LOS ANGELES – Dennis Quaid makes for a great Santa Claus.

Speaking to Fox News, the “Parent Trap” alum, 64, opened up about the first holiday gift he ever splurged on, revealing that the lavish present was actually for his ex-wife Meg Ryan.

“It was a car, an old Mercedes convertible,” Quaid shared on Thursday. “It was baby blue.”

The former couple — who fell in love as co-stars filming the 1988 movie “D.O.A.” — tied the knot in 1991 and had son, Jack, one year later. However, the pair eventually called it quits in June 2000.

As for why Quaid bought that specific car?

“She wanted one,” he explained, adding that “it was a surprise.”

This year, the Dennis Quaid and the Sharks frontman might not be gifting any cars to his loved ones, but his family and friends are still going to be in for a treat – his Christmas wrapping paper will have his face on it.

“It was very surprising [to see my face on the paper] actually,” Quaid — who is teaming up with Esurance’s “Surprisingly Painless Gifting” campaign, which is giving shoppers a free item from the “Fortitude” star’s collection starting on Monday — admitted with a laugh.

“It’s got to make you feel a little good, but it’s wallpaper in my house," he teased.

When it comes to his holiday plans, Quaid says he’ll be taking a trip to Hawaii, but on December 25th, he’ll be celebrating right at home.

“That’s where I’d like to be. Right at home on Christmas Day.”

Julia Roberts shares how a bathroom encounter made her realize she was famous: ‘This is different’

Julia Roberts has revealed the first time she realized the extent of her fame — but the setting wasn’t so glam!

According to the 51-year-old actress, she was 21-years-old and in a bathroom stall in Georgia when she experienced the memorable encounter.

“I went home to Georgia to visit my mom and my younger sister and we went to the movies,” Roberts shared during Monday’s episode of The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast.

“It was after the movie was over and I was in the bathroom and there was a woman in the bathroom who said, ‘Hey girl in stall number one, were you in 'Mystic Pizza'?’”

Roberts confirmed she was indeed the actress in the 1988 film — a response which was met with the fan sliding “something under the stall,” and asking for an autograph.

“‘Uh, not right now,’” the "Ben Is Back" star responded.

She continued, explaining that in that moment, she was awakened to her notoriety. “I thought, 'Wait, this is different.'”

Woody Allen’s alleged former lover claims affair started when she was 16

A former model says she was 16 when she started sleeping with Woody Allen, and later had threesomes with the Hollywood filmmaker and Mia Farrow.

Babi Christina Engelhardt told The Hollywood Reporter Monday she was 16 and an aspiring model in 1976 when she was approached by Allen, then 41 and not yet involved with Farrow, at hotspot Elaine’s in New York. The starstruck teen scribbled her phone number on a note for Allen, which allegedly resulted in an eight-year affair.

Soon after the first encounter, Allen allegedly invited Engelhardt to his swanky Fifth Avenue apartment, where she admitted to still being in high school and living in New Jersey while pursuing a modeling career in New York City. Engelhardt claimed the relationship quickly became physical, which Allen reportedly kept secret from his friends. The age of consent in New York is 17.

The pair reportedly agreed not to discuss his work and they only met at his place.

“I was a pleaser, agreeable,” Engelhardt recalled. “Knowing he was a director, I didn’t argue. I was coming from a place of devotion. … The curtains were always drawn. The view must have been spectacular. I wasn’t there for the view.”

Engelhardt also claimed that after a year, Allen started to bring in two other “beautiful young ladies” for threesomes. Then, four years after they started sleeping together, Allen introduced Engelhardt to his “girlfriend,” actress Mia Farrow.

Farrow was 14 years older than her at the time and already famous for 1968’s “Rosemary’s Baby” and 1974’s “The Great Gatsby.”

Engelhardt insisted she was shocked by the admission because she always viewed herself as Allen’s girlfriend. Still, she later engaged in threesomes with both Allen and Farrow because she was afraid of losing him.

Reps for Allen, 83, and Farrow, 73, did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment, and did not give comments to The Hollywood Reporter for its story.

“I felt sick,” said Engelhardt. I didn’t want to be there at all, and yet I couldn’t find the courage to get up and leave. To leave would mean an end to all of this. Looking back now, that’s exactly what I needed, but back then, the idea of not having Woody in my life at all terrified me. So I sat there, patiently, calmly trying to assess the situation, trying to understand why he wanted the two of us to meet.”

Engelhardt said she grew to like the Hollywood actress over the course of the “handful” three-way sex sessions at Allen’s penthouse as they smoked joints and bonded over their love of animals and astrology.

“There were times the three of us were together, and it was actually great fun,” said Engelhardt. “We enjoyed each other when we were in the moment. She was beautiful and sweet, he was charming and alluring, and I was sexy and becoming more and more sophisticated in this game. It wasn’t until after it was done when I really had time to think of how twisted it was when we were together… and how I was a little more than a plaything.

“While we were together, the whole thing was a game that was being operated solely by Woody so we never quite knew where we stood. I used to think this was a form of mother-father with the two of them. To me, that whole relationship was very Freudian: how I admired them, how he’d already broken me in, how I let that be all right.”

As for Farrow, Engelhardt explained, “I always had the impression that she was doing this because he wanted it.”

Engelhardt added that when news broke of Allen’s relationship with Farrow’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn (now his wife of nearly 21 years), she said she “felt sorry for Mia.”

“I thought, ‘Didn’t Woody have enough ‘extra’ with or without her, that the last thing he had to do was to go for something that was totally hers?” she said. “He had groomed Mia, trained her, to put up with all of this. Now he has no barriers. It was total disrespect.”

Engelhardt believed her alleged affair with Allen may have inspired 1979’s “Manhattan,” which starred Mariel Hemingway as Allen’s 17-year-old love interest. However, she noted Hemingway’s character may have been a composite of numerous young women Allen may have been seeing.

Stacey Nelkin, who dated Allen while a student as Stuyvesant, claimed Hemingway’s Tracy was based on her.

“It puts all the dots together,” said Engelhardt. “It made me realize that I was part of a pattern. I’d never been privy to his mind in that way.”

Engelhard last heard from Allen in 2001, when he sent her a letter thanking her for sending him a copy of a documentary she’d participating in about the making of Fellini’s last film, 1990’s “The Voice of the Moon.”

"I hope you're happy and well," Allen wrote. "I recall our times together fondly. If you're ever in New York I would love you to meet my wife — she'd like you. We get out to California every so often. If you'd like I'd call and perhaps we could all get together."

Scarlett Johansson was once slammed by fans on social media for defending Allen, for whom she starred in three films. (Reuters)

Engelhardt claimed she already had children then and her priorities were different.

“I just wanted to stay away from that,” she claimed.

Despite the shocking allegations, Engelhardt insisted she has no regrets about the affair. In fact, she has already written, and kept private, two volumes of unpublished memoirs focusing on her relationships and career.

“It’s almost as if I’m now expected to trash him,” said Engelhardt. “What made me speak is I thought I could provide a perspective. I’m not attacking Woody. This not ‘bring down this man.’ I’m talking about my love story. This made me who I am. I have no regrets.” 

Stephanie Pratt says ‘The Hills’ reboot is ‘a nightmare’

If you thought "The Hills" drama left when Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari did, you're wrong.

Stephanie Pratt actually thinks there's more drama in "The Hills: New Beginnings" than in the original MTV reality series.

"It was really fun at first, and now it’s like a nightmare," Pratt, 31, told Us Weekly of the reboot.

"There’s a big divide … You know, the stakes are a lot higher. We've got couples who are married with kids," she said. "It's not kind of just like, 'Oh, you cheated at the bar.' This is way more life-changing kind of stuff. I'm scared for everyone. And for myself. It's going to be gnarly."

Pratt will star in the series with her brother, Spencer, sister-in-law Heidi Montag, Justin Bobby Brescia, Brody Jenner and wife Kaitlynn Carter, Audrina Patridge, Whitney Port, Mischa Barton, Jason Wahler and Frankie Delgado.

Cavallari and Conrad declined to appear on the series, though Cavallari, who stars in her own reality show, "Very Cavallari," is hoping for a crossover episode.

"The Hills: New Beginnings" is slated to debut next year.

‘Big Bang Theory’ star Mayim Bialik gets emotional describing filming sitcom’s final season

It's no secret “The Big Bang Theory” actress Mayim Bialik wasn't thrilled about the CBS series coming to a close after Season 12 — and time to digest the news hasn't made things any less "emotional," Bialik says.

Bialik, who plays Amy Farrah Fowler on the show, recently described to In Touch what life has been like as she prepares to film the show's final episode next April.

“Every week kind of feels like, ‘This is the last time we’ll be doing this kind of script.’ It’s been such a long run, and so it’s kind of hard to imagine life after this," she admitted to the magazine, according to Closer Weekly, adding that she's been trying to "capture every moment."

'BIG BANG THEORY' TO END AFTER SEASON 12

In August, the 43-year-old actress publicly expressed online how devastated she was to give up her role.

“Am I happy? Of course not. This has been my job since Melissa Rauch and I joined the cast as regulars in Season 4. I love my job. I love my castmates, and I feel such appreciation for our incredible crew, our brave writers, our entire staff, and our amazing fans," she wrote on her personal website in August. "So many people are a part of our ‘Big Bang’ family,” she said. “This is hard. I love coming to work and pretending to be Amy. She’s a riot. She’s me, and I am her. And soon she will not be mine to create.”

“The Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco was just as surprised to find out the long-running comedy was ending after Season 12, telling Extra in September she "would have done 20 more years."

'BIG BANG THEORY' STAR KALEY CUOCO SAYS SHE WOULD STICK WITH THE SHOW FOR 20 YEARS, IS WILLING TO DO A SPINOFF

“I think we were all hoping for a giant ‘bazinga!’” she joked to the outlet.

While the cast will inevitably have to say goodbye to the show, Bialik said she won't be bidding farewell to her costars — as she plans to still keep in touch after the show ends.

“I can’t imagine that we wouldn’t [stay in touch]!” I actually had a dream that we all went hiking together, and I was telling everybody, ‘Why didn’t we do this before?'” she told In Touch.

She also discussed her special friendships with her colleagues.

“Melissa [Rauch] and I are probably closest. Jim [Parsons] as well. I’m Simon’s [Helberg’s] biggest fan, so I think it creeps him out that he’s the person I want to stay in touch with the most. I’ve known Johnny Galecki since we were 14, so we’ll be part of each other’s lives in some way," she added.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Jim Parsons may be the reason why the sitcom is ending. Parsons, who plays Sheldon Cooper, was reportedly ready to move on despite going into negotiations for another two seasons.

However, Parsons later posted an emotional statement on Instagram thanking everyone who has worked on the show. He didn't address any rumors about his potential part in the decision to end the series.

"I am so terribly grateful for the cast in this picture and the cast members who aren't pictured here- whether they were in one scene or many episodes along the way; you are all my playmates that I have fallen in love with," he wrote, in part.

"The Big Bang Theory," which first premiered in 2007, has earned 52 Emmy nominations and 10 wins during its run.

‘Wicked Tuna’ star William ‘Willbilly’ Hathaway dead at 36

"Wicked Tuna" star William "Willbilly" Hathaway died in a car crash Saturday, Fox News has learned. He was 36 years old.

Maryland State Police's Salisbury Barrack confirmed the reality star's death on Monday.

According to authorities, they responded to a call from a concerned citizen who saw a truck in a ditch.

Police said that Hathaway allegedly called his wife and said someone turned in front of him, forcing him to swerve into a ditch.

His wife told authorities she overheard him telling concerned passersby that he was OK. However, authorities found Williams not breathing and slumped over the center console when EMS services arrived. He was later pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

His airbags reportedly never deployed, according to local outlet WBOC16.

The Ocean City Fishing community shared a statement on Facebook regarding Hathaway's passing seeking donations to help support Hathaway's wife, Mary Malone Hathaway, and their daughter, Molly Jean.

"He was an exceptional human being whose passion was the sea. He always brightened the day of anyone he met," the statement read. "His wife and new born [sic] baby girl he was most proud of. Due to his untimely death we are asking for donations to help them stay on their feet while trying to survive this tragedy. Thank you in advance."

Hathaway's co-star, Nicholas "Duffy" Fudge, also died earlier this year.  Fudge died “unexpectedly” at age 28 in July.

Miley Cyrus’ wildest moments, from nearly nude Vanity Fair portrait to twerking with Robin Thicke

Miley Cyrus has been known to draw eyes with her risqué outfit choices and her bold dance moves.

The 26-year-old pop star — the daughter of famous singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus — has been making headlines since she was a teenager. In recent years, Cyrus has shattered her wholesome Disney Channel child star image and opted to forge her own path.

She has been open about her previous use of marijuana and alcohol and has discussed her special relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

MILEY CYRUS REVEALS SHE CALLS LIAM HEMSWORTH HER 'SURVIVAL PARTNER' INSTEAD OF FIANCE

Here's a look back at some of Cyrus' wildest moments.

“SNL” nip slip risk

Cyrus' daring outfit choice during her performance of "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" on "Saturday Night Live" with Mark Ronson in December turned heads. The singer was nearly topless — wearing an open silver jacket that exposed her chest.

Fans watched as the star swayed during the song, questioning how the jacket managed to stay in place.

MILEY CYRUS RISKS A NIP SLIP ON 'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE'

"Glue? Duct tape? What is happening?" one Twitter user asked.

"Me watching Miley Cyrus waiting for a wardrobe malfunction," another joked.

"NBC censors watching that #SNL Miley Cyrus performance be like…" one fan wrote, posting a GIF from "The Office."

VMA twerking session

Cyrus says her 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke changed her life "forever."

"Not only was culture changed, but my life and career were changed forever," Cyrus said in a March interview with Wonderland magazine, per Entertainment Tonight. "It inspired me to use my platform for something much bigger."

During the award show, Cyrus stripped into a nude bikini on stage, stuck her tongue out and twerked on Thicke as he sang "Blurred Lines." She also held a foam finger, making suggestive movements with it throughout the performance.

“Robin is pi-sed,” an inside source told Fox News at the time. “She was all over him, much more so than anything that was rehearsed.”

The performance sparked mixed reactions online, with some complaining about Cyrus' "disgusting" sexual gestures.

"They're overthinking it," Cyrus told the Hollywood Reporter in response to the negative feedback. "You're thinking about it more than I thought about it when I did it. I didn't even think about it, 'cause that's just me."

Mocking Lewinsky scandal

Cyrus shocked a crowd in Canada in 2014 when she brought a Bill Clinton impersonator on stage and dropped to her knees in an attempt to mock the former president's scandal with then White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

The singer simulated oral sex on the impersonator in front of fans during her debut concert for her "Bangerz" tour in February 2014, according to TMZ.

“Even though parents probably won’t think this, I think my show is educational for kids," Cyrus told HuffPost about the performance. “They’re going to be exposed to art most people don’t know about."

“Wrecking Ball” music video

Cyrus certainly "came in like a wrecking ball" in the music video for her hit song in 2013. The artist bared all, wearing nothing but brown boots in a portion of the video.

"I think the video is much more [than that]. If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds," Cyrus told Elvis Duran and the Morning Show after the video was released, according to E! News.

At the time, Cyrus described the video as portraying a "vulnerable" part of herself.

"For me, anything I do becomes it becomes such a big deal. I'm just having fun. Whatever people label it as it doesn't really matter. I always want to switch it up," she added.

MILEY CYRUS' 'WRECKING BALL' NIGHTMARE: 'I'M NEVER LIVING THAT DOWN'

Years later, Cyrus appeared to change her tune.

"That's something you can't take away. Swinging naked on a wrecking ball lives forever," she said on Westwood One’s "Zach Sang Show in May 2017. "Once you do that in the amass that I did, it's forever. I'm never living that down."

"I'm always the naked girl on the wrecking ball," she added. "I should have thought about how long that was going to have to follow me around."

2008 Vanity Fair shoot

Cyrus was criticized for posing in a racy portrait for renowned celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz which was featured in Vanity Fair in 2008 when she was just a teenager.

Following backlash for the near-nude picture, which showed the then 15-year-old Disney Channel star wrapped in a satin bedsheet, Cyrus issued an apology to fans.

"I took part in a photo shoot that was supposed to be 'artistic' and now, seeing the photographs and reading the story, I feel so embarrassed," Cyrus said in a statement. "I never intended for any of this to happen and I apologize to my fans who I care so deeply about."

The backlash even prompted Leibovitz to clarify artistic decisions she made during the shoot.

MILEY CYRUS SAYS VANITY FAIR PHOTO SPREAD EMBARASSES HER

"I'm sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted," Leibovitz said in a statement at the time. "Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful."

However, a decade later, Cyrus took back her apology for the Vanity Fair portrait in a profanity-laced tweet.

‘Real Housewives of Orange County’ alum Gretchen Rossi expecting first child with fiance Slade Smiley

Gretchen Rossi is going to be a mom!

After four years of trying to conceive through IVF, the 40-year-old "Real Housewives of Orange County" alum and her fiance, Slade Smiley, are expecting a baby. It was certainly a long process for the couple, who shared the happy news on Monday's episode of "The Doctors."

"After the first round of IVF, when we lost 14 embryos, I looked at Slade and I was like, 'I just need to take a pause,'" Rossi recalled. "This was beyond anything I had ever expected to experience. It literally took a good year and a half for us to even get to a point where I was willing to talk about it again."

For 45-year-old Smiley — who has two kids from a previous relationship — watching Rossi suffer was the hardest part of the whole process.

"The suffering for me comes from seeing my partner have to suffer," he said. "I wish that I could do more. I wish she wasn't the one that has to take all the shots. I wish I could take some of that from her."

What Rossi described as "an emotional journey," came to a happy end when, after being implanted about seven weeks ago, the IVF finally worked.

"Finally! We have news that we are pregnant!" Rossi exclaimed with tears in her eyes.

"And we're freaked out!" Smiley added. "But in a good way!"

Gretchen Rossi Says ‘Good News’ Is Coming After Years-Long Fight to Have a Child (Exclusive)

Rossi called the news "so wild" and admitted that "it still doesn't feel real." Smiley agreed, calling the baby news "a little surreal."

Despite suffering from morning sickness — "I swear they lie to you about morning sickness; it's all-day sickness. It's, like, the worst ever," Rossi said. — she called hearing her child's heartbeat for the first time "very exciting."

"All of this has been such an overwhelming journey and so when you get to those little milestones and you know you're hearing the heartbeat, it's so exciting, but it's also relief," Smiley said.

Even though the road was long and arduous, Rossi and Smiley have no doubt that they'd go through it all again if it ended with the same outcome.

"There were plenty of times during the process that we were like, 'Oh my gosh, is this ever going to happen? Is this ever going to come to fruition?'" Rossi said. "But I think that we're so very grateful because, had we not had IVF, we would not be sitting here right now telling you that we're pregnant."

"We feel so grateful for everything that's happened," Smiley added.

The sweet segment ended with Rossi shining a light on all of the women who are currently struggling with infertility.

"There's seven million women suffering with infertility and so many women are suffering in silence because they're embarrassed or it's too taboo of a topic for them," she said. "I want to be part of that dialogue where we're saying, 'No. It's OK to share this. It's OK to talk about this. It's not taboo.' And not to feel alone."

"I want the guys to man up and do their part," Smiley added.

Earlier this month, ET caught up with the couple at WE tv's "Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future" event, celebrating the return of the network’s series, "Love After Lockup," airing Fridays at 9 p.m. At the time, after what Rossi described as "trials and tribulations," she had just gone through the implantation and was hoping for "a Christmas miracle."

"It's been a long four years of going through a fertility journey with him, three rounds of IVF and we just finally got to do an implantation. So, we're praying and hoping for some good news soon. We're hoping for a Christmas miracle," she said. "But yeah, it's probably been one of the more arduous things I've ever been through… I really want people to know there's hope: you can do this, you can get through this. It's been a very trying, difficult time, but just keeping going for it."

Back in November, ET chatted with the couple, who, while "feeling very positive" about IVF, was certainly open to other ways to have a child.

“I read somewhere that a doctor said to a patient once, 'Do you want to have a child or do you want to be a mother?'” Rossi recalled at the time. “I think those are two very different sentiments, and I think at the end of the day, I have to trust that God knows what the journey is for us, and what is best for us, and whether that's a biological child, whether that's adopting a child, or if that's not having a child — whatever that course shapes up to be, I have to trust that the universe knows what's right for us, in our lives.”

“I would say probably I wouldn't stop at anything, but at the same time, there's a time where you have to go, 'OK. It's not meant to happen biologically," she added. "Maybe we should look into other options.”

For Smiley, he was simply "very proud" of Rossi for her decision to use her experiences "as an opportunity to educate and learn."

“The truth of the matter is, a lot of the time, when people are going through IVF, it's the guy, it's not the woman," he said. "Yet, they seem to suffer, they seem to be afraid to discuss it. So, I mean, it's been a pretty fascinating journey for us. It's been so educational. I just hope that our stories and what we've learned are helping other people.”

Alfonso Ribeiro from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is suing two gaming companies for allegedly using his famous Carlton Dance, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

Ribeiro alleges that Fortnite-maker Epic Games and NBA 2K Sports-creator Take-Two Interactive used his well-known dance without permission or credit.

“Epic has unfairly profited from exploiting Ribeiro’s protected creative expression and likeness and celebrity without his consent or authorization,” the lawsuit alleged, according to Deadline.

Ribeiro’s dance was popularized through his character, Carlton Banks, on the 1990s sitcom.

The North Carolina-based Epic Games and Delaware-based Take Two used his dance he first performed on a 1991 “Fresh Prince” episode, Ribeiro said.

He’s asking for a judge’s order to stop both games from using his moves.

Ribeiro said he is currently in the middle of copyrighting the dance.

Epic Games and Take Two spokesmen didn’t respond to requests for comment.
