Chloë Sevigny Poses For The Cut 3 Weeks Before Her Due Date

Chloë Sevigny, who is 9 months pregnant, shows off her baby bump in a nude shoot for The Cut.

Jimmy Fallon and Kate Hudson reminisced about almost dating after Almost Famous, with her telling him: “You gave me no indication…If you would have actually made a move, I would have totally gone there.” Nicole Kidman also once told him that he’d missed his shot.

Rob Lowe says that when he and Tom Cruise were cast in The Outsiders, they were flown to NYC and put up at The Plaza, and 18-year-old Tom went “ballistic” at having to share a room.

Olivia Munn says Bryan Singer walked off the set of X-Men: Apocalypse in Montreal to fly to Los Angeles for approximately 10 days to deal with a “thyroid issue,” leaving the production to scramble without a director.

-I really can’t handle any stories about Jeff Goldblum being problematic right now.

-Someday I hope we get the full story about how Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies‘ feud on The Good Wife got so bad, the show had to film their final scene separately and use special effects to splice them together. But today is not that day. When asked about the rumored behind-the-scenes tensions in an interview with The New York Times, Panjabi demured, telling the interviewer, “You’re very naughty, Jessica.” When pressed, the actress very tactfully answered: “I completely understand why everyone asks about it. Everybody I meet asks me about it, in some roundabout way…I’ve said what I’m going to say.”

-What will TV and movie productions look like once filming resumes? Studios are talking about closed sets, airline-style packaged meals, fewer location shoots, and shooting sex scenes with actors separately and then bringing it together in post-production. Maybe Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies could give them pointers?

Lea Michele is expecting her first child. Seeing how she’s still posting about her wedding, I’m already cringing at what her Instagram feed will look like in the coming months.

John Krasinski is also planning something for the graduating class of 2020 on his next episode of Some Good News.

-The cast reunions continue. The actors from Goonies got together for the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, while the cast of Melrose Place is set to reunite to support the Actors Fund.

-One thing I love about the CW is they seem to really encourage their actresses to try directing. Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist directs the May 3 episode.

-Don’t you hate when you forget about your giant penis art? Phoebe Waller-Bridge was on The Graham Norton Show and showed off the ‘wall of penises’ prop from season 1 of Fleabag. “You know when you just put something down at your house, and then you don’t think about it for ages? It just becomes invisible to you, and you forget that you have 12 massive penises at your front door. And this delivery guy came and I just completely forgot. He kind of had to like bring something in and he was like knocking against the cocks as he was coming in and I suddenly saw them again for the first time in ages. I was like ‘Oh god, I’m so sorry’ and he just looked me dead in the eye and went ‘It’s art. Never apologize for art.’ ”

-With everything that’s been going on in the world, news about the Pentagon releasing UFO footage has been lost in the shuffle. Even more lost in the shuffle? The fact that the footage first surfaced thanks to Blink-182’s Tom DeLonge.

-In the new trailer for Homecoming season 2, Janelle Monáe tries to unlock the secrets of her identity. Is that Joan Cusack?!

Ana de Armas Gets Her Turn

Ana de Armas vanity fair

-In her new Variety cover story, Kerry Washington talks steering her own career after Scandal, and tackling the challenge of Little Fires Everywhere.

-If you can ignore the weird flourishes from the author, this is a good NYT interview with Ben Affleck on his struggle to stay sober.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are skipping Prince Andrew’s 60th birthday party on February 19, citing “commitments.” Is it because they’re committed to not celebrating a possible sex offender?

Justin Bieber got emotional while talking about protecting Billie Eilish. She posted the video on IG, with images of her old bedroom adorned with his posters.

-Meanwhile, Billie says she’s stopped reading comments on her social posts because they were “ruining” her life. Smart cookie.

Britney Spears‘ Womanizer video from 2008 is suddenly and inexplicably one of YouTube’s most viewed videos — and no one knows why.

-This is a good piece on how The Flash hired its first black showrunner in season six, and it’s finally acknowledging that Iris is black. “I feel more comfortable bringing up concerns that I have, and I feel like those concerns are received and listened to a little differently,” Candice Patton says, adding that she’s addressed longstanding issues like the way in which her skin was lit during scenes or having access to artists equipped to style her hair and do her makeup.

-I tend to not love celeb couple ads, but Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr‘s Cascade commercial is very cute and I want them to have all the success in the world so let’s just allow it.

Dwayne Wade was on GMA today and talked about daughter Zaya: “I knew that I had to check myself. I have been a person in the locker room who has been part of the conversation that has said the wrong phrases and wrong words…As I got older and watched my daughter grow, I had to go look at myself in the mirror and say: Who are you?”

Jameela Jamil‘s boyfriend James Blake has jumped to her defense.

-First Alison Brie alluded to it on Reddit, and now Yvette Nicole Brown is hinting at a Community movie on Twitter.

-We’re already talking about next year’s possible Oscar contenders? Settle down, Hollywood.

Jessie J and Channing Tatum having impromptu dance parties to Sam Smith songs is very cute.

-Congrats to Patti Murin and Colin Donnell, who are expecting their first kid. I love them both even though I don’t think I watch anything they’re actually in.

-The Fug Girls have written a follow up to The Royal We and why are they starting the promo tour so early when it doesn’t come out until July? The wait is going to be torture.

-Pete Davidson plays a grown ass man who hangs out with a 16-year-old kid in the trailer for Big Time Adolescence.

-Here’s the trailer for the Apple+ revival of Steven Spielberg‘s anthology series Amazing Stories.

Golden Globes 2019: Best and Worst Dressed

 

TV and film’s biggest stars pulled out all the stops at the 77th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday. Red lips, big sleeves and plunging necklines were the big themes of the red carpet. Nicole and I made our picks for the best and worst looks of the night below. (Spoiler alert: we both liked Kerry Washington’s boob necklace. Fight us.)

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2020 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: I adore a good ladysuit and Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge more than delivers in this sparkly Ralph & Russo. Love the cut, love the hair, love the attitude, love her.

Nicole: Although the structure of Beanie Feldstein’s Oscar de la Renta gown is simple, it’s flattering and I like the way the neckline frames her face and her simple yet elegant braided headband. The look is fun, youthful and perfect for a young nominee.

Jen: Ana de Armas‘ knives are out in this sparkling blue Ralph & Russo number. Bonus points for the pockets!

Nicole: Taylor Swift is wearing boho Italian brand Etro and the bold print is a standout on the red carpet. The tank-style top is casual and the cutout keeps the large structured gown from overwhelming her frame. The gown says ‘I know I’m just here for fun and definitely not to win for #Cats.’

Jen: When Zoey Deutch stepped onto the red carpet in this perfectly tailored canary Fendi jumpsuit, I gasped. The colour is perfect, the hair is excellent and the jewelry pulls the whole thing together. A stunner.

Nicole: Charlize Theron is wearing Dior as per usual but this look is carried by her overall styling with the black nails, the corset trend, the shoulder cape and a totally different green shade that we’ve not seen. Electric and edgy and matches her overall vibe. Max girl crush.

Jen: I was really hoping Saoirse Ronan would bring it, and she did not disappoint! This slinky, backless, sideboob-y Celine is a dream. She can, as the kids say, step on my neck.

Nicole: Kerry Washington in Altuzzara is a revelation. I love the slinky skirt which totally offsets the structured jacket under which she’s wearing… a necklace? God, I love this even though I have no idea what’s happening. Her styling is impeccable with a sleek bob and bright red lip. Edgy and elegant. [Jen: I also love this look but judging from the internet, we’re totally alone in this 🤣]

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2020 GOLDEN GLOBES:

Jen: I love when stars take a risk on the red carpet, but Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Fendi look is a LOT to process. My eyes don’t know where to focus first. The ab-baring bikini with the prairie dress cover up? The necklace buried underneath? The colour that matches her spray tan? The ass corset? It’s all too much!!

Nicole: Jennifer Lopez showed up with A Rod who looked more like her security detail than her fiancée. From the neck up, she’s gorgeous. Then it’s like a Christmas gift that I wrapped (i.e. – no amount of bows can make up for how awful it looks). Wrinkled and big and not what I would have expected from Maison Valentino or her. (Also shut the f*ck up during her interviews, ARod.)

Jen: I know the internet is in love with Baby Yoda, but there’s no need for cosplay, Jodie Comer. This is a wrinkled, shapeless disaster from Mary Katrantzou. Villanelle would never!

Nicole: Cate Blanchett is a VIBE but her Mary Katranzou dress is as messy as the film she’s nominated for (Where’d You Go Bernadette was better as a book!). She leans into the statement sleeve trend but the bodice and skirt throw this look off-kilter. New York Times’ IG caption said “wait for the back” but I guess that’s only because it’s just as bad from behind?

Jen: Dakota Fanning plays the part of a pouffy princess in Dior. I’m all for a bit of whimsy on the red carpet, but Kirsten Dunst did it better tonight in pale pink Rodarte.

Nicole: From the waist up, Scarlett Johansson up looks lovely. Predictable but lovely. So why on earth would Vera Wang feel the need to add a giant ass bow? Why does this continue to be a thing? Also can we just construct better gowns that don’t need figure skater material to hold them together? What happened to good old fashioned double-sided tape??
