chris-pratt-entertainment-weekly

-Chris Pratt is on the cover of EW to promote Jurassica World: Fallen Kingdom and in the interview, he talks for the first time about his split from Anna Faris. “Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”

-Meanwhile, the final trailer for  Fallen Kingdom has arrived. It looks very silly.

-The Weeknd is “casually datingChantel Jeffries — who happens to be Justin Bieber‘s ex. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

-Eva Longoria got a star on the Walk of Fame and so many famous ladies showed up, including Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Munn, Holly Peete, as well as her Desperate Housewives costars Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman.

-Claire Danes revealed that she’s expecting baby No. 2 with Hugh Dancy. “I’m seriously preggo. I’m deep into my second trimester.”

-She also says that Homeland is going to end with season 8. (Meanwhile, Showtime says it has not made a decision yet, but since actors deals are up if it were to continue, it would likely be with a new cast. Just let it go, guys.)

-There was a lot of talk when the I Feel Pretty trailer first landed, with people complaining that Amy Schumer was too pretty to play an “ugly duckling” or that the movie suggests you have to be beautiful to feel happy. Fortunately, every review I’ve read seems to indicate that the movie has the opposite message, and it’s biggest target is the ugly side of the beauty industry.

-Also, Schumer refused to be retouched in the footage. “I said, ‘Do not retouch me in this movie. Do not retouch anything.’ You see my cellulite. You see my, my rolls, whatever.”

-I love Adam Pally. I love him even more after he was escorted off the stage for trashing the awards show he was presenting at.

-Netflix has ordered a comedy series starring Idris Elba as a DJ called Turn Up Charlie. He’s on such a comedy kick lately. It’s weird.

-People Magazine’s annual issue evolved from the “50 Most Beautiful” to “the Most Beautiful Woman” and now it’s “The Beautiful Issue.” Pink and her kids made this year’s cover.

-Oh great. Here comes all the “he’s ready for a comeback” articles. This week, we got ones about Louis CK, Mario Batali and Matt Lauer.

-This thread on who will survive Game of Thrones is perfect.

-Can Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak just get married already?

-I gave up on The Santa Clarita Diet really early, but my goodness it’s impressive how Timothy Olyphant continues to be the perfect late night guest.

-Glow is returning to Netflix June 29 — which they announced with this perfect video of the cast dancing to “Maniac.
