Celebs Praise Jennifer Lopez in Instyle

Jennifer-Lopez-InStyle

Jennifer Lopez’s Instyle cover features quotes about her from a ton of costars and celebrities (though, noticeably, nothing from A-Rod). Among the famous friends singing her praises are Charlize Theron (“To call her a triple threat doesn’t come close to describing her—she’s all of the threats!”), Michelle Obama (“What impresses me the most about her is her unwavering commitment to leverage those gifts and use her platform to give voice to the voiceless”), Matthew McConaughey (“Extremely deliberate, intentional, fully choreographed, and self-aware, she even knows how to make accidents look like accidents”), and — most hilariously — Ben Affleck (“Where are you keeping the fountain of youth? Why do you look the same as you did in 2003 and it kind of looks like I’m in my 40s…at best?”).

-It’s Thandiwe, Not Thandie. Thandiwe Newton reclaimed her name in British Vogue, explaining the “w” was left out in her first acting credit and it stuck. “That’s my name. It’s always been my name. I’m taking back what’s mine.”

-I don’t know if I’m just getting used to the at-home fashions or if stars/stylists are really learning how to bring it, but the SAG Awards outfits were some of the best we’ve seen in ages.

-Last night’s SAG Awards marked the first time in its history that all four film acting categories went to actors of color. It also revealed how wide open the Oscar race really is. Is this what it looks like when stars can’t campaign? I love it!

-Rapper DMX overdosed on Friday night which triggered a heart attack, and the prognosis is not looking good.

Regé-Jean Page will not be returning for Bridgerton season two, saying he was only contracted for a one-season arc. I mean, he’s right, and I don’t think it’s as big of a deal as people seem to be making it out to be. The second season follows the second book, which means the main focus was always going to be on Anthony and Kate, so Simon and Daphne would be pushed to the background regardless. A couple of cameos would have been nice (especially in the Pall Mall scene), but I hope his absence doesn’t keep people away from the show. Not only will this season focus on the book series’ BEST couple, it will be led by an openly gay actor and a British-Indian actress — and that’s pretty effing boss.

Apple Martin roasts her mom Gwyneth Paltrow‘s morning routine in a new TikTok: “She just prances around the bathroom putting on her millions of Goop glow products…Then she gets to working making some more vagina eggs and vagina candles and vagina perfumes. Just everything vagina.”

-In a new video on her YouTube page, Hailey Bieber chats with a psychologist about the negative effects of social media on mental health.

-Reviews for HBO’s The Nevers suggest the show requires some benefit-of-the-doubt. It’ll be interesting to see what the next batch of episodes looks like since Joss Whedon left the show, because according to Variety, in its current state it “bears so many of his narrative and stylistic hallmarks that it might as well be playing Whedon Bingo.”

-One of the only shows I’m currently watching right now, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, has pretty much lost me. This week’s episode was especially rough.

Armie Hammer has departed The Minutes, a Broadway play which was originally set to debut last year and is now on track to resume production during the 2021-2022 season.

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Circle season 2.

Jamie Kennedy did not seem prepared to be grilled about his role in an anti-abortion movie.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost popped up on RuPaul’s Drag Race to offer advice.

-The final Black Widow trailer arrived this weekend.

-The biggest buzzed Marvel trailer right now is the new one that dropped today for the Loki series on Disney+, which is coming this summer. It looks really, really good.

 

Harry Styles Fed the Fish

-God, could you imagine being a Harry Styles fan and finding out that while you out, your dad let him in and he wandered around your house leaving you cute notes? This sounds like the start of a rom-com.

-Speaking of rom-coms, someone made a rom-com trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor and I want to watch that version of the show.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost got married over the weekend, and they broke the news via Meals on Wheels’ Instagram with a plea to donate. Which I kind of love?

-Gem of a human Paul Rudd handed out cookies to people in the rain waiting in line to vote in Brooklyn.

-Halloween may be cancelled for many of us, but not for the famous ones. George Clooney and Rande Gerber have tricked out a Casamigos truck and will drop off booze to their pals.

-Well, well, well. A couple of days ago when Stephen Amell talked about getting covid despite how “safe” he’s been, I mentioned that I’ve noticed some non-safe looking activity on his and his friends’ social media. And now a source is telling Page Six that he hosted a birthday party for his wife in Palm Springs (which he presumably flew to from shooting Heels in Atlanta). One of his BFFs also announced she has it, as did his wife, who did an IG Live yesterday but claims she has no idea where she got it.

Karlie Kloss and husband Joshua Kushner are expecting their first child.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom sang a song about voting and it was cute. Very out of tune, but cute.

Nicole Kidman continues to sign onto TV shows and I love this for her. She’s star and produce Amazon’s Things I Know to Be True.

-Here’s the full trailer for the new season of The Crown, which sees Olivia Colman‘s Queen clash with Gillian Anderson‘s Margaret Thatcher.

-Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams leaves her sheltered life with her mom to hunt down her father’s killer in the Two Weeks To Live trailer.

Tatiana Maslany Keeps Us Guessing About She-Hulk

-Remember a month ago when I mentioned that I was on a Zoom call with Tatiana Maslany and she said she’s not doing She-Hulk? She just said it again and the headlines are everywhere. My guess remains the same: that she’s doing it but sworn to keep it under wraps until there’s an official announcement. The original story in the trades was based on “sources” — and Scarlett Johansson was denying a Black Widow movie up until about a month before filming started.

Armie Hammer is now seeking joint custody and requesting his ex return to the U.S. from the Cayman Islands. Elizabeth Chambers filed for divorce from Hammer in July, seeking primary physical custody of their two children.

-I’m sure the Daily Mail is just reaching for headlines, but I’m choosing to believe this story about Dominic West being terrorized by squirrels.

Taryn Manning is claiming DWTS invited her to join the cast “many times,” but the show has a different take: “Her representation attempted to pitch her to us a while back and we kindly passed. So her claim that she was asked to join ‘DWTS’ once, never mind many times, is completely false.”

Jacob Tremblay portrays a young Justin Bieber in the new video for “Lonely.” This is scary good casting.

-Meanwhile, Bieber is this week’s musical guest on SNL, with Issa Rae hosting.

-Fans put a damper on Bieber‘s big week by camping outside his home. He posted on IG Stories: “This is not a hotel. It’s my home. How do you convince yourself it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment?”

Dwyane Wade was walking on the beach and happened to pass by a proposal. His reaction is everything.

-In a charming new interview with The Ringer, Adam Brody discusses how many people re-watching The OC now find his character mean (“I totally understand that about Seth and I can even see it without seeing it again. I mean, I don’t recall him doing anything brave and I don’t just mean physically brave”) and talks about being a feminist (“I’m not an activist, but I do feel that I’m pretty aware and my wife [Leighton Meester] helps me a lot. My wife is a feminist and has been for a long time, so she helps me a lot. Although I think we’ve all had our eyes opened even more so these last handful of years, but we’re all still learning and certainly I am. I like to think of myself as a feminist. I don’t know if I fully live up to that or not”).

-Speaking of charming interviews, You’re The Worst’s Chris Greere interviews former costar Aya Cash about her role on The Boys.

Harvey Weinstein‘s lawyers claim he will likely die in prison if not freed. [*crickets*]

Miley Cyrus is reviving her Backyard Sessions for a special episode of MTV’s Unplugged series. This is such a clever way to do content in quarantine.

-I don’t believe a digit of Netflix’s ratings reports, but they are saying that Ratched is the most watched original program in 2020. I wonder if even they care that it was so horribly received?

-Bridgerton is being made into a series by Shonda Rhimes? Yes, please!

Ethan Hawke had to shoot his appearance on Desus & Mero last night from an empty hotel ballroom in Ireland because he was having wi-fi issues in his room. Still managed to be charming af tho.

David Byrne’s American Utopia debuts on Crave this weekend and it’s so, so good. It’s directed by Spike Lee and is one of my fave films of the year so far. It’s joyous and thought-provoking and made me get up and dance multiple times (watching films at home is one benefit of movies going straight to streaming).

Charlie Hunnam plays a bare-knuckle boxer reluctantly traveling across the country with his brother for one last fight in Jungleland. It took me halfway through the trailer for me to realize I saw this at last year’s TIFF. I really liked the girl from The End of the F**king World in it.
