Russell Crowe admits that he considered the idea of Scientology after spending time with Tom Cruise. The Oscar winner opens up about the experience in the new issue of People.

He tells the magazine, "From a young kid, I was quite interested in religion. When I met Tom Cruise when he was married to Nicole Kidman, we were spending a bit of time together so I thought I'd find out a little bit about what he was into. I found a video in the video store about Scientology and I watched it. It wasn't that informative. But I brought it up with Tom and I thought he was really cool. He didn't try to sell me a pair of shoes. He just said, 'If it's something that interests you, you'll pursue it.' And I think that happens with any kind of religion if you come to it by your own discovery." Russell continues, "I never ended up putting my two cents down on anybody's table. I've never graced Scientology's doorway."

Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner are attempting to do some damage control after giving an interview where they referred to the character of Black Widow as a "slut" and a "whore." The actors made the comments after being asked about Scarlett Johansson's character hooking up with the Hulk in the Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Chris released a statement on Thursday (April 23rd) saying, "Yesterday we were asked about the rumors that Black Widow wanted to be in a relationship with both Hawkeye and Captain America. We answered in a very juvenile and offensive way that rightfully angered some fans. I regret it and sincerely apologize."

  • Jeremy also addressed the situation saying, "I am sorry that this tasteless joke about a fictional character offended anyone. It was not meant to be serious in any way. Just poking fun during an exhausting and tedious press tour."
  • Their original comments were attacked on social media for being offensive and misogynistic.

Three more women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. According to The Huffington Post, the three women are being represented by Gloria Allred. Allred held a press conference yesterday (April 23rd) with Janice Baker Kinney, Marchella Tate and Autumn Burns.

Kinney has claimed that Cosby assaulted her in May 1982 when she was 24 and working as a bartender at Harrah's Hotel and Casino in Reno, Nevada. She has claimed that Cosby invited her to a party, but when she got there, there were only three people in attendance. She claimed that after the game of backgammon, Cosby gave her two pills and she passed out. When she came to, she was on a couch with her jeans unzipped and blouse opened and Cosby put his hand in her blouse. She woke up again the next morning naked in Cosby's bed and he allegedly told her, "This is between me and you."

Tate has claimed that Cosby assaulted her in 1975 while she was working as a model in Chicago. They met through a mutual friend at a club and one day she agreed to pick him up from the airport and drop him of at the Playboy mansion. He invited her inside and offered her a glass of wine. The next thing she remembers is waking up in bed with Cosby, who was naked. She said in a statement, "I knew that I was in a sexual situation. I never intended to be in that situation...but because I was barely conscious and felt drugged, I was unable to do anything to get out of it."

  • The third victim, Burns said that she was assaulted by Cosby in 1970 when she was 20. She was working as a model and a game started at the Sahara hotel in Las Vegas. After spending some time with Bill, he offered to help her to find acting and modeling work. One night, he invited her back to his room and gave her a drink -- and asked her to come to the bedroom.
  • She said in a statement, "I started feeling woozy and not in control. ... He told me to sit on the edge of the bed. When I did he grabbed me by the back of my neck and stuck his erect penis down my throat. I remember my head was being pounded up and down and then he lifted me on top of him and had sex with me. When he was done I knew I had to leave the room and get home. I felt like everyone on the casino floor was staring at me and had known what happened."
  • This brings the total number of women accusing Cosby of sexual assault to 38.

Kim Richards was apparently not ready to face down her demons while taping her interview with Dr. Phil. Daily Mail is reporting that the reality star stormed out of their chat at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills when she felt it was turning into an intervention.

She had three of her children with her -- 29-year-old Brooke, 22-year-old Chad, and 20-year-old Kimberly. A witness reportedly overheard Chad reveal that his mother is struggling with pills and pot on top of her relapse with alcohol. Another witness revealed, "The children urged their mom to return to the interview, but she wouldn't budge. Kim was furious. She had a complete melt down."

  • Kim ultimately returned to the interview and said she would consider the idea of rehab after speaking to her life-coach and doctor.

  • The interview airs on Tuesday (April 28th.)

ADAM SANDLER NETFLIX FILM SLAMMED AS OFFENSIVE TO NATIVE AMERICANS: Some of the Native American actors who were hired to work on Adam Sandler's new western comedy, Ridiculous 6, have publicly slammed the project for being offensive to their community. Actor Loren Anthony told the Native & American Indian News, "I was asked a long time ago to do some work on this and I wasn't down for it. Then they told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist. So I agreed to it, but on Monday things started getting weird on the set. We were supposed to be Apache, but it was really stereotypical and we did not look Apache at all. We looked more like Comanche. One thing that really offended a lot of people was that there was a female character called Beaver's Breath. One character says, 'Hey, Beaver's Breath.' And the Native woman says, 'How did you know my name?' They just treated us as if we should just be on the side. When we did speak with the main director, he was trying to say the disrespect was not intentional and this was a comedy." Netflix responded with their own statement which read, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."

JOHN OLIVER SAYS PEOPLE IN THE UK CARE LESS ABOUT THE ROYAL BABY THAN THE WORLD: Kate Middleton's upcoming baby is apparently not such a huge deal in the U.K. Last Week Tonight host John Oliver claims that other countries tend to make a bigger deal about royal babies than they do in England. He explained to Page Six, "I don't care. I think people around the world care more about royal babies than British people do. It's one of the only things we produce of international value anymore. It shows how far our empire has collapsed that people tend to look at us whenever members of the royal family are born, die or get married."
