1. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are being sued by their former nanny

See you in court, darling. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are being sued by their former nanny for wrongful termination — yes, the same one who reportedly spilled the tea (and salad dressing) about them last year. Ericka Genaro, who worked for the former couple from 2018 to 2021, alleges in a lawsuit that the "pressure" that came with "filling in Wilde's absence for the children" after the Don't Worry Darling director moved out of the house "became debilitating." She also says she suffered from "​​close to unbearable" stress and anxiety due to Wilde and Sudeikis' split, and the three apparently ended up in group therapy together. Ultimately, Genaro claims she was fired by Sudeikis after asking for a three-day "stress leave," as recommended by medical professionals, and she alleges this was against employment laws. The former nanny previously revealed details of Wilde and Sudeikis' split to the Daily Mail, after which they blasted her "false and scurrilous accusations."

2. Eric André and Emily Ratajkowski drop nude photos on Valentine’s Day

He's putting the hard in "hard launch." Eric André celebrated Valentine's Day by seemingly going Instagram official with Emily Ratajkowski — via nude photos of them together. The Eric Andre Show star shared two pictures that showed him lounging on the couch completely naked, with only a heart emoji covering his crotch area, while holding a glass of wine. Behind him is a mirror, where we can see that Ratajkowski, who's taking the photos, is also almost totally nude and just wearing a bra. André and Ratajkowski were first spotted on a date in January, and they've since been seen together numerous times, including when they attended a Knicks game on Monday. She previously dated Pete Davidson after splitting from her husband last year, so she's sure doing a good job of making every comedian in America perk up and say, "So you're telling me there's a chance."

3. Chris Evans shares new photos with Alba Baptista, which fans will surely take well

He can do this all Valentine's Day. Chris Evans celebrated the holiday on Tuesday by dumping a whole bunch of cute photos of himself with his girlfriend, actress Alba Baptista, on Instagram, including several where they're kissing. There was also a video where Evans films her playing Super Mario Bros. 3, the most romantic of activities imaginable. Evans previously confirmed the relationship in January, sharing a video compilation of the two repeatedly scaring each other around the house. That month, Us Weekly reported that Evans and Baptista "have gotten serious." But a certain portion of Evans' fanbase hasn't been too happy about this, partially because she's 25 and he's 41, but mostly because he's not dating them. "Chris evans is going to marry Alba baptista" and "[I] am so sick to my stomach," one tweet said, and as we speak, a daring group of his fans is searching for six Infinity Stones that they can use to prevent this relationship from ever happening.

4. Paul Mescal is tempted to tell people speculating about his personal life to 'shut the f--k up'

Can't you all just be normal people about this? In a new Vanity Fair interview, Paul Mescal discussed wanting to keep his private life private amid widespread speculation about what's going on between him and Phoebe Bridgers. Asked about the "prodding of your personal life," the Oscar-nominated actor said this makes him "really mad and upset." Mescal is rumored to have ended his engagement to Bridgers after two years together, and there's also been speculation that she is now with comedian Bo Burnham. When Vanity Fair asked about those "speculating about the status of your relationship" and if he's tempted to set the record straight, Mescal said the temptation does exist for him to say, "Shut the f--k up. This is my life. This is what's going on. Or this is what's not going on." But "giving strangers an answer about my life doesn't actually help me," he added — so, sure enough, he didn't.

5. Steven Spielberg tells Tom Cruise, 'You saved Hollywood's a--'

Did Steven Spielberg just help give Top Gun: Maverick the speed it needs to win Best Picture? At a luncheon for this year's Oscar nominees, the legendary director was spotted chatting with Tom Cruise, who he has worked with on Minority Report and War of the Worlds, and crediting him with saving movies. "You know, you saved Hollywood's a--," Spielberg said. "And you might have saved theatrical distribution. Seriously. Maverick might have saved the entire theatrical industry." Cruise's Top Gun sequel was a total phenomenon last year, grossing over $1.4 billion at a time when Hollywood really needed more big hits that convinced an older demographic of moviegoers to return to the movies. It's now nominated for Best Picture, and some pundits have argued it could actually take the top prize thanks to this (now Spielberg-backed) narrative that it saved the industry, in what would be a big win for dads everywhere.
