‘The Other Woman’ 2014 box office: Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann comedy to top North American box office chart despite mostly bad reviews (photo: Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann in ‘The Other Woman’) Starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the Nick Cassavetes-directed comedy The Other Woman will easily top the North American box office this weekend, April 25-27, 2014. The story of three women who gang up to take revenge on their cheating husband/lover, The Other Woman — which would have been more accurately titled "The Other Women" — opened with a solid $9.3 million at 3,205 U.S. and Canadian locations on Friday, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. As the old saying goes, "If you give them trash, they’ll gobble it up (and ask for seconds)" — or something along those lines. Anyhow, 20th Century Fox’s $40 million-budgeted The Other Woman, which has »

Oscars 2014: Watch Bette Midler Sing 'The Wind Beneath My Wings' Following 'In Memoriam' (Video)

When Bette Midler was announced as one of the performers for the 86th annual Oscars, many wondered just what role she would play during the broadcast. Midler added some emotional heft to the telecast Sunday night with a stirring rendition of "Wind Beneath My Wings."

Midler performed the iconic song immediately following the annual In Memoriam segment honoring late actors, directors, writers, and others who contributed to filmmaking, and her performance was directed at those who were lost over the last 12 months. The singer -- who was marking her first time performing on the Oscars stage, despite attending the ceremony numerous times over the years -- was clearly emotional during her rendition of the song, and that emotion crept into the crowd.

The Academy Award nominee (for 1979's "The Rose" and 1991's "For the Boys") broke down in tears when she finished her performance, which earned a standing ovation from »

Bette Midler to Sing at Oscars for the First Time

19 February 2014 11:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Oscars just got more Divine. Bette Midler, twice nominated for Best Actress - for 1979's The Rose and 1991's For the Boys - will perform for the first time at the awards. In past years, she has served as a presenter. Chalk up her appearance as another coup for Oscar producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, who last year convinced Barbra Streisand to sing "The Way We Were" in tribute to its late composer, Marvin Hamlisch. So far, the duo have been mum on Midler's act. The Oscars will air live on ABC Sunday, March 2, from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. »
