​Leighton Meester and Adam Brody​ Say They Dress Up Like Blair and Seth Once a Year

29 June 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Adam Brody and Leighton Meester are well-known for their beloved shows, The O.C. and Gossip Girl respectively, which makes their marriage a match made in teen-drama heaven. Even though the couple, who share 22-month-old daughter Arlo, usually shies away from talking about their relationship to the media, they made an exception during Feeding America's Summer Hunger Awareness event at Para Los Niños Charter School on Tuesday. They indulged fans a little when they talked about the theory that their characters Seth and Blair - who couldn't be more opposite - ended up together in real life. "Once a year we have a Seth and Blair day - we dress up," Adam joked. "It's good for a laugh." Uh, raise your hand if you wish he wasn't joking. "It doesn't excite us, I think, because we're just human beings," Leighton added. "But it's exciting to us that it's exciting to you. »

In a new column for WSJ. Magazine, the 31-year-old actress opens up about the "addictive" nature of gossiping, and how it has affected her life in the spotlight. 

"I’ve never lived for gossip, but I get it. It’s only human to want a little bit of something that’s bad for you, whether it’s chocolate or alcohol or a piece of juicy gossip," she shares. "But, like anything, gossip in excess can become increasingly addictive."

"To some extent, gossip is pleasurable for the very same reasons we enjoy watching movies and TV -- it’s a fantasy of sorts, a close-up look at someone else’s life. But it’s important »

Mila Kunis & Kate McKinnon in Talks for Susanna Fogel’s “The Spy Who Dumped Me”

20 March 2017 8:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Mila Kunis in “Bad Moms

Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon may be teaming up for a woman-directed comedy. The actresses are in talks to star in Susanna Fogel’s “The Spy Who Dumped Me,” Deadline reports.

If they sign on for the project, Kunis and McKinnon will play BFFs who “unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her was actually a spy,” the source summarizes.

Imagine Entertainment is producing the feature, and Lionsgate will distribute. Filming is expected to kick off this summer.

Folks have been speculating about who will play James Bond and helm the next franchise film for years, but these conversations have been dominated by male actors and directors. We’re already so much more invested in “The Spy Who Dumped Me.”

Another female-led espionage comedy, Paul Feig’s “Spy,” starring Melissa McCarthy, grossed over $365 million worldwide on a budget of $65 million.

Chasing Life” co-creator Fogel will co-write the script in addition to her directing duties. She previously helmed 2014’s “Life Partners,” a dramedy about a co-dependent friendship starring Gillian Jacobs (“Love”) and Leighton Meester (“Gossip Girl”).

When we asked Fogel her advice for other women directors, she said, “Have confidence in your own voice, be entrepreneurial, and take big risks with the knowledge that, by default of being a woman, people are going to advise you to be conservative, play it safe, make sure everyone likes you, and constantly question whether or not you’re ready to be in charge.”

“It’s rarely talked about as a gender thing, and it’s often subconscious, but people are generally less comfortable entrusting executive power — and finances — to women, and I think it’s easy as a female director to sense their doubt and psych yourself out,” she observed. “Which only perpetuates the cycle and proves their point.”

McKinnon stars in another hotly anticipated woman-directed comedy, Lucia Aniello’s “Rough Night.” The “SNL” star, Scarlett Johansson, Zoë Kravitz (“Big Little Lies”), Ilana Glazer (“Broad City”), and Jillian Bell (“Workaholics”) play former college friends who reunite for a bachelorette party, but the evening takes an unexpectedly dark turn when an overeager attempt to mount a male stripper leads to his death. The film opens June 16.

Kunis was most recently seen in “Bad Moms” alongside Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn. The female-led ensemble comedy made nearly $180 million worldwide and was made for $20 million. A sequel is in the works.

While promoting “Bad Moms,” Kunis addressed the unfair expectations placed on films with female protagonists in an interview for ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers.” She said, “The hardest part about all of this is when a movie that is starring women does well, everyone goes, ‘Wow, that’s amazing.’ … But when it goes bad, then everyone goes, ‘We knew it. We knew this was going to happen.’ A male-driven film, it doesn’t matter, whether it’s good or bad, no one comments on it,” Kunis explained. “It’s just either good or bad. With a female-driven film, it’s females. ‘Well this female succeeded, or this female failed.’ It’s going to have to change one day.”

Mila Kunis & Kate McKinnon in Talks for Susanna Fogel’s “The Spy Who Dumped Me” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
