Here's the Scoop...

People magazine has declared Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson the Sexiest Man Alive for 2016.

The 44-year-old, film star and former pro wrestler, who is known for his work ethic and positive attitude, shared his reaction to the honor with the publication.

"I said, 'That's awesome.' And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is," the father of two children gushed. "And then I thought, 'Wow, we've pretty much reached the pinnacle.' I'm not quite too sure where we go from here. I've done it all, this is it."

Johnson was recently seen in the hit movies Central Intelligence and Furious 7, and his voice will soon be heard in the Disney animated picture Moana.

And in a distance 267,878th place... yours truly. So close. so close. I thought 2016 was my year.

Be Well,
Steve

Carrie Fisher details secret affair with Harrison Ford: 'It was so intense'
Carrie Fisher detailed a secret affair she had with Harrison Ford in 1976 during filming of the original Star Wars.

"It was so intense," Fisher said of the romance to People magazine ahead of the actress exploring the fling further in her upcoming memoir The Princess Diarist.

"It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend," she continued of the pairs two iconic Star Wars characters who would later fall in love in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

According to Fisher who gave Ford an advanced copy of her memoir, she got together with the actor following a birthday party for director George Lucas.

Notably, Fisher was 19 at the time while Ford was a 33-year-old married father of two. The romance had run its course after filming was completed on Star Wars.

"I looked over at Harrison. A hero's face -- a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow," Fisher writes in her book. "How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?"

Ford has yet to comment on the reveal while Fisher seemingly poked fun at the news on Twitter Tuesday writing, "I would never talk about how someone was in any furniture--chair, bed, coffee table or otherwise."

Mick Jagger on this stage of his career: 'I still want a challenge'
Mick Jagger opened up about his career and The Rolling Stones' travelling installation, Exhibitionism, and said he has no immediate plans to slow down.

Jagger and the Stones recently performed at the inaugural Desert Trip festival in Indio, Calif., over the summer which paid tribute to classic rock n' roll with performances Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Paul McCartney and the Who.

"I still want a challenge," Jagger, 73, said, "and doing things like Desert Trip is a challenge. There are great people on the bill and it's a special weekend. So that sets up a challenge for you and you just want to give it your best shot and try to please everybody and make everybody have a great time. You know, that's really one of my roles in life."

Up next for Jagger is a new Stones album, "Blue & Lonesome," which will feature covers of vintage blues tunes. The band is also involved with the art installation, Exhibitionism, a collection of Stones memorabilia which has spent the last six months at London's Saatchi Gallery and opened in New York earlier this week.

"I've got different feelings about it on different days," Jagger said. "Yes, it's all about the Stones and my life and the band, but it's still a creative piece of work. So you put yourself in the mind of the person who's going to visit this show and you go, 'Well, I think that's good, but this could be better, and let's change this,' so you're not just wallowing in nostalgia. You're being a critic of a creative enterprise."

The idea for the exhibit transformed from something Jagger called "impersonal" to a full-scale replica of an apartment Jagger shared with Stones' guitarist Keith Richards.

"I think it came out pretty much like it was, but when I first saw it, they'd overdone the filth," Jagger joked. "I was like, 'Don't have 10 ashtrays filled with cigarette butts. You have 50 beer bottles. Come on, guys. If we take it back a bit, it will still be filthy.'"

The band pulled together some of their personal items for the exhibit including costumes from their tours, Jagger's lyric book and Richards' diary from 1963.

Some of Jagger's clothes, like his famous jumpsuits, he had to take back from his daughters, Elizabeth and Georgia.

"My daughters had 'borrowed' them," Jagger said. "They thought it was funny to wear my '70s clothes. I got a couple of things back from them. I used it as a good excuse to say, 'Okay, time for you to give them back now. It has to be hung up in an exhibition."

Exhibitionism will run through March at New York's Industria studios and, from there, will travel to 10 cities over the next four years.

"Blue & Lonesome" is set to be released in December.

Which Academy Award nomination actress has been confirmed to star in a new Janis Joplin biopic?

Michelle Williams will indeed play late singer Janis Joplin in a new biopic.

The 36-year-old actress confirmed in an interview with E! News on Monday that she will portray the '60s music icon in the forthcoming movie Janis.

"As far as I know, [it's happening]," Williams said. "I figure there's one good day in the life of an actor, which is when you get the job. Before you get the job, you're just like, 'Come on! I'm begging. I'm dying for this. I gotta have it!'"

"You get the job, you're like, 'I'm so excited. I can't believe it. I can't believe I have this opportunity. I can't believe I'm gonna get to do this,' and then you start worrying the next day. So, I'm in the worrying the next day [phase]," she shared.

The Guardian had reported in October that Williams was in talks for the role. The movie is based on the book Love, Janis, written by Joplin's sister, Laura Joplin, and will be directed by Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene).

Joplin came to fame as the lead singer of Big Brother and the Holding Company and released her first solo album, I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, in 1969. She died of an overdose at age 27 the next year.

Williams is known for playing Jen Lindley on Dawson's Creek, and has since appeared in Brokeback Mountain, Blue Valentine and Shutter Island. She will next star with Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea, which opens in theaters Friday.
