Halle Berry covers Women’s Health to promote Bruised and talks about stepping into the ring to fight and stepping behind camera to direct. “When I realized I couldn’t find a director who saw this story like I saw it, I had a moment of reckoning. I finally realized that at this point in my life, I was ready. I had to take control. I said, ‘Okay, I’m going to work harder than I’ve ever worked.’ ”

Gugu Mbatha-Raw covers Variety UK and discusses the “illusion” of diversity on TV: “It’s very diverse in front of the camera, and people accept that…When you look at camera operators, sound engineers and everyone behind the scenes, it’s a very different picture.”

Adele Gives Good Face

2 images of Adele: one in a red blazer, and another in a black dress

-I adore this 80s-ish photoshoot with Adele for The Face. In the interview, she talked about her ex-husband, Simon Konecki and why she was so drawn to him. “I was like, ‘I’d be a f**king damn fool to walk away from this man being the father of my child compared to any other man that I encountered before or after up until recently, phew! I would’ve regretted that, forever.”

-Meanwhile, she told Apple Music that she isn’t making music for TikTok. “I’d rather cater to people who are on my level in terms of the amount of time we’ve spent on Earth and the things we’ve been through.”

-It’s happening. Sources tell E! News that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are indeed dating after they were photographed holding hands in Palm Springs. “He makes her laugh the entire time they are together and she is completely enthralled by him.” (People are amused/scandalized that she’s wearing Yeezys in the photos.)

-The Office’s Brian Baumgartner (who played Kevin) wrote a new book about the show, and in it John Krasinski talks about the only scene he pushed back on, which saw Jim make out with Pam’s replacement Cathy when Pam was on maternity leave. “That’s the only time I remember putting my foot down…I remember saying things that I never thought I’d say before, like, ‘I’m not going to shoot it.’ There is a threshold with which you can push our audience. They are so dedicated. We have shown such great respect to them. But there’s a moment where if you push them too far, they’ll never come back. And I think that if you show Jim cheating, they’ll never come back.”

Is Jennifer Garner Engaged?

Jennifer Garner hosted Judy Greer on Instagram Live to talk about sobriety and the whole convo was interesting (she calls her pal “J-Gers”), but all anyone can talk about is the sparkler on her ring finger.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were spotted out together yet again, this time at a NYC private club. I have no idea what’s going on with these two, but if we know about this, it’s because she wants us to know about this.

-Meanwhile, this piece on Pete Davidson being a rare straight male muse is fascinating. “Davidson has carved out a niche for himself as a master of the fleeting engagement: the person you meet on an app, see for a few months, then part ways with as though you’d never met. His flings resemble the sorts of ephemeral attachments that many of his fans are likely most familiar with. More common than love, quite possibly a waste of time, with the potential to be much more destructive, but hard to avoid, if you don’t want to be alone.”

Cardi B and Kal Penn‘s twitter exchange about her officiating his wedding is hella cute.
