Jonah Hill shows off impressive weight loss transformation on "Maniac" set
Jonah Hill's weight loss journey continues! The actor was photographed looking super-thin on the New York City set of "Maniac," an upcoming Netflix series, on Aug. 31. In a series of dark photos, the two-time Oscar nominee could be seen enjoying a healthy green snack (what appeared to be either apple or avocado slices) — but also smoking a cigarette — and having his makeup touched up while rocking a football jersey, jean shorts, knee-high socks, high-top sneakers and a major mullet. (The series, in which Emma Stone is also set to star, reportedly centers around the fantasy worlds of two patients at a mental institute.) Jonah made headlines back in 2015 when he suddenly packed on pounds while shooting "War Dogs," but he's since been on the path to slimming back down.

Cindy Crawford remembers the time Princess Diana personally called her to meet
Cindy Crawford took to Instagram on Aug. 31 to pay homage to Princess Diana on the 20th anniversary of the late royal's death. "Remembering this inspiring woman today," the supermodel captioned a photo of herself wearing an LBD and dark tights while posing with Diana, who donned slacks and a jacket. "This photo was taken at Kensington Palace," Cindy continued. "Princess Diana had somehow got the number to my office and called herself to ask for me. My assistant was in shock! We finally connected and she asked if the next time I was in London I would come by for tea — I think Prince William was just starting to notice models and she thought it would be a cute surprise for him and Prince Harry. I was nervous and didn't know what to wear, but remember as soon as she came into the room and we started talking, it was like talking to a girlfriend. She was a class act and showed us all what a modern day princess should be."

DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios are "just friends" in spite of PDA-packed outing
Don't let those PDA-packed photos fool you: There's nothing romantic going on between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. "They are just friends and wanted to hang out to talk about all the insanity of the last few months together," a source close to DeMario told Us Weekly. "They had an amazing time, but nothing romantic, even though it sure looked like it!" Paparazzi caught the duo looking extremely chummy during a night out at Nightingale Plaza in West Hollywood on Aug. 30. It was the first time they'd been seen together publicly since production of "Bachelor in Paradise" was shut down earlier this summer amid concerns that the duo had been involved in sexual misconduct. (Ultimately, Warner Bros. determined there was no evidence to confirm that fear.) The blonde beauty previously told "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison during a sit-down interview that aired on Aug. 29 that she "honestly didn't think [DeMario] did anything wrong." Clearly there's no bad blood between these two!
