Gillian Anderson Goes Nude For PETA

gillian-anderson-naked-peta

-The last time Gillian Anderson stripped down for an animal rights campaign, she posed with a gross, giant eel. The cat ears in her new campaign are a welcome twist.

-I love Amy AdamsWarhol-inspired cover shoot for Garage magazine.

Quincy JonesVulture Q&A is astoundingly entertaining. He snipes about what bad musicians The Beatles were (“Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it”), and dishes about dating Ivanka Trump (“She had the most beautiful legs I’ve ever seen in my life. Wrong father, though”).

-Speaking of old gossip, Richard Pryor’s widow confirmed he slept with Marlon Brando, and Twitter imploded.

-Ellen turned Milo Ventimiglia‘s appearance on her show into a wet tshirt contest, and I’m not complaining.

-Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan told Ellen that he “barely had a social life” while filming Black Panther.

-Is it getting weird that Bryan Fuller can’t seem to stick to a project these days?

Jennifer Aniston gave Architectural Digest a tour of her $21 million dollar home. I’m not sure if I’m still recovering from seeing pics of Hilary Duff and Mindy Kaling’s odd design choices,  but I’m really liking this. It looks like people actually live here.

Sarah Jessica Parker (who looks amazing these days) couldn’t keep it together when playing Mad Libs with Jimmy Fallon.

Scott Speedman is joining the cast of Grey’s Anatomy and I have never re-added a show to my DVR quicker…

-The Spice Girls officially announced a reuion tour. Say you’ll be there!

Tom Cruise shared a look at the helicopter stunt from his new Mission Impossible and it’s insane. He flew the damn thing himself!

-The closer we get to the Oscars, the more articles I’m seeing about how Three Billboards is a problematic mess. I like it but I also kinda agree?

Harrison Ford was a covert adviser to Solo: A Star Wars Story, giving advice and backstory to Alden Ehrenreich. I’m so intrigued by how this is going to turn out, seeing as there’s been lots of talk of Ehrenreich needing hand-holding and acting coaches to play Han.

-The first Deadpool 2 trailer delivers our first look at Josh Brolin as Cable.

-The ghosts of the past come back in the new Jessica Jones trailer, which looks so, so good! This is how you cut a trailer, Hollywood.

Tom Cruise’s Buttgate

-The possibility of Tom Cruise wearing a fake butt in Valkyrie is literally making my week.

-Well, this is a twist: Selena Gomez’s Instagram was hacked and used to post nude photos of Justin Bieber.

-Speaking of hacks, Katharine McPhee is suing over her nude photo leak.

Joshua Jackson is dating a model and I hope she recognizes what a precious unicorn he is.

-This is a really, really good interview with Kathy Griffin on the aftermath of her controversial Trump photo. Yes, it was a stupid move, but her being made to constantly apologize over a picture is ridiculous.

George Clooney is kicking off his Suburbicon press tour, which means we’re about to be blessed with lots of glorious soundbites. In a new interview with the AP, he rips apart Trump, saying he’s “in over his head” and “incapable of being president.” He also talked about twin barf.

-Leaks, schmeaks. Game of Thrones logged another all-time high on Sunday with 16.5M night-of viewers.

-This is really weird GoT gossip: apparently Lena Headey (Cersei) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) used to date and now hate each other IRL.

-Speaking of all things Thrones, here’s the first teaser for Kit Harington‘s upcoming drama, Gunpowder.

Reese Witherspoon will guest-star on The Mindy Project? Sure.

Beyoncé, Kevin Hart, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Drake and more have pledged to help Houston. Sandra Bullock just outshined them all by donating $1 million to help Hurricane Harvey victims, saying “We have to take care of one another.”

-Twenty years after Buffy, costume designer Cynthia Bergstrom is sharing some throwback behind-the-scenes fun facts. True story: I went to a costume party last weekend and I made friends by yelling at a girl on the dance floor “Oh my god, are you dressed as Buffy about to fight the Master in the S1 finale?!” It was awesome.

-More proof that Hollywood needs new ideas: the summer box office is tracking to miss $4 billion mark for first time since 2006.

-This is a good rundown of when all the new and returning TV shows start this fall.

-When the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans debuted, everyone made fun of Medusa’s hair. The second trailer features her with a shaved head. It’s not much better.

Zendaya Lands Her First Vogue Cover

Zendaya looks stunning on the cover of Vogue’s July issue, in which she talks about making demands to Disney execs when she was only 16, and learning trapeze for her new movie.

-THR’s TV Comedy Actress roundtable features Emmy Rossum, Issa Rae, America Ferrera, Pamela Adlon, Minnie Driver, and Katherine Hahn. Among the best bits: Rossum says William H. Macy supported her most during her equal pay fight, Adlon remembered having a similar battle on Californication, Driver talked about directors building ditches for her to stand in when kissing shorter costars instead of just making the actor stand on an apple box, and Hahn talked about always getting typecast as the BFF and pitched a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-type movie where she and Judy Greer are the leads, and every so often you see Kate Hudson running around in the background. (I would watch that.)

Beyonce might be having her twins right now and the internet is melting down.

Jessica Chastain would like everyone to stop looking at her wedding photos, which were taken by paps in a helicopter. Fair enough (though I’ll be interested to see if she shares them herself eventually, or sells them to a pub).

-I posted a few days ago about Jake Johnson‘s awesome story about Tom Cruise being the nicest guy ever. Here are 18 more.

-On the flip side, did he have too much say in The Mummy script?

Elizabeth Banks really stepped in it yesterday when she used an acceptance speech to call out legendary director Steven Spielberg for failing to make female-lead films. Shari Belafonte pointed out The Color Purple, but Banks simply “moved on.” This white feminism bullshit is getting worse.

-Update: Elizabeth tweeted an apology. She’s a producer and a director now; lets hope she learns from this and hires all types of women for her next projects.

-Speaking of famous white women being woke-light, the NYT profile on Katy Perry did her no favours. The writer calls her out repeatedly, saying “in our interview, she proclaimed herself devoted to dialogue but spoke in a near uninterrupted monologue.” It’s like when DeRay Mckesson asked her about cultural appropriation during her live-stream and she talked for two minutes straight but never actually apologized.

-This is depressing: the Cosby jury is deadlocked. They deliberated for 30 hours over 4 days before telling the judge they couldn’t reach a verdict. He’s ordered them back for more deliberations.

-Making a Murderer fans: Steven Avery‘s lawyer says she thinks the victim’s ex-boyfriend killed her.

Rebel Wilson won her defamation case against a magazine publisher: “I had to stand up to a bully.”

-Sweet! The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira is joining the cast of Avengers: Infinity War.

-I can’t believe I somehow missed this last week: Tobey Maguire and ex-wife Jennifer Meyer attended their daughter’s school production of Beauty & the Beast, and all their A-list friends came, including Leonardo DiCaprio (with his wolf pack), Courteney Cox and Gwyneth Paltrow. I bet the other kids felt like crap when only their grandparents showed up for them.

-The Wolf Pack has moved on to NYC and picked up Orlando Bloom.

Gwyneth Paltrow says she’s moving away from acting to focus on Goop. So I guess I’m moving towards ridiculing her full time.

DeMario Jackson broke his silence over those Bachelor In Paradise allegations, saying “my character has been assassinated.”

-Also, this article on drunken hook-ups on reality TV is unnerving. “There are implied incentives available to cast members who are down to fool around.”

Karrueche Tran has beeng granted a five-year restraining order against Chris Brown.

Ryan Seacrest is on the cover of THR with the crazy story of the secret, heated negotiations to bring him back to the rebooted American Idol. After blowing the record-breaking $25 million to hire Katy Perry, producers went back to Seacrest with half of their original offer and things got tense.

-I really like both Chrissy Teigen and Colton Haynes, but these interviews are way too TMI.

Josh Brolin is getting seriously buff for Deadpool 2.

-How the hell is Johnny Depp still getting handed first-look deals? How many bombs is he going to have to have before Hollywood moves on?

Elle Macpherson has split from her billionaire husband.

-National treasure Diane Keaton candidly listed the celebs she is and isn’t friends with.

-I watched The Leftovers series finale a week ago and avoided articles/podcasts up until now because I wanted to have time to digest it. (I’ve changed my mind three times since then about whether or not I believe Nora’s story, but I’m holding firm in my first impression that it was a near-perfect finale.) Now that I’m looking up what was written about it, I’m astounded by Vulture’s deep dive. Their writer was basically embedded with the show for months to create this feature. It verges a little into ‘how the sausage is made’ territory, but even if you’ve never seen the show, this is a great read for anyone interested in how TV works.

-Rough Night is only at 55% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it got good reviews from two critics I usually agree with, so that’s promising.

-This is an interesting look at how much Netflix is paying for new TV shows (word is that they’re investing $4 per subscriber on original content.) Basically, they “must spend like a drunken sailor to compete with TV networks.”

-Do NOT put Lindsay Lohan and Jane Austen in the same headline, People! Don’t you effing dare!

Aisha Tyler emotionally announced on today’s show that she’s leaving The Talk: “I just realized I had to let something go”. Can’t say I’m surprised. She’s at Seacrest-levels of work, with Criminal Minds, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Archer, her podcast, her cocktail company and hitting the festival circuit with her directorial debut. I don’t even know if I’ve ever watched an episode of The Talk but when she started sob-heaving in that clip I got teary.

-The new Friends From College trailer stars Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage and Keegan-Michael Key.
