  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_dn4kctvj"]] Justin Bieber came down with a severe case of amnesia when it came to Selena Gomez, 'cause he couldn't remember a damn thing about her ... or their breakfast. Paps got Bieber in WeHo Sunday after he came face-to-face again with Selena earlier in the day -- and when asked if he and his ex were getting back together ... Justin basically hit back with the who, what, where and No Way routine, much to the paps' amusement.

Truck Driver Saves Chicken in the Middle of the Road, Becomes Her Best Friend

Truck Driver Saves Chicken in the Middle of the Road, Becomes Her Best Friend
Why did the chicken cross the road? Because she was looking for a hero.

Luckily, Lucky found one.

Last year, the chicken was crammed into a truck with hundreds of others and sent to the slaughterhouse, reports People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Somewhere in Washington, though, some fortunate happenstance shook Lucky from her cage on the vehicle and dumped her onto the road.

Warren Padgette, a trucker driving behind Lucky’s truck, saw the weak bird plop on to the pavement. Figuring the chicken was dead, but hoping she wasn’t, Padgette stopped his rig and went to check on her.

8 Photos of Chris Pine and His Famous Dad That Prove the Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree
Chris Pine has been making us swoon since he first burst onto the scene in the 2006 romantic comedy Just My Luck, but his very first TV appearance actually happened when he was just 3 years old. In case you weren't aware, Chris's dad is none other than Robert Pine - the actor who famously played Sgt. Joseph Getraer on NBC's CHiPs in the late '70s and early '80s - and in 1983, Chris joined his dad on the show as a boy named Christopher. The two teamed up for an adorable duet of "Hurry, Hurry Climb the Ladder" and melted hearts everywhere. Of course, this isn't the only glimpse we've gotten of their close bond. Robert often steps out to support his son at his movie premieres, and back in May 2014, the veteran actor said he knew "from the very first moment" that Chris would make it big in Hollywood.

11 Things You Probably Never Knew About Disney Classic Lizzie McGuire

I have an incredible statement to make: it's been 16 years since Lizzie McGuire started airing on the Disney Channel. Feel old yet? The show's star, Hilary Duff, is turning 30 this year. Now do you feel old? Whether you do or don't, I'm still willing to bet that if you're a millennial, you watched a whole lot of classic Disney Channel back in the day. (Or maybe you watched Nickelodeon, in which case I have nothing to discuss with you.) I loved watching Lizzie McGuire because Lizzie was just sooo relatable. Remember that episode when she just wants to get a bra, but she had to awkwardly talk about it in front of her dad and brother? Been there, done that. I have a special place in my heart for the show and the character because I felt like I was going through life right along with Lizzie. So from one fan to another, I wanted to share these 11 fun facts about the show that you might not have known before. RelatedVery Important Question: Were You a Nickelodeon Kid or a Disney Channel Kid? Heartthrob Ethan Craft was almost portrayed as a bully. Lucky for us, the showrunners switched gears and had him be a lovable character instead. Speaking of Ethan, Clayton Snyder, who played Ethan, said as his hair got progressively longer throughout the show, he ended up taking more time in hair and makeup than the girls did. A lot of otherwise-famous people had cameos on Lizzie McGuire, including Zachary Quinto, Frankie Muniz, Steven Tyler, and Doris Roberts. Hilary Duff almost didn't get the role of Lizzie. In fact, actress Sara Paxton was considered for the role, as was Lindsay Lohan. Even though we feel like there have been years and years of episodes of Lizzie, there are actually only 65 of them. Only 65! Lizzie's bitmoji character almost didn't happen. Originally the show was just going to have Hilary doing voiceover, but the cartoon character ended up being added in with it. When Hilary got the call from Disney that they wanted her to come in to read for the role of Lizzie, she didn't want to go. She said in an interview in 2006 that she wanted her big break and didn't want to work for Disney. Hilary said she didn't do well on her first audition because she admittedly didn't know any of her lines. She only went out for the role so she could see her friends. Disney Channel execs weren't impressed with Hilary's acting in the beginning, so they demanded the showrunners hire an acting coach to work with the cast. There was almost a spinoff about Lizzie's best friend Miranda and her little sister, Stevie, called What's Stevie Thinking?, but it never happened. Selena Gomez was actually supposed to play Stevie! The show's creator, Terri Minsky, wants to bring everyone back together for a remake, but unfortunately Hilary's not interested.

Jerry Seinfeld Refuses to Hug Kesha on the Red Carpet -- See the Awkward Encounter!

Jerry Seinfeld Refuses to Hug Kesha on the Red Carpet -- See the Awkward Encounter!
Jerry Seinfeld wishes Kesha "the best"... but that doesn't mean he wants to hug her.

The 63-year-old comedian awkwardly refused to hug the singer on the red carpet at the National Night of Laughter and Song event in Washington, D.C. on Monday.

Watch: President Obama Laughs It Up With Jerry Seinfeld on 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee'

Lucky for us, the whole thing was caught on camera during Seinfeld's interview with radio host Tommy McFly.

"I'm Kesha. I love you so much!" Kesha said as she approached the comedian on the red carpet with her hands out.

"Oh, thanks," Seinfeld responded.

"Can I give you a hug?" Kesha asked.

"No thanks," Seinfeld answered, and then repeated several times after Kesha asked him "please."

"I have no idea who that was!" he told McFly after Kesha retreated, declaring once he was told it was Kesha that he wishes her "the best."

Chris Pine & Michelle Williams To Star In Spy Thriller From ‘Theory Of Everything’ Director

For a while, we wondered if Chris Pine would ever be able to escape the shadow of Captain Kirk. Before he starred in J.J. Abrams’ first “Star Trek” film, Pine was mostly known for tween fare like Lindsay Lohan vehicle “Just My Luck” or “The Princess Diaries 2.” Pine proved to be perfect casting in the role that was created by William Shatner, but subsequent starring vehicles didn’t often work: for every “Unstoppable,” there was a “This Means War,” or a “Rise Of The Guardians,” or a “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” or a “Horrible Bosses 2.”

Berlin: Sellers Hit the Festival and Market With Mixed Expectations

Berlin: Sellers Hit the Festival and Market With Mixed Expectations
Sellers are heading to Berlin with realistic expectations about the state of the marketplace and the hurdles facing them.

“Consistently delivering great movies has always been the challenge, but you need the rigor required for that even more so now,” says Sierra/Affinity CEO Nick Meyer, who’ll be repping the Wwi-era drama “The Promise,” starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, in Berlin. “The demand for excellence in filmmaking from independent distributors around the world is higher than ever.”

While Meyer is pragmatic about the global economy (“There are always going to be currency fluctuations and markets that are up and down — that’s the rule,” he says), others see a more ominous landscape.

“The fundamental issue right now is that every single territory in the world has problems that are very challenging, not just for the cinema market, but politically and economically,” says FilmNation Entertainment senior VP of international sales Tara Erer,

Slanty Eyed Mama Brings Scathing Wit and Stealth Poignance to New York Fringe Festival

Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show 20th New York International Fringe Festival Drom, NYC August 21 & 22, 2016

"Welcome to the dress rehearsal/tech rehearsal/first performance of Happy Lucky Golden Tofu Panda Dragon Good Time Fun Fun Show!" says Kate Rigg of her bracingly funny performance platter of song, stand-up and tragicomic sketches. What follows is raw in the best senses of the word. Even the rough patches -- waiting for "the white people" to wrestle with skittish technology; a wardrobe malfunction that provokes a sweet, awkward encounter with an angelic staffer at the show’s East Village venue, then gets hilariously incorporated into a skit -- show off Rigg's quicksilver wit and willingness to take her captivated audiences anywhere.

The Fringe Festival is legendary for many things, among them a Diy mandate that throws its talent into the rapids with nary a paddle. Audiences can feel

Collins' Sex Novels Have Enjoyed Unexpectedly Few Film Versions (The Stud, The Bitch)

Joan Collins in 'The Bitch': Sex tale based on younger sister Jackie Collins' novel. Author Jackie Collins dead at 77: Surprisingly few film and TV adaptations of her bestselling novels Jackie Collins, best known for a series of bestsellers about the dysfunctional sex lives of the rich and famous and for being the younger sister of film and TV star Joan Collins, died of breast cancer on Sept. 19, '15, in Los Angeles. The London-born (Oct. 4, 1937) Collins was 77. Collins' tawdry, female-centered novels – much like those of Danielle Steel and Judith Krantz – were/are immensely popular. According to her website, they have sold more than 500 million copies in 40 countries. And if the increasingly tabloidy BBC is to be believed (nowadays, Wikipedia has become a key source, apparently), every single one of them – 32 in all – appeared on the New York Times' bestseller list. (Collins' own site claims that a mere 30 were included.) Sex

Just Before I Go | Review

Drop in the Bucket: Cox’s Uneven Directorial Debut

Actress Courtney Cox makes her directorial debut with Just Before I Go, based on the first feature screenplay from television alum David Flebotte. Attempting to navigate a trajectory of meaningful emotional pathos through a gutter of adult humor many write off as mere vulgarity, Cox’s film ultimately feels like the R rated version of some made-for-tv film as it attempts to extend the horizon of outsider ennui to all origins of suicidal tendency. The film isn’t without a laugh or two, but a severe tonal swerve from black comedy to sentimental PSA seems more silly than sincere, and the narrative just simply isn’t strong enough to correctly reconcile the supposed melancholy of its likeable protagonist with such a pedestrian resolution.

After his wife Penny (Elisha Cuthbert) leaves him, pet store worker Ted (Sean William Scott) decides that he wants to kill himself.
