Kevin Bacon hilariously reveals why he had to return wife Kyra Sedgwick's engagement ring

No Comments Entertainment News

Steve Jennings/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Kevin Bacon has enjoyed 32 blissful years of married life to actress Kyra Sedgwick, but the Footloose star reveals that he made a major error when popping the question.

Appearing recently on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 62-year-old actor confessed that he didn’t seek a second opinion when picking out the engagement ring, which led to an awkward Christmas Eve proposal.

“I really, really didn’t want anybody else to know [that I was proposing,]” Bacon admitted, saying he regrets not consulting any friends or family members about the ring because, “I’m really not, like, a jewelry guy… I’m just not good at picking something like that out.”

Sedgwick, now 52, apparently hated the ring he stuffed into her stocking, but didn’t make her feelings about it known until three months later.

“We’re lying in bed and she wakes up in the middle of the night, and she’s crying and she’s crying, and she can’t even say what’s going on,” the Golden Globe winner recalled.  “I thought she was breaking up with me!”

Thankfully, that wasn’t the case, but it wasn’t easy to hear his future bride admit, “I don’t like the ring!”

“I talked her off the ledge after that,” Bacon joked, adding he promised he would “take it back.”

“She felt so terrible,” he added, saying he assured Sedgwick by claiming he didn’t care about the ring but appreciated her honesty.

The couple wed in 19888 and share two children together; Sosie Bacon, 29, and Travis Bacon, 31.

No Comments Entertainment News

ABC(LOS ANGELES) — “Holy Moses,” is right — Gwyneth Paltrow is having a hard time accepting that her youngest child is 15-years-old.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the Oscar winner doted on Moses to celebrate his latest birthday milestone.

“Holy Moses I can’t believe you are 15 today,” Paltrow gushed while sharing two photos of her son. “You are the dreamiest, sweetest, most brilliant guy ever. I love you so much, you can’t fathom it.”

The first photo is a closeup of Moses’ face and messy hair while the second shows the teen doing a kickflip on a skateboard.

“Happy birthday you little shredder,” the proud mom concluded.

Several of Paltrow’s famous friends flooded Moses with birthday wishes of their own, such as Reese Witherspoon sweetly remarking, “Happy 15th Moses!”

Paltrow shares Moses and daughter Apple — who turns 17 in May — with ex-husband, Chris Martin.

The Iron Man star has since remarried director Brad Falchuk.

Marvel Studios releases hour-long version of Daniel Brühl dancing after #ReleaseTheZemoCut trends

No Comments Entertainment News

Marvel Studios/Chuck Zlotnick(LOS ANGELES) — For fans of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, a highlight of last Friday’s episode was seeing Daniel Brühl’s manipulative Baron Zemo getting down on a Madripoor dance floor. 

The fleeting shot of the Captain America: Civil War baddie fist-pumping like The Situation at Jenks was enough to inspire fans to get #ReleaseTheZemoCut trending, when it was revealed more dancing footage was left on the editing room floor. 

Unlike Warner Bros., which took years of #ReleaseTheSnyderCut trending to result in Zack Snyder’s Justice League being released, Marvel Studios acted quickly, releasing to YouTube a one hour super-cut of Bruhl shaking his money maker.

“One Hour Dancing Zemo” has more than 2.1 million views and counting — in less than 24 hours. 

A new episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier drops today on Disney+. 

Marvel Studios is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC Audio.

New poll finds nearly half the country would vote for Dwayne Johnson if he ran for president

No Comments Entertainment News

Josh Jacks/Star Max/GC Images(LOS ANGELES) — President Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson?  A new poll found that if the Jumanji star decided to jump into the next presidential election, he’d have a decent chance of taking over the White House.

According to a poll from Piplsay, which surveyed over 30,000 people, a good chunk of Americans — 46 percent to be exact — are hoping Johnson runs for president.

The former WWE star wasn’t the only celebrity included in the poll, as Piplsay also focused on another celebrity that has expressed interest in kickstarting a political career.

Matthew McConaughey, who has flirted with the idea of throwing his hat into Texas’ upcoming gubernatorial race, also has strong support among the American people.

Approximately 41 percent of respondents say they would support the Dallas Buyers Club star’s bid for governor.

Another celebrity Americans would like to see run for president was Angelina Jolie, with 30 percent of respondents expressing interest in seeing her run for political office.

In fourth was Oprah Winfrey with 27 percent support while Tom Hanks rounded out the top five at 22 percent.

The poll also found that Will Smith was the most popular candidate among Millennials and Gen Zers, and he ranked sixth overall with 21 percent of the vote. 

The poll also asked participants about their feelings about Hollywood stars running for public office, with 45 percent of the overall consensus agreeing that celebrities “are free to do what they want.”

When asked if movie stars and singers are cut out for politics, Americans again expressed optimism with 39 percent saying “if they have the political aptitude,” they will make a good public servant.

However, a large majority of respondents recognized the sway celebrities have over the population, with 81 percent of poll takers agreeing that the Hollywood elite are capable of influencing public opinion.

Here's how the cast of 'Glee' celebrated Naya Rivera at the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards

No Comments Entertainment News

The 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards/Getty Images for GLAAD(LOS ANGELES) — The cast of Glee came together to honor the late Naya Rivera on Thursday and celebrate the indelible mark she left on television. Rivera played Santana Lopez, an openly queer character, on the popular sitcom.

16 Glee alums gathered together via Zoom to hail their late co-star during the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards, with singer Demi Lovato kicking off the tribute.

Lovato played Santana’s girlfriend, Dani, in the series.

“I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya’s girlfriend Dani on Glee,” the “Anyone” singer announced. “The character Naya played, Santana Lopez, was groundbreaking for closeted queer girls, like I was at the time, and her ambition and accomplishments inspired Latina women all over the world.”

“It’s been 10 years since Santana Lopez came out,” remarked Lovato.  “Look at what LGBTQ teens have done in a decade.  Imagine what we can do in the next one.”

Among the former Glee stars paying tribute to Rivera were Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Matthew Morrison, Darren Criss, Heather Morris, Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, Alex Newell and several others — to name a few.

Lynch, who played the hilarious nemesis Sue Sylvester, honored Rivera by recalling how impressed she was by the young actress’ talent.

“I remember when Naya became a regular cast member.  She was a dancer and I always thought she was cute,” said Lynch. “And then Ryan [Murphy] started giving her lines and I was like ‘Wow! This girl is really something.'”

Others recalled the inside jokes and the awe they felt when watching her perform.  Morrison, who played Will Schuester, mentioned how he and Rivera became better friends after the two became parents.

“Her best role was being a mom,” added Ushkowitz.

Rivera died in an accidental drowning last summer.
