“You know, everybody’s like ah, Trump is president, you know, it’s crazy, but the average person, like day to day life, Trump being president didn’t change it that much,” explains executive producer Stephen Glover. “So I think we’re kind of somewhere in between there.”
Director Hiro Murai adds that the shift in politics is “more of a mood” or a “social atmosphere” than anything that directly affects Earn or Alfred or the many other characters who pop up in their world.
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom sparked romance rumors on Wednesday after they were spotted touring around Prague.
According to an eyewitness, the pair left Bloom’s apartment in the early afternoon. The insider claimed the 41-year-old actor has been renting the flat since the early fall and living in it while filming the TV drama Carnival Row with Cara Delevigne. The apartment is in a scenic location near the Vltava River and the Prague National Theatre.
Perry bundled up in a long black jacket, yellow scarf and turquoise beanie to block out the cold while Bloom kept cozy in a dark jacket, pink hoodie and orange hat. He also brought along his adorable pup.
After they left the apartment, the two enjoyed lunch at Savoy, where they sat at a table hidden from street viewers. Then, it was time for some sightseeing. According to the insider, the stars visited Prague Castle to see the St. Vitus Cathedral. The two then strolled along Golden Lane—a street lined with tiny houses—inside the complex and headed off to the Strahov Monastery, which contains a breathtaking library.
Near the end of their day, the celebrities popped by the Orea Hotel Pyramida.
Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is a mama with major style.
The royal, who has her third little one on the way, is obviously no novice when it comes to dressing a baby bump. Having triggered “the Kate effect” from the moment she stepped out as PrinceWilliam‘s one and only, Middleton’s fashion influence has continued to hold strong as she’s gracefully sailed through three pregnancies in the spotlight.
While the star once again suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness, at the start of her most recent pregnancy, the future mother of three carried on like a pro in the public eye, armed with one seriously elegant wardrobe.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z enjoyed a family movie night with Blue Ivy on Monday by sneaking her into the Los Angeles premiere of A Wrinkle in Time.
As the photos from her website show, Queen B spared no expense for her look. In fact, her entire ensemble cost about $30,000! The “Formation” singer wore a $2,950 Zimmerman dress with a blue and green floral pattern. She then accessorized her look with a pair of $850 Off-White heels and a $275 green clutch from Onna Ehrlich. As for the bling, Bey opted for a $4,300 diamond flower knuckle ring by Marly and a $20,560 pair of long, white gold earrings with white diamonds by AS29.
Though he went along with it, Jason admitted that he knew it was “the wrong thing to do” and said his biggest regret was not standing up to the producers.
I went against ever moral, every bone, everything in my body,” he explained. “I never stood up to them. I don’t know if I was afraid of the producers. You know, it’s not just one person. There’s a team of like a hundred people all saying the same thing–audio people, producers and directors, and people who are just serving you lunch–and they’re all on this team and it’s like how can a hundred people be wrong? When I go back to it, I wish I would have stood my ground and never did anything that was against my morals or hurt anyone.”
Alec Baldwin is standing by his past defenses of his friends Woody Allen and James Toback with regard to sexual misconduct claims made against him, and has also weighed in on the #MeToo movement as it continues to grow.
Both directors and writers have denied the claims made against them. Baldwin, who has worked with both men on numerous films, talked to The Hollywood Reporter about Allen and Toback in an interview posted on Thursday, three days before the premiere of his new ABC talk show Sundays with Alec Baldwin.
“My inclination to want to defend my friends—who either a I thought were innocent, which is Woody or b) I had no knowledge of what they did and I still have no knowledge of what they did, which is Toback—is a normal inclination,” Baldwin said. “It’s a normal inclination to want to rally by your friends up until the point that they are convicted of something. If they’re convicted of a crime, well then you’re sad, and that’s tragic, but they’ve got to go through that process. In the meantime, I hope that we see some manifestation of this beyond just social media.”
Baldwin, whose overall stance about sexual misconduct scandals has been echoed online by scores of people in recent months, was also asked if he would have Allen on as a guest.
I doubt there’s any amount of money you could pay Woody to come on and talk about this stuff,” the actor said. “He has already said everything he has to say.”
For many fans, Miley Cyrus‘ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance brings back memories of Robin Thicke and foam fingers. But for the 25-year-old singer, the controversial number symbolizes a major shift in her life.
“Not only was culture changed, but my life and career were changed forever…It inspired me to use my platform for something much bigger,” she says in the new cover story for Wonderland’s Spring 2018 issue (via Just Jared). “If the world is going to focus on me and what I am doing, then what I am doing should be impactful and it should be great.”
Cyrus says the incident encouraged her to become more involved with the causes she cares about and even launch the Happy Hippie Foundation—a nonprofit that’s “fighting injustice for vulnerable populations,” including homeless youth and members of the LGBTQ community.
When Christine Baranski sat down to talk on set of The Good Fight, she was coming off a busy (and fabulous) 24 hours. The day before, she filmed all day for her CBS All Access drama, headed out for an interview—complete with a musical performance—on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and closed out her evening taking in costar Bernadette Peters‘ opening night in Hello, Dolly!. All that on a “school night.” Back at work the following day, Baranski was ready to go on this gray, rainy Friday in February.
“I would do anything for Bernadette,” the Emmy winner said while snacking on bite-sized chocolates in her dimly lit dressing room during a scene turnaround. Being there for your costars is a leading actor staple.
Salma Hayek says Frida co-star Ashley Judd inspired her to finally come forward with her own allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Both actresses are among dozens of women who have publicly accused the producer of sexual misconduct in recent months. He has apologized for his past behavior with colleagues and has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.
Hayek interviewed Judd for a Town & Country article, published on Thursday online and in the magazine’s April 2018 issue, and the two discussed Weinstein. While Judd was among the first women to speak out about his alleged unwanted behavior towards him, last fall, it took Hayek a couple more months. She talks about her reluctance to speak out and also says Penélope Cruz, a longtime friend, was “really angry” at her for not telling her “what was going on while it was happening.”
But she did learn how to do “this.” Metcalf began doing plays in high school, but continued to think making a living as an actor wouldn’t be feasible. She began studying theater, and along with many other famous faces like Gary Sinise and Joan Allen, established the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. From there, Metcalf hit the Broadway scene in New York City, garnering praise with various roles. Big screen gigs followed, her first credited movie role was in Desperately Seeking Susan in 1985, as did TV roles, including her career-defining role of Jackie Harris in Roseanne. Metcalf has won a Tony Award and three Emmys for her acting work and picked up her first Oscar nomination for 2017’s Lady Bird, her first movie role in nearly a decade.
When it comes to competing for Adam Rippon‘s heart, Shawn Mendes took the silver and Harry Styles took the bronze.
The 28-year-old figure skater broke down the rankings of his celebrity crushes on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Jake Gyllenhaal took home the gold, with Rippon considering him a “solid answer.” The Olympian said Styles used to be higher on his list but that Mendes’ beat him with his looks.
“I was sleeping on Shawn Mendes. Not literally—but I didn’t realized how cute he was,” he told Ellen DeGeneres, later explaining that “sleeping on” was a phrase used when underestimating someone.
“Not with—on,” he clarified.
Still, Rippon knew his answer could break Styles’ heart.
“I know Harry will be upset,” he said, spurring laughter from the audience. “I know, love is a funny thing.”

Rain or shine, Hunter boots are coming to Target!
The big-box retailer announced Thursday morning that the celeb-loved British heritage brand—famous for its waterproof Wellington-type footwear—will be selling more than 300 products in the Hunter for Target collection. Just like all its designer collaborations, the range won’t just include shoes. Expect home, apparel and outdoor goods, like hammocks and coolers, for the whole family.
Even better, price points will range much lower than the $150 it costs for the brand’s best-selling tall boot. Most items will be ring in under $30, according to a press release, with the rest ranging from $5 to $80.
So if you want that Glastonbury festival style, like Alexa Chung, Cara Delevingne and Margot Robbie, or just have a penchant for practical pieces made with classic design, like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, you can score a pair of wellies for a fraction of the cost.
Say it isn’t so, KFC!
It was just last week that hundreds of KFC locations in the U.K. were closed down because the fast food chain ran out of chicken. And now, KFC is running low on gravy!
In response to the chicken shortage last week, the KFC U.K. and Ireland Twitter account wrote to its followers, “We’ve brought a new delivery partner onboard, but they’ve had a couple of teething problems, getting fresh chicken out to 900 restaurants across the country is pretty complex!”
The message continued, “We won’t compromise on quality so no deliveries has meant some of our restaurants are closed, and others are operating on a limited menu, or shortened hours.”
Someone at Tori Spelling‘s house is calling 911.
It seems something is up at the actress’ house because police reported to the Calif. home twice between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, E! News has learned. According to the watch commander at the Topanga Community Police Station, officers first responded to a call Wednesday evening after someone reported a possible break-in, but it was not a break-in.
As the commander confirmed to E! News, police responded to the house again around 7:30 a.m. Thursday. Currently, the investigation is ongoing and the commander could not confirm who made the calls nor the nature of the calls.
Jade Tailor, whose Kady tackles the Gypsy track (sung here as “All I Need Is the Boy”) in the episode, was thrilled at the opportunity, especially since she’d been left out of both previous musical moments. “I literally started crying from excitement and joy because I’m a musical theater girl…There was a running joke on set that if I didn’t get a musical number, I would start killing everyone,” she told us, laughing. “And my response was true. Everyone’s alive, that tells you something. Everyone gets to sing, which is exciting. I get a really fun part.”
So what’s the reason for all the musical mayhem this time around? E! News can exclusively reveal that the answer lies with Trevor Einhorn‘s Josh Hoberman, who hasn’t been seen since joining the gang’s quest to bring magic back in the season’s second episode. Without revealing too much, let’s just say that the quest finds Quentin, Kady and Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) trying to convince their old friend to return home from a place he might not be all that interested in leaving.
