Idris Elba’s Sexiness Confirmed

Idris Elba Is PEOPLE s Sexiest Man Alive 2018

Idris Elba has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. I was bracing for Bradley Cooper so this is a pleasant surprise — and a nice recovery from last year’s Blake Shelton disaster.

-Celebs got into the voting spirit today — most notably Beyonce is repping for Beto and Taylor Swift made a rare Instagram appearance urging people to the polls.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s custody court date has been set for Dec 4, so watch for them to spend the next month subtly shading each other in the press.

Zayn Malik says he left One Direction without any lifelong friendships: “I ain’t spoke to any of them for a long time, to be honest with you. That’s just the way it is. There’s things that happen and things that were said after I left… Snide things. Small things that I would never have expected.”

John Stamos needs to learn that not all stories should be told out loud.

Meghan Markle‘s family drama reportedly helped bring her even closer to Prince Charles, so at least something good came out of that mess.

-I really enjoyed this piece on Dlisted’s Michael K and the diluting of celebrity gossip sites as bloggers bring on other writers. (Speaking of celeb sites, this series on what really happened to the Superficial is a fascinating read.)

Danai Gurira, Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride are currently negotiating “groundbreaking multiple-year ‘franchise/universe’ deals” that mean if their characters get written off or moved to another Walking Dead property, they’ll still get paid. It also looks like Gurira will take over as the lead of the show, which makes way more sense than Reedus (unless everything’s changed since I last watched and his character says more than 4 words in every episode).

Ariana Grande‘s exes seem ok with her mentioning them in her breakup song. Pete Davidson reportedly didn’t get an advanced listen, but as soon as he heard it he asked Lorne Michael’s permission to address their relationship on SNL.

-It took way, way too long, but Rebel Wilson has finally apologized for her comments and for blocking people who called her out on it.

-Here’s a clip from Shoplifters — one of the best movies I’ve seen this year.

Matthew Rhys and Jamie Dornan star in the trailer for the new BBC show Death in Nightingales. Please, somebody air this here!

Tiffany Haddish Takes To The Streets

Tiffany Haddish and Billy Eichner took to the streets to cast a more inclusive Hocus Pocus. (It’s so funny, despite the unnecessary Kathy Najimy slam.)

-I’ll never question Meghan Markle‘s hair conspiracists again… (That’s not true; I totally will. But they were right about the no waves = pregnant thing, I guess.)

-Also, this is the first outfit I’ve seen her in where she kinda sorta maybe looks pregnant.

-A David Schwimmer doppleganger is wanted by the police, and the internet is having a field day with it. The British police even had to issue a statement confirming that they have ruled out the actor as a suspect in a beer theft case after posting a “wanted” picture of someone who bore a striking resemblance to the Friends star. At least he seems to be having a lot of fun with it, posting his own alibi video.

-Everyone wants to know all about Jennifer Garner’s new boyfriend, a CEO who she’s reportedly been dating for 6 months. He seems very cute in this company video he shot.

Ellen Pompeo says she was “completely shocked” by backlash over her paycheck. Um, really?

-Also, Ellen gave some pretty terrible advice about ovarian cancer screenings, which is not great Bob. If we can’t take medical advice from fake TV doctors, who can we take it from?!

Ariana Grande‘s family is reportedly relieved that her engagement to Pete Davidson fell through, sources told People.

-How can Disney be talking about “rebooting” the Pirates franchise? It’s still an active franchise — they just released one!

-I absolutely agree with this take that Jennifer’s Body would kill if it were released today.

-Timeless fans, expect an air date announcement about the wrap-up movie soon.

-Drake threw a 2000s-themed party for his birthday and I feel old.

-Speaking of feeling old, it’s the 10th anniversary of Twilight. Director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Jackson Rathbone returned to the site where the vampire baseball scene was filmed.

-I really love how critics are getting behind Legends of Tomorrow. It really is a delight.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which recently swept the Emmys despite no one I know watching it.

Sandra Bullock will do whatever it takes for her family to survive in Bird Box, dropping December 21 on Netflix. This looks intense — like The Quiet Place but instead of staying quiet to avoid the creatures, you have to stay blindfolded.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Daughter Apple Steps Into the Spotlight

-Whoa. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin‘s daughter Apple is a stunner. I wonder if this post was her unofficial public debut? GP has always been very resistant to post her kids’ faces.

-Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson refuses to discuss her relationship with Chris Martin in a new interview but adds “but I’m very happy.”

-That collective gasp you just heard came from royal watchers when Meghan Markle dared to close her own car door.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj‘s drama is far from over. The latest development? A trending hashtag called #NickiStoppedMyBag.

-Also, Taraji P. Henson does a solid Cardi B impression.

-This interview with TV writer Alan Yang is great — but the best part is when he talks about how insane Secret Santa got on the Parks and Recreation set.

-Speaking of Parks and Rec alums, Rashida Jones has reportedly welcomed a baby boy with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. I didn’t even know they were dating, let alone expecting.

-Today is all about undercover pregnancies! Rachel Weisz gave birth to her and Daniel Craig‘s first child.

Mindy Kaling is teasing her diverse remake of Four Weddings and a Funeral, which she just started casting: “Everyone is smoking hot, and the stories are juicy.”

Rihanna can’t catch a break. Her mansion has been broken into for the second time this year.

-You know what’s nuts about this photo of JLo’s muscles? She’s keeping her hand soft, which means she’s not even hard flexing! I’m so jealous!

-Comedian Ted Alexandro went to Louis C.K.’s old stomping grounds and tore him up.

-I really liked this appreciation of Keira Knightley‘s period pieces: “In all of Keira Knightley’s historical films, she is at the center. She is not relegated to the role of love interest; men are.”

-I love that Leighton Meester‘s comedy skills are highlighted in every review I’ve read for Single Parents (aka the only new sitcom I have any interest in checking out).

-What the heck is Blake Lively wearing here? (Oops, I forgot that we’re not supposed to ask her about that. Just pretend you didn’t see it!)

-Interesting to see critics pushing back at Jonah Hill’s directorial debut Mid90s. I haven’t seen it but it was met with rapt applause by male critics at TIFFs — but female critics seemed less impressed.

Steve Carell suddenly looks like a thirst trap and everyone’s confused.

-Survivor is now open to contestants from Canada, in case any of you are interested and/or crazy.

-The only things I know about these characters are from silly CW superhero shows, but I’m very here for Jurnee Smollett-Bell to play Black Canary and and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to play The Huntress in the Birds of Prey movie.

-The Tea with the Dames trailer is hella cute.

-Oh wow, the trailer for Creed 2 looks so, so good!
