Pete Davidson reportedly crashed his car into the side of a house
Pete Davidson's Saturday night drive took a scary turn. The Saturday Night Live alum was driving "at a high rate of speed" in Beverly Hills on Saturday around 11 p.m. when he "lost control of the vehicle" and crashed into a nearby home, TMZ reports. His girlfriend and former Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star, Chase Sui Wonders, was reportedly in the car, and photos showed that the vehicle caused some damage to the side of the house. "His car collided with a fire hydrant causing property damage," the Beverly Hills Police Department confirmed to E! News. No arrests were made. According to TMZ, the "preliminary view" is that drugs and alcohol weren't involved, but an investigation is underway. Nobody was injured, though, and it may not be long before Davidson starts dating whoever lives in that house.
Hugh Grant admits he had a tantrum on 'Dungeons & Dragons' set
Hugh Grant regrets going full "oh goooood for you!" The actor admitted to Total Film that he "lost my temper with a woman in my eyeline on day one" of filming his new movie, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. "I assumed she was some executive from the studio who should have known better," he said. "Then it turns out that she's an extremely nice local woman who was the chaperone of the young girl. Terrible." Grant copped to the fact that he "did a Christian Bale," referring to Bale's infamous Terminator Salvation on-set meltdown, adding that this led to "a lot of groveling" on his part. But it's not a first-time offense for Grant, who previously told Vanity Fair, "About once a year, I have a really mega-tantrum." What would Paddington say?
Jamie Lee Curtis won't attend Oscar nominees dinner so she can go to bed early
Ariana DeBose was right: Jamie Lee really is all of us. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet of the Independent Spirit Awards, Everything Everywhere All at Once star Jamie Lee Curtis revealed she'll be skipping a private dinner for Oscar nominees this Thursday night — because it starts at 7:30. "Now you might say, 'Jamie, you're nominated for an Academy Award, you're going to be in the room with only nominees for the Academy Award,' and I have declined," she said. "Why? Because mommy goes to bed early. Because 7:30 is going to be 9 before we get food, and you know what? There's nothing good happening with me after 9:00. Nothing. Zero!" Are you listening, Oscar nominees? Keep your speeches short this year so we can #GetJamieLeeToBedOnTime.
Hayden Panettiere had a breast reduction last year: 'My confidence is back'
Hayden Panettiere is regaining her confidence. In a new Women's Health cover story, the Scream VI star revealed she received a breast reduction in November. "I don't think there's anything wrong with somebody who wants to tweak something if it makes them feel more confident," she said. "That's all I have to say about it. My confidence is back." The outlet cited this as an example of Panettiere "reclaiming herself after childbirth." The actress has struggled with postpartum depression and an addiction to opioids and alcohol, leading her to enroll in a 12-step program and go to trauma therapy. But she said that prior to the breast reduction, "My body still didn't feel like it belonged to me." Panettiere is now returning to acting with Scream VI, her first movie in years, and she told Good Morning America she spent that time working "on myself, my mental health, my physical health, spiritual health." Ghostface doesn't stand a chance.
Netflix is reportedly spending $130 million on Nancy Meyers' next rom-com
Netflix is finally putting its money to good use. Famed rom-com filmmaker Nancy Meyers (It's Complicated) is working on a new Netflix movie, which will apparently be shockingly expensive. The streamer has greenlighted Meyers' first film since The Intern at a budget "in the $130 million range," roughly twice what it cost to make the recent Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher rom-com Your Place or Mine, Puck reports. Believe it or not, this number is apparently less than she wanted, as Puck says Meyers' team "went back to Netflix and claimed it would be hard to make the movie for less than $150 million," though Netflix wasn't convinced. The film is expected to star Scarlett Johansson, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, and Michael Fassbender, and Puck says it will be semi-autobiographical, following "Hollywood exes who end up working together." So that's how Netflix plans to stop everyone from canceling over its new password-sharing rules: hitting the emergency red button marked "Nancy Meyers: Endgame."
