Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis try desperately to get Channing Tatum to strip
Sorry, ladies. Channing Tatum does not strip on command, a lesson Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis learned this week when Kristen brought her pal and "Bad Moms" costar, Mila Kunis, out onstage during the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Shopathan fundraiser for [RED], which raises money to fight AIDS and HIV in Africa. Kristen introduced Mila by explaining she was going to tell the audience about a "special product." The product turned out to be a TV — with Channing on it. He was playing an illiterate veterinarian, according to E! News, piquing Kristen and Mila's interest — at first. "It's Channing Tatum!" Kristen exclaimed in mock surprise. "He is pure man candy — and I'm telling you, I have a sweet tooth!" The pair watched Channing for a few moments before Kristen kvetched, "This movie seems serious. I'm worried he won't take his shirt off." Mila was on the same page. "He better take something off!" she said. That's when Channing looked at the pals through the screen, stepping out of his role. "OK, really. I'm a serious actor, OK?" he said, chastising the pair. "All you care about is whether I'm going to take off [my shirt] or show some skin or something." When Mila looked confused and asked if he was talking to Kristen, Channing assured her that he was speaking to them both. "Yeah, I am talking to you ladies. I'm more than just a piece of meat. It's true," he said. "I'm a piece of meat with feelings." Said Kristen: "I suppose there's a lesson here. It's wrong to treat men like sex objects." Mila agreed, chiming in with, "Yeah. No matter how smoking H-O-T they are." Finally, Channing stepped out from backstage in his vet costume. "I forgive you for all the horrible things that you guys said about me. I really do," he said. "Because Forgiveness is what the (RED) Shopathon is all about." Mile begged to differ. No, that's not all that it's about," she suggested before Jimmy's security guard, Guillermo Rodriguez, joined the group and took a selfie with Channing. "You're my favorite actor," Guillermo said. "Now, how about one with your shirt off?" Kristen pretending to be shocked, calling the guard a "horny little devil" before giving her strip request one more try. "No seriously, take it off," she told Channing. The actor pretended to be too offended to continue and marched off the stage as Mila hollered, "A little bit! Just the shoulder!" Already backstage by that point, Channing scolded the ladies one more time, yelling, "I'm not a piece of meat!"
Travis Scott surprises superfan teen battling a brain tumor at Astroworld festival
When Travis Scott took the stage at his Astroworld music festival in Houston on Nov. 17, it was much to the delight of one special superfan who'd traveled with his family from Philadelphia for the show. Teenager Alex Pujols, who's currently being treated at Children's Hospital in the City of Brotherly love for an aggressive brain tumor, was treated to a surprise meeting with Travis backstage before the rapper performed, according to TMZ. The website reports a friend of Swizz Beatz told him about Alex's medical situation and his love of Travis' music, so the producer went to work helping the teen meet him. Alex's family reportedly traveled with him and his brother to Houston for the show but were as surprised as Alex was when the trip turned out to include a chance to meet the rapper. Travis' girlfriend — or wife, depending on which fansites you believe — Kylie Jenner, was in good spirits the day of the festival, too. "Only the people around you really know how hard you work," she posted on Instagram that day, sharing a photo of Travis and their daughter, Stormi. "I love to watch you make all your dreams come true," she continued. "Your first festival. We're so proud of you. We love you."
Megyn Kelly congratulates Michelle Wolf after slamming her for White House Correspondents' Dinner routine
'Tis the season to let bygones be bygones. With Thanksgiving just around the corner — and arguably fewer people in her corner, thanks to the blackface comments that got her fired from "Today" — Megyn Kelly made an unexpectedly friendly connection with comic Michelle Wolf over the weekend. The New York Post reports the former NBC anchor celebrated her 48th birthday with her husband and some pals at the Comedy Cellar in New York City on Saturday, Nov. 17. The Post's sources say Megyn and friends were there to check out Ryan Reiss, who'd appeared on her show in the past. It turned out the group was also on hand for a set from Michelle, whose controversial White House Correspondents' Dinner routine became a point of contention for Megyn, who called Michelle "crass" after the event, slamming the comic's remarks about Sarah Huckabee Sanders. After Michelle's set at the Comedy Cellar, however, Megyn reportedly "went over to congratulate" Michelle, in spite of the fact that she once called Megyn "conniving" on "The Daily Show," telling viewers she thought Megyn was "trying to manipulate the American public." Instead of trading barbs, the women "chatted cordially for about 30 seconds," according to the Post's insiders. Two days later, when the White House Correspondents' Association announced that instead of having a comedian speak at the 2019 dinner, as they've done for decades, the 2019 featured speaker would be political historian and author Ron Chernow, Michelle seemed pleased to have shaken things up as much as she did at this year's dinner. "The @whca are cowards," she tweeted. "The media is complicit. And I couldn't be prouder."
Chrissy Teigen reveals she has a serious problem with one body part
Chrissy Teigen stopped by "Ellen" this week to promote her new cookbook, "Cravings: Hungry for More" and the upcoming holiday special she shot with John Legend, "A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy." Somehow, things got off track for a but though, when the subject of feet came up. Describing her own feet as "Asian jungle feet that were meant to climb trees," the model and cookbook author told Ellen DeGeneres she has a serious thing about her most "horrible" body part. Chrissy even admitted she used to have a clause in her Sports Illustrated contracts that ensured photos would not show her feet. "John always says if I die — this is a terrible story already …," she joked (via Today),…" all he has to do in the morgue, instead of lifting up the sheet on the face, he'll just do it the other way and he can tell by my feet." Finally, Ellen flashed a photo of Chrissy that showed her feet on the screen behind them. "They are retouched there, as per contract," Chrissy deadpanned, adding, "You know how people do their butt or their face? I just go straight foot."
Nicole Kidman reflects on her insecurities about 'Big Little Lies'
Nicole Kidman may have an Oscar and an Emmy under her belt, but that doesn't mean she's free of self-doubt when it comes to her acting. In Variety's new cover story, the "Big Little Lies" star says she actually thought she performed poorly in one of the most memorable and important scenes for her character in the HBO series' first season. "When I saw the therapy scene, which people really responded to, I thought I was terrible. And everyone was like, 'No, no!'"said Nicole, whose character, Celeste, begins coming to terms with her husband, Perry's abusive nature in the scene. " I think it was because I felt too exposed and vulnerable. It was probably too much for me to see," she explains. When the show returns in 2019, Nicole and her castmates, including her co-executive producer, Reese Witherspoon, will welcome Meryl Streep as Celeste's mother-in-law. Speaking to Variety, Nicole marveled at the fact that Meryl actually emailed Reese after "Big Little Lies" won six Golden Globes. "[Meryl] goes, 'I suppose now I have to join you.' And we were like, 'What?' The two of us were just shocked," Nicole recalled. "There was no script when Streep signed on. She hadn't even read it. That's how much she wanted to support us." Meryl's addition also renewed some of Nicole's anxiety about her performance. "You're acting opposite the great one," she said. "I get nervous anyway — but to be opposite her and not want her to think, 'Who is this amateur?' And also, we want to deliver a series for her that she's great in. Reese and I were like, 'We want this for her and for the other women.' They have much stronger roles in the second one." Asked if she could see the show, which was initially supposed to be a mini-series, making it to a Season 3, Nicole said: "I think it would be hard to get the whole group together. But we would love to do it."
Is Lindsay Lohan sliding into Tyga's DMs?
Because most Lindsay Lohan news these days seems to be of the super random variety … It seems when Lindsay's not busy with her eponymous Greek clubs or offering her unsolicited human trafficking rescue services to passers-by, she's developed a habit of flirting with Tyga on social media. That's according to Hollywood Life, which claims to have an exclusive scoop on the crush the actress allegedly has on Kylie Jenner's ex, Tyga. "Lindsay loves the whole bad boy thing Tyga has going on, and she's pretty much addicted to his Insta feed. She's had a thing for Tyga for ages," says the insider. "Lindsay sent a couple of flirty DMs to Tyga recently, but he really doesn't seem all that in to her, much to Lindsay's dismay," the source continued. "The whole thing was a bit of a joke to her, but, she's always thought he's super hot and she loves his music, too. She has a thing for rappers and she's feeling a bit lonely." No response as of yet from Lindsay's rep, but Hollywood Life points out Lindsay's been known to comment on Tyga's selfies — sparking encouragement from fans.

"You might not even understand how often just the image of you creates young people who want to be filmmakers every single day," Jonah said from the stage after telling the room he grew up with a picture of the legendary director on his wall (via the New York Post). "As far as I'm concerned that's the coolest thing in the entire world. Thank you for just existing, because I am only up here because you did what you did." Leo, who worked with Jonah and Martin on "The Wolf of Wall Street," recalled being 15 and just beginning to act when his dad took him to see "Goodfellas" and told him, "This is the epitome of modern filmmaking. This is someone who you may be lucky enough one day to work with, and when it comes to directors, Martin Scorsese is where the bar is set.'" Leo went on to share how he "made it a goal, I made it a relentless ambition to work alongside the master …" Robert, meanwhile, whose relationship with the director goes back decades, said, "Marty's gift for friendship is directly related to his many gifts for filmmaking." In particular, he said his longtime pal has "a giant heart that understands and embraces every character he helps us create, and every story he tells."
