Seth Rogen Talks Kanye and Kids in GQ

seth-rogen-gq

-I love how everyone’s freaking out about how good Seth Rogen looks in his new GQ spread. He talks about Kanye West’s influence on him and why he and his wife don’t have kids. “We very much like our lives, so we will continue to put it off, it seems like, for a little while…I’ve had my friends be like, “Yeah, it really was hard on our relationship.” I’m not saying we couldn’t overcome it, but, again, we really get along and have a very good dynamic. She works very hard, and a lot as well, so when we’re together, we really try to enjoy each other and hang out.”

Rihanna’s NYT interview is a must-read: “I love being black. So, sorry for those who don’t like it.”

Celine Dion‘s episode of Carpool Karaoke aired and she was even more extra than we could have hoped for!

Johnny Depp accused ex-wife Amber Heard of having “painted-on bruises” to allege abuse, saying “She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim.” For crying out loud, her police reports had medical records in them!

Scarlett Johansson and SNL’s Colin Jost are engaged after two years of dating. This is going to be husband No. 3. (I always forget she was once married to Ryan Reynolds.)

-The Jonas Brothers are on the latest episode of Billy on the Street. “The measles are back and so are the Jonas Brothers!”

-In their new Esquire interview, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio talk about getting butterflies when meeting Luke Perry on the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it’s very sweet.

-Also, I’m sure Brad and Leo like each other — but this clip of them on the Cannes red carpet makes it look like they really, really don’t.

-Also at Cannes, Nicolas Winding Refn said his new TV show isn’t actually a TV show.  “It’s a 13-hour movie. It’s not TV!” Sigh. If movie directors don’t respect TV, maybe they should not attempt TV?

Colin Firth came to Elle Fanning’s rescue when she fainted at a Cannes party, which is so very Mr. Darcy of him.

-This is a good explanation of Hulu/Disney/Comcast divorce. Basically, I’m expecting to look back at my cable bill as “the good ole days” when we’re all paying twice for all the streaming services we’ll end up getting.

-The endless Keanu Reeves love that has come out of the John Wick 3 promo tour has been such a treat. I especially love this video of him with puppies.  There’s also this great story of him making a teen theatre employee’s day. And of course, his Ellen interview where she questioned why he and Sandra Bullock never got together when they both admitted to crushing on each other at the same time, and he responded “We were working.

-I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory, but people are really upset by the Penny twist.

-It sucks that Mayim Bialik had to shut down an Instagram commenter who ogled her for wearing a t-shirt — but do you remember the time she wrote a NYT op-ed about how she escaped harassment in Hollywood by not dressing provocatively?

-On a new podcast, Julianna Margulies said she’s done ‘protecting CBS’ over the real reason she hasn’t gone on The Good Fight — because they wouldn’t pay her what she was making on The Good Wife. “I thought, Why am I protecting CBS? I said yes. They said no. And you know what? I need to pave the way for the next one coming up…I also know for a fact that any male star who is asked to come on a spin-off of their show would’ve been offered at least $500,000…If they were to ask me to go back on The Good Fight, paying me what my salary is, [I would be there] in a heartbeat.”

Joshua Jackson has been cast as the male lead in Hulu drama Little Fires Everywhere, joining a cast that includes Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. I LOVED that book!

-The Chi has dropped actor Jason Mitchell following accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct.

-People may have hated it, but Game of Thrones’s finale set HBO’s all-time ratings record.

-Speaking of GoT, Jason Momoa live-streamed his reaction while watching the show and was NOT happy about Dany’s fate. Meanwhile, Emilia Clarke said of Dany’s turn “It comes out of f—king nowhere. I’m flabbergasted.”

Celeste Barber appears on the final webisode for Gay of Thrones and it’s perfect.

-This Is Us’ Milo Ventimiglia bonds with dog in The Art of Racing in the Rain trailer.

 

Big Little Lies Gets Big Coverage in InStyle

big-little-lies-witherspoon-kidman-kravitz

-The cast of Big Little Lies each get covers for the new issue of InStyle, in which Reese Witherspoon says she recently fought for an actress to get equal pay (“She’ll never know I made that call or had that conversation with the head of a studio. But I said to him, ‘This is the comp. This white guy over here is making this amount of money, and she’s done this, that, and the other with such success – and you’re asking for her to have a third of that. That’s not okay with me'”), while Nicole Kidman shares relationship advice (“The greatest thing our family priest told us very early on in our marriage was, ‘Always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.’ It just keeps you connected”). The video is cute too — I like Reese’s stance on visible Spanx.

Kidman also did an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, in which she says that Hugh Jackman helped her get over Tom Cruise. “When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing. They were some of my best friends through that period.”

-I tuned into most of the Billboard Music Awards and they were a trip: Madonna‘s $5 million holograms freaked me out; Paula Abdul‘s dance party proved that 56-year-olds can still move; and Drake tried to steal some of Ayra Stark’s shine.  Plus, new mom Cardi B looked amazing— but I couldn’t stop staring at her abs. Real, or real with contouring help? Either way, I’m envious!

-I can’t get enough of the footage of Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ surprise Vegas wedding after the Billboard Music Awards. The Elvis impersonator! The ring pops! Her pantsuit! I’m guessing another ceremony is coming because Turner’s previously mentioned that Maisie Williams would be her bridesmaid (Us Weekly claims there’s something being planned in France), but this is awesome.

-Speaking of surprise weddings, Jude Law just got married.

Kelly Clarkson said she was miserable during the making of From Justin to Kelly. “I cried. I talked to many lawyers and could not get out of the movie.”

Justin Bieber opened up about anxiety in a new IG post.

-It really cute that Jared Leto is pretending he’ll ever get a shot at playing the Joker again.

-Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding says his first kiss was soundtracked by a Celine Dion song and I love him even more now.

-The Met Gala takes place next week on my birthday, and the theme (Camp: Notes on Fashion) is the best gift of all!

-Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie looks amazing on the cover of British GQ.

-Lol: After the internet torched the character design in the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer, the director took to Twitter to promise that they would fix it.

-In a new interview with Shape, Anne Hathaway talks about slowing down and not filling pressure to constantly work after she had her son.

-Critics are mostly liking Dead to Me, Netflix’s new comic thriller starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini as women who befriend each other at a grief support group.

-Aw man, Chewbecca actor Peter Mayhew of Star Wars has passed away at 74.

-A Pakistani teen in 80s Britain discovers the joy of Bruce Springsteen in the trailer for the Sundance hit Blinded By The Light. People LOVE this movie.

 

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Dodges Game of Thrones Spoilers

Nikolaj-Coster-Waldau-Game-Thrones-Mens-Health

-Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau covers the new issue of Men’s Health Magazine and I love how he handles questions about what happens to his character in the final season: don’t evade when you can just make sh*t up. “I can’t tell you anything about that. He grows out his arm. His arm grows back. Yes. It grows back, but not in the way you think. It’s a claw. It comes out as a claw. No — it’s a paw.”

Samuel L. Jackson covers the new issue of Esquire, and he talks about not caring about pissing off Trump fans by speaking out (“I know how many motherf*ckers hate me. ‘I’m never going to see a Sam Jackson movie again.’ F*ck I care? If you never went to another movie I did in my life, I’m not going to lose any money. I already cashed that check. F*ck you”) and why he has no plans to retire from acting (“It’s not like I’m digging a ditch. I go on set, do some shit. I go back and sit in my trailer for two hours watching TV, eat a sandwich, read. And I go back and do ten more minutes and go sit down some more. So, yeah, it’s a great job.”)

Felicity Huffman appeared in federal court in Los Angeles this afternoon, after reportedly being arrested at home yesterday for a college entrance scheme by FBI agents with their guns drawn. A judge ordered her released on $250,000 bond. Meanwhile, Lori Loughlin turned herself into the FBI in advance of a court hearing.

-Also Laughlin’s daughter posted a lot of videos that are now coming back to bite her in the ass.

-I very much enjoyed this article on Captain Marvel and the freeing power of not giving a f*ck.

-Is everyone finally starting to believe La Toya Jackson?

-Do you think Lindsay Lohan didn’t realize that Instagram was down for everybody today??

Keira Knightley can play “Despacito” — on her teeth.

Nick Jonas got Priyanka Chopra a $200,000 Mercedes. I guess having so many sponsored weddings worked out well for them.

-SNL announced its next few hosts: Sandra Oh, Kit Harrington and Emma Stone (with musical guest BTS, which will make the kids go insane).

-I’ve pretty much given up on TV these last couple of months, but the next few weeks of premieres is stacking up to be INSANE: Game of Thrones, Killing Eve, Jane the Virgin, What We Do In Shadows, Barry, Legends of Tomorrow, The Bold Type, Fleabag, Catastrophe, The Good Fight, Fosse/Verdon, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, iZombie, Good Omens. I can already hear my PVR groaning…

-One the I might skip is Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie, which Sepinwall says is less a TV show than a checklist of things Idris Elba wanted to prove he could do on camera.

-Another that sounds skippable is Arrested Development. The second half of season five drops on Netflix this weekend and the reviews are not kind.

-Meanwhile, Fosse/Verdon, starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams, sound like it’s unskippable.

-The Good Fight is back tomorrow night and according to reviews it’s still amazing. Too bad no one’s watching it because in the US it’s only available on CBS’ All Access app. (Though if it aired on regular CBS, it probably wouldn’t have lasted this long). I like the idea this writer suggests: CBS air it on sister network Showtime, much like BBC did with AMC once it realized what it had on its hands with Killing Eve.

-Ever trailer I see of Long Shot starring Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron, I get more intrigued. Here’s the red band version.

-Speaking of Seth Rogen, he produced Good Boys starring Jacob Tremblay as a filthy-mouthed sixth grader.
