Emily Blunt Flies High on Vogue

-I kind of wish Emily Blunt’s Vogue cover wasn’t in character, but her doing 73 Questions in the magazine’s office has a very cute Devil Wears Prada vibe (complete with a great surprise cameo).

James Corden recruited Noah Centineo in an “All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” parody called “To All the Guests I’ve Loved Before.” I was legit shipping them by the end of this. That’s the power of Centineo!

-Also on Corden’s show, Busy Philipps called out Centineo for ghosting her friend, which he awkwardly laughed off. But TMZ reports that at actor’s team did some damage control and got the segment edited down for the YouTube version so that it wouldn’t damage his “good boy-next-door image.”

-First she was trolling for interviews, now it’s endorsement deals. Lindsay Lohan needs a team.

Ashton Kutcher says Mila Kunis scheduled his bday party at the bar in Thousand Oaks that was the scene of a mass shooting. “Only reason we are alive is the shooter chose a different night.”

Adam Driver may have managed to keep the fact that he and his wife have a son a secret for two years, which is some Jedi mind-trick goodness.

Bill Murray intervened after a male fan pushed his female friend at Sydney Airport.

Hilary Duff can’t stop gushing about drinking a planceta smoothie — no matter how much we wish she would.

Viggo Mortensen has apologized after using the n-word at a Green Book panel.

-The Spice Girls are now saying that they never officially asked Victoria Beckham to be part of the reunion. Sure, let’s go with that.

-Meanwhile, no one is more excited for the Spice Girls reunion than Emma Stone. No. One.

-Did The Queen and Meghan Markle have a tense exchange over her wedding tiara?

Sir Ian McKellen revealed that he and Dame Judi Dench once misbehaved at Buckingham Palace.

John Mayer wants to assure everyone that he’s not a dick anymore. “I can tell you for sure that I haven’t been a dick in many years. That’s a really outdated take.” Well, I’m convinced!

-At least 8 shots were fired in an apparent drive-by on set of a music video in Beverly Hills featuring Tekashi 6ix9ine, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj50 Cent shared photos of the damage.

Ezra Miller dressed up like a fancy dalek at the Fantastic Beast premiere.

-Meanwhile, the reviews for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are pretty bleak, hovering around 58% rotten.

-The Affair is doing a 20-year jump into the future, with Anna Paquin joining the cast as Joanie. I guess that’s one way to get around the fact that most of your regulars have jumped ship.

-The first footage from Luther’s new season is here. It’s only supposed to be a couple of episodes but Ruth Wilson is rumoured to be returning and I cannot wait!!

Victoria Beckham Explains Why She Doesn’t Want a Spice Girls Reunion

Victoria Beckham covers Vogue Australia

Victoria Beckham looks amazing in the pages of Vogue Australia (though I’m not sold on the flesh-coloured bandeau). In the interview, she talks about why she doesn’t want to do a Spice Girls reunion (“I always wanted to do fashion, so I was lucky that music was never my main passion. For the other girls it was”) and why she left the group in the first place (“I remember sitting very near to the front [at an Elton John concert] and looking at him singing those songs he’d sung time after time, year after year, and his passion and his enjoyment was incredible, even after all that time. And a few nights later, I was on stage at Madison Square Garden with the Spice Girls and I thought: ‘It’s almost like a waste that I’m given this opportunity. I appreciate the time I’ve had with the girls, but I don’t have what Elton can have after all these years.’ There was nothing there, other than that my kids were in the audience and I wanted them to see Mummy doing the Spice Girls.”).

Bryan Singer is working hard to get ahead of an article that Esquire is about to publish an article that he says will ruin his career.

-This article about how Timothee Chalamet is the perfect movie star for 2018 (according to producers, agents and studio execs) is so, so weird.  There’s lots of talk about how he’s a soft “beta” and not a hard “alpha” like Leonardo DiCaprio by people who clearly forget that Leo was a teen heartthrob for decades (“He’s pretty fey,” says one veteran studio hand and Academy voter in his 60s. “He might be the next Anthony Perkins, rather than the next Leo”).  This part is especially gross: “Girls love him now because I don’t think they’re scared of him…You’re selling the new male. What does the new male movie star look like in a post #MeToo world, where you can’t get away with all the things the alpha guys used to crush it at?” What exactly were you trying to get away with before?!

-Speaking of articles that deal a lot about traditional movie star archetypes, Viggo Mortensen talks about how not becoming famous until he was in his 40s helped him avoid celebrity traps. I have mixed feelings about Green book — I liked it but it’s problematic — but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s part of the mix when Oscar talk comes around. (Also, I can’t believe he’s going to be 60 in 5 days!)

-I was genuinely surprised by Meghan Markle’s pregnancy announcement. I wonder how Princess Eugenie feels about the fact that they announced it to the family at her wedding?

-Twitter is fantasy casting a movie with Kerry Washington and Chris Evans, and Washington is into it because she’s no fool.

Jennifer Garner says an Alias reboot may be in the works. Despite my reboot fatigue, I don’t hate this idea.

-Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Scott Thomas have designed sweaters, with proceeds going to their fave charities.

Nicole Kidman has not one, but two movies that are generating Oscar buzz (Boy Erased and Destroyer) so she’ll be doing quite a bit of press in the next few months. Still, I’m surprised that she talked about Tom Cruise in a new interview while addressing #MeToo: “I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of [the marriage] at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”

-I really like Ariana Grande and I hope she’s doing ok after her split from Pete Davidson. At least it happened before the wedding.

-On a new podcast, Taran Killam got candid about the mood behind the scenes on SNL: “When Seth Meyers left the show, the dynamic changed quite a bit. He was the last person there who I witnessed really collaborate with Lorne, as opposed to just kind of do what Lorne says.”

Drake comes off really, really well when talking about his drama with Pusha T in Lebron James’ new HBO show The Shop.

Ansel Elgort is living two different lives in the Jonathan trailer.
