Brian Dowling/© 2019 CTMG, Inc.(NEW YORK) — Once Upon a Time in Hollywood filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and his wife, Daniella Pick, are expecting their first baby together.

“Daniella and Quentin Tarantino are very delighted to announce that they are expecting a baby,” the couple said in a statement obtained by People magazine on Wednesday.

Tarantino, 56, met the 35-year-old Israeli actress/singer while visiting Israel to promote his 2009 film Inglorious Basterds. The pair got engaged in 2017 after nearly a year of dating, and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles back in November.

Pick makes a cameo appearance as the fictional actress Daphna Ben-Cobo in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is Forbes' highest paid male actor in the world

No Comments

ABC/Randy Holmes(HOLLYWOOD) — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been named this year’s highest paid male actor in the world, according to Forbes.

The Hobbs & Shaw star raked in an eyebrow-raising $89.4 million between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019 thanks to a lucrative pay formula that includes massive upfront paychecks and a cut of profits on his films. He also gets paid $700,000 per episode for HBO’s Ballers and seven figures in royalties for his Under Armour line.

He’s followed up by two Avengers: Endgame stars: Chris Hemsworth at number two with an estimated $76.4 million and Robert Downey Jr. at number three with $66 million. Fellow Avengers Bradley Cooper, Chris Evans and Paul Rudd also make the list at numbers six, eight and nine respectively.

Other actors on the top 10 include Jackie Chan, Adam Sandler and Will Smith.

Last year, Johnson was number two on the list, with George Clooney taking the top spot.

Hilary Bronwyn Gayle(HOLLYWOOD) — Lionsgate has debuted the first teaser trailer for Bombshell, starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie as the women who took down Fox News boss Roger Ailes.

In the clip, we see Theron as Megyn Kelly, Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Robbie as a fictional news producer named Kayla Pospisil. They all gather for a tense elevator ride as they head to the second floor of the Fox News Channel building, where the executive suite is located.

Bombshell hits theaters December 20.

Roger Ailes, who died in 2017, was forced to resign in 2016 after Carlson accused him of sexual harassment in a lawsuit. Other women at Fox News, including Kelly, also said Ailes sexually harassed them during his tenure at the cable news channel.

Bombshell also stars John Lithgow as Roger Ailes, Connie Britton as Beth Ailes, Allison Janney and Kate McKinnon.

Woody Allen's 'A Rainy Day in New York' making its debut in France after getting shelved in US

No Comments

iStock/Sjo(FRANCE) — Woody Allen’s latest film A Rainy Day in New York will be getting a release after all – in France.

Variety reports the film, which was shelved by Amazon Studios in the U.S., will be opening France’s Deauville American Film Festival next month. It will also get a theatrical release in the country on September 18.

The film stars Timothee Chalamet, Elle Fanning, Jude Law and Selena Gomez. It wrapped production in 2017 just as the #MeToo movement was gathering steam, which led to the resurfacing of abuse allegations against Allen made by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.

The allegations prompted Chalamet to donate his salary from his role to various charity organizations, including Time’s Up, and it was also reported that Gomez made a sizeable anonymous donation to Time’s Up that “far exceeded her salary for the film.”

Deauville’s artistic director Bruno Barde explains to Variety why the festival is supporting Allen.

“I’ve always championed Woody Allen’s films,” says Barde. “I consider myself a feminist, and I understand #MeToo but Woody Allen had been cleared by the American justice in two different states and I trust the American justice system.”

The 45th edition of the Deauville American Film Festival will take place from September 6 to 15.

Tom Bergeron did not agree with having Sean Spicer on 'Dancing with the Stars'

No Comments

Walt Disney Television/Lou Rocco(NEW YORK) — After the Dancing with the Stars season 28 cast was announced Wednesday morning, host Tom Bergeron took to Twitter to share his thoughts on one particularly divisive contestant: former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

In a lengthy message, Bergeron says he was hoping this season “would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”

He says he made this known to the show’s new executive producer and was convinced they were in agreement. But ultimately, the producers decided to “go in a different direction.”

“We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call,” Bergeron writes. “I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

He continues that as a host, he always imagines the audience on the other side, “looking for a two hour escape from whatever life hassles you’ve been wrestling with.”

“That’s a connection, and a responsibility, which I take very seriously, even if I occasionally season it with dad jokes,” he adds.

Bergeron ends his message on a positive note, writing, “Hopefully, when Erin Andrews and I look into those lenses again on September 16, you’ll be on the other side looking back, able to enjoy the charismatic pro dancers, the unpredictable judges and the kitschy charm that has defined DWTS since 2005.”
