Kevin Costner's wife of 18 years files for divorce
Kevin Costner is allegedly going through a divorce with Yellowstone, but he's now adding an actual divorce into the mix. The actor's wife, Christine Baumgartner, has filed for divorce after 18 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. "It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action," his rep said. Costner and Baumgartner tied the knot in September 2004, and they share three children between the ages of 12 and 15. She's reportedly asking for joint custody. This comes amid rumors that Yellowstone, one of television's most popular shows, might soon end due to a scheduling dispute with Costner. On Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight reported he is "not returning" to the show. It's tough news all around for your dad.
'Dune: Part Two' trailer reveals bald Austin Butler
We know what we'll be Dune on Nov. 3. Warner Bros. has dropped the first trailer for Dune: Part Two, which adapts the second half of the Frank Herbert novel in a follow-up to 2021's Dune. In addition to showing Timothée Chalamet riding a sandworm, the footage provides our first look at some new additions to the cast, including Florence Pugh and Léa Seydoux. It also reveals Austin Butler's villain character, Feyd-Rautha, who's completely bald and giving handsome Squidward. He's playing the nephew of Stellan Skarsgård's Baron Harkonnen, and the trailer shifts to black-and-white when we see him. Dave Bautista previously promised that Butler doesn't sound like Elvis in the film, teasing, "His voice is different, his look is different. Everything about his demeanor is terrifying." But if Butler has as much trouble shaking this character as he did Elvis, Denis Villeneuve may have created a monster.

Jon Bon Jovi doesn't think his son is too young to marry Millie Bobby Brown
They'll make it, he swears. Jon Bon Jovi has weighed in on his son, 20-year-old Jake Bongiovi, getting engaged to Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, noting he's not worried that the two are tying the knot at such a young age. Brown, 19, confirmed her engagement to the singer's son in April after about two years of dating. "I don't know if age matters," Bon Jovi argued on Andy Cohen's radio show. "If you find the right partner and you grow together, I think that would be my advice, really. Growing together is wise." He continued that "all of my kids have found the people that they think they can grow together with, and we like them all," adding that Brown is "wonderful" and her "whole family" is "great." Some fans expressed concern seeing Brown with a ring on her finger at 19. But as her soon-to-be father-in-law might say, it's her life.
Ben Affleck is 'technically excellent' in bed, according to Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow has given two of her exes a very public performance review. On Call Her Daddy, the actress happily agreed to compare and contrast her famous ex-boyfriends Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck. Pitt, she said, had better style and was more romantic, while Affleck was more likely to make her laugh, but she was also more likely to get into an argument with him. When asked who was better in bed, Paltrow said this is "really hard," innuendo seemingly not intended. With Pitt, she had the kind of "major chemistry" you have with the "love of your life." But Affleck "was technically excellent," Paltrow said, before adding, "I can't believe my daughter is listening to this!" She also argued Pitt is a better actor than Affleck, and in a game of "f--k, marry, kill," she chose to kill Affleck. When host Alex Cooper introduced the game as "Brad or Ben," Paltrow also just immediately responded, "Brad." Dunkin' nation won't stand for this slight!
