Kate Beckinsale on her relationship with Pete Davidson

In a new interview with The Los Angeles Times, actress Kate Beckinsale, 45, opened up about her new relationship with comedian and SNL cast member Pete Davidson, 25, while promoting her new show The Widow streaming on Amazon Prime.

“I’m surprised by the interest. I’ve never been in this position before — never dated anybody who comes with their own bag of mischief. It’s all quite shocking, and something to get used to. I think if you liked the person less, you would bow out of it. If that were the main thrust of the relationship, there would be a problem. But it’s not.”

When asked how this attention has impacted her life, she says, “I’d rather not have people hiding outside my house. It’s a little old fashioned to have a woman’s personal life [looked at like that]. It’s a little bit tired.”

ONTD Indie Release Guide Graphic.png

This week, Disney releases the live action Dumbo, Hotel Mumbai expands, and Us continues to thrive at the box office. Apologies for the short post today, I am on vacation and forgot to bring my Macbook charger, and my husband’s HP has brought me to despair in five minutes time.

The films listed are from studios other than the “Big Six” - Paramount, Warner Brothers, 20th Century Fox, Universal, Columbia and Disney. Note that some of the movies listed are in their first week or two of limited release in the USA, so it may take them a few more weeks (or months) to show up in your local arthouse theater or on VOD. Check out the posts from the past few weeks for more movies that may have just opened near you: March 22nd, March 15th, and March 8th.

St. Louis man ignites online debate on how to “properly” slice bagels from Panera Bread

Another day, another “food controversy.” #BagelGate began earlier this week when a Twitter user (@AlekKrautmann) from St. Louis shared a photo of two boxes of bagels from Panera Bread that had been pre-sliced, not horizontally, but vertically. As if they went through a paper shredder. He wrote, “Today I introduced my coworkers to the St Louis secret of ordering bagels bread sliced. It was a hit!”

That tweet went on to go viral and caused the latest great food divide we see every other day. Some argued bagels are not meant to be sliced like a loaf of bread, others think this is fine and people are overreacting, you know, the usual. Even some celebrities weighed in. Panera went on to respond to the viral tweet and added, “We've learned a lot today, but in the end, a bagel is a bagel and no matter how you slice it, it’s still delicious bread.”

Viola Davis' production company (Juvee productions) had been pursuing the rights to adapt the novel for a some now, but Butler family didn't give their blessing till Nnedi Okorafor And Wanuri Kahiu signed on and showed they had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve.

Synopsis from Amazon, "Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts by reflex -- or design. He fears no one -- until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is a shapeshifter who can absorb bullets and heal with a kiss...and savage anyone who threatens those she loves. She fears no one -- until she meets Doro. From African jungles to the colonies of America, Doro and Anyanwu weave together a pattern of destiny that not even immortals can imagine."

All parties involved (Viola Davis, Nnedi Okorafor and Wanuri Kahiu) describe Wild Seed as a game changing book for them. OP has not read the book.

I feel like Viola/her production company are always taking on these epic projects that just get stuck in development hell.

Grindr poses a national security threat according to the USA

After a national security panel for the USA raised concerns over Beijing Kunlun Tech Co., Ltd., the Chinese company owning Grindr since 2016, for the data the app retrieves from users.

The specific concerns over the app were not divulged, but the U.S. has doubled down on apps that share users’ personal data, “especially if some of it involves U.S. military or intelligence personnel”.

The company said last year that it is preparing for an initial public offering (IPO) of Grindr. As a result of the panel’s intervention, Kunlun has now shifted its focus to an auction process to sell Grindr, given that the IPO would have kept Grindr under Kunlun’s control for a longer period of time.

This after a scandal last year about the app sharing the HIV status of users to other companies. The app has upwards of 3 million daily users with it being the second most used of its kind in the world, behind the Beijing-based app Blued, which has more than 30 million users worldwide

A source tells Us Weekly that “Chris didn’t treat Gaga very well toward the end of their relationship,” The source also says that Lady Gaga “really leaned on” pal Jeremy Renner after the relationship ended.

Since the breakup, Gaga has been spending time with Jeremy Renner at his Hollywood home. “They’ve become super close and hang out all the time,” another source tells Us.


Does Cardi B represent the festishization and shaming of hood culture?

After a live video from 2016 was dug up in which Cardi B touched on her life pre-fame (alleging she resorted to desperate measures like drugging and robbing men to survive), the media went into a frenzy, calling for the rapper to face prosecution and at worst, earned comparisons to R. Kelly and Bill Cosby.

DJ Booth is analyzing the backlash, and raising the question "Why do we pivot from celebrating artists for their raunchy, ratchet, hood, or gangster ways to then criticizing them?"

- The writer touches on the hypocrisy of the general public celebrating music and personalities "that glorify and extol violence, murder, theft, and all manner of unsavory behavior" only to eventually crucify the artist.

- Argues that as a society we have become incredibly adept at "compartmentalizing and selling the 'good' parts of the hood struggle, which are packaged and sold as a dream to rebellious young people who are eager to feel something other than the mundanity of their existence."

- Makes a point that Cardi has never shied away from her gritty past, but now that she's mainstream America is attempting to crucify her for the same struggles that propelled her to stardom.

- Instead of holding artists like Cardi responsible for past transgressions, we should "let go of fetishizing a culture that is a symptom of a much larger social system" and hope that future artists do not resort to committing crimes they feel are necessary to survive.

Bill Hader Kills: Interview with the New Yorker and plus interviews w/ Jimmy Kimmel

-P.S The whole article goes into some spoiler territory involving S2 so beware.
-“Being heartbroken by my first girlfriend. And Scholastic Night, when me and this other kid were the only two kids out of seventy not invited, because you had to have a C average—and I just felt like a dummy.” His sister Kara told me that she was startled by that scene: “I couldn’t believe that Bill was finally showing himself, finally being vulnerable to being denied and having his heart broken. I was almost brokenhearted watching it.” (On the monologue confession scene in the pilot episode)
-"His problem, he said, was that he defaulted to acquiescence, because of “my weird form of empathy, where I see the idea from their point of view. Which is good on set, generally, but in life it’s bad, because it makes you soft and people can walk all over you."
-“But I don’t know anything. I three times have had female journalists say to me, ‘I never found you attractive, but when you were killing people in the pilot? That was hot!"
-Says that he refuses to talk about the demise of his marriage and his mom.

Disability groups criticize imitation voice used in "Us", Santa Cruz gets business bump


Disability groups (RespectAbility and NSDA [National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association]) have spoken out against the voice Lupita Nyong'o uses in Us, saying it further creates a harmful stigma against people that suffer from it.

"One of the toughest parts of having a disability is that people make assumptions based on the way you walk, talk or act, sometimes with little understanding of what is causing it," the statement from NSDA reads.

"We understand that hearing the unique sound caused by symptoms of spasmodic dysphonia was the spark of inspiration for the voice of this character. What is difficult for us, and for the thousands of people living with spasmodic dysphonia, is this association to their voice with what might be considered haunting."

Nyong'o says in interviews that her character had the voice because of trauma, but it's a common misconception that's what causes spasmodic dysphonia. "Connecting disabilities to characters who are evil further marginalizes people with disabilities who also have significant abilities and want to contribute to their communities just like anyone else," says Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, president of RespectAbility.

Spasmodic Dysphonia affects every 2 per 100,000 people and is considered very rare.

Cara Delevingne Reveals Why She Prefers Prudish People in Bed

• She likes to get prudish people into bed... because they ain't prudish when they get into bed.
"Part of sex is connection, it's feral. You meet someone; but when they go in the bedroom its another animal. There's certain people who are super sexy and they flirt with you, but then you have sex with them and they're terrible. I like people who are really prudish, because when they get in the bedroom they are like 'what!!?' It's like a whole transformation."

• Cara revealed she is a giver, not a receiver.
"As a person generally I am really good at giving love and not receiving it, and I'm kind of the same in bed as well. There's a part of it where I find it quite difficult to receive pleasure. So I kind of just like to give."

• She is openly bisexual, has different modes depending on her partner's gender.
"I'm always very submissive with men, always. But with women I'm the opposite,"
