Hadid’s new ‘do comes amid rumors that she and her on-again, off-again boyfriend The Weeknd, have called it quits. The couple initially ended things in 2016, before rekindling their romance last year.

However, a source recently told ET that the couple is still together “but are working through things like normal couples do.”

“The couple travels a lot, works a lot and that often creates tension,” the source said. “However, the two love one another, have lost one another in the past and want to try and make it work.”

“Right now they are together and working on keeping it that way,” the source added.

Watch the video below for more on the duo.

Sistine Stallone Recalls FaceTiming Dad Sylvester for Tips While Filming ’47 Meters Down: Uncaged’ (Exclusive)

Sistine Stallone made her big night on the red carpet a family affair!

The 21-year-old actress was joined by her sisters, Scarlet and Sophia, mother Jennifer Flavin and dad Sylvester at the Los Angeles premiere of her upcoming film, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. While speaking with ET’s Lauren Zima at the big event, Sistine revealed that her famous father not only supported her on the red carpet, she also leaned on him while filming the horror movie. 

After 47 Meters Down: Uncaged director Johannes Roberts revealed to ET that the father-daughter duo would FaceTime on set, Sistine recalled, “Yeah, [my dad] wanted the directors note to be, instead of swimming away, confront the shark head-on — which I don’t think would’ve play out well.”

Roberts also shared how the 73-year-old Rocky star sent notes. “[Sylvester] would occasionally message. I think him and Sistine would chat every day on FaceTime,” he said. “[Sylvester] would say, ‘This is what you should be doing and this is it.’ She would come to me and say, ‘Look, my dad wants me to punch the shark.’ …They were so fun.”

While Sylvester is no doubt a Hollywood legend, his daughter would never let him know it! “He’s my dad. I will never admit that he’s a big deal, are you kidding me?” Sistine, who stunned in a Ralph Lauren mini-dress at the premiere, quipped. 

Though she’s taking after her father when it comes to her acting career, the two differ when it comes to their reality TV preferences. Sistine is admittedly a Real Housewives fan, while her dad prefers more reality competition series. “You know, he’s more of an America’s Got Talent, Dancing With the Stars-type fan,” she said before exclaiming to her action star father, “I’m totally outing you, I’m so sorry, so sorry.”

47 Meters Down: Uncaged — also starring Jamie Foxx’s daughter, Corinne Foxx — hits theaters on Aug. 16.

Cameron Boyce’s Parents Recall Their ‘Beautiful Family Night’ With Son Hours Before His Death

Cameron Boyce’s parents are speaking out following their son’s death.

In a sneak peek of Victor and Libby Boyce’s first interview since their son’s tragic death last month, the couple tells Good Morning America‘s Robin Roberts about the family night they had just hours before Cameron died at age 20 due to epilepsy. 

“The night he passed away, we were out to dinner with him just hours before,” Victor says. “It was a completely normal, beautiful family night out to dinner.”

“There was no indication that anything was wrong,” he adds of Cameron. “I mean there was no way to know in hours my son would be dead. Like, it was just staggeringly crazy and horrible. And we were texting that night.”

As for Libby, she reveals that her son “didn’t want his epilepsy to define him” and made sure that “it didn’t.”

“It didn’t define him,” Victor agrees. “He wasn’t scared. He never complained about anything.”

“Never,” Libby emphatically concurs. “He loved life. He was kind of in a place — this is, for me, the hardest thing — he was in a place where he was truly happy. I mean, Cameron was always happy. Never a negative thing came out of his mouth. Never! But he was just really finding his groove.”

While the couple is clearly proud of Cameron’s on-screen accomplishments — he was known for roles in Disney projects including Jessie and The Descendants — it’s his charity work they really want to highlight, something they plan to do through a foundation in their late son’s name.

“He was really, like, really getting into the charity stuff. Really getting into what he wanted to do with his voice, which is what we always told him to do — use your voice. Use it to make positive [change] in the world,” Libby says. “And that’s what he was starting to do.”

“His legacy is important to us because we don’t want him to be remembered as just an actor or some Disney kid. Because he was so much more than that,” Victor adds. “He wanted to be known as his own person, you know, individually and not cookie-cutter.”

In addition to his acting and charity work, Cameron’s parents also speak to the light he brought the world in general.

“Holidays and events, when he would walk in, it would just light up the room and the party would start,” Libby recalls. “And so that’s just an important message that, you know, as an actor, that was just a small piece of who he was.”

“That’s what gave him some fame, but as a human, he was all about, you know, not being cookie cutter, and about creativity and about joy and no labels,” she adds. “He was just a human being.”

Good Morning America‘s full interview with Cameron’s parents will air Thursday, Aug. 15 on GMA and Nightline.

Ian Ziering Faces Off Against the Walking Dead in Syfy’s Outrageous ‘Zombie Tidal Wave’ Movie (Exclusive)

It’s Ian Ziering versus the walking dead!

The BH90210 star leads the latest Syfy original film, Zombie Tidal Wave, and it’s as ridiculous as the title suggests. In the movie, Ziering plays Hunter Shaw, a fisherman who is forced to be a small town’s savior when a zombie-slinging tidal wave causes maritime mayhem. Yup, this is an actual movie!

In ET’s exclusive sneak peek, Hunter races against time as the zombie-infested waters threaten to put the town in dire straits.

When he runs to the safety of his truck, sword in hand (of course), his paranoia reaches astronomical levels when a few unexpected guests suddenly appear in the backseat, prompting Hunter to hurtle himself at who he believes are zombies.

Thankfully, they’re just innocent bystanders looking for a temporary safe haven.

“Where’d you two come from?” Hunter asks incredulously, after nearly injuring them.

“Can you just get us to a hotel or something?” one of them asks, prompting Hunter to lecture them on their ill-advised priorities: “A five-star hotel isn’t going to protect you from that.”

But time is of the essence, as a zombie starts to approach their truck. Uh-oh. Watch ET’s exclusive clip above.

Zombie Tidal Wave premieres Saturday, Aug. 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.

‘Elementary’ Series Finale Sneak Peek: Sherlock Reveals He’s Been Keeping Busy After Faking Death (Exclusive)

Spoiler alert! If you’ve watched the series finale of Elementary, read what creator Rob Doherty had to say about Sherlock and Joan’s ending. 

It’s time to say goodbye to Sherlock Holmes and Joan Watson.

Elementary wraps up its seven-season run on Thursday with its final episode ever, appropriately titled “Their Last Bow,” which picks up three years after the events of last week’s dramatic hour and reunites Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) with his trusty partner, Joan (Lucy Liu), one last time. 

It quickly becomes apparent how much things have changed in the three years since Sherlock faked his own death, a drastic decision made out of desperation to bring his nemesis, tech billionaire Odin Reichenbach (guest star James Frain), to justice. And when Sherlock makes a surprise visit in the brownstone he once called home, following Joan’s secret call for help amid worries that his ex-lover Jamie Moriarty may be causing trouble, the ex-partners have a lot of catching up to do.

In ET’s exclusive sneak peek, Sherlock rattles off just what he’s been up to since he, you know, undid his own death — and unsurprisingly, he’s been keeping busy with the P.I. thing since losing touch with Joan. 

“I kept quite busy after my death. Traveled, first to Florence, then to Tibet, spent a good deal of time in Norway. You might have read about the wonderful exploits of a Norwegian named Sigerson,” Sherlock proudly reveals to an not-so-amused Joan. “I suppose it never occurred to you, you were receiving news of your friend.”

As he explains, assuming various identities all over the world has been “a boon” for the sleuth, as he spent the better part of his three years away targeting powerful criminals doing terrible things “from the shadows.” But now that he’s back from the dead, will he be able to keep Moriarty from striking again? Watch ET’s exclusive clip above.

Earlier this year, Elementary boss Rob Dohertyoffered a glimpse into what awaits fans in the series finale.

“I’m very proud of the way we ended things. You hate to have one good finale and one bad finale. Even though I was nervous going into it and had a few sleepless nights as we started to search for another series finale, I feel really good about where we went,” Doherty said in May. “I hope anyone who enjoyed the original series finale will enjoy this one just as much.”

The Elementary series finale airs Thursday, Aug. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Elisabeth Moss, Cast React to That Harrowing Season 3 Finale (Exclusive)

Whoever said the resistance is futile hadn’t met the handmaids of Gilead. 

Season three of The Handmaid’s Tale, which is adapted from Margaret Atwood’s novel about women forced into child-bearing servitude after the totalitarian society of Gilead took over parts of the United States, kicked things off with a spirit of resistance after June (Elisabeth Moss) sent baby Nichole with Emily (Alexis Bledel) to cross the Canadian border while opting to stay behind to rescue her oldest daughter, Hannah. 

Executive producer Warren Littlefield told ET at the beginning of this season that the core journey was about the radicalization of June, who was determined to see Hannah freed but also had a chance to fight back. “In this fascist world, how [does June] make a difference?” Littlefield pondered, while creator and fellow executive producer Bruce Miller said this year was all about figuring out what they “wanted June to be challenged with.” 

Ultimately, June was met with many — the distrust of handmaid Ofmatthew (Ashleigh LaThrop), the vengeful eye of Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd), and the Waterfords’ (Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski) manipulative efforts to regain power and status in Gilead — that reinforced her commitment to infiltrate an underground network of Marthas and come up with the ambitious Mayday plan to sneak children across the Canadian border. 

“When I heard about the ending, I thought it made a lot of sense,” Moss told ET’s Brice Sander. “I thought it was surprising [and] heartbreaking.” 

In the final chapter of season three, audiences watched as June executed her plan. However, things quickly start to fall apart when a Martha and child arrive at the house too early, setting the plan in action sooner than expected while Winslow has second thoughts and even attempts to stop June. Once she regains control of the situation, the handmaids, Marthas and children make the harrowing journey from Commander Lawrence’s house — an unexpected ally played by Bradley Whitford — through the woods to a small airstrip. 

“I just thought, ‘Oh, my god,’” Dowd says, recalling how her anxiety and adrenaline were pumping as she read the tension-filled script. “You’re in the woods with them; it’s dark! What’s happening? It’s so good!”

Just as they are about to reach the plane, a group of guardians arrives at the airstrip forcing June to make another choice — to stay behind in Gilead and distract them from stopping the women and children escaping. She’s ultimately joined by other handmaids, including Janine (Madeline Brewer), Brianna (Bahia Watson) and Alma (Nina Kiri), and Marthas who fight off the guards. But in the process, June is shot while several other handmaids and Marthas are killed. 

“I felt really great to be part of the resistance ‘cause I always knew Janine had it in her,” Brewer says of her character’s heroic turn after multiple seasons of onscreen abuse. “We finally have built up to this point where we’re actually resisting. It was very much something that I’ve been waiting for for three seasons.”

Kristen Gutoskie, who plays one of the Marthas named Beth, says “it’s a moment for women to come together and resist and be empowered. It was really exciting to read it and to be a part of it.”

In Canada, Rita (Amanda Brugel) and the remaining handmaids, Marthas and children are greeted by Emily, Moira (Samira Wiley) and Luke (O-T Fagbenle) after arriving safely. “Rita’s in Canada. I’m home,” Brugel says, revealing that she was sobbing after reading the script. “It’s such a beautiful testament to her.” 

After three seasons spent in Gilead, wearing the Martha uniform, Brugel was anticipating what it would be like to say goodbye to that experience. “On our last day of filming, I actually posted a picture of me holding my costume on Instagram because for season four, I won’t be in that costume. It’s been my mainstay for three years, it’s such a security blanket,” she explains. “I feel like not only Rita has Stockholm syndrome, but I did a bit too, where I hated Gilead. But it also was my normal. I’m excited and scared and happy and excited for fans to see it. People are gonna lose their minds.”

“It’s a great finale. What I love is June’s efforts to get all these important young people out,” Fiennes says, before commenting on Fred Waterford’s state. At the end of the season, he’s been taken prisoner by the Canadian government after he and Serena attempted to take Nichole’s return into their own hands and crossed the border to negotiate a deal. 

Once a united front, the couple — seemingly at the end of their frayed marriage — turn on each other in order to get escape punishment for various war crimes. “There’s a real feeling for Fred that his wife is connected back with him, so to be deceived was a big smack in the face,” Fiennes adds. “But, you know, as it should happen to all war criminals. They should definitely get their comeuppance.”

Before the episode ends, audiences find out that June is still alive, collected by the surviving handmaids. Despite her injury, she appears as defiant as ever as she looks to the camera with a small smile on her face. “June never gives up and she never gives up on what she wants,” Moss says, asking the audience not to give up on her, knowing that the series has been renewed for another season.

In the end, “this year was about June becoming a fighter, going up against Gilead and actually accomplishing something,” Littlefield said, summing up season three. 

All three seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale are now streaming on Hulu.

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: What Elisabeth Moss, Ann Dowd and Others Want to See in Season 4 (Exclusive)

Resistance may have been the theme of season three, but the fight on The Handmaid’s Tale is far from over. 

Adapted from Margaret Atwood’s novel about women forced into child-bearing servitude after the totalitarian society took over parts of the United States, the series has moved far beyond the source material as June (Elisabeth Moss) succeeds in her most defiant act yet: freeing a number of Marthas, handmaids and children from the clutches of Gilead.

Our heroine, however, remains within Gilead’s borders, having been shot after distracting the guardians from attempting to stop her plan of getting the women and children into Canada. Despite this huge setback, “June never gives up and she never gives up on what she wants,” Moss tells ET’s Brice Sander, adding: “I always ask the audience to not give up on her.” 

The actress, who also serves as an executive producer on the series, admitted that they haven’t begun thinking about season four yet, but that she and creator Bruce Miller would be talking very soon “about our feelings about June and everything,” she said. “We’ll figure it out.”  

In the meantime, the cast and producers addressed where certain characters stood at the end of season three and revealed their hopes for season four. 

June and Janine

The Handmaid's Tale S3
Hulu

While her Mayday mission was a success, June was forced to sacrifice herself. But she was not alone in her fight, Janine (Madeline Brewer), Brianna (Bahia Watson) and Alma (Nina Kiri) also stayed behind alongside her. The three were last seen scooping up June as they trudge through the woods, now fugitives in Gilead. 

Though Moss couldn’t say anything too specific about June’s upcoming journey, she does believe that June’s daughter, whose whereabouts with the MacKenzies remains unknown, was the motivation behind her sacrifice. “She’s sticking around for Hannah,” she says. 

Amanda Brugel, who plays June’s former Martha, Rita, said there’s no series without June in Gilead. “We realized that she has to be there,” she says, adding there were different versions of the ending about whether “she was going to make it [or] if she wasn’t.” Now with a number of key characters in Canada, Brugel says June “has more of a fire and a fight to get Hannah out.”

When it comes to Janine, Brewer would like to see the brutalized handmaid take hold of the strength audiences have seen snippets of throughout the series. “She’s brave, you know? I like that Janine is always giving us the unexpected,” Brewer says, adding that Janine taking action in the Mayday mission was an unexpected move. “I would like to see her really own that [newfound] power.” 

Rita and the Waterfords

The Handmaid's Tale S3
Hulu

Following an attempt to negotiate Nichole’s return beyond Canada’s borders, both Waterfords were taken into custody. Fearing a life behind bars, Serena (Yvonne Strahovski) and Fred (Joseph Fiennes) turned on each other. Reflecting on those final moments of deception, Fiennes said that he loved it “because just before that moment there’s a real feeling, certainly for Fred, that his wife is connected back with him.” 

“So to be deceived was a big smack in the face,” he continues. “But, you know, as it should happen to all war criminals. They should definitely get their comeuppance.” Now seemingly stuck in prison, the actor’s only hope is that his cellmate is “not a big burly chap that has predispositions like Christopher Meloni’s character [Commander Winslow].”

“Fred and Serena certainly have a lot of stuff to work out in their marriage,” Miller adds.  

Coincidentally, Rita, the Waterfords’ former Martha, is now in Canada. Now that she’s free from oppression, Brugel is anticipating that first encounter between Rita and her former rulers. “I really want to see that first, initial conversation with the Waterfords,” she says. “I want to see how that conversation goes because we learn that Rita has such an empathetic heart and I’m wondering if it will turn now that she doesn’t have to be as empathetic anymore.”

Like Emily (Alexis Bledel) and Moira (Samira Wiley), Brugel also thinks that Rita will have some recovering to do and would like to explore that. “[We have] an opportunity to see what happens in Canada [to the] people who have been in oppressive situations — how they grow and how they survive afterwards,” she says. 

“I think the show has an obligation to represent an accurate refugee experience because so many of our characters are either trapped or they’re going to be refugees,” Miller adds. “Those are their only two choices, so you really have to represent that option as a true option of what it’s really like.”

But Littlefield warned that “just because you are in Canada, [it] doesn’t mean you’ll stay there.” 

Nick

The Handmaid's Tale S3
Hulu

While the final three episodes focused on June’s Mayday mission, several characters’ stories remained unseen, including Nick (Max Minghella). In season three, his relationship with June became even more complicated after it was revealed that he was an Eye, a spy for Gilead. He’s then promoted to the ranks of commander before being shipped off to the frontlines of Chicago, where Gilead was battling the U.S. over territory. 

“I love the Nick-June relationship as much as anyone, if not more,” Moss says, while commending the show for not focusing too much on their romance instead of June’s fight for freedom. But like fans, she misses Nick. “I think he should come back.” 

“I don’t think I saw enough of him this year either,” Miller adds, echoing Moss’ sentiment. “Max is such a wonderful actor and we love having him in the show. It’s just, you know, you follow June and the flow of that sometimes leads you away from all the stories you want to tell.” 

For Kristen Gutoskie, who played Beth, a Martha that Nick encountered at the Jezebels before she was placed in Commander Lawrence’s household, there’s a number of unanswered questions about Nick she’d like to see answered next season. “Like, what’s going on with Nick and Beth?” Gutoskie says, adding that she’d like to see the series go deeper into the bigger questions about Gilead: “The ins and outs of the power structure; how it really got started; what the beginning moment was when they actually made this happen. That would be interesting.”  

Aunt Lydia and Naomi Putnam 

The Handmaid's Tale S3
Hulu

As two of the most staunch followers of Gilead, it’s no surprise that Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) and Commander Putnam’s wife, Naomi (Ever Carradine), continue to live under the totalitarian society’s strict rules.

What the escape plan means for Lydia in particular, Dowd isn’t so sure. But she points to episode eight, when audiences learned about her past before Gilead. “She was a teacher; she loves children. She’s not there to squash who they are; she wants to know who they are,” she says. “I think her huge attachment to religion and all that goes with it is a complicated thing.”

Meanwhile, Carradine wouldn’t mind exploring Putnam’s backstory like the show did with Lydia. “She’s comfortable in her misery,” she says. “Like, I think a state of dissatisfaction and anger is her resting state, so that’s where I kind of want to see her pre-Gilead because I’m like, ‘Was she just always like that?’”

Season 4 and Beyond

When it comes to season four and beyond, many fans are curious to know if the show has an endgame in mind. The series’ plot has gone far beyond what’s in the book, though Atwood is writing a sequel set to arrive this fall that could provide additional inspiration and/or material for the writers to build upon.

Ultimately, for Miller, it’s about telling June’s journey until they run out of ideas. “I always feel like we let her lead us,” he says. “At the beginning of the show, I was just shocked that she made it through each episode alive and now she seems to be making it through episodes and getting stuff done… Whatever comes after that is is her next step.”

“I definitely have possible endgames in sight, but when they’re all going to coalesce into a finished episode and something you can put nicely in the show next to your copy of The Handmaid’s Tale, I don’t know when that’s going to happen,” Miller notes, adding: “I’m gonna keep going with it until there’s nothing more interesting and there’s certainly a ton interesting in it now.”

All three seasons of The Handmaid’s Tale are now streaming on Hulu.

’13 Reasons Why’ Teases Multiple Murder Suspects in New Trailer — Watch!

Who killed Bryce Walker?

That’s the question Netflix asks in a brand-new trailer for the upcoming third season of 13 Reasons Why, which dropped Wednesday. In the clip, Bryce’s mom is on the hunt for the person who shot her son, but it won’t be an easy task, as Bryce made more than a few enemies during the first two seasons.

Justin (Brandon Flynn) is the first to verbalize that “someone we know could have done this,” and while Jessica (Alisha Boe) says that she finds that idea “crazy,” she’s quickly named as a suspect in the case.

Other potential murderers named are Tyler (Devin Druid), Montgomery (Timothy Granaderos), Justin and Zach (Ross Butler). The most shocking suspect, though, is Clay (Dylan Minnette), who is arrested for the murder in the trailer. 

“I didn’t do anything!” Clay insists as he questions where his pal, Tony (Christian Navarro), was the night of Bryce’s (Justin Prentice) death.

After shots of Bryce’s body being rolled down a hill, students talking to police, and Jessica confessing that she’s “scared” play out, Clay ends the trailer on an eerie note.

“This whole f**king world is better without him in it,” he angrily declares through tears.

The trailer comes just weeks after Netflix released the first bits of information about season three, revealing that it’ll pick up eight months after the events of the second season. The streaming platform also revealed that the teen show has already been renewed for a fourth and final season.

“Eight months after preventing Tyler from committing an unthinkable act at Spring Fling, Clay, Tony, Jessica, Alex, Justin, and Zach find ways to shoulder the burden of the cover-up together while helping Tyler move toward recovery,” the new season’s synopsis read. “But when the aftermath of a tumultuous homecoming game culminates in the disappearance of a football player, and Clay finds himself under police scrutiny, it’s up to a shrewd outsider to steer the group through an investigation that threatens to lay bare everyone’s deepest secrets.”

“The stakes are raised in this riveting third season of 13 Reasons Why, as the consequences of even the most well-intended actions can alter a life forever,” the synopsis concluded.

Season three of 13 Reasons Why hits Netflix on Aug. 23.

Serena Williams’ Husband Alexis Ohanian Advocates for Paternity Leave, Recounts Her Pregnancy Scare

Alexis Ohanian wouldn’t trade his paternity leave for the world! 

The 36-year-old co-founder of Initialized Capital and Reddit opened up in a new personal essay for NYT Parenting about his decision to take his 16 weeks of leave when he and wife, Serena Williams, welcomed their 1-year-old daughter, Olympia, in September 2017. 

“Nothing could have dragged me away from my wife and daughter in those hours, days and weeks — and I’m grateful that I was never forced to choose between my family and my job,” he wrote. 

Noting that Williams faced “near-fatal complications” during Olympia’s birth, Ohanian expressed how important his time off was to their family. 

“Serena spent days in recovery fighting for her life against pulmonary embolisms. When we came home with our baby girl, Serena had a hole in her abdomen that needed bandage changes daily,” he recalled of the tennis pro who had an emergency C-section. “She was on medication. She couldn’t walk.”

I took my full 16 weeks of #PaternityLeave and I’m still ambitious AF and (clearly) care about my career. Talk to your bosses and tell them I sent you. Here’s my op-ed about it in the @nytimes (link in bio)

Ohanian noted that his time with Olympia early on made him more sure of himself as a parent. 

“Spending a big chunk of time with Olympia when she was a newborn gave me confidence that I could figure this whole parenting thing out,” he wrote. “As an only child with no cousins, I didn’t grow up around babies; in fact, I had never held one until my daughter was born. At first, holding her terrified me. I am a giant and she’s so tiny… What if I break her? I didn’t  — which was encouraging — and then I learned how to calm her crying, rock her to sleep and handle her toddler years with grace.”

He also insisted that the traditional gender roles in their household had been erased thanks to his paternity leave.  

“Taking leave also set me off on the right foot for sharing parental responsibilities,” he said. “Two years later, there is no stigma in our house about me changing diapers, feeding Olympia, doing her hair or anything else I might need to do in a pinch.”

Weekend “brunch” plans now start at 8am and it turns out there’s no wait at that hour and lots of crayons…

Ohanian is speaking out in order to promote more fathers taking paternity leave. In the essay, he acknowledges that a lot of families don’t have the “privilege” of having so much or any time off, noting the U.S. is “the only industrialized country that doesn’t mandate some form of paid family leave.” He added that even when dads are given paternity leave, they don’t always feel comfortable taking it. 

“Men are conditioned to be breadwinners, exclusively — and another mouth to feed calls for more bread on the table (to say nothing of college tuition) — so off to work we go,” he wrote. “I get that not every father has the flexibility to take leave without the fear that doing so could negatively impact his career. But my message to these guys is simple: Taking leave pays off, and it’s continued to pay dividends for me two years later.”
