Actress Gwyneth Paltrow took the plunge for charity on Wednesday (20Aug14) after nominating her estranged husband Chris Martin to also endure the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The Oscar winner was given the task of pouring freezing water over her head to raise cash and awareness for the ALS Association by three celebrities, including her personal trainer Tracy Anderson, chef Jose Andres and lifestyle expert Martha Stewart.
In a video posted on Instagram.com, Paltrow, clad in a bikini, tells her followers she is donating money to the charity and then nominates Martin, Cameron Diaz, and her fashion designer pal Stella McCartney for the stunt.
A friend then pours the ice cold water over the actress, and she runs out of frame screaming from the shock.
Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman announced their separation in March (14), and both are rumoured to have moved on from the marriage - the actress has been linked to Glee producer Brad Falchuk, while Martin has reportedly been romancing newly-single Jennifer Lawrence.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is raising funds to battle ALS, also known as motor neurone disease and Lou Gehrig's disease.
"My daughter's 18 now and I let her see my films that are rated R with the... language and the sexual content and all that... because I wanna arm her for the world." Movie star Martin Lawrence has turned his eldest daughter onto his risque roles and controversial comedy specials.
"I just spoke to (producer) Jerry Bruckheimer... and he said it's real, they're working on the script and they're getting close. It all looks good." Martin Lawrence on the development of a third Bad Boys movie with Will Smith.
Funnyman Martin Lawrence has started working out regularly in a bid to keep his blood pressure in check. The Bad Boys star learned he was dealing with high blood pressure during a recent visit to his doctor and decided it was time to start looking after himself.
He says, "I'm just working out, exercising every now and then, every other day, and just eating right.
"I have to get my blood pressure down... but I still got the gut (belly) though. All this looks like pudding right now... but it's good; gives your lady something to hold on to. They can pat it too."
But Lawrence tells U.S. chat show host Conan O'Brien he'll never become a gym fiend, who works out daily and takes on hardcore exercise routines, like running in a sweatsuit.
He adds, "I don't do that no more (sic). I did that and went into a coma... Do not run in a plastic suit, do not do that... I was trying to lose weight and I used to box and that's how I trained, running and wearing plastic.
"I picked the hottest day of the summer and the next thing I know I was asleep on the ground."
Daniel Radcliffe has put himself forward as a young Iggy Pop because he'd love to play the punk icon on the big screen. A big fan of punk music, the Harry Potter star admits he'd relish portraying The Stooges mainman if the role was ever offered to him.
He tells U.S. radio host Eric J Lawrence, "We've got a similar, gnarly sort of, slightly strange skinny bodies."
Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins portrayed Iggy Pop in his movie debut, CBGB, last year (13).
Radcliffe recently dismissed reports suggesting he was in talks to play the villain in the next James Bond film, but also urged filmmakers to keep him in mind if a film featuring DC Comics superhero Nightwing ever became a reality.
A collection of movie and music memorabilia including Marilyn Monroe's red sequined gown from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes will go on display at Christie's in London. The free exhibition, called Famous and Infamous, will also feature the desert robes of British officer D.E. Lawrence, the inspiration for Lawrence Of Arabia, and a Stetson hat worn by John Wayne.
Anyone who has seen Pitch Perfect loves Anna Kendrick and her dry sense of humor. She is easily earning the title of #1 Girl Crush, but she shouldn't just be considered a girl crush. She deserves to be everyone's celebrity crush, because she's freaking awesome.

If you weren’t crushing on her before, I’m sure you are now:
Hay, gurl, hay!
Oscar winner Sandra Bullock has topped a new Forbes list ranking the highest-paid actresses of 2014. The Gravity star has raked in $51 million (£30 million) in the year from June, 2013, according to magazine editors, placing her ahead of The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence, who comes in second with $34 million (£20 million), thanks to her salary from X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Jennifer Aniston is third with $31 million (£18.2 million), while Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie round out the top five.
Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have reportedly split for the second time. The X-Men: Days of Future Past stars began dating in 2011, but parted ways in January, 2013. They rekindled their romance months later, but sources tell Eonline.com report the actors have split again.
One insider says, "(The breakup) was very amicable. They spent a lot of time apart because of work and it was difficult on their relationship."
Earlier this year (14), Lawrence explained she and Hoult agreed to ignore each other while at work in a bid to avoid the frustrations of trying to keep a long-distance love affair alive, and simply give each other the space to work.
She told Marie Claire magazine, "When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super busy. Obviously you know what they're doing, and you trust them."
The news of their split comes as photos of Hoult enjoying a sushi meal with Twilight star Kristen Stewart hit the Internet.
Pop star Lorde has landed the honour of curating the album soundtrack for the upcoming The Hunger Games movie sequel. The Royals hitmaker will hand pick the artists she wants to appear on the accompanying musical project for director Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and the teen will also provide the first single from the disc.
She says, "Curating the soundtrack for such a hotly-anticipated film was a challenge, but I jumped at the chance.
"The cast and story are an inspiration for all musicians participating and, as someone with cinematic leanings, being privy to a different creative process has been a unique experience. I think the soundtrack is definitely going to surprise people."
The soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, will be released this autumn (14), ahead of the film's premiere in November (14).
