Here's the Scoop...

It's time for "Oprah News"!

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey said she has no intention of running for president.

The 63-year-old television personality denied in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter's "Awards Chatter" podcast that she will oppose President Donald Trump in the 2020 election if the businessman seeks a second term.

"I will never run for public office. That's a pretty definitive thing," Winfrey said after host Scott Feinberg asked if she'd be willing to take on Trump.

"I don't know [if I would beat him]," she added. "I don't know the answer to that. But I will never have to know the answer to that, because I will never run for public office."

Winfrey supported former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. She said on The David Rubenstein Show in March that she reconsidered her chance at becoming president in the wake of Trump's win.

"I actually never thought that was [an option]. I never considered the question even a possibility," the star explained.

"I thought, 'Oh, gee, I don't have the experience. I don't know enough.' Now I'm thinking, 'Oh,'" she added with a smile.

Winfrey is instead focused on the OWN series Greenleaf and a forthcoming remake of Terms of Endearment. She last starred in an HBO adaptation of the Rebecca Skloot novel The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

I've got to admit, I'm a little bummed by this news. I was really looking forward to seeing the Secretary of State jumping on a couch and free cars being given out to supporters during a campaign rally. Don't you want to know about President Oprah's Favorite Things?

Be Well,

Jessica Chastain confirms wedding: 'I'm off the market'
Jessica Chastain has confirmed media reports saying she married longtime beau Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo last weekend.

"Did you hear? Im off the market. Gianluca & I got married! We wanted privacy & aren't selling photos but Ill post something in the future," the Interstellar actress tweeted Tuesday.

She also released a statement thanking fans for their well wishes and requesting they stop sharing wedding photos taken and published without her permission.

"Thank you for all the sweet comments about my wedding. I love you and it was a beautiful day. I am going to ask you to please stop sharing those photos," the message said. "Helicopters disregarded a nofly zone & took the pics during the ceremony. Everytime I see them Im reminded of the insensitivity of that moment. I promise you that I will share pics with you in the future, but I would prefer to share photos that celebrate love not intrusion."

The couple exchanged vows at the estate of the groom's family in Treviso, Italy. Guests reportedly included actresses Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt.


Ice Cube honored with star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Rapper, actor and filmmaker Ice Cube was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, adding another highlight to a long and varied career for the multi-faceted performer.

"Toast to all my Day 1 Riders! If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," he tweeted.

Many celebrities from the hip-hop and filmmaking community were present for the ceremony, including director John Singleton, who directed Ice Cube in his first acting role in 1991's Boyz n the Hood.

"The mark of a true man is how many people he influences in his lifetime," Singleton said. "That's how I see Cube."

At the time of his first Hollywood movie role, Ice Cube, now 47, was already a controversial hip-hop star as part of the group, N.W.A., whose 1988 hit song, "[Expletive] tha Police" made headlines and censor lists for its blunt lyrics about racist police in Los Angeles' majority black South Central area.

Ice Cube, originally known as O'Shea Jackson, has gone on to enjoy success in Hollywood with several starring roles, including the highly profitable Barbershop franchise, in which he starred and produced.

The Hollywood Walk of Fame honor comes at the same time Ice Cube is busy promoting his new hip-hop album, Death Certificate.

"You don't get here by yourself," he said during his speech to accept the honor. "Today is not really about Ice Cube. It's about all the people that helped me get here."

Elle Macpherson splits with billionaire husband
Supermodel Elle Macpherson and billionaire husband Jeffrey Soffer have split up after four years of marriage.

"Elle and Jeff are definitely over," a source told Page Six. "She has left their house at Indian Creek in Miami with her kids, and is looking for her own house in Miami. He has been linked to some other women, but insists they are just friends."

Macpherson and Soffer were married in 2013 after a stormy romance in which they briefly split up before eventually tying the knot at an intimate ceremony in Fiji.

Soffer is the son of billionaire Miami real estate magnate Donald Soffer and is estimated by Forbes to have a net worth of at least $1 billion.

Macpherson has two children from a former relationship with millionaire hedge fund manager Arpad Busson, who recently went through a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife, actress Uma Thurman.

Soffer has three children from a previous relationship.

In a 2016 interview with Stellar, Macpherson opened up about raising a blended family.

"We have a deep respect for each other's profound commitment to parenting, so we would both probably say that the children come first," she said, adding: "And that means, at times, that we are separated because of where the kids are and it takes quite a mature person to allow each other to do what we need to do in our families' lives."

Macpherson and Soffer do not have any children together.


Willie Nelson, Neil Young to headline Farm Aid
The location and line-up for Willie Nelson's annual Farm Aid event has been announced and will include some of the biggest names in folk rock.

Joining Nelson at the KeyBank Pavillion in Burgettstown, Pa. on Sept. 16 will be John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, all of whom are board members for the annual charity. Other artists to join the fray include Tim Reynolds, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson, The Avett Brothers, Jamey Johnson, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Insects vs Robots.

Farm Aid is held at different locations each year and was last held in Burgettstown, located about 25 miles from Pittsburgh, in 2002.

"Family farm agriculture is the heart of Pennsylvania," said Nelson, who founded Farm Aid in 1985. "What's happening in western Pennsylvania and the region shows us that we can count on family farmers to strengthen our communities and connect people. Whether we live in rural or urban places, food - and music - brings us all together."

The Farm Aid mission is to promote local farmers and the Good Food Movement. The event has raised more than $50 million for that cause since it began.

At Farm Aid 2016, held in Bristow, Va., Young told the crowd that "There's a revolution starting!"

He added: "It's called eating good food that your neighbors made for you...Let the earth bring us all together, back to the roots. Eat good food. You don't need the drugs anymore. It took us a long time to get this far. We have a long way to go. But with people like you, we're going to make it!"
