Actress/singer Rumer Willis has reportedly split from boyfriend Jayson Blair. The eldest daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis has called it quits with her beau after a year of dating, sources confirm to Us Weekly.
The 25 year old first met The Hard Times of RJ Berger actor through mutual friends, and they have been linked since July last year (12).
It was a big night for Jennifer Lawrence at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night. Not only did the Oscar-winning actress have the task of presenting President Bill Clinton, the recipient of the Advocate for Change Award at last night's ceremony, but she sent the Internet into a frenzy (what else is new?) when she debuted her new, short haircut.
Celebrity hairdresser Mark Townsend shared a shot of Lawrence's gorgeous new look on Instagram with the message "Meanwhile, this is happening" before she hit the red carpet for the event wearing a stunning little black dress by David Koma. The photo got overwhelmingly positive reception from fans online, who wrote messages in response like, "Crazy gorgeous" and "perfect".
Of course even if Lawrence may look a little different, she still remains her same old charming self we've all come to know and love. According to E! Online, the 22-year-old Catching Fire star had one of her trademark slip-ups on stage. Lawrence, while introducing President Clinton's award with Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein before Chelsea Clinton introduced her father, the actress reportedly "mildly flubbed" the former President's name.
But President Clinton took the small slip-up in stride and joked, "I don't know why Harvey made Jennifer do that. She really was like 2-years-old when I became president. I met her backstage and she looked like she was touring the Museum of Natural History."
Below are more of the winners, including President Clinton, from the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards:

From the looks of Ryan Murphy's Twitter account, things will get super dramatic on Glee's fourth season. Murphy just posted a photo of Darren Criss roaming the McKinley High halls dressed as the Boy Wonder. Clad in Robin's signature red, yellow, and green, Criss proves that real men wear tights.
Murphy tweeted, "Who is that masked man keeping crime away from the halls of McKinley?" with the below photo. Murphy doesn't provide any context for the photo, but it's probably safe to say this is for the Halloween episode. Unless, of course, there's a super hero episode. Which would be awesome.
The picture of a costumed Criss is the most recent in a string of revealing photos and videos Murphy has released to his fans via his Twitter account. Since Murphy joined the 21st Century and created a Twitter account on July 30, we've been treated to behind-the-scenes looks at Glee, American Horror Story, and The New Normal that more than whet the appetites of the shows' fans.
We've gotten to see Kate Hudson in full Glee regalia (Holy fishnet stockings, Batman!), Adam Levine with AHS Season 2 star Bloody Face, and The New Normal's Jayson Blair in his underwear. But the photos are just the tip of the iceberg; Murphy continuously posts casting hints, never-before-seen videos, and answers to fan questions. Basically, what we're trying to say is that Ryan Murphy is, hands down, the best showrunner to follow on Twitter.
If there was a little golden statuette to hand out for Best Sneak Peek Tweeter, we would gladly hand it over to Murphy (he could keep it in his trophy case or wherehaveyou right next to his Emmys). But all kidding aside, Murphy has done an amazing job generating buzz about his shows. The direct contact Murphy has with his fans only helps to fuel the fervor surrounding these already-hotly-anticipated — and highly secretive — shows. With Murphy at the helm, who needs a publicist?

American Horror Story' Teaser Is Just As Weird As You Thought It Would Be — VIDEO
The 23 year old, who has appeared in such TV shows as 90210 and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, enjoyed a date with The Hard Times of RJ Berger actor at Hollywood hotspot Bagatelle LA last week (03Jul12).
A source tells the New York Post, "She sipped on bourbon, while Jason draped his arm around her the whole evening. The two were holding hands, flirting and canoodling."
The couple later continued its evening at nearby Sayers Club, where Willis performed a few songs.
The actress has been previously linked to High School Musical hunk Zac Efron as well as Glee stars Mark Salling and Chord Overstreet.
In the wake of the recent scandal at the New York Times in which journalist Jayson Blair contrived sources and quotes Shattered Glass offers a potent exploration of another journalist's motivations for doing similar in the magazine world in the 1990s. As the youngest staff member of the political magazine The New Republic Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen) is bylined month after month and his writing has such verve such power such wit and humor that he's getting calls to freelance for all the best publications. He's also a really nice guy complimenting the secretary's lipstick and helping new writers find their footing. Nice as he is though Glass is also a little childish: He tends to pout; he's always asking fact checkers and editors to help him out with his stories; and he's going to law school because his parents "made him." Because he's such a nice sweet innocent kid nobody suspects the somewhat outrageous stories he files are anything but true--until two writers at Forbes Digital pull the thread that causes Glass' carefully stitched web of lies to unravel.
As Glass Christensen (Attack of the Clones) is for once well cast. His cute pout is perfect for such lines as "Are you mad at me?" and "I'm sorry " which are his character's stock in trade. Of course the story is not entirely about Glass; his relationships with his two editors are key to the film's exploration of journalistic ethics. First there's Michael Kelly (solidly played by Hank Azaria) an editor so supportive of his staff he ends up getting fired for it. When Chuck Lane (Peter Sarsgaard) is promoted as his replacement the trouble begins for Glass and the office politics between Lane and his misguided star writer drive the story forward as much as the gradual uncovering of Glass' misdeeds. It's this relationship that brings out Christensen's intriguing dark side while Sarsgaard is wonderfully restrained in his role subtly presenting a character clearly torn between his journalistic integrity and his desire to have his staff (which includes Chloe Sevigny and Melanie Lynskey) see him as an editor who will back them up. It's also a treat to see a surprisingly smart Steve Zahn as Forbes Digital reporter Adam Penenberg and the continuously underestimated Rosario Dawson in a small role as his right-hand woman Andie Fox.
Some clever storytelling goes into the production of Shattered Glass--perhaps a little too clever at times. At staff meetings for example Stephen pitches stories about events he supposedly attended and we see them happen on screen as he describes them; we just never know if they're real or fiction (recall the schizophrenic fantasies of A Beautiful Mind). The framework that begins ends and punctuates the film at various times features Stephen giving a talk to his high school journalism teacher's class with a twist that's believable but maybe a little too expected by the time the movie ends. But even though we've seen these tricks before they serve the story well enough and overall the film's exploration of integrity and truth is appropriately intelligent but not too high-handed. Director/writer Billy Ray seems to recognize that if a peach-fuzz faced boy was able to hoodwink an entire editorial staff and many of the nation's top politicos many of them readers of The New Republic none of us should really trust any "true" story--even this movie.
Top Story: NBC Pulls Coupling From November Sweeps
Unfortunately for NBC, TV viewers aren't tuning in to the US version of BBC sitcom Coupling, a show the network had touted as a possible successor to Friends, now in its ninth and final season. NBC has benched Coupling twice in October, including tonight. The network will instead air a repeat of Tuesday's Whoopi episode, which featured a face-to-face encounter between Whoopi Goldberg's character and President Bush (played by impersonator Steve Bridges). Coupling will again be pulled Oct. 30 to make room for three super-sized editions of Friends, Scrubs and Will & Grace on the opening night of the November sweeps. According to Reuters, the interrupted run of the Coupling has raised questions from media analysts about whether NBC is considering moving the show to a different time slot or pulling the plug altogether. NBC, however, said it has made no decisions about the future of Coupling and has yet to set its November schedule.

Showtime Tackles Jayson Blair TV Biopic
The Showtime network is planning a television film about disgraced former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair, who built and ultimately destroyed his career by fabricating stories. According to Reuters, the dark comedy, tentatively titled The Jayson Blair Project, is being eyed for a premiere sometime in 2004, with Jon Maas on board to pen the script, but no casting decisions have been made. The project will be based on articles by former Newsweek reporter Seth Mnookin, who recently left the magazine to write a book about The Times for Random House.
Revolution Pacts With Harry Knowles
Revolution Studios is negotiating a deal with online critic Harry Knowles, better known for his movie gossip Web site Ain't It Cool News, to come on board as the producer of Ghost Town, an original comedy he pitched. According to Variety, the project is the first step on what is expected be a multiple-film arrangement with the studio. The arrangement is considered unusual because Knowles writes about the industry on his site, which flaunts every piece of gossip he can dig up about upcoming movies. But Knowles tells Variety he expects a backlash from his readers: "They're going to hate it," he said. "When anything good happens to me, there is a collective outburst of unfettered jealousy and anger."
Caterpillar Has Beef With George of the Jungle
Bulldozer maker Caterpillar Inc. claims in a lawsuit filed late Tuesday in Federal Court in Peoria, Illinois, that Walt Disney Co.'s straight-to-DVD movie George of the Jungle 2 infringes on its trademarks. Peoria-based Caterpillar alleges the film, about the unlucky jungle man battling "bulldozing bullies," puts them in a bad light. Disney told Reuters they respected Caterpillar but added that the suit was groundless. "We expect the audience will view these sequences for their comedic value and not take them seriously," a spokesman said. The home video is set for released Oct. 21.
