-In her Glamour UK cover story, Victoria Beckham recalls being “mentally and physically” bullied as a child. “I was never the popular girl at school and I never found anything easy and I was told ‘No’ constantly…I was bullied a lot at school, mentally and physically, and the fact that I can talk to Harper about that and how girls should be kind to girls – really I use my own experiences and share that.”

Scaachi‘s excellent Buzzfeed profile of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca is what everyone is talking about today. It’s a roller coaster ride of an article that started being about Duca’s new book and her Twitter fame, and ended up being about how her entire NYU summer class filing a formal complaint against her.

-Ahead of her syndicated talk show (premiering Sept. 9), Kelly Clarkson covers People and talks about prioritizing her family (“When we were doing the schedule for the show, I was like, ‘I have to drop my kids off at school.’ And I’m always the one who puts them to bed”), impressing her kids (“Our 3-year-old doesn’t get it but the 5-year-old, she’s very clever. She’s already asked that I have Chris Martin on to sing ‘Yellow.’ It’s her favorite song”) and recounts bursting a cyst on her ovary while filming live finales of The Voice — just one week after suffering through a burst appendix while hosting the Billboard Music Awards (“Blake [Shelton] was talking to me and all of the sudden, everything he said just went away and I had to grab his arm and I was like, ‘Something is wrong.’ That was more painful than the appendicitis. It was literally a week after my surgery so I was freaking out!”).

-This interview with Joel Schumacher is so very, very juicy that the bit about a post-Pretty Woman Julia Roberts crying in his arms in the backseat of a car and saying “I never needed to be this famous” isn’t even the best anecdote! When asked about shooting Batman Forever he said: “Tommy Lee Jones is, and I say this with great respect, a scene stealer. Well, you can’t steal the scene from Jim Carrey. It’s impossible. And, I think it irked Tommy. He wasn’t kind to Jim. He did not act towards Jim the way an Oscar winner with a star on Hollywood Boulevard, being the oldest member of the cast, and having such a distinguished career and the accolades to go with it, should have acted towards Jim.” He also called Val Kilmer “psychotic.” “I do know Marlon Brando threw Val’s cellphone in the bushes [on the set of The Island of Dr. Moreau] and said, ‘Young man, don’t confuse your ego with the size of your salary, ever.’ Here’s the difference between Val Kilmer and Tommy Lee Jones. I don’t care what state Tommy is in emotionally, when that camera rolls, there is no bad take. Val is a different story.”

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.)
