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

1. Please enjoy this video of Chris Hemsworth working out like a… wombat.

Chris Hemsworth has secured himself as one of the most-loved Aussies, nay, people, in the world right now.

Because honestly, what is there not to love? Not only is he very attractive, nice, the king of wholesome dad vibes and oh, Thor, but he’s also funny.

And judging by the latest footage the world is fawning over, he brings a little humour to his workout routines, too.

(Seriously, how can people actually even talk while they’re working out?)

In the sweaty vid, Chris translates a series of different exercises called out by his trainer, Luke Zocchi, into Australian animals with similar muscle movements, including a wombat, platypus, kangaroo, koala and… goanna ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

It’s… great, especially the part where his trainer calls out: “Let’s go roo boy!”

Behold:

This has officially made us tired.

2. Um. Jessica Simpson needs your help with her extremely swollen… foot.

Sometimes, we regret to admit, Dr Google doesn’t have the answer for everything.

But if there’s one thing the internet is great for, it’s asking strangers for home remedies to cure unusual… ailments.

Like giant, red swollen pregnancy feet.

And these feet, or foot, we should say, belong to none other than Jessica Simpson.

Jessica, who is currently expecting her third child with husband Eric Johnson, shared a photo of her left foot on Instagram today, and… she swollen.

Have a squiz for yourself:

Ouch.

Fluid build-up is a common side effect of pregnancy, and can make legs and feet feel achy and tired.

Thankfully, her fans came to the rescue with such suggestions as:

“Idk did u turn it off and back on again?”

Oh, thanks.

But some were helpful, suggesting warm Epsom salt baths, elevation and rest.

We hope her foot returns to normal size soon!

3. Blake Lively just hilariously trolled her own, erm, toilet paper-themed outfit.

Never one to take herself too seriously, Blake Lively clearly enjoys her fashion with a side of satire.

The A Simple Favour actress recently shared an Instagram of herself heading to a screening of Mary Poppins Returns wearing a $2490 dress by Monse.

As always, she looked polished and put-together, but it was her own sartorial description of her outfit which we love even more.

“Going for: ‘Cinderella post stepsisters tearing up her gown because they hate her’ chic…” she wrote of her ‘undone look’.

Naturally, this sparked a series of other witty comments which jokingly poked fun at her outfit. (We’re going to assume they were all done in the spirit of things.)

“I first thought you were hurt with a bandage then read your caption. You still look good Blake!” wrote one fan.

“Did the stepsisters hurt your knee?” another joked.

“Oopps she left her apron on before putting on her coat,” shared another.

However, one thing’s for sure, whether she’s sporting apron-chic or paying subtle homage to Cinderella, she’s pulling it off.

4. Oh. It turns out Lana Condor and Noah Centineo made a contract just like their All The Boys characters.

As it turns out life truly does imitate art, especially for the cast of the Netflix film, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

You see, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo’s on-screen chemistry as Lara Jean and Peter Kaminsky is so palpable you’d think it would translate to their off-screen relationship as well.

And that may just have been the case.

Speaking to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Condor said although she and Centineo definitely felt a spark, they knew exactly what to do to keep any possible emotions in check.

“I was like, ‘It’s just not going to happen.’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, it’s not going to happen.’ And I was like, ‘Great!’” she said.

“So we kind of did what we did in To All the Boys the movie, we kind of made a contract and set boundaries and then I’m so happy that we did that because the movie turned out great and now we’re doing a sequel.”

Obviously the chemistry is still there, and we’ll be able to watch it in their next film – where it’s been rumoured Lara Jean and Peter may not actually be together *cries* – but at least it’s nice to know that the actors are still good friends outside the set.

“We still have the spark, yeah, absolutely,” she confirmed.

“We were just on the phone the other day, just talking about the sequel.”

5. Why people are calling this famous tennis player’s family the new Kardashians.

There’s just something we love about a famous family (other than the royals, of course).

And when a sparkly new surname bursts on to the scene we find ourselves utterly obsessed – spending hours upon hours knee-deep in Instagram feeds and scouring the internet for every recorded interview we can find.

Enter: The Bouchards.
