While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Although we haven't seen proof that this happened - and we're not going to hold our breath for it - for some reason we're not surprised by reports that Chris Brown and Rihanna were spotted being awfully touchy-feely Tuesday night at a New York City club ... [Celebuzz]
  • Jennie Garth, if you haven't noticed, has slimmed down significantly - as she shows off in a bandage dress on the new cover of People magazine. The newly single actress says she's now 30 pounds lighter. [People]
  • We so hope this is true, for comedic value alone: Amanda Bynes "obsessively hates" Lindsay Lohan, and constantly rambles about "that b***h Lindsay" all the time." We need audio, gossipy inside source! [Us Weekly]
  • If we were to caption this Instagram photo from Oprah Winfrey, which shows the OWN CEO and her "Butler" co-star Terrence Howard in their final "good-bye" luv scene, it'd read: "Sexily smoking, and Terrence and I know it." [Oprah Winfrey's Twitter]
  • Valentino's sketch for Anne Hathaway's wedding gown is gawgeous - but it's also a whole lotta dress. Thoughts? [E!]
  • J.K. Rowling's venture into adult fiction may have been highly anticipated,  but it hasn't quite delivered in sales yet. In its first week, 157,00 copies of "The Casual Vacancy" were sold, making it no match for E.L. James' behemoth "Fifty Shades" trilogy. [EW]

Lena Dunham: 'Girls' will be more diverse in season 2

The backlash to Lena Dunham's "Girls" was swift and sustained as some rejected Dunham's racially monotone version of New York, but it looks like the critics have been heard.

The HBO series, which earned an Emmy nod with its freshman season for outstanding comedy as well as a nomination for producer/writer/director/star Dunham in the outstanding comedic actress category, will be more diverse with season 2.

Overheard: Why Daniel Craig can't live a normal life

Step into the well-heeled shoes of James Bond, and one can expect to acquire heightened status as a celebrity.

But that level of fame, "Skyfall" actor Daniel Craig tells Vanity Fair in its November issue, comes at a very personal price:

“You talk to people in the movie business who have been doing this 40 years, and they all say the difference is that, back in the day, you could go and have a drink in the bar, get drunk, fall over, have a good time, relax,whatever, and no one would know about it. But now everyone’s got a camera. Not that all I want to do is get drunk in a bar, but that’s an example. So you can’t live a normal life anymore. Because it will become public knowledge that you’ve whatever - gotten drunk in a bar or skinny-dipped on a beach or something. Things that normal people do occasionally. And in a way that’s kind of - I’ve got to be high-class. I’ve done a lot of things in my life. But you have to think in that way. Which is sad, because I like bars.”

Apparently Craig's fondness for watering holes has spread, as he joked about the number of times "I’ve sat in interviews like this in a bar or a hotel, and it’s 11 o’clock in the morning and someone sends a martini over,” Bond told the magazine. “And it’s like, 'Really? It’s 11 o’clock! Cheers! I’m not going to drink it.'”

Craig's interview with Vanity Fair will arrive on newsstands nationally October 9, with "Skyfall" arriving a month later.
