Jennifer Aniston Hints At Return to TV

Jennifer Aniston is starting to lay the groundwork for her inevitable return to TV. (And she’s not just talking about those terrible airline ads.)  I’m frankly surprised it took her this long.

-Self-professed foodie Aziz Ansari dramatically read bad Yelp reviews on the Tonight Show last night.

Kristen Stewart never graduated college but she has coauthored a research paper on artificial intelligence because Hollywood!

Uma Thurman’s custody battle continues to be nasty. Now her ex is denying an alleged prostitute addiction.

Cuba Gooding Jr. filed for divorce from wife Sara Kapfer after more than 20 years of marriage.

-I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Will & Grace seems painfully out of date now. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle that in the revival.

-I assumed that this story about Matthew McConaughey saying he was balding in the ’90s until he found a miracle cure was fake news but … I don’t think it is?

-The new trailer for NBC’s Powerless looks pretty great. As someone who’s starting to OD on superhero stuff, a show about the schlubs who have to clean up after the heroes’ battles seems like a fun twist.

Melanie Lynskey is tired of everyone in the new I Don’t Feel at Home in This World trailer.


Beyonce Interviews Solange


Beyonce will no longer be interviewed (apparently), but she interviews her sister Solange in the new issue of Interview and it’s everything you could ever hope for. An actual question: “What are some misconceptions about being a strong woman?”

-Fences mended? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were spotted at Jay Z and Beyoncé’s house.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released their first joint statement since she filed for divorce in September, saying “The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.” Huh?

Johnny Depp is reportedly continuing to drag his feet on paying his divorce settlement.

-In Madonna‘s new Harper’s Bazaar cover story, she talks about the nightmare of the Trump presidency and reveals that she calls rosé “summer water” (hey, I did it first!).

-TMZ reported that Jamie Foxx was violently attacked at an LA restaurant and he responded by pretending he was … but he wasn’t? Cool story, bro.

Tom Hiddleston has apologized for that really terrible acceptance speech.

-The Amal Clooney pregnancy rumours are picking up steam.

-This is a great read on Sterling K Brown’s incredible year.

-I really like this take on how The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend renewal offers a preview of where TV might be going. It’s the lowest-rated show ever to be renewed by a major broadcast network, but its deals with CBS and Netflix (as well as its critical acclaim) give it wiggle room.

-So, there’s an actual chance that Deadpool could get a Best Picture Oscar nom. For real.

Matthew McConaughey and Bryce Dallas Howard star in the red band Gold trailer.

Tina Fey Opens Up to David Letterman for THR


Tina Fey was interviewed by David Letterman for the latest issue of THR and it’s great. She talks about her fear of artists becoming Leni Riefenstahl, offers her take on Donald Trump getting into a Twitter war with Alec Baldwin (“You think you’re good at being a jerk on Twitter? You will now face the grandmaster of being a jerk on Twitter”), and reveals she’s in a daily group chat with Maya Rudolph, Emily Spivey, Paula Pell, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, and Rachel Dratch.

-I still fall in the ‘what is a Bella Hadid?’ camp, but this is a pretty boss cover.

-British Vogue says brands “flatly refused” to provide clothes for Ashley Graham‘s cover shoot.

-Speaking of cover stories, Ruth Negga looks fantastic on January’s Vogue. I’ve loved her since Misfits; so glad she’s blowing up now.

-Forbes identified the 10 most overpaid actors of 2016, and Johnny Depp topped the list for the second year in a row. Also, it *tickles* me that Leonardo DiCaprio landed at #8.

-This is an interesting take on why the Casey Affleck sexual-harassment allegations just won’t stick.

Russell Crowe won’t be charged over that bizarre confrontation with Azealia Banks.

Katie Holmes shut down Dawsons Creek’s reunion chances. Um, because she has so much other stuff going on?!

John Legend and Chrissy Teigen are really good at charades. And life.

-Jesus cripes. A new “right-to-live” lawsuit on behalf of Sofia Vergara‘s fertilized eggs (“Emma” and “Isabella” ) has been filed in Louisiana by ex-husband Nick Loeb. How can this possibly be a thing?!

Reese Witherspoon is confused by Westworld.

Ryan Murphy says he now regrets that he directed the People v. O.J.’s Marcia Clark episode instead of hiring a woman to do it. I have my issues with him, but it’s good of him to admit this.

-I really liked this piece on how memorizing the Hamilton soundtrack before you see it can actually improve your enjoyment (which leads into a discussion about spoilers in general).

-Ellen DeGeneres bet Natalie Portman $1,000 that’s she’s having a girl.

-I knew (KNEW!) there’d be a backlash against the pure joy of La La Land because people are predictable monsters. But I didn’t think I’d first see it on Jezebel.

-Random: Minka Kelly is reportedly dating HIMYM’s Josh Radnor. On the plus side, she’s not dating Sean Penn.

-The new trailer for 50 Shades Darker is as ridiculous as you’d expect.
