Chris Hemsworth Tells His Favourite 'Thor' Joke - The Graham Norton Show

Vanity Fair Article on CAA

Vanity Fair recently adapted segments from the upcoming book Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood's Creative Artists Agency by Andrew Miller. From the publisher, "In 1975, five young employees of a sclerotic William Morris agency left to start their own, strikingly innovative talent agency. In the years to come, Creative Artists Agency would vault from its origins in a tiny office on the last block of Beverly Hills to become the largest, most imperial, groundbreaking, and star-studded agency Hollywood has ever seen—a company whose tentacles now spread throughout the world of movies, music, television, technology, advertising, sports, and investment banking far more than previously imagined. Powerhouse is the fascinating, no-holds-barred saga of that hot-blooded ascent. " The excerpt on Vanity Fair is fascinating; read it here.

Erika Christensen Is Pregnant

E! News reports that actress and Scientologist Erika Christensen, 33, and her husband Cole Maness, 38, are expecting their first child together. Erika posted a picture on Instagram recently to announce that she is seven months along, and expecting a girl. 

Drew Barrymore Getting Divorced

Damn, I was hoping this one would last. People reports that Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman are planning to divorce after nearly four years of marriage. Sources list the following as the reasons behind the split: "They've had marriage issues for a while. There was tension over where to live." Apparently Barrymore has wanted to relocate the family to Los Angeles, while Kopelman is firmly planted in New York City. The couple are parents to daughters Olive, 3, and Frankie, 1. This will be the third divorce for Drew; she was previously married to Jeremy Thomas and Tom Green.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - The Truth About Her Double Ds

There’s a rumor going around that this very wealthy blonde multi-hyphenate recently had breast enhancement surgery.

No. She did not.

"She’s never had implants! Her breast size has varied a little over the years depending on her weight. They were huge when she was pregnant. Right now they are exactly the same size they were ten years ago. She’s lost some weight recently and had a little work done to reduce her midsection, so they just look bigger by comparison! She’s actually really happy with her body right now."

There you go. Now you can use this info to duke it out with your friends who swear that she got implants!

Kardashian Korner

E! News reports that Kanye West has found the perfect person to resurrect his crumbling empire - Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun! The pair have been working together for about a month, but a formal agreement is not yet in place. A source states, "He loves how Scooter's clients are handled, so Kanye is working with him quietly now." Hmmm....handled in the same way that Travolta likes getting handled by a male massuer?


Ariana Grande Talks Near Death Experience

Ariana Grande recently appeared on Alan Carr's chat show Chatty Man, where she opened up about her near death experience. E! News reprints her remarks as follows:

"Opening night of my Honeymoon tour I almost died. For real, I'm not exaggerating. I usually exaggerate, but I'm not. You know how they have those toaster things where people come up from the stage and you pop up? Something happened with mine and I was singing the beginning of 'Love Me Harder' and I was going up on the thing, and long story short, the thing I was standing on had this wooden plank and it snapped! The thing was still going up so I was being pushed against the stage, and it was some Indiana Jones shit, and it was really scary. I had to Superman myself out of the thing, and my guitar guy helped me get out, and then I went on stage a different way. It was really scary...Yes, yes! I was Carrie Fisher in the trash compactor."


The Gossip Life Blind Item - Struggle With the Spouses

A lot of speculation about a power struggle between the scenes at WWE right now between two A-list people, and by extension their spouses. Although control of the company was once believed to be bestowed to just one of them, its future is now up in the air.

Nick Jonas Did a Reddit AMA

Nick Jonas recently sat down for a Reddit AMA. Here are some of the highlights:

On ex Miley Cyrus:
"It’s been a while since I spoke to Miley, but I think that the persona is awesome and I think that she is living proof that you can continue to evolve as an artist and a creator. And I'm a huge Woody Allen fan, so I'm looking forward to seeing the show that she's doing with him."

On the South Park episode where Mickey beat the shit out of the Jonas Brothers and made them wear purity rings:
"When it first came out I didn't think it was funny to be honest, but probably because I was actually living all of that in real time and so it just made it harder to come and live your life as a young person and have all that going on. But years later and once the purity rings were no longer around, it was very funny to me and I've actually watched the episode a few times."

On the most challenging and rewarding parts of songwriting:
"I think the most challenging aspect is getting the right group of people together to collaborate, in terms of nailing that chemistry and overall goal for the day. The most rewarding? There's no better feeling than writing a song and people connecting to it and then getting on stage performing it and hearing them sing it all back to you. It's just one of the best feelings in the world."

On whether or not he was serious about that whole Purity Ring thing:
"I'd like to start by saying this: I came from an incredibly religious home, growing up my dad was a pastor, and much like The First Family or people in front of the public eye, we were highly scrutinized as a family within the church and looked at as, well I guess you would call an example of what that family image should be. So long before our career started in music, that was what we were dealing with.
There was a person in the church who at one point demanded that all the kids in the youth group put these purity rings on and make this commitment, so without a full understanding of what we were stepping into, we all made this commitment.
But as you do, you grow up, you live life, you gain some world perspective and you develop your own views and opinions as it relates to faith, as it relates to sex, and everything that falls under the bounds of what your parents teach you and what comes from religion and you get to make your own choices.
So I started making my own choices, fell in love with somebody, made the choice to have sex with them, and from that point on it was about me being a man and being okay with my choices. And then it related to my art and people's view of me and the public eye.
I think it's always about being comfortable and confident in who you are. I've got a lot of perspective and real care about sex from those days and specifically because people were watching us, because it was such a strange thing to a lot of people to wear these purity rings especially as young men in a pop boy band. But I think when I'm looking back on it, although it was challenging to live with that, to be seen and have that attached to our name was very tough. I think it was a good thing. It gave me a really good perspective to where as now my main thing is about being okay with who I am as a man and the choices I've made, and I think everyone should have a good and solid conversation with either their parents or loved ones about sex and about what they want to do with their life, because it shouldn't be taboo. It's a big part of who we are and what makes us human, and if we can't address these things head on, then I think that it can really be challenging."

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Wrestling Superstar

The reason this A-list wrestling superstar, unlike nearly everyone of the era, was never employed back by the WWE was because he had a relationship with someone VERY close to the owner of the company, Vince McMahon. The girl in question was under-age at the time and the A-list wrestling superstar took her virginity.

The Invitation Official Trailer #1 (2016) - Liam Hemsworth, Michiel Huisman Movie HD

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Stuck Between Two Options

This A-list director is in the midst of deciding on his next picture. He’s stuck between two options: 1. A genre that he’s never done before that’ll really surprise people. 2. A sequel to a much loved franchise. Either way, it’s going to be very interesting for film fans.


Who is the director?

Kardashian Korner

(Douche)Lord Disick recently called in to Australia's Kylie & Jackie O radio show, where he had this to say, as reprinted by Us Weekly:

On #SockMogul Rob Kardashian:
“Things are difficult sometimes, especially when you become in the spotlight very quickly overnight. Your whole life changes very quickly. He was just getting out of college, and then he became famous quickly, and I think it was a lot for him to handle. I don’t think that was the path he wanted to be on, and he just got caught in the middle of it. He’s one of the greatest guys I know. He’s got a good heart, and he’s just an amazing guy all round...He’s doing great — he’s doing actually unbelievable. He had to take some time off, and I think he was a little down-and-out, but he’s doing a lot better, and I think he’s very happy.”

On Kourtney:
"She's like my best friend. I love her to the day I die...I don't think anything is ever simple. We are trying to make the best of it and life goes on. Things aren't easy, [but] we are doing very well right now, and I'm just happy we are able to be on good terms at the end of the day...I never thought a lot of things were going to happen the way they did. So I don't rule anything out. I don't have plans in my mind of what's going to happen so, you know, if things are meant to be they will be."

In other Kardashian news, looks like Lammy's back on the sauce. Having a stroke would be rock bottom for some people, but not Lamar Odom. He must have watched Kim's old music video, and it drove him to drink. Seriously though, I hope he gets clean stat.


Michael Stipe: The Man Who Sold the World

Kate Upton Talks Dogs

Kate Upton is hosting the Grand Slam Adoption event in Lakeland, Florida. E! News recently caught up with Upton, where she had this to say of adopting dogs:


"I would love to have 10 dogs. (Boyfriend) Justin [Verlander] is definitely an animal lover but he is definitely holding me back from my 10 dogs. He is putting a three-dog limit on it I'm a huge animal lover and I've always been. I was raised with dogs and horses and they were a huge part of my life. So getting in and supporting a cause for adopting dogs and bringing awareness to how great shelter dogs are and how important animals are to bringing people together, for happiness and for healing, it was an obvious choice for me. This event is really awesome because the dogs enjoy running around and meeting new people and getting out of the shelter for a little bit."


Emily Blunt Talks Pregnancy The Second Time Around

Emily Blunt recently sat down for an interview with C Magazine, where she talked about pregnancy the second time around (her first child, daughter Hazel, is 2). The magazine quotes her as follows:


“The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world because you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CDs. During this one I forget that I’m even pregnant. I’m hoisting my 2-year-old around!"

On filming The Girl on the Train while pregnant:
"It was actually more physical than I realized, which worried me a little, but I wasn’t telling anyone until a little later on. I told a couple of people like [co-star] Justin Theroux pretty early because he and I were doing some of the physical stuff together. He’s my friend, and I think he knew anyway—you know how friends just have a feeling.”

On playing villains:
“You’d be surprised by how much I enjoyed [playing an evil queen] and how easy it was to be this person, which is worrying. She’s not just this rampaging villain. She’s actually someone who, as delusional as she is, is thinking she’s doing the right thing—and that was exciting to me.” 

On husband John Krasinski, and the possibility of working with him:
“It’s like [having] an immediate, deeper understanding of what each other is going through. It’s sort of been necessary to both of us to have a confidant who understands your perspective, your position...I think we would prefer it to be something where we’re not married or boyfriend and girlfriend. Our chemistry is not up for public consumption. We’d like to do a play. That would be cool.”


Celebrity Real Estate - Jane Rosenthal Edition

Producer Jane Rosenthal, who co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert DeNiro and her ex-husband Craig Hatkoff, has listed her spacious co-op apartment at the Dakota for $39 million. The 7,500 square foot abode features five bedrooms, six bathrooms, two wood burning fireplaces, and 165 feet of Central Park frontage. See pictures of the property at Variety.

Former Superman Dean Cain Critiques Batman vs Superman

The Hollywood Reporter had the great idea of calling up former Superman Dean Cain and asking him what he thought about Batman vs. Superman. If you click the Hollywood Reporter link, there are spoilers in the original interview, but I have removed them below. Here's what he had to say:


"My son and I went to see it...The movie obviously was so well made; the effects were incredible. It was too long, though, and I admit, I dozed off a tiny bit but maybe that's because I was tired after a lot of traveling. Ben was great as Batman and Henry is a very good Superman. This incarnation is so dark compared to the lightness of Superman I've grown to know and love, as seen in the two versions that I grew up with — Christopher Reeves and myself. That's the only difference to me. (This movie) inhabits a dark world and Superman is such an alien in that world. Wonder Woman is really easy on the eyes, and I love that they introduced the other guys, the Justice League, because those stories are very cool. I loved how they did that."

What's your take on Henry Cavill as Superman? And his suit?
"The suit looks fantastic; the suit is amazing! I would call him lucky to get that suit instead of the Lycra that I had. Henry is a big, physical guy, and he looks “super" if you will (laughs). I've met him before and he has that Superman special something. This is a different incarnation, as I've mentioned. My favorite of all time will always be Christopher Reeves. He'll always be Superman in my eyes."

Superman has a rough go in this film. What was that like to watch?
"It's odd for me to watch that because of that incredible strength that he possesses. Whenever I played him, I played Superman as if I had a secret that nobody else knew. That secret is that you could always win. It seemed that Superman didn't have that in this film. That was different for me. I don't like seeing him get kicked around so hard. But what I did like a lot is that Superman was so heroic in this film. That is definitely in tune with the Superman that I know and love."


TV Show Roundup 3/31/16

Casting News:
Former Buffy star Anthony Stewart Head will star on Freeform's new series Guilt along with his daughter, Daisy Head. The Hollywood Reporter announces that the show has an Amanda Knox theme.

New Shows:
The Hollywood Reporter announces that NBC will air a live version of A Few Good Men, airing in 2017. The live show will be written by Aaron Sorkin, who also wrote the original stage play and movie. 

Martin Sheen wants to prove to you that OJ is Innocent, so that's what he named his new show, to air on the ID Channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I mean, isn't it enough that he was found not guilty even though we all kind of know that he did it? 

Programming Note:
Peter Dinklage will host Saturday Night Live on NBC this weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Margot Robbie Packs Quite a Punch

The Legend of Tarzan director David Yates recently sat down for an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where he had this to say of leading lady Margot Robbie:


“If you enter the jungle with anybody, you want to go with Margot Robbie. She’s practical, and she’s smart, and she’s resourceful. And she can take care of herself. It was very important that we didn’t want it to feel archaic or dated, where it’s like, tough guy has to save the poor girl. You have to feel that she’s strong and independent, and when you cast Margot, you’ll definitely get that...They’re doing this love scene together, and I said [to Robbie], ‘Just slap Alex [SkarsgΓ₯rd] while you’re making love, just kind of give him a punch.’ It was sort of an earthy, sensual moment of her enjoying sex with Alex, and the only bruise he picked up during the entire shoot was probably that punch from Margot. Which says a lot about her feistiness.”


David Hasselhoff Talks Pamela Anderson's Sex Tape

Jenny McCarthy thought it would be a great idea to ask David Hasselhoff if he had seen Pamela Anderson's sex tape when he stopped by her Sirius XM show recently. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by E! News:


"No. No! Because I knew her. It was like watching my freaking sister. No I couldn't. Did you watch it?...Oh my god. You know what… if you want to beat off to something, you should beat off to Hoff the Record. Okay! Because you know me. I'm not like your brother." 


Nick Young Cheated on Iggy Azalea

So remember when rapper Iggy Azalea postponed her wedding to LA Laker Nick Young last week? She must have caught wind of his cheating. I think it's a safe bet to say the wedding is completely off at this point. People reports that Young was caught on tape talking to fellow Laker D'Angelo Russell about cheating on Azalea. So now all the Lakers are mad at...D'Angelo Russell. How does that work? Whatever. I have almost no interest in basketball, and even less interest in seeing another Iggy Azalea video, so here's PONPONPON instead to start your day. You're welcome!

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Secret Marriage

Half of this couple is into singing. Half of this couple is into acting. They are both REALLY into each other.

There’s a rumor going around that they are secretly married.

No.

Not yet.

However, the relationship is going well and they are moving towards marriage!

We hear that she has made it clear to him that she is ready to get married. NOW. She is like an impulsive teenager that way. (Remember her last impetuous marriage? Disaster!)

He is a bit more pragmatic, but he really does love her, so there is a good chance they will get engaged this year. In the meantime, she is not above doing the fake ring tease to get people talking.

Charlize Theron Talks Ghosting

Charlize Theron recently sat down for an interview with WSJ magazine, where she had this to say about Sean Penn:


“We were very, very new in a relationship. The stories saying that Sean was going to adopt Jackson and all of that were not true. It’s not something that happens in 18 months. You can’t do that to a child. So there was an understanding that I was a single mom with a very young boy who I had to put in a situation where he understood that Mommy dates but that he does not have a father, you know what I mean? You have to be very careful and very honest about that stuff. And Sean was great with all of that.


And in my honesty about wanting to have more kids, there was an understanding that a relationship had to go somewhere before it was going to be—what you hope for, which ultimately did not happen. I couldn’t foresee that, but that stuff takes time, and I think it’s my responsibility as a mother to protect my child from that. And so we had a very clear understanding. 

He knew that I was thinking about filing for another adoption but that we weren’t filing together. My publicist’s going to kill me; I’m already saying too much...There is this need to sensationalize things. When you leave a relationship there has to be some fucking crazy story or some crazy drama. And the fucking ghosting thing, like literally I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast. We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”

Avicii Is Retiring From Touring...For Now

Swedish DJ Avicii, 26, is retiring from touring. He released the following statement on his website, as reprinted by Us Weekly:


“Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way. It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while. My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I’m grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.

I will however never let go of music — I will continue to speak to my fans through it. But I’ve decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let’s make them go out with a bang!...One part of me can never say never, I could be back … but I won’t be right back."


William Shatner Sued by Alleged Son

People reports that Peter Sloan, 59, a radio DJ, thinks that William Shatner is his biological father, so is suing him for $170 million - $30 million in compensatory damages, $90 million in punitive damages, and $50 million for pain and suffering. Yeah, suing your potential father for a large sum of money isn't exactly starting a relationship off on the right foot. Shatner has denied that he is the father. Shatner's lawyer has already sent this dude (who likes to tell people he's Peter Shatner) the following letter back in 2011: "There have been many people over the years who have claimed to be his children or other relatives. He is an incredibly busy, eighty year-old man, and is not interested in spending time discussing this issue with you or any such individuals." Sounds like dude needs to get a new hobby.


Celebrity Real Estate - Alan Ball Edition

Alan Ball and Peter Macdissi have listed their Hollywood Hills home for sale for $8.5 million. The 1.15 acre property features a main house of 6,000 square feet that contains six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and Quentin Tarantino as your next-door neighbor. See pictures of the property at Variety.

Sean Avery Fired His Mother-In-Law

Page Six reports that retired New York Ranger Sean Avery convinced wife Hilary Rhoda to fire her mother Marianne, who had been acting as her manager. Marianne tried to get Hilary to insist on a prenup, but Sean convinced Hilary to dump Marianne as her manager, and Marianne was disinvited to the couple's October nuptials. A source close to Marianne states, "Marianne was trying to protect her daughter’s substantial assets. Sean got Marianne fired, and now he’s in charge. He controls all the people working for Hilary." They go on to allege that Sean convinced Hilary to move her money from conservative real estate investments to a private management group run by a guy who played junior hockey with Sean. When Page Six reached out for a comment, Hilary's rep responded as follows: "Someone of Hilary’s stature does not comment on personal or legal matters in the tabloids.” Oh, snap!


Dancing With the Stars Pro Allison Holker Is a Mom Again

Dancing With the Stars pro Allison Holker, 28, and husband Stephen "tWitch" Boss, 33, have welcomed their first child together. Son Maddox Laurel Boss was born on Sunday. This is the first child for Boss; Holker has daughter Weslie, 7, from a previous relationship. The couple released the following statement to People“[Maddox’s birth] was truly an unforgettable moment and we are grateful to everyone that shared in the experience and made it so monumental. Our family feels full! Maddox already has the best big sister Weslie, they have already bonded and share a truly beautiful love.”

Patty Duke Has Passed Away

It was announced here yesterday when it happened, but she deserves a full write up. Oscar-winning actress Patty Duke passed away at the age of 69 from complications of a ruptured intestine. At the age of 12, she starred as Helen Keller on Broadway in the original production of The Miracle Worker with Anne Bancroft. Three years later, she reprised her role onscreen, and won an Academy Award for best supporting actress. The following year, The Patty Duke show arrived on ABC, and aired for the next four years. In addition to acting, she was an advocate for mental health, after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder. On her website, she is quoted as follows: "I've survived. I've beaten my own bad system and on some days, on most days, that feels like a miracle."

She is survived by husband Michael Pearce, brother Raymond, sons Sean Astin, Mackenzie Astin, and Kevin Pearce, stepdaughter Charlene Gibson, and six grandchildren. Her family released the following statement: "This morning, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, matriarch and the exquisite artist, humanitarian, and champion for mental health, Anna PATTY DUKE Pearce, closed her eyes, quieted her pain and ascended to a beautiful place. We celebrate the infinite love and compassion she shared through her work and throughout her life. Her work endures..." Read her full obituary at the New York Times.

Son Sean Astin has set up a Crowdrise Page to establish the Patty Duke Mental Health Project: "Before her passing, before the suffering became too great, we talked about how the core mission of her mental health work might continue beyond her life. This initiative will fuel a multi-level approach to achieving results for those suffering with mental illness, and for their families and communities. Public awareness campaigns, lobbying efforts, and supporting a multitude of mental health programs big and small will be organized, prioritized and vigorously pursued. The funds raised here will establish the Patty Duke Mental Health Initiative: the legal expenses, the formation of a board of directors, the establishing of a location, the hiring of an experienced executive director to manage professional fundraising, initial staffing and all of the costs associated with launching an endeavor of this sort."

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Hiding the Baby

You may have seen this famous actress walking around wearing baggier clothes than usual, strategically covering up her stomach with various props. Is she pregnant?

YES! Definitely.

Don’t expect an announcement until well after the first trimester, though!

"She is going to hide the bump until she really pops, which she’s thinking will be around month five or six. In the meantime, she totally cool about smiling and lying about it and saying that she’s just put on a couple of pounds.

Only a few very close friends know right now and she has to lie to everyone else. She is telling people that her schedule is too jam-packed to have a baby right now.

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Save the Film Series

Several plans are in the works to save this film series. The studio executives feel as if they’ve tried so hard to get it off the ground, only for continuous failure or flops. Although they expect to make bank on their latest shot, the reviews are humiliating, especially in comparison to their rivals

A plan is to offer one of their A-list actors the opportunity to take over as the creative head of the series, but several of the lower executives believe he can’t handle the pressure right now and they should stick with their current creative head. Another plan is to alter the dark tone to a lighter one.

It’s pure chaos at this studio right now.

Melissa Etheridge Talks Sperm

Melissa Etheridge recently sat down for an interview with Australia's Studio 10 talk show, where she had this to say about choosing a sperm donor, as reprinted by E! News:

"Well actually, because [Brad Pitt] was such a good friend of mine and we did consider it and yet, I looked and I saw how badly we wanted children and I thought, ‘I don't want to share this with someone who really, badly wants children because my children don't need another parent—they have two. Of course now my teenagers are like, ‘I could have had Brad Pitt as my dad!' My son said, ‘I could've been amazingly handsome!'...It's one of the reasons why David Crosby and his wife are so perfect—because they already had children. They were looking to do this as a gift. And my children are lovely and gorgeous anyway."

Radar Online Blind Item - Happy Endings

In a bombshell claim, a male massage therapist named Edward, whose full identity is being withheld, told RadarOnline.com he arranged rubdowns that included a sexual “happy ending” for John Travolta and another top A-list married male star

Edward believes the gay encounters will rock two marriages — Travolta’s to former model Kelly Preston and the other between the unnamed former Oscar contender, whom Radar has chosen not to name, and a woman well known in the entertainment industry.

Edward helps run a sex service called “Man 2 Man Massage,” which he described as “a roving gang of unlicensed massage therapists who specialize in ‘gay’ sexual favors. All the men who use the service realize that they are going to get a lot more than a massage!”

The unnamed star’s shocking encounter took place at Miami’s Four Seasons in 2011. Radar gave the masseur a polygraph test about that session and the man passed.

According to the masseur, “since [the star] didn’t resist, the subject proceeded to masturbate him and then performed oral sex on him. I had gay sex with him and he was very comfortable with it.”

Though reps for both stars vehemently denied the claims in this story, Edward claimed to Radar that he’s also arranged massages for 62-year-old Travolta, whose marriage to Preston, 53, has been repeatedly rocked by reports of Travolta’s gay double life.


In May 2012, two male masseurs filed sexual battery suits against Travolta in federal court. Travolta’s attorney vehemently denied the claims, but more men came forward with similar accusations.
