Ansel Elgort Gets Naked for Charity

Ansel Elgort trended today because he posted a nude photo to Instagram with the caption “OnlyFans link in bio”, but instead of sending people to a paid porn site, the link goes to a GoFundMe page for buying meals for Brooklyn hospital staff. That’s both cringingly thirsty and kind of clever.

-Congrats to the internet’s favourite celebrity couple Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith, who welcomed their new baby girl.

J.Lo and A-Rod are trying to buy the New York Mets. That’s one way to combat self-isolation boredom, I guess.

Tiffany Haddish was on Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Red Table Talk and got blunt about what she’s looking for in a guy — and it isn’t what you think: “I prefer small penises because I feel like small ones respect you. They’re kind. They buy you nice gifts. They take you nice places. They’ll come and clean your house; fix your cars for you. Small penises are penises of service. Big penises just do whatever they want to do.”

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post on COVID-19, animal welfare and wet markets.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated the Queen’s 94th birthday with a video call with her and Baby Archie.

-I don’t really know much of Rafe Spall besides the fact that he’s that guy from Life of Pi and Just Mercy, but goodness this is a great interview. On losing weight for roles, he said “I understand it, but you’ve got to be very careful with peddling the basic idea that being thin is happy and being fat is unhappy because all my problems are the same, regardless of the size of my waistline… When I’m extremely disciplined and not eating anything my wife doesn’t find me attractive – what she finds attractive is eating together and the sensuality of food. Look, eating nothing but fish and salad for 12 weeks is the opposite of sex.”

-I’m assuming this live tweet of Anna Kendrick‘s sex doll show on Quibi is far more entertaining than the show could ever be.

Andie Macdowell and her daughters Rainey and Margaret Qualley wanted to go to a closed park so badly, they crawled under a fence to get in. Tom Brady also tried to work out in a closed park. Celebrities, “closed” signs apply to you too!

Rainn Wilson had his Office costar Jenna Fisher on Instagram Live, and she showed off her Dundee Awards.

Jimmy Fallon quizzed costars Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer on which one knows more about the other. Spoiler alert: it didn’t go well.

Kate Hudson celebrated her 41st birthday with a social distancing party.

Kate Beckinsale isn’t taking any criticism about the age gap between her and Goody Grace.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back at it in the Trip to Greece trailer.

Aubrey Plaza Ignored Chris Pratt’s Advice

-While I hate the granny panty/diaper they put her in on the cover, Aubrey Plaza looks adorable in the inner pages of Cosmo. (This REDValentino dress is my fave.) In the interview, she talks about advice she got from her Parks and Rec costars (“Chris Pratt used to tell me when he would give me advice: ‘The separation is in the preparation.’ He’s one of those people who’s always very prepared. I was kind of the opposite. Clearly, it worked out for him”), and creating her own projects (“I’m so used to relying on this patriarchal idea of waiting around for someone to say, ‘You’—some brilliant man. I still have that voice inside my head that wants that. But it’s like, I’m 34. I can do it myself…I’m sick of doing other people’s shit. I want to do my own shit”).

-Speaking of great photoshoots, I love the Iris van Herpen dress Zoe Kravitz wears in British Vogue.

-Forbes estimates Rihanna is the richest woman in music with a reported net worth of $600 million thanks to her music and Fenty Beauty.

-The Jonas Brothers have a new documentary, where they talk about their purity ring past. Joe says of the virginity symbols: “That was not who we were. It was just something that we did when we were young kids but we wore the rings through the first bit of the band starting to explode, at that point it was already too late because it was in the media.”

Lady Rose Cholmondeley (aka the woman at the centre of all those Prince William rumours) attended the State Banquet last night, but while her husband got to walk in with the procession that included the Queen, the Trumps, etc. she did not.

Christoph Waltz and Wallace Shawn have joined the cast of the next Woody Allen film, and as much as I hate cancel culture we might need to evoke it now for these two. (Allen’s already long cancelled, obvs.)

-Who says spoilers are harmful? After the end of James Holzhauer‘s winning streak was leaked, last night’s Jeopardy was the most watched episode in 14 years.

Jon Hamm is incredibly charming in this interview clip with David Tennant. His little smirk at the camera after his says “always add an extra 1/2 inch.” 🤣

-The season of appreciating Keanu Reeves continues. I hope it never ends!

Busy Philipps testified today in front of the House Judiciary Committee about abortion rights. “It is my body. Not the state’s.”

-The first trailer for Luce teases a mind-bending psychological thriller starring Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer and Tim Roth.

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Golden Globes

 

The stars came out to honour the best in TV and film at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Unlike last year, when most celebs wore black in support of Time’s Up, this year’s red carpet was a sea of colour. White and tulle were the biggest themes, but the dresses we loved most had a bit more edge. Check out our picks for the best and worst looks of the night:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: Nicole Kidman looks like liquid sex in this slinky blood red merlot dress by Michael Kors. Nicole and I are fighting over the black hair bow (I hate it, she loves it) but this dress is an undeniable winner.

 

Nicole: Holy merde, Regina King came to win tonight! She is by far my best dressed in a glowing blush gown by Alberta Ferretti that shines on the carpet. So very beautiful with simple accessories and unfussy hair. The whole look is stunning.

 

Jen: Crazy Rich Asians star Gemma Chan brings high fashion to the red carpet in this gorg Maison Valentino Couture creation. And are those shorts underneath there?? Marry me.

 

Nicole: Taraji P Henson in a plunging velvet custom Vera Wang completely makes up for the Giambattista Valli disaster from last year’s Emmys. She looked absolutely amazing in this head to toe sleek look.

 

Jen: Lupita Nyong’o is radiant in blue sequined Calvin Klein. I love the unique neckline and the way it moves on camera.

 

Nicole: Fleabag and Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge is gorgeous in a red sequinned custom gown by Galvan London that fits perfectly. She lets the dress do all the work, keeping the rest of her look very simple. This is movie star style and I’m just tickled that she’s there for writing.

 

Jen: Keri Russell deserves to take home the hardware for her stellar performance on the final season of The Americans, but she already looks like a winner in this Grecian-inspired metallic Monique Lhuillier.

 

Nicole: I love Octavia Spencer‘s tea-length gown from Cristian Siriano. It’s supremely flattering and a different silhouette than we see elsewhere on the carpet.

 

Jen: I’m sure it’s going to end up on a bunch of worst lists, but I actually really dig this look on Julia Roberts. Her ethereal Stella McCartney top and crisp black pants make her look cool and relaxed AF.

 

Nicole: Thandie Newton is pure sexiness in this mirrored Michael Kors gown that shows glimpses of skin and clings to every curve. Like a lot of looks I love tonight, the dress does all the work and the really simple gorgeous hair pulls it all together.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Nicole: Oh boy, I wish that Julianne Moore would go back to letting her pal Tom Ford dress her because Givenchy is not working for her. This is an absurd dress that tries to be too many things and ends up looking boxy and dowdy. Boo.

 

Jen: As soon as we saw Claire Foy’s Miu Miu gown, Nicole said that it reminded her of that scene in The Proposal when Sandra Bullock tries on the wedding dress and her boobs disappear. That about sums this up.

 

Nicole: What the actual hell, Alison Brie? How on earth did Taraji and Allison’s dresses come out of the same brain? Can I even call Allison’s outfit a gown? It looks like a bikini top under a sheer cover. Hard nope.

 

Jen: Lady Gaga is out of the shallows and off the deep end in blue Valentino. I get that it’s an homage to Judy Garland but the arms are ridiculous and there’s so much fabric on the train that it looks like she’s dragging curtains behind her.

 

Nicole: Jen and I actually fought over who got to pick Emily Blunt in Alexander McQueen as our best dressed until we saw the mess at the bottom of the gown. Why oh why couldn’t it be a simple column!? So close.

 

Jen: I adore Constance Wu and I want so much more for her than this underwhelming Vera Wang. The colour makes it look like support wear, and tulle is nobody’s friend.

 

Nicole: I’m all for simple tonight but man, Amy Adams is too austere in her teal Calvin Klein. She needs lipstick and a necklace, maybe a bow? Let’s get Tom Ford to dress her from now on, too!

 

Jen: The Good Place’s D’Arcy Carden is trapped in the bad place with this terrible gown. Puckered seams, unflattering colour, clashing straps. What is this??
