Adele Gets Ready for SNL

-Here’s our first look at Adele on SNL. I’m both looking forward to this episode and dreading the conversation about it.

Jennifer Aniston posted a photo of her casting her election ballot early and she had a message for fans: “It’s not funny to vote for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

-In a podcast interview, Jennifer Lawrence says it took her a while to get over falling at the Oscars. “I can look back at it now fondly but for a very long time the fall thing was very sensitive. Anderson Cooper, I saw him on CNN three days later saying, ‘Well she obviously faked the fall,’ and it was so devastating because it was this horrific humiliation to me. I don’t know if I’ll ever have a chance to give a speech like that again, so it didn’t feel good for me not to have a speech.”

-She also said her husband doesn’t mind that she kicks him to the guest room when she has “slumber parties, like, once a week” with her friends. In a pandemic tho?

-This year has been rough, but the ladies of pop are determined to get us through it by releasing new music. First came Taylor, then Demi, and now Ariana Grande.  With just 10 days to go before the U.S. election, she’s offering us a vision of what life would be like if she were in charge in her new video for “Positions”.

Miley Cyrus is also getting in on the action, announcing a new album that’ll be released Nov 27.

Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith continue to be the best celebrity couple.

Matthew McConaughey talked to Howard Stern about how his mom repeatedly sold him out once he became famous. He’s incredibly forgiving.

-The funniest thing about Robert Downey Jr.‘s post supporting Chris Pratt is that he cropped Tom Holland out of the photo. They’re so close that they have … literally no photos together.

Sacha Baron Cohen appeared on GMA, along with Borat 2 costar Maria Bakalova, and talked about the scene with Rudy Giuliani. “If the president’s lawyer found what he did there appropriate behavior then heaven knows what he’s doing with other female journalists in hotel rooms. I just urge everyone to watch the movie. It is what it is. He did what he did.” He added that he was “quite concerned” for Bakalova during the scene because he was hiding nearby and monitoring the situation via text. “It’s my responsibility as a producer as well to ensure that the lead actor is looked after.”

Christine Baranski plays Scrooge to Dolly Parton‘s angel in the trailer for Netflix’s upcoming holiday musical Christmas on the Square.

-Speaking of Netflix holiday movies, the Dash & Lily trailer is super cute.

-So we’re still pretending that Paul GreengrassNews of the World, starring Tom Hanks, is coming out in theatres at Christmas, huh?

-Meanwhile, there’s lots of whispers about the studio behind James Bond shopping it to streaming sites and the numbers floating around are insane — like 200-600 million dollars insane.

Kaley Cuoco may be a murderer in the trailer for The Flight Attendant, coming to HBO Max and Crave next month.

Blake Lively Draws Louboutins Onto Her Feet

Blake Lively badly photoshopping a pair of shoes onto her feet is the content I needed today. She posted “@louboutinworld are you hiring? Barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience avail.”

-Oh goodie. Now Josh Brolin has weighed in on Chris Pratt, complaining about the “global hate hand job” everyone’s giving his costar. Why won’t they stop?

-Just in case you thought 2020 couldn’t get weirder, Daniel Kaluuya confirmed his live-action Barney movie is really happening and it will be darker than the OG TV show. “Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won’t you say you love me too?’ That’s one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn’t true?”

Matthew McConaughey says he was sexually abused as a teenager in his new memoir Greenlights, writing “I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15. I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex. Today, I am merely certain that I hope that’s not the case.” He also mentions an incident when he was “molested by a man when I was 18 while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.” Still, he remained an optimist. “I’ve never felt like a victim. I have a lot of proof that the world is conspiring to make me happy.”

Justin Bieber says he’s not slowing down his support of Black Lives Matter. “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American. [W]hat I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine [a] light on racism.”

Dominic West‘s wife has gone to Ireland on a “work trip.” Uh huh.

Miranda Lambert‘s new music video has a surprising costar: her husband’s abs.

-I have no interest in ever watching another movie based on a video game again, but Tom Holland is sure working that henley in the first photo from Uncharted.

Lake Bell and Scott Campbell have called it quits after 7 years of marriage.

-The 100 showrunner is now blaming his much-maligned final season on the network, saying the head of the CW told him to make the show darker. Did he also tell him to kill off beloved characters in throwaway scenes that made zero sense?

Kristen Bell will star in and exec produce in Netflix’s The Woman in the House, a thriller series about a woman nursing a broken heart who possibly witnesses her neighbor murder someone.

Noah Cyrus wore a sheer bodysuit (ala Britney in the “Toxic” video) to the CMTs. That went over about as well as you’d expect.

-The cover of Cicely Tyson’s memoir is stunning. It’s a portrait taken by Lord Snowden.

-CBS’ and Trump have been in a pissing contest all day that includes a lot of early clip releases from his 60 Minutes interview that’s airing Sunday.

-The more we hear about the Synder cut, the more it’s clear that this thing never actually existed.

-Wait, so Netflix has reportedly renewed Steve Carell’s Space Force but keeps cancelling shows people actually like? WTF?

-The trailer for the Netflix film The Prom has dropped, starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and James Corden. How many times am I going to get sucked into watching a Ryan Murphy joint and instantly regret it? At least one more, apparently.

Matthew McConaughey’s a Family Man for People

Matthew-McConaughey memoir

Matthew McConaughey is promoting his new memoir, but the interviews he’s giving aren’t making me want to rush out and buy it. On parenthood, he tells People “The only thing I ever knew I wanted to be was a father. And it’s remained the pinnacle for me. Being a dad was always my only dream. I can’t think of anything being more important” and says of his marriage to Camila Alves: “I can tell you this: I’m happy and confident to say our kids do not question the love we have in our family”. Look man, ya gotta give us something more, especially because Mariah Carey just delivered such juiciness.

-I see we’re at that tedious point of the gossip cycle where every recent interview with Lily James is being combed over for clues to her relationship with Dominic West. Goodie.

-Meanwhile, West’s camp is trying to spin it that he’s just a big teddy bear who likes to get touchy-feely with his friends. Mmmhmmm.

Bella Hadid is dating Jack Nicholson’s grandson and everyone’s saying he looks like John Mayer, but I’m seeing Billie Joe Armstrong?

-Despite the TV industry being awash in “un-renewals” for shows we actually want to come back, they keep reviving shows no one wants. Case in point: Dexter is coming back, with Michael C. Hall reprising the main role.

-Also, as soon as the news broke, a writer on the original series tweeted: “That time I was on a show with a male lead and I’d recommended 2 women directors for upcoming episodes and the showrunner never responded so I mentioned it again and he literally screamed at me, ‘A WOMAN WILL NEVER DIRECT THIS SHOW, OKAY?'”

-Speaking of reboots, one of the stars of the new Charmed show, Sarah Jeffery, criticized Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan of the original series for publicly disparaging the new version. Combs then responded and it’s, um, not great.  Meanwhile, Jeffery says Charmed OG Shannen Doherty has been nothing but kind.

-A wave of stars quit the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen earlier this year after reckoning with racism, pay disparity, and a toxic work culture. Now there’s a trailer featuring a lot of new faces.

-Meanwhile, former Test Kitchen star Sohla El-Waylly was interviewed by E. Alex Jung and the result is a scorcher of a profile.  “The fact is Brad [Leone]’s show did do very well. For some reason, people like watching a big dumb white guy. But why? What does that say about the audience? Why do you want to watch this incompetent white man when we have one in the fucking Oval Office?”

-This is a great profile on Pedro Pascal, who says to play the villain in Wonder Woman 1984 he turned his script into a pop-art scrapbook. One page features Max surrounded by text bubbles into which he wrote over and over again, ‘You are a f*cking piece of shit’.

-Here’s the first trailer for This Is Us’ two-hour season premiere, which airs Oct 27.

Cardi B accidentally shared a topless photo on Instagram, and doesn’t seem to bothered by it: “It is what it is. S–t happens. F–k it, it’s not even the first time. I mean, I used to f—ing be a stripper so whatever. Ay, Dios mío.”

-Meanwhile, there’s talk that Cardi and Nicki Minaj are putting their beef behind them and coming together for a collab. This is the miracle 2020 needs!

-Also something we need: Ariana Grande‘s next album, which she says is coming this month.

James Van Der Beek took to Instagram to explain why he packed up his family and moved to Texas: “In the last ten months, we’ve had two late-term pregnancy losses, each of which put @vanderkimberly in the hospital, we spent Christmas break thinking she had a tumor (the doctor was wrong, thank god), a business colleague I hired hijacked the project and stabbed me in the back, I was prematurely booted off a reality dancing show I was favored to win in front of the whole world, and my mom died.” Yeah, that’ll do it.

Cate Blanchett interviewed her idol, photographer Gregory Crewdson, about his latest exhibit, which blends the nostalgia of an Edward Hopper painting with some of America’s thorniest issues.

Jason Momoa is back in Toronto shooting his Apple show and I love that sightings of him are all over social.

Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha star in the new trailer for Amazon’s Christmas romance Sylvie’s Love. This was a huge hit at Sundance so I’m very happy it’ll be streaming instead of at theatres.

-The trailer for Hillbilly Elegy starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close dropped today, and Twitter was quick to eviscerate it, calling it “conservative poverty porn” and comparing it to indie film spoofs.
