    • FANS REACT TO CHRIS PRATT'S ALLEGED STEALTH SUPPORT FOR TRUMP

      Twitter was sent into a frenzy when producer and writer Amy Berg tweeted "One has to go," along with pictures of Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine and Chris Evans.

      Several followers immediately offered to cancel Pratt, citing his support of a church with anti-LGBTQ claims (Pratt has denied supporting them) and his alleged quiet support of President Donald Trump.

      One user wrote: "Dammit, I am literally just finding out that Chris Pratt is a trump supporter and I am so messed up behind that." But others said they were already over him after he and Anna Faris split: "chris pratt was canceled to me the second he hurt anna faris".

      Pratt is now married to Katherine Schwarzenegger.

      News also broke that Avengers stars, including Don Cheadle, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, and Zoe Saldana, are assembling their star power for a Joe Biden and Kamala Harris fundraiser. Pratt is reportedly not participating.

    • FRANCIA RAISA RECOUNTS FRIGHTENING ENCOUNTER WITH TRUMP SUPPORTERS

      Grown-ish star Francia Raisa is speaking out after an encounter with supporters of President Donald Trump. Raisa shared her experience on IG Story, writing that she had been "boxed in" by Trump supporters while driving in southern California.

      She added: "I was just on the 405 and I got stuck in that stupid Trump rally and they f---ing boxed me in and they're pointing at me and laughing at me, saying, 'Ha ha.' And literally, I almost crashed because they wouldn't let me out. I was trying to go around it, and they were all stopping and going."

      Raisa added: "It was so dangerous, and I just don't understand why that's the country that y'all are supposedly wanting right now. Really? That's what makes America great?"

      Raisa's friend Amber Riley came to her defense on IG Story, saying: "Francia FaceTimed me freaking the f--- out today, 'cause she was on the 405 and the little Trump rally on the 405 decided to box her in her car. A woman driving by herself. But they saw a Mexican in a car and decided to f--- with her. I was on the phone; I saw this myself."

      Riley then recounted her own incident with a Trump supporter: "In 2020, he saw a Black woman, decided that he was gonna try and punk me, and the m--------er spit on my car. I really, honestly, don't have words for this. I don't."

    • NAOMI CAMBELL TALKS RACISM, MODELING AS 'VOGUE' CELEBRATES HER IMPACT

      Naomi Campbell broke the mold, and continues to even today. The supermodel hit the industry in the mid-80s, and is still strutting catwalks and covering glossies three decades later. Vogue celebrates Campbell on November's front cover, and inside, hails her as an iconic model but "a trailblazer, lightning rod, truth-teller, provocateur and—most of all—mentor and mother figure to models the world over," including recent breakout stars Adut Akech and Ugbad Abdi.

      RACISM

      Campbell said: "I never used to say the word racism; I just used to say, it's territorialism. I never wanted people to say that I used that as an excuse, that I was throwing that word out. Now I'm happy that everyone's all on the same page, that everyone feels comfortable to come out about their experiences without feeling some stigma. But for me, nothing's changed. I'm going to speak the same way."

      She's over the "angry Black woman" trope she said. Campbell told Vogue: "I am quite over it. Is it now that we have permission to speak? Well, I have always spoken."

      She continued, "There were a few things that I would do when I was younger that I was told were bad for my race… Now the things I do are not just for me anymore. I think more of my culture and my race, as opposed to thinking about just me."

      QUARANTINE

      Campbell also shared how her life changed during the pandemic.

      "I stopped smoking during quarantine, but a friend of mine killed himself, and it really affected me. I called my guy in Israel—­he's great for sugar and cigarettes and addiction stuff—and we're going to do a session. He told me to just get through this week first."

      She also said goodbye to her 77-year-old grandmother Ruby, who lived in London. "I just knew I needed to get to her. I was panicked to fly over, but I'm so grateful that I decided to come."

      Campbell said: "A lot of the things Grandma taught me as a child came into play in lockdown. I was quite happy to be on my own. I know how to cook. I know how to clean. It's actually good to get to really know every nook and cranny of your home. I mean, I have to be really honest."

      NEXT GENERATION

      Cambell takes a maternal approach to the next generation, like Abdi and the daughter of her pal Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber.

      Gerber told Vogue: "Naomi has always championed authentic relationships with designers, editors, photographers, et cetera, and has always encouraged me to do the same."

    • SACHA BARON COHEN TALKS IMPERSONATING TRUMP, 'OVERT' RACISM

      Sacha Baron Cohen encountered a number of challenges while filming the sequel to Borat, set for Amazon October 23rd. He spoke with The New York Times about the experience.

      IMPERSONATION

      At one point, Cohen said he snuck into a Mike Pence speech by dressing as President Donald Trump. "Bear in mind, I spent five hours in makeup that morning with the prosthetic team changing my face into Trump's face," he noted.

      "This fat suit is huge," Cohen continued. "It's a 56-inch fat suit to turn my waist into Trump's because we had estimated that was the most realistic."

      Cohen added: "Then I ended up hiding in the bathroom, listening to conservative men go to the toilet for five hours until I broke into the room. We were surrounded by Secret Service and police and internal security."

      HARDEST THING

      Cohen said: "The hardest thing I had to do was, I lived in character for five days in this lockdown house."

      "I was waking up, having breakfast, lunch, dinner, going to sleep as Borat when I lived in a house with two conspiracy theorists," he continued. "You can't have a moment out of character."

      RACISM

      Asked about the difference between making the first and second film, he said: "In 2005, you needed a character like Borat who was misogynist, racist, anti-Semitic to get people to reveal their inner prejudices.

      "Now those inner prejudices are overt. Racists are proud of being racists," he added, saying that Trump was "an overt racist, an overt fascist'' who "allows the rest of society to change their dialogue, too".

    • WILL HARRY AND WILLIAM HEAL RIFT?

      Much has been made of Prince Harry and Prince William's frayed relationship in recent months. The pair's rift was in the works for years, but came to a head when Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down from their senior royal roles, observers say. Now, they must repair their breach quickly, or risk making it permanent, historian Robert Lacey tells Newsweek.

      The Battle of Brothers author says that the situation must be resolved by the end of the 12-month review of Harry and Meghan's new arrangement, which is set for March.

      He told Newsweek: "Meghan's style, the way she swept into the palace, the way she brought her own American advisers with her, rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way. So there was that personal animus in those negotiations and I fear there remains to this day an obstacle to reconciliation."

      Lacey continued: "The palace establishment, the courtier establishment, remains reluctant to adapt or bend in any way to accommodate what Harry and Meghan stand for or want to pursue. I no longer rate highly the chances of reconciliation. I think whatever gets decided in March has pretty well got to be for the foreseeable future."

      One major bone of contention is Harry's desire to retain his post as Captain General of the Royal Marines. He stepped down when he left his senior role, but he was hoping to win it back. Rumors have swirled that William will instead retain it. If so, it will likely be the last straw for Harry.

      Lacey told Newsweek: "The Royal Marines position is in abeyance until the end of the review period. There have been stories that it's going to be assigned to William. Were that to be the case, that would be the end of it."

      DOREEN MONTALVO DIES AT 56: Broadway and TV actress Doreen Montalvo has died at age 56 after a sudden illness. "It's been my honor and extreme pleasure to have worked with Doreen, as her manager. From the minute we met it was like we had been friends for years. Kindred spirits, for sure," Steve Maihack captioned a tribute to Montalvo. "This last year had been such an exciting one for Doreen with the filming of both the IN THE HEIGHTS and WEST SIDE STORY feature films, as well as her return to Broadway in MRS DOUBTFIRE. Montalvo appeared in the original Broadway cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights. Miranda tweeted: "It is monstrously unfair that we did not get more time with her. More shows with her. More music with her. More life with her. When someone brings that much joy and love to everyone they meet, that much commitment to the craft they love… it's unfair. And heartbreaking."
