Chloe Grace Moretz confirmed what we all knew to be true Monday night. The 18-year-old star of Universal Pictures’ Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where she played “Plead the Fifth” for the first time. “I’m very, very nervous,” Moretz said.
Host Andy Cohen asked her three questions, giving her just one chance to pass. After asking what would happen if she were to be trapped in an elevator with Kim Kardashian following their social media scuffle (watch the video for her answer), Cohen brought up Moretz’s Complex cover story. In it, the actress said Taylor Swift was “a talented girl” but said she was not a fan of “squads,” as they “appropriate exclusivity.”
According to Moretz, the two quotes were taken out of context. “What actually happened was they asked me about the meaning of the word ‘squad,’ and what I said was, ‘I don’t like the word squad because it does create exclusively.’ But it was never against Taylor and it was never against her squad,” she said. “It was obviously social media and the public turning women against women, which has been happening for years.” To make her point clear, Moretz added, “It wasn’t about Taylor Swift. It was never about Taylor Swift. They just enjoy turning Taylor against me because it creates a good headline.”
Cohen’s third and final question got a little more personal. “Last time you were here, I asked you about your relationship with Brooklyn Beckham,” he recalled. “You were like, ‘Uh, we’re friends.'” At the time—Sept. 22, 2014, to be exact—Moretz played coy about the 17-year-old scion, telling a loyal viewer, “He’s a very good guy. He’s a good person. I enjoy hanging out with him.”
In hindsight, Moretz said Monday, “I was shady.”
This time around, Cohen brought the receipts—in the form of Instagram photos, natch. “Since then, you’ve posted a picture on Instagram of him kissing your head. He recently posted a picture of you on Instagram calling you ‘bae,'” he told Moretz. “What is your relationship?”
“We’re in a relationship. It’s fine. It’s no biggie. And I think that, you know, the more I don’t make it mysterious, the more that people don’t care,” she said. “So yes, we’re in a relationship.”
Moretz added, “Very exciting news, I’m sure!”
Dina Manzo reveals she fled New Jersey after finalized her divorce and won’t se sack on Rhonj.
When The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns this summer, don’t expect to see original housewife Dina Manzo stirring up drama in the cast.
The 44-year-old Dina Manzo, who just launched her own skincare line, said she won’t be returning to the Bravo hit – and it has nothing to do with her long-standing feud with sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita.
“I [live] in L.A.,” Manzo told Fox 411 in a recent interview. “I don’t live in New Jersey anymore. I went through my divorce this year [and] I moved out to California, so it didn’t make sense.”
Manzo went on to explain that Bravo wanted her back for the show’s seventh season – which will chronicle bestie Teresa Guidice’s return from prison.
Keep up with your favorite celebs in the pages of PEOPLE Magazine by subscribing now. “Of course, they asked me back,” Manzo said. “I thought about it for a minute, and I thought ‘How am I supposed to do this? I don’t live there.’ I have an apartment here in Manhattan but I don’t live in New Jersey, so I don’t see how that could work.”
Manzo’s divorce from husband Tommy Manzo was finalized back in February. Their wedding was chronicled on VH1’s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding. Manzo is currently dating businessman David Cantin, 35.
Just because Manzo’s a Califonia native, though, don’t expect to see her on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or The Real Housewives of Orange County anytime soon. Manzo says reality TV isn’t for her.
“It wasn’t what I thought I was getting myself into, and I realized that.” Manzo explained. “I’m kind of the person that if it’s not comfortable and it doesn’t fit who I am, I walk. You have to be happy and if it doesn’t sit well with your soul, you have to listen to that.”
Dina Manzo is not the only New Jersey housewife who won’t be back for season 7. Amber Marchese exclusively told PEOPLE back in November that she wouldn’t be returning – focusing instead on her second battle with cancer.
After making superhero movie after superhero movie without a female lead, Marvel Studios is finally committing to more female super hero leads. Earlier this year Marvel announced it would release Captain Marvel and now President Kevin Feige says a solo Black Widow movie could be coming soon.
The film has not been completely confirmed yet, but Feige told Deadline: “I would say certainly the one [movie] creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.” This would of course not happen until as early as 2019 as a slew of Marvel films are already lined up, none of which have female leads.
The part of Black Widow a.k.a. Natasha Romanoff is played by Scarlett Johansson and has made bad ass appearances all across the Marvel universe. She’s been in films like Iron Man 2, the Captain America movies, and The Avengers series, where audiences got a look at her controversial origin story: a killer ballerina who undergoes forced sterilization and eventually falls for the Hulk despite zero buildup to that realization in past films.
The later plot point had many fans complaining the character’s story was anti-feminist. With Black Widow being one of the few female heroes in the comic universe and even Johansson’s cast mates calling her character a slut and whore, the outrage was not misplaced.
But what does Johansson have to say about this potential step up for her character? “The character has a really rich origin story,” she told Collider. “In my mind, there’s room for plenty more Black Widow and certainly more-I think I could see her in a standalone film.”
It’s been a great year so far for Brie Larson, and it’s about to get even better. Fresh off an Academy Award win for her performance in Room, the Best Actress winner is set to wed musician Alex Greenwald.
Greenwald, 36, proposed to Larson, 26, during a trip to Tokyo in March, according to Us Weekly. Though the couple, who have been together for several years, waited to announce their engagement, eagle-eyed fans spotted Larson wearing an engagement ring when she hosted Saturday Night Live on May 7.
“He’s the other half of the equation – how can you explain support? I mean, it goes beyond anything,” Larson said to Entertainment Tonight at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this year. “He’s just my person, he’s my best friend.”
Greenwald was the lead singer of Phantom Planet, best known as “the band that sang the theme song for The O.C.”
California, here they come?
Now that Batman and Superman have finally duked it out in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the stage has been set for the DCEU to really take off. With that in mind, one of the most highly anticipated films on the DC slate belongs to Diana Prince a.k.a Wonder Woman.
Although many of the upcoming solo DC films have promised a more lighthearted approach to what we’ve seen, that’s not the tone Diana’s movie will adopt. Wonder Woman will take the Amazon warrior back to the gritty days of WWI, and according to Gal Gadot, it won’t attempt to shy away from the darkness of the era.
Gal Gadot elaborated on that during a recent conversation with Digital Spy – explaining that Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman is a dark movie with a handful of lighthearted moments: In Batman v Superman, you get a glimpse of who she is but not where she comes from. In Wonder Woman, this would be the first time we ever tell the coming-of-age story of how Diana becomes Wonder Woman. It’s very interesting. It has moments of humor, but it’s pretty dark.
As Gal Gadot explains, Wonder Woman will most certainly have its instances of humor and levity, but at the end of the day it will still represent one of the darker DC movies on the slate. This creative decision makes sense when we consider the setting alone. Diana – a relatively inexperienced young Amazon – will leave her home to take part in WWI.
Seeing the carnage of one of the most bloody and brutal wars in human history will have a profound impact on her, and it’s not necessarily something that a filmmaker can convey with Ant-Man level jokes. The Wonder Woman we saw in Batman V Superman had pretty much given up on humanity as a worthy cause, so it’s important for us to see what she saw in order to make that decision.
Before we get all up in arms about Wonder Woman going too dark, it’s important to remember what else is coming on the DC slate. Numerous recent reports have indicated that films like Aquaman and the Justice League movies will lighten up the tone from the overbearingly dark and somber Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the interest of variety, we think it’s actually a good thing that Wonder Woman will set itself apart from the other solo films by keeping a bleaker and more mature tone.
While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has done an amazing job of transitioning many of their characters from the page to the screen, several have gone through some significant changes in making the leap. The character who may have seen the most change from page to screen is Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, who went through a fairly substantial physical transformation. The actress says the traditional look for the character was never going to happen. Joss Whedon promised her that from day one.
Appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers in advance of this weekend’s Captain America: Civil War, the host asked Elizabeth Olsen about the more traditional look of the character. Apparently, Olsen was not previously familiar with the character when Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon presented it to her, but he promised her one thing:
[Joss] said, ‘When you go home and Google her, just know you will never ever have to wear what she wears in the comics.’ Because I did ballet growing up, but that’s not a confident look.
While all of the characters in the MCU have their ornate and somewhat bizarre outfits, most of them tend to make some sense. A couple of the guys wear giant suits of armor. The guy with the shield is a soldier. It’s difficult to argue that Wanda Maximoff’s clothing choice was particularly functional. It looks amazing as a piece of art on a comic page, there’s no question about that, but they would have had to have come up with a pretty convincing argument for why the character would choose to dress like that. It’s just not the sort of thing one would wear on a battlefield.

Getting divorced is no walk in the park, especially if you’re a high-profile actress, but following Drew Barrymore’s announcement that she and husband Will Kopelman are splitting after four years of marriage, the actress seems to be doing just fine. “I’m so happy now, and I have such a good thing in my life with my kids and everything,” she told Us Weekly on Sunday at the Safe Kids Day event in Culver City, CA.
As if promoting the release of her new line of Rosé wine and spending time with friends wasn’t enough to keep her mind off of things, Drew has also been busy with her adorable daughters, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 2. “Yesterday, Olive got into my lipstick and it was a real scene,” she continued. “Let’s just say the whole face got covered, then the hands on the walls, everywhere… I was like, how did this happen in three minutes? It took over an hour to get it off of her. It was nuts.”
Drew also celebrated Frankie’s second birthday last Friday, saying the party was “so sweet and delicious,” and that Frankie’s Minnie Mouse cake was “the best thing ever.”
Beyoncé has knocked Prince off the top of the album chart with Lemonade, preventing the late singer from earning his sixth UK album number one.
On Monday it looked set to be a clean sweep for Prince after his death last week at the age of 57, as the artist held all positions in the Top 5 of the album charts.
But despite being unseated by Beyoncé, Prince still has three spots in the Top 5, with The Very Best Of at number two, Ultimate at number three, and Purple Rain at four.
In total there are 14 Prince albums in the Top 100, according to the Official Charts Company.
He also has six songs in the singles chart Top 100, including Purple Rain at number six and When Doves Cry at 26.
Lemonade was released on Saturday and has now racked up 73,000 chart sales, making it the second-fastest selling artist record of the year, behind David Bowie’s Blackstar.
It becomes Beyoncé’s third number one album in the UK, following Dangerously In Love (2003) and 4 (2011).
Six of the record’s tracks have also hit the Top 40 in the singles chart, with Hold Up at 17, Formation at 31, Sorry at 33, Don’t Hurt Yourself at 36, and Freedom at 40.
Beyoncé’s chart success comes as she begins her blockbuster Formation World Tour, which will bring her to the UK in June.
Topping the singles chart, Drake has smashed the Official Chart streaming record with One Dance, which was streamed 7.86 million times in one week.
This beats the previous record held by Adele’s Hello, which notched up 7.32 million streams in the week of its release in October.
With One Dance holding the number one for the third week running, Sia’s Cheap Thrills remains at two, followed by Mike Posner’s I Took A Pill in Ibiza. At Number four is DNCE’s Cake By The Ocean, with Fifth Harmony’s Work From Home at number five.
“The Danish Girl” star Alicia Vikander has nabbed one of Hollywood’s most coveted leading roles.
Alicia Vikander will be playing Lara Croft in the MGM and Gk Films’ “Tomb Raider” reboot, it was announced Thursday. Norwegian helmer Roar Uthaug is on board to direct.
While other actresses had met for the role, including Daisy Ridley, source indicate that Vikander had always been the first choice. The reason for the delay of announcement was that the studio was waiting for a new draft of the script, sources say.
MGM joined the project in 2013, acquiring rights to the popular video game to develop the feature in partnership with Graham King’s Gk Films. King, who acquired “Tomb Raider” in 2011 from Square Enix, will serve as producer.
The original “Tomb Raider” was released in 1996 by London-based Eidos, which is now part of Square Enix. The games have sold over 35 million units. Square Enix released a reboot in 2013 with a younger Croft (now 21) being sent off on her first big adventure amid amped-up action and set pieces.
Paramount’s two films starring Angelina Jolie as the British archaeologist were released in 2001 and 2003 and grossed $432 million worldwide.
Warner Bros., which owned 20% of Eidos, subsequently launched development of a “Tomb Raider” project with Dan Lin producing, but the feature rights went to Square Enix after it bought Eidos in 2009 for $120 million. Warners came on board in early 2015. MGM has teamed with the studio on “Hot Pursuit,” “Max” and “Creed.”
Vikander won an Oscar for her performance in “The Danish Girl,” and also garnered attention for her performance in “Ex Machina.” Coming up, the actress has the next movie in the Jason Bourne franchise and “The Light Between Oceans” opposite Michael Fassbender.
