Here's the Scoop...

Spider-Man: Homecoming co-stars Zendaya and Tom Holland have seen that report claiming they are dating.

"Wait wait...my favorite is when it says we go on vacations together HA! I haven't been on a vacation in years!hbu @TomHolland1996," Zendaya tweeted Thursday in response to a fan's excitement over a People magazine story stating she and Holland are a couple.

"Does the press tour count," Holland replied, prompting Zendaya to declare, "I'm done."

People magazine said the actors -- who also appeared together on a recent edition of Lip Sync Battle -- started seeing each other while they were filming the movie and are still enjoying each other's company.

"They've been super careful to keep it private and out of the public eye but they've gone on vacations with each other and try and spend as much time as possible with one another," the publication cited an unnamed source as saying.

Isn't it always the way. You show some on-screen chemistry, you go around promoting your movie, and then you're automatically a couple. Movies are not really life. Let the movie be the movie and leave these to kids alone. The press needs to concentrate on more inportant things like the Kardashians or The Real Housewives of Notgonnawatchit!

Be Well,
Steve

Who's jazz concert was interrupted by topless protestors?

Topless protesters from the feminist group Femen, interrupted a jazz concert in Germany recently that featured Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band.

Two women ran on stage at the sold-out Elbphilharmonie concert hall as Allen was 21 minutes into his performance. The activist were seen wearing flowers in their hair and messages written on their bodies from the filmmaker's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's 2014 letter that stated Allen sexually abused her as a child.

Security guards were quickly able to remove the protestors as Allen looked on. The 82-year-old, who was playing the clarinet, and his band then continued on with their performance.

"Although the incident occurred decades ago, Dylan (now 31) is still suffering the consequences. Woody Allen is not just the neurotic and charming director, actor and musician, but a father who likes to stick his finger in his daughter. We'd like to remind the world, and jazz fans, of that fact," the activists said, translated from German in a statement.

Farrow accused Allen of sexual abuse in 2014 as part of an op-ed piece in the New York Times. Allen has denied the allegations and has never been charged. In May 2016, Dylan's brother Ronan penned an essay for The Hollywood Reporter in which he cited the "danger" in leaving accusations against his father alone.

"That kind of silence isn't just wrong. It's dangerous. It sends a message to victims that it's not worth the anguish of coming forward. It sends a message about who we are as a society, what we'll overlook, who we'll ignore, who matters and who doesn't," he wrote.
