ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — Jessica Chastain has had a banner year with movies like Interstellar and A Most Violent Year, and says her love life is “fantastic” with her man of two years.

But don’t expect her to get hitched anytime soon.

“I’m not quite sure of what I want in my life, and who knows if marriage is a part of it,” Chastain told People magazine.

She continued, “So to me, marriage is not an important thing.”

Chastain has been with Italian fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo for the past two years, and last year she explained why she doesn’t date co-stars or other celebs.

“The fame is not the part of my life that I am excited about,” she told The Telegraph. “I just don’t think of myself as a movie star — I’m an actress.”

Steven Lippman/SHOWTIME(LOS ANGELES) — Are Ruth Wilson and Jake Gyllenhaal more than just onstage co-stars?

The actress, who recently won a Golden Globe for her role in Showtime’s The Affair, told the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit that she’s just friends with her co-star. The two are currently starring in the Broadway play, Constellations.

“He’s adorable, a really good guy,” she said of Gyllenhaal.

“We’ve become like brother and sister a little bit,” Wilson continued. “We spend so much time together. We trust that even if we have a little [disagreement] — which is going to happen because we’re in a tense environment that demands a lot from us — we’ll make up and we’ll be fine. I trust him implicitly.”

Rumors started swirling after the Golden Globes when reportedly the two actors were seen kissing and holding hands at an after party.

Gyllenhaal’s known for dating actresses, including Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon. He’s also been linked to Taylor Swift and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Alyssa Miller.

Anna Webber/Getty Images for Maxim(LOS ANGELES) — Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin said in 2013 he was happy waiting tables at a local Pennsylvania restaurant. But now, the reality star has a new gig — as a DJ.

“I love it,” he told People magazine about the new career path. “The hours are great. I get to go out, have a good time with all my friends, play the music I like to hear and have the day to myself.”

His professional name is nothing flashy: it’s just DJ Jon Gosselin. He says he’s simply capitalizing on his reality-star fame since “it’s not going away.” He even calls himself a “celebrity disc jockey” on his business card.

For a short time in 2013, it seemed Gosselin wanted out of the spotlight. Then he came back to TV in last season’s Couples Therapy on VH1. Now, he’s doing upward of 15 DJ shows a month near his home in Pennsylvania.

Other stars, such as Paris Hilton, have turned to DJ-ing, but Gosselin said it’s not an easy transition.

“You have to know what you’re doing. You have to keep the flow,” he said. “I play to the crowd. I’ll go back to the ’50s and play some James Brown, then into the ’80s: Prince and stuff like that. Then into the ’90s, and then Taylor Swift or whatever. I just move around.”

Gosselin said the one thing he won’t do is perform at weddings — because of his celebrity.

“The brides get pissed,” he said. “I’ve been at people’s weddings and then their guests start taking pictures of me and it’s not good.”

ABC/Adam Taylor/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — There’s some dissension in the Marvel universe, all because the Seattle Seahawks will play the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Chris Evans, who plays Captain America on the big screen, is from Boston and is a Patriots fan. Chris Pratt, who filled the role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy last year, is a native of Lake Stevens, Washington, and roots for the Seahawks. So, the two are now engaged in a friendly — and charitable — rivalry.

Evans decided to needle Pratt on Twitter the other day by writing, “Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy.”

Pratt replied, “We both know there’s only one Captain America and his name is Russell Wilson,” the quarterback for the Seahawks.

Evans then suggested the two put something on the line for the big game. Pratt answered that if the Seahawks win, Evans must visit Seattle Children’s hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th Man Flag that represents Seahawks fans at home games.

Evans agreed to the terms on Wednesday, adding, “[W]hen the Patriots humiliate your seachickens, I expect Star-Lord to arrive at @chris_haven in a [Tom] Brady jersey.”

Christopher’s Haven is a non-profit organization that provides supportive housing for families whose children are receiving outpatient pediatric cancer treatments in Boston.

The Seahawks and Patriots will meet in Super Bowl 49 in Glendale, Arizona, on Feb. 1.

Fox(NEW YORK) — After playing the socially-awkward Dwight Schrute on The Office for nine seasons, actor Rainn Wilson tackles a different kind of role in his new Fox series, Backstrom, which premieres Thursday night.

He is the titular character in Backstrom — an irritable, erratic detective who, Wilson says, “hates everyone, including himself.”

Wilson says it’s been a challenging role for him, one that’s very different from the Dwight Schrute character he’s best known for.

Wilson was reluctant to star in another TV show after The Office concluded its run in 2013, but he says Backstrom was “too great to pass up.”

Backstrom, an adaptation by Bones creator Hart Hanson of a Swedish book series, was originally a CBS project. However, after the network passed on it, Fox stepped in and ordered the show to series.

Backstrom premieres on Fox Thursday night at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

LucasFilm(NEW YORK) — It seems Star Wars mastermind George Lucas won’t have much influence over the new film in the franchise.

Lucas — who sold Lucasfilm, the production company responsible for the Star Wars films, to Disney in 2012 — was asked by Cinema Blend to share ideas he’d presented for the upcoming installment, The Force Awakens.

He answered, “The ones that I sold to Disney, they came up to the decision that they didn’t really want to do those. So they made up their own. So it’s not the ones that I originally wrote [on screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens].”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams, will hit theaters Dec. 18.

Disney, which is releasing the new Star Wars movie, is the parent company of ABC News.

Nathaniel Chadwick/NBC(NEW YORK) — Another one of Bill Cosby’s former co-stars from The Cosby Show is weighing in on the controversy surrounding the comedian in which several women have accused Cosby of sexual assault.

Malcolm-Jamal Warner told Billboard, “He’s one of my mentors, and he’s been very influential and played a big role in my life as a friend and mentor. Just as it’s painful to hear any woman talk about sexual assault, whether true or not, it’s just as painful to watch my friend and mentor go through this.”

“I can’t really speak on any of the allegations because obviously, I was not there,” he continued. “The Bill Cosby I know has been great to me and great for a lot of people. What he’s done for comedy and television has been legendary and history-making. What he’s done for the black community and education has been invaluable. That’s the Bill Cosby I know. I can’t speak on the other stuff.”

Fellow comedian Jay Leno was also asked about Cosby and seemed to take the side of the accusers.

“I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe women,” Leno said Wednesday at the National Association of Television Program Executives conference in Miami. “You to go Saudi Arabia and you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.”

Cosby has continued to deny the allegations. He has never been criminally charged in connection with any of the allegations.
