Although she’s become known around the world as the butt-kicking Katniss Everdeen, Lawrence says she wants to take on a slightly different role. “I want to be Bridget Jones,” she told the magazine. We totally see it! Maybe a Bridget Jones prequel is in order? It’ll be weird seeing Jennifer do a movie without a bow, but we’ll have to deal.
Whitney Houston’s former husband R&B legend Bobby Brown has just been arrested this afternoon in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence. Cops are telling TMZ that the singer was pulled over in Reseda, CA at 12:20 PM for talking on the cell phone, and was then given a field sobriety test. He is being held at a jail in Van Nuys, but his associates are reportedly making moves to bail him out. It’s unknown at this time what substance he was taking at the time of the arrest. This is the 43-year-old’s second DUI offense. He was arrested back in 1996 and spent 8 days in a Georgia jail.
It’s been a rough time for the Brown family in the wake of Whitney’s passing. Daughter Bobbi Kristina was hospitalized for anxiety in the days following, and now she’s rumored to be romantically linked (and possibly engaged) to her adopted brother, Nick Gordon. Could the strain of the past few weeks pushed Bobby to relapse into more of his well documented drug abuse? This arrest comes four days after Whitney’s toxicology report revealed drugs in her system. Might that news have lead to a bender? More details to follow…
After the comedown from a weekend filled with Mad Men and Hunger Games premieres, this Monday was starting to look pretty bleak. But then, like a gift from the entertainment heavens, came this clip of Ice-T’s wife Coco whacking TV host Andy Cohen with her butt. Oh joyous day! The model and star of Ice Loves Coco appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live to discuss the supreme court ruling on healthcare. Just kidding, she was there to talk about her butt. And of course she also tried to tell it apart from pictures of her boobs (it’s harder than it sounds).
But don’t think the interview was just an excuse for gratuitous booty shots. We learned some vital facts about Coco, too! When Andy asked her what part of her body she was most shy about, she responded as only Coco can. “I don’t have a shy part. No, I’m an exhibitionist!” Ya think? She also admitted that the craziest place she’s ever had sex was in the car…while Ice was driving. Maybe that’s why Ice got pulled over the other day? Hmmm…

We were kind of wondering why the producers of Mad Men are on their third Bobby Draper. But now we finally have a, err, “taste” of what these kids had to deal with. Apparently their TV mom January Jones ate her own placenta as an extra special energy boost on set! We’re not trying to be insensitive, but it’s gotta be pretty hard for a kid to get into the scene with that going on nearby.
The actress reportedly had a hard time returning to work only a few weeks after giving birth to her son, Xander. So her doula (or labor coach) came to the rescue by prescribing an unusual remedy. “I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation,” January told People magazine. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witchcrafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms.” Check out the gallery below for more strange celebrity tips for staying youthful, energetic and beautiful! Spoiler alert: there’s more placenta.
Move over Star Wars, Harry Potter, and even Twilight (gasp): there’s a new record breaking film franchise in town! The first installment of The Hunger Games series opened this weekend to rapturous reviews and once-in-a-lifetime sales figures. When we broke down the numbers last week, the film was expected to pull in the still-huge amount of $125 million. But the saga ended up breaking records for a springtime opening, taking in an incredible $155 million in North America alone over the weekend. When you factor in the $59.25 million it took in overseas, that brings the total to a staggering $214 million! Not bad for an $80 million dollar price tag.
The spring record was previously held by Tim Burton’s 3-D reboot of Alice In Wonderland back in 2010, which clocked in at $119 million for its first weekend. But those figures could be considered a little inflated when you consider that ticket prices for a 3-D movie are higher than one in plain old cinemascope, which makes The Hunger Games performance over the weekend even more remarkable.
It was seen by some a risky move to open the series in March, instead of saving it for the more traditional blockbuster seasons of the summer and December. But obviously those people underestimated the draw of the Games. “If a movie looks intriguing, customers will show up, no matter what the calendar reads,” BoxOffice.com editor Phil Contrinotold The New York Times. It also proves that with Harry Potter already history, and Twilight heading towards its November finale, THG will certainly pick up the slack as the next massive movie franchise. Let the games begin!

Fellow Disney alum Ashley Tisdale also tweeted a spring break bikini pic, but this one ain’t for a movie. The actress showed off her cheeky side/monster wedgie as she posed on the beach. At least we think it’s her. We guess there’s no real way to tell. Someone call the dude who play Ryan in High School Musical! Maybe he knows. Anyway, check them out in the gallery below, and then vote in our poll for which Disney babe has the hottest twitpic!
It’s here! The return of Mad Men after two long years is practically being hailed as television’s second coming, and VH1 News was there at the premiere to get the inside scoop from the cast. Fans of the show know that the last season ended with one of the biggest WTF cliff-hangers of all time. So what can we expect from season five? We asked the stars to sum up the new series in one word, and their answers were everything we could hope for!
“Shocking. Surprising. Some sort of ‘S’ word,” said Jon Hamm, while Jared Harris went straight to the heart of the matter by offering “amazeballs.” Well said, sir! January Jonesgot surprisingly shy when asked to sum up season five. “I can’t! If I think of one word, I feel like it’ll give it away,” she laughed. But eventually she settled on “suspense.” But the final word belongs to John Slattery, who plays office renegade Roger Sterling. “Two words … surprising and satisfying.” Technically he broke the rules, but we’ll take it.
The return of Mad Men is so close we can smell it, and it smells like Lucky Strikes and Canadian Club. The record busting series has made its stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Christina Hendricks and Elisabeth Moss the hottest names in television. But the show also features some already-familiar faces. Community‘s Alison Brie has a recurring role as Trudy Campbell, while former House regular Anne Dudek often appears as Betty Draper’s gossipy neighbor Francine. Tom Hanks‘ son Colin, The Nanny star Charles Shaughnessy, and even Secret World of Alex Mack actress Larisa Oleynik are among the many who’ve taken smaller roles on the series over the years.
First Russell Brand, and now this!? George Clooney has been arrested at a Washington DC protest concerning the crisis in Sudan. “They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children,” the actor’s rep told TMZ. “They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.” Clooney had assembled with other demonstrators outside the Sudanese embassy when federal agents carted him off. Reportedly a dozen other high ranking figures were also arrested, including a congressman, human rights leaders and even George’s father, Nick! The story is still breaking, but stay tuned for what’s sure to be one of the hottest mugshots of all time.
After years opening up about everything from her body issues, drug use, love life and the many benefits of orgasms, Lady Gaga is calling it quits. Mama Monster is now keeping her lips sealed, refusing to give any more interviews to the press. The big announcement comes in her taped interview for Oprah’s Next Chapter, which was filmed at her childhood home in New York City. Giving an interview to announce that you’re not giving any more interviews? How very Michael Lohan.
“Other than this interview, Oprah, I do not intend to speak to anyone for a very long time,” she says in the preview for the episode, which airs in full this Sunday at 9 PM. “No press, no television, if my mom calls and says, ‘Did you hear about …’ I shut it all off … I don’t read a damn thing.” And so continues her descent into Prince-like eccentricity/insanity.
