Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk Split

-It looks like the rumours (or more likely, the carefully placed heads up articles) were true: Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have split after four years of dating and one child. Oh gawd, the Cooper/Gaga shippers are gonna have a field day…

-I very much like Mindy Kaling‘s Glamour cover interview. She talks about her public persona (“I think there’s been a tendency for people to conflate my characters with my personality. The fact of the matter is, I wrote 24 episodes of The Office. That’s more than any other person on The Office, but no one can really picture me sitting and doing the hard work of writing the episodes. It’s like it doesn’t compute to people because I can wear all pink and re-create Beyoncé videos”) and how she’s chill about approaching 40 (“Because I never had a career based on my physical beauty, I’m approaching aging without much dread. I was never the person who was, like, Mindy ‘The Body’ Kaling”).

Jada Pinkett Smith addressed rumours of of cheating in her relationship with Will Smith: “No, but there’ve been other betrayals of the heart that have been far bigger than I could even think in regards to an infidelity situation.”

-This is the very best part of that new Courtney Love interview: “Right now, I’ve become really ensorcelled by this Venusian fertility cult in the Valley. They’re beautiful women, all related to each other. [Ed note: Love is referring to the Kardashians.] ”

Jon Favreau‘s The Chef Show on Netflix looks delightful. The clip in which Favreau reminds Gwyneth Paltrow that she was in Spider-Man is especially great. “You were in Spider-Man: Homecoming.” “No, I was in Avengers.” “You were in Spider-Man also…With the press conference at the end?” “That was Spider-Man? Oh my god!”

-In the latest Actors on Actors interview, Penn Badgley talks to Gina Rodriguez about why people find his murderous stalker on You so charming: “The cultural norms that we’re still all indoctrinated by that incline us to forgive a certain kind of person. Namely someone who looks like myself, less so someone who looks like you.”

-In Chris Pine‘s conversation with Robin Wright, he weighs in on the Make America Great Again movement: “What period of history are we talking about? Jim Crow? Slavery? Plantation masters?”

Billy Porter talking about straight actors being given gay roles is amazing. It’s especially amazing because he’s doing it in front of Richard Madden and Hugh Grant.

-Meanwhile, Hugh Grant says every career decision he made during his rom-com heyday “was probably wrong“: “I should’ve made interesting decisions and done different stuff. Instead, I repeated myself almost identically about 17 times in a row.”

-Entertainment Weekly just became a monthly magazine and cut some of my fave writers. This is the end of a goddamn era.

-A random asshole asked Zendaya on a date during a Q&A for Euphoria.

Olivia Colman, Kaitlyn Dever and Alice Englert star in the All Have Their Sins trailer which is produced by [double-checks notes] Gerard Butler.

Zendaya Answers Vogue’s 73 Questions

Zendaya covers the June 2019 issue of Vogue, which also means she gets the 73 questions treatment. I like that she restricted the whole thing to her backyard instead of the usual house tour, but is so charming that it doesn’t seem like she’s shutting you out in any way.

Zendaya is also on the cover of Paper, where she says she has no desire to give up her music career for acting.

-I literally couldn’t contemplate winning a lunch with George and Amal Clooney. I think I’d have to study international affairs for six months to feel remotely qualified to open my mouth around them, and the whole thing would stress me out. But the video of George talking about it is super cute.

-This is awful: Miley Cyrus was trying to leave her hotel with Liam Hemsworth after a festival appearance in Barcelona and as she was fighting her way through the crowds to their car a dude grabbed her and tried to kiss her.

Tiffany Haddish says she’s retiring her white Alexander McQueen gown after wearing it to five events. I’m gonna miss it.

Kevin Spacey made a surprise appearance at his groping case hearing today.

-I liked Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, but the very best parts involved Keanu Reeves. This intro scene is already so iconic that there’s already a Twitter account devoted to putting different songs behind it.

-Meanwhile, Keanu is reportedly in talks to join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s The Eternals.

-It’s cute that Marc Anthony seems to get along so well with JLo and ARod.

-Don’t look to Joshua Jackson to start beating the Dawson’s Creek reunion drum. He said: “I had a great time. Mostly. I had a good time. 19 to 24, everything’s difficult, you’re all mixed up, you don’t know your place in the world yet. I would not go back there, no.”

-Congrats to Jay Z, who just became hip hop’s first billionaire.

-One of my fave TV writers @tvoti just came out as trans and wrote about it in relation to The Handsmaid’s Tale and it’s extremely powerful stuff.

-I gave up on it because of too much TV + little interest in watching any TV lately, but I dig this justification for why Whiskey Cavalier deserved a second season.

-I did force myself to start Good Omens this weekend because I adored the book — and it turns out the show is equally fantastic. The clincher for me was episode 3’s cold open, which only came together because Neil Gaiman realized he needed to give David Tennant and Michael Sheen more to do. It shows the two mains meeting at various major events in history, including Noah’s Ark, Jesus’ crucifixion, the first showing of Hamlet in the Globe, the French Revolution, WWII and more. Gaiman said: “When I got to Episode 3, I went, ‘Oh, Crowley and Aziraphale aren’t in this 50-page chunk,’ so I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do a mini-movie of Crowley and Aziraphale through time, and it will give Michael and David something to do.'”

-Also as I was watching it I saw someone tweet “Oh, this is a love story!” and it totally changed how I saw the show. Michael Sheen agrees.

-There is a very real possibility that for the first time ever, there will not be a single comedy from ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX among the best comedy series Emmy nominees.

-On the slim chance that you’re not totally done hearing about Game of Thrones, this is a very good video explaining how foreshadowing shouldn’t be misconstrued as character development when it came to Daenerys.

-Apple TV still hasn’t revealed when its streaming service is coming or how much it will cost, but they did drop their first trailer today. It’s for Ron Moore‘s alt-history space race series For All Mankind.

-I went to a movie this weekend and the Lion King trailer played before it, and I was like “how could they not use Beyonce‘s voice in this?!?” But today’s new trailer rectifies that, with her Nala character finally making an appearance.

Christian Bale and Matt Damon burn rubber in the First Ford v. Ferrari trailer.

Leaked Audio Reveals Tensions on Lethal Weapon Set

-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.
