Olivia Newton-John's skintight 'Grease' outfit could raise more than $200,000 for her cancer center
Attention, wanna-be Pink Ladies: Costume pieces Olivia Newton-John wore in "Grease" are headed to the auction block this weekend to raise money for the actress' cancer wellness center in Australia, according to CNN. Caveat emptor, though … only wanna-be Pink Ladies with access to large piles of extra cash (and ridiculously tiny waists) will probably find much in the way of buyable looks. The black leather jacket and skintight black pants Olivia wore as Sandy in the 1978 cult classic movie's "You're the One That I Want" finale scene, for example, is expected to get between $100,000 and $200,000 when it comes up for sale at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles on Saturday, Nov. 2. "The pants have a broken zip," Olivia, 71, recently told Reuters, "and I had to be stitched into them because they were made in the '50s." Other pieces in the 500-plus-item collection Olivia put together for the fundraiser will reportedly include the original "Grease" script (valued at $4,000), the pink dress Olivia wore to the movie's Los Angeles premiere (valued at $3,000-$5,000), a custom "Pink Ladies" jacket the movie's cast and crew gave Olivia as a parting gift, as well as pieces unrelated to the movie like dresses she wore while touring in support of her record-breaking 1981 hit album, "Physical." In 2017, Olivia revealed she'd been diagnosed with cancer for the third time. She opened the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in 2012.
Tim McGraw reveals the comment that inspired his fitness journey
Over the past few years, Tim McGraw's gotten so serious about fitness, he's transformed himself into a meme-spawning, pulse-spiking heartthrob. Turns out, it was one comment from one little girl that inspired him to get in shape. That little girl was his daughter, Gracie, who mentioned back in 2008 that her dad looked "big on the screen" when she saw him in "Four Christmases," according to Men's Health. "I got out of it for a while," he said of his exercise regime. "I was in the prime of my career, and I wasn't capitalizing on it." He changed that by walking in the morning, then kicking that up to 20-minute morning runs before he eventually designed his own workout, which he now shares regularly with fans. "I don't really get tired of training," he told the magazine. "There's such a feeling of accomplishment that comes from the feeling of being my age and still being at the top of my game."

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend's son is obsessed with the family's Swiffer
Way to start 'em early on the house chores, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend! This week, in a ridiculously cute post on Instagram, Chrissy showed off the new "toy" her 17 month-old son has become fascinated with. "Not an ad," she warned followers, sharing a photo of Miles Stephens holding up a Swiffer in one hand, "… but he will find this thing ANYWHERE we go and if you take it away he will freak the f–k out." Clad in overalls, tiny flip-flops and a bandana, the toddler can be seen gripping the massive dusting tool looking quizzically up at the camera, as if someone — possibly his mom or his dad, John — is considering removing it from his little paw. As E! News points out, Chrissy's fans kinda lost it on the cuteness factor, chiming in to gush about how "absolutely adorable" the little guy is. "May I have your baby in my house please," Irina Shayk asked. Another astutely noted: "You and John made an adorable little human."

Reese Witherspoon started producing because of a 'terrible' script she once read
As a producer, Reese Witherspoon has been behind two of the most talked-about new series on TV, "Big Little Lies" and "The Morning Show," which premieres Friday, Nov. 1, on Apple TV+. In a chat with Jimmy Fallon on the Tuesday, Oct. 29, edition of "The Tonight Show," she explained that it was little more than a bad script and the knowledge actresses wanted to work on the script's project in spite of its poor writing that launched her producing career. "You know, I read a really crappy script. And it got me so mad," she recalled (via the Daily Mail). "I was like 'This is the worst script I've ever read in my entire life.' It was like eight years ago. And I was like, 'I don't want to do it.'" She called her agent, told her she refused to take the part and added, "this is terrible … it's like, the girlfriend [role], she was dumb and she had no point," Reese told Jimmy. "And my agent said to me, "Every woman in town wants this part.' And I thought, 'If this is the kind of stuff that's in Hollywood, like I have to start making my own stuff.'" By 2012, she'd launched her production company, Pacific Standard. Her Hello Sunshine media company followed in 2016 and is among the production companies behind "The Morning Show," on which Reese and the show's other main star, Jennifer Aniston, both serve as executive producers.
Taylor Swift recalls being slut-shamed as a young musician ahead of AMA Artist of the Decade honor
Taylor Swift has one more reason to be thankful at Thanksgiving this year: On Nov. 24, the singer and songwriter will be named Artist of the Decade at the American Music Awards, where she's also set to break Michael Jackson's 24-trophy record for AMA wins. As Taylor told Zane Lowe in a Beats 1 interview last week, though, her life in the spotlight has not always been so positive. She released her first album at age 16, she recalled, and felt that because her personal life was under the microscope and her lyrics often dealt with breakups, the public perception was often that her "songwriting was, like, a trick rather than a skill and a craft." It was essentially the pop star version of "slut-shaming," and she quickly realized it was an unfair double standard applied to women in music but not to men. "I don't think people understand how easy it is to infer that someone who's a female artist or a female in our industry is somehow doing something wrong by wanting love, wanting money, wanting success," she said (via People). "Women are not allowed to want those things the way that men are allowed to want them."
Keanu Reeves' face, name used to sell tickets to event he knew nothing about
What may or may not be a real anti-poverty group called Global Charity Initiative reportedly used Keanu Reeves' name, image and alleged agreement to host their fundraising event in Los Angeles last weekend as part of an apparent scam to sell expensive tickets to the gala. Page Six reports the organization featured Keanu's face on its invite, promoted his (seemingly invented) involvement with the bash on its social media and auctioned off a painting of him at the gala. Meanwhile, Keanu was shopping at Whole Foods, according to a Twitter user who posted about the sighting right as the event was taking place. Tickets to the supposedly Keanu-hosted affair reportedly ran as high as $1,000 a pop. "He knew nothing about the event and has no affiliation with this organization whatsoever. And they used his image without permission," the actor's rep told the Post. Stars who did attend included "Spy City" actress Eugenia Kuzmina, who thought she was giving Keanu an award but split because something "felt off," and Chadwick Boseman. A source told Page Six he "left after five minutes." As of Wednesday, Oct. 30, a rep for the event had not commented.
Helena Bonham Carter gushes about new beau, role on 'The Crown,' says she's 'never been happier or more fulfilled'
Helena Bonham Carter was bestowed with the British Icon Award at the Harper's Bazaar Women of the Year event in London this week. And as she told the magazine's U.K. division, she's as happy and satisfied as ever, both because of her relationship with writer Rye Dag Holmboe, 32, and her role as Princess Margaret on "The Crown." "You break up, you grieve, you get bored of grieving, and then you finally move on," said Helena, 53, referencing the end of her long partnership with Tim Burton. "I'm very happy with someone else. It's been a bit of unexpected magic in my life," she said (via Us Weekly). Her career is clearly still moving full-steam ahead, too, something she didn't see coming given her age. "I don't think I've ever been happier or more fulfilled," she mused. "This huge blooming of television means character-driven stories, so there's a lot of choice and a lot of work. When I was young, you were considered 'older' over 30."
Alex Trebek says he wishes he'd recognized pancreatic cancer symptoms sooner in new PSA
As Alex Trebek continues to fight stage 4 pancreatic cancer, he's using his platform to spread awareness about the disease in the hopes others can benefit from his hindsight. This week, the "Jeopardy!" host released a public service announcement in partnership with the World Pancreatic Cancer Coalition. The video features Alex sharing scary statistics — pancreatic cancer, he says, is "the only major cancer with a five-year survival rate in the single digits" — and telling viewers a bit about the symptoms he hadn't recognized prior to his diagnosis. "I wish I had known sooner that the persistent stomach pain I experienced before my diagnosis was a symptom of pancreatic cancer," he says (via CNN). "Other common symptoms can include mid back pain, unexplained weight loss, new onset diabetes and the yellowing of the skin or eyes." Looking ahead to World Pancreatic Cancer Day on Nov. 21, 2019, Alex urged others to wear purple in recognition about the need for more awareness about the deadly disease — and to help him tell others more about it on social media.
Shia LaBeouf gets candid about the 'deep shame' he felt after hitting rock bottom
Two years after he was arrested for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness in an incident that involved him spewing racist slurs, Shia LaBeouf is confident that was very much his "bottom." He reflected on what happened and why — and the changes he's made in his behavior since — in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via ET) for the outlet's Awards Chatter podcast. "[I felt] a kind of shame, deep shame," he said, adding that he felt his coworkers on the set of "The Peanut Butter Wolf," which he was filming at the time, "believe I'm a racist … [i] don't want to be alive, basically." He ultimately completed the movie, got sober, went to court-ordered rehab and discovered he suffered from PTSD as well as alcoholism. "The stuff that's in 'Honey Boy' comes out of these exposure therapy sessions," he said. The movie was based on what he experienced with his father, including living with his dad in a motel where their relationship deteriorated further. "Everything that's in the film happened," said Shia. He went on to describe how for a long time, he thought he could escape the cycle in which he and his father were stuck if he made enough money, since his father was largely absent from his childhood "because he was chasing cash." Eventually, he did enough big films that he was able to start taking on more indie projects. "I was trying to earn my father. I was trying to shake off Disney. I was trying to shake off blockbusters. And I was trying to work with people who f—ed me," he told THR. By the time he was ready to make a movie about what happened between him and his dad, he was also strong enough to go visit his father for the first time in seven years and get permission to play his dad in the film. "He didn't believe that I could pull it off," he noted. Shia said when his dad saw the movie he realized Shia understood more than perhaps he'd realized. "He knows that I see him," he said. "He's calmed. And I've calmed."
