HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP

Everyone clap for Reese Witherspoon!

It looks like the A-list star is going to be spreading some fairy dust after reports state Witherspoon is slated to star in and produce Tink, a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character Tinker Bell.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon will produce with Bruna Papandrea, her partner at the duo's production banner, Pacific Standard, and Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for Pixar's upcoming Finding Nemosequel, Finding Dory, is penning the script for the project.

Tink, which is still in development, does not have a director on board just yet.

Although initially a minor character, Tinker Bell has become a prominent character in the Disney franchise. Peter Pan's fairy companion has typically been portrayed as a temperamental character who can get pretty jealous due to her unrequited love for the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up.

Unfortunately, details on the project are being kept underwraps, but insiders tellTHR it will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pannarrative.

Like Maleficent, which starred Angelina JolieTink is supposed to give viewers insight into "the story you don't know," and will offer a new perspective on our favorite Disney fairy.

 

 

This isn't your ordinary magazine cover.

Supermodel Nicole Trunfino stuns on the cover of Elle Australia's June issue, but along with sharing her ridiculously good looks, she took things a step further by taking what some deem a very controversial image and showed that it is nothing but a sight of beauty and love by posing for the mag's first-ever breastfeeding cover.

"This wasn't a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set," editor-in-chief Justine Cullen said. "It was a completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture."

Trunfino reposted the cover on her personal Instagram and explained how she hopes the photo will normalize breastfeeding.

 

But their French tour of romance didn't end there.

Thicke and Geary also attended Thursday's amfAR's 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

The lovebirds got their PDA on on the red carpet while posing for pics. Thicke wrapped his arm around his girlfriend while rocking an all-black suit. Geary looked stunning in a white crop top that showed off her killer abs paired with a multicolored print skirt that made a bold fashion statement.

Geary is Thicke's first serious public lover since ex Paula Patton, who he officially divorced on March 17.

Flavor Flav, born William Jonathan Drayton Jr., has found himself on the wrong side of the law, yet again.

The rapper-turned-reality-star was arrested early Thursday morning in Sin City by highway patrol after he was caught going 73 mph in a 45 mph zone.

The 56-year-old was charged with a DUI, possession of marijuana, speeding, driving with an open container of alcohol and driving with a suspended license and registration.

His bail was set at $7,000 and local authorities confirm he posted bail earlier today.

Earlier this year, Flav was in a Nassau County courtroom where he pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a traffic stop last year while he was driving to his mother's funeral.

Upon leaving the courthouse, a reporter asked for his reaction to landing in the headlines yet again, only this time for legal matters.

"I don't like the circumstances, but I like the attention," he said at the time.

Prosecutors claim that Flav had his driver's license suspended 15 times prior to the stop while on the way back from his mother's funeral.

And while he's generally outspoken on social media regarding the day's events, Flav has yet to speak out regarding his arrest.

 

 

George Clooney wasn't kidding when he said married life hasn't changed his favorite pastimes and hobbies too much!

The notorious prankster, who loves targeting BFF Brad Pitt, reveals he might have gone a little too far in his latest hijinks against his pal. He tells BBC host Graham Norton that his newest work of prankster art is his best yet, but it comes at a cost!

"I'm doing one now that I can't tell you about, but in a year you are going to hear I've been arrested—I'm not kidding, because I think I've crossed the line," he reveals to Norton in an interview set to air Friday.

Fortunately for the Tomorrowland star, he has a lawyer on his side, who will probably be more than willing to give him a helping hand.

"But I have a wife; she's a barrister. I'll be fine!"

Good ol' George has been pranking his friends, including Matt Damon, for years. He is so thorough in his handiwork that he's willing to invest a lot of time for the sake of a prank. At one point, he managed to convince Matt that he was gaining weight while filming a movie.

But, as Matt explained on The Tonight Show while promoting The Monuments Men last year, George was so stealth in his undercover work that he didn't even realize he was being pranked until after the movie wrapped.

"I read finally, which answered a lot for me, that he'd been taking my wardrobe in," said Matt, explaining that "every couple of days" George was having his pants taken in "about an eighth or a sixteenth of an inch."

WATCH: George Clooney pranks his own dad!

This caused a lot of confusion for the father of four, "because [George] had said, 'We're gonna get in shape!'"

"I was working out, and the pants [were getting tighter]—I said, 'This just can't be,'" Matt, 44, said with a laugh. "I never said anything to him, which he probably loved even more."

We have to give credit where credit is due and also some serious respect for the level of dedication George has to the prank cause.

 

 

Summer just hit and so did the hot new video from Nick Jonas and Sage the Gemini.

The baby brother of the Jonas Brothers is all grown up and flexing both his muscles in his sleeveless shirt and his powerful pipes when he pours his heart out for the catchy chorus. Jordin Sparks' new beau lays down some relaxing rhymes that cool off Nick's steaming hot vocals.

There's no better way to get the summer off rolling with a catchy and feel good song that will surely have a spot on many pool party playlists.

The music video takes place in a tropical paradise full of beautiful women in bikinis backdropping the two 22-year-old hunks. The song celebrates loving life and having a good time. It's just what their teen fans want to see right from getting out of school.

However, the song is deeper than at first appears. It's not just about having a good time but also an attempt to overcome road bumps in a relationship. Perhaps Sage is rapping about Jordin in this one. Hopefully for him and Nick "the good thing keeps happening", and as well for all summer bound people.

 

 

Family ties really do bind.

A recently unearthed police report filed in Arkansas states that 19 Kids and Counting patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and wife Michelle brought their eldest son,Josh Duggar, in to the Children's Safety Center in Springdale, Ark., in 2006 to be interviewed in response to an accusation that he had sexually abused underage girls in 2002 and 2003.

The report, first obtained by In Touch magazine, stated that a tip had been phoned in to the Arkansas State Police Child Abuse Hotline. The police report has since been expunged to protect the identity of a minor child who was alleged to be the victim of a sex crime, according to a copy of the court order filed today and obtained by E! News.

But now, the family has spoken.

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret," now 27-year-old Josh Duggar, who is expecting his fourth child with wife Anna Duggar, said Thursday in a statement to People.

"I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life."

The 2006 police report states that "the parents" said the accused had "admit[ted] to fondling" the named victims three and a half years prior and "the father said that he went to a state trooper and reported this, but no report was ever filed." The report further states that Jim Bob and Michelle said at the time that "they were both comfortable that nothing had occurred since [name blacked out] went through the program in Little Rock," referring to a counseling program at Vista Hospital that Josh was in from March 17, 2003, until July 17, 2003.

 

 

We do not think we're overselling this emoji update by saying one of the new ones will change the texting game forever. Not one bit. We are going to use the s--t out of one of them.

Personally, the smiling pile of poop emoji is usually our number one most used emoji for texting. But after looking at the list of new emojis coming out next year, we think that Mr. Poop McGrinny (that's what we call him) won't be used as much. Because there is on particular emoji that we know we'll be using pretty much in response to every single text we ever get.

Unicode has released a list of 38 emojis that will hopefully be approved for release in June of 2016. The document listing the reasons why they are requesting certain emojis be added are sort of interesting, like "pregnant woman" completes the family set and the "face palm" is the most requested from Apple users.

Here is the full list of the emojis coming out next year:

•Face with cowboy hat
•Clown face
•Nauseated face
•Rolling on the floor laughing
•Drooling face
•Lying face
•"Call me" hand
•Selfie
•Raised back of hand
•Left-facing fist
•Right-facing fist
•Handshake
•Hand with first and index finger crossed
•Pregnant woman
•Face palm
•Shrug
•Man dancing
•Prince
•Man in tuxedo
•Mother Christmas
•Wilted flower
•Scooter
•Motor scooter
•Octagonal sign
•Clinking glasses
•Black heart
•Croissant
•Avocado
•Cucumber
•Bacon
•Potato
•Carrot
•Fox face

Ever wonder what a day in the life of Jennifer Aniston is like? Well, it's apparently exactly what you might think. That is, as they say: She just like us!

How do we know this? The former Friends star took over the Living Proof Instagram account on Thursday and so far it's been healthy eats, yoga with her adorable dog and your obligatory #ThrowBackThursday snapshot. Pretty standard.

But later in the day she also shared something sort of unusual (Well, for city folk).

The actress posted a pic of a basket bucket full of eggs with the caption: "Our chickens have been very hard at work." Indeed, we counted more than two dozen eggs in the snapshot!

 

 

Matthew Lewis leaves little to the imagination!

The actor, best known for playing Neville Longottom in the Harry Potter films, lifts his shirt to reveal his six-pack abs for the June 2015 cover of Attitude, the U.K.'s best-selling and award-winning gay magazine. The Internet has been swooning over Lewis' transformation for years, and for his role in the movie Me Before You, out in 2016, he somehow managed to get into even better shape.

 

 

Anyone else want to hitch a ride with James Corden?

The Late Late Show host has driven Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson around L.A., and in Thursday's episode, it was none other than Justin Bieber's turn to sit in the passenger seat to sing carpool karaoke.

"Should we listen to some music?" Corden asked.

"Let's do it," Bieber replied.

Corden cued up Bieber's 2010 single "Baby," then admitted, "I'm pumped!"

 

 

Buoyed by her "Bad Blood" buzz, the star scores her 25th week at the summit.

Taylor Swift is again the week's top music act in the U.S., rising 2-1 on theBillboard Artist 100 (dated May 30), fueled by the start of her new single, "Bad Blood."

The Artist 100 is the first weekly survey dedicated to measuring artist activity across Billboard's most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales and the Social 50. The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.

Swift scores her record-extending 25th week atop the Artist 100. As her newKendrick Lamar-assisted single "Bad Blood" re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 53following the premiere of its celebrity-studded video at the start of the Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 17), she gains by 8 percent in overall activity on the Artist 100. She logs a 29 percent surge in social reaction (also claiming a 23rd week at No. 1 on the Social 50 chart) and a 23 percent increase in digital song sales, according to Nielsen Music.

Rounding out the Artist 100's top five, Maroon 5 bumps 5-2; Wiz Khalifa holds at No. 3; Ed Sheeran lifts 6-4; and The Weekend climbs 8-5.

Walk the Moon reaches the Artist 100's top 10, powered by its smash single "Shut Up and Dance." Digital song sales account for the largest slice of the group's activity (47 percent), followed by airplay (37 percent). The track, up 5-4 on the Hot 100, bullets at No. 2 on Digital Songs (142,000 sold, up 5 percent) and No. 3 onRadio Songs (138 million in audience, up 5 percent).

 

Mama June is so angry TLC has not cancelled "19 Kids and Counting" she's prepared to sue TLC, claiming the Duggar family is way worse than hers, yet they still have a show.

June tells TMZ there is no way TLC can justify keeping the Duggar family on the air yet yanking 'Honey Boo Boo.' June notes within hours of TMZ posting the pic of her cavorting with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel, TLC pulled the plug on her show.

June says she never molested anyone and McDaniel wasn't ever on her show, yet Josh Duggar is a central figure on the TLC show and admitted to molesting some of his sisters, who are also on the show. What's more, she believes Jim Bob and Michelle covered up their son's misdeeds. 

With that backdrop, June says she's out hundreds of thousands of dollars because of the abrupt cancellation of her show, and if the Duggar family stays on the air, she wants to sue the network for what she believes is blatantly unfair and inconsistent treatment. 

And June adds, "I read that the Duggar family said, this happening with their son brought them closer to God and each other. So they're saying it's ok to have family touch time? Hell no."

 

 

Wiz Khalifa just wanted to get turnt up in Vegas for this Memorial Day weekend but there's a big wrinkle ... baby mama Amber Rose.

We’re told Wiz just found out his estranged wife has booked a suite at the Palms Casino Resort, the same place he's staying. He's contacted the hotel and insisted that he's not on her floor. Wiz has made it clear ... he does not want Amber in his line of sight during the long weekend.

It's gonna be complicated, because Amber's hosting a pool party the same day Wiz debuts at club Rain as DJ Daddy Kat.  

Here's what's apparent ... bad blood in Vegas won't stay in Vegas.
