Gwyneth Paltrow dons mask on flight amid Coronavirus outbreak

Amid coronavirus concerns, Gwyneth Paltrow masked up while traveling to Europe.

On Wednesday, the actress posted a picture to Instagram that showed her wearing a mask on her face while trying to protect from infection.

"En route to Paris. Paranoid? Prudent? Panicked? Placid? Pandemic? Propaganda? Paltrow's just going to go ahead and sleep with this thing on the plane," she captioned the selfie.

Gwyneth then joked about her role in the 2011 medical action thriller "Contagion" alongside Matt Damon, in which her character died from a deadly disease.

"I've already been in this movie," Gwyn joked. "Stay safe. Don't shake hands. Wash hands frequently."

The coronavirus has been tightening its grip in the world, as 80,000 people globally are said to be infected with the virus, which has caused 2,700 deaths. CNN reported on Wednesday that the virus has now spread to every continent except Antarctica.

The virus has actually sparked interest in "Contagion," as it jumped to No. 10 on the United States iTunes renting chart last month, The Daily Mail said. The 25-year-old film "Outbreak" also reentered the top 100.

Gwyneth's post caught the eye of her celebrity friends, with many urging her to stay safe.

"Do it girl," Brooklyn Decker wrote.

Chelsea Handler wrote, "You stay safe. Without you, who would have known about ice sold show shows???"

Armie Hammer reveals he stole his 'Rebecca' wardrobe from film set

While leaving the set of his upcoming film "Rebecca," Armie Hammer apparently had the mentality of "what's yours is mine."

During an interview with Ali Plumb on Radio 1's Movies podcast, the actor happily revealed that he had some sticky fingers when it came to his wardrobe.

During the chat, which also included his co-star Lily James, Armie was asked about the three-piece mustard suit he wore in the film. 

"I looked at it and went 'it's very yellow' and [director Ben Wheatley] said, 'It's gold! You're a trophy,'" the actor recalled. "I said 'are you objectifying me' and he said 'yes you are an object in the beginning.'"

Armie clearly had a fondness for the suit. 

"Don't tell people at Netflix but that suit is in my closet. you have no idea how much I stole," he said. "We're Americans! We're tactless and we steal things."

Lily was astonished at the reveal.

"I have never done this on any job! I was wearing Chanel all the time. I should do this!," she said.

Armie joked, "Lily is playing it right, which is why Working Title [the production company] have made so many movies." She quickly jabbed back, "That's such a compliment – I'm hired because I don't steal, not because of anything else."

The fact that Lily, 31, took part in the interview is news in and of itself, as she canceled multiple promotional interviews amid her alleged tryst with actor Dominic West, who's a married man. On Monday, one day after canceling her appearance on the "Today" show, the actress has decided to forgo her appearance on BC's "The Graham Norton Show," which was set for Oct. 23.

Last week, Lily was spotted getting romantic while exploring Rome with her married "The Pursuit of Love" co-star. Published pictures on Oct. 12 showed Dominic, 50, caressing Lily's head and kissing her neck. Other images showed them on a shared electric scooter. The duo also reportedly flew to London together afterward, and a source told The Daily Mail they were  "all over each other" while airborne.

"Within minutes of the plane leaving, they began kissing and cuddling after both removed their masks," the source said. "They looked like a couple heading for a dirty weekend and they were all over each other. They were French kissing and there was a lot of necking going on."

Jean-Claude Van Damme helps save puppy from euthanasia

Jean-Claude Van Damme is partially responsible for saving a 3-month-old Chihuahua from certain death due to a passport snafu.

According to Agence France-Presse, a Bulgarian puppy named Raya was sold to new owners in Norway, but the dog was essentially stuck in limbo because it didn't have the correct passport. 

An online petition site detailed the ordeal. 

"The dog puppy has a Bulgarian passport with vaccines and parasites treatment given by a Bulgarian veterinarian," the petition said. "The Norwegian Food Safety Authority, however, does not validate the vaccines she got in Bulgaria. Here in Norway, the dog also got additional vaccines (DHPPi and Rabies vaccines among others). On September 23. The Norwegian Food Authority took the dog from us and put her in quarantine. I have to pay for every day she is in quarantine, which I accept, as I only care for the puppy's life and well-being."

While Norway said that dog was transported "illegally," Bulgaria said the passport is invalid, preventing the pup from going there. 

With the dog in no-man's land, euthanasia was the next move. That's when Jean-Claude stepped in.

"I beg, please, for my birthday, the food safety authority, change your decision," he wrote on the petition. "They made a mistake, the people who didn't do the paper correctly … But they cannot kill that little Chihuahua."

Jean-Claude brought further awareness to the cause by tweeting out the petition to his nearly 350,000 Twitter followers.

The petition seemed to work. Media reports state the Bulgarian food safety authority have decided to allow Raya to return. She will receive a medical checkup and be put up for adoption.

Not 'Happy'

Scott Baio shades Lori Loughlin prior to 'Happy Days' reunion

Scott Baio is not cool with an idea being floated of John Stamos replacing him at an upcoming "Happy Days" reunion, so he took his frustrations out on… Lori Loughlin.

This weekend, much of the cast of the iconic sitcom will get together on behalf of the Democratic party. Scott, who played Chachi on "Happy Days," has long been a very outspoken supporter of President Trump and will not participate.

On Oct. 19, upon seeing a tweet about the Scott-less reunion, John replied, "Can I play Chachi?"

The tweet seemed to rub Scott the wrong way. Not only did he criticize John (and all Democrats, frankly), he also took a shot at Lori, who played John's on-screen wife on "Fuller House."

"Shouldn't you be taking care of Aunt Becky?" Scott wrote on Oct. 20, clearly referring to Lori's college admissions case, which will see her serving two months in prison beginning next month.

The idea of John stepping in to play Chachi was met with very differing point of views, depending on whose Twitter feed you read. John's 1.6 million Twitter followers seemed to love the idea, indicating they'd happily make a donation to watch him play Chachi. Scott's 474,000 followers were vehemently opposed to seeing anyone else in the role. 

"This is what Hollywood has come to. #shameful #LiberalsAreDesperate," Scott said of John's substitution idea. He also retweeted someone's response that referenced Lori, perhaps giving him the idea to tweet his own shade. "Shouldnt uncle Jessie be trying to bail out Becky?" the message said.

It seems that Scott wasn't always at odds with John. In fact, the "Happy Days" star appeared opposite John on "Full House" in 1989.

Prison visit

Rosie O'Donnell recalls visiting Martha Stewart in prison

When she was in prison in 2004, Martha Stewart got by with a little help from her not-so-close friends.

In a chat with Page Six, Rosie O'Donnell recalled visiting the lifestyle guru in the slammer, despite the two of them not really being close. 

"I didn't really know her very much aside from the celebrity vernacular," Rosie said. "She had done my show but I didn't really know her, we hadn't been out for dinner, we weren't exactly friends. Before she left, I wrote her a letter that I thought it was so unfair and if she ever needed anything don't hesitate and I left my phone number."

She continued, "After she was in prison I got a call from her assistant who said she'd like you to come to visit and it kind of broke my heart to think that of all the people she knew she had to invite someone she sort of didn't know to come all the way to Lynchburg, Virginia. I had to get a plane and go there."

While there, Rosie remembered a conversation the two women had. At some point Rosie asked Martha what she missed most about the outside world. The comedian assumed the answer would involve family or pets. Martha, however, said she missed "the flavor of lemon." Rosie responded by joking that she would have smuggled a lemon into prison if she knew ahead of time. 

With this in mind, Rosie had an Italian Capri lemon tree waiting on Martha's front porch when she got home. 

Martha spent five months in prison for insider trading. The experience in prison, she later told Katie Couric, was "horrifying."

Ring thing

Clare Crawley addresses diamond ring she wears on wedding finger

Clare Crawley caused a bit of a stir over the weekend when paparazzi photographed her wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring on her wedding finger. 

On Oct. 19, "The Bachelorette" star took to Instagram to clear up any misconception about the jewelry.

"People have noticed I wear this ring on my wedding finger, and have asked why! The truth is because it is a commitment to myself first and foremost, to embody self-love," she captioned a video of her flashing the alleged ring in question. "In the past I found myself getting into relationships where there was little to no reciprocity, and in the end would feel depleted and empty." 

She added, "This is my promise to myself, to make sure I always had enough self love that no matter what happened, I was committed to loving myself unconditionally, and that is something no man could take away from me."

In a separate Instagram video, she said she's worn the ring "for a while now" and it's something that "no man can ever take away from me."

"I would never want anything from a man that I couldn't do myself," she added, "so I got myself some diamonds."

Although Clare is currently the star of "The Bachelorette," it's suspected that she will cut her journey short. Multiple reports state she fell in love with Dale Moss and left the show with the former NFL player.

ABC/Craig Sjodin

During the season premiere of "The Bachelorette," Clare appeared to be at a loss for words when she met Dale. In fact, immediately after meeting him she said, "I definitely feel like I just met my husband."

While neither Clare nor producers have confirmed the speculation, promos for the show hint at a major shakeup. Longtime host Chris Harrison appears to tell Clare she has "blown up 'The Bachelorette.'"

It's been reported that fan favorite Tayshia Adams eventually replaces Clare as this season's "Bachelorette."

"I did it," she mouthed in the clip on Instagram. She added a few smiling emojis in her caption.

Halsey's fans seemed to love the look, with many vocalizing their pleasure. 

"YAS QUEEN," one fan said. Another said, "Ugh it looks absolutely amazing."

The "Bad at Love" singer often keeps her fans on their toes with her hair styles. Last week she donned braids.

Late last year she shocked her fans when she unveiled her naturally curly hair, giving her a strikingly different look. At the time, fans even claimed the hair was fake. 

"I can't believe I spent a whole damn year growing out my curls under those wigs for y'all to say my natural hair looks like a wig," she tweeted last year.

Speaking recently to Elle Australia, the "Without Me" singer spoke of her natural look.

"I've waited for that moment my entire life and there I am, with the hair that my mother and father gave me and with [minimal] makeup on, in a way I'm proud of," she said. "To be cool with the world seeing me that way… that says a lot to me about how I've grown as a person. I feel really happy."

Drink up

Jason DeRulo celebrates No. 1 song with $112k drink bill at LA restaurant

Jason DeRulo showed some over-the-top generosity after his latest song topped the charts.

On Oct. 19, the singer posted a celebratory Instagram video that shows him buying a drink for everyone at Catch, a hugely popular and pricey Los Angeles restaurant, after "Savage Love" nabbed the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The final tally: $112,742.30.

"Listen, it's a celebration of Savage Love going number one on Billboard charts," the singer told his fellow diners while raising a toast. "Cheers to everyone in the building."

During the video, Jason's girlfriend, Jena Frumes, kisses him and says, "Congrats, babe." She later says, "My baby hit No. 1 on the Billboard."

The chart-topping tune also features massively popular K-pop group BTS and New Zealand singer Jawsh 685. Jason gave his fellow contributors a shoutout in his Instagram caption, telling them, "We did it." But several fans accused Jason of editing the post to shoutout BTS after he allegedly failed to initially include his collaborators in his celebratory social media moment.

Likewise, many of the singer's followers completely credited the pop group, not Jason, for the song's success. Ironically, BTS's song "Dynamite" sits at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart.

Wedding off

Taraji P. Henson ends engagement to former NFL beau

Amid much speculation, Taraji P. Henson has confirmed that she and Kelvin Hayden have gone their separate ways and ended their engagement.

While appearing on "The Breakfast Club" on Oct. 19, the "Empire" star spoke about the split from her now-former fiancé. 

"I'm dedicated to the Black man, y'all. I just turned 50 and I mean, I hadn't said it yet, but it didn't work out," she said. "I tried. I was, like, therapy. Let's do the therapy thing, but if you're both not on the same page with that then you feel like, you're taking it on yourself, and that's not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship."

At the end of the day, Taraji and Kelvin, a former Indianapolis Colts player, realized that they were not responsible for each other's happiness and needed to "first make ourselves happy to make each other happy."

"All of my relationships started looking the same," she added. "Two broken people trying to pick up the pieces."

Fans began wondering about the status of Tarji and Kelvin's relationship last month when she celebrated her 50th birthday in Mexico without him. In Instagram images, she didn't appear to be wearing her engagement ring either.

Adding to the suspicion, Kelvin had not been seen on Taraji's Instagram in months.

Coincidentally, the duo should, in theory, be married by now. Taraji and Kelvin, who announced their engagement in May 2018, were set to tie the knot this summer, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials.

Lily James cancels another appearance amid alleged Dominic West affair

Lily James is maintaining her silence.

One day after canceling her appearance on the "Today" show, the actress has decided to forgo her appearance on another TV show.

Metro UK said Lily was set to promote "Rebecca," her new film with Armie Hammer, on BBC's "The Graham Norton Show" on Oct. 23. However, she has decided against it. 

The cancelations come after Lily was spotted getting romantic while exploring Rome with her "The Pursuit of Love" co-star Dominic West, who has been married to Irish landscape designer Catherine FitzGerald for 10 years. Published pictures showed Dominic caressing Lily's head and kissing her neck. Other images showed them on a shared electric scooter.

Last week, a source told The Daily Mail that Dominic, 50, and Lily, 31, spent two nights in a romantic suite at the Hotel De La Ville, which offers panoramic views of Rome and is close to the famous Spanish steps.

In the photos of Dominic and Lily, he is not wearing his wedding ring, leading many to wonder if he and Catherine had quietly separated. However, that's not the case. Hours after the photos of the alleged tryst were published, Dominic flew home to the United Kingdom. Then, on Oct. 13, he emerged from his house with his wife to show a united front. After he and Catherine kissed for photographers, the actor, still not wearing his wedding band, handed the paparazzi a note signed by the two of them. It read, "Our marriage is strong and we're very much still together."

Amid the drama, Dominic's past quotes have surfaced in which he argued that monogamy is not "natural."

"It's one of those subjects that people have very strong opinions about because everybody is open to it and can experience it. It affects kings as much as it does snails," he told Harper's Bazaar last year. "A lot of people have experienced it and a lot of people fear it. I suppose people suspect that the conventions that we have agreed upon in society, that a man and women can stay together for life or a certain amount of time without cheating, that they're not really staying together based on anything other than how society thinks they should behave."

He added, "It's not the necessarily natural way to be, therefore there will always be adultery and intrigue about it."

As of now, Metro UK says Lily is still set to appear on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on Oct. 21.
