Tessa Thompson Wants To Change Hollywood

tessa thompson time cover

Tessa Thompson covers the new issue of Time, in which she talks about how the industry is slow to change (“Every big opportunity I have been provided has always been with people of color. There is a long list of white, male filmmakers I would love to work with but they just don’t see me. They just don’t”) and refusing to answer to nicknames on the Men In Black set (“If Chris [Hemsworth] is ‘sweetie,’ I can be ‘sweetie,’ too. But if he’s Chris, I’m Tessa”).

-This is boss: Michelle Rodriguez has confirmed that she will reprise her role for Fast & Furious 9 — but only after securing an agreement for a female writer to join the production.

Meghan Markle‘s friends are coming to her defense in a new TV special called Meghan and Harry Plus One, hosted by Gayle King.

Maya Rudolph is such a good friend, she was willing to stick her hand down an airplane toilet for Amy Poehler.

-God, I love that Tiffany Haddish keeps wearing that dress.

-The latest episode of Law & Order: SVU is getting heavy criticism for reportedly enflaming Islamophobia. The showrunner’s responses to people on Twitter about it are certainly not helping.

Bill Murray talking about Selena Gomez is all kinds of sweet: “I really like her. I mean, you still can’t tell me who the hell ‘Selena Gomez’ is — but Gomez… I really like. She’s unusually bright. She’s kind and she’s natural. I’m always pleased to find some kind of pop icon who I really like.”

-Greys Anatomy’s Ellen Pompeo tore into The Bachelor boss over his tweets to Kelly Ripa: “we don’t attack successful women on our network.” I think I love her. When she’s done playing Meredith, she should write a book on how to be an ally because she’s been crushing it.

-An Amell is starring in the adaptation of The Hating Game!?! It’s the combination of my two favourite things!!! (I literally just fangirled over that author at a reading last month.) Lucy Hale is playing the female lead, which is a pretty good fit for the role physically.

Lucy is having a big day. The trailer for her Riverdale spinoff also came out. Other new CW trailers include Nancy Drew and Batwoman.

-I don’t love the silly petition by Game of Thrones fans (we can bitch and moan about TV shows but the only thing we’re entitled to control is our remotes; if you hate it, just turn it off and write fanfic), but I do love the totally ludicrous and not gonna happen “Jamie is still alive” theory.

-Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie told EW she was not happy when she found out that Jamie was leaving Brienne for Cersei. “That’s where I went very red. I was very upset and I had to go for a walk.”

-I also totally missed the point of Varys’ rings last episode, but this makes sense.

David Letterman sent a surprise message of support to Busy Phillips and her showrunner (who started as his assistant).

-If someone asked me to guess who in Hollywood was bringing back the Saw franchise, Chris Rock wouldn’t have been at the top of my list.

-God bless Chloe Sevigny – aka the only person in the world who can wear this outfit and not incite ridicule.

Sarah Jessica Parker is over those annual tabloid rumours about her marriage.

Always Be My Maybe‘s previous trailer already made it looked great but holy shit is that Keanu???

All Hail, Baby Archie!

-Cue the jingle jangle jokes: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry called their baby Archie. The couple has chosen not to use courtesy titles so it’ll be Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. When Charles is King he’ll automatically become Prince Archie, but he (or his parents) may choose not to use it.

-Earlier today, Meghan and Harry presented the baby in a brief interview, and they both looked glowingly happy. (I love what she wore.)

-Meanwhile, George Clooney says he hopes for  kinder treatment of Meghan in the media going forward.

-In other baby news, Amy Schumer called her son Gene.

Stephen Colbert surprised Anne Hathaway last night on the Late Show by introducing her to RuPaul and she cried.

-Have we traveled back in time? Britney Spears has been granted a temporary restraining order against Sam Lutfi for herself, her children and her parents.

-Even the guy who plays Gendry thinks that Game of Thrones marriage proposal was silly. “He just got a bit gassed and asked someone to marry him. And she quite rightly told him where to go. What a stupid question! I think he knows deep down in his heart of hearts there is no way Arya will ever be anyone’s lady.”

Drake wearing a Breaker High sweatshirt last night at the Raptors game is all the CanCon I’ve ever wanted.

Rebel Wilson posted some TBT photos of the time Kristen Wiig took the Bridesmaids cast to a strip club. Trust me, you’re gonna want to click.

Robert Downey Jr.‘s “I love you, 3,000” line is based on something his children say to him. *sob*

-Batwoman, Nancy Drew and a Riverdale spinoff have been ordered to series by the CW.

-The original 90201 cast reunites for a table read in a teaser for their new show.

Kate McKinnon gives Emma Thompson a tour in her SNL promo. I. CAN’T. WAIT.

Busy Phillipps got candid about getting an abortion at 15 on her show following Georgia’s passing of the “heartbeat bill.”

-I’m bummed that Amy Poehler‘s new Netflix movie Wine Country isn’t getting great reviews, but I’m still going to watch the crap out of it.

-This is an interesting take on the future of romcoms after the very well-reviewed Long Shot flopped at the box office.

-I got a kick out of this oral history of the most shocking Survivor moment in history, which aired 11 years ago today.

-An army of Rorschach copycats take to the streets in the first teaser trailer for HBO’s Watchmen series.

Emma Roberts Talks BFF and Book Clubs in Cosmo

-In her Cosmo cover story, Emma Roberts skirts questions about her split from Evan Peters (“I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended. It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience”), instead preferring to talk about what books she’s currently reading. Fair enough.

Kumail Nanjiani is the latest celeb to appear on Gay of Thrones in an episode that is way more enjoyable than the one they’re recapping.

-Speaking of the last episode of Game of Thrones, Jessica Chastain blasted the show for that Sansa moment, tweeting: “Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The little bird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.”

-Uh oh. Britney Spears’ mother believes her daughter is in such bad shape she’s requesting the court date over conservatorship be moved up to Wednesday.

-I spent a lot of time last night trying to figure out whether a Met Gala outfit was camp or not. Check out some of the most memorable outfits.

-Also, I can’t stop staring at this photo of Michael Urie on the Met steps.

-After years of trying to keep their relationship under wraps, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx made a rare public appearance at the Met Gala together.

-Every year the Met Gala has a “no selfies” rule, and every year celebrities break it.

-Yikes. When asked about the Michael Jackson doc Leaving Neverland, Madonna said “I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty.”

-In his newly released memoir, Common says he was molested as a child, and Laura Dern helped him process it on the set of The Tale.

-Some of Meghan Markle‘s family continue to be garbage people.

-This Tracy Morgan profile in the New Yorker is a trip. It seems like spending any amount of time with him would be both frustrating and fascinating.

George Clooney says he “hit the jackpot” with his wife and kids. Five years ago, I never would have thought that I’d be typing that sentence…

-Oh no. I was hoping Nicholas Brendon (Buffy’s Xander) had turned his life around recently, but he has been charged with felony domestic violence. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

-Get ready for soo many Avatars and Star Wars. Disney is now scheduling each franchise every other year, starting with Avatar 2 in 2021.

-Poor Channing Tatum. His passion project Gambit continues to remain in development hell.

-I kind of love that Chris Evans is having the best box office moment of his life, and still went to his high school reunion.

Richard Madden in talks to join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s The Eternals and I don’t hate that at all.

Awkwafina grapples with death and culture in the trailer for Farewell, which was beloved at Sundance.
