Star Scoop: Zoe Saldana Is Pregnant with Twins, Jimmy Kimmel’s New Girl, James Franco Brings Broadway to the Big Screen


Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter proved our suspicions true and confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy lead Zoe Saldana is expecting her first child with husband Marco Perego. The reveal must not have fared well with the THR cover star, and the post has since been removed. We still can’t deny her glow… or the urge to plea for an invite to her baby shower. Congrats, Zoe! [E! Online]

Update: Baby makes… four. Saldana is not just pregnant—sources tell E! Online that she is expecting twins! Her newfound parenthood will be coupled with shooting Star Trek 3 and the new Avatar sequels. “Back to business,” as Bey would say.

Say it with us now: awwww! Jimmy Kimmel shared pics of his 12-day-old newborn June on his namesake show Monday night. He told the crowd that he and his wife were doing fine and that he managed not to scream during her delivery. More cuteness, please! [ABC News]

We’re used to seeing James Franco on the silver screen, and thanks to Broadway hit Of Mice and Men, we got accustomed to his skills on the stage. Now, the National Theater’s NT Live is merging the two. Of Mice and Men, in which Franco stars alongside Chris O’Dowd and Leighton Meester, will film a private performance of the show to be released in select theaters. [Variety]

Save the date. We’re going On the Run with Jay Z and Beyoncé—again—September 20. HBO teased its exclusive concert special with the power pair via Instagram, revealing that the filmed version of the joint concert will air a week after its September 12 and 13 live date. [Huffington Post]

Speaking of IG drops and Bey… the vinyl version of her self-titled visual album is coming soon. [Instagram]

American Horror Story fans shouldn’t expect Freak Show to fall on the “campy” side of things. Fox CEO John Landgraf told press at the 2014 Television Critics Association summer press tour that season four of the spooky anthology series will be more chilling than season three. “Some years it’s going to be big and bright and brash and campy the way Coven is,” he said. “Other years it’s going to be dark and brooding, like Asylum was. I guess I would put Freak Show half-way in between the two. It’s got a little bit more humor and a little bit more camp, but it’s got a brooding period feel to it also.” [International Business Times]

A$AP Rocky may want to learn to keep his hands to himself. The Rihanna collaborator and GQ style star is facing a lawsuit from a (former) fan who says he slapped her during last September’s Made in America Festival in Philadelphia. The plaintiff is seeking $75,000 in damages, and judging from past complaints against the Harlem-bred emcee, he may have to cash out. [Rolling Stone]
