Twinning again. Reese Witherspoon took her 18-year-old mini-me Ava Phillippe to the WSJ Magazine 2017 Innovator Awards this week and as usual , the two looked nearly identical. Like Ava, Reese selected a just-to-the-knee-length black cocktail dress and strappy black shoes for the occasion, where Reese was honored with the Innovator in Entertainment award for her work through production company Hello Sunshine to tell more female-driven stories in Hollywood and create better roles for women. "Women want real substance and premium, thought-provoking, well-made content and they want it now," Reese said, according to E! News. "Quite frankly we just can't see the same films from the same group of people over and over again and expect society to change. … I don't know if you guys have read the news or anything," she continued, "but we've been dealing with some really ugly truth of sexism and sexual harassment and it has been rampant for far longer than I've been an actress, but it's brought back a lot of painful memories for people and it's been a real time of reckoning for us and there is definitely a growing realization that we need to take the time to really examine the biases that exist in our industry and make much needed change."

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver's divorce has not been finalized
When they joined three of their four children at the premiere of "The Long Road Home" this week, it sure looked as if all was well between Maria Shriver and her ex, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Lena Dunham thought Jack Anatoff was going to propose — but no so much
Woops. In what could have been a "Girls" episode plotline, Lena Dunham revealed this week she believed she'd caught her boyfriend Jack Anatoff working up engagement plans. Alas, that's not quite what was going on. "I thought Jack was furtively planning a proposal to me with his sister and he just admitted I actually caught him 'talking s—' about me!" Lena tweeted in the wee hours of Thursday, Nov. 2 (via E! News). "Now I literally can't sleep cuz I'm laughing too hard and I am also keeping him awake," she added. "5.5 years, no rock and you know what? It's real nice." Later, she explained how she mistook a conversation about Jack being irked with her for a proposal plan. "They were huddled and I heard him say 'Lena' and 'finger' so obviously it seemed like an engagement ring talk," she tweeted. "Anyway I want Cardi B's ring." Engagement buzz around the couple, who once said they'd only marry when same-sex marriage was legal everywhere in the U.S., started back in 2015 when lena was spotted wearing a new ring on her all-important finger and fans noticed Jack's sister had referred to the "Girls" creator as her "sister-in-law."
Wilmer Valderrama credits immigrant parents' teachings for his success
With the White House pushing for more stringent immigration policies across the board, Wilmer Valderrama, whose Colombia father and Venezuelan mother moved the family to Venezuela when the actor was 3, is speaking out about the intense work ethic his parents instilled in him from a young age so he could take advantage of every opportunity afforded to him by being a U.S. citizen. "When I first came [back] to the United States I was about 13-14 years old. The first thing my dad said was, 'Mijo, we came here to work,'" Wilmer recalls in a new interview with ET. "He said, 'Your full-time job is to get the education that we didn't have. Your full-time job is to learn how to speak English and obtain the tools you need to get to where you want to be.' And, that was something that was very important to me." He went on to say it was lessons like those that helped him succeed as an actor at a young age. Now, the 37-year-old "That '70s Show" alum is also a successful advocate for immigrants in the U.S. — a cause he's furthering by working with Johnnie Walker's Keep Walking America campaign to celebrate cultural diversity. "Every time that I do an inner city program or help establish a program that [helps immigrants], all I picture is my family. All I see in every person I talk to, every immigrant that I come across, I see my parents when we first got here," he continued. "There is absolutely no difference. We didn't speak any English. We ate dinner every other night, and not that it was a bad thing, for us Latinos, you just turn the music on a little louder and keep on pushing. We never felt sorry for ourselves, we just knew that we had to work a little harder, get up in the morning a little earlier and keep swinging. And, eventually something good will happen, and it did." Wilmer is currently working wit a Johnnie Walker pop-up portrait studio outside the naturalization ceremonies in downtown Los Angeles. "This portrait series will capture people's first portrait as a U.S citizen. It's a day where we get to share stories on how we arrived to the United States, the rolling of the sleeves and working hard. And, what it means to get a seat at a table by becoming a citizen," Wilmer said. He added that he considers it his job to help "reinforce the American Dream," and ensure "that we never forget our heritage as we embrace our role in this beautiful country."

The Weeknd 'didn't trust' Justin Bieber when it came to Selena Gomez: report
Former flames Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been hanging out regularly in recent weeks and while TMZ has reported their get-togethers started after Selena broke up with The Weeknd, a Justin source says Justin initially "checked in" with Selena out of concern following her kidney transplant over the summer. Initially, one insider told Us Weekly The Weeknd was cool with Selena being in touch with her ex. A second source isn't so sure. "He trusted Selena, but he really didn't trust Justin," says the source. The Weeknd probably wasn't overreacting, either. According to Us, Justin very much wants to get back together with Selena. "There won't be any decisions soon," says a friend of Selena's. "But ultimately, their friends think it will end up in that direction."
