OK. Fine, whatever else you want to say about John Mayer, his new music video is terrific. (Lainey)
Are you FUCKING kidding me with this latest attempt by the NRA to steer the conversation surrounding school shootings away from gun control. Fucking monsters.

Meanwhile, in the present, Angelina Jolie is furious with Pitt because he won’t let her take the kids to London. (Celebitchy)
In other couple news, Will Smith is taking a page out of the Ryan Reynolds’ playbook and poking fun at those divorce rumors. (Dlisted)

I read an interview with David Cross over on The AV Club this week, in which he said, about his new stand-up special: “I make a #MeToo reference because my wife is a founder and prominent figure in the Times Up movement.

Lord Castleton isn’t the only one sitting out another season of the NFL. (Very Smart Brothas)

Sarah Paulson, looking luminious, appears on several covers of this month’s Modern Luxury. (Tom & Lorenzo)
I also just want to say, I fell Lynskey hard for Paulson after her most recent appearing on Ellen. After Ellen spent two segments calming Paulson’s fears about getting scared on her show again, Ellen pulled this on her. I was a giggling mess.
This story sounds … not great … but we are holding out hope because we like the people involved. (Variety)
Busy Philipps is ill so her BFF Michelle Williams sent her a cardboard cut out of herself to keep her company.
Bold statement, Grubb, but you better believe he backs it up: “The Rundown is still, today, 15 years and many movies later, The Rock’s best movie.” (Uproxx)
God bless Rian.

Oh yeah, so that Michael Bay/Ryan Reynolds film? It will be Netflix’s most expensive ever. And the thing is? It’s written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, so I’m actually begrudgingly interested. (/Film)
