If you’ve ever wondered how female celebrities navigate going to the bathroom in their red carpet gowns, it’s not easy. Like, distressingly not easy. (Yahoo)

I was nervous when this interview with Helen Mirren on the #OscarsSoWhite situation started off with her saying we shouldn’t blame the Academy.

But she makes a lot of really fantastic points and by the end, as expected, totally Mirrens it. (Celebitchy)

This video from the control room of Grease Live is absolutely mesmerizing and way too stressful.

A lot of people have asked what it means to be the Associate Director on a show like Grease Live. Here's a peek behind the curtain. Every shot in the show was designed and scripted by our director Alex Rudzinski. My job was to execute that plan. You hear me calling shot numbers and camera moves carefully coordinated with the music. My head stays in the script and Alex, to my right, keeps an eye on cameras to adjust framing and pacing. #GreaseLive

A British brand is now putting it into models’ contracts that they have to eat during shoots, in front of staff. They admit that this is patronizing and “nannying,” but also necessary in an industry that encourages self-destructive habits. It’s hard to know where to draw the ethics line here. (Mashable)

This is a great interview with Marcia Clark on FX’s The People v. OJ Simpson. She talks inaccuracies, hwo great Sarah Paulson is, and what she was thinking when she got that perm. (Vulture)
