-In a new interview, Leah Remini talks about her ongoing fight against Scientology and adds, “I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents…Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”

-Here’s the Dark Phoenix trailer starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, and Sophie Turner. This feels like the type of movie that might be OK if you just consider it divorced from the rest of the X-Men films.

-Last night the Elle Magazine Women in Entertainment event was held in Los Angeles, and actresses didn’t hold anything back. Reese Witherspoon revealed she was sexually assaulted by a director at 16. Jennifer Lawrence told a harrowing story about being put in a nude lineup.  And Kristen Stewart (god, I love her) reminded everyone to protect the below-the-line females on sets, saying “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve saved makeup artists — because it trickled down, too — and camera assistants from DPs who are like, ‘woo woo.’… And when I say saved, I mean momentarily been like, “Don’t, fucker!” And they are embarrassed for one second but it just keeps going every single day. So I’d say let’s be aware of this on every level. Those girls are as duct-taped as one could possibly be because they are in fear of getting their next job, as every is actress, too, same deal.”
