It's been more than a decade since Hollywood's golden couple parted ways, and yet the public is still absolutely fascinated by the dynamics of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's relationship.

Indeed, when news broke that Brad and his second wife, Angelina Jolie, decided to part ways last year, the internet was awash with memes suggesting that Jennifer Aniston was positively celebrating the news.

And while the former Friends star, who married Justin Theroux in 2015, has undoubtedly moved on with her life, recent reports suggest that the heartbreak born of her divorce still runs deep.

According to In Touch Weekly, Brad decided to reach out to Jennifer in recent days in an effort to apologise for any hurt caused during or after their marriage, and it sounds like Jennifer had a hard time dealing with the conversation.

"It was the most intimate conversation Brad and Jen have ever had," a source told the US publication.

And, unsurprisingly, 48-year-old Jen, who never made any secret of the upset she felt enduring such a high-profile break-up, struggled to keep her composure during the exchange.

"Jen was overcome with emotion," the source continued. "All the hurt feelings and resentment she'd suppressed for years came flooding to the surface, and she broke down in tears."

In addition to apologising to Jennifer for being an 'absentee husband' during their marriage between 2000 and 2004, Brad reportedly 'made amends for leaving her for Angelina'.

So, last night P!nk was crowned the proud winner of the 2017 Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards.

After taking to the stage to receive the acclaimed accolade, the artist decided to shape her acceptance speech around a conversation she shared with her daughter recently.

In a revealing speech, the F*cking Perfect singer explained that her six-year-old daughter had called herself the 'ugliest girl I know'.

"I look like a boy with long hair," Willow added at the time.

Stunned by both her daughter's candour and lack of self-belief, P!nk decided to use world-famous artists to teach her daughter that refusing to follow the crowd when it comes to a gender-specific appearance is something to celebrate.

"I went home and I made a power point presentation for her. And, in that presentation, were androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth."

"These are artists like Michael Jackson, David bowie, Freddie Mercury, Annie Lennox, Prince, Janis Joplin, and George Michael, Elton John — so many artists," she told a visibly emotional audience.

P!nk then used her own experience in the music industry to remind her daughter that she refused to succumb to criticism over her image.

"I said to her, “Do you see me growing my hair?” She said, “No mama.” I said, “Do you see me changing my body?” “No, mama.” “Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?” “No, mama."

And then the kicker.

“Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?” “Yes, mama.” P!nk said as applause rang out through the crowd.

P!nk's speech has, unsurprisingly, had Twitter users in a heap, as they went online and paid tribute to the the singer's heartfelt tibute to her daughter.

Ellen De Generes, who presented the singer with the award, took to Twitter in the aftermath, writing: "Congratulations on your Vanguard Award. From now on I’m gonna spell my name El!en. I love u."

Oh, and in case you missed it, here it is…

It's been 20 years since Ellen DeGeneres made the decision to come out as gay, and while she was lauded in some circles for her courage at the time, the fall-out from the announcement sent the much-loved TV presenter into a severe depression.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Ellen, who used her then sitcom as a platform for her announcement, revealed that the months that followed her admission were some of the toughest of her life.

"I moved out of L.A., went into a severe depression, started seeing a therapist and had to go on antidepressants for the first time in my life," the 59-year-old explained.

"The bullying I endured in Hollywood after I came out made up for the lack of it during my childhood," she added.

In the year that followed Ellen's announcement in April 1997, her show was cancelled which understandably wreaked havoc on both her personal and professional life.

"It was scary and lonely. All I’d known for 30 years was work, and all of a sudden I had nothing,” she admits.

And it wasn't just fear that Ellen experienced during this time, but a deep sense of injustice at the reaction her announcement garnered from the public.

"I was mad. It didn’t feel fair – I was the same person everyone had always known," she argued.

Thankfully, the Louisiana native made a valiant attempt to turn her life around, and explains that she sought solace in meditation, exercise and writing, saying: "Eventually I started meditating, working out and writing again, and I slowly started to climb out of it."

The woman described by Ellen in the interview is a far cry from the confident, upbeat and insanely popular presenter she is today.

Happily married and the face of one of the best-loved chat shows in the States, Ellen insists: "I can’t believe I came back from that point. I can’t believe where my life is now.”

After living the vast majority of her life as a Scientologist, popular actress, Leah Remini, left the controversial church in 2013.

Following this decision, which has made countless headlines over the course of the last four years, Leah has dedicated a large portion of her life to speaking out against the so-called religion.

From presenting and producing documentary series, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, to penning an autobiography detailing her time in the church, the 40-year-old star has been more than candid about her experiences.

And with many high-profile names still affiliated with the religion, it's no surprise that the King of Queens actress is often grilled on the effect her departure has had on previous relationships.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Leah revealed that her former friend and current Scientologist, Elisabeth Moss, is forbidden from speaking to her on account of the organisation's doctrines.

"Elisabeth believes that she can't talk to me," Leah said. "There's a thing in Scientology called 'acceptable truth.' It means you only say what's acceptable to the public.”

"Moss believes that I'm an antisocial personality, because I've spoken out against Scientology," she added. "So she isn't allowed to talk to me.“

Leah, who became part of the organisation at the age of eight, insists she understands the predicament The Handmaid's Tale star finds herself in, adding: “And me knowing that, I wouldn't put her in the awkward position."

While Leah understands Elisabeth's compulsion to adhere to the organisation's doctrines, the actress refuses to pussyfoot around her impression of her former church.

“I don't hold anything against Elisabeth Moss other than she's continuing to support a group that is abusive and destroying families," Leah continued. "That's for her to learn, just as I needed to learn it."

Elisabeth refuses to discuss her fate during interviews, aside from saying she has benefited hugely from its teachings.

As countless members of the entertainment industry came to terms with the passing of Hollywood icon, Sam Shepard, this week, former co-star, Matthew McConaughey, only learned of the actor's demise during a red carpet appearance.

While doing press for his latest film The Dark Tower, Matthew was asked for a few words on the actor he starred alongside in Mud, and appeared shellshocked to hear that the 73-year-old had died that day.

"Today was a sad day with the passing of Sam Shepard," the reporter began. "You guys worked together on Mud..."

Looking like the reporter's words had only just registered with him, Matthew interruped: "What? Sam Shepard moved on?"

Pressing his hand to his forehead, he continued: "Gosh damn it. From what?"

Taking a moment to compose himself, Matthew paid tribute to the 73-year-old actor in footage which has been trending online since yesterday.

"I didn’t tell anybody," said Charlize Theron when reflecting on the night her mother killed her father in self-defence on their family farm in Johannesburg.

Speaking recently to radio DJ, Howard Stern, the Oscar-winning actress explained that the incident, which took place in August 1991, was an extremely difficult situation to accept, let alone explain to others.

“I just pretended like it didn’t happen.  I didn’t want to tell anybody," she said.

"Whenever anybody asked me, I said my dad died in a car accident. Who wants to tell that story? Nobody wants to tell that story.”

Charlize was 16-years-old when her father, who was an alcoholic, physically attacked her mother and threatened Charlize's safety.

Responding to the threat, Charlize's mother shot and killed her husband in a move which was later ruled to have been self-defence, and did not result in any legal charges.

"I have an incredible mother," the Monster star told Howard. "She’s a huge inspiration in my life."

"She’s never really had therapy," Charlize continued. "Her philosophy was ‘This is horrible. Acknowledge that this is horrible. Now make a choice. Will this define you? Are you going to sink or are you going to swim?’ That was it."

Charlize, now 41-years-old, explained that her childhood was marred hugely by the uncertainty which often accompanies life with an alcoholic parent.

Recalling her formative years, she remembered: "Not knowing how my day was going to go and all of it dependent on somebody else and whether he was not going to drink or drink.”

Honing in on that night in August 1991, Charlize insisted that neither she nor her mother would allow the horror to define them.

"I think both of us have dealt with that night really well. I think both of us still have to deal with the life that we had –  and that’s what people don’t really realise. It’s not just about what happened one night."

Shia LaBeouf has taken to social media in the aftermath of his arrest at the weekend in an effort to apologise for his actions.

The Transformers star, who was arrested for drunkenness, disorderly conduct and obstruction in Georgia, claimed at the time that he had been arrested for 'being white'.

The actor, whose behaviour was captured on film, can be seen focussing his attention on a black police officer, saying: "You're going to hell, straight to hell, bro."

Commenting on his behaviour, Shia took to Twitter last night and acknowledged the severity of the incident.

"I am deeply ashamed of my behaviour and make no excuses for it," he began in a post which has been liked 25,000 times.

"I don't know if these statements are too frequent, or not shared often enough, but I am certain that my actions warrant a very sincere apology to the arresting officers, and I am grateful for their restraint."

"The severity of my behaviour is not lost on me," he continued.

"My outright disrespect for authority is problematic to say the least, and completely destructive to say the worst. It is a new low."

"A low I hope is a bottom. I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps towards securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes."

"No one is perfect we all make mistakes Shia, just get help and get better," responded one follower.

"I hope the best for you. Being broken, and humble is the absolute best place to be (though painful) I hope you find your way," added another.

Shia's altercation with the police took place in the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.

Lorde's second album has just dropped, but unfortunately for the singer, the press and public are currently more interested in remarks she made about her friendship with Taylor Swift.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the New Zealand-native attempted to explain the dynamic of her relationship with the Out of the Woods singer, but she didn't exactly choose her words carefully.

Referring to the fact that Taylor's high-profile status makes standard BFF activities a little difficult, Lorde made an ill-advised comparison to autoimmune conditions.

"It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies," she surmised in a particularly odd analogy.

"There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do," she continued. "There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship. It’s like having a friend with an autoimmune disease."

And Twitter is unsurprisingly far from impressed with the comparison.

Taking to social media to berate the singer for her 'insensitive' comments, members of the public wasted no time highlighting the incongruity of the singer's questionable comparison.
 

 

 

Following the backlash, Lorde took to Twitter to both apologise and clarify her remarks with Twitter users who demanded Lorde acknowledge the insensitivity of her comments.

"Didn't mention Taylor, but regardless, I f*cked up and that was really insensitive. I'm sorry," she wrote in response to one person's outrage.

Hmmm…

According to emerging reports, Simon Cowell is in the process of organising a charity record to pay tribute to those affected by the Grenfell Tower tragedy this week.

The music mogul took to Twitter in the aftermath of Wednesday's blaze and expressed his sympathies over the incident which has, thus far, claimed the lives of 17 people.

"I am watching the footage of the Grenfell Tower fire in London. Heartbreaking," he wrote in a tweet last night.

In a move which has garnered considerable support, Simon went on to write: "We hope to confirm a record tomorrow which will raise some money for the many people affected by this tragedy. Making calls tonight."

While it is not yet clear which artists will feature on the charity record, Simon is adamant that anyone in a position to help should do so.

Speaking to Good Morning Britain hosts, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, he said; "For all of us living in the vicinity, we have the ability to do something. I just thought what do you do? First of all you can raise some money and that’s important."

“Secondly, what I hope will happen is that it will send a message to those involved that there’s an awful lot of people who care very much about what you’re going through.”

Acknowledging his global status, he added: “For me in my position not to do something would be appalling. It sent chills through me. I do genuinely believe this will make a difference.”

Stars including Adele, Rita Ora and Lily Allen have made trips to the scene of Wednesday's blaze in an effort to comfort members of the community.

Last month, Lena Dunham was forced to call Us Weekly out on their coverage of her weight loss.

The magazine ran a feature on the star and used her recent weight loss as a platform to provide so-called diet tips.

And Lena, unsurprisingly, wasted no time highlighting the fact that numerous medical conditions were actually responsible for her weight loss, and therefore not something any woman should aspire towards.

In a similar vein this week, the Girls creator took to Instagram to share a nude photo of herself alongside a caption which illustrates the progress the actress has made in relation to her own self-worth and body image.

"Just wanted to share that one of the reasons @eatingboys has inspired me so much is because of the way she mixes her humor and sexuality," Lena began.

"I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn't lovable by others- its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes," she wrote.

"I performed the insult so no one else could," she added. "I don't regret any of it- that's my art and that was my truth."

However, it sounds like the star's perspective has changed somewhat, and her medical history has gone a long way towards contributing to it.

"Now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people's perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh and laying out like a Suicide Girl circa 2004. Love it all."

If you thought Liam Gallagher's apparent disdain for his brother, Noel, might have diluted somewhat upon the emergence of reports that Noel had donated royalties to victims of Manchester's recent terror attack, you'd be mistaken.

While appearing on Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2 this morning, the former Oasis frontman seemed as determined as ever to fan the flames of controversy that surrounded the Mancunian siblings.

Leaving the dissolution of the world-famous band firmly at Noel's feet, Liam silenced any rumours of a reunion.

"Oasis, that’s done mate,” he told Chris. “That’s done and has been done for a long, long time."

"Regardless of what happened over the weekend or whatever – Noel Gallagher doesn’t want it. Full stop. He’s quite happy doing his stuff. He doesn’t want to have to entertain me because he knows I won’t stand for his stuff."

For more than two decades, the brothers have made headlines due to their tempestuous relationship which has led many to question the authenticity of their supposed feud.

Raising this particular theory with the singer, Chris was met with a resounding no, with Liam saying: "A lot of people think that man, but I wouldn’t put my mum through that."

"It is the real deal. We’re not fond of each other. He’s the middle child and I came along and just spoiled the party."

And if there was any question as to whether an Oasis reunion might be in the works, Liam told the public that his brother's attitude to the industry and the public has confirmed it's a no-hoper.

"He wants to surround himself with little yes men that he can hire and fire whenever he wants, but he’s not getting that with me," Liam said.

"It doesn’t matter about me digging him out or underlining the lack of empathy and sympathy that he has for people in Manchester," he added. "That’s got nothing to do with it. Oasis is done."

Well, that's us told.
