-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.

-Sadness: Alexis Arquette has died at 47. The family issued a statement today.

-I saw Nocturnal Animals last night and Michael Shannon stole the movie. Apparently, he also stole the afterparty.

-Speaking of afterparties, Anne Hathaway kind of won me over by changing into overalls and dancing barefoot on a couch at the Colossal one. And I actually saw her eat food. No one eats at these things! (I mean, I do…but I don’t count). Also, her movie is awesome but basically unmarketable.

-I also saw Shia LaBeouf‘s new movie (and liked it — gasp!) but he didn’t attend the screening. He was scheduled to, but then his crazy interview in Variety was published last week where he made a bunch of incendiary remarks (including trashing Steven Spielberg), and suddenly he was reportedly no longer invited.

-Speaking of TIFF, everyone was looking at Nate Parker‘s behaviour this weekend to see if he could appropriately address the controversy and get Birth of a Nation back on the Oscar track.

‘Game of Thrones: The Musical’ Is Perfection

-The Red Nose Day telethon was on last night, and the Game of Thrones musical skit was most def the best part. Kit Harrington singing “Wildling” to Rose Leslie and Emilia Clarke singing “Rastafarian Targaryen” killed me.

-Here are some other Red Nose Day highlights, including the star-studded opener.

-Also great: the Indianna Jones skit starring Anna Kendrick.

-The guy who played Luke has hinted that a Gilmore Girls reunion is in the works. I’m…not sold on this idea.

-Meanwhile, Katie Holmes does not think a Dawson’s Creek reunion would work.

Michael B Jordan has penned an essay for EW in response to the outrage about his Fantastic Four casting. This guy is so perfect I feel like I need to build a pinhole camera just to look at him.

-It’s so gross when the paparazzi follow stars around on the beach trying to snap photos during their private vacations and…oh shit, is that shirtless Stephen Amell? Dammit. Go away, pesky morals!
