Life & Style
Cover: Brad Pitt is up to his old tricks: romancing co-stars on set — specifically, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood star Margot Robbie. Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, she’s not having it. Instead, she’s keen to stay married to her husband, some no-name dude she calls “the best looking guy in London.” I’m confused. Does she not know Idris Elba and Tom Hardy are from London?
Petty Woman: Speaking of no-name husbands, Julia Roberts is so desperate to keep her marriage to whatsisface from falling apart that she hauled her kids to Canada to be with him while he was working. And not just any part of Canada — Winnipeg! Must be true love.
Cover: The Queen is tossing aside Prince Charles in favour of Duchess Catherine, whom she would prefer to be queen. Sounds legit. Ol’ Chaz is fine with it, because being chosen as the next royal ruler apparently means hours of gruelling lessons from the monarch herself. Liz is probably calling Kate “Spaghetti Arms,” yelling at her to hold the frame and telling her she’s not ready to do the big lift. And how is Will learning to be king? Um… polo?
Hot properties: The boys of One Direction are all having property problems. Zayn, Harry and Louis can’t sell their places and Liam and Niall both live in fear that their mansions are … haunted. Probably by the ghosts of forgotten boy band members. Like Casper Specter from NSYNC and Spooky McGee of the Backstreet Boys.
Cover: This story about Hollywood divorces suggests we are officially in the summer tabloid doldroms. Guess what? The stars you think had messy divorces did! They do attempt to whet your appetite with an amuse bouche about somebody who stabbed his wife with a wine glass. But who?! (I’ll save you the trouble: Paul McCartney. Allegedly). The only real surprise here is that this list includes a Property Brother. Surprising only because I assumed the Property Brothers were, in fact, a couple.
Fad romance: Lady Gaga’s been making time with a new dude, which the mag alleges she hopes will make Bradley Cooper jealous. It likely will, but probably only because he wishes he could just date some dude.

Review: Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood is bold and brutal — and terrific
