tenet ew cover robert pattinson

-Promo for Tenet is continuing as if the movie will still open next month, with John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki interviewed by EW. (From the photos I assumed they were nowhere near each other during the cover shoot but the video suggests otherwise.)

Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves opened up about their philanthropic work to help students in need in the new issue of Town & Country.

-Lots of baby news today: Michelle Williams and Thomas Kail have welcomed their first child together.

Kristen Wiig and fiancé Avi Rothman welcomed twins via surrogate earlier this year.

-In other happy news, Raven-Symone married Miranda Maday in a surprise ceremony today.

-I didn’t think it would happen but here we are: Danny Masterson of That ’70s Show and The Ranch has been charged with raping three women at his home between 2001 and 2003. He is maintaining his innocence. Leah Remini, who put a spotlight on the accusations by interviewing the women on her show last summer, reacted on Twitter, saying “This is just the beginning Scientology, your days of getting away with it is coming to an end!”

Jennifer Lawrence joined Twitter to issue a statement about the death of Breonna Taylor.

Lonnie Chavis, one of the child stars of This Is Us, has written an essay in People about the experience of growing up Black.

Angelina Jolie penned an emotional piece about the refugee crisis for Time.

-Glad to see I’m not the only one who think the CW’s new blocking trolls policy is too little, too late. I noticed the Candice Patton hate from trolls since the second she was cast, and I didn’t even follow The Flash fandom. I was more tuned into Arrow’s and saw replies to the official accounts that were absolutely brutal to Emily Bett Rickards. It also extends to how CW actress’ roles are written.

-Ah poop. Racist tweets from Megan Amram have surfaced. She apologized but jeez that’s a bad look.

-Sopranos star James Gandolfini once said he was ready to “beat the f**k out” of Harvey Weinstein. Of only.

Fiona Apple is donating all proceeds from TV and movie placements for two songs from her new album to charity for the next two years. Royalties from “Shameika” will go to the Harlem Children’s Zone, while the “Heavy Balloons” proceeds will go to Seeding Sovereignty. Showrunners and music supervisors should stick these songs in everywhere. I don’t want to turn on a TV show or watch a movie trailer without hearing “Shameika said I had potential!”

-A spinoff of Daria has just been ordered, which makes my Gen X heart happy.

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly appear to be going strong – they’re now Instagram official.

Lady Gaga was out shopping with her boyfriend and didn’t want to pose with a fan for a photo (understandable) so she gave the fan her leather jacket off her back instead.

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is heading to Hungary for reshoots.

Bryce Dallas Howard makes her feature directorial debut with her new Apple+ documentary, Dads, which features Will Smith, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Neil Patrick Harris, Judd Apatow and more.

Nicole Kidman Reflects on Family and Fame

Nicole Kidman Tatler Bombshell

Nicole Kidman is kicking off the Bombshell promo tour with her Tatler cover story, in which she talks about the death of her father (“My three-year-old said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, y’know, you have to be OK. Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’’t going to fall apart. Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally”).

Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson that is narrated by a talking glove. I hate all of those words.

-In a nice change of pace, Tom Hanks read some nice tweets.

Sia went to Walmart and TJ Maxx yesterday and paid everyone’s bills, telling people her name was Cici and she’d recently won the lottery.

John Boyega remains a delight.

Seth Meyers had his parents and brother on the show and they seem wonderfully well-adjusted and normal.

Beck has distanced himself from Scientology, saying “My father has been a Scientologist for a long time. But I’ve pretty much just focused on my music and my work for most of my life, and tended to do my own thing.” Leah Remini, however, is not buying it: “You can’t be married to a Scientology family such as the Ribisi family and not be fully on board. To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”

Sandra Bullock was at Jennifer Aniston’s Friendsgiving, as was Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Justin Theroux.

Chrissy Teigen turned John Legend’s ‘Sexiest Man’ People cover into pajamas for everyone to wear at Thanksgiving and I think I’m in love with her.

Dakota Johnson continues to be the most awkward person ever in interviews.

-Here’s video of Jennifer Garner losing her poo when Julie Andrews called her.

-French director Luc Besson could be hit with a 10-month suspended prison sentence — and not for the reasons you’d think. He allegedly fired his assistant illegally when she was on medical leave.

-It’s been a rough week in K-pop. Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon have been sentenced to prison terms on charges of sexual assault.

-Another week, another celeb: Jane Fonda recruited Paul Scheer for today’s “Fire Drill Friday” protests.

-It’s Black Friday or, as gossip hounds know it, CDAN blind item reveal day.

-The E.T. short is cute. Yes, it’s a commercial, but it’s still cute.

Lil Nas X Adjusts to Sudden Superstardom

Lil Nas X of “Old Town Road” fame is on the cover of Time magazine, where he reveals what prompted him to come out and how he’s dealing with his instant fame.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s camps are out in full force, trying to push their sides of the story.

Lana Condor posted a pic from the set of the third To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before — before Netflix officially confirmed they’re making it. They did, however, announce that the second film will drop on Netflix in February. (That second book is *rough*, especially if you’re a fan of Peter Kavinsky. I’m worried.)

Cardi B interviewed Bernie Sanders for his YouTube channel. Look, I don’t roll with the Bernie Bros but I can watch Cardi waxing poetic about FDR’s New Deal forever.

-This dinner for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez featured pretty much every guest star who’s been on Desus and Mero show this season — and then some.

-I dig this Vanity Fair photo shoot with eight Emmy nominees: Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Margaret Qualley (Fosse/Verdon), Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Jared Harris (Chernobyl), Don Cheadle (Black Monday), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), and Niecy Nash (When They See Us).

Drew Barrymore is getting a daytime talk show and I kind of love this as a next step for her.

-Four alleged victims are suing Danny Masterson and the church of Scientology for stalking and conspiracy to cover up sexual assaults. Meanwhile, Leah Remini is ending her A&E show with a two-hour special finale, airing August 26, that’ll focus allegations that Scientology policies have hindered members from reporting sexual assault and physical violence. THR reports the episode will feature interviews with two of the women who’ve accused Masterson of assault.

Abby Quinn has just been cast as the daughter in the Mad About You reboot, so I guess that’s still happening. (I just saw her in a movie last night with Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore, which was really bad but she was fine.)

-I always like this annual interview with TV network bosses about which show they regretted letting get away.

-For someone who has read Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice a ridiculous amount of times, I’ve somehow never got around to reading Jane Austen‘s unfinished book Sanditon. (But I did watch a web series adaptation! Does that count??) In any case, the trailer for Andrew Davies‘ adaptation is very much my shit.

-Here’s the trailer for Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life starring Matthias Schoenaerts (and some other people, but I’m only here for MS).
