The Week In News: Angelina Jolie's double mastectomy, Bill Hader leaves Saturday Night Live and Beyonce pregnant, again?

Angelina Jolie

Simply Heroic: Angelina Jolie stunned the world this week after revealing she had undergone a double mastectomy in order to reduce her risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. The Oscar-winning actress lost her mother to cancer and was keen to limit the chances of the same thing happening to her brood. 

Darth Hader: After eight years on Saturday Night Live, Bill Hader has announced he is leaving the show when its season ends on Saturday. "It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point," Mr. Hader said in an interview. "It got to a point where I said, 'Maybe it's just time to go." He will certainly be missed!

Bey's Baby No.2? Is Beyonce pregnant again? That's the speculation this week after the R&B superstar cancelled a show in Antwerp, Belgium, on doctor's orders. She's since apologized for axing the show, but is there something she's not telling us?

Jay-Z

Jay's 1939 Look-Alike?! We were simply flabbergasted this week after seeing a photograph of a Harlem loiterer chilling on the street in 1939. Although it looks an assuming image at first, look a little closer and you'll see  himself. Check it out!

Lo-And-Behold! Well, we can't say we didn't see this one coming. After just a couple of weeks at the Betty Ford Center, Lindsay Lohan is just about done with her rehabilitation! She apparently wants to move to another centre on the west-coast that has less old school approaches. Good luck with that!

Jack Bauer's Back! Great news for '24' fans this week, with Fox announcing a new one-off series of the best-loved crime-drama. Kiefer Sutherland's back in the saddle as Jack Bauer, which is just as well, given Fox cancelled his pretty well received series 'Touch.'

Michael J Fox

Magic Mike! It's been a pretty hectic couple of weeks for the networks, who are busy working out their autumn schedules. It's great news for Michael J Fox fans who will see the legendary Hollywood actor helming his own eponymous show on NBC. Fox plays a New York newsman suffering from Parkinson's disease. It looks great fun. Check out the trailer!

$17 Million!? While Shakira is on her way out of The Voice, it looks as though Christina Aguilera may be heading back to the panel. According to industry website The Wrap, the singer has agreed a $17 million deal to return!

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage comes from an exclusive Twitter chat with Hugh Jackman, who discusses his upcoming role in the forthcoming Wolverine movie. The movie's shaping up to be something special!
