Actor Mark Wahlberg has teamed up with Indian Motorcycle bosses to create a limited edition unisex clothing line. The Ted star and avid motorcycle rider has joined forces with the Massachusetts-based bike manufacturer to design T-shirts for both men and women.
Wahlberg first met with company bosses at the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota last year (14), and when they asked the Boston native to be their brand ambassador, he jumped at the chance.
He tells Women's Wear Daily, "It was an excuse for me to be able to ride again and for my wife to say OK. It's great because my sons like to ride little 50s (dirt bikes), and we live in a gated community so we ride around the neighborhood. If I am given the OK, I love riding around in the Canyons."
And Wahlberg reveals he has had plenty of input on the designs of the clothes, a very different experience than when he shot to fame as an underwear model for Calvin Klein.
He says, "We got to go in there and make sure that it represented us both and that it made everybody happy. When I did the Calvin Klein thing, I was basically just a model-for-hire. They weren't really interested in my input."
Australian actress Tessa James dressed up as Wonder Woman to mark her final session of chemotherapy treatment this week (beg23Feb15). The former Home and Away star was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and gave up her acting career in America last year (14) so she could move back to her native Australia to undergo treatment.
The 23 year old has now undergone her final round of chemotherapy, and she was joined at the session by family and friends all sporting fancy dress.
Pictures posted on Instagram.com show James dressed as superhero Wonder Woman, while her husband Nate Myles donned a costume in the style of children's literary character Where's Wally.
James wrote in a caption, "'Often fear is the same emotion as excitement, it means you are breaking new ground' #newbeginnings. #2015," while Myles added, "Tough times create Tough People!! ️Well done little lady..."
Whiplash star J.K. Simmons has kicked off the celebrations at the 87th Oscars by walking away with the first prize of the night for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.
The 60-year-old first-time nominee was the favourite heading into Sunday's (22Feb15) ceremony after adding an Independent Spirit Award to his Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA accolades on Saturday (21Feb15), and he continued his awards season victory parade by beating fellow contenders Robert Duvall (The Judge), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Edward Norton (Birdman) and Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher) to claim the top Oscar.
Stepping up to the podium, Simmons gave thanks to his "wonderful" wife Michelle Schumacher, and then urged people everywhere to call their parents and tell them they loved them. He said, "Call your mum, call your dad. If you're lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet, call them. Don't text, don't email, call them on the phone, tell them you love them and thank them and listen to them as long as they want to talk to you. Thank you. Thank you mum and dad."
Ceremony host Neil Patrick Harris opened the 2015 prizegiving at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre by poking fun at the lack of diversity among this year's Oscars nominations, quipping, "Welcome to the 87th Oscars. Tonight we honor Hollywood's best and whitest, sorry brightest...!" He then launched into a song and dance number with Anna Kendrick, dressed as Cinderella, and actor/rocker Jack Black as an outspoken, disgruntled audience member, who leaped up onstage and belted out his complaints in a little melody, before he was kicked off stage.
Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel lead the 2015 nominees with nine nods apiece, followed by The Imitation Game with eight.
Actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar is a dad again after his wife Catriona gave birth to the star's fourth kid on Tuesday night (17Feb15). Little Lachlyn is the couple's second child together. Gosselaar also has two children, eight-year-old Ava Lorenn and Michael Charles, 10, from his first marriage to Lisa Ann Russell.
Announcing the news of his new arrival on Twitter.com, the actor writes, "So in love with our new baby girl, Lachlyn! Mum and baby are healthy and happy. 2 boys, 2 girls, too perfect!"
The couple's first child, Dekker, is 16 months old.
The Saved By the Bell star wed his second wife in 2012, a year after divorcing Russell.
A birthday poem late country legend Johnny Cash wrote to his wife June has topped a British poll of romantic correspondence. To mark the singer/songwriter's 65th birthday in 1994, the Folsom Prison Blues hitmaker put pen to paper and poured out his feelings for his wife.
He wrote, "You still fascinate and inspire me. You influence me for the better. You're the object of my desire, the #1 Earthly reason for my existence.
"We got old and got used to each other. We think alike. We read each others (sic) minds. We know what the other wants without asking. Sometimes we irritate each other a little bit. Maybe sometimes we take each other for granted. But once in a while, like today, I meditate on it and realize how lucky I am to share my life with the greatest woman I ever met."
His love note beat out letters from British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, poet John Keats, Jimi Hendrix and Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
The poll was commissioned by bosses at British life insurance company Beagle Street to mark Valentine's Day on Saturday (14Feb15).
Bridget Jones once said, "I suddenly realised that unless something changed soon I was going to live a life where my major relationship was with a bottle of wine... and I'd finally die, fat and alone, and be found three weeks later half-eaten by alsatians. Or I was about to turn into Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction." As someone perpetually spending date night with nothing but a bottle of wine, this quote hits close to home. Instead of running from it this Valentine's Day, I've decided to embrace it. Here's how you can, too:
1. Buy a bottle of wine.*
*Quantity varies depending on the individual; some may need more than just one. We are not here to judge.
2. Figure out which Valentine's Day movie is right for you.
(500) Days of Summer
For those looking for a bit of whimsy with their despair.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
For those wanting to completely erase a recent and painful relationship from their minds.
The Way We Were
For those at peace with their failed relationship, but who still like to think back on how things used to be.
For those looking for proof that relationships don't work.
Lost in Translation
For those looking for to bask in the emptiness that only Sofia Coppola could bring.
For those looking for a bit of a screwed-up story filled with deceit and raunchiness.
For those planning to cook lobster for one, or who want a laugh instead of a wallowing, revenge-filled night.
For those looking for an action-packed instead of a pity-partied night of revenge. Or for those who want to feel a little better about their own baby daddy issues.
For those looking for proof that all relationships not only don't work, but are also secretly dysfunctional, psychotic messes.
For those who just no longer give a hoot. If you need to watch this movie on Valentine's Day, we won't judge you. Get all the crazy out of your system before it's too late.
3. Enjoy. And remember, Valentine's Day is a bull shit holiday anyway. And you're fabulous, just as you are.
Kevin Costner is praying Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown recovers from her near-drowning incident, because he "can't imagine" how her family is coping as it prepares to mark the third anniversary of his The Bodyguard co-star's death. The 21 year old was hospitalised in Georgia on Saturday (31Jan15) after her husband, Nick Gordon, found her face down and unresponsive in a bathtub at the couple's Roswell home.
Reports suggest she was placed in a medically-induced coma and on Monday (02Feb15), the Houston family revealed Bobbi Kristina was "fighting for her life".
Costner reveals he was heartbroken to hear the news of Brown's medical emergency, especially as the circumstances are eerily similar to those surrounding her superstar mother's passing, which occurred on 11 February, 2012.
He tells People.com, "I was sad (to hear the news), obviously. That family's under a lot of stress right now, just an enormous amount of stress... I can't imagine (how they are coping)."
Costner, a father of seven, admits he hasn't spoken to Brown in "a little while", but he is hoping everything works out for the youngster, adding, "I really hope she's OK."
The actor famously delivered a moving tribute to his late pal Houston at her funeral in 2012.
Brown is Houston's only child with ex-husband and R&B singer Bobby Brown.
Night At The Museum director Shawn Levy has signed up to develop a new movie based on characters from the popular Mr. Men and Little Miss books. Fox Animation studio bosses, the same people behind the Ice Age and Rio films, have picked up the picture rights for the kids' franchise and are now working with Levy to produce a movie.
Executives have yet to appoint a screenwriter or director for the project, which will mark the first animated adaptation of the books since it was turned into a BBC cartoon series in the mid-1970s, narrated by Dad's Army actor Arthur Lowe.
The 85 Mr. Men and Little Miss characters were created and illustrated by British author Roger Hargreaves, and more than 120 million copies have since been sold around the world, with the stories being translated into 15 different languages.
Hargreaves died from a stroke in 1988, aged 53.
Kanye West reunited with his old label boss Damon Dash on Saturday (24Jan15) as the music executive presented the Stronger hitmaker with a top prize at the BET Honors. The rapper was feted with the Visionary Award at the Washington, D.C. ceremony, where stars including his longtime pal and collaborator Jay Z, Common, Kendrick Lamar and his wife Kim Kardashian paid tribute to West in a video montage.
He was then introduced to the stage by his old friend Dash, who confessed he had doubted West's rapping abilities when he was first trying to make the transition from producer to artist.
Stepping up to the podium, a flattered West stated, "I understand what it is to be humbled for the first time."
He then shared a few words of advice to youths seeking to make their mark on the entertainment and arts industry, saying, "You can't be the kid in the back of the classroom with black nail polish. You have to smack the s**t out of people with your creativity."
It was also an emotional night for R&B superstar Usher, who fought back tears as he received the Musical Arts Award from his childhood idol, Bobby Brown, while actress Phylicia Rashad was celebrated with the Theatrical Arts Award.
West has had little to do with Dash since the label co-founder fell out with his business partner Jay Z in 2005 after the sale of their record company to Island Def Jam.
Being a superhero would be awesome. But being a superhero that is a part of the greatest superhero team ever (boo Justice League) that's about as awesome as life can get. We might all just be boring humans, but have you ever just wondered what it would be like to have superpowers? Us too. Next time there is an Avengers initiative, sign us up!
1. The Avengers aren't some cookie cutter superhero team that always gets along. Their arguments are what make them so awesome:
They fight. They disagree. They get angry. There is not as much pressure to fit in if everyone is this normal/weird.
2. They play fight with each other:
Who doesn't want to poke the Hulk to see if he gets mad or not?
3. They don't just blindly follow orders:
They might do some really illegal digging, but it's for the right reasons.
4. You've heard that Iron Man is a pretty funny guy:
5. And that Captain America is hilariously behind on the times:
We kind of want to be an Avenger just so we can join Tony Stark in constantly mocking the Cap.
6. Thor is someone you think would have your back in a fight:
7. As dangerous as it might be, you're really interested in seeing Bruce Banner Hulk Out" up close:
8. These villains don't seem so bad:
9. Okay, maybe they're a little scary, but you could take them:
If you were there, Thor would be A-okay.
10. You really think you could nail that "unnecessary group pose before going into battle" thing:
We're 100% sure this is counterproductive to the mission, but it looks so badass.
11. Looking badass is actually 95% of the reason you're looking to join:
12. How awesome would it be if the Black Widow could teach you this move:
13. And this one:
14. If you get mad at each other, you can totally express it:
15. They're a group of people who love to celebrate and party:
How sweet, they remembered your birthday!
16. You've perfected your throw:
You would fit in so well.
17. He may have his secrets, but you need to experience Nick Fury's sass in person:

Who wants some Korean beef tacos after we take down Ultron?!
