Angelina and Brad plan to ease out of acting

Angelina Jolie is spreading the word that she wants to scale back on the movie-making and focus on her six kids.

In an interview with The Financial Times, the 36-year-old star reveals that acting is starting to lose its luster.

"As Brad and I get older we're going to do fewer films," she said, according to The Wrap. "I've been working for a long time, he's been working for a long time, we've had a nice run and don't want to be doing this our whole lives... I don't love it as much... I love being a mom."

From 'Thriller' to Snooki: 30 years of MTV

Thirty years ago, a network that's now synonymous with pop culture and providing some of the best entertainment of the century was born.

Although we've lost count of how many jaw-dropping moments and reality TV shows MTV has produced, the network has managed to hold our attention, even though most viewers have gone from anticipating the latest music video to watching what the cast of "Jersey Shore" will do next.

Take a look back through MTV's history, as it's evolved from an authority on what the cool kids are watching to what some would call a highly addictive, albeit perhaps mindless source of entertainment.

'Deathly Hallows: Part 2' makes $1 billion

It's official: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" has brought in $1 billion globally.

According to BoxOfficeMojo.com, the eighth and final installment in the "Potter" franchise crossed the $1 billion mark on Sunday, accounting for both domestic and foreign markets. "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," meanwhile,  still hasn't been able to accumulate $1 billion global bragging rights although it opened two weeks ahead of "Potter."

"Deathly Hallows: Part 2's" climb to the $1 billion mark took just 19 days, and the movie tied with "Avatar" for the fastest rise to that box office amount. With the film's total so far being $1.008 billion, "Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is now ranked eighth on the site's all-time highest global box office chart, surpassing "The Dark Knight."

The 'Entourage' has relationship problems

Now that the house is burned down thanks to Turtle’s failed attempt to put out a joint, the guys are living in a hotel.

The worst part - or the best, depending on how you slice it - about the guys losing their home is that they have to revert to their 2004 fashions. Turtle is back in a New York Knicks jersey and ball cap, while Drama went back in time and raided Target’s Japanimation Couture department.

Meanwhile, Vince has been busy writing a script with big half-brother Drama in the lead. At a whopping 20 pages and littered with mistakes, Vince thinks he has something. I’ll go ahead and say it: I’m a fan of Vince the movie star, but Vince the budding filmmaker? Not so much.

Arsenio Hall: I'd like another talk show

Arsenio Hall wouldn't mind a little more late night action.

Deadline reports that during a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, the former talk show host indicated that he would be willing to return to the small screen.

"I'd have to change my name to Nick Cannon and live with Mariah [Carey]," Hall joked. "But I think it's a perfect time for that, personally. Give me a microphone. My son's 11 and he can drive himself to school. I'm ready to host!"
