Euphoria Star Sydney Sweeney Says She Barely Earns Enough To Survive

Sydney Sweeney, star of “Euphoria,” admitted that her bank account does not yet afford a break to indulge in the good life. The 24-year-old woman pointed out that while she is undoubtedly not indigent—hello, Miu Miu, Laneige, and Armani cosmetics commercial deals—she just doesn’t make as much money from her day job as some might assume.

“If I wanted to take a six-month break, I don’t have the income to cover that,” the rising sex symbol recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t have someone supporting me, I don’t have anyone I can turn to, to pay my bills or call for help.”

“They don’t pay actors like they used to, and with streamers, you no longer get residuals,” Sweeney explained.

"Euphoria" star Sydney Sweeney says she isn't able to take a long break and has to continuously work.

“The established stars still get paid, but I have to give five percent to my lawyer, 10 percent to my agents, three percent or something like that to my business manager.”

The Euphoria star added: “I have to pay my publicist every month, and that’s more than my mortgage.

“If I just acted, I wouldn’t be able to afford my life in LA. I take deals because I have to.”

She is not paying a mortgage on a humble two-up two-down, as the New York Post notes, but rather a $3 million Los Angeles mansion with a view of a golf course from the front porch.

However, it isn’t in a gated neighborhood like other houses in the region, so admirers can easily drive by and take pictures.

“I couldn’t believe I was even able to buy a house,” she said. “I want to be able to stay there.”

In fairness to the star, she came from a frugal upbringing and explained the tough choices her parents had to make when they moved to LA to pursue her acting career at 13 years old.

“We lived in one room. My mom and I shared a bed and my dad and little brother shared a couch,” she recalled.


Ashton Kutcher Reveals Why He Returned To ‘That ’70s Show’ Spinoff With Mila Kunis

Jackie and Kelso are back! In other words, they’re doing the same thing they did nearly 20 years ago: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are returning to the world of “That ’70s Show.”

In the new Netflix spinoff “That ’90s Show,” the pair who portrayed love interests on the popular 2000s comedy as teenagers before getting married in real life years later, will reprise their roles as Kelso and Jackie.

In order to show their appreciation for how the program altered their lives, Kutcher and Kunis chose to reprise the roles that made them famous.

“Mila and I were contemplating it,” the actor told Variety Monday at the premiere of his new movie, “Vengeance.” “We thought, ‘Listen, we’re only in the position that we’re in because of that show, so let’s just go back and do this.’ We just went back and had fun for a week. It was so random and fun.”

“It was really nostalgic to be back on the set,” Kutcher continued. “It’s all the same folks that made ‘That ’70s Show,’ so it was pretty bizarre.”

The spinoff, which picks up 15 years after the final episode of the series, will feature almost all of the original cast members. Fox broadcast “That ’70s Show” from 2001 until 2006 for eight seasons.

In 2022, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis go to the 94th Academy Awards together.

“That ’90s Show” will follow Leia (Callie Haverda), the daughter of Eric (Topher Grace) and Donna (Laura Prepon), who “bonds with a new generation of Point Place kids under the watchful eye of Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and the stern glare of Red (Kurtwood Smith),” while visiting them for the summer, according to the official synopsis.

“Sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll never dies, it just changes clothes,” the logline reads.

While Danny Masterson, who is awaiting trial on three separate allegations of rape, won’t be a part of the series, other original cast members Wilmer Valderrama and Tommy Chong will.

The new group of young performers, which includes Ashley Aufderheide, Reyn Doi, Maxwell Acee Donovan, Sam Morelos, and Mace Coronel, was praised as “phenomenal” by Kutcher, who also teased that the program is “very humorous.”

Netflix has received 10 episodes of the comedy, although no release date has been set as of yet.

The spinoff will mark Kutcher and Kunis’ first on-screen collaboration since tying the knot in 2012 after years of friendship and on-screen flings.

“Yep, in the show [we kissed], with no feelings whatsoever,” Kunis said on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast back in 2018 about filming “That ’70s Show” with Kutcher. “It’s the weirdest story that nobody believes, but it’s God’s honest truth. There was nothing there, and it was like … whatever.

Ashton Kutcher got married to Demi Moore in 2005 and split up in 2011. Mila Kunis also broke up with her long-term partner Macaulay Culkin. Years later, after bumping into each other at an awards ceremony, the two started dating. Years later, after bumping into each other at an awards ceremony, the two started dating.

She continued, “We would have never been together if we didn’t both go through what we went through in order to be the people that we were when we reconnected.”


Jessica Alba Says Marvel Movies are ‘Still Quite Caucasian’, Calls for Better Representation

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become more diverse in recent years. At a time when white actors predominated the comic book movie genre, actress Jessica Alba played Sue Storm in the 2005 film Fantastic Four and the 2007 blockbuster Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. 

The blockbuster franchise, according to the 41-year-old actress in an interview with Glamour UK, is much too strongly dominated by white performers.

And although it seems like there are more diverse movies in this category now than there used to be, Alba says it’s still “more of the same”.

She said in the interview: “Even if you look at the Marvel movies – that’s the biggest driver of fantasy and what’s happening right now in entertainment because it’s sort of the family think – it’s still quite Caucasian.

“I would say I was one of the few back in the day… And it was before Marvel was sold to Disney, but it’s still quite more of the same.”

Alba went on to say: “It’s a business initiative for people now that they realize how much money they can make. It’s something they care about, which is fine.

“How they get there really doesn’t matter. You’re like, ‘Great. Now you realize there’s a whole group of folks that you just frankly left out of the conversation because you just didn’t even see them. They were there the whole time.'”

“And I guess it’s the people in charge. However they get there, it really genuinely doesn’t matter,” she continued. “I just think more for the younger people who are coming up, who are going to be our future leaders, it’s important for them to see the world on screen, or in stories, in the dreams that we create as entertainers; it reflects the world that they’re in.”

Prior to the early 2000s, Alba has previously discussed how her Mexican American ancestry held her back from landing movie roles.

“They couldn’t figure out my ethnicity,” Alba told PopSugar in 2017. “I would always go out for ‘exotic.’ They were like, ‘You’re not Latin enough to play a Latina, and you’re not Caucasian enough to play the leading lady, so you’re going to be the “exotic” one.’ Whatever that was.”


Christian Wilkins says Everyone is non-binary after slamming critics who mocked his dressing style.

Christian Wilkins has presented his original perspective on the idea of gender. The 27-year-old socialite, who is known for challenging gender stereotypes by donning clothes on the red carpet, expressed his viewpoint last month in an interview with The Star Observer.

When asked on whether he identifies as non-binary, Christian simply replied: ‘I would probably identify all of us as non-binary to be completely honest.’ 

One who does not exclusively identify as a male or a woman is referred to as non-binary.

Christian, a gay man who uses the pronouns he/him, declined to elaborate on his statement, but it is understood that he was referring to the idea that gender is a spectrum rather than a binary.

The blonde also stressed the value of accepting your uniqueness and letting go of your detractors.

‘In this world, there’s only one person that you can count on, and that’s yourself, and if wearing a little pink dress, wearing something sparkly, or wearing pants, or whatever, makes you happy, you should do it because your happiness is actually really what matters in this world,’ he said. 

It comes after the Filthy Rich and Homeless actor defended himself against those who object to him wearing dresses in previous weeks.

‘If you met me and attacked my personality, that would upset me, but if you think I’m wrong for wearing a dress because I have a doodle, you’re an idiot,’ Christian, who is the son of entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins, said earlier this month. 

‘Not only do I think it’s homophobic, but it’s misogynistic. It’s this notion of, “I’m a man and I’m dressing like a woman, and therefore that makes me less.”‘

‘That’s a disgusting notion. It’s 2022, whatever’ he added.

Christian said he feels beautiful in dresses and has been donning them since he was around 10 years old.

‘There’s nothing more beautiful in the world than someone who feels beautiful in an outfit. It just radiates through you,’ he explained.


Warner Bros. Was Sued By Tattoo Artist For Copying Mike Tyson’s Famous Tattoo In Hangover II

S. Victor Whitmill, a tattoo artist, sued Warner Brothers for copyright infringement in connection with the movie The Hangover. Whitmill claimed that the facial tattoo that Ed Helms wore in The Hangover II violated his copyright in the tattoo because it was a replica of the one that Whitmill created for boxing champion Mike Tyson.

S. Victor Whitmill, the tattoo artist who gave Tyson his renowned tribal tattoo, really filed a lawsuit against the entertainment industry back in 2011.

Nearly a month after the Hangover II reached theatres, in June of that year, the lawsuit was resolved.

Whitmill claimed Warner Bros. never contacted him to obtain his consent to use the artwork and that the tattoo Ed Helms’ character received in the movie violated the copyrighted tattoo he had needled into Tyson’s face.

The matter was resolved after an “all-day” mediation, but the contents of the agreement weren’t made public.

The victory, which The Hollywood Reporter exclusively detailed more than ten years ago, spared Warner Bros. the need to digitally remove Stu’s tattoo.

Whitmill’s attorney Geoff Gerber said at the time: “Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute. No other information will be provided.”

Whitmill’s lawyer’s official complaint filing read: “When Mr. Whitmill created the Original Tattoo, Mr. Tyson agreed that Mr. Whitmill would own the artwork and thus, the copyright in the Original Tattoo.

“Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. — without attempting to contact Mr. Whitmill, obtain his permission, or credit his creation — has copied Mr. Whitmill’s Original Tattoo and placed it on the face of another actor … This unauthorized exploitation of the Original Tattoo constitutes copyright infringement.”

Aside from the unfortunate face tattoo, Helms’ character Stu in the alcoholic trilogy had a notoriously difficult time of it, even pulling out his own front tooth with a pair of pliers in the first film.

Helms previously admitted that, although a rusty set of pliers wasn’t the real culprit, he actually had a missing tooth when the movie was being made.

Back in 2009, Helms explained: “It is totally real. I have an implant. An adult tooth never came in and when I was 16, they did a permanent implant.”

He added: “We started to do different tests with prosthetics and blacking it out and nothing worked.

“I wasn’t eager to take out my implant because my mouth is healthy, but I talked to my dentist and he was like, ‘Yeah we can do it!’ My dentist was really into it.”


Linda Evangelista returns to modeling for the first time since her cosmetic procedure left her ‘permanently deformed’

Supermodel Linda Evangelista has announced that she is again back in the modelling business after previously revealing a cosmetic surgery treatment she claimed left her “permanently disfigured,”

The Canadian runway sensation frequently graced the pages of fashion magazines and was recognised as one of the top models of the 1980s and 1990s.

The 57-year-old announced in an Instagram post from last year that she has paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH).

The “fat-freezing” operation, which has received FDA approval, is marketed as a “non-invasive alternative to liposuction.” Sadly, Linda experienced a “rare adverse effect” where her fat cells expanded instead of diminished, the reverse of what the treatment was intended to do.

In any case, the outspoken model’s first modelling gig in years has startled. The task involved a forthcoming Fendi fashion show advertisement.

Over the weekend, Evangelista posted a picture from the protest campaign to Instagram. She was dressed in a grey sweater, three pink caps on her head, stylish brown sunglasses, and gloves. She can be seen holding a few Fendi handbags while turning her back on the camera.

“On September 9 2022 @Fendi will host a special fashion show in New York City to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the #FendiBaguette, designed by @silviaventurinifendi, and two years since @mrkimjones joined the Maison as Artistic Director of Couture and Womenswear,” she captioned the post.

This makes her return to the industry after a six-year hiatus.

In her September 2021 Instagram post, which was captioned, “#TheTruth #MyStory”, she said that her condition had “destroyed my livelihood” and sent her into “a cycle of deep depression”, which has made her become a “recluse”.

“Today I took a big step towards righting a wrong that I have suffered and have kept to myself for over five years,” she began.

“To my followers who have wondered why I have not been working while my peers’ careers have been thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which did the opposite of what it promised.”

Evangelista wrote:

“It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently deformed even after undergoing two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries.I have been left, as the media has described, ‘unrecognizable’.

“I have developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH, a risk of which I was not made aware before I had the procedures. PAH has not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing. In the process, I have become a recluse.”

She concluded by hinting that she is now taking legal action, and that she would like to live a life free from shame.

“With this lawsuit, I am moving forward to rid myself of my shame, and going public with my story. I’m so tired of living this way. I would like to walk out my door with my head held high, despite not looking like myself any longer.”
