I watched that All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie on Netflix the other day, and I totally get why so many folks are crushing on Noah Centineo, and it’s impossible not to see the Ruffalo comparisons. Unfortunately, his Netflix follow-up Seira Burgess is a Loser with Stranger Things’ Sharon Purser (BARB) is not so good. That’s too bad.(Lainey)
Vincent Cassell is stepping out on his 21-year-old wife Tina Kunakey? Didn’t they just get married like two weeks ago? Oh wait! Sorry! Nevermind. The headline is “stepping out with.” My bad. Lovely couple. (Celebitchy)
Mark Wahlberg’s daily routine may be the saddest thing ever. Why would he post this? At least it makes me feel better about my schedule, which is “Wakes up. Sits in front of computer. Family Time. Sits back in front of computer. Goes to sleep.” (Dlisted)
Given what we know about Les Moonves now? Yeah, this makes sense.
The Nancy Drew reboot I cut for CBS a few years ago was such a no-brainer, so beloved by all the creative execs, and then squashed like a bug so they could green light a slate of white male military shows.— Susan Vaill (@yaysusan) September 12, 2018
This via Petr is the most British home invasion ever: “Four masked men brandishing crowbars stormed into my house and threatened to kill me, before apologizing, shaking my hand and leaving.” (Reddit)
As Roxana notes, “Look, I enjoy Jon Hamm. But this is the most nothing tweet of all time. Whoa, the script and the story MATTER? Wild!” Also, stay away from superhero movies, Hamm. Can’t just one of you guys avoid that genre? (THR)
Remember when Sam Taylor-Johnson directed Fifty Shades of Grey and it made eleventy gabillion dollars? I bet she got a ton of directing offers afterward. What’s that? How many? Zero? (Indiewire)
Kit Harington asks what so many have probably been asking: Why isn’t there a gay superhero in the Marvel universe yet? (Variety)
As our own Kate Hudson asks, “Who in their right mind would EVER think ‘Yeah, this is alright to put on a shirt. Let’s go for it Brad!” (People)
You’d think this would be obvious, but you’d think wrong:
When I told him I was happy with my body, he looked both surprised and slightly sorry for me. Never walk up to someone and tell them how much better they could look. You’re not being nice, you’re shaming them for the way they currently look. You’re also being extremely weird. pic.twitter.com/FeYBluU0vw— Jameela Jamil (@jameelajamil) September 12, 2018
A number of notoriously spooky and creepy places are already readying themselves for Halloween. Here’s how. (Ranker)
Chinese highest-paid actress Fan Bingbing (X-Men, an upcoming thriller with Jessica Chastain), has not been seen or heard from publicly since July following a celebrity pay scandal in China. (Vulture)
OF COURSE, Peter Thiel is behind a study about whether drinking the blood of young people can help a person live longer (OK, but what is the answer, and do my children count?) (NYPost)
"The research is part of a wave of studies and trials backed by PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel at a San Francisco start-up called Ambrosia." https://t.co/BjtW1goaDc— aya (@ayacharlatan) September 11, 2018
WTF? WTF? Seriously, WTF? California, come get your hillbilly Congressional rep.
Gotta see this to believe it. @DanaRohrabacher is asked if he wants to send a Chinese New Year message to the VOA China audience and he responds with racist stereotypes about eating dogs. https://t.co/0qhhF521UZ #CA48 pic.twitter.com/xHh35UzLeE— Shripal Shah (@shripal734) September 12, 2018
Viola Davis lists among those movies she regrets making The Help, for all the reasons explained herein. (Jezebel)
Ava Duvernay: Same.
Much respect to all involved. With that said, I understand Viola on this. Hope others do too. THE HELP was the last film I worked on as a publicist. I quit PR. That film pushed me to make my own - for the reasons Viola states. I’m grateful for that push. https://t.co/BeL5OIXoK4— Ava DuVernay (@ava) September 12, 2018
We can always rely on Ellen to make us feel better about the world, even if it is in response to the terrible things of the world. (NBC)
I think my growing love of Kate Beckinsale may fall under the category of confirmation bias — since we began using her as a replacement for Donald Trump header photos, I’ve fallen hard.
WhimBimThankYouMim was sadly unimpressed with Stephanie Danler’s Sweetbitter. "Navel-gazing disguised as deep, ponderous questions and over-worked descriptions of food meant to read as deep life lessons that made me giggle. Fancy! Profound! Authentic!" Are there better ‘Midwest girl goes to New York City’ books that you can recommend? (Cannonball Read 10)
