Bennifer Hangs Out With Matt Damon



Bennifer were in Malibu Sunday evening after their dinner in Beverly Hills the night before. A banned source hilariously doesn't ID the friend with them who is clearly Matt Damon.

This comes after Matt stated he was "so happy" about the Bennifer reunion. This also comes after Matt put his foot in his mouth very publicly.

Midnight Mass teaser trailer



From the producers of The Haunting of Hill House, MIDNIGHT MASS introduces Crockett Island, an isolated island community that experiences miraculous events - and frightening omens – following the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest.

MIDNIGHT MASS tells the tale of a small, isolated island community whose existing divisions are amplified by the return of a disgraced young man (Zach Gilford) and the arrival of a charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater). When Father Paul’s appearance on Crockett Island coincides with unexplained and seemingly miraculous events, a renewed religious fervor takes hold of the community - but do these miracles come at a price?

The Olympics Might be Over, but the Drama Continues!

The cauldron has been extinguished, but Rhythmic Gymnastics continues to bring the drama. For those not in the know, Russia has DOMINATED rhythmic gymnastics since basically time immemorial. But not this year! This year, Russia (competing as the Russian Olympic Committee instead of under the Russian flag because the IOC decided this was sufficient punishment for Russia's state sponsored doping program) did not win gold in either the All Around OR Team events!

Russia, of course, has accepted this with grace.

haha just kidding. Of course they haven't! If they had, I wouldn't making this post. This AP article gives a brief overview, but I'll link some of the jucier reactions under the cut.

So, what say you ONTD?

Was this a rhythmic gymnastic conspiracy to dethrone Russia? Or did the rightful winners take home the gold?

'Barry' is finally back in production


• The Bill Hader dramedy aired its season two finale back in May 2019 and was a few weeks from starting production on its third season in March 2020, but of course filming had to be shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

• Back in January, Hader appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers and he mentioned that the downtime had allowed the writers to finish scripts for season 3 and season 4 they were just waiting for HBO to give them a start date.

• In a separate interview co-star Stephen Root talked about how they were trying to convince HBO to allow them to shoot both seasons back to back in order to avoid anymore production delays.

this goes out to all the barry stans on ontd. there are dozens of us! dozens!

Jon Stewart and Pete Davidson organize comedy benefit for the 20th anniversary of 9/11


• The event, named "NYC Still Rising After 20 Years: A Comedy Celebration" is set for September 12 at Madison Square Garden. It will mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks and will serve as a benefit for multiple 9/11 charities.

• Stewart and Davidson came up with the idea together. Davidson lost his father in the aftermath of the attacks, and Stewart has long been an advocate of 9/11 first responders even speaking on their behalf in front of Congress in order to lobby for permanent funding for the Victims Compensation Fund.

• The show will feature sets from Davidson and Stewarts, and from multiple performers including Amy Schumer, Colin Jost, Jay Pharoah, Jimmy Fallon, John Mulaney, Michael Che, and Wanda Sykes.

• The article makes it a point to mention that attendees must provide proof of full vaccination and that no recording devices will be allowed through the door.

Wife Beater Johnny Depp to Receive Life Time Achievement Award for Some Reason



  • Spain’s San Sebastian International Film Festival will honor disgraced actor and wife-beater Johnny Debt Depp on September 22nd 2021.

  • The festival’s announcement of the award makes no reference to the controversy surrounding Depp or his recent troubles.

  • Depp is these days often seen as publicly toxic after his failed libel suit against British tabloid The Sun, which ended with the courts upholding the paper’s description of him as a “wife beater” and the ruling judge indicating he believed Depp had assaulted ex-wife Amber Heard on multiple occasions. The ruling led directly to Warner Bros. dumping Depp from its Fantastic Beasts franchise and replacing him with Mads Mikkelsen in the role of evil wizard Grindelwald. More recently, Minamata, a passion project for Depp in which he plays an American photographer who brought the world’s attention to a devastating environmental disaster in Japan, was reportedly buried by MGM to avoid the controversy swirling around its star.

I have no words. Maybe he'll try and sell the award for money next year to try and sue Amber again

Quentin Tarantino Vowed to Never Give His Mom “a Penny” Due to Childhood Insult



Quentin Tarantino revealed in a podcast that he has not done much to support his mother financially after she insulted his interest in writing as a young man.

“She was bitching at me about that,” Tarantino said, “and then, in the middle of her little tirade, she said, ‘Oh and by the way, this little writing career?’ — with the finger quotes — ‘this little writing career that you’re doing? That shit is fucking over!’ She just meant don’t do it in class when you’re supposed to be doing something else.”

“When she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I was in my head and I go: ‘Okay, lady. When I become a successful writer, you will never see penny one from my success. There will be no house for you. There’s no vacation for you; no Elvis Cadillac for mommy. You get nothing because you said that.”

He confirmed to the podcast that other than helping his mom out with an IRS issue, he's stuck to that promise. When the interviewer suggested Tarantino buy her a house anyway because that taunt might have helped fuel his drive to succeed, Tarantino responded:

“There are consequences for your words as you deal with your children! Remember: There are consequences for your sarcastic tone about what’s meaningful to them.”

'Back to Basics,' Christina Aguilera's fifth studio album, turns 15


Today marks 15 years since Christina Aguilera released Back to Basics, her ambitiously experimental and critically lauded fifth studio album.

A two-disc suite paying homage to some of the pop powerhouse's greatest inspirations, Back to Basics saw Aguilera adopting a new alter ego, Baby Jane, and recruiting a team of heavy-hitting producers—including DJ Premier, Linda Perry and Mark Ronson—to cross-pollinate contemporary hip-hop, pop and R&B sounds with retro elements.

Back to Basics debuted atop the Billboard 200 with 346,000 copies sold in its first week—16,000 more than its predecessor, Stripped, four years prior—and yielded two Top 20 singles ("Ain't No Other Man" and "Hurt"). It scored Aguilera a GRAMMY for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (for "Ain't No Other Man," in 2007) and is retrospectively regarded as her riskiest album.

Why Are Celebrities Moving to Austin, Texas?

ontd austin.jpeg

Los Angeles is usually the home for A-list actors and musicians. However, many are ditching the city for Austin, Texas.

Some include:

  • James Van der Beek
  • Joe Rogan
  • Jared Padalecki
  • Stephen Amell
  • Zachary Levi
  • Chris Harrison
  • Elon Musk
  • Debby Ryan
  • Parker Posey
  • Tan France
  • Scott Eastwood
  • Adrienne Palicki
  • Adrian Grenier

A few hypotheses for the exodus is that celebrities are sick of the regulations of California and prefer the libertarian vibes of Texas, that they want to buy up cheaper real estate, and that they are vacuous assholes who follow other people's trends.

Where would you rather live?

Nick Cannon explains unorthodox lifestyle



Nick Cannon, having multiple babies with multiple girlfriends, is a way of rebelling against the “Eurocentric” institution of marriage. 

“That’s a Eurocentric concept … the idea that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life. The idea that a man should have one woman. We shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person. Those women, and all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say, ‘I would like to allow this man into my world and I will birth this child,’ It ain’t my decision. I’m just following suit.”

“If we’re really talking about how we co-exist and how we populate, it’s about what exchange can we create together. I understand the institution of marriage, but if we go back to what that was about … [it] was to classify property. One father gave another man his daughter for land. So when you really get to that concept it’s like, we gotta change this up. I don’t want ownership over anybody. I don’t have ownership over any of the mothers. We create families in the sense that we created a beautiful entity.”

“Every woman in my life that I deal with or [have] dealt with … they know how I feel. And it usually is a concept like, I’m not going around like, ‘Who am I gonna impregnate next?’ Nah. When you really look at how the family infrastructure is designed, the woman is the one that always leads and makes decisions,” 

“Everyone is like, ‘How is he convincing these women?’ … But I’m not. I’m the one in the scenario who has to follow suit on what they decide. For every single one of my kids, I’m at every basketball game, I’m at every martial arts practice. People don’t understand how I do it, but my children are my priority.”

Hilarie Burton opens up about shooting an "inappropriate" makeout scene on One Tree Hill



Burton got candid about filming a makeout session between Peyton and Lucas.
She was told to undress Murray while they kissed in his father’s bedroom at a party.
She told the episode’s director she would only do two or three takes and that it was too “inappropriate” to do any more than that. She had a conversation with her manager.
Burton went on to reveal the support she had from her co-stars and crew.

“Chad was cool to leave a white tank top on underneath his button-up shirt so I wasn’t just kissing his bare body because that’s weird. We’d all known each other for a couple of months [or] a couple weeks? I was so whacked out about it. They wanted me kissing all the way down his body, down to his belt. I don’t know that you see it, but I had to undo his belt.”

“I was, like, crying in my trailer. I’m like, ‘I don’t want to do this. It feels dirty. It feels like they’re trying to sex everything up,’ I felt like a prostitute. It was the first moment that I was, like, ‘I’m kissing someone for money. I’m getting paid to do this, like, performative [thing]’. There’s a morality thing where you’re like, ‘Am I a sex worker in a way? Is this OnlyFans in 2003?’”
