Kaley Cuoco Admits to Nose, Boob Job


***NOTE: I need to go someplace warm and veg by a pool for a few days. I’ll be back next week!***

-In a new magazine interview, Kaley Cuoco readily admits that she’s had her nose and breasts done and it’s … weirdly refreshing? That’s where I am with celebrities at this point: pleasantly surprised when they’re not lying their faces off. Sigh.

-Surprise! Nick Cannon confirmed he’s expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.

Drake‘s crush on sports reporter Doris Burke might be my new favourite thing. “Dinner at my house anytime. As long as she comes alone.”

-Damn, Tom Hiddleston. When you have to dress up in an ape suit to hype your new movie, that’s probably not a good sign.

-Twist! The creator of Gilmore Girls just revealed that Luke was originally written to be a female character.

Eddie Redmayne says he auditioned for Les Miserables with Taylor Swift and she was “extraordinary.” But not extraordinary enough to get cast, I guess…

Isla Fisher poked fun of the fact that no one can tell her apart from Amy Adams by pasting Amy’s face over hers on her family holiday card.

-This is a good look at the strange disappearance of Ed, the wonderful charmbomb of a show that time forgot. Now excuse me while I go and rewatch Ed and Carol’s wedding in the finale. *sob*

-Yay! Another new Childish Gambino song has dropped. It’s Prince-y.

-I really liked this conversation between Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianna Margulies and Chelsea Handler about girl breakups. I’m not sure I agree with Margulies that women are more emotional than men. I just think that sometimes female friendships run deeper, but we don’t talk about them or analyze them like we do our relationships, so when shit goes sideways it knocks us down hard.

-This article on how TV is entering film territory when it comes to actor (and showrunner) paydays is nuts. Robert De Niro is getting $750,000 per episode for an upcoming Amazon series, while Meryl Streep is scoring $850k per episode of JJ Abrams’ The Nix, which doesn’t even have a network attached yet.

-Good dress on Nicole Kidman here.

-The international trailer for La La Land has arrived. Also, they released Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s duet, which was in my head on repeat for weeks after seeing that movie.

-Oh yeah, The Affair returns this weekend. I really liked last season — and then promptly forgot all about it.

Jessica Chastain hides people from Nazis in her giant zoo in the new trailer for The Zookeeper’s Wife.

Leslie Jones Had the Most Fun at the Emmys

Leslie Jones was all of us by getting selfies at the Emmys with pretty much every TV star alive. And also John Mayer.

-Like Leslie, Pedro Pascal also seemed to  make the most of his time at the Emmys.

-That was a shockingly great Emmy Awards, right? It ended on time, was surprisingly inclusive, and (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Game of Thrones’ aside) honoured plenty of new blood and niche series (Regina King won the ONLY Emmy for a network show last night). It’s the first time in years the show didn’t leave me rage-y. I even loved most of the dresses!

-Of course, the Emmy telecast hit an all-time ratings low because life.

-The kids from Stranger Things performed “Uptown Funk” at the Emmys preshow. God, I love them so much.

-Speaking of the Stranger Things cast, Steve’s hair really does look like that IRL!

Tom Hiddleston flirting with Priyanka Chopra makes a lot more sense to me than whatever that Hiddleswift stuff was.

-Also, the after-party photos are further proof that we all need to go drinking with Matthew Rhys.

-Friday Night Light stars Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler gave me all the feels this week, first with her birthday wish to him and then with their reunion pic.

-Whoa. I don’t usually put a lot of stock in Radar stories but they’ve reportedly been working on this one about an A-lister involved in a a Hollywood pedophile sex ring for four years. And whoa. We’ll have to see if anything comes of it.

-My Name Is Earl star Jason Lee is the latest celeb to flee Scientology.

Shailene Woodley says she’s “always dreamed” of writing a book on female masturbation. It’s good to have dreams.

Bella Thorne (who was reportedly dating her brother’s ex-girlfiend recently) was spotted kissing Tyler Posey (who recently pretended to come out). Kids today!

Gillian Anderson has no problem with all the talk about reinventing James Bond with her as the lead. (Nor do I.)

-I have yet to finish Fargo season 2, but season 3 will star Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Carrie Coon so I’m already in.

-Fall TV officially starts tonight with the premiere of the new Kristen Bell sitcom The Good Place, which is getting great reviews. (The fact that NBC is airing three episodes this week before settling into its regular timeslot is hella confusing, though.)

-Probably the best-reviewed new show of the season, This Is Us, also debuts this week. The only bad review I’ve read so far still makes me want to watch it, just for this: “This Is Us is invigoratingly heinous. Bad TV is a commonplace, but a true Mount Everest of bullshit is rare.” (Though I swear to god, if the big twist in the pilot is that Mandy Moore dies, I’m gonna throat punch someone. Girlfriend’s been trying to land a steady TV gig for a decade!)

Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow played Friends trivia and killed it.

-Aww, this really bums me out: Anthony Bourdain and his wife Ottavia Busia have split after 9 years together.

-This is a really good look at how FX became TV’s best, most reliable network.

Michael Shannon was my favourite thing about Nocturnal Animals. I love him. I also love that he just freely slammed directors, saying Woody Allen and Alexander Payne are “not nice.

Amal Clooney says that George gets worried when she takes ISIS leaders to trial. No doubt.

-I had a great time at this year’s TIFF (which you can read all about here), but I fully agree with Variety’s take on how it’s become a bit of a dumping ground. It’s trying to be both an industry buying hotspot and a cinephile’s festival, and it can no longer pull it off.

-Yikes. Will Ferrell just dropped out of his next project days before shooting was supposed to begin.

-Wait, the girl who played Marissa is joining The Good Wife spinoff? But I’ve already vowed to not watch it!

-Everyone’s hating on Jimmy Fallon for his Donald Trump interview but like, what exactly were they expecting?

-This article on the significance behind Shonda Rhimes’ characters’ alcohol preferences is the perfect antidote to Mondays.

-I mean, does a couple that’s only been together 6 weeks really warrant articles on their breakup?

-Here’s a very, very brief look at Passengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt.

Gillian Anderson Talks X Files Pay Fight


Gillian Anderson looks lovely in the new Harper’s Bazaar UK, where she talks about feminism, sexual identity and why she went public when she was offered half of David Duchovny‘s salary. “That is a blatant inequality. They’re not going to make The X-Files without me. They’re either going to step up to the plate or they’re not going to make them at all, so I don’t really feel that I put my neck out in any way.”

Patrick Dempsey sure is saying a lot of words in his People cover story. He talks about reconciling with his wife (“You’ve got to communicate, and stay open and not get lazy. And not give up. And lots of sex!”) and tries to make us believe that killing McDreamy was a joint decision with Shonda Rhimes. Uh huh.

-Lainey’s analysis of how Tom Hiddleston is controlling the breakup narrative is all kinds of fascinating. I seriously didn’t know he had this in him.

-Meanwhile, Idris Elba and Chris Hemsworth interrupted Tom Hiddleston’s acceptance speech for the TV Choice Awards, and it was adorable.

-I’m actually surprised it took Jessica Biel this long to realize she’s a TV girl and not a movie girl.

-Why is Drake‘s dad trying to burst our Drake/Rihanna bubble? WHY?!?!

-Meanwhile, Drake reportedly “went ballistic” after thieves ripped off millions in jewelry from tour bus. Seems fair.

Justin Theroux with a beard is making me feel…things.

-Not surprisingly, Brad Pitt is no fan of Donald Trump. “What does he even mean, take our country back?”

-Let’s all just simmer down with that talk of Daniel Craig getting a $150 million James Bond payday, ok?

-Whoa. After all the mud they slung at each other, I was not expecting Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez to quietly call off their divorce.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have finally settled their custody battle over 16-year-old son Rocco.

Taran Killam did a short about leaving SNL, shot in the style of the NFL show Hard Knocks.

-I really like this interview with Greg Berlanti on superhero TV-making (though I’m bummed they didn’t ask him about his time on Dawson’s Creek. He pushed through Jack’s first kiss with a guy, and the Pacey/Joey romance. If you ever want to take a deep dive into TV production, read The Billion Dollar Kiss.)

-Speaking of Dawson’s Creek, here’s a photo of Joshua Jackson wet and on a surfboard. Because I love you.

Zayn Malik is developing an NBC series with Dick Wolf inspired by One Direction. So many parts of that sentence confuse me.

-Wait, Gavin Rossdale is now dating Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, Elin Nordegren? Huh.

-This is a riveting profile of Tom Ford, who opens up about his battle with depression and sobriety. “Death is all I think about. There is not a day or really an hour that goes by that I don’t think about death.”

-Good to see the early reviews of Netflix’s new show Luke Cage are glowing.

-I think I’m going to stop reading about the Gilmore Girls revival because it’s getting too spoilery. Like, do we really need the 1st page of the script? (I did appreciate the “you’ve been Goop’d” burn, though).

Gwyneth Paltrow says she wouldn’t consciously uncouple via Goop again. “It sort of wouldn’t be appropriate now. It is a much bigger business and I’m not sure it would be the right place to do something like that.”

-Why doesn’t anyone seem to like this Chanel dress on Keira Knightley? I’m coveting the shit out of it.

-Meanwhile, Keira would like you to know that she’s not going bald.

Will Smith meets Love (Keira Knightley) and Death (Helen Mirren) in the first Collateral Beauty. The movie looks intriguing, but it opens against Rogue One.
