Carey Mulligan’s American Style

carey mulligan instyle cover

Carey Mulligan covers the June issue of InStyle and mentioned something I’d never really considered before: British people don’t typically wear baseball caps. “I used to feel self-conscious about wearing one because I’m not American, but it’s a great way to navigate life without makeup.”

-I unfollowed a lot of (mostly white) celebrities on Instagram this weekend. If they hadn’t said a peep about what’s going on in the world or didn’t choose to go dark to cede the spotlight to those more qualified to speak on it and instead used their huge reach to show off pics from their pool or some shit, then bye-bye. I was, however, impressed by how many were using their platform to amplify black voices and spread the word about donations/resources, including some I found entirely unexpected like Grant Gustin, Blake Lively (who had a plantation wedding), Chris WoodTimothée Chalamet, and John Cusack.

-Insecure actor Kendrick Sampson was protesting peacefully when police pointed a gun directly at him before hitting him with rubber bullets (seven times) and with a baton.

-I don’t watch 9-1-1 but I’m guessing it’s going to be tense on set when filming resumes. Ryan Guzman is facing major backlash after admitting that he uses racial slurs. Meanwhile, Oliver Stark (whose character many fans ship with Guzman’s character) has been using his social media to amplify black voices all this past week and does not seem impressed by his costar.

-I love how quickly K-pop stan Twitter worked together to crash an app encouraging Dallas residents to rat out protestors.

-I didn’t know that Josh Lucas and his ex-wife Jessica Ciencin Henriquez had reconciled, but apparently they had because she just accused him of cheating on her during the pandemic.

-Remember when Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch gave an interview in Playboy in September where he said swinging saved his marriage? Yeah, she’s left him.

Camila Cabello wrote about her struggles with OCD and anxiety.

-If you haven’t read Forbes’ article from Friday entitled “Inside Kylie Jenner‘s Web of Lies — And Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire” it’s worth your time. It’s hilarious that her response was “i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have”, seeing as the whole point of the article is how her family is so fixated on how much money they have that they’ve been going to great lengths to lie about it for years.

-Insecure is having one of the best seasons on TV right now.

-Killing Eve just wrapped up one of the worst. Pajiba just called it “the new Dexter.” Ouch.

Cush Jumbo, who plays Lucca Quinn on The Good Fight, is leaving show. She said in a statement “Due to the pandemic forcing us to shut down early we weren’t able to wrap up Lucca’s story fully and so I hope if schedules allow I can return next season to do that.”

-I’m really liking how creative magazines are getting when it comes to photo shoots with their socially distanced subjects. Robert Pattinson took his own pics for GQ, as did Naomi Campbell for Essence, a Vanity Fair photographer shot Janelle Monae through a Zoom conference call, and now Vanity Fair used a drone to shoot Catherine O’Hara lounging in her yard.

Jennifer Lawrence joined Amy Schumer for the latest episode of her quarantine cooking show, and said she considers white wine “mainly for sluts.” ‘Kay.

Lana Del Rey, what are you talking about?!? “There has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me” is not a sentence a white girl has any business writing. And to throw Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé under the bus while she’s at it? Good lord.

John Krasinski‘s viral series Some Good News has been sold to CBS All Access following a massive bidding war— which doesn’t really feel like good news. It was a nice thing he was doing during quarantine but selling it feels…kinda gross? He’s not even going to be the host so what exactly did he sell, the concept of feel-good segments?

-Chef Kristin O’Connor was spotted at Bradley Cooper‘s place, sparking romance rumours.

-I don’t think I’ll be able to listen to Marc Maron’s latest podcast episode, in which he pays tribute to his partner Lynn Shelton. Just reading about it is making me teary.

Jude Law is expecting baby No. 6. The weirdest thing about this story is the photos of them just walking around London with no masks or distancing.

-TIFF’s Stay at Home Cinema series just kicked things up a notch with some great gets. Tonight, they’re doing a live chat on Facebook/Youtube with Rian Johnson to discuss Looper before a live-watch on Crave, and on Wednesday they’re doing one with Kate Winslet on Sense and Sensibility.

-It looks like there’s a face in the background of Jennifer Lopez’s photo and now I can’t unsee it.

-Riverdale actor Skeet Ulrich says the reason he’s leaving the hit series is because he “got bored creatively.” I mean, you can say a lot about that show, but “boring” really isn’t it.

-This is an interesting piece about Alison Roman, Bon Appetit, and the whiteness of the food media.

Peter Dinklage and Jason Momoa are teaming up for a vampire-themed buddy comedy, which sounds fantastic.

We all are. So, how best to spend my remaining time on this planet?”

-Media-shy Cameron Diaz appeared on Who What Wear CEO Katherine Power‘s Instagram Live yesterday and talked about motherhood and being married to Benji Madden. “I love being a mother. It’s the best, best, best part of my life. I’m so grateful and so happy and it’s the best thing ever and I’m so lucky to do it with Benj and we’re having the best time. I’m thrilled. I can’t believe it.”
