-It’s really cold. Everyone’s miserable. We’re only halfway through the week. Let’s all cheer up by feasting our eyes on Chris Hemsworth’s Men’s Health spread, mm-kay?

Kevin Hart tweeted support for Jussie Smollett, and people were NOT having it.  It *is* pretty rich coming from someone who joked about beating his son if he were gay, and then wouldn’t apologize for it until forced to.

Drake went to McDonalds and reportedly handed two employees $10k in cash each.

-According to a new Deadline report, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are furious with Serenity’s film distributor after it posted the worst opening weekend numbers of their careers. They agreed to do a press blitz to save the film, but the distributor reportedly didn’t follow through with the accompanying marketing spend. Come to think of it, I don’t ever remember seeing a trailer or ad for it. It just came on my radar when critics started trashing its twist ending.

-The always-delightful Viola Davis explained menopause to Jimmy Kimmel.

Richard E Grant is so pure. His entire social media feed during this Oscar race has been aces, but these photos of him finding out that Barbra Streisand tweeted at him are the best.

Ariana Grande‘s fandom has uncovered so much about her upcoming album by sorting through vague clues that if I ever need to be defended in court, I want them to do it.

-Meanwhile, Ariana got a Japanese tattoo on her palm that she thought spelled “7 rings” but actually spells “BBQ grill.” At least she’s laughing about it.

-Newly unsealed documents in Kesha’s ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke show that Lady Gaga stood firm in her support of the singer during a September 2017 deposition. This part where she told off Dr. Luke’s lawyer made me cheer: “Why on earth would this girl tell the entire world that this happened? Why on earth? Do you know what it’s like for survivors? Do you know what it’s like to tell people? Don’t you roll your eyes at me. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

-Universal is the first studio to accept the 4% challenge to hire women directors.

-The set of NCIS: New Orleans continues to be overrun with issues. An exec producer on the show, Adam Targum, has been fired. Sources told Vulture that Targum “bullied” people on set and that the HR department was told that several members of the writing staff had issues with him.

-This is a fun piece on what it’s like to consume Green Book by reading think pieces about it instead of actually seeing it.

-Hurray! When the new season of Killing Eve drops on the BBC on April 7, we won’t have to wait for it to come here because AMC will air it at the same time.

Timothée Chalamet grooving to a deep cut from Mariah Carey is a mood.

-Millennium studio chief Avi Lerner, who called an exposé accusing director Bryan Singer of raping teens “fake news,” is clarifying his comments. His big defense? He OK’d his original statement without reading it first. Oh, and he says no one in Hollywood has complained about his statement, he’s standing by it, and he’s not convinced about the accusations against Singer. No one’s going to touch this Red Sonja movie with a 10-ft pole.

-In another depressing twist, Singer stands to make $40 million off Bohemian Rhapsody, even though the film’s entire Oscar campaign is built around trying to make everyone forget he is the credited director.

-I really like this casting announcement for Netflix’s You. She was great in The Haunting of Hill House.

-Journalist Jim DeRogatis and filmmaker Dream Hampton opened up about their lonely, often dangerous pursuit of the R. Kelly story.

-In her new Vogue cover story, Reese Witherspoon talks about using her producing power to create strong roles for women and how she learned to own her success: “I used to hide my Oscar but then I was like, ‘Why shouldn’t I put it out here in the living room?'”

Lady Gaga has finally apologized for working with R Kelly after getting lots of pressure to do so. (It’s a little strange that she invokes the “younger self” bit since it was only 5 years ago and by then the rumours about Kelly were widely known, but at least it’s something.)

-French band Phoenix has also apologized for working with him.

Chris Pine and Patty Jenkins talk about their new TNT series in the latest issue of Variety, and Pine remains as charming as ever. I especially liked the part where he talks about playing a supporting role against a female lead, like in Wonder Woman: “Being in the film and supporting a woman doing that job is kind of a dance between ego and soul. I’m not too proud to admit it and say that at times, I’d have 30-minute conversations with Patty; I’d look at her, and she was wonderfully patient. I’d realize it had abso-f—ing-lutely nothing to do with me.”

-This is a good piece on how Bradley Cooper seems to simultaneously inspire awe an irritation by the way he plays the game.

-Not playing the Oscar game well are the men behind Green Book, who are increasingly showing their asses.

-God bless Terry Crews. He called out Kevin Hart for his reaction to the outrage over his anti-gay tweets. “The truth is, Kevin, you’re not being attacked. The truth is you have to just acknowledge what went on and acknowledge the pain of other people.”

Terry‘s show Brooklyn Nine-Nine debuts at its new home on NBC tonight.

-I liked this interview with various movie, TV and music critics on if there’s any value in writing really harsh reviews.

-There’s a lot of thirsty tweets going around about Penn Badgley‘s stalker character on You, and I love that the actor keeps reminding people that his character is a murderous psycho that you should not be lusting over.

-Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker is clapping back at Bandersnatch critics: “F*ck off, do something else.”

-This NYT list of the 20 best dramas since the Sopranos is surprisingly great. Enlisted! Veronica Mars! Jane the Virgin!

-Fox’s new show The Passage is getting decent reviews, which is good cause I’ve been missing Mark Paul Gosselaar on my TV screen since Pitch was cancelled.

-A new trailer for Punisher season 2 has arrived, and while I’m not here for Frank kissing someone who isn’t Karen, I’m definitely here for Frank begrudgingly becoming a father figure to an unruly teenage girl.

-Things get tense when terrorists take over a hotel in the new trailer for Hotel Mumbai starring Armie Hammer and Dev Patel.

-The trailer for Velvet Buzzsaw with Jake Gyllenhaal is beyond bizarre and I kind of love it?

 

Melissa McCarthy Calls Out Billy Bush in New Interview

-In her InStyle cover storyMelissa McCarthy recalls being subjected to a terrible interview by someone who sounds a lot like Billy Bush. “I do remember another interview I did for Bridesmaids with somebody who later lost his job for a conversation he had on a bus with someone else. I won’t mention names, but just think about it. He kept asking, ‘Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?’ He was like, ‘Oh, your tremendous size, you can actually work?’ I just remember all the blood drained out of me. I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ ”

In her new People cover story, Nicole Kidman says she knew she wanted to marry Keith Urban after just six months of dating. “It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York. That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.'”

-Here’s how Kevin Hart worded his second apology: “Once again, Kevin Hart apologizes for his remarks that hurt members of the LGBTQ community. I apologize.” He added it’s not his “life dream” to become an LGBTQ ally. That’s swell.

-Meawhile, it seems that the Academy has resigned itself to the fact that the Oscars will air with no host for the first time in 30 years, according to Variety.

-In his new Hollywood Reporter cover storySamuel L Jackson admits he was a functioning crack addict for 15 years. “The whole time I was using, sure, I had a good reputation. I showed up on time, I did my lines. I was great. But there was something that was keeping me from getting to that next place.”

Kit Harrington says the cast was pretty much over it while filming the final GoT season.

-Marvel is making a TV show about Vision and Scarlet Witch for Disney’s new streaming service, with Paul Bettany and Elizabeth Olson expected to reprise the roles they originated on the big screen.

Rosario Dawson is reportedly dating Senator Corey Booker.

-Just months after being pushed out of Disney and Pixar, Skydance Media has hired alleged sexual harasser John Lasseter. God, how deflating must that be for the women who work there?

Mariah Carey has settled the lawsuit with former manager Stella Bulochnikov, who sued the singer for sexual harassment after working with her for about three years.

-Woah. Jordan Peele is taking on the Lorena Bobbit story in a new documentary for Amazon Prime. Here’s the first trailer.

-Oof, Nina Dobrev‘s new CBS sitcom is getting panned.

-The Green Book crew continue to make things worse, not better with every interview.

Natasha Lyonne keeps dying then subsequently reliving her birthday in the trailer for Netflix’s Russian Doll, produced by Amy Poehler. Critics who’ve already screened it are loving it.

Anthony Mackie and Margaret Qualley are the last survivors on a toxic earth in the trailer for Netflix’s new sci-fi film IO.
