Blake Lively Draws Louboutins Onto Her Feet

Blake Lively badly photoshopping a pair of shoes onto her feet is the content I needed today. She posted “@louboutinworld are you hiring? Barefoot iPhone doodler with vast experience avail.”

-Oh goodie. Now Josh Brolin has weighed in on Chris Pratt, complaining about the “global hate hand job” everyone’s giving his costar. Why won’t they stop?

-Just in case you thought 2020 couldn’t get weirder, Daniel Kaluuya confirmed his live-action Barney movie is really happening and it will be darker than the OG TV show. “Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won’t you say you love me too?’ That’s one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn’t true?”

Matthew McConaughey says he was sexually abused as a teenager in his new memoir Greenlights, writing “I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15. I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex. Today, I am merely certain that I hope that’s not the case.” He also mentions an incident when he was “molested by a man when I was 18 while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.” Still, he remained an optimist. “I’ve never felt like a victim. I have a lot of proof that the world is conspiring to make me happy.”

Justin Bieber says he’s not slowing down his support of Black Lives Matter. “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American. [W]hat I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine [a] light on racism.”

Dominic West‘s wife has gone to Ireland on a “work trip.” Uh huh.

Miranda Lambert‘s new music video has a surprising costar: her husband’s abs.

-I have no interest in ever watching another movie based on a video game again, but Tom Holland is sure working that henley in the first photo from Uncharted.

Lake Bell and Scott Campbell have called it quits after 7 years of marriage.

-The 100 showrunner is now blaming his much-maligned final season on the network, saying the head of the CW told him to make the show darker. Did he also tell him to kill off beloved characters in throwaway scenes that made zero sense?

Kristen Bell will star in and exec produce in Netflix’s The Woman in the House, a thriller series about a woman nursing a broken heart who possibly witnesses her neighbor murder someone.

Noah Cyrus wore a sheer bodysuit (ala Britney in the “Toxic” video) to the CMTs. That went over about as well as you’d expect.

-The cover of Cicely Tyson’s memoir is stunning. It’s a portrait taken by Lord Snowden.

-CBS’ and Trump have been in a pissing contest all day that includes a lot of early clip releases from his 60 Minutes interview that’s airing Sunday.

-The more we hear about the Synder cut, the more it’s clear that this thing never actually existed.

-Wait, so Netflix has reportedly renewed Steve Carell’s Space Force but keeps cancelling shows people actually like? WTF?

-The trailer for the Netflix film The Prom has dropped, starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and James Corden. How many times am I going to get sucked into watching a Ryan Murphy joint and instantly regret it? At least one more, apparently.

Zendaya Is Stunning In InStyle

zendaya instyle september 2020

Zendaya covers the September issue of InStyle, styled by Law Roach and wearing Pyer Moss, Hanifa, Romeo Hunte and Christopher John Rogers. Roach said he only used clothing, shoes and jewels from black designers for the shoot.

In the story, Zendaya talks to Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors about her activism. “I’m an actress, but I’m also just a person who has a heart and wants to do the right thing.”

-Zendaya’s rumoured boyfriend Jacob Elordi is interviewed in Variety, and talked about not yet seeing Kissing Booth 2, and the attention surrounding Deep Water costars Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas (“I feel so bad for them. Let them walk their bloody dog”).

-E! News is reporting that Jennifer Garner has split from John Miller after almost 2 years together. In (possibly related?) other news, she was spotted hanging out with Alias costar Bradley Cooper and his daughter on a beach in Malibu. (This is a much better rumour than the one about Bradley dating Anna Wintour, which is somehow circulating again.)

-Meanwhile, Bradley was spotted grabbing dinner with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.

-In a clip for the new season of Selling Sunset, Chrishell Stause reveals This Is Us star Justin Hartley told her via text that he had filed for divorce. “I found out because he texted me that we were filed. Forty-five minutes later, the world knew … I talked to him right after ‘cause I thought that must be a joke, but that was kind of the end of the communication.”

Jason Momoa had wife Lisa Bonet‘s old Mustang restored. I can’t tell if this is just an elaborate ad for Ford or not, but it’s sweet enough that I can’t seem to bring myself to care.

George and Amal Clooney have donated $100k to Lebanese charities helping provide aid in Beirut.

-I’m very bummed that High Fidelity starring Zoe Kravitz has been canceled after just one season.

-Three of Bon Appétit’s Test Kitchen stars of color are departing the video channel after failed contract negotiations. Priya Krishna, Rick Martinez, and Sohla El-Waylly will no longer be in Test Kitchen videos, they announced on Instagram. How do you have a very public reckoning with how your treat your non-white employees, and STILL try to lowball them? Krishna mentioned in her statement: “Some of my colleagues in the test kitchen have been publicly supportive but privately complicit, even helping to interview BIPOC video candidates they know will be underpaid.”

-Amazon has ordered a TV adaptation of A League of Their Own, co-created by and starring Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson. Great, now do Pitch!

Taylor Swift has confirmed that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively‘s daughter’s name is Betty, which I like a lot.

Keke Palmer is set to host the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards at the end of the month. I wish covid didn’t mess this up by making the show more subdued than it usually is, cause she deserves a big moment.

-Music producer Detail, who has worked with Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez, was arrested and charged with 15 counts of sexual assault and five additional felony assault-related charges.

Bella Hadid called out cops who weren’t wearing masks.

-It seems the racists can’t tolerate even mainstream darling Oprah finally calling out white privilege.

-This is a very good point about all of the celebrities who are posting support for Ellen Degeneres: their posts sound like they came from a digital media kit. The fact that so many of them reference exact amounts of what she’s contributed to charity is suspicious.

-The release date for Bill & Ted 3 has been moved again — this time up a week. Makes sense, as the following week is suddenly looking busy with Tenet and Mulan duking it out in what is sure to be a very closely watched battle pitting theatres vs streaming.

-A teaser is out for A24’s Zola, a thriller born from a Twitter thread about a Hooters waitress who meets a girl who asks if she wants to make some extra money stripping, and then they end up on a roadtrip to Florida that involves prostitution, pimps, a bipolar boyfriend, kidnapping, and murder. It is a master class in storytelling.

-Also, A24 correcting People’s headline about the teaser is priceless.

-As if she hasn’t given us enough with Black is King, Beyonce also posted three new photos today on Instagram.

Nicole Kidman, Bobby Cannavale and Melissa McCarthy are set to star in Hulu’s limited series Nine Perfect Strangers, which is based on Liane Moriarty’s latest book.

Nicole Kidman Reflects on Family and Fame

Nicole Kidman Tatler Bombshell

Nicole Kidman is kicking off the Bombshell promo tour with her Tatler cover story, in which she talks about the death of her father (“My three-year-old said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, y’know, you have to be OK. Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’’t going to fall apart. Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally”).

Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson that is narrated by a talking glove. I hate all of those words.

Sia went to Walmart and TJ Maxx yesterday and paid everyone’s bills, telling people her name was Cici and she’d recently won the lottery.

John Boyega remains a delight.

Seth Meyers had his parents and brother on the show and they seem wonderfully well-adjusted and normal.

Beck has distanced himself from Scientology, saying “My father has been a Scientologist for a long time. But I’ve pretty much just focused on my music and my work for most of my life, and tended to do my own thing.” Leah Remini, however, is not buying it: “You can’t be married to a Scientology family such as the Ribisi family and not be fully on board. To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”

Sandra Bullock was at Jennifer Aniston’s Friendsgiving, as was Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Justin Theroux.

Chrissy Teigen turned John Legend’s ‘Sexiest Man’ People cover into pajamas for everyone to wear at Thanksgiving and I think I’m in love with her.

Dakota Johnson continues to be the most awkward person ever in interviews.

-French director Luc Besson could be hit with a 10-month suspended prison sentence — and not for the reasons you’d think. He allegedly fired his assistant illegally when she was on medical leave.

-It’s been a rough week in K-pop. Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon have been sentenced to prison terms on charges of sexual assault.

-Another week, another celeb: Jane Fonda recruited Paul Scheer for today’s “Fire Drill Friday” protests.

-It’s Black Friday or, as gossip hounds know it, CDAN blind item reveal day.

-The E.T. short is cute. Yes, it’s a commercial, but it’s still cute.
