Add Meryl Streep to the list of people confused by Rose McGowan’s weekend outburst against women planning to wear black dresses as a protest on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet in January.
“I am truly sorry she sees me as an adversary, because we are both, together with all the women in our business, standing in defiance of the same implacable foe,” Streep told the Huffington Post in a lengthy statement. That foe, she said, is the status quo.
McGowan called “The Post” actress out by name on Saturday, saying in a now-deleted tweet, “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”
Rob Lowe helped firefighters and then invited them to help themselves to a meal after they worked to save his home and others’ in the path of the wind-whipped Thomas Fire, which has been burning since Dec. 4 and most recently was threatening homes in Montecito.
“Dinner for new friends at our house,” the “Code Black” actor wrote Sunday on Instagram, captioning a photo of firefighters filling their plates with cheeseburgers, spaghetti and more in what looks to be Lowe’s kitchen.
“Thank you to all the crews from all over the country who stood tall and saved my town. #respect #gratitude,” he said in a second post.
Diddy wants to buy the Carolina Panthers — and go down in the history books in the process.
“There are no majority African American NFL owners. Let’s make history,” he tweeted Sunday night after current Panthers owner Jerry Richardson made it known he’d be putting the franchise on the market.
“I will be the best NFL owner that you can imagine,” the music and fashion mogul, a.k.a. Sean Combs, explained in a video on Instagram. “I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for next year's starting quarterback.”
Stephen Colbert has ridden anti-Trump sentiment to the top of the late-night pack. And in just a few weeks, he’ll expand his empire of presidential mockery to Showtime.
On Monday, the premium cable network announced that “Our Cartoon President,” an animated parody series inspired by a popular running bit on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” will debut on Feb. 11.
Executive produced by Colbert and “Late Show” showrunner Chris Licht, “Our Cartoon President” will “follow the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members” and offer an “all-access look at a typical day in the life of the President of the United States,” according to Showtime.
In Saturday tweets that have since been removed, the “Charmed” alum wrote: “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem.
Truthfully, I'm just more experienced. I can get to places — and I'm talking in actor-speak now — but I can get to where I need to get faster now. I can understand when it's off, and I know it quicker; I know the signals and I'm better at redirecting it. But my approach is still the same. I've always liked to mix it up a bit.
I don't know who you think I am, but I audition for every part I get, almost across the board. If it's a part in a Steve McQueen movie with Michael Fassbender in it and Brad Pitt's producing it — odds are I'm not the only girl in town who wants that part, which means I'm going to have to fight like a lady haggling over a shoe at a Barneys sale. I'm going to have to be ready to put some elbows in some eyes.
