mila-kunis-cosmopolitan

Kate McKinnon interviews costar Mila Kunis in the new issue of Cosmo, in which she talks about first reconnecting with Ashton Kutcher over social media, and how  her family sometimes believes tabloid stories about her.

-The idea of Justin Timberlake begging Drake to do a collab tickles me more than it probably should.

-At a backyard party on the Fourth of July, Chance The Rapper got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend, Kirsten Corley, to marry him. I’m gonna sound like my grandma right now, but he probably should have put a shirt on first.

Idris Elba  is in final talks to play the villain in the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. This is already the best F&F movie ever made! (Somewhere, do you think Vin Diesel is weeping softly?)

-I’m digging season 2 of GLOW but yeah, this one thing is bothers me too (probably because in the first season it never even occurred to me that it could be their endgame).

This tweet compared Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas to New Girl’s Cece and Schmidt and now it’s all I can see.

-The photo of Jay Z wearing a helmet while riding a jet ski has gone viral because…well, have you seen it?

-The Beckhams presented a united front on their 19th anniversary. But no one seems particularly convinced though because we’re all cynical beshes.

Lupita Nyong’o and Kristen Stewart keep inching closer to that Charlie’s Angels reboot that Elizabeth Banks is directing, but nothing’s been confirmed.

-I like that Selena Gomez spent Independence Day with her Wizards of WaverlyPlace costar David Henrie. He seems like a good egg.

Julianna Margulies says she rejected an invite to guest on The Good Fight in season one because she “didn’t think that was fair” to the cast. “I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been [all] about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” And now TGF has surpassed TGW in every possible way.

-July 4th means Blind Item reveal day on Crazy Days and Nights. I’m side-eyeing most of these, but this one is really nice.

-Rumoured couple Chris Pine and Peaky Blinders star Annabelle Wallis look very couple-y.

Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio being friends makes so much sense to me.

Amy Adams’ HBO show Sharp Objects, which debuts Sunday, continues to get stellar reviews.

T.I. says that he confronted Kanye West about his Trump comments — and their five-hour conversation about politics turned into into a collab.

-You’d think Gillian Anderson would want to stay away from alien-themed pop culture, but here she is in the UFO trailer. I’m not complaining.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Isn’t Wowing Critics

Solo A Star Wars Story reviews
-The first reviews for Solo are out, and though they are mixed (good, not great seems to be the theme), I’m glad that it sounds like Alden Ehrenreich delivers. I felt like he was being set up to be blamed if people didn’t like it with all the rumours about acting coaches, etc.

Meghan Markle‘s dad has reportedly changed his mind and now wants to walk his daughter down the aisle after all, but he may be having heart surgery. The wedding is this weekend! What is happening?!?

-I was waiting for this: Now that the dust has settled, Lethal Weapon’s Damon Wayans  went OFF on fired co-star Clayne Crawford last night on Twitter, alleging abusive behavior. Before shutting down his Twitter account, Wayans posted a video that shows him getting struck in the back of his head by shrapnel while filming a scene. (An earlier report suggested that Crawford had been officially reprimanded twice, and once was for an incident when he was directing and another actor on set felt unsafe after being hit by a piece of shrapnel from an effect.) Wayans added that Crawford “relished in making females cry,” “struck fear in cast and crew”, punched an actor in the mouth with a bottle of green tea, and had a file full of “infractions.”

-Lethal Weapon costar Michelle Mitchenor also tweeted: “Ok @ClayneCrawford you know I have nothing but respect & admiration for your talent. But are you really going to let us catch all this heat KNOWING how unkind you were to some of our crew members or directors? The outbursts, profanity, saying you hoped the show was cancelled etc? …I can’t stand for verbal or emotional abuse. We had our moment & I took you to the side and we had a GREAT convo! & you listened! However countless others didn’t and things continued on… regardless of how passionate one may be, speaking to people in the manner you did in those countless incidents honestly made my heart sink.”

-Cannes put Diane Kruger on bump watch.

-Walkouts at Cannes screenings are not uncommon, but Lars von Trier‘s The House That Jack Built starring Matt Dillon as a serial killer  prompted over 100 audience members to flee the theater. The first wave of mass walkouts reportedly happened when Dillon’s character shoots two children in the head with a rifle, and the second wave was near the end when Riley Keough‘s character is being mutilated.

Emilia Clarke at Cannes: “Find another adjective, damn it. Enough already with the strong women. Let’s just be women.”

Kristen Stewart doesn’t care about Cannes’ red carpet rules. After posing for a few pictures in her complete outfit at Monday’s premiere of Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, she took off her heels and went barefoot on the red carpet.

Cardi B is apologizing for using the d-word in “Girls” her collab with Rita Ora, Charli XCX and Bebe Rexha. “I know i have use words before that i wasn’t aware that they are offensive to the LGBT community. I apologize for that. Not everybody knows the correct ‘terms’ to use. I learned and i stopped using it.”

-U2’s Bono and The Edge  become Ellen DeGeneres’ assistants for the day in today’s episode.

-This is a great interview with reporter Jim DeRogatis, who broke the R. Kelly story back in 2000, has been covering it ever since and is ready for others to care about it.

-This profile on Marti Noxon left me so conflicted. I really enjoyed the book Dietland and am looking forward to the adaptation. Her justification for season 6 of Buffy though and the re-positioning it as a precursor to shows like Jessica Jones and Fleabag…I just can’t. The wound is still too raw.

-Oh man, this piece on why David Letterman didn’t have female writers on his staff includes a perfect zinger from Merrill Markoe: “Because we were having sex, maybe he remembers me as an intern.”

Greg Berlanti just set a new record with 14 series on air, which is insane.

-Also insane: Netflix will premiere an estimated 470 new originals between now and the end of 2018.

-This is a great Chris Evans story.

New Girl ends tonight and even though I didn’t always watch in the later seasons, I’m going to miss it. Some of my favourite moments: Nick and Tran in the poolGave me cookie, got me cookie, the chicken danceJess’s rant on her brand of feminism, Nick’s attempt at burpees, and of course the hottest kiss ever.

-The guy who played Schmidt won’t be out of work for long. Max Greenfield is taking over as the lead in one of CBS’s new sitcoms.

-Oh yeah, I’m going to watch the crap out of this Netflix movie about Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs getting parent-trapped by their assistants.

-Watch Rami Malek channel his inner Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody: The Movie‘s first official teaser trailer.

-Last night the Elle Magazine Women in Entertainment event was held in Los Angeles, and actresses didn’t hold anything back. Reese Witherspoon revealed she was sexually assaulted by a director at 16. Jennifer Lawrence told a harrowing story about being put in a nude lineup.  And Kristen Stewart (god, I love her) reminded everyone to protect the below-the-line females on sets, saying “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve saved makeup artists — because it trickled down, too — and camera assistants from DPs who are like, ‘woo woo.’… And when I say saved, I mean momentarily been like, “Don’t, fucker!” And they are embarrassed for one second but it just keeps going every single day. So I’d say let’s be aware of this on every level. Those girls are as duct-taped as one could possibly be because they are in fear of getting their next job, as every is actress, too, same deal.”

-In an essay for the New Yorker, Molly Ringwald recalled years of harassment when she was a teen star. “When I was thirteen, a fifty-year-old crew member told me that he would teach me to dance, and then proceeded to push against me with an erection. At fourteen, a married film director stuck his tongue in my mouth on set.” She also seems to call out Dreamworks chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg.

-Game of Thrones star Lena Headey  took to Twitter to talk about her experience with Harvey Weinstein, and also recalled being subjected to “endless bullying by the director Terry Gilliam.”  The floodgates are open, y’all!

Mayim Bialik clarified her comments about sexual assault after being accused of victim blaming. In the words for @ira: keep it.

-And now Bob Weinstein is also being accused of sexual harassment.

Sophie Turner‘s engagement ring costs over $25,000? But…it’s pear shaped!

Blake Lively‘s menswear outfit is ridiculous and I love it.

-The royal countdown has officially begun! Kate Middleton and Prince William announced that their third child is due in April 2018.

Christian Bale says Heath Ledger wanted him to hit him for real during the Dark Knight’s interrogation scene.

Bryan Cranston looks great on the cover of Esquire.

-Netflix’s price keeps creeping up along with its subscriber numbers. Is it going to be worth it much longer?

-The reason the price keeps rising? They are planning 80 movies next year. (For context: this quarter they’re only doing 8.)

-I kind of got out of The Flash, but this clip makes it look like it’s going back to its funny roots. Finally!

-Oh, but the CW superhero shows are going to turn their heroes into Nazis. Cause people really responded so well when that happened to Captain America?!

-Meanwhile, Netflix revealed that Gilmore Girls was their fasted-watched original series. Yes, I remember that weekend of disappointment well…

-I really enjoyed this article on the art of the TV series finale.

-The trailer for the next season of UnReal actually looks pretty great. It helps that it doesn’t return until February, which gives us lots of time to forget how bad that last season was.
