Angelina Jolie 'got testy' when asked about divorce: Report
In her recent Vanity Fair cover story, Angelina Jolie opened up about her split from Brad Pitt, arguably for the sake of promoting her new Netflix film, "First They Killed My Father." And that may be all the info she's willing to share about the breakup for a while. The New York Post claims that when Angelina sat down with Juju Chang for a "Nightline" interview last week, the interviewer's "delicately raised" divorce question was not received well. According to the Post, Angelina "lost her temper and refused to answer." One source described the actress and director's reaction as "testy," while a TV insider pointed out, "It's hard to believe she didn't know that question was coming," adding that the reporter "was just doing her job." ABC omitted the footage from that particular part of the interview. The mother of six reportedly responded in a similar manner to questions about her Bell's Palsy diagnosis and hypertension scare, both of which were revealed in the Vanity Fair article. "I'm fine right now. I'm fine right now," she said, according to the Post. "My children are healthy. I'm healthy."

Why Kylie Jenner 'bailed on' her interview with Megyn Kelly
"Cold feet." That's the reason Kylie Jenner begged out of being interviewed by Megyn Kelly with her sisters and mom for the "Today" show, according to the New York Post. Although Kylie had shared photos of herself prepping for the interview at the NBC studio the day of taping, only Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and their mom Kris Jenner were shown in the segment. "Kylie bailed," said one insider. "She was all set to do the interview with her sisters, and she arrived to the location, ready to go. Then she bailed at the last minute because she thought the questions were going to be too tough." When a potentially difficult question did come up — Megyn asked the women about their "haters" — Kendall spoke up for her absent sibling, saying her cosmetics business is "insane" and suggesting anyone would want to see their daughter become as successful as Kylie has. (Last month, Kris Jenner showed Women's Wear Daily documentation proving her youngest daughter's business has done $420 million in sales so far.) Kylie's rep did not respond to the Post when asked to comment.

Justin Timberlake celebrates Jessica Biel's 'Sinner' finale: 'I'm so proud of my wife'
Justin Timberlake is feelin' the love this week — and so are the people closest to him. After wishing his BFF Jimmy Fallon a happy birthday with an adorable, borderline-mushy Instagram post about their bro-ship, JT turned his attention to his wife of four years, Jessica Biel, ahead of the last episode of her well-received new show, "The Sinner." "It's the finale of The Sinner & I'm so proud of my wife," he tweeted on Wednesday, Sept, 20, before quipping, "You could say she killed it. I wouldn't use such an obvious pun, but you could." Although they were initially quiet about their relationship, Justin and Jessica seem to have gotten more comfortable letting the world know how they feel about one another since the arrival of their son Silas in 2015. Case in point: After throwing Jessica a roller skating-themed birthday party in March, Justin shared a photo of himself kissing his lady on the cheek on Instagram. "You make me laugh. You make me smile. You make me LOVE. You make me want to be BETTER," he captioned the shot. "Speaking of, it doesn't get any BETTER than you…," he added. "Now, I know for sure that it's BETTER to be lucky than good. Ask me who the luckiest guy in the world is and I will tell you that you are looking at him." Sniff.

Chrissy Teigen corrects Ivanka Trump's tweet
Don't ya love that meme about "silently correcting your grammar?" Yeah, neither does Chrissy Teigen, particularly when it comes to the Trump family. This week, Chrissy took Ivanka Trump to task when she tweeted about spending time with the newest addition to her fam. "Cuddling my little nephew Luke…the best part of an otherwise incredible day!" she wrote. The "otherwise" in there suggests Ivanka's day was awesome except for the part she spent with Luke. Or, as Chrissy tweeted to to the so-called First Daughter, "'Otherwise' implies you did not like hangin with this baby." Chrissy's comment spawned dozens more comments, including a few defensive tweets from supporters of the Trump family and one opportunity for Chrissy to explain that the word Ivanka was looking for was probably "overall." Another commenter did not dissect the grammar, but rather responded to Ivanka's "I chilled with my nephew today" update by asking for some help with the chronology of the baby hang in reference to Donald Trump's controversial speech about North Korea: "Was this before or after your father basically threatened World War 3?" Ivanka did not reply.
Fergie says her new album is 'emotional,' 'autobiographical'
It's probably not a coincidence that Fergie and Josh Duhamel waited until this week to announce they'd separated earlier this year. Fergie's new album, "Double Dutchess," lands Friday, Sept. 22, and it's full of songs about relationship struggles and self-reflection. While promoting the album in New York on Wednesday, Sept. 20, the singer admitted to the New York Post the album was largely inspired by relationships and experiences from her own past. Speaking to Us Weekly, she also opened up about the effect delving into those feelings for her music had on her. "There's a few emotional songs on this album. I mean, I cry in a couple of the videos, so there's definitely tears that were let out. Two of the emotional songs are 'Love is Pain' [and] ]Save it Till the Morning.' Those are ones that I definitely tear up in the video," she said. "It went deep. A lot of them took very much from autobiographical experiences and the video and visuals got to play with larger than life, movie magic. It's a lot of hard work." When they announced their split, Fergie and Josh gave no reasons as to why they were calling it quits after eight years of marriage. Insiders have pointed to a variety of issues, however, including "trust issues" and a growing distance that ultimately led them to start leading separate lives.
Janet Jackson isn't ready to date again just yet: Report
As Janet Jackson gets back into the groove of touring, she's putting her broken relationship with Wissam Al Mana behind her. That doesn't necessarily mean she's ready to start dating again, though. Responding to a Bossip rumor Janet could be rekindling her romance with Jermaine Dupri, a source confirmed to E! News that Jermaine and Janet are tight but their relationship is platonic. "Jermaine and Janet have remained friends through all these years and never lost touch. They had a period when they broke up and didn't talk for a bit but overcame that and found friendship again," said the source, who added that the pals are discussing some potential new projects. "Jermaine has a crazy love for Janet and they have been speaking more since the breakup. Janet and Jermaine trust each other and they have history," the insider said. As for the singer's love life, the source implied that between Janet's tour, new baby and divorce proceedings, she's "really not in a position to get involved with someone at this time," although she may be up for returning to the dating pool "down the line."
Salma Hayek makes large donation to earthquake aid in Mexico
As the death toll climbs and rescue efforts continue in Mexico following this week's 7.1 magnitude earthquake, Salma Hayek is making an impassioned plea for fans to join her in doing what they can to help. In a post on social media on Wednesday, Sept, 20, the Mexico-born actress pledged to match the first $100,000 of aid donations. She also revealed she has seen first-hand the devastation caused by an earthquake in the nation's capital. "After the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City, I was evacuated from my building.

I am starting a Crowdrise to try to raise money to help families who are going through this nightmare right now in Mexico. I implore to your hearts… to your compassion to help. Anything that you can give will make a big difference. I will match the first $100,000 that are donated."

What Kate Bosworth has learned from being a step-mom
Now that she's a step-mother to her husband Michael Polish's daughter, Kate Bosworth is seeing the world in a slightly new light. "My stepdaughter is just entering her 20s, and I'm reminded of how angst-ridden and horrifying that decade is," the actress and producer recently told Who What Wear magazine (via JustJared). "It's a lot of fun but also just riddled with anxiety. I don't have many regrets, but I do feel like I learned a lot from that decade and have implemented those lessons into my 30s." Among the things she learned when she was younger that she's taking on action on today? Looking to more women with more experience for guidance, both in her life and in her career. "You never know who you're going to bump into in the bathroom at [the Vanity Fair Oscar Party], and a few years ago, I basically attacked [Facebook COO] Sheryl [Sandberg] when I was washing my hands," Kate admitted. "I just said, 'I think you're so amazing, and I'd love to know you. I have so much love for that movie—talk about empowerment!—and I was so happy that was a commonality. We kept in touch after meeting, and I think it's a great example of putting yourself out there and saying, 'I appreciate you and what you're doing.'"
Benedict Cumberbatch addresses refugee backlash
During his 2015 – 2016 "Hamlet" run in London, Benedict Cumberbatch made a habit of discussing the Syrian refugee situation with the audience after the show. He asked people to donate to Save the Children and frequently criticized the British government for not offering to take in more refugees. He caught some flak for that, especially since, as some noted, he hadn't taken in any refugees himself. In a new interview with The Big Issue, he addressed the criticism again and tried to explain his choices. "I got very heated about it on occasions, and I do regret that. But it was a knee-jerk reaction in terms of the refugee crisis – being a new father and seeing a two-year-old child wash up on the beach not dissimilar to the ones I spent my childhood on, and will hopefully take my children to," he said (via Celebitchy). "I don't know if it is worth bringing this up, but being conscious of the magazine I'm talking to – people were saying, 'You've got a home, why don't you house refugees?'" And we did look into it. But we had, then, a very new baby – maybe four or five months old. Maybe people had a point. I understand why some might think I should be housing people instead of complaining about a government not doing it. But I was trying to raise awareness that we can do more as a society. Because I do feel we are able to do more than just recovering bodies." Benedict went on to acknowledge he "got over-excited" on "some nights," but added that since he was able to raise money for Save the Children, he has no regrets.
