Daniel Radcliffe: J.K. Rowling's Pottermore is a mystery to me

Harry Potter fans aren't the only ones wondering what J.K. Rowling has planned for her new Pottermore Web site — even star Daniel Radcliffe has been left in the dark.

“I know nothing about that whatsoever,” Radcliffe tells the L.A. Times of the site, which features two owls, Rowling's signature, and a "Coming Soon" teaser touting the author's June 23 announcement about her new venture. “I’m sure that Jo will be writing a lot more in the coming years. I’m sure she has a lot more in her than we’ve read and a lot more stories to tell. As long as they don’t involve Harry, I’m quite happy to buy them."

Radcliffe, currently starring on Broadway in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," adds that he has no interest in reprising his role as the world's most famous boy wizard after "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" wraps up the film franchise in July.

"I don't know, the idea of going back to something after 10 or 20 years? At that point, I will have worked 20 years to establish a career outside of it," he explains, "and at that point to go back to it would feel a little self-defeating.”

Cameron Diaz talks sex with ex Justin Timberlake

In the upcoming raunchy comedy "Bad Teacher," Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake play high-school instructors who explore the subject of the birds and the bees with a fully clothed sex scene. For Diaz, getting intimate with her ex-boyfriend wasn't nearly as awkward as it might have been with another actor in the role.

"That would have been kind of weird to do with someone I didn't know and trust," the actress, who dated Timberlake from 2003 to 2007, tells the L.A. Times. "With somebody else I may not have known where it stood, but we know where it stands."

Diaz added that Timberlake gave his all to their over-the-top encounter.

'Big Bang Theory' star: Penny's last name is...?

If you're still wondering what Penny's last name is on "The Big Bang Theory," you're not the only one. Even the cast hasn't been clued in about Kaley Cuoco's character, claims star Jim Parsons.

"We really don't know. I've made suggestions. We all have. But nobody will take one," he tells The Wrap. "She really doesn't have one - unless they've been writing one over the summer break. When I left work, Penny had no last name."

Of course, that hasn't stopped the cast and crew from getting creative. FULL POST

Emma Roberts: Aunt Julia doesn't get me roles

She's one of Hollywood's hottest young actresses, but Emma Roberts insists her famous family isn't responsible for her career.

Roberts, who is the niece of Julia Roberts and daughter of Eric Roberts, tells PopEater, "[People] talk about nepotism, which I think is so ridiculous considering it's obviously not true. Because I've auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part. Also it's like, you know, maybe someone can get you one part but they can't really get you ten parts."

The "Scream 4" star, currently starring in "The Art of Getting By," adds that she gets especially annoyed with bloggers who write that she only gets cast because of her last name.
