Chrissy Teigen people-beautiful-issue

Chrissy Teigen is on the cover of People’s Beautiful issue, and talks about her mom’s experience in America, the uptick in violence toward Asians, and her miscarriage. “We have this new home that we’re building, and this tree being planted inside. The whole reason why I wanted it was so Jack’s ashes could be in that soil, and he could be with us all the time and grow through the beautiful leaves.”

Britney Spears broke her silence on the documentary about her, saying in an IG caption “I didn’t watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well.. I still cry sometimes.” (We’re assuming she wrote that.)

-Meanwhile, her father Jamie Spears is requesting she to pay his $3 million in legal fees — which he’s using to fight against her wishes in court. He also wants to keep his monthly stipend for being her conservator, even though he’s been replaced.

Prince William is reportedly having trouble biting his tongue after Prince Harry’s tell-all interview. Let it all out, man!

-Godzilla Vs Kong hits U.S. theaters and HBO Max today, and it’s expected to have the best domestic opening since the pandemic first shuttered cinemas. It’s surprisingly well-reviewed.

Penelope Spheeris (director of Wayne’s World, Suburbia, The Beverly Hillbillies) does not mince words in this Variety interview. “A male film director can get arrested for drunk driving while on cocaine with a hooker in the car and then go ahead and get a deal the next day to direct a $50 million dollar movie. If a woman director gets arrested for drunk driving, there’s no way you work after that, you’re a danger. When you got a male director on the set and he’s a screamer and obnoxious and hard to get along with, we call that a genius. And if you have a woman who’s a screamer and hard to get along with, they call that the wrong time of the month.”

-This is a fascinating article on Randall Emmett’s direct-to-video “geezer teasers” empire, where many of Hollywood’s older, most bankable stars have found lucrative early retirement.

Brian Tyree Henry and Sonequa Martin-Green star in the super cute trailer for the romcom The Outside Story.

-The Zola trailer is everything! This makes me want to re-read the Twitter thread that this movie is based on, even though it’ll take me like 2 hours because once I start I get sucked in and cannot stop even though I know how it ends. Every. Single. Time.

-In her cover story with Health magazine, Rosario Dawson opens up about raising her 17-year-old adopted daughter from age 11. “To have a young person move in with you and to have to really consciously work through triggers and that kind of stuff is a really different thing than being pregnant and having your baby grow up in front of you—to be able to see how we’re getting closer and closer. We are a family, and it’s beautiful.”

-This is a great piece on Chadwick Boseman, who covers Vanity Fair’s Awards Extra issue.

-I have never written a story a quickly as I did this one about Charisma Carpenter calling out Joss Whedon for a hostile and abusive work environment because I didn’t need to look up any dates or details. Buffy fans have heard these rumours for years, and know what she’s previously alluded to at conventions. It felt like it was only a matter of time after Ray Fisher‘s allegations, not to mention Whedon abruptly leaving his HBO series before it premiered, for this all to come out. Since Carpenter’s tweets, Buffy alum Tara Benson called the show “a toxic environment,” Michelle Trachtenberg said Whedon’s behaviour towards her teen self was “not appropriate,” while Sarah Michelle Gellar gave a more vague statement about not wanting to be forever associated with his name.

Shia LaBeouf just parted ways with his agency, CAA. He’s been receiving treatment for over five weeks, a source tells Variety, and the actor is currently living at an inpatient facility.

-I really liked this piece on the Britney doc’s structure and why giving it a linear timeline was the correct framing device.

-Speaking of the Britney doc, I loved this piece on how Justin Timberlake should apologize for weaponizing his relationship with women. “Timberlake got to do whatever he wanted for years. Someone let this man do a full minute of mediocre beatboxing in ‘Rock Your Body’ and then we went out and bought the album and thought, Yes, I want to hear this at every wedding I go to for the rest of my life. But he didn’t do any of this alone; he just learned his lesson well: that you can be taller if you stand on the shoulders of a woman with no protection. For many of us, it was easier to just let him win.”

Esmé Bianco says Marilyn Manson whipped and scarred her on a music video set, and once chased her around their apartment with an axe.

-Our first look at Elle Fanning in season two of The Great show our Empress with a bun in the over.

Lena Dunham had to release a statement on the use of real cat corpses in her HBO Max’s show Generation, denying knowledge of the incident.

Reese Witherspoon was spotted visiting Laura Dern on her birthday.

-#FireGinaCarano is trending worldwide on social media after Gina Carano shared a post that compared being a Republican to being a Jew during the Holocaust. Seriously, how long is Disney going to let her keep doing this stuff? Don’t most talent contracts have a morality clause?

-Here’s the latest trailer for Nomadland.

Taylor Swift Wants #JusticeForAhmaud

Cobie Smulders channeled her HIMYM alter-ego Robin Sparkles and sang a stay-a-home version of “Let’s Go to the Mall.”

-I’d love to know what 50 Cent’s vision boards look like.

Hilarie Burton wrote a book, and in it she recounts the time Ben Affleck grabbed her boob on TV when she was a 19-year-old MTV host. “One of MTV’s top brass called me and said, ‘You handled that so well.’ I didn’t realize that I was being groomed—trained to be a good girl and a good sport, someone who would put up with much worse behavior.”

Kevin James makes quite a departure from his usual schlump dad/mall cop persona in the trailer for Becky. He plays a villainous escaped convict who wreaks havoc on the life of a teen and her family at a summer cottage.
