Scott Eastwood Remembers Girlfriend Who Died In Car Crash


Scott Eastwood covers the new issue of GQ Australia, in which he talks about losing a girlfriend to a car accident, and how his dad once punched him in the face when he was 16. And now I feel bad for Scott Eastwood. This is new.

-This is an excellent, excellent interview with Donald Glover about addressing black culture in his new show.

Sarah Paulson is joining Feud,  Ryan Murphy‘s new show based on the conflict between Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. This cast is INSANE. Jessica Lange is Crawford, Susan Sarandon is Davis, Paulson is Oscar-winner Geraldine Page, Catherine Zeta-Jones is Olivia de Havilland, and Judy Davis is gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. I mean, jesus.

-Unfortunately, Paulson‘s career winning streak continues to not translate into fashion wins.

-The Anne of Green Gables TV adaptation has been picked up by Netflix. This is awesome! Someone I know is working on the production in Toronto.

-In his new interview with the Guardian, Miles Teller tries to do some serious damage control following that douchey Esquire interview. “If I read this and you call me an asshole, I’m going to be so pissed off.”

Jennifer Lawrence and Melissa McCarthy are topping Forbes 2016 list of highest-paid actresses again.

-I’m not sure why Halle Berry, Priyanka Chopra and Jodie Foster are doing dramatic readings of Britney Spears lyrics, but I’ll take it.

John Cho will play a wine connoisseur/con artist in a new series that sounds like it was lifted directly from my dreams.

-Speaking of shows straight out of my dreams, Idris Elba is making a docuseries where he attempts to become a professional kickboxer.

Joseph Fiennes has been cast as the male lead opposite Elisabeth Moss in Hulu’s take on The Handmaids Tale. Man, this summer is all about Atwood adaptation news, huh? I’m not complaining.

-I liked this defense of Mr Robot season 2. The show definitely zigged when I expected it to zag, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

-I have a very limited amount of gala tickets at TIFF this year and I didn’t want to waste them on films that will premiere at other festivals first, but this new trailer for La La Land means I no longer care about that. Gorgeous!

The Stars of Ghostbusters Take Over Elle


-I love all four Elle covers featuring the stars of Ghostbusters!

-Speaking of Ghostbuster stars, here’s photographic proof that Melissa McCarthy is on the set of the Gilmore Girls revival — complete with Sookie’s trademark headscarf.

Lin-Manuel Miranda penned a powerful op-ed against the ticket-purchasing bots that are monopolizing Broadway sales. “You shouldn’t have to fight robots just to see something you love.”

-Speaking of Miranda, his edition of Carpool Karaoke is my new favourite — though I wish he had another song or two before Audra McDonald, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Jane Krakowski climbed into the backseat. Still, I got goosebumps when they started in on “Seasons of Love,” and Audra‘s final note on “One Day More”? Jesus.

-Meanwhile, James Corden explained to Stephen Colbert how Carpool Karaoke went from a lowly sketch idea to a phenomenon.

-A computer expert has authenticated Amber Heard‘s texts referencing Johnny Depp‘s alleged abuse, while one of her friends is defending her by saying, “How much evidence does a woman need to present?”

-Meanwhile, TMZ continues to work for Team Depp.

Beyoncé referenced Khalessi in her powerful CFDA fashion icon acceptance speech. (She also slayed in a Givenchy ladysuit.)

-Speaking of the CFDAs, this might be my favourite look ever on Jessica Chastain.

-A Quentin Tarantino-produced film put out a casting call for “whores” because the world is awful.

Jamie Lee Curtis cosplayed with her son for the Warcraft premiere, a movie she’s not even in. That makes her a pretty boss mom.

-Meanwhile, Warcraft is KILLING it overseas — despite being called ‘The Battlefield Earth’ Of The 21st Century.’

Daniel Radcliffe freaked out at the sight of his historical doppelgangers on The Tonight Show. “What is it about me that I look like so many stern old ladies?”

-Hmmm…this doesn’t bode well: Chris Messina will not be a regular on the next season of The Mindy Project.

Helen Mirren is endorsing Kim Kardashian’s nude selfies: “I love shameless women. Shameless and proud!”

-Hmmm…I’m so curious which two TV shows fired Kerry Washington for not being “hood” enough.

-I wish I could unsee Meryl Streep donning a fat suit and orangeface to impersonate Donald Trump.

Will Smith will serve as a pallbearer at Muhammad Ali’s funeral.

-Speaking of Will, his daughter Willow joined him onstage to perform “Summertime.”

Scott Speedman was told to put his shirt on for Animal Kingdom. I KNEW there was a reason I wasn’t recording that show! (Also, this interview reminds me what a goddamn charmbomb his is. Cast him in everything, Hollywood.)

-Well, this is terrifying:  Jeremy Jordan is trying to save his cousin from a “pray away the gay” camp.

-I don’t think Supergirl should cast Superman because he could threaten to overwhelm the show BUT if they must, these suggestions are great. Matt Bomer doesn’t seem realistic, but Scott Porter or Enver Gjokaj? YASS!

-An adorable girl vomited on Paula Abdul after dancing to Beyoncé on SYTYCD. Paula, to her credit, rolled with it.

-This photo that Reese Witherspoon tweeted from the Big Little Liars set makes me even more excited to see this movie. I loved the book and the cast is insane: Nicole Kidman, Adam Scott, Laura Dern, Zoe Isabella Kravitz, Shailene Woodley.

Selena Gomez caught a fan FaceTiming at her show and got in on the action.

Drake disses Diddy in his new song “4PM in Calabasas.” Slow down, buddy. I haven’t even finished your new 20-track album.

Nick Offerman costars with his dad in a new ad and shows us who he got his taciturn nature from.

Samantha Bee asks Jon Stewart for help with a horse. #FriendshipGoals

-I am both terrified and intrigued by Kate Hudson‘s ‘electro shock’ under-eye patches.

-It took a lot of work to make Ryan Reynolds look that gross in Deadpool.

-Oof. Last night’s season premiere of UnREAL only managed to nab 500K viewers. Good thing we already know there’s a season 3 coming.

-The Japanese Ghostbusters trailer reveals more footage.

Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Family and 40s


-Maybe it’s because I’m getting closer and closer to turning 40, or maybe it’s just because she’s wearing me down, but I really responded to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s new interview in Redbook. (I mean, after I got past her description of GOOP’s new headquarters, which is a repurposed 1920s chicken coop because of course it is…)

Diane Kruger is bad-mouthing Peter O’Toole, even though (or maybe because?) he’s dead. “You know who wasn’t very pleasant, was Peter O’Toole. It kind of sucked. He’s dead, so I can say that.” Can you, though??

-Blackish’s Tracee Ellis Ross has the best Prince story yet.

Julianna Marguiles talked to the NYT about The Good Wife’s ending, saying there’s “no amount of money in the world” that would convince her to commit to another 22-episode series. She also refused to comment on Archie Panjabi, saying “It’s all silly gossip, and I don’t want to go there.”

-ABC proves they’re not complete idiots by signing both Viola Davis and Kerry Washington to overall deals to develop new shows.

-Vulture got Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s writers to walk them through season 2’s most memorable jokes.  Sadly, they didn’t cover my favourite: “When you were little, did you think he was handsome and then, like, your crotch got a headache?”

-Whoa. 20th Century Fox just pulled out of their big Hall H presentation at Comic Con — because they’re afraid of trailer piracy. What?! It’s TRAILERS. The whole point of them is to generate buzz/interest. How can that ever be a bad thing? The leaked Deadpool footage basically got that movie made.

Melissa McCarthy gives good speech.

Tegan and Sara‘s awesome new video features the equally awesome Mae Whitman and Rachel Antonoff.

-I still haven’t watched season 2 of Catastrophe (but it’s only 6 1/2-hour eps, so I might tackle it this weekend), but I love this article pointing out it’s greatest strength: the characters actually make each other laugh. You never really see that in comedies.

Ellen tricked Julia Roberts into selling sex toys. Fair.

Kelly Ripa is making contract negotiation jokes in front of Michael Strahan and he is not amused.
-Guys, there’s a Beyoncé-Jay Z fanfic that’s taking over the internet right now and I wanna blow off my next meeting to read it so bad.

-I really liked this article on the lack of blue collar representation on TV these days.

Geena Davis and Emma Watson talk feminism in the new issue of Interview.

-This Buzzfeed video about how TV needs to stop killing gay women is very good. (“Why not a gay ghost? Let their spirit live inside a cat.”)

Alicia Vikander will star as Lara Croft in the next Tomb Raider. Meh. At least it’s not another costume drama.

-Speaking of, Alicia and Dane DeHaan are secret lovers in the first Tulip Fever trailer.

-The new Captain Fantastic trailer left me with lots of ‘what the hell happened with Viggo Mortensen?’ questions.

-Here’s the first trailer for Snowden, in which Nic Cage says things like “find the terrorist in the internet haystack” and Joseph Gordon-Levitt does really weird stuff with his voice.
