Jude Law was shocked to find out he’d gotten model Samantha Burke pregnant with his fourth child – he thought she was on the Pill, it has been claimed.

“Jude assumed she was on the Pill,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “He was stunned at being informed of the pregnancy. Jude feels like now he has been made to look the bad guy. One of the reasons their brief relationship didn’t work out is because Samantha was a little too keen.

She claimed she was falling in love after just a couple of weeks.”

Megan Fox will be playing the She-Hulk.

A source said: “‘She-Hulk’ comics are popular so it’s only natural that the character makes the transition to the big screen.

Megan Fox has a nice body, I admit this, but she does NOT have a Hulkish body. This will not work and I hope it’s not set in stone.
