-This costume designer interview about an unnamed “famous actor” is so juicy. “The actress comes into the fitting room, we try this suit on, and she looks at it and decides that she hates the suit because the pinstripe on the fabric is too wide. The pinstripe is making her look fat.”

Based on an original story by Millie Bobby Brown and her sister Paige, Netflix is developing A Time Lost: a film about a feud between two families that comes to a head when one daughter is diagnosed with cancer. Anyone else just hoping that Millie gets to nap soon?

-Is Meryl Streep pulling a Scarlett Johansson? In Netflix’s upcoming film The Laundromat, which debuted at TIFF last night, director Steven Soderbergh has Streep playing a second character in disguise near the end of the film: a Panamanian office drone “wearing prosthetics and putting on a thick pan-Latin accent.” That sounds…problematic.

Kim Kardashian continues to insist it didn’t occur to her that naming her shapewear line Kimono would be offensive.

-This oral history of Vampire Diaries is kind of fascinating — mostly because no one wanted Paul Wesley to play Stefan.

Tessa Thompson Talks Times Up

Tessa Thompson Emma Thompson Men In Black

-In her Marie Claire cover, Tessa Thompson talks about living out everyone’s fantasy by having a spa day with Emma Thompson, and says #TimesUp “allowed me to say things I’m not sure I would have said a year ago. The truth is, the system where you assess international value is inherently sexist and racist because we haven’t had those opportunities. The only way to disrupt that is to create new models.” I love her so much, I can barely remember that she was once that kind of annoying character on Veronica Mars.

-Also, Tessa says Chris Hemsworth is “really sensitive” despite his fame and looks.

-Unfortunately, Tessa and Chris‘s new movie Men In Black isn’t getting great reviews.

-On a podcast with her former costars, Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev says she and Paul Wesleydespised each other” for the first half a season. Between this and the fact that her and Ian Somerhalder seemed to have negative chemistry after they broke up IRL, that set must have been a riot.

-What the hell is Drake doing??

-Welp. Jessica Biel is apparently lobbying California lawmakers alongside Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has some questionable opinions about vaccine.

Miley Cyrus used her anniversary post to shut down split rumours. She’s also apologized for a 2017 comment about not liking hip-hop anymore. “‘This pushed me out of the hip hop scene a little’ was insensitive as it is a privilege to have the ability to dip in and out of ‘the scene.'”

-Did everyone else but me know that Mariska Hargitay has been married to the hot guy from Younger for 15 years?!?

Keanu Reeves had no idea he’s been the internet’s latest boyfriend. “I’ve been what? I didn’t know that…That’s wacky. The positivity is great. It’s really special how [Always Be My Maybe and John Wick 3] have been embraced.”

-After hackers stole 18 hours of outtakes from Radiohead’s “OK Computer” sessions and held them for ranson, the group released them with proceeds going to charity.

Ariana Grande did good.

-I don’t think we need another season of Russian Doll because the first was perfect, but I said that about Big Little Lies and Barry, so what do I know?

-So Bradley Cooper‘s camp seems to be pushing the “he was too busy being an auteur” angle in the break up stories which is…a choice.

-There are two new novels I can’t wait to read this summer: Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s Fleishman Is in Trouble, and Linda Holmes‘ Evvie Drake Starts Over. So I’m thrilled to see excerpts have been released of both! Here’s the one from Fleishman, and here’s Evvie.

-Oh god, this documentary on the late Anton Yelchin is going to be heartbreaking.

TV’s Leading Ladies Talk Shop

Emilia Clarke, Michelle Williams, Patricia Arquette, Christine Baranski, Danai Gurira and Niecy Nash

-God, I love Emmy roundtable season! In THR’s new issue, drama actresses Emilia Clarke, Danai Gurira, Michelle Williams, Patricia Arquette, Christine Baranski and Niecy Nash gather to talk about pay parity, the pressure to look a certain way, and standing up for their characters. (I particularly liked this bit from Gurira: “I remember having an argument with the director [on Walking Dead] because I was like, ‘I know you have [this love scene] written here like this, but this is what you’re getting.’And I wrote it on the script and I handed it to him.”)

Nina Dobrev and screenwriter/director Grant Mello look blissed up in love in Cannes. I’m happy for her — she seemed to be going through it for a bit.

-A judge ordered Hayden Panettiere’s boyfriend Brian Hickerson to stay away from her after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge earlier this month.

-ABC’s live revival of classic Norman Lear sitcoms last night was weird and wonderful. I didn’t catch the whole thing but I did see Jennifer Hudson doing The Jefferson’s theme song, and Jamie Foxx‘s hilarious break in character.

Gabrielle Union says she’s coaching hubby Dwayne Wade on basic life skills now that he’s retired from basketball. “He’s like, ‘What is this place? There’s all kind of like khaki shorts and cargo shorts and there’s all different colors.’ I’m like, ‘That’s Old Navy’…He has no idea how much milk costs. He’s like, ‘What is that, $20?’ and I’m like, ‘What kind of goat’s blood milk [are you drinking]?'”

-Warner’s upcoming streaming service just landed Anna Kendrick to star in a romcom series.  Great, yet another subscription!

Lena Waithe did an amazing job last night guest-hosting for Kimmel, but everyone’s talking about the smooch Halle Berry laid on her which I found…weird. Isn’t it a little queerbaiting? Doesn’t Lena have a fiancée?

-Huh. ABC cancelled Whiskey Cavalier a couple of weeks ago, but fan outcry (and a bump in ratings) has them reconsidering the decision, with sources saying it’s now got a 50/50 shot at coming back.

-The Good Place creator Mike Schur hasn’t given any interviews about the most recent season — until now.

-A bunch of media sites jumped the gun this morning and broke the embargo for the new Star Trek: Picard first teaser trailer, so CBS pulled it. But it’s back online now. Showing Picard (now an admiral after quitting Starfleet dues to events 15 years prior) at his winery.
