  • 'Lil Bub & Friendz': 7 Adorable Pics of Bub and Cute Things — EXCLUSIVE
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 24, 2013
    She came from outer space and decided to start her life in Bloomington, Ind. with owner Mike Bridavsky. Now at the age of two, Lil Bub is now one of the most famous cats to ever walk the earth. She has starred in her own movie, has her own clothing line, is coming out with a book, and even calls celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Robert De Niro her closest friends. But with her millions of internet fans and growing fame, there is something totally special about this four-pound kitten. Bub has as story that makes her oh-so precious.  While the little cat was born the runt of her litter and with a list of birth defects including dwarfism and polydactylism, she has still been able to make an impact on the world. "The joy she brings to people is the most important thing," Bub's owner Bridavsky tells Hollywood.com. "People are very emotionally invested in her because she's different and she represents that being different is okay and that you can overcome your challenges." And Lil Bub proved this idea to be true by the fact her film Lil Bub & Friendz premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this past week. "Just because you're born different, doesn't mean that you can't be the biggest celebrity at the Tribeca Festival," Bridavsky says. A celebrity is exactly what Bub is — and one that people just can't get enough of. To satisfy our craving for Bub's cat cuteness, here are five more pics of Bub posing with adorable objects. Oh, and we couldn't resist throwing one in of Bub sleeping too. She's just too cute! Check out the cute pics of Lil Bub below: Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Late Night Last Night: Steve Martin Tries to Run Away from David Letterman
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 24, 2013
    Anyone who knows anything about Steve Martin, knows that he is a funny guy. Whether you have seen him in Father of the Bride, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, The Jerk, or any of his other movies, or even just read his Twitter, you know that this guy is pretty humorous. He can even make the lamest of jokes entertaining. Tuesday night, Martin stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman, but tried to pull a fast one on the late night host. "I was so excited to be on the show tonight, but it turns out, I am currently in Europe and unable to be here," Martin said before he got up and tried to run off the stage. Unfortunately security caught him and escorted him back to Letterman's hot seat. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • The Cake Boss Dreams Up A Cake to Celebrate Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie — EXCLUSIVE
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 23, 2013
    There's no denying that people are obsessed with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's relationship. Whether they are shopping with their six children or going on another trip to some exotic location, "Brangelina" makes headlines practically every week. For seven years, people have wondered when Hollywood's hottest couple would tie the knot — and then, finally, Pitt and Jolie announced their engagement in April 2012. But nearly a year later — and after many false marriage rumors — Brangelina have yet to officially announce that they have wed. Since we have not yet gotten to enjoy the momentous occasion with the couple, we thought it would be fun to celebrate their pending nuptials anyways. So, Hollywood.com partnered with Carlo's Bakery and Buddy Valastro from the hit TLC reality show Cake Boss to create a special cake to reflect the couple's popularity in pop culture. Placed on the red carpet, Brangelina and their six pack act as the cake topper. Jolie rightfully has her leg stuck out from her dress' slit like she did at the 2012 Oscars — and Shiloh is even trying to copy her daddy's style with a mini black tux. And of course, Pitt is sporting his more rugged, bearded look. Now all that's left is to turn those engagement rings into wedding rings. But at the rate that Brangelina are going, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux may tie the knot first. Now that would be occasion to talk. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Late Night Last Night: Ryan Lochte Is 'Bringing Swimming Awareness' to Your Living Rooms
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 23, 2013
    Ryan Lochte has made it abundantly clear that he isn't the brightest person. He may be a good swimmer — heck, a great swimmer... but that's about it. There isn't much upstairs. But somehow, the gold medal-winning swimmer has scored himself a reality show, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, which airs Sunday nights on E!. On Monday night, Lochte stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to have a chat about his new reality show. Letterman asked how Lochte got the show. "The main reason I got this show is, you know, every four years the most watched sport at the Olympics is swimming," he said. "And then after the Olympics, people tend to just forget about swimming." So Lochte wants swimming to remain a part of people's lives even after the Oympics are finished. "But um, I just wanna bring swimming into everyone's living room," he said. "So, bringing swimming awareness." Oh, and Lochte likes other sports too besides swimming. He likes to play beach volleyball, basketball, and to surf — anything, as long as it means he might get hurt while at it. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Reese Witherspoon Cancels 'Jimmy Fallon' Appearance Following Arrest
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 23, 2013
    It's never easy to cope with the after effects of an embarrassing stunt that you pulled while drunk. Avoiding the topic and keeping to yourself is probably the best thing that you can do to let the heat of the mistake cool down — and that's exactly what it seems like Reese Witherspoon is trying to do now, following her arrest on Friday. Witherspoon has been opting out of appearances following last week's bust. According to E!, Witherspoon — who was arrested for disorderly conduct after she allegedly got into a shouting match with a police officer — canceled her Good Morning America appearance. She was reportedly scheduled to film a segment for Wednesday's episode on Monday, but was a no show. Next, the "sorry" actress reportedly bailed on a Tuesday night appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Witherspoon was supposed to be promoting her new film Mud, but it seems like she is just too embarrassed by Friday's arrest, even after she has offered an apology for going off on the cop. For those of you who don't know what happened, Witherspoon's husband Jim Toth was pulled over for wreckless driving and Witherspoon reportedly hasseled the arresting officer. She reportedly said to him, 'Do you know my name? ... You’re about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news.'"  While Witherspoon did show up to the New York premiere for her film Sunday night, do you think the actress made the right decision to cancel these other appearances? Or should she have bucked up and shown how "deeply embarassed" she truly is? Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Olivia Wilde Wants to Make More Documentaries
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 22, 2013
    You probably know Olivia Wilde as Dr. Remy "Thirteen" Hadley, the bisexual doctor with Huntington's disease who worked for House. Or you recall her from the action movies TRON: Legacy or Cowboys & Aliens. But while Wilde is a talented actress, she also has a passion for getting behind the camera. "I want to make more documentaries," Wilde tells Hollywood.com Tuesday at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere for her short documentary The Rider and The Storm, which she executive produced. "I want to work with these guys [the movie's directors David Darg and Bryn Mooser, both pictured with Wilde above] again." Wilde is drawn to documentaries because of the way these films tell stories. "Documentaries are the most powerful ways to tell stories and to teach people about things that are happening in the world," she says. The Rider and the Storm follows Timmy Brennan, a New York iron worker whose house was completely destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, as he trys to recover his lost possessions in the ruins of his home. "This film is so powerful, [so] it's really important for people to see," Wilde says. "And I want to make more films like that. I'm really lucky to be able to come on as a producer on this film and to work with amazing directors is just wonderful. It's an honor." Brennan's story hit close to home for Wilde, who is a New Yorker and was actually in the city when the deadly storm touched land and devastated communities around New York and New Jersey. "[During] Hurricane Sandy I was in lower Manhattan without power and water," Wilde says. "We were cuddling with our dog to stay warm." Thankfully for Wilde, losing power and water for a while is the worst she experienced of Sandy. "We had it easy compared to the people in Breezy Point, and in the Rockaways, and in Red Hook, and in many other communities," she says. "So I really wanted to help bring the world a story of what actually happened to people when Sandy hit. And these guys made an incredible film." Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Officially Divorce
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 19, 2013
    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West better hop on a plane and fly to Paris because it's time to celebrate. Kardashian is officially a free woman. A judge has dissolved her marriage to Kris Humphries and signed off on the divorce papers. This means that the reality starlet is now free to marry her baby daddy. Despite the legal battle that has ensued for over 18 months, TMZ is reporting that Humphries didn't get any money from Kardashian. (He had reportedly been seeking $7 million). Kardashian may have won, but she reportedly did show some compassion for Humphries during the final hearing. According to TMZ, Kardashian convinced the judge not to slap Humphries with a fine for skipping out on a hearing last week. All and all, this is great news not only for the Kardashians, but for pop culture fanatics. It means we can finally stop hearing about Kim Kardashian's divorce. Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.

  • Late Night Last Night: Gary Busey Auditions to Go to Mars — VIDEO
    By: Lindsey DiMattina Apr 19, 2013
    Gary Busey has always seemed a little strange, but Thursday night, the 68-year-old actor proved that his mind really is in outerspace. How did we figure this out? Well, he created an audition tape to campaign to go on a mission to Mars, and debuted the tape on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. But, according to Busey, this won't be his first time traveling to the red planet. Hopefully, his campaign video wins NASA over and we will see Busey suited up and shot off to outerspace sometime in the near feature. If that does happen, though, he sadly won't be returning to planet Earth. Kimmel revealed that this Mars mission is a one-way ticket.  Follow Lindsey on Twitter @LDiMat.
