Ferrell commented on how men just haven't been cutting the mustard. "I'm not just trying to placate you, I swear, but I don't know what else to do because we — men — we've been running the show since, what, 10,000 B.C., and we're not doing so good," he said. "So, please, can you guys just take over?"

Oprah Winfrey spoke to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday (December 6th) at the Los Angeles premiere of The Color Purple. Winfrey was nominated for an Academy Award for her role as Sofia in the 1985 version of the film.

"Whenever Alice Walker wrote this in 1982 when it was first released, it put something into the world that was deeply meaningful, powerful, resilient, hopeful," she said. "I think that that message of forgiveness and joy is always needed."

Commenting on what the role meant to her, she said, "Sofia had the power back in the 1920s. Not many women had that or had the agency, as we now refer to, to be able to do that for themselves, but I loved playing that character."

She added, "Playing that character changed me, and one of the great joys for me was to be on set watching Danielle Brooks take it on and make it her own."

The Color Purple is scheduled to be released in theaters on December 25th.


Casey Wilson did not mince words when it came to sharing her experience working with Tim Allen on The Santa Clauses in 2022. The Gone Girl actor said it was the "worst, truly single worst experience I've ever had with a co-star ever," during a recent episode of her Bitch Sesh podcast.

While the pair were filming a scene together, the Great American Baking Show host recalled, "He goes over to the producer who is standing four feet from me and goes, and I hear him, he goes, ‘You gotta tell her to stop stepping on my lines.' The producer turns to me with horror on his face and has to walk one foot to me and he goes, ‘Um, Tim would ask that you stop stepping on his lines.'"

She added that "everybody was walking on egg shells" around him on set and that they "just looked frantic." The Saturday Night Live alum shared, "When he was done, he was so f—king rude. Never made eye contact, never said anything. It was so uncomfortable."

At the end of filming, she said, "Tim Allen goes, ‘Leaving!,' takes his Santa cape, picks it up and drops it on the floor and walks out … People are scurrying to pick up his velvet Santa coat. He's a b—ch. And this is the best … I will not say who said this. This was someone that I do not know, perhaps in the crew. He or she breezes past me and just goes, ‘You're seeing him on a good day.‘"

This comes after Pamela Anderson wrote in her 2023 memoir titled Love, Pamela that Allen flashed her on the set of Home Improvement in the 1990s.


Cynthia Nixon appeared on Wednesday's (December 6th) episode of The View and spoke about why she decided to join several lawmakers in a recent hunger strike to call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.

"I am the mother of two Jewish children whose grandparents are Holocaust survivors," she told the show's cohosts. "And my oldest son, in particular, he really has been reaching out to my wife and I and asking us — imploring us, really — to say, ‘Use your voice to affirm as loudly as you can that ‘never again' means ‘never again' for anyone."

The Sex and the City star was overcome with emotion as she continued to explain her reasoning for participating in the action. "We've seen the deaths of over 16,000 civilians, Palestinians in Gaza, which includes over 7,000 children," she said. "To put that into some kind of a context, that is more civilians than were killed by the U.S. and its allies in almost 20 years of war in Afghanistan."

Nixon added, "The images coming out of Gaza, the children who have no water, who have no food, who have no homes, who have no shelter of any kind, weeping over the bodies of their slain parents … What Hamas did was brutal and … unforgivable, but I don't think we get to a better place with more civilian death. And that is why, in my belief, we need a permanent cease-fire right now."
