Jolie, Pitt custody case enters new phase

A new deal has been struck in the custody case for Angelina Jolie and BradPitt’s six children, People magazine reports. Reps for Jolie told the mag the kids will stay in her custody and will continue “thereputic visits” with Pitt, as childcare professions have determined this course “to be in the children’s best interest.” Sources tell the mag, however, that Pitt still plans to push for joint custody of the kids, who range in age from 15 to 8, and the new deal is simply an extension of a previous one as both parties work on a permanent agreement.

Gadot eyes Halle Berry for Wonder Woman love interest

“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot would like to see Halle Berry cast as her love interest. That’s what the actress told a reporter from “Good Night With Guy Pines” recently when asked about a recent report that suggested the superhero could be bisexual. When asked about the possibility of a female love interest in the “Wonder Woman” sequel, Gadot said she’d love to see the “Monster’s Ball” Oscar winner in the role. “I saw her the other day, Halle Berry. She’s so beautiful. Wow! She’s gorgeous! So… yeah, I could do it with her,” Gadot said. Wonder Woman and Catwoman, together at last? We’ve still got a ways to go before it happens; “Wonder Woman” opens in theaters June 2, 2017.
