Joe Alwyn has no plans to talk about his relationship with Taylor Swift in the press: “I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I?

-Meanwhile, I just started watching Sex Education and it’s a delight.

Laura Dern‘s new Vanity Fair cover story is making me realize that the world needs more Laura Dern cover stories!

-The rumoured 90201 “reboot” is not actually a reboot or revival after all. As it’s currently being shopped around, it’s actually an hour-long mockumentary-style dramedy that would find former 90210 cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Carteris playing themselves which — maybe let’s just not?

-This is an interesting look at how Tom Cruise‘s wedding to Katie Holmes changed how people view Scientology.

Louis C.K. Steps In It…Again

-An bootlegged hour of audio from Louis C.K.‘s Dec 16th standup routine was leaked an it’s bad. Like stupidly, shockingly tone-deaf, ‘this man has learned nothing’ bad. He makes fun of kids who want to identify as gender neutral before launching into a diatribe against the Parkland survivors. (“You’re not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? You didn’t get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way and now I’ve gotta listen to you talking?”) It’s not that certain topics should be off-limits to comedy, but if you’re going to go there, can’t you say…something? This isn’t funny or probing or interesting; this is just bitter. Here’s a good take on the whole disappointing situation.

-Meanwhile, a Parkland survivor has responded to him: “Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors, I’m right here if you want to talk. Just try to keep it in your pants, ok?”

-That ridiculous, weird video that Kevin Spacey released as soon as news came out that he’s being charged with felony sexual assault  racked up 4.5 million views in the first 24 hours (it’s currently over 8 million).  Meanwhile, despite reports that the case against him includes video evidence, he is reportedly planning to plead not guilty. Today, a judge denied Spacey’s motion that he be excused from appearing in court, which the actor claimed would “amplify the negative publicity.”

Spacey was also photographed wearing a “retired since 2017” hat, so he seems to be taking this super seriously.

-I haven’t gotten around to watching Black Mirror’s choose-your-ending Bandersnatch special, but apparently there are eight different possible results  (though there’s one ending that people seem to be loving more than the others).

-The Golden Globe promos with Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are delightfully nonsensical.

Sandra Bullock went on Ellen and talked about having a crush on Keanu Reeves during the filming of Speed and I’ve never related to her more.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth appear to be honeymooning with his whole family in tow.

Jennifer Lawrence says she once got so stoned with rappers at a party that she began yelling at a woman at the port-a-potty about pooping. That seems very on brand.

-What better way to close out this year than with video of Celine Dion rocking out at a Lady Gaga show?

Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Elisabeth Moss star in the trailer for Jordan Peele‘s upcoming horror film Us.
