Ryan Reynolds jokes that Hugh Jackman 'must be stopped' after cozying up to Emily Blunt
Too close for comfort? John Krasinski seems to think so — and he's not alone. Over the weekend, Hugh Jackman shared a photo of himself with his "Marry Poppins" costar, Emily Blunt, after the two interviewed one another for "Variety Studio: Actors on Actors" on PBS over the weekend. The shot Hugh posted was innocent enough, as was the caption, which read, "Had the pleasure of chatting with the amazing EMILY BLUNT today." But as ET noticed, Emily's husband, John Krasinski, shared a different image from the Variety event — in which his wife closed her eyes and laughed as Hugh nuzzled her blonde hair. "Eeeeeeasy Hugh… not sure this is what @Variety meant with #ActorsonActors…" John joked, adding, "Don't make me think I can hurt you." That's when Ryan waded into the mix. The "Deadpool" star has cultivated quite the social media relationship with Hugh, teasing him on multiple fronts including his heritage (Ryan announced that the Australian actor has been lying to us all along and is actually from Milwaukee, not Down Under.) "This is a call to action," Ryan wrote in response to John's jokey complaint about the seeming coziness between Hugh and his wife. "This man must be stopped." Ryan, of course, is no stranger to social media trolling. An avowed fan of making fun of his wife, Blake Lively, online (and getting trolled right back as a result) the star's also been known to go after Donald Trump, Paddington Bear and his entire email contact list. Hugh, by the way, didn't take the roast sitting down. Chatting with Variety at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where he was being honored on Monday, Nov. 19, Hugh joked, "You gotta stay on your toes, John, that's all I'm saying" before quipping that he'd be "fine to fight John" if necessary, but the two-on-one situation of facing John along with Ryan seems a bit unfair. "I'm like, 'Come on, guys. One at a time. Not together,'" he griped. Hugh then took credit for the whole thing. "I'm really creating all these feuds," he cracked. "This mister nice guy image is over."
Kylie Jenner tries to get Stormi to say 'Kylie Cosmetics,' gets 'dada' instead
Travis Scott: 1, Kylie Cosmetics: zilch. Kylie Jenner shared a hilarious video over the weekend of the daughter she shares with Travis Scott attempting to say the name of her company. Let's just say the marketing lingo lesson didn't go as planned. In the clip, Kylie can be heard slowly enunciating the words "Kylie Cosmetics" for her 9-month-old, Stormi, who's holding a Kylie Cosmetics eyeshadow box. After the new mom says the name of her brand, her daughter makes some sweet "gah" and "coo" sounds before settling on some different verbiage: "Dada." "Trying to teach her some new words 🙄🤣😂😍😍😍," Kylie wrote alongside the post. Even Travis, who's on tour in support of his album, "Astroworld," noticed the vid. "Da da," he said in the comments. "I'm OTW back momma."

Kimora Lee Simmons posts moving tribute to Kim Porter after her memorial service
More tributes to Kim Porter, who died suddenly at age 47 last week, have surfaced on social media in the wake of the memorial service the late model's ex, Diddy, held for her at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 18. Among them was a long, moving Instagram post from Kim's close friend, Kimora Lee Simmons. "At your homegoing celebration today it became all too real that you are not coming back. I cannot stop crying but I will be strong for you," she wrote, "Gone WAY too soon. Wtf. I am in shock. To my beautiful friend and sister, I love you.❤️ This is unbelievable. When I first heard the news, I was angry that someone would play such a stupid a– joke." Kimora went on to say she'd been told Kim was asleep in her room the morning she died and had rushed to her house to get her up. "But soon as i arrived I realized you would not come. Every room I walk into now I think, 'ok, I will just go and get Kim.' But I see that I cannot," she continued. "This is all too close and too sad. Your light was a beaming beacon for so many. You are A WHOLE MOOD! You are a girls girl which is why we've stayed close always. We are so alike in so many ways, we shared clothes, food, attitudes, friends, enemies, the greatest happinesses and the worst sadnesses. We've been married, given birth, raised families, gotten divorced, experienced death and everything in between-together. You are a great mama. Between us we have 8 kids who are all cousins. We are, and will always be-a family. I will look after yours and you will look after and guide us all." She signed off by honoring the "beautiful, loving, sassy soul" of her friend, writing, "We love you forever. May God bless your journey. We will never stop crying for you❤️🕊 #kimporter #forevermylady #rip 😢 #blackexcellence 👑✨." Diddy, who shared three children with Kim, also broke his silence on her death over the weekend, posting multiple tributes to her memory after leaning on his more recent ex, Cassie Ventura, for support.

Priyanka Chopra unveils her wedding registry
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas: they're just like us … except Amazon probably paid them for the privilege of hosting their wedding registry (ahem). Priyanka recently posted her wedding gift wish list on the site and shared a little explanation about why she's interested in the various products with People. Much of the list is focused on entertaining needs, from designer throw pillows and dinner plates to a Reidel wine decanter. "I've always been an entertainer," says the bride-to-be. "My home is always bustling with loved ones. I have a very close-knit set of friends and so does Nick and I like being a host. … My mom always taught me this, it's a little classic and old-fashioned, but it's always very important to be house proud. In my country there's a saying, in Sanskrit, which means that a guest should be treated how you treat God." For Priyanka's guests, that means plenty of music, too. The actress has a Crosley turntable on her list and says she's "always just loved the sound" of vinyl. "I play everything from Ariana Grande to The Chainsmokers on my record player. It looks so cool. And every party with me ends up in a dance party," she admits. Priyanka's also looking for some home fitness gear, a pair of rollerblades ("that is my '90s teen calling out to me," she jokes) and a Vitamix blender — as well as a few gifts for her pooch, including a dog rain jacket. "She's quite the princess," Priyanka says. "She lives a good life, let's just say. And she refuses to walk outside when it's raining." Priyanka and Nick, who got engaged over the summer, are expected to say "I do" in the bride's native India in the next few weeks.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro wants to make amends with his on-off girlfriend, Jen Harley, as well as his family and fans after an episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" showed him cozying up to another woman. "It's edited to make it look worse," he wrote on social media of the episode in question, in which he and a friend of Angelina Pivarnick appear to end up in hot tub and then in bed together. "I was in a bad place in my life and my relationship and I acted out of anger & immature resentment," he said (via E! News). "Since than [sic] I've grown & wouldn't want to hurt my girlfriend or my daughter, everyone makes mistakes and you'll see next week that I learned from mine. I wouldn't never put myself in that position again to hurt the two people I love the most in my life." He added, "I want to lead my example for my daughter and how to be a real man and I need to lead how to be a good boyfriend/husband. I'm sorry." Ronnie and Jen welcomed their first daughter, Ariana Sky Magro, this past spring.
Jennifer Garner's new boyfriend's ex-wife learned her divorce was finalized on the Internet
Jennifer Garner's rumored boyfriend, John Miller and his ex, violinist Caroline Campbell, are officially divorced. That was apparently news to Caroline, who posted on social media late last week that she only learned the divorce papers had all gone through when an update was posted online, presumably because of John's relationship with Jennifer. "Performed tonight in Texas with the always incredible and charismatic @chrisbottimusic and oh, apparently my divorce is finalized," Caroline wrote on Friday, Nov. 16 (via Us Weekly). "I just found out on the internet.. Lol!! Tomorrow night we play Dallas – can't wait!!"

Behold The Rock's cheat day sushi extravaganza
Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?! Well, we hope not, since smell-able sushi is not exactly ideal. But neither is the amount of food the "Fast and Furious" star had in one sitting on Sunday, Nov. 18. "The cheat meal Sunday Sushi Train 🍣 🚂 rolled on this past weekend with some power and a ton of that wooosabi 🔥," Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson captioned a shot of a exorbitant amount of Japanese treats. "Great new doc on Netflix about one of my fav country artists, the icon himself, Johnny Cash," he added in reference to his picture, which showed his laptop screen playing the new Netflix documentary, "Tricky Dick and the Man in Black." "I wear the black for the poor and beaten down.. livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town," The Rock added. "If you ain't eatin' – then you ain't cheatin'. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends and excuse me while I take greed and gluttony to new levels." The Daily Mail counted at least 90 pieces of sushi in the meal, which sparked followers to ask if the food was really all for him — and to suggest maybe he should take it easy. "Na man, that's way too much sushi for one man …," wrote one commenter. "Even the rock."
Justin Bieber settles egg throwing suit
Nearly four years after he was sued for egging his neighbors' house, Justin Bieber is finally free of the lawsuit filed by Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwartz in early 2015 . The Guardian reports Justin settled with the couple although the outlet was unable to confirm details of the settlement. In the initial lawsuit, the plaintiffs claimed the singer caused emotional distress and property damage as a result of throwing eggs at their home. They also demanded damages for the emotional distress they claimed to have endured as a result of Justin's "loud parties, drug use and aggressive driving" when he lived near them in the gated Los Angeles community of Calabasas, according to the Guardian. As the singer's lawyers pointed out, Justin had already forked over $80,000 in restitution and served probation for the 2013 egg throwing incident.
Alexander Skarsgard opens up about 'Big Little Lies' character, castmates
While playing Nicole Kidman's abusive husband, Perry, on "Big Little Lies," Alexander Skarsgard found he had to get away from the heaviness of the character when shooting wrapped each day. The actor recently sat down with Radio Times, which asked how he was affected by playing such a "mounstrous" person. "I have to leave it on set. It would be very difficult to function otherwise," he said. "I did 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?' on stage in Sweden 15 years ago. It's a very dark play and it was one of the first things I did as an actor, and I was having a hard time – it was 140 performances over five months. You can't go home 140 times from the theater feeling that depressed and having that weight on you. So that's where I learnt to leave the character behind. It was important for me to be able to have a normal life and go out and have fun. It was the same on 'Big Little Lies.' We shot in L.A. and I stayed with friends. That helped a lot. They have kids, and it's a loving, warm, family atmosphere. It was nice that I didn't come home to an empty hotel room." On a happier note, the star also spoke highly of his virtually all female castmates, saying — in spite of rumors of conflict — he was inspired by the degree to which he saw them look out for one another on set. "Not only are they extraordinarily talented women, they're so supportive of each other," he said. "I've been on sets with men where it gets very competitive, especially alpha dudes who want to make sure they're the silverback gorilla in the room. That can hurt the creative process, because egos and insecurities come in. So it was wonderful to be in a situation where people cared about the project more than their character."
Michael B. Jordan hopes 'Creed II' will inspire audiences 'to dream' big
For Michael B. Jordan, "Creed II" has the potential to do more than just entertain. As MBJ explains in the new issue of EW, he hopes the second installment of the boxing franchise can have special meaning for African-American audiences. "As broad as we want it to be and as accessible to everybody, we try to find moments to make it very specific for us. We deserve that," he says. He also hopes the film inspires those who see it. "It's to help people dream, to get over hard times, as an escape from their reality," Michael says. "The 'Rocky' films, they did that. If the Creed franchise can have that same effect, I think we've done our job."
