Taylor Swift has been named the most charitable celebrity for the second year in a row.
The "I Knew You Were Trouble" hitmaker topped DoSomething.org's annual list thanks to good deeds including a $100,000 donation to the Nashville Symphony and headlining the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's fundraising event for homeless charity Centrepoint.
In second place were One Direction, whose Comic Relief single 'One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)' raised over $1.6 million to help those living in poverty, and bringing in $784,345 in donations for cancer research.
Headlining the Chime for Change concert in London saw Beyonce awarded third place on the list, while fourth place went to late actor Paul Walker, thanks to his Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) charity, a network of professionals with first responder skills - doctors, nurses, firefighters, paramedics, and other disaster-survival specialists - who help out when natural disasters strike, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis took fifth place thanks to award-winning track "Same Love," which "challenged the hip-hop community to adopt a culture of acceptance."
Sandra Bullock isn't "missing anything" by being single.
The Gravity star hasn't been seen publicly with a new paramour since her split from ex-husband Jesse James in 2010 but insists she is content being a doting mother to her three-year-old son, Louis.
"If [a relationship] should come along, great. But I feel like I'm not missing anything yet. Maybe one day I will. But my son is three years old, which is an amazing age. Four is an even better age. So if something happens, great, but if not, I've got plenty to do," she said.
The 49-year-old actress' life has been full of joy since she adopted Louis in 2010, but she admits she has a rather bittersweet view of the world based on her past life experiences. "Life is a series of disastrous moments. In between those moments, that's when you savour, savour, savour," she told the new issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.
Sandra Bullock is suing a watch company.
The 47-year-old actress has filed a lawsuit in Santa Monica, California, against ToyWatch USA for using her name to promote a diamond-encrusted white-band watch - and she alleges it is being advertised as the same gadget she wore in her Oscar-winning role in 2009 movie The Blind Side.
Sandra also claims her publicity rights have been infringed as a result, and she's asking a California judge for financial compensation, as well as an injunction, according to The Hollywood Reporter. According to the lawsuit, which has been obtained by the website, Sandra "will not voluntarily appear in print or other media for a company or product unless she carefully selects and believes in the company and product, and unless the compensation she receives is commensurate with the value of the exploitation of her name, image, identity, and persona."
The brunette beauty also says her name has a substantial commercial value, and details her credits in the documents. But she is not said to be asserting any claims on false advertising under the Lanham Act or trademark infringement, as some stars have done in similar cases in the past.
The 83rd Academy Awards were held next to Grauman’s famous Chinese theater, in the heart of Hollywood. Where better to honor the elite Oscar crowd? Everyone donned the most expensive of frocks and jewelry for the event, strutting their stuff in the world's most well-known labels. But, not everyone managed to put together an award-winning look. Who failed so utterly, they managed to snag the Worst Dressed title? And which star shined so superbly, they stood out as Best Dressed? We've done the long red carpet walk to bring you the answers...
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she was propositioned for sex in return for a part when she started her acting career.
The Oscar-winning star was left stunned when an unnamed guy suggested they should conclude their meeting in “the bedroom”—an offer she refused.
“When I was just starting out, someone suggested that we finish a meeting in the bedroom, I left. I was pretty shocked. I could see how someone who didn’t know better might worry, ‘My career will be ruined if I don’t give this guy a b**w j*b!’”
Just as it is hard for actresses starting out in Hollywood, Gwyneth insists it is also tough for female stars approaching their 40s. The 38-year-old blonde is stunned by the lack of variety in the roles she is offered, and often feels “dejected.” Speaking in the annual Women in Hollywood issue of Elle magazine, Gwyneth said, “There are a lot of roles that are OK, but there’s little that’s really good, especially for someone my age. Sometimes you find out that something you really liked is going to someone 10 years younger. I find it heartening that Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock have been able to find and create amazing projects.”
According to rumors, Sandra Bullock is demanding to be pulled from the public service announcement in the video above. Bullock and several other celebs, including Blake Lively, shot the announcement for the Be the One campaign. As the story goes, Bullock discovered that the company behind the campaign is linked to big oil, including BP itself.
Bullock’s rep released this statement: “Ms. Bullock was originally contacted through her attorney to be a part of the PSA in order to promote awareness of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. At no time was she made aware that any organization, oil company or otherwise had influence over Women of the Storm or its message. We have immediately asked for [Sandra’s] participation in the PSA be removed until the facts be determined.”

Sandra Bullock and Jesse James have finalized their divorce.
A spokesperson for Bullock - who split from husband Jesse in April following allegations he had cheated on her with a string of women - confirmed the couple signed papers last week to formally put an end to their five-year marriage. Citing “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason behind the split, the official divorce allows the Oscar-winning actress to complete her adoption of son Louis as a single parent.
The pair adopted the baby boy from New Orleans shortly before they split amid the avalanche of affair claims, which included tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee revealing she’d had an 11-month affair with Jesse. Jesse - who went to rehab following the separation to be treated for sex addiction - is also believed to have slept with at least five other women during his relationship with Sandra.
Sandra Bullock gave a surprise serenade at the Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery show on Tuesday.
The Oscar winning-actress - who has only recently begun a return to public life following revelations of her husband Jesse James’ affair with tattoo model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee - joked with crowds at the charity event at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee after learning the show had raised over $2 million.
Walking onto the stage holding an acoustic guitar, Sandra - who was there to introduce singer Faith Hill - told the crowd, “When they told me how much you all contributed, I realized I had to do more than be funny. I’m going to bring the house down. And I’m going to do it Nashville style!”

Yes - she braved the live cameras to appear at the MTV Movie Awards. Yes - she looked fabulous in her short dress with the low-cut back. And yes - she definitively declared that she has no plans to leave the film industry anytime soon.
But those aren’t the reasons why Sandra Bullock got people talking tonight.
During Sandra’s acceptance speech for the Generation Award, Scarlett Johansson got a chance to see why hubby Ryan Reynolds was co-nominated with Bullock for Best Kiss. (Cue the video to the 3:30 mark.)
Somewhere Meryl Streep isn’t feeling so special anymore.
