After British tabloid published blurry photos of the 30-year-old art dealer allegedly kissing a mystery woman during a night out in London early Friday morning, Schnabel is clearing the air, explaining that it was an “innocent situation.”
“The claims that have been made are a misinterpretation of an entirely innocent situation,” Schnabel said in a statement to People. “There is nothing more to this than I was simply saying goodnight to a family friend and we went on our separate ways.
A source also tells People that there is »

Reality TV seems so spontaneous that it’s hard to believe how much work goes into making it. But for the DPs and camera operators tasked with capturing the action and the drama on the fly, the genre is one of the most demanding in the business.
“It can be busy, it can be hectic and it can be crazy,” says Shaun Newton, a camera operator on MTV’s “Are You the One?” which wrapped its fifth season in March.
“Twelve-hour days are typical for us,” Newton adds. “But it can be rewarding, and it’s a really cool job. »

Even celebrities get pimples—Olivia Munn included. At the ProactivMD pop-up shop in NYC, the 36-year-old actress promoted the launch of the brand's acne-fighting Essentials System while sharing her own trials with annoying blemishes. Like everyone else in Hollywood, the Ocean's Eight star has tried cortisone shots, a steroid injection that reduces inflammation and flattens out cystic acne in as fast as a few hours. "Actually, there a lot of actors who I know…a lot of the guys that I'll work with, they'll say, 'You don't get the cortisone shot?' I'm like, 'How do you know about that?'" Olivia told E! News. "The only problem is that it can »
Colin Trevorrow got quite a promotion after releasing his first feature film, the sci-fi indie Safety Not Guaranteed. The director was plucked out of Sundance and dropped into the studio system, tasked with helming the reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World. But how does he follow up directing one of the highest grossing films of all time? By stepping away from dinosaurs -- Trevorrow wrote but will not direct the sequel -- and returning to his roots with The Book of Henry, a $10 million movie about a single mom (Naomi Watts) parenting a genius son. After that? Trevorrow returns to the big leagues for Star Wars: Episode IX. For the moment, though, he's focusing on The Book of Henry, which is part coming-of-age, part family drama, part tearjerker, part thriller, part revenge fantasy...
"I'm fully aware this is going to be a polarizing movie," Trevorrow told Et by phone on the morning of the L.A »
Sarah Jessica Parker: It’s such an interesting idea to take on a part that people think they know. What I learned about Ruth Madoff was everybody thought they knew her. It’s another complexity to playing a real person and must have been wonderfully challenging.
Michelle Pfeiffer: It was really daunting, honestly. It wasn’t until I committed to it that it occurred to me that I was playing a real person, and it was the first time that I had ever done that. And somebody who had already been through so much tragedy and was somewhere in the world, trying to heal. I knew this was probably the last thing in the world she would want. Of course I thought, “Can I get out of this?” I »

Scott Pelley will leave his post as the anchor of “CBS Evening News,” departing the network’s flagship newscast without a ready replacement as he returns to full-time duty at “60 Minutes,” according to a person familiar with the situation.
CBS News declined to comment on the situation, which appears to have caught the network by surprise. Pelley is currently on assignment for the venerable Sunday newsmagazine, but had his office packed in his absence, this person said, in full view of staffers. Among the furnishings in the anchor’s suite are photographs of CBS greats like Edward R. Murrow and a giant painting of a sailboat, commissioned by his wife, Jane. Pelley is a sailing aficionado, but gave up the hobby when he added “Evening News” duties to the job he already had at “60 Minutes,” where he has been a presence since 2004. He was able to get back on the water after a few years of juggling »

How do you know when the breakup is real? When someone finally moves out. This time it's Adrian Peterson, whose Minnesota house is officially up for sale, TMZ Sports has learned. The 5-bed, 4-bath home -- which Peterson bought for $665k in 2007 -- is located in Eden Prairie, just minutes from the Vikings headquarters and practice facility. AP listed the house at $695k earlier this week (hey, $30k goes a long way) ... and being that »

Years ago, Chris Pratt went in for a commercial audition that didn’t go so well. “I introduced myself and he looked up at me and said, ‘Do you think you’re attractive?’” Pratt recalls. “I said, ‘I don’t know.’ He said, ‘Thank you.’ And that was it.”
Pratt can laugh now, as “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World” have turned him into one of the world’s most bankable action stars and sex symbols. And through it all, Pratt still manages to keep his reputation as one of the nicest guys in the business.
“I had good parents that raised me right,” he says, when asked how he keeps a clear head in the business. “And maybe it had something to do with the fact I’m 37 and moved here when I was 20, and in those 17 years saw the benefits and cost of being an a—— play »

Warning: contains spoilers for Line Of Duty series one, two, three and four (until episode four). And some wild speculation.
“How do you know when an executive officer is telling lies? His lips move.” So said Si Ted Hastings reporting back after lunching with Acc Hilton in Line Of Duty series four episode one. It was a characteristically wry comment from Hastings, a character who brooks no truck with bent coppers and PR-manipulators like Hilton. Was it, though, more than that? Was Ted calling Hilton a liar a crucial clue as to what’s really »

It’s set in Victorian Britain – and has more black characters than all the Austens and Downtons put together. Will Lady Macbeth end period drama’s whitewashing of history?
In the musty, ever-expanding wardrobe department that is British period drama, Lady Macbeth stands out like a Pvc minidress. Adapted from a 19th‑century Russian novel (and nothing to do with Shakespeare), the film is stripped-back costume drama, with minimal dialogue, music and furniture, and none of the pomp and politeness the genre usually entails. Its heroine, Katherine, wears fetching frocks, admittedly, but having been sold to a Northumberland bachelor along with a piece of land, she refuses to accept her plight. Instead this spirited ingenue (memorably played by Florence Pugh) schemes, sleeps and ultimately murders her way out of the patriarchal bodice. It is more Coen brothers thriller than Jane Austen romance.
But there is something else striking about Lady Macbeth: Katherine’s maid, »

Today I begin a new series that combines my fondness for film with the joy I have of being a parent. Like most geek dads or dads in general I am eager to share the things I have a passion for with my son. Growing up I can remember my dad doing the same. As a proud Air Force veteran with a father who made his living working for the Rail Road my dad grew up with his own passions and hobbies. Some of my greatest memories as a child are the times I spent seeing my dad gushing at train museums, getting lost in amazement at air shows, or simply try to gather as much information as possible about World War II. Now as I am closing in on the two year mark of being a dad I am beginning to brainstorm on what movies are must sees for my son. »

We chat with the director of ‘Dearest Sister’ and ‘Chanthaly’.Psst, I’m here to tell you what happens when you hold a sneeze in. It isn’t good.
Welcome to the fifth episode of the Shallow Pocket Project, a series where Film School Rejects and the folks at In The Mouth of Dorkness team up to chat with independent filmmakers about working outside the system on a budget.

No Sex On The Good Ship Lollipop, part 3
From our last installment…
The Los Angeles neighborhood of Westwood is home to The University of Southern California, better known as U.C.L.A. It’s a trendy area filled with upscale shops and expensive restaurants.
I’ve never been a fan of Westwood U.C.L.A or trendy, expensive restaurants. I doubt if I ever will be. But because God gets a kick out of such things my new Viacom offices were in Westwood, the reference library I was compelled to use was at U.C.La, and a trendy, expensive restaurant was where I was on my way to have lunch with Stan Lee.
Together the three may have saved my ass.

The role of an eccentric dad in Toni Erdmann has persuaded the Hollywood heavyweight to make his first movie since 2010. Which of his retired peers are also due a comeback?
So it turns out that Jack Nicholson might un-retire himself and return to the big screen with a Us remake of the recent German hit Toni Erdmann. Before he stopped working in 2010 – after the toothless James Brooks flop How Do You Know – Jack was offering one interesting performance per decade, down from a tally of about one every nine months in the 1970s. But perhaps Erdmann – an eccentric weirdo who creates a bewigged alter ego to try to reconnect with his daughter – is a meaty enough role to rescue his acting talent, now long marooned in lukewarm romantic dramas.

Do the work. We heard that a lot in this episode, and it not only means something to the folks on the show.
This show demands that the audience to do the work as well, since it's so damned hard to follow at times!
At the beginning of Legion Season 1 Episode 2, we see David being taken by boat to the well hidden, idyllic Summerland camp, where Melanie Bird and her crew attempt to fix David.
The tone of this one is much different than the wild, visually stunning Legion Season 1 Episode 1 premiere, but it's just as trippy in it's own way.
Things move slower, and this episode has a more dream-like quality: less frenetic, at least at the beginning.
The exposition is helpful since Melanie lays out what the deal is in a pretty straightforward manner.

Toni Erdmann: Jack Nicholson will star opposite Kristen Wiig in a new version of German comedy Toni Erdmann. The Academy Award-nominated original follows a father who struggles to reconnect with his busy adult daughter. Reportedly, Nicholson saw the movie and enjoyed it so much that he suggested an English-language remake starring himself. It will be his first big-screen role since How Do You Know in 2010 (above). [Variety] World War Z 2: Last year, we heard that Brad Pitt wanted David Fincher (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, above) to direct the sequel to zombie epic World War Z. The project was just pulled from its planned theatrical release by Paramount, but Fincher is still "very creatively interested in directing the movie," according to one...
