Amy Schumer Talks Love and Sex Dreams


-This Marie Claire cover is my favourite yet of Amy Schumer. In the interview, she talks about finding love (“I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me”), dealing with her newfound fame (“I’m trying to figure out how to navigate all this”) and a recent sex dream she had about pal Jemima Kirke (“I almost told her about it. Then I thought maybe Lena would get jealous.”).

-No, Tom Hiddleston. No. You do not get to participate in the most publicity-baiting relationship/stunt for weeks and then get all flustered and perturbed when asked about it like that’s an unexpected question. ALL THE NOPES.

-Meanwhile, is Taylor Swift gunning for a couples Vogue cover? Someone send me an invite to the prayer circle!

-Also, Taylor Swift tops Forbes’ list of the highest paid celebrities — but  it was Kim Kardashian who made the mag’s cover.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk‘s camps insist they were not fighting at Wimbledon. Even though they ran into his ex Suki Waterhouse. And the whole world watched this video. But nope, nothing to see here, folks.

-I’m really glad Samira Wiley‘s most memorable moment from TO’s Pride parade wasn’t the crazy girl who kept yelling “SAMIRAAAAAA!” until she waved at me. I mean her. Waved at her. The girl. Who wasn’t me.

-This is so smart: Mr Robot briefly premiered three days early on Twitter, Youtube and Snapchat. Whoever was running their social media was having a blast with it, too.

Alanis Morissette named her new baby Onyx Solace. Mmkay.

Liv Tyler also welcomed a baby girl. She named her Lula Rose, which is adorable.

Snoop Dogg on Family Feud is surprisingly delightful!

-This story about Prince being a secret computer nerd made me stupidly happy.

-Of course Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dined at Kasa Moto when they were here. Of course they did.

Lin-Manuel Miranda with short hair is making me feel …things.

Shonda Rhimes has no time for Italian TV’s “inexcusable” censorship of HTGAWM’s gay sex scene.

-Just in case you were worried, Kristen Stewart is still cool AF.

-She’s also gunning for a female Bond.

-Guys, the Ghostbusters movie is getting good reviews! Like really, really good reviews. Praise Baby Jebus! (And screw the haters.)

-Meanwhile, in his new Vulture profilePaul Feig says “I wanted for little girls to be able to see themselves up on the screen.” This adorable photo from the screening proves he nailed it.

-Speaking of the premiere, Leslie Jones slayed in a Pretty Woman-inspired red gown, but I also think this was the best-ever showings from Melissa McCartney and Kristen Wiig.

-Are Rihanna and Drake legit official now? They both paid tribute to a fan who passed away. And then there’s this.

-I’m actually surprised Blake Lively allowed her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costars to post this makeup-free pic.

-Oooh, this is such good news: Carrie Coon just signed on to be the lead in Fargo season 3.  She is basically the only reason I stuck with The Leftovers after its dismal first season, and I’m so glad I did. (Seriously, if you didn’t watch season 2, binge it ASAP.) Vulture just named her the Best TV Actress of 2106; watch the second clip embedded in that article if you want to understand why.

Simon Pegg wrote a thoughtful blog post on the decision to reveal Sulu as gay.

Gwyneth Paltrow is in Newfoundland? Please someone tell me there’s video of her being screeched in!

-THR’s full, uncensored Comedy Actress Roundtable with Ilana Glazer, Lily Tomlin, Niecy Nash, Gina Rodriguez, Allison Janney and Rachel Bloom is now online and ready for your eyeballs.

-Roadies episodes have been piling up on my DVR because even though the negative reviews aren’t making me want to watch it, I feel like I have to give Cameron Crowe joints a chance for nostalgia reasons, you know? But then I saw the Twitter/critic uproar over how a sexual assault was depicted on this week’s episode, and now I feel pretty good about deleting them all sight unseen.

-I read this entire review of Johnny Depp’s concert in my morning paper waiting for any mention of the assault allegations against him. Nada.

-Community’s Dan Harmon insists the movie part of #sixseasonsandamovie will happen.

Matt Damon multi-tasks in this new Jason Bourne clip.

Scarlett Johansson and Matthew McConaughey lend their voices to the Sing trailer.

Gwyneth Paltrow Tries to Convince Us She’s Super Laid-Back — With Her Abs


-In her new Women’s Health cover story, Gwyneth Paltrow insists she’s a cool, down-to-earth chick who isn’t as high maintenance as we’ve been led to believe. On her beauty routine, she laughs, “I’m not like, ‘Then I use this masque that I make on my stove.'” On parenting, she insists, “I don’t believe in saying, ‘You’re not allowed that.’ If my kids want a Shirley Temple with the radioactive cherry in it, go for it, you know?” Ahh, why’d she have to say “radioactive.” She sounded *thisclose* to being normal!

-I never thought I’d agree with an article titled “It’s Time for Katherine Heigl to Return to Grey’s Anatomy,” but this makes a lot of sense.

-Ugh, these behind-the-scenes details about the inappropriate behaviour of Mad Men actor Paul Johansson during a Buzzfeed interview are super cringey. Dude needs to simmer down and remember he’ll always be known as the guy who’s heart was eaten by a dog.

-Whew! Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki seems to be fine after sending a series of distressing tweets.

-On today’s Ellen, Melissa McCarthy further expanded on her verbal bitchslap of a reporter who criticized her looks.

Emily Blunt adds her voice to high heel outcry at the Cannes Film Festival. Thank gawd that rule didn’t exist when I was there.

-Now that it’s been confirmed that Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi didn’t shoot their final scene together, whenever you tell someone you hate your coworker, you now need to clarify if you “Good Wife hate” your coworker.

-And that was the day I decided to follow Grant Gustin

-The comments in this story about celebrities being dicks to their fans are beyond hilarious.

Amy Schumer tackles police brutality, body image and dog owners in her latest episode.

-I love the Mariah Carey/JLo feud so hard!

-Just in case you didn’t already love Amal, George Clooney says she kept him on one knee for “28 minutes” pleading his case when he proposed.

-Also, George is still not interested in joining Twitter.

John Greene wants to remind everyone that he’s a novelist, not a casting director. So leave him alone about the Looking For Alaska actors, mmm-kay?

Gael Garcia Bernal wields a giant machete in The Burning trailer.

Simon Pegg addressed his comments about the “dumbing down” of blockbusters and our current obsession with “very childish things” like “comic books, superheroes” — though I’m not sure it’s better to admit that he just makes stuff up when he’s bored during interviews.

Blair Waldorf and Seth Cohen are having a baby!

-Variety has a great cover story on Greg Berlanti. He has a hand in pretty much every show I watch religiously — though I’m not sure about his new Pan movie, based on this trailer.

Vanity Fair’s Star Wars Issue Offers Lots of New Clues

Star Wars Vanity Fair cover

-May the 4th be with you, indeed. Vanity Fair’s new Star Wars photos solve the mystery behind Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver‘s  characters. Not sure how I’m feeling about Lupita’s character being purely CGI…

Gwendoline Christie as the Chrometrooper is totally badass, though.

-Also in the issue, J.J. Abrams reveals he wanted to kill off Jar Jar Binks. Who could possible object to that?

Sofia Vergara has broken her silence on the ongoing saga involving ex Nick Loeb and their frozen embryos.

-Here’s the first single off David Duchovny’s new album. While I was cringe-listening to it with my headphones on, my coworker asked why I was blushing, so that should tell you something…

-This story about how a lawyer fell in love with Michael Douglas’ son and smuggled drugs into prison for him is a good/crazy read.

-Ugh. Sleepy Hollow is dropping Orlando Jones. They totally misused that character in season 2 but that could easily be fixed. And that man understands and interacts with fandom like no other actor I’ve ever seen.

-If you ever wanted to watch Sean “Diddy” Combs have sex, his new NSFW perfume ad is for you. Also, what’s wrong with you?

-I, like the rest of the universe, saw Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend, and while there was lots to like about it, I hated hated hated what they did with Black Widow. After her awesome introduction in the first movie, she was reduced to making googly eyes at a dude and sing “lullabies”? Super disappointing, especially since I expect more from Joss Whedon. This EW article sums up my issues nicely.

-Speaking of disappointing Joss Whedon news, he just quit Twitter. Sigh.

-In other blockbuster movie news, Harley Quinn and the rest of the Suicide Squad have been revealed — and the internet is underwhelmed. This is the second time in a week that David Ayer has tweeted out character art and been burned by it. 

-A Toronto woman saw Ricky Gervais trying to hail a cab and offered him a ride — which he took.

Busy Philips posted a hilarious Instagram pic with the drunk guy she met on a plane. It sounded a lot like when Liz Lemon met Oprah.

-Watch Justin Timberlake play a lime in this very strange tequila commercial. I…don’t get it.

-It looks like Amy Schumer is going to blow up the interwebs again with her 12 Angry Men bit, which debuts next week. Until then, her New Yorker profile is great.

Nikki Reed is posting cutesy pics from her Mexico honeymoon with Ian Somerhalder. The paparazzi is also helping out.

David Beckham finally got Instagram, and his first order of business was to post Spice Girl reunion pics. He’s a quick study!

-Just when you thought the Madonna/Drake kiss couldn’t get any weirder comes her comments about it.

-The Absolutely Anything trailer, starring Simon Pegg, is a total delight.
