Angelina Jolie Invites Us Into Her Home

 

Angelina-Jolie-British-Vogue

Angelina Jolie covers the March issue Of British Vogue, and the interview is a good mix of hints about her split from Brad Pitt (“The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body”), passion about her activism (“I see a lot of older people making excuses for certain behaviours, and it tends to be the younger person who is quicker to say, ‘But this is simply wrong, and we stand against it'”) and cute anecdotes about her kids (“I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’ And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star”). The family photos are just as fascinating as the quotes — I love the one where she’s giving Maddox a haircut.

-Uh oh. A former costar of Adam Driver went on a Portuguese podcast and accused him of “behaving very badly” on the set of 2018’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. According to translations, she said “he demanded, I think by contract, that no one could look at him. If they looked, the extras were immediately fired.” She also said he got too rough with her during filming: “He behaved very badly with me. Physically. He attacked me… And it had nothing to do with the scene.”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson will announce the major Golden Globes categories live on TV tomorrow morning. Weirdly, Best Comedy Movie won’t make the cut.

-Starz announced today that it will remove Marilyn Manson from his upcoming appearance in its drama series American Gods.

Dolly Parton turned down an offer to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom twice during the Donald Trump administration — possibly because she had scheduling conflicts but I prefer to believe she’s just that good.

-Although she helped fund the vaccine research, she still hasn’t gotten the shot. “I’m not going to get mine until some more people get theirs. I don’t want it to look like I’m jumping the line just because I donated money.”

-I’ve been really enjoying the Too Long; Didn’t Watch podcast, in which a celeb watches the first and last episode of a series they’d never seen before and tries to figure out what they missed. Jon Hamm watched Gossip Girl, Alison Brie watched Game of Thrones, Kumail Nanjiani watched Veronica Mars, and this week Sophia Bush watches Parks and Rec.

Mariah Carey‘s family continues to be garbage. Her sister is suing her for $1.25 million, alleging infliction of emotional distress.​

-Stars like Charli XCX and Rihanna are mourning the death of producer Sophie.

-Also, Rihanna is shining light on India’s farmers protests.

-This article on stressed-out COVID compliance officers and assistants who work on TV shows is terrifying. “I have no formal training. I have no medical training. I don’t know anything more or less about coronavirus than the next person.”

-I really liked this piece on Hannah Waddingham’s arc on Ted Lasso. It’s so rare to see such a fully realized character in a comedy, especially a woman over 40.

Ariana Grande is releasing a deluxe album — and it’s got 4 different versions of “Positions.”

-Here’s the trailer for The Nevers, HBO’s Victorian sci-fi drama that Joss Whedon created — and then left. I must say I’m intrigued by this first look.

Will Smith is featured in the trailer for Amend: The Fight for America, which also features Mahershala Ali, Diane Lane, Samuel L. Jackson, Pedro Pascal, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sterling K Brown, Joshua Jackson, Yara Shahidi, Laverne Cox and more. It drops on Netflix next weekend.

Amy Poehler directs and co-stars in Moxie, playing a woman who inspires her teen daughter to start a rabble-rousing zine. It’s coming to Netflix next month.

-In his new interview with Vanity Fair, Jacob Elordi praises his Euphoria co-star (and ex-girlfriend) Zendaya. “She’s a power unto herself and so talented. Such a sweetheart.”

Taylor Swift was interviewed by Beatles icon Paul McCartney, and opened up about her relationship with Joe Alwyn, saying he understands her A-list lifestyle. “I think that in knowing him and being in the relationship I am in now, I have definitely made decisions that have made my life feel more like a real life and less like just a storyline to be commented on in tabloids. Whether that’s deciding where to live, who to hang out with, when to not take a picture—the idea of privacy feels so strange to try to explain, but it’s really just trying to find bits of normalcy.”

Melissa McCarthy (though more likely her networks’ publicist) accidentally promoted a charity that has ties to homophobic and anti-abortion policies and apologized. “There’s no other way to say it,” she said in an Instagram video. “We blew it. We made a mistake and we backed a charity that upon proper vetting stands for everything that we do not.”

-During a recent interview, Kate Mara says Heath Ledger looked out for her on the set of Brokeback Mountain. “I was 19, he was only a few years older than me, yeah, it was pretty crazy, but he was the sweetest thing…he really took me under his wing because I hadn’t worked that much.”

Will Smith gets teary-eyed in the new Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air reunion trailer.

-I can’t believe Grey’s Anatomy pulled off that surprise cameo last night (don’t click if you don’t want to be spoiled). Ellen Pompeo says she came up with the idea while she was hiking with said person in Malibu.

Amber Heard has thrown water on the rumors that she won’t reprise her role of Mera in Aquaman 2. She said she’s “so excited” to film it sometime in 2021, and shot down “paid” online efforts to have her booted from the sequel.

-The cast of The Matrix 4 broke quarantine protocols in Berlin and threw a party. I expect better from Keanu.

Ellen Degeneres has released the Fall edition of her “Be Kind” subscription box. So people are still believing the kind thing, huh?

-TMZ emailed the Secret Service about Eminem’s Trump lyrics, which kicked off an investigation into the rapper.

Billie Eilish’s new video makes me miss the mall.

-In the trailer for Lifetime’s The Christmas Setup, Fran Drescher stars as a mom who tries to matchmake her gay son. This is the kind of holiday movie I can get behind. It stars Arrow’s Ben Lewis and his real-life husband Blake Lee.

-Drew Barrymore stars in The Stand In trailer.

 

 

Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer Stuns on Allure

-My god, the Allure cover and photo spread with Hunter Schafer might be my favourite in a long, long time. In the interview, she talks about not always wanting to talk in the press about her transition, and how Euphoria is a “wildly expensive TV show”, with season one reportedly costing about as much to produce as season one of Westworld.

Angelina Jolie’s legal team is asking for the private judge assigned to their divorce case to be disqualified for failing to disclose his business relationship with one of Brad Pitt’s attorneys. Pitt’s team (via Page Six) is spinning it as “a delay tactic“.

Alyssa Milano said she was hospitalized for complications due to  COVID-19 in April and that she still has long haul symptoms of the disease months later.

Jessica Mulroney returned to Instagram — obstinately to wish her sons a happy birthday, but that caption is a lot.

-A reboot of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is in the works with Will Smith exec-producing — although the new version will be a drama, not a comedy.

-Because there are no new ideas, Zac Efron will star in the Disney remake of Three Men and a Baby.

-This is an interesting look at how Pharrell Williams is breaking the chains of music’s troubled past by leading Black artists’ fight for equality, equity stakes and the elimination of triggering ‘master and slave’ terminology from music biz contracts.

-In a new interview, Ruby Rose talks about leaving Batwoman after one season, saying “Being the lead of a superhero show is tough. Being the lead in anything is tough.”

-This video of Shia LeBeouf getting tested for Covid getting tested for covid is weirdly endearing. I like how he says his nurse Yesenia’s name repeatedly.
