George Clooney: “I will help my wounded Laglio”
The severe storms have devastated many places in Europe in recent days and weeks. Several houses and streets on Lake Como were destroyed by three days of continuous rain – even the Villa Oleandra of George Clooney, 60, was not spared. The debris blocked the front door, the debris even reached a balcony on the first floor. Meanwhile, Clooney, his wife Amal and twins Ella and Alexander, 4, sought shelter in the house, and they have been on holiday in their adopted Italian home of Laglio for over a month.
And so it is a nice gesture that the Hollywood star and honorary citizen of the place together with Laglio’s mayor Roberto Pozzi, 68, booted through the village on Wednesday (28 July 2021) and looked at the damage himself. But above all, he encouraged the citizens – and promised his help. “The city is strong, it will react. It is an extremely robust city,” the 60-year-old told the Italian newspaper “Viv Milano”. However, he also admitted: “It’s worse than I thought. There will be a lot of work, it will take millions of dollars, but this city is strong, it will react and come back better than before.” Clooney also promised, “I will help my wounded Laglio.”

Rebel Wilson lost his due to the desire to have children
Rebel Wilson, 41, made arguably the most drastic transformation in Hollywood last year. The actress relied on a healthy diet and sports and lost around 34 kilograms thanks to her new lifestyle. The motivation for the sudden change, however, was not only her health, but an intimate desire for a child.
“When I learned about fertility, the doctor said, ‘Well, their chances are much higher if they were a little healthier,'” the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star said in an Instagram live video on Wednesday, July 27, 2021. At first, the doctor’s comment was a bit of a shock for the actress: “I was honestly a bit offended. I found that even though I was a little fatter, I was pretty healthy.” But she took the advice to heart. “So that’s how it started. If I lost some excess weight, my chances of freezing my eggs and having better quality eggs would be better.”
Fred Durst causes a stir with Instagram selfie
Whoops, what does Fred Durst, 50, look like? Is he really? That’s what some fans may have thought of the latest Instagram photo of the US rapper. The frontman of the nu-metal band “Limp Bizkit” first deleted all pictures of his social media account and then posted a rare selfie of himself. And that splits his 294,000 followers into two camps. A user makes the sight really “ready”. Some others even like Fred Durst’s new look.
He now wears a grey Lemmy Kilmister memory bee. But above all, his full silver hair causes frowns. A good 20 years ago, at his career highlight with hits like “Rollin'”, the rapper already wore a New York Yankees cap to cover his light hair – his trademark at the time. If you take a closer look, a glue is drawne strip off the head. A hint that Fred is wearing a wig. Maybe he’s trying out new props? In the meantime, the frontman no longer only raps on big stages, but is also active as a writer and director in the film business.

Matt Damon is “so happy” about the Bennifer reunion
Matt Damon, 50, gives his blessing to the newly blossomed relationship between his buddy Ben Affleck, 48, and Jennifer Lopez, 52. The Hollywood star raves about the unexpected love reunion and assures how “happy” he is for his best friend and the singer. “I’m just so happy for him. He’s the best,” Damon told Extra on Monday, July 26, 2021, stressing, “He deserves every happiness in the world. I’m happy for both.”
It’s the first time Damon has explicitly and downright euphorically commented on his longtime boyfriend’s refreshed romance with his celebrity ex-girlfriend. After the first rumors were made in the spring of 2021 by photos of dates of the two stars, Damon held back with comments. “I love them both,” the Oscar winner assured rather vaguely at the time and played the ignorant: “I hope it’s true. That would be great.”
Meanwhile, Ben and Jennifer make no secret of their newly sparked love. Currently, the two spend a few days in St. Tropez. Jennifer now shares her passionate kisses herself on social media.

Britney Spears: Court relents! She is allowed to drive again
Britney Spears, 39, is finally back at the wheel – and in two ways. After a judge agreed to her request to hire her own lawyer Mathew Rosengart following the resignation of a court-appointed lawyer, the tide seems to be turning for the pop icon. The singer is finally allowed to drive alone again. “Britney is very happy that she is now allowed to drive as part of the guardianship,” a source close to the star told People.
Britney Spears is currently trying in court to have her father Jamie Spears, 69, strip her guardianship. On Monday (July 26, 2021), her lawyer filed a corresponding application, as reported by CNN, among others. Previous attempts to obtain a replacement of her father have so far failed. In the proceedings, Britney had personally taken a stand and testified that she had been denied her own medical decisions under legal guardianship, among other things. She had to take medication against her will. In addition, she was forced to use contraception so as not to get pregnant again. Britney’s revelations have sparked a wave of solidarity among fans and other US star. A strong support that apparently gives Britney wings, as the insider reports: “She is thrilled and more than grateful for all the help she is getting right now.”

Joshua Jackson speaks for the first time about his little “delight”
Joshua Jackson, 43, has simply not been able to get out of the beam for almost three months. The Hollywood star and British actress Jodie Turner-Smith, 34, have been parents to little Janie since April and their world currently revolves around their sweet daughter. “It’s wonderful,” enthuses the happy dad on the “Jess Cagle Show” in the program of the American radio station “SiriusXMs”. “It’s amazing. My first [Tochter], of course, and she’s a little delight every day.”
Joshua is a father for the first timerden and bubbles accordingly with happiness – and amazement. “It’s just an amazing thing where all the clichés are true. I mean, all those who have ever said to you, ‘Oh, you’re never going to experience a love like this,’ are right,” he says, describing his experience as a new father.” And, ‘You think you’re in love with her the first time you see her, but you have no idea how intense it gets.’ This is absolutely true.”
The miracle of a new life and the exciting phase of getting to know each other will have many more adventures in store for Joshua and Jodie. The “Dawson’s Creek” star can’t wait to show his daughter series and movies he’s starred in. “I’m very curious to see how she reacts to Dad in front of the camera, so at first. I mean, it’s going to take many, many years, but if she ever watches Mighty Ducks, for example, she sees me as a little boy. I don’t know how she will react when she experiences her father so rejuvenated.” Exciting years lie ahead of Joshua Jackson and his Janie. Hopefully, the two will always be accompanied by the radiance and magic of their early days.
Will the daughter of Alec and Hilaria Baldwin soon start a film career?
Hollywood star Alec Baldwin, 63, and his wife, yoga expert Hilaria Baldwin, 37, are nursing the skills of their seven children. Just recently, the actor and voice actor revealed that his daughter Carmen, 7, wants to become an actress, singer, dancer, model, magician and lawyer.
Now Baldwin is posting a photo of his daughter on Instagram. Carmen looks shyly into the camera. “I want to make a film with her,” Alec writes about the picture of his sugar-sweet daughter.
The fans react very differently to the photo of daughter Carmen. “She’s absolutely beautiful,” and “What a beauty. I can’t believe how big it has become,” the subscribers comment enthusiastically. But also worried comments can be found under the photo. “Please let them have a childhood […]” writes a follower. ” Please protect them from the business,” another subscriber worries.
