  • FUROR ERUPTS OVER JACK WHITEHALL'S CASTING AS 'FIRST GAY MAN' IN 'JUNGLE CRUISE'

  • Tue, 14 Aug 2018 01:00:00 EST

    A backlash followed the news that Jack Whitehall was cast in Jungle Cruise, a new live action Disney film starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. While neither Whitehall nor Disney described the role, a report in the Sun claims Whitehall would be playing an openly gay character. The report described the role as "one who is hugely effete, very camp and very funny."

    Whitehall is straight, which immediately put Twitter up in arms. Actor Omar Sharif Jr. tweeted: "Your first significant gay role will be played by a straight white man perpetuating stereotypes? Fail! This ship should sink."

    Others likened the casting "fail" to that of Scarlett Johansson playing a trans man in Rub & Tug. Following outrage to ScarJo's casting, the film was canceled.



  • IS ANGELINA JOLIE'S NEW LAWYER FUELING HER AGGRESSIVE TACTICS?

  • Tue, 14 Aug 2018 01:00:00 EST

    Angelina Jolie’s team has denied reports of her split from powerful divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, but tongues have been wagging about her recent aggressive tactics in her battle against estranged husband Brad Pitt. The Maleficent actress recently brought on other attorneys with formidable reputations for playing tough in Hollywood divorce wars.

    Last week, Jolie accused Pitt of failing to provide "meaningful child support" for their brood of six since their split in 2016.

    In her legal filing, Jolie asked "Brad to pay 50 percent of the children’s expenses," claiming he "has not" paid his share.

    Pitt fired back, saying he’d loaned her $8 million for a home and shelled out $1.3 million for her and the kids. After his statement, Jolie’s new lawyer Samantha Bley DeDean said: "A loan is not … child support, and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate."

    Jolie filed her papers with Los Angeles Superior Court, and according to Page Six, one of her lawyers is also Joseph Mannis of top Beverly Hills family law firm LA Hersh Mannis LLP. The firm repped Kim Basinger in her divorce from Alec Baldwin, a notoriously ugly split in which he accused Basinger and her lawyers of leaking audio of him calling their then 11-year-old Ireland a "rude, thoughtless little pig."

    BACK IN CALIFORNIA

    Meanwhile, Jolie was photographed shopping at a West Hollywood Whole Foods with three of her kids. Jolie was ordered to return with the kids to California from London, where she is working on Maleficent. Per TMZ, a judge has decreed that Pitt has a right to custody of the kids for no less than 4 hours every other day on school days and 12 hours every other day on non-school days.

    They are due back in court this week to settle custody issues; a judge is reportedly waiting on a custody evaluation from one or more psychiatrists.

    Paris Jackson recently went under the knife. The 20-year-old model shared a health update via Instagram Stories, explaining she’d had a big abscess removed.

    "So long story short, I had surgery yesterday," the daughter of Michael Jackson said in a video message. Jackson added that it was "almost the size of a golf ball" and that she needed to get it removed because "if it pops, you can go septic and die."

    She says she declined anesthesia and stayed "awake for all of it."

    "It was definitely the most pain that I'd ever been through in my entire life, considering I'm covered head to toe in tattoos," she said. "But, I'm alive."

    She even managed to rally and perform in L.A. with her band The SoundFlowers at the Canyon Sessions fundraiser for F—k Cancer. Jackson gave a special attendee—her grandmother Katherine Jackson—a shout-out on Instagram, telling her it "means the world to me" to have her at the show.
