Zendaya’s Promo Blitz

zendaya on the cover of British vogue vogue

Zendaya covers the October issue of British Vogue, styled by Law Roach. Between Dune and Spider-Man promotion, she’s everywhere right now and I don’t hate it.

In GQRegé-Jean Page talks about what’s next for his career, breaks down his favourite pieces from his own wardrobe, and says he’s moved on from the show that made him famous. “The universe has expanded. So I’m no longer in the Bridgerton WhatsApp group.”

-Goddamit. Michael K. Williams, who starred in everything from The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, Community and Lovecraft Country was found dead on Monday afternoon inside of his Brooklyn residence.

Angelina Jolie spoke to The Guardian mostly about her activism, but the article is getting more attention for the gross way the writer opens it, and her brief mention of being “hurt” when then-husband Brad Pitt worked with Harvey Weinstein despite knowing the producer had tried to assault her.

-The publicists for Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac‘s new HBO show must have popped champagne when they realized that this slo-mo gif of him kissing her arm on the red carpet went viral. (They’re actors and they’re both very good at acting and promotion, but damn that response underlines just how starved we are for a pair that has good onscreen chemistry.)

-Chastain posted a cheeky response to the hubhub. He later held her purse on a different red carpet because again, they’re very good at this.

-Speaking of things that caused the internet to melt down this long weekend, Olivia Munn was papped and appears to be pregnant, which has led to lots of speculation about the timeline of her and John Mulaney‘s relationship. A tiktok has resurfaced that a comedian posted back in May about the pair expecting, right after that news of his split from his wife came out.

-It feels like a good time to revisit this piece about fans’ connection to Mulaney, and the parasocial cloud that now seems to surround him.

-Emily in Paris star Lily Collins got married in Colorado over the weekend, and People has the photos.

-Expect a lot less filler episodes in the new season of Survivor. The competition will only be 26 days long instead of the usual 39 days due to a two-week Covid quarantine for the cast and crew, but host Jeff Probst says the change could be permanent.

Michaela Coel says she turned down Netflix’s $1 million deal due to due to a “lack of transparency,” “exploitation” and their refusal to let her own the copyright for I May Destroy You.

-Meanwhile, Coel looks incredible on the cover of Elle UK.

Patrick Wilson looks like Momoa-lite on the set of Aquaman 2. I kept hearing some not-great things about Momoa during his summer filming here, so maybe Wilson can take over?

-Ok fine, Momoa’s new Aquaman suit has won me back.

-Marvel’s Shang Chi (which I really dug) crushed box office expectations, which might convince Disney to keep The Eternals in theatres only.

A new fan site for The Matrix: Resurrections generates a unique teaser video featuring footage and narration from the sequel. Right now, if you click on the blue pill you get Neil Patrick Harris’ character saying, “you’ve lost your capacity to discern reality from fiction,” but if you choose the red pill and enter the matrix, you hear Yahya Abdul-Mateen II’s voice telling you the current time and saying that “couldn’t be further from the truth.” Both options give you different glimpses of footage.

-The Carrie Diaries’ Anna Sophia Robb announced on Instagram that she’s engaged, and this pic is so much better than the ultra-staged ones we usually get.

Friends of Jean-Michel Basquiat are not happy with Beyoncé and Jay-Z for their use of a painting by the late American artist their Tiffany & Co ad.

Janet Jackson promises to tell her own story in the teaser for Janet, a two-night documentary coming to Lifetime.

Jake Gyllenhaal plays a 911 operator who receives distressing call in trailer for The Guilty. I’m seeing this next week at TIFF and I don’t know if my blood pressure can handle it.

 

Olivia Rodrigo Talks Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift

Olivia Rodrigo, lil nas x and thomas doherty on separate Variety covers

-It’s a big day for the young ‘uns in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter announced it’s New Hollywood A-list, featuring Florence Pugh, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rege-Jean Page and more. Meanwhile, Olivia Rodrigo is on the cover of Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood Issue, which also features Lil Nas X and Gossip Girl’s Thomas Doherty. (The 90s styling for all these photo shoots is breaking my brain.)

-Meanwhile, Variety’s Q&A portion with Lil Nas X is worth a read. The talks about meeting guys on Grindr, why people shouldn’t make jokes about bottoming, and how he’s met “the one.”

-In news that should surprise no one, David Schwimmer‘s rep is shooting down that sketch report that he’s dating Jennifer Aniston.

Dolly Parton has co-authored a novel with James Patterson, because there’s nothing she can’t do!

-Jeopardy announced Mike Richards and Mayim Bialik are splitting host duties. Richards will host the daily syndicated program (shady lawsuits be damned) and Bialik will host prime time specials and spinoffs

-A new Netflix YouTube series interviews mothers about their famous children. Anyone else find it weird that Netflix has series on Youtube? Like, don’t you already have a streaming service for that?

-“The female gaze is a Career Maker” is so, so true, which makes actors shying away from romcoms odd. Even recently, I feel like Glen Powell, Noah Centineo, and Jacob Elori all became buzzy only after being in a romcom.

-Speaking of Elori, Kissing Booth 3 is getting unsurprisingly bad reviews. Still gonna watch it and hate myself after…

Hilary Swank has settled her suit against SAG-AFTRA after being denied health coverage for treatment of endometriosis and ovarian cysts.

50 Cent says DaBaby is going to be just fine. “As long as he keeps the consistency with the music, he’ll be back. Remember they cancelled Chris Brown like five or six times?”

Justin Bieber is leading the MTV VMAs with seven nominations, followed by Megan Thee Stallion with six nods.

-I keep forgetting that Brett Goldstein not only plays Roy Kent on Ted Lasso, but he’s also a writer on the show. He says his favourite scene is one he didn’t write or star in: when Rebecca confesses to Ted.

Lea Michele trended today because there’s a Funny Girl revival happening and everyone is wondering how she’s feeling that she wasn’t cast in it — Beanie Feldstein was.

-Congrats to Sophia Bush, who announced her engagement. I love that they did a whole photo shoot in Lake Como.

-Meanwhile, the ladies of OTH are doing a podcast rewatch, we means we’re suddenly getting new dirt on a show that went off the air in 2012. Sophia Bush says talking about her ex-husband and former costar Chad Michael Murray is “not worth my time,” adding “Oh, I’m not going to talk about him. I’m not allowed to because I’ve tried to poke fun at being a dumb kid and whenever I’ve done that, it gets twisted into I’m talking s— about somebody who I don’t even know anymore, who’s clearly a grownup.”  I still remember how crazy it was to be in Toronto when Murray was shooting House of Wax with Paris Hilton and all the crazy sightings/rumours flying around.

-Fans of Dan Levy raised $5ok for the Faculty of Native Studies at UofA, and he took to Instagram to express his awe and admiration.

-Here’s the season two trailer for The Other Two, one of my favourite comedies from last year. Between this and The White Lotus, I’m so here for the Molly Shannon renaissance!

-Showtime released the trailer for its upcoming docuseries Gossip, about celeb coverage. The trailer focuses on Rupert Murdoch and Page Six’s Cindy Adams, but I hope it also has an episode devoted to Janice Min, who I think had the biggest impact on who gets covered and how.

-The trailer for Nic Cage’s Prisoners Of The Ghostland is as odd as you’d expect.

Rachel Lindsay Speaks Out About the Bachelor

Rachel Lindsay, the first black Bachelorette, officially ended her contract with Bachelor Nation in April, but now she’s sharing exactly what led to that choice. She delivered a powerful commentary in an essay for Vulture: “The (Bachelor) franchise has spent 19 years cultivating a toxic audience. They have constantly given it a product it wants: a midwestern/southern white, blonde, light-eyed Christian.” She added, “I’m no longer making myself available to The Bachelor universe. To the franchise, I am no longer a figurehead. I am no longer a spot-filler. I am no longer the face of what is diverse.”

-The new Ted Lasso trailer has arrived. It needs 80% more Roy, but I laughed really hard at “It’s like Dukes of Hazards. Or over here you probably call it Earls of Risk is very funny. Also, “Rom-Communism.”
