Brooklyn Beckham's ex says he's 'too immature' for marriage



Lexy Panterra, 31, apparently dated Brooklyn for a year in 2017 when he would've been 18 (yikes).

Said “I was pretty shocked and confused when I heard he got engaged,” Lexy, who is known as a dancer and performer, told the outlet. “It’s not something anyone was expecting and, honestly, Brooklyn is not ready for that. He is very young and way too immature.”

Also claimed that he has a "new chick every month".

He previously dated Chloe Moretz on-and-off, and VB 'lookalike' Hana Cross. He is now engaged to Nicola Peltz.

Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times, except when dining or swimming.
You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you should be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing."

Alicia Silverstone on the Legacy of Clueless, 25 Years Later


Amy gets a kick out of telling that story about you mispronouncing “Haitians” during the debate class scene and making sure nobody corrected you. What happened when you found out how it was actually pronounced?
Thankfully I was only 17 so hopefully we can forgive and forget. I sadly don't think I'd ever even heard of the Haitians at that time either, which is probably embarrassing. There was another word I got wrong too but she corrected me on that one because it was so ridiculous.

Who out of the core cast would you say was the most similar to their onscreen counterpart?
Paul Rudd maybe? He's just a good guy who's smart and lovable and all those good things that make up Josh. Brittany Murphy was not like Tai. I don’t know Stacey Dash well enough to say for certain whether she’s like Dionne, but I'm guessing not much.

What do you remember from your first meeting with Brittany Murphy?
I just remember thinking she was so great for the part. I can't remember how many girls came in to audition for Tai that day and I don't know if I saw a few girls for it or just her, but I remember Brittany being really adorable. She's so good at the little accent because she had one already, but I think she just pushed it to new heights. I found her so wonderful and I said to Amy right away “I think she's the one! She was the best one you guys!” hoping they would agree. She was like “Uh yeah duh. Of course she was the best, she’s the one.

Were there any responses to the film at the time that were particularly meaningful for you?
I was really well-received by the gay community after Clueless came out. They’ve always been my people. I don't know if it's just this film or my vibe that’s endeared me to them, but that has always been my favorite aspect of the film. Particularly what it means to gay boys.

Why do you think audiences in 2020 get just as much out of the film now as audiences in 1995 did?
I think people identify with Cher's heart and her willingness to change and grow because of how silly she was. She was trying hard to evolve because of her sweet Josh. I don't know how to explain why or what made Clueless what it was, but I know it happened and I know that people continue to love it. And it never gets old, so that's the good news. People always say Oh you must be so sick of it. But what's there to be sick of? People liking the movie you're in? It truly doesn't get better.

Lisa Marie Presley Could Lead John Travolta From Scientology, Journalist & Friends Speculate




  • John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston died of breast cancer on July 12 at the age of 57. The news was announced by Travolta on Instagram, where he thanked not Scientology but the staff at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Preston was a longtime member and true believer of Scientology.

  • The question is brought up with Travolta's many losses if he'd rethink his Scientology affiliation and experts and former members agree Lisa Marie Presley may have influence on Travolta (LMP, who left the cult between 2014 and 2016, was brought into the org as a child with her mother Priscilla by Travolta and they remained close).

  • Travolta and Presley would get together to gossip and drink wine, which Preston disapproved of. These sessions continued even after Presley left Scientology, and Lisa would gossip about Scientology leader David Miscavige with Travolta. She also encouraged Travolta to reconsider Scientology and to use her home in Hawaii so he could be alone and “be who you are.”

  • Preston was the more strict and committed Scientologist of the couple and shielded Travolta from negativity about the cult. Former members say without Kelly's influence, and with their closeness in tragedy, Lisa Marie may finally be able to coax Travolta out for good.

Tenet delayed indefinitely


Warner Bros has finally taken a hint and has removed Tenet from the schedule indefinitely, 3 weeks before its rescheduled release.

Chairman Toby Emmerich stated a new date will be released later and that the film will not be treated like a traditionally distributed global day-and-date release. Does that mean overseas gets it before the States? Premium VOD with Drive-in? Time will tell.

Warners has also moved The Conjuring 3, set for September 11, to June 4, 2021. Wonder Woman 1984 and Dune continue to remain at their current dates, though maybe not for long.

Are Pet Cats Fed Up With Owners Being Home All Day During Quarantine?




Quarantine isn’t only ruining marriages, it’s ruining relationships with owners and their cats!

Cats just want some peace and quiet — but they can't get it when you're at home all day long. According to some experts, they've had enough, and have been acting out because of it. Jackson Galaxy, cat behaviorist and host of Animal Planet's ‘My Cat From Hell,’ said he has been inundated with pleas for help since the pandemic began. “I think there's humans who are just unduly stressed out and there are cats who are unduly stressed out and it's coming together, you know” Galaxy said.

Gen Z Bullies Lin-Manuel Miranda on TikTok


Some TikTok and Twitter users are debating whether LMM's recent social media hiatus is a response to the internet rediscovering his lip biting photos and Hamilton demo tapes in the wake of the musical's new Disney+ audience.

The trend started with TikTok users using a common trope where someone "accidentally" reveals the contents of their camera roll, internet search history, messages, or wallpaper under the guise of showing off something else. Here's an example from @okayelisabeth (TikTok won't embed).

This sparked other videos like @kcmbrly's and @citriine's which showcase Lin's liberal use of the ostensibly seductive look and @j.breazy's inserting the photos into random situations like a visual rickroll.

Some users also paired the photos with an ~erotic~ scene from an audio book Lin read:
[More under the cut]

And others used Armie Hammer as inspiration for their POVs:


[Origins]Lin posted these himself for some reason.


Most famously without any context at all:


And there have been many more:

Please note that he sold the one with the "Rise Up/Wise Up/Eyes Up" hat for $79.


[The Hamilton demos]The spotlight on LMM inspired other TikTok users to make videos using his first drafts of Hamilton songs, which feature his struggle vocals filling every role. This includes @gwxnie17 making earrings out of his face. For fun, here's the full version of Lin's demo of Satisfied compared to Renée Elise Goldsberry's final take:

Dua Lipa pisses off people with "Greater Albania" post

The Charismaless Queen of Bops ticked off some people in the Balkans today by posting this on instagram:

Screen Shot 2020-07-20 at 17.55.39.png

For context, as per Wikipedia, "Greater Albania" is the concept that seeks to unify the lands that many Albanians consider to form their national homeland, based on claims on the present-day or historical presence of Albanian populations in those areas and includes, aside from Albania and Kosovo, parts of Serbia, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Greece.

Dua has been outspoken about her heritage since she first came out, but apparently this was the straw that broke the camel's back and #dualipaisoverparty trended for a while on Serbian twitter, loud but impactless as most Serbian twitter trends are.

Honestly, I am bored and this has been a shitshow to follow on Balkan twitter so *shrug emoji* Also, mods, the actual post is sourced but I still have no idea how to embed instagram posts on LJ

But who could complain when a terrific actor was playing a great role? However, the classroom scene in which Amy/Florence was surrounding by actual 13-year-old children required too much suspension of my disbelief."

The Old Guard roundup: Interview with Van Veronica Ngo; film one of Netflix's all-time Top 10 hits



Insider recently chatted with Vietnamese actress Van Veronica Ngo, who had several scene-stealing turns in Netflix films this year, such as Da 5 Bloods (as Hanoi Hannah) and The Old Guard (as the immortal Quynh).

* Ngo was raised in Norway and returned to Vietnam, where she pursued a career as a model and pop star. She later transitioned into acting and starred in several blockbuster hits there, including The Rebel and Furie (currently streaming on Netflix). She also started taking on roles in other Netflix films like the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel and Bright, but finally got her big break as Paige Tico (or Rose Tico aka Kelly Marie Tran's sister) in The Last Jedi. Ngo says she knew little about what she was actually doing in the film because there was so much secrecy around the production.

* She later got calls to talk to Spike Lee and Gina Prince-Bythewood for her roles in Da 5 Bloods (where Hanoi Hannah is seen making radio broadcasts telling the black GIs to turn against the USA) and The Old Guard respectively. She was offered the latter role after Charlize Theron watched Furie and was impressed by her performance.

* Ngo was offered the role of Noriko (who is Japanese) from the comics. However, she insisted that her film character should instead be Vietnamese, to reflect her own heritage. "I read the script and I told Charlize about wanting to really relate to the character by acknowledging me as a Vietnamese actress," Ngo said. "China cinema is so dominant over all the Asian countries. For Western audiences, we all have black hair and brown eyes and we're all Chinese and I don't like that. I'm proud of my country, my nation, my people. We have a long history in cinema so it should be embraced. Every character I play in Hollywood I would love to show that pride of my nation." Theron and Prince-Bythewood agreed, and the latter was actually the person who found the name Quynh, which Ngo loved.

* A sequel has not been commissioned yet, but if it is, Quynh will likely be important based on the source material [spoilers!](where she/Noriko kidnaps Booker and becomes the main antagonist - a global crime boss type, and also had a past romantic relationship/present bad blood with Andy).
