-Engagement rumours surrounding David Harbour and Lily Allen have kicked into high gear after her latest IG post featured a ring.

-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.”

Ana de Armas Gets Her Turn

Ana de Armas vanity fair

-I was actually surprised by the lack of coverage Ana de Armas was getting after her scene-stealing performance in Knives Out, so it’s great to see her land a Vanity Fair cover story. (Written by Sloane Crosley, no less!)

-In her new Variety cover story, Kerry Washington talks steering her own career after Scandal, and tackling the challenge of Little Fires Everywhere.

-If you can ignore the weird flourishes from the author, this is a good NYT interview with Ben Affleck on his struggle to stay sober.

Britney Spears‘ Womanizer video from 2008 is suddenly and inexplicably one of YouTube’s most viewed videos — and no one knows why.

-This is a good piece on how The Flash hired its first black showrunner in season six, and it’s finally acknowledging that Iris is black. “I feel more comfortable bringing up concerns that I have, and I feel like those concerns are received and listened to a little differently,” Candice Patton says, adding that she’s addressed longstanding issues like the way in which her skin was lit during scenes or having access to artists equipped to style her hair and do her makeup.

-I tend to not love celeb couple ads, but Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr‘s Cascade commercial is very cute and I want them to have all the success in the world so let’s just allow it.

Dwayne Wade was on GMA today and talked about daughter Zaya: “I knew that I had to check myself. I have been a person in the locker room who has been part of the conversation that has said the wrong phrases and wrong words…As I got older and watched my daughter grow, I had to go look at myself in the mirror and say: Who are you?”

Jameela Jamil‘s boyfriend James Blake has jumped to her defense.

Stephanie Beatriz cried while meeting Dan Levy on Kelly Clarkson’s talk show, and praised his impact on the queer community. Then he praised hers. Then everyone was crying and it was all very adorable.

-I haven’t really loved Vanity Fair’s Lie Detector test segments because most of the questions are such softballs but the Noah Centineo and Lana Condor one is actually great — mostly because they lie.

-First Alison Brie alluded to it on Reddit, and now Yvette Nicole Brown is hinting at a Community movie on Twitter.

-We’re already talking about next year’s possible Oscar contenders? Settle down, Hollywood.

Jessie J and Channing Tatum having impromptu dance parties to Sam Smith songs is very cute.

Angelina Jolie’s Crush on Michelle Pfeiffer

-I am very much here for this clip of Michelle Pfeiffer asking Angelina Jolie ‘Was I your teen crush?” and Jolie responding “Actually…yeah definitely…when you sang ‘Cool Rider’ you were very hot. And Scarface.” Same, girl.

-Every bit of this Antonio Banderas profile in GQ is great, but the part that’s especially great is when he’s asked a simple question about voicing animated characters and then it turns into a thoughtful answer on how Hollywood uses race to construct its villains.

-I wish Gwendoline Christie wore this dress to the Emmys instead of that Jesus-y robe thing. This one has me 🤤

-The reviews are in and though some critics question the film’s timing and message, everyone seems to agree that Joaquin Phoenix delivers an outstanding performance in Joker. (I do find it interesting that a lot of the negative reviews are coming from female critics.)

-Whoa, Jimmy Kimmel caught Joaquin Phoenix completely off guard last night when the actor was talking about what a light, happy set Joker was and Kimmel said “It’s interesting that you say that because Todd [Phillips] sent an outtake reel” and then proceeded to show a clip of Phoenix angrily muttering to cinematographer Lawrence Sher: “The constant whispering, just shut the f**k up, dude. I’m trying to, like, find something real. I know you started the f**king Cher thing, Larry, f**king making fun of me, like I’m a f**king diva. It’s not even an insult. Cher, really? Singer, actor, dancer, fashion icon? How is that a f**king insult? F**k it, I can’t do this” before walking off the set. The show cut back to a cringing, visibly uncomfortable Phoenix. “This is so embarrassing. Yeah look, sometimes movies get intense because you’re a lot of people in a small space and you’re trying to find something so you can feel intense. But that was supposed to be private. I’m a little embarrassed. I’m sorry about that. I’m sorry you guys had to see that…There’s no excuse for that. You shouldn’t talk to people [like that]…My publicist will issue a formal statement tomorrow. Can we move on?” Whew lordy, watching temperamental dudes to get called out for crap that women could never get away with is like my Super Bowl!

-On a similar note, I appreciate all the shitty Todd Phillips’ quotes and clips that are surfacing.

-I can’t stop watching videos of Hailey Beiber trying to avoid being snapped walking down the aisle by photographers in helicopters above by hiding under a tent carried slowly to the ceremony.

-Despite signing a new deal with Amazon, Phoebe Waller-Bridge says she has no immediate plans to bring back Fleabag. “I like the idea of coming back to her, well me, when I’m 50. Because I feel like she would have had more life then, and god knows what she would’ve gotten up to. Seeing a character like that in a later stage of life is exciting but I think for now, she’s been through enough. We gotta let her go.” Thank gawd.

-The story about the Canadian woman who went hiking and was stalked by a cougar until she scared it off with Metallica has hit the late night talk show circuit.

-This video of Lilly Singh teaching Americans Canadian/Toronto slang is all kinds of perfect.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is shilling for Colgate (you get that toothpaste money, girl) and talking about the possibility of a Buffy reboot: “You know, I think ultimately you realize that you tell a story at the time, and then you close that chapter. For me, I think it’s best because I’m at a different point in my life than I was when I told that story. So, any incarnation that I did now would be different anyways? So, I’m not sure if they totally work together.”

Will Smith just dropped a limited-edition clothing line inspired by The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. 1993 me would be very excited about this. 2019 me is like “huh.”

-This Canadian 90s pop culture quiz brought back so many memories.
