Tim McGraw's fans react to shirtless fishing trip pic: 'What fish?'
"I'm sure no one even notices the fish 😍." That's how one of Tim McGraw's many (many) admirers responded when he shared a shirtless photo from his latest spearfishing trip on Tuesday, May 29. He captioned the shot with stats from what he called a "pole spear … free dive," boasting that he'd snagged the yellow fin grouper in his hand — "1st one!" — at "36 ft down." As commenter triffyc12 correctly suggested, though, it wasn't the grouper that was getting likes. "😳😳😳😳😳😳😳😳….. did anyone else suddenly feel hot…. I'm sweating," wrote one user. "That's a damn impressive specimen. 🙌🏼," wrote another who joked, "Nice fish too 😁." A third simply asked, "what fish?" The singer seems to have spent much of the month on the water — most likely diving and fishing off the private island in the Bahamas he and Faith Hill bought in 2003; they later told Architectural Digest they spent nearly 10 years working on the interconnected pavilions that now serve as a second home for their family. As for those abs, the shirtless pic comes as Tim, 52, prepares to release a new memoir, "Grit & Grace: Train the Mind, Train the Body, Own Your Life," which details his relationship with exercise and how it helped him deal with various health issues. "I've gone through a physical transformation in the last 10 years, but it's not just my appearance that has changed," he told People this spring. "My mind is clearer, my sense of purpose is sharper and my relationships are deeper. Consistent physical exercise helps me bring focus to my life and to the people who mean the most to me."
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are leaning towards a small wedding
Wedding plans are still in the works for Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez, but whenever they do exchange their vows, it will probably be in a low-key setting. A source tells People that the bride and groom-to-be "are not doing a huge wedding" and will possibly go for "a small family celebration that will, of course, include all four kids," instead. "They are talking about the wedding, but nothing is finalized," says the source, adding that a date has yet to be set. One thing that is clear? The kids J.Lo shares with Marc Anthony, 11-year-old twins, Max and Emme, as well as A-Rod's daughters, Natasha, 14, and Emily, 11, will have a role in the wedding. The extended family has already gotten to close, having shared vacations, holidays and other outings since the singer and former Yankees began dating more than two years ago. They're slated for another group trip beginning in June when Jennifer's It's My Party tour gets underway in Inglewood, California. "Her schedule is extremely intense, but she is super excited," the insider says. "Alex is very supportive and will be at most of her shows over the summer. They will travel as a family all around the U.S." Jennifer and Alex announced their engagement in March, shortly after their anniversary.

George Clooney and Amal are auctioning off a double date with them at their Lake Como home
George and Amal Clooney's Lake Como home in Italy has been the site of A-lister-packed parties since George took over the property in the early 2000s. Now, the couple is set to welcome a pair of lucky strangers to their villa in the hopes of raising some cash for the Clooney Foundation for Justice. This week, George announced he and his wife are hosting a contest for a chance to hang with the couple at their villa — while making sure to give Amal credit for being the main draw. "Hi, I'm Amal Clooney's husband George and we'd like to invite you to come with us to Lake Como," George says in the clip (via People). When he asks the director if he or she is "sure that's how you want me to say it," the director replies, "People really love Amal. That's really the selling point here." Getting back to business, George continues: "That's right, to benefit the Clooney Foundation for Justice, we're inviting you and a guest to go on a double date with Amal, a world-renowned human rights lawyer, law school professor and a leading thinker on the concept of justice throughout the world and me … an actor." (That's no hyperbole, either: Amal is currently bringing sexual violence charges against ISIS in French court.) George gets more self-effacing from there: "Just picture it: You and Amal, wine in your hand discussing current affairs while her husband quietly serves lunch," he teases, before asking the director,. "why don't we do a take where it just says Amal will be there and I won't really be there?" The date will feature lunch including "some of Italy's finest Prosecco, charcuterie and cheese," according to Omaze, which is hosting the contest. Roundtrip airfare for two and 4-star hotel accommodations are included, as well. The Clooneys' Justice Foundation "advocates for accountability for justice for human rights abuses around the world," according to the organization's website.

Angelina Jolie and all the kids celebrate Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's birthday
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt turned 13 on Monday, May 27, and she celebrated by taking advantage of the fact she's now at the minimum age required to join in the fun at Los Angeles escape room The Basement. While her dad, Brad Pitt, continues to promote "Once Upon a Time in Holywood" in Europe, Shiloh's mom, Angelina Jolie, and five siblings, plus some friends, joined the birthday girl for an immersive escape adventure, according to Page Six. The challenge was wrapped into a party, complete with custom birthday cakes and a magician. Brad and Angelina legally ended their marriage in April through a judgment. Their divorce has not yet been finalized.
Sophie Turner reveals she helped Joe Jonas with his Sansa Stark look
The world may finally be getting over the controversial "Game of Thrones" finale, but you can still count on a chat with Sophie Turner veering into some discussion of her "GoT" character, Sansa Stark. This week, the actress joined her "Dark Phoenix" costars, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy, on "The Graham Norton Show." When the conversation (inevitably) turned to Sansa, Graham asked about the Sansa costume Sophie's now husband, Joe Jonas, wore for Halloween last year. Turns out the real Sansa was quite involved in glamming her man up for the occasion. "I actually picked out the costume for him and did his hair," she said, according to EW. Michael chimed in with a sarcastic, "I thought that was how he wooed you," but he didn't get a rise out of Sophie, who said only, "Doesn't he look gorgeous?" Indeed, he does.
Julianne Moore laughs when asked if she gets equal pay: 'Definitely not'
Julianne Moore finds the notion she's paid the same rate for the same work as her male counterparts downright laughable. A reporter for The Telegraph recently asked the actress, who's earned five Oscar nominations and won one Academy Award over the course of three decades-plus long career, if she gets equal pay in 2019. She burst out laughing. "Oh, no! Definitely not," she said, according to E! News. She added that she does tend to be paid equally on indie films because those contracts usually allot payment based on the movie's profits, not an upfront fee payment. "In terms of other films, obviously it's hierarchical," she said. "So if there are people who have bigger parts and are bigger stars, they'll be paid more. But I think the question everyone is asking is, well, even if it is hierarchical, and you have actors of equal stature and equal parts, then they should be paid the same. But obviously it's very challenging." Citing the latest information from Forbes, E! points out Scarlett Johansson, the world's highest-paid actress of 2018, earned $40.5 million, while Will Smith — only the sixth highest paid actor that year — still earned some $2 million more than Scarlett.
Reese Witherspoon opens up about creating better roles for women
Julianne Moore's far from the only woman in Hollywood pushing for gender equality in the entertainment industry. Reese Witherspoon was in New York City this week to promote "Big Little Lies," one of multiple projects she's involved with aimed at telling stories focused on women. Speaking to Trevor Noah on the Daily Show on Tuesday, May 28, Reese opened up about her production company, Hello Sunshine. "A few years ago I just decided I was sick and tired of reading terrible parts for women, and if it wasn't good enough for me and it wasn't good enough for my friends, it wasn't good enough for my daughter to be watching how women were represented in the world," she said, according to JustJared. "So I just decided to do [it] myself. I started buying books and turning them into TV shows. I just finished one with Jennifer Aniston, for Apple, and I'm starting my next one next week with Kerry Washington, based on a book called 'Little Fires Everywhere.'" Asserting that "there's a better spectrum of the female experience" available in books than on TV or in movies right now, she added that streaming platforms have allowed people like her to "broaden the storytelling for women and for every person that feels like that haven't seen themselves represented in film." Said Reese: "It's a great time to be a creator."
Sia wants to adopt teen from 'Foster' movie on HBO
Sia's good samaritan drive could end up landing a home for one teen who's been in foster care for over a decade. On Tuesday, May 28, Sia tweeted that she wants to adopt one of the children featured on HBO's film, "Foster." "Hey Dasani from 'FOSTER' on HBO! I'd like to adopt you. We're just trying to find you and get my house check done etc. but I want you to know you will have a home with me," Sia tweeted. "Dasani if you're out there or your case worker is out there please email David@crushmusic.com so we can connect," she added. Dasani, 16, has lived in group homes since his mother was shot and killed by the man Us Weekly reports was essentially serving as Dasani's father. "Being in a group home, it's like, lockdown," the teen says at one point in the movie. "It's like having a big chain attached to your leg. You go, and if it don't work out, you go somewhere completely different. You're just bouncing from place to place to place to place. You don't know none of these people. It's a whole new experience. It's a whole new environment. Everything is different." Sia has been donating money to "Survivor" contestants for some time now. She's also secured donations of food and accommodations for the homeless by flexing her Twitter muscles.
Krysten Ritter shows off her growing baby bump at premiere for final season of 'Jessica Jones'
Krysten Ritter's baby bump may be getting more attention than the recent cancellation of "Jessica Jones." At least, that was The Blast's takeaway from the Netflix superhero series' premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday, May 28. The screening marked Krysten's first red carpet appearance since Netflix announced her cult-favorite series would come to an end after the new, third season, which premieres June 14. And though the star smiled and happily showed off her very pregnant, red clad belly as she walked the carpet with her boyfriend, "War on Drugs" guitarist Adam Granduciel, she clearly had the cancellation on her mind, as well. Before stepping out for the premiere, she shared the final trailer for the new season. "Sometimes," she captioned the clip, "not even 'heroes' can save themselves."
Michael Jackson's estate suffers a loss in battle over 'Finding Neverland'
HBO just scored a small win over The Michael Jackson Estate in its fight over "Leaving Neverland," the documentary about claims by two men that the late singer sexually abused them as children. According to THR, a federal judge ruled against the estate on its motion to allow an arbitrator to determine the jurisdiction of the case, so it will now continue to be hashed out in open court. The estate — which sued the network in March, claiming the movie breaches a non-disparagement clause they dug up in an agreement that's 27 years old — was hoping to avoid duking it out in open court. That prompted HBO to get the case moved to federal court in California (as opposed to state). HBO maintains there's no way a 1992 contract with Jackson could possibly cover the terms of the film. THR notes that despite the seemingly dull procedural aspects of the recent decision, "it has the potential of determining the entire case" because once it was decided the jurisdiction issue couldn't be tied to the three decades-old contract, it became likely other terms of the contract, including the clause on which the estate built its case, are also null and void.
