Gwyneth Paltrow Mocked For Claiming She Popularized Yoga

Gwyneth Paltrow yoga

-Yoga may have been around since ancient India, but according to Gwyneth Paltrow, she’s responsible for it’s current popularity. In her WSJ magazine cover story, she says “Forgive me if this comes out wrong, but I went to do a yoga class in LA recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, ‘Have you ever done yoga before?’ And, literally, I turned to my friend, and I was like, ‘She has this job because I’ve done yoga before.'” Needless to say, that quote is NOT going over well on the internet.

Cardi B confirmed she and Offset have called it quits, posting in an IG video that “things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time” and they “grew out of love.” Meanwhile, he commented on the post “y’all won,” which is really sad.

-Remember how incredibly charming Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg were when they presented together at the Emmys? Now they’ll get to reprise their chemistry when they host the Golden Globes together. (This awesome news has totally overshadowed today’s pleasant but less exciting announcement that Kevin Hart will host the Oscars.)

-Netflix doesn’t release ratings but reports say Daredevil was Netflix’s 4th biggest show this fall — and still it got cancelled.

-Also, this is a good analysis on what losing Friends might mean for Netflix.

-The new promo for Jason Momoa’s SNL episode is already better than the last three episodes combined.

Tom Cruise is doing god’s work by urging everyone to turn off their TV’s motion smoothing. (Challenge: when you visit other people’s homes over the holidays, try to sneak into their TV’s settings and make sure it’s turned off. It’ll be your gift to them.)

Chloe Grace Moretz was spotted kissing model Kate Harrison.

Hannah Gadsby kicked off the Women In Entertainment ceremony with a powerful opening speech: “Men are not creepy. Spiders are creepy. Rejecting the humanity of a woman is not creepiness. It is misogyny.”

-Ooh boy, the latest report on Les Moonves reveals it was way worse than originally reported.  CBS’s lawyers’ 59-page report alleges that Moonves repeatedly lied to investigators and destroyed evidence, that CBS had an employee “on call” to perform oral sex on Moonves, that he received oral sex from four CBS employees that appeared to be “transactional,” and that members of CBS’s board knew about Moonves’s alleged sexual misconduct way back in 2007 but did nothing to stop him.

-People got SOOO angry about that Cut story I linked to yesterday on how Priyanka Chopra is scamming Nick Jonas. I assumed it was a satire but others didn’t — including Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, who tweeted angrily about it. It eventually got taken down, so I guess it really was a story that actually woobified Jonas. Which is so odd.

-It seems like this has been a week of bad takes. This one on peak TV from a few days ago still makes me angry because it’s so misguided, while the editor apologized for this piece that claimed Ariana Grande‘s “thank u, next” video was “anti queer”.

-Meanwhile Grande has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year.

-I’m really digging the new trailer for next week’s CW crossover. All their superhero shows feel really bleak right now, so I’m down for some Freaky Friday-style body swapping shenanigans. I want a whole sequence about Barry discovering he suddenly has abs.

-As much as I like superhero TV, I don’t really watch the animated stuff, especially on the big screen. But the way that everyone I know is RAVING about the new Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse film has me curious.

-Good on Dakota Johnson for asking Armie Hammer probing questions that giant line of coke he does on Sorry To Bother You.

-Don’t try to challenge Saoirse Ronan on Bridesmaids trivia; she’ll win.

-Meawhile, Ronan is fierce in the Mary Queen of Scots trailer.

Dakota Johnson on Chris Hemsworth’s Body: “It’s Insane”

Dakota-Johnson-Vogue-Australia-October-2018

Dakota Johnson is promoting both Suspiria and Bad Times at El Royale — which landed her this gorg cover on Vogue Australia. She talks about El Royale costar Chris Hemworth and how he spent most of the shoot shirtless: “Oh my god. It’s such a distraction…No-one on set could pay attention to anything else: it was so shocking, not in a sexual way at all, just, like, scientifically, how is it possible to look like that? Crazy! Then he would eat a bowl of Smarties and you’re like: ‘You’re an asshole, f*ck you!’ I don’t eat anything sweet: I eat green things for three months in order to fit into a pair of jeans. And he eats whatever the f*ck he wants and looks like he was literally chiselled out of marble – it’s insane.”

Rihanna has written an op-ed in the Guardian about the global education crisis: “When it comes to helping the world’s poorest children, as well as the communities and societies in which they live, I’m still learning – and I need others to join me on the journey and use their voices alongside mine.”

Elizabeth Olsen‘s new show Sorry For Your Loss debuts tonight on Facebook Watch to good reviews. The only issue? No one really knows how to watch TV episodes on Facebook yet. (I work in social media all day and I had to look it up, too). Here’s how to watch it on your app, or you could go straight to the show’s episode page.

Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt have officially signed on to a Mad About You revival because everything old is new again.

-Holy moly, this sounds like my jam: Paul Feig is directing an Emma Thompson-penned holiday rom-com that’s based on the Wham! song “Last Christmas” and stars Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Crazy Rich Asians’ Henry Golding. All of those words are wonderful!

Will Smith and Idris Elba discovered what Nicole and I figured out last year: that sabering champagne bottles with big swords in fancy restaurants is super fun.

-I love that Issa Rae threw a pre-Emmy yacht party for black nominees and her Insecure cast/crew — and at one point she took all the guys’ shirts.

-Speaking of the Emmys, we recapped the best and worst dresses here.

-Marvelous Mrs. Maisel swept the comedy Emmys, which led to all of my coworkers asking me today if it’s any good. I watched the first half of the season and found it very charming — but was not compelled to finish it. It’s cute, but if you have other comedies to catch up on, I would absolutely recommend prioritizing Atlanta or Barry ahead of it.

-Breakout comedian Hannah Gadsby subtweeted her nastiest Nanette critics (including Michael Che) when she presented an award and now I love her even more.

-Someone — but not Donald Glover or Lakeith Stanfield — came to the Emmys dressed as Teddy Perkins, aka the most terrifying character Atlanta has ever seen.

This photo of Handmaids stars Yvonne Strahoski, Ann Dowd and Alexis Bledel when they all lost in the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama was adorable.

Sandra Oh introducing her parents to Milo Ventimiglia on the red carpet was wonderful. (This is exactly the only person my mom would want to meet too.)

-It’s never been more obvious that Jesse Plemons is punching above his weight than the photos of him with Kirsten Dunst last night. Get it, Landry!

-This was the lowest rated Emmys ever (though weirdly, not here in Canada).

-This is a good piece on how Woody Allen and Soon-Yi tried to use that New York magazine piece to shut down allegations against him — and failed completely.

-Here’s our first peek at the 90s-set Captain Marvel — complete with Blockbuster and Brie Larson punching an old lady in the face. The fade from “her” to “hero”? Yeah, that’s good stuff.

The Bachelor in Paradise Mess Gets Messier

bachelor-in-paradise

-A Bachelor in Paradise crew member provided a horrific, detailed account of the alleged sexual misconduct, claiming that the female contestant was so out of it that she went limp and kept sliding under the water. This just keeps getting worse and worse. And of course, the slut shamers are out in full force.

-Meanwhile, the male contestant is reportedly demanding to see the footage as he believes it will exonerate him.

-According to Chris Harrison, no decisions have been made about Bachelor in Paradise’s future, but I can’t imagine them ever coming back after this.

-It sounds like Jennifer Lawrence has nabbed the coveted September cover of Vogue.

-Yes, Slate, Katy Perry’s new album is a hot mess. No, Slate, it is not our fault.

-Also, Katy Perry says Josh Groban is “the one who got away.”

-Last night, Stephen Colbert grilled Oliver Stone on his lenient interview with Putin and things got hella awkward, especially when the audience started openly laughing at his answers.

-Not surprisingly, the rumours that Tom Hardy may be cast as Jafar in the live-action Aladdin did not go over well.

-Glow, Alison Brie‘s Netflix’s comedy about female wrestlers, is getting really good reviews. THR says it’s “worth stepping into the ring for,” EW praises its “heartbreaking glitter-blasted humanity,” and TVLine says it “puts ’80s kitsch in a hilarious headlock.”

-Speaking of Netflix comedies, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt has been renewed for season 4. I’m not through the new season, but I’m loving what I’ve seen so far. (The line “are you marching in a Give Back the Night rally?” made me laugh so hard on a plane recently, I woke up the woman next to me.)

Sandra Oh is returning to TV to star in BBC’s Killing Eve, created by Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge. God, I love all of those words!

Justin Bieber‘s fans were not happy with him when he said he couldn’t sing “Despacito” because he didn’t know the lyrics.

-At the Rough Night premiere, Scarlett Johansson hung out with the 72-year-old woman who went viral after her grandson posted a photo of her when she was younger and she looked just like the actress.

-Meanwhile, Scarlett was once again spotted with SNL’s Colin Jost.

Demi Moore, Leslie Jones, and Demetrius Shipp Jr. played charades with Fallon last night.

-I haven’t really looked at Salma Hayek the same way since that disastrous luncheon earlier this year, but she’s been telling some very funny stories on her latest talk show tour.

-If there’s a prize for “best walking onto a talk show stage,” Kate McKinnon just won it.

-The average Netflix user has streamed almost three full Adam Sandler movies. Humanity is doomed.

-I’m probably supposed to hate this dress on Nicole Kidman, but there’s something about the way she’s been leaning into the witchy fairy look lately that I can’t help but appreciate.

-The trailer for the Whitney Houston doc, which reportedly sheds light on rumored relationship with Robyn Crawford, has arrived.

-This is a great piece on how reviewers treated Gal Gadot when writing about Wonder Woman. Basically, we need more female and POC critics.

-Have you and your friends fought over the NYT’s list of the 25 best films of the 21st century yet? You will.

-I love Roxanne Gay. I love her. She writes some of the most searing, raw fiction out there. And her interview with Trevor Noah made me love her even more. She was heartbreakingly brave when talking about how being gang-raped at 12 led to her weight issues, and how the world treats obese people.

-Why the hell are they remaking Flatliners? And why the hell are Ellen Page and Diego Luna in it? Nina Dobrev, I get, but Page was nominated for an Oscar!
