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?!?

Jon Stewart choked up while testifying during the hearing for reauthorizing the 9/11 victim compensation fund. “What an incredible metaphor this room is. … Behind me, a filled room of 9/11 first responders, and in front of me, a nearly empty Congress.”

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.

-Netflix says Ava DuVernay‘s miniseries on the Central Park Five, When They See Us, has been the most-watched series on the service in the U.S. every day since it debuted on May 31.

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.

-I have been following this guy’s tweets for a month now and they are a consistent source of delight! His mom recently passed away and when he looked at her Kindle he was surprised to find it filled thousands of verryyyyy risque romance novels — which he is now reading and reviewing on Twitter.

-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.

-The first official trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate has arrived. Linda Hamilton is still fierce.

 

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Once Stormed Off View Set After Being Reprimanded by Barbara Walters

-New audio from The View reveals that Elisabeth Hasselbeck once threatened to quit the show during a commercial break after a fight with Barbara Walters over the morning after pill. “What the f**k! I don’t even swear. She has me swearing. This woman is driving me nuts. I’m not going back. I can’t do the show like this. She just reprimanded me, and she knew exactly what she was doing. Goodbye! I’m off. Write about that in the New York F**KING Post!”

-The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss tells Marie Claire that’s she’s dating someone, but won’t say who. “I learned you just don’t talk about it. Who really gives a s**t whether or not I’m dating anyone? I hate to put that importance on it. I cringe a little.”

Nina Dobrev crushes Zac Efron at the gym in his new YouTube video. (Why does he work out in Cons?!)

-I love that Reese Witherspoon badly photoshopped Zoe Kravitz into her pic from the Big Little Liars set.

-This thread on how only male reviewers seem to think that Captain Marvel has no character arc is so, so good.

-Fleabag’s current season will be its last. With the end of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and You’re The Worst this week, Broad City last week, and Jane the Virgin this summer, we’re seriously losing a lot of amazing, female-driven shows with messy protagonists.

-Does anyone else think the rumours about Fergie and Prince Andrew getting back together could just be a distraction from the juicier royal rumours circulating this week?

Judi Dench getting caught in a lie about never going to nightclubs is delightful.

-Are Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson‘s camps trying to prep us for imminent engagement news?

Charlize Theron isn’t just single, she’s “shockingly available.” (Her words.)

Samantha Bee slammed anti-vaxxers — and used a Riverdale spoof to do it.

Beyonce just signed a deal with Adias after reportedly walking out of meeting with Reebok due to a lack of diversity on their team.

Holland Taylor is playing Stormy in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel and this is straight out of my fantasy casting.

-Speaking of fantasy casting, Kumail Nanjiani is in talks to join Angelina Jolie in The Eternals. Get that Marvel money, Kumail!

-Every time Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak hang out in public I get so hopeful!

-The reviews for Fosse/Verdon are very mixed. I’m still going to check it out.

Laura Dern seeks justice for a stranger in the Trial by Fire trailer.
