Viola Davis was on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night to promote Widows. She says that during filming, they had a makeup artist on set who encouraged everyone to take part in a 28-day cleanse. The only food they could consume had to be sipped, since chewing and sucking were forms of “aggression.” To be honest, aggressive sucking sounds like a whole lot of people’s idea of a good time, but apparently not for that makeup artist. Viola says she decided to participate, because she wanted to release her anger.
“This was going to be a game changer for me. We had to do it for 28 days. I lasted for two days. I was in the damn Jacuzzi one day and my niece called, and she pissed me off so damn bad…I went upstairs, ate a hamburger. Went to the drive through at McDonald’s. Couldn’t drink alcohol, had a big thing of vodka with soda water and lemon.
And the next day, [the makeup artist] was like, ‘Now Viola, how is it all going?’. I said, ‘I don’t have time for this. I need my anger, I’ve got a chip on my shoulder, I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder, and it works for me. Because if I don’t let this stuff out, I’m going to blow up.'”
Viola should have seen this one coming. If she didn’t mess around with the on-set shenanigans of Jared Leto, what makes her think she could deal with hunger for a month? Her response to that cleanse was the same as I had when I tried to do a week-long juice cleanse. I too managed two days, and drove myself straight to McDonald’s to eat three cheeseburgers in a parking lot. Hmmm…I think we just discovered McDonald’s newest potential marketing strategy.
When Tom Cruise gets his annual physical at the Church of Scientology’s medical facility, he steps up on the scale and the doctor announces: “Sweet thetans Tom, you’ve grown another 4 inches this year! Don’t hit your head on the door frame when you leave.” Which is very kind of them, but probably not the truth, considering the author of the Jack Reacher novels just came out and said that Tom is too tiny to play the title character again.
Looks like we got the budget version of Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s shoe-throwing fight at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party. This one is about former rapper Iggy Azalea and the reason I curse Dr. Phil’s name, the Cash Me Ousside girl (aka Bhad Bhabie aka Danielle Bregoli).
Then again – according to Zoë Kravitz – you probably won’t find it on many people’s nightstands.
On Tuesday night’s Watch What Happens Live, Zoë Kravitz and Eddie Redmayne were there to promote Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald. During the call-in portion of the show, Zoë was asked about her appearance in Lily Allen’s memoir My Thoughts Exactly. Much like the title of that book, Zoë let everyone know exactly what she thinks about Lily, which is basically: Zoë is not a fan.
CNBC is reporting that the CEO of Victoria’s Secret’s lingerie division, Jan Singer has resigned and plans to step down after working with VS for two years. It’s only Wednesday, and Victoria’s Secret has already had a stinkier week than my friend that time a bottle of VS Strawberries & Champagne exploded in her car.
It’s time again for another chapter in the ongoing saga titled: How Serious Are Jennifer Garner And That Burger-Flipping Tech CEO. Today we’re talking about what title Jennifer Garner has bestowed upon John Miller, the guy she’s reportedly been seeing for about seven months. Seven months is definitely long enough to call someone the b-word. But according to People magazine, she’s not calling him that. A source says that Jen is keeping it casual:
“She doesn’t call him her boyfriend. But she loves getting attention from John. They have fun together and it’s easy. She only sees John when she isn’t busy with her kids. He understands that her kids are her number one priority.”
The source adds that John still hasn’t met her three kids, which might contribute to how casual Jen is keeping things. She also appears to be enjoying how quiet and un-public this relationship is.
“As far as dating goes, Jen very much enjoys it. For so long, she couldn’t see herself dating. Her friends are very excited that she is dating. She is very much trying to get things private though.”
The source also says that Jen is happy that both her’s and John’s divorces have finally been wrapped up. But who cares about that? What matters here is what she’s calling John when she gets white wine drunk with her book club. Is she going with the standard “my man“? The much more gag-triggering “lover“? Personally, I think she should play off his job as a burger chain CEO and call John her all-beef patty daddy.
