Nicole Kidman Reflects on Family and Fame

Nicole Kidman Tatler Bombshell

Nicole Kidman is kicking off the Bombshell promo tour with her Tatler cover story, in which she talks about the death of her father (“My three-year-old said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, y’know, you have to be OK. Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’’t going to fall apart. Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally”).

Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson that is narrated by a talking glove. I hate all of those words.

-In a nice change of pace, Tom Hanks read some nice tweets.

Sia went to Walmart and TJ Maxx yesterday and paid everyone’s bills, telling people her name was Cici and she’d recently won the lottery.

John Boyega remains a delight.

Seth Meyers had his parents and brother on the show and they seem wonderfully well-adjusted and normal.

Beck has distanced himself from Scientology, saying “My father has been a Scientologist for a long time. But I’ve pretty much just focused on my music and my work for most of my life, and tended to do my own thing.” Leah Remini, however, is not buying it: “You can’t be married to a Scientology family such as the Ribisi family and not be fully on board. To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”

Sandra Bullock was at Jennifer Aniston’s Friendsgiving, as was Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Justin Theroux.

Chrissy Teigen turned John Legend’s ‘Sexiest Man’ People cover into pajamas for everyone to wear at Thanksgiving and I think I’m in love with her.

Dakota Johnson continues to be the most awkward person ever in interviews.

-Here’s video of Jennifer Garner losing her poo when Julie Andrews called her.

-French director Luc Besson could be hit with a 10-month suspended prison sentence — and not for the reasons you’d think. He allegedly fired his assistant illegally when she was on medical leave.

-It’s been a rough week in K-pop. Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon have been sentenced to prison terms on charges of sexual assault.

-Another week, another celeb: Jane Fonda recruited Paul Scheer for today’s “Fire Drill Friday” protests.

-It’s Black Friday or, as gossip hounds know it, CDAN blind item reveal day.

-The E.T. short is cute. Yes, it’s a commercial, but it’s still cute.

When Mariah Met Mellie

Millie Bobby Brown got to meet Mariah Carey. (Seriously though, every picture of MBB lately makes me double take. She looks so different and I can’t figure out what it is.)

-This might be the most cringe-worthy segment the Ellen Show has ever aired: Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and Ellen Degeneres debated which celeb male Charlize Theron should date, all while Charlize looked like she wanted to murder everyone in the room who was allowing this to happen. AND THEN they showed a photo of Kidman’s ex Lenny Kravitz and suddenly everyone had murder eyes.

-The Taylor Swift vs Scooter Braun feud kicked into high gear last night, went Swift took to social media to accuse Braun and her former label of blocking her from playing her old songs at next weekend’s American Music Awards. Her not having control over the songs that she wrote? Not cool. Her siccing her legion of fans on anyone who disagrees with her? Also not cool. This whole situation is a not cool fest…

-The Actors on Actors interviews continue to roll out. Today’s participants: Charlize Theron and Adam Driver, and Tom Hanks and Renée Zellweger.

-Survivor’s Elizabeth and Missy have apologized for their actions on this week’s episode: “Sexual harassment and sexual assault are extremely serious, life altering topics that I do not take lightly. They have no business being used as tactics to further one’s own agenda, whether it be in real life or in the game of Survivor.”

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson are quickly turning into my fave celeb couple.

-Quibi (the short form video platform) isn’t expected to launch until next year, but it continues to reel in stars. Bill Murray has signed on to star in a Peter Farrelly comedy series, Will Arnett is going to host a comedy series, the Russo Brothers are creating a Marvel vs DC docu-series, and there’s a Varsity Blues revival.

Lauryn Hill just dropped her first new solo song in five years.

-This is a great look at how Kelly Clarkson pulls off all those covers on her talk show.

-Congrats to Lena Waithe, who revealed that she secretly married her fiancée, Alana Mayo, at a courthouse in San Francisco.

GOOP’s holiday gift guide is fully of goopy ridiculousness.

Mo’Nique is taking Netflix to court for pay discrimination.

-Actress-turned-influencer Eva Amurri, who is currently pregnant, announced her and her husband have split.

This piece is the best thing I’ve read about The Morning Show so far — especially if you’re a Jennifer Aniston scholar.

-I’m just catching up on the controversy about The Social and I don’t really get the uproar? Yeah, Jess‘ comments about hockey players being bullies is subjective (though she did clearly say it was based on her experience), but everything else is pretty undeniable, no? Hockey is played by predominantly white dudes, and it’s really expensive to put your kids in it so it’s mostly dominated by families with a lot of disposable income and time.

-Holy crap, Sesame Street just did a Succession spoof starring Brian Cox and it’s everything I’ve ever wanted.

Justin Bieber Hangs with “Uncle Will”

Will Smith poses with Justin Bieber. (Photo:

Justin Bieber posted a photo with Will Smith, who he called “Uncle Will.” Anyone else hoping Smith adopts him? You’d never see Jaden peeing in a bucket.

-Also in need of an intervention: Robert Pattinson, who’s reportedly been hanging out with Mischa Barton a lot. What. The. Hell.

-Sadness: Lisa Robin Kelly from That ’70s show has died. The actress voluntarily checked herself into rehab this past week, but went into cardiac arrest late last night — the eve of her 43rd birthday.

Kim Kardashian was photographed for the first time since giving birth. She looks normal, makeup-free and regular person-shaped, which makes me think this wasn’t a staged photo opp.

-Fox and NBC are reportedly in a bidding war for a new comedy by Tina Fey set at a newly coed college.

Will Arnett is dating the ex-wife of Billy Joel. Could you imagine dating someone who was once married to the awesomeness that is Amy Poehler? I think I’d spend  a lot of time trying to convince them to reconcile.

-Now all those people who were complaining about Gwyneth Paltrow‘s behaviour at a recent authors’ event are back-pedalling.

-Glee’s Ryan Murphy says they’ve changed their mind about Cory Monteith‘s character dying from a drug overdose. Thank god.

-I keep forgetting that Robin Wright is dating Ben Foster. And then I remember and mentally high-five her.

-In his new edition of Lie Witness News, Jimmy Kimmel asks people how they feel about Oprah‘s (fake) Oscar nomination for The Butler.

-A new teaser for Homeland has landed. I call this one “Claire Danes’ Crazy Eyes.”

-I’m not sure how I feel about the kid who plays Sally on Mad Men starring in Lifetime’s Flowers in the Attic adaptation. Hasn’t she seen enough for one year?

-What if Breaking Bad were shot like The Wire? This awesome montage gives us an idea.

-Following his Reddit AMA, Aaron Paul hosted the inaugural Bitchie Awards, handing out “bitches” for the best questions.

Bill Nighy says he turned down the opportunity to be the new Doctor Who, even though he’s pretty much the only person who could get me to watch it.

-Has Rachel McAdams found a new man?

-I hate hate hate the dress, but otherwise Calista Flockhart is looking great these days!

-Speaking of ugly dresses, Jennifer Aniston strayed from her usual black and wore floral. Points for trying, though.

Aniston was back in black in Berlin. What’s happening with the hair swoop thing that she’s been doing?

-Yet another R. Kelly x Phoenix track has been dropped.

Cate Blanchett looks insanely good in her new Armani ad.

-Sexy sexypot Miguel was arrested for DUI.

-Someday soon before I have to pick my TIFF movies (next week!), I’m going to go through all of the festival trailers. First up is the one for Therese, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange.
