What colours do you see in #TheDress?
A picture of a dress from fashion retailer Roman Originals has split the internet. Around half of people see the dress as black and blue whilst the other half sees white and gold. The picture of the dress went viral earlier this week when Caitlin McNeill, a 21-year-old singer from Scotland, posted the image on her Tumblr account. The story was soon picked up on by such news outlets as Buzzfeed, further fuelling the debate.
Host Neil Patrick Harris seems to be shouldering the blame for the worst Oscars viewing figures since 2009.
This year’s Academy Awards was the least watched in six years, according to preliminary viewing figures. USA Today reported that initial Nielsen estimates put the 87th Awards stats at 36.6 million viewers, the lowest since 2009.
Sunday’s ceremony, hosted by actor Neil Patrick Harris and dominated by Birdman, was a pretty steep 16% drop on last year’s awards when 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture. Ellen Degeneres hosted that one and, powered by a memorable selfie which was then re-tweeted around the world, it had 43.7 million viewers.

Kathy Griffin hosted the awards show.
Turns out that Edgar is Julia Roberts' number one fan!
Those celebrities aren't all about posing, being paid to endorse products and dodging paps: turns out some like to do a little nice thing or two every now and again. True, Julia Roberts appearing on Ellen isn't going to sort out the mess in Ukraine but the August: Osage County star certainly made us laugh with a prank she played on the Oscars pizza delivery guy.
Julia Roberts Surprised The Oscars Pizza Delivery Guy On 'Ellen.'
Don't remember him? Well at the Oscars this year, host Ellen Degeneres got the party started by ordering pizza from a real life takeaway to be delivered to her glamorous audience. Instead of worrying about the calories or their chiffon frocks, many of the stars munched away happily as Edgar Martirosyan and his team dished out a few margheritas.
The Sultan of Brunei has brought in Shariah law, celebs react in their outraged hoards.
Record producer Clive Davis has become the latest big name to shun hotels owned by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who announced last week that he would proceed with the introduction of the Islamic Sharia law, a criminal code that permits severing of limbs and death by stoning for people who are gay or commit adultery.
Clive Davis Has Joined Others In Boycotting The Dorchester Chain Of Hotels.

Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison. But who is the Los Angeles photographer?
Jodie Foster has married her girlfriend of a year, Alexandra Hedison. The nuptials have been confirmed by Foster’s publicist, after celebrity network E! began circulating rumors over the weekend. The pair wed at an undisclosed location, although Foster resides in California, which is one of the 17 US states in which gay marriage is legal. Hedison was born and raised in California, so it’s likely that it is where the wedding took place.
Jodie Foster has married her partner of a year, Alexandra Hedison
Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster publicly came out at last year’s Golden Globes, announcing “I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago, back in the stone age. In those very quaint days when a fragile young girl would open up to trusted friends and family, coworkers and then gradually, proudly to everyone who knew her. To everyone she actually met.”
Continue reading: Who Is Jodie Foster's New Wife, Alexandra Hedison?
Foster and her girlfriend slipped under the media radar with their wedding this past weekend.
Congratulations to Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison, who just tied the knot this week! The actress’ publicist confirmed the news to TMZ. According to the entertainment website, Foster and Hedison had the ceremony last weekend, having dated for a year. This is essentially all the information released about the pair’s wedding, since they apparently kept the proceedings low-key and private. The location or even exact day of the wedding has not been disclosed.
Foster and her now-wife have reportedly been dating for about a year.
According to The Telegraph, Ms Hedison, 44, has been linked previously to comedienne Ellen Degeneres. Foster and Hedison had been seen in each other’s company in Los Angeles on a number of occasions, fuelling speculation about their relationship.

The pair are back; will they get it right this time?
Okay, ready for another awards season? The dust has barely settled on 2014’s selfie-centric Oscars, but the Academy are already looking ahead to another winter of speculation by confirming Neil Meron and Craig Zadan are returning as producers for a third ceremony in a row.
Zadan and Meron will work on The Oscars again
It’s not as if the pair have gleaned critical acclaim for their last two efforts; Seth Macfarlane’s ceremony was considered to be too focussed on musicals, while DeGeneres’ was criticised for being too boring. Perhaps the producer pair can find some middle ground considering they’re taking on the middle of the decade in 2015.
Zadan and Meron have been invited back, which means we can once again expect a digitally active Oscars ceremony.
The directorial duo Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have become favorites around Hollywood come awards season and now they’ve been called on again to produce the 2015 Oscars ceremony. This will be Zadan and Meron’s third consecutive year running the live broadcast after this year’s ceremony brought in the best ratings in 14 years. Almost 44 million viewers in the United States tuned into the ABC live telecast of Hollywood's biggest night, hosted by comedian, talk show host and potential demigod Ellen Degeneres, 8 percent more than the previous year and the highest number since 2000, according to Nielsen ratings data, via Reuters.
Zadan and Meron's last turn at the Oscars was nothing short of a rousing success.
Whatever Zadan and Meron are doing – so far they have been banking on broad social media appeal – has been working.
Piers Morgan has criticised the US government for quailing under pressure from the gun lobby. Morgan delivered an impassioned speech on the last episode of his CNN show 'Piers Morgan Live'.
Piers Morgan ended his three year run on his CNN talk show Piers Morgan Live on Friday (28th March) with a plea to the US government to change "the absurd gun laws".Morgan's show was cancelled following low ratings and possibly his involvement in the phone hacking scandal, nevertheless he left the show on a somewhat controversial note.
Morgan, ever controversial, used his final show as an opportunity to comment on the social and political implications of gun laws in the US. He referenced recent tragedies in which guns were used to kill large numbers of people which prompted criticism of gun laws in the US and worldwide.
Morgan has spent a number of years in the states over the past decade and described gun violence, such as that displayed in the Connecticut Sandy Hook massacre and the Colorado Aurora Cinema, as "a disease that infects every aspect of American life". Referencing these attacks Morgan said, as The Independent reports: "I assumed that after 70 people were shot in a movie theatre and then just a few months later 20 first-graders were murdered with an assault rifle in an elementary school, that the absurd gun laws in this country would change, but nothing has happened".

Ellen DeGeneres stole the show on Sunday's Academy Awards, we look at how far she has come since her early days on the comedy circuit in the 1980's.
Ellen Degeneres has become the most popular and loved television host in the States, cemented by her flawless performance hosting the Academy Awards on Sunday night. Ellen had the celebrities roaring with laughter as well as, at one stage, gathered together for a selfie. Ellen’s superstar selfie was retweeted over 2,000,000 times, crashing the server and making it the most retweeted pic of all time.
Ellen and her wife Portia have been married since 2008
Ellen had previously hosted the Oscars back in 2007, but even by then she had been in the business for over 20 years. Ellen started in the stand up biz back in the early 1980’s, before getting her own sitcom Ellen in 1994. During the fourth season of the sitcom, Ellen publicly announced that she was a lesbian during an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her character in the sitcom shortly followed suit and, in an episode called “The Puppy Episode”, which received some of the highest-ratings that Ellen had had so far, also came out. The show then went on to tackle some issues faced by the LGBT community, but after another season the show was axed due to falling ratings.

"Adele Dazeem" - the words that will haunt John Travolta, forever more.
There’s a fine line between the ignominy of Internet mockery and online hysteria. Jennifer Lawrence, for instance, enjoys the latter, while John Travolta calling Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars on Sunday night really secures you a place in the former camp.
There's something ridiculous about John Travolta - we just can't work out what it is
But this mockery isn’t all bad; after all, he only got someone’s name wrong. He did embellish the introduction with things like “wickedly talented” etc., but he only got Menzel’s name wrong.
The official Academy Awards after party was a glamorous affair.
The Governor's Ball once again played host to the biggest names in filmmaking this year as Oscar winners, nominees and guests filled the glamorous after party with celebration. After an immense and monumental year in filmmaking, there was plenty to celebrate as winners clutched their shiny trophies and hob-nobbed with the press.
Ellen Degeneres Was The Talk Of The Evening After A Triumphant Hosting Stint.
The party room was decked out with floral curtains which gave an enchanting midnight garden effect and provided a beautiful backdrop for the many flowing ballgowns. Whilst waiting to get their statuettes engraved with their name, Oscar winners were treated to a bar, entertainment from singer John Legend and a gourmet meal cooked by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck served on tables decorated with miniature chocolate Oscars.

Selfies, pizza and audience participation Ellen manages to turn the Oscars into an awesome party.
Ellen Degeneres had her second go at hosting the Oscars this year, after seven years away. There’s was no doubt that the academy were looking for something different to Seth MacFarlane last year and the veteran chat show host delivered. From the selfie seen round the world to the pizza run for the stars, Ellen had many stand out moments from her Academy Awards hosting gig.

This year's Oscars were the most 'selfied' yet as the stars shared their pics with the world.
One way to view the Academy Awards last night was through the eyes of the stars themselves, as many of them took to Instagram and Twitter to keep us up to date with their Oscar night happenings.
Some stars started their picture taking before they even got to the ceremony, like Joseph Gordon-Levitt who tweeted a pic of himself literally on his way to the awards, taking a selfie in his limousine. Joseph later shared a picture of himself and co-presenter Emma Watson having fun pulling some faces backstage.

Ellen DeGeneres' Oscars selfie may well have shifted a ton of Samsung Galaxy Note 3's. Just check out that crisp quality.
Ok, so we don't know if Samsung has seen a sales spike in their Galaxy Note 3 model since the Academy Awards, but Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie wouldn't have hurt interest in the technology giant's popular cell-phone.
Ellen DeGeneres' Oscars Selfie is the most retweeted image in history
In case you've been holed away for the past 24 hours, you'll have heard about Ellen's famous Oscars selfie, which broke the record for the most re-tweeted post ever and apparently 'broke' the micro-blogging website. Yep, the Academy Awards host - who did a pretty damn good job of things - gathered together a few A-list friends including Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey and Meryl Streep for the most famous selfie in history.
Not everyone had a fabulous time at last night's Oscars.
Liza Minnelli didn't have exactly the best time at last night's Oscars. As one of Hollywood's biggest veteran stars, the actress didn't receive the respect that a performer of her calibre would deserve. From being the target of a mean zing from Ellen Degeneres, to having her outfit mocked in the media and being laughed at for not being able to reach into the famous 'Oscars Selfie' in time, Liza could have had a nicer evening at home.
Liza Minnelli Hasn't Been Treated So Kindly In The Wake Of The Oscars.
The glamorous awards evening started on the red carpet where Liza, the daughter of Judy Garland, debuted a striking new streak of blue in her black hair and wore a matching silky pantsuit with dramatic diamond jewellery. As the snaps of Minnelli hit the internet, commenters began to point out and mock the fact that the actress probably wasn't wearing a bra under her slinky suit.
The Ellen DeGeneres Oscars Selfie: did Jennifer Lawrence have the best pose or was it Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt...or Kevin Spacey?
Pretty much everyone has seen the Ellen Degeneres Oscars selfie by now; the celeb-packed pic that sent the Twittersphere into melt-down and quickly became the most retweeted image of all time. The Oscars host somehow gathered the cream of the awards' red carpet for last night's impromptu snap, which has become the evening's most shared and talked about image.
Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie Has Become The Most-Shared Image On Twitter.
The glory of the Oscars selfie lies in the pure and unabashed joy seen on every one of its twelve featured Hollywood stars' faces. Gone are the pouts, poses and glowers of the red carpet pap-snap and instead we have a bunch of gorgeous and joyous actors ready to party at the year's biggest movie awards.
No awards? No matter! Brangelina was centre of attention at the Oscars.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie once again made sure all eyes were on them at last night's Academy Awards as they led the Hollywood royalty down the red carpet whilst looking very much the loved-up pair. The acting duo were virtually inseparable when posing for photos on the red carpet, making sure they were always touching and flashing dazzling smiles.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Echoed The BAFTAs In Their Oscars Union.
After last month's BAFTAs in London where the couple appeared in a matching tuxedo ensemble, Angelina decided to opt for a more feminine look at the Oscars and picked out a sparkling metallic and sheer gown by Elie Saab Haute Couture with diamond earrings and smoky eyes. Brad, as usual, played it safe with another classic and well-cut tuxedo and bowtie.
Ellen DeGeneres' opening monologue, at the 86th Academy-Awards, is expected to be less offensive and more cautious due to the delicate nature of this year's film nominee's.
The 86th Academy-Awards will be honouring one of the most impressive years for cinema in recent memory.
However, it will also be one of the most sensitive, as several of the key films depict real-life events.
With this in mind, it won't be surprising if the host, Ellen Degeneres, performs a far more tamed opening monologue compared last year's emcee, Seth MacFarlane.
How will the well respected host handle her second Oscars?
There are two of Oscar host: the one who’ll set out to insult as many people whilsy trying not to cross an invisible headline with a view to entertaining the audience at home, and then there’s the type who knows his-or-her-limits, and can be relied upon to give a solid performance. Ellen Degeneres almost certainly falls under the latter category.
Ellen DeGeneres has hosted The Oscars before
“My intentions are to make people happy," the 56-year-old host told Robin Roberts on ‘Good Morning America’. "My intentions are to never hurt anybody, and my intentions are to have compassion and to hope I can spread that a little bit every single day." (Via New York Daily News)

This year's show might not be as controversial, but Zadan and Meron are still going all out.
Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made a controversial hit out of the Oscars last year, but they might be on thin ice this time. Getting Seth McFarlane to host anything is a risky bet and his antics last year got a lot of people – notably the feminist crowd – pretty riled up. The controversy served its purpose. Last year’s show pulled in 40.3 million US viewers, the largest audience the show has had in three years. Zadan and Meron’s show was a hit with the key 18-49 demographic and the duo were invited back this year.
Ellen might be a safer choice for host, but she is far from boring.
And yet. The choice of Ellen for this year’s host suggests that the producers were at least a little bit intimidated by last year’s backlash. This year’s host, Ellen, while hilarious and ever entertaining, is a much safer option and has proven appeal with the Oscars’ key demo – women.
Ellen Page publically came out as gay on Friday whilst presenting a speech at a human rights conference in Las Vegas.

Sandra Bullock was the big winner on the night, with Justin Timberlake and Ellen DeGeneres also taking home gongs
The People's Choice Awards kicks started awards season and the celebrities didn't let down as they came out in force and with style in Los Angeles for the fan-favourites awards show on Wednesday, 8 January. The 40th incarnation of the awards show, there was no shortage of class and glamour as the people's favourite movies, TV shows, actors and actresses were singled out over the course of the night.

The buddy cop comedy The Heat that she starred in with Melissa McCarthy won the Favourite Comedic Movie award.
The first Oscars promo was released today and it's... different.
The brand new trailer for the Oscars with host Ellen Degeneres looks more like it’s promoting the Tony Awards than the stuffy, glitzy Academy Awards. Not that anyone would mind – a choreographed dance number is always alright with us and if it includes tuxedoes, that’s even better.
With Degeneres hosting, it'll be an Oscars ceremony like no other.
While it doesn’t really feature any movie references, the minute-long video sets an entirely different tone for the awards than the one we’re used to. This looks more like something out of the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globes or Neil Patrick Harris’ Oscars, rather than the most competitive movie awards ceremony in Hollywood.

The 'Glee' star appeared on 'Ellen' this week where she finally opened up about the death of her boyfriend
Five months after the untimely death of actor Cory Monteith, his Glee co-star and girlfriend both on and off screen Lea Michele has finally opened up about the passing and explained how she has coped with her grief. Appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show this week, the actress told Ellen that she has been slowly moving on from the passing, as that is what Cory would have wanted her to do.
Lea and Cory were very much in love before his passing
The 27-year-old actress went on to explain how, even to this day, she is trying to cope with the loss and described the immense heartache and confusion she felt and still feels now. In spite of her grief, Michele told Ellen that she knew she couldn't dwell on Monteith's passing because it would bring her too far down. Instead she has focused all her energy on her career as she tries to do her best for Cory, to do his memory right.

The words of wisdom were given out by Brit whilst she was filling in for Ryan Seacrest on 'American Top 40'
Britney Spears has learnt much throughout her 32-years and whilst she sat in for Ryan Seacrest on the American Top 40 radio show, the singer was keen to dish out some word of wisdom to her fans. In between talking about her upcoming Las Vegas residency and her new album, Britney Jean, the singer also answered some personal questions too, with one person quizzing her on how best to get over a break-up.
Britney Jean is out now
"Just get another guy really quick!" Britney joked (via E! News). "I think if you get another boyfriend it's really easy to get over it."
Kaley Cuoco may have had a whirlwind romance with current partner Ryan Sweeting, but was it a whirlwind marriage we saw on 'Ellen Degeneres'?
'The Big Bang Theory' actress appeared on the show in an episode that was aired yesterday (November 7th 2013) and was surprised to see her lover of five months appear on stage. Ellen then roped in her friend Kevin - an apparently ordained minister - to conduct a short service declaring them both husband and wife. Ryan nervously asked, 'This isn't legal, right?' before the talk show host insisted it was and later reemphasised the fact on Twitter: 'Congratulations, @KaleyCuoco and @RyanSweeets. Your wedding was beautiful. And also, legally binding.'
However, we're not so sure it was the real deal here at Contactmusic. It's easy enough to be a minister online, but you can't be legally wed without a marriage license; so sorry to you romantic folk hoping you'd witnessed such a special moment. Also, it was rather obvious Ellen was joking about her Twitter post after re-Tweeting Ryan's message ('Thank you @TheEllenShow for making me feel at home. Baby number one: Ellen Sweeting') with the comment, 'This tweet is legally binding, too.'
The pair were wedded in an impromptu ceremony live on the show, after Cuoco had said she wants to get married as soon as possible.
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are married! Well, not exactly, or at all really, but they did provide pretty entertaining TV at least. The Big Bang Theory star and her professional tennis player lover man were pushed to exchange vows on the Ellen Degeneres Show by the shows host in an impromptu ceremony set up in their honour.
Sweeting and Cuoco got engaged in September
"This isn't legal, right?" Sweetings asked his bride-to-be as she was pushed by DeGeneres towards the makeshift canopy where he and head writer Kevin A. Leman II stood. Cuoco had been discussing life with her fiance, whom she got engaged to in September after three months of dating, when Ellen offered her the chance of an immediate wedding at the show's expense - an offer that she jumped at.

Kaley Cuoco appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' yesterday (6th November) and wed her fiancé on air. But don't worry, it's not a legally binding ceremony! This is not the first fake wedding the 'Big Bang Theory' star has been involved in as she was on set of 'The Wedding Ringer' in a white dress, but with a very different groom!
Kaley Cuoco and her fiancé, Ryan Sweeting, had an informal wedding rehearsal on national television when they appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Wednesday 6th November. Cuoco joined Ellen and discussed her engagement.
The couple at the 65th Emmy Awards, shortly before their engagement.
Ellen then thrust an impromptu wedding on her and Sweeting. In a strange twist of fate, something Cuoco also commented on, she was even wearing a white dress! The ceremony was carried out by one of the show's writers, although Sweetling appeared to be slightly hesitant about the fake wedding asking "This isn't legal right?"

Matt Bomer is the latest famous face to praise Wentworth for coming out as gay in protest to the LGBT community's treatment in Russia
When Wentworth Miller outed himself as gay in response to an invite from a Russia film festival, he was inundated with messages of support for his public outing and for protesting the archaic anti-homosexuality legislation rife in the former communist country. After receiving praise from the likes Neil Patrick Harris, Ellen DeGeneres and Jesse Tyler Ferguson on Twitter, the latest star to tip their hat at Wentworth is White Collar star Matt Boomer.

Rosie McCelland (L) and Sophie Grace Brownlee (R) at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, held at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Brownlee first came to public attention after appearing on a YouTube video covering Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass'. The 2011 video went viral of Brownlee, and her cousin Rosie McClelland, went viral and the two girls have since appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show. They have appeared on the talk show on multiple occasions as they have gained the approval of the crowd.
The organisers behind the awards show have taken the safest option by picking the comic and talk show host to follow Seth McFarlane.
Ellen Degeneres has been picked as the host of next years Academy Awards ceremony, as organisers look to boost ratings and eliminate any potential controversy with next year's show. DeGeneres was picked from a nearly-bottomless list of potential candidates, emerging as the safest bet and the host most likely to guarantee a decent audience turnaround when the show is aired next year.
Ellen will host the Oscars for a second time next year
As first reported by Variety, Ellen is by no means a stranger to the awards show-circuit, having previously hosted the 2001 and 2005 Emmys and the Oscars in 2007, all of which produced very strong viewer-ratings, a feat that the show's organisers will hope can be replicated when she takes on hosting duties at the 2014 Oscars. Whilst her last hosting job came more than half a decade ago, her popularity has shown no signs of diminishing and if anything, Ellen has become an even bigger name with each passing year and her appointment seems to mirror her ever-ascending success.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host and his new wife Molly - the head writer on his show - showed their sense of humour, welcoming their prankster guest with laughter as both clearly enjoyed the stunt. So as not to hog the limelight from beautiful bride Molly, Sidibe changed into a tight red dress and flat white shoes after the surprise had rippled through the wedding party.

In a female dominated list, Oprah is back!
Forbes have just released their 100 Most Influential Entertainers list and Oprah has made a comeback as No. 1. True, it might not be a real comeback, considering that she only dropped to No. 2 in the past two years, but this is Oprah Winfrey we’re talking about – the woman never does anything halfway, comebacks included. According to Forbes, Winfrey has had an $88 million drop in earnings between June of last year and June 2013. However, the chart makes it clear that other factors, besides earnings are also taken into consideration when creating the list.
This year Winfrey returnes to her rightful place.
And while it is unknown exactly what those factors are – marketability, social media presence and entrepreneurial decisions are thought to be among them – Winfrey’s handling of the nosedive her OWN network took in the last two years, as well as her management of the rest of her media empire, including O Magazine, a network on Sirius XM and shows by protégés like Dr Phil means that she once again fits the bill. Winfrey made $77 million last year, down significantly from $165 million for the same period last year. That’s still a lot of money though, even for the entertainment industry, and the media empress is set to increase said profits in the coming year, as her newly rebuilt OWN network is predicted to begin turning a profit by the end of 2013. This year, OWN has undergone a complete overhaul, cutting out unprofitable project and replacing them with original programming, created by Winfrey herself with the help of Tyler Perry – another Forbes 100 staple.
The comedienne is working with Jeff Kleeman to bring Graham's first novel to the small screen
Ellen Degeneres will produce a new television series based on Lauren Graham's debut novel, Someday, Someday, Maybe, with the book being turned into a one-hour drama series for Warner Bros. TV. Graham is currently in the process of developing her work for the screen, The Hollywood Reported confirmed on Tuesday (June 11) this week.
The Gilmore Girls actress released the semi-autobiographical account of her time in New York as a young, budding actress earlier this year, with the book reaching the top-spot of the New York Times bestseller list upon it's release. Graham will write the script, which will stick to the story of a young woman who has reached the final six months of her three-year plan to make it as an actress whilst living in New York City.
Jeff Kleeman will be producing the series with DeGeneres and will see Graham team up with Warner Bros. for the first time since the end of her seven season-run on The Gilmore Girls. The series is in a foetus-like stage at the moment, with no potential stars lined-up for the show as of yet. We'll keep you posted on developments as they progress.

Courteney Cox and David Arquette have finalized their divorce, but their friendship is stronger than ever.
Courteney Cox's divorce from David Arquette is finally complete, two years after the couple decided to end their decade long marriage. "Irreconcilable differences have caused the irremediable breaking of the marriage," say the papers signed by Cox, Arquette and a judge. "The marital status of the parties is terminated."
Friends actress Cox, 48, and movie actor Arquette, 41, announced their separate way back in October 2010 and both filed divorce papers on the same day in June 2012. By all accounts, the couple have behaved admirably through the divorce and it's easily one of the most amicable celebrity breakups of recent times - probably owing to their 8-year-old daughter Coco. The couple remain the tightest of friends, "He's my best friend in the world," the Cougar Town star said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January. "I love him." The following week, Scream actor Arquette told People magazine, "She's incredible. ... I love her, too, and she's an amazing person, a beautiful person. I don't recommend divorce in general, but he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed, and I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do."
Following their split, apparently over Arquette's infidelity, Courteney and Coco regularly turned out to watch the actor during his stint on Dancing with the Stars.

Breaking news: gorgeous actress Amanda Seyfried feels good naked.
Amanda Seyfried doesn’t have any body image issues concerning her breasts – not anymore at least. The actress was recently a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show and the conversation somehow turned to the size of Amanda’s assets – which the actress clearly had no problem with. She did advocate against harsh diets though, saying: "I looked way better when I was 15. I had huge breasts, and then I came to Hollywood and I was like 'I got to lose weight. I got to look thin and fit,' and I lost them a little bit."
The actress admitted that she now has no problem with the size and shape of any part of her body, but it did take her a while to get to this point. When Ellen asked whether Seyfried now thinks she looks good naked, the Red Riding Hood actress had this to say: "At this point in my life I do. Because you know what, it just doesn't matter anymore. You just have to. Like, when you're young you don't appreciate it, and I feel like everyone that's a bit older wishes they appreciated when they were young."
The topic came about when Amanda and Ellen were discussing Seyfried’s recent appearance in Allure magazine’s 'How to Look Good Naked' issue. When asked by the host why she was the only woman in the issue, who wasn’t actually naked (so don't waste your time scouring Google), Seyfried answered: “I really don’t know. No one asked me to be. I don’t wanna take it personally, but no one mentioned nudity.”
