E! NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Murphy Breaks Silence

E! NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Murphy Breaks Silence on Naya Rivera and Lea Michele Rumors: The Guys Feuded, Too

See more of what Murphy has to say about Feud and Glee in the video above, and on E! News tonight at 7 and 11 pm!
Mark your calendars: Season 10 of FX's Feud may center on Glee stars Lea Michele and Naya Rivera.
At least, that's what co-creator Ryan Murphy joked to E! News while sitting down for an exclusive interview about his latest soon-to-be smash hit anthology series, premiering March 5
In case you missed it, rumors ran rampant in the later seasons of Glee that there was a deep and fiery divide between Lea and Naya—which Naya addressed in her book.  
When asked whether he'd ever consider doing a Feud season on the Glee starlets, Murphy talked about the Naya and Lea rumors for the first time, telling E! News:
"I feel like in the case of that show [Glee], that show was just a s--tstorm of difficulty, largely because, what do you do when you're 18 years old or 19 years old and you wake up one day and you're world famous? I think a lot of that was informed by their youth and being involved in a phenomenon. And I know for a fact that they [Lea and Naya] admired each other's work, ‘cause I directed them both in scenes. I don't think I would take on Lea and Naya. I think for a feud to work on this show, it has to have decades of pain behind it. But if they're still feuding at 40, I might consider it. I'll call them up in a couple years."
Then he dropped this little unknown fact: "There were many boys on our show that didn't get along. And you never hear about that. You never hear about that in our culture."
Well, consider this the first printing (#equality?). Murphy didn't name any names, but did mention that the male Glee feuds were plentiful, and also said he also hopes to bring the Glee cast back together someday for some kind of TV reunion.
Feud: Bette and Joan is the most anticipated new series of the year and for good reason. Not only is it the latest anthology gem from Murphy, who most recently brought you The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and American Horror Story, but it's clearly impeccably cast with Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange, and is surprisingly relevant, even five decades later. The eight-episode miniseries digs deep into the bias against women in Hollywood, particularly over the age of 40, and why the press and public seem so incessantly fascinated by two women tearing each other apart.
"We're talking about very modern themes looking back at a historic event," Murphy explains. "We kind of did that with [The People v.] O.J. [Simpson]. I was never really interested in O.J. I was never really interested in the murder. I was interested in sexism and racism with Marcia[Clark] and also with O.J. happening two years after the L.A. riots. And Feud is the same thing.Feud is looking back at this fabled, bitchy fight but what you realize is there was literally 50 years of pain going into it."

E! NEWS EXCLUSIVE: How Emma Stone (Recap)

E! NEWS EXCLUSIVE: How Emma Stone Celebrated Her 2017 SAG Awards Win

For complete SAG Awards coverage, watch E! News Monday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. And don't miss the Fashion Police 2017 SAG Awards special Monday, Jan. 30 at 8 p.m., only on E!
Emma Stone hit another high note at the 2017 SAG Awards.

The La La Land star's winning streak continued Sunday night when she won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, beating Arrival's Amy AdamsThe Girl on the Train's Emily BluntJackie's Natalie Portman and Florence Foster JenkinsMeryl Streep. As the 28-year-old actress confessed to E! News' Zuri Hall backstage, "It's pretty crazy!"
During her acceptance speech, the adorably flustered winner told the audience, "Wow. To be an actor, playing an actor, and receiving an actor by a guild of actors—it's pretty exceptional."
"Oh, they're counting me down," she said. "I have forgotten everything I have ever thought in my life." After thanking co-star Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle, Emma said, "I just wanted to say: I feel insecure a lot of the time. And feeling I deserve anything like this requires a bit of mental gymnastics. Getting to be a part—even a tiny, tiny part—of a group of people that cares about reflecting society and bringing people joy and making them laugh and giving people hope, or—God, I know I have to wrap up. I feel like I'm going to faint. We're in a tricky time in the world and our country. Things are inexcusable and scary and need action. I'm so grateful to be part of a group of people that cares and wants to reflect things back to society."
Speaking to reporters backstage, Emma elaborated on her speech. "We have to speak up against injustice, and we have to kick some ass. We have to speak up," she said. "Staying silent only helps the oppressor, not the victim. Right now I hope that people seeing things that are being done that are unconstitutional and inhumane would say something. I would hope that people would fight for what's right, and what's just f--king human. What's f--king human."

Emma opted to skip the star-studded after-parties to spend time with her brother, SpencerStone, and friends who were staying in her hotel room. "We've got a big group of people," she told E! News. "And I'm just gonna go back and be with them, because they're just the greatest."
The 2017 Oscars are weeks away, and Portman, Stone and Streep will once again compete in the Best Actress category—this time alongside Elle's Isabelle Huppert and Loving's Ruth Negga.
Award season has taken its toll on Emma, who's excited to get back in front of the camera when it's all over. "I'm going to work on a movie really soon, so I'm very excited for that," she told E! News. "It's called The Favorite. It's by Yorgos Lanthimos—written and directed by him."

"I'm really looking forward to it," Emma added. "It'll be in fun. I'm going to be in in London!"

Mila Kunis Steps Out with Ashton Kutcher

E! NEWS Out and about and all smiles! Mila Kunis was spotted out for the first time since giving birth to her second child, a baby boy named Dimitri Portwood Kutcher, on Nov. 30. E! News exclusively revealed that the former That ‘70s Show actress welcomed the little one last week and the proud mama appeared to be happier than ever during a stroll with husband E onlineAshton Kutcher. The two held hands as they walked down a residential street near Los Angeles with neither their newborn son nor their daughter Wyatt in tow. Shortly after the birth of their baby boy, the married couple and former co-stars released the following statement on Kutcher's website: "We'd like to allow our kids to make their own choices on whether to have a life in the public eye or not. We don't want to make the choice for them." The site also revealed that baby Dimitri arrived at 1:21 a.m. and weighed in at 8 pounds and 15 ounces. And now with their new family of four, it seems like the Kutchers have an extra special reason to be smiling (and to be celebrating the upcoming holiday season!). Kutcher and Kunis became engaged back in February 2014 and then married in July of the following year in front of friends and family at a picturesque ranch just outside of Los Angeles. The two welcomed their first child in October 2014. Congratulations once again to the Kutcher family on their latest arrival!
