Here's the Scoop...

Here's a story from the "Oh, Get Over Yourself" File...

Emily Ratajakowski says she's often deemed "too sexy" to work with in Hollywood.

The 26-year-old model and actress said in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar Australia that she loses out on roles because of her appearance.

"There's this thing that happens to me: 'Oh, she's too sexy,'" Ratajkowski told the magazine. "It's like an anti-woman thing, that people don't want to work with me because my boobs are too big."

"What's wrong with boobs?" she responded. "They're a beautiful feminine thing that needs to be celebrated. Like, who cares? They are great big, they are great small. Why should that be an issue?"

Ratajkowski shared similar sentiments in an interview with ES Magazine published in May 2016.

"It's an interesting paradox. If you're a sexy actress it's hard to get serious roles. You get offered the same thing that they've seen you in," the actress said. "People are like sheep and they're like, 'Oh, that's what she does well.'"

"The truth of the matter is no one wants to hear me talk about this stuff. Definitely not the men who are casting films don't want to hear it, but I just can't not -- I'm angry," she confessed. "It's important to me."

Ratajkowski came to fame after appearing in Robin Thicke's risqué music video for "Blurred Lines." She has since starred in the movie We Are Your Friends, and is slated for the films I Feel Pretty and In Darkness.

I guess being "hot" is more trouble than it's worth. Trust me, I know. ;)

Be Well,
Steve

George and Amal Clooney step out with their twins in Italy
New parents George and Amal Clooney stepped out for the first time with their twins this week.

The 56-year-old actor and 39-year-old human rights lawyer were spotted carrying daughter Ella and son Alexander in bassinets Monday as they deplaned a private jet Monday in Milan, Italy, according to TMZ.

People reported George and Amal often visit Lake Como, where the couple have a home. The pair married in Venice in September 2014, and are said to be planning to renew their vows on their wedding anniversary this year.

"Amal and George are even planning a welcome party for the twins on their third wedding anniversary, when they will also be renewing their vows in front of close family and friends," a source told Closer Weekly.

George and Amal welcomed Ella and Alexander on June 6. Friend and fellow celebrity Rande Gerber said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight in June that the couple are doing well and adjusting to their new role as parents.

"He's so happy right now," the 55-year-old businessman said of George. "Just in life in general and having those kids, you know, it's an incredible feeling for him."

"I did see the babies," he added. "[My wife,] Cindy [Crawford], and I went to London and went to the house and spent some time with them," he added. "The kids are the perfect mix of George and Amal. I mean, they really are so cute!"


CBS 'tried very hard' to keep Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park on 'Hawaii Five-O'
CBS has responded to Daniel Dae Kim's Facebook post regarding his exit from Hawaii Five-O stating that it "tried very hard" to keep him and co-star Grace Park on the hit drama.

"Daniel and Grace have been important and valued members of Hawaii Five-0 for seven seasons," CBS said in a new statement Wednesday. "We did not want to lose them and tried very hard to keep them with offers for large and significant salary increases."

"While we could not reach an agreement, we part ways with tremendous respect for their talents on screen, as well as their roles as ambassadors for the show off screen, and with hopes to work with them again in the near future," the network continued.

Kim and Park who have portrayed Chin Ho Kelly and Kono Kalakaua on Hawaii Five-O, decided not to return for Season 8 after they were not offered the same deals as their co-stars Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan.

"Though I made myself available to come back, CBS and I weren't able to agree to terms on a new contract, so I made the difficult choice not to continue." Kim said recently on Facebook. "I'll end by saying that though transitions can be difficult, I encourage us all to look beyond the disappointment of this moment to the bigger picture. The path to equality is rarely easy. But I hope you can be excited for the future. I am."

The salary increases CBS offered was said to still be less then what O'Loughlin and Caan make on the series as the actors earn more through having a cut of the show's backend deals, noted The Hollywood Reporter.

Tupac Shakur prison letter to Madonna resurfaces, goes to auction
A prison letter rap icon Tupac Shakur addressed to Madonna that details why he ended their relationship has resurfaced.

"For you to be seen with a black man wouldn't in any way jeopardize your career - if anything it would make you seem that much more open and exciting," Shakur wrote in the letter that was released by TMZ that is dated January 15th, 1995 at 4:30 a.m.

"But for me, at least in my previous perception, I felt due to my 'image,' I would be letting down half of the people who made me what I thought I was. I never meant to hurt you," he continued.

The letter, which was written as he served time on sexual abuse charges while at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York, will go up for auction at the Gotta Have Rock and Rolle sale between July 19-28, said Rolling Stone, who confirmed the note's authenticity.

Highlights from the letter include Shakur apologizing to Madonna, asking for her friendship and several ominous messages.

"I offer my friendship once again, this time stronger and focused. If you are still interested I would like to further discuss this with you but some of it couldn't wait. I felt compelled to tell you...just in case anything happened to me," he wrote. "Please be careful Madonna. Everyone is not as honorable as they seem there are those whose hearts bleed with envy & evil. They would not hesitate to do you harm!"

Shakur died on Sept. 13, 1996 after being shot during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas.


Sophie Turner on dating Joe Jonas: 'I am very happy'
Sophie Turner says she's "very happy" with boyfriend Joe Jonas.

The 21-year-old British actress opened up about her relationship with the 27-year-old American singer in the August issue of Marie Claire U.K.

"I'm very happy," Turner told the magazine before discussing the downsides of dating a fellow celebrity.

"You do feel like you're living in a fishbowl," she said of public interest in her personal life. "It's frustrating [that] it's the most mundane things that make the news -- how boring!"

Turner and Jonas were first linked in October, and were spotted kissing at a Kings of Leon concert the next month. The actress discussed the upsides of dating a celebrity in the May issue of InStyle.

"[I] keep things pretty private," she told the publication.

"I found it easier to date someone who understands the industry or is in that world," the star added. "You realize that you're not going to see each other all the time. And you don't feel like a jerk when you're like, 'My publicist says I can't do this ... '"

Turner is known for playing Sansa Stark on the HBO series Game of Thrones, which will return for a seventh season July 16. Jonas came to fame with the boy band Jonas Brothers, and presently sings with DNCE.
