Miley Cyrus’ Sad House Party

Miley Cyrus‘ walks through the depressing remains of a house party that’s winding down in the new “Slide Away” video.

-Twitter can’t stop talking about Timothee Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp‘s incredibly awkward kiss.

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play the lead role opposite Jeremy Renner in Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye series. I’m surprised by how well this news seems to be going over on Twitter (especially among critics). Is she a lowkey Hollywood darling?

-I secretly love Medieval Times, so I’m got a lot of secondhand delight from watching Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon battle at one.

Prince Andrew continues to implode before our eyes — but apparently we’re only supposed to care that Meghan Markle went to the US Open.

Hayley Atwell joining Tom Cruise in next Mission: Impossible movie is fantasy casting for me.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Hot Priest gave out gin in a tin to people in line outside the Fleabag theatre this weekend.

-I’m not sure about Joker based on all the reviews. Do we really need a sympathetic origin story about a nice-guy-turned-mas- murderer right now? This tweet nails where my head’s at.

Joaquin Phoenix, who is in town for TIFF with Joker, made an appearance at St. George subway station today in support of an animal justice campaign “BeFairBeVegan.” He wouldn’t comment to reporters, though.

-Weird. Variety dubbed a video of Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria talking about how Fiona Apple is donating the money she earns from her song appearing in the film to refugees (the video Variety initially posted replaced the word “refugees” with “the movie”). After being called out, they reposted the video and called it a “glitch.”

-I really like this interview clip with Kristen Stewart on what sort of reactions she’s gotten since saying she was warned that she’d never get a Marvel movie if she came out. (I spotted her in the audience on Friday night with her gf at Jason Segel‘s film The Friend, which I don’t think she has a connection to.)

-I’m having a ridiculously good TIFF. Seven movies so far and none that I’ve hated. And I haven’t seen them yet, but people are losing their crap about how good Hustlers and Knives Out are. The only obvious flop so far: Nicole Kidman’s The Goldfinch.

-People also really loved The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The compliment I keep hearing is that it’s endlessly quotable (which you wouldn’t know from this trailer).

 

Kristen Stewart Keeps It Real in Harper’s Bazaar

kristen-stewart-harpers-bazaar

-In her new Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Kristen Stewart talks about being true to herself (“I’ve fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.’ I don’t want to work with people like that”) and moving past her Twilight phase (“I try to avoid the word ‘awkward’. I want to reclaim that word, because it’s been used too violently against me”).

Stewart joins Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Lili Reinhart, King Princess, and more in Rodarte’s Spring Lookbook. These photos are 😍

-FFS. She’s starring in the two buzziest movies this fall (Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story and Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit), so I don’t know why Scarlett Johansson isn’t trying harder to steer clear of controversy. Like, she literally has to just avoid saying something stupid and she’ll coast to an Oscar nom. And yet here she is in her new THR cover story defending — with very little prompting, I might add — Woody Allen. “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime…I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”

-Will we ever really know what happened with Brangelina and the kids on that plane? Probably not, but Brad Pitt is coming clean about having issues with alcohol. In a new interview with the New York Times, he talks about getting sober (“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges”) and going to AA for a year and a half (“You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard. It was this safe space where there was little judgment and therefore little judgment of yourself. It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There’s great value in that”).

Dwayne Johnson had to leave his honeymoon early to fill in for an injured Kevin Hart on the debut of Kelly Clarkson’s talk show. (I’m really bummed for her that Hart was her first booked guest. She deserves better.)

Lil Nas X held his own and did really, really well despite Kevin Hart‘s attempts to gaslit him about his choice to come out. The internet was def on Lil Nas X’s side.

-Almost one year after Mac Miller‘s death, a man has been charged in connection with his passing for selling counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs containing fentanyl to Miller, two days before his death.

-Yikes. The Crazy Rich Asians co-writer has left the sequel amid a pay disparity dispute. Sources say that Warner Bros. offered Adele Lim $110,000-plus — while offering co-writer Peter Chiarelli $800,000 to $1 million (he later volunteered to split his fee with her). “Pete has been nothing but incredibly gracious, but what I make shouldn’t be dependent on the generosity of the white-guy writer,” Lim said. “If I couldn’t get pay equity after CRA, I can’t imagine what it would be like for anyone else, given that the standard for how much you’re worth is having established quotes from previous movies, which women of color would never have been [hired for]. There’s no realistic way to achieve true equity that way.” So basically the WB sold the first film on its groundbreaking representation — but is willing to endanger the sequel by underpaying because of sexism.

-It’s time for the People’s Choice Awards nominations — the only awards show where Riverdale could possibly lead the way.

-Meanwhile, the Riverdale photos released for the Season 4 premiere show the cast paying tribute to Luke Perry.

-Here’s a guide to when all the Fall TV shows are premiering.

-This is a great, great interview with Jeremy Strong, who might be doing better work on Succession than anyone else on TV at the moment.

Olivia Wilde talked to THR about her film Booksmart’s box office battle, defending the (weird? wrong?) decision to immediately open wide instead of starting with a limited run and building off word-of-mouth a la Ladybird.

Justin Bieber is getting plenty of celebrity support for his emotional Instagram post.

-Uh, Dakota Fanning may not have been my first choice to play an Ethiopian Muslim refugee in a movie.

-Here’s our very first glimpse of Birds of Prey, 2020 in a teaser that’s playing before the new IT movie.

-I didn’t know I needed another installment of the Bad Boys movies until I saw the new Bad Boys for Life trailer and yeah, gimmie!

-New couple alert? Euphoria costars Zendaya and Jacob Elordi are vacationing in Greece together. (Eagle-eyed fans spotted them in a few social media posts.) I only know him from The Kissing Booth but he seems like a lovable lug so, um, get it I guess?

-Speaking of possible new couples, SNL’s Pete Davidson has been spotted again with Margaret Qualley (who was in The Leftovers and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood). How does he keep pulling quality ladies?!

-Game of Thrones costars Emilia Clarke and Rose Leslie are vacationing together in India and they were “robbed blind by monkeys.” (The ridiculous blind items surrounding those two and Kit Harington are either going to go away, or kick into higher gear. I can’t tell.)

Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things paved his IT costar Bill Hader.

-This article on how Friends has aged poorly is so, so good.

Iman wore an incredible dress in Venice. We’re not worthy.

-Critics didn’t love Kristen Stewart‘s Jean Seberg biopic in Venice, but seem to agree that her performance was great.

Kerry Washington says she misses interacting with fans during her Scandal live-tweets — so she just posted her phone number. This won’t end well.

-Reuters got a ton of heat today for tweeting about Kirsten Dunst getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the caption, “Kirsten Dunst, best known for her role as Spiderman’s girlfriend…” They’ve since changed it.

Jesse Plemons talking about falling in love with Dunst is very, very sweet.

-Meanwhile, Dunst spilled some tea about her career in a new interview: “I’ve also had a lot of disappointment. The things that people like…remember when Marie Antoinette [came out] — y’all panned it? And now you all love it. Remember Drop Dead Gorgeous? Panned. Now you all love it. It’s interesting for me. I feel like a lot of things I do people like later.”

-Here’s the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, starring Mackenzie Davis and Linda Hamilton.
