-The headline of NYT’s new profileEllen Degeneres Is Not As Nice As You Think” made me think they were diving into some of the blind items about her, but it turns out they’re just being cheeky.

Cybil Shepherd says that she once declined Les Moovnes advances — and her show was promptly canceled.

Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan broke up after nearly a year together. This would probably have more impact if I knew they were dating.

-Grey, meet Grey. Jennifer Grey is coming to Grey’s Anatomy in a mysterious new role.

Jennifer Lopez Is Feeling It

Jennifer Lopez and her Second Act co-star Milo Ventimiglia played “Can You Feel It?” on Fallon. There is not enough money in the world to get me to stick my hand in that box.

-Meanwhile, JLo has been killing it fashion-wise on this press tour.

-Us Weekly claims that Joe Alwyn may be getting ready to propose to Taylor Swift, and Chris Martin may be getting ready to propose to Dakota Johnson. Do they have spies at jewelry stores or something? Oh god, do they?!?

Donald Trump might actually believe that Christian Bale is Bruce Wayne. I buy it.

-I don’t watch Supernatural, but my Twitter feed got very excited by the news that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is returning for its 300th ep. (Also, 300 episodes?! That’s insane.)

The TV side was a mess though — lots of Ozark, but no Keri Russell or The Good Place? Really?!?

Maroon 5 reportedly can’t find guests to join them at the Super Bowl and I’m laughing forever…

-My biggest takeaway from the CW crossover: Tyler Hoechlin needs his own Superman show. I know the whole thing was supposed to push Ruby Rose as Batwoman, but he was the new face that stole the show. Also, the fact that he was super dreamy to his pregnant costar during filming is icing on the cake!

-Pixa just announced their next movie and it has an insanely good cast.

-Nice! Vice asked Devon Sawa (who starred in Eminem’s Stan video) who he stans.

Idris Elba Talks Upbringing, Career in Esquire UK

Idris-Elba-Esquire-UK

Idris Elba is on the cover of December’s British Esquire and this feels like a really nice way for the universe to welcome me back to civilization after my vacation. In the interview, he talks about his early career and getting famous by playing an American. “I don’t like the term ‘black actor’ in the first place. I don’t understand what that is. When we talk about Benedict Cumberbatch, we don’t call him a ‘white actor’. When you speak about van Gogh, or any other painter, they’re painters; they use all the colours in the spectrum. They don’t use colours confined to where they’re from…I’m a British actor, but America made me who I am as a popular actor by playing an American. But it just turns out that my grandad on my mother’s side was born in Kansas City. So, am I allowed? Or not allowed? The debate thickens, do you know what I mean?”

Meaghan Markle and Kate Middleton were twinning today.

Taylor Swift‘s new $200 million record deal isn’t just huge for her — she used it to help out other artists.
