Chris Pratt says Harrison Ford scared him away from playing Indiana Jones

When Harrison Ford hangs up his whip, Chris Pratt won't be picking it up anytime soon — lest he be haunted for life. On the Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor dismissed long-standing rumors that he'll replace Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, which have been circulating since at least 2015. "That's not anything that is real," Pratt said, though he didn't fully deny ever being in talks for the gig. But in 2019, Ford, who's returning for a fifth Indy flick next year, joked that "nobody else" will play the character, and "when I'm gone, he's gone." Though it sounds like he was just kidding, Pratt says Ford's comment "was enough to scare me" away from the part. "Am I gonna get haunted by the ghost of Harrison Ford one day when he dies if I play [Indiana Jones]?" Pratt wondered — which is actually a far more enticing movie idea than an Indiana Jones reboot.

Emily Ratajkowski reportedly divorcing alleged 'serial cheater' husband

She's gone, girl. Emily Ratajkowski and her husband, Sebastian Bear-McClard, are planning to get divorced after he allegedly cheated on her, Page Six reported Friday, citing a source close to Ratajkowski. "Yeah, he cheated," the source said. "He's a serial cheater. It's gross. He's a dog." The outlet previously reported on speculation that the two broke up after the 31-year-old model and actress was spotted without her wedding ring, though he apparently was seen wearing his as recently as Wednesday. Ratajkowski married Bear-McClard, a movie producer with whom she shares a 1-year-old child, in February 2018, just two weeks after they confirmed they were dating. But she told W magazine they knew each other for "a long time" before that. "He likes to joke, like, 'Yeah, everyone thinks we got married quickly,'' she said, '"but you vetted me for two years.'"

Dave Coulier recalls 1st time listening to 'You Oughta Know' by his ex, Alanis Morissette

What's it like hearing a hit break-up song written by your ex? Dave Coulier oughta know. The Full House star on SiriusXM's "Norton & Sam Roberts" recounted the first time he listened to his ex-girlfriend Alanis Morissette's song "You Oughta Know," which fans have speculated was written about him. When the song came on the radio, Coulier said, he initially didn't even realize it was Morissette singing. "And then I'm listening to the lyrics going, 'Oh no," he said. "'Oh, I can't be this guy.'" Morissette has insisted the song isn't actually about Coulier. But the actor says that when he listened to her album, Jagged Little Pill, he found "a lot of familiar stuff in there" from their relationship and realized, "I may have really hurt this woman." It sounds like they're on good terms now, though. Coulier says when they reconnected years later, Morissette "couldn't have been sweeter," so she apparently didn't have to cut him out of her life completely.

Demi Lovato describes getting stitches after smacking head on a large crystal

Somehow, aliens are to blame for this. Demi Lovato chatted Thursday on Jimmy Kimmel Live about getting stitches shortly before the appearance due to a bizarre crystal snafu. The "Sorry Not Sorry" singer recounted an incident where they accidentally smacked their head on a "really heavy" and sharp amethyst they have just lying around the house due to being a "huge fan of crystals." Don't you hate it when that happens? "I went to bend down to pick something up, and I didn't see the amethyst, and I hit my head," Lovato said. "And I had to get three stitches last night in my face." Lovato previously posted a TikTok showing their bloody forehead after the accident, though the magic of bangs (and wigs) meant the aftermath wasn't noticeable on Kimmel. Still, might we gently recommend moving any giant, sharp crystals out of face-smacking range from now on?

Noah Schnapp: Yep, Will is gay on 'Stranger Things'

Where there's a Will, there's a gay. Stranger Things star Noah Schnapp has officially confirmed what was very strongly suggested in season four but not technically stated on screen: Yes, his character, Will Byers, is gay. That's been a popular fan theory for a few seasons, and season four's second volume included a scene where Will breaks down in tears after talking about being different. Schnapp previously said Will's sexuality was "up to the audience's interpretation" — but he now tells Variety that's no longer the case. "Now it's 100 percent clear that he is gay and he does love Mike," Schnapp said, adding that he's glad the show built up to this and didn't make the character "all of a sudden be gay." Granted, Will didn't come out of the closet or say the word gay anywhere in the finale. But to be fair, there simply wasn't enough time for that in the … *checks notes* … two-and-a-half-hour episode.
