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.

-In a nice change of pace, Tom Hanks read some nice tweets.

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.

-Here’s video of Jennifer Garner losing her poo when Julie Andrews called her.

-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.

When Mariah Met Mellie

Millie Bobby Brown got to meet Mariah Carey. (Seriously though, every picture of MBB lately makes me double take. She looks so different and I can’t figure out what it is.)

-This might be the most cringe-worthy segment the Ellen Show has ever aired: Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and Ellen Degeneres debated which celeb male Charlize Theron should date, all while Charlize looked like she wanted to murder everyone in the room who was allowing this to happen. AND THEN they showed a photo of Kidman’s ex Lenny Kravitz and suddenly everyone had murder eyes.

-The Taylor Swift vs Scooter Braun feud kicked into high gear last night, went Swift took to social media to accuse Braun and her former label of blocking her from playing her old songs at next weekend’s American Music Awards. Her not having control over the songs that she wrote? Not cool. Her siccing her legion of fans on anyone who disagrees with her? Also not cool. This whole situation is a not cool fest…

-The Actors on Actors interviews continue to roll out. Today’s participants: Charlize Theron and Adam Driver, and Tom Hanks and Renée Zellweger.

-Survivor’s Elizabeth and Missy have apologized for their actions on this week’s episode: “Sexual harassment and sexual assault are extremely serious, life altering topics that I do not take lightly. They have no business being used as tactics to further one’s own agenda, whether it be in real life or in the game of Survivor.”

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are quickly turning into my fave celeb couple.

-Quibi (the short form video platform) isn’t expected to launch until next year, but it continues to reel in stars. Bill Murray has signed on to star in a Peter Farrelly comedy series, Will Arnett is going to host a comedy series, the Russo Brothers are creating a Marvel vs DC docu-series, and there’s a Varsity Blues revival.

Lauryn Hill just dropped her first new solo song in five years.

-This is a great look at how Kelly Clarkson pulls off all those covers on her talk show.

-Congrats to Lena Waithe, who revealed that she secretly married her fiancée, Alana Mayo, at a courthouse in San Francisco.

GOOP’s holiday gift guide is fully of goopy ridiculousness.

Mo’Nique is taking Netflix to court for pay discrimination.

-Actress-turned-influencer Eva Amurri, who is currently pregnant, announced her and her husband have split.

This piece is the best thing I’ve read about The Morning Show so far — especially if you’re a Jennifer Aniston scholar.

-I’m just catching up on the controversy about The Social and I don’t really get the uproar? Yeah, Jess‘ comments about hockey players being bullies is subjective (though she did clearly say it was based on her experience), but everything else is pretty undeniable, no? Hockey is played by predominantly white dudes, and it’s really expensive to put your kids in it so it’s mostly dominated by families with a lot of disposable income and time.

-Holy crap, Sesame Street just did a Succession spoof starring Brian Cox and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted.

Sandra Oh Celebrates Korean Designers

sandra oh porter magazine

-This Sandra Oh fashion shoot in Porter magazine is fabulous and just what we need to kick off the weekend. (The interview is fire, too.)

Pete Davidson and Margaret Qualley have reportedly called it quits. But they didn’t even get around to regrettable matching tattoos yet!

This video of Paul Rudd demonstrating how he takes pictures of celebrities in a way that makes it look like a butt is hovering over them is possibly the best thing I’ve ever seen.

-Grace and Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Sam Waterston were arrested this afternoon in DC during a climate change protest.

-This documentary clip of Meghan Markle getting emotional about her negative press hit me right in the heart guts. “Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m ok.”

Christina Hendricks announced her split from husband Geoffrey Arend. He got 10 years of marriage out of her, which is about 9.5 more than most of us predicted.

-I love Paul Feig, and this interview cements it. He says of all of his films having female leads: “I was an only child. I grew up next to a family of eight kids, six of whom were girls. I liked the humour of joking around with my female friends because male humour devolves, eventually, into homophobia, punching and name-calling. I’d rather just have goofy fun.”

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston recreated one of their most memorable scenes together from Friends, and it was all kinds of great.

-This lip sync video with Penn Badgley is incredibly hot. (I once saw him on a dance floor with Zoe Kravitz and I thought they were going to make the whole place spontaneously combust.)

-I finally got around to watching the Succession season finale. Are people seriously creating conspiracy theories about that end shot? Even Brian Cox doesn’t buy it. It was more like — game recognize game.

Jennifer Lopez was spotted wearing a wedding dress on the set of her new movie and … is it supposed to fit like that?

-Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will no longer be being released as planned in China because Quentin Tarantino refuses to trim scenes of violence or the one that featured Bruce Lee sparring with Brad Pitt’s stuntman character. Which — and I have never said this before and likely won’t again but — good for Quentin Tarantino.

-Here’s the trailer for Bombshell, starring Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.
