Amy Schumer is shooting down pregnancy rumours — though this photo and caption seemed designed to bait the belly bump watchers.

-You’re internet boyfriend Michael B Jordan might be dating someone who isn’t you. Sorry.

-I don’t watch Agents of Shield but I follow Chloe Bennet on Instagram because she’s a charmbomb. So I was a little confused with Logan Paul started popping up in her stories, but I assumed they were filming something together. But she confirmed that they’re actually dating. Girl…

-Mission: Impossible Fallout is getting impossibly good reviews, with EW calling it “insanely great” and The Verge saying director Christopher McQuarrie “just became one of our best action filmmakers.”

Samantha Bee reflected on the outrage over her Ivanka Trump comments: “I think we handled it well, but it was a pretty steep learning curve.”

-Some of the house built by Brad Pitt‘s Make It Right foundation in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina reportedly need some work.

-The Emmy nominations this morning delivered a few happy surprises: Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) snuck in over Emilia Clarke (GoT), Sandra Oh became the FIRST Asian woman to earn an Emmy nomination for lead actress drama, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt edged out Modern Family’s spot (finally!! – though I wish Better Things or The Good Place had taken over Curb Your Enthusiasm’s spot). And most importantly, Megan Amram got her nomination!!

-Most of the nominations were kind of meh, though. I liked this take on how it was the triumph of “ok” TV.

-This is the first time in 18 years that HBO has not led all TV networks in noms; instead Netflix is now leading the way.

Will Smith and Kelly Ripa took on the “In My Feelings” challenge.

-Here’s some terrifying footage that shows the moment George Clooney was flung into the air when his scooter collided with a car in Italy, just in case you never want to sleep again…

Mira Sorvino says she lost a role after an unnamed Oscar-winning director sexually harassed her.

-A top executive has left Billboard after being accused of suppressing stories about sexual harassment.

-Stranger Things’ Joe Keery and Maika Monroe nailed the Dirty Dancing lift.

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie reign supreme in the Mary Queen Of Scots trailer.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Get Matching Tattoos

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson moved into a $16 million NYC apartment.  They also got more matching tats. What is this life?

-In her Rolling Stone cover story, Cardi B says she plans to take her baby on the road on her upcoming tour with Bruno Mars: “I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.” She also sounds off on Trump: “He has proven himself to be a madman so many times, and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn’t gotten him impeached.”

-On Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Cher for a list of her best lovers over the years and she put Tom Cruise “in the top 5.” Well.

-Jeebus. Whatever you think Chris Hardwick did or did not do to Chloe Dykstra, his subsequent behaviour following her essay has been repugnant. First there was his gaslighting, victimized denial.  And now “somebody” has leaked private texts between the two to TMZ, which show that he broke up with her and she tried to reconcile.  What in the world did he expect this to prove? She was already clear in her essay that she kissed another man when they were together, which caused their split. And anyone who thinks that women who’ve been manipulated and abused don’t have complicated relationships with their manipulator and/or don’t often get sucked back in, needs to talk to more women IRL.

-Meanwhile, it’s very telling that so few people who know or worked for Hardwick have jumped to his defense. I’ve seen lots of verifieds back up Dykstra, but not one tweet from a blue checkmark that says anything along the lines of “wow, this really doesn’t line up with what I know of him.” And last night The Wrap posted an article which quoted a bunch of his colleagues and former employees, and the general consensus seems to be “nobody’s surprised.”

George and Amal Clooney have donated $100K to help reunite migrant children who’ve been separated from their parents.

Judd Apatow is calling for a total boycott of Fox and urging entertainers who work for Fox movies and TV to speak out — and many have, including New Girl showrunner Liz Meriwether, Marti Noxon, You’re The Worst showrunner Stephen Falk, and actor Adam Scott. But some of the celebs who are staying silent are surprising.

-I am very glad that this New York Times interview with Josh Brolin on his blockbuster moment doesn’t shy away from his history of domestic violence with Diane Lane. The fact that the “summer of Brolin” coincides with #MeToo is deeply odd. Not surprisingly, he skirts the issue. “God, I’ve never been so careful with my words. Ever. Maybe in all 50 years. And there’s no reason for me to be other than there’s no explaining it. Do you know what I mean? The only person who can explain that would be Diane, and she’s chosen not to, so I’m O.K. with that.”

-Oh, he also just signed on to do a show on Hulu. Ok.

-I can’t believe this is what Justin Bieber is looking like these days. How? When? How?

-Amy Adams talked about being mistaken for her stand-in on her new HBO show, and being shocked by how differently she was treated when they thought she was someone else.  “At one point somebody grabbed me really hard and pulled me. I went, ‘What’s going on?’ And they’re like ‘(Gasp) You’re not Reb!'”

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has been ordered to pay $100k/month in child and spousal support.

Busy Phillips has a book coming out! Yes, please.

-Plans for future A Star Wars Story films — including the Obi-Wan movie — have been put on hold. This seems like a good idea. Not that I doubt we won’t be getting a ton more standalone SW films soon, but after Solo a pause and regroup makes sense.

-The saga of John Travolta‘s latest box office flop Gotti keeps getting stranger. Its weird anti-critic campaign may include tampering with Rotten Tomatoes’ audience rating.

-This Felicity cast interview is delightfully bonkers. (I now want a Scott Speedman/Scott Foley sitcom based on these interactions.)

James Van Der Beek‘s wife had a home birth for their fifth (fifth!) kid and he documented it on IG.

Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis look appropriately buff while filming Terminator 6.

-Hmmm…the latest episode of The Handmaid’s Tale comes with a warning “This episode has content that may be extra sensitive for some viewers” — but the show has become so brutal that TV critics couldn’t figure out which scene they were referring to. (Well, female critics, anyway.)

-In the trailer for the Robert Zemeckis–directed Welcome to Marwen, Steve Carell plays a man whose life is shattered after being beaten within an inch of his life by a group of Nazis. He copes with his trauma by making art out of an elaborate WWII doll village called Marwen.

Michael B Jordan is a dad (and a daddy!) in the new Creed 2 trailer.

Issa Rae and Michael B Jordan Talk Breaking Down Barriers

-I always love Variety’s Actors on Actors pairings. This year’s covers feature Claire Foy and Benedict Cumberbatch, Issa Rae and Michael B JordanLaura Dern and Angela Bassett, and more.

-Grey’s Anatomy’s Jesse Williams has asked for his ex-wife’s request for increased child support, already at $50,695 per month, to be denied.

Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty talked about their favorite parts of the royal wedding. “I met four different Harrys, which was really cool.”

Kim Kardashian admits she and Kanye West had words after he made that slavery comment. “Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah. That’s not stuff we put on social media.” (It is, however, the stuff he put on his new album.)

-This is some bullshit: Kelly Marie Tran  erased all of her Instagram posts following months of harassment by whiny Star Wars crybabies. How can anyone be mean to her?! She is a literal ball of sunshine! She’s like a rare unicorn I want to pet! Fanboys are the goddamn worst.

-The news about Kate Spade is gutting. Celebrities are paying tribute to her on Twitter.

-ABC’s Roseanne spinoff is inching closer to reality. Sources say that the network is knee-deep in talks with exec producers for a new incarnation of the multicamera comedy, and its likely the entire cast – sans star Roseanne Barr – and creative team and crew would return. But since Barr created the character, there’s a good chance she’ll still get paid if they go ahead with a spinoff. They should just scrap the whole concept and bring everyone back with an entirely new premise.

-Variety is hosting a drama TV writers panel that features zero women, and is getting dragged accordingly.

Angelina Jolie celebrated her 43rd birthday by riding roller coasters in England with her six kids.

-I don’t know how I missed this story over the weekend about Benedict Cumberbatch jumping out of an Uber to save a cyclist from muggers, but it’s glorious!

George Clooney, when asked which movie had the biggest impact on his craft, said “It’s really easy to pick: Batman & Robin. That’s not a joke. Up until that moment, I was an actor only concerned with finding work. After the failure of that film creatively, I understood that I needed to take control of the films I made.”

-The first reviews for Jurassic World are in, and they are decidedly mixed.

-This story about Harold Ramis and Amy Heckerling‘s secret daughter is fascinating.

-16 female critics and authors weigh in on Hollywood’s new trend of gender-flipping blockbusters and whether it’s a triumph for diversity or a cynical attempt to squeeze more money out of old franchises.

Reese Witherspoon is in talks for Legally Blonde 3, and Stephen Colbert has already figured out the best movie premise.

-I’m scared of horror movies and nothing could possibly convince me to watch Hotel Artemis … [sees Sterling K Brown in a towel]…ok, where do I buy tickets?

Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges this morning in New York.

Katherine Heigl documented her TV trailer makeover, which may be the most Katherine Heigl-ish thing I’ve ever seen.
