"I was standing on... the tall bars and... (the instructor) let go of my ankles and I fell forward and I blocked my fall by (tucking my arms into my chest) and I broke both my arms." Actress Emma Stone gave up on her gymnastics dreams as a child after breaking both her arms while trying to perform a stunt.
The Office ended May 16, 2013. That might only be a year and a half ago, but with fall TV in full swing, The Office fans can feel the show's presence missing from our lives. Can't they just reunite and make new episodes already? Every other show/movie is getting redone or sequels or put on Netflix, why not skip the waiting period and do it now?
1. This show taught us amazing life lessons, like that you can be both feared and loved.
2. We also learned this very useful bit of advice about mistletoe.
3. The show gave us aspirations that we could do more than just sit in an office.
4. Kelly Kapoor is the reason we know what to say to sound smart.
5. And Michael broke the very important news over who loves pizza.
6. Kevin taught us all what dreams really are.
7. Our inner child smiled when Dwight used this insult we've been throwing at our friends since we could read.
8. This show introduced u s to a new National holiday.
9. They gave us hope to one day create such an amazing holiday card with our own co-workers.
10. Characters like Jim created places no one ever knew they wanted, but once we heard of them, we needed them.
11. But speaking of Jim, The Office also showed us that office romances can bloom into the most powerful and amazing things in the world.
12. The show gave us the perfect insult for Negative Nancys.
13. It also reminded us there are too many people on this planet.
14. Prison Mike let everyone know why we should never wind up in prison.
15. Stanley gave everyone a new life motto.
16. Jim and Dwight gave us very tough decisions. Did we love Jim as Dwight?
17. Or Dwight as Jim, more?
18. And honestly, is TV really even funny anymore if people aren't force-feeding Kevin vegetables?

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day has more questionable elements than it has titular adjectives. Elements that make you wonder just how certain parties — the ones involved that you love and to whom you choose to extend countless benefits of the doubt — signed off on this mess.
We watch these parties — Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, and guest stars Megan Mullally and Dick Van Dyke — trot through the muck of a day that just gets worse for all parties. Carell and Garner play parents to Alexander Cooper (Ed Oxenbould), a 12-year-old boy who is no stranger to bad days. When Alexander wishes that his family would finally know what it's like to live under Murphy's Law, the whole Cooper clan — including both parents, a lovestruck older brother (Dylan Minnette), and a budding thespian middle sister (Kerris Dorsey) — succumb to misfortune in the least creative of ways.
While the simple children's book source material gives way to a film intended for the same demographic, it shows that director Miguel Arteta has only worked in more "mature" material up to this point. A legion of poop jokes result from a fatal misprint in the picture book published by mother Kelly (Garner). Dad Ben (Carell) nearly fouls up his son's birthday party when he orders burly strippers instead of... well, we actually don't know what he thought they were. But worst of all, teenage sister Emily (Dorsey) gets loopy after downing an entire bottle of cold medicine, an antic that is played for laughs.
Then we have the more tame material, which lands lazily, unfunnily, and without any energy whatsoever... a miracle, considering how hectic this film is. With so many characters running around between job interviews, prom dates, school plays, and public book readings, you'd imagine a burst of life force to come to fruition somewhere along the line. Instead, the effectively charmless, brainless, and occasionally toxic movie falls very short of its electric source material... but very much lives up to its title.

Actor Ansel Elgort is expanding his resume by producing electronic dance music. The Divergent star has been making music for the past several years under the moniker Ansolo and his work is starting to be recognised.
He tells Live! with Kelly and Michael, "Music's always been a big part of my life... and then I realised this whole electronic dance music thing... so I started producing this dance music about four years ago and it's taken off just recently.
"I have a bunch of songs out, one of my songs went number nine on the iTunes dance charts, it's called Totem."
And while, Elgort has found fame in Hollywood, many of his music fans don't know he is also an actor.
"The funny thing is, people that are in dance don't know that AnSolo is Ansel Elgort, because AnSolo is not that big. I was just at Electric Zoo (music festival)... and there was these dance fans that were like, 'Oh, Ansolo, I love Totem...' and all these people kept coming up to me and asking for pictures and everyone was like, 'Dude, it's so crazy you only had like two or three releases and everyone wants pictures with you'..."
Sportsman-turned-U.S. TV host Michael Strahan is set to make his feature film acting debut in the Magic Mike sequel.
The former American football player has lobbied to be in the film since he heard the original was in production and now star and producer Channing Tatum has given him a part in the latest movie. The ex-New York Giants star says, "I'm getting ready to do something that's making me really nervous. I'm about to do something that started as a joke... and I decided to reenact something from his movie (on morning show Live! With Kelly & Michael) and so then he kept messing around with me and he wrote me into the next Magic Mike XXL movie..."
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Banks and Donald Glover have joined the all-star cast, which also features Jada Pinkett Smith, Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell.
The film will be released on 3 July (15).
Actress Connie Britton was left petrified after her son's scary encounter with ghosts.
The Nashville star was shooting a film in New Orleans this summer (14) and rented a house which turned out to be haunted.
She explains, "We would sort of hear things bumping around... One night I woke up and I thought I heard my son in the other room... I started to go back to sleep and I just jolted up and I got out of my room... and my friend was carrying my son up the stairs with him... "He was screaming and crying and I'm like, 'What's going on?' and he says, 'I don't want to go back in there, I don't want to see those boys in my room'. "I was freaking out, but the scariest part about it was the way my son was looking at me. His eyes were just wide and he was like, 'I don't want to go back in there with those boys, get those boys out', and I'm like, 'It's OK'. Meanwhile, I'm shaking... Of course I did not sleep the rest of that night, my son did... and he ended up being fine and we ended up staying."
Neil Patrick Harris' son Gideon shunned his role as ring bearer at the actor's wedding to David Burtka in favour of becoming an "orange boy". The How I Met Your Mother star and his partner Burtka wed in a castle in Perugia, Italy over the weekend (06-07Sep14) and they decided to give their three-year-old twins special roles in the ceremony.
However, Gideon was not happy holding the rings and instead chose to hand out oranges to guests at the nuptials.
Sharing the news with viewers on U.S. morning show Live with Kelly & Michael on Monday (08Sep14), TV presenter Kelly Ripa, who was a guest at the event, explained, "(Daughter) Harper was going to be the flower girl and Gideon was going to be the ring bearer, and he said, 'I don't want to be the ring bearer!' And they said, 'OK, well, what do you want to be?' And he said, 'I want to be the orange boy.' And he passed out oranges to everybody as he came down the aisle...!
"He came up with it (the role) on his own. He had his little tux and his top hat and he was passing out oranges."
Ripa continued, "Later on, during the night, we were dancing (and) I said to him, 'Look, Gideon, I saved your orange because I'm going to keep it forever.' And he goes, 'Oh, you shouldn't! It's so delicious!'"
Ripa went on to reveal the "beautiful family affair" also included magic tricks, fireworks and a special toast from close friends Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish, who acknowledged the progress made in the global fight for equal rights for lesbian and gay couples.
She added, "(They) got up and said, 'You know, many, many years ago, this would not be possible. We're so thankful and grateful to everybody for supporting us and our families, and how our children (John and Furnish's sons and Harris and Burtka's kids) have each other to sort of look to each other as another example of a family like ours and how the definition of a family is changing, always.'"
Elton also thrilled guests by performing during the reception.
Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kelly Osbourne were among the stars who mourned the death of legendary comedienne Joan Rivers at her funeral in New York on Sunday (07Sep14). Record mogul Clive Davis, actors Matthew Broderick, Rosie O'Donnell, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth and Bernadette Peters, funnywoman Kathy Griffin, fashion designers Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors, property mogul Donald Trump and newswomen Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer also turned out to pay their final respects to Rivers, who was remembered in a private ceremony at the Temple Emanu-El synagogue, where she was a member.
Hundreds of fans lined the streets outside the temple as inside, U.S. shockjock Howard Stern delivered a touching eulogy to the comedic icon, crediting her with fighting "the stereotype that women couldn't be funny".
He even managed to raise a few laughs from guests by quipping, "(Rivers was) the best friend in the world... a big sister... a crazy aunt at a bar mitzvah."
Broadway star Audra McDonald performed Nat King Cole classic Smile, before additional tributes from news anchor Deborah Norville, New York Post columnist Cindy Adams and Rivers' only child, daughter Melissa, who thanked everyone for their condolences, saying, "We are humbled."
X-Men star Hugh Jackman helped to bring the ceremony to a close, honouring Rivers' memory with a rendition of Peter Allen song, Quiet Please, There's a Lady on Stage, which features the repeated lyrics, "Put your hands together", while a band of bagpipe players performed as mourners filed out of the temple.
Rivers died on Thursday (04Sep14), a week after suffering a cardiac and respiratory arrest during a routine throat operation.
The exact cause of death is still under investigation after an initial autopsy proved inconclusive.
The 81 year old's body had been cremated on Saturday (06Sep14), ahead of Sunday's funeral service.
Reports suggest she will be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California, where fellow late icons Michael Jackson, Clark Gable and Walt Disney are also interred.
Rivers' publicist has asked for donations to be made to her favourite charities, meal delivery service God's Love, We Deliver, Guide Dogs for the Blind and California grief support centre Our House, in lieu of flowers.
Robert De Niro and Zac Efron are teaming up to star in new adult comedy Driving Dick Kelly. The film stars De Niro as a recently widowed, salacious U.S. Army veteran who manages to trick his uptight grandson, played by Efron, to drive him to Florida for spring break.
According to TheWrap.com, veteran actors Jeff Bridges and Michael Douglas were also up for the role that eventually went to De Niro.
Efron, who performed an impersonation of De Niro in college comedy Neighbors earlier this year (14), previously starred in 2011's New Year's Eve with the legendary actor, but the two did not share any scenes together.

In an appearance on the Live with Kelly and Michael inimitable Dame Helen Mirren was forced to relive the moment when she twerked in front of the world whilst receiving Harvard’s Hasty Pudding Award. She handled the embarrassing moment as only she could—with grace, humor, and even more twerking.
Helen Mirren: Oscar-winner, beloved thespian, and twerker extraordinaire. If Miley Cyrus has given us nothing else, she has given us this winning moment in internet history. And for that, we thank her.
