The exes are all good
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux‘s split earlier this year wasn’t super-surprising. What was shocking, however, was there was no drama that went with it. They just announced their split — and that was it. We didn’t hear anything from Jen or Justin about their breakup, only reports based on ‘insiders’ and ‘sources’ claims. But enough time has finally gone by for Theroux to talk about it.
“The good news is that was probably the most — I’m choosing my words really carefully — it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity,” Theroux told The New York Times. “In a weird way, just sort of navigating the inevitable perception of it is the exhausting part.”
Hmm, think it has anything to do with those reports that the couple were never legally married to begin with? Nah.
“Neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other,” continued Theroux. “It’s more like, it’s amicable. It’s boring, but, you know, we respected each other enough that it was as painless as it could be.”
Justin added that, “it was heartbreaking only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day. But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of.”
How nice is this? Is a “gentle separation” is the new “conscious uncoupling?” Maybe. And we’re OK with it.
Serena and Meghan have been “relying on each other a lot recently”
With talk that Duchess Meghan has been feeling isolated in her new royal life, it’s good to know that she still has old friends to turn to. Serena Williams revealed in a new interview that she and Meghan have been in contact as of late.
“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” Serena told Australia’s The Sunday Project. “We … have known each other for a long time, but we really are kind of relying on each other a lot recently.”
Both women have experienced all kinds of highs and lows, putting them under a glaring spotlight unlike almost any other. But that’s what friends are for. You can talk to them, cry, scream, rant, rave. And if anyone needs a chance to vent, it’s Serena and Meghan.
George and Charlotte were part of a wedding and were fantastic, as usual
Another weekend, another wedding — at least for Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The royal siblings took on the roles of pageboy and bridesmaid for the third time in their lives, this time for the wedding of Robert Snuggs and Sophie Carter, a close friend of Duchess Kate.
Their mom stayed close to them as the youngsters posed for pics with the newlyweds and other members of the wedding party. Charlotte was adorable in a white dress and flower crown. George wore a white shirt and baby-blue short pants.
And their parents coordinated with the kids, with Kate wearing a blue coatdress and William looking dapper in a black suit with pale blue dress shirt. Sorry, Robert and Sophie, but your thunder was stolen.

Justin Timberlake and Shawn Mendes is the duo we never knew we needed
Justin Timberlake performed at the Saturday show of the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas but he wasn’t alone. He brought out a surprise special guest and the crowd couldn’t be happier.
“Can I do something special for you tonight?” JT asked the crowd. “Ladies and gentlemen, I’m a big fan of this young man. He’s one of the coolest cats I’ve met, he’s very talented, and he’s about to bless you — please welcome Shawn Mendes to the stage.”

The two sang “What Goes Around … Comes Around,” then ended with a line from “Say Something,” Timberlake’s song with Chris Stapleton. Perfect. Collaboration, stat!

Chris Pratt wants to be just like Tom Cruise
When it comes to his career, Chris Pratt not only wants to do what Tom Cruise has done but also how he’s done it.
“One of the career goals that I have based on Tom Cruise is his reputation as being a really nice, positive guy who works hard,” Pratt told The Associated Press. “I’ve never actually met him, but I would like — if you’re going to leave a legacy, it’d be nice to have it be that people thought you were nice and easy to work with and you worked hard. I think that’s pretty cool.”
And, hey, if Pratt can run on-screen the way Cruise does, even better.
“Mission: Impossible — he ran across London, across bridges, over buildings. Yeah, Tom is a great runner,” Pratt added. “He did all his own jumping, he was flying the helicopter, he really was like — oh, if there’s a question of whether or not I’m the best at this, let me put that question to bed. He’s the best.”
He really is, but Chris isn’t half-bad. Run, Pratt. Run.
