He ruled the box office in the 1930s and now 88-year-old Mickey Rooney is back on Hollywood's A-list.
The big-screen legend, who mingled with silver-screen stars like Judy Garland and Cary Grant in his heyday, says that he and wife Jan now pal around with the likes of Brangelina and Tomkat.
Rooney, who still acts and performs in nightclubs, told the New York Post: "Jan and I know Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. My wife Jan sang at Anthony Hopkins’ wedding — and who walks up and talks to me but Tom Cruise? A real gentleman."
In February, 2009, Joaquin Phoenix made an appearance on David Letterman’s “Late Show” that left viewers wondering if he was acting or if he'd indeed completely lost it.
At the time, the actor walked onto the set with a beard obscuring most of his face, sunglasses to conceal the rest of it and no desire to actually be interviewed, it seemed.
Letterman tried to coax something out of the star in hopes to save the interview, but ended it by saying he was sorry Phoenix couldn't be there that night.
Well, according to the New York Times, Phoenix will head back to “Letterman” on September 22 – although which persona he’ll be bringing remains to be seen. Perhaps he’ll explain what exactly is going on with his documentary, “I’m Still Here,” which is currently playing in limited release.
Note to 50 Cent: Folks don’t like it when you joke about sexuality and violence.
The New York Post reports that The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has mounted a campaign against the rapper after he got into a bit of a Twitter feud with blogger Perez Hilton.
"Perez Hilton calld (sic) me [expletive] so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding,” Fiddy tweeted. “Wasnt (sic) his but still made me feel better.”
Last night's season (or series) finale of "Bachelor Pad" began with host Chris Harrison bringing the three remaining couples together to announce the "most important competition" of the game - a ballroom dancing showdown.
The couples headed to some random dance studio, where they were paired with a pro from "Dancing with the Stars" to learn a dance in less than a day. We watched them practice, practice and practice some more, and realized they won't make it to Carnegie Hall anytime soon.
When it was time for the dance, the couples had to perform before a panel of "celebrity" judges. And by "celebrities," I mean three former "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" stars who also performed on "Dancing with the Stars" - Melissa Rycroft, Jake Pavelka and Trista Sutter. (What, you actually expected real celebrities?)
As the 35th annual Toronto International Film Festival continues to roll along, buzz around certain films continues to mount.
I can't tell you how many times someone has asked me whether I've seen Danny Boyle's survival tale, "127 Hours." While a screening of the film has not yet worked it's way into my packed schedule, I can tell you when several journalists in separate groups are all chatting about the same movie, it means something.
Likewise, Darren Aronofksy's dark drama about rival ballet dancers, "Black Swan," has picked up some momentum, especially for the performance of its star, Natalie Portman.
