Matthew McConaughey appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and during a game of Plead the Fifth, Andy said to Matthew, “There was a rumor that you once went out with Janet Jackson. Can you confirm or deny, and how would you describe your relationship with her?”
Before Andy could even get the last word out, Matthew started belly laughing. It lasted for a good 10 seconds! “You got the answer from that, didn’t you?” he finally said.
“Did I?” Andy asked before Matthew confirmed, “We went and had dinner one night. That was sorta it.”
Shia LaBeouf debuted what is more or less his life story in his screenwriting debut, Honey Boy.
The film, which Shia wrote and starred in, follows Shia‘s life at the height of his Disney fame and his strained relationship with his alcoholic father.
“It’s strange to fetishize your pain and make a product out of it. And you feel guilty about that. It felt very selfish. This whole thing felt very selfish. I never went into this thinking, ‘Oh let me fucking help people.’ That wasn’t my goal. I was falling apart,” Shia said. — Variety

Shortly after Ali’s death, her family issued a statement on social media in her honor. “Fatima was at home with us, surrounded by her loved ones and beloved cat Mr Meow, when she left us in the early hours of the morning,” it began. “When someone as bright, young and vivacious as Fati passes, the only metaphor that seems to fit is that of a star — a beacon in the darkness. For all the comfort and beauty they offer us, stars, too, are impermanent and this morning, a great one was snuffed out.”
The statement continued, “Though she’s no longer here, her spirit will continue to steer us. We hope that you, too, will listen to her lessons: Live your life as she did — to the fullest. Pursue your passion; spread love and joy; be kind and forgiving and be generous. Fati will always be a part of us and if you look deep enough, you may find your own inner Fati.”

Fatima was at home with us, surrounded by her loved ones and beloved cat Mr. Meow, when she left us in the early hours of the morning. When someone as bright and young and vivacious as our Fati passes, the only metaphor that seems to fit is that of a star—a beacon in the darkness, a light that guides us, on which to make wishes, from which to weave dreams. For all the comfort and beauty they offer us, stars, too, are impermanent. This morning a great one was snuffed out. Though she’s no longer here with us, her spirit will continue to steer us. We hope that you, too, will listen to her lessons: Live your life as she did—to the fullest. Pursue your passion; spread love and joy; be kind and forgiving; be generous; enjoy every morsel—from humble street food to decadent fine dining; cook for the people you love. Travel the world and seek out adventure. Help others and don’t be afraid to take the road less taken. Fatima will always be a part of us, and in fact if you look deep enough, you may find your own inner Fati. If you’re lucky enough to find her there, trust her, listen to her, because she will change your life for the better. We’ve learned a great deal over the course of her illness, not only pragmatic lessons we wish we hadn’t needed to learn about her disease and our health system, but about the immense love of which people are capable; about the power of being true to yourself; about how we can be better if we model ourselves after someone like her. We want to thank everyone from the bottom of our now broken hearts. We’re eternally grateful for the unending support, love, and generosity shown by people along the way—from random strangers we passed on the street who would tell her how much they admire and respect her; to all her doctors and nurses who did their best; the chefs and hospitality friends who are now part of our extended family; and the big wigs that reached out to see how they can make her dreams a reality. This has been a truly humbling experience for us all and even in her last chapter as she began to leave us, Fatima showed us how we should live.

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi said “Goodbye lil’ sis,” in a Twitter video tribute set to Carole King‘s “So Far Away” late Friday, after announcing that “due to personal reasons” she was canceling a planned Facebook Live session.
Goodbye lil’ sis. One of our brightest stars has fallen from the sky…. I have no words, but here are some of hers: “I dream of being better. I dream of being myself again, but I know I’ll never quite be the same, and that’s okay. I look forward to meeting that woman one day.” pic.twitter.com/JThpUIbtk7

While chatting with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Anne Hathaway confirmed The Princess Diaries 3 (unofficial title) is indeed happening.
“There is a script for the third movie. There is a script.” In the least shady way possible, bless her heart. She added that your favorite character, Queen Clarisse Renaldi (Dame Julie Andrews), is also so here for this movie. Julie previously said, “I would very willingly and happily do it.”
And Anne echoed that, saying, “I want to do it. Julie [Andrews] wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen.” — New York Post
