Reese Witherspoon Gets Her 4th of July On

Reese Witherspoon is looking hella festive today.

-The backlash over Scarlett Johansson being cast in transgender role does not seem to be dying down anytime soon. The more I think about her statement, the angrier I get about it.

-This video of an old dude trying to cop a feel of Mel B during The X Factor is so bad. Especially gross is Simon Cowell‘s immediate attempts to dismiss it.

-I keep forgetting/repressing the fact that Billy Crudup and Naomi Watts are together.

Joshua Jackson talked about why he didn’t hesitate to protest family separation at the US border: “Canadians should be just as outraged.” God damn, Pacey grew up so good!

Felicity Jones got married. I like the honeymoon style way more than the wedding style (though it is very “her”).

-Proof that the Star Wars fandom has been toxic for a long time: actor Ahmed Best says he considered suicide over the backlash and death threats he got over his character, Jar Jar Binks.

-I don’t even read comic books and this Batman wedding stuff is kind of breaking my heart.

Yvette Nicole Brown says she is just “filling in” for Chris Hardwick at Comic-Con, not “jockeying” for his job. Take it!

-Aww, this bums me out: My Big Fat Greek Wedding’s Nia Vardalos and Felicity/Cougar Town’s Ian Gomez have filed for divorce after 23 years of marriage.

-An advertising watchdog found 51 examples of false advertising on GOOP’s website.

-Of all the people who could have defended Morgan Freeman following accusations of sexual harassment made against him by eight women, I didn’t think it would be Suzanne Somers. She said “Well, this probably won’t be real popular, but I think that women…I totally understand the Weinstein and Bill Cosby, that’s like, of course. But you know, like Morgan Freeman’s a big flirt. I know him really well. He sees you and he’ll like your dress and he’ll like your hair. He’ll like a lot of things…I hope the dance doesn’t stop. It’s seduction. It’s flirting. All those things are really fun. So I hope there’s a way we can find a nice medium with that.” Ugh.

-I like that David Foster‘s kids seem to be having fun with his engagement to the much younger Katherine McPhee.

-The video at the bottom of this article of the Set It Up couple setting up people on first dates is so adorable.

-Speaking of Set It Up, I watched it a friend’s house last weekend and couldn’t figure out why it looked so weird. It’s cause her TV has motion smoothing turned on. This makes so much sense now…

-I really enjoyed this interview with Dietland’s Marti Noxon, in which she talks about getting into “toe-to-toe screaming matches” with Sharp Objects director Jean-Marc Vallée, and all the flack she took for Buffy season six. I love that she calls Xander the embodiment of “impotent male anger.” I never realized what a gross character he was until I did a rewatch years later.

-I’m not exactly a crafty person, but man NBC’s Making It with Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman looks like a ton of fun. Now that The Handmaid’s Tale is wrapping up, this is about as heavy as I want my summer TV to get.

-I kinda want to see Skyscraper for some reason? I blame Neve Campbell’s presence.

The Queen Is Paid Less Than The Prince

-Well, this is bullshit. The Crown’s Claire Foy  was paid less than costar Matt Smith in the first two seasons. I get that he was the bigger name when the show first started, but surely they could have re-negotiated after season one when she was clearly the lead character (and the more compelling one). I stopped watching the show early, but everyone I know who hung on longer eventually dropped it because of “too much Philip.”

Lynda Carter opened up about her own #MeToo stories, and one involved a camera man on the Wonder Woman set drilling a hole into her dressing room wall so he could spy on her. Jesus.

-An HBO exec says the network’s budget is being “raped” by Game of Thrones and Big Little Lies. She’s since apologized for her “poor choice of words.” Ya think?

-Speaking of HBO, Nicole Kidman is reteaming with David E. Kelley for another book adaptation.

-When asked about a Buffy revival, the Fox TV boss said “When Joss Whedon decides it’s time, we’ll do it.”  So, that’s a “never” then.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik  have split after two years of dating. On the plus side, does this mean I don’t need to learn who either of those people are?!

Paul Feig says his production company is officially adopting an inclusion rider for all their film and TV productions moving forward.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck‘s production company made a similar announcement, which everyone immediately side-eyed.

Oprah, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling crashed A Wrinkle in Time screening in costume with James Corden.

-I have a bunch of X Files episodes piled up on my DVR, but Scully’s “are you kidding me?” at the end of this clip makes me want to watch all of them right now.

-I’m so glad that Love, Simon is getting such great reviews. I adored that book.

-This SXSW movie review is bizarre. Why does he keep calling the female characters “sluts”. How did this make it into print?!

-A new trailer dropped for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Crimes Of Grindelwald.  I want to be here for Jude Law as Dumbledore but ugh, Johnny Depp.

-Whoa. Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington are going to produce and star in a limited series TV adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere.  I guess I should probably get around to reading that book.

-Kerry is also set to produce a new ABC comedy starring Alyson Hannigan.

-Ooh boy. Warren Beatty & Faye Dunaway were rehearsing at the Dolby Theatre last night and are expected to present best picture again at the Oscars on Sunday.

-Meanwhile, E! remains fully in on Ryan Seacrest.

-This is a great take on why red carpet fashion matters.

-I’m not going to lie, I found this article about whether celebrities worry about having to poop at the Oscars fascinating.

-Also fascinating, this breakdown of who “won” awards season this year. I’d say based on fashion, nominations and general charm, Saoirse Ronan should have edged out Tiffany Haddish just slightly, but otherwise I don’t hate the way the top 10 shook out.

DJ Khaled dropped a surprise song today — but the biggest surprise was Beyonce’s verse, in which she called out Drake and Tiffany Haddish.

-A day after apologizing for his “reckless” treatment of women, Jacob Hoggard made sexual comments at a Hedley show in Brampton. This guy is trash.

Sandra Bullock: still awesome; still not married.

Gwyneth Paltrow now refers to ex-hubby Chris Martin as “my brother” which is not weird at all.

-God bless ABC for putting Leighton Meester back on our screens. I will never not be bitter than Blake Lively has a bigger career than her.

Dolly Parton says she, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are doing a reboot of 9 to 5, the iconic 1980 comedy about sexism and workplace harassment, written by Rashida Jones. Here for it.

-I got so very invested in the Twitter story that Nick Jonas saw a girl fall off her bike, tended to her skinned knee, spent the day with her, and then ended up kissing her. Turns out they were on a planned date instead of being strangers. I guess I should scrap my plan of throwing myself off a bicycle in front of Idris Elba then…

-Look, I’m not going to see Bruce Willis‘ remake of Death Wish and you probably shouldn’t either, but you should DEFINITELY read this hilarious review of it.

Luann De Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel surprised Jennifer Lawrence.and it made her SO HAPPY.
