Cardi B Talks Farts and Family with Vogue

Cardi B did 73 Questions with Vogue, and she really takes you on a journey. Culture somehow manages to stay sleeping during the whole thing while her mom talks about smelling her own farts, meeting Beyonce, loving Offset‘s penis, and her questions for Trump. It’s shot at her grandmother’s apartment in NYC, which is by far the most normal-looking place that Vogue has every done one of these.

-Sources say Brad Pitt and Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat are not dating. Wait, was that even a possibility?!

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber were spotted kissing in public. Not enough people are talking about the fact that he is a grown ass 26 year old and she *just* turned 18.

Helena Bonham Carter is on a promo tour for the new season of The Crown, and it’s been an absolute delight. On Colbert, she spilled the tea on her co-stars including Colin Firth (“talks too much”), Rihanna (“could never understand a word she said”) and Sacha Baron Cohen (“he has emotional issues”).

-The Grammy nominations are out. It was a good morning for Lizzo, Billie Eillish, Lil Nas X and Bon Iver. Not so much for Taylor Swift, Halsey, Solange Knowles, The Jonas Brothers and BTS.

-After that sinking ship of an interviewPrince Andrew says he’s quitting public life ‘for the foreseeable future’ amid the Epstein scandal. “It has become clear to me over the last few days that…my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work.”

-Meanwhile, People decided the best royal angle for their latest cover story is the William and Harry rift. Sure, Jan.

Emilia Clarke says on the Game of Thrones set, Jason Momoa made sure directors didn’t take advantage of her during nude scenes and made sure she always had a robe between setups. “It’s only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that…because Jason had experience, he had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this, he was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be and this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that’s the way it goes.”

-The Harriet screenwriter says a movie exec once suggested Julia Roberts should play Harriet Tubman. (Somewhere out there Scarlett Johansson is wondering why they didn’t think of her.)

Robert Pattinson said he would pass the time in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia shooting The Lighthouse by reading sex shop Yelp reviews. “There were two pretty highly frequented sex shops…So many people would write about it and this is a town of maybe 400 people — well, maybe a little more than 400. But I could meet these people in the local shop if I wanted to.”

-He’s fresh off the disaster that was Lucy in the Sky, but Noah Hawley someone still managed to land a deal to write and direct the next Star Trek movie.

-In the latest Actors on Actors interview, Florence Pugh and Beanie Feldstein bond over Lizzie McGuire and That’s So Raven.

-Oof. I like a lot of Mimi Leder‘s work (she exec produced The Leftovers) but her dismal of the critical reception of The Morning Show is way off. “I thought there were a lot of Apple haters who just wanted Apple to fail. The reviews felt like an attack on Apple.” That would only make sense if critics panned all Apple shows, but every TV writer I follow seems to be in love with Dickinson.

Jennifer Lopez will be hosting SNL in December (yay!), as will Scarlett Johansson (boo!).

-Um, is Harrison Ford doing a dog movie?!? (I know it’s based on Jack London’s book, but it’s still a goddamn dog movie.)

Renée Zellweger Is Ready for Her Comeback

Renée Zellweger InStyle

Renée Zellweger covers InStyle and talks about how she got over “humiliating” tabloid coverage surrounding a breakup early in her career (“My brother taught me that this is what it is. This is not a proper representation of you and how you live your life. The choices you make, this is not. It is entertainment, and it’s funny if you look at it in the right way”) and why she took a few years off from acting (“It was nice to have authentic exchanges with people for a while. When you’re not on the radar, people don’t clock who you are; you’re just a person at the coffee shop ordering a coffee”).

John Legend has been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive which is cool, but man that pool cover photo is a weird choice.

-A much sexier magazine spread is Dan Levy in GQ, where he talks about about saying goodbye to Schitts Creek, that “Simply the Best” scene, and taking off David Rose’s shoes one last time.

Demi Lovato has gone Instagram official with Austin Wilson.

-It’s the happiest time of the year: roundtable time! We kick off with the actress roundtable featuring Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong’o, Awkwafina, Renee Zellweger, Laura Dern and (ugh) Scarlett Johansson.

-The latest Actors on Actors interview is the best one yet: Jennifer Lopez and Robert Pattinson. JLo talks about prepping for the Super Bowl (“Me and Shakira together. We’re both excited to have been given the opportunity to do that, as two Latin women, in Miami”) and Pattinson made me love him even more with his comments about acting (“I always say about people doing Method acting, you only ever see people doing Method when they’re playing an asshole. You never see someone just being lovely to everyone going, ‘I’m really deep in character'”).

-Time magazine has published its inaugural Next 100 class list, featuring young ‘uns like Camila Cabello and Awkwafina.

-The Friends reunion is actually happening — kinda. The cast and creators will reunite for an unscripted special on HBO Max.

-This Tom Hanks interview is delightful (as is the writer’s twitter thread about their conversation).

King Princess is going to be opening for Harry Styles on his newly announced tour and holy shit I have to go to a Harry Styles concert now don’t I?

Kristen Bell joined Jimmy Fallon to review the history of Disney songs.

Angelina Jolie Talks Moving On

Angelina Jolie is in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar and says she’s planning on moving to Africa. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18. Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”

Emma Watson calls herself “self-partnered” instead of “single,” which sounds kinda dirty and I love it.

-Talking to Howard Stern, Kristen Stewart says she would’ve married Robert Pattinson: “If he proposed, you would’ve gotten married. I’m not a super duper traditionalist, but at the same time…every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

Martin Scorcese wrote a NYT piece on superhero movies and film Twitter has been fighting about it all day. I actually agree with a lot of what he says about the changing business of making movies — media consolidation IS making it harder for smaller and/or diverse films to get theatrical releases. It’s all very similar to Soderbergh’s State of Cinema speech. But he undercuts his argument by taking unnecessary swipes at superhero movies, wading into a tired and snobbish ‘art vs. commerce’ debate. If he stuck to the business/industry side of things, and pointed out how scary Disney is becoming, I bet it would be more widely embraced. I think this thread nails it.

Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin in The Batman, with Andy Serkis up to play Alfred.

Footage surfaced of ABC’s Amy Robach talking about how she had the Epstein story three years ago, but the lawyers killed it. “The palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton — we had everything.” She later said “I was caught in a private moment of frustration.”

-Welp. Netflix is offering a “skip” button for Trump jokes in the new Seth Meyers comedy special.

Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are very charming in a new clip from Little Women.

Matt Damon told Conan O’Brien about the time Ben Affleck rescued him from a fight when they were young. “Little five-foot-two Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere. I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Two Popes, starring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins. People LOVED this at TIFF.
