Brendan Tighe, a former Scientologist said on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" that Scarlett Johansson had supposedly auditioned to be in a relationship with Tom Cruise.
In a statement to INSIDER, Johansson said: "The very idea of any person auditioning to be in a relationship is so demeaning; I refuse for anyone to spread the idea that I lack the integrity to choose my own relationships. Only a man aka Brendan Tighe would come up with a crazy story like that."

Post One Tree Hill James Lafferty felt the stigma of playing a heart throb on a teen soap, "I’ll hear through my reps that a casting director said, ‘We’re not seeing CW actors.’ That’s just something that some people say. They’ll just stop you at the gate. On top of that, I 100 percent had a hard time getting back into competing for roles again and auditioning. I had gotten so comfortable in this bubble of One Tree Hill". Currently James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti are taking their pilot "Everyone Is Doing Great" on the road to festivals and raising money to film a full season. There were rumblings of a One Tree Hill movie for Lifetime, Lafferty claims "I don’t know the plausibility of that ever happening. I also don’t know if any of the cast would ever say no to it. It’s just nobody’s ever brought it up in a real, practical way". The One Tree cast has had moved onto other acting endeavors Hilarie Burton became a new mom, Sophia Bush was in the Incredibles 2 and Chad Micheal Murray and his nipples starred in the timeless classics A Cinderella Story, Freaky Friday and Scream Queens.

Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night. It premieres September 4th at 10:00PM.
– Susanna Kaysen had written two well-reviewed books before starting Girl, Interrupted, a detached memoir about her 18 months at the McLean mental hospital in Boston (which was supposed to be just a few weeks) after attempting suicide, which she wanted to write from the perspective of “an anthropologist in the loony bin." Other famous people who spent time at McLean include Anne Sexton, Robert Nowell, Josh Nash, and Sylvia Plath. Her novel was rejected from various publishers before ending up on the desk of Julie Grau, head of an all-female "utopian little imprint” Riverhead housed in a brownstone.
– Grau said: "I presented it to Joni Evans”—the imprint’s director—“and said I wanted to buy it,” Grau also remembered. “We actually laugh about this now, but Joni said, ‘Oh, God, who would want to read a book about a girl in a mental institution?’ And I said, ‘Actually, I think a lot of people.’" Kaysen herself was surprised not just by her 1993 novel's success, or the eventual Ryder and Joile film, but also how many people it seemed to connect with.
– During the book tour, readers would line up to tell Kaysen about how much the novel meant to them, including lines like, “nobody else has ever said these things”, “I feel like I’m not alone," and “You wrote this book for me.” Many readers experienced an intense connection with the book and felt it was breaking a big stigma of silence when discussing mental illness. Other works that came after 1993 include Mary Karr’s The Liars’ Club (1995), Frank McCourt’s Angela’s Ashes (1996), and Kathryn Harrison’s The Kiss (1997), among others, with the rising popularity of personal stories focused on illness.
– Kaysen said about readers who came up to her, “I would say to myself, I didn’t. I don’t know you. I wasn’t try to reach you. What had spurred me to write was rage and a desire to dissect this world. And that didn’t seem to register for a lot of these people.” She said young women “would find my phone number somehow and ask to meet me. They would say they felt that I was them, or something like that.”
– Kaysen included scans of her medical records (with the help of her lawyer husband) from her time at the hospital in the novel, which also was structured in a non-linear format, helping the novel feel more real and post-modern. Kaysen said, “There was very little sense that this book was an artifact. People thought it was a transcription of reality or my brain. That’s an intrusive feeling to the person into whose brain you didn’t plug."
– Early on during the interview, Kaysen said, “I just feel like I didn’t even write this book. I guess whatever that book is, it just has nothing to do with me anymore, if it ever did. It has become something else, and it doesn’t belong to me. I shouldn’t have any commentary on it anymore.”
– Her book has two virtues, according to her: “It’s short, which is very important because people don’t have long attention spans, and it’s easy to read. It’s like a primer. There are no complicated words, no complicated sentences. I don’t think that it is totally straightforward, but it reads as if it is. And then there is this blankness and omission, a lot of omission. I don’t write about my family really. I don’t write that much about my internal state. It’s not about me.”
– Kaysen also said: “I feel lucky in a way. It doesn’t happen to that many people that you write something and lots and lots and lots of people find it extremely important and meaningful to them. People were loving a book I didn’t write, but maybe that doesn’t matter because they were able to see it the way they needed to see it. That’s a good thing.”
– More details in the full interview.

The year has been full of good gay moments, but not all rainbows and kittens, as more than a few breakups have happened. Not all, thank gawd. Shoutout to Ellen Page and Emma Portner. Lets take a look at the breakups that took us by surprise, some not, and some that a lot of us probably didn't even know existed.
Christian Siriano and Brad Walsh
Together for 11 years and married for two. "“Bit more than a month ago my husband and I separated. I was contacted by a writer for a website who somehow found out, so rather than let them break it, I’m telling you myself. It’s nobody’s business and I don’t want to discuss, but that’s what up,” Walsh said in an Instagram story.

The Expanse showrunner explains season 3 finale and previews season 4 https://t.co/kgefuI0voi— Entertainment Weekly (@EW) June 28, 2018
The Expanse showrunner, Naren Shankar talked to EW about season 3 finale and previewed season 4. Spoilers for book/season 4, some future book spoilers at the source. Highlights:
[Spoiler (click to open)]
* About the burst of energy when the Roci goes through the Ring gate- it's an ominous little harbinger of things to come. There is something inside that Ring space, in between the Ring gates, that's going to come into play at some point as the series goes on.
* About compressing book 3 to only 7 episodes- book 3 was challenging to adapt, because they have a whole new cast of characters, there's a lot of build up to getting them through the Ring, it's more philosophical than intellectual. Ending at the end of book 3 was also a great season ender, a huge game changer for the world of The Expanse.
* They compressed a few characters into Drummer, who isn't in book 3 at all, because they wanted to keep Cara Gee on the show and because they're not going to change the cast wholesale season to season. Drummer is a great character, they couldn't be happier with how that's playing out for them.
* Season 4 is going to be another blood-soaked gold rush- they've suddenly discovered the New World, there's land, resources, potential for making incredible fortunes. The book takes place entirely on one planet, but the show is not going to leave Earth, Mars and the Belt behind. Both fans of the books and of the show are going to see something really interesting and new in S4. Bobbie and Avasarala are definitely going to be in S4. All these new habitable worlds that opened up through the Ring gate, they destabilize Earth and the Belt as well as Mars and we haven't yet really been to the planet Mars. There's a great storyline for Avasarala on Earth and other places as well.
What did you think about the season 3 finale? Here's to many more seasons on Amazon.
A new petition is calling on Starz to end their relationship with 50 Cent after he ridiculed Terry Crews on Instagram after Crews shared his own personal experience as a victim of sexual assault.
"50 Cent is, in fact, a very powerful man in Hollywood. The rapper turned actor stars and produces in Starz's most watched show "Power" and last year the cable network announced that he had signed on to produce 3 more shows for the premium channel. Starz should send a message to the rapper and to all other potential producers and filmmakers that they will not tolerate this type of ignorance."
