But when Dianna unexpectedly befriends Shelly, the assassin finds herself in with the cool crowd, protecting her old nemesis against another hit crew hired to kill them both.

Gal Gadot's 'Hedy Lamarr' Series Ordered By Apple TV+

Gal Gadot's 'Hedy Lamarr' Series Ordered By Apple TV+

Gal Gadot will be playing the iconic Hollywood glamour girl Hedy Lamarr in the upcoming series Hedy Lamarr, which was just acquired by Apple TV+.

The eight-episode limited series will be written and executive produced by Golden Globe Award-winner Sarah Treem, who previously created The Affair.

Here’s more about the series: “Hailed as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world,’ Hedy Lamarr was first exalted and iconized, then destroyed and eventually forgotten by American audiences, all the while keeping her brilliant mind active through a series of inventions, one of which became the basis for the spread spectrum technology we use today. The series will follow the incredible life-story of Hollywood glamour girl, spanning 30 years from Hedy’s daring escape from pre-war Vienna; to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood; to her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War. An epic tale of an immigrant woman both ahead of her time and very much victim to it.”

Check out Gal‘s recent feature for Vogue, in which she taught Hebrew and how to properly pronounce her name.

Taylor Swift Fans Are Mad at Burger King for This Joke

Taylor Swift Fans Are Mad at Burger King for This Joke

Some Swifties are not taking too kindly to Burger King’s sense of humor!

Taylor Swift‘s fans are reacting to a shady comment made by the popular fast food chain’s Twitter account on Thursday (May 28).

PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Taylor Swift

It happened when someone asked Burger King what their favorite song is by the 1989 singer, to which they responded: “the one about her ex.” It has since been deleted, although the screenshots quickly spread around the Internet.

Fans began trending the hashtag #BurgerKingIsOverParty, with some joking about the tweet and finding it funny, while others seriously taking issue and calling their response “sexist.” Other Twitter users then joined the party, with some calling out the brand and others celebrating Burger King’s joke. People also called out the trending party for happening at all amid more pressing world events.

To remedy the situation, Burger King later made a reference: “let’s shake it off. celebrate #BurgerKingIsOverParty with the $3 shake + fries deal in the app 😉,” they wrote.

Last year, Taylor shut down this sexist question about turning 30. See what she said…

Chris Evans Explains Why He Almost Turned Down Captain America Role

Chris Evans Explains Why He Almost Turned Down Captain America Role

Chris Evans is definitely most known for his work as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he says almost turned down the role.

The 38-year-old actor had worked with Marvel in the past when he played Johnny Storm/Human Torch in two Fantastic Four movies in 2005 and 2007.

Chris was asked to do a screen test for Steve Rogers in the first Captain America movie and he turned down the opportunity several times because he wasn’t sure he was ready to be pushed into the spotlight with a high-profile like that one.

“My suffering would be my own,” Chris told THR.

Marvel kept pursuing him for the role and eventually offered him the job without even doing a screen test. Chris shared the same agent as Robert Downey Jr. and they had a conversation that led him to signing on for the project.

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made, and I really owe that to [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige for being persistent and helping me avoid making a giant mistake,” Chris said. “To be honest, all the things that I was fearing never really came to fruition.”

Dakota Johnson is making some choices.

The 30-year-old Fifty Shades actress appeared in the latest episode of Comedy Central’s Stir Crazy with Josh Horowitz on Thursday (May 28).

During the episode, Dakota discussed her quarantine experience, took her best guess at what day it is, and showed off her stick-and-poke “I love you” tattoo, as well as playing a game of “Would You Rather” with Josh.

At one point, she was asked if she’d rather be in an erotic book club with Jamie Dornan, or his Fifty Shades character, Christian Grey.

“Probably Jamie…he’s a lot funnier than Christian Grey,” she admitted.

“He’s a little one-note,” Josh added.

“Sadly,” Dakota agreed.

She also talked about directing a Coldplay music video and played a game of charades.

Dakota recently opened up about growing up with grandmother Tippi Hedren. See what she said…
