Here's the Scoop...

Celebrity couple George and Amal Clooney welcome twins Ella and Alexander.

The 56-year-old actor's rep confirmed in a statement to People that Amal gave birth Tuesday to daughter Ella and son Alexander.

"This morning Amal and George welcomed Ella and Alexander Clooney into their lives. Ella, Alexander and Amal are all healthy, happy and doing fine," the rep said before joking, "George is sedated and should recover in a few days."

The Talk had reported in February that George and Amal were expecting twins in June. The actor skipped the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity ceremony in Yerevan, Armenia, last week, because Amal was due.

"I really would have been [in Yerevan] but if I came there and my wife had twins while I was there, I could never come home," he jokingly explained.

Sources told E! News in May that Amal was "healthy, excited and looking forward to becoming a mother." The 39-year-old human rights lawyer married George in Venice, Italy, in 2014 after a six-month engagement.

Congrats to George and Amal Clooney!

Be Well,
Steve

Dan Aykroyd follows up on 'Ghostbuster' comments: 'It cost everyone'
Dan Aykroyd has continued to comment on Ghostbusters reboot director Paul Feig and how a sequel to the film will most likely not happen.

"Paul Feig made a good movie and had a superb cast and plenty of money to do it," Aykroyd who starred in and co-wrote the original 1984 Ghostbusters wrote on Facebook Monday after slamming the filmmaker for going over budget Sunday.

"We just wish he had been more inclusive to the originators. It cost everyone as it is unlikely Kristen, Leslie, Melissa and Kate will ever reprise their roles as Ghostbusters which is sad," he continued, mentioning the cast featured in the reboot.

Aykroyd orginally stated on British talk show Sunday Brunch that Feig was to blame for Sony not wanting to make a sequel due to budget concerns. "The director, he spent too much on it," he said. "He didn't shoot scenes we suggested to him and several scenes that were going to be needed and he said 'Nah, we don't need them.' Then we tested the movie and they needed them and he had to go back. About $30 to $40 million in reshoots. So he will not be back on the Sony lot any time soon."

In response to Aykroyd's claims, Sony stated that reshoots on the film had only cost between $3 and $4 million to complete. The Ghostbusters reboot was able to earn $229 million worldwide on a budget that cost more than $140 million.

Feig has yet to respond to Aykroyd's comments. Before the release of the Ghostbusters reboot, Aykroyd had praised the project stating "It has more laughs and more scares."

Peter Sallis from 'Wallace and Gromit,' 'Last of the Summer Wine' dies at 96
British actor Peter Sallis has died at the age of 96.

Born in Twickenham, Sallis is famous for playing Norman "Cleggy" Clegg in 295 episodes of the TV series Last of the Summer Wine and for voicing the animated character of Wallace in the beloved Wallace and Gromit cartoons from 1990 to 2011. He also was the author of the 2006 memoir Fading into the Limelight.

His representatives announced Monday Sallis had died peacefully with his family by his side the previous Friday, Digital Spy reported.

"I'm so sad, but feel so grateful and privileged to have known and worked with Peter over so many years. He was always my first and only choice for Wallace. I knew him, of course, from the very popular, long-running BBC series Last of the Summer Wine. He brought his unique gift and humor to all that he did, and encapsulated the very British art of the droll and understated," Aardman Animations filmmaker Nick Park said in a statement.

"Working with Peter was always a delight and I will miss his wry, unpredictable humor and silliness -- that started the moment he greeted you at the door, and didn't stop when the mic was switched off. He had naturally funny bones and was a great storyteller and raconteur off stage, too, and would keep us amused for hours. He could make the simplest incident sound hilarious -- just by the way he said it."

Park said he considers himself "blessed and fortunate" because Sallis graciously decided to work with him when Park was a "poor film school student back in the early 1980s."

"They don't come along very often like Peter Sallis -- he was a unique character, on and off screen, and an absolute honor to have known him," Park said.


Director Patty Jenkins: 'Wonder Woman' sequel to take place in the U.S.
Filmmaker Patty Jenkins has plans in mind for a sequel to Wonder Woman, which recently topped the North American box office with $105.5 million.

"The story will take place in the U.S., which I think is right," Jenkins said of what to expect in a sequel while speaking with Entertainment Weekly. "She's Wonder Woman. She's got to come to America. It's time."

"I'm not a big obligation person when it comes to art. You want to do a movie like this because you believe in it," she continued. "Then I had this revelation in the middle of the night: this is your dream cast, you've created a character that you love and you can say anything you want in the world right now."

"Then I realized that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie. I made Wonder Woman. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. It's a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love," Jenkins added.

Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce a sequel to Wonder Woman, however, another film in the series seems likely due to its box office success. Jenkins and the film's star Gal Gadot are also contractually committed to a second film, noted The Hollywood Reporter.
