Sebastian Stan Gives Us An Early Xmas Present

CARTER SMITH/Men’s Health

-I didn’t really get the Sebastian Stan stans until I saw him this fall at TIFF in a movie in which Shailene Woodley‘s character can’t decide between his character or Jamie Dornan‘s so she dates them both (aka – living the dream) and he was adorably swoon-worthy during the Q&A. This Men’s Health photo spread (and the charming interview that accompanies it) is making me like him even more.

Channing Tatum and Jessie J reportedly split up a month ago after dating for a little over a year.

Kim Kardashian posted some photos of inside her house and no one can figure out what is on her walls. Giant sculptural toilet paper rolls? Artistic tampons?

-I love how supportive Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are with their kids. In a new interview, he says “they born a certain way and you say they gotta be that way but that’s not life, man. I watched my son from day one become into who she now has eventually come into. For me it’s all about nothing changes with my love. Nothing changes with my responsibilities. Only thing I gotta do now is get smarter and educate myself more.”

-In a new lawsuit, Harvey Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting a model when she was just 16.

John Boyega wore a traditional Nigerian robe designed by his sister to the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiere, so I guess we should forgive him for trashing The Last Jedi.

-Ooh boy, J.K. Rowling continues to be problematic. She tweeted her support of U.K. researcher Maya Forstater — whose contract at her job was not renewed because she tweeted anti-trans sentiments such as “men cannot change into women.”

-Forget those early semi-positive reactions to Cats — the critics have spoken and it’s “a furry orgy in a dumpster.” I am very intrigued that it apparently has “more crotch shots than a Michael Bay movie.” Also, this is my fave tweet about it so far.

-I didn’t watch the Survivor reunion show but apparently Jeff Probst actually acknowledged how much they screwed up this season, so I guess that’s something.

-The Flash star Candice Patton was called out by the wife of baseball star JR Smith for having an affair with her husband, but he took to Instagram to say he’d been separated for months.

-This video of the Olsen twins wishing Ashley Benson a happy birthday is…odd.

-I always forget that Penn Badgley is married to Domino Kirke (Jemima‘s sister).

-The trailer for To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You dropped today and man I needed that so bad today.

Will Smith took Tom Holland to a spooky escape room. (“I saved the planet from zombies and aliens a couple of times so you gotta expect this.”)

Taylor Swift’s Holiday Home Movies

Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm so it makes sense that she wrote a holiday song called “Christmas Tree Farm.” The video, released just days after she wrote the tune, features home movies of her as a kid and is undeniably adorable.

-Queer Eye’ star Jonathan Van Ness is the first non-female to grace a Cosmo cover since Boy George.

Jennifer Garner showed off her giant Christmas tree. “I’m not sure this is the tree we picked out. It’s a little aggressive.” (Also, she says ‘foyer’ weird.)

-Variety went deep with Billy Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell for their new cover story.

-I friggin’ love that Robbie Amell did interviews for his new movie at Pai because it’s his fave Toronto restaurant. He’s not wrong. (Great cameo by Chef Nuit, too.)

James Corden and Max Greenfield made an aspiring screenwriter’s dreams come true in a Starbucks.

-My god, just shut down every version of Big Brother immediately. This show is a trainwreck in every country.

-In honour of Marriage Story hitting Netflix today, Vulture did a feature on how Adam Driver looks ridiculously tall in that movie. (“What we are gathered here today to discuss is how much fun it is to see Adam Driver, big boy, squeeze himself into small things.”)

-Wait, now Amy Sedaris is in The Mandalorian? I’m gonna have to watch this sucker, aren’t I?

-This is a very good, very deep dive into the reporting style of the National Enquirer.

-All the brands who replied to this Netflix tweet nailed it. (Scroll through the photos for responses.)

Tom Holland may have saved the Spider-Man movies by drunkenly calling Disney head Bob Iger at a pub in tears. “I’m like three pints in, I haven’t eaten much…I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end.”

Keri Russell and Oscar Isaac are the real dream duo on this promo tour.

-Here’s a lovely moment of Jodie Whittaker getting a silver disc for her cover of Coldplay’s Yellow.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne star in the trailer for The Aeronauts, a film that got lukewarm reviews on the festival circuit.

 

Jennifer Aniston Talks Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein

Jennifer Aniston covers Variety to promote her new Apple series The Morning Show, and talks about researching Matt Lauer before filming  (“It’s such a strange thing; it felt oddly like my dad did something terrible. I trusted him and had been interviewed by him. He was there for so many moments in my life. And when Friends was ending, it was Katie [Couric] and Matt interviewing us”), says that Harvey Weinstein knew not to bully her (“He knew better. I remember, right when [his ex-wife] Georgina’s clothing line Marchesa was starting. That’s when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He’d be like, ‘Ok, so I’d like you to wear one of these to the premiere.’ And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.’ That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress'”), and explains why the Friends reunion hasn’t happened (“Because our producers wouldn’t want it, wouldn’t let us. Look, it’s not been without our desire to, because our fans have wanted it so much”).

Ann Curry tweeted about Matt Lauer‘s accuser: “Brooke Nevils is a credible young woman of good character. She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something, brimming with talent. I believe she is telling the truth. And that breaks my heart.”

-Meanwhile, Nevils has responded to his denial: “I am not afraid of him now, regardless of his threats, bullying, and the shaming and predatory tactics I knew he would (and now has) tried to use against me. The shame in this story belongs to him.”

-In Elle, Natalie Portman says she’s glad to have shaken off her “manic pixie dream girl” image from Garden State. “It’s definitely a relief to be out of the phase where you’re supposed to be adorable…It certainly is stifling to be the one who’s enacting someone else’s idea of how a young woman should behave.”

-Also in Elle, Zendaya opens up about her anxiety: “I already know after this interview is over, I’m going to spiral about it for weeks.”

Drew Barrymore just landed a daytime talk show. I think she’ll be great at it, but with new shows from Kelly Clarkson, Keke Palmer and RuPaul the field is getting crowded.

-Ruh roh. Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been fired from The Masked Singer Australia.

-Now that we’re all pretty much over Chris Pratt, which famous Chris should take his place in the best Chris ranking?

-Do you remember how after Fresh Prince, Will Smith said that he and his manager sat down and studied the top 10 grossing movies of all time to determine their comment elements, and then set out to only make those? This article highlights how his most recent career moves have been just as methodical.

-Suicide Squad’s Jared Leto reportedly felt “alienated and upset” when Warner Bros. decided to move ahead with a solo Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix. So there might be something redeeming about Joker after all!

-Movie stars continue to jump to Apple’s upcoming streaming service. Clive Owen and Julianne Moore have signed on for a new series.

-Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh appeared on The Social this week and talked about DMing Rihanna.

Robert Downey Jr. has asked not to be considered for an Oscar for Avengers: Endgame which is very nice but like, who told him he was being considered?

-I really like this piece on how Succession uses Shiv as a weapon. Everyone is so ruthless on this show that I think audiences automatically gravitate to the female characters like Gerri and Shiv for glimpses of humanity, and last week’s episode shattered that.

-Even though I’m about to get on an Air Canada flight and bracing myself for the worst (because it’s AC and they’re usually terrible), this commercial Sandra Oh did for them about how to travel like a Canadian is very cute. (Speaking of which I’m taking a few days off. Be back next week!)

Tom Holland and Chris Pratt voice teenage brothers on a quest to meet their dad in the trailer for Pixar’s Onward.
