Candice Bergen is embracing her curvy new body! The 68-year-old actress is opening up about her weight in her new memoir, "A Fine Romance." (excerpted by "Today"). "Let me just come right out and say it: I am fat," she declares. "In the past 15 years ... I have put on 30 pounds." "I live to eat," the "Murphy Brown" star adds.

The model-turned-actress goes on to compare her own eating habits to those of her "skinny friends," calling out the unhealthy practices some woman have used to stay slim.

He may be adored for his portrayal of Hawkeye the wisecracking doctor in Mash, but Alan Alda has a second passion: science. Which is why he has written a play, Radiance, about the hounding of Marie Curie
Alan Alda works from an office in midtown Manhattan, around the corner from Grand Central station and in the shadow of the Chrysler Building. “It’s funny,” he says, looking up at the skyscraper while waiting for a cab. “I come here every day and I never saw it from this angle before.”
The veteran actor, now 79, is used to approaching things from unusual angles – it is what he has been doing, forcefully, for most of his career: taking the lessons learned from one area of expertise and applying them to another. So it is that, having just finished appearing nightly on Broadway, opposite Candice Bergen in Love Letters, Alda now has a »

It takes a special formula to make an awesome Saturday Night Live host. The person in question must be funny, yes, but also incredibly magnetic and likable. The gig is a lot harder than people think, but some stars make it seem like a walk in the park.
Everyone from Britney Spears to Josh Hutcherson has hosted SNL, but what celebrities reign supreme as the ultimate masters? Well, take a break from watching VH1 Classic‘s “SNL Rewind: 2015- 1975 Mega Marathon,” and find out which 10 candidates make cut. (Of course, it includes human beer bottle and general sunshine king Justin Timberlake.)
Alec Baldwin has hosted the show a whopping 16 times—the most ever—and became a member of the prestigious Five-Timers Club in 1994. Some of Baldwin’s best skits include “NPR’s Delicious Dish with Pete Schweddy” (1998), “Brenda the Waitress” (1990), and »

Being unabashedly trashy can be pretty entertaining, and Lifetime takes the plunge — a little too deeply in places — with “Beautiful & Twisted.” A ripped-from-the-headlines tale of sex and murder, this fact-based story about the comicbook-loving heir to a hotel fortune who married, and was murdered by, a stripper, is produced by and stars Rob Lowe. But it’s Paz Vega’s turn as a beyond-soap-opera femme fatale that should have people buzzing. Seemingly cognizant of its camp qualities, the movie finally can’t sustain its initial energy, and the violence proves needlessly graphic. Not that those shortcomings will detract from its ratings appeal.
Lowe plays Ben Novack Jr., who grew up surrounded by the opulence provided by his family’s ownership of Miami Beach’s Fountainebleau Hotel, and narrates his own sordid tale from beyond the grave. Like many a rich man (especially in Lifetime movies), he’s undone by an alluring woman — in this case, »

On the heels of her second Golden Globe win and fifth Academy Award nomination, Julianne Moore, flanked by her husband and two children, sat back and soaked up the Museum of the Moving Image’s salute in her honor.
“You know when you’re young, you’ll pursue things without any knowledge of where they’ll lead, and not knowing how they’ll shape your life,” Moore professed to the crowd. “But because this is a retrospective, it’s forcing me to look back and consider what it was that led me here. A lot of it was luck, (and) it was almost certainly my interest in story.”
The 29th annual Mmi Salute served as a monument to her own story.
The event came at a time of change for the museum, which in 10 days will welcome Sony Pictures Classics founder and co-president Michael Barker into the co-chairman role previously assumed by Herbert S. »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »
