Everything you need to know about Kieran Culkin's wife Jazz Charton. Kieran Culkin, who is riding a wave of success playing Roman Roy on HBO's hit show "Succession," is taking a break from daddy duty to prepare for the Golden Globes on Sunday night. The 37-year-old supporting actor nominee welcomed his first child in September and has largely been spending his time at home with his wife, Jazz Charton. However, this weekend, he'll be reveling in the show's success in Los Angeles. While it's unclear if she will be leaving the baby for this year's show, the couple stunned in Dior on last year's Golden Globes red carpet. Charton, 32, has even hinted that their daughter, Kinsey Sioux "Zissou," was conceived that night. "My favourite surprise so far," Charton captioned an Instagram of her sonogram in May 2019. "We had no idea how much we wanted this until it happened. We're excited/terrified/ecstatic/unprepared but we cannot wait to meet our little unexpected creation in September #theglobeswerefun #koalatummy" Culkin and London-born Charton, a former model, first met at a New York bar in September 2012. He told Britain's iNews that he went up to her when the guy she was with went to the bathroom. "I asked if he was her boyfriend and when she said no, I asked if I could be her boyfriend. We've been together ever since," he said. In mid-2013, the pair were on a road trip around the US, when they stopped in Iowa and decided to tie the knot. "Official!" she wrote alongside a photo of a marriage certificate. In 2017, Charton posted a throwback pic from their nuptials. "#tbt to taking time out of our road trip to get married by the side of the road in Iowa during a storm 4 years ago today. Still the best pit stop I've ever made," she wrote. Before finding out they were expecting, Culkin said they weren't planning on having children. "It just seems like a lot to take on. I suppose if she gets pregnant, that would be fine, but it's really not on our horizon," he said in 2018. When Kinsey was born in September, Charton took to social media to announce the happy news, as well as share details from the birthing experience. "After 25 hours of laboring at home, we arrived at the hospital too late for any pain meds as I was already dilated and ready to push (if I ever do this again I want ALL THE DRUGS, all of them!) and she was out within the hour during a full moon on Friday the 13th," she captioned a pic of her snuggling her baby. "Of course, our daughter was born on Friday the 13th." She continued, "This is me 4 days postpartum -- I live in sexy surgical mesh underwear that's keeping a world of pain in check, my boobs are engorged, I burst blood vessels in my face from pushing, my big pregnant belly that I loved so much deflated to a mere paunch but it's all so worth it. I've never been more in love and we've never felt more complete." Not much else is known about Charton, except that she was raised by a single mother, an artist, in the UK. "Happy Father's Day to the single mamas too who have to try to fill both roles," Charton captioned a photo of her and her mom. And while it's unclear if Charton will be walking the carpet with Culkin on Sunday, she will definitely be cheering him on alongside their baby girl -- and their cat, Django-Bear. (PageSix)

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston Reunite at 2020 Golden Globes After-Party. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt attended the same 2020 Golden Globes after-parties on Sunday. The 50-year-old actress and the 55-year-old actor were at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif. for Netflix's big soiree. An eyewitness told E! News Pitt sat at a booth with Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest of their Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood cast. Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro joined them, as well. "Brad was in a great mood and very social with everybody -- except Jennifer Aniston, who kept her distance at a booth a level up behind Brad," the insider said. Later on in the evening, Pitt made his way down to the dance floor, where he spoke with a few fans who approached him and posed for some selfies. Aniston sat at a booth with Jason Bateman's wife, Amanda Anka, and Sandra Bullock. Party guests enjoyed a number of appetizers -- including egg rolls, fried chicken sliders and zucchini noodles -- and sipped on Moet and Chandon champagne. However, the exes did "briefly interact" during the CAA after-party at Los Angeles' Sunset Tower "They said hello very quickly," a source said. "Jen arrived after Brad. It was brief, but [they] were very cordial and friendly and seemed happy to be there. They approached each other once they saw each other inside and looked happy as they started to hug and say hello. Jen whispered something to Brad, but it wasn't in an affectionate way. They both didn't seem like they wanted to make a big deal about being together in the same room although it was a private party. They were trying to be low-key. Brad left shortly after and didn't stay at the party long." Again, Pitt chatted with DiCaprio while Aniston hung out with Bateman and Anka. "Jen was in a great mood," the insider said. "She seemed so happy to be out and mingling." Earlier in the night, Pitt told Entertainment Tonight he'll "run into Jen" and that "she's a good friend." In fact, Aniston was seen clapping and standing up for Pitt after he won Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture at the awards show. Of course, this shouldn't come as a huge surprise to the former couple's admirers. "They've been in touch over the last few years and talk occasionally," a source told E! News in December 2019. "If they run into each other they will congratulate each other and exchange pleasantries. They want the best for each other. There are no issues with being in the same place at the same time."

This Tom Hanks Viral Story About a Selfie Is Proof He's the Very Best. Like we needed another reason to love Tom Hanks, right? Shortly after receiving the Cecil B. deMille Award at the 2020 Golden Globes on Sunday, a fan recalled an amazing interaction they had with the Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood star, further proving that he's the best. Taking to Twitter, the T.Hanks fan shared a selfie that the Golden Globe-nominated star took on her phone when she left it unattended in his presence. Dressed in a simple hoodie and rocking his signature glasses, Hanks left the unsuspecting fan the gift of a lifetime. "A number of years ago I left my iPhone unattended in the same room as Tom Hanks," she wrote. "The next day, I found this photo in my camera roll. To be clear: I've never met him. But I do believe he is exactly who we hope he is, and I don't want to know if I'm wrong." The Forrest Gump star solidified his place as a national treasure during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes -- starting with his sweet shout-out to wife Rita Wilson and their children, who were all proudly watching in the audience. "A man is blessed, a man is blessed with a family sitting down front like that a wife who is fantastic in every way, who has taught me what love is...five kids who are braver and stronger and wiser than their old man," he said while tearing up. "And a loving group of people who have put away with me being away months and months at a time. Of course, otherwise I wouldn't be standing here if they didn't have to put up with that I can't tell you how much your love means to me." Then, Hanks reflected on the most valuable lesson he had learned from his early days in the industry as an intern at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival in the late '70s. "We all got yelled at by Dan Sullivan, the director, we had partied a little bit too much the night before," he said. "We were showing up for rehearsals and he screamed at us, he did actually scream at us, he said, 'Hey, look, you guys, you actors, you know what your job is? You have got to show up on time and you have to know the text and you have to have a head full of ideas, otherwise I can't do my job.' That was the greatest lesson a young actor could possibly ever first of all, the head full of ideas. Bring anything, try anything they might not use it. If it stinks, they won't use it." Offering some advice, he continued, "Knowing the text, and it's not just your lines, it's the whole thing. It's the red dot it's the theme of the movie. You've got to know it. You might not be right in the opinion you bring to it but you've got to come at it with some direction." (Eonline)

Kim Kardashian Slams Troll Who Claimed She Didn't Donate to Australia Fires. Kim Kardashian is setting the record straight. On Monday, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star fired back at a fan that accused her of not donating towards the devastating Australian bushfires. In a since-deleted tweet, a troll took aim at Kim, which prompted the mom of four to address their claims. She responded, "Nothing gets me more heated than to see people think they know what we donated to and to think we have to publicize everything." Prior to this, the KKW Beauty mogul retweeted several articles highlighting the devastation caused by the fires, which have teared through New South Wales and killed at least 23 people and about half a billion animals since September, to bring awareness to the situation that has been unfolding. Kim also tweeted, "Climate change is real," but didn't specify if she had donated to relief efforts and organizations. Taking to Instagram, Kim re-posted teeth whitening brand Hi-Smile's pledge to donate $100,000 to the Australian Red Cross, WIRES Wildlife Rescue and NSW Rural Fire Service in her Stories, encouraging her millions of followers to get involved. The SKIMS founder is among several celebrities that have donated towards the cause. After revealing that their Australian home is under threat from the wildfires, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban donated $500,000 to the Australian Fire Relief. "Our family's support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia," the Big Little Lies star shared. "We are donating $500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now." Pink also donated $500,000 to firefighters that have been fighting endlessly to stop the blazes. "I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires," she said on Instagram. "I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz." In recent days, celebs such as Kate Middleton and Prince William, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Naomi Watts, Jai Courtney, Hugh Jackman and Bindi Irwin have shown their support for the people of Australia via social media. The deadly Australia wildfires were also on everyone's minds during the 2020 Golden Globes, especially winner Russell Crowe, who was unable to attend tonight's ceremony in order to protect his home from the bushfires. For his acceptance speech, he sent a message that was read by presenter Jennifer Aniston that said, "Make no mistake, the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based. We need to act based on science, move our global workforce to renewable energy and respect our planet for the unique place it is." Fellow Aussie Cate Blanchett also took time to thank the volunteer firefighters who are working tirelessly to stop the blaze. Backstage, Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge reportedly stated she will auction the Ralph Russo suit she wore to the show and donate the money to fire relief charity. (Eonline)

Comedian Mark Curry is genuinely PISSED at Steve Harvey ... 'cause he claims the "Family Feud" host has stolen his material not once but TWICE.

Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial in New York begins this week and is poised to set the tone for the #MeToo era -- but despite more than 80 women coming forward with sexual-misconduct allegations against him, the disgraced movie mogul told Fox News he expects to be "fully exonerated." "I am expecting the truth to be told and the facts to be fully explored, and yes, I am expecting to be fully exonerated," Weinstein told Fox News via email. He's denied any wrongdoing and claimed all sexual encounters were consensual. The producer said he has been preparing for his trial "by spending time with my family, close friends and loved ones, and working closely with my legal and communication team." While rumors had long circulated about the movie mogul's alleged misconduct, it was the investigations of The New York Times and The New Yorker in 2017 that widely exposed many long-buried accusations. Women from all over the world have continued to come forward, helping spark the #MeToo movement and so-called "Weinstein effect." By May 2018, police arrested Weinstein on criminal charges in New York. "The past two years, especially with the onset of my medical issues, have been overwhelming, filled with soul searching and an abundance of self-awareness. I want to spend more time with my children to be a better father, and to be more patient and attentive to others around me," Weinstein said. The criminal charges stemmed from only two accusers; many of the allegations against the Hollywood producer were too old to support a formal indictment. However, many accusers have seen this trial as "critical" to bringing change to the culture in Hollywood and the workplace. A group of 25 women who called themselves "the silence breakers," including actresses Rose McGowan and Rosanna Arquette, issued a statement ahead of his trial. "Weinstein is a serial predator who sexually abused women for decades, taking advantage of his power and connections to systematically silence the women who could bring his crimes to light." They continued, "This trial is critical to show that predators everywhere will be held accountable and that speaking up can bring about real change. We refuse to be silenced and will continue to speak out until this unrepentant abuser is brought to justice." Harvey Weinstein is facing life in prison on five counts including predatory sexual assault, criminal sexual act in the first degree, rape in the first degree and rape in the third degree. He said he's looking forward for this trial to be over. "With my trial close I am looking forward to setting the record straight and moving ahead with my life." (Page Six)
