Ansel Elgort Gets Naked for Charity

Ansel Elgort trended today because he posted a nude photo to Instagram with the caption “OnlyFans link in bio”, but instead of sending people to a paid porn site, the link goes to a GoFundMe page for buying meals for Brooklyn hospital staff. That’s both cringingly thirsty and kind of clever.

-Congrats to the internet’s favourite celebrity couple Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, who welcomed their new baby girl.

J.Lo and A-Rod are trying to buy the New York Mets. That’s one way to combat self-isolation boredom, I guess.

Tiffany Haddish was on Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Red Table Talk and got blunt about what she’s looking for in a guy — and it isn’t what you think: “I prefer small penises because I feel like small ones respect you. They’re kind. They buy you nice gifts. They take you nice places. They’ll come and clean your house; fix your cars for you. Small penises are penises of service. Big penises just do whatever they want to do.”

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post on COVID-19, animal welfare and wet markets.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated the Queen’s 94th birthday with a video call with her and Baby Archie.

-I don’t really know much of Rafe Spall besides the fact that he’s that guy from Life of Pi and Just Mercy, but goodness this is a great interview. On losing weight for roles, he said “I understand it, but you’ve got to be very careful with peddling the basic idea that being thin is happy and being fat is unhappy because all my problems are the same, regardless of the size of my waistline… When I’m extremely disciplined and not eating anything my wife doesn’t find me attractive – what she finds attractive is eating together and the sensuality of food. Look, eating nothing but fish and salad for 12 weeks is the opposite of sex.”

-I’m assuming this live tweet of Anna Kendrick‘s sex doll show on Quibi is far more entertaining than the show could ever be.

Andie Macdowell and her daughters Rainey and Margaret Qualley wanted to go to a closed park so badly, they crawled under a fence to get in. Tom Brady also tried to work out in a closed park. Celebrities, “closed” signs apply to you too!

Rainn Wilson had his Office costar Jenna Fisher on Instagram Live, and she showed off her Dundee Awards.

Jimmy Fallon quizzed costars Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer on which one knows more about the other. Spoiler alert: it didn’t go well.

Kate Hudson celebrated her 41st birthday with a social distancing party.

Kate Beckinsale isn’t taking any criticism about the age gap between her and Goody Grace.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back at it in the Trip to Greece trailer.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

julianne moore in style

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.

Jeremy Renner Releases a Song, Confuses the Internet

-Ohmygod Jeremy Renner just released a sludgerock power ballad and it’s…something. Definitely does *not* slap. What a gift to take us into the long weekend!

-I kind of love that the hottest pop star of the summer is a 17-year-old who refuses to be sexualized. Billie Eilish says she wears baggy clothes on purpose: “What I like about just dressing like I’m 800 sizes bigger than I am is it kind of gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like. I don’t want to give anyone the excuse of judging…I want layers and layers and layers. And I want to be mysterious. You don’t know what’s underneath, and you don’t know what’s on top.”

-Whatever his reputation, Jake Gyllenhaal gives good Instagram.

-The weekend of weddings has kicked off with Katherine McPhee and David Foster’s nuptials.

-Meanwhile, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner were photographed attending a pre-wedding party in the south of France, attended by her Game of Thrones costar Maisie Williams.

-Pretty Little Liars and You star Shay Mitchell announced she’s pregnant, and she’s already signed on to a YouTube original series to follow her path to motherhood.

Jimmy Fallon took Nicki Minaj to Red Lobster, which I love because RL is my fave low classy restaurant.

-Well this is some bullshit: Riz Ahmed‘s Star Wars Celebration appearance in Chicago was canceled because Homeland Security wouldn’t let him board his plane.

Melissa McCarthy is in talks to play Disney villainess Ursula in the live-action remake of Little Mermaid.

Olivia Munn called out Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck, and Quentin Tarantino for being able to “just push past” their #MeToo allegations.

-Girls star Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen are calling it quits after four years of marriage.

-A new oral history about Eyes Wide Shut reveals Cate Blanchett had a secret cameo in the orgy scene!

-Guns N Roses’ Steven Adler has been hospitalized for stabbing himself in the stomach.

Nick Jonas, Patrick Wilson and Mandy Moore star in the trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s WWII drama Midway.
