Actress Dakota Johnson started 2015 free and single after splitting from Welsh rocker Matthew Hitt. The daughter of Hollywood veterans Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson was first photographed with Drowners musician Hitt last summer (14), when they were spotted walking arm-in-arm in New York City, but their romance reportedly fizzled out weeks before the release of her highly-anticipated erotic thriller Fifty Shades of Grey.
A source tells UsMagazine.com, "Sometime over the holidays, they broke up. Her life was getting too crazy and it wasn't something that he wanted to be a part of. It wasn't a bad break."
Johnson, 25, was previously linked to Last Man Standing actor Jordan Masterson in 2013, while Hitt, who moved to the Big Apple in 2011, is said to have dated model Atlanta de Cadenet, the daughter of Duran Duran star John Taylor and British TV personality Amanda De Cadenet.
Sam Smith was the toast of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (08Feb15), walking away with four of the six honors he was nominated for, including the coveted Record of the Year.
The British soul sensation kicked off his celebrations early after claiming the very first award of the televised show for Best New Artist. He soon followed it up with the Best Pop Vocal Album for In The Lonely Hour, and was back onstage towards the end of the Los Angeles ceremony to wrap up his big night with wins for Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Stay With Me.
Taking to the stage for the fourth time, Smith poked fun at the ex-boyfriend who inspired the album, saying, "This is the best night of my life. I wanna thank the man who this record is about... Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!"
Fellow six-time nominees Beyonce and Pharrell Williams each went home as triple winners, while Beck landed Best Rock Album and Album of the Year for Morning Phase - and almost had Kanye West repeat his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when he interrupted Taylor Swift to defend his pal Beyonce's honor. This time, the rapper approached Beck as he collected the Album of the Year accolade, which Beyonce was also nominated for, and pretended to head towards the mic, before laughing and returning to his seat in the front row - much to everyone's amusement.
AC/DC got the Grammy Awards off to a rocking start with a hits medley, while Madonna dazzled the Staples Center audience in a red and black matador costume to sing her new release Living For Love, and Rihanna, Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney staged the first ever performance of their new collaboration, FourFiveSeconds.
Other performance highlights at the event, hosted by LL Cool J, came from Ed Sheeran and Electric Light Orchestra frontman Jeff Lynne; Katy Perry, who honored victims of domestic violence with a powerful rendition of By The Grace of God; Sam Smith and Mary J. Blige's soulful collaboration on Stay With Me, and Pharrell Williams, who gave his Happy tune a gospel makeover, complete with Hans Zimmer on guitar and Lang Lang on piano.

Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus were among the guests at Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy Awards party where a moment of silence was held in honour of Whitney Houston's daughter. The music mogul's bash at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday (07Feb15) was tinged with sadness following the hospitalisation of Bobbi Kristina Brown, who was found unresponsive in a bath tub at her home in Georgia eight days ago.
Brown's mother, superstar singer Houston, drowned in a bath tub at the same hotel on the night of Davis' party in 2012, and guests at the 2015 event were urged to keep the 21 year old in their thoughts.
Davis was introduced by basketball legend Magic Johnson, who took time out from his speech to ask the audience to remember Brown, saying, "If we can, let's have 30 seconds of silence for (Houston's) daughter, who is in the hospital. We want to make sure she is OK and that she can recover from her accident."
Performers at the glitzy bash included Pharrell Williams, actor/musician Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige and Sam Smith, who opened the show with a cover of My Funny Valentine and then went on to sing his smash hit Stay With Me.
Rapper Iggy Azalea performed her hit Black Widow with Rita Ora before joining Jennifer Hudson for a rendition of their new collaboration, Trouble, while Meghan Trainor sang with John Legend.
The evening ended with a tribute to the Bee Gees, just hours after the only surviving member of the band, Barry Gibb, picked up a Grammys' Lifetime Achievement prize on behalf of the trio.
Davis' annual bash is held on the eve of the Grammy Awards, which are handed out at a ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday (08Feb15).
Swedish actress Malin Akerman kicked off 2015 with a nasty bout of food poisoning.
The Watchmen star has revealed she spent the first days of the new year battling ill health after being struck down with an upset stomach and a flu virus. She took to her Facebook.com page on Friday (09Jan15) to tell fans she is feeling better and even indulged in a Swedish Marabou chocolate bar.
She writes, "Nothing like a little taste of Sweden after 5 days of food poisoning and the flu to make me feel better! Marabou..."
As obsessive readers and fans of dismissing quality movies as inferior to their literary counterparts, it's important for us to know which books will head to the big screen ahead of time. How else will we know how Wild Reese will be, or what is going to happen to Peeta? Be reasonable. We've decided to use our research for the good of society and share the adaptations coming soon that we are most excited for.
1. The Spook's Apprentice - Joseph Delaney (Seventh Son)
Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes) is the seventh son of the seventh son, which gives him the ability to see things that others cannot: ghosts, ghasts, boggarts, and the like. He becomes an apprentice to John Gregory, the Spook (Jeff Bridges). Julianne Moore is set to play Mother Malkin, one of the most sinister witches who uses blood magic, luring young runaway women into care before sucking their blood to maintain her youth, who was then imprisoned by the Spook. Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou also star.
2. Fifty Shades of Grey - E.L. James
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, in case you somehow didn't know, are stepping into the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey for the adaptation of the incredibly successful erotic novel. Steele, a literature student, interviews Grey as a favor to her roommate, but quickly becomes entranced by this brilliant and handsome man who is unable to resist her. He admits his desire, but on his own terms; this is a man with a need to control everything. This is also probably going to be the movie with a bunch of heavy-breathing sweaty middle-aged women trying to control themselves in the theater. You've been warned.
3. In the Heart of the Sea - Nathaniel Philbrick
The last time Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth teamed up, they brought us one of the best films of 2013, Rush. Now, they're at it again (along with Cillian Murphy and Benjamin Walker) with this story of a whaleship attacked by one angry whale, leaving the crew shipwrecked and stranded for 90 days, thousands of miles from land. The true story inspired a little book by Herman Melville (played in the movie by our favorite, Ben Whishaw) entitled Moby-Dick.
4. The Price of Salt - Patricia Highsmith (Carol)
W. W. Norton & Company
Patricia Highsmith, author of successful novels-turned-movies like Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley (we're choosing to ignore the recent The Two Faces of January here), wrote The Price of Salt, which will be released as 'Carol.' The novel itself, controversial for its lesbian content and unprecedented gay happy ending, is said to have inspired Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita. The film stars Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, and Sarah Paulson, with Far From Heaven and I'm Not There director Todd Haynes helming.
5. Dark Places - Gillian Flynn
Shaye Areheart Books
Gone Girl author brings us yet another chilling thriller. A young girl is the sole survivor of a massacre that leaves both of her sisters and her mother dead in an apparent Satanic cult ritual. She testifies against her brother, but 25 years later, she begins to investigate the actual events. Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Nicholas Hoult, and Christina Hendricks star.
6. A Walk in the Woods - Bill Bryson
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants director Ken Kwapis is set to direct Bryson's memoir, starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. The hilarious book describes Bryson's attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail with his friend Stephen Katz. Emma Thompson and Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman will also star.
7. Insurgent - Veronica Roth
As conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows, a war looms for Divergent's post-apocalyptic Chicago. In this sequel, we're still following Shailene Woodley and Theo James' Tris and Four as they try to understand the reasons for Erudite's insurrection and obtain information the Abnegation are trying to protect. Kate Winslet, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, and Miles Teller return in their supporting roles, and are joined by some all-star names: Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Suki Waterhouse.
8. Serena - Ron Rash
The dynamic duo of mega-nominated movies Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are back at it! Bradley Cooper plays a man trying to maintain his timber empire during the Depression, while Jennifer Lawrence plays his wife who discovers she can't have children. For some reason, we're a little terrified of JLaw in this movie from the trailer.
9. Silence - Shusako Endo
Taplinger Publishing Company
This 1966 novel about a Jesuit missionary sent to 17th century Japan where he endures persecution is set to be adapted by Martin Scorsese. It will also have an all star cast of Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Ken Watanabe, and Adam Driver.
10. The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks
The producers of The Fault in Our Stars, the author of The Notebook, and the hottest Hollywood son around, this movie already has us in love with it. Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson play two lovers and there's a rodeo or something; we don't really know, we were just thinking about how much this movie will make us cry. Time to read the book.
11. Far From the Madding Crowd - Thomas Hardy
The Hunt director Thomas Vinterberg tackles Thomas Hardy's novel. Carey Mulligan stars as Bathsheba Everdene, a woman who has too many men in love with her and of course rejects them all until she falls for one. Three men, played by Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone), and Tom Sturridge (On The Road), all after this woman: who will she end up with? We actually just read the plot description and had everything spoiled and somehow still gasped and cried at those three paragraphs. Why didn't we know about this book before?!
12. Paper Towns - John Green
The Fault in Our Stars author John Green's next book to be adapted by the same team who adapted TFIOS (Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber). Margo and her adventures are legendary at her high school, and Quentin ("Q") has always loved her for it. Margo climbs through his window and demands he take an all night road trip of revenge, but when she goes missing the next day, Q realizes she's left clues for him and promptly hits the road again in search of her. Cara Delevingne will play Margo and TFIOS' Nat Wolff will play Q.
13. The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge - Michael Punke
Carroll & Graf Publishers
Academy Award-nominated Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman, 21 Grams, Biutiful) is set to direct Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy in this adaptation. Partially based on the life of fur trapper Hugh Glass. Leo will play Glass, who is mauled by a bear, then later robbed and left for dead by his companions. He survives and sets out for revenge against those same men.
14. The Secret Scripture - Sebastian Barry
Faber and Faber
A one-hundred-year-old woman, Roseanne McNulty, in a mental hospital for about 50 years decides to retrace her history. As the hospital faces demolition and he must choose which of his patients should be transferred and which should rejoin the community, Dr. Grene also tries to discover her history. What they find is very different, though there are some consistencies. Vanessa Redgrave and Rooney Mara will play Roseanne McNulty, Eric Bana will play Grene, with Theo James also starring.
15. Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
An oft-adapted novel, Mary Shelley's classic is to be turned into yet another film, this time directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin, Push). The updated version, titled Victor Frankenstein, will be told from the perspective of the doctor's assistant, Igor. The film will explain how the doctor became the man who created the legendary monster. Daniel Radcliffe will play Igor and James McAvoy will play Victor Frankenstein.
16. The Martian - Andy Weir
Crown Publishing Group
Described as Cast Away meets Apollo 13, the novel follows an astronaut stranded on Mars, fighting to survive (which also sounds mildly like Gravity to us, no?). Ridley Scott is set to direct a pretty stellar (no pun intended) cast here: Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kristen Wiig, Donald Glover, Kate Mara, and Chiwetel Ejiofor. This sounds like a great movie already, but we'll have to wait until November to see it.
17. The Jungle Book - Rudyard Kipling
Walt Disney Pictures is working on this live-action/CGI mash-up of the classic book, directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Chef), with a mind-bogglingly incredible cast. Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Walken, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Breaking Bad's Giancarlo Esposito will provide voices, while newcomer Neel Sethi will play Mowgli.
Olivia Newton-John was stunned to learn that one of the victims of the Sydney hostage crisis last week (ends21Dec14) was a relative of her close friends. On 15 December (14), a lone gunman held 17 people hostage inside a cafe in the Australian city during a 16-hour stand-off with armed police. Two hostages, Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson, died at the scene and four others were injured.
Johnson, the cafe manager, was reportedly shot as he tried to wrestle the weapon from the gunman, prompting the police unit to move in and storm the cafe, ending the siege.
Newton-John posted a message on Facebook.com on Tuesday (23Dec14), the day of the victims' memorial service, to pay tribute to Johnson, who was related to her close friends.
She writes, "It was so shocking to hear of a hostage situation in my heart home Australia and then I was so saddened to hear of the senseless loss of life of 2 innocent people. I was stunned to learn that the hero of this horrific situation, Tori Johnson, was the nephew of our dear friends who told me: 'We just want everyone to know what a beautiful, good, gentle, kind, soft spoken person Tori was - the very antithesis of this act of violence. The loss is immeasurable - But so is the love he left behind'. I send my love and condolences to both families - and pray for love and peace."
The gunman died during the siege.
Punk icon Iggy Pop gave up his dreams of becoming a politician in his native Detroit, Michigan following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Lust For Life hitmaker admits he grew up wanting to make a difference in America but the aftermath of the Kennedy killing in 1963 made him realise he just wasn't the right guy for the job.
In a new interview with BBC news show Newsnight, which aired on Thursday (09Oct14), the rocker explained, "I did want to be a politician until JFK got shot... Not because he was shot, but because... suddenly you had (Richard) Nixon, (Vice President) Hubert Humphrey, LBJ (Lyndon Johnson - Kennedy's successor)...
"A kid can look at these people and think, 'These people are not well!'."
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has emerged as the frontrunner to lead the cast of a new Baywatch movie. The big screen adaptation of the hit 1980s TV series, which featured Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, is on the slate at Paramount and the action man is set to star, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Comedy kings Sean Anders and John Morris have signed on to direct the project.
Johnson has been linked to a Baywatch movie for years.
It's not known if any of the original Baywatch cast will be part of the big screen revamp.

Actor Jamie Foxx partied with politicians on Saturday night (16Aug14) by inviting former presidential candidate John Mccain and New Jersey governor Chris Christie to join him onstage for a dance at a star-studded fundraiser. The Ray star was a guest at the annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash and he made an extra special effort to get the party swinging.
He took to the stage and invited Christie to join him for a dance, before Senator McCain got up to join in, swiftly followed by Sir Paul McCartney and director Spike Lee.
After the stunt, Foxx told New York Post gossip column Page Six, "Its always the ones you don't expect. Republicans love to dance - in the Hamptons."
Other guests at the event, organised by business magnate Ron Perelman, included Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson, Barbra Streisand, Roger Waters, Anjelica Huston, and Don Johnson.
The audience enjoyed performances by Pharrell Williams, Sting, Gladys Knight, and Jon Bon Jovi at the fundraiser, which netted $4 million (£2.4 million) for development projects at New York's famous Apollo Theatre.
At the close of the evening, Nicholson told Page Six, "That was one hell of a night. Christie really held his own. I told him, as he walked back to his seat, 'Governor, you can't let New Jersey down.'"
