'Good Morning America' co-hosts reportedly had 'months-long affair'

Two GMA anchors' ex-partners may not have had such a good morning. Married Good Morning America co-hosts T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach "have been locked in a passionate romance" for the past six months, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday — and the outlet published a series of photos of them together, including one where he's seen patting her butt and another where they're holding hands. Both have been married (to other people) since 2010. A separate report from Page Six provided more details, alleging Holmes and Robach had a "months-long affair" beginning in March around when they were training for the New York City half marathon together and were spotted "canoodling" in bars by May. Both reportedly left their spouses in August. "They were very careful behind the scenes to keep their affair secret," a staffer told Page Six. "The producers at GMA are shocked to hear they are having an affair." They're used to wake-up calls, but not like this.

Wild 'Cocaine Bear' trailer features a bear that does cocaine

The next time someone tells you Hollywood is out of ideas, show them the trailer for the movie about the murderous bear high on cocaine. Universal has dropped our wild first look at Cocaine Bear, which is about exactly what it sounds like: A bear that goes on a "coke-fueled rampage" after eating a bunch of cocaine. Believe it or not, it's based on a true story, and Elizabeth Banks directs. The cast includes Keri Russell, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Ray Liotta (posthumously), and Alden Ehrenreich, the latter of whom has the distinct honor of saying the incredible line, "The bear — it f--king did cocaine!" Cocaine Bear debuts in February, meaning in the first few months of 2023, we'll be getting a film about a cocaine bear, a film about "yassified Annabelle," and a Gerard Butler plane action-thriller simply titled … Plane. Folks, the movies are going to be alright.

Jim Carrey quits Twitter with cartoon of a naked lighthouse keeper

Alrighty then! Jim Carrey is allegedly quitting Twitter, and he decided he'd die (on social media) doing what he loves: Sharing a deeply bizarre cartoon. "I'm leaving Twitter, but 1st here's a cartoon I made with my friend Jimmy Hayward," he tweeted, posting a 76-second animation showing a completely naked lighthouse keeper singing in the rain before laughing hysterically. Sure, why not? Carrey didn't get into his reasons for quitting, but he recently shared a cartoon mocking Twitter CEO Elon Musk, depicting him as Captain Kirk and declaring he's "boldly going where no unbridled ego has gone before." The farewell cartoon, Carrey said, was "based on my painting of a crazy old Lighthouse Keeper, standing naked in a storm, summoning the angels and shining his lamp to guide us through a treacherous night." This sequel to Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse looks even weirder than the original.

James Cameron is already thinking about 'Avatar 7'

Is James Cameron prepared to die on the set of an Avatar movie? With Avatar: The Way of Water finally set to debut after an epic 13-year wait, the director confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter he has plans to continue the franchise all the way through Avatar 7, assuming there are still human beings alive to watch it at that point. "I'd be 89 by then," he said, possibly joking, but also maybe not. Sequels through Avatar 5 in 2028 (!) were already announced, and the third movie has been shot, though Cameron has admitted Avatar 4 and beyond might not happen if The Way of Water flops. If the series does continue beyond 5, though, he suggested he'd eventually pass the torch to another director. "I would have to train somebody how to do this," he said. The race to create a James Cameron clone is on.

'Andor' nearly featured the 1st F-bomb in 'Star Wars' history

We were on the verge of greatness! The season finale of Andor almost featured the first Star Wars F-bomb, one of actors has confirmed. A moment in the episode saw Fiona Shaw's character deliver a rousing speech, which she concludes by shouting, "Fight the Empire!" But after reading her lips, some fans were convinced she said something else that was dubbed over. Well, speaking (appropriately) to Empire, Andor star Denise Gough confirmed the line was originally different. "At the end, she didn't say, 'Fight the Empire!'" Gough revealed. "She said, 'F--k the Empire!' Which we were all really excited about. But we weren't allowed to keep it, obviously." This would have been the first time the F-word was uttered in a Star Wars property. It wasn't clear who made the decision to cut it, but we're assuming it was removed due to plans to save the first Star Wars F-bomb for when Baby Yoda says his first words.
