Weinstein's Estranged Wife Speaks Out

Harvey Weinstein's estranged wife spoke with Vogue about the whole situation with her husband. She said she was never suspicious of Harvey because she was never the kind of wife to obsess about where someone is. She admits she was very naive, and deals with moments of rage and confusion and disbelief, and lots of moments where she just cries for her children. She said it's hard because they of course love their father, and he is a good father to them. Harvey's estrange wife went on to say that she was initially attracted to his charisma and how charitable of a person he is. 


Chris Pratt Receiving Generation Award

Chris Pratt is set to receive the generation award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards this year. He's of course worked on Parks & Rec, Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers (though if you ask me, my favorite role was that of Bright Abbott in Everwood, but OK). Anyway, coincidentally, Chris will be receiving the award right before Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom comes out. Look at that.

Plus, he is opening up about being in One Direction and how he sort of had a play a role, and he got really tired of it. He said "Fame made me a little bit nuts and distracted me a lot from the person I was. And it pissed me off in the end, because it was like, 'you could have been this guy, but you chose to do this.'" He admitted that he put up a front that wasn't him, and as soon as 1D came out with their hiatus, he was thankful that he won't have to play that person again for a long time.
