Glee’s Amber Riley Doesn’t ‘Give a S—t About This Lea Michele Thing,’ Says Focus on Black Lives Matter Issues Instead

Amber Riley is opening up about her stance on the Lea Michele drama that stemmed from her tweet following George Floyd‘s murder.

During an Instagram Live, the 34-year-old actress, who played Mercedes in Glee, revealed that Lea actually reached out to her following Samantha Ware calling her out for her actions on the set.

It was the first time Amber and Lea talked in over two years.

“I don’t give a s***, [about this],” Amber said. “People are out here dying and being murdered by police…I wish her well, I hope she has an amazing pregnancy, I hope that she has grown…”

Right now, Amber wants everyone to focus on Black Lives Matter, and it’s what we should be doing.

Several of Lea‘s co-stars from Glee and Spring Awakening have also spoken out about the horrible treatment they received from the actress.

Just recently, screenwriter producer, and director Akiva Goldsman revealed that Colin was once set to star opposite Jude Law in a Batman vs. Superman movie, in the early 2000 era. However, the movie was never made or moved forward.

“I wrote on […] this version of Batman v Superman [around 2001 or 2002]— when Colin Farrell was cast as Batman and Jude Law was cast as Superman and Wolfgang Petersen was directing — we were in prep and it was the darkest thing you’ve ever seen,” Akiva shared with Den of Geek.

Akiva continued, revealing the dark plot of the film, “It started with Alfred’s funeral and Bruce has fallen in love and renounced being Batman, the Joker kills his wife, and then you discover it was all a lie. Just that the love itself was constructed by the Joker to break [Bruce].”

“It was a time where you would be able to get these sort of stories together in script form but they couldn’t quite land in the world. Somehow, the expectations of the object — whether they be audience or corporate or directorial — it wasn’t landing quite in the way I think we imagined when we put them on the page.”

Now, Colin will be starring as Penguin in the upcoming The Batman. Here’s what he shared about that project…

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are showing their support for Black Lives Matter.

The 47-year-old actor/director and the 32-year-old actress attended the protest on Tuesday (June 2) in Venice, Calif.

The new couple joined fellow protestors to denounce the demolition of the First Baptist Church of Venice. The church was built in 1910 and has been a landmark building witin the African American community.

In February 2017, the church was sold to a private holding company, who plans on remodel it, according to LA Curbed.

“Ben wants to continue to be a model for his children. They talk about these important issues,” a friend of Ben‘s shared with People. Ben shares three kids with his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner: daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11; and son Samuel, 8.

A source recently opened up about how Ana is a “great influence” on Ben. She has even been spending time with his kids so that they can get to know her.

Kristen Bell Says She's Raising Her Daughters To Be Anti-Racists; Doesn't Care About Their Sexual Preferences

Kristen Bell Says She's Raising Her Daughters To Be Anti-Racists; Doesn't Care About Their Sexual Preferences

Kristen Bell is opening up about her hopes for her daughters, Delta and Lincoln, as they grow up and one thing she doesn’t care about is what their sexual choices are going to be.

Speaking with Channel Q in a new interview, the 39-year-old actress revealed that she really wouldn’t mind if either of them came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

“I know that I don’t care what my girls grow up to be in their career, what their sexual choices are going to be, what their love choices are going to be,” Kristen shared. “I just want to love them because we have one ride on this planet and what is the friggin’ point of spending it hating?”

She added, “I know in my bones that human beings are human beings. And that love is love, and love is never something you challenge, and that you’ve got to look for sameness if you’re to have any happiness in your life. So why would I care who loves who? That’s not my business.”

Kristen also revealed that her children will not grow up as racists and that she and husband Dax Shepard are teaching their daughters to be “morally-compassed women”.

“I will raise anti-racists. My husband and I are very opinionated; we talk a lot. Our kids are a nightmare,” she says. “They’re a nightmare because they will tell you your opinion. We constantly joke about the fact that we’re raising two girls that they’re going to be a nightmare for 18 years, but God bless when we send them into the world, they are going to be formidable, opinionated, kind, morally-compassed women, and I’m so grateful for that.”

Just recently, Kristen opened up about how she and Dax‘s co-parenting styles have changed during the pandemic.
