-In the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Reese Witherspoon recalls meeting Jennifer Aniston on the set of Friends (where they played sisters). “I was 23 years old and had just had a baby. I was nursing Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, ‘You have a baby?’ I was like, ‘I know, it’s weird.’ And I remember her being like, ‘Where are you going?’ And I was like, ‘I’m pumping!’…She was so sweet to me. I was really nervous, and she was like, ‘Oh, my gosh—don’t worry about it!’ I marveled at her ability to perform in front of a live audience like that with no nerves. They would change all the lines, and she was just so effortlessly affable, bubbly, and sunny. We’ve been friends ever since.”

-This Fiona Apple interview happened when she reached out because the writer (via a Hotmail account!) because the writer was one of the few who noticed that Variety had dubbed an interview with Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria. What follows is a fun, freewheeling conversation about the state of the music industry (“The whole music scene, which — not bullshit anymore. It’s the bull who ate that shit and then shit it out again, and then ate that shit and then shit it out again, and then ate that shit and then shit it out again, and then ate that shit and then shit it out again, and now it’s that bullshit”), what her life looks like these days (“I live here in my house with my friend Zelda and her dog, and we just hang out.

It was glorious.”).

-The CW didn’t renew their deal with Netflix, instead opting to shop their new shows to other streaming services (or keep them on their own). A lot of their shows survived of their Netflix popularity/revenue alone; I’m guessing this will be the last season they renew every show on their slate.

-CBS’ handling of Bull/Michael Weatherly still sucks.

I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns.
