Idris Elba Has A Pretty Simple Rule To Navigate Me Too In Hollywood

Idris Elba just made spot-on sense of what it means to man up in the Me Too era. Asked by The Sunday Times if it’s difficult to be a man in show business during a period of reckoning against predators and harassers that gained momentum last year, the British actor said simply: “It’s only difficult if you’re a man with something to hide.” The “Molly’s Game” star may not be the next James Bond, as some fans clamored for, but he’s getting a hero’s reception on Twitter for his comment. Shonda Rhimes, the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal,” sent her approval, as did former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, actress Rosanna Arquette and others. Elba’s response was similar to actress and Me Too activist Alyssa Milano, who said last week: “It’s not a hard time for men right now. It’s a hard time f...

Now Thomas Markle Is Calling Meghan Markle ‘Controlling’ But Not Rude

Thomas Markle is making himself the center of attention once again in an effort, he said, to reach out to his daughter Meghan Markle.  He confirmed in a new interview with “Good Morning Britain” that he still hasn’t met Prince Harry in person or had any contact with the couple since their wedding.  Despite the lack of contact, Thomas Markle said he has sent “hundreds” of letters and texts over several weeks and hopes that things change as the holidays are approaching.  “This can’t continue forever. People are saying I should be quiet about this and not speak — that if I don’t speak, they will speak to me,” he told co-hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.  Samir Hussein via Getty Images The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in London on Nov. 19. In a new interview with “Good Morning Britain,” her f...

Kylie Jenner Puts Herself Right In The Middle Of Kanye West’s Twitter Drama

Like many families around this time of year, the KarJenner clan is heading into the holidays on a high-speed train of drama that could derail at any moment.  But, thankfully, this Twitter-fueled locomotive may be back on track after Kanye West dragged Travis Scott, who has a daughter with sister-in-law Kylie Jenner, into his ongoing feud with Drake. West, in an explosive Twitter tirade last week, took issue with “sneak disses” on Scott’s hit song “Sicko Mode” featuring the Toronto-born Drake, in which they rap about preferring “checks over stripes.” The “checks” refer to the logo for Nike, which has deals with both Scott and Drake, and the stripes represent Adidas, which manufactures West’s Yeezy Boost sneakers.  “You sneak dissing on trav records and texting Kris talking bout how’s the fa...

Yael Stone Says Geoffrey Rush Spied On Her In Shower, Exposed Himself

“Orange Is The New Black” actress Yael Stone has accused Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush of sexual misconduct. Stone, who plays Lorna on the Netflix series, told The New York Times in a story published Sunday that Rush danced naked in front of her and spied on her in the shower while the two co-starred in an Australian production of “The Diary of a Madman” in 2010 and 2011. “I remember I looked up to see there was a small shaving mirror over the top of the partition between the showers and he was using it to look down at my naked body,” Stone said. Stone, 33, also accused fellow Australian Rush, 67, of sending explicit text messages. Rush, also noted for the films “Shine,” for which he won an Oscar, and “The King’s Speech,” told the Times the allegations “are incorrect and in some instances hav...

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Swings To The Top Of The Box Office

LOS ANGELES, Dec 16 (Variety.com) – “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” is the new box office king, collecting a solid $35.4 million during its first three days of release. That’s hardly the biggest opening for an animated film this year, but it does rank as the best start for a cartoon in the month of December. Illumination’s “Sing” previously held that title, debuting with $35 million in 2016. Another weekend release, Warner Bros.′ “The Mule,” snagged the No. 2 spot with $17 million. Clint Eastwood directed and stars in the R-rated crime drama about a nonagenarian who gets caught smuggling drugs for the cartel. “The Mule,” Eastwood’s first acting gig since 2012′s “Trouble With the Curve,” brought out a much older crowd. Moviegoers over the age of 35 accounted for 78 percent of audi...

Offset famously proposed to Cardi B in front of a live audience, but his onstage apology to his wife didn’t seem to go quite as well.

‘SNL’ Auditions Oscar Hosts To Replace Comedian Kevin Hart

The 91st Oscars airs in February but the award show is still without a host since Kevin Hart stepped down earlier this month. The move came after a handful of old tweets with homophobic comments and jokes from the comedian resurfaced. But “Saturday Night Live” is searching for his replacement, asking in an Oscar host audition sketch this weekend, “Who will risk everything for the chance to gain nothing?” Actor Chris Hemsworth (Matt Damon), comedian Hannah Gadsby (Aidy Bryant) and talk show host Michael Strahan (Kenan Thompson) all try out for the role. Kate McKinnon, surprising no one, does a spot-on impression of Michelle Wolf. Damon hosted this weekend, with musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson.

Pete Davidson Appears Briefly On ‘SNL’ After Troubling Instagram Post

Davidson, 25, introduced musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson, who were joined in a surprise performance by Sean Ono Lennon for John Lennon’s song “And So This Is Christmas.” Davidson’s quick intro may have been just enough to ease fans’ worries Davidson also appeared as “Bohemian Rhapsody” star Rami Malek in a sketch about possible Oscar hosts, but that was pre-taped. Davidson, who suffers from borderline personality disorder, which he has referred to in the program, posted a screenshot of a note Saturday saying that he did not “want to be on this earth anymore” and was not sure “how much longer” he could be. Lt. Paul Ng of the New York Police Department told USA Today on Saturday that police did a “wellness check and made contact” with Davidson following his post. He was reportedly...

Host Matt Damon Honors ‘SNL’ And Late Father With Emotional Tribute On Holiday Show

Actor Matt Damon was funny — and emotional — when he recalled trying to stay up late with his brother when they were boys to watch “Saturday Night Live” with their dad. This time, the “SNL” host — who last helmed the show 16 years ago — said his own four kids were staying up late to watch him. He quipped that his 8-year-old daughter first wanted to know who was hosting — and which musical guest was performing (Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson with a surprise appearance by Sean Ono Lennon). Damon said his brother in Boston and his two boys were also watching. Damon choked up talking about watching the program with his dad, who died last year. “Growing up, my brother and I would go to my dad’s house every other weekend, and he told us if he could stay up until 1 a.m., we could watch Saturday Nigh...

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Draws Sold-Out Audience In New York

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an unlikely national rock star. But “The Notorious RBG” is now the subject of a second film about her this year — in theaters on Christmas Day. On Saturday evening, the 85-year-old Brooklyn native appeared in person, expressing love for her hometown of New York to a sold-out audience at the event organized by the Museum of the City of New York with WNET-TV. NPR legal correspondent Nina Totenberg led the question-and-answer session about Ginsburg’s quarter century on the Supreme Court, and about her life. Totenberg asked Ginsburg what she thought of a marital sex scene in the new biopic, “On the Basis of Sex,” with Felicity Jones playing the young Ginsburg. It explores how her early legal battles changed the world for women. ...

‘SNL’ Imagines World Without President Trump In ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ Spoof

“Saturday Night Live” cooked up the perfect holiday treat for viewers with a remake of the classic black-and-white film “It’s a Wonderful Life.” In this version Alec Baldwin’s besieged Donald Trump wishes he had never been president — and Clarence the angel (Kenan Thompson) grants him a fresh reality. He joins a holiday party where everyone is … smiling. Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon) won back her soul from the devil after Trump lost. Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) is rocking out as a DJ instead of a stiff. Brett Kavanaugh (Matt Damon) is not on the Supreme Court. “Me on the Supreme Court? With my temperament? Are you insane?” he asks Baldwin. He gives “Trump” a calendar as a holiday gift with “every day marked with a different beer.” Melania (Cecily Strong) is divorced and has lost her...
