Kristen Stewart Keeps It Real in Harper’s Bazaar

kristen-stewart-harpers-bazaar

-In her new Harper’s Bazaar cover story, Kristen Stewart talks about being true to herself (“I’ve fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.’ I don’t want to work with people like that”) and moving past her Twilight phase (“I try to avoid the word ‘awkward’. I want to reclaim that word, because it’s been used too violently against me”).

Stewart joins Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Lili Reinhart, King Princess, and more in Rodarte’s Spring Lookbook. These photos are 😍

-FFS. She’s starring in the two buzziest movies this fall (Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story and Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit), so I don’t know why Scarlett Johansson isn’t trying harder to steer clear of controversy. Like, she literally has to just avoid saying something stupid and she’ll coast to an Oscar nom. And yet here she is in her new THR cover story defending — with very little prompting, I might add — Woody Allen. “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime…I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”

-Will we ever really know what happened with Brangelina and the kids on that plane? Probably not, but Brad Pitt is coming clean about having issues with alcohol. In a new interview with the New York Times, he talks about getting sober (“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges”) and going to AA for a year and a half (“You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard. It was this safe space where there was little judgment and therefore little judgment of yourself. It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There’s great value in that”).

Dwayne Johnson had to leave his honeymoon early to fill in for an injured Kevin Hart on the debut of Kelly Clarkson’s talk show. (I’m really bummed for her that Hart was her first booked guest. She deserves better.)

Lil Nas X held his own and did really, really well despite Kevin Hart‘s attempts to gaslit him about his choice to come out. The internet was def on Lil Nas X’s side.

-Almost one year after Mac Miller‘s death, a man has been charged in connection with his passing for selling counterfeit pharmaceutical drugs containing fentanyl to Miller, two days before his death.

-Yikes. The Crazy Rich Asians co-writer has left the sequel amid a pay disparity dispute. Sources say that Warner Bros. offered Adele Lim $110,000-plus — while offering co-writer Peter Chiarelli $800,000 to $1 million (he later volunteered to split his fee with her). “Pete has been nothing but incredibly gracious, but what I make shouldn’t be dependent on the generosity of the white-guy writer,” Lim said. “If I couldn’t get pay equity after CRA, I can’t imagine what it would be like for anyone else, given that the standard for how much you’re worth is having established quotes from previous movies, which women of color would never have been [hired for]. There’s no realistic way to achieve true equity that way.” So basically the WB sold the first film on its groundbreaking representation — but is willing to endanger the sequel by underpaying because of sexism.

-It’s time for the People’s Choice Awards nominations — the only awards show where Riverdale could possibly lead the way.

-Meanwhile, the Riverdale photos released for the Season 4 premiere show the cast paying tribute to Luke Perry.

-Here’s a guide to when all the Fall TV shows are premiering.

-This is a great, great interview with Jeremy Strong, who might be doing better work on Succession than anyone else on TV at the moment.

Olivia Wilde talked to THR about her film Booksmart’s box office battle, defending the (weird? wrong?) decision to immediately open wide instead of starting with a limited run and building off word-of-mouth a la Ladybird.

Justin Bieber is getting plenty of celebrity support for his emotional Instagram post.

-Uh, Dakota Fanning may not have been my first choice to play an Ethiopian Muslim refugee in a movie.

-Here’s our very first glimpse of Birds of Prey, 2020 in a teaser that’s playing before the new IT movie.

-I didn’t know I needed another installment of the Bad Boys movies until I saw the new Bad Boys for Life trailer and yeah, gimmie!

Lizzo and Missy Elliott Drop New Video

-I adore Lizzo’s new video for Tempo featuring Missy Elliott. (My day job is social media and I’ve never taken Tik Tok seriously I saw Lizzo use it in this vid…)

Lili Reinhart continues to cast doubt on those reports that she and Cole Sprouse have split, tweeting “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet, kids. And news sources should try a little harder to be less vile. “Reliable sources” can kiss my ass.”

In her new song with Chance the Rapper, Nicki Minaj seems to imply she’s pregnant and engaged to boyfriend Kenneth Petty.

-A movie studio has asked Vox to remove an article because it contains (very clearly marked) spoilers about a film that is in theatres now, which is beyond ridiculous. Once your movie is out in the world, you can’t police how it’s being talked about. (I’m assuming it’s this one about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s ending.)

-The Handmaid’s Tale is getting a season four. This surprises me.

Jessie J will not be taking questions about Channing Tatum at this time, kthnxbai.

-I’m confused by Colin Farrell’s choice of gym clothes. Are those…hiking boots?

-Gossip Girl producers say the new show will be more of a continuation than a reboot. So will there be descendants of the original characters?

Johnny Depp‘s $50M defamation suit against Amber Heard is allowed to proceed in Virginia.

-This Endgame deleted scene is very sad and I’m glad it was cut because I was already destroyed in the theatre and Steve kneeling would have killed me dead. Also it explains how Gamora left.

Are Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart Still Dating After All?

cole-sprouse-Lili-Reinhart-cover-W

-Well, this is awkward — or is it? W’s just dropped their latest cover story, in which Riverdale costars Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart open up about love, the show, and what their future holds — just days after reports about the pair splitting up. They refused to be interviewed together when they talked to the mag in May (maybe seeing the writing on the wall?) but today they both promoted the cover on IG with posts that have their fans wondering if they really did split after all. Reinhart wrote “BREAKING: A reliable source has confirmed that none of you know shit” while at the very same moment Sprouse posted “UNPRECEDENTED: Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart consume the flesh of ‘reliable sources’ to fuel their bacchanalian sex cult.”

-The speculation continues that Diddy is dating Steve Harvey’s 22-year-old daughter. Not only is she half his age, she used to date his son! That’s gonna make for some awkward family BBQs…

-There’s more rumblings that Constance Wu is acting not so great, this time on the Hustlers press tour. (Although I don’t really get what the big deal is about her publicists allegedly asking publications to mention her first when talking about the film’s cast; she’s the topped billed actor in the credits so that’s not unheard of.)

Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 50th birthday with a banger of a party. I love that her birthday dress was designed by Donatella Versace — the same person who designed the Grammy dress that launched JLo into the stratosphere. (Did you know that dress was the reason Google Images was created? True story.)

-Orange Is The New Black’s Taryn Manning insists she’s not suicidal after posting a troubling rant on Instagram. I’ve loved her since Weirdsville and want only good things for her.

Nicole Kidman claims she’s embarrassed that hubby Keith Urban has a lyric about her that goes “She’s a maniac in the bed, but a brainiac in the head.” Surrrrrrre she is.

-Queer Eye’s Tan France has a web series called Dressing Funny, and the season finale featured Pete Davidson. (Which was good, but not as good as the episode that featured Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch.)

-This year marks a new low for female directors at the Venice Film Festival. Out of the 21 films in competition, only 2 are directed by women. (Meanwhile here at home, TIFF announced its gala lineup earlier this week and 50% of titles are directed or co-directed by women — a record number for the fest.)

-Hollywood is closely watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s opening box office this weekend, considering it a test for audience’s appetite for original, adult-skewing Hollywood tentpoles amid franchises and sequels. Meh. I want more adult-driven films but I have zero desire to see this one — mostly because of reviews like this.

-This featurette for Where’d You Go, Bernadette really makes me want to see this movie — despite all the behind-the-scenes drama and delays.

-The Zombieland 2 trailer is here and it’s making me so happy! (I love that it’s called Zombieland: Double Tap.)
