KRISTEN STEWART REVEALS AVERSION TO ATTENTION, GHOST-TALKING ABILITIES

Kristen Stewart covers Vanity Fair's September issue, and inside, she opens up about the choices she made after been thrust into the limelight after starring in the Twilight series.

Stewart explains: "I think I've grown out of this, but I used to be really frustrated that because I didn't leap willingly into being at the center of a certain amount of attention, that it seemed like I was an a++hole. I am in no way rebellious. I am in no way contrarian. I just want people to like me."

Stewart famously made headlines for her relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, then her cheating scandal with married director Rupert Sanders. Since then, she's been linked to Stella Maxwell, who also attended the shoot.

"I only date people who complement me," she quipped.

Stewart admits that she was excited to finally work with indie directors like Kelly Reichard and Olivier Assayas.

She explains: "It gave me a chance to not weigh something down. It was so much bigger than me. My baggage was so minuscule in comparison to what Reichardt's and Assayas's story lines are, as filmmakers. I was finally given a chance to be looked at, not as this thing in this celebrity-obsessed culture that was like, 'Oh, that's the girl from Twilight.'"

GHOST GIRL

She also gave insight into her stance on the supernatural. Yes, she does believe in ghosts.

Stewart spills: "I talk to them. If I'm in a weird, small town, making a movie, and I'm in a strange apartment, I will literally be like, ‘No, please, I cannot deal. Anyone else, but it cannot be me.' Who knows what ghosts are, but there is an energy that I'm really sensitive to. Not just with ghosts, but with people. People stain rooms all the time."

Stewart can next be seen in Charlie's Angels November 15.

TWITTER FREAKS AS SHANINA SHAIK SAYS VICTORIA’S SECRET SHOW IS CANCELED

The annual televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has had its share of love and hate since the first show in 1995, but culture seems to be catching up with both the show and the brand.

There have been iconic moments, including Rihanna's strut in a pink lace number and Ariana Grande avoiding Elsa Hosk's wigs, but this year, following the company and it's founder's uncomfortably close ties to accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, not to mention an era of body positivity following a #MeToo backlash, the show may be over, and Twitter has mixed feelings.

While some were "sad" to see the long-running show go, many shared their glee, tweeting out "finally!" and "we're evolving!"

THE SHOW IS OVER?

The 28-year-old model Shanina Shaik, who has walked in the 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, and 2018 shows, told The Daily Telegraph: "Unfortunately the Victoria's Secret show won't be happening this year."

So it's not coming from the brand, but …. Shaik added: "It's something I'm not used to because every year around this time I'm training like an angel. But I'm sure in the future something will happen, which I'm pretty sure about. I'm sure they're trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show because it's the best show in the world."

The Epstein connection and cultural shift aren't the only issues brewing behind the scenes. The brand's parent company L Brands' chief marketing officer Ed Razek sparked controversy when he told Vogue about their stance on inclusivity: "It's like, why doesn't your show do this? Shouldn't you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don't think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It's a 42-minute entertainment special. That's what it is. It is the only one of its kind in the world, and any other fashion brand in the world would take it in a minute, including the competitors that are carping at us. And they carp at us because we're the leader."

JAMES CORDEN OPENS UP ABOUT RETIREMENT

With just a year left in his contract with CBS, James Corden is opening up about his past, present and future in entertainment. The 40-year-old Late Late Show host tells British GQ for the September issue: "The day might come and I might not be brave enough. I've got to try to make peace with this idea that if I walk away from this show, there's a chance I become a question on Jeopardy. One people struggle to answer."

Corden also admits that he's grappling with the public's perception of him, versus the reality.

"I understand the version of me that people want to meet, and I'll give them that, and that's alright," he says. "'Cause it's actually harder, it's more work to be rude and abrupt. And I don't want to be that 'Do you mind?' person."

He also discusses his unconventional Hollywood looks and how grateful he is for being given the opportunity to show his worth.

"I was learning that if you looked like me, people reckoned you were about right for playing a newsagent in a Hugh Grant movie," he jokes. "Nobody was about to pull a seat out at the table and say, 'Come and sit down.' I was going to have to get to this table and budge people up."

BIG LITTLE LIES 3? Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are opening up about reports that Big Little Lies 2 director Andrea Arnold was forced to cede control to season 1 director Jean-Marc Vallee halfway through, and whether or not there will be a third season. Witherspoon told EW there was no controversy. "In our minds, there is no controversy. We just love the show. We had such a great time doing it. There was a lot of misinformation and no credited sources on any of the information. This was an incredibly collaborative process for all of us and the idea that anyone was mistreated and not communicated with is completely not true," Witherspoon said. Regarding a third season, she said: "If there are conversations still to be had, I think that's really what determines if we can tell a season three. Is it as good as season one and two? Does the audience still have questions? Do we have answers?" Kidman said: "We will decide as a group. We listen to the way in which people react because so much of TV is a very immediate medium. Every single person who has made this has said this show is bigger than any single one of us."

BEHIND THE SCENES AT MEGHAN MARKLE’S ‘VOGUE’ + BACKLASH

Meghan Markle guest-edited the upcoming September issue of British Vogue, and while she reportedly refused to appear on the cover for fear of drawing attention away from others, the cover features 15 women who are "raising the bar for equality, kindness, justice and open mindedness," and there's a mirror so readers can include themselves in the 16th slot.

Inside, readers will find an exclusive chat between The Duchess and former First Lady Michelle Obama, a conversation between the Duke of Sussex and Dr. Jane Goodall, plus pieces by Brené Brown, Jameela Jamil and many others.

Markle shared an image of the cover on the Instagram account she and husband Prince Harry share, writing: "Guest Editing the September issue of British Vogue has been rewarding, educational and inspiring. To deep dive into this process, working quietly behind the scenes for so many months, I am happy to now be able to share what we have created. A huge thanks to all of the friends who supported me in this endeavour, lending their time and energy to help within these pages and on the cover. Thank you for saying ‘Yes!' - and to Vogue's editor Edward Enniful, thank you for this wonderful opportunity."

BEHIND THE SCENES

In a statement, Meghan said her goal was to "take the year's most read fashion issue and steer its focus to the values, causes and people making impact in the world today."

The women featured include Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Jacinda Ardern, Laverne Cox, Jamil, Jane Fonda and many more.

Meghan reportedly personally asked the FLOTUS to take part in her "secret project" over a lunch of chicken tacos while she was still pregnant with her son, Archie.

The Duchess called Obama's responses a "thoughtful, reflective and beautifully curated narrative – a gentle reminder not of how but of why she has become such a globally respected public figure."

Obama gave the Duchess food for thought regarding motherhood. "Being a mother has been a masterclass in letting go," Obama wrote in response to Meghan's question about what motherhood has taught her. "Try as we might, there's only so much we can control. And, boy, have I tried — especially at first. As mothers, we just don't want anything or anyone to hurt our babies. But life has other plans. Bruised knees, bumpy roads and broken hearts are part of the deal."

"Motherhood has taught me that, most of the time, my job is to give them the space to explore and develop into the people they want to be. Not who I want them to be or who I wish I was at that age, but who they are, deep inside," she said. "Motherhood has also taught me that my job is not to bulldoze a path for them in an effort to eliminate all possible adversity. But instead, I need to be a safe and consistent place for them to land when they inevitably fail; and to show them, again and again, how to get up on their own."

Vogue UK's editor is thrilled with the overall look of the mag and her choices.

"As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege," he wrote.

"From the very beginning, we talked about the cover — whether she would be on it or not. In the end, she felt that it would be in some ways a "boastful" thing to do for this particular project. She wanted, instead, to focus on the women she admires."

BACKLASH

As with anything involving Meghan, there has been a bit of a backlash. The most serious criticism came from Samantha Brett and Steph Adams, who wrote a book she wrote an essay for, dubbed The Game Changers. The cover also features a grid, and Brett is accusing her of "ripping off" their visual concept. She tells The Daily Mail: "It's obviously very flattering, she obviously likes our concept! I love Meghan and am a huge fan, but if what people are alerting us to is true, then it's extremely disappointing."

JENNIFER ANISTON AND JUSTIN THEROUX REUNITE TO MOURN BELOVED DOG DOLLY

Jennifer Aniston and her ex-husband Justin Theroux reunited over the weekend to say goodbye to their beloved dog Dolly, who died on Sunday.

"Tonight, at sunset, after a heroic struggle… our most loyal family member and protector, Dolly A. laid down her sword and shield. She was surrounded by her entire family," Theroux, 47, wrote on Instagram.

He continued: "‘The one that never deserts, the one that never proves ungrateful… is the dog— faithful and true, even in death,'" roughly quoting late Senator George Graham Vest. "Rest In Peace Dolly. #adoptdontshop #rescuedog."

Theroux also posted snapshots from the memorial, which showed Dolly surrounded by flower petals. One picture, which showed him holding a beautifully manicured hand, prompted speculation of a renewed romance between the pair.

Their friends, including Courteney Cox, Trudie Styler, Todd Oldham, Cat Power, Amy Sedaris and Orlando Bloom, extended their sympathy to the pair.

Aniston and Theroux split last February after two+ years of marriage and seven years as a couple. During their 2015 wedding, Dolly and their pit-bull-boxer mix Sophie participated in the wedding.

BRAD PITT LIKENS HARVEY WEINSTEIN SCANDAL TO MANSON MURDERS

50 years have passed since actress Sharon Tate was murdered by Charles Manson's followers, and the experience of starring in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which documents the murder and the events that surrounded it, has led Brad Pitt to draw parallels between that era and ours.

After news of the murder in 1969 spread, Pitt said: "People started locking doors again. We were coming off a tumultuous decade of assassinations and the free-love and civil rights movements, and, as I understand it, there was still hope. But when this hit? And even rich white celebrities were in danger? No one was safe. Even people living the dream."

When asked if anything has "rattled Hollywood" in a similar way, Pitt was quick to respond.

"Harvey Weinstein," he replied, later asking: "Can I say that?"

More than 80 women, including Pitt's ex Gwyneth Paltrow, accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including rape. When the scandal erupted, Paltrow said that Pitt and she were dating at the time, and that Pitt took Weinstein aside and told him to leave her alone.

Leonardo DiCaprio also reflected on the loss of innocence.

"When my parents described it, it was as the end of this idealized revolution," he told The Sunday Times. "My parents are still hippies, but it was the loss of this dream. As Quentin describes, you sort of portray this utopia, but there is a mildew around the canvas that brought the darkness of humanity into play and ended a lot of my parents' hopes for how they could infuse that ‘love and peace' ideology into the rest of the world. It all sort of crashed and ended so much that some talk of it as a conspiracy. It was the total end of an era—immediately."

This is Tarantino's ninth film, but the first made without Weinstein, who is facing criminal charges of sexual assault, as producer.

SELMA BLAIR SAYS SHE WAS AFRAID HER SON WOULD BE ‘EMBARRASSED’ BY HER MS

Selma Blair was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis almost a year ago, and since then, she has continued to wow fans with her refreshingly open and honest approach to the disease.

Blair tells People that she was afraid her 7-year-old son Arthur would be embarrassed by the sometimes unpredictable symptoms the disease can present. But as it turns out, Arthur just sees Blair as his mom.

"He says, 'Mommy's not sick. Mommy's brave,'" Blair said. The 47-year-old says that Arthur has seen the effects of MS himself on multiple occasions, including falling down stairs and running to the bathroom to be sick.

And yet he still loves showing her off to his friends, as ever. "He said, 'I love when you come to school because you make the kids laugh and you answer all their questions,'" Blair said.

Blair explained that she often addressed questions about why she "walks and talks" funny. "I had no idea Arthur was proud of that. I thought 'I'm probably an embarrassment,' but to know I'm not was one of my proudest moments," Blair shared.

And she also explained that she stays active, by getting creative with some of the rules of the game. "We play dodge ball, but I don't dodge because that could be so dangerous," Blair said. "Maybe in the future for sure, but I don't move side to side perfectly, and so I get to just hit him and then he throws it back to me, really chivalrously. And then I get to hit him again, and he thinks it's amazing."

According to the Mayo Clinic, MS is "a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord." Symptoms may include tremors, electric-shock sensations, numbness, loss of vision and slurred speech, among others.
