Here's the Scoop...
From the 'Say What?!' File... Howard Stern has said that he supports the #MeToo movement in a new interview that was published on Wednesday.
Stern, who has been known throughout his radio career for interviewing porn stars and for taking part in sexually explicit behavior on-air, said to Rolling Stone that he has shed his old persona and is now more interested in having more in-depth conversations with his guests.
"We all change. I'm a big proponent of the MeToo era. I think it's really great. I have three daughters who are out in the workforce. I totally support that," Stern said after admitting that some of his earlier antics were debasing to women.
"It wasn't about dehumanizing someone or insulting someone. It was more about sort of being caught in the rock & roll world that we live in. But now when I look at that, it doesn't fit," he continued.
"All my outrageous antics, I think, made people more comfortable with their own sexuality," the radio personality said. "There are implications of 'Hey nowadays would you do that?' Absolutely not."
Stern has recently released his first book in over 20 years titled Howard Stern Comes Again. The book serves as a collection and celebration of some of his best interviews from throughout his career.
Stern made headlines when he said on The Tonight Show that his interview with the late Robin Williams was one of his biggest regrets. "As I went through psychotherapy and I started thinking about people, I could only think about Robin Williams and how it went so wrong," he said on the late night show.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt talk show biz in 'Once Upon a Time' trailer (FEATURING NSFW MATERIAL)
Sony released a 2 1/2-minute trailer for Quentin Tarantino's ninth film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on Tuesday.
Set in 1969, the clip shows Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a fictional fading TV and movie star trying to stay relevant in a changing industry. He is seen discussing his concerns with his stunt double Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt.
"It's official, old buddy. I'm a has-been," Rick complained.
Cliff listened patiently and tried to bolster his friend's confidence.
"You're Rick (expletive) Dalton. Don't you forget it," Cliff told him.
Cliff also crosses paths with Charles Manson (Damon Herriman,) a real-life a cult leader who inspired his followers to kill nine people, including starlet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie.)
Other A-listers who appear in the preview for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are Al Pacino, the late Luke Perry, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Margaret Qualley and Kurt Russell.
Neil Diamond's "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" plays in the background.
The movie is set for theatrical release on July 26.
Most of the cast has worked with Tarantino in the past. Pitt starred in Inglourious Basterds in 2009, DiCaprio appeared in 2012's Django Unchained and Kurt Russell acted in 2015's The Hateful Eight.
Perry died in March after suffering a stroke. He was 52.
'John Wick 4' to open in theaters in 2021
John Wick 4 is officially a go.
Entertainment Weekly confirmed Monday John Wick: Chapter 4 will open in theaters May 21, 2021.
Variety said Lionsgate announced the news in a text message to fans reading, "You have served. You will be of service. John Wick: Chapter 4 is coming - May 21, 2021."
The news follows the release of John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum, which opened in theaters Friday. The movie topped the North American box office over the weekend, earning $57 million in receipts.
The John Wick films star Keanu Reeves as the titular assassin. The first movie opened in October 2014 and was followed by John Wick: Chapter 2 in February 2017.
Reeves said in the May issue of GQ he will continue to star in John Wick films as long as there is a demand.
As far as my legs can take me," the actor said. "As far as the audience wants to go."
Chad Stahelski, who directed all three movies, shared similar sentiments in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in May.
"I enjoy making these movies because there's no limit," Stahelski said. "We create our own mythology, and we have a studio [Lionsgate] that both stays out of our way and supports us on the wacky decisions."
"If people go see the movie, and it makes money, and they came back to us, Keanu and I have ideas for days," he added. "It's a fun world. I could live here for the rest of my career. If people like it and want to watch more, I could think of way worse ways to spend your career."
"Probably when I like, put Joe Jonas on blast on your show. That was too much. Yeah, that was too much. I was 18. We laugh about it now, but that was mouthy ... just teenage stuff there."
--Taylor Swift, saying the most rebellious thing she did as a teenager was slam former flame Joe Jonas for breaking up with her over the phone, during a round of "Burning Questions" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Elle Fanning blames tight dress for 'fainting spell' in Cannes
Elle Fanning says her dress is to blame for her "fainting spell" in Cannes.
The 21-year-old actress posted Monday on Instagram about fainting during a dinner party at the Cannes Film Festival.
Fanning shared a photo of herself giving a thumbs up for the camera. She explained in the caption her vintage dress was too tight around the waist.
"Oops, had a fainting spell tonight in my 1950s Prada prom dress but it's all good!! #dresstootight #timeofthemonth," the star wrote.
Former Mad Men stars January Jones and Kiernan Shipka were among those to comment on the post.
"Where's your smelling salts when you need em??" Jones wrote.
"you're a literal icon," Shipka added.
Variety said Fanning, a Cannes jury member, fainted during the Chopard Trophee dinner Monday. Fanning collapsed and fell off her chair during the ceremony, leading to a brief pause in events.
Fanning's sister, actress Dakota Fanning, helped the star to her feet before security ushered them out. Actor Colin Firth also offered to help Fanning.
Sources told E! News Fanning "quickly recovered" before leaving the room.
"Most people in the room didn't even notice until after there was a brief pause, during which word quickly spread through the venue about what happened," an insider said.
Fanning is known for the films Maleficent, The Neon Demon and The Beguiled. She will reprise Aurora in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, which opens in theaters in October.
