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.

 

 

Reese Witherspoon Joins Forces with Zendaya

-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.
