Ben Affleck Dealing with Alcohol Addiction?

Ben Affleck is once again in the middle of the media attention. According to a new report, the popular actor is dealing with alcohol addiction and is seeking rehab treatment for his issues. Allegedly, Ben has underwent a rehab stay a few months ago, but he now needs medical help once again.

The report was first shared by In Touch, which claimed that Ben’s addition issues have not been solved. The report cited a source reportedly close to the actor, which claimed that his “drinking has gotten worse.” The insider explained that the famous actor “is spiraling out of control” and this is why the people close to him “are urging him to go into inpatient rehab.”

The source explained that Ben is perfectly aware of this situation, but he wants to seek the treatment he needs at his own pace. “He knows he needs to check back into rehab,” the source claimed. “The problem is that he wants to go on his terms. He wants to do it on his time, but like most addicts, that time keeps getting put off. This relapse has gone on too long already,” the same insider explained.

The source revealed that when Ben makes the decision to undergo treatment, he is very committed to it and does exactly what he is required to do. “When he does [get help], he takes the treatment very seriously and listens to all of the staff’s advice,” the source said. “This is a disease and he wants nothing more than to be present for his family and his girlfriend.”

Ben has constantly been in the media attention following his separation from his former wife, actress Jennifer Garner. He is currently dating Lindsay Shookus. The source said that Lindsay may not be the best influence for the famous actor at the moment, mostly because Ben is encouraged to drink during their outings. The insider claimed that Lindsay does not realize that she is enabling his addition.

Ben underwent rehab about seven months ago to deal with his issues. A US Weekly report denied the claims made by In Touch, saying that a source close to the actor revealed that Ben is taking a lot of care of himself and is living a healthy life now.

Kim Cattrall Talks about Reasons in Not Wanting to Star in New Sex and the City Movie

Without a doubt, famous actress Kim Cattrall managed to create a lot of headlines lately. It is all related to her decision to not star in the planned third Sex and the City movie. And because of her decision to turn down this project, Kim was also criticized by her co-stars. Now, the actress decided to open up about this whole situation during a new interview.

The star, who played the role of Samantha Jones in the popular movies, talked about the subject during an interview with Piers Morgan. Kim told Morgan that her relationship with her co-stars, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, was toxic. She also claimed that her decision to not star in this movie has nothing to do with outrageous demands, as previously claimed.

“I’ve moved on, this is what my sixties are about, they’re about me making decisions for me not my career, for me. And that feels frickin fantastic,” the actress said during her interview. Kim also explained that the relationship with her co-stars “feels like a toxic relationship.” “They all have children and I am ten years older and since specifically the series ended I have been spending most of my time outside of New York so I don’t see them,” she explained. “The common ground that we had was the series and the series is over,” the actress concluded.

Of course, Kim also talked about the previous comments that Sarah Jessica Parker made about her decision. “I really think she could have been nicer,” Kim said. “I don’t know what her issue is, I never have. I never asked for any money, I never asked for any projects, to be thought of as some kind of diva is absolutely ridiculous,” Kim concluded.

The actress also said that she does not think there is a reason for the movie to not be filmed because she will not star in it. The producers can bring another character and can easily replace her. For now, it remains unclear what will happen in the future when it comes to this movie.

Roman Polanski Accused of Child Rape

Roman Polanski is once again in the media attention for some serious allegations. The famous filmmaker has been accused of child rape. This time the accusations came from Renate Langer, a German-born former actress, who said she was a victim of the filmmaker.

After Langer made these allegations, the Swiss police started an investigation against Polanski. Polanski is 84 years old now. So, Langer claimed that it all happened in 1972, when she was 15 years old. She said that Polanski sexually abused her in his home in Gstaad. That is where the filmmaker was living back then. According to The New York Times, the plaintiff also told the police that she never spoke about what happened back then because she felt ashamed and embarrassed.

However, she now decided to talk about what happened because she hoped that the police would investigate her claims. “I felt ashamed and embarrassed and lost and solo,” the star said. No other details were revealed at this point about the accusations, but we can surely say that this is not the first time when such claims have been made about Polanski.

In fact, the first allegations of the filmmaker having unlawful sex with a minor were linked to Samantha Geimer, who was allegedly abused by Polanski in 1977. This was a highly debated case because Polanski admitted to having sex with her. In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Polanski admitted that he pleaded guilty to the allegations. “I went to jail. I came back to the United States to do it, people forget about that, or don’t even know. I then was locked up here [in Zurich] after this festival. So in the sum, I did about four or five times than what was promised to me,” he said.

Two other women also accused Polanski of sexual abuse. One of them is Robin, who claimed that she was sexually abused in 1973, when she was 16. Charlotte Lewis claimed Polanski abused her also when she was 16 years old. It is yet to see what will happen in this newly filed case.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are Engaged

Famous Games of Thrones actor Kit Harington and his longtime girlfriend Rose Leslie are set to get married. The two famous actors actually met on the set of Game of Thrones. The two have been dating for no less than five years.

According to a source talking to The Sun, Kit decided to propose to Rose over the summer. And apparently, the two want to wed in the near future. “They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged,” the insider said. “Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle first,” the same source added.

According to this insider, Kit and Rose moved in together at the beginning of the year and since then the actor “felt it was the right time to take the next step.” When it comes to living together, Kit said that he was happy because he moved in with his best friend. “I said to her, cause she’s moved into my house, ‘Look darling, it’s important that this is our space. That it feels like our space. That you haven’t just moved into mine. Move anything you want around, change anything, chuck anything out,'” Kit said during a previous interview.

The famous actor and his girlfriend purchased this year a medieval home in Eastern England. And it surely seems that Kit is very much in love with his girlfriend. During an interview with Vogue Italia, the star claimed that he fell in love with Rose while filming the second season of Game of Thrones. “The three weeks in Iceland when we were shooting the second season. Because the country is beautiful, because the Northers Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” the actor explained. “If you’re attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love,” he concluded.

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have started dating in 2012. The two have always been very private about their personal life. The engagement rumors have not been confirmed for the moment.

Angelina Jolie Ready to Get Back to Work

Famous actress Angelina Jolie has definitely been through some difficult moments when it comes to her personal life. However, it seems that the star has finally been able to move on from those days and now Angelina is focusing on her career. So, it has been revealed that Angelina is ready to get back to work and plans on acting again.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that the star is not interested in a directing project at the moment and this is the main reason why she plans on taking on some roles. “Right now, I don’t have anything to direct that I feel passionate about like [First They Killed My Father], so I’ll do some acting,” the famous actress said. “I’ve taken over a year off now, because of my family situation, to take care of my kids,” the star went on to explain.

Angelina also said that she is looking forward to work at some new projects. Of course, the family situation that the actress was referring to is her divorce from husband Brad Pitt. The actress filed for divorce in September 2016, and the whole separation was filled with scandals.

So, Angelina said that she wants to work at the sequel of Maleficent, and she has also been in talks for a role in movie Cleopatra, a project actually first announced in 2010 and which has been delayed several times. “Maleficent, we’re working on, most likely. And I look forward to having some fun with that,” Angelina said. “Cleopatra, there is a script. There’s a lot of different things floating around. But I haven’t committed,” the star added.

Well, it seems that Angelina has been quite open in the past few days when it comes to talking about her life and her plans. The star also talked about the divorce during an interview with the Sunday Telegraph. She said that she doesn’t want to be single and it has been very difficult for her. Angelina and Brad’s divorce is yet to be finalized. The two are still negotiating on the custody of their six children, but they allegedly decided to keep everything private for the sake of the children.

4th Episode of Game of Thrones Leaks Online

Game of Thrones fans should find out that the newest episode of the famous television series has leaked online. This means that the fourth episode of the latest season of Game of Thrones is available before the official airing on HBO.

The leak was revealed by Star India, HBO’s distribution partner. Star India said that the breach is a serious issue and the companies plan on taking legal action. “This confirms the compromise of episode 4 of Game of Thrones Season 7, earlier this afternoon. We take this breach very seriously and have immediately initiated forensic investigations at our and the technology partner’s end to swiftly determine the cause. This is a grave issue and we are taking appropriate legal remedial action,” the statement said.

Without a doubt, this is a very serious issue for HBO, which has based its whole series on the surprise element, which has kept fans captured by Game of Thrones. Being able to find out what happened in the latest episode, before its airing on HBO, is surely not a great thing for the company.

The latest episode of Game of Thrones is titled “The Spoils of War.” The episode initially appeared on Reddit. This leaked episode is a low-resolution one. The episode leaked from Star India, as there allegedly is a watermark on the video which makes the connection with this distributor. At this point, there are no other details available about the leak.

However, it seems that this leak is not part of the hack that was revealed by HBO earlier this week. The company then announced its employees that hackers had stolen “proprietary information”, but gave no other insights into what happened. Some reports said that the hackers actually took 1.5 terabytes of data from the famous company, including two upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones. Some reports claimed that Star India could have been hacked by the same attackers, but this is just speculation for now, as a link has not been confirmed.

Angelina Jolie Denies allegations on Controversial Auditions

Angelina Jolie has been in the spotlight for months following her separation from famous husband Brad Pitt. Now, it seems that the famous actress has managed to get herself involved into a scandal linked to some controversial auditions.

It all started with a Vanity Fair report, which claimed that Angelina’s process of casting children for her upcoming movie has been an “emotional abuse”, and “cruel and unnecessary.” Angelina allegedly looked for children who had suffered emotional distress. She “looked at orphanages, circuses, and slum schools, specifically seeking children who had experienced hardship,” the report claimed.

“In order to find their lead, to play young Loung Ung, the casting directors set up a game, rather disturbing in its realism: they put money on the table and asked the child to think of something she needed the money for, and then to snatch it away,” the same report said. “The director would pretend to catch the child, and the child would have to come up with a lie,” it added.

As imagined, Angelina was not happy at all with all these claims. In fact, the famous actress almost immediately issued a statement, disputing the claims made by Vanity Fair. Angelina claimed that the exercise was an improvisation and it was actually from a scene from the movie. “The suggestion that real money was taken from a child during an audition is false and upsetting. I would be outraged myself if this had happened,” she said.

The famous actress also went on to explain that the producers took all the needed measures to make sure that the children who attend the auditions and who work for this movie are perfectly fine. This is why, their parents, as well as NGOs and doctors were present throughout the whole process.

The producer of the film also dismissed the claims, saying that casting was actually conducted in “the most sensitive way possible.” The producer also said that all kinds of children attended the auditions and they were asked to play an actual part of the movie, of course the best way to see their acting skills. Despite the denials, Vanity Fair stood up by its story.

Game of Thrones Episodes and Scripts Leaked?

Game of Thrones fans were definitely surprised with the latest developments of the famous television series. The first three episodes of the latest season of Game of Thrones were filled with surprises and maybe some were not what Daenerys Targaryen fans wanted or expected. Daenerys ended up with no allies, as they were all killed or captured.

Of course, fans from all over the world are now curious to find out what will happen next. And they may be able to discover it sooner than what they imagined. It has been revealed that HBO has been the victim of a new hack, which involved leaking upcoming episodes and scripts of Game of Thrones. Entertainment Weekly reported that the hackers have by now shared online information about other HBO shows, including Ballers and Room 104.

The hackers claimed that they will release more information, so some facts regarding Game of Thrones might become available. Naturally, this is a very bad thing for HBO, which is widely known for its struggle to keep the secret on what will happen next on the famous television series, which has become known for its surprising and unexpected evolutions.

“HBO recently experienced a cyber-incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information,” an official statement from HBO indicated. “We immediately began investigating the incident and are working with law enforcement and outside cybersecurity firms. Data protection is a top priority at HBO, and we take seriously our responsibility to protect the data we hold,” the same statement added.

HBO has not officially released what type of data has been stolen by hackers, so it is yet to find out what hackers will expose. The leak was initially exposed through an anonymous email received by reporters. “Hi to all mankind. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. What’s its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones……!!!!!! You are lucky to be the first pioneers to witness and download the leak. Enjoy it & spread the words. Whoever spreads well, we will have an interview with him. HBO is falling,” the email said.

Game of Thrones is without a doubt one of the most successful television series at the moment. The show has no less than 10 million viewers.

Ben Affleck to Exit Batman Role?

Apparently, famous actor Ben Affleck will not be playing the role of Batman for long. The star is currently promoting the upcoming Justice League movie, which is set to appear in November, but it seems that the producers of Batman do not have long term plans involving the famous actor.

Actually, it has been reported that the Warner Bros. studio is working to exit Ben from the movies. People reported that the studio actually plans on addressing this change somehow in its upcoming films. A source talking to People, allegedly close to the situation, said that the decision has already been made by the studio and most likely Ben Affleck will not be seen in the role of Batman for long.

The insider did not reveal too much on this subject, so it remains unclear when this will happen and if Ben is aware of the plans. However, there are definitely some indications pointing towards that, as the studio has previously decided to step away from the plan involving Ben directing the films. Furthermore, the studio is also dropping the script written by Ben.

Some reports have claimed that a reason for the studio to renounce its collaboration with Ben would be given by his age. The studio and the movie’s director might think of a trilogy for Batman and Ben is 45 years old. This would mean that he would star in the movies in his mid-50s and that might not be easy to do. However, this is just speculation at this point.

The report contradicts previous claims on this subject from Toby Emmerich, Warner Bros.’ film studio chief, who said that the studio wanted to keep Ben as Batman for as long as possible. “Ben is our Batman. We love him as Batman. We want to keep him in the cowl as long as we can,” he said. A similar message was shared by Matt Reeves, the director of the upcoming Batman movie, who also said that he wants Ben to play this role for as long as possible.

For the moment, there is no official confirmation on this, so it remains unclear if any of these rumors are true.

Ed Sheeran Temporarily Deletes Twitter after Game of Thrones Appearance

It seems that starring on Game of Thrones is not a good experience for everyone. At least it appears that it has not been one for Ed Sheeran. The famous singer decided to temporarily quit Twitter after receiving a lot of criticism for his appearance on the highly successful television series.

Initially, Ed Sheeran gave absolutely no explanation for his decision to quit the social media platform, but it definitely had something to do with his short appearance on Game of Thrones. His starring on the series actually created a mix of criticism and praise on social media. Of course, given these comments, it has been claimed that Ed decided to delete his Twitter to end the criticism.

Sheeran deleted his Twitter less than 24 hours after he appeared on the series. In the show, Ed played the role of a Lannister soldier who offered Arya Stark something to eat. When he was first introduced to the scene, Ed was actually playing a campfire song along with other soldiers.

Ed has not commented on his decision now, but this is not the first time when something like this happens. In fact, Ed had previously given up Twitter because of criticism. The star claimed last year that he closed down his Twitter account because of cyber-bullying. “I can’t read it. I go on it and there’s nothing but people saying mean things,” the famous singer said. “One comment ruins your day. But that’s why I’ve come off it,” he added.

It is yet to see what Ed has to say this time, but one thing is certain: the singer does not like the criticism on social media. He previously claimed that he tries to avoid reading bad things and Ed revealed that he just doesn’t want to read “something and be like, ‘Ugh, well that’s rude.’ I don’t want to choose to do that anymore.”
