Proud father Robert Downey, Jr. has gushed about his newborn daughter Avri Roel in a sweet Facebook.com post following her birth on Tuesday (04Nov14).
The Iron Man star took to his social networking page on Wednesday morning (05Nov14) to share his joy with fans, hours after reports about the new addition first surfaced online. Confirming the news, he writes, "After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project."
Joking about his penchant for snapping photos of the tot, he adds, "Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, 'Dad! You are embarrassing me... I'm 30, this has gotta stop.' "Yep...Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th... she's 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan's traits that have seemingly overwritten my 'junk DNA.' "I'll post pics here + there when I'm not too busy staring..."
He added the tweet, "Girl Joy!! Avri Roel Downey, 7lbs, 20 in (inches)., 3:22 a.m. 11-4-14... Pretty like mama, and dimples like my uncle Jim!"
The new arrival is the couple's second child - a sister for their son Exton, who was born in 2012.
Downey, Jr. is also dad to 21-year-old Indio from his first marriage to actress Deborah Falconer.
He married Susan in 2005.
"I saw those commercials and I immediately called SNL and I said, 'This has to stop.'" Funnyman Jim Carrey on his spot-on impression of Matthew McConaughey in the Lincoln car commercial spoof, which aired while the comedian was hosting U.S. sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live last month (Oct14).
Actress Reese Witherspoon narrowly escaped a traffic fine on Monday (03Nov14) after her parking meter expired while she was attending a boxing class in Los Angeles. The Legally Blonde star had left her Range Rover by the side of a street in Brentwood, but she failed to put enough money in her meter and a police officer had started to punch in her details on his handheld device by the time she returned to her car.
However, Witherspoon, who was photographed smiling at the officer, appeared to charm her way out of trouble and he reportedly cancelled the ticket after recognising the Oscar winner.
The 38 year old was subsequently allowed to drive away without a citation.
Monday's brush with the law ended more amicably than her previous run-in with cops last year (13), when she was arrested for disorderly conduct after she was caught on camera arguing with a policeman.
She infamously tried to use her celebrity status to convince the officer to let her and her husband Jim Toth go after he was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI).
She recently opened up about the incident, saying, "I think it was a moment where people realised that I wasn't exactly what they thought I was... I think that I showed I have a complexity that people didn't know about. It's part of human nature. I made a mistake; we all make mistakes. The best you can do is say sorry and learn from it and move on."
Witherspoon was fined after pleading no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct, while Toth was sentenced to 40 hours of community service, ordered to complete an alcohol education programme and placed on 12 months' probation.
Fifty Shades Of Grey actor Jamie Dornan hid the fact that he was a model in his early career as he wasn't "hugely comfortable" with the title.
The British star, who has posed for Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Armani, would tell acquaintances he was an actor as he was haunted by the reaction of his professor father's friends when they discovered his profession.
He tells Britain's The Observer Magazine, "I wouldn't tell (people) I was a model. I'd always say I was an actor. But the fact that I lied about what I did proves that I mustn't have been hugely comfortable with the label. I'm still haunted by the reaction my dad got when he told his friends what I did for a living."
We've watched their characters fall in love on the big screen and in our living rooms. We cried as we watched them endure heartache and unrequited love. We cheered when someone made the first move and they overcame obstacles. Who says true love can only happen in the movies? Here are 14 pairs of actors we believe have too much chemistry and history to not be together in real life. We must wait patiently until they realize their happy ending.
14. Keira Knightely and Orlando Bloom
It was there tortured, forbidden relationship in Pirates of the Carribean that hooked us in 2003. The beautiful pair couldn't stay away despite the difficult circumstances. If nothing else is worth it, they should get together just because the kids would have great hair.
13. Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey
In so many ways, Grey's Anatomy is one of the most heart-breaking shows out there. With characters like Izzie Stevens and Lexie Grey undergoing so much loss, it was important to have Meredith and Derek to cheer us up. We think Patrick's silliness would be the perfect balance to Ellen's toughness!
12. Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski
It's this couple that we got so attached to when they were on TV, we can't let them go We've grown with Pam and Jim over the years and gotten to watch their relationship unfold. We beg you, Jenna and John, to grant us that same pleasure again!
11. Ellen Page and Michael Cera
In Juno, Ellen and Michael play an adorably young and naive pair that despite everything, really cared for one another. The actors' quirky personalities and sweet dispositions would work just as well in real life, in our opinions. Ellen's recent coming out speech, though eloquently said and so touching, may pose a problem for this pair.
10. Laura Prepon and Taylor Schilling
On-screen, Piper and Alex cannot get away from one another. Despite their ability to poorly influence each other, the two are drawn to each other. Laura even admits that the chemistry with Taylor is there when she interviewed with After Ellen. Here's to hoping the same magnetic pull is between the two actresses!
9. Jennifer Aniston and David Scwimmer
Ross waited so long for Rachel to love him in Friends ,that we're not giving up hope on this one. Even though it's been 20 years since Friends aired, we believe in the powerful and patient love that David and Jennifer will one day experience!
8. Leighton Meester and Ed Westwick
One of TV's most monumental couples was the once-surprising pair of Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass. At first Blair's high maintenance and Chucks elusiveness made them seem destined for failure, but they defied obstacle after obstacle and ended up together. How do they not see that Leighton's sweet feminity and Ed's tough masculinity would be optimal?
7. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
A favorite couple of all times, Kate and Leonardo's chemistry is evident time and time again. Whether it's their long-time friendship or Kate's comment that "Leo is my love of my life," we can't let go of the talented and beautiful pair.
6. Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson
This one is less because of the actors chemistry together, but more for the fantasy of Harry and Hermoine dating in real life. The fictional couple was so important to so many as they were growing up, that we believe Emma and Daniel should suck it up and date for the fans!
5. Zoey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
This quirky pair has felt right since they starred in (500) Days of Summer together. According to HelloGiggles, Zoey's website, the pair have know each other since 2000. They even sang in a YouTube video together. If the way they make music is any indicator of their relationship success, we can tell you it's going to be beautiful.
4. Amy Poehler and Adam Scott
Ben and Leslie proved that friendship is the the best foundation for any relationship. The wedding episode as well as the entire "I love you, and I like you" concept has taken the viewers by storm. Amy said in a recent Q&A with Reddit that she thinks Adam "is a great actor, he's a great kisser, has a GREAT head of hair," so maybe her infatuation can grow with time like Leslie's did.
3. Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel
Throughout the many seasons of How I Met Your Mother, Lily and Marshall remained one of the most stable and fun couples on TV. They were never overly romantic and were always being goofy with each other. Alyson and Jason's humor and comfort with each other after nine seasons must be able to translate outside of work.
2. Julia Roberts and Richard Gere
Between Runaway Bride and Pretty Woman, this unstoppable pair had us truly feeling the depths of their on-screen love. Richard's characters were always taken by Julia's characters' spirit and joy, so we don't see why that would change off set!
1. Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling
The Notebook has gone down as one of the most-beloved romance movies of our time. For good reason! Rachel and Ryan's passion and chemistry with one another is unmistakable. The pair even reinacted their kiss when they won the MTV Best Kiss Award in 2005 and as well as dated until 2007. Sorry, Eva Mendes, but these too are clearly meant to be.
Tommy Lee Jones made it clear he was not a Jim Carrey fan when the odd couple teamed up for 1995 movie Batman Forever by telling the funnyman exactly what he thought of him during an awkward restaurant meeting. Carrey was thrilled to discover his soon-to-be co-star was dining feet away from him at a posh diner just before the two actors suited up as The Riddler and Two-Face in the blockbuster, and decided to introduce himself.
He tells U.S. shock jock Howard Stern, "I was really looking forward to working with Tommy because he was a fantastic actor, and he still is. I love him. I mean, he's amazing. But he was a little crusty...
"I think he was just a little freaked out because Dumb and Dumber had come out on the same weekend as (his film) Cobb, and Cobb (about baseball legend Ty Cobb) was his big swing for the fences, pardon the pun. And that didn't work out, and it freaked him out.
"I walked into a restaurant the night before our big scene in The Riddler's lair and the maitre d' said, 'You're working with Tommy Lee Jones, aren't you...?' He said, 'He's in the back corner'.
"I went up to say hi and the blood drained from his face in such a way that I realised that I had become the face of his pain or something. And he got kind of shaking and hugged me and said, 'I hate you. I really don't like you... I cannot sanction your buffoonery'."
Rock 'n' roll veteran Jerry Lee Lewis has billionaire philanthropist Steve Bing to thank for his new lease of life after The Killer's famous superfan insisted on getting his hero the help he needed to overcome a bout of poor health. Doctors prescribed heavy medication when Lewis' back pain started becoming a huge issue a decade ago, but they put the Great Ball of Fire hitmaker into a fug of depression and even his closest friends and bandmates feared the worst.
When Big learned his hero was struggling, he stepped in to make sure he got the best help available.
The businessman also helped the rocker sort out his financial problems and fixed his teeth.
Lewis' longtime drummer Jim Keltner tells Rolling Stone, "He helped get Jerry Lee in a situation where he wasn't being given hard meds for various ailments."
The health intervention has given the 79 year old a new outlook on life and he has started recording with his band again for the first time in years.
Keltner adds, "I remember doing an... interview with him and his eyes were just spinning. You weren't seeing the real Jerry Lee."
Jim Carrey showed off his singing skills as host of comedy show Saturday Night Live at the weekend (25Oct14) as he performed a new track, called Pecan Pie, dressed as new character Helvis. The funnyman dressed in an all-red, sequined jumpsuit and donned devil horns as he explained that was his 2014 Halloween costume.
During his stint as host, Carrey also poked fun at Matthew McConaughey's new Lincoln car commercials and appeared in a hilarious sketch, in which bogus members of the funnyman's family showed up to a reunion, mimicking his various film characters.
Carrey's Dumb & Dumber sidekick Jeff Daniels switched characters to play the funnyman's Lloyd Christmas.
Singer Rita Ora joined rapper Iggy Azalea for a surprise performance of their hit single Black Widow on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live on Saturday (25Oct14). Azalea also took part in a comedic sketch with host Jim Carrey as she performed a zany reenactment of Sia's Chandelier video.
