Crazy Rich Asians’ Constance Wu Covers Marie Claire Malaysia

Constance Wu Covers Marie Claire Malaysia

-Crazy Rich Asians star Constance Wu wears Michael Kors on the cover of Marie Claire Malaysia. She’s lovely but I didn’t even recognize her in that second photo (at first glance I thought it was Chloe Bennet).

Jennifer Garner is poised to make a big splash with her Alias-reminiscent thriller Peppermint, so I really wanted her to BRING IT at the premiere. But this dress is a wrinkly mess.

-The Guy Ritchie-directed live-action Aladdin is reportedly doing reshoots because Disney wasn’t happy that they were using makeup to make the white actors look more Middle Eastern. So, they were trying to do brown face in 2018?!

-There was lots of good writing about the Louis CK comeback attempt yesterday, including from The Cut, The Daily Beast, and EW. I especially liked Rebecca Corry’s reflection on what has happened to her since she spoke out publicly about being one of his victims. But this account from two women who were actually at the show is a must-read: “It felt like there were a lot of aggressive men in the audience and very quiet women…There were at least four to five females that I could see, and three or four of them were not having it. They were just looking at him, deadpan, straight, not having it.”  Oh, and this little nugget: during his set he made a joke about rape whistles: “When he said ‘rape whistle’ people were laughing, and I was just sitting there like ‘oh my fuck.’ This is so uncomfortable and so disgusting. Everyone around me was laughing. That was just depressing.”

-Meanwhile, Michael Ian Black says he “hears all of your voices” in response to his Twitter defense of Louis CK, and has made a donation to two charities.

-Also, SNL’s Michael Che is still trash.

-Good on Gwyneth Paltrow for having a sense of humour about her “thinking about dick” meme.

Kanye West finally answered Jimmy Kimmel‘s question about Trump: “He wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community. So, it’s something he’s going to work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”

-The second season of American Vandals may be about poo, but critics say the show isn’t shit.

Alec Baldwin announced he’s no longer taking on the role of Bruce Wayne’s father in the Joker movie, sighting “scheduling” conflicts.

-In a new podcast, Clayne Crawford reflected on being fired from Lethal Weapon TV show — and he’s clearly learned nothing. Instead of being humble and apologetic and trying to prove to prospective employers that he’s worth a shot, he went with this instead: “Hollywood is very sensitive, so I should not have screamed and yelled, right, because it’s a bunch of very delicate flowers out there.”

-Paramount’s high-profile Top Gun sequel – starring Tom Cruise and Miles Teller – is being pushed back a year, and will now hit theaters in June 2020 instead of next July.

Ethan Hawke is not wrong about superhero movies.

-It sounds like Shaun Majumder’s departure from This Hour has 22 Minutes was not pleasant.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx: still a thing.

-Aww man, why is Amandla Stenberg having to defend her new movie Where Hands Touch? I *just* bought tickets to it! (It’s from the director of Belle so I have high hopes.)

-Yes to the tuxedo dress Meghan Markle wore to Hamilton.

Rosamund Pike is addicted to war zones in the Marie Colvin biopic A Private War.

 

Breaking Bad Cast Reminisce About The Show

‘Breaking Bad’ Stars Reunite For 10th Anniversary Shoot

-The stars of Breaking Bad reunited for a special 10th anniversary cover for EW, and got adorably emotional talking about how lucky they were to land those roles. (Poor Dean Norris’ Hank didn’t make the cover photo cut, but he’s part of the video roundtable.)

-Speaking of great covers, Kendrick Lamar made the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair, in which he discusses everything from Kanye West to winning a Pulitzer Prize.

Scarlett Johansson denied a “demeaning” the infamous claim she once auditioned to date Tom Cruise. That rumour has been floating around for years; I wonder why she chose to speak up this time.

Angelina Jolie  dressed up all fancy for the Queen and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I don’t think she pulled it off.

-Top Gun 2 has narrowed its young lead casting down to Nicholas Hoult, Glen Powell and Miles Teller. Powell FTW, please!

-Undercover lovers Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are surrounded by rumours of a split, but her rep just said that it’s “100% untrue.” Wait, is this the first time that her rep is actually acknowledging the relationship? Momentous!

Portia de Rossi laughed off rumors that she and Ellen DeGeneres are headed for a divorce.

Drake‘s new album drops this long weekend. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Ty Dolla $ign tried to get a blind woman moved out of her seat on an Air Canada flight from Montreal to Ottawa because he said he was allergic to her seeing-eye dog. Good lord, that flight is under an hour!

Jeffrey Tambor has lost another gig following sexual misconduct allegations.

-MSNBC’s Joy Reid had a strong story about sexual assault claims against Russell Simmons and an Extra host. Then it got canned. This THR report dives deep into #MeToo, media, race and power.

-Tool frontman James Keenan has responded to those rape allegations, calling it a “despicable false claim.”

-I gave up on Netflix’s GLOW in the middle of season one not because I didn’t like it but because I got side-tracked, but the reviews of the new season are glowing.

Mark Hamill and Chris Evans’ nerdy Twitter exchange about light sabres made my day.

-Too good at goodbyes? Sam Smith and Brandon Flynn have reportedly called it quits after nine months of dating.

-Have you guys watched the Nanette comedy special on Netflix? It’s what everyone on my Twitter TL has been raving about this week.

-Unsurprisingly, that tabloid story about Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes expecting twins has been debunked.

Fox just ghosted on Adam Scott‘s sitcom Ghosted. It was the last non-animated comedy on its current schedule.

Azealia Banks has launched a GoFundMe to fund a lawsuit against Russell Crowe. “Crowe called me a n*****, choked me, and spat on me,” she writes on the page.

-Whatever (or wherever) Apple’s TV is going to be, their lineup is pretty damn solid.

Cate Blanchett and Jack Black star in the new trailer for kids’ flick The House with a Clock in its Walls.

Dawson’s Creek Cast Reunites for EW

dawsons-creek-reunion

-EW’s Dawson’s Creek reunion was the gift that kept on giving today. The four different covers! The photo shoot! The hour-long video interview with the cast! The GIFs! The quiz! The definitive proof that Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps are soulmates! Totally bliss.

-The Roseanne reboot debut last night and the ratings were insanely, staggeringly good — 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.1 demo. (For comparison, Will & Grace returned to 10M viewers and a 3.0 in the demo.) It set a ton of ratings records, including being the biggest sitcom telecast in three years. It even got bigger ratings that its series finale 10 years ago. So basically, expect TV studios to be rebooting every 90s show they can think of now…

-I liked this thread on how the show offers an unrealistic depiction of a Trump supporter.

Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series isn’t happening, and he doesn’t seem very happy about it.

These excerpts from Sean Penn’s new book can’t be real. And it includes a poem about #MeToo? Seriously, this can’t be happening.

-In a new BBC documentary, R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend claims he “trained” a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave. I don’t understand how we’re in the age of Time’s Up and yet his house has yet to be raided.

-So it’s possible that Corey Feldman wasn’t actually stabbed this morning after all?

-On Dax Shepard’s podcast (who knew that was a thing?!), Anna Faris says she regrets pretending to have a perfect marriage  on social media. “We intentionally cultivated this idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family.’ There were so many moments that were like that, but like anything on social media, you don’t post like, ‘Where the fuck is the toilet paper?’ or whatever. I think it’s a very hard forum to be genuine, and I think it does a disservice to people to not be.”

-I loved this thread on actors who are really good at making you believe in a romcom because of THE LOOK.

-Remember how Armie Hammer failed to get an Oscar nom and then he spent the next few months in sad-looking tracksuits? He says he’s moving on.

-I keep forgetting that The Americans returns tonight.  The reviews say the final season is great.

Amal Clooney is coming to Toronto for Luminato.

Amandla Stenberg is a teen with superpower in the The Darkest Minds trailer.
