Margot Robbie was sort of roommates with John Cena

Approximately "five seconds" after meeting John Cena, Margot Robbie confessed she slept in a room with him for two years. Okay, let her explain. The Harley Quinn actress revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that years before she starred with Cena in The Suicide Squad, she had a boyfriend who was obsessed with the wrestler and even had a cardboard cutout of him. "So I slept in a room for two years with a life-size cardboard cutout of John Cena," Robbie said, adding that the cardboard Cena would frequently startle her at night. To even things out, guest host Anthony Anderson presented Cena with a gift: a cardboard cutout of Robbie. So there, now it's not weird at all!

Emilia Clarke confirms Marvel is super intense about preventing spoilers

Emilia Clarke, blink twice if you're okay! On Wednesday, the Game of Thrones actress confirmed both that she'll be in the upcoming Marvel series Secret Invasion, and that the Disney-owned comic book franchise really is that intense about preventing leaks and spoilers. "I'm already scared," Clarke joked (?) on The Tonight Show. "The first people I spoke to from Marvel were their security team and I am convinced that there is a man outside my house — there's been a car parked there for a long time — and I swear to God, he's undercover." While host Jimmy Fallon pointed out that Clarke is already pretty good at keeping secrets from her time on GOT, she admitted, "that's what I thought, but they schooled me." Seems secrets really are worth more than silver or sapphires.

'13 Reasons Why' star Tommy Dorfman comes out as transgender

For Tommy Dorfman, best known for her role on Netflix's 13 Reasons Why, Thursday brings a "reintroduction to me as a woman." Dorfman, who portrayed Ryan Shaver on the hit Netflix show, came out as transgender in an interview with Time, announcing that she uses she/her pronouns and revealing she has been "privately identifying and living as a woman" for the past year, having "made a transition medically." The actress added that "today is about clarity," while noting that she will still be going by the name Tommy. "I'm not changing my name," Dorfman said. "I'm named after my mom's brother who passed a month after I was born, and I feel very connected to that name, to an uncle who held me as he was dying. This is an evolution of Tommy. I'm becoming more Tommy."

Paulina Porzikova wants to move on from Aaron Sorkin but Hinge won't let her

Ah, the woes of online dating as a supermodel. Paulina Porzikova recently confirmed her split from screenwriter Aaron Sorkin via Instagram by referencing known sworn-enemy waterfowl: "It doesn't matter how much we may wish we were birds of a feather - we're still a duck and a goose." Just as a duck would (or a goose, not sure who is who), she's trying to move on. But Hinge will not let her. The model called out the dating app on Instagram, explaining her name seems to be against the guidelines. She used a nickname and was able to land "a few nice dates," but now, "when I need it," she's been kicked off again. What is a girl to do?

Lil Uzi Vert is trying to buy a planet

Lil Uzi Vert was trying to "surprise everyone" by purchasing a planet, but Grimes let the cat out of the bag. Grimes shared a tweet about WASP-127b, a planet 1.3 times larger than Jupiter, and wrote: "Apparently Lil Uzi Vert owns this planet - just a heads up." And while we are grateful for the heads up, it seems she was mistaken. The rapper noted he is still working on purchasing WASP-127b — from who? Unclear. To which Grimes responded: "Documentation almost complete for Lil Uzi Vert to legally claim wasp-127b - this is huge! First human to legally own a planet." According to whose laws? Unclear. But it seems like these two are really excited about it!
