Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Cardi B posted an IG video on the government shutdown: “I feel like we need to take some action. I don’t know what type of action, bitch, because that’s not what I do. But, bitch, I’m scared.” Chris Evans was loving it.

Rihanna is reportedly teaming up with the luxury brand LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton to launch her own fashion house.

Joe Alwyn has no plans to talk about his relationship with Taylor Swift in the press: “I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I? And then that is defined as being ‘strangely private.’ Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.”

Kevin McKidd recounted his ‘tearful’ post-Golden Globes reunion with former Grey’s Anatomy co-star Sandra Oh: “We hugged for a long, long time.”

-Whoa, Khloe Kardashian is unrecognizable now.

Louis C.K. hit the stage again and continued to double down on masturbation jokes, telling the crowd: “I like to jerk off, and I don’t like to be alone.” So, that’s swell.

Ernie Hudson says the original Ghostbusters cast is “in” for Jason Reitman‘s sequel.

-Netflix is claiming that it’s “revealing” the viewership for shows like You, Sex Education and more, but this is all kinds of shady.  They say Sex Education is on pace to be watched by 40 million member households within its first month — but it’s only been airing for 12 days.

-Meanwhile, I just started watching Sex Education and it’s a delight.

Ryan Reynoldsbirthday tweet to Betty White is very adorable.

Chris Hemsworth Talks Fatherhood and Finding His Voice

Chris-Hemsworth-GQ-Sept-2018

Chris Hemsworth is out here coming for the title of Best Chris with this new GQ cover story. (I knew it was going to be good when the writer tweeted that she “female-gazed” him.) He talks about prioritizing his family over his career, faking knowledge about wine, and why he wanted to loosen up for the third Thor movie: “The first one is good, the second one is meh. What masculinity was, the classic archetype, it just all starts to feel very familiar. I was so aware that we were right on the edge.”

Chris Evans also remains in the running due to tweets like this one.

Winona Ryder revealed that she thinks she and Keanu Reeves might be legally married (“We actually got married in Dracula. No, I swear to god I think we’re married in real life. In that scene, Francis [Ford Coppola] used a real Romanian priest. We shot the master and he did the whole thing. So I think we’re married”). Not surprisingly, Twitter exploded at the news.

Ben Affleck and 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton were photographed together again this weekend, so I guess that’s a thing.

Zoe Kravitz‘s story about Prince being too clingy and crimping her style when she was 18 is great.

-Yay for Crazy Rich Asians, which posted a better-than-expected weekend debut of $25.2-$26 million and a five-day launch of as much as $36 million, the best showing in three years for a rom-com and the best showing for any comedy in a year. Nearly 40 percent of the audience was Asian, because representation matters.

-Meanwhile, this is a great tidbit of how How Crazy Rich Asians got Coldplay’s ‘Yellow’ for a key scene. Director Jon M. Chu wrote the band to say “[The word ‘yellow’] has always had a negative connotation in my life … until I heard your song.”

-In a new profileIdris Elba talks about the “boundless ambition” that saw him go from “basically homeless” before The Wire to being invited to DJ this year’s royal wedding. He also talks about the surprise of proposing to Sabrina Dhowre, a model and Miss Vancouver 2014, despite previously swearing off marriage. “I just fell in love and want to be with that person for the rest of my life.”

-Forbes has released its annual Highest-Paid Actresses list, with Scarlett Johansson coming in at No. 1, and Gal Gadot making the cut.

John Krasinski‘s new Amazon show Jack Ryan is getting decent reviews, which I’m surprised by for some reason.

-Should I be watching AMC’s Lodge 49? It’s been airing for a few weeks but feels like everyone started tweeting about it all of the sudden. Wyatt Russell is adorable, after all.

Johnny Depp is claiming self-defense in response to that alleged on-set assault against a crew member. Ok.

-This is a good interview with Netflix’s VP of original programming about why their dramas are so often sluggishly paced (especially around the middle of the season) and why their comedies are more immune to this issue.

-These quotes from Michael Shannon on Trump are a thing of beauty.

-I knew I was going to love To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. I just knew it. But I didn’t know that my entire Twitter TL would also become obsessed with it. Tweets like this one made me smile all weekend. Or this one, where the writer of the book posted about how she made the stars re-enact iconic romcom moments when she was on set. And now everyone is obsessed with Lana Condor (who carries the movie) and Noah Centineo (who is about to explode; LA Time calls him the next Zac Efron, he was in the “Havana” music video, and he’ll next appear in a Netflix romcom called Sierra Burgess is a Loser on Sept. 7). The fact that they keep leaving flirty comments on each other’s IG posts is a bonus.

-Meanwhile, I like this piece on the movie’s outfits, and this one on how only one production company didn’t want to white-wash Lara Jean’s character.

-I enjoyed this interview with Kieran Culkin, who is killing it on Succession.

-Here’s the trailer for Outlaw King, the Netflix movie that’s going to open TIFF.
