The ‘Barbie’ movie… Justin Theroux posts video… Ben Affleck’s early Valentine’s Day gift for JLo… Celebs at the Super Bowl… and Kanye West continues to share bizarre Instagram posts
In movie news, they’ve been trying to get this Barbie movie made for years now. Originally, Amy Schumer was going to star as real-life Barbie with a 2017 release date. But for whatever reason, Amy dropped out and the role went to Anne Hathaway. Then in 2018, it was announced that Margot Robbie was cast as Barbie with Ryan Gosling as her Ken. Perfect! And the latest casting news is that “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera and “Shang-Chi” star Simu Liu have joined the movie, but their roles are being kept secret. In other movie news, during a virtual panel “This Is Us” creator Dan Fogelman was asked if he would ever revisit the show in the future. He said, “I say no to nothing. If we can figure out a movie and can get together with (the cast) again in a few years, I’d love to. I don’t know what it would be because we close out our story in the series finale…I suspect that, when I want to do something again for ‘This Is Us’ with these guys, they’re going to be very busy.” Dan said an idea for a follow-up movie could be “what would have happened if Jack survived the fire.” And then a few minutes later, Dan said, “The president of NBC is literally texting me right now: ‘Yes to the movie.’” By the way, the series finale of “This Is Us” will air on May 24, so you’ve got 13 episodes to go before it’s over….for now.
Simu Liu is in talks to star with Margot Robbie & Ryan Gosling in the ‘Barbie’ movie
Jennifer Aniston turned 53 on Friday and her ex-husband Justin Theroux decided to post a happy birthday video for her on his IG Story. It’s an up-close video set to Taylor Swift’s song “Look What You Made Me Do.” At the beginning of the video, it’s zoomed in on Jennifer’s mouth and she’s lighting a cigarette. The camera pulls out in slow motion and shows her shaking her head back and forth and wearing an “I’m a cool blonde” sweatshirt. Then Justin wrote, “Yes you are. <3 Love u B!” I’m guessing the minute she saw it she fired off a “TAKE THIS DOWN NOW!” text because he deleted it.
If you were lucky enough to be dating Jennifer Lopez, what would you give her for Valentine’s Day? In her newsletter “On the JLo” — and how did I not know Jennifer Lopez has a newsletter?? — Jennifer revealed that Ben re-edited the music video to her song “On My Way” from her new movie “Marry Me,” and she loved it so much she shared it with all of us! Ben spliced in personal photos from the first time they were together, with footage from her “Jenny from the Block” video and their movie “Gigli.” And at the very end, Ben wrote, “My Valentine.”
“Watching it made me think about the journey of true love, it’s unexpected twists and turns, and that when it’s real, it actually can last forever,” @JLo said of the tribute video Ben Affleck directed for her. https://t.co/uDrfqEzzBu— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) February 12, 2022
As expected, a ton of celebrities were at SoFi Stadium to see the LA Rams beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-20, in Super Bowl LVI. I was really surprised to see Prince Harry there with his cousin Princess Eugenie. No Meghan in sight. Odell Beckham Jr. ran over and threw his game gloves to North and Saint West, who were there with their completely masked daddy, Kanye. Sitting right behind them was Kylie Jenner’s ex, Tyga. Also at the game were Justin and Hailey Bieber, who shared a box with Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker. Also spotted in private boxes were Shawn Mendes with Niall Horan, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Ryan Reynolds with Will Ferrell, Charlize Theron, Kevin Hart, Rebel Wilson, Sean Penn, Mark Wahlberg, and Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, who were seen mingling with Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Before Kanye took his two oldest kids to the Super Bowl, he went after Pete Davidson on Instagram. He posted a screenshot of a text message Pete had sent him about how he respected his co-parenting relationship with Kim Kardashian and looked forward to meeting the kids someday. Kanye then posted a photo of Pete and Machine Gun Kelly being silly in their underwear from an IG Live they did for Calvin Klein. Kanye captioned it, “NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN.” He also posted a picture of Pete’s Hillary Clinton tattoo and captioned it, “Y’all seen that tattoo but if I speak up then I’m crazy.” He also posted a photoshopped movie poster of the Marvel characters Venom and Carnage squaring off, but with the faces of Kanye as Venom and Pete as Carnage. And just in case anyone suspected Kanye’s IG had been hacked, he posted photos of him holding a handwritten note with the day’s date just so we’d all know for sure that this was ALL him. There was a lot more, but if you didn’t see it, it’s all been deleted. And a calmer Kanye posted last night, “HOW GREAT IS IT TO BE A FREE ARTIST. I FOUGHT FOR MY FAMILY. WE HAD SUNDAY SERVICE. TRENDED OVER THE SUPERBOWL WHILE AT THE SUPER BOWL WITH MY KIDS. ODELL GAVE ME AND MY KIDS HIS GLOVES. DRE PERFORMED. RAMS WON. AND I DID A SUPERBOWL COMMERCIAL WITH MCDONALDS. GOD HAS A PLAN. LOVE OVER FEAR. TODAY WAS AWESOME.” Then this morning, he added, “I DON’T HAVE BEEF WITH KIM I LOVE MY FAMILY SO STOP THAT NARRATIVE IM NOT GIVING UP ON MY FAMILY I BOUGHT THIS COAT FOR KIM BEFORE SNL I THOUGHT IT WAS PARTICULARLY SPECIAL I HAVE FAITH THAT WE‘LL BE BACK TOGETHER I NEVER HAD ANYTHING AGAINST DAILYMAIL I GOT LOVE FOR EVERYONE IN THE MEDIA AND I WISH YOU ALL THE HAPPINESS IN THE WORLD I SPEAK DIRECTLY TO THE MEDIA OUTLETS THE SAME WAY A BALL PLAYER SPEAKS TO THE REFS THE WORLD IS OUR COURT LIKE A BASKETBALL COURT AND THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION WE HAVE A PUBLIC RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE WE ARE PUBLIC FIGURES SO TO THE PUBLIC AND TO THE PRESS SOMETIMES PEOPLE CALL ME CRAZY BUT TO BE IN LOVE IS TO BE CRAZY ABOUT SOMETHING AND I AM CRAZY ABOUT MY FAMILY HAPPY VALENTINES.” Thank you, Kanye. Happy Valentine’s Day to you, too.
