Will Smith calls his marriage ‘the most difficult, grueling, excruciating thing’

'Concussion' Special Screening
Above is a photo of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith at the premiere of his new movie, Concussion, for which he’s getting Oscar buzz. Jada wore this insane see-through sequin Zuhair Murad gown that Will is admiring. She’s about to rip the skirt off so it won’t trip her up when she does a double axle. This isn’t the first time that Jada has worn an obvious “look at me” outfit to one of Will’s events. Just last week she got her boobs out at the Latin Grammys, where Will performed, in yet another sheer and silver sequin dress.

Will’s face kind of says it all here, he has the best expressions.

Will has been fielding questions about his marriage, and he and Jada have put a lot out there about their relationship so that’s to be expected. When asked for the “secret” to his 20 year marriage Will said it’s hard work, basically.

“We’ve been married 20 years and we’ve been asking ourselves [what’s the secret to marriage] and really at the end of the day it’s just not quitting,” the 47-year-old actor said of Pinkett Smith, who he first started dating in 1995 and then married two years later. “You can’t expect it to be easy, it’s like our marriage was the most difficult, grueling, excruciating thing that we have ever taken on in our lives. And you know were just not quitters and by the same token we’re not apathetic. We’re not going to sit there and let it be painful, we’re going to keep working.”

“If there is a secret I would say is that we never went into working our relationship. We only ever worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously.”

[From ET Online]

I could shade Will for this because a lot of people think long term relationships should be “easy,” but when you have two strong-willed highly motivated people like this I don’t doubt that they clash. At least he’s being honest, although he doesn’t sound too positive about it. I don’t really understand how he could say that they never worked on their relationship together and only “worked on ourselves individually, and then presented ourselves to one another better than we were previously.” Maybe that works for them, or doesn’t work depending on what is going on behind the scenes, but what about learning to communicate and work things out? It sounds like they just avoid each other for a while and get back together when they’ve had enough alone time. That’s pretty much the impression I’ve had of their relationship.

Will has several more interviews promoting Concussion, based on the true story of a forensic doctor who fought the NFL to bring awareness to the epidemic of traumatic brain injury among football players. It’s out on Christmas. GQ has a cute video interview in which he describes his worst 80s fashion fail, a half-shirt on Fresh Prince, and also talks about one of his son’s fashion moments, where Jaden wore a batman suit to a girl’s prom. Will explained that Jada talked their son into at least wearing a tie with it, “so I blame his mother.

Spoilers for Django Unchained
Oh and a lot of outlets are talking about Will revealing that he turned down the lead in Django Unchained because he wanted to make it more of a love story than a revenge tale and Tarantino wasn’t on board. Will said this during The Hollywood Reporter’s Actors Roundtable discussion, but Forbes points out that this is actually the second explanation he’s given for not taking that role. Back when promoting After Earth (ha), Will said he didn’t do Django because Christoph Waltz’s bounty hunter character got to be the hero and kill the bad guy, not his intended slavecharacter, who was ultimately played by Jamie Foxx. It just sounds like he tried to tell Tarantino how to make his movie and Tarantino wasn’t having it. I can’t imagine Will Smith in that role anyway, Jamie Foxx was so impressive.

Johnny Depp loves Amber Heard because she’s ‘literate’ & a ‘blues aficionado’


On Monday, we discussed the photos from this weekend’s LA premiere of The Danish Girl. Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander were there, of course, as was supporting player Amber Heard. By all accounts, Amber’s part is small and while she’s arguably the most gossip-worthy person in the cast, it’s not like the studio is building an awards campaign around her performance. Amber is just hustling for the sake of hustling, which is why she once again trotted out her husband, Johnny “Scarfy” Depp, to yet another premiere. Many of you commented about how Depp looked like ten kinds of hell at the premiere (truth), but did you also know he was drunk and slurring his words? It’s true. I was watching this video at E! News and he was messy. Not fall-down-drunk messy, but you could definitely tell that he had been drinking and “maintaining” for a while. Here’s a clip:

As for what Depp actually says in the interview… for what it’s worth, he seems genuinely proud of Amber and he seems to like The Danish Girl as a film. He told E!: “It’s a very beautiful movie and I’m very proud of her. She worked very hard…It looks like where she belongs. I always felt like I was supposed to be in a different time and I kind of felt that way about her the first time I saw her. So it looks right and perfect for her.”

He was also asked how he knew Amber was The One (eyeroll). Scarfy’s answer is just as eye-rolly too. The first thing that came to mind? Amber knows the blues: “We connect on a lot of levels but the first things that really got me was she’s an aficionado of the blues. I would play a song, some old obscure blues song and she knew what it was.” He also likes that she reads: “She’s very very literate. She’s a voracious reader as I have been so we connected on that as well. And she’s kind of brilliant. I’m a lucky man.”

Here’s my question: do you think Amber is embarrassed? Like, she thought she scored the white whale, the impossible “get” when she started up with Depp (likely when he was still with Vanessa Paradis). And now she’s stuck with a bloated, drunk mess who slurs his way through red carpet interviews.

Kim Kardashian’s baby is breech & she’d ‘rather not’ get a C-section this time


A few days ago, I was reading about how Kim Kardashian has been craving beignets and how Kris Jenner has basically told her that she’s getting fat during her pregnancy. I was going to write about it at some point, but then this popped up. Kim has given her fans yet another update on her terrible, miserable, heinous pregnancy. As it turns out, Baby Boy Kardashian-West is breech and Kim is worried about the delivery. Just know: this story made my stomach (and other parts) CLENCH. I seriously don’t know how so many of you ladies do this.

As Kim Kardashian West enters her 36th week of pregnancy, the reality star is opening up about the fact that her baby is breech — and all the ways she’s trying to get him to turn.

In a new blog post shared on her website and app Tuesday — which she admitted she wrote “while up at 4 A.M., a little anxious” for her delivery — Kardashian West says she’s “surrendered to the placenta issues” but that her latest concern is that her baby is currently in the wrong position for childbirth: His head is still facing upwards, and he was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. Though breech babies are usually delivered via C-section, Kardashian West, 35, has been exploring other options.

“As I lay awake late at night, researching, I’ve learned that you actually can deliver a breech baby and I feel fortunate that my doctor Paul Crane is one of the few doctors that still does this. They just don’t even teach it anymore,” she wrote, adding that Dr. Crane was her mom Kris Jenner‘s doctor and actually delivered Kardashian West herself.

Kardashian West, who is already mom to daughter North, 2, also mentioned she’d watched a documentary called “Heads Up” on breech delivery.

“I found it very interesting that I do have this option to deliver a breech baby as opposed to just jumping into a C-section,” she wrote. “Obviously, if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section — but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not. I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech babies] — so, lucky me! It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or [my sister] Kourtney [Kardashian] for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both — with nine total pregnancies! — have never experienced one of these crazy things.”

Though Kardashian West said her baby might be “just too big at this point” to turn (he’s over 7 pounds!), she has been trying “anything to still turn the baby,” including “intensive chiropractic work.”

“I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes,” she explained. “I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started accupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!”

Kardashian West also added that she will be trying “Version or ECV, which is a procedure to turn the baby from a breech position.”

“You should Google this and watch it because it looks so painful and scary and has to be done in the hospital,” she said. “So please wish me luck and pray the baby turns! This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!”

[From People]

I believe her about the baby being breech. I do NOT believe her claims that she would love to deliver the baby vaginally and not via C-section. I’m sorry, I just don’t. Maybe that’s my own fear of all things labor-related, but if I found out that there was even one small problem with the potential birth plan, I’d be like, “Oh, too bad… go ahead and schedule the C-section.” I suspect Kim is the same way. I mean, why even bother pretending that she’s going deliver the old-fashioned way? And why not? I hate the pressure on women to have these horrific birth stories. I mean, do what’s right for you, but if I was facing what Kim’s facing – a breech position and placenta accreta and the strong possibility of an emergency hysterectomy – why not just schedule the damn C-section?

Kylie Jenner: I’m Still Dating Tyga, Get Over It!

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to get all the hot goss.

Kylie Jenner taped an appearance for DeGeneres’ show on November 24th, which will air next Monday, November 30th.

At the request of DeGeneres, Kylie revealed that she and Tyga are indeed together.  Or “hanging out.” Netflix and hang? I don’t know.

.”No, honestly, people have it all wrong, Jenner said

“What is it? Straighten it out,” DeGeneres insisted. 

“Well,” Jenner said as the audience egged her on.  “We’re not broken up.”

“We just … honestly. We became best friends before anything happened, so I think that’s awesome and we’re just like, I don’t know, hanging out. Living life,” Jenner says.

“What does that mean, hanging out?” DeGeneres asked

Jenner was coy and vague with her response.

“That’s it,” Jenner said, though she did clarify that she and Tyga are “still together.”

“Didn’t he buy you a car or something?” DeGeneres asked.

Oh yes indeed!  Tyga gave Jenner a $ 320,000 Ferrari for her 18th birthday this summer.

“I know, Jenner said.  “I drove it here.”

Cheeky girl!

A source tells People how the couple got back together.  

Basically, she’s a teenager who missed her boyfriend.

“She took him back after he begged for her forgiveness,” the source said.

“He claimed that everything was misinterpreted and a huge misunderstanding.”

THG Presents: The 10 Biggest Turkeys of 2015!

Happy Thanksgiving, readers, from all of us at THG to you and yours.

What would this quintessential, traditional, uniquely American holiday be without family, food, football and appreciation for the things we hold dearest?

Spencer Pratt is a Turkey

Who will win the 9th Annual Spencer Pratt Thanksgiving Turkey Award!?

In the case of The Hollywood Gossip, on this twenty-sixth day of November, Two Thousand Fifteen, that means turkeys, in more ways than one.

Below, we’re paying tribute to some of the celebrities we’ve had the honor, the pleasure, and the burden of covering here over the past 10.87 months.

We’re talking serious turkeys. Legit bird brains up in hurrr.

So who ruffled feathers with antics that left us shaking our heads, hanging our heads in shame, and/or laughing our heads off at the same time?

Without further ado, here are our Top 10 Turkeys of 2014 …

10. Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett (tie). These two are something else. Even in an era where shameless reality TV stars are a dime a dozen.

9. Ben Carson and Jeb Bush (tie). The tryptophan of presidential candidates, these two dudes are probably boring relatives to sleep as we speak.

8. Donald Trump. Higher energy, for sure, but even more fowl.

7(a). Justin Bieber. It’s still hard to believe that this former baby-faced global teen heart throb has officially morphed into the globe’s biggest douche.

Entertaining, yet still kind of horribly depressing. For us all.

7(b). Scott Disick. Justin’s most elite rival for the D-bag title.

Admittedly, we used to worship the wild man and the comic relief he brought to Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the celebrity gossip world.

Mofo needs to pull it together for his kids though. Lord.

6. Florida Man. If you see a thoroughly absurd news headline you swear must be from The Onion but is somehow real, #FloridaMan was likely involved.

5. Teresa and Joe Giudice. Yes, the system won by sentencing both to prison. Yet they remain larger than life and just as – if not more – ridiculous.

4. All the stars of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2. Incredibly for a franchise that’s been around this long, 2015 might be the cast’s nuttiest on record.

We’re talking nuttier than Aunt Edna’s fruitcake, especially lately. Perhaps it’s time for a break from having babies. Or just being Leah and Farrah.

3. Charlie Sheen. We wish the HIV-positive star well, we truly do, but it’s hard to imagine ruffling more feathers than he has with his dubious antics.

2. Tyga. Not sure what’s worse, dating a teenager or somehow blowing it and getting dumped AFTER she turns 18 and becomes rich and famous.

1. Josh Duggar. Comment rendered unnecessary.
