'Gone Baby Gone' actress arrested for alleged break-in

An actress who was handpicked by Ben Affleck to appear in his directorial debut, “Gone Baby Gone,” is facing changes for an alleged break in and lying to police.

According to the criminal complaints, Quigg’s initial statements to police were that she witnessed a man break into the apartment, ran after him and then picked up the stolen items after the burglar dropped them.

Gwyneth Paltrow to perform at the CMAs

Gwyneth Paltrow has gone country. The actress will make her live singing debut at the 44th annual Country Music Awards on November 10, performing the title track from her new movie “Country Strong.”

The song was released as a single to radio last week, and no one was more surprised than Paltrow, according to EW.com.

“I was just singing songs for the movie. I think the original plan was they wanted the bona fide crew to re-sing our songs, and then when [Sony Music Nashville chair] Joe Galante heard it, he was like, ‘No, I want to release this as the single.’ I was like, ‘Excuse me please? What? What is going on?’”

'Chuck' gets a full season

In another example of the new age of DVRs and online viewing, where pure ratings no longer determine what stays on the air, "Chuck" has gotten a full-season pick-up from NBC on Tuesday.

It's been a difficult road from the beginning for the show with a hard-core fan following. It's never had a full-season renewal, and fans have put forth their best effort over the years on social media to keep it going. (When asked how much Facebook, Twitter and the like had to do with the show's success, star Zachary Levi told CNN, "The Internet rules the world now, so I think it has everything to do with it.")

In yesterday's announcement, NBC pointed to the fact that it was "heavily time-shifted," saying that 29 percent of its viewership came from DVR recordings watched on the same day it first aired.

It's a big day for Conan O'Brien fans. Beginning at 1 p.m. ET today, the talk show host will launch his Live Coco Cam, which will take fans behind the scenes at Team Coco for 24 hours.

Among the candidates: Pope Benedict XVI, Justin Bieber, The Sultan of Brunei, the cast of the 2004 live-action "Fat Albert" movie, REO Speedwagon, and Arlene Wagner, the curator of Oregon's Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum.

Kristen Stewart offered job at strip club

If the acting thing doesn't work out, at least Kristen Stewart could find work as a stripper.

The actress, who plays an exotic dancer in her new film "Welcome to the Rileys," says she was offered a job at a strip club during the making of the movie.

Stewart, whose teenage character enters into a relationship with older married man James Gandolfini, reveals to MTV that while shooting the Ridley Scott drama in New Orleans, "I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer, and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job."

Alec Baldwin: I can't marry Jesse Tyler Ferguson

Alec Baldwin wants you to know it’s not his sexual orientation that’s keeping him from marrying “Modern Family’s” Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who is openly gay.

Baldwin is the latest celebrity to get involved with Fight Back New York, a political action committee working to remove senators from office who “stand in the way of equality,” as the "30 Rock" star puts it.

Ferguson released a comedic video for the committee back in August, in which he professes his love for Baldwin, but says the pair can’t be married in New York “because a bunch of stupid senators, last year, voted against my rights.”
