Last year Bryan Singer’s name emerged from the Hollywood Predator Advent Calendar when he was sued for allegedly assaulting a minor.

Busy Philipps has a book coming out later this month called This Will Only Hurt a Little. In a leaked excerpt she details a Freaks and Geeks on-set confrontation with James Franco in which he shoved her so forcefully she fell and had the wind knocked out of her. As Philipps herself says, it’s “well documented” that they didn’t really get along back then, and the shoving incident stemmed from a script direction in which she was supposed to “gently nudge” Franco in the chest and he was to get “upset” in retaliation. Full Story

Justin Theroux was also at the premiere of The Favourite in New York on Friday. Because he’s friends with Emma Stone. But also because it was obviously the party of the night in NY and Justin is so f-cking cool he has to be at the best party.

Dear Gossips,

As we have learned over the last few months, Les Moonves has a long history of sexual harassment. Ronan Farrow’s reporting on Les Moonves’s prolific and extensive abuse of power has resulted in additional investigation and analysis by other media outlets into how he was insulated from consequence and therefore emboldened and enabled to continue terrorising women.  Read Full Intro

A few weeks ago, before The Predator was to make its international debut at TIFF, Olivia Munn discovered that Steven Wilder Streigel, an actor she shared a scene with, was a registered sex offender. That phrase should stand on its own, but if you need more, he pleaded guilty to luring a minor over the internet, the details are predictably horrible, and LA Times writer Amy Kaufman Full Story

I don’t need to define “caucacity” for some of you. I feel like I don’t need to define it at all because what Madonna did last night on the VMA stage was such an egregious act of caucacity, it really speaks for itself in this context but if you don’t know, it’s a term coined by Desus and Mero and here’s how Urban Dictionary defines it Full Story

Back in June, when Victoria and David Beckham were forced to deny, via their publicist, that a divorce was imminent, there were rumours that they’d arranged to do a Vogue cover story and, at the time, many took that to mean that they were only staying together for the sake of the magazine feature which, of course, suggested that she was the desperate one who didn’t want to jeopardise the opportunity. Full Story

As I noted this morning in the open, they were projecting a five-day total of $20 million, on the high side, for Crazy Rich Asians. That number has now been adjusted. Full Story
