As tsunami warnings were issued for coastal areas along the west coasts of the U.S. and Canada following the earthquake and tsunami that's hit Japan, cast members of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” were evacuated from the Vancouver Island area in British Columbia where they were filming, according to MTV.
Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart were among those who vacated the area, and production came to a halt for the time being.
"Due to the tsunami advisory, filming of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn has been delayed," Summit Entertainment said in a statement to MTV. "All cast and crew were evacuated to base camp. Everyone is safe and sound."
Despite being in an accident, singer Jewel and her little bundle are doing just fine.
TMZ reported that the pregnant singer was in a two car accident in Texas when a volunteer fire truck smashed into the passenger side of her car. Jewel and her husband, world champion professional rodeo cowboy Ty Murray, are currently expecting their first child.
A representative for the singer released a statement saying, “Jewel was hit by a fire truck this morning in Texas. The singer was taken to the hospital and current medical tests conducted indicate that she and the baby are doing fine.”
As if New York didn't have enough problems with roaches and rodents — now it's infested with Smurfs! That's the concept behind the upcoming 3-D movie starring the little blue beings, set for release this summer.
In the just-released trailer for "The Smurfs," mysterious blue lights are seen flashing in the Manhattan sky as a news anchor reports there is not yet an explanation for the phenomenon. But the answer becomes obvious when a box arrives at the home of Patrick Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris) and his wife Grace (Jayma Mays). Inside: a bunch of Smurfs!
Patrick and Grace freak out, believing that the Smurfs are evil. "Do not be fooled by their cuteness!" he warns his wife, who soon discovers that the Smurfs are a bunch of softies. "They're friendly," she tells him.
Does Charlie Sheen not win at the newsstand? Only two celebrity weeklies in our round-up opted to put the face of Tiger Blood and Adonis DNA on their covers, despite his endless - endless, right? It's like this story will just keep going, and going, and going - saga.
Everyone else studiously ignored Sheen's antics and rantings in favor of rehashed stories about how Jennifer Aniston is becoming a mom (seriously, how many times does this lady have to say that's not happening?) and more breathless coverage on the latest batch of "Teen Moms." Oh, and Brad Womack.
Until next week....
The devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake in Japan and subsequent tsunami has not only media organizations but the Twitter-verse buzzing.
Celebrities like Alyssa Milano, P. Diddy and stars from "Glee" are tracking the news and tweeting prayers, hope and ideas on how we can help.
As the news developed early Friday, Lindsay Lohan was apparently glued to CNN for the latest updates, as she tweeted a photo of the coverage unfolding on her television along with the message, "My mommy just woke my sister and i up to this! god bless those that are in fear."
You may never see Gwyneth Paltrow and hubby Chris Martin hand-in-hand on the red carpet, but that doesn't mean they're not spending quality time together at home.
"Last Saturday night, I made turkey meatballs and we all had dinner together, then put the kids to bed and watched a movie on Apple TV," Paltrow tells interviewer Faith Hill in the April issue of InStyle U.K. "We always go out one night of the weekend, because it's nice for me to get out of the house. I cook so much during the week, it's good for me to have a break and eat something that I don't make, like sashimi or Indian food."
The family, which includes daughter Apple, 6, and son Moses, 4, divide their time between England and the United States, and the "Country Strong" star says she enjoys inviting friends over to the house for something of a hoedown.
"I like having dance parties at my house and being super-goofy with my girlfriends," says the Oscar winner. "We just play dance music, like whatever is on the radio, and then old stuff — Michael Jackson, disco — and new stuff; we mix it up. It's fun."
