Amanda Seyfried went to the 92nd Street Y in bright red lace. Maybe I’m overthinking it, but given that Elizabeth Holmes had a signature red lip look during her Theranos years, maybe this is a way of referencing The Dropout and Seyfried’s performance as Holmes, without copying the actual look. If so, it’s a clever use of fashion, but I don’t really like the look either way. (Go Fug Yourself)


Taron Egerton is currently co-starring with Bridgerton’s Jonathan Bailey in Cock on the West End. They’ve gotten great reviews, but Egerton is having a real hard time with the performances. First it was his fainting spell, now it’s COVID-19 keeping him out of the show for a week. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, but I cannot imagine trying to do live performance right now. The pandemic isn’t over! (DListed)

Don’t worry, Prince William and Catherine Cambridge aren’t the only royals getting bad headlines this week. Prince Michael of Kent, the queen’s cousin, is refusing to cut ties with Russia. He’s made a lot of money there, no one is quite sure how, and he won’t divest following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. But hey, he returned a friendship medal. That’s enough, right? He can keep all that shady money, right? Right? (Celebitchy)


Nicolas Cage said words about Marvel movies, but unlike his uncle, Francis Ford Coppola, he did not ignite an internet firestorm. Mainly because he’s chill about it and is just like, “They’re fine, other movies still exist,” but I also think it might be because his career had already shifted to home video/VOD before the whole Scorsese/Marvel debate blew up a few years ago. Like he’s already made peace with his movies being viewed at home, not the theater, so why get bent out of shape about Marvel now? (Also, he’d still like to play Ghost Rider.) (Pajiba)

Scott Mendelson revisits The Hunger Games on its tenth anniversary and takes a look at the franchise’s diminished cultural footprint. I would say THG has faded from cultural memory because the movies aren’t very good, but Twilight isn’t very good and it still has pop culture currency. Why have we forgotten The Hunger Games? (Forbes)
