Maggie Gyllenhaal

TV Drama Actresses Cover THR


-The Hollywood Reporter’s actresses roundtable features Angela Bassett, Claire Foy, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Elisabeth Moss, Thandie Newton and Sandra Oh, and it’s well worth a read.  They talk about pay parity, sex scenes and deciding when to weigh in on decision making on sets.

-This is exactly what I wanted to hear about Ocean’s 8.

-Jesus, how is The Bachelorette still able to survive? A season 2 producer arranged for a masseuse to come to Meredith Phillips‘ room during production in L.A., and that masseuse drugged and assaulted Meredith, she says.

-Anyone else get the feeling that David Cross is… a lot? During his interview with Colbert, he got so offended that he walked off the set. I mean, I get that it was a bit but I find him exhausting.

Sarah Silverman was interviewed by GQ and was pretty damn forgiving about controversial comedians in her circle. She spoke about Al Franken (“I understand that I may have cognitive distortion, because I love him so much. But all I can say is, and he may not be excited about this, but he has no sexuality. I believe in my heart of heart of hearts he never copped a feel”), Louie CK (“He’s my brother, so it’s hard. I may not have a very clear perspective on it, but I’m trying to…I don’t have some definitive sound bite or nutshell of how I feel about it, even to myself. But I’m also okay with that”), Aziz  Ansari (“I was just like, ‘Gross, I don’t wanna know that about Aziz!’ Hopefully he’s dealing with things, looking inward, and will blossom from it”) and Roseanne (“I had the gall to get high one night and watch episodes one and two of Roseanne. And I thought it was lovely.”)

-Seeing as her own sister accused Louis CK of masturbating in front of her 20 times, I’m surprised she’s this understanding.

-You know what, I really like Ariana Grande. Like, a lot.

-Interesting look at what TV critics are picking as their fave new pilots in the upcoming season.

Damon Lindelof wrote an emotional letter to fans about his vision for The Watchmen.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Carey Mulligan‘s marriage falls apart in Paul Dano‘s directorial debut, Wildfire. This is a really, really well done trailer.

Angelina Jolie Says Her Family Is No Longer in “Lockdown”


Angelina Jolie is selling her new movie hard (probably even harder now that the reviews following its TIFF premiere have been decidedly mixed). In a new People cover story, she spoke about the “difficult” year she’s had and revealed that she’s “a little bit stronger,” and that her family is now out of “lockdown.”

-16-year-old Maddox was also interviewed. I guess that’s what happens when you make your kid an exec producer of your movie.

Rebel Wilson has been awarded record-breaking $3.6 million in that defamation suit. She says she plans to “give the money away.”

-THR did a deep-dive into This Is Us, which returns Sept 26. The article is great, but even greater is this photo.

Harrison Ford is interviewed in the latest issue of GQ, and this part where he explains how he punched Ryan Gosling must be read.

Demi Lovato may possibly be dating a girl. Here for it.

Amber Tamblyn continues to drag James Woods, this time by penning an open letter to him in Teen Vogue. God, I love her.

-During a rapid-fire segment of an interview, Kate Hudson said the ‘laziest’ thing she’s ever done is have a C-section, so of course the torches came out on social media.

Maggie Gyllenhaal doesn’t know anything about the scarf Taylor Swift says she left at her house and she wants y’all to stop asking about it.

-Millennial pink is still going strong, huh? Rihanna filled the Park Avenue Armory with pink sand dunes for her latest Fenty collection.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to inch closer to an engagement. He’s reportedly introduced her to the Queen.

-Out of all the shows that were competing in EW’s fall TV cover battle, I didn’t think Riverdale would be the one to come out on top. What do I know?  Meanwhile, here’s the trailer for season 2.

Diane Kruger just took the crown for the worst-dressed at TIFF (and this is coming from someone who’s going to tonight’s TIFF activities in her fat jeans…)

Carey Mulligan showed up at TIFF looking very not-pregnant, so she must have had her second kid recently.

Idris Elba is so over all those questions about possibly playing Bond. (“Can we not? Because it feels like I’m campaigning, and I’m not. At first it was harmless — oh, I know, wouldn’t it be great? — and now it’s started off racial debates. I’m probably the most famous Bond actor in the world, and I’ve not even played the role. Enough is enough. I can’t talk about it any more.”)

Tyrese is publicly feuding with The Rock via Instagram comments. This will not end well for him.

Josh Brolin, Miles Teller and Taylor Kitsch play firefighters in the trailer for Only the Brave.

Chris Pratt Takes Over EW, GQ, Our Dreams

chris pratt EW

-Remember last year’s Summer Must List issue of EW, which featured Jessica Alba climbing out of a pool? This year we get Chris Pratt. #upgrade

-EW also posted an Instagram video of Pratt getting wet ‘n wild.

Pratt also covers the new issue of GQ, in which he talks about getting in trouble at NBC for always showing his junk.

-It’s a great day for hot dudes on magazine covers. Harry Potter’s Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) just posed for Attitude in his underwear and now the entire internet needs therapy.

J.K. Rowling was especially scandalized.

Lewis also posted a photo with Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke, who he’s costarring with in the adaptation of Jojo Moyes’s novel Me Before You, which I *hated*. But now I might have to reconsider this movie…

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were photographed holding hands again, restoring the universe’s faith in love.

-The weirdest thing about the Mad Men finale is that there was debate afterwards about whether or not Don created the Coke ad. Matthew Weiner has definitively answered that.

Vin Diesel keeps posting karaoke tributes to Paul Walker and they are getting increasingly weird. The latest is Tove Lo’s “Habits” (which I love) but hearing him try to inject emotion into the “I pick up daddies at the playground” line is unintentionally hilarious.

-Did you watch David Letterman‘s final show last night? It was very low key, which was perfectly him. Here’s video of his signoff and the Foo Fighters’ performance.

Bill Murray had a very, very good time after showing up on Letterman’s last show.

-I don’t even watch Supernatural (except for the occasional time that my sister-in-law tells me Felicia Day will be on it), but the fact that the entire cast joined in on this parody recap video set to “Shake It Off” is awesome.

-The Supergirl trailer has garnered more than 10 million views in just a week. Don’t screw this up, CBS!

Rebel Wilson is 35, not 29 like she’s been claiming in interviews. How did she even expect to get away with that? Who does she think she is, Catherine Zeta Jones?

-Speaking of ageism in Hollywood, Maggie Gyllenhaal revealed that she lost out on a role because at 37, she was deemed “too old” to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man.

-Now we know why Mindy Kaling has been talking so much about her relationship with BJ Novak lately: they’re writing a book about it.

-Meanwhile, I spent the first half of this Cannes video of Kaling with her Inside Out costars thinking Amy Poehler was Megan Mullally. True story.

-Uh oh. There are more rumours of Johnny Depp abandoning filming of the latest Pirates movie.

Taylor Swift‘s “not sexy” Maxim cover has horrified male readers. Horrified!

Batkid is going to give you feelings again with this new trailer. No, YOU’RE crying!
