Scoop. Plus poop.
Some Hollywoodites are cranky. Their crank is Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell’s nonpartisan get-out-the-vote TV special, which was to have big names, young and old, big and little, tall and short, sober or smashed.
They pulled in some names, but allegedly rumoredly possibly, they think VIPs who didn’t answer texts or calls just “ghosted.” Plus, they humph, after this ABC live comedy feed, “VOMO: Vote or Miss Out” hosts did little to help get out the vote. That means what? Kevin and Will should’ve hung on Sunset and distributed Vote for Gore buttons?
Also. Democrats can’t use the Senate gym in DC. It’s true. Why? Odor? No. Because Republicans won’t wear a mask.
ONWARD. Due to heavy election arguments, here’s light reading that I’ve handpicked and gathered from yon, thither and someplace:
When Russell Crowe added big time weight, friends called him the Gladi-eater.
This, who knows, but this I read: Brad Pitt likes chameleons?!
Chloë Sevigny: “Doing a love scene you often think about how cold you are. It’s not very romantic.”
Jon Bon Jovi: “Love scenes are technical. You apply your experience. And I’ve had some practice over the years.”
Julianne Moore: “When a love scene is directed, it’s like a choreographer working with two dancers.”
Dermot Mulroney: “Doing a love scene can be really weird. It’s a strange but pleasant way to spend the afternoon.”
Drew Barrymore’s allergic to garlic, perfume and coffee.
Keanu Reeves is a crossword fanatic.
DiCaprio — then 14 — was dumped by his first love after one kiss. Cecilia, the dumper, has said: “It was just a short dry peck and it felt weird.”
Madonna: “I’ve been writing a screenplay for 100 years. It’s very funny. I keep starting it then I get distracted and put it away.”
At the Mark Hopkins in San Francisco, Sean Connery went to the Top of the Mark for a martini. He knocked off one then the house special: A “007 martini made with Stoli Gold, Vya vermouth and two olives. Shaken, not stirred.”
Tom Cruise in his “Vanilla Sky” film where he was the only person walking around a completely empty Times Square “was not computer generated. We shut down 40 blocks.”
Bruce Willis playing cards one long ago Atlantic City night scooped up a multi-thousand-buck payout. Then, set up a doughnut eating contest. Scarfing down eight, the winner was awarded $500.
Angelina Jolie: “As a baby I had large lips but not a large head. Now if I have to kiss someone with a small mouth it looks like I’m devouring them.”
Winona Ryder was trashed at Kenilworth Junior High because, in her old Salvation Army jacket “I looked like a boy. Years later one of those who hurt me wanted an autograph. I said to her, ‘Go f - - k yourself.’ ”
Cher: “I had my nose, teeth and breasts reshaped. I’m the plastic surgery poster girl. Everybody over 50 needs a little help.”
Robert Redford: “People told me I’m getting wrinkled. They think they can stay pretty forever. So what if my face is falling apart. Some come out of surgeries looking scary to me. It’s an obsession. I don’t give a damn.”
United, we vote
PARTING shot: 1860. Election Day.

AUCTION house exec: “Whoever’s elected faces a term of four years . . . do I hear five years?”
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
