Jennifer Lopez Wears Her Iconic Green Dress at Versace’s Fashion Show

-Nearly 20 years after she wore it at the Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez just¬†closed out the Versace S/S 2020 show by walking the runway in her infamous¬†jungle print dress. She looks the same — maybe better. What kind of sorcery is this?!?

-Ya know, for someone who claims he isn’t campaigning for an Oscar, Brad Pitt¬†sure is everywhere. He appeared in a sketch on Jimmy Fallon last night, was grilled by a kid reporter for Ellen, and he gave an interview to CNN in which he said that when his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow told him Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her while she was working on Emma, he confronted him. “At that moment, I was just a boy from the Ozarks on the playground.. and that’s how we confronted with things.” (Paltrow has said that they ran into Weinstein at the Broadway opening of Hamlet and Pitt threatened to kill him if he ever made her feel uncomfortable again.)

-The reviews for the Downton Abbey movie are really positive. I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing kills at the box office this weekend.

-In a new interview, Lucy Boynton says boyfriend Rami Malek‘s fans can get too handsy for her liking. “It’s lovely to see people who are excited about his work ‚ÄĒ if they’ve seen Mr. Robot or Freddie ‚ÄĒ but it’s just that thing of people grabbing him. I mean, you’d never grab a complete stranger in the street. And I think there’s a sense of ownership. It’s OK to just come up to someone, with your camera already out, and disregard whoever they’re with. It happened when we were with my mother, and we were just shoved out of the way. It’s quite shocking.”

-Here’s the first footage of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown. She looks amazing!

-In her new memoir, Demi Moore says she regrets having two threesomes with Ashton Kutcher during their marriage, which she says he then used as an excuse to cheat on her. “Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done.”

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman took a break from their social media trolling to enjoy a cup of coffee together in NYC.

Mayim Bialik is re-teaming with her Big Bang Theory on-screen husband, Jim Parsons, for a Fox comedy called Carla.

-I enjoyed this oral history on Little Women.

-I was sure it was going to be cancelled, so I’m glad Netflix is giving GLOW a fourth and final season. That being said, I’m kinda bummed about this new TV landscape where we can’t expect shows to get renewed past seasons 3 or 4.¬† This thread sums it up well.

-The Between Two Ferns movie drops on Netflix today, and this clip of Keanu Reeves makes me wanna watch it. The Paul Rudd bit is good too — mostly because he spends the entirety of it trying not to break.

-The more Joker reviews I read from female critics, the less I want to watch it.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got a visit from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department after they shared a video on social media of them harassing wild antelope.

-I love how Google is incorporating pop culture references into their entertainment-related searches. Search Friends Ross and click on the couch, Friends Pheobe and click on the guitar, or Wizard of Oz and click on the shoes.

-This is super sweet: Will Smith surprised the two kids who went viral on social media for a clip of them giving a bullied kid new clothes.

-The Quebec film Antigone has been selected to represent Canada at the Oscars. I didn’t catch it but it got raves at TIFF.

-I have no desire to see Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood, but goodness has it led to some really well-written reviews. I especially like this one and this one.

-On the other end of the movie review spectrum,¬†THR is (rightly) getting mocked for running a weirdly horny review of the new Dora the Explore movie. Maybe “throbbing” shouldn’t be used when talking about a film aimed a kids?

-This oral history of Orange Is The New Black includes 23 people and is very, very good.

Lil Nas X, a gay black man, just made Billboard history and this is why it matters.

-I gotta stop reading articles from the Veronica Mars showrunner. He thinks Veronica would vote Republican?! What?!?

-I don’t watch CBS’s Big Brother, but this sounds like a mess.

Armie Hammer went viral for all the wrong reasons over the weekend. Gross.

-Amazon boss Jennifer Salke wants Phoebe Waller-Bridge to reconsider ending Fleabag. I loved loved loved the last season but please god no.

-Speaking of Amazon, they’re developing a new show with Blake Lively.¬†¬†“It’s set in New York, there’s a fashion component.” They know Gossip Girl is already being rebooted, right?

The anti-aging tech they’re doing on Will Smith for the Gemini Man trailers continue to freak me the eff out.

 

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Talks Fleabag

phoebe waller bridge gq

-It’s a banner day for us Phoebe¬†Waller-Bridge fans.¬†Tina Fey interviewed her for British GQ, where she talked about the critical reception to Fleabag (“The British press were like, [it’s] is the filthiest, most overly exposed, sexually exposing show ever.’ They made out like I was naked the whole way through. I was like, ‘There is not a moment of nudity in the series.’ I just say stuff about my asshole straight down the barrel. I think that makes people feel so naked, but the language was more naked than the actual performance.”)

Waller-Bridge¬†is also on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s comedy actress issue, alongside¬†Tiffany Haddish, Jane Fonda, Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, Alex Borstein and Regina Hall. She talks about why she loves writing Fleabag: “I write women who don’t give a shit because I am teaching myself how to be one. I just feel such a catharsis when I turn to the camera and just say that f**king line and it’s just such an amazing feeling. I’d like to be more like that.”

-Following the Natale Portman kerfuffle, Moby has called off the rest of his book tour as well as “all upcoming public appearances for the foreseeable future,” saying “I’m going to go away for a while.”

-As if we needed another reason to stan her, Meghan Markle has reportedly bowed out of meeting Trump.

Prince Harry took a commercial flight and his fellow passengers couldn’t help but sneak pics of him.

-This makes a lot of sense: CBS announced it will air season 1 of CBS All Access’ The Good Fight this summer, beginning June 16. While I think season 2 is better, this whole show is so, so good!

-I was scared to see Alex Trebek‘s name trending earlier today, but it’s good news! A few months after revealing he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he says he’s “near remission,” telling People: “It’s kind of mind-boggling … The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory … some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”

Laura Dern just graced us with this perfect IG post and the world doesn’t deserve her.

Ashton Kutcher testified today in the murder trial for the man accused of killing his friend,¬†Ashley Ellerin. The actor testified that he went to¬†Ellerin’s house the night she was murdered to pick her up for drinks, but there was no answer so he assumed she wasn’t home. He said when he looked in her window, he saw what he thought were red wine stains on her carpet.

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix might be engaged.

-This video of Will Smith talking to kids at the Aladdin premiere is all kinds of precious.

-While doing press for Avu DuVernay‘s new Netflix series When They See Us, Joshua Jackson talked about confronting his blind spots as a white man.¬†DuVernay praised his comments, tweeting: “When I first met with [him], I didn‚Äôt know what to expect. Certainly not THIS. Had never had a convo like that with a white actor. He surprised me in the most unexpected, beautiful way.”

Ultimately, everyone was well aware of Jason’s behavior and his multiple HR cases, including Lena [Waithe].”¬†Meanwhile, show creator Waithe maintains that she was told of the actor’s alleged actions only after the first season wrapped. (Even if that’s the case, the show didn’t drop Mitchell until its current third season.)

-I really needed this video of Lil Nas X surprising elementary kids today.

-I really liked these details about the vocal-technique work Michelle Williams did to prepare for her performance in Fosse/Verdon. I definitely need to catch up on this show.

Ansel Elgort posted 17 shirtless pics in a row on Insta, and everyone is very confused.

-Speaking of Ansel, the trailer for¬†The Goldfinch, starring him, Nicole Kidman and Sarah Paulson, dropped today. That was one of those books I read because everyone kept gushing over it, but I found it a bit of a slog. But if you like long and very detailed passages about the art of woodworking, it’ll be your jam.
