Today's top entertainment and celebrity news
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck grab Dunkin’
Just about one month after their Las Vegas elopement, newlyweds Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were recently spotted consummating their marriage — i.e. grabbing coffee and a few treats from Dunkin' — in Santa Monica, California. Get your heads out of the gutter! In photos of the PDA-filled pit stop, Affleck, who is very famously a fan of the Massachusetts donut chain, can be seen gripping the two things he loves most (a Dunkin' bag and Lopez herself) while the pair share a kiss next to a romantic recycling bin. Ah, the honeymoon phase. And, as if that weren't Affleck-core enough, the Argo actor was also wearing a green "Believe in Boston" t-shirt. Listen, who says you can't have it all?
Olivia Wilde knocks Jason Sudeikis for serving her in ‘the most aggressive manner possible’
Actress and director Olivia Wilde has claimed ex Jason Sudeikis meant to "embarrass" and "threaten" her when she was served custody papers during a CinemaCon presentation back in April, despite his statements otherwise. "Jason's actions were clearly intended to threaten me and catch me off guard," Wilde argued in court documents obtained Wednesday by The Daily Mail. "He could have served me discreetly, but instead he chose to serve me in the most aggressive manner possible." The Booksmart director was speaking in front of roughly 4,000 people when she was handed legal documents regarding custody of her children, Otis, 8, and Daisy, 5. Sudeikis has said he is "very, very sorry that the incident marred [Wilde's] special moment," and that the papers were supposed to be served at Heathrow Airport. Woof, Jason — sounds like maybe you should worry, darling.
Shawn Mendes is ‘taking it easy’ post-tour cancellation
After canceling his tour for reasons of mental health, Shawn Mendes is relaxing like … well, like a normal person, to be honest. Speaking with TMZ outside of LAX, Mendes said he's spending his newfound extra time in therapy, hanging out with his family, and doing some of the things he "hasn't really done over the last few years," like getting dinner with friends. When asked what fans should do about their now-defunct travel and hotel plans, Mendes appeared optimistic: "I think we can figure it out. I mean, everything's kind of workable," the singer replied. And you know what? He's right — take it easy, Shawn. We can all sing along to your Netflix concert film and stream "Stitches" in the meantime.
Ben Stiller doesn’t know how many people are watching ‘Severance’
In quite the meta moment, it appears the corporate overlords at Apple TV won't share with director and executive producer Ben Stiller exactly how well his show Severance is performing. In an interview with Decider, Stiller said Apple doesn't "tell you the numbers" when sharing a show's streaming service data. "[Y]ou get these graphs and charts, like I said, that have, like, peaks and valleys. But you don't know what the baseline is," Stiller said. "I guess [it] could be like, based on 100 people or could be like, 200 million people. We don't know." In the meantime, at least the Zoolander star can rest easy knowing his thrilling psychological workplace drama snagged an impressive 14 Emmy nominations. Though we can't help but wonder … what if his so-called "innie" is the one with the numbers?
Update: 10:40 a.m. ET on Aug. 17, 2022: This story has been updated to reflect the correct number of Emmy nominations for Severance.
Amanda Seyfried would have loved more Hollywood intimacy coordinators
After Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean denounced on-set intimacy coordinators for their supposed adverse effect on the "spontaneity" of romantic scenes, The Dropout's Amanda Seyfried has admitted she would have actually preferred working with more of them. "Being 19, walking around without my underwear on – like, are you kidding me? How did I let that happen?" Seyfried told Net-A-Porter, after conceding that she thankfully emerged from her early Hollywood years "pretty unscathed." "Oh, I know why: I was 19 and I didn't want to upset anybody, and I wanted to keep my job. That's why." Nowadays, the Mamma Mia actress is far more sure of herself — and for good reason. "There's a respect level that I have never felt so fully around me," she said, and it's one that "has nothing to do with any level of fame or recognition or critical acclaim. … I'm respected because I'm 36 years old and I know who the f--k I am."
