Angelina Jolie managed to keep her double mastectomy a secret from February 2, when procedures started, through April 27, when they were completed, and all the way until May 14, when she revealed everything. But some stars have kept their secrets even longer: Radar lists 18 of them. Janet Jackson put a rest to rumors last year that she was engaged to Wissam Al Mana ... by revealing that they were already married. Liv Tyler was born Liv Rundgren and always thought Todd Rundgren was her biological father—but it was actually another rocker, Steven Tyler . Jack Nicholson found out—after »

"It seemed like something somebody would make up," author Nancy Jo Sales says on the phone from her New York home. "If you had pitched this as a movie, nobody would've bought it. It would've been too unbelievable." But the story of a bunch of young suburbanites who burglarized a string of celebrity homes in 2008 and '09 did happen. And somebody did buy it — director Sofia Coppola, whose upcoming film "The Bling Ring" (out June 14) is inspired by the Hollywood crime spree. It's also the subject of Sales' new book, likewise titled "The Bling Ring."
Coppola hired Sales as a consultant on the film after optioning her 2010 Vanity Fair article, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins." Realizing she had enough material on the case for a book, Sales started writing "The Bling Ring" last summer. It hits bookstores next week.

Looks like the Angelina Jolie leg has officially made its way to Cannes.

Kroes wore her hair in cascading curls to complement the keyhole cutout, revealing neckline and flashy pink sequins, looking fierce and feminine as she posed for the camera. The 66th annual Cannes Film Festival officially kicked off Wednesday with the »
Beyonce and Jay-z are expecting their second child together, E! reports, citing unnamed sources. The 31-year-old singer stoked speculation that she could be pregnant with baby No. 2 after canceling a tour date in Antwerp, Belgium, earlier this week because of "dehydration and exhaustion." Beyonce gave birth to the couple's firstborn, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012, spurring a media frenzy not seen since Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's twins arrived in July 2008. On May 6, the Grammy-winning diva walked the red carpet at the triple-vip, punk-themed Met Ball in New York City

In choosing, at least for now, not to have an oopherectomy, Jolie may have challenged medical advice – with justification
To understand just how brave Angelina Jolie is, consider what she did not write in her op-ed in The New York Times: her decision to have a mastectomy and forgo, at least for now, an oopherectomy (the removal of the ovaries), goes against common medical practice in the Us and, most likely, against most of the advice she received.
The mutation Jolie carries, a deletion on the BRCA1 gene, combined with a strong family history of cancer, correlates with an 87% risk of breast cancer and a 50% risk of ovarian cancer. Either cancer is likely to be very aggressive and lethal sooner rather than later. Breast cancer is, on average, likely to strike earlier than ovarian cancer.
A preventive mastectomy brings the risk of breast cancer down to between 2% and 5%, well below »

Washington, May 17: Angelina Jolie, who revealed on Tuesday that she had a double mastectomy and reconstruction in February, was determined to keep her family's lives as normal as possible during her difficult phase.
The 37-year-old actress managed to keep her surgeries a secret by refusing to make any changes to her or her six kids' busy schedules, News24 reported.
A source told People magazine that things appeared normal as the kids were in school during the day and were attending after-school activities as they always do.
The Oscar-winning actress also continued to make public appearances at events while. »

Many have spoken out in support of Angelina Jolie after the actress bravely revealed she underwent a preventive double mastectomy. And Natalie Portman's dad is no exception. Dr. Avner Hershlag, chief of the Center for Human Reproduction at North Shore Lij and father to the Black Swan actress, tells E! News he has the utmost respect for Brad Pitt's other half and also shares his own medical insight as Jolie continues the preemptive cancer treatment. "I feel a lot of adulation towards her announcement," Hershlag tells E! News. "She is doing so much service for so many women. Imagine a woman who did not know she should be tested. She sees Angelina's announcement, gets tested today »
Gravity trailer goes ‘bong!’ as George Clooney and Sandra Bullock go flying George Clooney and Sandra Bullock become the victims of an unfortunate incident while watching the sun rise. Skin cancer? Nope. Do they get mugged? Nope. What happens then? As you can see in the Gravity trailer below, following a loud Bong, Bam, Boom! Clooney and Bullock quite literally go flying. Something — was it a meteorite? Intergalactic debris? — has collided against their spacecraft (or space shuttle or whatever). See, they’re watching the sun "rise" from way up there. Check out the Gravity trailer below. (Photo: George Clooney in Gravity movie.) Gravity trailer: 2001: A Space Odyssey Meets Lost in Space Meets Apollo 13? The Gravity trailer, or rather, teaser, provides quite bit of action with minimal dialogue. It’s impossible to tell what kind of relationship (veteran astronaut) George Clooney and (medical engineer and tyro astronaut) Sandra Bullock share. »

Before Angelina Jolie was raising kids with Brad Pitt and writing powerful, conversation-changing op-eds in the New York Times about her preventive mastectomy, she was a teenager. A teenager who loved fencing and boxing.
BuzzFeed dug up this awesome old footage of teenage Angie discussing her boxing and fencing skills, and she is adorable. We learned that she boxed but never got in the ring because she didn't want to "get [her] teeth knocked out." Also, she "could never do team sports" and collected swords she found frequenting antique shops with her mom.
Aww, 16-year-old Angelina Jolie! How were we not friends?

The charity banquet season hits its peak at this time of year, and the crowded ballrooms remind us that there are people in town who worry less about making money than giving it away. They have reason to worry; philanthropy has become a perilous and competitive business.
David Geffen’s decision to donate $25 million for a David Geffen Theater at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures means that virtually every institution in Los Angeles has a David Geffen something. No one else matches Geffen’s philanthropic ubiquity, but almost every star these days has his or her own foundation, from Kobe Bryant to Ben Stiller.
The major talent agencies each have specialists in what they call “philanthropy branding” — an intimidating term in itself. Some stars like Sean Penn and Angelina Jolie talk more about what they’re giving than who they’re playing. Bono is no longer a performer, he’s a cause. »

Angelina Jolie has an offer that she may likely refuse.

Angelina Jolie is a 'warrior goddess'. Uterine cancer survivor Fran Drescher praised the actress following her revelation earlier this week she had undergone a double mastectomy after tests revealed she carried the BRCA1 gene and had an 87 per cent chance of contracting breast cancer and a 50 per cent chance of contracting ovarian cancer - the disease which killed her mother, Marcheline Bertrand. She told E! News: 'I think she's a warrior goddess. I think she is great. I think she made a decision that seemed right for her, and there is no right or wrong, there's just the decision you make and whatever decision you make, you never look back.'

Brad Pitt was spotted at meetings in Hollywood on May 15 and he looked heavier than usual. Do you think this is for a new role or perhaps he’s been stressed out over Angelina’s double mastectomy?

The 49-year-old appeared in good spirits on May 15, after publicly commending his fiancé for the “inspiring” past few months. Brad definitely looked like he had put on a bit of weight, but he still looked totally hot. Do you think it’s for a new role?
Brad was at a Hollywood studio and he was showing off a much broader frame. He looks like he’s been working out a ton and we can’t help but wonder what for? Brad always looks great, so we just have to wonder if »

Being a uterine cancer survivor herself, Fran specifically stepped out to discuss Angelina and women's health, following the news that Jolie had undergone a double mastectomy.
