TOM HANKS ‘HAS NO RESPECT’ FOR PEOPLE NOT WEARING MASKS – (07/08/2020)
Tom Hanks appeared on The Today Show Tuesday in his first live interview since he and wife Rita Wilson were diagnosed with COVID-19 in March. He appeared frustrated at the resistance to “simple” guidelines like wearing masks.
Hanks said: [“The idea of doing one’s part should be so simple. Wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands. That alone means you are contributing to the betterment of your house, your work, your town, society as a whole and it’s such a small thing and I don’t it’s a mystery to me how somehow that has been wiped out of what should be ingrained in the behavior of us all.”]
He added: “Let’s not confuse the fact, it’s killing people. You can argue what the numbers are … it’s killing people.”
Hanks said his World War II movie Greyhound, which drops Friday on Apple+, speaks to the moment we’re in.
“There was a sensibility (during that time” that permeated all of society which was: do your part, we’re all in this together,” Hanks said. “What that meant — doing your part — was there was a tiny bit of stuff that you could do in order to aid the ongoing status of an effort that had no sign of its conclusion.”

JONAS BROTHERS POSTPONE ‘BLOOD’ MEMOIR INDEFINITELY – (07/08/2020)
The Jonas Brothers have pushed back the release of their upcoming memoir once again to ensure their final draft is “perfect.”
The band had originally planned to drop the book, Blood: A Memoir, last November following their hugely successful reunion and chart comeback, but they pushed the project back to March, and then again to October.
Now Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas have revealed they are still reworking the autobiography, so they have pulled the project from Macmillan Publishers’ release schedule until further notice.
Blood, written with biographer Neil Strauss, is described as “a totally unfiltered memoir about three brothers who learn that blood is thicker than fame.”
According to the book’s official website, Blood “details the incredible true story of the Jonas Brothers, from the band’s creation, phenomenal rise to superstardom, break up at the height of their fame, and now reunification.”

CHRISSY TEIGEN CLAPS BACK OVER CLAIMS THAT SHE LOST 50 POUNDS, HAS CANCER – (07/08/2020)
Chrissy Teigen has had it with the commentary about her appearance on social media. She shared her skincare routine with fans, and one commenter wrote: “Ok…this isn’t her or some app that changed her face. I had to look back and forth like 4 times…either she dropped 50 lbs overnight or has cancer…this isn’t right.”
After seeing the comment, Teigen replied, “What would you prefer?”
But the troll didn’t back down. She wrote: “Your bone structure is prominent and recognizable…this shot, looks like a completely different person. Did 2-3 double takes. How did you do it?”
They then added: “Apologies for the lack of tact fullness…should have thought ahead,” the social media user wrote in a another comment. “But, why did I have to go back and forth 3-4 x to make sure it was you? Is it an app? It’s not about skincare, but bone structure is completely different…you’re unrecognizable.”
Teigen replied again, writing: “Why are you carrying on with this?? Why do you think I owe you anything especially after what you’ve said? You know you don’t actually know me in real life, right? Thank God.”
