1. Rebel Wilson comes out and introduces her 'Disney princess'

Rebel Wilson is having a pitch-perfect Pride Month. The actress revealed Thursday she's a member of the LGBTQ+ community, introducing the world to her girlfriend, Ramona Agruma. On Instagram, she shared a photo of herself with Agruma, writing, "I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess." She added, "#loveislove." Wilson and Agruma have previously been seen together, but it wasn't known that they were dating. She revealed in a podcast interview in May she was in a relationship with someone she met through a friend after spending time "on and off" Raya. "He had known both of us for at least five years and he thought we would hit it off — and then we did!" she recounted. Isn't it romantic?

2. Jennifer Aniston and Sebastian Stan want to do a romcom together

Did Jennifer Aniston and Sebastian Stan just stumble into Hollywood's next great romcom? The two sat down as part of Variety's Actors on Actors series, and they came to an exciting conclusion by the end: they want to do a romantic comedy together. After Stan mentioned his love of Notting Hill, the Friends star questioned why romcoms have "such a bad rap these days," asking, "Wouldn't that be fun to do one?" Nearly simultaneously, they both seemed to get the same idea: "Wanna do it?" Aniston asked, to which Stan said he'd make one with her in "a second." They even started to work out some logistics, suggesting they'd shoot it in New York. "Yeah, yeah," Stan said. "That sounds great. They could probably write that very quickly." If someone doesn't have a script over to them by the end of the month, Hollywood as an institution has failed.

3. Britney Spears is reportedly getting married today

Britney Spears is ready to say "I do" one more time. The pop star and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, are getting married on Thursday in an "intimate" wedding ceremony, which about 100 guests will attend, TMZ reports. Spears didn't confirm the news, but Page Six snapped photos showing their wedding preparation was underway and that they have a tent set up at her home in Los Angeles. According to People, some of the celebrity guests will include Madonna, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow. TMZ's report said some of the final details of the wedding are "still being worked out" and it hadn't yet been decided who would give Spears away at the altar, despite the fact that this article was published the night before the ceremony. Hey, Madonna will be there — just saying!

4. Multiple new 'Ghostbusters' films are on the way

Sony apparently ain't afraid of exhausting the Ghostbusters IP. The studio celebrated something called Ghostbusters day by teasing two new films in the franchise that are in the works. One will be an animated movie directed by Jennifer Kluska and Chris Prynoski, which is separate from an animated television series that's also in the works at Netflix. Into the Ghost-Verse, perhaps? Then there's the live-action sequel to 2021's Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which will return to New York City, where the original films were set. The sequel is codenamed Firehouse, and director Jason Reitman teased it as the "next chapter in the Spengler family story." Yes, who knew that this entire time, Ghostbusters is actually a saga about ... the Spenglers? A new Ghostbusters comic series and VR "training simulator" are also on the way. Meanwhile, the odds of seeing any sort of continuation of the characters from the 2016 female-led movie sure don't look good.

5. Chris Pratt: I 's--t my pants' during on-set prank

It was just a prank, bro! On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Chris Pratt recalled his hilarious on-set prank that involved … pretending to be dead? While working on his new show The Terminal List, the Jurassic World star said there was a scene where his character is caught in a mudslide, and he had to get buried alive. So he had the "not smart" idea to, while covered up in dirt and breathing through a straw, stop moving "for about 30 seconds" to freak everyone out. "What I failed to realize, after 30 seconds of not moving, thinking it'd be funny, is that I actually couldn't move," Pratt said. "I could only move my right hand." After about a minute-and-a-half of struggling, he finally crawled out, coughing up dirt — leading everyone to praise him for his incredible acting. "I was like, yeah, I s--t my pants," he said. "That's how committed I was." The spirit of Andy Dwyer is clearly alive and well.
