'Thor: Love and Thunder' baddie Christian Bale says SCOTUS ruling shows the "superpower" of voting

Walt Disney Pictures Publicity

Christian Bale paused a promotional interview for his upcoming role in Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder Friday afternoon to briefly address the SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe v. Wade.

Bale plays Gorr the God Butcher in the upcoming film, which deals with the question of what makes a hero.

"Just in light of what happened today [with the] Supreme Court and everything. 'What's a true superhero?'" he asked rhetorically.

"We all have a superhero power, and that is voting," Bale said. "And that's incredibly important."

Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder, which also stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Russell Crowe, Tessa Thompson and writer-director Taika Waititi, opens July 8.

Marvel Studios is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

"Rage": Stars react to Roe v. Wade being overturned

Araya Doheny/FilmMagic

(NOTE LANGUAGE) Friday's Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade reverberated through Hollywood, with many stars taking to social media to vent their frustrations.

Here are some of those who posted:


Rachel Zegler: "Why the f*** don't you care about us? why the f*** do you think you have any say over our bodies?"

Rob Reiner: "Don’t despair. Fight back!! Hold the House, add 2 seats to the Senate, kill the filibuster, codify Roe, and add seats to SCOTUS. 2022 will determine it all. VOTE!!!"

Ariana DeBose: "I have nothing nice to say at this moment in time."

Al Franken: "Today’s decision is the culmination of a 50 year project by GOP operatives, religious fundamentalists, billionaire oligarchs, & right-wing media. Work, donate, vote!!! #RoeVsWade #Dobbs

Padma Lakshmi: "People will still get abortions. These procedures won't stop just because Roe v. Wade is overturned. This will only prevent safe, legal abortions from taking place. People who have the money, time, and resources will still find avenues for their procedures. But the most vulnerable of our community? What choices are those individuals, who are mostly BIPOC, left with? This is the catalyst for a public health crisis. The right to decide when to start a family or not is a choice every individual should be able to make on their terms when the time is right for them. This freedom and dignity is something we should all fight to preserve."

Bill Gates: "This is a sad day. Reversing Roe v. Wade is an unjust and unacceptable setback. And it puts women’s lives at risk, especially the most disadvantaged."


Josh Gad: "You don't need 280 characters today. Just one word: Rage"

The Boys' showrunner wants to reunite Jensen Ackles with 'Supernatural' co-stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jared Padalecki

Ackles in "The Boys" -- Amazon Studios

Eric Kripke, the showrunner of the Emmy-nominated Amazon series The Boys, wants to bring back the Winchester boys.

Kripke created the long-running CW show Supernatural, which starred The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the father of Dean and Sam Winchester, played respectively by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

With Ackles currently starring as Soldier Boy on The Boys, Kripke is eager for a Supernatural reunion. "Jeffrey Dean Morgan is a superfan of the show, so he and I are talking," Kripke tells E! News.

"We're trying to figure out something for season 4. Nothing finalized yet, but he and I are chatting and emailing and seeing it we can make it work with his busy schedule. So, stay tuned on that."

As for Padalecki? "I would put Jared on the show in a heartbeat," Kripke says, adding of the Walker, Texas Ranger reboot star, "I would put him on the show in a second."

Stay tuned ...

Meanwhile, The Boys dropped what is promising to be its most controversial episode yet on Friday. Based on a bawdy adventure from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's graphic novel series, the episode centers on the super-powered orgy known as Herogasm.

The BoysInstagram noted of the episode, "Please allow 3 to 5 business days to recover, maybe more."

Amazon Studios countered, "Might need 5 - 7 business days."

Maya Rudolph, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez make for an "odd couple" in Apple TV+'s new comedy series 'Loot'

Apple TV+

The new comedy series Loot kicks off Friday on Apple TV+ and opens with Maya Rudolph's socialite Molly enjoying all the trappings of having a dashing billionaire husband -- until she finds out he's been cheating on her with a much younger woman. 

With an $87 billion divorce settlement in hand, but no direction in her life, Molly gets an unexpected call from Sofia, played by Pose Emmy winner Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, the no-nonsense head of a charitable foundation that Molly doesn't even know she technically runs. 

Sofia needs to make sure the money keeps flowing to various charities -- and that Molly's globe-trotting rebound tour stops embarrassing the nonprofit.

"It's a little bit of a ... fish out of water for Molly, for sure," SNL vet Rudolph tells ABC Audio.

"And I think that ... pairing people together who would never spend any time together just immediately allows you to have endless possibilities of things going wrong, which is always a great place to start for comedy, obviously."

Rodriguez, agrees, contrasting the "free-spirited" Molly to her dedicated character, Sofia, who doesn't have time for Molly's shenanigans -- like giving women at a domestic abuse shelter designer-curated SWAG bags.

"I just like that they're just totally polar opposites," Rodriguez says. "You would never expect for these two to be in the same place together. And yet they are. They're an odd couple, for sure." 

Rudolph jokes, "It's The Odd Couple 2.0."

Rodriguez revealed it was hard to constantly act peeved opposite Rudolph "because she is actually a sweetheart."

"It's a challenge in general to be in front of a legendary icon," she adds, "and you have to play this character that is no B.S. So, yeah, it's hard, but I like the ... challenging."

GoFundMe for jilted Burger King employee tops $46K, including $5K from David Spade

ABC/Lou Rocco

When Kevin Ford went viral earlier in the week for showing off his goodbye gift after 27 years of service to a Las Vegas airport Burger King, it got a lot of attention.

After all, for all his "loyalty...and never missing a day," his SWAG bag was more than a little lacking: It included a movie ticket, a bag of Reeses Pieces, a Starbucks cup and a couple of pens, among other office bric-a-brac.

His daughter Seryna started a GoFundMe for the 54-year-old grandad, expressing he worked tirelessly and managed to raise his family and put four daughters through college thanks to his hard work -- and the internet delivered.

The campaign has topped $46,000 as of late Friday morning -- and to the grateful former employee's surprise, one donor of $5,000 turned out to be David Spade.

For his part, TMZ reports, Ford was shocked to see that the "David Spade" on his list of benefactors was the David Spade from Saturday Night Live and Tommy Boy.

According to a screengrab of Instagram DMs between the two, Ford used the "mind blown" emoji, among other unprintable exultations. "Cannot believe this!!" Ford exclaimed, adding, "I think I might be able to take a day off," to which Spade replied, "Wait until year 30."

Ford then joked, "Damn, Are You One Of My Managers?"

The dedicated worker tells the gossip site that he intends to spend some of the donors' generosity to visit his grandkids in Texas and buy a hybrid car.

Father accuses Ezra Miller of sheltering mother and kids at "unsafe" farm amid weed and weapons

Hawaiʻi Police Department via Getty Images

Another day, another wild accusation about The Flash star Ezra Miller.

According to Rolling Stone, the actor, who identifies as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, is currently staying on his 96-acre property in Stamford, Vermont, with a mother and her three young children.

The father, like the 25-year-old mother, was not identified. However, he reportedly feared the situation is "unsafe." Video provided to Rolling Stone allegedly showed "unattended guns strewn around the home," and that "one of the children -- a one-year-old -- allegedly picked up a loose bullet and put it in her mouth."

The 29-year-old actor is allegedly using marijuana heavily in front of the children, the magazine reports. Miller also is accused of cultivating cannabis on their farm without a license, according to Rolling Stone.

However, the mother of the children tells the magazine that Miller helped her and her kids flee Hilo, Hawaii, and a "violent and abusive" ex -- something the children's father denies.

The Rolling Stone report is the latest in a series of recent accusations and legal entanglements for Miller.

Earlier this month, South Dakota attorney and activist Chase Iron Eyes and his wife, Sara Jumping Eagle, filed court documents alleging that Miller has been "physically and emotionally abusing" their 18-year-old daughter, Tokata Iron Eyes, whom Miller met when she was 12 and Miller was 23. The Fantastic Beasts series star was also accused of "psychologically manipulating, physically intimidating, and endangering the safety and welfare" of the young woman, according to court documents obtained by Entertainment Weekly.

However, in an Instagram post, Tokata denied the claims, insisting in part that her "comrade" Ezra has simply helped her through a difficult time.

Miller was also arrested in Hawaii in March and April and charged, respectively, with disorderly conduct and harassment in one case, and second degree assault in the other.

Denise Richards launches OnlyFans account after daughter Sami Sheen's debut

Pablo Cuadra/WireImage

Denise Richards is following in the footsteps of her daughter, Sami Sheen, and launching an OnlyFans account.

Taking to social media on Thursday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum shared a 15-second clip of herself wearing a white dress and walking from the beach into the water.

"Ready…here we go," she captioned the video, adding #onlyfans. "Link in bio."

In a follow-up Instagram post, the 51-year-old wrote, "It’s summer!!! My favorite time of year. Chatting with all of you on #onlyfans right now. I personally will answer all of your messages."

Subscriptions to Richards' OnlyFans account are currently listed at $25 per month, or $67.50 for a three-month bundle.

Richards' OnlyFans account comes after her 18-year-old daughter, Sami, whom she shares with ex Charlie Sheen, launched her own page earlier this month.

Charlie voiced his disapproval of his daughter's account, telling E! News in a statement, "I do not condone this but since I'm unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative and not sacrifice her integrity."

Richards, on the other hand, commended Sami for her confidence.

"Lots of negative comments on my social this past week. I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has," she wrote in an Instagram post. "And I also can't be judgmental of her choices. I did Wild Things & Playboy, quite frankly her father shouldn't be either."

Austin Butler felt “a responsibility” to get 'Elvis' right

Alon Amir

When Austin Butler signed on to play Elvis Presley in Elvis, the new biopic about the musician's life, he knew it wouldn’t be a walk in the park to step into the King of Rock & Roll’s blue suede shoes.

“I’ve never felt a responsibility like this,” Butler told ABC News. “Anytime you take on somebody who’s actually lived their life, there’s a responsibility. But with Elvis, it’s something I’ve never felt before.”

The film’s director, Baz Luhrmann, echoed his sentiment, saying it was important to both of them that Butler did not do an impersonation of Presley. “Elvis is the most impersonated person in history. We had to have a person,” he said. “Austin really did fuse his spirit with that of Elvis’. He shows the man, not the icon, you know.”

Butler’s performance as Presley tried to combat “all the misconceptions” of those impersonations – the caricatures and the Halloween costumes – that Butler says make people look “up to him almost in a godlike way” and, in turn, take the singer’s “life out of context.”

“I was just so fascinated by stripping all that away,” Butler said.

Elvis hits theaters on June 24, but it premiered at Cannes Film Festival last month – where it was treated to a 10-minute standing ovation during and after the end credits.

“I'm getting to now see people responding to all the work that we did,” Butler said. “And it just feels so good that people are appreciating and getting to see him in a way they haven’t maybe before.”

Four Walls: The 'Always Sunny' guys launch charity whiskey brand

FXX/Patrick McElhenney

Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, the guys behind the hit FX show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, are getting into the celebrity spirits business -- but it's all for a good cause.

The creators of the show centered in a pub have announced the creation of their Four Walls Whiskey collection, a celebration, as McElhenney says, of "the four walls that have held our favorite memories in and kept our troubles out."

Four Walls' two offerings are "a rare Irish Whiskey with premium commemorative packaging for serious whiskey collectors" and "a blended Irish and Straight Pennsylvania Rye offering crafted with bartenders in mind and made to celebrate with fans."

In a video announcement, slightly in character from their Always Sunny roles, Day declares, "Oh! I'm glad we're getting in on the celebrity spirit brand thing. A lot of money in that."

Howerton replies, "But in our case, a lot of money for bars and bartenders."

"Forrrr?" Day replies. "I just want to be clear, we're not going to be making a little tiny bit of the money?"

McElhenney clarifies that 100% of the profits for the brown stuff will be benefitting the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association's charity HARP [Hospitality Assistance Response of Pennsylvania]. The organization has been helping out bars and restaurants that have been hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cast-strength whiskey is aged 15 years to commemorate Always Sunny's 15 years on the air. Limited to 755 bottles, it retails for $999 and features "premium packaging that includes signatures by Glenn, Rob, and Charlie, and a mirrored, engraved box."

The "Bartenders Blend" rye mix sells for $89.95.

Both options have rated well in a blind tasting and are certainly classier than if the guys branded their own rum ham.
