Argento added, "He will live in disgrace, shunned by a film community that once embraced him and covered up for his crimes.

Luc Besson Accused of Rape by Actress in France
A young actress who has worked with Luc Besson on two movies has filed a complaint with the police accusing the director of raping her earlier this week, a French news outlet reported Saturday.

The Badass Move Princess Diana Pulled After Finding Out About Charles's Affair

Prince Charles and Princess Diana's 11-year marriage was fraught with scandals, affairs, and, well, the fact that they weren't really all that in love to begin with. But after the birth of Prince Harry in 1984, Diana experienced what she called "some of the happiest years of her life" as a wife and mother - sadly, it didn't last too long. In 1986, Prince Charles rekindled his pre-Diana romance with Camilla Parker Bowles, a relationship that first started back in the early '70s. According to interviews and conversations with friends, Diana never believed that Charles and Camilla had fully broken things off; she even alleged to have found photos of Camilla in Charles's journal during their honeymoon and made the famous statement of there being "three of us" in the marriage, telling Martin Bashir in 1995, "It was a bit crowded."

  • Popsugar
After a wildly successful first season, 13 Reasons Why has a lot to live up to in season two. Not only is the Netflix series venturing away from Jay Asher's beloved novel, but it's also bringing on a handful of new characters. One of those new faces includes actress Anne Winters, who plays Liberty High's head cheerleader and It girl, Chloe.

Donald Glover Is Responsible For One of Shuri's Best Jokes in Black Panther

Donald Glover Is Responsible For One of Shuri's Best Jokes in Black Panther
Black Panther is not only responsible for smashing the box office to smithereens, bringing representation to Marvel's nearly all-white superhero world, and even breaking a historic cinema ban in Saudi Arabia but also for giving us a six-pack from laughing so hard.

Despite the fact it's mainly an action film, Black Panther is packed with jokes, which mostly come courtesy of Princess Shuri. The character, played perfectly by British actress Letitia Wright, is the sarcastic (and insanely smart) little sister of T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), but she doesn't let the fact he's a king or a superhero stop her from getting in a few quips at his expense. As it turns out, one of her best lines was actually written by a fellow member of the McU: Donald Glover.

Glover, who popped up in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and is currently portraying Lando in Solo: A Star Wars Story, teamed up with his brother,

If You're Able to Look at This Michael B. Jordan Picture Without Fainting, Congratulations!
Michael B. Jordan is, without a doubt, on fire. Not only did he happen to star in the highest-grossing superhero film of all time, but the Black Panther actor is literally steaming up the small screen in HBO's Fahrenheit 451, based on Ray Bradbury's 1953 novel. In promotion for the film, which premieres May 19, Michael went sans shirt on the cover of Essence's June issue - and all we can do is throw our hands to the sky and whisper, "Thank you." We are truly, sincerely, not worthy of these photographs.

Oh, and in case you were interested, Michael does an interview, too. In it, he talks about using his platform to be an ally for inclusion and diversity in Hollywood. Back in March, the 31-year-old star announced he would adopt an inclusion rider for his own company, Outlier Society Productions. The clause, highlighted in Frances McDormand's acceptance speech at this year's Oscars,

You'll Want to Rewatch the Passionate Royal Wedding Sermon From Start to Finish
One of our favorite parts of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding was the Most Reverend Michael Curry's powerful sermon. Curry, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, delivered a nearly 14-minute speech that perfectly summed up what love really is, and his words of wisdom are truly sticking with us.

He began by quoting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., reciting, "We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way." Though most of his impassioned speech was prepared ahead of time, he did improvise a few parts, like when he promised to wrap up soon so "we can get you two married," which gave the audience a sweet chuckle.

Portia de Rossi Opens Up to Wife Ellen DeGeneres About Why She Decided to Quit Acting
Portia de Rossi made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday and confirmed that she has quit acting for good. Sitting down with her wife for the honest chat, Portia confessed that she originally made the decision 18 months ago, explaining, "I kind of knew what acting would look like for me for the next 10, 20 years, so I decided to quit and start a business." However, though Shonda Rhimes promptly wrote her character out of Scandal, the folks over at Arrested Development clearly had a harder time letting go!

Portia confirmed that she will, in fact, appear in a number of episodes of the upcoming season five. After that, it really does look like we'll say goodbye to Lindsay Bluth Fünke for good, but her colleagues weren't going to let her go without a celebration.
