First Dibs: Did John Mayer And Katy Perry Break Up Over Her Weight?

Which hottie from The Host is officially off the market? How did Ryan Gosling become a motorcycle maniac for The Place Beyond The Pines? And in sadder news, the cast of the Harry Potter films says goodbye to one of their own. All this in today’s First Dibs.

  • Harry Potter actor Richard Giffiths has passed away at the age of 65. The actor was best known for playing Harry’s muggle uncle Vernon Dursley in the popular fantasy films, but was also a heralded star of stage and screen in the UK. He is survived by his wife Heather Gibson. [Sky News]
  • Before you see The Host this weekend and develop a crush on cutie Jake Abel, be warned that he’s officially off the market. Abel just revealed that proposed to longtime girlfriend, Allie Woods, during New Year’s Eve in New York City. [US Magazine]
  • Ryan Gosling might look like a biking badass in his new film The Place Beyond The Pines, but the journey to get there was surprisingly…uh…lame. Because Gosling is so famous, insurance companies needed to see footage of him doing stunts at insanely slow speeds before letting him do the same stunt at slightly less slow speeds. [MTV News]
