Olivia Rodrigo reveals 'strange' gifts Joe Biden gave her, plus more news

Olivia Rodrigo reveals the ‘strange’ gifts Joe Biden gave her at the White House

Over the summer, Olivia Rodrigo stopped by the White House to make a push for young people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. While she was there, the 18-year-old singer met with President Joe Biden, 78, and came home with an … odd assortment of gifts. She recounted the experience on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Oct. 26, politely detailing how “cool” it was to be on Pennsylvania Avenue and see “like, all these plates that, like, George Washington used to eat his dinner on,” even if she was worried she might “sneeze and break a priceless artifact.” Luckily, she managed to avoid destroying any presidential property. In fact, the president gave Olivia a few special items to take home — and it turns out nothing says “Uncle Joe” Biden quite like the gifts he bestowed upon his new teenage pop star pal. Referencing a photo of Olivia and Joe in matching pairs of his signature aviator shades taken that day, Jimmy asked Olivia if she’d brought her own or if the leader of the free world had gifted her a pair. “He gave them to me, actually. He gave me a few gifts,” she said. “He gave me those. He gave me some M&Ms, and he also gave me a shoehorn, which is strange.” Jimmy tried not to laugh, then joked, “Well, if you ever thought Joe Biden was too old to be president. Now we know he is … He is giving out shoehorns.” To be fair, Olivia did wear white, patent leather Giuseppe Zanotti platforms with a 5.9-inch heel to the White House. Maybe Uncle Joe just wanted to give her his footwear fashion stamp of approval.

Angelina Jolie dodges question about The Weeknd

Following rumors of a possible romance between Angelina Jolie and The Weeknd, a reporter for E! finally asked Angelina about the pop singer this week. Angelina, who shares six children with her ex, Brad Pitt, was flanked by her gorgeous kids at the world premiere for her new Marvel film, “The Eternals.” And while the star was happy to talk about her family’s reaction to the movie, she made it clear she wouldn’t be discussing the dinners she and The Weeknd have shared in recent months at Giorgio Baldi. “Angelina … your kids are at the age where they have opinions,” “The Daily Pop” host Justin Sylvester asked. “So, I have to know. Were they more excited that you were in ‘The Eternals,’ or that you are friends with The Weeknd?” Angelina, who’s no stranger to dodging questions about her personal life, handled the polite, if obvious, dig for dirt, with aplomb. “They’re very excited about this film, if that’s what you’re asking,” Angelina replied. She waited, then repeated herself, just in case: “They’re very excited about this film.” Moving on …

Channing Tatum and Zoe Kravitz’ romance continues heating up

From the 2021 Met Gala photos that show Channing Tatum holding Zoe Kravitz’s purse to the pair’s cozy, hand-holding stroll around New York City this past weekend, the two have all but confirmed their new romance in recent weeks. According to People, that’s because they’ve stopped worrying about keeping their relationship under wraps. “They are more relaxed lately,” a source tells the outlet. “They don’t seem to care about hiding their relationship anymore. It’s obvious that they are very happy.” Channing, 41, and Zoe, 32, were first spotted together over the summer in the Big Apple, where they were sharing a bike ride (on the same bike). A few days later, the stars were photographed picking up groceries and hopping into an SUV together, with Channing at the wheel. They later resurfaced together in upstate New York. Channing, who recently dated singer Jessie J on and off, was previously married to Jenna Dewan. Zoe finalized her divorce from Karl Glusman in August.

Alyssa Milano says she still feels guilty about Shannen Doherty feud

In her new book, “Sorry, Not Sorry,” Alyssa Milano touches on some of her frustrations with her ’90s series, “Charmed,” which she says featured her “running around in, like, a bra and underwear for 80 percent of every episode,” she tells ET in a new interview. Alyssa’s castmates, Shannen Doherty and Prue Halliwell, were dressed — er, undressed — similarly, but that’s not where the problems stopped. Alyssa and Shannen famously had a years-long feud that started onthat set. Looking back now, Alyssa says she shoulders a good deal of guilt, knowing she could have handled the dynamic with Shannen differently. “I would say we are cordial,” she says of the pair’s relationship more than two decades later. “You know, I could take responsibility for a lot of our tension that we had. I think a lot of our struggle came from feeling that I was in competition rather than it being that sisterhood that the show was so much about. And I have some guilt about my part in that,” Alyssa explains. She notes that she got back in touch with Shannen when she learned the “90210” alum had been diagnosed with breast cancer. “I will send her DMs every couple of months to just check in,” Alyssa said. “I have respect for her. Great actress, loves her family so much, and I just wish I could’ve felt strong enough in who I was to recognize that back then.” Alyssa’s new collection of personal essays is out now.

Police confirm new details about ‘Rust’ set shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins

The authorities in Santa Fe, New Mexico, shared new details this week about the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust” earlier this month. At a press conference on Oct. 26, the Santa Fe County Sheriff confirmed that his office had collected “about 600 items of evidence,” including “three firearms, approximately 500 rounds of ammunition, and several pieces of clothing and accessories,” according to JustJared. The sheriff went on to say they have what is believed to be the gun Alec Baldwin was handed and fired while setting up a scene with Halyna and director, Joel Souza, killing Halyna and injuring Joel. The ammunition, he added, “are a mix of blanks, dummy rounds, and what we are suspecting, live rounds.” he also said police recovered a modified revolver and a “plastic non-functioning revolver. Other outlets previously reported the gun Alec was handed was technically a real gun, not a prop gun. “A weapon was handed to Mr. Baldwin. The weapon is functional and fired a live round,” a police officer confirmed. “We know there was one live round…we suspect there were other live rounds, but that’s up to the testing. We’re going to determine how and why they got there, because they shouldn’t have been there.” The investigation is expected to continue. Though he said “it’s too early” to discuss possible charges, the sheriff confirmed “arrests will be made and charges will be filed” by the sheriff’s office if they find a crime with probable cause occurred. Otherwise, the sheriff’s team is expected to turn over its investigation and evidence to the district attorney.
