Having played several gay characters on film, Stanley Tucci has no issue with straight actors playing someone with a different sexuality. "Obviously, I believe that's fine," he said on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. Stanley, who is straight, played gay characters in the 2006's "The Devil Wears Prada" and 2020's "Supernova." "I am always very flattered when gay men come up to me and talk about [my role in] The Devil Wears Prada or they talk about Supernova, and they say that, 'It was just so beautiful,' you know, 'You did it the right way," he said. "Because often it's not done the right way." In weighing on the hot-button topic, the "Hunger Games" star said actors are malleable and able to play different characters. "An actor is an actor is an actor," he protested. "You are supposed to play different people. You just are. That's the whole point of it."
Responding to rash of concert incidents
Try and die? While bemoaning a recent lack of concert etiquette, Adele issued a threat to fans who attempt to throw things on stage. During her Las Vegas residency show, the Grammy winner asked, "Have you noticed how people are forgetting f****** show etiquette at the moment and just throwing s*** onstage? Have you seen that?" Just last week, Bebe Rexha required stitches after a fan threw a cell phone at her face during a show; a few days later Kelsea Ballerini was hit in the face with a rogue, airborne bracelet; in London, a fan tossed her mother's ashes on stage while Pink performed; over the past weekend, a sex toy was chucked at Lil Nas X. Adele wasn't about to suffer the same fate. "I f****** dare you, I dare you to throw something at me," she told her crowd. "I'll f****** kill you." Adele means business!
He's had enough. Kevin Costner's estranged wife has overstayed her welcome in their family home and he wants her out by next week, new court documents state. Although a prenuptial agreement requires Christine Baumgartner to vacate the property within 30 days of a split, she has refused. The "Yellowstone" star's lawyers said Christine "grasps at straws with one baseless argument after another," which prevents the actor from residing solo in the home. The documents, obtained by People, said Kevin "respectfully requests that Christine be ordered to vacate his separate property residence forthwith and no later than July 13, 2023." The way Kevin sees it, he's just giving his ex what she wants, as she's the one who filed for divorce in early May. "For Kevin, it's pretty cut-and-dried," an insider told Us Weekly recently. "Christine wanted this split, so she should abide by the terms of their prenup [stating that she] had 30 days to move out after filing for divorce. This could be a bitter court battle. Kevin's a man of strong conviction and stubborn to the bone."
Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark rushed her 2-year-old daughter to the ER after a scary medical emergency. The former "Vanderpump Rules" stars posted a video of Hartford Charlie Rose, 2, breathing heavy while sleeping. "Took her to the ER around 6:00 am. She has some breathing issues, possibly high asthma and lots of mucus in her lungs and a high fever," Beau posted on Instagram. "She's on her second 'breathing face thing machine,' with something that will open her lungs up more. Now we're just waiting, hoping this works the second time." After six hours at the hospital, the family returned home. "Her little belly breathing is what everyone was worried about," he explained. "So she's going to be on albuterol for the next two days with this breathing thing. But we might have to go back again tonight if she gets worse again." Stassi echoed much of her husband's statement while posting about their daughter, too, penning that it was a "long scary day at the hospital." The tot is "such a little solder," Stassi said on her Instagram Story.
Michael Jordan is hoping his son's romance with Larsa Pippen is in the fourth quarter and nearly over. Marcus Jordan, 32, began dating the "Real Housewives of Miami" star, 48, earlier this year. The romance caught much attention because of both the age difference and because Larsa was previously married to Michael Jordan's longtime teammate Scottie Pippen. On July 2, a photographer saw Michael and asked whether he approves of his son's relationship with Larsa. The basketball great and former team owner gave a one word, easy-to-comprehend answer. "No," he replied. Interestingly, just last month Marcus told Us Weekly that his family was coming around on the romance. "They're warming up to it," he said. "We're super private as a family, but they know I'm an adult. They trust that I can navigate that universe. But it's definitely been a learning curve for sure."
On the heels of Kyle Richards' separation from her husband of 27 years, fans are wondering if the reality TV star's relationship with country singer Morgan Wade played a role. Kyle and Morgan have grown very, very close over the past 18 months. Whereas Kyle's estranged husband, Mauricio Umansky, has sparingly appeared on her social media in 2023, Morgan is often included in public posts. Bravo fans are beginning to suspect that Kyle and the critically acclaimed singer are more than just friends. "I guess you ain't even hiding your relationship anymore," one person commented on Kyle's Instagram. Another said, "She's telling us without telling us." A third said, "You have a girlfriend now?" Having met in February 2022, the women have been fairly inseparable. Not only have Kyle and Morgan traveled together and met each other's families, the women have recently been wearing what appear to be matching rings. Kyle and Morgan also have matching heart tattoos, and Page Six said Morgan got a "K" tattooed on her inner elbow within the last year. In addition, Kyle's half-sister, Kathy Hilton, recently alluded to a "secret" between Morgan and the former child actress. Still, Kyle and Mauricio haven't completely pulled the plug on their marriage. On Monday, July 3, they issued a joint statement to deny reports that they're "divorcing." "We have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously," the duo said. People magazine reports that Kyle and Mauricio are still living together in the same home.
