Sarah Jessica Parker Returns to Vogue


-In anticipation of And Just Like That, Sarah Jessica Parker graces the new issue of Vogue. She talks about the reaction to photos from the SATC reboot (“There’s so much misogynist chatter in response to us that would never. Happen. About. A. Man. ‘Gray hair gray hair gray hair. Does she have gray hair?’ I’m sitting with Andy Cohen and he has a full head of gray hair, and he’s exquisite. Why is it okay for him?”) and talks about juggling career with family (“I don’t have any tips and tricks, except that I’m incredibly fortunate that I have childcare and a partner, because so many mothers who work two and three jobs do not”).

-Meanwhile, Kim Cattrall has joined the cast of Peacock’s Queer As Folk.

-DeuxMoi has been hinting at it for weeks, but now it seems like Victoria Pedretti really is dating her You co-star Dylan Arnold. Even though their characters’ age difference was a big plot point on the show, he’s actually a year older than her.

-Succession’s best couple is Tom and Greg, so I’m thrilled that EW did a whole feature on Nicholas Braun and Matthew Macfadyen. Those videos!

-In an interview with The Times, Kirsten Dunst spoke about filming The Power Of The Dog in New Zealand when the pandemic struck. “We would go to the grocery store and take off our clothes and wipe down afterwards. No one knew anything, it was terrifying, and at the time I smoked so I was like, ‘Oh my God, if I get this I am gonna die.’ ”

Prince Harry said he had warned Jack Dorsey before January 6th that Twitter was being used to plan a coup. “I warned him that his platform was allowing a coup to be staged. That email was sent the day before and then that happened and I haven’t heard from him since.”

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle says she supports paid leave. “I think this is one of those issues that is not red or blue. We can all agree that people need support certainly when they’ve just had a child. Paid leave, from my standpoint, is just a humanitarian issue.”

Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to play Jim Jones in a movie about the Peoples Temple. Ooh boy, this could go really wrong.

-Early reaction to House of Gucci is all over the place, though most critics seem impressed by Lady Gaga’s performance.

-I love that People included SNL’s Bowen Yang in their Sexiest Man Alive issue.

Aaron Rodgers reportedly didn’t expect all the blowback but is standing by his anti-v*x comments. “I don’t only talk to ‘yes’ people or people who allow me to live in an echo chamber of my own thoughts and beliefs.” Which is exactly what that community is but sure.

Carrie Underwood‘s husband Mike Fisher defended him, saying “I agree with him in that the science clearly shows the vaccinated spread covid at basically the same rate as the unvaccinated.” Which is not true.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is, as always, the voice of reason, saying Rodgers “does not have the right to endanger people around him.”

-Oh Demi Lovato, what are you doing?!

Jennifer Garner dressed her dog up like some of her most popular characters. Bless her.

Jamie Dornan sang at the Belfast premiere party this week. People that pretty shouldn’t also be so talented. It’s not fair.

-Search Party’s search is nearly over — the HBO Max comedy will end in January with its fifth and final season. I love this show but that makes sense.

-In news that will surprise no one, season two of Squid Game is already in the works.

Anya Taylor-Joy’s Flower Power

Anya Taylor-Joy poses with sunflowers on the cover of InStyle

Anya Taylor-Joy covers Instyle’s Beauty Issue. She talks about how her friends keep her grounded (“I also have great friends who tease me mercilessly if I even hint at being overworked or stressed. They’re like, ‘Oh yeah, honey, it’s so sad that you have to go get on a plane and go do whatever'”) and learning boundaries (“I really struggle with wanting to give everybody everything all of the time”).

-Besides Dune, her new movie (Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho) is the hottest ticket at TIFF. A new trailer dropped today and it’s both creepy and intriguing.

-Big news broke last night: Jamie Spears asked a judge to end his daughter’s 13-year conservatorship. There’s chatter that he didn’t want to deal with the “pressure” Britney’s new attorney has kept up on him, accusing him of abusing his power over her and of dissipating her estate. He also resisted Jamie’s attempts to be compensated for stepping down as her conservator, saying there was nothing to negotiate and that Jamie should resign immediately.

-Though this is a good step forward, ending her conservatorship likely won’t be a quick process.

-Last night’s other big news: John Mulaney appeared on Seth Meyers’s show last night and spoke candidly about his intervention and subsequent trip to rehab, and confirmed he and Olivia Munn are expecting. Meanwhile, the discourse around him has grown exhausting. I think two things can be true at the same time: people are very invested in his personal life because he’s made that such a huge part of his standup that they’re now pushing back against (unjustified) feelings of betrayal, but also he traded on his rep as Hollywood’s “good guy/non-toxic celeb/the marriage guy” a little too heavily to make the timeline of events (not to mention his ex wife’s reactions) sit well with some folks. This thread pretty much nails it.

-Speaking of the timeline, he opened the interview with some clarification (or revision?). He said he first went to rehab in September last year, split from his ex-wife in October, then relapsed and went back to rehab for two months, and didn’t start dating Munn until the spring.

Kylie Jenner announced that she and Travis Scott are going to have another baby with this cute Instagram video, and fans are convinced she hinted it’s a boy.

Bennifer Rises!

-Bennifer is back, baby! 17 years after calling off their engagement, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were spotted on a romantic vacation in Montana.

-So the Golden Globes are pretty much dead, huh? Netflix kicked things off on Friday by announcing they were “stopping any activities” with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association until changes were made about their lack of diversity, and Amazon quickly followed suit. Then today, NBC announced it wouldn’t air the show next year, stars like Scarlett Johansson, Ava DuVernay and Mark Ruffalo called them out, and Tom Cruise GAVE BACK the awards he’s won over the years as a sign of protest. (Hopefully we’ll finally get justice for Brendan Fraser.)

John Mulaney and his wife Annamarie Tendler are splitting up after six years of marriage — and it seems like it was his decision. In a statement to People via her rep, she said “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.”

Gal Gadot says Joss Whedon treated her badly on the Justice League set: “He kind of threatened my career and said if I did something, he would make my career miserable. I handled it on the spot.” That lines up with what a source told the Hollywood Reporter in their exposé about it: “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.”

Aubrey Plaza confirmed that she’s married to her longtime boyfriend Jeff Baena — and the internet was weirdly mad about it.

-I really loved this interview with Sierra Teller Ornelas, the Native co-creator of Rutherford Falls.

-He was asked about it when promoting his new memoir, which is getting rave reviews.

-Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed — but Jesse Williams is leaving the show. (Though he and Sarah Drew teased a spinoff about their characters.)

-There’s an oral history of Tom Holland‘s performance of “Umbrella”!

-Amid all the controversy about Doctor Who actor Noel Clarke, his costar John Barrowman has apologized for repeatedly exposing himself on set. I remember the Arrow cast talking about him doing this all the time like it was a funny joke. David Boreanaz used to brag about doing this on the Buffy set, too.

-In case you missed this wildly depressing news last week, LaKeith Stanfield moderated a Clubhouse chat dedicated to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories where Jews were repeatedly compared to Satanists and termites.

Dave Bautista is set to join the cast of Knives Out 2.

-I’m not sure why the New York Post thinks Leonardo DiCaprio looks unrecognizable in the first photos of the new Scorsese film. He looks like he always does? (The replies to their tweet are hilarious.)

-Actually unrecognizable is Lily James as Pamela Anderson. Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee still looks like Sebastian Stan, though.
