'The Dark Knight Rises': Chris Nolan was 'nervous' about including Catwoman

30 May 2012 4:59 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Catwoman has always been held in high regard among Batman fans. It is this that made Chris Nolan unsure about adding the character to the upcoming movie "The Dark Knight Rises."

In an interview with Empire, the film's director explains, "Catwoman is a very iconic figure in the Batman pantheon...I was nervous about how she would fit into our world. But Jonah [Jonathan Nolan, the film's co-writer and Chris Nolan's brother] was very much convinced that there would be a great way to do it and eventually turned me around."

Nolan continues, "Once I got my head around the idea of looking at that character through the prism of our films, saying, 'Who could that person be in real life?' we figured it out. She's a bit of a con-woman, something of a grifter. A hard-edged kind of criminal."

Catwoman has had a bit of a mixed track record in Batman history. Michelle Pfeiffer famously played her in the 1992 movie "Batman Returns. »

Kathie Lee Gifford pulls an Elisabeth Hasselbeck with Martin Short

30 May 2012 3:47 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

On Wednesday (May 30), Martin Short dropped by the fourth hour of "Today" to trade funnies with hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. The interview was going swimmingly until Kathie Lee brought up Short's wife, Nancy.

"He and Nancy have one of the greatest marriages of anybody in show business," says Gifford. "How many years now for you guys?"

Fyi, Nancy died in 2010.

Short replies, "Umm... 36 years."

Still clueless, Gifford powers on, asking, "But you're still in love?"

"Madly in love," he agrees.

"Why?!" Gifford continued.

Short tersely replies, "I'm cute."

Gifford, of course, later found out her error and tweeted this apology to him: "I send my sincerest apologies to @MartinShort and his family. He handled situation w/enormous grace and kindness and I'm so grateful."

In May 2011, "The View's" Elisabeth Hasselbeck made the same mistake when she asked Stanley Tucci -- whose wife had recently died -- »

30 May 2012 3:30 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sure, Sean "Diddy" Combs is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but that doesn't mean his son Justin Combs should be disqualified from receiving a college scholarship. Or should we say, an athletic scholarship, to be exact. UCLA granted the 18-year-old a full ride to play on the Bruins football team, and although that didn't sit well with some, the prestigious university stands firmly behind their decision. A rep from the university tells E! News, "Unlike need-based scholarships, athletic scholarships are awarded to students strictly on the basis of their athletic and academic ability—not their financial need.

"America's Next Top Model": Who Will Win, Who Should Win and Why?

30 May 2012 3:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"America's Next Top Model" will be crowned tonight, but will the winner be a non-American?This season's theme is "British Invasion," with seven girls from the U.S. competing against seven girls from the U.K. Unsurprisingly, only one American, Laura Lafrate, and one Brit, Sophie Sumner, remain.Laura (bottom left) has established herself as a versatile model with strong poses. However, her weakness is her runway walk, which got her cut from a fashion show in Toronto and cost her a couple of go-see clients in Hong Kong.Sophie's (bottom right) personality and enthusiasm have endeared her with designers; she booked all four of her designers during her go-sees. She's taken strong photos as well, and earned "best photo" during last week's "Dreams Come True" perfume shoot (the perfume campaign is one of the winner's prizes).The CW just released Laura and Sophie's final CoverGirl photos, and those might hint who the winner is. »
