'MMMHops?' Hanson at 'The Hangover Part III' premiere: Beer is our next project
34 minutes ago
The boys of Hanson -- who are not so much boys anymore, but full-grown men now -- confused onlookers when they hit the red carpet at "The Hangover Part III" premiere. Just what were the guys doing at a "Hangover" event? Well, the film opens with their 1997 hit, "MMMBop," and it's the first track on the "Part III" official soundtrack.
While it's easy to still think of these three brothers as fresh-faced youngsters, bear in mind they are all well over the legal drinking age now -- in fact, two of them are past 30 -- and so it's perfectly fine that they told a reporter for Maximo their favorite drunken memories.
Taylor Hanson describes urinating off a rooftop and waking up in a shower with all his clothes on, while older brother Isaac Hanson recalls coming to after being passed out on a table in their tour bus, not knowing »
Melissa McCarthy fires extra from 'Tammy' set for abusing child?
1 hour ago
Melissa McCarthy is currently working on the movie "Tammy" in Wilmington, N.C. Not only is she the lead actress, McCarthy is also taking a seat in the director's chair for the first time, a job she's sharing with her husband, Ben Falcone.
As a director, McCarthy reportedly had to deal with a bit of unpleasantness on her movie's set. TMZ reports she fired an extra May 20, while filming a scene near a lake. The extra in question brought her young child along for the shoot. Throughout the day the extra allegedly struggled to quiet the child down, becoming enough of a distraction to disrupt the production.
According to a source, that all came to an end when McCarthy witnessed the extra jerk the child up in the air by the wrist. The source says McCarthy immediately had the extra removed from the set, explaining she wouldn't tolerate abuse.
Lindsay Lohan sued for $5M over 'drug addled image'
2 hours ago
Though she may be locked away, safe and sound in rehab, Lindsay Lohan's legal problems are nowhere near over. In fact, her troubles seem to be on the rise with a new lawsuit filed by a clothing company that produced her line of leggings Lohan first filed suit against the company in January.
She claims the company kept selling the leggings, even after the licensing deal was revoked. Her suit estimated damages of over $1 million had been suffered.
The company, Dnam, is now countersuing Lindsay, claiming a breach of contract. According to E! News, the company had some success with the leggings line, however buyers began to pull out "because they did not want to be associated with Lohan's drug addled image." The complaint says that customers began canceling orders in 2011, and Lindsay couldn't endorse the line as she was in rehab at the time.
They're asking for $5 million in damages, »
Keanu Reeves hits Cannes bloated but cleans up nice for his movie
3 hours ago
When Keanu Reeves first arrived at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, he was turning heads for a whole different reason than he normally does. The actor, who has always been pretty in-shape, appeared bloated. It's hard to dodge bullets and run up walls with the extra weight, so it was a bit surprising to see.
The next day is a whole different story, though. Keanu showed up for his movie's photo call, on May 20, looking far more like the actor people are used to. He'd had a shave, was nicely groomed and dressed to impress. Well, as dressed as he gets, anyway.
The movie Keanu is in Cannes promoting is actually his directorial debut, "Man of Tai Chi." The film is loosely based on the life of Tiger Chen, a stuntman Reeves befriended while making "The Matrix." The film stars Chen as a stuntman and martial arts expert who struggles to »
Ricky Gervais starts Oklahoma tornado Twitter war between atheists and believers
3 hours ago
Ricky Gervais thinks praying for Oklahoma is useless and is spearheading a Twitter campaign of atheists revolting against the popular #PrayForOklahoma hashtag on Twitter.
Gervais responded to a tweet sent out by MTV News that reads, "Beyonce, Rihanna & Katy Perry send prayers to #Oklahoma #PrayForOklahoma." The british comedian and well-known opponent of organized religion writes, "I feel like an idiot now ... I only sent money." The tweet was later removed, but not before being retweeted at least 350 times.
Subsequent tweets from Gervais included donation instructions along with a new hashtag:
And his view seems to be a popular one. "If all people are doing is praying, it is worthless," Hemant Mehta, an atheist blogger, tells CNN. "If they are praying and donating to the Red Cross, that's more like it."
The debate between believers and non-believers spilled over on to CNN's Facebook page, with commenters making remarks such as, »

Alec Baldwin and pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas put on Pda at Cannes
4 hours ago
Alec Baldwin's pregnant wife Hilaria Thomas accompanied him to the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where the couple put on their Sunday best and posed for photographers to promote Baldwin's film, "Seduced and Abandoned."
But Hilaria's future baby daddy wasn't all business, as he rarely ever is. Alec was having so much fun at the photocall that he suddenly swooped Hilaria off her feet, cradled her like a bride being carried over the honeymoon threshold, and planted a huge wet one on her kisser. Baldwin's bride, who is expecting her first child with the actor around mid-August, didn't seem to mind her husband's fast moves.
"Seduced and Abandoned" is a documentary that follows Baldwin and his director pal James Toback as they hustle around the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, looking for financing for a remake of "Last Tango in Paris." »
January Jones: Child's dad's identity is 'my son's business'
4 hours ago
Though he's over a year old, the father of January Jones' child is still a mystery. The "Mad Men" star gave birth to son Xander Dane in 2011, after ending a relationship with "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis.
Jones has been asked about her child's father before, but had always kept the answer private. When asked recently by the New York Times, she quickly dismissed it saying, "That's my son's business. It's not the public's business."
She then related some advice she received. "Jack Nicholson once told me," she shares, "'You should never give your personal life away, otherwise people will pick you apart. They'll never believe in your character.'" That's not to say she can't have fun with it, as she jokes, "Women should have lots of secrets. It's our right to have secrets. Otherwise, what would we write in our memoirs?"
What a fascinating read that'll be. »

Brad Pitt is spilling the beans on his drug-adled past in the June/July issue of Esquire magazine. The "World War Z" star describes a darker time in his life, which overlapped his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.
"For a long time I thought I did too much damage -- drug damage," says Pitt. "I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired."
Brad says he squandered a lot of time and opportunities in his younger days. "I spent years f***ing off," he reveals. "But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. ... It was an epiphany. ... It was a feeling of, 'Get up.' Because otherwise, what's the point?"

Victoria's Secret nixes mastectomy bra for breast cancer survivors
5 hours ago
Victoria's Secret is saying "thanks, but no thanks" to the nearly 130,000 supporters who signed a petition asking the company to design a mastectomy bra for breast cancer survivors.
Allana Maiden started the petition on change.org after watching her mother, now 21 years cancer free, struggle to feel beautiful and feminine after having her breasts removed. "It doesn't help that they don't have the option of buying the pretty bras they wore before their battle with cancer," Allan writes. "And specialty stores can be hard to find, forcing them to order bras online that they have to send back because they don't fit properly."
But Victoria's Secret has opted not to put forth effort to create a so-called "survivor line" of bras. "Through our research, we have learned that fitting and selling mastectomy bras ... in the right way ... a way that is beneficial to women is complicated and truly a science, »
