Gillian Anderson Talks Taking Risks

Gillian Anderson, Nicola Coughlan and Alia Shawkat are just a few of the TV stars featured in Vanity Fair’s latest issue. All of the portraits are great, but Hugh Grant‘s is especially stunning. That man is aging like a fine wine.

-The BBC has apologized for its “deceitful” Princess Diana tell-all interview conducted by Martin Bashir in 1995 (considered a definitive bombshell for the royal family). Bashir is said to have shown fake bank statements to Diana’s brother Charles Spencer that suggested the palace staff were working against Diana and being paid to spy on her. This “deceived and induced [her brother] to arrange a meeting with Princess Diana.”

Prince Harry responded to the news, saying, “What deeply concerns me is that practices like these — and even worse — are still widespread today. Then, and now, it’s bigger than one outlet, one network, or one publication. Our mother lost her life because of this, and nothing has changed.”

-In lighter royal news, Prince William showed off a surprisingly buff arm when getting his first shot.

Angelina Jolie posed for a photo while covered with bees to raise awareness for conservation efforts.

-Did y’all know that Dermot Mulroney plays cello and has worked on movie scores, including Rogue One, Mission Impossible, Inside Out and Star Trek: Into the Darkness?

-Netflix released some Shadow & Bone bloopers.

-I also really liked this interview with Shadow and Bone author Leigh Bardugo. “Teenage girls have so much sway over culture, yet people sneer at the things that women and girls love, and are contemptuous of the creators of that content, particularly if they are women. To me, that contempt speaks to a deep fear. When you start dictating culture, money gets involved and people take notice. When I see someone deride things that women and girls find pleasure in, all I see is someone fearful that women will overtake the culture they’ve had dominion over for so long.”

KJ Apa is going to be a dad. The Riverdale star revealed on Instagram that he is expecting his first child with model Clara Berry.

This thread captures what various crew members of Person of Interest have said about working with Jim Caviezel, and it’s intense. He reportedly resisted shooting a scene in which his character saves a gay couple, and the stunt crew wouldn’t let him around sharp objects.

-Good news: Crave is going to air the Friends reunion here in Canada.

-A British reporter interviewed Ted Lasso cast members outside soccer match without realizing who they were. Delightful!

-In his Rolling Stone cover story, BTS’ V talks about his upcoming mixtape and his love of The Godfather. I just finished a book where the author thanked BTS in the acknowledgements, so I guess I’m officially the last one to join the Army.

Kate Hudson will also be in Knives Out 2. At this point, it might be easier to list who’s NOT been cast in this thing.

Chris Pratt‘s band From Parks and Recreation is releasing an album. Mouse Rat!

-People made fun of how old Ben Platt looks in the trailer for Dear Evan Hansen (where he’s playing a high schooler), and he called out “randos beings jerks about age.”

Kevin Feige now says it was a mistake to cast Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One in Doctor Strange, since she’s a white woman.

-Here’s the trailer for Only Murders In The Building, a new Hulu comedy starring Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez.

Demi Lovato Opens Up about Sexuality, Broken Engagement

Demi Lovato covers Glamour to promote her upcoming Youtube documentary and talked about her past issues with food (“I was excited that I was in a comfortable place in my body to show more skin, but what I was doing to myself was so unhealthy”), her sexuality (“I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am”), her broken engagement (“Because I denied my intuition of all the red flags that had popped up, I had no one else to blame but myself”), and her new outlook on life (“I am now making choices—for the day, and then the future—about what it is I want and what’s going to make me the happiest”).

Michael B Jordan got zen for his Men’s Health cover story.

-In Selena Gomez‘s Vogue cover story, she says she’s not done with music — yet. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously. I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ “Lose You to Love Me” I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”

-A Deux Moi blind was posted yesterday about how the first of the Armie Hammer articles would drop today, and it ended up being from Vanity Fair. It’s a good deep dive into his family’s messed up history (including an eye-popping tidbit about how his dad has a sex chair with the family crest on the seat), but when it gets to Armie himself, it goes pretty easy on him. There’s four different quotes from anonymous friends of his dismissing the allegations as simply a kink or evidence of his “dry sense of humour,” and casting suspicions on his estranged wife about the timing of the leaked DMs (despite the fact that she’s seemed remarkably restrained, considering). It also seems to downplay the allegations of assault/abuse his recent exes Paige Lorenze and Courtney Vucekovich have leveled elsewhere.

-It’s interesting to see how the royal family is responding to the Oprah interview. Prince Charles hasn’t officially said anything, though his camp tells Vanity Fair he’s “devastated” because “he feels let down by them both. There is not a racist bone in his body and to suggest otherwise is very hurtful.” Prince William was more direct about going on the defensive, telling the media “We’re very much not a racist family” and that he still hasn’t talked to Harry about it.

-In a new Harper’s Bazaar’s article Omid Scobie quotes from an email he claims that Meghan Markle sent about not making Kate Middleton cry over flower girl dresses. “Well, if we’re just throwing any statement out there now, then perhaps KP can finally set the record straight about me [not making her cry],” she reportedly wrote to an aide.

-Harry Potter’s Katie Leung says publicists instructed her to pretend she wasn’t the target of racist vitriol by fans while playing Cho Chang in the films. “I remember them saying to me… ‘just say it’s, say it’s not true, say it’s not happening.'”

-Oh god, Matthew McConaughey is rumbling about going into politics.

-I had no idea there was a spinoff of The Boys in the works, but I’m here for it.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas will announce the Oscar nominees on Monday morning. Seems like an odd choice but ok.

Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs‘ house is featured in Architecture Digest and it’s so colourful and fun.

Adam McKay is the executive producer on a new HBO doc about QAn*n. Here’s the first trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for Anya Taylor-Joy and Finn Cole‘s new film, Here Are The Young Men.

Halsey, who has been open about suffering multiple miscarriages over the years, has announced she’s expecting her first child with Alev Aydin.

-The first image of Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in the upcoming film Spencer has landed. I was skeptical of her initial casting, but the resemblance is remarkable. And if anyone can play a person reluctant about their sudden fame, it’s her.

Kim Kardashian West reportedly has her divorce exit plan “ready to go.” A source tells Us Weekly: “Kim has had all of her and Kanye’s financials and properties ready to be split, it’s a very fair deal for everyone.”

-Movie theatres have had a rough go of it lately, but AMC just erased its 20220 pandemic losses — because of Reddit.  Basically, a subreddit has decided to take down hedge funds by inflating the stock of shorted companies like AMC, Gamestop, Bed Bath & Beyond, and a few others. This thread is probably the simplest explanation of what’s going on that I’ve see so far.

Christa B. Allen will be invited to the Revenge reunion after all now that organizers said they’ve changed platforms so now they no longer have a tech-based limit of four castmembers. Um, they know we all know how Zoom works at this point, right?

Dakota Johnson says she’s used George Clooney’s name to get dinner reservations. She eventually told him and he was cool with it.

Pamela Anderson secretly tied the knot with her bodyguard on Christmas Eve — 11 months after her nonlegal wedding to Jon Peters.

-Conservatives are big mad over Alyssa Milano being cast in a Nora Roberts adaptation.

-Netflix says it has a new most-watched series in Bridgerton: a record 82 million households around the world tuned in in its first 28 days, making it the streamer’s biggest series ever. I still side-eye all of Netflix’s “ratings” releases, but hopefully this will usher in a bunch of romance adaptations.

-The first images from Netflix’s Shadow and Bone adaptation are here and I’m excited. I don’t usually read fantasy but a friend recommended that series and I devoured it.

-Who in the world in Lindsay Lohan‘s camp is trying to suppress the first bit of good press she’s gotten in years?!

Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci’s new film Supernova, in which they play a couple dealing with illness, is getting rave reviews.

-On the flip side, Netflix’s Malcolm & Marie, starring Zendaya and John David Washington, is not getting good reviews. “A screechy and solipsistic debate about identity politics that was made because Zendaya was bored during lockdown.”

-Top Gun: Maverick is still holding out for a summer release, which seems wildly optimistic.

Paul Bettany says Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon “really, really wanted” Vision to have a penis in his “birth” scene. “And everyone, [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] and [Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito], I mean everybody was like ‘I don’t know, Joss…I mean…I’m not sure…'”

Kate Moss and her daughter walked the runway together.

Cloris Leachman has passed away at 94.

-Sloan’s Chris Murphy has been diagnosed with Bell’s palsy.

-The Bold Type will end with an abbreviated fifth and final season this year.

Selena Gomez announced she’ll be releasing a whole EP in Spanish, Revelación, on March 12.

Gary Oldman and Armie Hammer star in the trailer for Crisis, Nicholas Jarecki’s Arbitrage follow-up. The timing of this is bad on so many levels.
