harpers-april-2018-jennifer-lopez

-The photography for Jennifer Lopez‘s new Harper’s Bazaar spread is amazing. The interview is just ok (though I do appreciate the fact that she has a pillow that says “I am youthful and timeless at every age”).

-If you’re looking for a good read, check out this Terry Crews interview, in which he talks about how his relationship to Hollywood changed since he joined the #MeToo movement. “I walk in the room, and the room is split right down the middle…People don’t understand that Hollywood is a very violent place. The best way to put it is that it’s like a plantation. You use extreme violence. You see a lot of people who never work again. For even speaking up the whole thing is that they cut your head off so that the next person doesn’t speak.”

-Also, I love that all the comments on the article are so supportive. When does the internet ever do that?

Blake Lively is having more fun than you.

-When the lead actress of your TV show says “For me the bucket list is checked. I mean, if you guys killed me off tomorrow, I feel like I had a good run,” you might have a problem.

-I don’t think Star stories usually hold a lot of weight, but this one on Justin Theroux certainly lines up with a lot of blind items.

Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin are lost at sea in the Adrift trailer.

Ben Affleck‘s image rehab efforts just got dialed up to 11: there are photos of him with a stray puppy.

-Aw nuts. Nicholas Brendon (who played Xander on Buffy) is back in the news again, this time for being arrested for violating a protective order and felony domestic violence after an alleged attack on his girlfriend.

-It what may be the worst non-apology I’ve seen in a long time, David Cross now says he was probably doing his “Southern redneck character” when he met Charlyne Yi.

-Meanwhile, Mayim Bialik shows us how it’s done by issuing a formal apology for her controversial NYT op-ed: “Let me say clearly and explicitly that I am very sorry.”

-After weeks of silence, Quentin Tarantino (the director most closely tied to Harvey Weinstein), has spoken out, admitting he knew what was happening but still did nothing. “I knew enough to do more than I did. There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things. I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”

-The New Yorker offers an inside look into what it was like at the Weinstein Co. on the days both exposés were released. Staff members are now asking for every NDA — including theirs — to be dismissed so everyone can speak openly.

-Meanwhile, this is a great article on how Hollywood must go some much further than just stopping one man.

Natasha Lyonne is the latest actress to come forward with a story of assault.

Sterling K. Brown Got To Finish His Emmy Speech

-It was BS (and incredibly bad optics) to let Nicole Kidman speak forever, but to play Sterling K Brown off in the middle of his Emmy speech. But he finished it backstage and it was glorious.

-Feud’s Jackie Hoffman having a fake meltdown after losing to Laura Dern was my favourite part of the Emmy’s.

-Also, did anyone else notice that when Kidman talked about her kids in her speech, she left out the ones she’d adopted with Tom Cruise? Do you think they’ve cut ties with her completely for being an SP?

-Overall, the Emmy’s were great. When Game of Thrones isn’t allowed to play, you end up with a bunch of diverse winners like Riz Ahmed, Donald Glover, and Lena Waithe making history, Hulu breaking through big time, and female-focused fare taking the lead. (That Sean Spicer appearance was total crap, though.)

-This photo of Elisabeth Moss celebrating with Jon Hamm makes me happy.

-I was so annoyed by Shailene Woodley‘s tone-deaf quotes on the red carpet. Maybe don’t slam TV at an event celebrating TV, mm-kay?

-Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri got a major boost for its Oscar prospects on Sunday by winning TIFF’s People’s Choice Award. I voted for it. (I will say it’s weird that no one seems to be talking about the fact that the TIFF app — which is where you vote — did not list Call Me By Your Names as an option. It was clearly a bug, but I bet the results would have been different if the app worked.)

-Here’s our first look at David Tennant and Michael Sheen in Good Omens, Amazon’s Neil Gaiman series. I can’t wait!

-Audiences hate Jennifer Lawrence‘s ‘Mother!’, giving it a CinemaScore of F. Do you know how hard it is to get a score that low?!

Leah Remini says Jada Pinkett Smith is secretly a Scientologist and that Tom Cruise likes to host adult games of hide and seek.  Sounds totally normal…

Kelly Clarkson is so not a fan of Dr. Luke that she turned down potential millions in royalties just they wouldn’t share a writing credit. Bless her.

Amber Tamblyn capped off her killer week with an op-ed in the New York Times in response to being called a liar by actor James Woods.  “I have been afraid of speaking out or asking things of men in positions of power for years.”

-Wait wait wait — there’s a tribute album for Tegan & Sara‘s The Con? And CHVRCHES does a cover of “Call It Off”? Just take my money now.

-Speaking of trailers, I’m not sure if I can handle a new Blake Lively one on a Monday. Knock yourself out, though:
