In a new interview with People, the new Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. revealed he "fell in love with two women" while looking for love on the ABC dating competition show. Related: Corinne Olympios Is Off The Market The 36-year-old race-car driver admitted: "I fell in love with two women, and I didn't know I was capable of that. I've never been in that situation, and it was really hard. And they were two very different women, and that's what made it even harder." The TV vet went on to say that the confusion led to him shedding some tears, saying: "I didn't know I was really capable of having strong feelings and being in love with more than one person, but that happened. The end was really difficult for me. And I think that it's because it's such a huge decision, and it's my life. But I'm happy, and I wouldn't have changed anything." Arie dished that he's "never really dated the same type of person" IRL, which is why he understands his final two ladies were so different. Of the 29 women vying for his heart, the leading man revealed: "There were so many different types of women and so many different personalities … but there was a common thread in all those relationships. I think I learned that I can be very open and that I can be attracted to a lot of different types of people." As for how everything ended up, Arie concluded: "I'm very happy. I have no regrets. It was an amazing experience." You can watch the beginning of his journey during the premiere of The Bachelor on Janu-Arie 1 at 8 p.m. on ABC! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Here is what the 30-year-old actor told the mag: On his love for director Luca Guadagnino: “I probably fell in love with Luca the same way Elio fell in love with [my character] Oliver. I looked at him with amazement.” Luca added, “I fell in love with Armie when I saw him in The Social Network. And then I had the privilege of meeting him, and I fell in love again. And I’ve never recovered from falling in love with him.” On the challenge of working on the film: “So much of this movie is about stripping everything away and exposing yourself. I grew up in conservative white America, where you just don’t talk about yourself, your desires, wanting to express your sensuality—it’s taboo. To be fully immersed in Luca’s world was just an incredible gift.” On being offered the role of Oliver: “It seemed so subtle, so personal, and so real that I didn’t know if I could do that as an actor. I didn’t know if I had it in me to give such a tender performance. It scared me.” For more from Armie, visit Out.com!.....»»

The 24-year-old entertainer wrote an editorial piece for Teen Vogue in which she told fans how she met a woman that she knew would be in her life for a long time and how they fell in love. “OK, we were in a relationship. I fell in love with a woman,” she wrote. Alyson says it took some time for her to accept her sexuality, but now she accepts who she is and loves herself. “I, Alyson, am attracted to men, women, and people who identify in other ways,” she wrote. “I can love people of every gender identity and expression. It is the soul that captivates me. It is the love we can build and the goodness we can contribute to the world by supporting each other’s best journeys.” “Some people in the industry warned me that I’d ruin my career, miss out on possible jobs, and potentially put my life in danger if I ever came out,” she added. “My dream and all I’d worked tirelessly for since the age of 6 was suddenly at risk by my being . . . true to myself. Imagine receiving death threats (as I have); would you choose to live a lie in order to protect your loved ones?” Alyson also released a new love song that she wrote to go along with her coming out story.

This debut will coincide with its debut on the PlayStation 4 console and PC. “Fantasy Strike is the perfect fighting game for Switch,” said David Sirlin, lead designer of the title. “The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously difficult they are to control Usually, playing a fighting game on a JoyCon would be tough, but Fantasy Strike is designed specifically for that. Detach the JoyCons, give one to a friend, and you can play a deep, strategic fighting game anywhere.” During the latest patch, professional voice acting and facial animation for all 10 characters, along with a new Team Battle mode, have been added. Sirlin Games has also combined its own network tech with GGPO networking to give players a more seamless gaming experience. We’ll be reviewing the game in the coming months (possibly on the PlayStation 4) so stay tuned for our coverage!

Fans of the NBC drama had quite the chuckle during Tuesday's premiere as Justin Hartley's character (Kevin) made a joke about how the Kardashians are like "Gremlins." How topical! Related: Kylie & Travis Have NO PLANS For A Shotgun Wedding Specifically, in regards to Kim Kardashian West's family, Hartley's character quipped: "They're like Gremlins. I promise by next week there will be a bazillion more of them." The throwaway line was so perfectly timed with the news that both Kylie Jenner and Khloé Kardashian are expecting that many viewers joked that the writers predicted the future. Now, this scene was filmed over the summer, so this is merely a coincidence. Nonetheless, as Kylie, Khloé, and potentially Kim (via surrogate) are having babies in 2018, one could assume that the This Is Us production hired a clairvoyant for the writers' room. HA!

Yes, There Was Actual Peach Fucking Behind The Scenes Of Call Me By Your Name

There was a lot of love on the set of Call Me by Your Name, but perhaps the most tender, intimate experience was when the director fucked a piece of fruit. Armie Hammer and director Luca Guadagnino spoke to OUT Magazine about what it took to bring the pages of Andre Aciman's 2007 gay romance novel [...] There was a lot of love on the set of Call Me by Your Name, but perhaps the most tender, intimate experience was when the director fucked a piece of fruit. Armie Hammer and director Luca Guadagnino spoke to OUT Magazine about what it took to bring the pages of Andre Aciman's 2007 gay romance novel to life -- and one scene in particular required some in depth research. Fans of the book will be happy to know that the film includes the memorable scene where Oliver, played by Timothée Chalamet, masturbates with a pitted peach. Related: Armie SLAMS James Woods For Criticizing Call Me By Your Name! Guadagnino admitted he had reservations about putting this scene in his script, unsure if it was realistic -- or even possible -- for man to make love with fruit. So, the filmmaker did what any other reasonable creative would do in such a situation: he tried it out for himself! He explained: "I was struggling with the possibility that you can masturbate yourself with such a fruit. So I grabbed a peach and I tried, and I have to say — it works." Thanks for the tip, Luca! Related: Sam Smith Spotted Kissing 13 Reasons Why Star Brandon Flynn! Apparently, the director wasn't the only one who was curious about the fuckability of a peach -- Chalamet had already done his own research on the subject. He added: "I went to Timothée, and said, ‘We shoot the scene, because I tried it and it worked.' And he said, ‘I tried, too, and I already knew it worked.' " Peach-sturbating was just one example of how the creative juices were flowing on set. Hammer confessed he had never been so "intimately involved" with a director before, explaining: "Luca was able to look at me and completely undress me. He knew every single one of my insecurities, every time I needed to be pushed, and when I needed to be protected… I probably fell in love with Luca the same way Elio fell in love with [my character] Oliver. I looked at him with amazement." While taking on the role of a grad student who falls in love with his professor's son was a big challenge for The Social Network actor, he said leaning into those desires was a freeing experience: "So much of this movie is about stripping everything away and exposing yourself. I grew up in conservative white America, where you just don't talk about yourself, your desires, wanting to express your sensuality — it's taboo. To be fully immersed in Luca's world was just an incredible gift." He sounds so appreciative -- what a peach! Call Me by Your Name hits theaters November 24. [Image via Sony Pictures.].....»»
