Alexis Bledel Has Left “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Saying That She Felt She Had To “Step Away”

May 29, 2022 / Posted by:

Yesterday, I posted about how Matthew Morrison was forced to leap out of So You Think You Can Dance? after he broke production protocols, which he says fucked with his ability to “judge the competition fairly.” Well, today I’m posting about how Alexis Bledel has left Hulu’s award-winning torture porn The Handmaid’s Tale, which is in the middle of filming season 5. Like Matthew Morrison, Alexis’ exit is sudden, but unlike Matthew Morrison, it sounds like she wasn’t pushed out the exit door. Alexis seems as done with Handmaid’s Tale as people working on HBO’s Titans were done with her husband Vincent Kartheiser’s insufferable method fuckery.

Elisabeth Moss Would Like You All To Stop Comparing “The Handmaid’s Tale” To Scientology

April 29, 2022 / Posted by:

If you’ve ever watched The Handmaid’s Tale, and thought that Gilead’s terrifying sexist totalitarian slave-based cult-like dystopia felt a little too close to the general vibes put out by the Church of Scientology, you’re likely not alone. Elisabeth Moss stars as the feminist freedom-fighter June in The Handmaid’s Tale, and she’s also a longtime Scientologist. So there are many people who have a hard time making sense of that. Elisabeth isn’t really Scientology’s unofficial PR person, so she doesn’t usually have a whole lot to say when it comes to her religion of choice. But she recently got into it during an interview with The New Yorker, and she encourages all of us to stop drawing comparisons between the two.

Elisabeth Moss Will Play Former Congresswoman Katie Hill, And Katie Hill’s Former Staff Aren’t Feeling It

October 7, 2020 / Posted by:

Variety reported yesterday that Elisabeth Moss was signed on to play former California Congresswoman Katie Hill in a streaming film adaptation of Katie’s book She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality. Katie was in office for exactly ten months in 2019, before she was forced to resign after it was found out that she had an inappropriate relationship with a campaign staffer, and after defending herself against nude photos that were released without her consent. It sounds exactly the kind of role that would inevitably add to Elisabeth’s already large collection of acting awards and nominations. Except that not everyone is excited to see Elisabeth play the former Congresswoman. Katie Hill’s own former staff have recently made it clear that they’re all side-eyeing the decision.

Sofia Vergara Is Forbes’ Highest Paid Female Actor of 2020

October 5, 2020 / Posted by:

Alms, alms for the poor” is what you might hear when passing a forlorn, hunched over Scarlett Johansson on the street (look closely, she may be disguised as a tree) because since being named last year’s (and the year before) highest-paid female actor by Forbes Magazine, she’s fallen on hard times and did not even crack the top 10 in this year’s rankings. This year, because the coronavirus has forced studios to postpone releasing anything in the theaters, therefore cutting off back end bonuses, the top 10 is filled with TV stars with Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara securing the #1 slot with a $43 million bag, almost half of what the highest-paid male actor, The Rock, earned. Silly woman, I guess she should have worked a little harder!

A Virtual “Mad Men” Reunion May Happen

June 11, 2020 / Posted by:

It’s been just over five years since Mad Men ended, the show you can blame for some very questionable (read: ugly) sixties-inspired fashion choices in my early twenties.

Now, in the age of Corona, Corona, many TV show and film casts have virtually reunited, either for table reads of past episodes, or just general discussion. While everybody’s favorite Scientologist, Elisabeth Moss, was doing the rounds for her new movie Shirley, an interviewer asked her if the Mad Men gang would ever consider doing a “Zoom-union” (blegh). The famously vague Elisabeth kept it ambiguous as always, but alluded that it may already be in the works. Continue reading

Elisabeth Moss Reacts To The Rumor That She Was Engaged To Fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise

March 3, 2020 / Posted by:

Unlike some of her peers, Elisabeth Moss has always remained pretty tight lipped and vaguely bullshitty about her role as a lifelong Scientologist. Her most aggressive public stand was when she walked out of the room after Leah Remini won a Television Critics Award for the Scientology takedown docu-series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath. Recently, Elisabeth’s been out there promoting her new movie, The Invisible Man, a role originally intended for Johnny Depp. While on Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked about the rumors she was engaged to Scientology Messiah, Tom Cruise.
