JENNIFER ANISTON SHARES HER HARVEY WEINSTEIN STORY

Jennifer Aniston, 50, told Variety for its Power of Women issue, about her own experience with Harvey Weinstein. Aniston said that Weinstein, who has been accused of misconduct, including rape, by dozens of women, never physically attacked her, but he did behave like a bully. (Weinstein is facing criminal charges in NYC for assault and rape, and has pleaded not guilty. He is set to go to trial in January of 2020).

Aniston said that Weinstein tried to talk the fashion icon into wearing dresses made by his wife, Georgina Chapman. She said he made the request for the premiere of the 2005 film Derailed that she starred in and he produced: "I remember, right when Georgina's clothing line Marchesa was starting. That's when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He'd be like, ‘Ok, so I'd like you to wear one of these to the premiere.'"

The actress continued: "And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn't what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, ‘You have to wear the dress.' That was my only bullying. And I was like, ‘No, I will not wear the dress.'"

Aniston is co-starring with Reese Witherspoon in Apple+'s The Morning Show, which follows the story of two female news anchors will fill in for their disgraced colleague. She says she researched actual morning news shows that dealt with those very issues, including the Today Show, where host Matt Lauer was fired for alleged misconduct.

That one, she tells Variety, hit her hard.

"I was so devastated," Aniston says. "It's such a strange thing; it felt oddly like my dad did something terrible. I trusted him and had been interviewed by him. He was there for so many moments in my life. And when Friends was ending, it was Katie Couric and Matt interviewing us."

The Morning Show, she tells Variety, is modeled on many of the men—famous and not—who fell during the #MeToo movement: "All fictional, but also kind of highlighting aspects of the archetype of a charming narcissist, of a generation of men that didn't think that was bad behavior. That's just the way it works. And men are flirts and women are coy and find it flattering. And thankfully, with the sacrifices of these women who have come forward, this isn't going to happen anymore. It's wonderful that you're accountable and you have to check yourself."

PRINCE HARRY SUES ‘THE SUN,’ ‘DAILY MAIL’ FOR ALLEGED PHONE HACK

Prince Harry is declaring war on the British tabloid press. The royal has filed claims in court "regarding the illegal interception of voicemail messages," a Buckingham Palace spokesperson tells CNN.

This move was made public Friday, days after Harry attacked the bloids for publishing a private letter from his wife Meghan Markle to her estranged father Thomas Markle. The actual filings were reportedly made at the High Court in London by Harry's legal team on September 27th.

A spokesperson for The Sun's parent company, the Rupert Murdoch-owned News Group Newspapers (NGN), told CNN: "We confirm that a claim has been issued by the Duke of Sussex. We have no further comment to make at the current time."

In his original statement Harry blasted the media: "Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences -- a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son."

He went on to reference his mother Princess Diana's untimely death and his fear for Meghan's safety: "Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces. We thank you, the public, for your continued support. It is hugely appreciated. Although it may not seem like it, we really need it."

JERSEY SHORE’S RONNIE ORTIZ-MAGRO CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING

The Jersey Shore star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's relationship with girlfriend Jen Harley has been tumultuous from the get-go. The pair, who share an 18-month-old daughter, have broken up and made up multiple times, but their latest rift reportedly turned violent. The 33-year-old Ortiz-Magro was arrested near L.A. at an Airbnb that he and Harley were renting, according to reports.

Ortiz-Magro was high on cocaine, and his temper flared, according to reports. He allegedly hit her and chased her with a knife; police booked him for kidnapping, but he posted the $100,000 bail and was released.

Harley was spotted picking him up from jail with their baby.

Shortly before his arrest, Ortiz-Magro was discussing his sobriety with Us Weekly. He told the mag that CBD helped keep him off booze and drugs. He said he first tried CBD after surgery: "I'd be in pain and I'm, like, I feel good! I don't feel a nasty feeling after, I don't feel like I need more. I feel like it lasts."

He continued: "You know, and it's not like when you take pills, I feel like you're, like, I gotta take four now and then I gotta take another four. And no. It's, like, one drop, boom. With the pills, it's like, 200 milligrams, that's all you get. With CBD, you could control your own, what you want to do."

Ortiz-Magro also told People that the public's perception of his relationship with Harley is overly negative, and that their connection is real and deep. "They ask why do we stay with each other? And it's because we know what we have is real," he said. "And at the end of the day, people don't see what we have, they see what MTV wants you guys to see."

‘MEAN GIRLS’ DO GOOD

Mean Girls fans know October 3rd is the movie's unofficial holiday. In the movie, Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) asks Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) if she knows what day it is. "It's October 3," she replies.

Ever since, cast-members and fans have turned the day into a cause for celebration, being nice and binge-watching the classic.

GIVING BACK

15 years after the movie's release, Bennett and cast-mates are asking fans to donate $3 to the Thirst Project, which will help build a well in Uganda and bring safe drinking water to a village.

"So, we all know Cady was from Africa," Lohan says in an Instagram video shared Thursday. "But this year, we want to help with building a well in Uganda."

Amanda Seyfried, who plays Karen Smith, says "that well will bring fresh drinking water to nearly 500 people for the rest of their lives."

Lacey Chabert (Gretchen Wieners), Daniel Franzese (Damian), Lizzy Caplan (Janis Ian), Rajiv Surendra(Kevin Gnapoor), Jan Caruana (Emma Gerber) and Stefanie Drummond (Bethany Byrd) also showed support for the initiative.

BINGE-WATCHING

ROBERT PATTINSON HAS NO CLUE HOW HE SNAGGED ‘BATMAN’ ROLE

Robert Pattinson is set to play Bruce Wayne in the new Batman film, but he's not sure why, he tells Esquire U.K. In a new cover story, he said: "It's kind of insane. I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I've got it, at all."

Pattinson, 33, wasn't the only person who was shocked that the Twilight star snagged the role. Still, Twitter's reaction wasn't as tart as Pattinson expected. He told Variety recently the backlash was "less vitriolic" than he expected.

But director Robert Eggers was all in. "Even in the Twilight years I never said, 'Oh, he's just a pretty boy,'" Eggers told Esquire. "I always thought there was something interesting about him. I could tell that he wanted to be a great actor. And in the past years it's been very clear that he is."

As was co-star Willem Defoe, who said that Pattinson clearly as the perfect jaw for the role.

After laying low following his unexpected rocket to fame on Twilight, Pattinson said he's ready for the limelight again.

"For a long time you're very self-conscious in the street," he told the magazine. "You're hiding a lot, so on set you have an excuse to be wild. It's like being an adrenaline junkie. And also, when you don't know how to do something, why not just run headfirst into a wall? See what happens. I haven't got any other ideas."

"I've learned that the people who've made the most fun of me as a kid probably had their own s--t that they were going through. And so, they were taking it out on other people. And that breaks my heart." The show has also helped her embrace her red hair. "Finally, my hair and I have a great relationship," Petsch said. "And when fans tell me they're being bullied, I remind them that the things they're being bullied for now are the things that make them unique. When you get older, those things are going to make you stand out."

IS LORI LOUGHLIN PITCHING A TELL-ALL?

Lori Loughlin may be ready to tell the story of her role in the college admissions scandal that has snared her, husband Mossimo Giannulli, Felicity Huffman and dozens of others.

Radar reports that Loughlin, who pleaded not guilty to shelling out $500K in a bid to scam her daughters' way into University of Southern California, is eager to sell her story. (ICYMI, she and Giannulli allegedly had fixer William "Rick" Singer help get daughters Isabella, 21, and Olivia, 19, into USC as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played.)

"She's talking to agents about turning her prison experience into a cash-grabbing book and movie," one insider said. "They've assured her it will make millions."

The 55-year-old will find out fate soon enough. Next up is a court date this Wednesday. The pair are facing up to 40 years behind bars. Huffman, who pleaded guilty in exchange for a lighter sentence, was sentenced to two weeks behind bars for the relatively smaller crime of paying $15K to pump up her daughter's SAT scores.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Loughlin's "anxiety is through the roof, she is terrified, and she's been consumed with trying to put on a happy face but it's not easy under the circumstances."

The source continues: "Lori is sticking with her story that she and her husband were scammed by Rick Singer. She has claimed to friends that they always thought the money was going to a charity through the school. She says she doesn't feel for one minute they were breaking the law."

DOCTORS WARN ABOUT KIM KARDASHIAN'S WAIST TRAINERS: Kim Kardashian has debuted her new SKIMS waist trainer, and it sold out in every size in less than 24 hours. While the trainer claims to "instantly erase inches," doctors tell Page Six that they may want to think twice. "While they seem like a quick and easy fix, waist trainers don't actually burn fat or make you lose weight, and there can be a lot of harmful side effects," Dena Barsoum, MD, board-certified physiatrist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Hospital for Special Surgery, told Page Six Style. "There's a reason our bodies have the shape that they do. Waist trainers compress everything in the abdomen; not just your muscles and skin, but your intestines, stomach, liver, spleen and kidneys, and all of those need space to function." Wearers could experience side effects from indigestion and heartburn to cracked ribs and pinched nerves.

"And, actually, seeing a character like that in a later stage of life, I think, is exciting. But I think for now, she's been through enough! We've got to let her go!"

ANGELINA JOLIE CREDITS KIDS WITH RENEWED COURAGE

While many still think of Angelina Jolie as a tarantula-eating plane-flying daredevil, the mother of six admits she's had a rough few years. The 44-year-old was involved in a high-profile split from husband Brad Pitt and a public, often brutal custody spat over their six kids.

She brought her six kids to the red carpet premiere, where she stunned per usual in custom Atelier Versace dress that she paired with a scorpion accessory by Robert Procop and Cartier earrings.

Maddox wasn't there (he just enrolled in college in South Korea), but 15-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Zahara, 13-year-old Shiloh, and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne were present.

Jolie gave them props for keeping themselves and her together.

"They wrangle me," she told ET on the red carpet. "Honestly, they're more together than I am. Zahara's the most organized in the family."

"It's just so wonderful to have their support," she added of her kids. "They're my friends."

She reflected on her journey in acting, and said that her kids keep her grounded. She said: "Your kids are teens. My son is closer to that age than I am now... and so all the things I love about that girl, I'm seeing in the spirit of them, and it's helping me return to myself a little bit."

Her character as Maleficent has also helped reignite her zest for life.

"I think because she was created at a time when there were those old-time movie stars, she was made to be a bit like those old-fashioned, classic stars," she explained. "She's a bit delicious. I encourage everyone to put on some horns and feel what it's like."

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil is in theaters on Oct. 18.

MATT DAMON OPENS UP ABOUT TURNING DOWN $250M

Matt Damon turned down $250 million to play the lead in Avatar, he reveals to British GQ in their latest cover story.

"Jim Cameron offered me Avatar," he tells the magazine. "And when he offered it to me, he goes, 'Now, listen. I don't need anybody. I don't need a name for this, a named actor. If you don't take this, I'm gonna find an unknown actor and give it to him, because the movie doesn't really need you. But if you take the part, I'll give you 10 percent of…'"

According to GQ, that would have added up to $250 million. The role eventually went to Sam Worthington.

And yes, he does admit that he regrets passing on the role, which has four sequels in the works.

"So, yeah. I've left more money on the table than any actor, actually," he admits. "I mean, the bigger thing still to this day, my bigger regret is -- it would have caused a problem for Paul Greengrass and for all my friends on The Bourne Ultimatum, so I couldn't do it -- but Cameron said to me in the course of that conversation, 'Well, you know, I've only made six movies.' I didn't realize that."

He continued: "He works so infrequently, but his movies, you know all of them. So it feels like he's made more than he has. I realized in having to say no that I was probably passing on the chance to ever work with him. So that sucked and that's still brutal. But my kids are all eating. I'm doing OK."

Damon can next be seen in Le Mans '66, co-starring Christian Bale.

GIGI HADID CONFRONTS RUNWAY CRASHER

A French comedian crashed Chanel's Spring-Summer 2020 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, but Gigi Hadid managed to confront her and escort her offstage.

Marie S'Infiltre, whose real name is Marie Benoliel, managed to evade security guards and scramble onto the runway, which was designed to look like the rooftops of Paris. She has about 230,000 subscribers on YouTube.

Footage posted by Dazed Fashion on Instagram show Hadid approaching Benoliel and ushering her away. It's not Benoliel's first gate-crash; last week, she showed up at Etam's runway show wearing metallic underwear. In 2017, she appeared on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, with the words "seeking role" and a phone number written on her back.

In a statement sent to CNN, a spokesperson for Chanel said: "This person is a comedian known for this type of prank. She had crashed another runway recently. Her presence on the catwalk was not planned. Security guards simply led her to the exit at the end of the show."
