If you're as big a fan of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris as we are, you can't stop wondering… WHAT HAPPENED!?!

In searching for answers, People found a couple eyewitnesses from the last public event attended by Pratt, just two weeks before the heartbreaking announcement the two were separating.

Chris went stag to the Avenue LA premiere of Ingrid Goes West, supporting — along with Parks And Recreation costars Amy Poehler and Retta — his old pal Aubrey Plaza.

The minions have it!

Despicable Me 3 landed at the very top of the box office this weekend, drawing in the most money of any film across North America, and yet it fell far short of expectations, suggesting some sluggishness with now the third installment of the franchise.

Gru and his minions put up a respectable showing by most standards, of course: Despicable Me 3 took in $75.4 million from 4,529 theaters across North America this weekend. And yet that's a disappointment relative to the hope that it might do as much as $90 million in its opening weekend.

Overseas, the flick did very well: $95.6 million from 52 different foreign markets this week alone. Add that and its $75.4 million from North America to its early roll out in some places elsewhere in the world the past few weeks, and that gives Despicable Me 3 a total of $192.3 million globally.

Nothing to sneeze at, but still below expectations — especially for

Read her inspiring message HERE!

Actress Natalie Morales is using her fame for good!

The former Parks and Recreation star opened up to the public in a letter posted to Amy Poehler's site Smart Girls, in order to shed light on acceptance of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Why??

Because she's decided to come out to the world as queer.

In her very candid essay, Natalie wrote about her experiences growing up being attracted to boys and girls:

"I am not attracted specifically to any type of gender. I'm attracted to people. Each person is their own incredible, massive universe. That is what I am attracted to; that is what I want to know, want to love, want to defend, want to take care of. I don't like labeling myself, or anyone else, but if it's easier for you to understand me, what I'm saying is that I'm queer. What queer means to me is just simply that I'm not straight. That's all. It's not scary, even though that word used to be really, really scary to me."

This came after the 32-year-old revealed that while she would like to hold onto having a private life for so long, she couldn't not speak up any longer.

Putting it so eloquently, she continued:

Don Rickles may be gone, but he definitely won't be forgotten.

In fact, the industry vet preserved his own legacy by filming a new TV just before his death. As we previously reported, the celebrated comedian passed away this week in his Los Angeles home from kidney failure. He was 90 years old.

But it appears as though Don will keep fans laughing long after his death as he filmed 10 episodes for his final TV show, titled Dinner With Don.

The series features the Casino actor grabbing dinner with some of Hollywood's brightest stars — including Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Amy Poehler, etc. While AARP Studios has yet to lock in a distributor or a premiere date, they seem eager to release the footage as they noted in a statement:

"All of us at AARP Studios are immensely saddened with the passing of Don Rickles. We had the distinct pleasure of recently working with Don on our upcoming series Dinner with Don. Don was known for his biting, acerbic humor and we feel lucky enough to have experienced that first-hand. He was also a thoughtful, kind and generous colleague and friend. Don continued to make audiences laugh throughout his life and career and his legacy will live on. We send our condolences to his family and longtime industry colleagues."

So sad. And, from the looks of the trailer, the show is destined to be a hit. Be sure to ch-ch-check out the trailer for Dinner With Don for yourself (below)!
