Sebastian Stan Worried About Tom Hiddleston During Taylor Swift Romance

Actor Sebastian Stan had “extreme concern” for his Avengers: Infinity War co-star Tom Hiddleston when he embarked on a high-profile relationship with Taylor Swift.
The Brit famously enjoyed a whirlwind romance with the pop superstar during the summer of 2016, and Sebastian admits he was surprised bythe unexpected pairing when news of the fling first hit headlines.
“It was one of awe and extreme concern, obsession and yet at the same time… I don’t know, I was really worried, mainly for him,” Sebastian smiled as he explained his reaction to the news on late night show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
“You know, love is quick and hard,” he added.
However, Sebastian never actually got to discuss the romance with Tom himself, because it was over within weeks.
“I actually forgot about that incident,” he quipped of the short-lived affair, which occurred not long after Taylor split from DJ Calvin Harris.
Sebastian’s comments emerge a year after Tom insisted his connection with Taylor was genuine, and not just for publicity.
“Taylor is an amazing woman. She’s generous and kind and lovely, and we had the best time,” he told GQ magazine in March, 2017. “Of course it was real.”
However, he soon made it clear he was no longer interested in discussing that part of his love life.
In a subsequent chat with Britain’s The Telegraph, Tom appeared to take offense when asked if he regretted “the publicity and gossip the romance engendered”.
“What should I regret, in your mind?” he responded. “I would rather not talk about this, if that’s alright.”
“Everyone is entitled to a private life,” he continued. “I love what I do and I dedicate myself with absolute commitment to making great art and great entertainment, and in my mind I don’t conflict the two. My work is in the public sphere and I have a private life. And those two things are separate.”
Taylor and Tom were inseparable during their brief romance and she even accompanied him to Australia, where he was filming Thor: Ragnarok.

Meghan Markle’s Dad To Walk Her Down The Aisle At Royal Wedding

Meghan Markle’s father will walk her down the aisle when she marries Prince Harry, British royal officials have confirmed.
Her half-brother, Thomas Markle Jr., had claimed that Meghan was planning to shun her dad Thomas Sr. by not inviting him – but a spokesperson for royal residence Kensington Palace said both he and her mother Doria would attend the ceremony in Windsor, England on 19 May.
“The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding,” the palace representative explained.
The Suits actress’s parents will travel to the U.K. several days before their daughter officially becomes a royal to meet their new family – including Queen Elizabeth II and Harry’s dad Prince Charles.
In a letter published by InTouch magazine Meghan’s estranged half-brother slammed her and wrote that her dad hadn’t been invited.
Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, will also welcome the family of his late mother Princess Diana, to their wedding, as her three siblings,
Lady Sarah McCorquodale, Charles, the 9th Earl Spencer and Baroness Jane Fellowes are all invited.
“Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honored that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day,” the palace statement read. Diana divorced Prince Charles in 1996 and tragically died in a car crash in Paris, France at the age of 36 the following year.
In their announcement palace officials also said they will make more details of the couple’s plans public in the two weeks before the wedding, including who will act as bridesmaids and page boys. They also revealed that Harry and his brother Prince William, who is acting as Best Man, were likely to arrive for the ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on foot to allow them to greet well-wishers.

Grand Jury Subpoenas Issued In Harvey Weinstein Criminal Case – Report

Manhattan District Attorney (D.A.) officials have reportedly issued grand jury subpoenas in their criminal investigation of Harvey Weinstein.
Sources close to the case tell The Blast that New York prosecutors have issued summons to possible witnesses to Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct. The U.S. gossip website reports that the subpoenas requested evidence potentially including; phone records, e-mails and financial records related to deals with the shamed movie mogul, his firm The Weinstein Company and other businesses he owned.
Detectives from the New York Police Department (NYPD) launched an investigation into Weinstein after numerous actresses and ex-employees made misconduct allegations against him ranging from harassment to rape. In America, grand juries are used to assess serious criminal investigations before any charges are brought.
In a statement to The Blast, Weinstein’s representatives said he is yet to face indictment and that they were confident he would be exonerated even if he faces a grand jury.
“The fact that a grand jury has been empaneled does not mean that criminal charges are forthcoming,” a spokesperson said, adding that the producer will be able to present evidence to the grand jury with the aim of convincing prosecutors not to file criminal charges.
“We are confident that we will prevail in convincing the D.A. that Mr. Weinstein has not committed any crime whatsoever,” his reps added. “The rep added the reviews have been going on for months.”
The disgraced film impresario, who oversaw films including Shakespeare in Love, The Artist and The King’s Speech, has also reportedly hired Alan Dershowitz, the famed defense lawyer who aided O.J. Simpson during his murder trial, as part of his legal team.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among the actresses who have claimed Weinstein harassed them, while Rose McGowan and Paz de la Huerta have accused him of rape.

Martin Scorsese Caught Up In Foreclosure Threat

Martin Scorsese is facing the threat of foreclosure on his New York townhouse, following a payment dispute involving his building contractor.
The legendary director hired Smith Restoration bosses to carry out remodeling work on his Manhattan home a few years ago, but the builders have been accused of failing to settle an $18,000 bill for supplies from officials at Extech Building Materials.
Extech chiefs received a lien for the unpaid invoice from their suppliers in 2015, and they are still waiting for Smith Restoration to pay up, according to the New York Post.
They filed a foreclosure suit against both the contractor and Scorsese over the longrunning issue, but the filmmaker’s attorney, Steven R. Hochberg, insists he has nothing to do with the claims.
“This is is a dispute between a contractor and a material supplier, which names Mr. Scorsese only because he is the owner of the property where materials were allegedly supplied,” Hochberg declares in a statement issued to People.com.
“Mr. Scorsese fulfilled all of his obligations under his contract with Smith, and paid Smith in full, but allegedly Smith failed to pay the material supplier.”
Hochberg reveals Scorsese is prepared to launch his own legal action if required. “If this cannot be resolved between the contractor and the material supplier, we will pursue all legal remedies,” he adds.
The Goodfellas director purchased the five-storey property for $12.5 million in 2007.

Kris Jenner ‘sprung Into Action’ After Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal

Kris Jenner “sprung into action with love” when she heard the reports that Tristan Thompson had cheated on her heavily pregnant daughter Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe gave birth to daughter True, her first child with Tristan, on 12 April – just days after rumors emerged that the basketball player had been unfaithful on numerous occasions during their relationship and her pregnancy.
She’s since maintained a resolute silence about the claims, leaving it to her family to discuss how she’s doing on various TV shows.
It was momager Kris’ turn on Friday, as she discussed with Ellen DeGeneres how she and her other daughters reacted when they heard the claims of Tristan’s infidelity.
“I think we do what we always do, and that’s spring into action with love,” she explained. “And we all hopped on a plane and flew to Cleveland (where Khloe is currently living), because that’s what we know to do. I’m there to support my kids no matter what happens, and I just do the best I can, just like anybody else would for their family.
“There’s a lot of us, you know, so we all get together and we do things together and we’re a force to be reckoned with.”
Kris also revealed that she had Khloe’s doctor and nurse on the plane with her as they flew to Ohio, and wondered whether or not they would get there in time at one stage. But they did, and Kris got to witness the birth of her ninth grandchild.
Now Khloe is getting used to first-time motherhood and, while she’s struggling with some aspects, Kris admitted she’s doing “amazing”.
“I’m so proud of that kid,” Kris said, growing emotional. “I get choked up because she’s such a good mom and honestly it gets so emotional. I was in Cleveland last week and it was snowing and she was all nestled in, in the nursery, and the baby, and she’s just concentrating on that – being a mom, her baby, and I think that’s what her sisters are doing as well.
“She’s so excited about motherhood and trying to get the nursing thing down, which is a little tricky. She’s really trying – it’s really hard – so that was a little bit tricky when I was there. She’s figuring it out one day at a time and she’s just the best mom already.”

Mila Kunis In Tears As She Salutes Pal Zoe Saldana On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Zoe Saldana’s home is full of loud love, according to the actress’ best Hollywood pal Mila Kunis, who stepped up to salute the Avatar leading lady as she unveiled a star on the Walk of Fame on Thursday.
Calling Zoe “my ride or die, my friend, my partner in crime”, Kunis, who was joined at the Hollywood Boulevard ceremony by her husband Ashton Kutcher, revealed a visit to the Guardians of the Galaxy star’s home should come with earplugs.
“She is loud,” Mila said. “Like, no joke, her superpower is volume. Walk into Zoe’s house and they are screaming, in English, in Spanish, in Italian. It is the loudest love you’ll ever receive in your life. The loudest love I’ve ever heard.”
Kunis teared up as she looked at her pal, who was sobbing, and added, “But it makes sense. When this girl loves, she is all in. She’s all-in for her family, her friends, and all-in for her work… She is 100 per cent genuine.
“I admire you as a person, a wife, a mother, a sister, a businesswoman and as an actress. While the world knows you for the characters you have played, I have the privilege of knowing the working mom behind the scenes.”
Saldana was a wreck as she took to the stage to thank her pal and director James Cameron, who also paid tribute to his Avatar leading lady.
She told fans, “This is a moment that can be paralyzing, because you’re not used to sort of taking a moment to be present and take accolades and acknowledgement, because you’re so busy working and opening doors for yourself, so others can walk through these doors. It’s not until something like this happens that I’m shaken… and I’m compelled to sort of sit still and take things in, so I’m grateful.”
She added, “This star reminds me that I’ve been here for over two decades, you know, dreaming big and working hard, and now, I know that younger people will get to come here and, if I can be a point of reference and inspiration for them, because I look like them, because I represent something that they’ve felt excluded out of, which is a narrative, that they at least know that they are included, they are a part of the American fabric and they have what it takes to make anything happen. It means a lot.”
And raving about Mila after the ceremony, Zoe, who was joined at the ceremony by her husband Marco Perego and their three sons, Bowie, Cy and Zen, told Entertainment Tonight, “With all the actors that I’ve worked with that are now my friends, it feels just great to be able to grow with them and to see ourselves, not just as young people and thriving actors, but now just as parents and as producers, as professionals, as entrepreneurs. It’s just wonderful.”

Medical Bosses Deny Responsibility In Bill Paxton Wrongful Death Suit

Hospital officials are seeking the dismissal of a wrongful death lawsuit filed against them following the passing of actor Bill Paxton.
The Apollo 13 star died in February, 2017, a week after undergoing heart surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
In the legal action, filed by Paxton’s widow, Louise, and his kids, James and Lydia, earlier this year, they claimed Dr. Ali Khoynezhad provided “negligent diagnosis, management and treatment” to Paxton.
They also suggested a delay in surgery led to the 61-year-old suffering cardiogenic shock and a compromised right coronary artery.
However, Cedars-Sinai bosses and representatives for Dr. Khoynezhad, who is also named in the suit, have now hit back, insisting Paxton was fully aware of “certain dangers and risks involved” in the operation.
In their response, obtained by TheBlast.com, they go on to claim Paxton was more susceptible to complications because he had “an existing condition”.
They are asking the judge overseeing the case to dismiss the claims.
