Ryan Murphy will be honored at amfAR’s sixth annual Inspiration Gala, to be held Oct. 29 at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.
The “American Horror Story” creator will be feted with the Award of Inspiration, in recognition of his achievement in film and television and his commitment to the fight against AIDS. Among his many projects, Murphy also exec produced HBO’s “The Normal Heart,” an adaptation of Larry Kramer’s play depicting the AIDS crisis in 1980s New York.
“Everything about it was very personal for me,” he told Variety about making the movie. “I had lost a lot of friends growing up. I was of the generation that was coming of age when AIDS struck, so I also felt it was such a seminal piece of work that I wanted to get it right.”
Gwyneth Paltrow will be back to host the benefit, which raises money for AIDS research. »

The film has no official release date yet, but there's a decent chance it might be March 6, 2016 - Mother's Day next year - in the UK. »
Taylor Swift has had over 50 (yes, 50!) special guests on her stage during the 1989 world tour. At this point it's getting to be sort of a running joke, so much so that a parody video has already made its rounds on the Internet. At times, the guests have been such an appropriate addition to the show - we're sure we won't find one person who has a problem with Justin Timberlake's surprise appearance in La. At other times, though, we've scratched our heads trying to figure out why - like when Joan Baez and Julia Roberts danced it out to "Shake It Off." In the spirit of the heaps and heaps of guests, we've decided to organize them in the only way that makes sense: in order of randomness. Here's every single guest, ranked from most to least random. »
Jack Whitehall has landed a lead role in 'Mother's Day'. The 27-year-old British comedian - known for his posh accent and quick witt - has bagged his second big movie role opposite Julia Roberts, 47 and Jennifer Aniston, 47, in director Garry Marshall's latest romantic-comedy. He told The Sun newspaper: ''To be working with such great people will be exciting and nerve-racking in equal measure, but director Garry Marshall is a Hollywood legend so I couldn't be in better hands. Slated for release in 2016, Jack's character is a young father from Atlanta and the heavily female cast - which includes Kate Hudson, Helen Mirren and Jennifer Connolly - will tell the tale of a group of mothers ahead of the inaugral celebration. Meanwhile, the 'Bad Education' actor - whose TV series got made into a film - says he likes to push the boundaries of comedy and recalled a »
Well, after a top secret wedding ceremony and honeymoon in Bora Bora, it's back to work as usual for Jennifer Aniston. The newlywed, who recently returned from her whirlwind festivities with her new hubby Justin Theroux, was spotted on the set of her upcoming romantic comedy Mother's Day—which also stars Jason Sudeikis, Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson—earlier today. Aniston was casually dressed in a pink tank top, blue pants and tan heels while shooting at a local Sprouts Farmers Market. Theroux, however, went back to work fairly quickly after returning from his honeymoon, heading straight to Austin to shoot his HBO series The Leftovers. But he did manage to spill on what it's like to finally be »
Justin Timberlake. Lisa Kudrow. Jason Derulo. Mariska Hargitay. Julia Roberts. The Weeknd. What do these celebrities have in common? If you said they are all stars of the Alf reboot we're writing for Netflix, you're right! But also, they've all appeared on Taylor Swift's 1989 world tour as special guests, meaning they are now part of an elite crew that folks like to call "Taylor's Squad." The best part about Taylor's cameo-o-rama is that no one can predict who will join her onstage to walk the catwalk or to perform a duet with her. One night it's Lisa Kudrow singing "Smelly Cat" from her Friends days, and the next night Fetty Wap is bringing down the house with "Trap Queen." »
In Trainwreck, Tilda Swinton steals every scene she’s in as Dianna, the editor of a crude men’s magazine and boss to Amy Schumer’s semi-autobiographical character. When the film premiered last month, many expressed surprise upon learning that it was actually Swinton — she’s virtually unrecognizable in the role. Seeing it, I was reminded of her equally stellar turn in another train-related movie: as Minister Mason in last summer’s Snowpiercer. I still haven’t forgiven the Academy for failing to recognize Swinton’s work in that film — and, incredibly, she might never have had the opportunity to play the role in the first place. In Snowpiercer‘s source material, the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, Minister Mason was a male character; but when Swinton expressed interest in the film, director Bong Joon Ho gender-flipped the role so that she could play it.
The move represents but one marker in a growing trend. »

Not only has the sheer amount of guests invited onto the stage for Taylor Swift's current 1989 tour been overwhelming, but things hit a new level when people like Julia Roberts and Joan Baez - not exactly recognizable to much of Swift's demographic - were invited on stage. Comedian Lara Marie Schoenhals used the subject for her gut-busting parody video, "Please welcome to the stage . . . ," in which she as Swift invites other random guests to the stage. Try not to cry real tears of laughter while she welcomes people such as the "51 victims of Bill Cosby," "My two best friends, Gigi Hadid and the Blair Witch!" and "Samara from The Ring!" As Schoenhals says, "What do you think of that, La?!" »

Taylor Swift has been bringing what seems like all of Hollywood on stage with her during her 1989 world tour, but her guest at Monday night's show at the Staples Center in La definitely takes the cake. During her performance of "Style," Taylor made the crowd go wild when she introduced none other than Ellen DeGeneres. The singer told the crowd, "Los Angeles, please make some noise for international pop superstar, Ellen DeGeneres." The talk-show host then made her way on stage where she strutted her stuff in a sparkly outfit almost identical to Taylor's. The two women then sang the rest of the song and hugged it out in front of the sold-out stadium. Ellen is just the latest A-lister who has shared the stage with Taylor. In addition to cute cameos by Julia Roberts, Uzo Aduba, Gigi Hadid, and Lorde, Taylor has also had Matt LeBlanc, Kobe Bryant, and Lena Dunham join her. »
