Kristen Stewart Goes Glam Charlie’s Angels Trailer

-The first Charlie’s Angels trailer actually looks like a blast. (I just listened to the I Hate It But I Love It episode about the last Charlie’s Angels movie and realized how gross it could be, so I’m comforted by the fact that these girls say “Hello, Charlie” in a very straight-forward, non-flirty way.)

-In his new Vanity Fair cover story, Idris Elba talks about being disheartened by the reaction to rumours he’d take on Bond, and taking a role in the adaptation of the Broadway musical Cats (“I’m not a ‘singer.’ I’ve made music with singing. I’m musical…I’m an actor. I’ve never done it before, so I thought, ‘Why not?'”)

Jake Gyllenhaal stanning for Sean Paul is the best thing you’ll see on the internet today.

-Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness tried to tame David Letterman‘s wild beard.

Kim Kardashian responded to the backlash against naming her shapewear line Kimono (and trying to trademark the term) in a statement that uses lots of words like “inclusion” and “diversity” but doesn’t really seem to recognize the cultural appropriation or apologize for anything.

-It’s been long enough that I can assume you’ve all watched season 2 of Fleabag, right? (If you haven’t, get on it! It’s only six 22-minute episodes, so you can crank it out in a night!) I’ve watched Kristin Scott Thomas’ monologue on how women are born with pain built in multiple times.  I love this interview with Andrew Scott and Phoebe Waller-Bridge on creating their chemistry, and this is probably the best article (of the many, many I read) about the show’s amazing use of the fourth wall.

Paul Rudd is joining the cast of Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters 2020, which he announced in this cute video.

-Nearly four months after it was cancelled by Netflix, One Day At A Time was saved by cable channel Pop. The landmark deal will see season four air there first before airing on CBS later.

-Speaking of shows that air on Pop in the US, this is a lovely story on the impact Schitt’s Creek has had on Goodwood, Ont., where fans flock to see the sets and stars.

-Spider-Man: Far From Home is getting pretty good reviews.

-The man who accused Kevin Spacey of sexually assaulting him in a bar in 2016 has filed a civil lawsuit against the actor.

Salma Hayek is in early talks to join Marvel’s The Eternals. At this point, they should just list the actors NOT rumoured to be in this movie.

George and Amal Clooney continue to live their best lives.

-The stars of Legends of Tomorrow openly mocking the fact that the CW didn’t invite them to ComicCon is a mood.

-I liked this article about the pros and cons of bringing back our fave TV shows and characters.

Joel Kinnaman plays a snitch caught between the mob and the FBI in the trailer for The Informer.

Lizzo Talks Body Positivity and Authenticity

Lizzo Essence Magazine cover

Lizzo looks amazing on the cover of Essence! She talks about talks about embracing authenticity: “I made a decision to be myself because I knew I had no choice. Sometimes the label ‘unapologetic’ bothers me because it can be loaded, because it means we have to apologize for something in the first place. I’m not ignorant to the fact that we had to have a demeanor of lowering ourselves culturally just to exist. But I’m trying to shake up the narrative about how we’re supposed to act.”

Robert Pattinson has landed the lead Matt Reeves‘ The Batman. Twitter blew up in outrage over this last night, this makes sense to me. Maybe people only know him from Twilight, but both he and Kristen Stewart have been doing some really interesting films in the last few years. And I’m not worried about him not being able to put on muscle; that’s what trainers are for.

-Ahead of this Sunday’s series finale, I really liked this roundup of female TV critics talking about how the show has failed its women this year.

-This saddens me: Busy Philipps bid a tearful goodbye to her E! talk show. “The most important lesson that we learned here is that it is a marathon, not a sprint, and the real trick is figuring out what the f*ck the marathon is that you’re actually running. And I have to tell you something: Guys, we haven’t even broken a sweat yet.”

-The Joker script sounds bad. Really bad.

-Here’s how that Sarah Michelle Gellar cameo on Big Bang Theory’s finale came together.

Billie Eilish knows she made it when Melissa McCarthy starts impersonating her and Julia Roberts wants to hang.

-I dig this dress on Julianne Moore in Cannes.

-Rocketman’s Taron Egerton seems super bland to me but he might be winning me over with his Bryan Singer jabs.

Michael Fassbender and Peter Dinklage, I expect more than you than a Mel Gibson movie! Jamie Foxx…meh, you do you.

-I love that Halle Berry makes a point to stops for black reporters on a red carpet.

-The casting for BBC/HBO’s His Dark Materials (James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson, Lin-Manuel Miranda) is pretty damn perfect.

Taylor Swift’s New Song Gets Mixed Reviews

-I’ve watched Taylor Swift’s new video a trillion times already today because the song is catchy as hell (despite the critics — The Atlantic called it “everything wrong with pop,” Stereogum called it “hollow” and “lazy,” Vulture said it’s “cute but cloying,” and The Independent called it “toothless.”) But what’s the clue she supposedly embedded in the video? Is she engaged?

-Speaking of engagement speculation, Mindy Kaling’s Beyonce audition is very funny but is that a ring we see?!

-Our long national nightmare may finally be over: it looks like Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson have split.

-High School Musical actress Monique Coleman recalled the time when Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron got into such a bad fight on set that they shut down production for a day.

-This is a fascinating, sprawling conversation with Kristen Stewart and Laura Dern, in which Stewart talks about her sexuality (“It’s easier to have a longer conversation that requires patience, versus f*cking five years ago, when people were demanding that I come out as gay. And I was like, ‘Dude, how do you know? I don’t even know!'”) and Dern reveals how they grew close while filming JT Leroy (“When we had social time, Kristen adopted my teenage son, who is obsessed with her. They became besties. That made it easier. I had a built-in nanny, co-star, love interest — an all-in-one”).

-More and more US outlets are starting to cover the Prince William affair rumours. The latest: The Cut.

-There were lots of very good takes published today on the recent trend of celebrities confusing criticism with personal attacks, including from Variety, Buzzfeed and Slate.

-Oh and Micheal Che is still whining (and confusing Variety with a blog).

Bradley Cooper taught Ellen some Italian curse words on today’s show.

-I can only assume that Felicity Huffman is just *thrilled* that pal Vanessa Williams is talking to the press about their post-arrest text exchange.

Harvey Weinstein‘s sexual assault trial has been postponed to September 9. Welp, that’s gonna make for an interesting TIFF.

-Avengers: Endgame is already tearing up all the record books with a $140M-$150M opening day, blasting away Star Wars: Force Awakens’ record first day of $119.1M. This thing is tracking for an opening weekend of at least $315M — and could make $1B worldwide.

-Everyone’s really worried about what’s going to happen in the crypts this weekend on Game of Thrones, but this fan theory is great.

George and Amal Clooney throw epic pizza parties, according to Adam Sandler, who attended one with Jennifer Aniston when they were shooting in Italy. “They made us homemade pizza. It was an amazing time. I sat next to Bono. It was a great day…Every time I’m with Jennifer something great happens because everybody loves Jennifer and I tend to stay at home and do nothing.” I kind of love that Aniston seemed to get Clooney in the split with Pitt.

-Also, Sandler and Aniston have teamed up again for a Netflix movie. At least it seems like they got a cool paid vacation out of it?
