Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt Reunite — Virtually

-So far, I don’t think any quarantine content has topped the Happy Endings reunion yet, but the The Fast Times at Ridgemont High live reading that took place last night came a close second. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt shared a cute greeting as well as an extremely risqué scene awkwardly narrated by Morgan Freeman, Shia LeBeouf was so committed he apparently memorized all of his lines, and Julia Roberts just seemed delighted by all the messiness. Watch the full hour video here.

Lady Gaga covers Billboard’s Grammy issue and talks about how Fiona Apple’s Fetch the Bolt Cutters has been getting her through isolation (girl, same), and how she became den mother to a handful of her team who are quarantining with her. I feel really bad for her because I think her new album is great and in any other year it would be taking over the world.

Millie Bobby Brown is Rachel from Friends, Ozark’s Julia Garner dresses as Shiv Roy from Succession, Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy is Emperor Peter from The Great, Normal People’s Paul Mescal pays homage to True Detective, and more.

-Covid keeps messing with TV. ABC, which had already renewed Stumptown, reversed its decision and cancelled the show.

I was stumped about what to ask her and then this news dropped today: she just signed on to play She-Hulk in a new Disney+ Marvel series. Being part of the MCU means I can totally ask her about Chris Evans‘ nudes, right??

Niecy Nash Comes Out with Wedding Announcement

Niecy Nash (whose legal name is Carol Denise) made two announcements with one tweet: that she’s married, and that her new spouse is a woman. Love this for her. (Also, that dress is killer.)

This story is wild. Marisol Nichols, who plays one of the parents on Riverdale, has had a side gig these past few years as an undercover agent in the fight against sex trafficking. She’s been working with the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, acting as “bait” by either playing the part of a parent pimping out a child, or impersonating a child being pimped out to a guy who thinks he is about to have sex with a 12-year-old. Sony Pictures Television just optioned the rights to her story.

Brad Pitt’s new girlfriend Nicole Poturalski is reportedly married and in an open relationship. No judgement, but I’m wondering if her husband is now second-guessing their arrangement.

-Warner Bros reports that Tenet grossed around $53 million in 41 territories outside the U.S. It’s a good start as initial lowball expectations were around $40 million. Weirdly, according to IndieWire the movie studio has taken unprecedented step of blocking Canadian numbers on industry-standard box-office service Comscore.

Bella Thorne has apologized to sex workers and OnlyFans users and says she’ll speak to the site’s executives to about the new restrictions they instituted because of her. This is a great thread explaining how she’s endangered the livelihood of OnlyFans creators. Basically, she advertised a nude photo for $200 but ended up sending a bikini pic, leading to an unprecedented amount of requests on for refunds on the site, which in turn led OnlyFans to set a new $50 limit on the price that creators can charge for pay-per-view content, and limit tipping to $100.

According to Page Six, performers who felt comfortable flying to NYC for it were required to quarantine for three to four days before their scheduled shoot, and shot their bits throughout the last week. Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and Doja Cat all stayed in LA but shot their performances on a green screen to make it look like they were in New York.
