Jennifer Aniston Talks “Successful” Marriages and Lack of Social Media

Jennifer Aniston Elle Magazine

-In her new Elle cover storyJennifer Aniston talks about her marriages (“My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion…and when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore”), potential future children (“Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership — how that child comes in… or doesn’t? And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to”) and her lack of social media presence (“If I’m sitting here posting something about my dogs or I’m Boomeranging my coffee mug in the morning, that’s just giving away one more piece of something that is mine”).

-The Oscars host search continued. Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting less than 24 hours after being announced because people found his (not very hidden) anti-gay tweets. I don’t believe this will hurt his career AT ALL, but those tweets weren’t secret. The Academy should have known better.

-Now the search is on for another host. Tiffany Haddish and/or The Rock would be awesome, no?

-The Cut writer of that Priyanka Chopra piece has apologized. But where’s her editor in all this?

-Look, I don’t post pics of celebrities’ kids, but holy crap you need to Google the new photo of George and Amal Clooney‘s son because it is is golden.

Leonardo DiCaprio just can’t stop buying dinosaur bones, which isn’t weird at all.

Cardi B found out about her Grammy noms when she was in court. What is life?

-Oof, Ashley Judd had a convo with a sex-worker activist, and her final words are the height of white feminism.

-What is up with The Grinder lawsuit? I loved that show and I loved Fred Savage in it, so this is all very disheartening.

-The Good Place threw in another crazy, Earth-shattering twist, and I love this article on all the logistics of it.

-Well, look at that: Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker is a ratings success (which is funny because I saw a lot of fanboy tweets talking about what a failure it is….)

Saoirse Ronan is reportedly dating her Mary, Queen of Scots costar Jack Lowden.

-Wow, did I ever love this story on how marketing screwed over Jennifer’s Body, because no one knew how to sell a horror movie made by women for teen girls, and because everyone at the time was roorting for Diablo Cody and Megan Fox to fail.

-Seeing as how the Game of Thrones crew has talked a lot about filming fake scenes and printing fake scripts, I’m not convinced this leaked spoiler is legit.

-The Avengers: Endgame trailer is all anyone’s talking about. I can’t believe it’s coming out in April (just a month after Captain Marvel). I’m in no way complaining, but it feels like I *just* saw Infinity War. Also, here’s trailer, but with Boyz II Men’s End Of The Road  instead, which makes it even better.

Gwyneth Paltrow Mocked For Claiming She Popularized Yoga

Gwyneth Paltrow yoga

-Yoga may have been around since ancient India, but according to Gwyneth Paltrow, she’s responsible for it’s current popularity. In her WSJ magazine cover story, she says “Forgive me if this comes out wrong, but I went to do a yoga class in LA recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, ‘Have you ever done yoga before?’ And, literally, I turned to my friend, and I was like, ‘She has this job because I’ve done yoga before.'” Needless to say, that quote is NOT going over well on the internet.

Cardi B confirmed she and Offset have called it quits, posting in an IG video that “things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time” and they “grew out of love.” Meanwhile, he commented on the post “y’all won,” which is really sad.

-Remember how incredibly charming Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were when they presented together at the Emmys? Now they’ll get to reprise their chemistry when they host the Golden Globes together. (This awesome news has totally overshadowed today’s pleasant but less exciting announcement that Kevin Hart will host the Oscars.)

-Netflix doesn’t release ratings but reports say Daredevil was Netflix’s 4th biggest show this fall — and still it got cancelled.

-Also, this is a good analysis on what losing Friends might mean for Netflix.

-The new promo for Jason Momoa’s SNL episode is already better than the last three episodes combined.

Tom Cruise is doing god’s work by urging everyone to turn off their TV’s motion smoothing. (Challenge: when you visit other people’s homes over the holidays, try to sneak into their TV’s settings and make sure it’s turned off. It’ll be your gift to them.)

Chloe Grace Moretz was spotted kissing model Kate Harrison.

Hannah Gadsby kicked off the Women In Entertainment ceremony with a powerful opening speech: “Men are not creepy. Spiders are creepy. Rejecting the humanity of a woman is not creepiness. It is misogyny.”

-Ooh boy, the latest report on Les Moonves reveals it was way worse than originally reported.  CBS’s lawyers’ 59-page report alleges that Moonves repeatedly lied to investigators and destroyed evidence, that CBS had an employee “on call” to perform oral sex on Moonves, that he received oral sex from four CBS employees that appeared to be “transactional,” and that members of CBS’s board knew about Moonves’s alleged sexual misconduct way back in 2007 but did nothing to stop him.

-People got SOOO angry about that Cut story I linked to yesterday on how Priyanka Chopra is scamming Nick Jonas. I assumed it was a satire but others didn’t — including Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, who tweeted angrily about it. It eventually got taken down, so I guess it really was a story that actually woobified Jonas. Which is so odd.

-It seems like this has been a week of bad takes. This one on peak TV from a few days ago still makes me angry because it’s so misguided, while the editor apologized for this piece that claimed Ariana Grande‘s “thank u, next” video was “anti queer”.

-Meanwhile Grande has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.

-I’m really digging the new trailer for next week’s CW crossover. All their superhero shows feel really bleak right now, so I’m down for some Freaky Friday-style body swapping shenanigans. I want a whole sequence about Barry discovering he suddenly has abs.

-As much as I like superhero TV, I don’t really watch the animated stuff, especially on the big screen. But the way that everyone I know is RAVING about the new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film has me curious.

-Good on Dakota Johnson for asking Armie Hammer probing questions that giant line of coke he does on Sorry To Bother You.

-Don’t try to challenge Saoirse Ronan on Bridesmaids trivia; she’ll win.

-Meawhile, Ronan is fierce in the Mary Queen of Scots trailer.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Never-ending Wedding

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Wedding

-If you thought you already knew everything about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding — you’d probably be right. But they’re still on the new cover of People and all over Hello!’s social media. Good for them for wringing every last cent from the festivities, I guess.

-Meanwhile, this tongue-in-cheek deep-dive into the validity of their relationship is hilarious. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December the 2, and I’ll tell you why I think so.”

-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer looks amazing on the cover of Wonderland. I hope she becomes a huge star.

-Great forking news: The Good Place just got an early renewal for season 4, so maybe 2018 isn’t a total garbage fire.

Meghan Markle and Michelle Obama chatted privately last night when the royal stopped by the former first lady’s London book tour.

-Meanwhile, here’s more scoop on who’s leaking all those stories from the palace.

-GQ interviewed a bunch of people about the late Anthony Bourdain and collected their stories, and goddammit the resulting article made me weepy. “He turned to Tony and said, ‘How far can you keep going? Where else can you go? You can’t go to the moon!’ And Tony goes, ‘Really? Why not? I’ll go to the moon and make an episode on the moon. I’ll go anywhere.'”

-The CW is developing a Jane The Virgin spin-off series that will be written by long-time show writer Valentina Garza and will involve Gina Rodriguez.

Kayne West apologized after being caught on his phone at Cher‘s Broadway show. (This is in no way an excuse, but apparently the show is really, really bad.)

-Wait, Demi Moore allegedly has a secret girlfriend? I can’t believe I missed this until now!

-Netflix will reportedly pay WarnerMedia $100M in 2019 to continue streaming Friends (up from $30M). This is NUTS — especially because it will soon be available on another streaming site next year.

-BBC just announced that Luther will air on New Year’s Day. Perfect hangover cure!

-The big guns came out for Ryan Murphy’s Walk of Fame star ceremony, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson.

-The Actors on Actors interviews always result in some interesting pairings. The latest has Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone talking about dealing with rejection, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o discussing women in Hollywood, Charlize Theron and Michael B Jordan talking about the impact of Black Panther, and Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda talking about writing Shallow.

-Variety’s list of 10 directors to watch for 2019 includes 6 women.

-People are loving the new Captain Marvel trailer. (Though I’m not quite sure why people are calling it a “course correction” because I loved the first trailer too.)
