Benedict Cumberbatch: 10 reasons to love the 'Sherlock' star even more
4 hours ago
Benedict Cumberbatch is a lovable guy. When the "Sherlock" star protests that he's not, that just makes him more attractive -- the guy can't win. For the rest of us, however, it's lovely. A recent interview in T Magazine offers a whole bunch of reasons to adore Cumberbatch.
Here are 10 of the best.
1. Cumberbatch, who has previously compared himself to an otter, also thinks that he looks like Sid from "Ice Age." Judge for yourself.
2. Coffee makes Cumberbatch talk really quickly.
3. Did you realize that Cumberbatch has never really had a romantic lead? "I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers," he says.
5. Although most actors want their characters to return in movie sequels, Cumberbatch thinks not killing Khan at the end »
Beyoncé, Jennifer Garner, Jane Lynch and more want to 'Ban Bossy': Watch the PSA
8 hours ago
When talking about strong, independent women, it's time to take the word "bossy" out of the vernacular. And that's exactly what a group of women from Hollywood, the government and more are fighting to achieve with the new campaign, "Ban Bossy."
Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In Foundation in partnership with Lifetime has recruited Beyoncé, Jennifer Garner, Jane Lynch, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg and many more to encourage girls to seek leadership roles and discourage insulting ambitious women as "bossy."
"When a little boy asserts himself, he's called a 'leader.' Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded 'bossy.' Words like bossy send a message: Don't raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys -- a trend that continues into adulthood," BanBossy.com writes.

'Mad Men's' Elisabeth Moss is your totally cool and also famous friend
11 hours ago
Elisabeth Moss is a multiple Emmy nominee and recent Golden Globe winner ... and also someone who thinks that when paparazzi snap pictures of her, "They must've had no one else to photograph."
That's one of the many charming anecdotes in a New York magazine profile of the "Mad Men" star, who reveals herself to be very self-aware of her place in celebrity culture while also consuming it. For instance, she frets about the hanging-out-with-the-subject portion of the article -- "I was like, 'I guess we'll go to the beach, because that's something I would do if I had time and wasn't so lazy?'" -- and gets excited when she sees the writer jotting down what she's wearing on the beach outing: "That's my favorite part of articles. I always want to know what they're wearing. I want to know what Amy Adams wears to lunch."

Kevin Bacon shares hilarious message for millennials: You don't know the '80s
11 hours ago
Kevin Bacon has a bone to pick with millennials.
"The Following" star is sick of kids who were born after 1985, pretending that they get '80s culture. The self-described two-time Saturn Award nominee has noticed that the awareness of '80s culture and technology has been in a significant decline lately, especially with millennials, and he won't stand for it.
Check out his hilarious PSA above, in which he calls the under-30 crowd out for not truly understanding how hard life was back then. At least he doesn't mention having to walk to school in the snow uphill both ways. »
Justin Bieber deposition video shows off his worst side: Watch
13 hours ago
Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.
Justin Bieber didn't do himself any favors in his March 6 deposition over a battery lawsuit filed by photographer Jeffrey Binion. The photog claims Bieber's bodyguard beat him up, but based on snippets of the deposition released by TMZ, Bieber wasn't having any of it.
Seriously, Bieber came out looking like an absolutely horrible human being in these videos. From his slurred words (was he even sober?) to his wink at the camera in the above clip, Bieber seems to embody all the negative things people have to say about him.
It is hard to completely judge the deposition from these brief clips. Bieber gets annoyed by the nature of the questions asked here, but it could be they lead to justified ends. He frequently compares the deposition to a journalistic interview -- likely because the conversation sometimes touches on hot-button media topics like »

13 hours ago
We're all still in this together.
Zac Efron's head is still in the game, because the "That Awkward Moment" star is down for another "High School Musical." When asked over the weekend at the SXSW festival whether rumors about a "HSM" reunion were true, Efron didn't shoot them down.
"We're all thinking about it," Efron tells E! News. "I continue to see all the guys from 'High School.' Every time we do ... there's just this look between us. It's so cool because we never forget a single moment of that experience."
Efron added that whenever he sees one of his old co-stars, "It brings you right back to those days," so it's not like it be difficult to get the gang back together. Would you want to see another "HSM?"
Bet on it. »
Kristen Bell discusses 'Veronica Mars' movie and peeing at the Oscars on 'Gma,' 'Live'
15 hours ago
Kristen Bell is a busy woman. Coming off her appearance at the 2014 Oscars and with the "Veronica Mars" movie about to be released, she's doing the talk-show rounds this week, guesting on both "Good Morning America" and "Live with Kelly and Michael" Monday (March 10).
Bell continued her always-entertaining streak by talking about the movie and how to use the bathroom at the Academy Awards.
On the topic of "Veronica Mars," Bell points out that she had always wanted to make the movie "since the day the show was canceled." Considering that Bell also mentioned a short shooting schedule -- 24 days -- and a lack of much payment for the cast, this really was a labor of love for everyone.
Further talk brought up a comparison to "The Godfather" (think "they pulled me back in") and praise for Bell's husband: "We got a nice little stud-muffin cameo from Dax Shepard," Bell says. »

After their segment got cut from the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, Andrew Garfield and the "Batkid" Miles Scott spent the day together at Disneyland, and despite the snub they had a "great time."

"In full collaboration with the academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that »
Happy birthday, Chuck Norris: 'Walker, Texas Ranger's' craziest moments
21 hours ago
Celebrating a birthday Monday (March 10), Norris might best be remembered as the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger." He was out there dispensing justice with roundhouse kicks even before it became a meme that threatened to tear the internet apart. Armed with a pair of boots and his trusty hat, no bad guy was safe from Walker.
There was a lot of weird on that show though, in addition to the regular busting up of villains. In fact, it got so insane that Conan O'Brien made a regular segment out of bizarre "Walker" clips on his old "Late Night" show.
If you remember the "Walker, Texas Ranger" lever, you know exactly what to expect from the videos below. However, if you're new to this particular part of Norris' career, »

(And Other Concerns)" knows. Kaling has a very specific voice and opinion, and it's clear that she's got an audience, ready and willing to listen.
