Would you rather...?

@madonna I ❤️you.No other caption needed

A post shared by Sarah Paulson (@mssarahcatharinepaulson) on May 2,2017 at 11:48am PDT

I can't ask a 'would you rather' with Sarah Paulson spotting Madonna at the Met Gala as an option because it would win in a landslide.Obviously anyone in their right mind would choose that.

So you get a second option.

Would you rather: a watermelon with Lindsay Lohan?
...have a wrap party with Daniel Wu?
...hang out in Uma Thurman's trailer?
...paint on/with (?) Ronnie Kroell?
...recover from jet lag with Alan Cumming?
..."walk"dogs with Doona Bae?
...or museum it with Gabby Sidibe?

There's a link in my soup

This is Just My Face is on sale nowNPRGabourey Sidibe has a book out,now "This is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare"(great title).It's about her rise to fame,body image,and being confused with her fame-making character inPreciouswhich she finds both frustrating and powerful
Time Out New Yorkpublishes its own TONY* nominations.Get it,their initials are TONY.Not to be confused with the actual Tony Award nominations which are due tomorrow to honor the best of Broadway.Consider this their "should be nominated"article
The Retro Setlooks at the new documentaryMifune: The Last Samurai,narrated by Keanu Reeves,and now available to stream on Netflix.Can't wait to watch this.

Deadlinerepublished an interesting history of the making ofSilence of the Lambs.I didn't know that the project started with Gene Hackman who was going to directandstar.
Varietyshared a really good interview with Geena Davis.I love what she says about the gender neutral movement with some awards bodies,combining male and female actors into the same category.It's a terrible idea and Geena eloquently explains why
PlaybillChita Rivera flashes back to herWest Side Storyaudition in the 1950s,the show that put her on the map
Awards Dailylooks at the prospects for Limited Series Actor...a far more shallow field than its Actress counterpart this year but at least that means its looking good for Riz Ahmed and Ewan McGregor
PlaybillCome From Away,a new Broadway musical that's expected to do very well in tomorrow's Tony nominations,is getting its own documentary feature calledCome From Away: From Gander to Broadway.It's the true story of a group of strangers diverted into a small town after the 9/11 terrorist attacks grounded airplanes.

Interviewhas Kate Hudson interview her mom Goldie Hawn.It starts enjoyably silly and familial but gets deep into "mindfulness."Goldie is almost back onscreen (Snatched) after a 15 year retirement (that they're somehow calling a "hiatus").Love this bit about how therapy (which she started around the time ofLaugh-In) helped her keep sane despite becoming a household name in her early 20s:

I realized that the way people see me,as a star,has nothing to do with me.It's like a Rorschach test,like I am something they can identify with,learn to love,learn to hate,learn to resent ...but I gave it back to them.So if somebody said to me,"Oh,I love you!"—that makes me happy to see them happy,but I wouldn't take it in as something that builds my ego.And that's how I stabilized myself.

Have a lovely Monday,everyone.How do you plan to "stabilize"yourself this week?

AV Clubon the proliferation and pros and cons of the anthology format,postAmerican Horror Story.Interesting but I dearly wish people would stop crediting Ryan Murphy with inventing a genre.Anthologies have existed since the beginning of television.He just popularized them again after a few decades when they went mostly extinct.It's like crediting Baz Luhrmann for inventing musicals or something.

Here atTFEwe recently discussed that recent damning Miles Tellers profile in Esquire and The New York Times has now published"a brief history of the tough celebrity profile"featuring Mira Sorvino,Cara Delevingne,Ernest Hemingway,and more.I thought I'd share it sincewe were just talking about Mira Sorvino at length in Mighty Aphrodite.
