Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay

Jessica Chastain, Constance Wu and Ava Duvernay cover Marie Claire, where they talk about the importance of inclusion and representation, and learning how to not obsess about accommodating others.

-Sad news for for those of you who even knew they were dating: Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield split up.

Kit Harrington told Stephen Colbert about the end of Game of Thrones: “I was very shocked and surprised at certain events unfolding, and then I blubbed my eyes out. I cried.”

-I’ve watched this clip of Jennifer Hudson and Tom Jones spontaneously singing at each other more times than can be considered normal.

Keri Russell and Adam Driver (who are costarring on Broadway) are so damn funny and charming in this NYT profile.

-You can tell Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson have done a few movies together by this point; their chemistry is really easy going and nice. The Captain Marvel pair sang Ariana Grande and took a lie detector test on Carpool Karaoke.

-Also, Larson and Jackson sang “Shallow” on The Jonathan Ross Show and they were pretty damn great.

Heidi Montag defended The Hills reboot’s lack of diversity by pointing out her co-stars’ hair colours. So that happened.

-Also, I keep forgetting that Mischa Barton is in this thing.

Gwyneth Paltrow says that her persona shift from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had everyone “thinking I was a crackpot.” Who is this whiskey-drinking badass she’s speaking of?

-Not surprisingly, Idris Elba‘s Netflix comedy about a DJ-turned-nanny isn’t getting glowing reviews. I want more for him than this. (And I definitely want more for him than taking over Will Smith’s role in Suicide Squad.)

-HBO’s The Case Against Adnan Syed will follow Amy Syed’s process of seeking and winning an appeal post-Serial.

-I liked this piece a lot about how Steven Spielberg isn’t right about Netflix — but he’s not entirely wrong either. I’ve been surprised by they lack of debate and the full-throated support of Netflix (who does some not great stuff). At the very least, they *should* disclose their box office numbers if they want to be Oscar contenders.

-Oh my goodness, the Good Omens trailer is all kinds of fun.

-I very much enjoyed this look back at Julia Roberts’ “Fellini summer”, a dramatic few months which included leaving fiance Kiefer Sutherland for Jason Patric, fighting with Steven Spielberg on Hook, being hospitalized for the “flu”, and walking away from Shakespeare in Love.

-You know, I’ve been pretty checked out on Arrow for a while and mostly just catch up with it out of routine these days, but compiling all these cast and fan social media posts about the show’s ending for this story hit me harder than I thought it would, especially Stephen Amell‘s tearful Facebook video. There were seasons when I LOVED this show, and I’m glad it’s getting to go out on its own terms.

-Meanwhile, I’m thinking this TV blind item from a while ago was probably about Amell.

-The trailer for Mindy Kaling’s Late Night starring Emma Thompson is everything I’ve ever wanted.

Zoe Kravitz recreated her mother’s famous nude pose 30 years later on the cover of Rolling Stone. In the interview, she reveals she’s engaged to actor Karl Glusman, talks about working with a director who made her “uncomfortable,” and remembers how growing up in Lenny Kravitz‘s house meant she’d wake up to Ashton Kutcher making omelets in their kitchen and Nicole Kidman wanting to take her to the movies.

Busy Phillips’ talk show debuted last night, and she got Mindy Kaling to admit she was texting Oprah during labour.

Justin Bieber‘s burrito photo was a hoax? Ya don’t say!

-Wow, I have not watched The View in a minute, but Joy Behar has no time for Meghan McCain and I love it.

Lena Dunham is set to adapt a Syrian refugee story for JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg. Yeah, what could possibly go wrong there?

Diane Lane accidentally calling the Bechdel Test the “rectal” test is a beautiful thing.

Colton Haynes filed for divorce from his new husband in May, but last week he posted about celebrating their first anniversary, so they’ve clearly reconciled. I’m so glad for him; I’m weirdly invested in this kid’s happiness.

-So far for celebrity Halloween costumes we’ve got Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse as a NSFW minion, Olivia Munn as Peik LinSarah Hyland and her bf as Taco Bell, Stephen Amell as a slothMatt Latner as Jim HalpertNoah Centineo as Gaston, Gabrielle Union as Gwen Stefani, Harry Styles as Elton John, and Rita Ora as Post Malone.

-I am way, way too wimpy to watch horror, but I was sick this weekend and got totally sucked into Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House. The family drama is hard to resist. Someone described it as “This Is Us with jump scares” which is pretty damn accurate. And it’s shockingly well-made. Episode six is basically two 20-minute one shots that are breathtaking.

-The Heathers show is truly cursed.

50 Cent bought a bunch of seats to a Ja Rule concert — just so they would be empty. I aspire to this level of pettiness.

-Another great #MeToo expose by Amy Kaufman, this one about an actress who was assaulted this year and did all the right things when it came to reporting it – but nothing happened.

Nicki Minaj is denying claims that she leaked Cardi B’s phone number.

-Meanwhile, Cardi B went on a rant about trolls in her comments: “If you’re under comments talking sh*t, y’all need to motherf*cking cut your veins.”

Darren Criss and Lea Michele singing “Shallow” really hit me in the feels.

-In case you need a reminder, this thread recaps why Chris Pratt should not be anyone’s top Chris.

-The red band trailer for Nobody’s Fool made me laugh. I don’t care. I need this.

-Speaking of Vogue, Beyonce is not only covering Anna Wintour‘s last Vogue issue, she’s reportedly assuming complete control.

-While the Guardians of the Galaxy cast is signing open letters in support of James Gunn, their fellow Avengers Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth reportedly unfollowed him.

-I kind of love that this nonsensical Tom Cruise interview answer has gone viral.

-Meanwhile, Mission Impossible: Fallout launched with a series-best opening of $61.5 million.

-On Anna Faris’ latest podcast (which was taped at Comic Con), Arrow star Colton Haynes opened up about losing his mother and going through a divorce around the same time. (It’s weird that outlets are picking up that bit; I listened to that episode and I was way more interested in the part where his costar Stephen Amell admitted for the first time publicly that he was married before, said “I still fucking love my ex [wife]” and talked about how she was the most important thing that happened to him besides his daughter being born. It made me hope his current wife never hears it.)

-Speaking of podcasts, it’s super rich that Marc Maron might join the Joker cast. I was just listening to his episode with Paul Rudd and he kept inferring that Rudd just did Ant Man for the paycheck because superhero movies are dumb.

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse are dating. Huh.

Billy Talent, City & Colour, Pup and more are pulling together a benefit concert for the Danforth.

-Following an intense social media campaign by Timeless fans (who call themselves Clockblockers), NBC announced they’re wrap up the show with a two-hour movie.

Stephen Colbert called Les Mooves “my guy” but still took him to task in last night’s monologue, while Julie Chen defended her husband on The Talk.

-Meanwhile, Meredith Vieira said “I never personally heard anything, but that means nothing. Somebody can be one way with you and very different with another person.” Which ties in perfectly with this Vox piece.

-Celebs reading mean tweets about themselves is a big thing, but I’d much prefer to watch Christine Baranski reading nice tweets people wrote about her. That last one made me a little teary.

-Literal ball of sunshine Gina Rodriguez is probably engaged.

-Well, this is depressing: An annual report shows no significant improvement in film representation of women, people of color, LBGT characters or characters with disability over the past decade.

-In her Vulture interviewKristen Bell teases The Good Place’s new season, talks about her plan for a Bad Moms sequel, and reveals what it’s like to text with Cher.

Kim Kardashian was told she looked anorexic and took it as a compliment. That’s swell.

-I love that Seth Rogen is becoming the voice of Canadian transit. First he took over for the Vancouver system when they dropped Morgan Freeman following his sexual harassment allegations, and now he’s doing Toronto’s subway announcements. This might make me 0.04% less annoyed when someone’s being scolded for blocking the doors.

Alan Alda revealed he has Parkinson’s disease in an appearance on CBS This Morning Tuesday.

-One of the biggest disappointments of the TV season was Dietland, which started out so strong but got so bad that I just stopped watching a few episodes ago. According to reviews, it didn’t rebound in this week’s finale.

-The new Venom trailer shows off much more of Tom Hardy’s take on the Marvel anti-hero. It still looks bad.
