Evidence of a slow news day, Bradley Cooper’s nose has dominated headlines. The actor/director, who is starring in the upcoming biopic about famed composer and Lydia Tár mentor Leonard Bernstein, has taken heat for the nose prosthetic featured prominently in the film’s newly released trailer. While many have voiced that they see the prosthetic as gratuitous and anti-Semitic, Bernstein’s own children released a statement detailing working with Cooper on the Steven Spielberg-produced film and described the love they have for their dad’s “nice, big nose” and that he would’ve been fine with it.
Meanwhile, Martin Scorsese, another producer on Maestro, is probably somewhere pinching the bridge of his own nose in disgust right now. That’s because Peacock has been uploading full episodes of the show Killing It, chopped up into 10-minute segments, to their official TikTok. Not only does this butcher the way television was intended to be consumed, but it adds one more thing for writers and actors to potentially worry about as they fast approach four months on the picket lines.
Luckily, as always, when you need a break from the headlines, Twitter hasn’t disappointed with another round of hysterical tweets, including a new “We Didn’t Start the Fire” verse, Jessica Chastain’s childhood diet and a meme account having an identity crisis.
