Harry Styles Goes Shirtless on Rolling Stone

-I checked to see how old Harry Styles is before deciding if I was allowed to drool a little over his Rolling Stone cover — and it turns out his 25. Totally fine. It took me awhile but I get it now.

Katie Holmes has reportedly pulled the plug on her relationship with Jamie Foxx, with the news coming days after he was spotted holding hands with another woman. Again.

Elton John loaned his private jet to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry so they could enjoy some time at his private estate, and was not amused when the British press complained that the were adding to the carbon footprint by not flying commercial. The Brits are definitely focusing on the wrong royal right now.

-The casting for HBO/BBC’s fantasy drama adaptation of His Dark Materials continues to awe. Andrew Scott (aka Fleabag’s hot priest) just came onboard.

Kate Hudson doing sponcon for Weight Watchers is weird but at least she seems to be having fun with it. Who cooks in a trench coat tho?

-Arrow may be wrapping in January, but Stephen Amell already has his next gig lined up: he’ll headline an 8-episode wrestling drama at Starz. This seems like a good career move. Transition into a bit more prestige-y stuff, while sticking with TV and the type of content his fanbase will follow him for.

-Ugh, these clips from Anderson Cooper‘s interview with Stephen Colbert  on the tragic death of his father and brothers in a plane crash made me tear up.

-The Seth Rogen-produced Good Boys, a movie about the R-rated misadventures of 3 preteen boys, had the year’s largest opening total for an original comedy.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo tweeting sweet things at each other as they wrap TATBILB filming is killing me.

-This is a good look at how this age of media corporation mega-mergers spells trouble. People don’t seem as concerned about Disney taking over Hollywood as maybe they should be.

-I was looking forward to CW’s debut of I Ship It tonight (about a woman who impulsively quits her job to become an assistant on the show she’s been writing fanfiction about) but the reviews are just ok.

-Man, last night’s episode of Succession should have included a trigger warning for anyone who’s ever worked in digital media. (One of the show’s writers/producers used to work for The Onion, which is probably why they nailed it.) The headlines running in the background for the fake Gawker/Buzzfeed site were perfect.

-Marvel Comics’ attempts to appear apolitical don’t seem to be working anymore.

-I really enjoyed this interview with Michelle Williams on preparing for Fosse/Verdon and taking a break from working.

-The trailer for Kristen Stewart’s “new” movie (which she filmed in 2017) couldn’t have come at a worse time for her.

Reese Witherspoon is taking on Marie Kondo with a new Netflix show about tidying up.

-Today was a *crazy* day for TV trailers and news. Steven Soderbergh‘s next movie about older ladies going on a trip (starring Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, and Dianne Wiest) has landed an the upcoming streaming service HBO Max. Amazon dropped its trailer (featuring Sterling K. Brown) and release date (Dec 6) for season 3 of Marvelous Mrs Maisel. We got our first trailer for Ryan Murphy‘s Upcoming Netflix show The Politician, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Platt. But the buzziest drop (and maybe not in a good way) was Apple’s first real trailer for The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. For a company with a reputation for their marketing genius, they are not handling these trailers well. With this cast I was expecting a comedy, not what looks like a dour mix of Studio 60 and The Newsroom. And was Witherspoon really cast as the young ingenue?!

Meghan Markle revealed never-before-seen pregnancy pics on Instagram for the launch of her new workwear clothing collection, available at British retailers in the fall.

Celine Dion does not appreciate reports that her close friend Pepe has too much influence over her.

Lana Del Rey just announced she’s dropping a new album next month (with Jack Antonoff) and I really need it. Also, apparently it’s ok if you’ve fallen behind (like me). The episode explains enough that you can just jump back in.

Hannah and Tyler haven’t had time to get that drink yet. I don’t really know what any of that means, but my Twitter TL seems *super* psyched about it.

Angelina Jolie‘s kids are digging the fact that she’s going to be in the Marvel universe.

-I haven’t gotten around to reading this summer’s buzzy book Where the Crawdads Sing (I know, I know) but this Slate article on its dark history is wild.

Brie Larson was spotted looking cozy with Maria Bello‘s ex.

-Succession is coming back to HBO soon and honestly I can’t wait.

Ellen Page is bringing a documentary to TIFF called There’s Something In the Water that draws attention to the Indigenous and African Nova Scotian women fighting to protect their communities. She’s a good egg.

-I have no desire to see Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood, but goodness has it led to some really well-written reviews. I especially like this one and this one.

-On the other end of the movie review spectrum, THR is (rightly) getting mocked for running a weirdly horny review of the new Dora the Explore movie. Maybe “throbbing” shouldn’t be used when talking about a film aimed a kids?

-This oral history of Orange Is The New Black includes 23 people and is very, very good.

Lil Nas X, a gay black man, just made Billboard history and this is why it matters.

-I don’t watch CBS’s Big Brother, but this sounds like a mess.

Armie Hammer went viral for all the wrong reasons over the weekend. Gross.

-Amazon boss Jennifer Salke wants Phoebe Waller-Bridge to reconsider ending Fleabag. I loved loved loved the last season but please god no.

-Speaking of Amazon, they’re developing a new show with Blake Lively.  “It’s set in New York, there’s a fashion component.” They know Gossip Girl is already being rebooted, right?

The anti-aging tech they’re doing on Will Smith for the Gemini Man trailers continue to freak me the eff out.
