Mila Kunis: Body not the same after 'Black Swan'

Mila Kunis didn't play coy about the hard work required to replicate a dancer's physique in her 2010 movie "Black Swan," and the actress says her body hasn't been the same since.

After working to drop 20 pounds for the Darren Aronofsky film, "My shape is different," the 28-year-old actress tells Harper's Bazaar in the magazine's April issue.

"When I got down to 95 pounds, I was muscles, like a little brick house, but skin and bones. When I gained it back it went to completely different areas...I'd be happy if my a** got bigger, [but] all the weight that left my chest went to my side hip, my stomach."

Susan Sarandon on aging gracefully

Hollywood is notoriously tough on older women, but as Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep and Susan Sarandon have proved, there's nothing at all to fear about being seasoned.

Sarandon, 65, has watched herself mature on the big screen for decades. Now starring alongside Jason Segel, Ed Helms and Judy Greer in this month's comedy "Jeff, Who Lives At Home," the actress reveals what she's learned about aging gracefully in the business.

"The thing that I finally told my daughter, which dawned on me at one point, was that you have to love your imperfections, because that's what makes you you," Sarandon says. "Not that I would be so eager to jump around with my clothes off at this point in my life, but understanding that your face is you, and whatever your anxieties are, don't take it out on your body."

Patricia Heaton apologizes for Sandra Fluke comments

Rush Limbaugh isn't the only one apologizing for inflammatory remarks made toward Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke.

Last week, actress Patricia Heaton unleashed a series of controversial tweets directed at Fluke after she spoke up in support of broad health care coverage that included contraception, but Heaton's since apologized.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "The Middle" actress posted (and has since removed) remarks such, "If every Tweaton [which is what she calls her followers] sent Georgetown Gal one condom, her parents wouldn't have to cancel basic cable, & she would never reproduce - sound good?"

Barenaked Ladies to score 'Animal House' musical

"Animal House" didn't make our list of movies we wish would become musicals, but we think this is a solid idea nonetheless.

On Monday, the 30th anniversary of "Animal House" star John Belushi's death, Universal Pictures Stage Productions announced that the 1978 film is going to become a musical, the New York Times reports.

"Book of Mormon's" Casey Nicholaw is on board as choreographer and director, and The Barenaked Ladies will provide the score.
