Celeb in 5: Sunday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ video nearly had another Legally Blonde cameo.

If you have yet to watch the cinematic and musical masterpiece that is Ariana Grande’s music video ‘Thank U, Next,’ then we would recommend you put a pin in reading any further, and hop, skip and jump your internet browser to this very important content.

The music clip pays homage to other cinematic greats such as Mean Girls, Suddenly 30, Bring It On, Legally Blonde, and Kris Jenner (she’s not a movie, but we’ve got to mention her somehow) and all done to the poppy tunes of Grande’s latest hit.

However, while we got to see our favourite manicurist Palette Bonafonté (played by Jennifer Coolidge) make an appearance, there was another fellow Legally Blonde alum, Matthew Davis – the man behind Elle Woods’ snobby ex, Warner Huntington III – who sadly missed out on a feature.

Speaking to EW, the director of Thank U, Next, Hannah Lux Davis, said they tried to get Davis on-board, but he was busy filming.

“We tried to get the real Warner from Legally Blonde, but he wasn’t available,” she said.

“He was shooting in Atlanta. We were all really bummed! We wanted to get him, we reached out, and he was down, but he just wasn’t available.”

From what we've gathered Davis is currently starring in The Vampire Diaries spin-off, Legacies and was probably filming for this big important TV show... but still.

Priorities.

2. Margot Robbie shares just how awkward it was filming THAT Wolf of Wall Street sex scene.

There's one scene in the 2013, Martin Scorsese directed film The Wolf of Wall Street that viewers will remember Margot Robbie for.

The actress is playing Naomi, the wife of criminal stockbroker, Jordan Belfort (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), and she's sitting on the floor of her child's nursery. She's wearing a magenta dress and maroon heels while she teases DiCaprio's character, and says, "Mummy is just so sick and tired of wearing panties.”

While Robbie has no difficulty conveying the steaminess of that scene, the reality was less sexy.

Speaking to Porter Magazine, the 28-year-old shared what it was actually like on set.

"It doesn't come across when you're watching the movie, but in reality we're in a tiny bedroom with 30 crew crammed in," she said, adding in this uncomfortable detail, "All men."

"And for 17 hours I'm pretending to be touching myself. It's just a very weird thing and you have to bury the embarrassment and absurdity, really deep, and fully commit."

And that's exactly what the Aussie actress did - for 17 hours.

3. The joke from Dolly Parton that made Jimmy Fallon collapse with laughter.


Ahh, d*ck jokes, they're never not funny, right?

Well, proving that he is merely a human like the rest of us, Jimmy Fallon, as it transpires, is a fan of them too.

...And in addition to that, country music legend Dolly Parton is a teller of them. (This story just keeps getting better and better).

Dolly you saucy minx you.

Appearing on a recent episode of The Tonight Show to talk about Dumplin’, the upcoming musical comedy starring Jennifer Aniston for which Dolly has written the soundtrack, she shared a d*ck joke so crude and so hilarious, Jimmy was forced to crawl under his desk in hysterics.

The joke involved her husband's peen, no less, and, well, we'll let you watch for yourselves:

Ahh Dolly, we didn't think we could love you any more than we already did.

4. Um. Apparently Meghan Markle might return to acting.

Hmm.

There's a lot of gossip floating around about our beloved Duchess of Sussex at the moment, but while most of it has been, well, nasty, this rumour is one we can get behind.

According to a report by The Sun, there's a teeny tiny chance Meghan Markle could return to our screens to star in a movie.

Huh?

...Is she allowed to do that?

The question remains unanswered, BUT, her former showbiz agent went as far as to say she's 'sure' she'll make a movie again.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Gina Nelthorpe-Cowne said“I’m sure she’ll make a movie again … I really do think that."

Gina reportedly compared Meghan to Grace Kelly, who married Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Kelly returned to film after she married into the royal family, causing controversy and reported issues with her husband, who apparently forbade her from accepting the lead in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 film Marnie.

Gina said: “If Meghan wants to make a movie again, she will.”

And we WILL see it several times.
