Laura Dern on the Highs and Lows of Parenthood

Laura Dern Opens Up About Being A Single Parent

-Why isn’t Laura Dern on more magazine covers?? She talks about being a single parent to her two teenagers from her marriage to Ben Harper. “Raising kids gave me enough street cred to feel like I deserved the right to make money. This moment in my life is so sexy and freeing because I’ve had many relationships, I’ve had a marriage, I have my amazing children, so I’m not hiding who I am to get somebody who is willing to have kids or be married.”

-How many times have you listened to Taylor Swift’s Lover album today? I’m on three so far. Critics seem to be mostly loving it. (IMO, the standout tracks are Cruel Summer, Miss Americana & the Heartbreak Prince, and Soon You’ll Get Better.)

-Meanwhile, Taylor‘s new song “Death By a Thousand Cuts” was inspired by the Netflix movie Someone Great starring Gina Rodriguez. “I cried watching the movie and so for about week, I started waking up from dreams that I’m living out that scenario. I woke up and was like oh my god I’m writing a breakup song.”

-The album also features a surprise Idris Elba cameo in the form of a soundbite from his 2017 interview with James Corden.

-Speaking of new music, Missy Elliott‘s new video “Throw It Back” is fire.

Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Holland took a hike together and my head cannon is that it was RDJ’s attempt to help Tom navigate the career whiplash of being groomed as Tony Stark’s heir in the MCU, only to have corporate greed rip it all away.

-Lots of Disney+ news coming out of DX23 Expo today, including confirmation that The Mandalorian (the first live-action Star Wars series) will start streaming Nov 12, a Ms. Marvel series in the works, and this Bill Hader/Anna Kendrick holiday film!

-Aw geez. Brandon Routh and his wife Courtney Ford are out of Legends of Tomorrow. From his social media responses, it sounds like it wasn’t their decision to leave the show.

Victoria Beckham getting angry with David for being so much better at yoga than her is a mood.

Madonna has Miley Cyrus’s back.

Miley will reportedly fight to keep the animals she shared with Liam Hemsworth—seven dogs, two horses, two mini horses, three cats, and a pig.

Kirsten Dunst‘s new dark comedy, which debuts Sunday night, is getting good reviews.

-The scrutiny on Prince Andrew continues to heighten.

-This is a wild story about how Vanity Fair, ABC News and The NYTimes were intimidated or sidetracked from the Jeffrey Epstein story long before his recent arrest. It even includes a cat’s severed head in the front yard of the editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair and bullets placed on front doors as a warning.

Adam Driver, Jon Hamm and Corey Stoll star in The Report trailer, about CIA agents who begin using extreme interrogation tactics after 9/11.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Montreal Date Night

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have taken their PDA tour to Montreal.

-Twitter is in chaos over this late-breaking Deadline report that Sony has ended its agreement with Marvel Studios, pulling Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Kevin Feige no longer being a part of the production of the sequels. The knee jerk reaction is that this is a really bad move on Sony’s part, who seem to believe that their success with Venom and Into the Spiderverse means they’re creatively strong enough to go it alone. But I can’t help but wonder if Disney leaked the news of the breakdown in talks to get fans all riled up and make the optics so bad they they force Sony to accept Disney’s bonkers demand for a 50/50 profit split. The next Tom Holland-led Spider-Man movie isn’t supposed to land until 2022. That’s a lot of time to weaponize fan outcry and negotiate using the press.

-Speaking of crazy movie news, Matrix 4 is officially a go with Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Lana Wachowski all signed on. What is happening today?!?

-A second person has come forward accusing Katy Perry of sexual harassment.

-This Variety cover story about how celebrities are  driving the podcast revolution is … odd. Nearly every good podcast I’ve listened to, from when I started ten years ago to today, comes from writers/journalists.

Adam Brody shot down rumours of a reboot of The OC but honestly, I could see it happening based on where all those actors ended up career-wise.

Brody Jenner is speaking up for his ex Kaitlynn Carter, saying there is “far too much negativity” being directed at her since photos of her and Miley Cyrus surfaced. Which is kind of a decent thing for him to do, so I’m very confused.

-Oh and Brody and Kaitlynn weren’t actually married. Neither were Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. This article about all the celebrities who’ve had weddings without legally getting married is bananas.

-The most followed YouTuber, PewDiePie, just got married. The teen in your life really cares about this, trust.

-I don’t watch Neftlix’s Elite, but my entire TL was very excited about this new season 2 trailer.

-This is the time of year when TV DVD sets hit, which means this is when we get the most blooper reels. Here’s the latest from Arrow, Schitt’s Creek, and Riverdale.

-It’s crazy to me that a British dramedy that critics are comparing to Fleabag and that stars Sharon Horgan from Catastrophe and Tobias Menzies from Outlander is not only debuting this week to so little fanfare that I had never even heard about it before Sepinwall posted his review, but a bunch of TV critics whose job it is to know these things were also in the dark.

-Succession has been renewed for season 3. I love those rich assholes.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver break down a Marriage Story in two new teasers for Noah Baumbach‘s upcoming drama, which tells the story of a divorce from two different perspectives.

Arrow Bows Out with EW Cover

Arrow EW stephen amell caity lotz grant gustin

-I’ve given up on most of the Arrowverse shows, but good on EW for finally giving them a cover (the first monthly issue since they dropped the weekly format) in honor of Arrow’s final, shortened season.  Amell looks hella tired though.

Tom Holland was spotted looking cozy with a girl who is NOT Zendaya and we’re all a little bit heartbroken.

-Ok, critics who’ve seen Veronica Mars’ new season keep warning about the “gutting” ending and I’m getting really worried. The latest is from Vulture: “It’s worth noting that some of the season’s concluding events will make some viewers, very, very, very mad. Really, incandescently mad.”

-Gossip Girl is coming back! An update just landed a straight-to-series order at Warner’s new streaming platform HBO Max, with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage returning as EPs. It’ll be interesting to see how it’ll work with today’s social media. Will the new GG be more like a Diet Prada or Shade Room?

-I don’t even watch The Bachelorette but this recap is great.

-In advance of Friday’s trailer, the Cats movie released a featurette starring Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Rebel Wilson and more. I’m still not entirely convinced this whole movie isn’t a prank. Between director Tom Hopper talking about how it’s a “timely story about diversity and inclusion” and James Corden saying “These are people but they’re cats. This is kind of blowing my mind,” it definitely feels like a prank.

-Time has named the 25 most influential people on the internet.

-This thread of Fleabag scenes makes me want to rewatch it even though I JUST DID.

R. Kelly pleaded not guilty to new federal charges and has been denied bail. The singer faces 18 combined charges for alleged crimes against 10 victims.

-Prosecutors have dropped Kevin Spacey‘s criminal sexual assault case due to his accuser’s “unavailability.”

-HBO didn’t submit Gwendoline Christie for an Emmy so she paid the $225 fee, submitted herself and got a nomination, which is the most Brienne thing ever.

-Wait, Mr. Robot is still on TV??!

-Two months after NBC canceled A.P. Bio, the sitcom has been revived — on NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming service.

-The first trailer for Hustling, starring Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Lizzo and Cardi B, has arrived. Inject this directly into my eyeballs please!!! (Also, if you’ve never read The Cut article that this movie is based on, it’s a wild ride.)
