Emma Stone sells Malibu mansion for $4.4million

Emma Stone sells mansion

Emma Stone has sold her Malibu mansion for $4.4 million.

The 33-year-old actress has owned the mid-century bungalow since 2018 but has reportedly sold it after just two months on the market, according to PEOPLE.

Eric Lavey of Sotheby's International Realty told WSJ: "It's a classic 1958 California Midcentury hanging over the Pacific. It's the Malibu beach house they would choose for a Nancy Meyers movie."

The plush pad is said to be more than 1,700 square feet as well as three bedrooms and two bathrooms and also features several recreation rooms, an art studio, and a sprawling kitchen.

The 'Cruella' star married writer Dave McCary back in 2020 and welcomed daughter Louise Jean McCary in March of the following year with the family reportedly taking up residence in a new home in Austin, Texas.

The 'La La Land' actress is said to have bought the property around the time she bought a house in Manhattan and purchased a third home in Los Angeles the following year.

Despite having a reported net worth of around $40million, Emma previously insisted that money "doesn't bring love or happiness" and explained that her parents worked "so hard" so she could achieve her career goals.

She said: Money "doesn’t buy you love or happiness – my parents taught me that. My father worked so hard for so long to get me where I am. My parents have never acted in their lives. They’re both afraid of public speaking but they’re amazing. They said, ‘We can’t imagine why you want to act but we understand you want to.’"

James Cameron fears Avatar sequel will flop at the box office

Cameron fears Avatar flop

James Cameron is unsure that 'Avatar: The Way of Water' will succeed at the box office.

The 67-year-old filmmaker has helmed the long-awaited sequel to the 2009 sci-fi epic – the highest-grossing film of all time – but says there are no guarantees it will be a hit at cinemas.

James told Empire magazine: "If we did 20 per cent or 30 per cent less because the market simply doesn't exist anymore, that would be bad.

"The trolls will have it that nobody gives a s*** and they can't remember the characters' names or one damn thing that happened in the movie... Then they see the movie again and go, 'Oh okay, excuse me, let me just shut the f*** up right now.' So I'm not worried about that."

The 'Titanic' director revealed that the new movie will have a long runtime but says he doesn't want audiences to "whine" about it when they spend hours binge-watching television.

James said: "I don't want anybody whining about length when they sit and binge-watch (television) for eight hours... I can almost write this part of the review. 'The agonisingly long three-hour movie...' It's like, give me a f****** break. I've watched my kids sit and do five one-hour episodes in a row."

The director also suggested that fans should answer nature's call even if it means missing some of the epic movie.

Cameron said: "Here's the big social paradigm shift that has to happen: it's okay to get up and go pee."

The filmmaker explained that he had questioned whether making an 'Avatar' sequel was the right thing to do.

He said: "I had to think long and hard whether I even wanted to make another 'Avatar' film, because it was kind of ours to lose.

"When you’ve done something that’s been that transcendent in terms of success, do you really want to go try and do that again? There’s a lot of pressure on it. I thought about it for a good two years before we finally made a deal."



Oprah Winfrey throws surprise BBQ for sick dad

Oprah's surprise BBQ

Oprah Winfrey threw a surprise BBQ party for her sick father on Monday (04.07.22).

The TV titan decided to show her appreciation for her dad Vernon Winfrey as he battles ill health so she gathered her closest friends and family around for a lavish Fourth of July backyard party in his honour complete with a banner emblazoned with the words 'Vernon Winfrey Appreciation Day'.

In a post on Instagram, Oprah explained: "So, I’ve been planning a backyard barbecue that’s actually more than a backyard barbecue, it’s for Vernon Winfrey Appreciation Day.

"Because my father is ill and so we wanted to be able to have all of his friends come and celebrate him while he is able to receive the joy, so that’s what we're doing receiving the joy."

The telly star explained she was able to keep the party a secret from Vernon by telling him it was just a party to mark America's Fourth of July holiday.

She added: "He doesn't even know this is for him. He thinks it’s a Fourth of July thing he doesn’t even know it’s for him."

Guests were treated to food including fried chicken, burgers and brisket, while Oprah also arranged to have a barber's chair installed for Vernon to celebrate his profession.

She explained: "My dad’s a barber so we put him in the barber chair. We put him in the barber chair."

Oprah shared the video along with a sweet note telling her followers to appreciate the people they love.

She wrote: "Giving my father his 'flowers' while he’s still well enough to smell them. Happy 4th of July as you gather with your family and friends. Remember to celebrate each other."

Nicky Hilton has given birth to a baby boy

Nicky Hilton has a boy

Nicky Hilton has given birth to a baby boy.

The 38-year-old socialite - who has been married to entrepreneur James Rothschild since 2015 and already has Lily-Grace, five, and Teddy, four, with him - took to Instagram on Tuesday (05.07.22) to reveal that she and her husband had welcomed their third child together.

Without revealing the child's name, she wrote alongside a silhouette-style photograph of herself and James: "We are officially a party of 5! Welcome to the world sweet boy. Mom, dad, and big sisters could not be more smitten."

The happy news comes just months after Nicky's older sister and reality star Paris, 41, - who herself found love and married businessman Carter Reum back in November 2021 - threw an all-blue baby shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival.

Alongside a carousel of images from the day, Nicky wrote on Instagram: "Showered with so much love at baby boy's sprinkle! Thank you @aliceandolivia, @tinachencraig @parishilton for filling the room with my favorite people, sweets, treats and pregnancy cravings (hot tamales + dried mangoes). I loved every minute!"

On the day, the family indulged in all-blue sweet treats and the room was covered in baby blue teddy bears and matching balloons, with Paris sharing her own post of photos from the party gushing that she "can't wait" to meet her nephew.

She captioned the post: "Hosted the most beautiful baby shower for my gorgeous sis @NickyHilton with my fellow hostesses @TinaChenCraig @AliceAndOlivia! Can't wait to meet my baby nephew!"

In keeping with the blue theme, Nicky commented on the 'Paris In Love' star's post with a series of blue heart emojis while Tina Chen wrote: "Can’t wait to squeeze the little guy!"

The sex of the baby was first revealed towards the end of March, when Nicky's parents Kathy and Richard Hilton told of how "excited" they are to be welcoming a grandson, but it followed Nicky's claims that her "old-fashioned" mother was reluctant for her to find out the sex of her baby.

When asked directly about the sex of the baby, she said: "I'm finding out soon, maybe. But my mom doesn't want to me to find out. My mom's very old-fashioned. She's like, 'I didn't find out for any of you kids. Please, it's the ultimate surprise in life, do not find out. But we'll see."



Tom Hanks questions decision to replace Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear

Hanks questions new Buzz

Tom Hanks doesn't understand the decision to replace Tim Allen as Buzz Lightyear.

The Hollywood icon features in 'Elvis' and has been competing at the box office against the 'Toy Story' spin-off 'Lightyear' – which sees Chris Evans take over from Allen as the voice of the legendary character – and regrets that he didn't get the chance to go up against his former co-star.

Tom, who voiced Sheriff Woody in the 'Toy Story' films, told CinemaBlend: "Actually, I wanted to go head-to-head with Tim Allen and then they didn't let Tim Allen do it. I don't understand that."

Despite the competition, Hanks is more concerned about people returning to cinemas following the pandemic and is hoping to see a movie with Allen.

The 65-year-old star said: "Here's the thing – just as long as people come back to the motion picture theatre. I want to go back in the theatre with a bunch of strangers and leave with something in common.

"That's what I want to do and, going to see a movie with him (Allen) – I'm looking forward to that."

Allen has criticised 'Lightyear' due to its lack of continuity from the 'Toy Story' movies and was frustrated to be excluded from the project by a "new team" behind the scenes.

The 69-year-old actor said: "It’s a wonderful story, it just doesn’t seem to have any connection to the toy. It has no relationship to Buzz.

"We talked about this many years ago... but the (top) brass that did the first four movies is not this.

"It’s a whole new team that really had nothing to do with the first movies."



In reversal, prosecutors say R. Kelly off suicide watch

R. Kelly off suicide watch

R. Kelly is no longer on suicide watch following the jailed R&B singer's sentencing in a federal sex abuse case, prosecutors said in court papers filed on Tuesday.

The filing came in response to a claim last week by Kelly’s attorneys that the 55-year-old Kelly was placed on suicide watch as a form of punishment last week after a judge sentenced him to 30 years behind bars for using his fame to sexually exploit women and girls.

Initially, prosecutors said the measure was needed for Kelly's "own safety” following a psychological examination. They reversed themselves on Tuesday, saying prison officials took him off suicide watch based on a follow-up “clinical assessment.”

The Grammy-winning, multiplatinum-selling songwriter was found guilty last year of racketeering and sex trafficking. He has denied wrongdoing and plans to appeal his conviction.



James Cameron may not direct Avatar 4 and 5

Cameron to pass baton?

James Cameron may not direct 'Avatar 4 and 5'.

The 67-year-old filmmaker has completed filming on 'Avatar: The Way of Water' and 'Avatar 3' - which will be released in December 2022 and December 2024 respectively - and though two further films in the franchise are planned, the director has admitted he may want to "pass the baton" on taking the helm of the rest of the series because the movies are so "all-consuming."

He told Empire magazine: “The 'Avatar' films themselves are kind of all-consuming.

"I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting. I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know.”

James - whose first 'Avatar' came out in December 2009 - is very excited about the overall messaging in the film series, and is particularly excited for fans to see the planned fourth movie.

He said: “Everything I need to say about family, about sustainability, about climate, about the natural world, the themes that are important to me in real life and in my cinematic life, I can say on this canvas.

“I got more excited as I went along. Movie four is a corker. It’s a motherf*****. I actually hope I get to make it. But it depends on market forces.

"Three is in the can so it’s coming out regardless. I really hope that we get to make four and five because it’s one big story, ultimately.”

'Avatar: The Way of Water' is set over a decade after the original movie and features a cast including Kate Winslet, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington and Sigourney Weaver.



Sammy Hagar admits he doesn't do music for the money

Sammy: not for the money

Sammy Hagar says music not being his biggest source of income makes playing shows more enjoyable.

The former Van Halen frontman, 74, insists he continues to play shows for the fulfilment it gives him, not the money, as he's able to make a better living from his booze empire and books.

The Red Rocker has been in the tequila business for three decades, having started out with Cabo Wabo in 1991.

He's also released a series of tomes, his most recent being 'Sammy Hagar's Cocktail Hits: 85 Personal Favorites from the Red Rocker'.

Because of his other businesses, Sammy is able to pay his band more money than they would ever earn, and he says not relying on the paycheque from gigs, means he feels like he's still in his "garage band" days.

Speaking on 'TMZ Live', he said when asked if he earns more from his other businesses than he does music: "It's true, it's absolutely true.

"What's made it so great for I'm telling you guys, I swear by this anybody if you get lucky enough to get successful outside of music, it makes it so much better in your elder years.

"I'm in my 70s and I'm still going playing music and you know why? Because I don't have to do it for a living I don't have to make it my business. So I can pay my band, like more than they can make. You know, I mean, they're happy. And so they're happy to play with me that we all walk out on stage. And we're happy to do it because we don't have to do it when you've been doing it as long as me, man unless you're Keith Richards ... He's my favourite rock star on the planet. A lot of people are doing it for money, and they go out they punch the clock. And so we do it for fun. It's almost like we're in a garage band again, because I make my living in another way and music is something I just love to do."



Duffer Brothers reveal Stranger Things plans for season five finale

Hints at Stranger season 5

The Duffer Brothers say 'Stranger Things' will have shorter episodes in season five.

The hugely popular Netflix show will end with its upcoming fifth series, and siblings Ross and Matt Duffer - who created the sci-fi favourite and serve as showrunners - have given some hints of what to expect after season four's feature length episodes, with the next run not requiring much build-up.

They told the 'Happy Sad Confused' podcast: "The only reason we don’t expect to be as long is, this season, if you look at it, it’s almost a two-hour ramp up before our kids really get drawn into a supernatural mystery.

"You get to know them, you get to see them in their lives, they’re struggling with adapting to high school and so forth, Steve’s trying to find a date, all of that.

"None of that is obviously going to be occurring [in season 5]."

However, they admitted the show's finale will "likely" be a feature length episode, in a similar way to season four's ending.

They added: "We’re more likely to do what we did here, which is to just have a 2.5 hour episode.”

With season four ending in dramatic fashion and plenty at stake, the Duffer Brothers admitted the next series will throw fans right back into the action with no need to set the scene or take time to establish "a goal and a drive".

They explained: "Characters are already going to be in action, they’re already going to have a goal and a drive, and I think that’s going to carve out at least a couple hours and make this season feel really different.

“I’m sure the wrap-up will be a lot longer, it’s going to be ‘Return of the King’-ish with, like, eight endings.”



Halsey: Having an abortion saved my life

Abortion saved her life

Halsey has admitted that having an abortion "saved[ her] life."

The 27-year-old pop star - who welcomed son Ender in July 2021 with partner Alev Aydin - explained that prior to motherhood she had suffered three miscarriages and that one of them was effectively an "abortion" because her body was unable to terminate the pregnancy alone without serious risk to her own health.

She said: "I miscarried three times before my 24th birthday. It seemed a cruel irony that I could get pregnant with ease but struggled to maintain a pregnancy. One of my miscarriages required ‘aftercare,’ a gentle way of saying that I would need an abortion because my body could not terminate the pregnancy completely on its own and I would risk going into sepsis without medical intervention."

The 'Without Me' hitmaker - who was speaking out following the overturning of the Roe v Wade ruling, which has left millions of women across the US without access to legal or safe abortions - went on to insist that despite becoming a mother, she has not changed her stance on termination and claimed that all women "deserve" the right to choose for themselves.

She told Vogue: "Many people have asked me if, since carrying a child to term after years of struggling to do so, I have reconsidered my stance on abortion. The answer is firmly no. In fact, I have never felt more strongly about it. My abortion saved my life and gave way for my son to have his. Every person deserves the right to choose when, if, and how they have this dangerous and life-altering experience. I will hold my son in one arm, and fight with all my might with the other."



Winona Ryder and David Harbour's Stranger Things kiss wasn't scripted

Kiss wasn't scripted

Winona Ryder and David Harbour's kiss on 'Stranger Things' was not scripted.

The 50-year-old actress and the 47-year-old actor's alter-egos Joyce Byer and Jim Hopper shared a steamy planned first kiss earlier in season four but decided to add in a spontaneous second smooch in the season finale.

A message on the 'Stranger Things' Twitter account stated: "This kiss wasn’t scripted, Winona and David added it on the day of filming."

In the scene, Joyce was struggling with flashbacks to her former boyfriend Bob's (Sean Astin) death and Hopper reassured her with a sweet kiss.

Speaking previously about the romance between their characters, David said: "The fans, they call it, like, Jopper or something. They all ship this relationship with Hopper and Joyce, and I do too because I feel like they’re two really lonely, lost people that really need each other.”

And Brett Gelman, who plays Murray Bauman, added: "I definitely ship it. They love each other. That is all that matters. When you meet single people and they are putting together a criteria of what you want, I am like, ‘You are wasting your time and you are stressing yourself out for nothing.’”



Rebel Wilson talks weight loss: 'doesn't define you'

'Weight doesn't define you'

Rebel Wilson says she is more than just her weight.

The 42-year-old actress famously embarked on a "year of health" in 2020 and lost 80lbs but Rebel admitted that she has to remind herself that she is not defined by her weight after it crept up following an all-inclusive holiday with her girlfriend, Ramona Agruma.

She shared a picture of herself in a bathing suit on Instagram and wrote: "I just noticed I put on 3 kg’s on my holiday. I’m at an amazing all-inclusive resort…I’ve lost all self control. But you know what? I can get up tomorrow and go to the gym, and hydrate and eat healthy and love myself. It doesn’t help to be hard on yourself but I know what it’s like to feel guilty and not great after eating too much. But if you’re like me just know YOU are more than just your weight, your weight doesn’t define you, just try your best to be healthy and don’t be so hard on yourself. Be the best version of you."

Rebel previously revealed her weight-loss journey was sparked by her fertility doctor, who advised she would have a better chance of harvesting and freezing her eggs if she lost weight.

She said: "He looked me up and down and said, 'You'd do much better if you were healthier.'

"I was taken aback. I thought, 'Oh God, this guy's so rude.' He was right'. I was carrying around a lot of excess weight. It's almost like I didn't think of my own needs. I thought of a future child's needs that really inspired me to get healthier.

"It wasn't a goal to get to a certain weight. It was just being the healthiest version of myself."
