Kate Hudson Calls Steven Tyler "Papa" in New Photo of Him Cradling Her Baby Bump — Are They Related?

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is neither Kate Hudson's father — that would be musician Bill Hudson — nor her stepfather figure — that would be Kurt Russell, longtime partner of Kate's mom, Goldie Hawn. So if they're not related, why does the 38-year-old actress keep referring to Steven as "Papa"? A post shared by Kate Hudson (@katehudson) on Apr 16, 2018 at 10:51am Pdt Case in point: When she posted her Monday, April 16 Instagram pic of Steven with his arms around her pregnant belly, Kate wrote, "Baby girl got some good hugs from Papa Tyler this weekend." And in September 2016, Kate posted a selfie of herself with "Papa Steven" after they bumped into one another on a flight.

Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed

Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.

This week’s question: “The Book of Henry” has been assailed by critics. But let’s look beyond this particular reviled new release. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever reviewed?

Alissa Wilkinson (@alissamarie), Vox

It’s unfortunately not even a contest: “God’s Not Dead 2,” which I reviewed for Flavorwire and then wrote about it further for Thrillist. (The first movie is actually far worse, but I didn’t review it.) They’re actually not the worst-made movies I’ve seen, but as a Christian and a film critic, I find them so actively offensive and cynical that it’s somehow even more depressing. I didn’t derive any joy from the process, but it felt important that I write about it.

Amber Heard Opens Up About Domestic Violence in an Emotional PSA
Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp earlier this year, stating in a court filing that the actor had been verbally and physically abusive to her throughout the entirety of their relationship. Now she has recorded a PSA for the GirlGaze Project about domestic violence and the importance of extricating oneself from such a relationship. Heard — who never mentions Depp by name in the emotional video — begins by explaining why so many women have trouble doing so: “When it happens in your home, behind closed doors, with someone you love, it’s not as straightforward. If a stranger did this…it would be a no-brainer.” Watch the full PSA below.

Audit Commission's furphy on film incentive

The National Commission of Audit.s proposal to cease the $20 million international film incentives program is a nonsense.

An initiative of the former Labor Government, the $20 million was a one-off payment to attract offshore production and was never going to be perpetuated by the current Government.

Besides, the money has been spent, or at least committed, to three films. Angelina Jolie.s drama Unbroken is in post-production and will be released by Universal in the Us on December 25 and in Australia on January 8.

The Moon and the Sun, a fantasy adventure starring Pierce Brosnan, William Hurt, Fan Bing Bing and Benjamin Walker, is shooting in Melbourne after locationing in France, directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer, Bratz, Raise Your Voice) .

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter has paid tribute to actor Johnny Lewis following his sudden death on Wednesday, insisting he was a talented guy who simply "lost his way".
