Billie Eilish Moves On

Billie Eilish rolling stone

Billie Eilish talked to Rolling Stone about planning to move out of her parent’s house, how she only watches TV on her phone (“I can’t go to the bathroom without watching something on my phone. I can’t brush my teeth. I can’t wash my face”) and getting over a fame-related traumatic experience (“I went through some crazy shit, and it really affected me and made me not want to go near anyone ever”). She also brought her dog to the photoshoot.

-Meanwhile, her rumoured boyfriend is apologizing for old racist and homophobic social posts.

Anthony Mackie is getting some heat on Twitter for his comments about people shipping his character with Sebastian Stan‘s in Falcon & The Winter Solider. “So many things are twisted and convoluted. There’s so many things that people latch on to with their own devices to make themselves relevant and rational…It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool…You can’t do that anymore, because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalize themselves.” I agree with this thread that actors shouldn’t be required to speak on the writers’ queerbaiting — though having an answered prepared wouldn’t hurt. But I really agree with this thread about how queer audiences are desperate for representation because there’s so little of it in Hollywood, and it’s really not hard to just say “hey man, you do you.” Mark Hamill had it right when he was asked questions like this.

Katherine Heigl Is Done Being Shunned

-This is an interesting interview with Katherine Heigl, in which she talks about how her “difficult” label crushed her career. On one hand, she made some valid points about Knocked Up at the time and the world owes her an apology about the backlash (same with Megan Fox re: her comments about Michael Bay). On the other hand, rumours about her and her mother’s behaviour on set were legendary.  In any case, her 27 Dresses costar James Marsden has her back, saying in the article: “She has very strong convictions and strong opinions on certain things, and she doesn’t back down from letting you know if she feels like she’s been wronged in any way. I’ve always seen that as just strength of character.”

-Whoever is doing Mariah Carey‘s social strategy continues to crush it.

T.I. and Tiny are denying the rumours that surfaced on social media this week, alleging the couple drugged and assaulted women. They released a statement: “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously.”

-The two stars of Pen15 are both pregnant, which should make for an interesting new season.

Anne Hathaway has joined Jared Leto in a new Apple TV+ series about the spectacular rise and fall of WeWork. Let’s hope he doesn’t welcome her to the cast by sending her a dead rat.

-In today’s Actors on Actors interview, Amanda Seyfried tells Vanessa Kirby: “I wish I could redo ‘Les Miz’ completely, because the whole live singing aspect just — I still have nightmares about it”.

-This is a great tribute to Cicely Tyson, who passed away yesterday. Lenny Kravitz, who was her godson, also posted a lovely tribute.

-Vanity Fair has gotten wind of Jessica Mulroney’s interview the National Post from last week. Unlike most Canadians, they seem unaware of the columnist and her, um, reputation.

-This oral history of the Super Bowl episode of Friends is packed with juicy tidbits! Brooke Shields‘ then-boyfriend Andre Agassi yelled at her after her dinner scene with Matt Leblanc (“I see him come down, pull Brooke aside and eviscerate her because he’s crazy-jealous. She’s reduced to tears! I broke the show for awhile, and the girls took Brooke aside and loved her, took care of her and got her back on that stage. She did great because of the support of those three. He was a jackass”). Matthew Perry flirted over fax with Julia Roberts. (“She was giving him these questionnaires like, “Why should I go out with you?” And everyone in the writers room helped him explain to her why.”) Chris Isaak couldn’t really act (“Such a swell guy. But his scenes with Phoebe? It was like working with a salmon”). Jean-Claude Van Damme showed up hours late and was too aggressive in his kissing scenes (“Having completely blown up our shooting day, we had to scramble. Then he’s unprepared and arrogant!”)

Batwoman’s Ruby Rose Leaves Show

-On his podcast, Brian Austin Green confirmed his separation from Megan Fox, saying he noticed she began acting distant after she came back from shooting a film last Thanksgiving. “She said, ‘You know what, I realized while I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself and I liked myself better during that experience. And I think that’s something that might be worth trying for me.’ I was upset about it, but I can’t be upset at her, and I wasn’t upset at her because she didn’t ask to feel that way.” He also addressed the rumors that the actress is now dating Machine Gun Kelly, saying: “She met this guy Colson on set on this film she’s working on. Goes by Machine Gun Kelly — I’ve never met him but you know, Megan and I have talked about him and they’re friends at this point.” Meanwhile, Us Weekly is reporting that they’re more than friends.

-It looks like the infamous Snyder Cut is upon us. I have never really enjoyed a Zach Snyder movie so I sure the hell have no desire to watch a 3.5 hour one, but fanboys are gonna fanboy.

Harry Styles enjoys a pre-pandemic day at the beach with models in the “Watermelon Sugar” video, which he says is “dedicated to touching.” I do appreciate that there is at least a couple of different body types (and boys!) in the mix.
