Daisy Ridley Covers British GQ

-I don’t know why British GQ styled Daisy Ridley like a mechanic, but I’m kind of here for it? I also dig her comments about royalty: “I’m going to tell you something so shocking for Americans but not Brits; I don’t massively care about the royal family. I am not a royalist. Buckingham Palace is great but it’s an unused building, isn’t it? The other day, there was a story that the Queen uses six rooms in the palace. Six. How is that a good thing? It’s prime real estate.”

-I was really worried when I saw that Princess Anne was trending this morning, but it turns out it’s just because she’s a badass. She was part of the conversation with Trudeau in which he and other world leaders mocked Trump, and then was scolded by the Queen when she refused to meet with him. I think I love her.

Tom Hanks, Shia LaBeouf, Robert De Niro, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx and Adam Sandler take part in THR’s drama actors roundtable, and it’s a pretty decent discussion (though De Niro barely talks). I like Hanks’ view on comedy: “Can you be funny if you grew up with a built-in swimming pool in your backyard? I don’t think you can. If you grew up being able to swim any time you wanted to, you experienced none of the shortcomings of life that you turn into self-deprecation. You can’t do it.”

Kesha is throwing her name into the mix of stars who have entered the cosmetics world with the launch of her makeup line, Kesha Rose Beauty.

Camila Morrone has no problem with her 23-year age gap with boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio. “There’s so many relationships in Hollywood⁠—and in the history of the world⁠—where people have large age gaps. I just think anyone should be able to date who they want to date.”

Jennifer Lopez is hosting SNL this weekend, and I wish they’d given her a better promo.

-Bad news: that Michael Jackson musical appears to be going forward, and it will be “a part-puppet show in which the late singer’s alleged history of child sex abuse is blamed on a glove-shaped alien forcing Jackson to feed on boys.” Good news: despite earlier reports, rep for Johnny Depp says that he and his company are not producing or involved in any way.

-This is terrible: Mena Massoud says he couldn’t get an audition after starring in Aladdin, which made $1B.

-Riverdale costars Camila Mendes and Charles Melton are no longer dating…for now.

-If I currently looked like Kate Beckinsale does at 46, I’d be unapologetic about posing in a bikini too.

Daniel Craig is back as Bond in the No Time to Die trailer. I’m loving that Léa Seydoux is in this. I’ve only seen her in weird French movies and I love her.

Kristen Stewart Gets Spicy

Kristen Stewart and her Charlie’s Angels costars were the latest celebs to chow down on spicy wings on Hot Wings.

-Speaking of KStew, she’s surprisingly getting good reviews for her comedic timing in Charlie’s Angels. I did not see that coming — but I love it!

-Also, Kristen and Shia LaBeouf were the latest duo to do Variety’s Actors on Actors segment, and this one might be my fave yet. It got really intense really fast, with her talking about a bad experience with a director (“One dude made me cry on set one day, on the first day of a movie, but that was the last second that I cared about him anymore. I was like, ‘I’m alone & you’re terrible.’ He made a bad movie”) and him talking about his somewhat unhealthy love of acting (“The most intimate moments of my whole life happened on set. I don’t know if there’s anything more intimate than creating something with somebody. I think I’m deeply dissatisfied in life”).

Saoirse Ronan looks AMAZING in the new issue of Dazed.

-Whoa, it sounds like this week’s Survivor was a total shitshow. Some contestants turned sexual misconduct into game play and producers apparently let it happen, while the woman who originally complained was forced to sit silently through tribal council while the accused got to angrily defend himself. Gross.

Gillian Anderson is getting raves as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown. Between her and Olivia Colman, I’m gonna have to start watching this show boring ass show again, aren’t I?

-NBC has renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I don’t go here, but good for them!

-At this point, I’m wondering if Scarlet Johansson should just bow out of all press tours. She’s not good at it.

-Also continuing to be problematic: Gina Rodriguez.

Jason Momoa being interviewed by Kelly Clarkson’s kids is all kinds of swoon-worthy.

Julia Wolov is pushing back against a report about Louis CK, confirming that she did NOT consent to him jerking off in front of her to completion.

-I don’t watch horror movies cause they give me the scares, but I love the creator of Black Christmas’ reasoning for making it PG-13 instead of R. “We wrote it with an R in mind. When they did the test screenings, was clear that this movie needed to be available to a younger female audience because the subject matter is timely. Also I want to indoctrinate girls into horror.”

-How did I not know that Vin Diesel taught Judi Dench how to play Dungeons & Dragons and she went on to become DM for her grandchildren?!

-I can’t get enough of these stories about how Mary Steenburgen went under the knife for routine arm surgery — and woke up with incredible musical talent.

-Look, this recent college graduate had a bad take on Sarah Dessen’s YA novels, but there’s something really terrible about watching New York Times bestselling authors like Jennifer Weiner and Jodi Picoult using there hugely followed Twitter accounts to call her out. This is punching down in a really unfortunate way.

Ben Affleck struggles with addiction in the first trailer for his basketball drama The Way Back.

Shia LaBeouf Says He Wrestled Tom Hardy Naked

Shia LaBeouf told a story about wrestling Tom Hardy while naked that has to be heard to be believed.

-One day after Nick Carter filed a restraining order against his younger brother Aaron, court documents reveal that Aaron allegedly told their sister he “thinks about killing babies and has thought about killing [Nick’s pregnant] wife, Lauren.”

-A heavily bearded George Clooney appeared at a news conference in London to call for ending human rights abuses in South Sudan after presenting findings of a new report from his watchdog group, The Sentry.

Tom Welling will reprise his Smallville role in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths. At some point in the very near future, it will be easier to list who *won’t* be appearing in this thing.

Celine Dion is not impressed by rumours that Drake wants to get her face tattooed on his body. “Please Drake, I love you very much. Can I tell you something? Don’t do that. You can write me love letters, you can send me autographs for my kids, you can come and visit. I can have you home for lunch or dinner, we can go for a drink, we can sing together. Whatever you want to do. I can talk to your mother. Whatever you want, but please…”

-Yay for Schitt’s Creek’s Dan Levy, who just landed an overall deal with ABC Studios. I will always remember him as the host of the first after show I’d ever seen — for The Hills, of all things.

-I binged Netflix’s Unbelievable (not a great idea, considering the subject matter) and I couldn’t get over how empathetic it was. All of the performances were great, including Toni Collette and Kaitlyn Dever, but I think Merritt Wever in particular is doing something special here. She so quietly powerful.

Connie Britton doesn’t think a Friday Night Lights reboot is a good idea. Preach!!

-A reboot I can get behind is The Nanny with Cardi B.

This video of Jennifer Lopez learning her routines for Hustlers is insane.

Sarah Silverman says “cancel culture” is “a mutated McCarthy era, where any comic better watch anything they say.” Uh, hard pass. Comedians can say whatever they want — but they also shouldn’t be excused from the consequences.

-Here’s the first trailer Alfre Woodard‘s Clemency. Just Mercy was the death row film that got the most amount of buzz at TIFF, but this one has stuck with me since seeing it.
