-In a new, frank interview with Vanity FairKate Winslet reevaluates her career choices, asking “What the fuck was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski?” She adds: “I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both. I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be fucking truthful about all of it?” Well, that’s one way to kick off an awards campaign!

-I guess those reports of Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly dating were legit.

-Congrats to Leighton Meester and Adam Brody, who welcomed a new baby boy.

Lindsay Lohan is being sued for promising to write a book and taking the advance — and then not writing the book.

Jennifer Garner had the best response when a fan commented to ask whether she’s pregnant with her fourth child: “I am 48, have three healthy kids and I am not — and never will be — pregnant. Can we lay that pupper to rest. Have I gained the covid 19? Possibly. But that is another story.”

-Season 46 of SNL will premiere on October 3, and things are looking back to normal — the show will air live at 11:30 p.m. from its usual home in Studio 8H at 30 Rock.

-Wonder Woman 1984’s release date has been pushed again — this time to Christmas.  This movie isn’t coming out this year. Dune either.

Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch and Paula Pell played Jimmy Fallon’s aunts and gave everyone tips for staying in touch in quarantine.

-A viral tweet claiming Cuties sexualizes a young Black girl has led to thousands of people (and QAn*n) calling for Netflix to dump the film. But critics who’ve seen it say the movie is actually an argument about the effect of near-pornography on young girls.

-Amazon released the first look at Regina King’s directorial debut One Night in Miami, a look at the night when Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke found themselves in the same room.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel: New Parents?

-The Daily Mail is reporting that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have welcomed a new baby following a “super-secret pregnancy” — and so far, there’s been no denials. If true, the timing suggests she was pregnant when those photos of him looking cozy with his costar surfaced in Nov.

-Speaking of surprising baby news, Nicki Minaj is pregnant. I love every one of her announcement photos.

Kanye West hosted the first campaign event for his bewildering presidential run over the weekend, and it was predictably messy. He broke down in tears, said his dad wanted to abort him, claimed that he and Kim Kardashian considered not having North, and said Harriet Tubman never actually freed slaves.

-People reports the Kim is “furious” he discussed North.

-A hostess at a fancy NYC restaurant posted a TikTok rating celebrities guests she’s encountered. The Hadid sisters, Beyonce and Josh Peck got 10/10 for being incredibly kind, while Kylie Jenner got 2/10 for tipping $20 on a $500 bill, and Hailey Bieber got 3.5/10 for being “not nice.” (Hailey has since tweeted an apology.)

Amber Heard gave testimony to the British High Court today that she was afraid her ex-husband Johnny Depp was going to kill her, saying “Some incidents were so severe that I was afraid he was going to kill me, either intentionally or just by losing control and going too far. He explicitly threatened to kill me many times, especially later in our relationship.”

-She also said he was irrationally jealous of her costars and had nasty nicknames for them, including Leo ‘pumpkin-head’ DiCaprio, Channing ‘potato-head’ Tatum and Jim ‘turd’ Sturgess’.

August Alsina is milking every last drop of fame he can from his affair with Jada Pinkett Smith. He just dropped a new song entitled — you guessed it! — “Entanglements.”

-Vanity Fair’s Mo Ryan just dropped another stunner of a TV expose. She talked to 30 people who worked with Peter Lenkov, former showrunner of Hawaii Five-0, Magnum P.I., and MacGyver about alleged bullying, abuse & other serious problems they encountered. Kudos to McGyver star Lucas Till for being one of the ones to go on the record about Lenkov’s alleged bullying and body-shaming, despite what that might mean for his career. “I’ve never worked this hard in my life, and I am fine with hard work,” said Till. “But the way Peter treats people is just unacceptable. I was suicidal that first year on the show, because of the way he made me feel. But the way he’s treated the people around me—that’s just my breaking point.” Through his lawyer, Lenkov denied all allegations.

-Some are saying the only reason he was fired is because CBS knew this article was coming.

-Not surprising: Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet isn’t going to make its August release date after all. Sort of surprising: when announcing it, Warner Bros put out a press release that included 9 “off the record” paragraphs warning/scolding media about their coverage. Um,  “off the record” only exists if both parties agree to it beforehand, not if you send an unsolicited email. Secondly, nothing in a press release can be off the record — the whole point of press releases is to make a public announcement!

-I really like Princess Beatrice’s wedding dress.

-Disney+ released the trailer for Black Is King, the new Lion King-inspired “visual album”/film written and directed by Beyoncé that comes out later this month. It features cameos from Kelly Rowland, Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong’o, and Jay-Z.

Rihanna Covers British Vogue

Rihanna British Vogue

Rihanna on British Vogue is what the world needs right now. In the interview, she promises that she is “very aggressively working on new music,” says she gets anxiety before public appearances (“Oh, I’m nervous before even getting in the car to go to something. It can be devastating. And when I pull up to the red carpet, I’m like ‘Are you kidding me?’ I left the Grammys one time. Left! In the middle of my hair and make-up. My hair half up, half of my lash on”), and reveals she’s very involved in Fenty Beauty (“I write all of the copy for the websites, the product descriptions, product names, the colour names. I do have a huge team, but I just don’t necessarily think their tone is mine. I’d feel like a fraud selling something that I can’t stand by”).

-This is making so many people so happy right now: Christopher Meloni is bringing his Law & Order: SVU character back to television. The actor will return as Elliot Stabler in a new, yet untitled NBC series centered around his character that hails from L&O mastermind Dick Wolf.

-The best thing about all the late night hosts doing at-home shows is that now we can judge all of their houses.

-I don’t know why I’m surprised that Gwyneth Paltrow watched Tiger King, but here I am.

Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke talk about being the first celebrities to get hit with a coronavirus hoax. They seems super sweet together.

-Speaking of sweet, The Star Trek: TNG cast had a video chat to celebrate Marina Sirtis’s birthday.

-Veronica Mars’ Ryan Hansen posted a video of him singing happy birthday for costar Jason Dohring. The best bit: “Feel free to comment below about how much you love Jason, happy birthday, all that stuff. If it’s about the show, email me. We can talk about it there. wedidnotwriteit@actor.com.” Man, that poor cast must have been bombarded with complaints after the final episode.

-I like this piece on how entertainment publicists are handling PR in the middle of a global crisis.

Aisha Tyler just released a trailer for a comedy short she did with Stephen Amell.

-The kid who plays Mike on Stranger Things is stirring up gossip and I love it.

Lindsay Lohan has declared she’s “back.” From what is unclear but…yay?

-I don’t know how the NYT is standing by its gushing article of the Internet Archive. Yes, it’s made more than a million books available free online. But it’s doing so by breaking copyright and not paying the authors. NPR also wrote a glowing article on it last week, which they ended up stepping back from after authors called out the site for piracy.

-I definitely agree with this take on how Annie Murphy will be Schitt’s Creek’s greatest legacy. The premise of her next show sounds great so I’m hoping for big things for her.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys reading a children’s book is all kinds of cute.

-Here’s the trailer for Jennifer Lopez’s charitable new reality series on Quibi Thanks A Million, in which 10 celebs each give away $100k to deserving recipients.

-Also premiering in April is Normal People, based on the Sally Rooney book that everyone seemed to fall in love with in 2018. Here’s the trailer:
