Here's the Scoop...

Kate Hudson says she came to embrace Brad Pitt dating rumors. Who wouldn't? I know I'd like those rumors to be true if I were in her shoes. Pitt's a dreamboat!

The 38-year-old actress confessed being linked to Pitt was sort of "awesome" while discussing romance reports on the Watch What Happens Live after show Tuesday.

"That was the craziest rumor of all time," she told host Andy Cohen. "There's nothing true to that. As a matter of fact, I hadn't actually seen him in, like, four years."

Hudson was linked to Pitt earlier this year following the actor's split from Angelina Jolie. She said she had fun with the rumors despite the speculation being untrue.

"It was kind of an awesome rumor," the star said. "I kind of liked it. I was like, 'OK, fine. We're having twins!'"

Hudson is dating Danny Fujikawa, and made her red carpet debut with the musician at the Los Angeles premiere of her movie Snatched in May. She couldn't help but gush about her beau in an interview with E! News in September.

"[It's a] really amazing, calm relationship," the star said. "He makes me happy."

"I've known him for many years, but we never saw each other like that until a year ago -- well, last December -- where we just sort of looked at each other and went, 'Oh, wow. This is weird. I really like you,' and the rest is history," she shared.

Hudson will next star in the movie Sister with Maddie Ziegler.

Be Well,
Steve

Celebrities defend 'Stranger Things' star Finn Wolfhard's right to privacy
Celebrities are supporting Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and the teenage actor's right to privacy.

Stranger Things alum Shannon Purser and Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner were among those to speak out this week after fans criticized Wolfhard, 14, for reportedly not stopping to take photos or sign autographs.

"Okay, no. No actor is under any obligation to stop for anyone. Finn is an incredibly kind human. But he's human and he needs breaks too," Purser, 20, tweeted Saturday.

"I experience this on a significantly smaller scale, obviously, but I've had people waiting for me in hotel lobbies, at my airport gate, etc.," she wrote. "And I'm an adult. I can't imagine being inundated with all this attention at his age. It's intimidating."

"So, from one big sister to the world, don't you DARE make young actors feel guilty or indebted to you because they couldn't say hi," the star said. "They give you their art. They love their fans. Don't take advantage of that. And if you can't handle them needing space, stay away."

Wolfhard faced backlash on social media after someone tweeted a video of the actor passing fans without stopping and called him "heartless" in the caption. Turner, 21, also defended Wolfhard in a series of tweets Monday.

"Damn... seeing fully grown adults wait outside the 'Stranger Things' kids' hotels etc, and then abuse them when they don't stop for them is super weird A. What adult in their right mind waits for a CHILD outside their hotel and B is then offended when the CHILD doesn't stop?" the actress wrote.

"It doesn't matter if they are an actor... they are kids first. Give them the space they need in order to grow without feeling like they owe anyone anything for living their childhood dreams," she added.

Wolfhard plays Mike Wheeler on Stranger Things, which premiered a second season on Netflix in October. Purser portrayed Barb Holland on the series, while Turner plays Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones.


Adam Levine announces sex of baby No. 2: 'It is a girl'
Adam Levine is expecting another baby girl with wife Behati Prinsloo.

The 38-year-old Maroon 5 singer and The Voice coach said on Tuesday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Prinsloo is "almost seven months pregnant" with a daughter.

"It is a girl. [We're] having another girl," he told host Ellen DeGeneres.

Levine and Prinsloo already share 13-month-old daughter Dusty Rose. The singer gushed about Prinsloo, a 28-year-old model, whom he married in Mexico in July 2014.

"She's awesome. She's just, like, a champion of the world. She's killing it," he lauded. "You wouldn't know she's almost seven months pregnant."

The Voice coach also said he and Prinsloo will "probably" have more children in the future.

"I want a lot. I thrive in chaos. I really genuinely enjoy it. We love it," he shared. "She was an only child. She wants, like, 100 babies, but I don't know if I could do that."

Prinsloo announced her second pregnancy in an Instagram post in September. Entertainment Tonight subsequently reported the model and Levine are "over the moon" to welcome another child.

"He and Behati want lots of kids, and they want them close in age," a source said. "Adam is over the moon, as is Behati. They are in love with Dusty and can't wait to make her a big sister."

"I have to say, Kevin [Bacon] was a really big inspiration for me because he was like, 'Not only can you do it, but you'll do it well and you'll love it.'"

Harvey Weinstein banned for life from Television Academy
The Television Academy permanently expelled Harvey Weinstein after dozens of women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The academy held a vote during a meeting on Monday to ban Weinstein for life and said it supports those speaking out against harassment.

"The unfolding and widespread examples of this horrific behavior are deeply disturbing to the Academy's leadership," the academy said. "We have been in contact with leaders across the industry and share with them a deep sense of responsibility to provide clear workplace benchmarks reflecting decency and respect."

It also moved to expedite a detailed review and revision of Television Academy membership codes of conduct which began before allegations against Weinstein broke.

"We are determined to play a role in protecting all television professionals from predatory harassment, ensuring they are able to practice their craft in a safe environment," the academy said.

The Television Academy began "disciplinary proceedings" after a vote in late October.

Weinstein produced television shows including "Project Runway" and "Project Greenlight."

He was banned for life from the Producers Guild of America last week and the Directors Guild has also begun action to have him removed.

The Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences and its British counterpart BAFTA also revoked his membership.
