Justin Theroux jokes about tabloid versions of his life with Jennifer Aniston
If you were wondering what makes Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's relationship tick, Justin shared some insight with Rhapsody magazine. In a nutshell? They're a perfect team. The actor and writer acknowledged he was looking forward to having time off after the final season of "the Leftovers," which returns April 16, so he chill out and enjoy his wife's company. "Marriage makes the small things much smaller and the big things small," he said. "You have an ally. It's good to have someone have your back." As for the constant surge of tabloid headlines suggesting the two are on the outs — among various other would-be life-changing situations — Justin takes them all with a grain of salt. "I think it would be funny to do a compilation of those headlines," he says. "Let's assume these characters we play in the tabloids are real people. I would love to take them to a shrink and have them analyzed. Like, are these people insane? Yes, they fight every day, they're constantly getting divorced, they're hoarding children at this point. Imagine what those people would actually be like! They'd be f—— bananas! They'd be the most bipolar people on the planet. Constantly storming in and storming out! Devastated! Crying! Rage! Someone should give a clinical diagnosis of one year in our lives. It would be super funny. What medication would you give these people to help them out?" Of course, the real Jen and Justin don't appear to need meds — just a good sense of humor. And plenty of trips to Cabo.
Taylor Swift's Goldwyn home is officially a historic landmark
Taylor Swift is getting a little tax relief just in time for this year's filing deadline. According to the Daily Mail , the Beverly Hills Cultural Heritage Commission approved the singer's application to make her mansion on Laurel Lane a Local Historic Landmark. As such, Taylor can apply for tax relief thanks to the renovations she's been making to the home, which she bought in 2015 for $25 million. The home was built in 1934 by studio legend Samuel Goldwyn.
Katey Sagal: 'Married … With Children' was 'misogynistic'
Thirty years after "Married … With Children" debuted, Katey Sagal, who played Peg Bundy, is opening about the negative aspects of the show — namely, the fact that not everyone saw the satire element at work in the plot. Speaking to AOL (via Us Weekly), Katey elaborated on some of the points she makes in her new memoir, "Grace Notes: My Recollections." "It was a very misogynistic show," she admitted. 'It was when I really, clearly understood that my job as an actor was to interpret the material. It's not necessarily my belief system. My belief system has nothing to do with being an actor. You know, I was hired to play a part … The women were portrayed completely exploited on that show. That was part of Al Bundy's thing — he liked hot women, and they showed them all the time. And so, people would ask me questions like, 'Is this what you think? I mean, how can you be on a show like this?' And I was really clear that I don't believe in censorship, and I also believe that it's my job as an actor to interpret the material — it's not my belief. If you're asking me, do I think women should be portrayed in a misogynistic way, in an exploited way, of course I don't think that. But playing Peg Bundy had nothing to do with what I thought. That was my job." She continued: ""Suddenly, it dawned on us that this is not just a satire to everybody. Some people are really, truly relating to this, and that's when I would get these very serious questions about a show that was really only meant to be funny. It was meant to be funny and to entertain and to laugh at ourselves. And I always got it as that, but some people took it really seriously."
Cuba Gooding defends himself on Sarah Paulson skirt-lifting incident
Following the uproar Cuba Gooding Jr. incited when he lifted up sarah Paulson's skirt during a PaleyFest panel in Los Angeles last month, the actor is clarifying what happened with People. "I have two sons in college … and I say to them, 'Guys, the internet, it's a beast. It's an information highway without regulation. Any image you put on there can be interpreted any way it wants to," he explained. "I said to my sons again, I said, 'The only thing you can do is represent your moral compass and who you are. Because images are going to be out there without your control, so continue standing in your integrity.' I love the lady that is Sarah Paulson. We have a banter like brother and sister, which is how the spirit of that whole panel was. Yet that image was taken out to represent some kind of sexual misconduct, and that wasn't my intent. The first person, when I heard about the fervor, I called Sarah, I said, 'I love you, I see you as my sister,' and she said, 'I feel the same way about you.' And so I let it go." Although Cuba and Sarah seemed to get along fine during the panel after the skirt situation, the actor has come under fire in the past for getting too handsy with women.
That time Helen Hunt left a love note on Rick Springfield's car
When Helen Hunt was just 19 — and Rick Springfield was playing Dr. Noah Drake on "General Hospital" — she discovered the '80s heartthrob was shooting on a studio lot right by the one where she was working. So she did what any sane 19-year-old at the time would have done. "I was madly in love with Rick," she admitted this week on "Watch What Happens Live" (via Vulture). "I left a note on his car. I left it on his windshield," she explained. Sadly, the move did not lead true love. "… Somehow he managed to not call me," she marveled, laughing. "I was so in love with him you don't understand."
Scarlett Johansson: Ivanka Trump is 'cowardly' for not addressing important issues
Scarlett Johansson isn't backing down on the joke she made on "Saturday Night Live" while playing Ivanka Trump recently. In fact, she feels Ivanka's response made things worse. The skit involved an ad for a perfume called "Complicit," whose tagline was, "[it's] the fragrance for the woman who can stop all this … but won't." Ivanka, Donald Trump's daughter and now, the Special Assistant to the President, later took issue with the skit, telling CBS, "I hope to make a positive impact. I don't know what it means to be complicit, but, you know, I hope time will prove that I've done a good job." Scarlett's not having it, though. "It was really baffling. You can't have it both ways," the actress said at the Women in the World Summit on Thursday, April 6, according to Us Weekly. "If you take a job as a public advocate, then you have to advocate publicly." She went on to question Ivanka's role. "How old-fashioned, this idea that behind a great man is a great woman. What about being in front of that person or next to that person?" she asked. " … Powerful women often get concerned with this idea that they're going to be seen in this unforgiving light.… It's so uninspired and actually really cowardly. And I was so disappointed by that interview she gave yesterday. … She has an opportunity to make a big impact just by being vocal," she said. "She's very well spoken, smart and intelligent woman and engaging. It baffles me."
