George and Amal Clooney’s Twins Have Arrived


-George and Amal Clooney‘s welcomed a boy and a girl: Ella and Alexander. It crushed my fantasy that they’d arrive on the same day as Beyonce’s twins, but at least the official statement is cute: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

-Gwyneth Paltrow finally admits the truth about Goop: “I don’t know what the f*ck we talk about.”

-Rihanna has the best response for body shamers.

-The cast of This is Us were on Billy on the Street. I like the guy who didn’t recognize them but still insisted on hitting on Mandy Moore.

-Oh god. The Vulture movie critic who wrote that gross Wonder Woman review posted a response to the controversy, and it’s even worse. He quotes a female colleague who says women only hated his review because it was mixed and we wanted a rave. Um, no. I don’t care if his review was negative, I just wanted one that wasn’t sexist and referred to the lead character as a “babe” who cause “slobbering” with her “mouthiness.” But instead of trying to learn from it and maybe understand how his words came across in the context of this film, he double-downed with a mansplaining, patronizing followup.

-In happier news, does Wonder Woman have a real shot at a major category Oscar nominations?

-Prospects for this weekend’s Mummy reboot are growing dimmer in the face of Wonder Woman’s success. I don’t hate that.

-Keshia Knight Pulliam (who played Rudy on The Cosby Show) accompanied Bill Cosby on his first day of trial yesterday.

-The Weeknd and Selena Gomez had a date night in NYC so I guess that’s still a thing.

-Meanwhile, Selena reportedly approves of Taylor Swift‘s boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

-This is a good article on how it’s virtually impossible to figure out which shows will get cancelled these days.

-Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor share Moulin Rouge memories in this Actors on Actors clip. She also addresses Big Little Lies Season 2: “It was pretty finite. There’s no story. There’s absolutely no prospects right now.”

-Garbage singer Shirley Manson remains awesome: “I thought I was ancient at 40, but now I’m 50 and I realize I was really just a young woman.”

-US networks really, really need to stop trying to remake Misfits. Just watch the British original on Netflix.

-I will always read articles in which crisis PR experts assess the fallout of celebrity scandal. Today it’s on Bill Maher.

-Meanwhile, here’s a good look at why comedians are being forced to update their acts.

-See Paul Bettany as the Unabomber in the trailer for Manhunt.
