Birthday twins: Gwyneth Paltrow and Lil Wayne

Gwyneth Paltrow and Lil Wayne share a birthday today, which made us wonder what else these two stars have in common.

A decade apart - Paltrow blows out 39 candles today, while Weezy celebrates 29 years - this is a musically talented pair. Weezy's made a successful career in the industry, and Paltrow sings - and occasionally raps - whenever possible.

Both know how to throw a party (dinner, or otherwise) and we'd imagine that if they ever combined their fetes, it's basically a given Beyonce - Paltrow's bestie, who Wayne's also worked with - and maybe even Madonna would be in attendance. (Wayne is featured on Madonna’s 2009 song, “Revolver," and Gwyn and Madge pal around, though they may have had a falling out. "Through thick and thin she's a constant in my life," Paltrow told V Magazine of Madonna in 2008.)

Kevin Bacon on how he played a teen in 'Footloose'

It's not a secret that plenty of the actors you see playing high school kids are no longer in their teens (maybe even knocking on 30, as was the case with "Beverly Hills 90210's" Gabrielle Carteris), and Kevin Bacon was no exception.

At 24, the up-and-comer had to portray a 17-year-old who'd recently relocated to a new high school for 1984's "Footloose."

In order to better fit the part, Bacon did his due diligence and asked to be enrolled in a local high school, as he explains in a featured clip from the deluxe DVD and Blu-ray of the classic, out today.

'Showbiz Tonight': Will MJ end up on trial instead of Conrad Murray?

Opening statements began today in the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray, and "Showbiz Tonight's" big question is whether Jackson will end up being on trial instead of Murray.

I think it is impossible to conceive that MJ’s history and behavior won’t be “on trial.” At the end of the day, though, the actions of Conrad Murray are what will matter.

The defense said today that Michael Jackson caused his own death while Dr. Murray was out of town and that Michael self-administered extra doses of propofol.

'Precious' director to tackle 'Valley of the Dolls'

Lee Daniels is famous for his film about the abuse an African-American girl in the Harlem projects suffers, but the “Precious” director is headed to a totally different world.

Daniels’ Hollywood-set “Valley of the Dolls” script has just been picked up by NBC, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The TV script is based on Jacqueline Susann's 1966 best-seller, and the 1967 movie adaptation that starred Patty Duke and Sharon Tate.
