Today's news you might've missed:

  • If you're harboring a secret crush on Sofia Vergara, you might be in luck: Rumor has it she's split from her boyfriend of two-plus years, Nick Loeb. [Page Six]
  • Vergara's supposed break-up is said to have been picked up on at this week's Met gala, one place Kim Kardashian actually was not. Know where else she hasn't been? On the cover of gala co-chair Anna Wintour's Vogue - and if you believe recent reports, neither of those occurrences are by coincidence. [RadarOnline]
  • Now that Tony Lucca's apologized for his role in this season's "The Voice" drama, so has Christina Aguilera. "She just wanted to clear the air a little bit," Lucca said. "This became much more of a dramatic thing than she ever intended." [Us Weekly]
  • Rapper/actor/reality star Ice T's instructions are our command: "SUPER EXCLUSIVE NEWS: SVU has officially been renewed for season #14. Tell a hater." We're not sure if any of you are haters, but wanted to keep our bases covered. [Ice T's Twitter]
  • Be careful that this "Saturday Night Live" parody of women reading "Fifty Shades of Grey" doesn't become a real life tale on Mother's Day, moms of the world. You see, doors tend to come with these things called locks... [HuffPo]
  • A (hopefully just as kick-a**) sequel to 2010's "Kick-A**" could head into production by August. [Deadline]

Against Me!'s Tom Gabel speaks on being transgender

Tom Hiddleston isn't done with 'The Avengers'

After two movies playing Thor's villainous brother Loki - most recently in the record-breaking blockbuster "The Avengers" - Tom Hiddleston says the chances are "very high indeed" that the character will return in "Thor 2." (As for the just-announced "Avengers" sequel, that's still anyone's guess.)

But out of all of them, he particularly enjoyed going toe-to-toe with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow.

But it turns out the inspiration behind one of his most memorable roles - Willy Wonka in 2005’s “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” - came from someone who once occupied the Oval Office.

The actor spilled the beans on "Ellen" Tuesday, saying his zany character in the remake of the 1971 classic “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” was actually modeled, in part, after former President Bush. (In the clip, Depp didn't specify whether it was the senior George Bush or his son George W., although many assume the latter.)
