Kristen Stewart Transforms Into Princess Diana

-Every time I see a new image of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana, I’m taken aback. The latest look from Spencer shows her posing with a replica of Diana’s sapphire and diamond engagement ring.

George Clooney appeared on The Today Show and talked about teaching his twins how to pull pranks.

Johnny Depp failed to overturn the ruling in his “wife beater” libel case. The judges refused his application for a new trial on the grounds that a second hearing was unlikely to produce a different outcome: “The claim was based on a story in The Sun alleging that he had beaten his former wife, Amber Heard. After a three-week trial in the High Court last year, in which both Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard gave evidence, Mr. Justice Nicol found that the allegation was true.”

Issa Rae is on Variety’s new cover, and talks about signing on to five more years with HBO in a giant deal. “They wifed me up.”

Chrissy Teigen has deactivated her Twitter, saying “This no longer serves me as positively as it serves me negatively, and I think that’s the right time to call something.”

-We lost a legend today in Jessica Walter, the award-winning actress whose career spanned five decades, who passed away in her sleep at home in New York City today. I’m loving this compilation of her best moments as Lucille Bluth on Arrested Development.

-Also, I can’t stop thinking about that NYT interview in which her male AD costars gaslighted her about how bad behaviour is a common thing on sets/ part of some actors’ “process,” and she had to tearfully remind them she’d been working for 60 years and never experienced anything like what she did with Jeffrey Tambor.

Britney Spears is moving forward with her plans to make temporary conservator Jodi Montgomery her permanent conservator, and not let her father resume that role.

Kim Kardashian‘s “mini town” in her backyard for the kids is admittedly very neat.

Alexander Skarsgård showed off his artistic “skills” on The Tonight Show.

-Now there’s a black and white version of the Synder cut streaming on HBO Max. What’s happening?

-This is a fascinating article on how Sara Gruen, the Canadian-born author of Water for Elephants, developed a frenzied obsession to free an incarcerated man and it left her “absolutely broke,” “seriously ill,” and “years past deadline” on her next book.

-Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is heading back to theaters, for anyone who’s not scared to go to those.

-Disney+’s new Mighty Ducks series, starring Emilio Estevez and Lauren Graham, is getting great reviews.

-Also, Lauren Graham says she has a clause in all her contracts that allows her to shoot Gilmore Girls if the show ever comes back.

-The Mummy won a recent Twitter romcom bracket. I wouldn’t have thought it’s a romcom but I rewatched it a few weeks ago and yup, it checks all the boxes.

-So the guy who went viral with a tweet about finding shrimp tails in his cereal is married to Topanga — and also perhaps a horrible person who is now getting Me Too’d? The internet works fast.

-The first image of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in the upcoming film Spencer has landed. I was skeptical of her initial casting, but the resemblance is remarkable. And if anyone can play a person reluctant about their sudden fame, it’s her.

Kim Kardashian West reportedly has her divorce exit plan “ready to go.” A source tells Us Weekly: “Kim has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split, it’s a very fair deal for everyone.”

-Movie theatres have had a rough go of it lately, but AMC just erased its 20220 pandemic losses — because of Reddit.  Basically, a subreddit has decided to take down hedge funds by inflating the stock of shorted companies like AMC, Gamestop, Bed Bath & Beyond, and a few others. This thread is probably the simplest explanation of what’s going on that I’ve see so far.

Christa B. Allen will be invited to the Revenge reunion after all now that organizers said they’ve changed platforms so now they no longer have a tech-based limit of four castmembers. Um, they know we all know how Zoom works at this point, right?

Dakota Johnson says she’s used George Clooney’s name to get dinner reservations. She eventually told him and he was cool with it.

Pamela Anderson secretly tied the knot with her bodyguard on Christmas Eve — 11 months after her nonlegal wedding to Jon Peters.

-Conservatives are big mad over Alyssa Milano being cast in a Nora Roberts adaptation.

-Netflix says it has a new most-watched series in Bridgerton: a record 82 million households around the world tuned in in its first 28 days, making it the streamer’s biggest series ever. I still side-eye all of Netflix’s “ratings” releases, but hopefully this will usher in a bunch of romance adaptations.

-The first images from Netflix’s Shadow and Bone adaptation are here and I’m excited. I don’t usually read fantasy but a friend recommended that series and I devoured it.

-Who in the world in Lindsay Lohan‘s camp is trying to suppress the first bit of good press she’s gotten in years?!

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci’s new film Supernova, in which they play a couple dealing with illness, is getting rave reviews.

-On the flip side, Netflix’s Malcolm & Marie, starring Zendaya and John David Washington, is not getting good reviews. “A screechy and solipsistic debate about identity politics that was made because Zendaya was bored during lockdown.”

-Top Gun: Maverick is still holding out for a summer release, which seems wildly optimistic.

Paul Bettany says Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon “really, really wanted” Vision to have a penis in his “birth” scene. “And everyone, [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] and [Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito], I mean everybody was like ‘I don’t know, Joss…I mean…I’m not sure…'”

Kate Moss and her daughter walked the runway together.

Cloris Leachman has passed away at 94.

Selena Gomez announced she’ll be releasing a whole EP in Spanish, Revelación, on March 12.

Gary Oldman and Armie Hammer star in the trailer for Crisis, Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage follow-up. The timing of this is bad on so many levels.

 

Taylor Swift Is Dropping Clues

Taylor Swift posted a black-and-white picture captioned, “not a lot going on at the moment.” She wore the same message on a t-shirt in her “22” music video and, in April, she used the caption while secretly recording folklore. While some assume it’s an “Exile” music video, the likeliest bet is that she’s re-recording Red, now that she’s officially free to. In her AMA speech, she confirmed that she’s re-recording her old music in the studio she originally did it.

-Euphoria star Lukas Gage posted a Zoom audition in which the director, thinking he was muted, mocked the size of his apartment. I’ve never seen so many blue-checked replies in a comments section, and they come from a weird, wide range of celebs like Dakota Fanning, Paul Mescal, January Joans, Molly Shannon, Emmy Rossum, Robbie Amell, Paul Scheer.

-TMZ reports the director on the call was Tristram Shapeeroand says he’ll be releasing his side of the story — but it won’t include an apology. Not quite sure how that comment could have possibly be taken out of context but sure.

Vanessa Hudgens was spotted looking cozy with MLB player Cole Tucker.

-When Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas were in New Orleans last week, everyone zeroed in on the massive diamond ring she was wearing, but it seems they were simply doing reshoots for Dark Water, in which they play a married couple. The way she’s looking at the ring though, they were def playing it up for the paps.

-This is a great interview with Kristen Stewart, in which she’s asked if only queer actors should play queer characters. “would never want to tell a story that really should be told by somebody who’s lived that experience. Having said that, it’s a slippery slope conversation because that means I could never play another straight character if I’m going to hold everyone to the letter of this particular law. I think it’s such a gray area. There are ways for men to tell women’s stories, or ways for women to tell men’s stories. But we need to have our finger on the pulse and actually have to care. You kind of know where you’re allowed. I mean, if you’re telling a story about a community and they’re not welcoming to you, then fuck off.”

-Jeopardy is not naming a new long-term host after Alex Trebek‘s death right away. For awhile, there will be a series of rotating hosts, starting with Ken Jennings.

-I didn’t understand The Weeknd’s look at last night’s AMAs.

Bad Bunny was originally set to perform at the AMAs but had to cancel after testing positive for the rona.

Christine Baranski says she “practically didn’t have to read the script” before joining Dolly Parton’s new Christmas film: “Oh my God, I get to hang out with Dolly Parton!? She’s going to be my personal Christmas angel? Where do I sign the papers?” It just hit Netflix and I cannot wait to watch it.

-Now here’s a headline to kick off the week: “Sex Pistols star Johnny Rotten bitten by a flea on his penis after rescuing squirrels”

Hasan Minhaj was trending today for a clip from Vanity Fair’s lie detector test where he said he was more attractive than Dax Shepard.

-Speaking of Hasan, women of colour who worked on his Netflix show Patriot Act have called out his treatment of them.

-Netflix today announced that, according to their numbers, a record-setting 62 million households chose to watch The Queen’s Gambit in its first month, making it its biggest scripted limited series to date. I don’t believe Netflix’s ratings press releases at all, but it must mean something that it’s been listed in the Top 10 in Canada for weeks. The fact that it hit No. 1 for at least a day in 63 different countries speaks to it’s wide appeal — everyone from teens to grandmas seems to be watching it.

-Meanwhile, expect it to land on many Best TV of 2019 lists.

Prince William and Kate revealed their ‘dear dog’ Lupo died over the weekend.

-I remember when Ryan Reynolds filmed Just Friends in Saskatchewan and there were so many stories coming out of that town about him being um, not great. But his reputation on set has definitely turned around the last couple of years. And now he’s doing stuff like this: he recorded over 400 personalized videos to thank his quarantining crew.

Kelly Clarkson and Jewel teamed up for a “Foolish Games” duet over Zoom to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Piece of You album and it was pretty damn great.
