Gabriel Garcia Marquez Has Died

4 hours ago

Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel laureate whose novels and short stories exposed tens of millions of readers to Latin America's passion, superstition, violence and inequality, died at home in Mexico City around midday, according to people close to his family. He was 87. Widely considered the most popular Spanish-language writer since Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century, Garcia Marquez achieved literary celebrity that spawned comparisons to Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. His flamboyant and melancholy fictional works - among them Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Love in the Time of Cholera, and Autumn of the Patriarch - outsold everything published in Spanish except the Bible. »

Robert Pattinson Is Broody, Bloodied and Briefly Shirtless in New The Rover Trailer

6 hours ago

With two films set to be screened at Cannes this year, it's safe to say Robert Pattinson has officially left his sparkly vampire past far behind him. The trailer for one of those movies, The Rover, was released Thursday, and it finds the Twilight actor bloodied and desperate in post-apocalyptic Australia. A mysterious criminal named Eric (Guy Pearce) drags Pattinson's Reynolds around the dusty, barren landscape, searching for Reynold's brother and his rival gang. The music is eerie, the cinematography dark and the tone ominous. But we're treated to a a few seconds of Pattinson shirtless, so it seems the »

North West Looks Angelic in Kendall Jenner's Latest Instagram Shot

6 hours ago

So heavenly. Doting auntie Kendall Jenner shared this sweet shot (below) of little North West on her Instagram account Wednesday night, which features the 10-month-old in an all-white outfit adorably accessorized with tiny wings.

These Four People Donated Organs to Complete Strangers

7 hours ago

Each day, 18 people die waiting for an organ transplant. Experts think one solution to the organ donor shortage may be to encourage more people to be living donors to a stranger. Since 1988, only 1,509 people have done so - 97 percent of those were kidneys. "More and more people are donating anonymously but it's not enough," says Ruthanne Leishman, who matches living donors with recipients at The United Network for Organ Sharing. "A lot of people don't even know they can," she says. The ones that do are "very unique, incredible and selfless individuals," she says. "It takes a very special person to do this. »

Paul Walker's Mother Abandons Bid for Guardianship of His Daughter

9 hours ago

Paul Walker's mother has requested a dismissal of her petition for guardianship of the late actor's 15-year-old daughter, Meadow Rain.

A hearing had been scheduled for April 30, but a judge had already dismissed Cheryl Ann's petition for temporary guardianship over Meadow following her son's tragic death in a car crash last November. »

Strap on the Foam Suit: A Mrs. Doubtfire Sequel Is in the Works

9 hours ago

Get those dinner reservations in order - a sequel to Mrs. Doubtfire is in the works. Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus are attached to the 1993 family comedy's sequel, which is in development at Fox 2000. Elf screenwriter David Berenbaum is writing the script, which means you can possibly expect a scene where Mrs. Doubtfire's engines are revived by the power of Christmas. As the project appears to be very early in the development process, there is no word on a release date, nor which children Williams will need to pose as an elderly Scottish woman caring for them.
