Kevin Spacey on Sunday evening issued a public apology to "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that the "American Beauty" Oscar winner made an unwanted sexual advance on him in 1986. Rapp was 14 years old at the time. Spacey would have been 26.
In the statement, Spacey said he chooses "now to live as a gay man."
Rapp, 46, came forward with his allegation in a BuzzFeed article published Sunday evening. The piece described an encounter with the older actor that transpired when he was a teen working on Broadway in New York.
Rape is a wound that throbs long after it heals. And for some of us the throbbing gets too loud. Post-traumatic stress syndrome is very real and chips away at the soul and sanity of so many of us who have survived sexual violence.
If there’s one (fictional) queen saying "YAS" to news of Olivia Colman joining the cast of “The Crown” for seasons 3 and 4 as Queen Elizabeth II, it’s Claire Foy.
Foy, who played the key role for the first two seasons, had known from the start that her time on the Netflix drama about the British monarch's long reign would be brief. Series creator Peter Morgan had always intended to replace key cast members in later seasons as the characters aged.
Colman, whose other credits include the U.K. drama “Broadchurch” and AMC’s “The Night Manager,” will now take the crown, the Los Angeles Times confirmed. And her predecessor approves.
Reality competition mainstay Simon Cowell is back home after a fall resulted in a brief hospital visit.
The "America's Got Talent" judge was taken from his house early Friday morning on a stretcher and was seen wearing a neck brace, the Associated Press and TMZ reported. Cowell reportedly fainted and tumbled backward down a steep staircase at his London home.
Upon returning Friday afternoon, the 58-year-old "American Idol" alum was photographed giving a thumbs-up as he walked himself into the mansion.
In her first public address since helping blow the Harvey Weinstein exposé wide open and igniting the exposure of several more prominent Hollywood figures accused of sexual misconduct and abuse, Rose McGowan addressed a crowd of "Me Toos," reclaimed her time and roared.
"My name is Rose McGowan, and I am brave — and I am you."
Giving fans another sneak preview of her forthcoming album, Taylor Swift unveiled a new video for the song "...Ready for It?" on Friday.
But maybe you won't be ready for a CGI-augmented Swift on the prowl, driven by a gritty beat that wouldn't sound out of place at a Skrillex party.
Directed by recent visual collaborator Joseph Kahn, the video is dense with allusions to our hooded heroine's labyrinthine psyche. She walks through graffiti-filled corridors, past objects and clues that might or might not mean something.
E! News senior correspondent Ken Baker, who has been an outspoken critic of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, has now been accused by two women of sexual harassment and is under investigation at the cable network, according to published reports.
A former E! News employee alleged that Baker invited her to sit on his lap after calling her into his dimly lit office in 2012, according to the Wrap. She said that he often made inappropriate comments or touched her in ways that made her uncomfortable.
In addition, a former E! News intern alleged that Baker repeatedly propositioned her for sex over the years. She also accused Baker of kissing her in 2011 without her consent and sending her a text message in 2015 in which he said he wanted to give her a Tiffany & Co. sex toy with his name engraved on it. The former intern provided a picture of the text message to the Wrap, which published it on Friday.
Seth Meyers is not exactly Donald Trump's biggest fan, but on Thursday night’s episode of “Late Night” the host shared how even members of the political right seem to prefer a world where Hillary Clinton is president.
“The Trump administration seems permanently inundated by scandal and constantly under siege, including from senior members of Trump’s own party,” said Meyers. “Which might explain why many on the right seem to want to live in an alternate reality where Trump actually isn’t president”
Meyers pointed out that despite Republicans' decrying him as “a threat to democracy and national security,” Trump kept his focus this week on touting his superior intelligence and memory and the unbelievably good things others have said about him.
