Bennifer Rises!

-Bennifer is back, baby! 17 years after calling off their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted on a romantic vacation in Montana.

-So the Golden Globes are pretty much dead, huh? Netflix kicked things off on Friday by announcing they were “stopping any activities” with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association until changes were made about their lack of diversity, and Amazon quickly followed suit. Then today, NBC announced it wouldn’t air the show next year, stars like Scarlett Johansson, Ava DuVernay and Mark Ruffalo called them out, and Tom Cruise GAVE BACK the awards he’s won over the years as a sign of protest. (Hopefully we’ll finally get justice for Brendan Fraser.)

John Mulaney and his wife Annamarie Tendler are splitting up after six years of marriage — and it seems like it was his decision. In a statement to People via her rep, she said “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.”

Gal Gadot says Joss Whedon treated her badly on the Justice League set: “He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable. I handled it on the spot.” That lines up with what a source told the Hollywood Reporter in their exposé about it: “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.”

Aubrey Plaza confirmed that she’s married to her longtime boyfriend Jeff Baena — and the internet was weirdly mad about it.

Kristen Bell continues to overshare about her sex life with Dax Shepard.

-Who thought it was a good idea to put up Gina Carano for Emmy consideration for The Mandalorian, the show she was fired from?

-I really loved this interview with Sierra Teller Ornelas, the Native co-creator of Rutherford Falls.

Seth Rogen says he has no plans to work with James Franco again after his sexual misconduct allegations. “What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment and I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that.”

-He was asked about it when promoting his new memoir, which is getting rave reviews.

-Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed — but Jesse Williams is leaving the show. (Though he and Sarah Drew teased a spinoff about their characters.)

Helen Mirren is helping Italy’s vaccination effort with a viral video.

-There’s an oral history of Tom Holland‘s performance of “Umbrella”!

-Amid all the controversy about Doctor Who actor Noel Clarke, his costar John Barrowman has apologized for repeatedly exposing himself on set. I remember the Arrow cast talking about him doing this all the time like it was a funny joke. David Boreanaz used to brag about doing this on the Buffy set, too.

-In case you missed this wildly depressing news last week, LaKeith Stanfield moderated a Clubhouse chat dedicated to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories where Jews were repeatedly compared to Satanists and termites.

Dave Bautista is set to join the cast of Knives Out 2.

-I’m not sure why the New York Post thinks Leonardo DiCaprio looks unrecognizable in the first photos of the new Scorsese film. He looks like he always does? (The replies to their tweet are hilarious.)

-Actually unrecognizable is Lily James as Pamela Anderson. Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee still looks like Sebastian Stan, though.

Woody Harrelson’s Carnage battles Tom Hardy in the new Venom 2 trailer.

Jennifer Lopez’s Inauguration Performance Gets Mixed Reviews

JLo’s performance at the inauguration was, um, interesting. But I adored the white outfit — and the photo shoot.

The New Radicalsappearance at today’s inauguration makes more sense when you learn that “You Get What You Give” was the Biden family’s breakfast rallying song when Beau was going through cancer treatment. *sob*

Lady Gaga took her tech entrepreneur boyfriend Michael Polansky to the inauguration.

Rihanna had today’s best social media post.

-I’m not a huge James Corden fan but his “One Day More” song with Broadway stars was pretty spectacular.

-There’s no update on the Shawn Mendes/Camila Cabello engagement rumours but she’s making headlines for her charitable work: she’s teaming with Movement Voter Fund to launch the Healing Justice Project, which will focus on giving frontline activists access to mental health support.

Danny Masterson has pleaded not guilty to charges of raping three women and is out on $3.3 million bail.

Lori Harvey and Michael B Jordan continue to enjoy their blissful bubble.

-Variety’s latest Actors On Actors video features Daniel Kaluuya and Tom Holland, and it’s all very charming. Holland says he broke his laptop when he found out he’d landed Spider-Man: “I flipped it up in the air. It fell off my bed. My dog went nuts. I ran downstairs. I was telling my family, “I got the part! I got the part!”‘

-Lupin (a French Netflix show about a gentleman thief who steals a diamond necklace for revenge) is on track to reach more households than recent buzzy fare such as Bridgerton and The Queen’s Gambit.

-I haven’t started it yet but the reviews are glowing.

-Every time there’s a fluffy People story about Kristen Bell, I remember Deux Moi’s recent posts about how she’s being groomed to take over Ellen’s job.

-I just got all caught up on The Boys (I blame Aya Cash) and am now crushing on Jack Quaid. This IG Live in which Jane Levy assures him he’s hot is hilarious.

-Netflix stock hit an all-time high today.

Jovan Adepo, Grace Van Patten and Mary J. Bilge star in The Violent Heart trailer.

Kristen Bell Talks Boundaries

Romper Kristen Bell
Emman Montalvan/Romper

Kristen Bell is a chronic over-sharer (seriously, we know a LOT about her marriage) but one thing she says she won’t share is her kids’ faces. In the new issue of Romper, she says “My feeling is that I chose a career in the public eye. I chose to be quoted, I chose to have my picture taken. I don’t know them yet. I don’t know if they will want that. So I really don’t have the right to choose for them.”

Leonardo DiCaprio took his dad bod to the beach.

Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are burying the fake hatchet for charity.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is back in the news, and once again it’s for not-great reasons: he was arrested and charged with a DUI on Sunday.

-Beyoncé just announced a multi-year partnership with Peloton to produce exclusive fitness content. As if I didn’t want one of these things already…

Sebastian Stan spent the first part of the pandemic bitching on social about people who were travelling, but now it seems like all he does is go on exotic vacations? In any case, his latest jaunt to Mexico featured cozy times with Alejandra Onieva.

-I find it sooooo weird that Brian Austin Green has Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth caping for his parenting skills.

-There are new photos of Dominic West and his wife going for a run. Well then, I’m convinced everything’s fine now!

-The TV gods giveth (Netflix renewed The Umbrella Academy) and the TV gods taketh away (HBO cancelled The Outsiders).

Salma Hayek did a supercut of all the times she’s gotten a covid test and I couldn’t get past the first 4 seconds.

-Just when you thought Phil Collins’ divorce proceedings couldn’t get uglier comes accusations from his ex of impotence and neglecting to bathe or brush his teeth for months.

-The Grey’s Anatomy showrunner very politely implied that Justin Chambers‘ exit screwed up her endgame plans, but won’t discuss details of his incredibly abrupt departure. “It’s just not my story to tell.”

Zach Braff, who’s 45, talked about his girlfriend Florence Pugh, who’s 24, and why he hasn’t discussed their age difference since she posted this video addressing the criticism of their relationship on Instagram. “She literally sat down, hit record on her phone and said that. I thought: how could I possibly follow anything as intelligent and articulate as that? So, I chose not to.”

-SNL had just 85 minutes to recreate Kamala Harris’ white pantsuit for Maya Rudolph to wear before the show went live.

Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to replace Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. What an upgrade!

-I’m really bummed that Robbie Amell had to drop out of The Hating Game. It is my FAVOURITE romcom (seriously, if you haven’t read it yet go fix your life) and he would have made a great Josh.

-This is a good overview of what’s going on in the movie industry, and why consumers now expecting a seamless shift of blockbusters from the big screen to their homes are about to get a rude awakening.

-The reviews for Netflix’s Hillbilly Elegy are hilariously negative. (Hilarious because the Oscar-baiting poverty porn trailer looked so, so bad.)

-Meanwhile, Netflix’s holiday romcom series Dash & Lily is debuting this week to good reviews.

-Spy costars Melissa McCarthy and Bobby Cannavale reunite for the Superintelligence trailer. This time he’s playing her love interest, which I *adore*.
