Vanessa Kirby Denies Reports She's about to Marry Tom Cruise: There's Zero Truth to It




Vanessa Kirby is not dating Tom Cruise and most certainly isn’t marrying him. In an interview she said:

“There’s literally zero truth in it. I’ve been in a relationship for two years! The rumors came out after I’d met Tom, once, in a roomful of people. We hadn’t started filming, and all of a sudden we’re getting married! It’s so bizarre.

SNL “Claire from HR” Lampoons Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Roy Moore



As Claire from HR, Cecily Strong quizzes Colin Jost on workplace romances (should you: “Inform someone at HR,” “lock her in a room and make her look at it” or “bully her out of the entire industry”?), dating 14 year olds (is it okay “when she’s 14 but smoking a cigarette,” when “14 but it’s Alabama” and “14 but you’re gay now so, hooray, how great”), and where your penis should be around colleagues (in your pants).



Tiffany Haddish also referenced Louis CK in her opening monologue by offering some helpful advice: “Listen fellas, listen. If you got your thing-thing out and she’s got all her clothes on, you’re wrong. You’re in the wrong. Wait until she takes her own clothes off, then pull your thing-thing out.”

George Takei blamed Russian bots for sexual assault allegations



In two tweets from today that are now deleted, George Takei seemed to believe that Russian bots were targeting him with the sexual assault allegations in order to silence his activism.

The tweets read:

"A friend sent me this. It is a chart of what Russian bots have been doing to amplify stories containing the allegations against me. It's clear they want to cow me into silence, but do not fear, friends. I won't succumb to that. Source: http://dashboard.securingdemocracy.org https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DOckpPiW0AAOkjz.jpg"

"By way of background, when I criticized Putin's anti-LGBT policies publicly, Russians bots attacked my FB page relentlessly, and we had to develop special security measures and ban all traffic from within the Russian Federation and the Ukraine. I am accustomed to their practices."

Gallagher Brother Feud Heats Up, Gets Weird

Former Oasis bandmates, Liam and Noel Gallagher, are both currently promoting new solo music. It is the first time the brothers are promoting solo work at the
same time. This has, of course, resulted in newly increased interest in their long-standing brotherly feud and the last few weeks have gotten a bit weird:


1. Noel calls Liam fans "parka monkeys" - Liam fans adopt the moniker
On October 22, Noel took to instagram to post a live version of his new song, Holy Mountain. The song received mixed reviews upon release from Oasis fans. Noel seems to largely blame the bad reviews on Liam's fanbase and referred to those fans as "parka monkeys" (Liam is known for his love of jackets).

Instagram caption: themightyi And to think..The Parka Monkeys are not having it!!..🤣😂🤣😂
São Paulo knows.
✌🏽


The nickname appears to have stuck since Noel has gone on to say in interviews that he wants to get rid of the "parka monkeys" with his new sound:

“The parka monkeys are going to be like, ‘a fucking French bird on a track? No mate, not having it. It’s not rock n’ roll’. Well no, it isn’t. Who’s saying it is?”


Liam and his fans have since decided to adopt the term with both Liam referring to his fans as parka monkeys and the fans referring to themselves as parka monkeys.

'All the Money in the World' re-casting will cost millions



Director Ridley Scott reportedly made the decision to re-cast Kevin Spacey's character, and has tapped Christopher Plummer for the role of J. Paul Getty.

  • Re-shoots will take 8-10 day and will add more than $10 million to the budget.

  • Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg both signed off on the decision to re-cast Spacey and are both relatively available--Williams is shooting 'Venom' which is produced by the distributor of 'All the Money in the World', Sony. Wahlberg is on the press circuit for Daddy's Home 2.

  • Plummer will likely get $250,000-$400,00 (OP note: that's it?)

  • Insurance will likely not cover these costs.

  • Awards chances may also be jeopardized as screeners are typically made available by early November, but the studio is hoping that getting them ready by mid-December will still give voters the chance to watch the screener.

  • The MPAA also typically requires 28 days to review a film and assign a rating, but they have assured the studio that they will expedite the process.

ONTD Original: Reminder of allegations of Eminem having sex with 15-year-old fan & DV incident



Since 2K17 is the year of taking down sexual predators, I thought I would call attention to a few allegations made against the music industry's biggest misogynist, Eminem. These accusations are rarely talked about, so it's worth discussing them. Thanks to dontcountmeout6 for the heads up on the statutory rape story.

Eminem allegedly repeatedly had sex with 15-year-old fan named Agnes

Eminem's former bodyguard Byron "Big-Naz" Williams published a tell-all called Shady Bizzness in 2000, where he wrote about his time working for the rapper from May-December 1999. One section of the book gives details of Eminem's sexual relations with a 15-year-old fan from Sweden.

Eminem was investigated for domestic violence against 13-year-old niece/adopted daughter in 2006

On September 24, 2006, Eminem flew off the handle because his 13-year-old niece, Alaina Mathers, hung up on him. They had apparently been having a conversation about her school clothes and she hung up when she he told her something she didn't want to hear.

He then showed up at her house and allegedly yelled, "I'll kill you."

Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen and Female Empowerment

Having either of the Olsen twins comment on anything to do with where they stand in terms of politics or social issues is a rarity, to say the least. The mystery that surrounds them puts their fans in the position to merely speculate on the status of their psyche—the only possible clues being what we were exposed to while they were child stars, many years ago.

Now, at age 31, the Olsens are a legitimate fashion force, and Coveteur was invited a peak at something we, as an audience, have not seen in quite some time: a list of Mary-Kate and Ashley favourites.



A 32-page, 8x10" hardcover book from 1993 titled, Hillary Rodham Clinton, could be spotted on a surface within the Elizabeth and James store in Los Angeles' The Grove. Nearby on the same table; an XS tee that reads DREAMER and a pink pin large enough to hold the message, never underestimate the power of a woman.

"We found the book online along with the vintage pins. We gravitate towards anything with positive messages that support women and female empowerment," says Mary-Kate.

A set of pencils can be spotted not too far away as well, with a variety of quotes that range from, "FRESH OUT OF FUCKS" to "I'M KIND OF A BIG DEAL", the sisters reveal their favourite pencil sayings...

Ashley: "My favorite is DO YOUR BEST."
Mary-Kate: "Mine is GOOD VIBES ONLY."

Celebrities ignore sexual assault scandals at the Governors Awards



With a torrent of sexual assault scandals hitting Hollywood, you might think that celebrities wouldn't be feeling up to celebrating themselves. You'd be wrong.

Celebrities flocked to the Governors Awards, which kicked off awards season, and solemnly ignored the issue of sexual abuse. None of the presenters mentioned it (including new Academy presidente John Bailey, Steven Spielberg, Ava Duvernay, Jessica Chastain and Angelina Jolie). In fact, Dustin Hoffman was a presenter, and he was greeted "with enthusiastic applause" by the celebrity attendees, despite his own sexual harassment allegations by two different women (which prompted him to issue a statement apologizing for anything "he might have" done).

At the red carpet, Andrew Garfield told USA Today that the night was about celebrating the honorary Oscars recipients, and that the event "is isolated from the horrific allegations that are occurring daily in our industry and all industries where there are abuses of power".

Hollywood Men on Louis C.K.

The vast majority of men in Hollywood (and especially men in comedy) have been pretty quiet about Louis C.K., even after this shitty “apology.” I’ve gathered tweets from the few who have condemned him and/or lauded the victims who came forward, plus Marc Maron and Damon Wayans Jr who ain’t shit.

ONTD Original: Let's Go Gothic!


ONTD_gothic_novels



The Gothic genre was born when Horace Walpole penned the 1764 novel, The Castle of Otranto. His novel contains all the elements that went on to define the genre, such as the most obvious - a setting in a castle.

Last year I did a Gothic reading challenge and ranked the books according to 10 Gothic elements on the Walpole-O-Meter*:

[Spoiler (click to open)]
1. Setting Is there an old or ruined castle or mansion? Are there secret hiding places? Is the weather terrible?

2. Suspense Mystery or fear is essential. The Gothic novel is all about #mood.

3. Supernatural or inexplicable Events Ghosts. Strange noises, like clanking chains. Candles suddenly blowing out.

4. High, Overwrought Emotion The characters are especially emotional. Angry. Crying. Lots of screaming.

5. A Woman in Distress Fainting almost always will occur!

6. A Powerful, Tyrannical Male The women characters are a target to the man's intimidation or physical threats.

7. A Hero The brooding, sexy character. There will probably be a question first of whether he can be trusted.

8. Vocabulary Words like: "Diabolical"; "Hastened"; "Shrieks"; "Wretched"; "Wrath"; "Darkness".You get the gist.



The rules of the challenge were to read a book per task, then rank each book accordingly:

1 - 2 elements = Not a Gothic
3 - 5 elements = Wannabe Gothic
6 - 8 elements = Walpole Approved!

So, let's light those fireplaces, put on a moody tune and Go Gothic!?

How is it episode 9 and the plot is barely getting started!? Waiting on the inevitable moment of Marsali calling her Claire instead of hoor. I was thinking cholera and not typhoid fever. Was it a common inoculation in the 20th century? I don't know if I've ever been vaccinated? Is it part of childhood vaccinations? I know you get it if you're going travelling to certain places. Somehow I had a feeling Jamie wouldn't be happy with them in 2 different places.......but if they're both headed to Jamaica....idk, is it that big of a deal? Or is it that she's a woman and intrinsically has no power?

Daniel Franzese Accuses Bijou Phillips of Body Shaming, Homophobia, and Physical Assault



Most of ONTD may know Daniel Franzese best for his role in Mean Girls, but his first role was in Larry Clark’s Bully. He was inspired by Ellen Page sharing the abuse she suffered at the hands of Brett Ratner and decided to share his own story. Daniel Franzese identifies as queer, was not out yet, and was worried how it would affect his career. Bijou Phillips abused him on set, demanding to know if he was gay and subsequently making fun of his sexual orientation and body. He also says she kicked him very hard in the back of the head, possibly giving him a concussion. He describes the experience as “the most stressful experience of my life on or off set” that resulted in “a PTSD that had me stay closeted for a long time.”

FYI she is now a scientologist and is married to Danny Masterson, who has been accused of rape by four separate women.
