Let me give you some notes.'”

-Congrats to Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, who just welcomed a daughter.

-HBO aired a Game of Thrones documentary last night, which heavily focused on the crew and production. Though the cast scenes were few and far between, there were some really touching bits from the table reads, including the moment Varys dies, and the teary one when Kit Harrington (who doesn’t read the scripts before the first readthrough) found out about Dany’s fate. Emila Clarke looks crushed in both clips.

-Oof, this part of Chris Kattan’s memoir where he says Lorne Michaels pressured him to sleep with director Amy Heckerling so she wouldn’t tank Night at the Roxbury is a rough read.

-I gave up on Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone, but I might tune into the season finale because it stars Seth Rogen and Zazie Beetz.

Eva Mendes Ryan Gosling Kids

-In her new interview with Women’s Health, Eva Mendes says she hadn’t really considered motherhood until she met Ryan Gosling. “It was the furthest thing from my mind. Ryan Gosling happened. I mean, falling in love with him. Then it made sense for me to have…not kids, but his kids. It was very specific to him.”

Jimmy Kimmel organized a Game of Thrones hotline to help confused fans — with the show’s stars manning the phones.

Angelina Jolie is Pitt-less. She officially dropped her ex’s last name.

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay cover Marie Claire, where they talk about the importance of inclusion and representation, and learning how to not obsess about accommodating others.

-Sad news for for those of you who even knew they were dating: Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield split up.

Kit Harrington told Stephen Colbert about the end of Game of Thrones: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

-I’ve watched this clip of Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones spontaneously singing at each other more times than can be considered normal.

Keri Russell and Adam Driver (who are costarring on Broadway) are so damn funny and charming in this NYT profile.

-You can tell Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have done a few movies together by this point; their chemistry is really easy going and nice. The Captain Marvel pair sang Ariana Grande and took a lie detector test on Carpool Karaoke.

-Also, Larson and Jackson sang “Shallow” on The Jonathan Ross Show and they were pretty damn great.

Heidi Montag defended The Hills reboot’s lack of diversity by pointing out her co-stars’ hair colours. So that happened.

-Also, I keep forgetting that Mischa Barton is in this thing.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that her persona shift from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had everyone “thinking I was a crackpot.” Who is this whiskey-drinking badass she’s speaking of?

-Not surprisingly, Idris Elba‘s Netflix comedy about a DJ-turned-nanny isn’t getting glowing reviews. I want more for him than this. (And I definitely want more for him than taking over Will Smith’s role in Suicide Squad.)

-HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed will follow Amy Syed’s process of seeking and winning an appeal post-Serial.

-I liked this piece a lot about how Steven Spielberg isn’t right about Netflix — but he’s not entirely wrong either. I’ve been surprised by they lack of debate and the full-throated support of Netflix (who does some not great stuff). At the very least, they *should* disclose their box office numbers if they want to be Oscar contenders.

-Oh my goodness, the Good Omens trailer is all kinds of fun.

-I very much enjoyed this look back at Julia Roberts’ “Fellini summer”, a dramatic few months which included leaving fiance Kiefer Sutherland for Jason Patric, fighting with Steven Spielberg on Hook, being hospitalized for the “flu”, and walking away from Shakespeare in Love.

-You know, I’ve been pretty checked out on Arrow for a while and mostly just catch up with it out of routine these days, but compiling all these cast and fan social media posts about the show’s ending for this story hit me harder than I thought it would, especially Stephen Amell‘s tearful Facebook video. There were seasons when I LOVED this show, and I’m glad it’s getting to go out on its own terms.

-Meanwhile, I’m thinking this TV blind item from a while ago was probably about Amell.

-The trailer for Mindy Kaling’s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is everything I’ve ever wanted.
