-Speaking of Jake Gyllenhaal, he’s reportedly dating a 22-year-old model. Sure.

-Wait, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had two more wedding receptions this week? Is this just their life now?

-An old video of Chris Rock, Louis CK and Ricky Gervais freely talking about using the n-word on stage has resurfaced, and people are not happy. (Jerry Seinfeld was also part of the conversation, but acquitted himself well by seeming uncomfortable and refusing to repeat the word: “You’ve found the humour of it. I haven’t found it, nor do I seek it.”)

-On the Tonight Show, Felicity Jones attempted some Beyonce moves and it went better than you’d expect.

Kristen Stewart might have a new girlfriend.

-Uh, did Jessica Mulroney just offer the Daily Mail a look inside her Toronto home? Being Meghan Markle‘s BFF sure is working out for her.

Dylan O’Brien and Britt Robertson, who’ve been dating since 2012, have reportedly split.

Demi Lovato took to Twitter to deny the “sources” of a recent tabloid story about her recovery. She added: “Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.. but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal.”

Colin Farrell used a recent talk show appearance to shine a spotlight on his friend who’s suffering from Epidermolysis bullosa.

-This is an interesting interview with showrunners over the need for Hollywood to learn how to handle sex scenes better. This is a side effect of peak TV: a bunch of writers/directors are now running TV shows who have no idea deal with people management.

Sandra Bullock‘s new Netflix movie Bird Box isn’t getting great reviews.  According to my Twitter feed, people don’t seem to care.

-This is a good piece about feeling alienated from a lot of the “girl power” messaging at the movies and TV this year. I follow an academic on Twitter who’s summed this phenomenon up perfectly: plastic representation.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Never-ending Wedding

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Wedding

-If you thought you already knew everything about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding — you’d probably be right. But they’re still on the new cover of People and all over Hello!’s social media. Good for them for wringing every last cent from the festivities, I guess.

-Meanwhile, this tongue-in-cheek deep-dive into the validity of their relationship is hilarious. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December the 2, and I’ll tell you why I think so.”

-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer looks amazing on the cover of Wonderland. I hope she becomes a huge star.

-Great forking news: The Good Place just got an early renewal for season 4, so maybe 2018 isn’t a total garbage fire.

-GQ interviewed a bunch of people about the late Anthony Bourdain and collected their stories, and goddammit the resulting article made me weepy. “He turned to Tony and said, ‘How far can you keep going? Where else can you go? You can’t go to the moon!’ And Tony goes, ‘Really? Why not? I’ll go to the moon and make an episode on the moon. I’ll go anywhere.'”

-The CW is developing a Jane The Virgin spin-off series that will be written by long-time show writer Valentina Garza and will involve Gina Rodriguez.

Kayne West apologized after being caught on his phone at Cher‘s Broadway show. (This is in no way an excuse, but apparently the show is really, really bad.)

-Wait, Demi Moore allegedly has a secret girlfriend? I can’t believe I missed this until now!

-Netflix will reportedly pay WarnerMedia $100M in 2019 to continue streaming Friends (up from $30M). This is NUTS — especially because it will soon be available on another streaming site next year.

-BBC just announced that Luther will air on New Year’s Day. Perfect hangover cure!

-The big guns came out for Ryan Murphy’s Walk of Fame star ceremony, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson.

-The Actors on Actors interviews always result in some interesting pairings. The latest has Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone talking about dealing with rejection, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o discussing women in Hollywood, Charlize Theron and Michael B Jordan talking about the impact of Black Panther, and Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda talking about writing Shallow.

-Variety’s list of 10 directors to watch for 2019 includes 6 women.

-People are loving the new Captain Marvel trailer. (Though I’m not quite sure why people are calling it a “course correction” because I loved the first trailer too.)

Lindsay Lohan Is Ready For Her Comeback

-There was a lot of talk last week about how that Amanda Bynes comeback profile glossed over or straight up ignored her worst behaviour, but the new Lindsay Lohan feature in Paper won’t be accused of that. It brings up her past (despite Lohan’s attempts to steer clear of certain topics) and reveals that she’s still a bit of a mess (making the interviewer wait until the 9-hour photo shoot is over and then still not talking to her, responding to questions about that encounter with “Syrian refugees” only through email via her rep, etc).

-Meanwhile, here’s the first trailer for Lindsay Lohan‘s new MTV reality show.  I wish her well, but I just can’t.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra‘s wedding looked amazing. They even had their own Bollywood dance number!

-As Camping ends with a whimper, Lena Dunham is being pretty blunt about her experience on the HBO show: “I’ve sort of had it with trying to be anyone else’s voice — I tried that and it was complicated and it didn’t necessarily work and it caused a lot of pain, so the only thing I can really do is be my voice.”

Pete Davidson says he’s been “getting online bullied and in public for 9 months.” Ok.

Chris Noth is not here for all the rumours about the Sex and the City 3 movie script, particularly the one about Mr Big dying of a heart attack: “There’s no way he was dying. That was all a lie.” He added, “There’s no drama, there’s no movie, there’s nothing going on with it, it’s over, it’s gone.”

Piers Morgan getting owned by 92-year-old Dick Van Dyke on Twitter is a pretty great way to start the week.

-Lifetime’s You starring Penn Badgley is moving to Netflix for season 2 (Netflix Canada is getting season 1 at some point this month).

-This video of Kelly Clarkson meeting Cher on a red carpet this weekend will make you melt.

-Rumours of a reboot of The Office just got a lot more credible thanks to this photo a cast member tweeted this weekend.

Hannah Lux Davis talks about directing “thank u, next”: “If you’re Ariana Grande, you can talk to anybody and they will take your call [Laughs]. I think Ariana was just like, ‘yo, what if we got Kris Jenner?’ And she got her!”

-There were rumours that Friends was leaving Netflix in January but it seems like it’s sticking around for a bit longer. It’s going to be a big deal if/when they lose the streaming rights to that show. Netflix doesn’t release ratings but there’s rumours that it is the most watched/rewatched show on the site — by A LOT.

-I didn’t even watch all of Daredevil but this interview with a writer on what it was like when they found out Netflix cancelled them is a real bummer.

-This is a great column on the work still needed to be done in this #MeToo era.

-The British Independant Film Awards took place this weekend, and everyone looked (mostly) lovely.

-This oral history of Working Girl in honour of its 30th anniversary is juicy fun. Melanie Griffith talks about trying to seduce Alec Baldwin, and the cast reflects on Kevin Spacey‘s creepy character.

-Here comes the Jameela Jamil backlash, right on schedule.

Anna Paquin plays a superstar publicist in the Flack trailer.
