-This has been the *craziest* week of TV news, so it’s fitting that it closes with Variety’s deep-dive into the behind-the-scenes clashes on the set of Lethal Weapon, which includes audio clips of Clayne Crawford calling costar Damon Wayans a p***y and yelling at the crew because of background noise. Variety interviewed 31(!) people who worked on the series who say the set was so toxic that by the end of the season, security guards were present at all times to ensure that disagreements would not deteriorate into physical violence. Wayans also doesn’t come off smelling like a rose; he refuses to do table reads, has to be fed every 2.5 hours, and demands scripts that featured his lines only.

-Speaking of crazy TV news, according to TMZ ABC is in talks to reboot Roseanne and have it be centered around Sara Gilbert’s character.

Elle Fanning is super smile-y on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia, which I think is very cute. I like that they didn’t use a pouty model pose.

Pusha T says of his Drake beef: “I’m not censoring myself, there’s more content if it’s needed.” And he’s implying that Drake has been searching for dirt on him in retaliation.

Kayne West actually dropped his album on schedule. You can listen to it here.

-I don’t actually know if Zendaya and Tom Holland are dating IRL, but this is very cute.

-I love so much about this IG post: it’s a mild but effective denial of rumours that Emma Stone is dating Justin Theroux, and I had no idea that’s she’s BFFs with YTV’s Sugar!

-It’s good to see that Matt Damon and Chris Hemsworth’s bromance is still going strong.

-In an interview with the NYT before her arrest Smallville star Allison Mack revealed disturbing details about her experiences in the Nxivm cult, including that women were expected to have sex with their “master” and do menial chores, and that the branding was her idea.

Kevin Hart admits he overreacted to an incident that happened on his plane after they’d landed: “We turned into the most dramatic people. Everybody else was so calm. They were grabbing their bags. I got the mask. ‘Can you breathe? Can you breathe?'”

-Killing Eve might be the best reviewed show of the year, and it’s been killing me that we can’t watch it legally here in Canada. But that’s about to change — it debuts on Bravo on July 22.

Ian McKellen gave the best answer when told that Dumbledore’s queer sexuality wouldn’t be addressed in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  “That’s a pity. Well, nobody looks to Hollywood for social commentary, do they? They only recently discovered that there were black people in the world. Hollywood has mistreated women in every possible way throughout its history. Gay men don’t exist. Gods and Monsters [1998], I think, was the beginning of Hollywood admitting that there were gay people knocking around, even though half of Hollywood is gay.”

Harvey Weinstein is facing a new rape allegation in a class action lawsuit that was filed today.

Emma Thompson plays a judge deciding if she should force a teenage boy to have the blood transfusion that will save his life in The Children Act.

 

 

Reese Witherspoon Joins Forces with Zendaya

Reese-Witherspoon-marie-claire

-In her new cover story for Marie Claire, Reese Witherspoon walks the walk by talking about how she’s focusing on producing female-driven projects, including a film she’s co-producing with Zendaya.

Kim Cattrall  WENT OFF on Sarah Jessica Parker on Instagram this weekend after Parker offered condolences for the death of Cattrall’s brother. Responded Cattrall: “Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now…So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.” Here’s some history of the pair’s increasingly public spats over the past few months.  Though I’m clearly on #TeamKim (I assume most people are?) I also kind of feel like SJP was put in a terrible position when Extra asked her about the death. If she refused to answer, it would have been worse. She definitely doesn’t come out of the entire SATC saga looking great, but in this particular instance she was damned if she did, damned if she didn’t.

Idris Elba got engaged this weekend and there’s video of him popping the question, just in case you really want to hate your life.

-The stunt coordinator on Kill Bill broke his silence to say he and his entire department were kept off the set on the day Uma Thurman filmed that scene. “At no point was I notified or consulted about Ms. Thurman driving a car on camera that day. Had I been involved, I would have insisted not only on putting a professional driver behind the wheel but also insuring that the car itself was road-worthy and safe.”

-A friend and I were talking last week about how in this #TimesUp moment we were surprised that no one has said “Hey, remember those old allegations/charges against Michael Fassbender? Or Christian Bale? Or Josh Brolin? Or Christian Slater?” Well, looks like Fassbender’s up first.

-Despite those sexual misconduct allegations, The Deuce is bringing James Franco back for season two.

Taylor Swift has been burned by leaks before. So now when she wants you to hear an unreleased song, she flies an iPad to you, then flies it back, according to Ed Sheeran.

-45-year-old comedian Dane Cook is dating a teenager. That’s swell.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen gave out crystals at New York Fashion Week. Seems about right…

-Clear your calendar: the royal wedding schedule has arrived.

-This is embarrassing: A judge ruled that Zooey Deschanel — not her agency or manager — was primarily to blame for her not getting a film role.

-I have zero interest in ever seeing Fifty Shades Freed so I have no horse in this race, but I read two *hilarious* reviews about it that were polar opposites. Vulture praised it for breaking every convention of film-making (“No five-minute section in Fifty Shades Freed has any relation to the five minutes before it; the film just starts over. It’s Memento, but with butt plugs”), while Pajiba called it ad “ignorant, poisonous anti-feminist hate anthem” (“It’s like offering waffles for breakfast and then making the waffles out of misogyny and feces. Enjoy your god damn shitwaffle, America. You deserve it”).

Zac Efron is shooting a Harmony Korine movie, and his beard is mesmerizing

-Box office pundits keep raising the expectations for Black Panther, and now it’s expected to open at a massive $165M. We bought our tickets last week and couldn’t get 5 seats together, which is both awesome and kind of a bummer.

Gina Rodriguez directed her first episode of Jane the Virgin and she talked about how it was important to create a safe space for her male costar during their sex scene. Her episode also featured a grandmother buying her first dildo, and Petra having a sex dream about her female lawyer, so she was really hitting it out of the park.

Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd perfectly recreated the ‘King Of Wishful Thinking’ music video and it’s wonderful.

David Duchovny thinks it’s premature for fans to be mourning Gillian Anderson’s departure from The X Files: “It’s a little cart before the horse, for me. It’s like, OK, there are issues to deal with or whatever, but let’s talk about the show. Let’s not talk about hypotheticals. To me, it’s unfortunate that’s kind of like ‘the headline’ because, to me, the headline is: We just made 10 really kick-ass episodes of television, and please enjoy and don’t mourn the death of this show quite yet.” (Read: I’m willing to do this show without her.)

-A Wrinkle in Time’s latest TV trailer promises a mind-bending adventure.

Carey Mulligan tries to solve a murder in BBC’s new four-part political thriller Collateral. Limited TV series seems like a smart career move for her.

Zendaya Covers InStyle

zendaya-instyle-jan-cover

Zendaya looks amazing on the cover of Instyle. Is there nothing she can’t pull off? (Oh wait, I just saw the horse dress. Never mind.)

Chance The Rapper is very good at Twitter.

Kate Hudson declared her love for music producer Danny Fujikawa in an Instagram post.

Ben Affleck reportedly rented an Upper West Side apartment for Lindsay Shookus that costs $28,000 a month. But isn’t she an SNL producer? Couldn’t she rent her own apt?

-This article about how Meghan Markle is everything Ivanka Trump wishes she could be is just perfect. *chef’s fingers kiss*

Selena Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram — and she just switched her account to private.

-God bless Vulture for diving deep into an investigation on the muscular Korean guy spotted with Lindsay Lohan.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are just messing with us at this point.

Katherine McPhee crashed a wedding and then reportedly called the bride a “loser” for kicking her out. Charming.

-Filming was suspended on Blake Lively‘s new movie after she hurt her hand.

-Every year, IndieWire’s David Ehrlich does a 13-minute montage of the year’s 25 best movies. I missed so many!

-God bless John Oliver for grilling Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment allegations and refusing to back down. When Hoffman starting to say “Well, there’s a point in her not bringing it up for 40 years” I actually yelled “NOPE!!” out loud. (Oliver’s reaction of “Oh, Dustin” and putting his head in his hands was probably better.)

-Also, according to Terry Crews, Hoffman’s agent is Adam Venit, who Crews accused of groping him.

-Meanwhile, this is a great piece on the utter failure of male apologies this year.

Gabriel Byrne says that Kevin Spacey‘s behavior shut down the Usual Suspects filming for 2 days. “It was only years later that we began to understand that [filming] was closed down for a particular reason and that was because of inappropriate sexual behavior by Spacey.”

More allegations have come out against Prison Break/iZombie actor Robert Knepper. They’re awful. He denied all allegations, adding “Until I can sit down and have a dialogue with my accusers, managed not by the press but by an impartial mediator, I have nothing further to say on this matter.” How about a judge? Would a judge work?

-Netflix FINALLY cuts ties with Danny Masterson amid rape allegations. He’ll be written out of The Ranch. He released a statement about it, proclaiming his innocence.

-Despite not being super impressed with his behaviour at TIFF, I was starting to root for Armie Hammer. And then he had to go and Milkshake Duck himself by saying the only reason he wouldn’t work with Roman Polanski is because “there’s going to be drama” and that judging what he’s done is “a gray area.”

-It feels like something big is about to break with Bryan Singer, no? His production company is vacating the Fox lot after his firing. Meanwhile, he says he was fired from the Freddie Mercury biopic because he was taking care of an ill parent.

-I recommend reading this Daily Beast interview with the guy who runs the blind-item site Crazy Days and Nights. He had blinds about Weinstein, Spacey, and Lauer for years.

-I didn’t ship them on the show, but Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer are a pretty darn cute couple IRL.

-This sweet Mark Hamill story might be my fave celeb story I’ve read in a while.

-I’m really glad I’m not the only one who still isn’t over the fact that the CW crossover turned all our heroes into Nazis. NAZIS!

-Here’s the international trailer for The Last Jedi.
