Dominic West Defends Marriage Following Lily James Pics

-I mean, is there anything else to talk about today than what went down with Dominic West over the weekend? The Daily Mail published photos of The Affair actor (lol) in Rome canoodling with Lily James, his costar in a new BBC adaptation of The Pursuit of Love (he plays her father). The Daily Mail was quick with a followup about how West’s wife, Catherine Fitzgerald (who — let’s not forget — owns a freakin’ castle!) was shocked and devastated. However, West and Fitzgerald presented a united front this morning when they greeted the press outside their home with a handwritten note saying they’re “very much still together.” I’m not sure if they have an open relationship or they’ve worked it out or they’re trying to save face, but I am glad that their bizarre press conference made his name trend instead of the previously trending James (who was last rumoured to be dating Chris Evans).

Offset reportedly rented a billboard for Cardi B‘s birthday — and it seems to have worked. The nearly divorced couple were seen kissing and dancing at her 28th birthday party (and after-party) in Vegas.

-My god, Demi Lovato’s ex is never going to give up the spotlight, is he?

-In a powerful New York Times op-ed, Megan Thee Stallion addressed the election, sexism, police brutality, and violence against women: “We deserve to be protected… and we are entitled to our anger.”

Gloria Estefan and her daughter Emily had a tough discussion about Emily’s coming-out on Red Table Talk. Emily remembers: “The first thing you said was ‘If you tell your grandmother and she dies, her blood is on your hands.'”

Gal Gadot has been cast in the upcoming Cleopatra movie from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins — and Twitter was quick to call it white-washing.

-Meanwhile, Gadot spoke to Vanity Fair about the backlash to her “Imagine” video at the start of the pandemic. “Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it’s just not the right good deed. I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.”

Zoe Kravitz looks amazing as Catwoman on the Batman set.

Jon Cryer told a great story on Twitter this weekend about how he lost his wedding ring while walking in Vancouver — and found it the next day.

Shantel VanSanten talked about how The Flash abruptly dumped her character in season 2 after she booked another series: “I don’t think it was supposed to end as quickly as it did. I don’t know if a whole lot of people know this, but I actually worked it out with my contract so I could finish the whole season and be around. But a showrunner that’s no longer on that show was very upset with me, and so he put me on a train all of a sudden, and I left…It was a bummer that somebody allowed their own personal feelings to come in the way of what was best for a story. I’m glad that person’s gone, and they’ve resolved so many of the issues on the set that were because of him.”

-Meanwhile, I thought I was finally free of all CW superhero shows save Legends, but Regina King has announced she’s developing a Black supernatural drama called Slay for the network. Just when I think I’m out…

-Tenet’s flop helped spur a mass exodus on the movie release calendar. As a result, War With Grandpa and rereleases of Star Wars the 1993 Halloween classic Hocus Pocus have been atop the box office charts in recent weeks.

-Meanwhile, as confusing as it is to hear studios release news of upcoming films when the industry is in freefall, Warner Bros just announced a Mad Max spinoff called Furiosa starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

Sandra Bullock just signed on to a romance-action film about a romance author who discovers that a fictional city she had written about is real, with her Proposal costar Ryan Reynolds being eyed for a part. I want this!

-Netflix’s new high school drama Grand Army, which drops this weekend, is getting great reviews, with comparisons to My So-Called Life.

-Though I’m reluctant to start a new Netflix series. This is a good piece on how Netflix keeps cancelling its most interesting and ambitious shows and why this (combined with the quantity-over-quality strategy) is becoming a big a problem.

-Also, Channing Dungey is stepping down as Netflix’s VP of original programming. There’s talk that she’s a contender for the job of president of Warner Bros. TV.

-In other big industry shakeups, Disney says its ‘primary focus’ for entertainment is streaming as it announces a major reorganization.

-I’m not sure I trust the site that’s reporting that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have signed on for Spider-Man 3, but it’s wild if true.

Princess Diana meets the Queen in the new trailer for season 4 of The Crown.

Kristen Stewart Talks about Being “Hounded” About Her Sexuality

Kristen Stewart In Style Queer

Kristen Stewart gets candid in the new issue of InStyle, opening up about the pressure she once felt to label and discuss her sexuality in public. “I did feel an enormous pressure, but it wasn’t put on me by the [LGBTQA+] community. People were seeing those pictures and reading these articles and going, “Oh, well, I need to be shown.” I was a kid, and I felt personally affronted. Now I relish it. I love the idea that anything I do with ease rubs off on somebody who is struggling. That shit’s dope!”

-Also, Stewart looked amazing when she appeared (remotely) at this week’s Chanel show.

Kelly Rowland is pregnant with her second child — and debuted her baby bump on the cover of Women’s Health.

-SNL has dis-invited this week’s musical guest, country singer Morgan Wallen, after social media posts surfaced of him partying and kissing strangers this past weekend, despite’s SNL’s covid protocols. He said on Instagram: “My actions this weekend were pretty shortsighted and they obviously affected my longterm goals and dreams…I think I’ve lost myself a little bit. I’ve tried to find joy in the wrong places, and it’s left me with less joy.” Dude has a new baby, so it’s a bad look all around.

-Meanwhile, Maya Rudolph says shooting the SNL season premiere was “really difficult” due to the new protocols. “Everything was slower, it was harder to get things to cards, I didn’t really get my lines until air. So I had never run that sketch until we did it live.”

-This is nice: Ryan Reynolds is helping make sure students in Nunavut are properly dressed for winter by partnering with Canada Goose to send parkas to the more than 300 students at the Inuujaq School in Arctic Bay.

-I hope starring in the next Mission Impossible movie doesn’t get Hayley Atwell tangled up in Tom Cruise rumours, but I do hope it makes her a big star. Despite being in the Captain America films, I don’t think she’s as well-known as she should be.

Betty Gilpin wrote a eulogy for Glow for Vanity Fair, and man, every time I read anything she writes (whether it’s a tweet about being nominated for an award or an essay about having “pea-sized confidence with watermelon-sized boobs”), I just want to read more. She’s so, so funny. (“Panicked that I was never going to be able to support myself as an actor, a decade ago I did an arc on a show where you saw my areolas before you saw my face. Avoiding eye contact with ancestors’ ghosts, I bravely signed on to press my taint against the lens every four frames for Chipotle and weed money, while the other actors did real scenes in between.”) Get this woman a book deal!

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are heading back to the set of The Morning Show, which is scheduled to resume production this month. Steve Carell is also heading back for season 2 which is … a whole lotta why?

Sarah Jessica Parker wrote a passionate plea to save Broadway in Variety, saying “New York especially needs theatre because so many New Yorkers need theatre — the thousands of people employed directly and indirectly by the industry, doing collateral work, from the servers at the surrounding restaurants to the people responsible for dry-cleaning costumes.”

-A source tells Us Weekly: “Demi [Lovato] has been acting as though she was never engaged to Max [Ehrich] and that their relationship never happened. She is still not speaking to him and fully cut him out.” Well, yeah. That’s called moving on.

Macaulay Culkin‘s covid mask is perfection.

Armie Hammer was Jimmy Kimmel’s first in-person guest to be in the studio since covid started — and he wore a spacesuit for some reason.  Still looked better than he did in last month’s GQ.

Ruby Rose says her back injury was not the primary reason for her Batwoman departure. “We went into lockdown with COVID and thinking of in quarantine and locked down, there was a lot of thought and reflection and kind of everyone did it. We sort of mutually agreed that probably what was best for the show, um, at the time was they go in a different direction and I go in a different direction.” That is a very nice spin on it.

-I was really hoping that today’s news from The Postal Service would be an new album. Instead it’s a (admittedly funny) video about voting. In it, the band holds Zoom auditions with Anne Hathaway, Kenny G, Weird Al, Slash, Huey Lewis, Bret McKenzie, Vanessa Bayer, Ishmael Butler, Patton Oswalt and more.

Malin Akerman and Bella Thorne join an underground, all-female fight club in the trailer for Chick Fight.

-Here’s the latest trailer for News Of The World starring Tom Hanks, arriving in theatres on Christmas Day (supposedly).

-Hollywood is really excited because the trailer for Ryan Reynolds’ new movie Free Guy got 55 million views in 24 hours. Yeah, that doesn’t mean people will flock to theatres to watch it.

 

Anne Heche On Ex Ellen Degeneres

Anne-Heche-Ellen-DeGeneres

-If anyone was going to spill the tea about Ellen Degeneres, I expected it to be her ex, Anne Heche. But in a new interview, she says: “Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honour,” adding “I haven’t spoken to Ellen in years. I’d listen to the people who have.” She also praised a pair of male costars: “There have been two men who fought for me to be seen for my talent and not my headlines: Alec Baldwin and Harrison Ford.”

Ryan Reynolds has sold his American Aviation Gin business in a deal worth up to $610 million.

Ryan also recorded a message for BC after the province saw an uptick in cases among young people due to an increase of parties: “I hope that young people in BC don’t kill my mom or David Susuki…or each other. Let’s not kill anyone! I think that’s reasonable.”

-Meanwhile, Seth Rogen tweeted: “People of British Columbia! Please do not go out to parties and BBQs and other large gatherings! The COVID is still out there! It’s more fun to hang out alone and smoke weed and watch movies and TV shows anyway! Do that instead! Thank you!”

-On Saturday, Taylor Swift took to Twitter to accuse Trump of engaging in a “calculated dismantling” of the US Postal Service, adding he’s trying to “blatantly cheat” the election. Interestingly, this comes when she’s trying to make a foray back into country music.

-Meanwhile, Taylor revealed all the easter eggs in her “Cardigan” video.

Cardi B had a 16-min Zoom chat with Joe Biden and asked him about healthcare and education for all, and police brutality.

Angelina Jolie talked about the “chaos” of her household during covid: “I’ve been on high level meetings where there’s dogs and balls and kids and things. You kind of just enjoy being human with everybody else and laughing through it.” She says they’ve also been enjoying movie nights. “Well, we’re all there. So, all six kids, my oldest son’s home from Korea. Lots of popcorn and just like really every family, we’re just pajamas, robes, snacks.”

Sharon Stone is urging everyone to wear their masks as she shared that her sister is battling the coronavirus, saying “One of you Non-Mask wearers did this.” She added that her sister’s husband is also fighting for his life, that her grandmother and godmother have already died of covid, and that healthcare workers and others can’t get tested in Montana, where her family lives.

-The Crown has found their Princess Diana for the final two seasons: Elizabeth Debick. I love her and this is exquisite casting.

-I love how much attention the Williams Twins are getting with their YouTube videos. Alicia Keys is the latest to shout them out for their review of her “Fallin'”.

-The @ArmasUpdates account does not seem to exist anymore and I am bereft.

-With production not yet returning on most shows, networks are having to get creative in how they film and where they find content to fill prime-time holes this fall TV season.
