Daisy Ridley Covers British GQ

-I don’t know why British GQ styled Daisy Ridley like a mechanic, but I’m kind of here for it? I also dig her comments about royalty: “I’m going to tell you something so shocking for Americans but not Brits; I don’t massively care about the royal family. I am not a royalist. Buckingham Palace is great but it’s an unused building, isn’t it? The other day, there was a story that the Queen uses six rooms in the palace. Six. How is that a good thing? It’s prime real estate.”

-I was really worried when I saw that Princess Anne was trending this morning, but it turns out it’s just because she’s a badass. She was part of the conversation with Trudeau in which he and other world leaders mocked Trump, and then was scolded by the Queen when she refused to meet with him. I think I love her.

Tom Hanks, Shia LaBeouf, Robert De Niro, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx and Adam Sandler take part in THR’s drama actors roundtable, and it’s a pretty decent discussion (though De Niro barely talks). I like Hanks’ view on comedy: “Can you be funny if you grew up with a built-in swimming pool in your backyard? I don’t think you can. If you grew up being able to swim any time you wanted to, you experienced none of the shortcomings of life that you turn into self-deprecation. You can’t do it.”

Kesha is throwing her name into the mix of stars who have entered the cosmetics world with the launch of her makeup line, Kesha Rose Beauty.

Camila Morrone has no problem with her 23-year age gap with boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. “There’s so many relationships in Hollywood⁠—and in the history of the world⁠—where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

Jennifer Lopez is hosting SNL this weekend, and I wish they’d given her a better promo.

-Bad news: that Michael Jackson musical appears to be going forward, and it will be “a part-puppet show in which the late singer’s alleged history of child sex abuse is blamed on a glove-shaped alien forcing Jackson to feed on boys.” Good news: despite earlier reports, rep for Johnny Depp says that he and his company are not producing or involved in any way.

-This is terrible: Mena Massoud says he couldn’t get an audition after starring in Aladdin, which made $1B.

-Riverdale costars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton are no longer dating…for now.

-If I currently looked like Kate Beckinsale does at 46, I’d be unapologetic about posing in a bikini too.

Daniel Craig is back as Bond in the No Time to Die trailer. I’m loving that Léa Seydoux is in this. I’ve only seen her in weird French movies and I love her.

Oprah Interviews Jennifer Lawrence for The Hollywood Reporter

Jennifer Lawrence talked about what it was like to be interviewed by Oprah for the new issue of THR: “I went to her house, which was just insane. I left crying. I called my parents. It was just life-changing.” The interview isn’t ground-breaking, but she talks about wanting to meet Trump (“I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face.”). Also, I love that she calls it “Twittering.”

-Oh my goodness, I love this Nicole Kidman cover.

-Time named the “silence breakers” their person of the year. People have a lot of issues with Taylor Swift’s inclusion on the cover. I don’t hate it because of how she stood up for herself (and women in general) in her lawsuit with that DJ, but I agree that I would have loved to see Kesha, Tarana Burke, Terry Crews or Gabrielle Union in that cover spot instead.

Ron Pearlman, Michael Rapaport and Alec Baldwin are all showing their true colours, claiming that John Oliver shouldn’t have made Dustin Hoffman uncomfortable by grilling him in a professional setting. You know what else is uncomfortable? Being sexually harassed in a professional setting. It’s always the right time to talk about it. Not talking about this stuff in public is how Hollywood found itself where it is now.

-Whoa. Jeffrey Tambor now says he has not quit Transparent and has no plans to do so.

-The two reporters at the NYT who first covered the Weinstein story have published a fascinating followup about the complicity machine that he built. It’s full of crazy tidbits, from publications that would suppress stories in exchange for star access, to a gossip columnist he hired to dig up dirt on celebs which he would give tabloids in exchange for them not writing about him, to Lena Dunham‘s claim that that she urged Hilary’s campaign to distance themselves from him by saying “Harvey’s a rapist and this is going to come out at some point.”

-Authorities appear to have found audio that verifies Corey Feldman‘s claims that he spoke to the police in 1993 and identified his alleged industry sexual abusers.

Beyoncé made a surprise appearance at the the Sports Illustrated Awards last night to present Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

-The early reviews for Steven Spielberg‘s The Post suggest this thing is going to crush the Oscars.

Ryan Reynolds will star as Detective Pikachu in a Pokemon movie. What?

-Sandra Bullock is previewing the all-female Oceans 8 film in the new issue of EW.

-This photo of James McAvoy has pretty much set Twitter on fire.

Fergie interrupted Armie Hammer on stage at a charity event and it was super uncomfortable.

Mariah Carey reportedly got a $5-10 million settlement from her billionaire ex-fiance for wasting her time. Is that how that works? Man, I have so many people in my life I need to sue…

Gal Gadot says the fictional character she most identifies with is Borat. (My favourite answer to that question is Amy Pascal’s: “Gillian Anderson’s Stella Gibson in The Fall. She fucks everybody and wears these gorgeous silk shirts and is really tough and smart.”)

Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman are doing a crafting show? Yes, please!

-Here’s the first trailer for Black Mirror season 4, which debuts Dec 29 on Netflix — just around the time you’ll be looking to escape your family!

Harrison Ford Interview Goes Viral

-I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen Harrison Ford laugh this much. He should only be interviewed by this woman forever.

-Holy crap, all those whispers about Harvey Weinstein might actually be published soon?!?   UPDATE:  The NYT was the first one to drop an article and OH MY GOD.

-Wow, I didn’t even recognize Winona Ryder on the cover of Marie Claire UK. Her face is great — why screw with it in Photoshop?

-The teens from Stranger Things might be dating and I’m totally shipping it.

Kesha once again praised Taylor Swift for being supportive throughout her legal battle with music producer Dr. Luke

-Jesus, now the guy who played Standford on SATC is dragging Kim Cattrall. This just gets better and better! (For the record, I’m still #TeamKim.)

Justin Theroux would like his neighbour to stop bugging him. Or at least wear pants.

Ariana Grande talked about about touring after the “traumatic” Manchester bombing  in a new interview with Coveteur.

Kate Winslet revealed her The Mountain Between Us co-star Idris Elba has “a thing for feet“. I can work with that…

Oprah and Ellen went grocery shopping together, which went about as well as you’d expect.

Julia Roberts looks amazing on the new cover of Harper’s Bazaar.

-Meanwhile, Julia managed to act out 26 of her films in less than 10 minutes on James Corden‘s show.
