      Celebrities had mixed feelings about the Fourth of July this year. Following the overturning of Roe v. Wade last month, many stars shared a post by the user @bitton that reads, "4th of July has been canceled due to a shortage of Independence. Sincerely, Women." Bette Midler, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and J. Smith-Cameron are among those who shared the post.

      The Eyes of Tammy Faye actress Jessica Chastain posted a photo of herself sticking both her middle fingers up to Twitter on Monday (July 4th). "Happy ‘Independence' Day from me and my reproductive rights," she captioned the post.

      Zooey Deschanel shared a photo of herself in a shirt that said, "Pro Roe," and wrote, "For when you want to wish America a happy birthday, but also want her to do better." Padma Lakshmi showed off a red, white, and blue cake that had "Separate Church & State" written in frosting on top of it.

      Those celebrating the holiday as usual included Emma Roberts, Denise Richards, Mark Hamill, Sofia Vergara, and Candace Cameron Bure. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared a video of himself with his daughter, Jazzy, showing fans how to make "The Mana Spritz." He wrote in the caption, "HAPPY 4TH from The Johnson family."


      Amber Heard's attorneys have filed a motion calling for the verdict in Johnny Depp's defamation trial to be thrown out.

      In the memorandum submitted to the Fairfax County Circuit Court on Friday (July 1st), the Aquaman actress' attorneys argue that Depp did not provide evidence of actual malice or defamation. Instead, they state that he "proceeded solely on a defamation by implication theory, abandoning any claims that Ms. Heard's statements were actually false."

      Additionally, the document includes a request to investigate "improper juror service." Heard's lawyers claim one of the jurors listed their birth year as 1945, whereas "publicly available information" shows they were born in 1970.

      "This discrepancy raises the question whether Juror 15 actually received a summons for jury duty and was properly vetted by the court to serve on the jury," Heard's attorneys said.

      In response to this filing, one of Depp's lawyers said it is "what they expected, just longer, no more substantive."


      Seven months after sharing that she was engaged to Bader Shammas, Freaky Friday star Lindsay Lohan posted to Instagram revealing that she was a married woman. On Saturday (July 2nd), Lohan celebrated her 36th birthday by posting a photo of herself with Shammas.

      The Mean Girls actress continued, "I am stunned that you are my husband. My life and my everything. every woman should feel like this everyday." When exactly the couple tied the knot remains unclear.


      On Monday (July 4th), Rachel Brosnahan took to Twitter to address the tragic shooting that took place during a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois. "I grew up in Highland Park and this parade is a highlight of the year for so many families," the Marvelous Life of Mrs. Maisel actress wrote.

      Brosnahan continued, "I'm sick to my stomach every time news like this comes out, but I don't wish the pit in your stomach as you call your family and friends to make sure everyone is okay on anyone."

      In her Instagram stories, the House of Cards actress shared more. "I grew up in Highland Park and spent nearly every day after school and every weekend being stupid with friends directly across from where today's shooting occurred. I never once considered that I be unsafe there," she wrote.

      Brosnahan added, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. We have lost our minds. My heart is broken for the families in Highland Park affected by today's shooting."
