The 28 year old actress Amanda Bynes was arrested again for DUI, driving under the influence, on Sunday, Police said. She was charged with a misdemeanor and afterwards was held at the Van Nuys, California police station until 12:44pm that day, posting a $15,000 bail to be set free. It happened when she had stopped in the middle of an intersection on Van Nuys Blvd. in San Fernando Valley, California and police said she had a “disheveled” appearance which prompted them to give her a sobriety test which she failed. Amanda now has an upcoming court date on October 23 while already on probation, which means she could go to jail… if she doesn’t bribe the judge, of course!
Her probation is from her 2012 arrest for DUI in West Hollywood after side-sweeping a car and endangering the lives of others. After two years, in February 2014, Bynes took a plea bargain and the DUI charge was ultimately dropped under the stipulation that she serve three years of probation for reckless driving. In April 2014, she actually got her license back, and now is obviously showing that she can’t be trusted behind the wheel.
While most Americans may not know who George Clooney’s new bride is, her resume is just as impressive as the long-established actor’s. Touting degrees from impressive institutions like New York University and Oxford, this multilingual human rights lawyer is fluent in English, Arabic, and French. She also happens to have represented a Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange and former prime minister of Ukraine, Yulia Tymoshenko and has been appointed to several UN international human rights commissions over the years. Since Clooney co-founded “Not On Our Watch”, an organization fighting international atrocities of genocide and “Hope for Haiti”, a telethon he produced which managed to generate $66 million for a Haitian earthquake relief fund, it’s no wonder that they would find so much in common with each other.
The wedding had been kept a secret for obvious reasons, but many big names were reported to have been there, including Brad Pitt, who was invited but may have been in disguise since he had appeared not to have arrived, according to the Guardian. Other confirmed guests were actors Bill Murray, industry entrepreneur Rande Gerber, Ellen Barkin, Cindy Crawford and her husband, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, U2 frontman Bono, and US Vogue editor Anna Wintour. We’re sure to hear more about it soon from Vogue!
Alex Winter, the actor and director who portrayed Bill S. Preston Esquire in the two Bill & Ted movies, has given away a pile of bodacious details about the new, upcoming sequel to the franchise. In an interview with Yahoo’s movie writer Ben Falk, Winter says:
“[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” Winter tells us. “It’s really sweet and really f—-ing funny.
“But it’s a Bill & Ted movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”
“There’s many versions of ourselves in this movie,” he continues. “[It’s] answering the question: ‘What happened to these guys?’ They’re supposed to have done all this stuff, they weren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree, what happened 20 years later? To answer that question in a comedic way felt rich with possibility.”
As speculation about the reason behind such a long wait for another installment in the cult film’s series surrounded around the death of George Carlin (Rufus) and a lack of profit from the second movie, Winter tells us a bit of different story.
“Me and Keanu and [original writers] Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon] are all very close and have remained close over the years,” says Winter. “We’d be having dinner and we’d be like, ‘is there a point? Is there a way in?’ We’d kick an idea around and go no and we would leave it alone for a bunch of years. I guess about four years ago we had an idea together that we thought was pretty great. I think it was because so much time had gone by that it was great.
“It was really just the four of us and we were really very measured about it. It took time to construct the idea, it took Chris and Ed time to build the first draft. Then we put a producer together and got a director [Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot]. We’ve been working on drafts for the last couple of years. The script’s been finished for a while, but comedy is so specific. We’re in that world where producers are on, financiers are on and we’re just working and reworking the script.”
The loss of good friend Robin Williams was the most recent in a series of hardships in comedian Billy Connolly’s long career. As a boy, Connolly’s father had sexually abused him after his return from World War II, Over the years Connolly has been hit with serious health issues such as pneumonia, gallstones, acid reflux, and was recently diagnosed with deafness, prostate cancer and, like Williams, Parkinson’s disease. Connolly doesn’t enjoy talking about the disease as it’s not what he wants to be known for, but for his old pal Robin he made an exception.
After giving Williams a tip about how to handle Parkinson’s related problems with facial expression, Connolly says he received a phone call from the late Mrs. Doubtfire actor:
“He phoned me a week later, just days before it happened, and he said ‘it’s brilliant it’s working’.
“During the call he kept telling me he loved me. I said ‘I know’. But he kept repeating it saying ‘do you really know I love you’. I was thinking what the f*** is he on about.?
“After his death I thought ‘oh my God he was saying goodbye’.”
While there is still speculation about why Robin Williams committed suicide, the phone call Connolly speaks of seems to show an obvious attempt at saying goodbye to a longtime friend in the entertainment industry and close pal in whom he confided. And it’s no wonder why — Connolly, after finding out he had cancer, kept it a secret from the entire set during his filming of a new movie where he portrays a grandfather with cancer.

While it may have been big news for certain social circles, the death of 39-season show announcer Don Pardo managed to escape the newscasts of big media. Nevertheless, it wasn’t the most glamorous job, nor the most taxing. Only a few nights a month for half the year, Saturday Night Live’s announcer had what most people in show business would call the easiest job in the world. That’s why it’s probably best to give it to someone who has a lot more on his mind than the show itself.
Darrell Hammond hasn’t had the most prolific career since his SNL tenure. A Scary Movie here, an Epic Movie there, an entrapment case in the Bahamas and a whole lot of self-hatred, Hammond’s abusive childhood and bipolar-infused, self-described cutting habits have no doubt left a stain on his ability to get a solid job. It’s certainly not due to his acting ability, we all know that. This is a guy who convincingly pulled off such impersonations as Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Sean Connery, after all, but it’s no surprise that the former Saturday Night Live actor probably needs a simple job to pay his mental health bills.
Hey Girl, that’s true! 40 year-old actress Eva Mendes just gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, September 12th with Ryan Gosling. Both mother and the baby are save and sound!
These two cute love birds started dating after costarring in the movie The Place Beyond the Pines in fall 2011. Gosling even told the UK newspaper The Times that he would “make movies until I make babies.” in the same year. Well, here it comes! You are a daddy now! Congrats!
Mendes kept a low profile during her pregnancy from The Ellen DeGeneres Show to the red carpet appearance last year. During her’ pregnancy, Gosling has been stepped into the role of a caring father and a model husband. He goes out for the grocery shopping and cooks the meals, especially pasta because of Eva’s craving.
After an autistic student in Bay Village, Ohio fell victim to an ALS challenge prank by being splashed with a bucket of urine and cigarette butts instead of ice, The Price Is Right host, comedian Drew Carey, has offered $10,000 to help the investigation into discovering the perpetrators of this classic example of bullying. Talk show veteran Montel Williams has also followed suit and matched the $10k while bringing the issue to the attention of his Facebook followers:
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is one of the most innovative ways to raise awareness about a disease in years. In a viral campaign that’s been met with open arms by celebrities across the globe, the idea is to challenge a friend to pour a bucket of ice over one’s head and sharing a video of it online.
While the lyrical content of most of Dr. Dre’s records are full of jest, his persona has always been that of the soft-spoken, behind-the-scenes bad-ass producer who wouldn’t flinch if a nuclear missile were pointed at his head. Watch as he goes into a state of zen just before he gets pummeled with a bucket of ice!
If it were a competition, this Canadian ice hockey player might have won the challenge.
One of the more artistic version of the challenge by one of the most creative influences of our time.
Not many every-day people know who this guy is, but he is very well-known in the aviation community as being the design of the Bohannon B1 aircraft and an expert pilot. This video is one of more creative ways someone has fused their personality with the challenge.
Conan doesn’t quite understand the challenge..
The Simpsons have never ceased to remain relevant, and the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a testament to that. All in all, we think it’s great that the staff of the show used their time on the air as a platform for awareness. Check out poor Homer go through the challenge!
He has always been a strange fellow and this video is no exception to the rule. We’re not sure if this one is great because of the creative idea or because of the prospect of a drunken Patrick Stewart. You decide!
According to the ALS Association website, more than 5,600 Americans are diagnosed with the disease each year with around 30 thousand Americans currently living with the affliction. While ALS is responsible for 2 deaths out of every 100,000 citizens a year, living with the disease is no picnic. The fact that so many celebrities jumped on board to take the challenge and raise awareness is a social media achievement and will probably go down in history as one of the most successful viral marketing campaigns ever.
