Turns out, that woman in the top hat was none other than the star of the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, who responded to Neil's tweet listing off just a few reasons as to why he should know who she is. She wrote: I’m a big fan of yours. We’ve met numerous times and my husband, Dan Gregor, wrote for "How I Met Your Mother" for 5 years.

To be fair, Bloom wasn't the only part of the show the actor took issue with.

Kim Zolciak Is Left Visibly Shaken After Hollywood Medium Tyler Henry Picks Up On Her Past Stroke — WATCH!

Kim Zolciak-Biermann's 2015 stroke was a "life-changing" moment for the Bravolebrity. In fact, the Don't Be Tardy star's health scare is such a prominent part of her story that clairvoyant Tyler Henry picked up on the past drama almost immediately during a reading.

In fact, the Don't Be Tardy star's health scare is such a prominent part of her story that clairvoyant Tyler Henry picked up on the past drama almost immediately during a reading. Ahead of Wednesday's Hollywood Medium, E! released a clip from Tyler's sit down with Kim -- and let's just say it's chilling. Related: Kim Is PISSED After A Prankster Reported Her To Animal Control After telling the Real Housewives Of Atlanta vet and her husband Kroy Biermann that he was receiving "two stroke messages," the 21-year-old medium noted: "One is a stroke that an individual suffers and then passes away. The other is an incident in which an individual has a close call involving a stroke, or something like a stroke, and they actually live and survive through this." When Henry mentioned a susceptibility to blood clots, Kim was visibly shaken up and added: "That would be me. I had a stroke September 23rd of 2015from a blood clot... I went down to hug my son as soon as I pulled into my driveway, and then my hand started to go numb, but it was numb times a gazillion, not the normal like shake it off. Then I couldn't speak and I was trying to, and it was so scary." Clearly, Tyler picked up on the mother-of-six's concern that she'll suffer another stroke in the future. The blonde TV personality revealed to the cameras: "The stroke was life-changing — literally. I never thought at 37 I would have a stroke, and in front of my children, nonetheless. I've pretty much fully recovered, but I can't say that I don't think like, ‘Could this happen again?'" Intense stuff. Be sure to ch-ch-check out their exchange for yourself (below). Trust us, you're going to want to see this! [Image via E!.].....»»

I’ve never done this before,” the 31-year-old actor confessed to Niel, who’s no strange to the Broadway stage. “It’s an amazing opportunity, and I have no idea what I’m doing onstage.” “I think the great thing about a play and the great thing about theatre is that everyone watches it and lives it from A to Z all the way through. So you will get caught up in it,” Neil said, “and the one piece of advice I would probably give is to be very careful and protective of your voice. I’ve done musicals before where you have to be careful of your voice, but a lot of people go and start shouting in a play not realizing that they need to shout almost as if they’re singing… doing that eight times a week and getting intense, and suddenly two months later you’re totally hoarse and have you to keep doing it and you can hurt your chords. So pay attention to your throat.” Armie‘s on-screen co-star Timothée Chalamet later joined the conversation to promote their critically-acclaimed film Call Me By Your Name – Watch more after the cut!

Peter Jackson Responds to Harvey Weinstein"s Denial of "Lord of the Rings" Casting Story

Peter Jackson has released a lengthy statement in response to Harvey Weinstein‘s denial of blacklisting Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino during the Lord of the Rings casting process. The Weinstein brothers were involved with the fantasy franchise when their studio Miramax was helping develop the films. The studio didn’t end up green-lighting the movie and [...] Peter Jackson has released a lengthy statement in response to Harvey Weinstein‘s denial of blacklisting Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino during the Lord of the Rings casting process. The Weinstein brothers were involved with the fantasy franchise when their studio Miramax was helping develop the films. The studio didn’t end up green-lighting the movie and the franchise moved to New Line, where the final decisions were made. Harvey‘s rep claims that he had no input on casting as “all casting was done by New Line.” Peter says that during his initial conversations with Weinstein, he brought up Ashley and Mira as possibly casting choices and he was told to “steer clear” of them “because they claimed to have had ‘bad experiences’ with these particular actresses in the past.” “This type of comment is not unusual – it can happen with any studio on any film, when different actor’s names come up in conversation – but once you hear negative feedback about somebody, you don’t forget it,” Peter said in his statement to Deadline. He added, “The movies changed hands from Miramax to New Line before casting actually got underway – but because we had been warned off Ashley and Mira by Miramax, and we were naive enough to assume we’d been told the truth, Fran [Walsh] and I did not raise their names in New Line casting conversations.” Click inside to read the full statement… Read the full statement from Peter Jackson below: Aspects of Harvey’s denial are insincere. He is basically saying that “this blacklisting couldn’t be true because New Line cast the movie”. That’s a deflection from the truth. In the 18 months we developed the Lord of the Rings at Miramax, we had many casting conversations with Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and their executives. During this period, no offers were made to actors because that occurs after a film is greenlit, and Miramax never greenlit these films. However, many conversations occurred internally regarding potential casting. Fran Walsh and I recall that Morgan Freeman, Paul Scofield, David Bowie, Liam Neeson, Natascha McElhone, Claire Forlani, Francesca Annis, Max von Sydow, and Daniel Day Lewis were some of the names discussed with Miramax for possible roles in The Lord of the Rings movies. Amongst the many names raised, Fran and I expressed our enthusiasm for Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino. In fact we met with Ashley and discussed two possible roles with her. After this meeting we were told by Miramax to steer clear of both Ashley and Mira, because they claimed to have had “bad experiences” with these particular actresses in the past. Fran Walsh was in the same meeting, and remembers these negative comments about Ashley and Mira as clearly as I do. We have no reason to make it up. This type of comment is not unusual – it can happen with any studio on any film, when different actor’s names come up in conversation – but once you hear negative feedback about somebody, you don’t forget it. We were not in a position to offer Ashley or Mira a role in the movies, but we attempted to have their names added to a list, for when casting began. Each role can have many actors names listed for future auditions and meetings. In these film maker/studio relationships, there has to be consensus in casting choices – either side can generally veto suggested names for various reasons, and in pre-Lord of the Rings days, we didn’t have the power to override the studio on casting choices. The movies changed hands from Miramax to New Line before casting actually got underway – but because we had been warned off Ashley and Mira by Miramax, and we were naive enough to assume we’d been told the truth, Fran and I did not raise their names in New Line casting conversations. Nearly 20 years later, we read about the sexual misconduct allegations being made against Harvey Weinstein and we saw comments by both Mira and Ashley, who felt they had been blacklisted by Miramax after rejecting Harvey’s sexual advances. Fran and I immediately remembered Miramax’s negative reaction when we put their names forward, and we wondered if we had unwittingly been part of the alleged damage to their careers, at the hands of Miramax. We have no direct evidence linking Ashley and Mira’s allegations to our Lord of the Rings casting conversations of 20 years ago – but we stand by what we were told by Miramax when we raised both of their names, and we are recounting it accurately. If we were unwitting accomplices in harming their careers, Fran and I unreservedly apologise to both Ashley and Mira......»»

If you missed it, Neil wrote, “Who is the woman in the top hat backstage at The Tony Awards? Gideon remarked that she says ‘like’ and ‘oh my god’ a lot. I’m confused…” Of course, Rachel was the “woman in the top hat backstage,” and she responded, “I’m a big fan of yours. We’ve met numerous times and my husband, Dan Gregor, wrote for “How I Met Your Mother” for 5 years. Notably, he wrote the episode where your character finally meets his father.” “It wasn’t a joke. Basically… I saw that tweet. And I was kind of devastated. I was actually going to tweet, ‘This makes me sad.’ But then I was like, “Ehhhhhhhhhh… I don’t want to give him that, necessarily,’” Rachel told GQ days after the incident. “Look. I’ve met him a couple times. Very recently, backstage in the dressing room of a Broadway show. And we hung out for a solid 15 minutes with the star of this Broadway show. It was just bizarre to me that it wouldn’t ring a bell. And also, that he wouldn’t Google it.” “But look, he’s not a writer, so his version of a Twitter joke is to just kind of… live-comment to Twitter followers with kind of random, unformed thoughts. And fame does that to you—where you think every kind of random, unformed thought is a gem, because you get 10,000 likes from it. He has, like, 27 million Twitter followers. And that makes me scared about fame in general. The yes-men. Even if what you’re saying is, I don’t know, kind of weird or unoriginal, you’re still getting a lot of approval and dopamine surges for saying it,” Rachel continued. “And I guess what I would say is, the thing he said in response [to my tweet] wasn’t really an apology as much as saying, like, ‘Well said! Thanks for the reminder.’” Neil later “sincerely apologized” to Rachel for the incident in the tweet, which you can see below. Sincere apologies to @Racheldoesstuff for my Tony tweet. I failed to research her before pressing ‘send’, and what I thought was a funny comment in our living room must have been far from funny to read, backstage, mid show. As a performer and a parent, I should have know better. — Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) June 13, 2018.....»»

It’s a beast. Every book is two episodes, and every episode is an hour long. So we’re making a two-hour movie every book, and there’s 13 books. So 26 feature films is essentially what we’re making here.” “From the beginning, we wanted to honour the encyclopaedic and brilliant work of [Lemony Snicket author] Daniel Handler – we had no real intention of it doing spin-offs or offshoots,” Neil continued. “It ends so operatically, and yet [the ending is] so heartfelt, and so grown-up. I don’t know where else anyone would want to go with it.” Pictured: Neil stepping out to promote A Series of Unfortunate Events – which unleashes its second season on Netflix tomorrow (March 30) – at the Today show, the SiriusXM studios and the BUILD series on Wednesday (March 28) in New York City.
