Hannah Waddingham and Juno Temple: Ted Lasso’s Unlikely BFFs

Ted-Lasso-Hannah-Waddingham-and-Juno-Temple

-I love this profile on Ted Lasso costars and friends Hannah Waddingham and Juno Temple. They talk masculinity, sports, and how Waddingham considers Temple a “fairy godmother unicorn” to her daughter.

-Meanwhile, one thing that came up repeatedly in Jason Sudeikis’ GQ profile is how much like Ted Lasso his friends think he is. Here’s more proof: a journalist shared an email that Sudeikis had written him after their interview three years ago, in which the reporter mentioned that he’d recently lost his dad. It is the most heartwarming, positive, Lasso-esque thing ever. “It’s important and fucking necessary for us human beings to do that. To connect. To share. And to not concern ourselves too much with the outcome of such bravery. Especially the men of the world. Our generation is the first to “understand” that notion, but darn it, I’d love to try and be the first generation of fellas to “live” the notion as well.”

-This is a great deep dive into the inexplicable allure of Pete Davidson.

-In court yesterday, Britney Spears said she wants to charge her father with conservatorship abuse. “I want to press charges against my father today. I want an investigation into my dad….I was always extremely scared of my dad.” She also said her hair vitamins and coffee have been confiscated (“Ma’am, that’s not abuse, that’s just f*cking cruelty. Excuse my language, but it’s the truth”). She gave a shout out to the #FreeBritney movement and used the hashtag for the first time.

Ashton Kutcher said Mila Kunis convinced him to give up his Virgin Galactic ticket. “My wife basically encouraged that it was not a smart family decision to be heading into space when we have young children.”

-I’ve always liked Chrissy Teigen but her latest post is nuts. We’re all emotionally battered from the pandemic, Cubans are starving, Nasa is warning that the moon is wobbling, and she’s over here making posts complaining about being “cancelled”??!? First, if your platform includes 34M Insta followers and 13M Twitter followers, you are anything but cancelled. Second, I will never understand celebrities who don’t seem to have friends they can complain about this shit with in a group chat, rather than airing it all in public.

-The reviews for Apple’s Schmigadoon are decidedly mixed, but I’m still looking forward to it.

-YouTuber and TikToker Hunter “Echo” Ecimovic did an Instagram livestream on Tuesday, saying that he “groomed” Mille Bobbie Brown. She’s having none of it.

-Netflix might be getting into the video games business.

-I love that Kat Graham is in Cannes. She was the best thing about The Vampire Diaries and I only want good things for her.

-Love Actually and Sanditon actor Kris Marshall apologized for his ‘offensive and insensitive’ comments after Death in Paradise exit. He said that he felt his son was becoming “a bit too Caribbean” after spending three years on the island of Guadeloupe.

-I know people really liked the Loki finale, but that was extremely unsatisfying to me. It felt more like a big setup for the future of the MCU, rather than the conclusion of the story they were trying to tell. A show that has — up until this point — been so centered on Loki had a finale that just….wasn’t. (The guest star killed it though.)

-Here’s the first trailer for Taika Waititi‘s new Hulu show Reservation Dogs.

 

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas: Rubbish or Reconciling?

-The latest on the BenAna split: Page Six is reporting that Ana de Armas has been looking at rental homes in Los Angeles, which throws their official line about wanting to live different places into doubt. Their source claims they broke up because she wants kids and he wasn’t willing to commit to it.

-I’m not sure how amicable it all can be when Ben Affleck had de Armas’ life-size cardboard cutout tossed in the trash in full view of the paparazzi.

-Still, sources are claiming a reconciliation is entirely possible.

-Meanwhile, these are clearly breakup bangs.

Dua Lipa is sorry that her random emoji smashing made everyone think she’s pregnant.

Miley Cyrus overshared in a new interview, offering her opinion on penises: “It’s good if it can just get in and go away, because I don’t want it eyeing me up. That’s truly how I feel…Everyone knows that tits are prettier than balls.”

-All five seasons of the original Muppet Show is coming to Disney+, including two seasons that have never been released on home video.

-It’s kind of wild to me that Freaks and Geeks is going to air on Hulu with the show’s original soundtrack. That must have been an insane music licensing deal. I guess that’s one way for 80s bands to keep making money.

-Tonight’s episode of This Is Us has been postponed due to covid production delays.

-Supermodel Stephanie Seymour‘s son has died at age 24. Harry Brant passed away from an accidental overdose of prescription medication on Sunday, according to a statement from his family. His parents say he was just “days away” from rehab.

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster hopped on a Zoom call to reminisce about Silence of the Lambs, and talk about his new movie The Father.

Meghan Markle’s legal team went to court today to seek a “summary judgment” against the Mail on Sunday.

-Tiger King’s Joe Exotic has a stretch limo waiting for him outside his prison, convinced that Trump is going to pardon him today.

Lil Wayne is also reportedly expecting a pardon.

-This is a great interview with a bunch of late-night show writers on what it was like trying to wring humour from Trump’s actions over the past four years. “It’s like drinking poison: How much poison can I make myself drink today?”

Josh Duhamel is in talks to replace Armie Hammer in that Jennifer Lopez movie.

-Cheetos is teasing its new Super Bowl ad with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

-I couldn’t get into the new Saved by the Bell reboot, but people seem to love it so I’m glad it’s been renewed for a second season.

Here are 10 times when Dolly Parton made the world a better place.

-The trailer for the second Euphoria special episode focuses on Jules. It drops this weekend.

Demi Lovato “Stable” Following Reported Overdose

-I’m so glad to hear that Demi Lovato is “stable” following her reported OD. (Initial reports said heroin, but sources close to her insist it wasn’t that. She was treated with Narcan, which apparently one of her friends had on hand, which is used in overdoses of heroin, oxy, and other narcotics.) She’s reportedly awake and recovering. I’m rooting for that girl. She’s always been admirably candid and transparent about her struggles.

Beyoncé’s team is reportedly in the middle of negotiations to debut her next visual album on Netflix. Not Tidal? Hmmmm…

-TIFF’s announced its first round of films. I love that they got The Hate U Give and Widows as world premieres, as well as Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell‘s Beautiful Boy and This is Us creator Dan Fogelman‘s Life Itself. (There will also be an interesting rematch: TIFF will premiere new films from both Damien Chazelle and Barry Jenkins, who were neck-and-neck last year with La La Land and Moonlight).

Karlie Kloss is engaged to Joshua Kushner. But how is she going to marry Taylor Swift now?!

-Yet another TV critic has turned TV creator: TVLine’s Michael Ausiello is making an 80s dramedy based on his childhood.

-Community’s Dan Harmon may have been one of the first male celebs to get caught in #MeToo, but it’s an old Adult Swim video that might really hurt him. The Rick and Morty co-creator made a parody pilot of Showtime’s Dexter in 2009 that featured Harmon’s character traveling back in time to stop serial killers by sexually assaulting them when they were infants. And yeah, that’s pretty damn offensive. But Harmon is the only guy in the Me Too movement so far to give a decent apology and actually seem like he’s actively trying to change. Another wrinkle: much like James Gunn, this offensive stuff resurfaced thanks to 4chan and far-right subreddits. In recent days, this same types have also gone after Michael Ian Black, Trevor Noah and Patton Oswalt.

-This is a great piece about how black women have been calling out R. Kelly for years and nobody listened.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell are teaming up for a Fosse-Verdon series at FX. I like all of those words!!

ATX’s Felicity reunion is now available to watch IN FULL on YouTube. There goes my next hour…

-On Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast (which I’m finding oddly endearing), Mila Kunis says she did something bad to end her eight-year relationship with Macaulay Culkin. “I f**ked up. I was an asshole in my 20s and I’ll be the first to admit it. And that’s something that took me a long time to come out and be like, ‘Yeah, you know what, I was a dick,’ and accept it and I own it. And it’s f**ked up what I did. It’s f**ked up what I did, and it’s f**ked up how I did it.” She didn’t expand on what exactly she did, though.

-This might be the most surprising split of the summer: Girls duo Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner have parted ways as producing partners. Sources tell THR they’re in talks for individual overall deals with HBO.

-After a rough same-day premiere, Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America?’s series debut has doubled its audience after seven days. Per Showtime, most of the added viewing came via on demand and streaming. But I’m still not entirely sure who this show is aimed at. Like, the people who would watch already know that his targets are dumb. Also, I hate that Cohen and his all-male writing staff thought that a “prank” against The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios (who was the centre of the reality show’s sexual assault investigation) would be funny. It was not.

Alita: Battle Angel from James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez has its first trailer.
