    • SARAH FERGUSON DEFENDS SON-IN-LAW AFTER SEXY PHOTO FLAP + SHARES THOUGHTS ON PRINCE HARRY

      Sarah Ferguson is coming out swinging for her son-in-law Jack Brooksbank, days after Princess Eugenie's husband made headlines partying on a yacht in Capri with women in bikinis.

      The Duchess of York, no stranger to scandals herself, called her son-in-law "a man of integrity."

      She added: "Jack, who was on the front page, is such a man of integrity. "He's just one of my most favorite people. I call him James Bond, actually. He's just a superhero in my book, and he's a great father, a fabulous husband, and he's never at front of house, he always likes to be at the back."

      Indeed, she claimed Jack is just "doing his job" as brand ambassador for the tequila company Casamigos, founded by George Clooney and Rande Gerber.

      She recently told People of her daughter and Jack: He is my son and all, but he's like my son and I adore them both. And to see Eugenie and Jack being beautiful parents to little August, I'm really proud."

      THOUGHTS ON HARRY

      She also told ET of Prince Harry's highly anticipated memoir, and Meghan Markle's writing projects: "I think the fact that Meghan's written a children's book is really good, well done her, because anyone that sits there writing a book, it's really hard. Cause you have to keep it all very condensed, if it's children's. With Harry, I think he's got a lot to say and, really, I think his late mother Princess Diana would be really proud of her sons, and their wives and the grandkids."

      She added: "And he's such a good boy, you know, I think in life there's no question that there's far too judgment and there should be more compassion and support in every way on everybody. My mission statement of my charity is no race, creed, color or any other denomination -- we stand together and we fight for the right for a child to dare to dream."

    • JASON MOMOA CALLS OUT REPORTER'S 'ICKY' QUESTION

      Jason Momoa called out a reporter for asking an "icky" question about his Game of Thrones character. Momoa starred as Khal Drogo in Season 1 of the HBO drama, and is currently filming the sequel to Aquaman, and is set to appear in Dune, Sweet Girl and Apple TV's See.

      A New York Times reporter asked about a controversy surrounding his character, when he raped Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen on their wedding night.

      He said: "Well, it was important to depict Drogo and his style. You're playing someone that's like Genghis Khan. It was a really, really, really hard thing to do. But my job was to play something like that, and it's not a nice thing, and it's what that character was. It's not my job to go, ‘Would I not do it?'"

      He added: "I've never really been questioned about "Do you regret playing a role?" We'll put it this way: I already did it. Not doing it again."

      After that question, Momoa seemed to be eager to get out, giving curt answers and reminding the interviewer to stick to the topics he'd agreed to discuss.

      At the end of the interview, he said: "When you brought up Game of Thrones, you brought up stuff about what's happening with my character and would I do it again. I was bummed when you asked me that. It just feels icky — putting it upon me to remove something. As if an actor even had the choice to do that. We're not really allowed to do anything. There are producers, there are writers, there are directors, and you don't get to come in and be like, ‘I'm not going do that because this isn't kosher right now and not right in the political climate.' That never happens. So it's a question that feels icky. I just wanted you to know that."

      The scene in question has been a lightning rod for criticism before. He issued an apology in 2017 after an old clip of him joking that the show lets him "rape beautiful women," saying: "I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won't take away those hurtful words," he continued. "Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends. I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said."

    • EMMA ROBERTS TALKS LIMITING WHAT SHE SHARES ON 'DARK AND POLARIZING' INTERNET

      Emma Roberts has perfected what she chooses to share and not online. She told Bustle that she tries to keep things "light" on social media.

      "We live our whole lives online now," Roberts, who welcomed her first child with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund in December, explained. "Sharing on social media has always been something that I've loved, but I always err on the lesser side because you can't take back anything you've shared online. Even when a post is taken down, it still lives somewhere."

      Twitter users notoriously got ahold of a post she shared of herself giggling and turned it into countless memes.

      She's also cautious about sharing shotes of her son Rhodes, but still wants to share glimpses and insight with fans and friends.

      "But I try to keep it limited to books or fashion or vacations," she shared. "The internet can be such a dark and polarizing place, so my corner of the internet I try to keep lighthearted and fun, because that's what I like to see on Instagram."

      In other news, Roberts' drama starring Grace Van Patten, has been green-lit for Hulu, the first iteration of a TV deal with the Disney-backed streamer. Tell Me Lies was first put in development nearly a year ago as the first project under Roberts' Hulu pact. Van Patten will next be seen in Nine Perfect Strangers, opposite Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy.
