Poor old Ed-ccident prone Sheeran! On Oct. 16, the English singer, 26, posted a photo of his right arm in a cast and his left arm in a sling, captioned, “I’ve had a bit of a bicycle accident,” with The Sun reporting he was hit by a car. It’s not the first time the “Shape of You” singer has ended up in Emergency. In November 2016 he sported a cut face, reportedly caused by Princess Beatrice slicing him during a mock attempt to knight James Blunt with a sword. And for his 25th birthday in Iceland in February 2016, Sheeran slipped into a volcanic hot spring, burning his foot. Add that to a burst eardrum in Spain in 2015 and a 2013 hospital-worthy cut hand at a Nashville karaoke venue,…

taking down a predator

Two weeks ago, if you’d asked most Hollywood insiders to describe Harvey Weinstein, you’d probably get the words “bully” or “blowhard” shot back at you with a laugh. His cartoonish reputation as a big, blustering, high-powered Hollywood studio executive had long been the stuff of legend. “He was romanticised as an old-style movie mogul,” says former New York Observer reporter Rebecca Traister. “That was seen as a good thing.” But the reality of Harvey Weinstein was far, far more disturbing. At a 2000 book party, when Traister asked Weinstein a probing question about the marketing of a movie, Weinstein exploded, calling her a “c--t,” dragging her then-boyfriend Andrew Goldman onto the street in a headlock and yelling, “I’m the f--king mayor of this f--king lawless piece of shit town!” Weinstein “has…

finding strength in numbers: #metoo

What started with a simple idea from a friend of Alyssa Milano’s turned into a social-media movement, as hundreds of thousands of people spoke out under the Twitter hashtag #MeToo to say they had experienced sexual harassment or assault. The campaign, suggested on Oct. 15 by Milano (left), who co-starred with Rose McGowan on Charmed, generated more than half a million tweets in 24 hours, with stars including Lady Gaga, Gabrielle Union (right), Debra Messing, Rosario Dawson and Anna Paquin adding their voices. “I think it’s somewhat of a relief for everybody to speak up,” notes Louisette Geiss, a writer and actress who says Weinstein exposed himself to her. “It’s creating a change; women all over the world who have been harassed in other businesses are stepping forward.” Los Angeles lawyer David Diamond…

good deed

CELEBRITIES DID THEIR BIT BY performing and answering phones at the One Voice: Somos Live! disasterrelief concert and telethon on Oct. 14. The event, in both Los Angeles and Miami, raised money for charities helping victims of hurricanes Maria, Irma and Harvey that left many in the Caribbean, Mexico and southern US without food, water or homes. Performers included Jennifer Lopez and her ex-husband Marc Anthony, who teamed up with Lopez’s boyfriend, former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, to organise the event. “Right when the hurricane hit Puerto Rico, Marc and I got on the phone and started talking about what we could do,” Lopez told WHO. Stars taking part on stage included Stevie Wonder, Gwen Stefani, Chris Martin, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Mary J Blige. Other celebs pitched in by answering…

michael fassbender & alicia vikander island wedding!

FOR THREE YEARS, ACTORS ALICIA Vikander and Michael Fassbender, who met in 2014 on the New Zealand set of The Light Between Oceans, have done their best to keep the details of their relationship under wraps, even politely declining to pash for the Kiss Cam at the 2016 British Academy of Film and Television Awards. But on Oct. 15, the low-key couple shared kisses, smiles, and flashes of new bling on their ring fingers after their weekend wedding in Ibiza, sources confirmed to WHO. Arriving on the Spanish island with friends and family from Paris earlier in the week, Oscar winner Vikander, 29, and two-time nominee Fassbender, 40, spent a day frolicking on the beach on Oct. 13, capped off by a sunset party on a sailboat, a witness told E! News. Then…

benefit gang

CELEBRITIES frocked up for the amfAR gala and auction to support the charity that raises money for AIDS and HIV prevention, research and treatment. Star of the show was Julia Roberts, who was given the Award of Courage for her AIDS charity work. While she joked she was thinking of the event as her “two week- early 50th-birthday party,” she thanked “my beloved husband [Daniel Moder] who’s really the man that taught me what it means to give.” During bidding on a lunch with Roberts and two others, host James Corden, Tom Hanks and Sean Penn said they’d also attend. “Never, ever sit at Julia Roberts’s table while an auction is going on,” said Hanks. “She tells you to buck up the price. Next thing you know you’re having lunch with…
