Sandra Oh Stuns in Elle Canada

-I have fallen behind on Killing Eve because I just can’t seem to bring myself to watch much drama these days, but I’m going to revisit it eventually because Sandra Oh is perfection — even in KE seasons that aren’t. She looks stunning in her Elle Canada spread (though I wish they’d used one of the inner photos for the cover instead of the one they picked, mostly because Gugu Mbatha-Raw just wore the same top on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar.)

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy (the pair responsible for one of the most iconic photos on the internet) have split after 5 years of marriage — and the pandemic is make it extra messy. Olsen filed an emergency order, claiming in court documents she attempted to file for divorce on April 17, but was unable to do so because of the ongoing pandemic. She alleges he terminated the lease on their NYC apartment without her knowledge and the only way to prevent him from getting rid of her belongings is to file for divorce.

-This is wild: Tyler Perry is prepping to be the first person to resume TV production amid covid — and he’s doing it because he has his own giant studio which has housing for the cast and crew. He plans to shoot a full, 22-episode season in under 3 weeks. And then do it again.

Demi Moore invited ex Bruce Willis and wife Emma Heming Willis and their two daughters to join her new family portrait session. I wonder if this was to squash the talk that surfaced after Willis recently self-isolated with her instead of his wife and young kids?

Judi Dench is back to being hilarious on her grandson’s TikTok.

Reese Witherspoon just signed on to star in not one, but two Netflix romcoms and I’m here for it.

Emily Blunt Collabs with Kids for Marie Claire

Emily-Blunt-Marie-Claire

Emily Blunt covers the new issue of Marie Claire, and the interview is great — mostly because it’s conducted by an 11-year-old boy who wants to know how she overcame stuttering. The (very good) cover image was shot by a 17-year-old.

Justin Bieber‘s week on The Late Late Show continued last night. He was asked to rank wife Hailey’s friends (Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne) or eat bull penis. He was quick to rank them: Kendall, Gigi, Cara, saying “Here’s the thing … I know Kendall the best. I’ve spent the most time with Kendall. She’s a good friend of ours. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Gigi, and I haven’t spent a lot of time with Cara.” Not long after, Cara posted the video on her IG with the caption “If you have nothing against me, then why don’t you unblock me? Love you @haileybieber – he should have just eaten the bull penis.”

-The Friends reunion is officially a go. It will be in May on HBO Max.

-The writer who did the NYT profile on Ben Affleck has been sharing quotes on Twitter that didn’t make it into the article, including his thoughts on ex Jennifer Lopez’s Oscar snub: “She should have been nominated. She’s the real thing. I keep in touch periodically with her and have a lot of respect for her. How awesome is it that she had her biggest hit movie at 50? That’s fucking baller.”

-Also, Ben apparently deleted his Raya profile.

Kate and Oliver Hudson were on the Ellen show this week to promote their new podcast (which features celebs and their siblings — I would actually listen to that!) and they told a story about how Tom Cruise once crashed their party by scaling the 8-foot gate at their parents’ house.

Sandra Oh has been tapped to lead a new Netflix dramedy from Amanda Peet and the creators of Game of Thrones.

-They also updated their website to say they “will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son” — but didn’t mention who will be paying for it.

-Cindy Crawford is reportedly “very worried” about her 20-year-old son after he got a face tattoo. Same, tbh.

Jennifer Aniston Talks Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein

jennifer-aniston-variety

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!

-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!)
