KIM AND KANYE: Offered Millions for Baby Pics
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West say their new baby's safety is their top priority and that's why they've rejected several multi-million dollar offers from tabloids who want the first photo of the little girl.
Sources say the parents have received offers as high as $5 million for the first photos of the baby who was born Monday via surrogate. Kim and Kanye have made it clear that they are not interested, saying that selling pictures of their baby would be immoral. They'll release pictures of the child on their own terms, as they've done with their other two kids. Both North and Saint were unveiled when they were two-months-old. (TMZ)
SELENA GOMEZ: Anonymously Donated Movie Money
Selena Gomez responded to pressure to donate the money she made in an upcoming Woody Allen movie.
Selena’s team revealed she wrote a check over a week ago to the Times Up legal defense fund. Her anonymous gift “far exceeded her salary for the film.”
Three actors already gave their salary to Times Up out of guilt for working with Woody Allen. His daughter, Dylan Farrow, has repeatedly accused him of sexually molesting her when she was just seven years old.
Part of the Times Up movement is closing the gender pay gap. It would follow that these actor should publicly comment on the amount of money they made working with Woody -- and donate it to Times Up. (People)
MATT DAMON: "I Should Get in the Back Seat and Close My Mouth"
Matt Damon is ready to shut his mouth when it comes to the Me Too movement.
The actor came under fire last month after he talked about sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Now on the Today show Matt says, "I really wished I listened a lot more before I weighed in on this... Ultimately, what it is for me is that I don't want to further anybody's pain with anything that I do or say. So for that, I am really sorry."
He added, "A lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing and want to be a part of that change and want to go along for the ride, but I should get in the back seat and close my mouth for a while."
Matt put his foot in his mouth in December when he said "there's a spectrum of behavior... [and] there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?"
Alyssa Milano and his ex-girlfriend Minnie Driver slammed Damon for those comments.
