  • Tom Holland, 27, and Zendaya, 27, were spotted having a romantic stroll in London and the young couple engaged in some steamy PDA.

  • On Saturday, Rihanna, 35, stepped out for a date night with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, 35. While having a romantic outing in the Big Apple, the “Work” singer was spotted wearing a diamond ring on *that* special finger, fueling engagement rumors.

  • The first glimpse photos of Angelina Jolie’s biopic titled Maria were revealed. In the official pictures (shared by A Fremantle Company), the 48-year-old actress looks nearly unrecognizable as she takes on the role of the late opera singer.
