Zendaya Spins a Web at Spider-Man Premiere

Zendaya’s look at the big Hollywood premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home was total perfection.

-Despite the tangled web of a plot that sees Peter Parker delve into the confusing multiverse, Spider-Man: No Way Home seems to have won over critics.

-The predictions for the box office seem insane, considering that the new variant will likely keep some people home this weekend. Industry experts are predicting a $150 million debut.

Ben Affleck told Howard Stern that he began to drink more as his marriage to Jennifer Garner unraveled. “That was part of why I started drinking alcohol — I was trapped. I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I am not happy. What do I do?’ What I did was drink a bottle of scotch on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution…I probably still would’ve been drinking [if I stayed].” God, I hope his kids don’t ever read that…

Kim Kardashian wants to speed up her divorce from Kanye West. In new court filings, she said, “I have been attempting to settle our dissolution with [West] since I filed for divorce in February 2021. I have requested several times that [he] agree to bifurcate and terminate our marital status. [He] has not responded to my request.”

-Meanwhile, a source tells People that Kanye West “isn’t giving up without a fight.”

Keanu Reeves talked to Stephen Colbert about the origins of the Sad Keanu meme. “I’m just eating a sandwich! I was thinking… I had some stuff going on. I was hungry.”

-General Hospital’s Ingo Rademacher is suing ABC for firing him over his refusal to get vaccinated. “My body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me.”

Billie Eilish says she got covid a few months ago. “I want it to be clear that it is because of the vaccine I’m fine. I think if I weren’t vaccinated, I would have, like, died, because it was bad. When I say it was bad, I more just mean that it felt horrible…I still have side effects. I was sick for, like, two months almost. This was in August, a couple months ago.”

Dakota Johnson explained her Architectural Digest video that featured a big bowl of limes on her kitchen counter despite her saying she’s allergic to them. “You know, they have somebody who is super talented come in and make your house look amazing. So they put this big bowl of limes, which I [first] saw while we were filming. And it was funny. So I talked about it because who has a bowl of only limes?”

Avril Lavigne is turning “Sk8er Boi” into a film. I’d watch it.

Patti Harrison, Simon Rex, and Taylour Paige just became first-time Spirit Awards nominees. I’ve seen two of those performances (Harrison in Together Together and Rex in Red Rocket), and both are worthy of recognition.

Flavor Flav was nearly killed by a boulder while driving.

-Vulture interviewed a doctor about all the things that went wrong on And Just Like That.

J. Smith-Cameron was asked about Succession costar Jeremy Strong‘s now infamous profile, and her response was perfect. “I didn’t feel the New Yorker piece was an attack on him. I don’t know whether that’s me just being a little insensitive. I felt like it was trying to be very objective about what seemed like very extreme practices. I thought Jessica Chastain and Aaron Sorkin coming to his defense was wonderful, but I didn’t think it was really necessary because I didn’t think he was exactly maligned. It’s not a puff piece, certainly. It’s Jeremy saying in his own words what his values are and what his process is.”

-A judge upheld assault charges against Tory Lanez for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion.

-Someone created a trailer for Tick Tick Boom with the Muppets and it’s so perfect.

-This is an excellent interview with Kathleen Turner. I especially like her take on method acting and how she doesn’t include it in the acting class she’s teaching at NYU. “My course is called ‘Practical Acting: Shut Up and Do It’…All that ‘call me by my character name’ stuff? Fuck it. Isn’t the idea that we’re supposed to find our own unique voice? How can you achieve that by forcibly imitating anyone else? I’ve never understood that. Your job, through school and throughout your life, should be to learn how *you* work best as an actor.”

-The cast for Apple+’s Afterparty is incredible. This trailer intrigues me.

-Speaking of upcoming TV series that look amazing, here’s the new trailer for HBO’s The Gilded Age.

-Holyyyy sheetttttt, this trailer for Everything Everywhere All At Once starring Michelle Yeoh is everything.

Ryan Reynolds Rehabs Peleton

Ryan Reynolds and his ad agency pulled together that Peleton ad in response to And Just Like That in only 48 hours. Reynolds did a quick Aviation Gin ad when that cringey holiday Peloton commercial went viral a couple years ago, so it makes sense that they would come to him for some instant brand rehabilitation. (Don’t watch if you’re not caught up with the Sex and the City revival, obvs.)

Tom Holland and Zendaya are super cute here, talking about how they can’t be in the kitchen at the same time because her cooking style is haphazard, while he likes to precisely follow recipes.

Britney Spears posted a bunch of screengrabs of her notes app which contained basically stream of conscious thoughts about hot chocolate and Christmas shopping, but she did make some pointed comments about her infamous 2003 interview with Diane Sawyer.

-I’m not sure what the baby bar exam is, but Kim Kardashian says she passed it.

-God, that Succession finale was so good. I kept thinking about how Kieran Culkin said he and Jeremy Strong disagree about whether the show is a comedy or a drama, and how that scene in the parking lot perfectly embodied that.

-Meanwhile, Jeremy Strong‘s celeb friends keep rushing to “defend” him over that completely innocuous magazine profile. Aaron Sorkin, Adam Mckay and Anne Hathaway weighed in over the weekend, which inadvertently kept it in the news cycle. Are stars really so far removed from the profiles of 10-20 years ago that they think any article that isn’t incredibly fawning is a hit piece? That New Yorker profile did more to humanize Strong than any other interview I’ve read with him. Does everyone in Hollywood forget when celebs weren’t media trained within an inch of their lives, and profiles weren’t just PR fluff pieces? They should all revisit Jennifer Lopez’s 1998 Movieline interview (in which she slams Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, and more) to remember how these things used to go.

-Everyone’s guessing Adam Mckay and Will Ferrell for this blind item, which seems crazy.

-Any movie that isn’t a superhero flick seems to be struggling at the box office (and we are, after all, still in a pandemic) but West Side Story’s returns were bad enough to surprise people.

Olivia Colman inadvertently mocked Jack Whitehall’s acting when they both appeared on the Graham Norton Show. God, I love her.

Keanu Reeves also appeared on that episode of GNS — and forgot the name of the movie he was promoting.

-Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves and his Bill & Ted costar Alex Winter has a double date this weekend.

Armie Hammer’s lawyer told People: “I can confirm that Mr. Hammer has left the treatment facility and is doing great.”

-The Ben Affleck/Ana de Armas erotic thriller Deep Water is being released after all. It’s coming to Hulu in the US and Amazon Prime elsewhere. Does this mean they get to skip the awkward press tour?

-I missed this video of Adele doing a makeup tutorial with NikkieTutorials. I love this as a promo tour stop!

Elon Musk was named TIME’s ‘Person of the Year’ and nobody is happy about it.

Drake and Kanye West put their beef aside to forces for a much-anticipated benefit concert in Los Angeles last week — and everyone was talking about how Ye outshined Drake.

-It’s interesting to see Station Eleven make some Best of 2021 TV lists, seeing as it just debuts this week.

-I watched The Hating Game this weekend and was pleasantly surprised, given the buildup I had in my head. And the reviews are good!

Susan Sarandon is the queen of country music in the trailer for Fox’s Monarch.

-The gang returns to Hogwarts in the first full trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore.

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss Reunite for The Matrix 4

The-Matrix-4

-I love this EW spread on Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who discuss their new Matrix movie and their 20-plus years of friendship. “We’ve been through this experience together as partners. The only way I can describe it is like a soul friendship.”

Zendaya and Tom Holland made their red carpet debut as a couple last night.  I adored her archive Roberto Cavalli dress!

-The Gotham Awards were last night, giving us a better idea of what’s shaping up to have Oscar buzz. Maggie Gyllenhaal won three awards for her directorial debut, The Lost Daughter, as did Apple’s CODA.

-Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart was honoured with the Performer Tribute Award.

-I guess that DeuxMoi blind was right and Shawn Mendes’ breakup song is coming tomorrow.

Rihanna was honoured in her native Barbados during its presidential inauguration, with the Prime Minister calling her “the national hero of Barbados.”

-Meanwhile, there’s lots of rumours flying around about Rihanna being pregnant but it doesn’t sound legit.

-The story of Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s falling out is epically sad. Dudes just won’t talk about their feelings, huh?

-I’m loving that Ben McKenzie is sounding the alarm about cryptocurrency. Ryan Atwood grew up good!

-Oh no! The NFT craze has gotten to Harry Styles.

-Love is dead. Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos and Jasmine Cephas Jones have broken up after 6 years together, and it sounds like it might be messy.

-Speaking of messy splits, Aaron Carter and fiancée Melanie Martin have broken up a week after their son’s birth, with him tweeting “I was deceived and lied to. I can’t believe she betrayed [me] this way.”

Adele announced a 12-weekend residency at Caesars Palace in Vegas.

-Bruised must be doing well on Netflix: Halle Berry just struck a multi-picture deal with the streamer.

-Kevin Can F**k Himself will come to an end with its second season.  It’s too bad — it felt like the show was finding itself at the end of last season.

Britney Spears is really happy about lighting candles. Whatever works!

-This is perfect casting: Nic Cage is making his big studio return, signing on to play Dracula opposite Nicholas Hoult‘s Renfield in Universal’s new monster movie.

-I’m surprised how many critics who’s opinions I usually align with are raving over West Side Story.

-I don’t really care if it makes me basic or local or whatever; I’m increasingly looking forward to And Just Like That with each new trailer.
