Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Photographed Together

-We were just gifted with our first blurry photo of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry together. Merry Christmas to us!

-12 years ago, The Sun was also the first to get a photo of William and Kate together — and the palace was furious.

Amber Heard just publicly called out Johnny Depp for working with tabloids to start rumors. “I was responding to the leaks by Johnny’s agents bragging that I had settled for substantially less than a reported, earlier offered sum and attempting to label me a gold digger.” Hot day-um!

Rosemarie DeWitt and Ron Livingston (two actors I love but always forget are together) have adopted a daughter.

-So it turns out the Passengers press tour is more entertaining than the movie, according to critics. It’s at a dismal 24% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, EW gave it a D+, Variety said it was “lost in space” and The Guardian gave it 2 stars out of 5.  Everyone seems to have issues about how Chris Pratt‘s character does something morally reprehensible.

-Speaking of bad new movies, I saw Collateral Beauty last night. You shouldn’t. At least the reviews are hilariously vicious. Vulture rounded up the meanest ones.

-This is an interesting read on SNL’s anti-TV bias. I’ve never really thought of this, but SNL doesn’t invite many TV stars to host.

-The best thing about Denzel Washington promoting a new movie is that we get to hear his wisdom drops. First it was his take on fake news, and now  it’s his comments in THR’s director roundtable.  “People talk about the difficulty of making a movie and I’m like, send your son to Iraq, that’s difficult. It’s just a movie. Relax. I don’t play that precious nonsense.” Preach!

Megan Fox is reportedly eyeing the Poison Ivy role in Gotham City Sirens. Huh.

-Yet another How I Met Your Mother spinoff is in the works, this one from the writers of This Is Us.

-SNL’s Taran Killam playing Hamilton’s King George is brilliant casting.

-The weird thing about this NYT article on Stephen Amell‘s wine venture is that it makes it so clear that he isn’t really focused on the quality or winemaking process. Which maybe is a good thing? My BFF and I share a fancy wine club subscription and their selection process and tasting notes are INTENSE. But any interest I had in joining Amell’s wine club disappeared when he posted this “tasting” video on FB. They clearly don’t know what they’re doing. I’m no wine expert or snob, but I at least know how to pour and taste. They don’t even changes glasses! (On the plus side, his feet look really big in the photo that accompanies the article, so there’s that.)

-Is Bradley Cooper getting married? Irina Shayk has been spotted sporting a diamond.

Nicole Kidman says she and Keith Urban don’t exchange Christmas gifts. As someone who hasn’t started her shopping yet, this sounds like a good plan!

-I just assumed hosting the Oscars would mean a big paycheque. I guess not.

Toni Collette unravels a mystery in the trailer for Jasper Jones.

The Rock Drops Best Blind Item Ever

The Rock Instagram blind item

-The Rock posted a blind item on Instagram that  put everyone on the internet in instant detective mode last night. The majority of people immediately assumed he was talking about his new costar Scott Eastwood, but I’m not so sure. His opening comment about how “no other franchise gets my blood boiling more than this one” makes me think it’s one of his longtime costars. Plus he uses “candy ass,” his signature phrase which Eastwood also referenced in his douchey Esquire interview. Also, The Rock has tweeted nice things about him in the past. ONTD’s sleuthers have narrowed it down to Vin (noooo!!!) or Tyrese (more likely).

-Here’s more about Seth Rogen‘s comments on Katherine Heigl. He’s waiting for a personal apology?! Look, it was not her smartest career move but the movie had already come out and if you look at what she actually said about Knocked Up… she’s not wrong. I liked that movie but damn if the women weren’t all depicted as shrews. And her comment wasn’t directed at him, so for him to still be butthurt about it stumps me. Also, The Rock is being celebrated for his post and that movie that hasn’t even been released yet. (And he *should* be celebrated for it! His post was awesome!) But the difference between how actresses and actors are allowed to be critical is glaring.

Lady Gaga and Ray Liotta‘s reps have denied they’re a new item and I’ve never wanted to believe a publicist more.

Tom Hiddleston is now on Instagram but weirdly, there’s no overly staged romantic photos yet. He’s doing it wrong!

-TIFF’s announcements continue to impress. Brie Larson, a Kaiju-fied Anne Hathaway and the Blair Witch Project are all coming to Midnight Madness.

Julianne Moore is starring in a new TV series with Robert De Niro that’s being developed by David O. Russell and I already want to enclose her in protective bubble wrap.

Taran Killam has been let go on SNL and this interview about it is kind of heartbreaking.

-This is amazing: thanks to Mo Ryan‘s piece in Variety last year about the lack of diversity on TV, FX’s John Landgraf took his network from 12% women and people of color directors in 2015 to 51% in 2016.

-It might turn out to be terrible, but this Prison Break revival clip has me all tingly.

-Speaking of dubious revivals, a year ago this tweet from David Duchovny to Gillian Anderson would have made me squeal. Now? Not so much.

-We are officially on Bon Iver album watch. Don’t do me like Frank Ocean, Bon!

-There was an N’SYNC reunion at J.C.’s 40th(!) birthday party. We’re old, y’all.

-The first trailer for Marvel’s next Netflix show Luke Cage shows his one weak spot. (Sadly, it’s not me.)
