Gwyneth Paltrow’s Perfect Part

gwyneth paltrow the politician

Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter with Ben Platt to promote Ryan Murphy‘s new Netflix show The Politician, in which she plays Platt’s ultra-rich, entitled stepmom. Has there ever been a more perfect headline than “Wealth & Privilege & Gwyneth”? She talks about working with husband Brad Falchuk, who co-created the show (“It’s so fun to be working with someone who you’re in love with. I was like, ‘Agh! He’s so hot, he’s so talented, this is so fun'”) and is hilariously dismissive of playing the game (“I’m definitely going to do some promotion. As little as I can get away with, but still”).

Taylor Swift dredges up her Kim Kardashian feud for her Vogue cover story.

-Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller Bridge was adorable (and adorably naughty) while playing Think Fast! with Jimmy Fallon.

-The 90210 premiere scored the best series premiere of the summer, with ratings more than double the best performance by any other broadcast scripted series this season.

-Meanwhile, Shannen Doherty says she definitely wasn’t going to do the show — “They didn’t need me, so it just wasn’t, at that moment, what I wanted to be doing” — but when Luke Perry passed away things “drastically changed” and she saw it as an opportunity to honour him.

-Stellar human being Emma Watson and Time’s Up UK announced a workplace harassment hotline.

-Stellar human being No 2 Danny Trejo played a real-life hero yesterday when he helped rescue a baby trapped in an overturned car after a collision at a Los Angeles intersection.

Bon Iver just dropped a new album and I need to cancel all my plans and go brood to it…

-The mukbang trend has officially peaked: Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski’s did a sponcon one.

-In the latest “white men fail up” news, the Game Of Thrones creators just closed a $200M Netflix deal. On the plus side, it looks like this means Confederate is dead in the water.

-Figure skater Scott Moir is engaged to someone who isn’t Tessa Virtue and my Twitter TL is all up in their feels about it.

-Oh my god, there’s a chance that Happy Endings might be revived and I NEED IT. Do you know how many times I’ve referenced “whore’s bath” in my life? (Spoiler alert: too many times.)

-Now that Schitt’s Creek has won over fans in the US, it looks like Letterkenny is the next Canadian comedy up to bat.

Michelle Williams will reprise her role as Anne/She-Venom in Andy Serkis’ Venom 2. Get that Marvel money, girl.

Antonio Banderas plays a director whose heyday is behind him in the Pain and Glory trailer, the latest from Pedro Almodóvar.

Beyonce Debuts The Twins: Rumi & Sir Carter

Beyonce made sure to lead us into the weekend with a burst of happiness by dropping the first photo of the twins, which she captioned “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today.” (I’m guessing his name is Sir and not Sir Carter, because that would make him Sir Carter Carter.)

-Everything’s coming up roses for Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland and Zendaya. Not only is their movie crushing it, they are reportedly dating.

-The Walking Dead is having a horrible week. After their dirty laundry got aired in the Frank Darabont lawsuit docs, a stuntman died as a result of an onset injury. John Bernecker fell more than 20 feet onto a concrete floor on the show’s Georgia set, leading AMC to temporarily shut down production.

-Speaking of the Walking Dead lawsuit, it also revealed a lot of other scoop about AMC shows, including Mad Men’s $30 million deal with Matthew Weiner. He was paid $2.5 million for signing on to the last two seasons, with the rest of the sum ($27.5 million) resulting from episode fees, royalty fees and writing, directing and producing fees. He would also get $25,000 for each award nomination and $125,000 for each award win.

-Oh, and the makeup artist on The Walking Dead is getting backend profits. So basically, AMC’s deals are insane.

-Wait, so instead of denying Blac Chyna’s allegations this week that Rob physically abused her, the Kardashian’s response was to remind everyone that she signed a non-disclosure agreement? What a terrible rebuttal.

-Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, starring Cate Blanchett, is getting a Mother’s Day release. I adored that book, written by Maria Semple (who used to work on Arrested Development).

-Speaking of books I loved, the first look at Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One has me stoked.

-Something that’s becoming increasingly clear to me: I’m not a fan Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse. First he mansplains how Hollywood works on R*ddit, and now there’s video of him harassing a busker in Vancouver who was interrupting their shoot. Clearing streets is the job of the crew.

Gwyneth Paltrow is NOT getting the reaction she was hoping for after going on the defensive on GOOP and then tweeting “when they go low, we go high.” Twitter was quick to point out that her latest issue was the opposite of high, and now everyone’s talking about all the quack doctors GOOP features. It’s literally the Streisand effect.

-Meanwhile, the doctor in her targets spoke to Buzzfeed (“It’s just odd I have to defend myself against a website that passes on the idea that bras cause cancer”) and penned a rebuttal on her blog titled “Dear Gwyneth Paltrow we’re not f**king with you we’re correcting you, XOXO Science”

Alexander Skarsgard and Alexa Chung have broken up.

Connie Britton revealed the story behind her ‘stripper dance’ on Friday Night Lights.

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are so excited for Game Of Thrones they made a video. Sometimes I have issues with these two (usually when they ‘re begging for privacy while simultaneously shooting commercials about their home life), but most times I really dig these two nerds.

-This is an interesting piece on how Game of Thrones, which returns this wknd, will probably be the last show a large amount of us are watching at the same time.

Shia LaBeouf proved that sometimes people who say they’re allies actually aren’t when the going gets tough. In new video released of his arrest, he tells a black officer he’s “going to hell” because of his skin colour, adding “you got a president that don’t give a f-ck about you, and you’re stuck in a police force that doesn’t give a f-ck about you. You want to arrest white people who give a f-ck?” Ugh.

-Heroes actor Thomas Dekker has come out as gay after being outed by Bryan Fuller.

-Buzzfeed wrote about how Jennifer Garner‘s made a business out of not appearing in movies and focusing on her good girl branding. “A relatively boring celebrity, without a major movie project in sight, has reemerged as a gossip fixture: not for her participation in scandal, but for her resistance to it.”

-Brooklyn been placed under martial law by rogue forces after Texas secedes from the union in the trailer for Bushwick, starring Dave Bautista and Brittany Snow.

-We’re blessed with so many Idris Elba covers this month! Here he is on the new cover of Essence and I’m dead. This is my ghost typing. Oh god, I just discovered the behind-the-scenes video. Yup, I am deceased.

Jesse Williams denies cheating rumors surrounding him and Minka Kelly in Jay-Z’s latest “Footnotes” video: “I was in a relationship 13 years, 13 real years, not five years, not seven years, 13 years and all of a sudden motherf–kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship — like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life, like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart — that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.”

-Meanwhile, in what can only be considered exceptionally poorly timing, news broke today that the newly single Jesse is now reportedly dating … drumroll please … Minka Kelly!

-Speaking of crazy bad timing, Ben Affleck and new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus were photographed looking happy yesterday — and then People ran a story about how Jennifer Garner confronted Shookus about an alleged affair with Affleck in 2015.

Shia LaBeouf shouts profanities at police in new arrest footage. He was reportedly arrested in a hotel lobby in the middle of the night for yelling at someone who refused to give him a smoke.

-The critics are not being kind to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. THR says “The Razzies don’t need to wait until the end of the year to anoint a winner for 2017” while EW calls it “an epic mess.”

-Showtime is reportedly developing a sequel to The L Word.  There was a cast reunion in a recent issue of EW and I forgot how much I miss this show.

Rutina Wesley penned a touching tribute to her friend and True Blood co-star Nelsan Ellis.

Nina Dobrev and Hidden Figures star Glen Powell are officially dating after months of romance rumors.

Guy Ritchie‘s live-action Aladdin can’t find its Aladdin. The studio is eyeing Naomi Scott or Tara Sutaria to play Jasmine, but can’t lock the deal until the male lead has been selected. I really, really hope it’s because Disney is looking for a diverse cast and not that they just put this story out there so that later they can be all “hey, we tried.”

Bryce Dallas Howard posted a cute photo of her and Chris Pratt finishing up on Jurassic World 2. It’s not clear what shoes she’s wearing, though.

-The cute guy from Younger is in an open relationship with a lesbian. Why not?

Gerard Butler should probably stop attempting an American accent. It’s not working.
