Bella Hadid regrets getting a nose job when she was 14
Regrets, she's had a few. In a new Vogue cover story, Bella Hadid admitted she got a nose job when she was 14, something she now regrets at age 25. "I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors," she told Vogue. "I think I would have grown into it." She also opened up about being subjected to claims that she's the "uglier sister" of Gigi Hadid, noting, "Unfortunately when you get told things so many times, you do just believe it." At the same time, Hadid denied other plastic surgery rumors, including allegations she has been trying to look like Carla Bruni. "People think I fully f--ked with my face because of one picture of me as a teenager looking puffy," she said. "I'm pretty sure you don't look the same now as you did at 13, right? I have never used filler. Let's just put an end to that." And to those who say "I've gotten my eyes lifted or whatever," Hadid shot back, "It's face tape! The oldest trick in the book."
Brian Cox 'sort of' regrets roasting Johnny Depp
Regrets, he's also had a few. Brian Cox chatted on Jimmy Kimmel Live about his recent memoir, in which he goes off on Johnny Depp as "so overrated." But the Succession star now says he has some regrets about this, and even wrote an addendum for the paperback version. "I just thought I was being a bit harsh," Cox said. "You know what it's like? You go for the easy joke. And I went for the easy joke." He added, "I sort of regretted it because I'm not like that normally, but I was just being a bit glib." These regrets may have something to do with the fact that Depp's famously passionate army of defenders has been making their displeasure known. "I've heard a lot from his … they call it a fan club, but I think it's some kind of CIA agency that works on his behalf," Cox joked. "And they weren't too happy."
Stephanie Beatriz recorded a song from 'Encanto' while in labor
Stephanie Beatriz was waiting on a miracle of her own when recording one of Encanto's key songs. Beatriz, the voice of Mirabel in Disney's animated movie, revealed to Variety she was in labor when she recorded "Waiting on a Miracle." "I didn't want to tell anybody at Disney because I didn't want anyone to freak out, but I was already having some contractions when we were scheduled to record that day," she said. "I was like 'Well, fingers crossed I finish the song before [the baby] comes!'" Director Byron Howard confirmed he had no idea this was going on. "We knew she was very, very, very, very ready to have that baby," Howard said. "But she did not tell us she was almost, almost ready." Beatriz did, indeed, finish recording the song, and she ended up giving birth just one day later— meaning it won't be long before her daughter is old enough to annoy the heck out of her family singing "We Don't Talk About Bruno" all day.
Ken Jennings will now have more free time to permanently host 'Jeopardy!'
We'll take "reading the game show tea leaves" for $1,000. Jeopardy!, inexplicably, has still not named a permanent new host, but on Tuesday, ABC revealed some eyebrow-raising news about a different game show. The network's The Chase has contestants compete against some of the best trivia players ever, including Ken Jennings. But ABC announced Tuesday that Jennings will not return for the upcoming season that premieres in May. Might that be because he has a real chance of being named permanent Jeopardy! host, despite reportedly being passed over the first time due to his bad tweets? What is … maybe? Jennings has recently been sharing hosting duties on a temporary basis with Mayim Bialik — but she, too, is gunning for the permanent job. She told ET this week, "What I know is I'm hosting until May 6, and beyond that, hopefully." Let's cross our fingers an announcement arrives around that time, though don't put it past the Jeopardy! producers to drag this out until we're all dead.
Kristen Stewart almost got killed in 'Scream 4'
Kristen Stewart: Oscar-nominated actress, Twilight star, and Scream superfan. In an interview with Slant Magazine, Stewart revealed she was originally set to appear in 2011's Scream 4 at the height of Twilight mania — and get killed off in the opening scene. "They created a whole sequence where a lot of people got killed to emulate the Drew thing," Stewart said, referring to Drew Barrymore's shock death in Scream's cold open. But Stewart says she turned the role down. "I was like, 'I can't do a Drew,'" she said. "I can't touch that." Scream 4's opening kill sequence ended up featuring stars like Kristen Bell and Anna Paquin. Stewart has previously spoken about her Scream fandom, telling W Magazine "I love that series so much" and admitting she got starstruck running into Neve Campbell. A sixth Scream is in the works as we speak, and Stewart told Slant she'd be open to appearing. "I would read the script," she said. Make her the killer, you cowards!
