ABC/Bob D'Amico(LOS ANGELES) -- After nearly 15 years as the lead of ABC's Grey's Anatomy, Ellen Pompeo will now be the highest-paid woman in TV. Her new deal has her making $575,000 per episode, or $20 million per year.

"I'm 48 now, so I've finally gotten to the place where I'm OK asking for what I deserve," she tells The Hollywood Reporter. "The truth is, anybody can be good on a show season one and two. Can you be good 14 years later? Now, that's a f*****g skill."

Pompeo also spoke about how Patrick Dempsey leaving the show in 2015 helped put her in a more powerful position.

"They could always use him as leverage against me -- 'We don't need you; we have Patrick' -- which they did for years," she says. "So, what does it look like when he leaves the show? First, it looks like a ratings spike, and I had a nice chuckle about that"

But then, Pompeo continues, "The ink wasn't even dry on his exit papers before they rushed in a new guy. I was on vacation...and they're calling me, going, 'What do you think of this guy?' 'What do you think of this guy?...I couldn't believe how fast the studio and the network felt like they had to get a penis in there."

Ultimately, Pompeo credits Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes for her new deal. 

"I was always loyal to her, and she responds well to loyalty," says the actress. "So, she got to a place where she was so empowered that she was generous with her power." 

Pompeo thanks Rhimes for "letting me be the highest-paid woman on television, letting me be a producer on this show...and signing off on the...unprecedented...deal that the studio gave me."

FX(NEW YORK) -- Following in the footsteps of the highly-rated and award-winning The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, producer Ryan Murphy returns to FX with the network's second ACS season, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

Inspired by actual events, as its name suggests, Assassination centers on the murder of the world famous designer, which was perpetrated by Andrew Cunanan, a con man and brutal spree killer who murdered Versace after four others before taking his own life.

Glee veteran Darren Criss plays the killer, while actor Edgar Ramirez is nearly unrecognizable as his final victim; Penelope Cruz plays Gianni's equally famous sister Donatella Versace.

Cunanan was a cipher, an alleged gay gigolo who scammed wealthy men and ingratiated himself into various elite social circles. Cunanan became the subject of a nationwide manhunt that landed him on the FBI's Most Wanted List before he fatally shot himself on July 23rd, 1997.

Criss tells ABC Radio that calling Cunanan a multilayered character is an understatement. "He was such a chameleonic liar that you just -- we just don't know what's true or what's not." 

"I'm in the business of empathy...feelings, and psychology. So getting to get your hands on somebody who had such a massive array of emotions...that were so close to being the best of us, but were just 'off' enough to be the other side of that? That's fascinating."

Criss tells ABC Radio, that the project is very different than Murphy's O.J. series. "Ryan always joked he just had to get out of a beige courtroom...This is a very vibrant, operatic story...This ... takes place all over the country. I mean, it's a manhunt, it's a road movie..."

The series kicks off Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.

(L-R) Marc and Mike Sorrentino - Photo by David Becker/WireImage(NEW JERSEY) -- Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has pleaded guilty in a New Jersey court to tax evasion charges.

Both Sitch and his brother Marc copped pleas in connection with allegedly hiding nearly nine million dollars' worth of earnings made by the reality star between 2010 and 2012, according to TMZ.

According to a court filing, obtained by ABC News, the Sorrentino brothers made a deal with the U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey that would help them avoid a trial, which was supposed to start in three weeks.

Mike was said to have been facing 15 years if found guilty in a trial; his brother, who acted as his manager, was facing 20. It remains to be seen what their punishment will be, or exactly to which charges they pleaded.

Meanwhile, Sitch is set to return with most of his former roommates for Jersey Shore Family Vacation, which will shoot in Miami this year.

ABC/Image Group LA(LOS ANGELES) -- Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Hall, Selena Gomez’s co-stars in the upcoming Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York, announced this week that they would be donating their salaries from the film to Time’s Up and other charities.  Now, it seems that Selena has done the same.

A source close to the actress tells People that Selena has, in fact, already “made a significant donation anonymously” to Time’s Up that “far exceeded her salary for the film.”

Selena has yet to make a public statement against Allen, who has been accused of molesting his daughter Dylan Farrow, a claim which he denies.

Selena was asked by Billboard last November if she considered the director’s past before signing on to the movie.

“To be honest, I’m not sure how to answer -- not because I’m trying to back away from it,” she said. “[The Harvey Weinstein allegations] actually happened right after I had started [on the movie]. They popped up in the midst of it. And that’s something, yes, I had to face and discuss. I stepped back and thought, ‘Wow, the universe works in interesting ways.’”

As previously reported, Selena's mom Mandy Teefey told a fan on Instagram that she'd tried to warn the singer about appearing in Allen's film.

Teefey wrote, "No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click...No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”

Photo by Daniel Zuchnik/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Congratulations are in order for Carrie Coon and her husband Tracy Letts -- the couple is expecting their first child together.

"It's true!" the 36-year-old Fargo actress tweeted on Tuesday, confirming a story reported by Us Weekly earlier in the day. Coons included a link to the article.

No further details, including a due date, were released.

Coon landed a nomination for best actress in a movie/miniseries at this year's Critics' Choice Awards for her role as Gloria Burgle in the FX series, and took home best actress in a drama series honors in 2016 for her role in HBO's The Leftovers.

Coon and Letts, 52, can both be seen in Steven Spielberg's The Post, now playing in theaters nationwide. Letts also stars alongside Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf in the 2018 Golden Globes winner for best picture, Lady Bird.

The couple met while working at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, where Tracy debuted his 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, August: Osage County. They tied the knot in 2013.

Peter Kramer/NBC/NBC NewsWire via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Former Today anchor and NBC News correspondent Ann Curry spoke out Wednesday morning about her former co-host Matt Lauer, saying she was "not surprised" by the allegations against him.

Lauer was abruptly fired last year following allegedly inappropriate sexual behavior.

In an interview on CBS This Morning, Curry said she did not want to "do harm" or cause more "pain," but she address the atmosphere at NBC News she said she experienced while working there.

"I can tell you that I am not surprised by the allegations," she said of Lauer. "I can [also] say that I would be surprised if many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed...It was verbal sexual harassment."

Curry added, "We clearly are waking up to a reality and injustice that's occurred for some time."

Curry left Today in 2012 abruptly, after a year as a co-anchor and 15 years with the show. In 2015, she left NBC News for good and is currently promoting her PBS docuseries, We'll Meet Again.

When Lauer's termination from NBC News was first announced in November, Curry wouldn't speak specifically about it, but did tell People magazine at the time, "I'm still really processing it."

She also said she admired all women who have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, saying they "need to...be able to thrive without fear."

After his November termination, Lauer, 60, expressed his regret in a statement, saying in part, "Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed."

ABC/Heidi Gutman(LOS ANGELES) -- Alec Baldwin is defending Woody Allen as a spate of actors and actress have come out to express their regret about working with the director, who has been accused of molesting his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, a claim which he has denied.

 "Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose," Baldwin wrote in the first of two tweets Tuesday. "But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career."

Baldwin's tweets came after actor Timothee Chalamet, the breakout star of Call Me by Your Name,  announced on Instagram that he was donating his salary from his role in Allen's most recent film, A Rainy Day in New York, to charities that fight sexual abuse and harassment.

Chalamet was the latest star to speak out after Dylan Farrow penned an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times questioning why the #MeToo movement has seemingly spared Allen.

Baldwin cautioned that such accusations should be "treated carefully."

"Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so," he tweeted.

In 2014, Farrow wrote an op-ed piece in The New York Times, in which she told the story of how Allen allegedly sexually assaulted her at age 7.

Allen has consistently denied the abuse allegation, maintaining his ex-partner and Farrow's mother, actress Mia Farrow, coached their daughter into making the claims. The director was investigated on child molestation claims for the alleged 1992 incident in Connecticut, but prosecutors elected not to charge him.

Allen's representatives did not respond to ABC News' requests for comment.

Dylan Farrow will give her first televised interview on the matter on CBS This Morning on Thursday. 

According to a preview released by CBS, Farrow tells Gayle King, "I am credible, and I am telling the truth, and I think it’s important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters. And that they are enough to change things."

ABC/Heidi Gutman (NEW YORK) -- Matt Damon came under fire in December for suggesting that all men accused of sexual misconduct shouldn't be lumped together in the same category, and he used a Tuesday appearance on the Today show to deliver an apology.

"Boy, I really wish I'd listened a lot more before I weighed in on this," he began.

When host Today co-host Kathie Lee Gifford insisted the Downsizing star was a good listener, he responded with, "Not in this case."

"I think, ultimately, what it is for me is I don't want to further anybody's pain with anything that I do or say," Damon continued. "So for that, I'm really sorry. This whole Times Up [movement], a lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing and want to be a part of that change and go along for that ride."

"I should get in the backseat and close my mouth for a while," he added.

In addition to making headlines for all the wrong reasons, Damon's last three big screen outings, Downsizing, Suburbicon, and The Great Wall, all stumbled at the box office.

The actor, who starred alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt in the 2001 remake of Ocean's 11, and its sequels in 2004 and 2007, will reprise his role as Linus Caldwell in the female-centric Oceans 8, opening nationwide in June.

Photo by David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Selena Gomez’s mom reportedly advised her against working with Woody Allen on the upcoming film A Rainy Day in New York, but her concerns fell on “deaf ears.”

As seen in a screen grab of an exchange on Instagram, a fan messaged Selena's mom Mandy Teefey on her production company’s account, and suggested that Selena should “write an apology” for working with Allen.

Teefey responded, "Sorry, no one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click.”

She added, “Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.”

Two of Selena’s co-stars on the film, Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Hall, have already donated their salaries to Time’s Up and other organizations. 

Allen has been accused of molesting his daughter, Dylan Farrow, though he denies the claims. 

This is the second time Teefey has spoken out about her daughter in the past few days. Her Woody Allen comments come after she spoke to Gossip Cop, telling the website that while she is “not happy” Selena is dating Justin Bieber again, she realizes her daughter, “can live her life however she wants as long as she is happy, safe and healthy.”

Chuck Hodes/Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- Gabourey Sidibe says she's set on making 2018 about her health and wellness.

In a recent tweet, the Empire actress revealed she's planning to take this year off to recover from having her tonsils removed.

“I’ve decided to get a tonsillectomy and I deserve to take all of 2018 off as personal time to rest from this huge adult decision I just made,” Sidibe wrote. “Please respect my privacy at this time.”

Although it is uncertain if Sidibe will actually take the entire year off to recover from her procedure, fans of the actress wished her will.

"Bless your heart!!!!" wrote one fan. "Baby girl I got mine out 3 years ago and you will DEFINITELY need MONTHS to recover. This surgery s NO JOKE on Adults. I'll be praying for your speedy recovery and healing."

Another shared his experience, "Had mine out at age 42, now 49. Hurts like hell, for a good 70-90 days. But now, I’m rarely sick, and my previous fall allergies are almost non-existent now. Best of luck, and fight through it, knowing it’s 'better on the other side.' #icecream :)"

This is not the first major surgery for Sidibe. In 2016, Gabby underwent weight loss surgery, and shared the experience in her memoir, This Is Just My Face: Try Not to Stare.

“It has taken me years to realize that what I was born with is all beautiful,” she wrote, that was excerpted by People. “I did not get this surgery to be beautiful. I did it so I can walk around comfortably in heels. I want to do a cartwheel. I want not to be in pain every time I walk up a flight of stairs.”

Timothée Chalamet in "Lady Bird"/Photo: Merie Wallace/A24(LOS ANGELES) -- Timothee Chalamet, the breakout star of Call Me By Your Name, has announced that he will be donating his salary from his role in the upcoming Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to various charity organizations, including Time’s Up.

In a statement posted to Instagram, the actor, who also appears in Lady Bird, says that he’s realized “a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job.” He says this has become clearer to him in the past few months, “having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence.”

Chalamet says he has been asked in recent interviews about his decision to work on the yet-to-be-released  film, which was shot last summer.

“I’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations,” he says. “But what I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN [Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network].”

He concludes, “I want to worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

Chalamet follows his A Rainy Day in New York co-star Rebecca Hall, who also donated her salary to Time’s Up. The film also stars Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning and Jude Law.

In recent weeks, Mira Sorvino, Greta Gerwig and David Krumholtz have expressed their regret over working with Allen as well.

Allen has been accused of molesting his daughter, Dylan Farrow, a claim which he has denied.

Robert Cianflone/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken to Twitter to praise his onscreen daughter Eliza Dushku, who revealed she was sexually assaulted as a 12-year-old while she worked on their film True Lies.

Dushku claims that then-36-year-old stunt coordinator Joel Kramer, who was responsible for her safety on the movie, "lured" her to his hotel room, and eventually "sexually molested" her on a bed.

Afterward, she reportedly told a friend, who confronted Kramer.  But later, Dushku says, she broke some ribs during a botched stunt, "by no small coincidence," she commented.

Kramer, a veteran of dozens of movies, vehemently denied the charges.

In response to their co-star Tom Arnold's tweet that the cast and writer/director James Cameron would have done something if they knew what allegedly happened, Schwarzenegger replied, "You bet your a** we would have done something."

Arnold added, "I’m shocked and saddened for Eliza but I am also proud of her - beyond being a great talent and an amazing woman, she is so courageous."

Speaking at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, Cameron praised Dushku, saying, "It's just heartbreaking that it happened to her," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cameron added, "This was happening under our noses and we didn't know about it -- I think going forward, it's important for all industries ... to create a safe avenue for people to speak up." 

"Had I known about it, there would have been no mercy," said Cameron. "Now especially, I have daughters. There's really no mercy now."

Jamie Lee Curtis also weighed in, via an essay in the Huffington Post. Mentioning that Dushku only told her about the abuse a few years ago, Curtis said, in part, "Eliza's story has now awakened us from our denial slumber to a new, horrific reality. The abuse of children."
