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."
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."
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.
Benedict Cumberbatch once "joke-punched" a journalist for bad-mouthing Keira Knightley.
The Atonement star defended his stunning co-star by lashing out after a member of the press reportedly said something rude about her at an event.
"When I saw him [Benedict] again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did.' Everybody needs a friend like that," Keira recalled.
Despite her budding friendship with Benedict, 37, one thing the pals won't be doing together is karaoke as the 29-year-old actress hates singing in front of people. "I hate karaoke. Like, I really, really hate it. I have to be so drunk I'm nearly about to fall down before I sing in front of anybody. It just terrifies me. But, also, among the people you go with, there will be somebody who secretly has an amazing voice, and you're just like, 'F*ck off,'" she explained.
Jonah Hill admits he was "disgusting" to use a homophobic slur.
The 22 Jump Street actor was caught on camera lashing out at a photographer over the weekend but has now apologized for his actions.
In the footage, published on website TMZ earlier today, the actor ignored photographers as he walked through Los Angeles and initially didn't respond when one paparazzo said, "I like the shorts though, bro. They are pretty sexy." Shortly afterwards, he could be heard saying, "Suck my d**k, you f****t."
The 30-year-old star appeared on Howard Stern's radio show soon after the footage was made public to explain his actions. "This is a heartbreaking situation for me... I'm upset... From the day I was born, and publicly, I've been a gay rights activist... This person had been following me around all day saying hurtful things. I played into exactly what he wanted and I said a disgusting word... It's bulls**t and I shouldn't have said that. I'm happy to take the heat for using this disgusting word," he said.
Armie Hammer is to become a father for the first time.
The Lone Ranger actor and his wife Elizabeth Chambers will welcome their first child into the world later this year, his representative confirmed to People magazine.
The 27-year-old hunk married the TV presenter four years ago, and admitted shortly after they tied the knot he had never expected to settle down: "I was always the guy who thought I'd never get married because [I thought], 'There's never going to be one woman worth giving up all the others.' But she knocked me off my feet."
Armie has previously praised Elizabeth as his "best friend" and spoke of how he loves being affectionate towards her when they are out together. "I like the idea of marriage. I like the idea that I have a best friend. It's comforting. I have no qualms about kissing her in public. I know some guys are like, 'Stop, there's people around.' There's such a big part of our culture, the male psyche -- you don't cry, you don't show weakness. I mean, guys are just as emotionally complicated as women. We just play dumb better," he said.
Lindsay Lohan has started house hunting in London.
The Mean Girls star, who recently documented her struggle to get her life and career back on track on her self-titled OWN series after her six stints in rehab, reportedly wants a fresh start in the UK and thinks it will be good for her career.
"Lindsay's really enjoying being in the UK and has told her pals that she's staying here for good," a source said. "Lindsay has also started investigating getting acting work in London."
Lindsay has been spotted hanging out with many of celebrity pals since arriving in London last month, including Chloe Green and Rita Ora. But news that the 27-year-old actress is thinking about renting a permanent base in the city comes as a surprise as she only moved back to her native New York City from Los Angeles earlier this year.
Ginnifer Goodwin has given birth to a baby boy.
The Once Upon A Time actress and her co-star husband Josh Dallas - whom she met on the set of ABC hit show - welcomed their first child together on Thursday.
A representative for the pair told People magazine on Friday night, "Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas welcomed a baby boy yesterday, May 29. This is their first child. Both mom and baby are doing great."
News that Ginnifer, 35, was expecting first broke in November last year shortly after the pair announced their engagement. "We are so thrilled... and can't wait to celebrate with our friends and family including our second family at Once Upon a Time," Josh, 32, said at the time.
