Brian Cox is once again dragging Method acting. I’m not trying to start sh-t, except for how I am, but it feels sort of…personal, doesn’t it? There is famously a breach between the British and American approaches to acting (see also: that probably apocryphal story about Laurence Olivier telling Dustin Hoffman to “just try acting”), but Jeremy Strong has become a poster boy for Method acting over the last couple years and now the voice of McDonald’s himself can’t stop talking sh-t on Method actors. Dare I detect friction between Pa and Boy Roy? (DListed)


A new trailer for the Bridgerton spin-off, Queen Charlotte, dropped. I continue to be concerned about how this franchise addresses race, but DAMN, the chemistry between George and Charlotte is LEGIT. I am already in my feelings, as the kids say, about the mere idea that at least part of older Charlotte’s bitterness is that George faded away and they did not have a happy ending. Ugh! Romance!

I really love Georges Hobeika’s designs. He’s one of the few couturiers I feel truly approaches fashion as wearable art (Iris Van Herpen is another). His fall/winter collection is gorgeous. I want that quilted pink coat! (Go Fug Yourself)

French tabloids are reporting that Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco are “formally separating”. The Prince’s Palace denies it, but like. Would anyone be surprised? (Celebitchy)

Culture critic BL Panther looks back at Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds concert and examines the Lynchian implications of Miley’s triple identity act. Oh, did you think it was a Disney-manufactured spectacle? No! It was a murder most brazen, committed on stage, in full view of Hannah Montana’s adoring tween audience and the Jonas Brothers! Miley killed Hannah and Miley Stewart so that Miley Cyrus could live. (Into)
