Tina Fey Opens Up to David Letterman for THR


Tina Fey was interviewed by David Letterman for the latest issue of THR and it’s great. She talks about her fear of artists becoming Leni Riefenstahl, offers her take on Donald Trump getting into a Twitter war with Alec Baldwin (“You think you’re good at being a jerk on Twitter? You will now face the grandmaster of being a jerk on Twitter”), and reveals she’s in a daily group chat with Maya Rudolph, Emily Spivey, Paula Pell, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, and Rachel Dratch.

Reese Witherspoon is confused by Westworld.

Ryan Murphy says he now regrets that he directed the People v. O.J.’s Marcia Clark episode instead of hiring a woman to do it. I have my issues with him, but it’s good of him to admit this.

-Ellen DeGeneres bet Natalie Portman $1,000 that’s she’s having a girl.

Azealia Banks Kicked Out of Russell Crowe’s Hotel Room

-What the hell happened this weekend between Russell Crowe and Azealia Banks? She was reportedly hanging out in his hotel as RZA‘s guest, began criticizing his music selection and allegedly got into an altercation with another female. Crowe is said to have physically removed her and called security, but now she’s filed a police report saying that he choked her and called her the n-word, and is promising “receipts.” So now the two most belligerent people in Hollywood are in a he said/she said; this should end well.

Kylie Jenner says she didn’t get butt implants, it’s just her “chunkiness.” If by “chunkiness” she means “injections” then sure.

-This is an interesting take on how the Billy Bush saga might mark the end of softball entertainment journalism.

Jennifer Garner is not taking Ben Affleck back. It’s a Christmas miracle!

-Is Guy Ritchie turning Madonna‘s son against her? The fact that the 15-year-old had to be ordered to spend xmas with his mom isn’t a good sign. Remember when he was a cute lil b-boy at his mom’s concerts?

-I fell down a rabbit hole over the holidays and watched all of Netflix’s Making a Murderer, which is insanely engrossing. I’m not alone; Alec Baldwin live-tweeted his viewing. HBO & PBS both passed on the series a few years ago, long before we all caught Serial fever. Now hacktivists Anonymous have taken up the cause (and introduced a new tow truck theory).

Hugh Jackman: kicking my “awwws” into overdrive once again.
