A Week In News: Miley on SNL, Gravity Storms Box-Office and Tom Hanks's Diabetes

Miley Cyrus Performs

Miley's Homecoming: Miley Cyrus made her triumphant return to Saturday Night Live on Sunday and, hey, what do you know, the reviews were actually pretty good. She clearly had plenty of material to work with, though it seems like the Wrecking Ball star did a pretty good job. Check out the reaction here.

Gravity's Pull: Alfonso Cuaron's sci-fi thriller Gravity exceeded expectations at the box office during its opening weekend, pulling in a massive $50 million despite modest promotion. Of course, it was the unanimously positive reviews that drove movie fans to the theaters, leaving Gravity as a very credible Oscar contender indeed. Read our roundup here.

The Captain: Tom Hanks revealed that he had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes this week, meaning he will be unable to gain weight for movie roles. The Oscar winner has another potential awards magnet on his hands with Paul Greengrass's Captain Phillips. Check out our five-star review here.

Jimmy Kimmel

Kanye vs Kimmel: We were as shocked as you guys upon hearing the news that Kanye West had been booked for the Jimmy Kimmel show despite the pair's recent war of words. As it turns out, the whole thing was slick PR exercise that made Kanye seem a little more chilled out and Kimmel a touch more understanding. Read all about their feud here.

Knockout News: Great news this week for Hayden Panettiere and long-time boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko who confirmed their engagement. Nashville star Hayden - who is considerably, CONSIDERABLY smaller than her future husband, announced the news on Live with Kelly and Michael. Read all about it here. 

Julian vs Benedict: In the second of this week's celebrity feuds of sorts, Julian Assange's letter to Benedict Cumberbatch regarding the WikiLeaks movie The Fifth Estate has come to light. In it, the website founder brands the flick a "wretched film" and urges Benedict to "reconsider [his] involvement in this enterprise." Read the whole thing here.

Did Marilyn Monroe have cosmetic surgery?

Marilyn Under the Knife? It's a question that has been posed on many occasion, though one auction house in the U.S appears to have the answer. Documents suggest Monroe went under the knife for surgery on her chin. Could it be true? Read up on the story here.

Carrie Prank: And finally, the Carrie prank. You must have seen it. If you haven't, watch it immediately. We're not even going to bother setting this one up, so if you like horror movies, hidden camera shows, cool New York coffee shops and moving furniture - just click the link.

Video of the Week: This week's hottest footage comes from the Saturday Night Live afterparty in New York where Miley Cyrus was seen attempting to chat and take photographs with fans, until all hell broke loose. Check it out here.
