Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez are hitched!

“They got married,” Grande’s rep confirmed to multiple outlets. “It was tiny and intimate — less than 20 people. The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.”

The couple tied the knot at Grande’s home in Montecito, California, TMZ first reported.

“Both Ari and Dalton love Montecito. They spend a lot of time there,” a source told People. “It seems only natural that they would get married at Ari’s beautiful and historic house.”

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer talks convincing Tom Cruise to play Maverick in Top Gun as hit movie turns 35

Moviegoers had never seen anything quite like Top Gun when it jetted across screens in the summer of 1986.

The propulsive story of a hotshot group of pilots had dazzling aerial sequences that gave audiences a cockpit view of the action, as well as a star on the rise in Tom Cruise, fresh off his role in Risky Business.

Top Gun would go on to make a then-massive US$356.8 million (approx. $460 million), becoming the highest-grossing film of the year and propelling Cruise onto the A-list, where he has remained for decades. He reprises his role in this year’s long-awaited follow-up, Top Gun: Maverick.

To mark the film’s 35th anniversary this week, Paramount is re-releasing Top Gun in cinemas in the US. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer spoke with Variety about the hurdles of bringing Top Gun to the big screen and why Cruise was the only actor he considered to play Maverick.

Top Gun is still popular 35 years after it came out. Why does it endure?

First of all, you have Tom Cruise whose career keeps getting bigger. That’s the magic of movies when you get a young actor like that in one of the first films of his career. Then you have the visual brilliance of Tony Scott. He was iconic filmmaker and his movies just hold up.

There’s a lot of stuff online about all the actors who were considered for Maverick — Matthew Modine, Nicolas Cage, Sean Penn, Matthew Broderick and Tom Hanks. Is that true? Did you think about casting them?

It was always Tom. Once we finished the screenplay, he was the only actor we talked to.

Was it hard to convince him?

It wasn’t easy. We wanted Tom after we saw Risky Business and he kind of hemmed and hawed. So we arranged for him to fly with the Blue Angels at the Naval Air Facility in El Centro, California.

He drove up there on his motorcycle and he had just finished a movie with Ridley Scott, Legend, and his hair was long and in a ponytail. And they took one look at him and thought, we’re going to give this hippie a ride.

They took him up on an F-14 and flipped him and did all kinds of stunts to turn him around and make sure he never got back in a cockpit. But it was just the opposite. He landed and he walked over to a phone booth and called me up and said, “Jerry. I’m making the movie. I love it.”

He became an amazing aviator himself. He can fly just about any plane they can make.

Was it difficult to get the Navy’s participation?

We wanted to make it real. We had to put the actors in real planes with real aviators. We needed them to hang with them and see what it was like. Initially, the admiral of the base where we shot wasn’t a fan of this. He was worried something would go wrong and that would be a black mark on his career.

So Tom and I flew to D.C. and met with the secretary of the Navy, who at the time was John Lehman. He understood what Hollywood could do for the Navy and he gave us his home number and said, “If there’s anything or anyone that gets in your way, you just give me a call.”

From that moment on the floodgates opened. But you still had to deal with the navy lawyers about the weight change if you put a camera on a wing or on the cockpit. It was a negotiation process the whole way through.

On the new movie, the sequel we just shot, it was completely different because after Top Gun came out, the enlistment in the navy went up 500 per cent. They understood that this is a great recruiting tool, so they were even more helpful and they embraced the filmmaking process with us.

Was Paramount enthusiastic about the film when you pitched it?

Not at first. There was a TV show about the Air Force that had just come out and unfortunately, it failed, so they figured that aviation is not something that people want to see.

But management changed and Ned Tanen came in as motion picture chief. We pitched him Top Gun and he loved it and said, “Go make it.” That doesn’t happen today. There are greenlight committees and all kinds of hurdles to overcome.

Tony Scott died in 2012. What was he like as a collaborator?

He was an adventurer. He was a daredevil. We went on a rafting trip in Colorado right before this. One night we camped next to a sheer rock wall and we look up and he’s climbing it with his bare hands. You looked at The Hunger, the movie he made prior to Top Gun and you saw how beautifully it was photographed.

On Top Gun, he shot all this amazing footage that isn’t even in the movie. He shot some sunsets with the planes against it. Just gorgeous stuff.

Did you have a sense before Top Gun opened that it was going to be a smash hit?

You never know. We had a preview in Houston. The audience was muted and it felt like we had a flop on our hands. When the cards came back, they rated the film with a high score and we couldn’t figure out what happened. How come the audience wasn’t laughing and showing they were enjoying this movie?

What we didn’t realise was that this was two days after the Challenger shuttle disaster, and since we were in Houston, a lot of people had friends and relatives involved in that.

Long after the movie came out, some critics, including Quentin Tarantino, argued that the film was homoerotic. Do you see that?

Not at all. These pilots, when you look at them, they’re really handsome guys. There are reasons they have nicknames like Hollywood and Maverick. It’s something that’s real and that Tony captured.

These guys are confident and cool, with amazing hand-eye coordination, otherwise they wouldn’t be top gun pilots. Tony got the flavour of them and their love of life. That’s what Tom is like. Tom is a hard-charging, smart, really dedicated actor.

Love was all around at the MTV Movie & TV Awards when Best Kiss was presented at the ceremony

Love was all around at today’s MTV Movie & TV Awards because couples both onscreen and in real life were exchanging kisses in front of the camera. 

It all began when TikTok-sensation-turned-actress Addison Rae, 20, and Cobra Kai star Tanner Buchanan, 22, locked lips on stage before presenting the award for Best Kiss.

Frankly, the couple — who have undeniable chemistry on the set of their new movie, He’s All That, a reboot of the beloved ’90s classic, She’s All That — could have won the title themselves.

https://twitter.com/MTV/status/1394107909634772995

The duo eventually came up for air to award the coveted gold-plated popcorn trophy to real-life couple Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline, who won for their steamy kisses on the Netflix series Outer Banks, where they play love interests, John B and Sarah Cameron. 

“Thank you MTV. Thank you to the fans for supporting the show,” Stokes, 28, said on stage, with 23-year-old Cline adding, “You guys are so passionate and wonderful. This is you, this is all you.”

Not to be outdone by Rae and Tanner, the Netflix stars then showed the audience why they were the rightful recipients of the award.

“I feel like there are so many people I want to thank that I’m not sure of. I’m kind of panicking right now,” Stoked continued, before Cline told him to shut up so she could kiss him. Watch the video above.

Jennifer Lopez teases ‘sexy’ new music amid reported reunion with Ben Affleck

It’s business as usual for Jennifer Lopez.

The singer and actress is putting aside her recent relationship drama surrounding her split with Alex Rodriguez and rekindled romance with Ben Affleck, instead choosing to focus on releasing new music.

Over the weekend, the 51-year-old shared a photo of herself back in the studio looking right at home inside a recording booth.

“Sexy summer fun coming 🎶💕,” she teased in the caption.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CO6V0bZJ75E/

But Lopez has never been one to slow down if there’s any turmoil in her personal life.

Earlier this year, when it was first speculated she and Rodriquez had split, she continued to film her movie, Shotgun Wedding, in the Dominican Republic.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CNITrL_Jced/

Rodriguez, 45, was then seen travelling to the Caribbean nation in March in what now seems like a make-or-break attempt to keep their four-year relationship alive.

But despite both “willing to do whatever it takes” to stay together, they sadly announced the end of their relationship weeks later.

“We have realised we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” they said in a joint statement on April 15. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects.

“We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”

But if the former Major League Baseball star is holding out for a reunion, he shouldn’t hold his breath. Late last month, Lopez sparked rumours she was back with Affleck, 48 after he was seen visiting her LA home on April 30.

The exes all but confirmed a reconciliation when Affleck whisked Lopez away on a romantic getaway to Montana, where he owns a chalet at the exclusive Yellowstone Club resort.

The reunion comes 17 years after the couple split. Then affectionately dubbed ‘Bennifer’, the pair started dating in 2002, engaged months later, and were set to walk down the aisle in September 2003. But they postponed their wedding just days away from the event, before splitting up for good in January 2004.

Eric Clapton reveals he experienced ‘severe reactions’ after AstraZeneca vaccine

Eric Clapton has detailed the “severe reactions” he experienced from the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The rocker penned a letter to anti-lockdown activist Robin Monotti Graziadei after getting the jab in February.

“I took the first jab of AZ and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days. I recovered eventually and was told it would be twelve weeks before the second one…,” Clapton wrote, per Rolling Stone.

“About six weeks later I was offered and took the second AZ shot, but with a little more knowledge of the dangers. Needless to say the reactions were disastrous, my hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks, I feared I would never play again, (I suffer with peripheral neuropathy and should never have gone near the needle.) But the propaganda said the vaccine was safe for everyone…”

In December last year, Clapton teamed up with Van Morrison on an anti-lockdown song called ‘Stand And Deliver.’ Listen above.

“Do you wanna be a free man/ Or do you wanna be a slave?/ Do you wanna wear these chains/ Until you’re lying in the grave?” Clapton could be heard singing.

He spoke of his choice to release the track to NME saying, “It is deeply upsetting to see how few gigs are going ahead because of the lockdown restrictions.

“There are many of us who support Van and his endeavours to save live music, he is an inspiration!”

Proceeds from the track go to Morrison’s Lockdown Financial Hardship Fund, intended to help musicians struggling due to lockdown measures.

Courtney Love ‘disgusted’ over upcoming Pamela Anderson series that chronicles sex tape which ‘destroyed’ Baywatch star

Courtney Love is voicing her “disgust” over the soon-to-be-released miniseries, Pammy & Tommy, that chronicles the love life of Pamela Anderson and her then-husband Tommy Lee.

Love, who is good friends with the actress, has slammed the upcoming Hulu series, which takes an in-depth look at how the couple’s sex tape — filmed during their honeymoon — was leaked online in 1995.

In a scathing Facebook post, the former Hole lead singer vividly recalled being with her former bandmates, Patty Schemel and Melissa Auf der Maur, when the 54-minute video was released and how the aftermath “destroyed” Anderson’s life. 

“I find this so f—ing outrageous,” Love began in her post. “When Pam / tommy sex tape was out / myself @pattyschemel @xmadmx were making a record. And the lone women in many recording studios in la . Where all / ALL! The staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfraude .  . Guffaws , It was disgusting . I banned anyone discussing it.”

With her post, Love shared a photo of an article showing side-by-side images of Anderson and actress Lily James, who will play the Baywatch star in her series.

Love explained she was recently approached by the unnamed publication to use an image of her from a previous Rolling Stone issue, of which she declined because she did not want her name attached to the project in any way.

“It destroyed my friend Pamelas life . Utterly,” Love wrote. “Last week I was asked to approve using a rolling stone cover of mine / shot by mark seliger in this piece of s–t . That they had approved . I said ‘f–k no.’ shocked. Gentleman don’t approve this sort of thing.”

The rocker also threw some shade at British actress James, 32, who will star opposite Sebastian Stan, 38, as he takes on the role of the Mötley Crüe drummer. 

“My heart goes out to Pammy further causing her complex trauma,” Love wrote, before adding, “And shame on lily James whoever the f–k she is . #vile.”

Last week, a friend of Anderson’s spoke out about the actress’ apparent thoughts on the series, which follows the four-days leading up to her quickie 1995 wedding to Lee in Cancun, Mexico. The couple married just 96 hours after meeting each other and shot their sex tape during their honeymoon. 

“Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never,” the friend told The Sun.

“She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knockoff. The whole thing is a joke to them.”

The eight-part series will allege the tape was stolen during this time by bitter porn star, Rand Gauthier, who then attempted to sell it for distribution before thousands of illegal copies were sold all around the world. Seth Rogen will produce and star as Gauthier in the series.

Reality TV star Monique Samuels heartbroken as she reveals her cousin was killed: ‘We live in an evil world’

Reality TV star Monique Samuels is heartbroken over the death of her cousin.

The former Real Housewives of Potomac star got emotional in an Instagram post, in which she revealed her cousin — whose name she did not reveal — was killed over the weekend. 

“This hurts so much 💔💔💔💔 Can barely sleep… unbelievable,” Samuels, 37, began in her lengthy post. “Please say a prayer for my fam 🙏🏽 My cousin was killed last night. One of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. He’s always smiling and takes care of everyone. He’s a great dad to his son and minds his business.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CO48HfTjdEs/

Samuels — who left the Bravo franchise last year after being involved in a physical altercation with co-star Candiace Dillard, 34 — then thanked her followers for their support before issuing a parting shot at whoever killed her cousin.

“We live in an evil world where life is not valued anymore and it’s sad. Thank you all for the prayers. My cousins (his sis and bro) need them so badly right now. I don’t even know what to say 😩😭🙏🏽 Whoever did this- I hope you rot in the deepest, darkest pit in hell.”

While Samuels is at odds with most of her RHOP co-stars, she did receive support from one former castmate, Karen Huger. 

“Sending prayers your way,” Huger commented on Instagram.

Samuels has had a rough two years. Her departure on RHOP last year after four seasons was dramatic, and the fight that triggered her exit was all caught on camera.  

In the footage, which aired late last year, Samuels and co-star Dillard got into a heated exchange at a wine-tasting event with their co-stars before getting into a physical altercation that has since been dubbed possibly the worst in Real Housewives history.

“It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality TV, and to be quite honest, y’all, I’m over it,” Samuels said on Instagram Live when she announced her departure. “I appreciate everything that people have done for me. Everybody that’s been Team Monique, I love y’all, I thank y’all. But when you cross certain lines, there’s no going back.”

The TV star is now focusing on her husband, former NFL pro Chris Samuels, and their three children: Christopher Jr, seven, Milani, five, and Chase, two.

Dominic and James, 32, made headlines when they were photographed looking affectionate during a two-day trip in Romel in between filming for the show. The pair play father and daughter in the new British drama.

He was photographed nuzzling James’ neck at a restaurant and wasn’t wearing his wedding ring. The actor is married to Catherine FitzGerald. The couple put on a united front after the scandal and were snapped looking affectionate outside their home in Wiltshire, UK.

They also placed a handwritten note outside the property, which read, “Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you.”

Dominic shares Martha with Polly Astor, his girlfriend before their 2001 split.

“It was terrible because it was all me. I wanted out. I hurt Polly very badly, but at the time I wasn’t ready to settle down,” he told the Daily Mail of their relationship in 2012.

Martha Stewart calls out ‘fake news’ about the number of peacocks she owns

Martha Stewart is setting the record straight about the number of peacocks she owns.

In a story about Sean Flynn’s new book Why Peacocks? An Unlikely Search for Meaning in the World’s Most Magnificent Bird about owning the exotic birds, the New York Post reported that Stewart, 79, owned 16 peacocks.

READ MORE: Martha Stewart says her probation officer wouldn’t let her host Saturday Night Live

As a matter of fact, the entrepreneur actually owns 21 peacocks — and so she corrected the report.

“The nypost again ‘fake news’,” she tweeted. “They have a story on peacocks today and say I have sixteen on my farm I actually have 21 of these glorious birds whose house is impeccable. They do not smell. They are so clean! Their voices are loud but such fun to hear. They are so friendly.”

https://twitter.com/MarthaStewart/status/1393925677372559362https://twitter.com/MarthaStewart/status/1393927567607017474

“Sean Flynn’s new book Why Peacocks is reviewed in the @nypost today,” she added. “He sounds like a very nice bird lover and he understands the lore and beauty of this beautiful breed of bird. Congratulations mr Flynn!!!”

The New York Post has since amended its report to include a correct count of Stewart’s peacocks, which she has been quite vocal about in recent years.

“Editors note: This story originally reported that Martha Stewart has 16 peacocks,” the clarification reads at the end of the article. “Stewart clarified via Twitter that she actually has 21 “glorious” and impeccably clean peacocks.”

In a blog post from March, Stewart describes in detail the variety of birds living on her property and their mating habits.

“I visit these beautiful birds every day. I love calling out to them and waiting for their energetic responses,” she wrote in another blog post. “My peacocks are doing exceptionally well and remain active, curious, and very, very vocal.”

Back in 2019, the Martha Bakes star told Town & Country about the hundreds of pets and animals she owns on her farm, explaining that she definitely has her hands full.

“They all take a tremendous amount of care because you have to keep them clean, and fed, and happy,” she told the magazine at the time. “I don’t think I’m going to get too many animals in the near future.”

Last week, Hulu released the first look at Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee and James as Anderson for Pam & Tommy. The series takes on the true story behind the release of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape — the first-ever viral video in history. Along with Stan and James, the series also stars Seth Rogen, Nick Offerman and Taylor Schilling. Stan has adopted the tattoos of the Mötley Crüe rockstar, while Rogen has shaved his beard to play Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and sold the tape.

Rogen shared his transformation via Instagram on May 8, writing, “My co-stars @iamsebastianstan and @lilyjamesofficial are a lot cooler than I am.”

Meanwhile, Stan shared a photo on Instagram of himself dressed as Tommy Lee, with a quote from the drummer: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”

Robert De Niro gives update after tearing his quad muscle on Martin Scorsese flick: ‘The pain was excruciating’

Robert De Niro is recovering after injuring his leg on the set of his new movie Killers of the Flower Moon.

De Niro, 77, revealed he’s carrying on with the Martin Scorsese project despite being in “excruciating pain.”

“I tore my quad somehow,” the Oscar Winner told IndieWire.

“It’s just a simple stepping over something and I just went down,” he said. “The pain was excruciating and now I have to get it fixed. But it happens, especially when you get older, you have to be prepared for unexpected things. But it’s manageable.”

The actor said the incident wouldn’t impact his performance. He’s starring as William Hale in the flick.

“What I’m doing with Scorsese in Killers of the Flower Moon, I’m pretty much a sedentary character in a way. I don’t move around a lot, thank God. So we’ll manage,” De Niro said. “I just have to get the procedure done and keep it straight in a certain position and let it heal.”

Last week, it was reported De Niro had sought medical attention, but that the accident wouldn’t delay production.

“While at his on-location home in Oklahoma for the filming of Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon, Robert De Niro injured his quadriceps muscle which will be treated medically in New York,” the statement read. “This will not affect production as he was not scheduled to film again for another three weeks.”

The movie also stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jesse Plemons, and Lily Gladstone, and is scheduled to debut later this year, with a budget of around US$200 million (approx. $259 million).
