It’s Friday, it’s a million degrees in Los Angeles, and half the internet is down (for some people). Let’s see what we can come up with today.
Anne Hathaway is talking about how sad she was when she won her Oscar because she was supposed to feel only “uncomplicated happiness,” but she didn’t, so that made her even sadder. Celebrities: they’re just as anxious and sometimes whiny as us. (Lainey)
Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Turner are preggers again, which means we get another round of conspiracy theories from fans who CANNOT HANDLE the idea that he knocked up a human woman who isn’t them. (DListed)
Don’t mess with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. They’re so untouchable, tabloids are made to apologize when they try to stir up drama. (Celebitchy)
I’m getting Fancy Dalek Junior Prom vibes from Nina Dobrev’s dress. (Go Fug Yourself)
I dream about being as casual as this man in a flooded Starbucks.
This is awesome: a feminist history of the word “nasty.” (And that history includes a nod to our own Courtney in the form of a tweet I can’t see.) (The Atlantic)
Did you see the ultra-sexified Riri Williams (aka new teenage female Iron Man) variant cover? It’s been pulled. (HitFix)
Oooh, Jesse Plemons is joining Kirsten Dunst’s The Bell Jar movie. (Variety)
Everyone is dressing up as Harley Quinn for Halloween. No, really. Everyone. (AV Club)
The seventh season premiere of The Walking Dead is this weekend, and AMC has a lot of explaining to do. (Uproxx)
Also from Uproxx (and also full of tweets that only some of you will be able to see), it turns out your pets are probably dreaming about your face when they dream. Naturally, the internet is losing their minds over that news. (UR)
Cannonballer kfishgirl warns you not to read Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight at work, or really anywhere you don’t want to be seen crying. "I loved to see this story unravel, and I trusted it as it pulled me in. It was totally worth it." What book made you go through a box of tissues? (Cannonball Read 8)
Have a great weekend, everybody! I won’t let anything hurt you.
And you know what? It’s a weird day on the internet. Here’s another cute video to get you through the slog. This poor dog loves Star Wars more than you.
