keri russell town and country

Keri Russell is on the cover of Town & Country and it’s times like this when I think I would for real fight someone if she asked me to.

-In an interview with the LA TimesCamila Cabello stresses the legitimacy of her relationship with Shawn Mendes. “That’s my boyfriend. This is real.”

Jennifer Garner posted a collage of her reactions when Katie Couric arranged a surprise phone call from film legend Julie Andrews. It’s incredibly charming.

Vulture has more info on Gabrielle Union‘s firing from America’s Got Talent last Friday. Apparently she was labelled “difficult” from the beginning when she complained about Simon Cowell constantly (and illegally) smoking indoors, and she annoyed producers when she asked drag performers about their preferred pronouns. Things got tense when producers told her they wanted to eliminate a 10-year-old black rapper and pick a group of white high kicking dancers from Texas because they needed to pick an act “America can get behind.” According to Vulture, Union is now exploring her legal options against the network. Meanwhile, both she and her husband tweeted about the firing last night.

Ellen Pompeo has also been tweeting her support for Union.

-This is such a shockingly succinct example of the male gaze it should be taught in film school. Just like this should be taught in writing classes.

-Following her emotional confession yesterday, Melissa Benoist appeared on James Corden’s show to play the cellphone game with Evan Rachel Wood.

-I love when people discover this about George Clooney.

Jennifer Aniston hosted her annual Friendsgiving dinner on Wednesday night and posted a photo of the enchiladas she made just for Jimmy Kimmel — though she didn’t appear to be too happy about it. Kimmel commented “Muchas gracias. This is a tremendous victory for me and for every American who believes turkey belongs on Thursdays. #noturkeyforFriendsgiving”

-Look Vanessa Hudgens, you’ve got a good thing going. Right now, everyone is feeling warm and fuzzy thoughts about your ability to charm them perennially in various holiday-themed cheesy Netflix movies. So why did this seem like a good time to express your desire to work with Woody Allen?!?

Yvette Nicole Brown took Isiah Washington to school today on Twitter. You love to see it.

Adam Driver Goes Dark for Rolling Stone

Adam Driver is on the new cover of Rolling Stone, and yes, this is an acceptable way to start my week.

-The American Music Awards were last night. The red carpet was underwhelming, the shade was surprisingly subtle, and the most creative performance came from Halsey, of all people.  My personal favourite moment was when the camera cut to the audience during Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s performance, and you could see Jenna Dewan clearly mouth “she’s always so extra.”  (She’s since denied it.)

Justin Timberlake’s camp is fighting back at rumours that he cheated on Jessica Biel with co-star Alisha Wainwright, with a source saying their like brother and sister. Oh sure, I often hold hands with my brother when I’m not stroking his knee.

-This Kim Kardashian profile is worth reading, if only for the part where Kris Jenner is gifted the bag Kim wanted at her Chanel fashion shoot: “I remember texting my sisters and being like, “Guys, mom is stealing my shiiiine. This is my first fashion shoot! So then the shoot’s over, and [Karl] comes out with something behind his back. And I’m like: “THE BAAAAAG. IT’S HEEEERRE. OH MY GOD.” I’m thinking: I will cherish this forever, and I’m pregnant, so one day I’ll give this bag to my daughter. Then he comes up and he’s like, “Kim, this was the best shoot. Thank you so much. But Kris, here is a bag for you,” and he gives the fucking bag to my mom. And it was a LEGO clutch. They were like ten grand, and you could never get one. And this was all Swarovski crystal with hand stones that was just a sample that never made it to production. So I go into the bathroom and start crying. I was like, Oh my God, she fully stole my life. She stole my whole day today! This was my biggest moment ever in fashion, with Carine, Riccardo, and Karl!”

-The Little Women reviews are really positive, with Variety saying “In terms of sheer logistics, Little Women marks a huge step forward for [Greta] Gerwig, who shows an aptitude for future studio projects without sacrificing her distinctive directorial voice.”

-Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson are still dating. And he’s still too old for her.

-The new Walking Dead spin-off is called World Beyond, and AMC someone convinced Julia Ormond to be part of it.

-This is terrible: K-pop singer Goo Ha-ra was found dead at her home over the weekend.

-This thread from a music writer who claims Amanda Palmer is obsessed with her is downright terrifying.

Jason Derulo broke the internet this weekend with this photo.  If he’s trying to redeem his rep after that terrible Cats trailer…it might be working.

-This is No Longer Us: Justin Hartley filed for divorce from his wife after two years of marriage.

-A new clip has been released for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

 

 

Daisy Ridley Talks Fame, Family and Fiancée

daisy-ridley-marie-claire

-In her Marie Claire cover storyDaisy Ridley discusses the emotional toll her Star Wars fame has had on her family (“It’s super invasive. We went to a wedding recently, and it was uncomfortable for me because people were really rude. They don’t act like normal human beings. And then, not only did I not have a good time, but then my mum was upset and then my sisters are upset. So it’s tricky”), and declines to address rumours she’s engaged (“It’s a really nice ring that I wear. Oh my God. It’s the first time I’ve publicly been asked this…The thing is, I’ve never talked about my personal life. So I won’t talk about it now”).

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello had a smoochy good time at the Raptors game last night.

-The reviews are out for Charlie’s Angels, which opens this weekend, and most are positive — especially about Kristen Stewart’s performance.

-I’ve been trying to figure out which dress in this photo I hate the most and I honesty can’t decide? They’re all so bad, but Jennifer Garner‘s pulls ahead just slightly IMO.

-The Cats movie is delayed and may miss some award consideration. If it doesn’t hit the Golden Globes deadline, what was even the point?

-Also, for some inexplicable reason, the Golden Globes has decided to bring back Ricky Gervais to host.

Adam Devine says everyone always confuses him with Adam Levine. I’m sorry, but he wishes.

-The entire cast of Days of Our Lives has been released from their contracts and production has halted indefinitely. It shoots a ridiculous 8 months in advance (compared to other soaps, which are usually 1-2 months) so the show will still have enough episodes to run until summer and fix their weird delay. But the fear is that if the show does end up getting renewed next year, Corday Productions will be able to offer the actors new contacts at a reduced rate. Shady stuff.

-This is an excellent, excellent piece on Edward Norton and how is once-acclaimed performances — which tend to be labored and physically precise — in movies like Primal Fear haven’t aged well.

-In news that will shock absolutely no one who watched the series finale, the producers of Gossip Girl revealed that they hadn’t originally planned to have Dan be the secret society stalker — it was supposed to be Eric or Nate.

Alex Trebek got choked up when a contestant used his final Jeopardy answer to pay tribute to the host.

-Variety’s Actors on Actors interviews continue, with the latest being between Brad Pitt and Adam Sandler, and Laura Dern and Sterling K Brown.

-Hulu announced that there are no plans for more Veronica Mars and frankly based on how the last season ended, I’m ok with that.

-If you’ve seen Last Christmas, here’s a funny piece on that bananas (but oh so predictable) ending.

-Millie Bobby Brown no longer looks like Millie Bobby Brown.

-Not surprisingly, Disney+ was a clusterf**k this morning as millions of people tried to download it and log in. I have no idea why they wouldn’t make the app available a few days ago so that everyone could download it and set up their profiles first.

-For those who did get to log in, they seemed to like The Mandalorian, which is getting decent reviews.

-When asked if Werner Herzog felt pressure working with Jon Favreau on The Mandalorian, he replied “I do not know what other films he has made” — which is glorious shade. (To be fair, elsewhere in the interview he praises Favreau’s abilities as a Hollywood power broker.)

-There was also a lot of deleted scenes released on the platform from the Avengers movies, including this scene of Tony with his grown daughter in Endgame.

-I don’t have Disney+ but I would like to watch this holiday movie starring Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader.
