“This movie was really important to me to be a part of because, as a teenager, I suffered from eating disorders,” Collins said.
“This is the first time I’m talking about it. This is my moment of talking about it,” Collins shared. “It’s important. It’s really important. It’s something that a lot of young women go through and there’s no shame in it, and this movie is about that — it’s about embracing your past and about realizing it’s something that doesn’t define who you are, but it’s about your experiences, »

DeGeneres, who is now the most decorated People's Choice Awards recipient of all time with 20 trophies, was still rocking the same outfit she wore to the show -- a velvet burgundy jacket over a black button-down shirt and matching pants. De Rossi switched up her look, trading in her white-and-gray blouse top for a more casual navy shirt and jacket with gold buttons.
The two were all smiles as photographers snapped their pic leaving the traditional Italian restaurant.

"It's such an accident because she normally doesn't look beautiful like that," the comedian lovingly joked of her wife of eight years' gorgeous red carpet attire.
Of course, Ellen was only kidding, but one thing that's no joke is the comedian's friendship with Justin Timberlake, who presented her with her awards.
"Justin's my friend, I love him, so it meant a lot to win the award period, and then to get it from my pal, Justin, was even sweeter," she shared. "So you know it's just touching. I don't leave »
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi could not look more in love if they tried.

Just because Ellen DeGeneres is married to Portia de Rossi doesn't mean she can't enjoy a little side action with Ryan Gosling - and by "side action" I just mean some light cradling and a kiss on the cheek. The La La Land actor stopped by the show a few weeks ago to chat about his latest movie (and his supercute kids), and if you thought the interview would be the end of that story, you were wrong. The editors created a mock featurette for the movie, only this time, Gosling's leading lady isn't Emma Stone. Take a look! Related:La La Land: Is That Really Ryan Gosling Playing the Piano?! »

Back in the summer of 2015, executive producer Brian Grazer announced that Netflix had given the green light to a fifth season of Arrested Development, which he expected to hit the streaming service some time last year.
Obviously that didn’t come off, and Grazer has now provided a new update on its status to The Wrap, revealing that deals for the cast are now in place, and it “should be happening soon”.
“I think we’re really close to pulling it off finally,” said Grazer. “All of the actors have agreed to do it and I think they’ve agreed to their compensation structure. That’s been the hardest–it’s all hard…But it should be happening soon.”
Arrested Development starred Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Tony Hale and David Cross, aoriginally ran for three seasons on Fox between »

When will we be getting another season of Arrested Development? Executive producer Brian Grazer says season five is close to happening, Deadline reports.A fifth season of the former Fox comedy has been in the works ever since season four was released on Netflix in 2013. The cast includes Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, Jessica Walter, Henry Winkler, John F. Beard, Mae Whitman, and Ron Howard (narrator).Read More… »
In 2015, Grazer assured fans that the newest season of the cult comedy would be released in 2016. “Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” he said on Adam Carolla’s podcast, offering a timetable that indicated that 17 new episodes of the Bluth family’s adventures would be available to stream around April or May 2016.
Arrested Development fans rejoice, for it seems that Imagine Entertainment and Netflix have finally found that extra money in the banana stand – making season 5 almost a done deal. The streaming platform confirmed its commitment to the series almost immediately after the long awaited fourth season debuted on its service in May 2013, and creator Mitch Hurwitz has repeatedly hinted at the direction he’s taking with scripts for further episodes – but recent comments from Brian Grazer at the Television Critics Association are the closest thing we have had to confirmation that the Bluths are coming back.
“We are close. I think we found a way to create the compensation structure for all the actors and create a work matrix so they can still make movies and do other things and it will all integrate. So we are really close — I think within a couple of weeks at the most.”

Ellen DeGeneres canceled Burrell's appearance after a video emerged earlier this week showing the singer giving a sermon in which she suggested gay people will die in 2017 because of their "sins."
"I came to tell you about sin. That sin nature... That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women, and it’s caused us pain on the body of Christ," Burrell preached, according to the video.
"You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man's penis in your face, you are perverted… You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman's breast, you are perverted," the 44-year-old gospel singer said in the clip.
