Back in 2004, Jim Carrey would take the lead role in a movie adaptation of the first three books in the Lemony Snicket property, 'A Series Of Unfortunate Events'.

Ian McKellen Ellen Page Neil Patrick Harris Andrew Scott Matt Bomer

Ian McKellen has offered his own opinion about diversity in Hollywood following the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. He believes that it's not only black people who are being overlooked in the film industry, but gay actors too; especially since straight stars have indeed won Oscars for playing gay men (Tom Hanks, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Sean Penn) but never the other way round.

Ellen Degeneres Neil Patrick Harris Lady GaGa Zoe Saldana

All around the world hearts are bursting with victory as marriage equality is held up by law in every single US state. Celebrities have flocked to Twitter in their hundreds to express their support of the news, as the Supreme Court finally rules that same-sex marriage is legal under the Constitution.

Portia De Rossi and Ellen DegeneresEllen Degeneres Tweeted her support of the marriage equality ruling

It's been a long time coming but the US has finally followed in the footsteps of the UK and Ireland by legalizing same-sex marriage in a move that has touched the hearts of millions. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy revealed the majority opinion was 5 to 4, before sharing his own thoughts on the verdict for those who would be affected. 'Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves', he said. 'Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.'
