They’ve been there from the beginning, and now they have matching ink to make their connection in protecting the world, or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, permanent.

“She and (Chris) Evans did it in New York. Then their New York guy, Josh Lord, who is amazing, flew out to LA, he did me, did (Jeremy) Renner, and then we just bullied (Chris) Hemsworth into doing it, and he got it,” Downey told Entertainment Weekly.

The only one not to be part of the tattoo group was Mark Ruffalo. 

But the there was a sixth person in the tattoo chair -- the artist himself -- who had each of the five Avengers stars make a line on his version of the stylized Avengers symbol.

“Each of us contributed to giving the tattoo artist the sixth tattoo that he designed for us. By the way, he’s got another one on him that Scarlett did, which is beautiful, which is crazy, because the line she drew on him, which was supposed to be a straight line, looked like a lightning bolt. It was a mess,” Downey told Entertainment Weekly.

The “Avengers” cast isn’t the only one to get the same ink after filming was complete. The cast of “The Lord of the Rings” also got matching tattoos more than 10 years ago of the number nine written in elvish. Even Sir Ian McKellen and Sean Bean got into the act, to mark the end of the epic trilogy, Entertainment Weekly reported.

“Avengers: Infinity War” has made more than $1 billion in theaters so far, The Washington Post reported

Kevin Hart's former friend charged with extortion in sex tape threats

The man who allegedly tried to extort Kevin Hart by threatening to release a sex tape last year has been charged and is facing a maximum sentence of four years in jail.

Jonathan Todd Jackson, 41, was charged on Wednesday “with trying to coerce actor Kevin Hart to pay him for a video that was surreptitiously recorded last year,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Jackson, who also goes by Action Jackson, according to the D.A., was charged with one count each of attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter. He is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.

“Jackson is accused of trying to extort an undisclosed amount of money from Hart between Aug. 25 and Aug. 30, 2017,” the D.A. announced. “Jackson allegedly had a videotape of the actor with a woman in Las Vegas and then is accused of trying to sell the recording to numerous celebrity news websites.”

Prosecutors are recommending bail be set at $100,000, and if convicted, Jackson faces a max sentence of four years in county jail.

Last year, Hart apologized to his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish, and his two children in a social media video, revealing that someone was allegedly trying to extort him for a sexually suggestive video. The FBI was reportedly investigating the alleged extortion attempt.

“I’m guilty, regardless of how it happened and what was involved, the (expletive) that I can’t talk about, I’m guilty. I’m wrong,” Hart said in an interview with the Power 105.1 FM show The Breakfast Club. “It’s beyond irresponsible. There’s no way around it. That’s Kevin Hart in his dumbest moment. That’s not the finest hour of my life. With that being said, you make your bed you lay in it.”

At the time, model Montia Sabbag came forward at a press conference, identifying herself as the woman involved with Hart and saying, “I am not an extortionist. I had nothing to do with these recordings.”

“I did not know he was married,” model Sabbag told Daily Mail TV in 2017. “I found out after we already had been together. So I did not know at first.”

She added, “The way he was acting didn’t seem like he was married.”

MoviePass brings back movie-a-day monthly plan

MoviePass, a subscription-based movie ticketing service, is bringing back its popular movie ticket per day subscription plan.

Wired reported that the company made the decision two weeks after the offer was removed from its website. The plan allows customers to see a movie a day each day for $9.95 a month.

“We never planned to abandon the flagship product that everybody loves,” MoviePass CEO Mitch Lowe said in an interview, according to Variety. “Any time we’ve done a promotional package, we’ve taken the monthly plan off our site.”

The promotional package that led to the removal of the plan was a $29.95 three-month plan that allowed viewers to see four movies a month. That promo began April 13. It also offered a free trial of an on-demand music streaming package.

“It’s marketing 101,” Lowe said. “We wanted to focus everybody on this partnership promotion. If people knew the (movie-a-day) plan was coming back, they might not be interested in the (music streaming) deal.”

Despite the plan’s popularity, the company has added some stipulations. It will no longer allow users to see the same movie twice under the plan. According to Lowe, the rule change is to prevent fraud among customers who share one card among family members or scalp tickets.

According to the MoviePass website, over 2 million people are subscribed to the service.

Gabrielle Union: Diagnosed with PTSD after rape doesn't define her life

Gabrielle UnionKristen BellJames Van Der Beek and Brittany Snow are among a group of celebrities opening up about their struggles with mental health or learning disorders.

For the second annual installment of The Child Mind Institute’s #MyYoungerSelf social media campaign, the organization once again brought together more than three dozen actors, Olympians, authors, comedians, advocates and other influencers to share the advice they would give their younger selves about growing up with a a major affliction.

“I’m here to tell you that I am a PTSD survivor, thriver,” Union says in a homemade video. “I was diagnosed with PTSD at 19 after I was raped at gunpoint — and I didn’t let it stop me. I didn’t want it to define my whole life, and it doesn’t have to. Asking for help, needing help doesn’t make you weak or less worthy of love or support or success.”

She adds, “You can literally be anything you want to be. PTSD isn’t a death sentence. You don’t have to be alone or feel isolated. There are so many of us out there who are feeling with exactly what you’re dealing with and it doesn’t make you weak. It doesn’t make you anything but human.”

Bell, who’s suffered from anxiety and/or depression since she was 18, said she would advise her younger self not to “be fooled by this game of perfection humans play, because Instagram and magazines and TV shows, they strive for a certain aesthetic and everything looks so beautiful.

“People seem like they don’t have any problems but everyone’s human,” she adds.

“Everyone has problems,” she continues. “Everyone feels yucky on the inside sometimes. You deserve to feel just as beautiful on the days you wear no makeup, the days you don’t shower and the days you feel like you’re depressed. And you have an obligation to take care of yourself from the inside out because that’s how you can truly feel beautiful.”

Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz, who heads up the Child Mind Institute campaign, says having stars like Bell and Union talk so honestly about their struggles is impactful for kids.

“By sharing their own personal stories for the second annual #MyYoungerSelf campaign, these actors, athletes, authors and influencers are helping to eradicate the stigma that keeps the 1 in 5 young people who struggle with a mental health or learning disorder from getting help and reaching their potential,” he explained.

“We all know and love these children — if it’s not your son or daughter, it’s a niece or a nephew, or your child’s best friend at school. #MyYoungerSelf represents our society, whether you’re famous or not, coming together to get these kids the help they need.”

For the month of May, which is National Mental Health Awareness Month, the Child Mind Institute will reveal a homemade video and childhood photo featuring a celebrity or mental health advocate, including Lindsey Stirling, Ginger Zee, Charles Schwab, Jessica McCabe, Tim Howard and Adam Grabowski.
