Jacob Elordi is in the new issue of GQ Australia, and despite being spotted with Euphoria costar Zendaya in Greece (and then at the movies. And then in Sydney), he denies they’re dating (“she’s like my sister”). The boy still raves about her though, cause he has eyeballs: “Zendaya is an amazing creative, you know? She’s super dope to work with. She’s an incredible artist and a very caring person to all of us.”

Pete Davidson is making his standup audience sign $1 million NDAs. (In this economy?!) It was enforced at a recent San Francisco show where a fan refused to sign the agreement. This is, obviously, stupid. If your material is ready to be viewed by the paying public, said paying public can judge/talk about it.

Prince William and Princess Kate are going to bake up some holiday treats — and you can watch! The royal couple will appear alongside Mary Berry in a BBC special, A Berry Royal Christmas.

Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler’s Making It returns to NBC tonight, so here’s 60 seconds of them slinging craft-related puns at each other.

Tom Welling is having a big month. Not only will he reprise his Smallville role on next week’s CW crossover, but he and his longterm girlfriend Jessica Rose Lee got married over the weekend.

-My god, I can’t believe the risks Watchmen is taking every week. I’m not even sure how I feel about last night’s insane reveal, but it’s breathtakingly ballsy. Please watch this show.

Alanis Morissette just announced a Jagged Little Pill 25th Anniversary tour with Garbage and Liz Phair. Yes to all of that!

-Is This Is Us star Justin Hartley‘s divorce going to be messy? Days after the actor filed the paperwork, his wife broke her social media silence by posting a quote: “It’s hard to watch people change right in front of you. But it’s even harder remembering who they used to be.”

-Sadness: Shelley Morrison, who played Rosario on Will & Grace, passed away at 83.

Martin Scorsese‘s new movie The Irishman may be on Netflix, but that doesn’t mean he wants you to watch it on the subway. “I would suggest if you ever want to see one of my pictures, or most films – please, please don’t look at it on a phone, please. An iPad, a big iPad, maybe.”

-Knives Out (which I saw this weekend and was thoroughly delighted by) doubled its tracking predictions by opening with a $41.7 million domestic box office, pretty much making back its budget.

Fenty just won the Urban Luxe Award at the British Fashion Awards, marking the first British Fashion Award for Rihanna.

Margaret Qualley and Miranda July posted some videos on Instagram which seems like it’s performance art, but then Jaden Smith waded into it and I’m confused. He’s in on it, right?

-This is a wonderful feature on Laura Dern reflecting on her career, from Enlightened being ahead of its time (“But now, this year, this moment particularly, everywhere I go, people are bringing it up, like, ‘Oh my God, I just found Enlightened, we are Amy Jellicoe. We are all Amy'”)  to the fallout of Ellen’s infamous coming out episode (“We only did it for what, ten days? We all spent the next couple of years really struggling in work and safety. It was radical to experience that. It was the only time I ever experienced having to have to have full security detail”).

-SAG-AFTRA has launched an investigation into Gabrielle Union‘s firing from America’s Got Talent.

Josh Hartnett and his brother are drug dealers who get in over their head in the Inherit the Viper trailer.

Miley Cyrus’s Damage Control Fail

-Ugh. Miley Cyrusnon-apology apology for saying gay women just need to find a good man is terrible.

Rihanna‘s $150 “visual autobiography” has been released. Yay?

-Speaking of celebs with unexpected books, Jenna Dewan talks about the end of her marriage to Channing Tatum in hers: “First and foremost I had to accept the realization this isn’t working and had moved into hurting.”

-The noose keeps tightening around Prince Andrew’s neck but he doesn’t seem to care. How privileged to you have to feel to just be able to shrug this stuff off like your teflon?

Lizzo brought Macaulay Culkin on stage during her L.A. concert last night and it was quite adorable.

Scarlett Johansson says isn’t going to let Michael Che anywhere near Colin Jost’s bachelor party, which seems like good planning.

Keira Knightley revealed that she gave birth to a baby girl six weeks ago that she named Delilah.

Ken Loach is the latest old school filmmaker to crap on Marvel movies. (At least his comments seem to be more about the current movie marketplace and what opportunities filmmakers are getting shut out of as blockbusters become the status quo, which is more understandable than the crotchety “it’s not good” refrain.)

-It’s hilarious that during the CW crossover filming, someone always seems to fall asleep during a scene. Previously it was Melissa Benoist, this year it’s Stephen Amell.

-Speaking of the CW, I’m pleasantly surprised that Batwoman is doing well in the ratings. I don’t think it’s for me, but good on female-fronted superhero shows.

Lori Loughlin and other parents were just hit with additional charges in the college admissions scandal.

-In this clip from her new Netflix special, Jenny Slate explains football and suddenly everything makes sense.

-Speaking of Adam Driver movies, here’s the first trailer for The Report, which I saw at TIFF and liked a lot.

Jennifer Aniston Talks Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein

Jennifer Aniston covers Variety to promote her new Apple series The Morning Show, and talks about researching Matt Lauer before filming  (“It’s such a strange thing; it felt oddly like my dad did something terrible. I trusted him and had been interviewed by him. He was there for so many moments in my life. And when Friends was ending, it was Katie [Couric] and Matt interviewing us”), says that Harvey Weinstein knew not to bully her (“He knew better. I remember, right when [his ex-wife] Georgina’s clothing line Marchesa was starting. That’s when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He’d be like, ‘Ok, so I’d like you to wear one of these to the premiere.’ And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.’ That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress'”), and explains why the Friends reunion hasn’t happened (“Because our producers wouldn’t want it, wouldn’t let us. Look, it’s not been without our desire to, because our fans have wanted it so much”).

Ann Curry tweeted about Matt Lauer‘s accuser: “Brooke Nevils is a credible young woman of good character. She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something, brimming with talent. I believe she is telling the truth. And that breaks my heart.”

-Meanwhile, Nevils has responded to his denial: “I am not afraid of him now, regardless of his threats, bullying, and the shaming and predatory tactics I knew he would (and now has) tried to use against me. The shame in this story belongs to him.”

-In Elle, Natalie Portman says she’s glad to have shaken off her “manic pixie dream girl” image from Garden State. “It’s definitely a relief to be out of the phase where you’re supposed to be adorable…It certainly is stifling to be the one who’s enacting someone else’s idea of how a young woman should behave.”

-Also in Elle, Zendaya opens up about her anxiety: “I already know after this interview is over, I’m going to spiral about it for weeks.”

Drew Barrymore just landed a daytime talk show. I think she’ll be great at it, but with new shows from Kelly Clarkson, Keke Palmer and RuPaul the field is getting crowded.

-Ruh roh. Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been fired from The Masked Singer Australia.

-Now that we’re all pretty much over Chris Pratt, which famous Chris should take his place in the best Chris ranking?

-Do you remember how after Fresh Prince, Will Smith said that he and his manager sat down and studied the top 10 grossing movies of all time to determine their comment elements, and then set out to only make those? This article highlights how his most recent career moves have been just as methodical.

-Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto reportedly felt “alienated and upset” when Warner Bros. decided to move ahead with a solo Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix. So there might be something redeeming about Joker after all!

-Movie stars continue to jump to Apple’s upcoming streaming service. Clive Owen and Julianne Moore have signed on for a new series.

-Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh appeared on The Social this week and talked about DMing Rihanna.

Robert Downey Jr. has asked not to be considered for an Oscar for Avengers: Endgame which is very nice but like, who told him he was being considered?

-I really like this piece on how Succession uses Shiv as a weapon. Everyone is so ruthless on this show that I think audiences automatically gravitate to the female characters like Gerri and Shiv for glimpses of humanity, and last week’s episode shattered that.

-Even though I’m about to get on an Air Canada flight and bracing myself for the worst (because it’s AC and they’re usually terrible), this commercial Sandra Oh did for them about how to travel like a Canadian is very cute. (Speaking of which I’m taking a few days off. Be back next week!)
