-Now Meghan Markle‘s brother has joined her trash heap pile of a family.

-Brangelina‘s custody hearing has been postponed.

-This is a great article on the “radical softness” that TATBILB roused in people. We’re obviously desperate for happy stories.

-Meanwhile, the guy who plays Josh has apologized for those inappropriate tweets and said he’s now “dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself.”

-Interesting that Jean-Marc Vallee was reportedly approached for the new Bond. After Big Little Lies and now Sharp Objects, I gotta say that I’m finding his quick cut flashback style to be…a lot.

Eddie Murphy is reportedly getting ready to welcome his 10th(!) child.

Ashley Judd and Alyssa Milano say all the right things about #MeToo following Asia Argento‘s sexual assault allegations, but I think the movement’s founder, Tarana Burke, sums it up best: “It will continue to be jarring when we hear the names of some of our faves connected to sexual violence unless we shift from talking about individuals and begin to talk about power.”

-This is an interesting look at the new politics of shooting sex scenes in Hollywood, from fluorescent-colored pasties to the destruction of unused footage.

Drake will be dropping by TIFF to co-host a screening of Monsters and Men.

Jason Reitman is coming back to Toronto to present one of his star-studded live readings. Up this year: The Breakfast Club. (I saw his live reading of The Princess Bride a few years ago with Rachel McAdams, Patrick Stewart, Cary Elwes, Chris O’Dowd and Donald Glover and it was one of my fave TIFF experiences.)

Jon Hamm and Ed Harris have joined Top Gun: Maverick. Between them and Glen Powell, there are going to be a lot of strong jawlines in this thing.

-Catastrophe’s Sharon Horgan is developing an Amazon self-help comedy co-starring Billy Magnussen in which a “broken” woman starts a self-help company and hires a former gymnast to be the face of it. Get in my eyeballs!!

-The new Suspiria trailer features Tilda Swinton rocking a snuggie and Thom Yorke’s creepy score.

Beyonce Offers Glimpse of Family Life in Vogue Clip

Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir made a brief appearance in Beyonce‘s behind-the-scenes Vogue clip (which Bey had total control of, remember?).

Brad Pitt is reportedly “disgusted” that Angelina Jolie made their divorce battle public. Oh, but using TMZ to be your mouthpiece is totally chill?

-In today’s edition of “Hollywood Has Official Run Out of Ideas”, Designing Women is returning to the small screen with the original series creator behind the revival, 25 years after wrapping its seven-season run on CBS.

-Star Trek: Discovery has cast its Spock — and it’s Gregory Peck’s grandson. (He first caught my eye on the adorable 10 Things I Hate About You TV show, which also introduced me to the guy who plays Greg on Succession).

-The fact that Buzzfeed writer Sam Stryker starts all of his Kim Kardashian articles on Buzzfeed like this is so, so good and I wish I would have thought about it back when I had to write about her on the daily.

-Crazy Rich Asians is now tracking to post a five-day debut of $26 million-plus, according to the latest pre-release surveys. That’s up from $20 million projections just a few weeks ago.

-This Azealia Banks and Elon Musk feud is beyond weird.

-The 100 actress Marie Avgeropoulos (who plays Octavia) was arrested after a fight with her boyfriend.

-TIFF announced their opening and closing night films, and they’re both doozies. The fest will open with Outlaw King starring Chris Pine as 14th-century Scottish outlaw hero Robert the Bruce, who reclaimed the throne from the English crown and its army. It’ll close with Jeremiah Terminator Leroy, starring Laura Dern as an author who writes under a fictionalized persona, a young queer man named JT LeRoy. Kristen Stewart plays her boyfriend’s androgynous sister who agrees to be JT in the public eye. This image alone sold me.

Ariana Grande and James Corden performed a musical version of Titanic.

-The Infinity War blooper reel is mildly funny. Needs more of the Chrises. It’s been a rough week so I’ll take either of ’em at this point.

-I liked this article defending the oft-maligned college season of WB teen dramas.

Bill Cosby is still Bill Cosby-ing it up.

-The trailer for the new Amazon series The Romanoffs from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is chock-a-block with stars: Aaron Eckhart, Corey Stoll, Noah Wyle, Isabelle Huppert, Diane Lane, Paul Reiser, Amanda Peet, Kathryn Hahn, John Slattery and Christina Hendricks.

-The What Men Want trailer does not look great, but I guess it’s marginally better than the original Mel Gibson version.

Michelle Williams Reveals She’s Married: “I Never Gave Up on Love”

michelle-williams-vanity-fair

Michelle Williams‘ new Vanity Fair cover story is very good. There is a bit of set up weirdness (the writer mocks the typical profile intro of writing about what the actress is wearing or eating — and then does it?), but the interview itself is great. Williams reveals that she recently got married (“I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free”), reflects on the lessons she learned from her pay-gap scandal, which she credits Jessica Chastain for helping bring to light, and talks about her new TV series produced by Lin-Manuel Miranda (“When they told me about it, I thought, O.K., now comes the part where I have to go in kicking and screaming and shouting about equality and transparency…Then, before I could even ask for it, they said, ‘They’ve offered you what Sam Rockwell is making.’ I cried”).

Demi Lovato is reportedly going to rehab straight from the hospital. Thank goodness; I hope she turns it around. (Also, it’s sweet that Wilmer Valderrama visited her in the hospital.)

Jenna Dewan calls her split from Channing Tatum “a positive thing” and “the new normal” in her People profile.

-I always forgot that Beyoncé has twins. And then she posts a photo of them and I remember all over again. Every. Single. Time.

-Also, Amber Rose says Gwyneth Paltrow is the ‘Becky with the good hair’ referenced in Beyonce‘s song ‘Sorry’. WHAT.

Meghan Markle is apparently having issues with the Queen’s bedtime rule and I can’t say I blame her. (Though I think I’d have way more trouble with the ‘you can’t keep eating if the Queen has finished her meal’ rule. That’s madness.)

Karlie Kloss posted an Insta story in which she shared screenshots of famous friends like Serena Williams (but not Taylor!) reacting to news of her engagement on FaceTime, and in doing so revealed Princess Beatrice’s private account.

Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell‘s Lifetime series You has been given an early season 2 renewal, even though the first season hasn’t started airing yet. Considering how the book ends, I don’t get what this is going to be.

-Also, Badgley’s answer to whether he’d be up for a Gossip Girl reboot? “I’d do it if I could kill them.”

-Wait, so the Buffy reboot is not a reboot after all? It’ll just be in the same universe? Why didn’t they just say that in the first place?!? All of these reboot announcements need some serious workshopping.

-It’s official! As unbelievable as this remains to me, Kristen Stewart will lead the cast of Elizabeth BanksCharlie’s Angels reboot. (Unfortunately despite early talks, Lupita Nyong’o will not be one of the angels. They will be Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska.)

-On the Tonight Show, Nanette comedian Hannah Gadsby described her awkward first encounter with Emma Thompson, which ended with them crying on each other’s shoulders and Hannah accidentally texting Emma a photo of Chuck Norris.

-The cast of The Walking Dead did impressions of Negan in front of Jeffrey Dean MorganDanai Gurira was my fave.

-Also, Norman Reedus said he and Andrew Lincoln had a pact to leave The Walking Dead together. Oopsie!

-In a move pretty much everyone in Hollywood should copy these days, Rian Johnson has deleted all of his old tweets. He explained: “No official directive at all, and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad. But it’s nine years of stuff written largely off the cuff as ephemera, if trolls scrutinizing it for ammunition is the new normal, this seems like a ‘why not?’ move.”

-The critic embargo for The Spy That Dumped Me was just lifted and the reviews are…not good. Like, really. I’m still gonna watch the crap out of it, tho.

-Speaking of movies I’m going to watch the crap outta, The Hating Game is being adapted for the big screen! This is hands-down my favourite fluffy book which I re-read whenever I’m stressed. Which means I re-read it A LOT. In my fantasy casting, I see Anna Kendrick or Zoey Deutch for Lucy, and Matthew Goode or Mike Colter for Josh. Make it go, Hollywood!

-Speaking of romcoms, I love that Crazy Rich Asians is tracking high. (Also, Awkwafina is hosting the MMVAs.)

Carlton Cuse‘s adaptation of Locke & Key has finally found a home on Netflix. People *adore* this comic book.

-Despite superstar careers, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are bringing Flight Of The Conchords back to HBO for a live special.

Natalie Portman plays a NASA space captain in Noah Hawley‘s film directorial debut. As someone on Twitter mentioned, she looks exactly like Mike from Stranger Things.

-According to the writers guild, two thirds of female writers say they experience sexual harassment on the job. That’s insane.

-The more I see of To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, the more I can’t wait to watch this on Neflix!
