The cameraman asked if Scott “was particularly good” at her job. 

“She was and her husband worked there as well. It was cool,” Teigen said, referring to Scott’s husband Jordan, an Outback cook. “She was wonderful.”

The “Lip Sync Battle” star and foodie ordered a glass of pinot grigio and a list of appetizers that included a Steakhouse Quesadilla and Outback’s famed Bloomin’ Onion. 

“I love Outback,” Teigen told TMZ. “I love Bloomin’ Onion.” 

As for if the $1,000 tip was a one-time thing, Teigen responded, “The mood might strike again.”

McConaughey, who often does charity work with his Just Keep Livin Foundation, worked with 250 volunteers to deliver 4,500 turkeys.

In a live video posted to his Facebook page on Nov. 4, McConaughey surprised a group of women, who called themselves “hot mamas,” at a house in Lawrenceburg. The actor posed for photos with the group, who meet on Saturdays to do arts and crafts projects.

“It’s a sexy man carrying a turkey!” one woman said.

Before the visit, “Entertainment Tonight” reported McConaughey visited Wild Turkey volunteers as a surprise. Video of the visit was posted to the actor’s Facebook page.

“Thanksgiving, gratitude -- we believe in our family that the more you're thankful for, the more that you show gratification, the more that you’re gonna create in your life to be thankful for,” he said. “I think it’s kinda scientific and here's kind of living proof of it right here this morning, so thanks for being out here. 

“Let’s go make some people happy and put some smiles on some faces, deliver some turkeys. There’s some people that are gonna be happy to get ‘em,” he said.

Adam Levine, Behati Prinsloo expecting another baby girl

It will be another girl for “The Voice” coach Adam Levine and his wife, model  Behati Prinsloo.

Levine stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Tuesday and dished about Prinsloo’s pregnancy. The Maroon 5 lead singer gushed about his model wife, calling her a “champion” and saying that it’s hard to tell that she is seven months along.

“No! She does not look like she is,” DeGeneres agreed as photos of a bikini-clad Prinsloo appeared. “Look at that. Seven months pregnant. That’s what I look like now.” 

Levine gushed about his daughter, Dusty Rose -- whom DeGeneres said she named -- saying that the little one is so calm despite her parents being “maniacs.”

The pressure is on for DeGeneres, as Levine said he now expects her to come up with a name for his next child. 

“Do you know if it’s a boy or a girl?” DeGeneres asked. 

“It’s a girl. We are having another girl,” Levine confirmed as the audience cheered.

As for the name, Levine said, “We’re already working on it. It’s going. It’s happening.” 

“It would be really great!” DeGeneres said. 

Levine said that he and Prinsloo have big plans to expand their family over the years. 

“I want a lot. I thrive in chaos,” Levine said. “We love it and (Behati) was an only child. She wants, like, 100 babies, but I don’t know if I can do that,” Levine and Prinsloo welcomed daughter Dusty Rose on Sept. 21, 2016. Almost immediately after bringing their first child into the world, the couple gushed about the possibility of adding more babies to their brood. 

“Family and close friends come over to see Dusty. Behati loves being a mom and can’t wait to eventually expand the family more,” a source told E! News in September 2016.

On Sept. 13, the couple announced they are expecting baby No. 2. Prinsloo shared a bikini selfie on Instagram with her full bump on display. 

“ROUND 2…” she captioned the shot

The couple tied the knot in a 2014 San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, ceremony.

Terry Crews responds when woman’s bank wouldn’t let her put his face on debit card

When Twitter user Darrel Kennedy wanted to change the photo on her debit card to inspire more frugality, she went with Terry Crews’s notoriously penny-pinching character Julius from the UPN/The CW show “Everybody Hates Chris.”

After her bank denied her request, Kennedy decided to take it up with someone with some sway -- Terry Crews himself.

“They rejected my request because they said i (sic) needed written approval from @terrycrews,” Kennedy tweeted, asking her followers to retweet her post or tag the actor.

Crews got word of the tweet and replied, “I approve. Signed, Terry Crews.”

Crews played the infamously cheap dad on the sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris” from 2005 to 2009. In one episode, Crews’s character forced his family members to take wild home remedies instead of seeing a doctor.

For a meme-worthy tip to save money, having Julius printed on your actual card is definitely a step up from carrying his picture in your wallet. Whichever way you prefer seeing the character’s face, the goal is the same: to hold onto your income.

Meryl Streep calls 1979 story about Dustin Hoffman groping incident ‘inaccurate’

Meryl Streep is defending Dustin Hoffman after a 1979 TIME Magazine interview made it’s way around the internet on Monday.

>> Read more trending news

In the old interview, Streep recounted the first time she met her “Kramer vs. Kramer” co-star and said that his bizarre behavior made her think he was a “pig.”

“He came up to me and said, ‘I’m Dustin—burp—Hoffman,’ and he put his hand on my breast. ‘What an obnoxious pig,’ I thought,” Streep reportedly said at the time. She was auditioning for a play he was directing the first time she met him.

Streep’s rep told E! News that the article was not an “accurate rendering of that meeting.”

“There was an offense and it is something for which Dustin apologized. And Meryl accepted that,” Streep’s rep added.

The re-circulation of the article comes just a week after Hoffman was accused of sexually harassing a then-17-year-old intern on the set of the 1985 TV film “Death of a Salesman.”

“One morning I went to his dressing room to take his breakfast order; he looked at me and grinned, taking his time. Then he said, ‘I’ll have a hard-boiled egg … and a soft-boiled clitoris,’” Anna Graham Hunter alleged in an interview for The Hollywood Reporter. “His entourage burst out laughing. I left, speechless. Then I went to the bathroom and cried.”

Hunter said she kept accounts of the alleged harassment in notes written to her sister who was living in London at the time. As for outing the actor now, Hunter said that the years that have gone by have helped her gain a new perspective on his alleged behavior.

“At 49, I understand what Dustin Hoffman did as it fits into the larger pattern of what women experience in Hollywood and everywhere. He was a predator, I was a child, and this was sexual harassment. As to how it fits into my own pattern, I imagine I’ll be figuring that out for years to come,” she wrote.

Hoffman later responded to the allegations saying, “I have the utmost respect for women and feel terrible that anything I might have done could have put her in an uncomfortable situation. I am sorry. It is not reflective of who I am.”

‘Gossip Girl’ actor Ed Westwick responds after actress accuses him of rape

Actress Kristina Cohen accused former “Gossip Girl” actor Ed Westwick of rape in a lengthy Facebook post she shared Monday night.

In the post, Cohen wrote that the stories of other victims of sexual assault and harassment made her come forward with her own story. She wrote that the alleged incident happened three years ago when she was in a “dark time” of her life as she dealt with her mother’s cancer diagnosis.

“I didn’t have the support system or time to process and deal with the aftermath of the rape. I buried my pain and guilt to make space for the onslaught that came after my mom’s death, just three months later,” she wrote.“I’ve grown considerably in the three years since my assault, so to revisit (it) is painful. To dig in and relive this night in order to accurately share the events, feels like a continued violation. My stomach is in knots, scared ... to share this publicly, as even fully reconciling with myself has been a tough process.”

Cohen explained that she was dating an unnamed producer at the time of the alleged assault. She wrote that the two were invited to Westwick’s home, where she met him for the first time.

Cohen wrote that Westwick made a sexual suggestion, and she wanted to leave his home, but the producer didn’t want to make Westwick feel awkward by leaving.

“Ed insisted we stay for dinner. I said I was tired and wanted to leave, trying to get out of what was already an uncomfortable situation,” Cohen wrote.

Cohen claimed that Westwick suggested she retreat to the guest bedroom for a nap and that the producer she was seeing told her they needed to stay for at least another 20 minutes to “smooth everything over.”

“So I went and laid down in the guest room, where I eventually fell asleep. I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me,” Cohen wrote, noting that Westwick had begun to touch her inappropriately without her consent. “I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could, but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to (have sexual intercourse with) me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me,” she wrote.

Cohen said the encounter was a nightmare.

She alleged that the producer made her feel like she was to blame, calling her an “active participant” and said that Westwick would “destroy” her if she came forward with the allegations.

“I now realize the ways in which these men in power prey on women and how this tactic is used so frequently in our industry, and surely, in many others,” Cohen wrote.

Cohen said that she hopes her story will help other victims realize “they are not alone, that they are not to blame, and it is not their fault.”

Westwick took to Twitter with a statement refuting the allegations on Tuesday.

“I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape,” he wrote in the captionless tweet.

This allegation comes as several other big names in Hollywood including Harvery Weinstein and Kevin Spacey have been accused of similar allegations.>> Related: 8 ‘House of Cards’ employees accuse Kevin Spacey of ‘predatory’ conduct

Sia shares nude image of herself before paparazzi can sell it

Singer Sia just proved two can definitely play the game when she shared her own nude image before someone could profit from it.

>> Read more trending news

When she learned that someone was trying to sell a nude paparazzo photo of her, Sia took matters in her own hands by sharing the screenshot on her own on Twitter. 

“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” she posted.

Adding “Everyday is Christmas” is a nod to her upcoming album of the same name, which will hit shelves on Nov. 17.

The photo of the singer was taken from behind, and her full bottom is on display. It appears she was doing a little nude sunbathing on a deck when the photo was snapped.

According to People magazine, this isn’t the first time Sia has put it all out there. In early October, she posed with a bared breast with just a banana emoji giving her a  little cover.

Sia might be willing to bare her body for the camera from time to time, but one thing she typically keeps private is her face. When she performs or appears in public, the “Chandelier” singer uses oversized wigs to hide her face from fans.

In a 2015 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” she opened up about why she hides her face.

“So that I can go to Target and buy a hose if I want to, or [if] I find I am in very need of a restroom and I can’t find one, I could go by the side of the road, and no one would be following me with a camera trying to get ‘the shot,'” she joked.

DeGeneres tried to coax her friend to take off the wig in that appearance, but fans were let down when a dancing reindeer interrupted the special and kept Sia’s identity a secret.

Earlier this year, the singer did step out sans wig and in March, she was spotted at LAX without her trademark wig as she headed to Dubai for a performance.

Actor Corey Feldman details Hollywood pedophilia ring to LAPD

Actor Corey Feldman has reportedly named names in an interview with the Los Angeles Police Department on a pedophilia ring operating in Hollywood.

>> Read more trending news

Feldman, 46, has repeatedly said that he and friend and fellow actor Corey Haim, who died from pneumonia in 2010, were molested by producers and other movie staffers when they were child actors in the 1980s. Feldman has never named his attackers, although last week on the “Dr. Oz” show he did accuse actor and former co-star Jon Grissom of abuse. He also said he was abused by manager Marty Weiss.

Now Feldman has finally gone to the police with his accusations, according to a report by the New York Daily News. The newspaper reported that Feldman said he had “completed a formal sit down interview” with the LAPD and turned over all the information he had on the ring, although police have not confirmed this.

Jesse Jackson accused of sexual harassment by The Root journalist

The Root writer and producer Danielle Young has come forward with sexual harassment allegations against the Rev. Jesse Jackson that she says occurred at a prior employer, a “popular” media company.

In an article titled "Don't Let the Smile Fool You. I'm Cringing on the Inside," Young says a meeting at the previous employer's company on an unspecified date ended with a “keynote speech” by Jackson. After his speech, which she says was about the responsibility of black journalists, she joined her colleagues in line for a photo with Jackson.

“One by one, we stepped up, shared a few words and thank-yous with Jackson, snapped photos and went back to our desks,” she writes. “Simple enough, right?”

But Young alleges that when she went for a photo with Jackson, it wasn’t simple.

She says he gave her a look up and down and “reached out a hand and grabbed my thigh, saying, ‘I like all of that right there!’ and gave my thigh a tight squeeze.”

Young says the encounter was “something that was so casual, I almost didn’t even consider it sexual harassment, even though it was beyond my desire.” She includes a number of photographs of the encounter in her story that she says show how “visibly uncomfortable” she was.

When contacted for the story, Young says a former coworker noticed that Jackson had been “inappropriate with all the women.”

“And I also remember you telling me that he did something more with you,” the coworker reportedly continued. “And then we brushed the [expletive] off and chalked it up to him just being a dirty old man.”

Young says she is coming forward about the alleged thigh grab — something she admits was “barely a blip on anyone’s radar, even my own” — in the interest of speaking out “against men who simply can’t keep their hands to themselves. Because that’s where it starts.”

“My silence gave Jackson permission to continue grabbing at the next pair of thick thighs he liked,” Young says. “I’m hoping that my voice does the opposite.”

She is the second person to come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Jackson. In 2011, Tommy R. Bennett, a former employee of Jackson, filed a formal complaint with the city of Chicago Commission on Human Relations against Jackson and his Rainbow PUSH Coalition organization in Chicago.

Bennett, a gay man, alleged sexual harassment and discrimination because of his sexuality.
