-In her Cosmo cover story, Emma Roberts skirts questions about her split from Evan Peters (“I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended. It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience”), instead preferring to talk about what books she’s currently reading. Fair enough.

Kumail Nanjiani is the latest celeb to appear on Gay of Thrones in an episode that is way more enjoyable than the one they’re recapping.

-Speaking of the last episode of Game of Thrones, Jessica Chastain blasted the show for that Sansa moment, tweeting: “Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The little bird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.”

-Uh oh. Britney Spears’ mother believes her daughter is in such bad shape she’s requesting the court date over conservatorship be moved up to Wednesday.

-I spent a lot of time last night trying to figure out whether a Met Gala outfit was camp or not. Check out some of the most memorable outfits.

-Also, I can’t stop staring at this photo of Michael Urie on the Met steps.

-After years of trying to keep their relationship under wraps, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx made a rare public appearance at the Met Gala together.

-Every year the Met Gala has a “no selfies” rule, and every year celebrities break it.

-Yikes. When asked about the Michael Jackson doc Leaving Neverland, Madonna said “I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty.”

-In his newly released memoir, Common says he was molested as a child, and Laura Dern helped him process it on the set of The Tale.

-Some of Meghan Markle‘s family continue to be garbage people.

-This Tracy Morgan profile in the New Yorker is a trip. It seems like spending any amount of time with him would be both frustrating and fascinating.

George Clooney says he “hit the jackpot” with his wife and kids. Five years ago, I never would have thought that I’d be typing that sentence…

-Oh no. I was hoping Nicholas Brendon (Buffy’s Xander) had turned his life around recently, but he has been charged with felony domestic violence. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

-Get ready for soo many Avatars and Star Wars. Disney is now scheduling each franchise every other year, starting with Avatar 2 in 2021.

-Poor Channing Tatum. His passion project Gambit continues to remain in development hell.

-I kind of love that Chris Evans is having the best box office moment of his life, and still went to his high school reunion.

-In his cover story with AttitudeColton Haynes says he’s six months sober after battling drug and alcohol addiction. “In 10 years, there were maybe 25 days I didn’t drink,” he said, but admits he hit rock bottom last year following his divorce and the death of his mother. “I locked myself in a hotel room at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills for seven days and was found in my room with these insane bruises all over my body…I almost ruptured my kidney, ended up in the hospital, ended up in 5150 psyche hold. I was on such a destructive path that I could not function. I lost partial sight in my left eye for a while. I ended up having two seizures. I didn’t know any of this was happening until I was sober enough to remember it.”

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dispelled those split rumours by going for a walk in NYC. I have so many questions about their wardrobe. If it’s cold enough for both of them to be wearing toques, then why is she only wearing a thin jean jacket?

-Hmmm, this is interesting. Angelina Jolie may be pivoting away from her recent directing roles…to become a Marvel superhero. Which is not a bad career move (it’s actually pretty badass branding), but it’s a big diversion from where she’s been focused the last few years.

Wendy Williams was spotted out with her husband, even though he reportedly just welcomed a child with his alleged mistress.

Pete Davidson reveals he once offered to pick up the bill for Kanye West’s extravagant dinner – and then immediately regretted it. “Kanye kept ordering the whole entire time. I didn’t know he was coming and I already put my card down because I thought it would be just me and [Kid] Cudi. Then, [Timothee] Chalamet showed up and then Kanye showed up and I was like ‘Oh, f**k’. And then I had to book two more gigs in Ohio.”

-This is lovely: Jason Momoa was honoured by local First Nation residents with a traditional fish feast while filming in B.C.

-People who saw Us are really into Winston Duke’s thighs. I haven’t even seen the film and yet this makes a lot of sense to me.

Ariana Grande has created a stir with a highly restrictive photo agreement for her upcoming Sweetener tour that has news outlets crying foul.

Rashida Jones reflected on #MeToo and Time’s Up during a panel discussion this week: “For these movements, there’s always an inflection point, and so many inflection points that are started by black women are missed. I do believe there is some version of this country and our lives that would be different if people listened to black women.”

Julianna Margulies gave an interview to a French magazine and said that she hasn’t appeared on The Good Fight because they refused to pay her as much as she was getting before.

-Remember when cord cutting was supposed to save us so much money compared to having cable? With Apple joining Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, YouTube TV, CBS All Access (not to mention the upcoming streamers being launched by Disney, Warner Bros, etc), the streaming bubble is just about ready to burst. The Wall Street Journal nails it: “If you look at the market currently, the average consumer may have room to add a service or two but the ceiling of what a consumer will pay is soon reached.”

-It’s been a few years since I’ve seen The 100, but do they just keep finding new communities every season now? Is it like the YA version of The Walking Dead?

-The series finale of Broad City airs tonight. This final season has been fire.

-Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara get religious in the Mary Magdalene trailer.

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.

-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.
