Tom Holland Steps Up to Help Fan

-Not all heroes wear capes; some wear tights. Tom Holland protected a fan when pro autograph hunters and the paps got too pushy. “It’s okay I got you I got you,” is very sweet.

-Also, Tom told an adorable story about how he tried to work out with Jake Gyellenhaal and it didn’t end well for him.

I’m devastated to find out in the last few days.That he was living a double life. He used to joke about other players who had girlfriends down the street in apartments close to their wives. He called those men monsters. ? But this is worse. He lied to all. How is it possible to control 2 women’s hearts and minds like this”

Michael B. Jordan talking about which animes make him cry is too real.

-With her hair curly like this, Mariah Carey looks like she time-traveled back to her Butterfly days. I mean, the Benjamin Button-ing might be the result of other stuff but I prefer to assume it’s solely based on her hair.

-Ryan Murphy’s first big Netflix project will be a feature adaptation of the Tony-nominated stage musical The Prom, starring Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman and Ariana Grande, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key and Andrew Rannells.

-Speaking of big gets for Netflix, George Clooney is set to direct and star in a movie for them. (Real talk: can you believe that George produced and starred in a TV show last month and it didn’t even make a ripple on the pop culture radar? 2019 is wild, y’all.)

-It’s not all good news for the streamer. Netflix just lost rights to The Office, which will being streaming exclusively on NBCUniversal’s service in 2021. So it begins.

-I like this list of the best TV moments of the year so far. They get bonus points for including the Hot Priest’s “love is awful” speech.

She defended Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey‘s work: “Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [the London theater where Spacey served as artistic director] and everything that he did – how wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?” Sure, she can appreciate their past work but maybe let’s not forget the alleged hell they put others through when they were doing said work.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Talks Fleabag

phoebe waller bridge gq

-It’s a banner day for us Phoebe Waller-Bridge fans. Tina Fey interviewed her for British GQ, where she talked about the critical reception to Fleabag (“The British press were like, [it’s] is the filthiest, most overly exposed, sexually exposing show ever.’ They made out like I was naked the whole way through. I was like, ‘There is not a moment of nudity in the series.’ I just say stuff about my asshole straight down the barrel. I think that makes people feel so naked, but the language was more naked than the actual performance.”)

Waller-Bridge is also on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s comedy actress issue, alongside Tiffany Haddish, Jane Fonda, Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, Alex Borstein and Regina Hall. She talks about why she loves writing Fleabag: “I write women who don’t give a shit because I am teaching myself how to be one. I just feel such a catharsis when I turn to the camera and just say that f**king line and it’s just such an amazing feeling. I’d like to be more like that.”

Prince Harry took a commercial flight and his fellow passengers couldn’t help but sneak pics of him.

-This makes a lot of sense: CBS announced it will air season 1 of CBS All Access’ The Good Fight this summer, beginning June 16. While I think season 2 is better, this whole show is so, so good!

-I was scared to see Alex Trebek‘s name trending earlier today, but it’s good news! A few months after revealing he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he says he’s “near remission,” telling People: “It’s kind of mind-boggling … The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory … some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”

Laura Dern just graced us with this perfect IG post and the world doesn’t deserve her.

Ashton Kutcher testified today in the murder trial for the man accused of killing his friend, Ashley Ellerin. The actor testified that he went to Ellerin’s house the night she was murdered to pick her up for drinks, but there was no answer so he assumed she wasn’t home. He said when he looked in her window, he saw what he thought were red wine stains on her carpet.

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix might be engaged.

-This video of Will Smith talking to kids at the Aladdin premiere is all kinds of precious.

-While doing press for Avu DuVernay‘s new Netflix series When They See Us, Joshua Jackson talked about confronting his blind spots as a white man. DuVernay praised his comments, tweeting: “When I first met with [him], I didn’t know what to expect. Certainly not THIS. Had never had a convo like that with a white actor. He surprised me in the most unexpected, beautiful way.”

-When They See Us star Aurora Perrineau talked to Glamour about the series, as well as that apology she got from Lena Dunham, who initially didn’t believe Perrineau’s allegations that Girls writer and exec producer Murray Miller had assaulted her when she was 17.

Ultimately, everyone was well aware of Jason’s behavior and his multiple HR cases, including Lena [Waithe].” Meanwhile, show creator Waithe maintains that she was told of the actor’s alleged actions only after the first season wrapped. (Even if that’s the case, the show didn’t drop Mitchell until its current third season.)

-I really needed this video of Lil Nas X surprising elementary kids today.

-I really liked these details about the vocal-technique work Michelle Williams did to prepare for her performance in Fosse/Verdon. I definitely need to catch up on this show.

Ansel Elgort posted 17 shirtless pics in a row on Insta, and everyone is very confused.

-Speaking of Ansel, the trailer for The Goldfinch, starring him, Nicole Kidman and Sarah Paulson, dropped today. That was one of those books I read because everyone kept gushing over it, but I found it a bit of a slog. But if you like long and very detailed passages about the art of woodworking, it’ll be your jam.

nicole-kidman-vanity-fair

-In her 10th time covering Vanity Fair, Nicole Kidman talks about her marriage to Keith Urban (“It’s extremely simple with what we want from each other and what we want from a relationship. Just peas in a pod in that regard”), her kids with Tom Cruise (Bella is married and lives in London, Conner is in music in Miami), and how Meryl Streep slipped seamlessly into Big Little Lies’ close-knit cast (“There are no men in our equation. I mean, there are, but they’re not on the group chat, let’s put it that way. [Meryl is] and she’s very funny”).

-Early reactions to Avengers: Endgame are super positive, especially the film’s last hour which will apparently get us all up in our feels.  Box office-wise, it’s tracking at $1B worldwide ticket sales in less than a week.

-13 Going on 30 came out 15 years ago today. Let’s celebrate by rewatching the best awkward dance scene everJennifer Garner’s post about the film, in which she celebrates her young costars, is very sweet. I also very much like this article on why it’s a better movie than Big. “‘Chick flicks’— as some like to call romance films that center on a woman—are never ‘refreshing’ or ‘poignant.’ Chick flicks, no matter how original they are, are ‘well-worn,’ ‘formulaic’ and ‘uninspired.’ Big gets to be on the American Film Institute’s list of funniest films of all time, while 13 Going on 30 gets dubbed a guilty pleasure.”

Whitney Davis, an exec who worked at CBS for 13 years before quitting in February, wrote a column in Variety about the network’s “white problem.” And yet on the same day CBS said that they’ve suspended their search for a new CEO ’cause clearly the current exec team is top notch.
