Mandy Moore

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan Reunite for Little Women

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan EW cover

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan are on the cover of EW’s November issue and every photo in this spread is so beautiful that I want it tattooed to the inside of my eyelids.

-There’s also a good new Vulture feature on Chalamet, in which he talks about being an Oscar-nominated leading man, a social-media phenomenon, and, most surprisingly, a fashion icon.

-I go away for a few days and Jennifer Aniston joins Instagram? Rude.

-Speaking of news I missed, the idea of Mandy Moore reliving her ’90s popstar days in a new ABC series is *chef’s kiss*

-I loved her on Jane the Virgin but seriously, how many times is Gina Rodriguez going to screw up with the Black community? (Here’s the now-deleted video.) And at what point are celebrities going to realize that saying “I’m sorry if I offended you” doesn’t actually qualify as an apology?!

-Ah crap. Nicole Cliffe (who is usually pretty reliable) is tweeting about how she’s heard lots of not great stories about Jeff Goldblum‘s interactions with women. Universe, can we not have *one* unproblematic fave?!?

-Speaking of men who do not have a good reputation, FX has fired The Mayans showrunner Kurt Sutter for being an “abrasive dick“. According to THR, multiple complaints were made about his behavior on the set of the series.

Jonah Hill passed on role in The Batman opposite Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, so they just cast Paul Dano as The Riddler (which seems like an upgrade?).

Robert Pattinson can’t stop talking about his masturbation scene in The Lighthouse. I’ll allow it.

-This is an incredibly good interview with Ronan Farrow, in which he talks about NBC’s response to his book, how his sister Dylan serves as his conscience, and his engagement to Jon Lovett

Carrie Preston shared the wrap gift she once got from Julia Roberts and it’s kind of lovely.

Ryan Reynolds revealed that he and Blake Lively had another girl in a tweet encouraging Canadians to vote.

-As if  news of a Clueless reboot wasn’t upsetting enough, the description of it is insufferable.

-This is a great story about how a tweet got Ellen Page’s documentary into TIFF with just a month to spare.

-I’m really surprised that Taylor Swift hadn’t done a Tiny Desk Concert before now.

-When it comes to Fall TV’s broadcast debuts, Prodigal Son, Stumptown and The Unicorn are getting solid ratings, but it doesn’t look good for the other new shows, so I hope you haven’t been getting attached to Evil, Emergence, All Rise, Bluff City Law, Almost Family, Perfect Harmony or Sunnyside.

-I watched the Breaking Bad movie on a plane and cried. Like, actual tears. This deep-dive with Vince Gilligan into the making of it is worth your time.

Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s f-bomby Star Wars rant is kind of delightful (and surprisingly educational).

-Critics have seen the first six episodes of HBO’s The Watchmen — premiering Sunday from Damon Lindelof of Lost and The Leftovers — and the reviews are glowing.

-Speaking of new shows, Paul Rudd‘s Netflix series Living With Yourself is getting good but not great reviews.

-Here’s a new trailer for A Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson and hitting Netflix on Dec. 6.

Emmys Red Carpet: Best and Worst Dressed

 

Red and pink dresses, pale blue gowns and side boob were the biggest fashion trends at the 2019 Emmy Awards red carpet. Here are my picks for the best and worst dressed of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Zendaya SLAYED the red carpet. She was one of the last stars to arrive and girl shut it down with this Poison Ivy-inspired corseted Vera Wang. She could, as the kids say, step on my neck.

 

Russian Doll’s Natasha Lyonne was dripping in gold Gucci. Impeccable styling, impeccable posing, impeccable attitude.

 

I feel like I’ve seen a version of Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s Monique Lhuillier multiple times before but I don’t care. I still love her in it. If she isn’t going to wear the jumpsuit, this is a close second.

 

Regina King jumped on the baby blue bandwagon but added some extra flair with the straps on her Jason Wu dress.

 

GLOW star Betty Gilpin glowed in this sparkly Jason Wu dress paired with simple hair. I wish she’d had a bold lip but otherwise this is stellar.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 EMMYS:

Look, I worship at the alter of Gwendoline Christie and I fully admit that she’s my personal Jesus. But that doesn’t mean I want her to dress like it.

 

The ladies of Game of Thrones should be taking a victory lap, as this is the last season the show is qualified for an Emmy. But they were uniformly underwhelming, especially Sophie Turner. She blended into her pale in Louis Vuitton — a dress that somehow managed to look both wrinkled and stiff.

 

There was a lot of weird bows or folds over boobs on this red carpet. There was also a lot of pale blue. Jameela Jamil in Monique Lhullier was my least fave in both these trends. It looked off-centered and awkward (though she gets points for admitting she did her own makeup).

 

It takes talent for a dress to look both too sheer and too heavy, but Amy Adams‘ dowdy Fendi managed to do just that.

 

Red and pink colour blocked dresses were a huge theme on the red carpet, worn by Marisa Tomei, Taraji P. Henson, Susan Kelechi Watson, and more. For my money (and I know I’m in the minority here), Mandy Moore was the most awkward in a droopy Brandon Maxwell dress that looked like it was always on the verge of falling off. The vampy hair and makeup were on point, though.

 

 

 

Victoria Beckham Opens Up About Her Childhood

Victoria Beckham glamour uk

-In her Glamour UK cover story, Victoria Beckham recalls being “mentally and physically” bullied as a child. “I was never the popular girl at school and I never found anything easy and I was told ‘No’ constantly…I was bullied a lot at school, mentally and physically, and the fact that I can talk to Harper about that and how girls should be kind to girls – really I use my own experiences and share that.”

-Out magazine put Dan Levy on the cover of their fashion issue and this is a v. good choice.

Lady Gaga just dropped a new makeup line on Amazon, and her eyeliner is already a number one best-seller.

Kanye West confirmed that his new album, Jesus Is King, will drop next week.

-Meanwhile, Brad Pitt praised Kanye’s Sunday Service: “I think he was doing something really special there. It’s a pure celebration of life and people. It’s really delightful. It really is.”

Mandy Moore just dropped the music video for her first new song in over a decade.

-Huh. One of the biggest TIFF deals was for Hugh Jackman’s Bad Education, which HBO bought. I thought it was just ok (though Allison Janney was predictably fabulous).

-Canadian Lilly Singh debuted her late night talk show last night — and she did great! Watch clips here.

-That fired SNL comedian might have just offered the worst non-apology in the history of Hollywood, which is really saying something.

-Much like his ex Jennifer AnistonJustin Theroux has gotten himself a new Apple+ show.

-NBC’s upcoming streaming service is called Peacock and it will include a Saved By The Bell reboot with original stars Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez reprising their roles, and a Battlestar Galactica revival, with a new take from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. Parks and Rec will also move from Netflix to this new streaming service.

-Speaking of the streaming wars, Big Bang Theory has set a record-setting, eye-popping multi-BILLION-dollar streaming deal with HBO Max.

-Even Tinder is launching a streaming service? We’ve officially entered TOO MUCH TV land.

Jake Gyllenhaal shared some delightful Spider-Man bloopers on his IG.

Scaachi‘s excellent Buzzfeed profile of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca is what everyone is talking about today. It’s a roller coaster ride of an article that started being about Duca’s new book and her Twitter fame, and ended up being about how her entire NYU summer class filing a formal complaint against her. This line took my breath away: “Congratulations, you thrillingly, thrillingly adept journalist, you have discovered that Lauren Duca is not perfect. Put it in the headline, baby.”

-The new Last Christmas trailer does nothing to allay fears that Henry Golding is playing a ghost or angel.
