Wilson get meta in the rom-com spoof Isn’t It Romantic. I love everything about this trailer.

 

Kanye West Goes to Washington

Kanye West and Trump are both so outrageous that it’s hard to be surprised by anything they do anymore. But their meeting today at the White House was bonkers. What even is this video? Can we all agree that Kanye is just all about empty provocation these days and probably doesn’t even believe what he’s saying? I mean, should we even care about what anyone whose iPhone password is just a serious of zeroes really thinks?

-Now Kid Rock is at the White House. This day just keeps getting better and better…

-Wait, does People’s new Lady Gaga cover story not actually include a new interview with Lady Gaga?

-I am very much appreciating Steve Carell’s transition into a silver fox.

Selena Gomez is seeking treatment after an emotional breakdown following a couple of hospital stays stemming from kidney transplant complications.

Amandla Stenberg says Jennifer Lawrence taught her how to “pee in the woods” when they were shooting The Hunger Games. Is that…something you have to be taught?

Scarlett Johansson has reportedly landed a $15 million payday for a Black Widow movie.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Meredith Grey deserves better than Ted from How I Met Your Mother. I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy for years and still this angers me!

Ryan Adams is butthurt by Mandy Moore‘s comments about their marriage.

-I watched the second episode of A Million Little things and damn, that show is bad. As this thread points out, it’s gruesome and gross.

-I was working from home today so I caught all of Dakota Johnson‘s segment on Ellen. I can’t tell if there’s just not a lot of there there, or if she just has an incredibly dry sense of humour but…oof. The only part that was halfway amusing was when Ellen made fun of her for not inviting her to her birthday party, and she responded by making fun of Ellen for asking about the pregnancy rumours.

-I’m already won over by the premise of Rebel Wilson‘s new movie: she’s trapped in a romcom and wooed by Chris Hemsworth.

-About this photo of Emily Bett Rickards: 1) I love her character’s new look. Witness protection, I’m guessing? 2) I love even more that she appears to have no idea when her show actually airs. Arrow doesn’t come back until Monday.

Julia Roberts tries to help Lucas Hedges escape his drug-dealing past in the trailer for Ben Is Back. The film festival buzz about this one is that the first half is an emotional family journey, and then it takes a weird turn.
