Harry Styles Fed the Fish

-God, could you imagine being a Harry Styles fan and finding out that while you out, your dad let him in and he wandered around your house leaving you cute notes? This sounds like the start of a rom-com.

-Speaking of rom-coms, someone made a rom-com trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor and I want to watch that version of the show.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost got married over the weekend, and they broke the news via Meals on Wheels’ Instagram with a plea to donate. Which I kind of love?

-Gem of a human Paul Rudd handed out cookies to people in the rain waiting in line to vote in Brooklyn.

-Halloween may be cancelled for many of us, but not for the famous ones. George Clooney and Rande Gerber have tricked out a Casamigos truck and will drop off booze to their pals.

-Well, well, well. A couple of days ago when Stephen Amell talked about getting covid despite how “safe” he’s been, I mentioned that I’ve noticed some non-safe looking activity on his and his friends’ social media. And now a source is telling Page Six that he hosted a birthday party for his wife in Palm Springs (which he presumably flew to from shooting Heels in Atlanta). One of his BFFs also announced she has it, as did his wife, who did an IG Live yesterday but claims she has no idea where she got it.

Karlie Kloss and husband Joshua Kushner are expecting their first child.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom sang a song about voting and it was cute. Very out of tune, but cute.

Nicole Kidman continues to sign onto TV shows and I love this for her. She’s star and produce Amazon’s Things I Know to Be True.

-Here’s the full trailer for the new season of The Crown, which sees Olivia Colman‘s Queen clash with Gillian Anderson‘s Margaret Thatcher.

-Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams leaves her sheltered life with her mom to hunt down her father’s killer in the Two Weeks To Live trailer.

Avengers’ Paul Rudd and Chris Evans Re-Assemble

-The latest Actors on Actors interview is out, and it’s with Paul Rudd and Chris Evans. Needless to say, if you want to be charmed for 43 minutes this is for you. The best part was watching Evans fanboy over Rudd, asking “Why don’t you age? Are you drinking baby blood?”, recalling making him dance on video the first day they met, and saying “you’re like sorbet. You’re a palate cleanser – an always welcome addition.”

Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund are not only still together, they’re having a baby!

Jodie Turner-Smith calling Joshua Jackson a daddy (because “I made him one”) is social media perfection.

-Citing her own “pervasive privilege,” Kristen Bell has announced she is leaving her role as a biracial character on the Apple TV+ animated series Central Park. I would love to know the timing of this and if she made the decision before or after Jenny Slate. (Also, it was only back in January where the Central Park creator strongly defended the casting during the TCAs.)

Naomi Campbell covers the new issue of Vogue Spain and says it’s the first time she’s been photographed by a black Photgrapher for vogue / condenast and it was a woman of color.

-I pity the poor PR person who has to clean up Chris D’Elia‘s latest mess. In a misguided effort to prove he’s not a creep, he released a bunch of emails — which make him sound like a creep.

Demi Lovato seems content and in love, and I’m so happy for her.

-She also just signed a new deal with YouTube for a docuseries following the last three years of her ups and downs.

-Netflix will premiere a new show on July 10 called Down to Earth With Zac Efron in which the actor “searches for healthy, sustainable ways to live.” This is a different show than his upcoming Quibi one called Killing Zac Efron — which sounds like the total opposite.

-I get what this Variety article on the Television Critic Awards’ history of picking white winners was trying to do, but I’m not sure “submitting a more consciously inclusive ballot” is the only answer. (People much smarter than I am are talking about this much better than I ever could.)

Lisa Rinna claims the Karens at QVC is trying to silence her political views.

Celine Dion released a Pride-themed playlist and it is as cheesy and fun as you’d expect.

The Dixie Chicks are changing their name: The trio is now called The Chicks.

Cardi B was trending today because people thought she was trashing other female artists on a fake account. “These people must think I’m a 15-year-old girl … Stop trying to make this fake s**t up… don’t make lies about me. it’s tiring. It’s annoying.”

-Normal People stars Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones are reuniting for a pair of comedic shorts for Ireland’s Comic Relief. It’ll be set 40 years in the future — though I’m not sure older versions is really what people want to see from these characters.

-Meanwhile, following the success of Normal People, Hulu has ordered an adaptation of Sally Rooney‘s other novel, Conversations with Friends — a book I liked a lot more.

Sharon Choi, best known as director Bong Joon-ho’s interpreter during last year’s award season, interviewed Sandra Oh about Killing Eve.

Blackfeet Boxing: Not Invisible tells the story of the Blackfeet Boxing Club, which was set up to teach young women of the Blackfeet Nation boxing and self-defense.

-The trailer for Muppets Now on Disney+ features RuPaul, Taye Diggs, Aubrey Plaza and Seth Rogen.

Gerard Butler tries to run from a comet in the Greenland trailer.

Prince Harry on Meghan Markle: “She’s the Same Woman I Fell in Love With”

-As the palace announced details of their new arrangement with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, he commented on it during his speech at a charity dinner last night, saying “I was born into this life, and it is a great honor to serve my country and the Queen. When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing. You’ve looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us.”

The Queen promised she was going to deliver a swift resolution to the situation — and she succeeded. The couple will remain HRH but will no longer use the titles, they’ll continue to work with their private patronages (but three of Harry’s military patronages will end, and he’ll no longer be the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador), and they’ll repay the $3 million taxpayer funds used to renovate Frogmore Cottage, which they will keep as their UK home base and start paying rent.  Also, they plan to revisit the arrangement in 2021, which means this is all reversable should they/he decide to return to royal roles.

Prince Harry was spotted at a London pub looking “happy” and “relaxed” in the days before the announcement.

-I don’t know about you, but I feel really icky about all the real-life shipping on my timeline surrounding those photos of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt meeting backstage at last night’s SAG Awards. Are we forgetting that he perpetuated the “sad, childless Jen” narrative (after allegedly leaving her for another woman)? Or that his last marriage ended when he did *something* on a plane so scary that the feds were called and he lost unsupervised access to his kids for years? Maybe he’s changed/evolved, but I still want less baggage for her.

-I also really, really didn’t love his line about “not getting on with his wife” in his (otherwise excellent) SAG speech. Like, why remind us of that? As Lainey summed it up: “What’s the lesson here? A beautiful man can say anything.”

-Speaking of the SAGs, Eugene and Dan Levy‘s opening bit slayed me — then continued to slay when they presented the first award.

-The cast of Parasite received a standing ovation at the SAG Awards when they presented an award. And later they won the big one! With this win and 1917 winning the Producers Guild and Golden Globe, those two have pulled ahead as the Oscar frontrunners.  I would adore a Parasite win, but I’ll take 1917 if it means Joker doesn’t get it.

John Boyega bought his mother and father a house and their reaction was stunned silence.

Paul Rudd continues to be excellent.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake are back to presenting a united front.

Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville play a longtime married couple struggling to cope with her breast cancer diagnosis in the trailer for Ordinary Love. Using that Magnetic Fields song feels like cheating, but ok.
