Jennifer Aniston is celebrating her SAG win for this reason (sorry guys, it's not Brad Pitt)
Jennifer Aniston's sweet reunion with ex-husband Brad Pitt — and shout-out to their history from the stage — may have been among the most memorable moments from the 2020 SAG Awards for pop culture fans. But for Jen, who scored an Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series SAG for her work on "The Morning Show," the night will be forever important for other reasons. On Monday, Jan. 20, after the ceremony, she shared pics from before and after the awards. One showed her lying down in her ride to the event so as not to wrinkle her dress. "Harder than it looks," she joked in the caption. The other showed the same dress draped over the ledge of a tub. Sharing the ledge was her SAG statuette, an award conferred upon her not by critics, a la the Golden Globes, but by other members of the SAG-AFTRA union. That seemed to mean a lot to the star, who captioned the rest of the post, "Somewhere between these two photos, my peers gave me a gift I will cherish and a night I will never forget. Thank you @sagawards, @themorningshow, and our incredible cast and crew. Let's get back to work!"
Beyonce breaks Instagram form with gushing post about Ivy Park launch
In recent years, Beyonce has trained the world to expect a certain distance between the singer and her public (and we're using the royal "her" there). That includes Bey's use of Instagram, which primarily features photos of her alongside either no caption or a simple, identifying phrase like those she used to advertise the Jan. 18 launch date of her Adidas x Ivy Park collaboration. This week, Bey surprised us when she shared some heartfelt emotion in an IG caption to show her gratitude to everyone who helped out with the line's launch — including fans who picked up items from the collection despite some apparently rough shopping conditions. "I want to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible human beings who stood in those long lines in the snow and rain. All the beautiful people who waited in the waiting room online," Bey wrote, sharing a pic of the Adidas grill and the Run DMC-tracked video she shot for the social media campaign. "All of the friends and family who took the time to film videos and dress up in the unboxing. I am humbled, grateful and proud," she continued, giving a nod to the series of videos that showed mostly famous folks who'd been gifted said "big orange box" full of Ivy Park pieces, opening them. "Y'all look so good in your IVY PARK," she added. "I love you deep. B." Celebs who got the boxes include Bey's sister, Solange, her former Destiny's Child cohorts Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, plus Reese Witherspoon, Zendaya, Ashley Graham, Yara Shahidi, Ellen DeGeneres, Missy Elliott, Diplo, Rita Ora, Hailey Bieber, Cardi B, Janelle Monáe, Laverne Cox and Ciara, according to E! News.
Kelly Clarkson responds to Pink's post about aging 'the old fashioned way'
Pink and Kelly Clarkson shared the stage for a performance back in 2017 at the American Music Awards. This week, the singers got back in touch, thanks to a tweet shared by Pink, 40, about aging. "I'm fortunate because I've never really depended on my looks. I've decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face," Pink tweeted on Sunday, Jan. 19 (via People). "So get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling s— at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yasssssssss." The next day, Kelly, 37, replied to the post with her full support and agreement — except for one key part of Pink's plan. "I feel you …. except for, you know, the flying through the air thing 👀," Kelly wrote. "You know what, I'll keep holding it down on the ground for us and you keep the air safe. I've always enjoyed teamwork 💁🏼♀️🤣😜."
Exes Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to release a new Chateau Miraval wine
As recently as last fall, exes Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were reportedly arguing about who would get Château Miraval, the French estate and vineyard they bought in 2008 that's now a successful winemaking operation, produced in collaboration with Marc Perrin. If the bickering has continued, it clearly hasn't interrupted the production of their Miraval wines, though. In a new interview with Wine Spectator, Marc announced the label plans to release a new Rosé Champagne with the region's well-known Rodolphe Péters. "We will create the only Champagne house which only makes Rosé," Marc said. "We are going to try to push the quality of Rosé as far as possible in Champagne." He helpfully added, "We're feeling confident Miraval's new marriage of talents can make it work." Marriage? Talents? Uh, we're feeling confident Marc Perrin knows his way around some entertainment news search trends … The Champagne will be the second product Brad and Angelina have released since their split, the first being 2019's Studio Miraval. The release date has not yet been announced. Angelina filed for divorce from Brad in 2016.

Chris Martin slams autograph hounds after forgetting lyrics
They say no good deed goes unpunished and we're guessing that aphorism ran through Chris Martin's head at least once on Monday, Jan. 20, when he was chased down for autographs after playing a charity set for a prison reform organization. TMZ published video on Tuesday that showed the Coldplay frontman struggling to remember the words during his performance at the Palladium in Los Angeles. He graciously admitted what was happening onstage and gave the audience an apology that was actually quite endearing. he also asked, semi-jokingly, that no one share footage of the flub on YouTube. But that kind of lyrics fudge is often used to jack up what autographed merch hawkers will charge for their questionably earned memorabilia. As they hollered at him, Chris says in the clip that yes, he had "a s—-y gig" but deserved to be treated with more decency. Despite the ugly interaction, Chris ultimately signed their merch and, according to TMZ, was later spotted "storming away."

Taylor Swift reveals her mom, Andrea, has a brain tumor
For years, Taylor Swift has spoken openly about her close relationship with her mom, Andrea Swift. She's also told fans about both parents' battles with undisclosed forms of cancer. Now, it seems her mom is facing the disease again, this time in the form of a brain tumor. In her new cover story for Variety, Taylor revealed things have been extra difficult at home. "The symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor is [sic] nothing like what we've ever been through with her cancer before," she said. "So it's just been a really hard time for us as a family." The singer, who turned 30 last year, has previously shared that her mom was diagnosed with cancer in 2015. It went into remission but in a March 2019 essay for Elle, she wrote that her mom's illness had returned. Speaking to Variety, Taylor explained doctors found the tumor during Andrea's treatment. Asked if that was why the singer will limit her touring in support of "Lover" to four shows in the U.S. plus some European festival dates, she said it is indeed the reason she's not spending the usual nine months on the road for this album. "I mean, we don't know what is going to happen," Taylor explained. "We don't know what treatment we're going to choose. It just was the decision to make at the time, for right now, for what's going on."
Tom Hanks calls his alleged Dr. Oz CBD Oil promo 'false and a hoax'
Is Tom Hanks schilling CBD products for Dr. Oz? In a word, no. On Tuesday, Jan. 21, the Cecil B. DeMille Award winner tweeted a link to a photo of himself and an alleged quote that surfaced on EntertainmentToday. net. It had him singing the praises of Cannapro CBD Oil and shouting out the controversial health expert Dr. Oz. "The advances Dr. Oz has made in the CBD industry are remarkable. I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't had the chance to try it out for myself," the quote read. "After using Cannapro CBD for two weeks I was already feeling like a new me." According to Tom, however, he had nothing to do with the promo. "This is false and an intentional hoax," he tweeted. "I've never said this and would never make such an endorsement. Come on, man! Hanx!" It was almost worth it for the fun some followers had in the comments, though — "Life was like a box of cannabis," indeed.
