Billy Ray Cyrus calls off divorce, makes up with Miley

After blaming daughter Miley Cyrus' fame for destroying his family, Billy Ray Cyrus is picking up the pieces. The singer says he is calling off his divorce from wife Tish and trying to keep his clan together.

"I've dropped the divorce," Cyrus, who announced in October that he and wife Tish were splitting after 17 years of marriage, says in an interview on "The View."

"I wanted to put my family back together," he says, adding that they are "communicating with each other" in a way they hadn't before. "Things are really the best they've ever been."

Lawrence's own real-life competition was pretty fierce: More than 30 actresses, including Abigail Breslin and "True Grit" star Hailee Steinfeld, auditioned for the part.

'Black Swan' director drops out of 'The Wolverine'

Hugh Jackman's next turn as Wolverine won't be directed by Darren Aronofsky after all.

The "Black Swan" director (in a joint statement with 20th Century Fox) said, "As I talked more about the film with my collaborators at Fox, who have been totally supportive throughout my work on the movie, it became clear that the production of 'The Wolverine' would keep me out of the country for almost a year."

He went on to say that he was dropping out of the project because he did not want to be away from his family for that long, adding, "I am sad that I won't be able to see the project through, as it is a terrific script and I was very much looking forward to working with my friend, Hugh Jackman, again."
