Gary Oldman has spoken out to defend Mel Gibson over his anti-Semitic behavior.
The Dark Knight Rises actor has blasted the "political correctness" which has seen the Lethal Weapo actor shunned from the movie world over racist and anti-Jewish slurs he is alleged to have made in recent years: "I just think political correctness is crap. That's what I think about it. I think it's like, take a f***ing joke. Get over it."
Mel is said to have made anti-Jewish slurs while being arrested for drink-driving in Malibu, California in 2006 with police reporting that he told his arresting police officer, "F***ing Jews ... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."
Police have reportedly been called to Justin Bieber's new home twice already.
The "Believe" hitmaker is renting two apartments in a new complex in Beverly Hills - a penthouse and a property directly below - and even though he only moved in earlier this month, he has already ran into problems with his neighbors.
According to reports, the HOA (Home Owners Alliance) have been contacted because of excessive noise and marijuana use, and police were called on two occasions. One resident in the building told TMZ, "The smell of marijuana was permeating the floor, especially my hallway which is shared by [Justin's] unit."
According to the website, the 20-year-old star threw a party last week which went on until 4am and on Monday, he threw a small bash which saw his deck set up with bongs and a bar, and his entire penthouse was "hotboxed," meaning it was sealed off to maximize the possible high from smoking marijuana.
Miley Cyrus has secured a permanent restraining order against an obsessed fan.
Devon Meek - who was arrested near the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker's Los Angeles home on May 16 and previously claimed he would rather die than spend another day without her - must stay 100 yards away from her for the next three years. The new court order also prevents him from going near any of the venues where the blonde beauty is performing, according to gossip website TMZ.com.
Miley's lawyers obtained the permanent protection order in court today after they filed an emergency restraining order last month. Meek, 24, previously claimed that Miley was communicating with him through the radio and believed she told him that she "adores" him.
A law enforcement source said Meek, who also said he hears "screaming voices" in his head, is still undergoing treatment after initially being hospitalized under a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold. "Mr. Meek stated that when he is released from the hospital, he will not stop seeking Ms. Cyrus and that he will continue to go to Ms. Cyrus' residence until Ms. Cyrus accepts him or he dies," the insider also previously said.
Melanie Griffith has reportedly filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas after 18 years of marriage.
The 56-year-old actress has allegedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason behind their split in the legal documents filed by her attorney Laura Wasser.
The Working Girl star is reportedly asking for child support and sole physical and joint legal custody of their 17-year-old daughter Stella, as well as spousal support, according to gossip website TMZ.com. It is believed the split is amicable, but their divorce could turn complicated when it comes to dividing up property as they own a number of homes in the US and Spain.
The Hollywood couple first got together after meeting on the set of the 1995 film Two Much, which led to Antonio's divorce from Ana Leza. The pair got married in a low key ceremony in London, England, in 1996, just one month after Antonio, 53, and Ana's divorce was finalized.
"As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-workers, to the images in a magazine... How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress."
- Divergent star Shailene Woodley explains why she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that "Comparisons always lead to despair" when the SNL alum asked her how she feels being compared to Jennifer Lawrence (to which the audience booed at her response).

Kristen Wiig used to worry that she was too old for Hollywood.
The 40-year-old star - who shot to fame with her hit comedy Bridesmaids in 2011 - was concerned she was too old to make it in the industry after the excitement of moving to Hollywood wore off and she realized other most other aspiring actresses were far younger than her.
"When I first moved there, there was 'the dream,' as there is for a lot of people. Then I got really scared. I moved there and I was like, 'Oh, I don't have any experience,' and I was surrounded by people a lot younger than I am, a lot better looking than I am, who've been acting for a while, who've been taking classes, who already have agents and I just felt like, 'Oh, there's a lot of work I have to do.'"
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty actress first decided to pursue a career in acting during a class at an art college in Arizona, and although she struggled to find work after moving to Los Angeles she admits she came into her own after she joined an improv group, The Groundlings: "I was like, 'Oh my God, I love it,' which was weird because I was terrified of being on stage. But the idea of being someone else and not myself didn't scare me as much."
After nearly two and a half years together, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart have broken up.
Although the split is not too much of a surprise to the public - their relationship had been rumored to be on the rocks lately - sources close to the couple divulged that they had actually gone their separate ways two months ago.
There was also gossip about Casper's wandering eye being the root of their problems, but the insider denies that this is the case: "Casper has been a single guy and can text or see whoever he wants, but the idea that he was knowingly texting a transsexual is laughable... He's not that guy, but like a lot of single guys online he obviously likes to look at a 'lil T and A."
TMZ also reports that Casper is in the process of moving out while Jennifer is busy promoting her latest album.
There is no word (yet!) as to the actual cause of the pair's break-up.

Lana Del Rey thinks that feminism "isn't interesting."
The "West Coast" singer, who is set to release her new album Ultraviolence this month, insists that she doesn't find feminism "an interesting concept," and admits she is often bored when people talk to her about it.
"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept... Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, God. I'm just not really that interested. I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities," she said.
However, the star went on to explain that her idea of a true feminist is a woman who "feels free enough to do whatever she wants."
Meanwhile, the star, who debuted the title track from her new album yesterday on YouTube, also spoke about video footage taken by a fan of her crying on stage last year during a gig in Dublin, Ireland. "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes," she explained.
Rosamund Pike is pregnant.
The 35-year-old actress is expecting her second child with her partner Robie Uniacke, whom she has been dating since 2009, her representative has confirmed to E! News. It is not yet known when their new bundle of joy is due.
The couple already have two-year-old son Solo together, but kept the pregnancy underwraps until the star was seven months along and could no longer hide her bump.
Rosamund - whose engagement to director Joe Wright was called off a month before their wedding in 2008 - has always said she would like to become a mother and had planned to have more than one child. "As an only child, you've never known anything else. But I definitely know that I would like my child to have brothers or sisters. But I haven't got a child yet, not yet obviously," she said of Solo's birth.
Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to a children's hospital in Philadelphia.
The 24-year-old singer has given the large sum of money to The Children's Hospital in Pennsylvania to help fund a music program for youngsters suffering from cancer. The specialized scheme promises to lift the spirits of young sick patients by allowing them to create and produce their own music during their treatment.
"Taylor Swift's gift will help lift the spirits of many patients during a difficult time. Taylor Swift's music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients," said the CEO of the medical center, Steven M. Altschuler.
Lamia Barakat, director of the Psychosocial Services Program at the cancer center, added, "We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer."
