Amber Heard Welcomed a Daughter

Amber Heard is a mom. She revealed she welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Oonagh Paige Heard, via surrogate in April. The actress tweeted “I hope we arrive at a point in which it’s normalized to not want a ring in order to have a crib.”

Taika Waititi seems unbothered by that viral photo of him making out with Tessa Thompson and Rita Ora. “I think in the world of the internet, everything goes away pretty quick. And also, ‘Is it that big a deal?’ No, not really. I was doing nothing wrong. It’s fine.”

Angelina Jolie was spotted hanging out with The Weeknd and now everyone thinks they’re dating.

Lisa Rinna is not loving her daughter hanging out with Scott Disick. “She’s 19, he’s 37 with three kids. Hello!”

-After recordings of the remote audio from Britney Spears’ 24-minute statement during her conservatorship hearing circulated widely online, L.A. County courts have decided to end their remote audio attendance program completely.

Iggy Azalea says she saw Jamie Spears’ “abusive” behavior towards his daughter firsthand.

-TV networks are grappling with whether or not to interview Bill Cosby. Why would they? He’s just going to deny everything and express zero remorse…again.

-Meanwhile Phylicia Rashad tried to walk back her praise of Cosby‘s release.

Tabitha Brown very sweetly told Wendy Williams to mind her own business.

Joy Behar’s reaction to Meghan McCain‘s announcement that she’s leaving The View was everything.

Machine Gun Kelly changed the name of his new movie after Mac Miller’s brother took offense.

The Bold Type’s final season was kinda meh. But at least everyone agreed that Sutton’s wedding dress was hideous.

-This is a really interesting article on the CW dramedy In the Dark (which cast a sighted actress in the role of the blind lead character) and what the performance of blindness means to those with varying degrees of sight.

-Ooh…The Unhoneymooners is being made into a movie. This is one of my fave romcom books.

-I’m digging Taylor Swift‘s new song.

Stephen Lang returns in the Don’t Breathe sequel. Jane Levy, however, does not — and was not impressed by the director’s patronizing comments about how they excluded her for her own good.

John David Washington fights for his life in the trailer for Netflix’s Beckett.

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson gathered via Zoom for THR’s TV actress roundtable. They discussed pay, with Anderson talking about being offered a tenth of what David Duchovny was offered for the reboot. “That was the point where I was like, “Fuck this. I’m actually going to talk about this [publicly].” Erivo also discussed salary (“I’m a Black woman. That has a lot to do with how you’re paid, how you’re hired, if you’re hired, the way you’re hired — it affects everything”) and how she still has to ask for Black makeup artists on set. “It isn’t about vanity, it’s about making sure that whoever I’m playing is represented in the right way because they understand how to work with my skin tone and my hair.”

-It’s been a not-great week for Matthew Perry. First there was chatter about his appearance on the reunion, and now comes news that he split from fiancée Molly Hurwitz.

-In her new, self-directed video for “Lost Cause,” Billie Eilish hosts a slumber party for a group of girlfriends.

-Now that Taylor Swift has been cast in a David O. Russell movie, all the terrible stories about him are resurfacing. I can’t believe this guy still gets jobs, let alone any actor wants to work with him. Even George Clooney wanted to hurt him.

-Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu wrote an explosive Facebook post about how how frustrated he had become with the show’s producers and his fellow cast members. I’m sure all of his complaints are valid, but this is a surprising flex when you’re about to lead a Marvel movie.

-Thor Love and Thunder is done filming, and the photo that they posted makes me want to write Chris Hemsworth a note excusing him from the gym for the next year.

Ellie Kemper was linked to a white supremacist group after a 22-year-old photo of her surfaced on Twitter but the truth was more complicated — she was crowned Queen of Love and Beauty at an event that had connections to the klan in its early years, but has since become a debutante ball. Still problematic, but less so.

-Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will play Lizzie Bennett in a contemporary rom-com for Netflix that’s “in the spirit of Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.” Yes, I’ll take all the Pride and Prejudice adaptations.

This interview with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga is hilarious. She asks the interviewer over and over if he believes in “spiritual warfare.”

-I work in social media and I don’t believe for a second that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop team posted that photo of Ben Affleck without her knowledge.

Sophia Bush says she was fetishized on One Tree Hill. “My girlfriends from One Tree Hill and I talk about that all the time. We’re like, girls don’t talk to each other the way we had to talk to each other on that show, and also don’t behave the way we had to behave on that show. Come on! That was, like, some gross older man’s fantasy. And it was icky.”

-Every new trailer for Apple TV’s Physical, starring Rose Byrne, gets me more and more excited.

Gael García Bernal fights against time in the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.

Katy Perry: Motherhood Healed “Pain in My Heart”

-I didn’t even recognize Katy Perry on the cover of L’OFFICIEL. She talked about how her life has changed since she welcomed her daughter Daisy. “As a performer I’ve always relied on the love and acceptance and validation of the outside world and that ultimately can waver at times. When you have a child, you have someone who looks at you and doesn’t know anything on your resume, doesn’t know anything about your bank account, doesn’t know anything, doesn’t care, and just loves you. Unconditional love. It’s just…everything I think I was looking for.”

-I love that Nicholas Braun landed a British GQ cover. Sadly, he wasn’t asked about DeuxMoi’s obsession with his sex life.

Taylor Swift is going to try to shake off the Cats stink with another swing at acting. She’s joined the cast of David O. Russell’s next film, starring alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie.

Kate Winslet was interviewed by Maureen Dowd for the NYT, and her reaction to the rapid fire round is hilarious. When asked about following Bennifer news she replied “What? No! I’ve never read about Jennifer in my life. What are these questions?”

-She also talked about insisting on being unglamorous for Mare of Easttown, and says she disapproved the promotional poster twice because she was too retouched. “They were like ‘Kate, really, you can’t,’ and I’m like ‘Guys, I know how many lines I have by the side of my eye, please put them all back.’… I guess that’s why people have connected with this character in the way that they have done because there are clearly no filters. She’s a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age and her life and where she comes from. I think we’re starved of that a bit.”

-The Amell cousins are returning for a Code 8 sequel. Hopefully they can pay for it themselves this time.

Julianne Hough’s teen niece posted a TikTok saying “My aunt has slept with Leonardo DiCaprio. Apparently, he’s not good in bed, though.” She didn’t mention if he wore headphones, though.

-The Friends cast received at least $2.5 million each to appear in the special.

-In their latest podcast, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke spoke about Mischa Barton’s recent comments on her poor treatment during the filming of The O.C. “Where is she going with this and what is she trying to say? I would actually like to talk to her and find out what her experience was from her perspective, because I saw things a little differently.”

Martin Freeman called method acting “the most self-aggrandizing, selfish, narcissistic f**king bollocks I have ever seen.” My favourite method acting story when Dustin Hoffman told Laurence Olivier that he hadn’t slept because he was filming a scene where his character was up for three days straight, and Olivier replied “Why don’t you just try acting?”

Kelly Osbourne appeared on Red Table Talk and discussed her relapse during the pandemic after 4 years of sobriety.

-Congrats to Lance Bass, who’s expecting twins with his hubby.

-Broad City’s Ilana Glazer stars in the new pregnancy horror film False Positive.
