Fans are not really here for Kate Beckinsale’s latest Instagram post. Beckinsale shared a candid text exchange between herself and her 20-year-old daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, whom she shares with her ex Michael Sheen.
In it, Kate candidly asks Lily if she's "doing a lot of cocaine."
"Um..? I'm doing 0 cocaine," Lily replied, calling her mother a lunatic. "I physically couldn't be doing less cocaine."
Kate then explains that she asked Lily the question because she "had a dream" she was and got "so mad."
Kate captioned it, "Worth checking in case had suddenly become soothsayer in sleep".
In another caption, since deleted, she vented about the reception the post got in the press: "Various tabloids have seized the word 'cocaine' in order to stir s**t and get everybody going. If you replaced my first text with 'Are you dating Trevor McDonald?' based on a dream, I don't think anyone would extrapolate that she was, or that I was, or that we both were."
While several fellow moms enjoyed the post, others were less excited. "Who the f**k has dreams like that" and "You have some random thoughts... and clearly looking for a hookup."
It’s not the first time Kate has gotten herself and daughter in hot water. In 2016, she revealed on Late Night With Seth Meyers that she got Lily in trouble at school by doodling on her paper.
"I was just doodling a penis and I didn't realize ... it was her homework," she shared. "So she gets in trouble for it. The teacher said, 'Lily, that's not appropriate.' And she goes, 'It was my mother.'"Read More »

Big Little Lies star Zoe Kravitz opened up about her challenging but exciting childhood, an eating disorder and how she finally found love in a frank conversation with British Vogue.
Kravitz, who also graces the cover of the mag, is the daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz. The 30-year-old dishes on her father’s appearance at her school just as his hit "Fly Away" was topping the charts.
She jokes of her classmates, who swarmed him: "I always thought, ‘I know why I’m so excited to see him, because it’s rare for him to pick me up, but why are you all so excited?'"
Kravitz admits that growing up around rich white kids, and her tiny mother, made life tough. She says: "My mother was so beautiful and so tiny, I always felt clunky around her, and then my dad was always surrounded by supermodels… I was short, and you feel uncomfortable in your skin anyway at that age."
Kravitz says that she found love almost immediately with her fiancé Karl Glusman after a brief blip.
"I love that it wasn’t on an app and that it wasn’t on a movie set," Kravitz said. "My friend knew that I wanted to meet someone – not even to get serious, I think just to get laid, to be completely honest with you – and he brought Karl. I instantly felt something – then he turned around and started talking to the blonde girl next to him and I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ But he later told me that he was just nervous."

He later tweeted out: "I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty.' Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!"
An aide later told HuffPost that Trump had been referring to Meghan’s comments, not Meghan herself.

Will viewers want to Keep Up with the Kardashians if Kourtney leaves? We may find out.
For months now, tension between Kourtney and her sisters have been rising. Last summer, on Keeping Up, viewers saw Kim and Kourtney reach an almost-breaking point over their differing priorities in terms of family and work, and in a recent interview with Paper, Kourtney confessed that she’d love to leave the show in the dust.
She said: "I always say I want to move away someday and just be away from it all. Sail away. No one will ever see me again. I keep throwing up different places, but then I'll go there to visit and I'll be like, 'Nope, this isn't it, but glad I came.' We've just been to Finland. And I was like, 'Check, it's great for me to visit, but I'm not going to move there.' Maybe Norway. Switzerland? I've got a lot of ideas."
On Sunday, KUWTK producer Ryan Seacrest was put on the spot by an ET reporter who brought up the subject. Seacrest seemed taken aback, but then said: "Well, if the cameras go away, as long as they can come back, Kourtney. You know, they can go away for a little bit, but bring 'em back so we can do another season or two. Honestly, I don't know how they do it."
He continued: "I could not do it, no matter what they were paying them. I could not do it, so I give them a lot of credit for having those cameras in their lives all the time. And I love you Kourtney. Love her."Read More »

DAVID COPPERFIELD WILL MAGICALLY PUT COUNTRY BACK TOGETHER: The legendary magician David Copperfield is teaming up with the Smithsonian and a project that will reunite the long-lost 15th star with the Star-Spangled Banner on Flag Day. The flag was raised by soldiers on September 14, 1814 to celebrate victory over the British in the War of 1812; it inspired Francis Scott Key’s ode to its "broad stripes and bright stars," which eventually became the national anthem. It hangs in Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington D.C. On June 14, the museum and Copperfield will reunite the missing 15thstar, which was snipped off years ago and given as a gift. "It’s about things that are undeniable," he says. "Freedom is undeniable. The sum of all of our parts, of who we are, what America is made of, is undeniable. The talents, the ideas, the perspectives of people from all over the world, make our nation a more hopeful nation. Hopefully people on both sides are OK with that idea." The illusion will take place in front of 15 new American citizens; camera crews will not be present… but … video will be distributed to media an hour after the star reappers.

Tiffany Haddish had a unique way of finding out what people really thought about her auditions. The 39-year-old tells The Hollywood Reporter: "You know what I would do? I would put my phone on voice memo, put it in my bag, do my audition, walk out the room, leave my bag, come back and be like, ‘Oh I forgot my purse,’ get my purse, get in the car and listen."
"They’d be like, ‘She’s not as urban as I thought she’d be,’ " Haddish continued, quoting the things she would hear.
Haddish continued: "Or they’d be like, ‘She’s so ghetto, I just can’t. Her boobs aren’t big enough. I really think we should just go with a white girl. This role should be changed to white.’ "
Maya Rudolph, Jane Fonda, Regina Hall, Phoebe Waller Bridge, Natasha Lyonne and Alex Borstein also participated in the comedy roundtable.
"Wait, how many rooms did you leave it in?" Rudolph asked in surprise.
"A lot. A lot. It was like my M.O.," Haddish said, later adding. "I wanna hear so that I can grow. Also so I can write jokes about it, I can use it to my advantage…It helped me in the long run. I mean, sometimes it hurt my feelings. Sometimes, I was like, ‘Damn, what a b***h, I’m never going back in there again.'"AUDIO: TIFFANY HADDISH ON AUDITIONS
