Millie Bobby Brown appears to get engaged to Jon Bon Jovi's son
Millie Bobby Brown just turned fans' world upside down with some major personal news. The 19-year-old Stranger Things star revealed Tuesday she's engaged to her 20-year-old boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi. That was the implication, at least, when she shared a photo with him where she's showing off a ring on her finger, and she quoted Taylor Swift's song "Lover" in the caption, writing, "I've loved you three summers now, honey, I want 'em all." Bongiovi also shared photos with Brown and captioned them "forever." The two have been dating since 2021, and they went Instagram official that November. They made their red carpet debut at the BAFTAs in March 2022, and according to Brown's Wired autocomplete interview, they met on Instagram. "We were friends for a bit," she explained, "and then, what can I say?" Bongiovi also happens to be the son of Jon Bon Jovi, and based on how Brown has described him, it sounds like he gives love a good name.
Nick Cannon wants to have his 13th child with Taylor Swift
Get a job! Stay away from her! Nick Cannon has proclaimed on The Howard Stern Show that he's very interested in having his 13th child with the newly-single Taylor Swift. To be fair, this was Howard Stern's idea, as the radio host asked Cannon if he'd have yet another baby with the singer. "Absolutely," he said. "I'm in. Let's go! That's the one!" But then Cannon really ran with this premise, calling Swift an "amazing songwriter" who reminds him of himself. "Me and Taylor's numbers are very similar when we're talking about being in these streets," he said, suggesting they'd relate to each other because they've both "dated a lot of people in the public eye." Cannon added that his "spidey senses" were "tingling" when Swift recently became single, and it would be "amazing" if they had a child. Based on these comments, we're eagerly awaiting Swift's follow-up to "You Need to Calm Down," "You Need to Get a Vasectomy."
Sarah Paulson used to give Pedro Pascal 'money to feed himself'
Meet Baby Yoda's aunt, Sarah Paulson. In an Esquire profile of Pedro Pascal, the actress discussed her long friendship with the Last of Us star, explaining she used to help him financially when he was struggling as an actor circa 2000. "There were times when I would give him my per diem from a job I was working on so that he could have money to feed himself," Paulson said. Around this time, Pascal noted he feared he would never make it. But The Last of Us and The Mandalorian have helped him become a major star in his 40s — not to mention spawned a somewhat disturbing number of memes about him being the internet's "daddy." Paulson, for one, doesn't relate. "Knowing Pedro as intimately as I do, I would not want him to be my daddy, personally," she told Esquire. "I want him to be my pal that I can hang out with until all hours of the night, but daddy?"
Paul Rudd made a fake Cameo for Jeremy Renner after snow plow accident
Jeremy Renner's post-accident return to late-night featured a hilarious Paul Rudd cameo. The Hawkeye star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to discuss that horrifying snow plow accident he survived earlier this year, and he noted that Rudd came by the hospital "a couple of times" to visit him. But on top of that, Rudd decided to lift Renner's spirits by jokingly creating a fake Cameo video for him, pretending like his Avengers co-star paid for it and that they don't know each other. "Hey Jerry," Rudd says in the video, which was played on the show. "I hear you're a little banged up. Got in a fight with a slow blower, apparently?" The Ant-Man star goes on to joke that "maybe I'll get to meet you one day," adding, "Next time, maybe just let the snow melt. Okay, feel better, Jerry!" You know Rudd is a true friend because he resisted the urge to end the whole thing with that Mac and Me clip.
Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, and Iman Vellani team up in 'The Marvels' trailer
Deal with it, manbabies: Brie Larson is back as Captain Marvel, and she's got some new friends. Marvel has dropped the first trailer for The Marvels, which is both a sequel to Captain Marvel and a crossover with the Disney+ shows WandaVision and Ms. Marvel. The plot involves Carol Danvers (Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) realizing their powers are connected in a way that leads them to swap places with each other at extremely inconvenient moments. So the trailer begins in space, where Monica is in an astronaut suit, only for a horrified Kamala to end up floating out there instead. The footage also provides our first look at Zawe Ashton's villain character, and it teases the return of Goose, who thoroughly grosses Kamala out by using her tentacles. The film hits theaters in November, at which point we'll find out if the cure for superhero fatigue is "Freaky Friday, but make it Marvel."
