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.

Ansel Elgort Gets Naked for Charity

Ansel Elgort trended today because he posted a nude photo to Instagram with the caption “OnlyFans link in bio”, but instead of sending people to a paid porn site, the link goes to a GoFundMe page for buying meals for Brooklyn hospital staff. That’s both cringingly thirsty and kind of clever.

-Congrats to the internet’s favourite celebrity couple Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, who welcomed their new baby girl.

J.Lo and A-Rod are trying to buy the New York Mets. That’s one way to combat self-isolation boredom, I guess.

Tiffany Haddish was on Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Red Table Talk and got blunt about what she’s looking for in a guy — and it isn’t what you think: “I prefer small penises because I feel like small ones respect you. They’re kind. They buy you nice gifts. They take you nice places. They’ll come and clean your house; fix your cars for you. Small penises are penises of service. Big penises just do whatever they want to do.”

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post on COVID-19, animal welfare and wet markets.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated the Queen’s 94th birthday with a video call with her and Baby Archie.

-I don’t really know much of Rafe Spall besides the fact that he’s that guy from Life of Pi and Just Mercy, but goodness this is a great interview. On losing weight for roles, he said “I understand it, but you’ve got to be very careful with peddling the basic idea that being thin is happy and being fat is unhappy because all my problems are the same, regardless of the size of my waistline… When I’m extremely disciplined and not eating anything my wife doesn’t find me attractive – what she finds attractive is eating together and the sensuality of food. Look, eating nothing but fish and salad for 12 weeks is the opposite of sex.”

-I’m assuming this live tweet of Anna Kendrick‘s sex doll show on Quibi is far more entertaining than the show could ever be.

Andie Macdowell and her daughters Rainey and Margaret Qualley wanted to go to a closed park so badly, they crawled under a fence to get in. Tom Brady also tried to work out in a closed park. Celebrities, “closed” signs apply to you too!

Rainn Wilson had his Office costar Jenna Fisher on Instagram Live, and she showed off her Dundee Awards.

Jimmy Fallon quizzed costars Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer on which one knows more about the other. Spoiler alert: it didn’t go well.

Kate Hudson celebrated her 41st birthday with a social distancing party.

Kate Beckinsale isn’t taking any criticism about the age gap between her and Goody Grace.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back at it in the Trip to Greece trailer.

Demi Lovato is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. In the candid interview, she talks about her ex Wilmer Valderrama getting engaged (“I’m really happy for him and I wish him nothing but the best, but we’re not in each other’s lives, haven’t spoken in a long time”), and how she’s no longer in contact with the Jonas Brothers or Selena Gomez (“I talk to Miley [Cyrus]. She’s awesome, and I love her to death and always will, always have. But I think she’s kind of the only one from that era that I still stay in touch with”).

-Alison Brie opens up about her battle with depression and body dysmorphia in the new issue of Women’s Health.

Kate Beckinsale is apparently dating 22-year-old Canadian musician Goody Grace. God, I heart her.

Bruce Willis is isolating with ex-wife Demi Moore, their three adult daughters and their partners. But Emma Heming, his current wife of 11 years and mother of his two young daughters, doesn’t seem to mind, posting on their photos “love and miss you guys.”

Bob Iger has resumed his role as Disney’s CEO, and everyone’s questioning the timing.

Amy Schumer revealed that she’s changed her son’s name. “Do you guys know that Gene, our baby’s name is officially changed? It’s now Gene David Fischer. It was Gene Attell Fischer, but we realized that we, by accident, named our son ‘Genital’.”

-I played Quiplash with friends over Zoom last night, and we were so much better at it than Jimmy Fallon and his guests.

-Even Anna Wintour is wearing trackpants these days, so don’t feel so bad about your work-from-home style, guys.

Brad Pitt’s episode with the Property Brothers on Celebrity IOU aired last night on HGTV. In it, he helps them transform the garage of his longtime makeup artist, Jean. “She’s family, we’re like brother and sister. We bicker. We fight. If I’m going to be on the West side, I’ll often pit stop here, get a nap on the couch. Many people do. Jean’s just one of those nucleuses that we all orbit around,” he said.

-Grey’s Anatomy was going to kill off a major character in the season finale, but last week’s episode served as its hasty season finale since the show shut down production, so some actor gets to keep their job for a little while longer.

-Here’s our first look at Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune, starring Timothee Chalamet, Oscar Isaac and Zendaya.

Ryan Reynolds shouted out the Ottawa neighbourhood he used to live in (Vanier) with donation to the food bank.

-EW’s photoshoot with the Supernatural guys to celebrate the show ending is very cute.

-This parody of what celebs are like on IG Live right now is perfection.
