CLAIRE FOY DISMISSES NOTION THAT ADAM SANDLER OVERSTEPPED BOUNDS: The Crown actress Claire Foy is dismissing rumors that Adam Sandler made her feel uncomfortable during a taping of a British talk show because he touched her knee. "We don't believe anything was intended by Adam's gesture, and it has caused no offense to Claire," her rep said in a statement. Sandler has come under fire since The Graham Norton Show aired Friday night. One fan on Twitter wrote, "Claire Foy replacing Adam Sandler's hand onto his own knee rather than hers, was the perfect 'haha dont touch me again' move #GrahamNorton." Do you think people are overreacting or are you guessing Foy was actually miffed? (Page Six)

REPORT: ROSE MCGOWAN OFFERED $1M IN HARVEY WEINSTEIN HUSH MONEY: Rose McGowan claims that a member of Harvey Weinstein's inner circle offered her $1 million to stay quiet about the sexual assault allegations she and more than 80 other actresses slapped him with. She tells The New York Times that she briefly considered it and countered with a request for $6 million, but that she changed her mind. "I had all these people I'm paying telling me to take it so that I could fund my art," McGowan, 44, told the Times in a interview published Saturday. "But I was like - ew, gross, you're disgusting, I don't want your money, that would make me feel disgusting." The Times later published an expose on Weinstein that has essentially ended his career in Hollywood. (The New York Times)

JIMMY KIMMEL TO TARGET HARVEY WEINSTEIN AT OSCARS? Jimmy Kimmel is already planning to roast Harvey Weinstein at next year's Oscars, but he will use a light touch, considering the sensitive nature of the allegations, he tells New York Magazine. "It's not really a laughing matter," the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host says. "There'll be a lot of people in that room who maybe have been through experiences with him, and that's not something I want them to relive on the night they get their Oscar." He also responded to critics who say he should have discussed Weinstein on his show more: "I have no interest in protecting Harvey Weinstein. Hopefully, he will get what he deserves and we'll all move on with our lives." (Vulture)
