Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Johnny Depp is addressing his split from his wife Amber Heard.

In a statement obtained by People magazine, a rep for the Alice Through the Looking Glass star said, "Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."

Heard, 30, reportedly filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. Depp reportedly has requested the court reject her claim for spousal support.

She met Depp, 52, on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and married him in February of 2015.

As Depp's rep referenced in the statement, the actor lost his mother three days before the divorce filing.

Alan Markfield; Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- It’s not easy stepping into Halle Berry’s shoes, but X-Men: Apocalypse actress Alexandra Shipp is enjoying everything that comes with the territory of portraying a new version of the supernatural mutant Storm.

Everything -- including advances from female admirers.

On Thursday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the Phoenix native revealed that when she shaved her head for the Mohawk her character sports, she got more attention from female fans -- and liked it.

“I’ve been getting hit on by the ladies a little more lately,” she confessed. “I like it.”

The Emmy Award-nominated hostess probed further and asked her did she ever kiss a girl.

And in true Katy Perry form, the 24-year-old actress quipped:  “I’ve kissed a girl and I like it.”

A former soap opera actress, Shipp broke through portraying the lead role in the Lifetime biopic of late R&B singer Aaliyah.  Last year, she played Ice Cube’s wife, Kim, in the blockbuster hit movie Straight Outta Compton.

Tommaso Boddi/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Anne Hathaway gave birth to her first child, a boy, just two months ago but has already quickly learned what an adventure being a parent can be.

Hathaway revealed in an interview that aired today on Good Morning America that she hasn’t seen the first 20 minutes of her new adventure fantasy movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass, because of her son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman.

“I'm sorry. I am a new mother and I didn't time the feeding schedule -- well, like I have any control over it,” Hathaway, 33, told ABC News’ Chris Connelly with a laugh. “My kid was hungry, I had to feed him, I missed the first 20 minutes so I can't tell you about the beginning of the movie.”

Alice Through the Looking Glass puts a new twist on the backstory of Hathaway’s character, the White Queen. Hathaway called that story her character’s “secret” in the movie.

While the film revisits the fury of Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal of the Red Queen, it also puts a new twist on the backstory of Hathaway’s White Queen.

“It was nice to find out that she wasn't so good all the time,” Hathaway said of her character. “She's covering something up. And that all that goodness is kind of put on so the people don't find out her secret.”

The Oscar winner and her husband, Adam Shulman, shared their own secret in January when Hathaway posted an Instagram photo of herself in a bikini, proudly showing off her pregnant belly.

“I hadn't planned on ever confirming it and then I just, I had seen a photographer while I was on vacation, taking a photo, and I just thought, ‘It's such a joyful and a sacred experience, you know, carrying life,’” Hathaway explained. “And I just thought, ‘I don't want the first version of this to be out there with me covering or scowling at someone.'"

She added, “You know, that's not representative of the experience, so I chose a photo that I was happy with, and I put it out there.”

Hathaway's royal role in Alice Through the Looking Glass debuts 15 years after a crown was first placed on her head in the classic young adult movie The Princess Diaries.

"More so than any other film that I've been in, that film has legacy and it just has meant so much to so many people," Hathaway said of the film, which also starred Julie Andrews. "It's given people the opportunity, you know, little girls and little boys to curl up with their parents on the couch and throw on their sweatpants and sit and cuddle and it's a real honor to think that something that you've been a part of becomes a part of the fabric of people's lives, you know?"

Alice Through the Looking Glass is in theaters now.

Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc.(NEW YORK) -- Jeopardy!'s current champion is causing quite the divide on the Internet with his quirky attitude, witty repartee and sharp outfits.

Buzzy Cohen, the nine-day reigning champ, has already earned $164,000 and is showing it off in a way never seen before on the show.

He felt comfortable enough at one point to pass up prize money in “Final Jeopardy,” wagering $0 just to make a joke.

Cohen, tapping into his inner Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery on the Saturday Night Live Jeopardy! riff, used answers like "What is ‘See You Tomorrow, Trebek?’"

Alex Trebek, of course, is the longtime Jeopardy! host.

The contestant's behavior rapidly gained traction across the Internet, sparking the question: smug or sexy?

People are taking to social media, posting comments on Twitter, asking, "Has there ever been a more punchable Jeopardy champion?"

Whether people love him or hate him, Cohen told ABC News, "This is just me. This is my hair and these are my glasses.”

One fan tweeted, "I have never loved a man the way I love Buzzy Cohen."

"There are people who have sought me out and sent me messages,” Cohen said, adding that the messages include "Things that you can't say on TV."

Even Jeopardy! host Trebek seems to be jumping on the Buzzy train, mimicking Cohen's suave moves like slicking his hair back for correctly answering questions.

Image courtesy of HBO; Helen Sloan/courtesy of HBO(NEW YORK) -- It's been five days of mourning since we bid farewell to Hodor -- the loyal servant of Winterfell and Brandon Stark's right-hand man on Game of Thrones.

Now Bran himself, actor Isaac H. Wright, paid sweet homage to the late character with a tribute on his Twitter page.

"Even though Hodor may be gone, @KristianNairn isn't getting away from me that easy...#HoldTheDoor #GameofThrones," Wright tweeted Wednesday.

Fans watched helplessly Sunday night as the simple-minded Hodor -- played by actor Kristian Nairn -- was apparently killed by the zombie-like wights as he protected Bran and the group from the same fate.

Nairn told Entertainment Weekly earlier this week that he "loved" the way his character went out by saving the lives of his friends.

Nairn tweeted a selfie of himself alongside buddy Wright while the two actors shared what may or may not be a "Hold the Door"-themed cake, writing, "Even after all he's done to poor hodor. I'm still sharing my cake with @Isaac_H_Wright #love #gameofthrones."

Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse; Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- Ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, humans and mutants coexist -- but not exactly in peace.

Rewind, because that’s not how our story starts.  It begins in ancient Egypt, where we first meet our bad guy: Apocalypse. It’s simultaneously electrifying and slightly hilarious. No, I’m not going to elaborate -- I’ll just leave it there. In fact, I can’t wait for Honest Trailers to give this movie their treatment. But I digress.

Apocalypse is a mutant with a god complex.  In an effort to take over the world, he seduces four mutants to help him do his bidding. But things don’t exactly work out for him and he winds up buried in the ground for a few thousand years.

Back to the present day.  Apocalypse -- En Sabah Nur, if you’re nasty -- is kind of a myth but has a small group of followers who not only believe he exists, they’ve unearthed his tomb in hopes of resurrecting him.

In the United States, we get the origin story of Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, a kid whose looks can, literally, kill. We’re introduced to a number of new mutants in this movie, in fact, and reintroduced to others, the most interesting of which is Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. In addition to one particular, jaw-dropping, “explosive” sequence in which Quicksilver steals the show, Peters is an engaging, scene-stealing presence. The guy’s got a high ceiling and I expect, at some point in his career, he’ll be one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood.

There’s really only one other emotionally engaging element to this movie, and that’s Magneto’s storyline.  He goes into hiding in Germany, pretending to be a regular guy who gets married, has a daughter and works in a steel factory -- which given his metal-manipulating mutation is kind of like a recovering alcoholic taking a job in a distillery. While it’s a choice that defies logic, Magneto’s plight, and the way Michael Fassbender plays it, elicits empathy.

I forgot to mention that Oscar Isaac plays Apocalypse and for, perhaps, the first time in his career, he makes zero impact. You can barely tell its him.  Quite frankly, you could’ve put any number of actors in all that make-up and I don’t think it would’ve made a difference. Apocalypse feels more like a symbol than a fully fleshed-out character.

In other words, X-Men: Apocalypse focuses on -- nothing. It doesn’t have a focus. Instead, too many chefs in the kitchen kind of spoil the apocalypse. It’s overwritten, overproduced and underdeveloped, but even so, it’s not bereft of entertainment value. It’s still a visual spectacle with some outstanding performances, most notably from Fassbender, James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier,  Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Peters.

Three out of five stars.

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Are Dancing with the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd making room for another little pair of dancing feet?

The couple, who got engaged back in December, are expecting, sources tell People magazine.

This will be the first child for both Murgatroyd, 29, and Chmerkovskiy, 36.

Peta -- who along with her DWTS partner, America's Next Top Model season-22 winner Nyle DiMarco, was crowned this season's Mirror Ball champion on Tuesday -- was tight-lipped when asked about wedding plans after the show, according to the entertainment magazine, but did reveal that she and Chmerkovskiy have “chosen some dates.”

A rep for the couple has yet to comment.

In the meantime, Maks will head out with his brother Valentin Chmerkovskiy on Maks & Val Live on Tour: Our Way this summer.

Dancing with the Stars returns for its 23rd season in September on ABC.

L-R: Anne Hathaway, Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska; Peter Mountain/Walt Disney Studios(LOS ANGELES) -- Alice Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, opens in theaters tonight.  If you've seen the trailers, you know it's a CGI effects spectacle.  And that led to director James Bobin receiving some sage advice from the previous film's director, Tim Burton.

"Don't shoot on green screen, it kills your eyes," Bobin said Burton told him, referring to the backdrop of scenes to which computer-generated effects will later be added.

"Because after four weeks of doing it he started wearing purple sunglasses," Bobin explains. "So I said great, I won't do that, I'll shoot on blue, so we shot this movie on blue screen, which I'm here to say is really a lot easier."

Bobin says he felt a "great weight of responsibility" in directing the project. "Alice is a thing as a kid in England you read, you know, when you're growing up, your parents read it to you, you read it yourself," the British filmmaker says. "And in England everyone knows that there's two books, you have the two books as well, so you know the books better than you know the movie in many ways." 

Alice Through the Looking Glass stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. It will be released by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

L-R: Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, James McAvoy, Lucas Till and Nicholas Hoult; Alan Markfield/Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- The mutant superheroes are back in X-Men: Apocalypse.

“The stakes are definitely higher in this one because we’ve never had a villain before that’s like straight up about to wipe off the face of the earth,” star Jennifer Lawrence tells ABC News of the latest chapter in the X-Men film franchise.

Lawrence's character, the shape-shifting Mystique, teams up with telepath Professor Charles Xavier, leader of the X-Men, to battle the most powerful mutant of all — the immortal Apocalypse. But our heroes get the job done, with help from a new generation of mutants.

“It’s got everything you want in your summer blockbusters in terms of all that crash, bang and wallop in action, and all that stuff,” says James McAvoy, who plays Xavier.

Lawrence also says that in this film, her character is “growing up a little bit more. “She’s not so focused on rebelling anymore, she’s more interested in the betterment of the mutants.”

Sophie Turner, best known to most as Sansa Stark from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, plays a young Jean Grey, armed with her own formidable telepathic and telekinetic powers.

“Everyone was so welcoming, it was good,” said Turner of joining the franchise veterans. “And it’s just fun to play a small part in such a big ensemble cast.”

Oscar Isaac, who plays Apocalypse, agrees.  “It feels like an X-Men movie that I’ve been waiting for as well, you know, because some things happen that are so classic form the comic books,” he says.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens nationwide tomorrow.

Jeffrey Phelps/Getty Images(OZAUKEE COUNTY, Wis.) -- Former Saved by the Bell actor Dustin Diamond has been arrested, according to the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office in Wisconsin, less than a month after he was released from jail.

Diamond was arrested Wednesday afternoon for an unspecified alleged probation violation, according to officials, and booked into the county jail.

The 39-year-old actor, who played Screech on the sitcom Saved by the Bell, was released from jail earlier this month after serving time for allegedly stabbing a 25-year-old man in a Port Washington, Wisconsin, bar on Christmas Day 2014, according to a police report. The scuffle was captured on video.

Diamond was found guilty of carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, after a three-day trial in June 2015 and sentenced to four months behind bars.

Teresa Giudice on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in February 2016; Fred Lee/ABC via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A federal judge in New Jersey has re-opened the bankruptcy case against Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

Giudice just finished serving a 15-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud and admitting that she and her husband adjusted their income on bank and tax documents to qualify for certain loans.

Earlier this week, her lawyers argued before U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Stacey L. Meisel that the bankruptcy case shouldn't be re-opened because Giudice has paid off or has agreements to pay 27 of the 29 creditors listed in her 2009 bankruptcy filing, according to NJ.com.

But Meisel ruled against Guidice's team and ordered the case re-opened. Her decision could mean the reality star's unsatisfied creditors can collect from any proceeds she gains from a lawsuit she filed last year against her former bankruptcy attorney, James Kridel.

Giudice was not at the hearing.

The judge also appointed a trustee, John Sywilok, who will determine whether all of Giudice’s creditors have been satisfied.  "She has made allegations that creditors have been satisfied," Sywilok told ABC News. "I have to look into that."

Giudice has written a book and appeared on television since her December release, but any income from those activities is considered post-petition funds and not part of any bankruptcy proceeding.

The only way unsatisfied creditors could collect is if Giudice's malpractice case against her bankruptcy attorney moves forward.

"Assuming a jury determines the attorney charged with illegal malpractice that he did it then the creditors could collect," Sywilok said.

The judge will review the case again in 90 days.

Matt Jelonek/WireImage(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Gawker lost its bid Wednesday to get a new trial in its legal battle with former wrestler Hulk Hogan.

Hogan had sued for invasion of privacy and won $140 million in damages from the case back in March.

During the trial, Gawker's legal team claimed publishing the Hogan video, which featured him having sex with Heather Clem, the former wife of Hogan's estranged best friend Todd Clem, was protected by the First Amendment, especially with Hogan being a celebrity. Furthermore, Gawker’s lawyer, Michael Berry, claimed Hogan filed his lawsuit just to get “lots and lots of money.”

But Hogan's legal team noted Wednesday that the court has sided with Hogan yet again in a St. Petersburg, Florida, courtroom.

"The court today denied Gawker's request for a new trial and to reduce damages. Plaintiff Bollea believes rightfully so," Hogan's legal team said in a statement after the request was denied, referring to Hogan's birth name, Terry Gene Bollea.

"Gawker has failed and continues to fail in recognizing their obligation to Bollea for their reprehensible behavior and method of doing what they call journalism. Their refusal to accept responsibility for their conduct and denial of the obvious continues to drive their litigation strategy," Hogan's legal team added.

Hogan received the $140 million verdict earlier this year, when a jury in Florida awarded $55 million in economic damages and $60 million for emotional distress. An extra $25 million was added on for punitive damages.

During the trial, Hogan said he had no knowledge that his encounter with Clem was being filmed, and thus was a protected private moment. When the tape was released and published on Gawker, Hogan told the court, "My whole world went upside down."

Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Aniston is mourning the loss of her mother, Nancy Dow.

The actress told People magazine in a statement that Dow died "after enduring a long illness." She was 79.

"It is with great sadness that my brother John and I announce the passing of our mother Nancy Dow. She was 79 years old and passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends," Aniston's statement read. "We ask that our family’s privacy be respected as we grieve our loss."

Dow, an actress and model, was married twice -- first to Jack Melick, with whom she had a son, and then to Aniston's father, John Aniston. They divorced when the actress was a child.

Aniston, 47, opened up a bit about her relationship with her mother last year in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Explaining that at one point, Dow "was very critical of me," Aniston admitted that they did not always enjoy the easiest relationship.

But more recently, she added, "We're all fine."

Michael Kovac/Getty Images for Art of Elysium(LOS ANGELES) -- Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's marriage is reportedly over.

The actress filed for divorce earlier this week, TMZ reports.

Depp, 52, and Heard, 30, first met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and married in February 2015. Almost immediately, the couple was dogged by tabloid rumors that their relationship was on the skids. Heard, however, shot down such reports last December.

"I try not to react to the horrible misrepresentation of our lives," she told Marie Claire, "but it is strange, and hard."

Still, there were aspects of the marriage that made her uncomfortable. Last June, Heard admitted to Elle that she was afraid that Depp's fame would make it tougher for her to lead a private life. Her independence, she said, was important to her.

"I never want for my life to lose the ability to transverse the world, with freedom and ease. The freedom and ease I have worked so hard to acquire for myself,” she said.

Depp and Heard made waves earlier this year with their now-infamous apology video regarding her causing an international incident when they sneaked her tiny Yorkshire Terriers into Australia.

This was the first marriage for both actors, though Depp was previously in a long-term relationship with French actress Vanessa Paradis. They have two children together, Lily-Rose, 16, and Jack, 14.
