RUMER WILLIS showed off her pie-making skills on late-night TV in America on Friday (11Sep09) when she presented TV host JIMMY KIMMEL with a coconut banana-cream pie she had made before his show. The comedian made Willis try a slice first, fearing her prankster stepfather Ashton Kutcher had filled the pie with "Vaseline and shaving cream". Kimmel was so impressed, he quipped, "I'm going to finish this in the car on the way home."
The mogul's low-budget films about African-American life always seem to hit to hot spot - and he's done it again with I Can Do Bad All By Myself, which stars Taraji P. Henson and features Mary J. Blige in her first film role.
The movie, Perry's seventh in four years, made $24 million (£16 million) at the box office in its opening weekend to cruise to number one.
He more than doubled up on his nearest competition - Tim Burton's new film 9, which took in $10.8 million (£7.2 million) in weekend receipts.
Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Sandra Bullock comedy All About Steve and horror film The Final Destination round out the new top five.
New releases Sorority Row, starring Rumer Willis, and Kate Beckinsale's thriller Whiteout debuted at six and seven respectively.
Her middle daughter with ex-husband Bruce Willis, Scout, left the family home to continue her studies at university.
The 18 year old's elder sister Rumer revealed earlier this month (Sep09) that the teen is set to study either literature or archaeology.
And it seems Scout has made her decision - her mum Moore helped her pack up her belongings to start her first term of further education.
The actress writes on her personal Twitter.com page, "Just pausing 2 (sic) reflect on what a landmark moment it was moving my daughter in2 (sic) college this weekend. So excited 4 (sic) her & I had a few tears too!"
"People are curious about how much influence my last name has. But, at the end of the day, I just keep saying that if I get hired for a job, it's not my parents that are going to be acting in the movie. It's me." RUMER WILLIS insists her famous parents, DEMI MOORE and BRUCE WILLIS, don't help her land film roles.

The 21 year old, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, has embarked on an acting career in recent years, appearing in teen TV show 90210 and horror re-make Sorority Row.
But her co-stars in the movie are urging her to consider life as a musician - because her impromptu after-hours singing sessions blew them all away.
Jamie Chung says, "We had a grand piano in our hotel and we'd come in and she was just jamming and singing. She has the most incredible voice."
The 18 year old graduated from high school in June (09), but she's not planning on following her famous family into showbiz - she is continuing with her studies.
But the teenager is still unsure which career path she wants to follow, and is torn between two different subjects to study.
Her elder sister Rumer says, "I have to brag for a moment. My sister is going to university! Scout's going to study literature or archaeology."
"My little sister was sitting on Ridley Scott's lap and my mum did this scene where they dumped lots of crabs on her and she was shut in a cage, and she starts screaming and it scared my sister so much that she peed on Ridley's leg." RUMER WILLIS on her family outings to her mother DEMI MOORE's movie sets, including a notorious visit to the filming of G.I. JANE.
Barton was allegedly placed under involuntary psychiatric hold at a hospital in Los Angeles in July (09) after reportedly suffering a meltdown, while Lohan's wild antics include two drink-driving arrests, 84 minutes in jail, and a stint in rehab.
Willis, 21, admits it's hard for young stars to cope with the pressure of fame - because the lure of showbiz parties can often lead to ruin.
She tells Glamour magazine, "I do feel very sorry for Mischa Barton. This whole world is very enticing. When you start getting famous it's exciting. But I've grown up having to deal with what's real and what's not and I just don't care about that type of thing. I have better things to do.
"I think it's important that the only people you have in your life are people who support you and are positive."
