Paris Jackson and Cara Delevingne look very much together in new IG pic
Looks like Paris Jackson and Cara Delevingne are determined to keep us guessing about their relationship. On Wednesday, April 11, Paris shared an Instagram Story that showed her hugging Cara close, a smiley face subbed in for the caption (via the Daily Mail). Judging from the post, things could be back to the seeming romantic bliss the two sealed with a very non-platonic kiss and embrace during a double date with Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song last month. That's a very different vibe from the one Paris gave off last week about her 25-year-old friend and fashion industry colleague. After sharing a PDA-packed dinner date with promoter Andrei Gillott at Sushi Park in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 3, Paris celebrated her 20th birthday with friends and family at nearby HYDE Sunset. Cara did not appear to have attended the bash. No pics of the two surfaced from throughout Paris' big day, either. The pair reportedly hit it off after meeting at the 2017 MTV Movie and TV Awards. In the months that followed, they clasped paws as they left a nightclub in London and reportedly checked out Italy and Prague together. "They're both really into their music and have been spending nights singing and jamming on the guitar," a source told the Daily Mail over the holidays. "It's early days, and Cara doesn't really have time for a proper relationship due to her non-stop filming commitments with 'Carnival Row,' but there's no denying there's a spark."
Gwyneth Paltrow heads to her Cabo bachelorette with Cameron Diaz
Gwyneth Paltrow has said that because she and her ex, Chris Martin, eloped, she's feeling like a first-time bride as she gears up to marry Brad Falchuk. "I've never had a wedding before," she told People in January. "So even though I'm 45, I sort of feel like a 21-year-old." And like any other 21-year-old who's about to get hitched, Gwyneth is doing some pre-wedding celebrating with a bachelorette party, complete with longtime pals including Cameron Diaz, seen her with Gwyneth back in 2011. According to People, the bash takes place this weekend in Mexico. "Gwyneth arrived in Cabo Wednesday with a group of girlfriends, including Stella McCartney, for her bachelorette party," a source tells the magazine."She looked ecstatic. They have many fun activities planned, including pool time, spa and fun dinners." Insiders tell Page Six Cameron handled the travel arrangements, booking a private jet to shuttle the bride plus 11 friends to Mexico. "It's kind of fun to talk about with my girlfriends," the GOOP founder previously told People of the wedding plans. "They send me pictures of dresses — they're as excited about it as I am."

Hugh Jackman supports bullied PA girl after seeing her heartbreaking video
After years of being bullied at school, a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl took matters into her own hands and made a video she hoped would, as she says via notecards in the video, "stop bullying … not just for me, for other kids [too]." Hugh Jackman was among the hundreds of thousands of people who watched Cassidy Werner tell her story of being hit, spat on, threatened and told she should kill herself. At one point, the stoic little girl holds up a card that says, "I feel so alone." But she's not alone — a fact the "Wolverine" star told Cassidy in a post when he shared her video on his own Facebook page. "Hi Cassidy … I'm Hugh. I want you to know that you're loved, special and smart," the star wrote. "You're strong, funny and beautiful, both inside and out. BULLYING IS NOT OK. Please never stop asking for help. You will find it from people and places you never thought possible. I'm your friend." Cassidy's dad tells ABC he didn't know the bullying had gotten as bad as it had until he saw his daughter's video on her Facebook page. It was taken down but Cassidy's mom later shared it in the hopes of keeping her daughter's message alive. Since then, it had 2 million views and has been shared more than 20,000 times as of this week. Said Cassidy's dad: "Never in a million years did I think it would have this many shares and comments. Cass has been getting comments from all over the world and it's so much positive stuff. Words cant explain how grateful I am for it." He added that he hopes more families will open up a dialogue about bullying as a result of his daughter's experience.
Bella Thorne says posting on Instagram basically paid for her house
Bella Thorne's Instagram revelation that she was sexually and physically abused throughout her childhood wasn't just courageous — it was smart, too. Like, five-figures smart. In a new mini-documentary for Vogue called "Inside the Life of Bella Thorne" (via TooFab) Bella explains that her Instagram presence is "100% a job to me." Acknowledging that she earns $65,000 for a regular IG post and $10,000 to $20,000 when she shares an Instagram Story or Snapchat, the 20-year-old actress says she started out in Hollywood with "$200 in my bank account;" posting on social media earned her enough to buy a house. "It's all from social media," she says.
Will Meghan Markle wear Burberry on her wedding day?
After Meghan Markle — an avowed fan of the Erdem — posed for her engagement photos in a look designed by Ralph & Russo, royal bet-makers in the U.K. are putting their money on odds the same house will create the actress' wedding gown. Blogger LaineyGossip has another guess — Burberry. British fashion icon Kate Moss has had a long (if on-off) working relationship with the brand, stars like Sienna Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch frequently snag front row seats to the label's runway shows and Meghan's been spotted in Burberry herself a number of times recently. Perhaps more importantly, Lainey points out, is the fact that Meghan's beloved Erdem is closely associated with her soon-to-be sister-in-law, Duchess Kate. British designer Henry Holland threw his vote Burberry's way this week, too, suggesting the gown could be designed by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey as his "final bow" for the label before he leaves his long-held post at the end of 2018. Whichever designer Meghan goes with, royal watchers are predicting it will be couture and potentially over-the-top. Meghan and Prince Harry are set to wed May 19.
George and Amal Clooney dine with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor
Because when you're married to one of the most respected human rights lawyers in the world, sometimes date night means dinner with a Supreme Court justice. George Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney reunited with Sonia Sotomayor this week for dinner at Stephen Starr's Le Coucou in New York City, according to Page Six. The get-together was likely pegged to Amal's long-running working relationship with the U.S. Supreme Court Justice, whom Amal clerked for when she was in law school at NYU. "When I was a junior lawyer, she was incredible to watch in action in court, how she had so many cases in her head and firing questions at these lawyers standing before her," Amal said previously. "I was the most junior and irrelevant person in her chamber and she was very charming and very balanced." Though it's unclear what the heavy-hitters discussed, the Clooneys' massive donation to March For Our Lives and and show of support for the student organizers seems like a good fit for the subjects Justice Sotomayor's been discussing with students as she tours the country giving talks on the importance of civic engagement. The three were last spotted dining together in the Big Apple in 2015.
Tristan Thompson booed at Cavaliers game the night before his new daughter's arrival
Khloe Kardashian isn't the only one who reportedly "went ballistic" about photos that seem to show her boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, cheating on her just days before she gave birth to their first child. When Tristan was shown on the big screen as his Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against the New York Knicks in the last regular-season game on Wednesday, April 11, some dubious fans booed loudly, according to E! News and other outlets. A Fox Sports reporter also tweeted that Tristan's name wasn't announced when he came off the bench and into the game, implying someone — whether him or his team's PR folks — were downplaying his visibility. (The Cavs ended up losing 110-98.) Khloe, meanwhile, allowed the NBA star in the delivery room when their daughter arrived, according to reports.
Sophie Turner on Joe Jonas engagement: 'I found my person'
Sophie Turner is still trying to wrap her brain around the fact that Joe Jonas proposed and she said "yes." "I'm still like, Holy s—-! I'm engaged," she admits in the new issue of Marie Claire. The 22-year-old goes on to explain where her relationship fits into her life's bigger picture, which since 2011 has included being praised for her work on HBO's addictive "Game of Thrones" series. "There's this weird misconception that being married is the greatest thing that'll ever happen to you," she says. "But I've always found that my career is something I work for, and when I achieve something, there's a sense that this is the greatest thing I'll do in my life." She adds: "It's lovely to be engaged. Not like I achieved anything, but I found my person, like I'd find a house that I love and want to stay in forever. There's a sense of peace that comes with finding your person. But there's a drive that comes with your career." Sophie and Joe announced their engagement in October; the final season of "GOT" returns next year.
Neil Patrick Harris dropped six figures on a Haunted Mansion painting
Here's hoping Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's 7-year-old twins are good with Disneyland's spookier attractions … 'cause it sounds like a trip to the theme park with NPH means some serious time logged in the Haunted Mansion. When Neil stopped by "The Late, Late Show" this week, a chat about Season 2 of "A Series of Unfortunate Events" ended up with the actor copping to a serious memorabilia collecting habit — and the Haunted Mansion seems to be at the center of it. "I love stuff from the Haunted Mansion. The Haunted Mansion in Disney is, like, my favorite thing ever," he admitted (via E! News). "It just fits into my Scooby-Doo/Murder Mystery wheelhouse. And so I try and acquire as many things that are from the actual Haunted Mansion as possible." No matter the cost, apparently. "There was an auction in L.A. a couple years ago, and I bid on —and won—one of those Haunted Mansion stretching portraits. You know in the first room when you go in and they say, 'Is this haunted room actually stretching or is it your imagination?' I got one of the original stretching portraits. It's a bearded guy and he's in boxer shorts and he's standing on a TNT barrel!" he said. "I just wanted to get it and I spent way too much money on it, because I was just bidding on an app. I won't say how much, but it was way too much." E! did some digging and revealed "too much" was $175, 200.
Robert De Niro: 'I can't wait for Donald Trump to get impeached'
Since Donald Trump's inauguration in 2017, a slew of Hollywood A-listers have become increasingly vocal about their opposition to the president. Robert De Niro's taken his sentiment about issues like the White House's stance on climate change way beyond, Twitter, too. He slammed the administration at a recent world summit in Dubai and last month assured a Los Angeles audience at an event for a higher education advocacy group that he'll continue speaking out whenever he has the chance "as long as our country's leadership is so appalling and so corrupt." He's already made good on that promise at an event promoting the Tribeca Film Festival this week. Despite being told the festival's founder wouldn't be discussing anything other than the festival, a New York Daily News reporter asked Robert to weigh in on the impeachment whispers that have grown louder in the past week. The News asked something along the lines of whether Robert thought it was fun to see the president and his team mired in scandal. "No, it doesn't make me happy," he said with a laugh. Asked if he hoped an impeachment was on the horizon, the Oscar-winner replied, "I hope so," before joking, "when, when?" He added: "It ain't over till it's over. I can't wait for him to get impeached." The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off in New York City April 18.
