Chrissy Teigen “will actually die” without new kid-friendly scary movie suggestions

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) — Turns out Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s three-year-old Luna loves scary movies, much to their chagrin.

The Bring the Funny host turned to Twitter on Wednesday and begged her followers for much-needed advice.  “What are some good “scary” movies but for kids? luna loves creepy s***,” tweeted an exasperated Teigen.  “She loves Coraline but I cannot watch it anymore, I will actually die.”

Thankfully, the self professed de-motivational speaker found something to appease her toddler for the time being.  “The new animated Addams Family doing the trick right now but will need more soon!,” pleaded the mom of two before admitting “yes we are weird.”

The good news is, Teigen turned to the right place and received an abundance of advice from friends and fans.  

Model Gigi Hadid helpfully suggested Spirited Away while Zelda Williams went all-in and offered a plethora of titles

ParanormanLabyrinthNightmare Before ChristmasThe Secrets of NimhFrankenweenie9Corpse Bride,” the 30-year-old excitedly rattled off before admitting that she, too, lived for “creepy kids movies.” 

After naming a few other potential scary movies fit for kids, the daughter of the late Robin Williams dared, “You wanna scar your kid for life show them Watership Down.”

However, Teigen’s Twitter thread eventually made its way to the one who started Luna’s scary movie obsession — Neil Gaiman, the creator of Coraline

The author helpfully proposed titles such as Scooby Doo and Missing Link before admitting that he, too, plans on stealing some of Teigen’s hard earned suggestions to appease his own three-year-old, Ash.

So, what movie did Teigen eventually settle on?  “We went with Insidious,” the model joked.  “Thanks, guys!”

Hanx hoax! Tom Hanks isn’t hawking CBD online

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Tom Hanks called out an advertisement using his image to promote CBD on Tuesday, calling the ad in question a “false and an intentional hoax.”

The ad from an undisclosed company appears to promote “CannaPro CBD” and features a photo of the actor, alongside a fake quote attributed to him.

“The advances Dr. Oz has made in the CBD industry are remarkable. I wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t had the chance to try it out for myself. After using CannaPro CBD for two weeks I was already feeling like a new me,” the quote reads.

In an Instagram post, Hanks shared the ad, writing, “I’ve never said this and would never make such an endorsement. Come on, man!” As always, he signs off with his usual: “Hanx.”

The false ad also garnered criticism from Dr. Mehmet Oz, who’s mentioned in the quote.

Reposting Hanks’ message, Dr Oz added, “Could not agree more with @tomhanks. This is a fake and misleading advertisement intended to take advantage of consumers using false claims and our likenesses illegally. I am not involved with any cannabis companies.”

Hanks previously shared another fake advertisement, also using his likeness to promote CBD, in July 2019.

High-profile actors and actresses often fall victim to celebrity endorsement theft. Ellen DeGeneres and Sandra Bullock filed a joint lawsuit in November 2019 against 100 anonymous defendants for using their name and likeness for unauthorized product endorsements.  Bullock and DeGeneres say their images and personas are mostly used to push beauty wares like anti-aging serum and weight-loss products.

The FTC and Better Business Bureau told ABC News that the issue has impacted millions across the United States. Some of the scammers creating the false adverts can be difficult to identify, experts say.

It’s official: The Ghostbusters are back for ‘Afterlife’

“Ghostbusters” – Columbia Pictures(LOS ANGELES) — The boys are back!  As rumored, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson will once again strap on their proton packs in the upcoming film sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The news was confirmed in a new Vanity Fair interview with  Murray, who of course played sarcastic parapsychologist Dr. Peter Venkman to Aykroyd’s Dr. Raymond Stantz, Ernie Hudson’s Winston Zeddemore and the late Harold Ramis’ Dr. Egon Spengler.

The cast, along with Sigourney Weaver, did appear in the ill-fated 2016 all female reboot of Ghostbusters, though director Paul Feig chose to have them play other characters.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Paul Rudd as a science teacher whose students find themselves in the middle of a spooky mystery. One of the students, played by McKenna Grace, is none other than Egon’s granddaughter.

Ghostbusters co-creator Ramis died in 2014 at 69. Of the film’s plot, Murray says, “Well, we are a man down. That’s the deal,” he said somberly. “And that’s the story that we’re telling, that’s the story they’ve written.”

Murray famously had a decades-long feud with his Groundhog Day director and Stripes co-star Ramis, but reportedly buried the hatchet before Ramis passed away.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife opens July 10.

‘Station 19’ co-stars Jaina Lee Ortiz and Boris Kodjoe promise a wild ride in season three

ABC/Allyson Riggs(LOS ANGELES) — The ABC drama Station 19 returns Thursday night for the start of season three, and stars Jaina Lee Ortiz and Boris Kodjoe tell ABC Audio that the stories we’re going to see will be a gutsier this time around.

“This sort of new season of storytelling where we’re taking real life events and, you know, the situations that the characters are put through kind of resonate with the audience,” says Jaina, who plays Lieutenant Andy Herrera on the series.

“So we go deeper,” adds Boris, who portrays the fire station’s new captain Robert Sullivan. “Deeper, dirtier, realer, because that’s real life. That’s what you want to see as somebody who’s watching the show, you want to be able to relate to these things.”

Ortiz says the new season will pick up where the fall finale of Station 19‘s parent show, Grey’s Anatomy left off.

“A car crashes into Joe’s bar and you have characters from Station 19 in there you have Jackson, Ben, Pruitt and a bunch of the interns from Grey’s,” she explains. “So, you know, we don’t know what could happen. Station 19, as you know, is in there trying to save everyone’s lives.”

The two warn they’ll be “A lot of death and devastation…So hold onto your seats. You don’t know what’s going to happen.”

To offset the the show’s heavy subject matter, Jaina and Boris says the cast tries to keep the atmosphere light when the cameras aren’t rolling.

“You’ve got to balance it out a little bit because you can’t if you’re playing doom, doom, doom all day,” says Boris. “It has an effect in here on your soul. So sometimes you got to make light of it. We have a great time. It’s a family.”

Tyler Cameron tells Jennifer Garner he’d swipe right on her Tinder

Presley Ann/WireImage(NEW YORK) — After breaking up with model Gigi Hadid, Bachelorette star Tyler Cameron has apparently set his sights on Jennifer Garner.

Here’s how it happened. Wednesday saw the celebrity-driven viral bandwagon, started by country star Dolly Parton, about how one would appear or conduct his or herself on certain websites — LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, and Tinder — by using different self-portraits to represent each.

For Garner’s collage, she selected a stoic but classic business look to represent LinkedIn, a friendly flannel image for Facebook, a glamour shot for Instagram, and a photo of her wearing a bikini bottom while on a paddle board for Tinder.  

However, fans were quick to point out that the 13 Going on 30 star’s Tinder look wasn’t quite saucy enough.

After fielding a suggestion about using her Instagram look for the X-rated website instead, Garner jokingly responded, “Shoot, is THAT why no one swipes?”

Cue 26-year-old Tyler Cameron sliding into the replies.  The model took his shot on Wednesday by boldly declaring, “I’m still swiping right.”

Unfortunately for him, the 47-year-old actress has not responded to his flattery.  Garner has, however, responded to Dolly Parton calling her “Perfect.”

Cameron was in consideration of becoming this season’s Bachelor, however, his prior relationship with Hadid caused him to be passed over for Pilot Peter Weber.

So, whether or not the former Bachelorette star or Garner will be exchanging a roses remains up in the air.
