Tom Holland’s Got Moves

Tom Holland does ballet? What can’t this kid do?

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello stepped out for a very paparazzi-friendly brunch this weekend. Hmmm. (They were also spotted away from the paps enjoying a late-night snuggle, so either they’re legit or they’re very committed to selling it.)

Sarah Jessica Parker says she once reported the inappropriate behavior of a male costar (a “very big movie star”) to her agent. Luckily, her agent didn’t ignore her. “Within hours everything had changed. He said to them, ‘If this continues, I have sent her a ticket, a one-way ticket out of this city and she will not be returning.'”

-This is an interesting look at why stars have no interest in hosting award shows anymore.

-I love that Princess Diana‘s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, were a big part of Archie’s christening.

-A co-star alleged actor Kip Pardue, who plays one of the dads in Marvel’s Runaways, masturbated without consent in front of her. SAG imposed a $6,000 fine, did not release the information to the industry and gave him the option of reducing the fine by 50% if he takes an online training course.

Wendy Williams returned to her talk show and denied romantic involvement with 27-year-old Marc Tomblin, who she was photographed in June. She also talked about her recent “plant-based lunch” with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Kris Jenner, and apologized for bailing on a dinner with Dr. Oz.

-Radiohead’s Thom Yorke stans Billie Eilish. He’s no fan of Sam Smith or Muse, tho.

Ryan Reynolds is joining Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot in Red Notice, an art heist movie which is moving from Universal to Netflix.  It’ll be Neflix’s most expensive movie to date.

-I really enjoyed the new season of Stranger Things — but I don’t believe for a second that that ending will stick.

-Also, Robin is an great new addition to the show. Ethan Hawke (the actress’ dad) is so proud on Instagram.

-Jaden Smith launched a pop up vegan food truck to serve the homeless.

Terry Crews is campaigning hard to play King Triton in the Little Mermaid live action adaptation, and I don’t hate it.

-A writer revealed that in 2002 she wrote a profile of Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair that included a mother and her two daughters talking about his inappropriate interest in underage girls, but Graydon Carter cut that from the story. This guy had a ton of people in high places protecting him. Now that he’s locked up, everyone’s wondering if there’s going to be any blowback on his famous friends, who include Trump, Kevin Spacey, Bill Clinton, Chris Tucker and Prince Andrew. The fallout from this one might be huge.

Renee Zellweger channels Judy Garland in the first full trailer for Judy, which feels less like a movie and more like a “for your consideration” reel.

Angelina Jolie is back to being a baddie in the Maleficent 2 trailer.

Who’s On Team Taylor?

-The Taylor Swift drama kicked into high gear over the long weekend. Swift has never owned her masters and her old music label just sold them to Justin Bieber‘s manager Scooter Braun, much to Swift’s chagrin. Now you’d think Swift would come off completely sympathetic here, since labels controlling artists’ original recordings is a ridiculous predatory relic of the music industry (remember when Prince wrote “slave” on his face and changed his name to a symbol? Or when Paul McCartney lost the rights to The Beatles’ catalog to Michael Jackson?). But Swift muddied the waters with her rebuttal by 1) saying she didn’t know about the sale (which seems unlikely, since her dad is on the label’s board and the head of the label says he texted her the night before the story broke), 2) bringing up all the Kanye West past drama and 3) using Tumblr, of all platforms, to make a statement. I get that a lot of her fans are still on it but this should have been positioned as a business story, not a fandom rallying cry. And now there’s talk that she’s liking anti-Bieber posts that have nothing to do with music rights. Remember when Swift used to be the best at controlling the message? Nowadays, even when she’s in the right (and she’s CLEARLY in the right on the masters issue) it’s not always easy to root for her. The fact that people are actually defending archaic music industry practices over her is a pretty stark sign of how far she’s fallen.

-Celebs are taking sides, with Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Sia defending Braun, and Halsey, Camila Cabello, Iggy Izalea, Cara Delevingne, Haim, and Brandon Urie on Team Swift.

Miley Cyrus just dropped a NSFW music video filled with messages like “feminist AF,” “virginity is a social construct,” and “my body my rules.”

-“Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X came out as gay over the weekend with his latest song, tweeting: “Deadass thought i made it obvious.”

Joshua Jackson was spotted looking cozy this weekend with Jodie Turner-Smith (who he also posted a sweet IG story with). But I thought he was spotted kissing another girl in a parking garage a couple of weeks ago?

Lindsay Lohan celebrated turning 33 by getting naked on Instagram. As you do.

-Wow. Kim Kardashian actually agreed to change her shapewear line’s name.

Dan Levy‘s goodbye post to Schitt’s Creek is so soft.

-It looks like James Franco might be getting pulled into the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp saga.

-I never thought I’d push for Harry Styles to play Elvis, but I’ll take him over Ansel Elgort or Miles Teller.

Louis Tomlinson wasn’t thrilled about that fanfiction scene in HBO’s Euphoria, in which a character read her fanfic about him and Harry Styles relieving stage-fright tensions through oral sex (which was accompanied by an animated depiction). He responded to fan’s tweets about it “I can categorically say that I was not contacted nor did I approve it.”

-It also seems like someone at HBO pretended to be a teen to infiltrate the fanfic community, which is gross.

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston keep teasing a new project, which is presumably the Breaking Bad movie.

-It’s amazing how charming Jake Gyllenhaal can be when he wants to be. (Full video is here.)

-This is a great profile on Linda Cardellini, who just keeps steadily, quietly doing good work.

-Enlisted is now streaming on Crackle. I wish it was Netflix, but it’s a start!

-The reviews for the new season of Stranger Things are very strong (though I’m a little concerned that there seems to be critical rumblings that Hopper has turned into a jerk).

-Here’s the first trailer Mindy Kaling’s adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral. It looks charming. I am charmed.

-There are so many articles lately about the summer box office meltdown. But Late Night and Booksmart should never have been summer releases, and Men In Black and Dark Phoenix were obviously re-written messes. This doesn’t seem confusing.

-Sadness: Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss has announced she’s leaving the band.

-A new Aziz Ansari stand-up special directed by Spike Jonze is coming to Netflix this month. Anyone wanna bet that he doesn’t even reference why he went away?

-Cult favorite TV show Wynonna Earp is back on track for a summer 2020 return after the studio’s funding woes nearly derailed the Syfy drama.

-I like this Big Little Lies theory.

-The trailer for Rian Johnson‘s murder mystery Knives Out has dropped, featuring a stacked cast that includes Chris Evans, Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon and LaKeith Stanfield.

Kristen Stewart Goes Glam Charlie’s Angels Trailer

-The first Charlie’s Angels trailer actually looks like a blast. (I just listened to the I Hate It But I Love It episode about the last Charlie’s Angels movie and realized how gross it could be, so I’m comforted by the fact that these girls say “Hello, Charlie” in a very straight-forward, non-flirty way.)

-In his new Vanity Fair cover story, Idris Elba talks about being disheartened by the reaction to rumours he’d take on Bond, and taking a role in the adaptation of the Broadway musical Cats (“I’m not a ‘singer.’ I’ve made music with singing. I’m musical…I’m an actor. I’ve never done it before, so I thought, ‘Why not?'”)

Jake Gyllenhaal stanning for Sean Paul is the best thing you’ll see on the internet today.

-Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness tried to tame David Letterman‘s wild beard.

Kim Kardashian responded to the backlash against naming her shapewear line Kimono (and trying to trademark the term) in a statement that uses lots of words like “inclusion” and “diversity” but doesn’t really seem to recognize the cultural appropriation or apologize for anything.

-It’s been long enough that I can assume you’ve all watched season 2 of Fleabag, right? (If you haven’t, get on it! It’s only six 22-minute episodes, so you can crank it out in a night!) I’ve watched Kristin Scott Thomas’ monologue on how women are born with pain built in multiple times.  I love this interview with Andrew Scott and Phoebe Waller-Bridge on creating their chemistry, and this is probably the best article (of the many, many I read) about the show’s amazing use of the fourth wall.

Paul Rudd is joining the cast of Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters 2020, which he announced in this cute video.

-Nearly four months after it was cancelled by Netflix, One Day At A Time was saved by cable channel Pop. The landmark deal will see season four air there first before airing on CBS later.

-Speaking of shows that air on Pop in the US, this is a lovely story on the impact Schitt’s Creek has had on Goodwood, Ont., where fans flock to see the sets and stars.

-Spider-Man: Far From Home is getting pretty good reviews.

-The man who accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him in a bar in 2016 has filed a civil lawsuit against the actor.

Salma Hayek is in early talks to join Marvel’s The Eternals. At this point, they should just list the actors NOT rumoured to be in this movie.

George and Amal Clooney continue to live their best lives.

-The stars of Legends of Tomorrow openly mocking the fact that the CW didn’t invite them to ComicCon is a mood.

-I liked this article about the pros and cons of bringing back our fave TV shows and characters.

Joel Kinnaman plays a snitch caught between the mob and the FBI in the trailer for The Informer.
