Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet: New BFFs?

Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet were spotted together at a Bed, Bath & Beyond in Manhattan, but sources insist they’re just friends.

-The trailer for Taylor Swift‘s upcoming Netflix documentary has dropped and yeah, I’ll watch this.

-In her upcoming memoir, Jessica Simpson reveals that she was sexually abused as a child by the daughter of a family friend and later turned to self-medicating: “I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills.” She also says her drinking escalated during her relationship with John Mayer: “I constantly worried that I wasn’t smart enough for him. He was so clever and treated conversation like a friendly competition that he had to win…My anxiety would spike and I would pour another drink. It was the start of me relying on alcohol to mask my nerves.”

Terry Jones, a founding member of Monty Python and a beloved comedian, screenwriter, film director, poet, historian and author, has died at 77.

-A critic detailed his experience after he said that SNL was no longer funny — and Michael Che spent the next few months mocking him for it.

-This is a lovely interview with Schitt’s Creek stars Dan Levy and Annie Murphy. She talks about showing up to one of his fancy brunches with a bucket of KFC (“Not that that’s what I connect with brunch. I just thought everyone likes KFC secretly deep down”), while Levy talks about the giant billboard to promote the show in LA that features him and Noah Reid kissing (“That takes a team effort because there are not a lot of networks that would put an image of two men kissing on a two-story billboard on Sunset Boulevard. Why? For fear of retaliation from, like, One Million Moms or some dumb hate group? I can’t. We’re fearful of the wrong people, ultimately”).

-Speaking of Dan Levy, he and Mary Steenburgen were just added to the cast of a gay rom-com starring Kristen Stewart and McKenzie Davis. God, give me all of that!

-Speaking of the Schitt’s Creek cast, this moderator’s exchange with Catherine O’Hara was so very Moira-like I guffawed.

-The full name of Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden‘s baby is Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden. Ok, then.

Kim Kardashian says she came up with the inspiration for her daughter’s name from a Jay Leno joke.

-YouTuber David Dobrik (aka the only one I only watch) went on Fallon’s show and talked about meeting Justin Bieber for the first time, and how the singer proceeded to tickle him. He also talked about how he got married to his friend’s 70-something-year-old mom just to become his friend’s stepdad.

-The photographer who grabbed that photo of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston backstage at the SAG Awards explained how she got the shot: “I was about to leave when I saw Brad coming down the hallway and sensed that there would be a photo-worthy moment. He called out ‘Aniston!’ and she turned around and they embraced and congratulated each other.”

Gina Rodriguez, what are you doing?!? (She turned off the comments on her post, so it’s possible she was aware that this book review was all over Twitter yesterday.) And yet…

-This is quite lovely: Patrick Stewart appeared on The View today and surprised Whoopi Goldberg by inviting her to appear on his new Star Trek series.

-Speaking of Patrick Stewart, he plays a famous pianist struggling with stage fright who gets help from a music critic, played by Katie Holmes, in the trailer for Coda.

-Well, this is a happy surprise to head into the holidays. Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith have not only tied the knot, they are also expecting their first child, according to Us Weekly. I love him so much and she seems equally delightful so yay!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have confirmed that they’ll be spending the holidays here in Canada. Welcome. Please bring snow.

-My god, how did I miss Mariah Carey‘s Billy on the Street episode from a few days ago? It’s perfection!

-Watch this video of Little Women’s Timothée Chalamet and Louis Garrel speaking French. For science.

-It’s my favourite day on Twitter: when everyone submits the best TV line of the year. (I’m not sure anything beats “Kneel,” but “For the sake of your poor ol’ dad, keep the door open three inches,” and NoHoHank’s response to Barry’s “Am I evil?” question: “Oh my God! I mean. Absolutely! Do I not tell you that enough? You are like the most evil guy I know, man!”)

-Speaking of Barry, Henry Winkler says he regularly writes fan letters to celebrities. “I think if you see something and it is so incredible, if you see a performance like Sam Rockwell as Fosse, you have to write a letter. If you see Patricia Arquette in Escape at Dannemor, you have to write a letter.”

Kim Kardashian is getting called out for blackface thanks to her new fashion photo shoot.

-TVLine named Unbelievable’s Merritt Wever, Kaitlyn Dever and Toni Collette and the performers of the year and I fully support this. Not only were all three great in the Netflix show, Dever had Booksmart, Wever had Marriage Story and Collette had Knives Out.

-This is a good interview with Star Wars’ Kelly Marie Tran and Naomi Ackie, in which they discuss their own privilege, pay equality, and tarot cards.

-If you’re angry about J.K. Rowling, take comfort in knowing the Buffy’s Anthony Stewart Head once went out of his way to spend the day with a trans fan.

-The trailer for the final season of Schitt’s Creek has landed. It have two weeks to catch up before the new season starts.

Zoë Kravitz stars in the first trailer for Hulu’s High Fidelity. Oh yeah, I’ll be watching this.

-CBS released a new trailer for Star Trek: Picard.

-The best thing about the Cats movie is how savage critics are in their reviews. This collection made me laugh.

-Also making me laugh: this ranking of the songs in the movie.

Jennifer Hudson transforms into Aretha Franklin in the trailer for Respect. This should help to get the stink of Cats off her…

-Force Majeure was a brutal, devastatingly funny and gutting examination of a marriage forever changed because of a split-second decision. The American remake, starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, looks…silly?

-Speaking of movies that feel like we’ve already seen better versions of, Amy Adams and Julianne Moore star in the thriller The Woman In The Window.

 

Angelina Jolie Talks Moving On

Angelina Jolie is in the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar and says she’s planning on moving to Africa. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18. Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”

Emma Watson calls herself “self-partnered” instead of “single,” which sounds kinda dirty and I love it.

-Talking to Howard Stern, Kristen Stewart says she would’ve married Robert Pattinson: “If he proposed, you would’ve gotten married. I’m not a super duper traditionalist, but at the same time…every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

Martin Scorcese wrote a NYT piece on superhero movies and film Twitter has been fighting about it all day. I actually agree with a lot of what he says about the changing business of making movies — media consolidation IS making it harder for smaller and/or diverse films to get theatrical releases. It’s all very similar to Soderbergh’s State of Cinema speech. But he undercuts his argument by taking unnecessary swipes at superhero movies, wading into a tired and snobbish ‘art vs. commerce’ debate. If he stuck to the business/industry side of things, and pointed out how scary Disney is becoming, I bet it would be more widely embraced. I think this thread nails it.

Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin in The Batman, with Andy Serkis up to play Alfred.

Footage surfaced of ABC’s Amy Robach talking about how she had the Epstein story three years ago, but the lawyers killed it. “The palace found out that we had her whole allegations about Prince Andrew and threatened us a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…It was unbelievable what we had. [Bill] Clinton — we had everything.” She later said “I was caught in a private moment of frustration.”

-Welp. Netflix is offering a “skip” button for Trump jokes in the new Seth Meyers comedy special.

Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet are very charming in a new clip from Little Women.

Matt Damon told Conan O’Brien about the time Ben Affleck rescued him from a fight when they were young. “Little five-foot-two Ben Affleck tackled this dude off of me, like out of nowhere. I was, like, a junior and he was, like, a freshman, and he tackled this kid off of me, literally at the risk of his own life.”

-Here’s the trailer for Netflix’s The Two Popes, starring Jonathan Pryce and Anthony Hopkins. People LOVED this at TIFF.

-We have a new trailer for Netflix’s new anthology series based on the songs of Dolly Parton.
