FRENCH FILM “CUSTODY” IS THE SCARIEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR

During a summer of testosterone-fueled supermovies, it’s almost hard to remember what a really good film looks like. The subtitled French movie Custody is one of the most amazing movie experiences we have ever had. A few weeks ago we saw what was supposed to be a “scarey” movie, “Hereditary,” but it turned out to be silly and a huge disappointment. Custody tells the story of a REAL LIFE situation and THOSE can be far more frightening than monsters or ghosts. This brilliant and subtle movie starts off documenting an ”ordinary” divorcing couple and slooowly builds up to a shocking and unbelievably frightening finale. (It could happen to YOU!) When it was over, the audience was visibly shaken – and many were in tears. Need we say more? (Opens today)

NAOMI WATTS AND LIEV SCHREIBER’S SEPARATION IS A SUCCESS

Soooo… Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber’s split after 11 years together has worked out rather well. They have two children and at first their separation in 2016 looked like it might be not so friendly. Liev, 50, was cavorting with a 25 year old beauty queen (Miss South Dakota) and playfully calling her a nanny. Luckily, Naomi started filming Gypsy for Netflix and fell for her leading man Billy Crudup – they are both 49. Gypsy was canceled, but Naomi and Billy are still together, and she and Liev are successfully co-parenting and on friendly terms.

EMMY NOMINEE SANDRA OH GOT HER JUST DESSERTS – AND IT’S ABOUT TIME!

SO happy to see Sandra Oh become the first Asian woman to get an Emmy nomination for Leading Actress in Killing Eve! It so happens that the Killing Eve BBC series is a female led project with an amazing script about two women for a change – the men are all secondary characters. It’s interesting to note that Sandra said her character was NOT written for an Asian female – just a woman- and she was surprised to be invited to audition. Sandra pointed out how that NEVER happens – her ethnicity had always limited the roles she could audition for – thanks mostly to white men, of course. Our only Emmy complaint is that the brilliant Jodie Comer from Killing Eve (above, left) was not nominated – when you watch the series, you’ll see what we mean…

WHAT DOES PETE DAVIDSON NEVER LEAVE AT HOME?

No, it’s not the side of fries – OR fiancée Ariana Grande. SNL comic Pete Davidson’s athleisure style has been described as “scumbro” (he did appear on “Queer Eye”) but we are fixated on his little bags. Literally every time he leaves the house, Pete is clutching his small black Supreme bag which can also be worn as a fanny pack or as a crossbody, like he’s wearing it today. We must note he IS starting to look like Ariana – note the baby pink sweatshirt and the freshly bleached blonde hair.

WHO’S MOST THRILLED BY JUSTIN BIEBER’S ENGAGEMENT? HILLSONG CHURCH, THAT’S WHO!

Both Justin Bieber, 25, and Hailey Baldwin, 21, credit “divine intervention” for bringing them together, which translates to: Hillsong Church. Both are members and this windfall for the megachurch can be compared to Tom Cruise’s Scientology marriage to Katie Holmes. Both Scientology and Hillsong actively recruit the young and famous to attract millenials. Plus, Hillsong churchgoers wear t -shirts and jeans and services are often held in large music venues with pop music. The 10% tithe from celebrities is nothing to scoff at. Hillsong Church is very wealthy, but lacks transparency – they don’t reveal pastors’ salaries and are criticized for opposing gay marriage, abortion, and birth control. Nevertheless, we imagine Justin and Hailey will be filling up those church venues to the max.

IS EDDIE MURPHY TOO COMPLACENT TO DO STAND-UP AGAIN?

Eddie Murphy’s girlfriend Paige Butcher went to Starbucks without Eddie for a change, but she brought their cute little girl Izzy (Eddie’s 9th child!) along for the ride. Eddie’s been leading a life of leisure and not working a lot lately, but maybe he’s finally getting busy on his upcoming movie Triplets. Ivan Reitman, who did the original 1988 comedy Twins, has spent years putting together Triplets, again starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito, with Eddie signed on as their long-lost sibling. Personally, we’d love to see Eddie do stand-up comedy again …

KEANU REEVES: WOULD YOU GIVE THIS MAN A RIDE?


How’s this for an unrealistic scene in a movie: Keanu Reeves’ hit man character in John Wick 3 and his pitbull attempt to hail a cab at night in the pouring rain at Times Square and they actually GET one! New Yorkers will get a laugh out of that – and who calls cabs these days when Lyft and Uber cars are so much cleaner? We have to give credit to Keanu- he’s been filming soaking wet – and doing stunts – at night in NYC for a lot of days in a row, but he’s still nice and approachable on the set. Reeves seems like such a decent guy, we’d be SHOCKED if anyone accused him of inappropriate behavior.

ELIZABETH HURLEY AND THE ANNABEL’S DOORMEN

This photo of Elizabeth Hurley (red dress) leaving Annabel’s legendary club in London caught our eye, not because of the lamp in her hand (a gift from the club manager perhaps?) but the DOORMEN leading her out. We have never seen security guards, bouncers, doormen – whatever you want to call them – dressed in anything but tight, black clothing to show off their muscles. These delightful flowery print suits are a revelation. No matter how fierce their faces are, the clothing is amusing. Leave it to the Brits to find humor in doorman apparel. Remember, some famous guys have been bouncers in NY – Dolph Lundgren at Limelight, and Vin Diesel at The Tunnel.

JOHNNY DEPP IS A HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRE IN REAL LIFE (AMBER HEARD WAS RIGHT)

Rolling Stone’s startling interview with Johnny Depp (he’s obviously a fan of the publication) is revealing in SO many horrible ways. Depp is obviously In denial about his “compulsive spending disorder.” He spends an average of two million dollars a month – on maintaining 14 houses and ridiculously impulsive purchases that fill 12 large storage facilities. He blames his money managers for his financial problems. His behavior is alarming – Depp attempted to extract his own tooth in a London restaurant, while in the company of Penelope Cruz and Stella McCartney. His drug use and alcohol abuse rivals that of his debauched idol Hunter S Thompson and while acting, he has his lines fed into an earpiece like his other deceased self-indulgent idol, Marlon Brando. He sleeps all day and only lives by night – reminiscent of Elvis Presley’s last days….

MADONNA CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF MIGOS RAPPERS

Madonna showed up at the Wireless Festival in London in a rather peculiar outfit with wide leg capri pants. She watched Migos’ rap performance with considerable enthusiasm and afterward she tracked down Migos member Offset for a long chat. They have a history – Madonna invited the group, along with Offset’s girlfriend Cardi B, to her Oscar party in March where Cardi performed, and they all hung out together at the Met Gala after-party. Cardi B is a huge fan of Madonna, and it’s hard NOT to predict a collaboration somewhere in these blossoming friendships…
