Is Lady Gaga Dating Jeremy Renner?

-If you had asked me what famous person Lady Gaga would date next, Jeremy Renner would have been way, way, way down on the bottom of my list of guesses. But here were are! Maybe. People says they’ve been spending lots of time together, while a source tells Us Weekly it might not be romantic yet.  What do you think a date with Renner even looks like? I’m guessing it’s filled with a lot of boring house-flipping talk.

-In a powerful new essay, Emilia Clarke reveals she suffered two life-threatening brain aneurysms during the first season of Game of Thrones. “In my worst moments, I wanted to pull the plug. I asked the medical staff to let me die.”

Noah Centineo is in talks to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. Considering how hot he was after To All The Boys, this career move seems…bad?

-Hipster super couple Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach just had a baby.

-Bummer. Dan and Eugene Levy announced today that they’ve decided to end Schitt’s Creek with season 6. It’s always good to see creatives being allowed to bow out on their own terms, but it also feels like our quirky lil’ Canadian show was just starting to pick up steam popularity-wise (especially in the US).

Richard E. Grant continues to be a delightful tea spiller. He says Julianne Moore was fired from Can You Ever Forgive Me? because she wanted to wear a fat suit and fake nose.

-The Cruel Intentions cast spills backstage secrets in this oral history to celebrate the film’s 20 year anniversary. Joshua Jackson remembers how Reese Witherspoon hooked him up with a car rental place that would rent to underage drivers, Ryan Phillippe talks about showing his butt, and Sarah Michelle Gellar praises Selma Blair‘s soft lips.

-On the Us press tour, Winston Duke was asked about Michael Jackson and somehow seamlessly pivoted the conversation back to the theme of the movie he’s promoting without appearing to sidestep the question. This deserves a slow clap.

-While promoting her new album, Jenny Lewis talked about the “f*cked up” allegations against frequent collaborator Ryan Adams. “I was so sad on so many levels when I heard. I hate that he’s on this album, but you can’t rewrite how things went.”

-This is a pretty fascinating profile on Roseanne Barr, who seems to regret nothing.

Jenny McCarthy is shit-talking her experience on The View in a new book.

-The repercussions of Disney buying Fox have already started. Elizabeth Gabler’s Fox 2000, which is responsible for mid-budget movies like The Devil Wears Prada, Hidden Figures and Love, Simon, is being shuttered.

Lizzy Caplan and Eight Grade star Elsie Fisher just joined season two of Castle Rock. Also, I just learned that Fisher has a Dungeons and Dragons podcast, which is all kinds of adorable.

-I never watched Deadwood but I was pretty convinced the movie was never going to happen after years (and years) of delays. But HBO just released the first trailer, so what do I know?

-This is tragic. Budding country singer Justin Carter died of an accidental shooting after a prop gun from a music video went off in his apartment.

-A new trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3 just dropped.

Louis C.K. Steps In It…Again

-An bootlegged hour of audio from Louis C.K.‘s Dec 16th standup routine was leaked an it’s bad. Like stupidly, shockingly tone-deaf, ‘this man has learned nothing’ bad. He makes fun of kids who want to identify as gender neutral before launching into a diatribe against the Parkland survivors. (“You’re not interesting because you went to a high school where kids got shot. Why does that mean I have to listen to you? You didn’t get shot, you pushed some fat kid in the way and now I’ve gotta listen to you talking?”) It’s not that certain topics should be off-limits to comedy, but if you’re going to go there, can’t you say…something? This isn’t funny or probing or interesting; this is just bitter. Here’s a good take on the whole disappointing situation.

-Meanwhile, a Parkland survivor has responded to him: “Since you like making fun of me and other Parkland survivors behind closed doors, I’m right here if you want to talk. Just try to keep it in your pants, ok?”

-That ridiculous, weird video that Kevin Spacey released as soon as news came out that he’s being charged with felony sexual assault  racked up 4.5 million views in the first 24 hours (it’s currently over 8 million).  Meanwhile, despite reports that the case against him includes video evidence, he is reportedly planning to plead not guilty. Today, a judge denied Spacey’s motion that he be excused from appearing in court, which the actor claimed would “amplify the negative publicity.”

Spacey was also photographed wearing a “retired since 2017” hat, so he seems to be taking this super seriously.

-I haven’t gotten around to watching Black Mirror’s choose-your-ending Bandersnatch special, but apparently there are eight different possible results  (though there’s one ending that people seem to be loving more than the others).

-The Golden Globe promos with Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg are delightfully nonsensical.

Ariana Grande posted, then quickly deleted a new Mac Miller tribute – and followed it up with a post that read, “Farewell 2018, you f—.” Word.

Sandra Bullock went on Ellen and talked about having a crush on Keanu Reeves during the filming of Speed and I’ve never related to her more.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth appear to be honeymooning with his whole family in tow.

Jennifer Lawrence says she once got so stoned with rappers at a party that she began yelling at a woman at the port-a-potty about pooping. That seems very on brand.

-Writing about TV ships is my favourite kind of writing.

-What better way to close out this year than with video of Celine Dion rocking out at a Lady Gaga show?

Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Elisabeth Moss star in the trailer for Jordan Peele‘s upcoming horror film Us.
