Julia Roberts: Can't we just eat and love?

While Julia Roberts is out promoting her new film “Eat, Pray, Love,” she’d rather not talk about the “Pray” parts of her own life.

According to JustJared.com, the actress said Wednesday that she doesn’t like to discuss her religious beliefs in public.

“I’ve realized something my mother told me 22 years ago,” she told the audience gathered at an "Eat, Pray, Love" press conference in Tokyo, Japan. “You’re an actor, act. Don’t talk about politics or religion.”

Brooklyn Decker latest to climb aboard 'Battleship'

Apparently, when it comes time to defend a destroyer from alien attack, you need a model, a pop star and a guy who proudly lets it all hang out in his nude scenes to be around for the battle.

At least, that's the way it's shaping up on actor/director Peter Berg's "Battleship," the action/adventure movie – which, yes, is based on the Hasbro game - that's rapidly assembling a cast.

So far in the lineup we have Taylor Kitsch – who portrayed Tim Riggins on “Friday Night Lights” – playing the lead as Alex Hopper. “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard has been cast as the straight-laced brother of Kitsch’s more wild and spirited character.

No plans 'at this time' for Chris Brown and Usher tour

After R&B stars Chris Brown and Usher made headlines a few weeks ago by appearing together on stage during Usher's performance in Jamaica, many have questioned whether or not the duo are planning to take their act on tour.

Although producer Bryan-Michael Cox tempted fans by dropping "some exclusive [expletive]" that Brown and Usher were going to tour, he later tweeted that he didn’t know that information for sure. ("It would be dope, tho[ugh]," Cox added.)

Brown also fueled the speculation by tweeting, "What would you guys say if me and Usher went on tour?"

Adam Lambert: ‘TongueDiving is the new StageDiving’

While some artists prefer to connect with an audience through their music, Adam Lambert has opted for a more… interactive approach.

At Glambert’s Tuesday night show in Rhode Island, the sparkly singer stopped mid-song to make out with a fan in the front row, PopEater.com reported.

It must have been a good kiss because, about a minute later, the “American Idol” runner-up went back for seconds.

'Millionaire' to unveil new look, format

The syndicated version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" begins its ninth season next month, and fans of the long-running quiz show should expect some big changes.

"Millionaire" will unveil a new set, getting rid of the "Hot Seat" chairs that have been a staple of the show since it premiered on ABC more than a decade ago. Host Meredith Vieira and contestants will now stand throughout the show, with questions and winnings presented on an 18-foot wide projection screen.

The format of the show has also been modified.  Gone are two of the show's lifelines - Double Dip (contestants can choose two of four possible answers on a question) and Ask the Expert (contestants get help via Skype from a celebrity, former contestant or "know-it-all").  In addition, the iconic 15-question game has been cut to 14 questions, while the controversial time clock has been scrapped.

Betty White may be 88-years-old, but the Emmy-Award winning actress and pop-culture icon is still at the top of her game.

The star plans to write two books for G.P. Putnam’s Sons, one about life lessons and another about the animals at the Los Angeles Zoo, where she sits on the board.

“Betty White is a national treasure,” said Ivan Held, president of the publishing group, according to Penguin’s website. “Her wide-ranging appeal and irrepressible humor transcends generations, readers and cultures. She truly is one of a kind.”
