Ellen DeGeneres experienced what might be her first scare fail trying to spook Anne Hathaway on Thursday's episode of her show. Like in other recent scares, Ellen tricked the Ocean's 8 actress into thinking she was playing a simple guessing game. Only one of her goons was hiding in the suspiciously large table between them, ready to pop out on command. But the table was so thick, Ellen had to kick it hard to give her signal -- and the actress totally caught on! Thankfully, the Oscar-winner was a good sport about it and performed a fake scream anyway. Gotta love Annie's commitment to a scene!

Sarah Paulson Left Petrified After Being Scared By Ellen DeGeneres THREE TIMES — Plus, More Classic Scares!

After starring in six seasons of American Horror Story, you'd think Sarah Paulson would be tough to scare.

But it turns out the actress has a pretty low threshold for horror -- because she was left trembling on the floor after being spooked not one, not two, but THREE times by scaremaster Ellen DeGeneres! First, the daytime host startled Paulson by hiding in her dressing room closet and sneaking up on her with a maniacal laugh. Then, as the two were reliving the moment on stage, Ellen had one of her staffers sneak up behind Paulson and give her another scare! Now almost as paranoid as her AHS: Cult character, the 42-year-old had a feeling Ellen wasn't done yet. She nervously asked if someone was about to pop out of the chest behind their chairs. Seconds later, that's exactly what happened -- and she STILL let out a blood-curdling scream! Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) and see more of Ellen's best scares (below)!

"High School Musical" Starts Casting For Digital Series - Meet The Characters Here!

Casting for Disney’s High School Musical digital TV series has begun! The network revealed this morning that casting for High School Musical: The Musical, has started and also announced all the characters for the show, which will debut on the upcoming streaming service. High School Musical: The Musical is described as a “fresh take” on [...] Casting for Disney’s High School Musical digital TV series has begun! The network revealed this morning that casting for High School Musical: The Musical, has started and also announced all the characters for the show, which will debut on the upcoming streaming service. High School Musical: The Musical is described as a “fresh take” on the iconic franchise and will consist of 10 episodes, following a group of students at East High who stage a performance of “High School Musical” for their winter theater production, only to realize that as much drama happens offstage as onstage. Every episode will include a new rendition of a beloved song from the original High School Musical plus a new, original song. Click inside NOW to meet all the characters for the series! RICKY - A snarky sweetheart, a B-minus student, and our star. Ricky’s been dating fellow junior Nini for a year. When she unexpectedly breaks up with Ricky, he launches a bold plan to get Nini back — by auditioning to star opposite her in the school’s production of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. Ricky’s class-clowning covers a deep fear that he’s not actually great at anything, except coasting by on charm. Constantly attempting get-rich-quick schemes with best friend and fellow skater Big Red. Stays up too late bingeing GoPro stunt videos on YouTube. Voted “Most likely to sleep through his alarm.” NINI - The other star. Formerly relegated to the chorus of her school’s musicals, Nini just got back from summer camp, where she found her voice – and confidence — playing the lead in THE MUSIC MAN. Unfortunately, Nini also found a new boyfriend at camp. Drama. Fiercely loyal to her two moms, she’s stronger than she first appears: an iron butterfly. Never misses AMERICAN IDOL and THE VOICE (only after doing her homework, natch) and takes hour-long showers to sing Ariana Grande’s entire catalogue. Voted “Most likely to have a HAMILTON lyric as her senior quote.” E.J. – Nini’s new love interest, the type of ambitious entrepre-nerd who brings homemade props to auditions. Don’t cross E.J. if you get something he wants — like a starring role, opposite “his” girl Nini. The son of two high-powered corporate attorneys, E.J. is supremely confident but secretly prone to anxiety attacks when anything goes off-plan. A future producer more than an actor, E.J. calls the Steve Jobs biography his “bible” and keeps a copy on his nightstand. Voted “Most likely to report another student for cheating on a test.” ASHLYN - Brash and gutsy, Ashlyn’s mouthy attitude covers “new kid” self-doubt. A slightly woo-woo horoscope reader, she’s finding her place in the school hierarchy. Or trying to. (It helps that her cousin E.J. is a senior.) Worships Sara Bareilles and is an aspiring songwriter on the sly. Can’t wait till she’s old enough to vote, and she’ll march and protest in the meantime. Whether she’s cast in the musical or not, she’s got her eye on student council. Her most-used app is Headspace, for meditation (and because of her crush on the disembodied Buddha voice). Voted “Most likely to read your palm.” BIG RED – Ricky’s lifelong wingman. A skate rat, Big Red is the spiritual cousin of both Bill and Ted: always fuzzy, he’s been sleep-deprived since preschool. Big Red is weirdly devastated by Ricky and Nini’s breakup — his surest role is as their wisecracking third wheel. He has secretly crushed on Nini since middle school, and her breakup with Ricky proves a moral best-friend dilemma. He joins the backstage crew to be “Nini-adjacent.” Wants to start a garage band, but keeps forgetting to learn an instrument. He’s addicted to true crime podcasts and THE WALKING DEAD, and yet he’s afraid of the dark. Voted “Most likely to believe aliens are real, bruh.” GINA - Don’t call her an understudy, call her a “wonderstudy.” A polished pro with an Equity card and the unwavering belief that the drama teacher made a HUGE mistake not casting her as a lead. Gina is an entitled princess, but her ambition pales in comparison with her stage mother’s. Gina worries that she peaked in 6th grade, when she starred in a Canadian tour of ANNIE. Posts Instagram videos of her singing that go viral — and makes Nini seriously start to doubt her own talent. Voted “Most likely to push you down a flight of stairs.” VIKRAM - Captain of the color guard and the student choreographer of HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL. Beyoncé is his iPhone lockscreen wallpaper, and he already has his Tony Award for Best Choreography speech written out. Vikram thinks of the drama teacher as a peer — he eats lunch in her office, and has been drinking espresso since 3rd grade. All of this, even though Vikram still sleeps with a stuffed elephant, and is terrified of failure. His most-used app is Starbucks. Voted “Most likely to stage a flash mob on a field trip.” MISS JENN – The school’s new drama teacher, Miss Jenn is high-energy and low-reality. She truly believes musicals can save lives. If only she believed in telling the truth on her résumé. She’s moved back home to Utah after she left New York under mysterious circumstances, packing up in a hurry. Forces student choreographer Vikram to do a Kickstarter for the musical when the school board won’t give her the $50,000 budget she asks for. Suffers serious imposter syndrome and would ultimately do anything for these kids. Her most-used (and most-loathed) app is Tinder......»»

Ellen DeGeneres" Birthday Gift From Portia de Rossi Made Her Cry - Watch the Touching Moment!

On the show, Portia gave Ellen her birthday gift – which made Ellen cry! The gifting started with a video, which had Portia doing a voice over. “When people ask my wife, ‘who is the person, living or dead, you most want to interview?’ her answer is always Dian Fossey,” Portia said in the video. “Ellen remembers reading National Geographic at home as a little girl and remembers Dian on the cover of the January 1970 magazine. Ellen was struck by Dian’s dedication to animals, her mind, and her bravery. Ellen read how in 1967 Dian Fossey set up a camp she called Karisoke in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda. This is where Dian began studying several dozen gorillas, and at that time, Dian was alone in protecting them.” “Fast forward 18 years and the world was sad to learn that Dian was murdered in 1985 in her cabin at Karisoke. Most of us know Dian’s work from her book, ‘Gorillas in the Mist,’ which is legendary and carried on her story. Her story is also carried on through the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The Fossey Fund exists to ensure the survival and thriving of wild gorillas, in close partnership with the government of Rwanda. But unfortunately, today there are only 880 mountain gorillas alive on earth. Thus, the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund remains vitally important to ensuring their future,” Portia continued. “So, for your birthday, Ellen, I am bringing you and your hero, Dian, together by building The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. Ellen, you will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda. Now, you will join Dian as a protector and champion of these amazing animals, the mountain gorillas. Happy birthday!,” the video concluded. Watch below for the full reveal!.....»»

Joel Osteen Has A Message For Twitter Devils Who Think His Church Didn"t Do Enough To Help Hurricane Harvey Victims!

Joel Osteen is unbothered by the critics.

In a new interview, the megachurch pastor spoke on the backlash he received for not opening his Lakewood Church doors sooner to shelter Hurricane Harvey victims. For those who missed it, Osteen had to make a round of toothy interviews to address accusations saying Lakewood kept its doors closed to hurricane evacuees, and he had a rosary of excuses for doing so. Related: Tyler Perry Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Harvey Relief! Now with Lakewood finally giving shelter to a worthy amount of displaced locals, the church leader has no desire to answer to the haters on social media -- because he's only worried about serving @God. Speaking to ET's Kevin Frazier on Thursday, he explained: "You know, I'm not really concerned about the Twitter critics. We're concerned with these people [victims now at the church] and how they move forward. And there were safety issues that people don't understand. But, I really believe that if people were in my shoes, they would have done the same thing. When the building is clear, when it's safe, we can start taking people. That's what we have done for 60 years. We love helping people and that's what our message is all about." Originally, Lakewood posted that it was "inaccessible due to severe flooding." However, videos shared on Twitter appeared to show the 16,000-seat Houston church in rather dry surroundings. Osteen told critics not to go by those pictures, because he has others that prove the building flooded (Of course, you'll have to take his word for it): "I think another thing that people don't understand -- it could flood. That street could flood and in 14 hours it can be down. ... So, you can't go by that. I have video of it flooded on either Saturday night or Sunday night, I can't remember. But, you know, it can go down in 14, 15 hours." Lakewood eventually opened its doors on Tuesday. In a round of subsequent interviews, Osteen said the city didn't originally ask the church to be a shelter, but instead a "distribution center." Related: Miranda Lambert Has Rescued Over A Hundred Dogs In Texas! Still, that doesn't mean Lakewood couldn't have been better prepared for the disaster. He admitted: "Knowing what I know now, I would have put staff in here before the storm hit, put beds, do everything we could to be prepared. When it catches us by surprise, even when the cities overflow and, you know, nobody dreams that shelters will overflow. ... Hindsight, it's 20/20, but we got to move forward and do what we've done for the last 60 years and take care of these people, help them rebuild their lives, bring hope to their spirits and let them know that they can come out of this stronger than before." Despite Osteen's charitable efforts, a deluge of haters continued to rain down on him on social media. Though the 54-year-old didn't seem to care, as that's a layer of hell he has no intention on giving energy to: "I don't spend any energy on the Twitter universe or social media. And I don't mean that disrespectfully. I just don't put any energy into it. I mean, life is too short to put energy into negative emotion and I feel at peace because we did the right thing….Hey, my reputation is in God's hands and he can take care of that. We're going to continue to help people." That's right, Joel. Judgment is for the Lord -- not your 6.22 million followers on the platform you "don't spend any energy on."

Lupita Nyong"o Reveals Her Own Harvey Weinstein Massage Incident — That Happened With His Kids Nearby!

We knew the Harvey Weinstein stories weren't over. Sadly, now we're hearing one from Lupita Nyong'o.

Sadly, now we're hearing one from Lupita Nyong'o. Related: All 45+ Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far The Black Panther actress opened up in a lengthy New York Times op-ed on Thursday, in which she says she felt "a flare of rage" in learning how many women had been through what she had: "I had shelved my experience with Harvey far in the recesses of my mind, joining in the conspiracy of silence that has allowed this predator to prowl for so many years. I had felt very much alone when these things happened, and I had blamed myself for a lot of it, quite like many of the other women who have shared their stories. But now that this is being discussed openly, I have not been able to avoid the memories resurfacing. I have felt sick in the pit of my stomach." Here is her story: "I met Harvey Weinstein in 2011 at an awards ceremony in Berlin, while I was still a student at the Yale School of Drama. An intermediary introduced him to me as "the most powerful producer in Hollywood." As an aspiring actress, I was of course eager to meet people in the industry but cautious about strangers, and the intentions of men in general." She asked her dinner companions about Harvey and was given the typical response that he could be "a bully" -- which meant it was better to have him in her corner than against her. Ultimately she says he was somewhat "charming" despite his directness, and that "he didn't alarm" her at first. So when he invited her to watch a screening of a film with his family at his home in Connecticut -- near where she was living in New Haven -- she accepted. Related: Channing Tatum Cuts All Ties With The Weinstein Company His family was actually there, at least. But when they all gathered to watch the film, that's when Harvey pounced: "I settled in for the film, but about 15 minutes in, Harvey came for me, saying he wanted to show me something. I protested that I wanted to finish the film first, but he insisted I go with him, laying down the law as though I too was one of his children." In his home with his children there. Ick. "Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times... He agreed to this and lay on the bed. I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation. Before long he said he wanted to take off his pants. I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable. He got up anyway to do so and I headed for the door, saying that I was not at all comfortable with that. 'If we're not going to watch the film, I really should head back to school,' I said. I opened the door and stood by the frame. He put his shirt on and again mentioned how stubborn I was. I agreed with an easy laugh, trying to get myself out of the situation safely. I was after all on his premises, and the members of his household, the potential witnesses, were all (strategically, it seems to me now) in a soundproof room." That time, Lupita was able to leave somewhat easily enough. She says she even justified the massage request to herself, though it helped that Harvey had enticed her with the possibility of a job (on an HBO show she later found out was already off the air). But she was still uneasy with Harvey, so when he invited her to a reading of the play version of Finding Neverland, she politely refused -- until he told her she could bring anyone she wanted. She attended with two male friends. Related: Quentin Tarantino Knew Harvey 'Did A Couple Of These Things'! Nothing untoward happened the entire evening, including when a large group went out for dinner and drinks. So the next time he invited her to a screening -- this time of Madonna's film W.E. -- she accepted. "Feeling more confident about the new sense of boundaries that we had established in our last meeting, I attended the screening on my own this time. Afterward, as planned, his male assistant arranged for me to get to the Tribeca Grill, where Harvey would be joining us. I met a female assistant when I arrived there. I was expecting that it would be a group of us, as it had been for the reading, but she informed me it would just be Mr. Weinstein. She would sit with me until he arrived. She seemed on edge, but I could only imagine how stressful it was to work for a man who had so much going on." As with other stories we've heard, the assistant "immediately disappeared" after Harvey arrived. And this time he was direct: "Before the starters arrived, he announced: 'Let's cut to the chase. I have a private room upstairs where we can have the rest of our meal.' I was stunned. I told him I preferred to eat in the restaurant. He told me not to be so naïve. If I wanted to be an actress, then I had to be willing to do this sort of thing. He said he had dated Famous Actress X and Y and look where that had gotten them. I was silent for a while before I mustered up the courage to politely decline his offer. 'You have no idea what you are passing up,' he said. 'With all due respect, I would not be able to sleep at night if I did what you are asking, so I must pass,' I replied." That's when Lupita knew Harvey was through with her; she asked him if they were good and recalls his chilling response: "'I don't know about your career, but you'll be fine,' he said. It felt like both a threat and a reassurance at the same time; of what, I couldn't be sure." Lupita made a vow to herself never to work with Weinstein, a vow she kept when he tried to entice her following her Oscar win for 12 Years A Slave. Related: LAPD Opens Harvey Weinstein Rape Investigation She explains why she's telling her story now -- for all the women who are like she was: "I share all of this now because I know now what I did not know then. I was part of a growing community of women who were secretly dealing with harassment by Harvey Weinstein. But I also did not know that there was a world in which anybody would care about my experience with him. You see, I was entering into a community that Harvey Weinstein had been in, and even shaped, long before I got there. He was one of the first people I met in the industry, and he told me, "This is the way it is." And wherever I looked, everyone seemed to be bracing themselves and dealing with him, unchallenged. I did not know that things could change. I did not know that anybody wanted things to change. So my survival plan was to avoid Harvey and men like him at all costs, and I did not know that I had allies in this." She concludes: "Now that we are speaking, let us never shut up about this kind of thing. I speak up to make certain that this is not the kind of misconduct that deserves a second chance. I speak up to contribute to the end of the conspiracy of silence. Amen, sister. You can read her full op-ed HERE. [Image via Apega/Michael Wright/WENN.].....»»
