So the guy who delivered pizzas at the oscars sunday night was on Ellens show yesterday. She finally tipped him. $1,000 bucks!!! She collected $600-from the stars in that big hat and then took out another 400-bucks to round it up. The guys name is Edgar and he says he thought he was delivering to a group of writers at the Dolby Theater… he was backstage, told to wait with the stack of pizzas in his hand. Eleen walks up and says are they hot? He says yes – she says ok – follow me. Ready? He’s like sure. He had no idea he was about to go on the stage with the world watching. He says the highlight was meeting Julia Roberts.

The father is a French journalist – they got engaged last September. There’s no word on Scarlett’s due date, but TMZ claims she’s FIVE MONTHS along, meaning she’s more than halfway to the finish line. She’s 29.
