Heidi Klum shares new hints about her 2019 Halloween costume insanity
'Tis the season to admire Heidi Klum's devotion to Halloween. And as the newly married "America's Got Talent" host prepares to celebrate her 20th anniversary of epic Halloween parties, she has every intention of blowing your mind with this year's costume. "I'm gonna have a hard time walking," she told People this week, "… and it'll take a really long time." How long, exactly? Oh, just "10 hours," NBD. "[Tom's] is gonna be easier [than mine this year] because last year I felt so bad for him," Heidi, 46, said of the Shrek getup she had custom-made for her then-fiance in 2018. "He had never done this before, and it was harder for him than for me because he had the big belly and the face. I'm used to it, but he was like, 'Oh my god, I'm gonna die! It's so hot!'" At the end of the day, she said "he loved it." Still, she opted to do the heavier costume lifting herself this year. "He's just as nuts as me, but I had to come up with something a little easier for him to wear this time around," Heidi admitted. She added that she's planning to turn her 10-hour-plus costume donning situation into a "a live performance" in the window of the Big Apple's 34th Street Amazon store ahead of her party. "People walking by can see, shop, have lunch and come back, and I'll still be sitting there in that window getting ready," she said. Back in August, Heidi shared another hint about her 2019 Halloween look on Instagram, sharing a clip that showed her in a bra, underwear and heels, crouching with her arms out at her sides as a technician circled her, seemingly taking measurements with a handheld optical scanner. Yeah, time to rethink that sexy unicorn situation you were about to order online …
Is Ben Affleck dating Steve Jobs' widow, Laurene Powell Jobs?
In the wake of Ben Affleck's split from Lindsay Shookus earlier this year, tabloids are already eager to pair the actor up with his next romantic partner. This week, a handful of tabloids reported the actor shared a dinner date with Steve Jobs' billionaire widow, Laurene Powell Jobs at Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Oct. 1. But sources tell Page Six the pair's nearly three-hour outing was likely platonic — and may have even been about business. "They have been friends for a long time now," said one insider. Laurene reportedly done philanthropic work with the Eastern Congo Initiative, which Ben founded, since 2010. According to the Post, Laurene was dating celebrity chef Daniel Humm as of July.

Even Ed Sheeran's tattoo artist questions the singer's body art
Ed Sheeran sparked an uproar on social media in 2015 when he debuted the large lion's face he had tattooed across most of his chest. Fans and press alike griped about the ink and have turned up their noses at some of his subsequent tats. Welp, they're not alone. Turns out even the singer's tattoo artist kinda can't stand some of Ed's body art. "I take the p– out of Ed all the time, when I'm with him, that they are s—," Kevin Paul recently told the Mirror. "They are!" Though Kevin conceded that the 40-plus tats he's put on Ed are all "personal to him," he also admitted inking the guy has been the "best thing to happen to my career and the worst," explaining how taking on Ed as a client shifted his career path. "I was a big massive artist doing 3D work and winning multi awards," he recalled. "And then all of a sudden you end up doing Pingu the Penguin and f—— gingerbread men on pop stars." Unfortunately for Kevin, it seems Ed only plans to continue adding to his odd collection. As he tweeted back in 2015 after what he called the lion "kerfuffle, "If it was black and white saying a clever phrase in a language I can't speak no one would've said anything. It's not the first weird tattoo I've got and it won't be the last, but I like all of them."

Angelina Jolie shimmers in silver as she reunites with Maddox Jolie-Pitt in Japan
Reunion time! At the Los Angeles premiere of her new film, "Maelficent: Mistress of Evil," Angelina Jolie told reporters she was just "two days away from my hug" from her eldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, whom she dropped off at college in South Korea earlier this year. She got that hug — or one of them — on the red carpet at the Japan premiere of the "Maleficent" sequel, which she also attended with her 14-year-old daughter, Zahara. The mom of six also traded her go-to black red-carpet attire for a gorgeous silver, a fringe-bedecked gown that the Daily Mail identified as Ralph & Russo Couture — an appropriately sparkling dress for a sparkling mother-and-son moment.
Robert Pattinson's early fame made him 'self-conscious' in public, 'wild' on set
It's fair to say Robert Pattinson has calmed down a bit since he became famous — and began what we assume will be a long-running stint as a heartthrob — with the 2008 release of "Twilight." Speaking to Esquire UK in the magazine's new cover story, the 33-year-old "Lighthouse" star reflects on what it was like to find the kind of fame he did at such a young age. "For a long time you're very self-conscious in the street," he recalls (via JustJared). "You're hiding a lot, so [on set] you have an excuse to be wild." That wildness played out, he says, in perhaps not the safest ways. "It's like being an adrenaline junkie. And also, when you don't know how to do something, why not just run headfirst into a wall? See what happens [?]" he quips. Looking ahead, Robert's set to star in the next "Batman" film — a fact he admits he's still trying to wrap his brain around. "It's kind of insane," he marvels. "I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I've got it, at all."
Justin Timberlake reacts to celebrity prankster attack: 'Human anklet not included'
Justin Timberlake's appearance at the Louis Vuitton show at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, Oct. 1, was a little more exciting than planned, thanks to TV journalist turned celebrity prankster Vitalii Sediuk, who surprised Justin as he and Jessica Biel arrived by latching onto his ankle. Turns out Justin is fine, though. After the show, he shared photos from the event on Instagram along with a caption that proved he's already moved on. "Last night at @louisvuitton. Human anklet not included. Congrats on the collection @nicolasghesquiere!" the singer wrote. Other celebs who've fallen prey to the now-infamous pranks include Bradley Cooper, America Ferrera and Gigi Hadid, who slammed Vitali in the face with her elbow when he tried to pick her up off the ground in 2016.
Is Lindsay Lohan feuding with one of her 'Masked Singer' contestants?
Here's some Lindsay Lohan gossip, just in time for "Mean Girls Day," Oct. 3, being the day when Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) asks Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) what the date is in the 2004 movie. The mean girl in question here, however, is not a high school student but rather, Lindsay's co-star on the Australian version of "Masked Singer." It seems LiLo's pals think radio host Jackie O is "spreading lies" about Lindsay because she's developed a friendship with Dannii Minogue, who also appears on the show. The lies apparently came in the form of an ousted contestant's appearance on Jackie's show in which she bad-mouthed Lindsay for allegedly holding up production. The Blast's sources say Lindsay did no such thing and blamed the nastiness on Jackie being "jealous" of Lindsay's friendship with Danni. Again, may we humbly remind you none of the parties involved are teenagers … ahem.
Demi Lovato apologizes after free, 'spiritual' trip to Israel
When Demi Lovato traveled to Israel recently, visiting Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem and getting baptized in the Jordan River, she was merely seeking a spiritual experience, courtesy of an expenses-paid offer she was given. She was not showing support for Israel versus Palestine amid the ongoing conflict between the two. That was the gist of a message she shared on her Instagram Story this week, according to Page Six. "I'm extremely frustrated. I accepted a free trip to Israel in exchange for a few posts. No one told me there would be anything wrong with going or that I could possibly be offending anyone. With that being said, I'm sorry if I've hurt or offended anyone, that was not my intention," she explained in the post, which has since been deleted. "Sometimes people present you with opportunities and no one tells you the potential backlash you could face in return," Demi explained. "This was meant to be a spiritual experience for me, NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT and now I realize it hurt people and for that I'm sorry. Sorry I'm not more educated, and sorry for thinking this trip was just a spiritual experience." Demi also acknowledged her decision to go was "against all advice" from her team. "… I'd rather get in trouble for being authentic to myself, than staying quiet to please other people," she said. "I love my fans, all of them, from all over." Demi was born and raised Christian, according to Page Six.
Jennifer Garner on why Halloween 'gets harder' as her kids get older
As Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's kids, Violet, 13, Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7, get older, Halloween becomes more of a challenge — at least for their mom. "It definitely gets harder [as they get older]," Jen told "Entertainment Tonight" this week. "I remember one year when I talked both my girls into dressing up as pigs, and they were so cute! And now they would be like, 'No, mom, oh, my gosh, no!' It's harder, but they're going to be cute, whatever they are." Last year for the spooky holiday, the trio made earth-friendly decorations that looked like Halloween versions of each member of their family, according to Us Weekly. "I have kids that are funny and smart, and I think they're awesome," she told ET. "They change you wholly, and completely and not at all. I'm lucky to have them."
