-Meanwhile, the royal couple are set to do a sit-down interview with Oprah and “nothing is off-limits.”

Simone Ashley won the coveted role of Kate in season two of Bridgerton. I know nothing about this actress, but that’s the best character in the entire book series so good on her.

-Speaking of the Bridgerton cast, Rege-Jean Page is going to star in Paramount’s Dungeons & Dragons movie with Chris Pine.

Olivia Wilde made a social media post thanking Harry Styles for taking on a supporting role in a women-led movie, and people are not having it.

-Awful news for Nicki Minaj: her father has passed away following a hit-and-run.

-This is an interesting piece on how everyone in Hollywood wants immunity, and lots of A-listers are looking into what it would take to get it — but they are also terrified of potential public shaming if it ever came out that they jumped the vaccine line (as they should be).

-Meanwhile, here’s a look at how crisis PR isn’t really working for stars these days.

-Are Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox the 2021 version of Angelina and Billy Bob? He wears a necklace with a drop of her blood in it.

-Speaking of pulling an Angie, Kristen Wiig says her twin babies’ names are Luna and Shiloh.

-Speaking of Wiig, her new movie is incredibly weird and you definitely have to be in the right mindset for it (or high), but I will watch the bit where Jamie Dornan recreates a cheezy music video over and over and over. This is a very charming interview with him about it, in which he says he can sing “just as much as any douchey actor guy.”

David Boreanaz has broken his silence and offered public support to Charisma Carpenter.

Julie Bowen says her Modern Family TV son Nolan Gould gave her an ‘insane’ Happy Gilmore poster. “[Because of it] my kids think Happy Gilmore is a horror movie.”

Katherine Heigl Is Done Being Shunned

-This is an interesting interview with Katherine Heigl, in which she talks about how her “difficult” label crushed her career. On one hand, she made some valid points about Knocked Up at the time and the world owes her an apology about the backlash (same with Megan Fox re: her comments about Michael Bay). On the other hand, rumours about her and her mother’s behaviour on set were legendary.  In any case, her 27 Dresses costar James Marsden has her back, saying in the article: “She has very strong convictions and strong opinions on certain things, and she doesn’t back down from letting you know if she feels like she’s been wronged in any way. I’ve always seen that as just strength of character.”

Machine Gun Kelly is performing on SNL this weekend and Megan Fox joined him on his way to rehearsals — where she was spotted wearing what looks like an engagement ring.

-Whoever is doing Mariah Carey‘s social strategy continues to crush it.

T.I. and Tiny are denying the rumours that surfaced on social media this week, alleging the couple drugged and assaulted women. They released a statement: “Mr. and Mrs. Harris want to be on record and more importantly want the public to know they emphatically deny in the strongest way possible the egregiously appalling allegations being made against them by Sabrina Peterson. The Harrises have had difficulty with this woman for well over a decade. They are taking this matter very seriously.”

-The two stars of Pen15 are both pregnant, which should make for an interesting new season.

Anne Hathaway has joined Jared Leto in a new Apple TV+ series about the spectacular rise and fall of WeWork. Let’s hope he doesn’t welcome her to the cast by sending her a dead rat.

-In today’s Actors on Actors interview, Amanda Seyfried tells Vanessa Kirby: “I wish I could redo ‘Les Miz’ completely, because the whole live singing aspect just — I still have nightmares about it”.

-This is a great tribute to Cicely Tyson, who passed away yesterday. Lenny Kravitz, who was her godson, also posted a lovely tribute.

-Vanity Fair has gotten wind of Jessica Mulroney’s interview the National Post from last week. Unlike most Canadians, they seem unaware of the columnist and her, um, reputation.

-This oral history of the Super Bowl episode of Friends is packed with juicy tidbits! Brooke Shields‘ then-boyfriend Andre Agassi yelled at her after her dinner scene with Matt Leblanc (“I see him come down, pull Brooke aside and eviscerate her because he’s crazy-jealous. She’s reduced to tears! I broke the show for awhile, and the girls took Brooke aside and loved her, took care of her and got her back on that stage. She did great because of the support of those three. He was a jackass”). Matthew Perry flirted over fax with Julia Roberts. (“She was giving him these questionnaires like, “Why should I go out with you?” And everyone in the writers room helped him explain to her why.”) Chris Isaak couldn’t really act (“Such a swell guy. But his scenes with Phoebe? It was like working with a salmon”). Jean-Claude Van Damme showed up hours late and was too aggressive in his kissing scenes (“Having completely blown up our shooting day, we had to scramble. Then he’s unprepared and arrogant!”)

Zac Efron may have split from his waitress girlfriend.

-In happier couples news, Friends star Matthew Perry popped the question to his girlfriend of two years, Molly Hurwitz.

Joss Whedon has exited the HBO series The Nevers, citing exhaustion. I’d love if they found a woman to showrun the series about a group of Victorian women who develop strange abilities, but that’s probably expecting too much from Hollywood.

Jude Law says the scientist on the set of Contagion warned him a pandemic was inevitable. “The great scientists on set with us who had worked with Scott [Z. Burns] the writer and [director] Steven [Soderbergh] were very learned and experienced individuals who knew what to expect. And they all said to us that this was going to happen — and it was a case of when rather than if.”
