Scott Porter Says He Once Felt Like 'New James Marsden'

Scott Porter Says He Once Felt Like 'New James Marsden'

Scott Porter is reflecting on feeling typecast at one point in his career.

The 41-year-old Ginny & Georgia actor opened up about his past roles in an episode of the Watch with Us podcast.

“For a little while, I was, like, the new James Marsden, and the fact that if you watch The Notebook or the Superman Returns movie — or any number of films for a little while — he was the good guy who does nothing wrong, but still never gets the girl,” Scott said. “I kind of did that a couple of times. I was like, ‘Oh, no, I’m that guy. I’m the nice guy who doesn’t ever get the girl!’”

However, Scott is still grateful for the variety of characters he’s gotten to play over the years on shows like Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, Hart of Dixie and The Good Wife.

“People were willing to give me opportunities to play different roles, and that’s something I was afforded for a very long time. And that’s something that a lot of people aren’t afforded; it’s not cool. It’s unfortunate,” he said.

Scott added, “[Ginny & Georgia] is created by women — not just for women, but to tell the stories of powerful women and powerful young girls and just allowing that story to be on full display. Talking with Brianne [Howey]. … She can do anything, she could play anything. And she just needs to be afforded that opportunity. And going forward, Tony [Antonia Gentry] and the rest of our young cast, like, I don’t believe that there’s anything they can’t do. So I want them to have that same opportunity. Those stories need to be told, they deserve to be told, and we have so many talented actors of different races and different genders.”

The actor said he’s “very aware” that he’s been lucky to be picky about the kind of roles he accepts.

“I’m fortunate that I never got pigeonholed 100 percent,” Scott shared. “Maybe I never played a role big enough, where somebody would only think of me in that role for the rest of my career. I tested for Captain America once upon a time, and I would have loved to have done that, but that’s a daunting challenge all on its own. So I’ve just been very fortunate. I think acting is a part of my life. It’s not all of my life. I think approaching it from that angle for me has also allowed me to kind of come in and out of projects that have different slices of who I am in them.”

Jonah Hill Says He's Finally Comfortable Going Shirtless in Public at 37

Jonah Hill Says He's Finally Comfortable Going Shirtless in Public at 37

Jonah Hill is opening up about how he finally learned to “love and accept” himself and how he’s now comfortable going shirtless in public.

The 37-year-old Oscar-nominated actor was spotted going surfing at the beach on Thursday (Februar 25) in Malibu, Calif.

Jonah took to Instagram the next day and reposted the paparazzi photos that were first shared online by Daily Mail.

“I don’t think I ever took my shirt off in a pool until I was in my mid 30s even in front of family and friends. Probably would have happened sooner if my childhood insecurities weren’t exacerbated by years of public mockery about my body by press and interviewers. So the idea that the media tries to play me by stalking me while surfing and printing photos like this and it can’t phase me anymore is dope,” Jonah wrote in the post,

He continued, “I’m 37 and finally love and accept myself. This isn’t a ‘good for me’ post. And it’s definitely not a ‘feel bad for me post.’ It’s for the the kids who don’t take their shirt off at the pool. Have fun. You’re wonderful and awesome and perfect. All my love. Oh and Daily Mail, not even you can take that smile from my face ;).”

Jonah was spotted filming a new movie a couple months ago in Boston.

Rachel Lindsay Deletes Instagram Amid Ongoing 'Bachelor' Controversy

Rachel Lindsay Deletes Instagram Amid Ongoing 'Bachelor' Controversy

Rachel Lindsay is stepping away from social media due to harassment from Bachelor Nation.

The former Bachelorette has disabled her Instagram account amid the ongoing discussion regarding racism surrounding the show and Chris Harrison exiting the franchise after a series of controversial remarks.

Rachel’s Higher Learning podcast co-host Van Lathan addressed her departure from social media in a video posted to his Instagram.

“She did it because that’s how much hate she’s getting from Bachelor fans who are spamming her with all kinds of rude and hateful things to say,” he shared.

“Y’all have got to get a f–king life. Seriously,” Van added.

Earlier this month, Rachel interviewed host Chris Harrison and they had a 14-minute conversation about current The Bachelor contestant Rachael Kirkconnell and the backlash over her past racist behavior.

Chris defended Rachael‘s decision to attend an “antebellum plantation themed ball” in 2018 and undermined points Rachel was making throughout the discussion.

He apologized on Instagram for his remarks and later said that he would be stepping away from the franchise.

Rachel also announced that she would be leaving Bachelor Nation as soon as her contract was over in a recent episode of her podcast.

Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick Says She & Her Husband 'Never Have Sex'

Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick Says She & Her Husband 'Never Have Sex'

Angelina Pivarnick is getting real about her marriage to Chris Larangeira!

The 34-year-old reality star revealed in the season finale of Jersey Shore Family Vacation that she and her husband rarely have sex.

“Unfortunately, Chris and I did not have sex, and there was no sex on the real wedding night either,” Angelina said. “Maybe on the redo, we’ll finally have sex. Probably not but I’m just saying. Yeah, it’s probably not going to happen. It never happens anyway. We never have sex.”

The pair married at the Park Château Estate & Gardens in East Brunswick, New Jersey in 2019 after two years of dating.

The wedding, which aired during the season three finale, was quite the dramatic event. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese each insulted Angelina during their speeches at the reception.

While Deena was able to resolve her issues with Angelina in season four, JWoww and Angelina have had a harder time moving on.

Snooki revealed in a confessional during the episode that the confrontation at Angelina‘s wedding was ultimately what caused her to leave the show.
