People were shocked at Angelina Jolie’s appearance on the red carpet at the Rome Film Festival, where Angelina was promoting her new movie, “Eternals.” At first glance, you don’t see anything wrong. She actually looks quite lovely in a gorgeous, strapless form-fitting silver Versace gown crafted from “heritage metal mesh” (don’t know what that is, but it’s definitely nothing like linen). But, then you see the pics from the Daily Mail, and you’re like, “Yeah, okay, there it is.” From the back, there was Angelina’s hair and then her down-to-the-butt hair extensions, two completely different lengths, thicknesses, colors, textures, everything! As Anomalie Anomie pointed out on Twitter, “Where is the loyalty? Who let Angelina Jolie leave the house with these extensions?”
More details have been released regarding the incident involving Alec Baldwin firing a prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded writer-director Joel Souza on the set of “Rust.” The Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office has released details from eyewitness interviews, including one with Joel. According to Joel, he and Halyna were standing behind the camera while Alec was practicing drawing his character’s gun for an upcoming scene. Joel told police he heard someone say “cold gun” (safe to use) as they were prepping for the scene, but he didn’t know if the gun had been rechecked after the crew came back from lunch break. After the gun discharged, he heard a loud pop and realized that he and Halyna were bleeding.
Joel was bleeding, and he recalled Halyna grabbing her midsection and complaining about her stomach after being shot in the chest. According to another witness, medics began to treat her injury immediately, and she airlifted to a hospital where she succumbed to her injuries, according to extratv.com.
Tom Brady threw his 600th career touchdown on Sunday, that’s a big deal. Even bigger deal – he saw a young fan in the stands wearing a TB12 jersey who had a sign which read, "Tom Brady helped me beat brain cancer." Tom took the ball cap he was wearing off his head and gave it to the kid, who couldn’t help but get super emotional. See the video at tmz.com. I don’t watch football, but I could watch that moment over and over again.
YouTuber David Dobrik is now a Guinness World Record holder. He officially owns the biggest body pillow in recorded history, teaming up with That Pillow Guy to create a 60-ft tall, 17-ft long and 5-ft wide body pillow of himself. The body pillow officially holds the Guinness World Record for world’s largest body pillow. He even handed out miniature versions of the pillow (maybe about 4-footers?) to fans at the big celebration. I guess you can get a record for just about anything these days.

Kristen Stewart is looking back on her acting career ahead of her big role as Princess Diana in “Spencer,” and in an interview with The Sunday Times, she says she’s “probably made five really good films.” And that’s out of “45 or 50” total films. The movies she’s most proud of? Among them, two films directed by Olivier Assayas, 2014’s “Clouds of Sils Maria” and 2016’s “Personal Shopper.” She doesn’t say what the other few are. Kristen explains, “I’ve only regretted saying yes to a couple of films and not because of the result, but because it wasn’t fun.” But then she does imply it’s because they’re bad movies, adding, “The worst is when you’re in the middle of something and know that not only is it probably going to be a bad movie, but we’re all bracing until the end.” I’m guessing the Twilight films didn’t make the cut…
For once, Chef Gordon Ramsay is the one getting his food nitpicked. Gordon posted a video reacting to TikToker DishedIt roasting his grilled cheese – specifically, a recipe he shared in August 2020 while he was in Tasmania for his show, “Uncharted.” DishedIt slams everything about his sandwich - the choice of cheese (Asiago and Romano, “neither of which are known for melting”), thick bread slices, overpowering kimchi topping, his cooking techniques, and cheese consistency. Gordon’s excuse; “Hold on a minute, girl. I was in Tasmania! They don’t have grilled in Tasmania.” But then he admitted, “Okay, maybe I didn’t put it in the pan long enough, I was in a rush.”
Billie Eilish is burned-out on social media, according to her interview with Elle. She said, “I’m jealous of people who don’t have it. I really wish that there was a way to avoid it. Literally delete my account but still have contact with the fans. I want to be able to have both, but you can’t.” And as for the fans, she said some are not happy with her for going blonde. She explained, “I’ve had different-colored hair and vibes for everything I’ve ever done. I wanted this album to have its own thing. The other day, I posted a video from when I had green hair, and I saw people go, ‘I miss this Billie, the green-haired Billie.’ I’m still the same person. I’m not just different Barbies with different heads.”
Looks like Kim Kardashian will have to wait a little longer to add that “Esquire” to her name. That’s because she still hasn’t passed the bar. She revealed to the Wall Street Journal that she has “a ways to go.” For those keeping score, this was her third attempt at passing the bar. Kim has opted to study under a lawyer rather than go the traditional route of going to school. Not sure about the background of the lawyer she’s studying under, but this can’t be good for their reputation.

As police uncover more details about the shooting on Alec Baldwin’s movie, “Rust,” the focus is turning to Assistant Director Dave Hall, the last person to handle the gun that Alec fired resulting in the death of Halyna Hutchins and injury of director Joel Souza. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dave was previously fired from a movie, "Freedom's Path," in 2019 when a gun "unexpectedly discharged," injuring a sound crew member and halting production of the movie. But forget the police thing, as far as Piers Morgan is concerned, Alec Baldwin is completely at fault. In an op-ed he wrote for Daily Mail, he said that while Alec – who’s also producing the film – may not have known that the gun was loaded, he can’t be absolved from managerial responsibility especially considering the week before, the gun had accidental discharged a few times and complaints had been made about on-set safety practices. Also, chief electrician Serge Svetnoy blamed producers for hiring an inexperienced armorer, 24-year-old Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who is said to have a history of recklessness around guns. Hannah herself doubted her experience and claimed on a podcast last month that she’d almost turned down her last job because she wasn’t sure she was ready.
Months after their engagement aired, “The Bachelorette” couple Katie Thurston and Blake Moynes have called it quits, according to extratv.com.

Chris, 50, popped the question to girlfriend Lauren Zima, 33, during a romantic mountain-top meal in Napa Valley over the weekend, according to OK!
