Chris Hemsworth "Feels Gross" About his Wealth

I think this is really cool. Chris Hemsworth is so rich that he feels gross about how it might affect his kids. He said when he was younger, he saved up $600 for a surf board for a whole year and was so worried that he would break it that he barely surfed on it. Chris said "it taught me so many lessons about appreciation and working hard for something. When I think about my kids, I don't want them to miss that joy." I love how down to earth he is about this. 


Bradley Cooper Used his Own Dog for A Star is Born

This is so cute. For the movie A Star is Born, Bradley Cooper actually casted his own dog to play the dog that he and Gaga share in the film. He said since he and Gaga don't have a kid in the movie, he want to make sure that he has a real relationship with the dog… so he used his own. It was also funny, Bradley joked that his dog got a big ego and doesn't talk to him much anymore. BTW this is very weird, but Lady Gaga fans are being accused of posting fake movie reviews about the movie Venom, which is up against A Star is Born. They apparently are trying to discourage people from seeing the movie so that Gaga's movie does better this weekend. 


Winston Duke to Play Opposite Mark Wahlberg 

Mark Wahlberg's Netflix movie Wonderland just got a little more exciting. Winston Duke, the actor from Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, has just joined the cast. It's about a dude who gets out of prison and is sucked back into Boston's underbelly (wtf?) while uncovering the truth about a murder and the conspiracy behind it. That's what Mark's character does. Winston is set to play his friend. 


Kanye Wrote Kim a $1M Check for Turning Down a Deal

Kim Kardashian explained to Ashley Graham that she was offered an insane amount of money to do a brand post… but she turned it down per Kanye's request, which was cool (the brand wanted to pay her $1M for a sponsored post, but that brand usually knocks off Kanye's Yeezy brand). So to make it up to her, he wrote her a $1M check and brought her in as part owner of Yeezy. She also mentioned to Ashley that North's got a serious closet to pick from (AKA Kim's)… she already has dibs on Kim's 2018 Met Gala dress and Kim said she's allowed to wear it to prom. So cute. 


Taylor Swift Congratulates Engaged Fans 

Taylor Swift continues to be amazing to her fans. A guy proposed to his girlfriend during Taylor's performance of Love Story during the Houston stop of her tour. The girl posted video of it online and Taylor spotted it. She commented "CONGRATULATIONS!!!!" with heart, ring and lip emojis. Too cute. 


Billy Baldwin Wants to Auction Off his Bieber Wedding +1

Hailey Baldwin's uncle Billy said that he wants to auction off his +1 to the Bieber/Baldwin wedding so that he can make a ton of money for charity. We obviously don't have a clue when this wedding is taking place (they're already married -- it's just the reception now) but it could be awesome.
