Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Never-ending Wedding

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Wedding

-If you thought you already knew everything about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding — you’d probably be right. But they’re still on the new cover of People and all over Hello!’s social media. Good for them for wringing every last cent from the festivities, I guess.

-Meanwhile, this tongue-in-cheek deep-dive into the validity of their relationship is hilarious. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December the 2, and I’ll tell you why I think so.”

-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer looks amazing on the cover of Wonderland. I hope she becomes a huge star.

-Great forking news: The Good Place just got an early renewal for season 4, so maybe 2018 isn’t a total garbage fire.

Meghan Markle and Michelle Obama chatted privately last night when the royal stopped by the former first lady’s London book tour.

-Meanwhile, here’s more scoop on who’s leaking all those stories from the palace.

-GQ interviewed a bunch of people about the late Anthony Bourdain and collected their stories, and goddammit the resulting article made me weepy. “He turned to Tony and said, ‘How far can you keep going? Where else can you go? You can’t go to the moon!’ And Tony goes, ‘Really? Why not? I’ll go to the moon and make an episode on the moon. I’ll go anywhere.'”

-The CW is developing a Jane The Virgin spin-off series that will be written by long-time show writer Valentina Garza and will involve Gina Rodriguez.

Kayne West apologized after being caught on his phone at Cher‘s Broadway show. (This is in no way an excuse, but apparently the show is really, really bad.)

-Wait, Demi Moore allegedly has a secret girlfriend? I can’t believe I missed this until now!

-Netflix will reportedly pay WarnerMedia $100M in 2019 to continue streaming Friends (up from $30M). This is NUTS — especially because it will soon be available on another streaming site next year.

-BBC just announced that Luther will air on New Year’s Day. Perfect hangover cure!

-The big guns came out for Ryan Murphy’s Walk of Fame star ceremony, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson.

-The Actors on Actors interviews always result in some interesting pairings. The latest has Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone talking about dealing with rejection, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o discussing women in Hollywood, Charlize Theron and Michael B Jordan talking about the impact of Black Panther, and Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda talking about writing Shallow.

-Variety’s list of 10 directors to watch for 2019 includes 6 women.

-People are loving the new Captain Marvel trailer. (Though I’m not quite sure why people are calling it a “course correction” because I loved the first trailer too.)

Taraji P. Henson Stands Up For Herself

Taraji P. Henson looks amazing on the cover of InStyle. (The subscribers’ cover is even better.) In the interview, she says execs tried to convince her that she wouldn’t do well internationally: “Hollywood executives would tell me that I don’t have fans all the way over there… Then we go to Paris, and it’s standing room only in a room with 1,500 seats. I cried…You can’t let people tell you shit.” (I really wish they would have asked her about whatever the hell happened to torpedo the marketing campaign for Proud Mary. That movie was inexplicably, unforgivably, intentionally buried.)

-New court documents revealed that Kesha and Lady Gaga exchanged text messages about how “mean” Katy Perry was being. Gaga then took to Twitter to explain: “These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.”

Ariana Grande pays homage to Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, 13 Going on 30, and Bring It On in her new video for “thank u, next.” (Bless Mark Ruffalo for saying he’s celebrating with Razzles.)

-Grande’s new video is overshadowing Miley Cyrus’ latest, which tackles heavy issues like gun control and police brutality.

-On Watch What Happens Live, Megan Fox admitted to hooking up with Transformers costar Shia LaBeouf.

-People who weren’t paying attention seemed surprised that Netflix cancelled Daredevil, but seeing what happened with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, it’s clear they’re getting out of the Marvel business. Everyone is expecting the new seasons of Jessica Jones and Punisher will be their last. Don’t expect them to move over to Disney’s new streaming service, either. And even if Marvel is hinting that we’ll still see more Daredevil in the future, it’s likely it will be a whole new take.

Jennifer Garner toasted Bradley Cooper by reminding him of all his middling TV appearances — including on Alias. (“It wasn’t until I heard him speaking French to a background artist on set one day that I went ‘wait a minute, is Bradley handsome?!'”)

-I love that Grownish is recreating the title credits from A Different World.

-Facebook Watch has added Buffy, Angel and Firefly to their streaming service. Dammit, that’s smart.

Connie Britton is on a new TV show that’s doing well, and I don’t have time to watch it. That’s where we are in this era of peak TV.

-Is Prince Charles‘ birthday the real reason behind all the negative stories coming out about Prince Harry and Prince William lately?

-Yikes. Prince Andrew has been linked to the Jeffrey Epstein scandal involving underage girls.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are still at it.

-I really want to see The Favourite, but calling it a prequel to Phantom Thread does not to it any favours if you ask me.

Roma will be streaming on Netflix soon, but if you’re in one of the few cities where it’s getting a theatrical release, you should see it on the big screen. Critics are falling over themselves to praise this one.

Diane Kruger, Steve Carell and Eiza González star in the new Welcome to Marwen trailer.

 

Claire Foy Is Having a Moment

claire_foy_first-man-spiders-web

Claire Foy is everywhere these days. She’s promoting both First Man and the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel, which has landed her on the covers of Vogue, Porter Magazine, and The Hollywood Reporter (my fave look).

-A Taffy Brodesser-Akner profile is always worth your time. In her latest, she interviews Melissa McCarthy while indoor skydiving.

-In an Instagram story, Ariana Grande says she’s taking a social media break following her split from Pete Davidson: “time to say bye bye again to the internet for jus a lil bit. it’s hard not to bump news n stuff that i’m not tryna see rn. it’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep goin.”

Lady Gaga‘s explanation of why she wore menswear-inspired look to the Elle Women in Film Awards last night is pretty damn powerful.

-Also at the Elle event, Shonda Rhimes revealed that she’s the highest paid showrunner in television — and that she allowed the press to under-report her deal with Netflix. “When Ryan [Murphy] made his amazing deal with Netflix, what did he do? He shouted his salary to the world and he did this gorgeous cover shoot and photo for The Hollywood Reporter and he deserved every minute of it. I applaud him. When I made a deal with Netflix, I let them interview my salary wrong in the press, and then I did as few interviews as possible and I put my head down and worked. In other words, I hid.”

-At her tribute to Sarah Paulson at the Elle event, Sandra Bullock revealed that her dad and her two dogs all died within the last few weeks.

-Twist! After Drake discussed feeling betrayed that Kanye West told Pusha T about his secret son, Pusha said he actually found out about it from Drake’s producer and BFF Noah “40” Shebib.

-Netflix announced that the next season of Orange Is the New Black will be its last.

-I really need to see this video of a little boy stroking Prince Harry’s beard today.

-It’s only Wednesday, but this definitely takes the cake for the weirdest headline of the week: A Riverdale actor denies conspiring with Courtney Love to murder Frances Bean‘s ex-husband.

-Blumhouse has never made a horror movie with a female director, so a reporter asked Jason Blum why. His response leaves a lot to be desired.

Busy Phillips‘ new book comes out this week and it sounds deliciously dishy. (I’m just going to pretend I didn’t read the part about Joshua Jackson being a mansplainer...)

-Speaking of Joshua Jackson, now that pot is legal in Canada everyone on my Twitter TL is sharing this clip of Jackson and Gord Downie getting high in One Week. I LOVED that movie!

-I’ve seen both of the movies that Nicole Kidman is getting Oscar buzz for (Boy Erased and Destroyer), but Destroyer is the one that’s stayed with me longest. The way she changes how she moves in the flashbacks with Sebastian Stan versus the present day storyline as a bitter cop is phenomenal.
