GEORGE CLOONEY: Told Matt Damon About Twins Weeks Ago
George and Amal Clooney have confirmed that they’re expecting twins, but one of their famous friends knew weeks ago.
Matt Damon said George revealed his secret a long time ago and broke the “12-week rule.” Damon told Entertainment Tonight, “I was working with him last fall and he pulled me aside. And I was like, ‘How far along is she?’ And he goes, ‘Eight weeks.’”
Damon has three kids. He knows it’s safest to wait until the second trimester to make any announcements. Even longer because Amal is having twins! But George was just too excited about being a dad to wait.

TOM HIDDLESTON: Taylor Swift Romance Was “Real”
Tom Hiddleston has opened up about his relationship with Taylor Swift.
The British actor and the pop singer began dating last summer, but many people thought the romance was a hoax. In an interview with GQ, Tom says, “Of course it was real. You have to fight for love. You can’t live in fear of what people might say. You know, you have to be true to yourself.”
Hiddleston cleared up another mystery, this one about that “I Love T.S.” tank top he sported at Swift’s Fourth of July party in Rhode Island. He explains, “The truth is, it was the Fourth of July and a public holiday and we were playing a game and I slipped and hurt my back. And I wanted to protect the graze from the sun and said, ‘Does anyone have a T-shirt?’ And one of her friends said, ‘I’ve got this.’ And we all laughed about it. It was a joke. Among friends.”
Though they split after a few months, Hiddleston calls Swift an “incredible” and “amazing woman.”

MELISSA McCARTHY: Donald Trump “Uncomfortable” With Sean Spicer Skit
Sean Spicer may hear Donald Trump‘s famous “You’re fired!” catchphrase soon — and Melissa McCarthy‘s epic impression could be the reason why.
According to Politico, the SNL sketch lampooning the White House Press Secretary “didn’t go over well” with the president, mainly because Spicer was portrayed by a woman. Sources say that “the unflattering send-up by a female comedian was not considered helpful for Spicer’s longevity in the grueling, high-profile job.”
A top Trump donor added, “Trump doesn’t like his people to look weak.”
Politico says Trump’s Twitter silence concerning the sketch “was seen internally as a sign of how uncomfortable it made the White House feel. Sources said the caricature of Spicer by McCarthy struck a nerve and was upsetting to the press secretary and to his allies, who immediately saw how damaging it could be in Trump world.”
Donald’s arch-nemesis, Rosie O’Donnell, wants to get in on the action. She tweeted Monday that she’d like to play chief strategist Steve Bannon on SNL, opposite Alec Baldwin‘s Trump.
