Natalie Portman was paid three times less than co-star Ashton Kutcher for the 2011 rom-com No Strings Attached. Natalie made the surprising revelation in her February cover story for Marie Claire U.K. She said: "I wasn't as p***ed as I should have been. I mean, we get paid a lot, so it's hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy." Now Natalie, who is pregnant with her second child, says the gender gap is consistent problem in Hollywood: "Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar. In Hollywood, we are making 30 cents to the dollar."
Amber Heard filed new court docs in her divorce with Johnny Depp claiming he's failed to pay the $7 million amount that the couple agreed upon. She says Johnny has not fulfilled his duties in the divorce settlement, but he says she's just making an attempt to stay relevant.
Last week, reports surfaced that Amber was attempting to rearrange her original agreement with Johnny to ask for more money.
His lawyer, Laura Wasser, quickly described the move as a "blatant attempt to extend her fifteen minutes of fame.”
Kim Kardashian's Paris chauffeur was one of 17 people detained in connection with an armed robbery that took place during fashion week last year.

The company insists neither it nor the driver had any connection to the robbery.
Ben Affleck opened up about being a "ladies' man" on Tuesday's episode of Ellen. And by “ladies’ man” I mean a man surrounded by ladies. Talking about his preteen daughter Violet he said, "I hear a lot about the romantic adventures of Disney characters who are on the Disney channel, and we go to Taylor Swift concerts. And that's my life," Ben said--not that he's complaining. "Taylor Swift is great, by the way," he added. "She's a great role model." Despite gushing over T-Swift, Ben found it hard to name three of her songs in a game of "5 Second Rule," guessing, "Uh... 1989? 'I Still Love You?' The John Mayer thing?" As for Garner, he said, "[My kids] have the world's greatest mom."
Like a lot of couples, George and Amal Clooney often disagree when it comes to tipping. He likes to make it rain after a good meal, while she's a lot tighter with the purse strings. But George has figured out a way around her penny pinching.
As you may know, George owns a high-end tequila called Casamingos, along with Cindy Crawford's husband. So he always ends his meals by purchasing a premium bottle at full price . . . which is around $450.
Then he autographs the bottle and gives it to the waiter.
Madonna has graced the cover of the 150th anniversary issue of Harper's Bazaar, where she compared Donald Trump winning the election to a bad breakup. In the latest issue of the magazine, the singer explained her stance, saying, "On election night I was sitting at a table with my agent, who is also one of my very best friends, and we were truly praying. It was just like watching a horror show. I went to sleep, and since that night, I wake up every morning and it’s like when you break up with somebody who has really broken your heart."
She continued, "You wake up and for a second you’re just you, and then you go, ‘Oh, the person I love more than anything has just broken my heart, and I’m devastated and I’m broken and I have nothing. I’m lost.' That’s how I feel every morning. I wake up and I go, ‘Wait a second. Donald Trump is the president. It’s not a bad dream. It really happened.’ It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare."
Madge switched gears and spoke on being oppressed by the music industry. She said, "I know a lot of people would go, 'Oh, that's ridiculous for you to say that. You're a successful, white, wealthy pop star,' but I've had the sh*t kicked out of me for my entire career, and a large part of that is because I'm female and also because I refuse to live a conventional life. I've created a very unconventional family. I have lovers who are three decades younger than me. This makes people very uncomfortable. I feel like everything I do makes people feel really uncomfortable."
Harper's Bazaar's 150th anniversary issue hits newsstands on January 17th.
Katy Perry has revealed that she is releasing a shoe line next month. She says it’s been a longtime dream of hers and that she didn’t want to just slap her name on something, she really wanted to get it right. She says her line will be feminine and fun and at a lower price point so it is easily accessible.
Solange Knowles is on the cover of the latest Interview, and in the magazine she's interviewed by quite the guest reporter: her sister, Beyoncé. In a breezy Q&A, Solange outs herself as a huge Real Housewives of Atlanta fan, saying the show leaves her "in stitches the whole time" and that "it's so brilliant because it's the woman that was represented in my childhood in Houston." Beyoncé also razzes her sister for totally freaking out while meeting her idol, Nas, and the siblings agree that their dad reminds them a lot of Master P. (Incidentally, both men contribute guest vocals to Solange's critically acclaimed album A Seat at the Table.) They're also both huge fans of the late singer Selena.
