Scarlett Johansson on mom's influence

Scarlett Johansson received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Wednesday, and the 27-year-old actress says she has her mom to thank for her success.

"One of the most important things [my mom] did growing up was that she always said to me that I could do whatever I wanted as long as I really, really wanted it," Johansson told CNN. "It allowed me to constantly sort of reassess what my priorities were and it grounded me in a way, and allowed me to come back to square one and say, 'What am I doing here, and why am I doing it?'"

It's a lesson Johansson thinks all kids should learn, "no matter what," she said. "That they should be doing something because they're passionate about it and for no other reason.”

Amidst complaints, Popchips CEO apologizes for Ashton Kutcher ad

Ashton Kutcher's participation in a Popchips video campaign has gone viral, alright, but because of complaints of racism.

The minute-and-a-half long video debuted Wednesday, and presents a string of "bachelors" who are part of a "world wide" dating service, with 34-year-old Kutcher portraying all of the eligible men, including Bollywood producer Raj.

Kutcher, wearing a wig, brown makeup and a mustache, tells viewers in what's likely intended to be an Indian accent that he's looking for "the most delicious thing on the planet."

Overheard: Kim K. on Kanye's 'wardrobe malfunction'

You might've seen a curious photograph floating around on the Web earlier this week that depicted Kanye West's pants falling down a bit as he exited a car with Kim Kardashian.

There've been a number of theories as to how Kanye got caught showing off some thigh (as well as a peek at his underwear) while on a supposed "date night" last Friday, but now Kim is explaining what really happened. As she told E! at the network's upfront presentations, it's not nearly as salacious as one might think:

"He was getting out of the car and the buckle... his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick, and his belt was really heavy. It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional. It was not scandalous."

But as far as the rest of the rumors swirling about her relationship with her friend Kanye, the reality star still wasn't commenting.
