  • 'Today' Show Host Savannah Guthrie Gets Engaged but Receives Roses from Bradley Cooper, Not Her Fiance
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
      It's been an exciting few days for Savannah Guthrie. First, she got engaged over the weekend to her boyfriend of four years, Michael Feldman, and announced the news on the Today show Monday morning. But immediately following said announcement, Guthrie got another, rather unexpected present from another man! Bradley Cooper showed up in the middle of all Guthrie's engagement talk to give the NBC co-host a bouquet of red roses. Of course Guthrie couldn't help but blush, especially because Cooper asked her for her phone number. But despite Cooper's attempts to woo her, Guthrie seemed quite happy about her upcoming nuptials to Feldman, 44, who is in charge of a communications firm in New York and Washington D.C. "We adore each other," she said. "Our families have been in-laws for years... they were just waiting for us to catch up." Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Get a Taste of Michael B. Jordan's Star Turn in 'Fruitvale Station' Trailer
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
    Film festival hype can either make or break a movie. Some never live up to it and some ride it all the way to Oscar night. Finally we're getting to see if the Sundance Film Festival hype surrounding Fruitvale Station  and lead actor Michael B. Jordan's star turn as Oscar, is worth it.  Based on a true story, Fruitvale follows the story of a 22-year-old man as he decides to alter his entire life. He wants to be a better father, son, and lover — but then a devastating train ride ultimately destroys his chances. We fell in love with Jordan in The Wire, Friday Night Lights, and Chronicle and in Fruitvale, he puts his talents to the test again as another troubled young man looking to become someone new. The movie hits theaters July 16.  Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • 5 Reasons James Franco Dating 'Game of Thrones' Star Emilia Clarke Is a Terrible Idea
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
    While some people believe that opposites attract, that doesn't always mean they should date. Such can be said about James Franco and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke. According to the New York Post's Page Six, the two went on date over the weekend. Based on what we know about both actors, this rumored romance better not go much further than that. These two just aren't meant to be, and we've got five good reasons for our plea: 1. Clarke likes funny guys. Clarke reportedly dated comedic actor Seth MacFarlane in 2012. While Franco had to memorize a few jokes for his gig as Oscars host and was admittedly very funny in Spring Breakers, he tends to be seen in more dramatic movies like 127 Hours and Oz the Great and Powerful. I mean, did you see Franco host SNL? Not exactly side-splitting stuff.  2. Franco is an Aries; Clarke is a Taurus. Those born under Aries want instant gratification. Taurus individuals are more patient. Clarke wouldn't move fast enough for Franco, and Clarke would probably be aggravated by Franco's demanding ways. 3. Franco is a movie star; Clarke is a TV actress. Confined to the small screen, Clarke could easily become jealous of Franco with all his shiny, big screen moments. And there's no guarantee Franco would like Clarke's green-eyed, scaly, possibly fire-breathing monster.  4. Franco is an American; Clarke is English. Ever heard of the American Revolution? Despite what Brits say, there's a chance they still hold it against us for breaking away from their empire. Right?  5. Franco doesn't have time to date. Franco is ridiculously busy. He's an actor, director, writer, poet, philanthropist, and student (among other, yet-to-be-announced things). He doesn't have time for a girlfriend, plain and simple. (After all, look at all his S*******T.) Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Kiefer Sutherland Returning as Jack Bauer for Fox's '24' Limited Series Run
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
    24 fans get ready: Jack Bauer is back on the clock. That's right, leading man Kiefer Sutherland will be returning as agent Jack Bauer in a new limited series run of 24 on Fox. Fox announced on Monday that the network has ordered a "new tent-pole event series" — 24: Live Another Day — which will "restart the clock" of the drama series. Sutherland will be reunited with showrunner Howard Gordon, and they will be maintaining the original format of split screens and interweaving story lines. There will be a total of 12 episodes "representing 24 hours." The event series will capture Bauer's storyline a few years after where the series finale left off. "The response to 24 is unlike anything I have ever experienced as an actor before," Sutherland said. "To have the chance to reunite with the character, Jack Bauer, is like finding a lost friend. The story ideas from Howard Gordon are exciting and fresh, and will not disappoint... Make no mistake, my goal is to knock your socks off. See you soon." 24's limited run will reportedly begin airing in May 2014.  Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
    Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep have a new co-star in the Disney adaption of Stephen Sondheim's musical, Into the Woods.

    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 13, 2013
    We won't be seeing Barbara Walters on TV much longer. ABC revealed late Sunday night that Walters will be retiring from TV journalism, stating that she will be making the official announcement on The View Monday morning.

  • Charles Ramsey Is a Hero: 10 Funniest Pop Culture Tweets of the Week
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 10, 2013
    Besides the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala on Monday night and The Great Gatsby heading to theaters Friday, this week in pop culture has been a lot less about Hollywood and more about current events like the sad story of Jodi Arias, who was found guilty of first degree murder in the killing of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander. Nancy Grace has been tirelessly covering Arias' trial and almost broke down into tears when she broadcast the guilty verdict. In much happier news, Charles Ramsey became an American hero when he rescued three women and a child who had been held captive in Cleveland.

  • Amanda Bynes Gets 3 Years Probation for Plea Deal
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 10, 2013
    It looks like Amanda Bynes won't be posting a "selfie" of an orange jumpsuit just yet. The 27-year-old actress — who has been adoring her Twitter account with coutless pictures of herself in the bathroom or at the gym — has gotten a "get out of jail free" card. Bynes pled no contest to charges of driving on a suspended license, TMZ reports. In response, the court has given Bynes three years probation. Bynes' probation sentence means that she has to obey all laws. She was also told that she can't drive without a valid license and insurance. In addition to this, Bynes must also pay a $300 fine. (Not bad for someone who claims to be as rich as the Olsen twins.) Bynes was first charged with driving on a suspended license back in September when she was pulled over in Burbank, Calif. At the time, Bynes' license had been suspended due to two pending hit-and-run charges. Those hit-and-run charges have since been thrown out because Bynes reached a financial settlement with the victims involved in both incidents. Unfortunately, this ruling doesn't mean that Bynes' legal troubles are totally over. She is still battling a DUI case. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Good Grief! Charlie Brown Voice Actor Peter Robbins Sentenced to Rehab
    By: Lindsey DiMattina May 09, 2013
    Charlie Brown has been placed in time out. Peter Robbins, the actor who voiced Charlie Brown in the Peanuts films like It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! and A Charlie Brown Christmas, has been sentenced to go to rehab for stalking his ex-girlfriend, the San Diego County District Attorney tells Hollywood.com. "The defendant, Mr. Robbins, was sentenced yesterday to five years probation and 365 days in custody by Superior Court Judge Dwayne Moring," the DA says. But because "Mr. Robbins has already served 110 days in custody and has ‘good time’ credits for 110 for a total of 220 days credit, the court ordered that the balance of the 365 days is stayed pending successful completion of a residential rehabilitation program." Put simply, he has to spend the remainder of his sentence in rehab. Robbins — who plead guilty last month to threatening and stalking his ex-girlfriend and her plastic surgeon — has to spend at least eight months at a residential treatment center, the court mandated. He also was ordered to pay $15,081.90 "in restitution to the victim he stalked" and he's ordered to away from her for 10 years.  This story makes us feel more down than Charlie Brown in this classic clip: Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat More:Charlie Brown Actor Pleads Not GuiltyCharlie Brown Actor ArrestedKate Moss: Naked and Beautiful  From Our Partners:What Happened to 33 Child Stars (Celebuzz)40 Most Revealing See-Through Red Carpet Looks (Vh1)
