Here's the Scoop...

Here's a story from the "I'm Not So Sure" File...

Matthew Perry denied reports Thursday that his Friends co-stars slept together.

The 47-year-old actor, who played Chandler Bing on the NBC sitcom, said in an interview with Watch What Happens Live that there was "no sex" between his cast mates.

"I think there was no sex between any of them, or else I was really missing something," he told host Andy Cohen. "I [personally] did not."

Rumors swirled in February 2016 after the Friends stars, minus Perry, reunited to honor director James Burrows. David Schwimmer appeared to confirm there were on-set flings after Lisa Kudrow denied there was a "no sex" rule in their contracts.

"Well, that was broken!" the actor said of the alleged clause.

Friends had a 10-season run from 1994 to 2004. Perry reunited with Schwimmer, Kudrow, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Matt LeBlanc at an informal gathering earlier this year.

"We have convened, privately, for dinner, and it was great," Kudrow told Today in February after denying there will be a formal reunion or revival. "It was really fun. We had such a good time. It was hilarious. We were laughing nonstop."

Perry has appeared on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, The Good Wife and The Odd Couple since Friends came to a close. He last starred in the Reelz miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot with Katie Holmes.

Come on, Matt LeBlanc never said, "How you doing?", to anyone of his co-stars. If he said that to me I would be his.

Be Well,
Steve

New synopses released for 'Avengers: Infinity War,' 'Black Panther'
"All of reality" is threatened in the new synopsis for Marvel's upcoming superhero ensemble epic, Avengers: Infinity War.

The synopsis, released in the latest issue of License! Global Magazine, details the arrival of Thanos to earth after the big-bad portrayed by Josh Brolin, has been hinted at across a number of Marvel cinematic films.

"As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos" it reads. "A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment -- the fate of the Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain."

Avengers: Infinity War, which is due in theaters May 4, 2018, will see the Marvel cinematic universe "unite," according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The large cast of heroes set to appear in the film will span characters seen in Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy among others.

Also released is the new synopsis for Marvel's Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman in the title role after appearing as the character in Captain America: Civil War.

"After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa (Boseman) returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader," the synopsis reads. "However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from fractions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war."

Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, also stars Sterling K. Brown, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong'o, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke and Florence Kasumba. It is set to arrive in theaters Feb. 16, 2018.


Report: Kelly Rohrbach dating Walmart heir Steuart Walton
Model and actress Kelly Rohrbach is reportedly dating Walmart heir Steuart Walton.

The 27-year-old Baywatch star has been seeing the 36-year-old businessman for "four or five months," according to E! News.

Rohrbach and Walton were first linked in November after they were spotted during a hike in Los Angeles. Sources said Walton has enjoyed giving the actress "flying lessons on his personal plane."

TMZ reported in April that Rohrbach was "flirty" with NFL star Aaron Rodgers following the Green Bay Packers quarterback's split from actress Olivia Munn. Rohrbach and Rodgers appeared to be holding hands during a golf date April 27.

"[They're in] the beginning stages of an early romance," an insider told TerezOwens.com.

Rohrbach previously dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio in 2015. She is known for her modeling work with Sports Illustrated, and will play C.J. Parker -- a role originated by Pamela Anderson -- in Baywatch.

"It's such an iconic role," the actress told Harper's Bazaar in 2016. "It's a great crew, fun cast and something I've been really excited to be a part of. I know it's going to be a really fun movie."

"It was mine and my sisters' show," she recalled. "We were all pretty young. I was like 10 years old, and we'd wait for our parents to go out on Saturday nights because they thought it was too risque. As soon as they were gone, we'd be in front of the TV."

Netflix orders 10 episodes of 'Dark Crystal' series
Netflix says it plans to air 10 episodes of The Jim Henson Company's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series.

To be shot in the United Kingdom, the program is a prequel to the 1982 fantasy movie The Dark Crystal. It will feature characters created by Jim Henson's Creature Shop and Brian Froud, the original film's conceptual designer.

Louis Leterrier will executive produce and direct the series. No casting has been announced yet.

"The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will combine the art of puppetry perfected by The Jim Henson Company, with Louis' vision, powerful storytelling and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said in a statement Thursday. "I can't wait for families around the world to see how we bring these unique characters to life."

"Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of The Dark Crystal and has an incredible creative vision for the series. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life," added Lisa Henson, chief executive officer of The Jim Henson Company. "Netflix has a deep respect for my father's original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in The Dark Crystal story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world."

Jim Henson was the creator of The Muppets, which appeared in The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and numerous other movies and TV shows. He also worked on Fraggle Rock and Labyrith before he died in 1990 at the age of 53.


Julia Roberts says she gave George Clooney parenting advice
Julia Roberts says she gave close friend George Clooney parenting advice.

The 49-year-old actress said on Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she's confident her Money Monster co-star will "get through" welcoming twins with wife Amal Clooney.

"Yes," she confirmed after host Ellen DeGeneres asked if she's shared tips with Clooney. "It's going to be so fun. They are a great couple and they don't need advice from me or anybody else."

Roberts, who shares 9-year-old Henry and 12-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus with husband Danny Moder, did confess Clooney might initially be overwhelmed.

"Nobody's there with you at 3 o'clock in the morning when you're just going, 'What are we doing? Where did they come from and when are they going?'" the star recalled of her own experience.

"You get through it and you figure it out, everybody does. It's trial and error and a whole lot of tears, and it's amazing," she said.

News broke in April that Amal is pregnant and expecting twins in June. Roberts, who has also co-starred with Clooney in Ocean's Eleven and other films, previously described Amal's relationship with the actor as "beautiful."

"Our lives have expanded in a beautiful way," she told ET Canada in May 2016. "Only when we're at their house, I see [Amal's] influence. In a beautiful way that all wives have, a kind of beautiful, loving influence."

Roberts will next star in an adaptation of the R.J. Palacio novel Wonder.
