Entertainment News

It has only been a couple of days since Trevor Noah was announced as the new host of The Daily Show but he is already in hot water. The 31-year-old is being called out on social media over some offensive tweets he has posted over the years targeting Jews and women.

The tweets were written between 2008 and 2014. He even tweeted about Bruce Jenner's transition last month writing, "Looking at how successful all the Kardashian women are, I don’t blame Bruce Jenner at all." Trevor responded to the backlash on Twitter writing, "To reduce my views to a handful of jokes that didn't land is not a true reflection of my character, nor my evolution as a comedian."

  • Comedy Central also defended Trevor in a statement on Tuesday (March 31st) saying, "Like many comedians, Trevor Noah pushes boundaries; he is provocative and spares no one, himself included. To judge him or his comedy based on a handful of jokes is unfair. Trevor is a talented comedian with a bright future at Comedy Central."
  • One blogger wrote on the Daily Caller, "Many young people don't watch ‘The Daily Show' just to laugh -- they watch the show to get their news. The show shapes perceptions."
  • Author Roxane Gay came to Trevor's defense by tweeting, "I'm not saying his old tweets are ok but I hope you are crawling through the tweets of a range of comedians. The results will be interesting."

Trevor's Tweets:

I like women that don't wear make up. For me they're like pizza- still great the next morning!

This year's Best Actress Oscar winner, Julianne Moore, is apparently not convincing enough for the Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry. According to local newspaper the Hürriyet Daily News, Julianna was fired for turning in a bad performance during a commercial shoot for tourism in Turkey.

Sources say that Julianne shot a promotional video in L.A. last year where she discussed her time visiting the country as a child. She was allegedly asked to reshoot her part because of "poor acting" and declined the request. Iconisus & I Mean It, the ad agency behind the production, claims they have taken a $1.5 million hit because of the cancellation.

  • The entire project was estimated to have cost $4 million.
  • The newspaper also claims that several prominent figures in Turkey were opposed to Julianne's involvement from the start because of her "depressive persona."

Vanessa Hudgens says she got mad about Zac Efron's fans while they were a couple. She discussed their relationship during a recent interview with the New York Times while promoting her Broadway debut in Gigi.

The 26-year-old admitted, "I went through a phase when I was really mean because I was so fed up. Girls were running after him, and I was giving them death stares. Then I realized that's not what that's about. 'Spread the love, be a good person, they support you, be nice.'"

  • Zac and Vanessa dated from 2006 to 2010. She is currently dating actor Austin Butler.

Russell Crowe insists that his comments to Australia's Women's Weekly last year about Hollywood actresses needing to act their age were misunderstood.

He cleared things up during a recent interview with UK's The Guardian saying, "I was merely trying to point out that as you age, the types of roles you play change. But what I said about knowing 40-year-old women who are absolutely certain that because they eat the right things, they do yoga, look after their bodies...they look sensational, but that still doesn't mean they look 21. In their eyes, there's not the ingénue kind of innocence. I can't be the gladiator any more. I don't have that kind of physicality." Russell added, "Look...the thing that people are talking about in terms of ageism or sexism or whatever, that's prevalent everywhere and it's male and female. I'm just saying: be comfortable in your own skin. Sure, you know, if you're lucky enough you get to be the ingénue, but then at a certain point, you're the dowager. But enjoy playing that role, too."

REBEL WILSON OPENS UP ABOUT BEING A BIG GIRL IN HOLLYWOOD: Rebel Wilson appears in the new issue of Elle magazine where she talks about how her weight affects her work and her fashion choices. She explains about fashion, "It's becoming important for me. I saw a lot of girls were beginning to notice what I wear and I feel a kind of responsibility, because there aren't any women in Hollywood my size and age." Rebel goes on to say, "You need to be physically strong for this job. I like to have the stamina to work 16 hours a day. I may eat a lot, but I am very healthy." She also opens up about being a female comedian in the male-dominated field saying, "How I see it is, I do two types of job: dream jobs like female-driven comedies and the other job which is basically the boys' club. I have done three big movies with men -- these are talented, strong-minded males, but you have to find a way to work that system. Those male roles are 90% written and formed by the time the filming starts but the female roles are only 20% there. It's unfair, but I love being funny so I improve the role, work with the limited parameters and opportunities and maximize them...If you are a woman in that situation you work harder, sharpen your skills more; you need to be two or three times as good as the guys. I just go in there and try and crush it."

RYAN PHILLIPPE GETS MISTAKEN FOR HIS DAUGHTER'S BROTHER: Ryan Phillippe has managed to hold onto his boyish good looks. The 40-year-old revealed during a recent chat with Variety that he has been mistaken as the brother of his 15-year-old daughter Ava. He explained, "It's crazy. And still, I get carded constantly. My daughter hates it, because sometimes people have thought I'm her brother, and she's freaked out by that." Ryan went on to say that hearing about a reboot of his movie I Know What You Did Last Summer brings him back to the reality that he is old.

SUSAN SARANDON'S EX OPENS UP ABOUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP: Susan Sarandon's ex-boyfriend, Jonathan Bricklin, wants to clear a few things up regarding their relationship -- specifically being called her boy toy. The 37-year-old told Page Six, "I felt like I never lived up to that. I wasn't a backup dancer for Madonna, so I felt like no one knows anything about me ...She's not dating some young male model that could look pretty in tabloid pictures. I also wanted to portray my romantic relationship with Susan in a romantic way that represented how I feel about her and how good our relationship was. I have a lot of self-confidence. I loved her dating me, and I never felt embarrassed for her dating me. What I felt was, the general public and maybe her family or friends maybe felt that I wasn't good enough for her." Jonathan and 68-year-old Sarandon dated for six years but recently broke up. Their split was rumored to be caused by his participation in a dating reality show for AOL called Connected.

DAVE CHAPPELLE WAS THE VICTIM OF A RACIALLY-CHARGED INCIDENT: A man in New Mexico was arrested for a racially-charged attack against Dave Chappelle during a stand-up show in Santa Fe. According to TMZ, the man was taken into custody for throwing a banana peel at the comedian who he claims was actually making racist comments to his friend. The cops took him in for battery and disorderly conduct.

KATIE HOLMES REACTS TO ANGELINA JOLIE'S KIDS' CHOICE AWARDS SPEECH: Katie Holmes gushed over Angelina Jolie while discussing her Kids' Choice Awards speech on the red carpet for The Woman in Gold premiere. Katie, who attended the award show with daughter Suri, told Entertainment Tonight, "I'm such a fan of Angelina. I think she's incredible in all aspects of her life. I think she's just an inspiration. And her speech just, you know, topped it off." Angelina said while accepting the Favorite Villain award, "I want to say that when I was little, like Maleficent I was told that I was different. And I felt out of place, and too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize: Different is good. So, don't fit in, don't sit still, don't ever try to be less than what you are, and when someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up high and be proud. And, as your villain, I would also say, cause a little trouble -- it's good for you."

BARBARA WALTERS RETURNING TO TV: Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement to host a new show. The 85-year-old will lead ID network's new crime series American Scandal.

FX RENEWS 'THE AMERICANS': FX has picked up The Americans for a fourth season.

We are blessed with an extraordinary cast and crew and grateful that we'll all be able to continue telling this story that we love so much." The spy drama will return for another 13 episodes in 2016. Season three wraps up on April 22nd.

'NEW GIRL' RENEWED BY FOX: Fox sitcom, New Girl, has been renewed. The Zooey Deschanel-led comedy will return for a fifth season next fall. The network said in a statement, "Four seasons in, New Girl continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television. The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of Liz Meriwether, Brett Baer, Dave Finkel and the entire New Girl team. We absolutely love this show and we're so excited to bring it back for season five." The show will also enter syndication in the fall on TBS and MTV.

Tara Reid convinced a stranger she met on a flight to L.A. to get a tattoo of her name. According to TMZ, she met DJ Crichy Crich on the way home from Ultra Music Festival in Miami where they apparently bonded over drinks.

Somewhere along the way, Tara apparently convinced her new friend to hit up a tattoo parlor to get her name inked on his arm. Crich explained his decision-making to the paparazzi saying, "I met her on the f***in plane...and got shitfaced on the plane...and we had a great time." When asked if he thinks he'll regret it, he responded, "No! Do I look like a guy who regrets things? Cause I don't."
