Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell aren't dating despite rumors
Do co-stars Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney have a bit too much chemistry? The actors are starring in an upcoming romantic comedy called Anyone But You, and there has recently been fervent online speculation that they might have been an item in real life despite both dating other people. Fans noticed they appear to have gotten close during production and have seemingly acted flirty toward each other, though to be clear, there's been no actual evidence of a romance. But fans raised their eyebrows after noticing Powell's girlfriend apparently unfollowed Sweeney on Instagram. Amid these rumors, TMZ reports Powell and Sweeney aren't dating, as she's still with her fiancé, though the outlet couldn't confirm whether Powell is still with his girlfriend. When the actors appeared at CinemaCon to promote the film together, they "looked extremely cozy" and "couldn't keep their eyes off each other," Page Six observed. We've seen this movie before, and spoiler alert: It ends with someone allegedly spitting on Chris Pine.
John Stamos got the Olsen twins fired from 'Full House'
Have mercy, John! On the Good Guys podcast, Full House star John Stamos confirmed to Josh Peck he got Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fired from the show, at least briefly. According to Stamos, the 11-month-old twins were screaming and "wanted to be anywhere else but there" during the filming of the sitcom's pilot episode. "I couldn't deal with it, and I said, 'This is not going to work, guys,'" Stamos recalled, adding that he declared, "Get rid of them. I can't work like this." So the Olsen twins were, in fact, fired and replaced with two redheaded kids. But according to Stamos, the Olsens got the role back almost immediately because these new kids "weren't attractive," so he quickly changed his mind and said, "Bring the Olsens back. These kids are terrible!" How rude.
Morgan Wallen lawsuit over canceled concert dismissed almost immediately
Morgan Wallen recently stood up fans in Mississippi, and one of them didn't take it lightly. The singer was hit with a class action lawsuit accusing him of breach of contract and negligence after he canceled a concert at the last minute, Entertainment Weekly reports. Wallen was set to perform on Sunday in Oxford, Mississippi, but he had to scrap the show after losing his voice. Though ticket refunds were offered, the lawsuit claimed concertgoers are also "entitled to refunds of the out-of-pocket expenses they incurred in connection with the canceled performance," such as "transportation, lodging, food, merchandise sales," and "transaction fees." But just one day after the lawsuit was filed, TMZ reports the plaintiff has already filed to dismiss it. The singer previously told fans it "kills" him to cancel the show, but "my voice is shot and I am unable to sing." For once, he's under fire for what didn't come out of his mouth.
Daniel Radcliffe welcomes his 1st child
Daniel Radcliffe is officially Daniel Dadcliffe. The Harry Potter star has welcomed his first child with partner Erin Darke, according to the Daily Mail, which published photos of the two on a walk with their newborn baby in New York City. Radcliffe "looked every inch the doting dad," the outlet declared. A rep for the actor confirmed the news to People, and it comes just a few weeks after it was revealed that they were expecting a child. Radcliffe and Darke have been together for over a decade after meeting on the film Kill Your Darlings. Additional details about Radcliffe's child haven't been revealed, though the casting directors at Warner Bros. are surely watching closely ahead of the inevitable second Harry Potter reboot circa the 2030s.
Hugh Grant plays an Oompa Loompa in 'Wonka,' which involves a 'chocolate cartel'
Oompa loompa doompety dee, Hugh Grant has a role in Wonka's origin story. At CinemaCon on Tuesday, Warner Bros. premiered a trailer for Wonka, which stars Timothée Chalamet as a young Willy Wonka, and it sounds pretty bizarre. First of all, the trailer confirmed Hugh Grant is in the movie playing an Oompa Loompa. The footage "concludes with Willy meeting an Oompa Loompa captured in a large jar," played by Grant, Comicbook.com reports. "This is a Willy that's full of joy and hope and desire to become the greatest chocolatier," Chalamet said, also revealing he swam in actual chocolate during filming, per Variety. The trailer also revealed the movie is about how Wonka "must face off against a chocolate cartel that wants to prevent him from practicing his craft," as The Hollywood Reporter described. Never could we have predicted that series of words in our wildest pure imaginations.
