Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan Reunite for Little Women

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan EW cover

Timothée Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan are on the cover of EW’s November issue and every photo in this spread is so beautiful that I want it tattooed to the inside of my eyelids.

-There’s also a good new Vulture feature on Chalamet, in which he talks about being an Oscar-nominated leading man, a social-media phenomenon, and, most surprisingly, a fashion icon.

-I go away for a few days and Jennifer Aniston joins Instagram? Rude.

-Speaking of news I missed, the idea of Mandy Moore reliving her ’90s popstar days in a new ABC series is *chef’s kiss*

-I loved her on Jane the Virgin but seriously, how many times is Gina Rodriguez going to screw up with the Black community? (Here’s the now-deleted video.) And at what point are celebrities going to realize that saying “I’m sorry if I offended you” doesn’t actually qualify as an apology?!

-Ah crap. Nicole Cliffe (who is usually pretty reliable) is tweeting about how she’s heard lots of not great stories about Jeff Goldblum‘s interactions with women. Universe, can we not have *one* unproblematic fave?!?

-Speaking of men who do not have a good reputation, FX has fired The Mayans showrunner Kurt Sutter for being an “abrasive dick“. According to THR, multiple complaints were made about his behavior on the set of the series.

Jonah Hill passed on role in The Batman opposite Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz, so they just cast Paul Dano as The Riddler (which seems like an upgrade?).

Robert Pattinson can’t stop talking about his masturbation scene in The Lighthouse. I’ll allow it.

-This is an incredibly good interview with Ronan Farrow, in which he talks about NBC’s response to his book, how his sister Dylan serves as his conscience, and his engagement to Jon Lovett

Carrie Preston shared the wrap gift she once got from Julia Roberts and it’s kind of lovely.

Ryan Reynolds revealed that he and Blake Lively had another girl in a tweet encouraging Canadians to vote.

-As if  news of a Clueless reboot wasn’t upsetting enough, the description of it is insufferable.

-This is a great story about how a tweet got Ellen Page’s documentary into TIFF with just a month to spare.

-I’m really surprised that Taylor Swift hadn’t done a Tiny Desk Concert before now.

-When it comes to Fall TV’s broadcast debuts, Prodigal Son, Stumptown and The Unicorn are getting solid ratings, but it doesn’t look good for the other new shows, so I hope you haven’t been getting attached to Evil, Emergence, All Rise, Bluff City Law, Almost Family, Perfect Harmony or Sunnyside.

-I watched the Breaking Bad movie on a plane and cried. Like, actual tears. This deep-dive with Vince Gilligan into the making of it is worth your time.

Freddie Prinze Jr.‘s f-bomby Star Wars rant is kind of delightful (and surprisingly educational).

-Critics have seen the first six episodes of HBO’s The Watchmen — premiering Sunday from Damon Lindelof of Lost and The Leftovers — and the reviews are glowing.

-Speaking of new shows, Paul Rudd‘s Netflix series Living With Yourself is getting good but not great reviews.

-Here’s a new trailer for A Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson and hitting Netflix on Dec. 6.

Miley Cyrus’ Sad House Party

Miley Cyrus‘ walks through the depressing remains of a house party that’s winding down in the new “Slide Away” video.

-Twitter can’t stop talking about Timothee Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp‘s incredibly awkward kiss.

Hailee Steinfeld is in talks to play the lead role opposite Jeremy Renner in Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye series. I’m surprised by how well this news seems to be going over on Twitter (especially among critics). Is she a lowkey Hollywood darling?

-I secretly love Medieval Times, so I’m got a lot of secondhand delight from watching Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon battle at one.

Prince Andrew continues to implode before our eyes — but apparently we’re only supposed to care that Meghan Markle went to the US Open.

Hayley Atwell joining Tom Cruise in next Mission: Impossible movie is fantasy casting for me.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Hot Priest gave out gin in a tin to people in line outside the Fleabag theatre this weekend.

-I’m not sure about Joker based on all the reviews. Do we really need a sympathetic origin story about a nice-guy-turned-mas- murderer right now? This tweet nails where my head’s at.

Joaquin Phoenix, who is in town for TIFF with Joker, made an appearance at St. George subway station today in support of an animal justice campaign “BeFairBeVegan.” He wouldn’t comment to reporters, though.

-Weird. Variety dubbed a video of Hustlers director Lorene Scafaria talking about how Fiona Apple is donating the money she earns from her song appearing in the film to refugees (the video Variety initially posted replaced the word “refugees” with “the movie”). After being called out, they reposted the video and called it a “glitch.”

-I really like this interview clip with Kristen Stewart on what sort of reactions she’s gotten since saying she was warned that she’d never get a Marvel movie if she came out. (I spotted her in the audience on Friday night with her gf at Jason Segel‘s film The Friend, which I don’t think she has a connection to.)

-I’m having a ridiculously good TIFF. Seven movies so far and none that I’ve hated. And I haven’t seen them yet, but people are losing their crap about how good Hustlers and Knives Out are. The only obvious flop so far: Nicole Kidman’s The Goldfinch.

-People also really loved The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. The compliment I keep hearing is that it’s endlessly quotable (which you wouldn’t know from this trailer).

 

Robert Pattinson Was “F**king Furious” Over Batman Leak

robert-pattinson-variety-batman

Robert Pattinson covers Variety and the interview is great. He discusses the initial rumors that he had been cast in Matt Reeves‘ Batfilm — and he hadn’t even gotten the chance to audition yet, let alone been cast. “When that thing leaked, I was fucking furious. Everyone was so upset. Everyone was panicking from my team. I sort of thought that had blown up the whole thing…I’d had Batman in my mind for a while. It’s such an absurd thing to say. I sort of had an idea to do it, and I’d been prodding Matt. He didn’t accept any prods. I kept asking to meet him.” He also talks about noticing an odd career pattern while shooting his latest film, The Lighthouse: “In the last three or four movies, I’ve got a masturbation scene. I did it in High Life. I did it in Damsel. And The Devil All the Time. I only realized when I did it the fourth time. But when I saw the clay figure of the mermaid, if you’re getting turned on by that, you’re in a very strange place in your life.”

-Speaking of good cover stories, Renee Zellweger talks about her comeback in NY Mag. This is the part that’s raising eyebrows: “It’s interesting that both Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli married gay men, I say, and here she makes the most complicated and hilarious face imaginable, one that seems to say, all at once, Haven’t we all? And Go figure! ‘Cute’s cute,’ she says. ‘Handsome is handsome! Sweet is sweet. If it works…I mean, I mean! Sometimes it just doesn’t really matter. It just dudn’t. If there’s a spark, it just is, and who needs to explain it?’ (At the moment, she’s single, after a long relationship with a musician; her previous high-profile boyfriends include Bradley Cooper, Kenny Chesney, Jim Carrey, and George Clooney.)”

Timothee Chalamet won the Venice red carpet this weekend with the suit that launched a thousand tweets.

-Run to Jodie Smith‘s IG stories RIGHT NOW to see the videos she shot of boyfriend Joshua Jackson in bed with her.

Brad Pitt went to Kanye West’s Sunday Service this weekend, which is…huh.

-Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood got married on Sunday. When it comes to TV star weddings I’m always intrigued by which costars showed up — and which ones didn’t. Wood’s Vampire Diaries costar Paul Wesley, Supergirl’s Odette Annable, and Kevin Smith (who directed several SG episodes), were in attendance.

-Do you think that Harry Styles realized that too many people fell in love with him because of last week’s unbelievably charming Rolling Stone interview, so he was like “F-k it, I’ll just get a bowl cut so y’all will leave me alone.”

-Congrats to Lizzo, who just earned her very first Billboard No. 1 song with “Truth Hurts.”

-This is a very, very sweet video of the Jonas Brothers showing up at a 16-year-old fan’s hospital room because she had to miss their concert due to a chemo treatment.

This is a great piece on how shows like Fleabag, Younger, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel have ushered in a TV landscape that’s less interested in fairy-tale endings than the challenges of modern love.

-Speaking of TV, here’s my picks for the 10 new shows to watch this fall.

-Apple+ is not moving forward with its Richard Gere drama. It’s not a good sign that Apple reportedly did not like the show’s “tone of vigilante justice” and is looking for more “aspirational programming” (which sounds way too close to the happy/earnest vibe Disney+ is going for). On the plus side, maybe it’s ok that the show is dead because the premise sounds *horrible*: two elderly Vietnam veterans’ “lifelong regrets and secrets collide with their resentment of today’s self-absorbed millennials, and the duo go on a shooting spree.”

Christoph Waltz and Liam Hemsworth are going to star in a new Quibi series. It feels like every other day some major star signs onto Quibi, and I still don’t really get what it is.

-Critics are really, really digging the new Joker movie, which premiered at Venice over the weekend. I’m waiting for more female critics to weigh in before I decide if I’m going to see it in theatres.

-I can’t believe how much I laughed at the Between Two Ferns movie trailer. “You killed Matthew McConaughey!”

Taika Waititi skewers Hitler in the new Jojo Rabbit trailer. This is the only ticket I’m really wishing I would have scored for TIFF this weekend, but it sold out SO FAST.
