Miles Teller

Zendaya Stuns in Venice

-It’s been a very long time since a red carpet outfit made me gasp outloud, but Zendaya’s just did.

-The early reactions to her film Dune seem very mixed. It’s getting lots of praise for its spectacle, but some say it seems too focused on setting up a sequel.

-Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart wore pajamas to her premiere. I don’t hate this but Nicole made a good point — elastic waistbands are never ok on a red carpet.

-Stewart’s movie is also getting mixed reviews, though her performance is already getting Oscar buzz.

-I was bracing for a Friday afternoon before the long weekend news dump, but so far it’s just that Kaley Cuoco and her husband have split.

-I’ve only seen this reported by the Daily Mail so far but rumours have it that Miles Teller tested positive for covid after refusing to get the vaccine, shutting down production of The Godfather spinoff series The Offer. I wonder if he’ll be un-hirable after this? Of course, he already showed his true colours in 2015 when he gave such a terrible interview to Esquire that his costars had to do damage control, and that didn’t seem to matter.

Drake‘s new album Certified Lover Boy is here. The video for “Way 2 Sexy” made me laugh, so I guess that makes up for hating the song.

-Why did he have to sample R Kelly and give him a writing credit? WHY?

Paula Cole’s “I Don’t Want to Wait” has been restored on the opening credits of Dawson’s Creek on Netflix. Too bad; I’m sure Jann Arden was enjoying the royalty checks.

Kate Walsh is returning to Grey’s Anatomy for a multi-episode arc when the show returns for its 18th season.

-Rick And Morty casts Christopher Lloyd as Rick in a live-action segment. Who else could play him?

-There’s lots of talk about Joe Rogan actually being vaxxed and not saying so. He’s been playing shows in NYC and he’s been doing events for UFC, so wouldn’t he have to be? I just assume all rich people are.

Prince Harry is calling for increased vaccine education and access, saying “where you’re born should not affect your ability to survive.”

-I’m worried about the pressure being put on Shang-Chi as theatres’ potential pandemic saviour. It’s the first Marvel movie to premiere exclusively in theatres in more than 2 years.

Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock Strike a Pose

-Look at this photo of Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock in Lost City Of D, a movie about a reclusive romance novelist who goes on a book tour with her cover model. Get in my eyeballs, already!

Brad Pitt won joint custody of his kids and everyone seems kind of surprised by it (which is probs a bad sign). Angelina Jolie‘s team is appealing the decision.

-In this week’s episode of KUWTK, Kim Kardashian revealed that she had covid last fall. Buzzfeed dove into the timeline and worked out that it came soon after her infamous private island birthday bash.

-According to Heather Morris, Naya Rivera was the only “honest” one about Lea Michele‘s behavior on the Glee set. “It’s like, we absolutely could have stepped up and gone to the Fox execs and said how we felt about the situation and nobody really did. So now we are living in a culture where it’s acceptable to go do things like that, whereas I think many people were very scared.”

-I liked this profile on Emma Stone, who talks about Cruella, long cigarette holders, and her own origin story: “All I wanted to do was play the daughter on a sitcom!”

Rosario Dawson tweeted after the court dismissed the anti-trans case against her: “That these false claims came from someone we’ve known as chosen family for decades and who we were trying so hard to help out, as we have many times in the past, was very heartbreaking. Nevertheless, we have great empathy for him and have only ever wished him well.”

-Black Panther star Danai Gurira is  getting her own Disney+ series exploring the origins of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje.

Gwen Stefani defended herself against longtime cultural appropriation claims, saying “All these rules are just dividing us more.” Oh no, girl.

-Everyone’s talking about the Friends reunion but I’m more excited for the Kids in the Hall one.

-I still can’t believe this is Kelly Osbourne.

Chris Noth is coming back as Mr. Big for the Sex and the City reboot.

-The first look at the new Gossip Girl reboot is here. I’m intrigued that Tavi Gevinson is part of the cast, and surprised that Kristen Bell is back to narrate.

Oprah Shoots Down Presidential Rumours

Oprah Winfrey Won’t Run for President in 2020 Vogue

-In her lovely new British Vogue cover story, Oprah says she has no plans to run for president in 2020: “I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.” She also says she almost wore white to the royal wedding and had to Google it to see if it would be taboo.

-Fifth time’s a charm? Odd couple David Foster, 68, and Katharine McPhee, 34, got engaged while on vacation in Italy.

Seth Rogen says he’s had conversations with Twitter about their “bizarre need” to verify white supremacists.

Tom Cruise has a new wingman. The role of Goose’s son in Top Gun: Maverick was being chased by many young actors, many of whom even traveled to Cruise’s home in Clearwater, Florida for the testing process. And the winner is: Miles Teller. Sigh. I can see how Cruise would be attracted to his try-hardness, but how the heck this this not go to Glen Powell? I finally watched Netflix’s Set It Up this weekend and the guy is a charm bomb. At least he has a sense of humour about losing the role.

-Sony meant to upload the red-band trailer for Khali the Killer on YouTube this morning — and they accidentally uploaded the entire movie. It was up for 8 hours before they noticed.

-This Twitter thread about a couple meeting on an airplane had me riveted!

-I’m loving that Amy Adams‘ new HBO show Sharp Objects is getting raves.

Kevin Spacey is now under investigation for three more sexual-assault claims in London. Meanwhile, Guy Pearce says Spacey was “handsy” on the set of L.A. Confidential. “Amazing actor; incredible actor. Mmm. Slightly difficult time with Kevin, yeah…He’s a handsy guy. Thankfully I was 29, and not 14.”

Harvey Weinstein was indicted on three additional felony sex charges, two of which carry the potential of life in prison.

-In The Cut’s July cover story, Marisa Tomei talks the patriarchy and Weinstein. “One of the best things about this moment is that actresses are talking to each other.”

-Amber Tamblyn has been a very problematic leader of Me Too (her tweets about Maxine Waters scream “white feminist”). In a new THR interview, she talks about David Cross (her problematic husband). “If you care about my voice and what I have to say at all and you think you know me, then you better assume that I’m having really difficult conversations with my husband about it.”

Roseanne Barr is already plotting her return to TV because of course.

-Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson wrote a moving op-ed about self harming herself as a teen and how she copes now.

-On a French talk show, Jean-Claude Van Damme reportedly suggested a woman’s role was to take care of the kids while men went out to work, and dismissed gay marriage. I don’t know who that co-panelist is who clapped back at him, but I think I love her.

Yvette Nicole Brown has been tapped to moderate The Walking Dead panels at Comic Con in place of Chris Hardwick.  This makes a lot of sense; she’s a frequent guest on his aftershow.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is having some issues with TWD fans who don’t seem to understand boundaries.

-I’m a couple of weeks late to the party but have y’all watched Hannah Gadsby‘s Netflix comedy special Nanette? She talks mental illness, sexual abuse and the Me Too movement. It starts out funny/topical and then she gradually gets into why she’s quitting comedy and it’s a total gut punch. I can’t stop thinking about this clip, in which she rails against Picasso for having an affair with a 17-year-old girl because he said “she was in her prime.” Once she gets into her abusive past, I was sobbing. This should be required watching.

Scarlett Johansson and her Ghost in the Shell director are reuniting for another problematic movie. Her response to the backlash is shockingly tone deaf: “Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman’s reps for comment.”  First of all, Huffman made Transamerica in 2006; the world has changed since then. And who in their right mind would compare themselves to Leto or Tambor these days?! I mean, invoking a guy who was fired for harassing trans actors is probably not your best justification for playing a trans character, ScarJo.

Adam Sandler crashed a wedding photo shoot in Montreal wearing a T-shirt and gym shorts.

Cheryl Cole denied rumors that her mother was behind he recent split from Liam Payne.

-The first trailer for Patty Jenkins‘ mysterious TNT series has finally been revealed, and it stars the best Chris.
