Claudette Barius/Warner Bros.(NEW YORK) -- When Kevin Connolly reprises his role as Eric Murphy in the film adaptation of the former HBO series, Entourage, he'll be showing a lot of skin.

To prepare for the film, the actor said on Wednesday's Live with Kelly and Michael that he "basically didn't eat for three days was the way to go. ...I was like, starving and like doing my best to work out but I didn't have any energy. It was...hard! It's uncomfortable, you know?"

What made it especially uncomfortable for Connolly was the fact that one of his favorite movie stars was also on set that day.

"I'm in, like, a pink bathrobe or something and on that day Liam Neeson was working," he said. "Like, Liam Neeson, our Irish hero, of course, my idol. He walks in and I'm in a pink bathrobe getting body makeup. And I'm like, 'How you doing? Nice to meet you. I'm Kevin.' He's like 'Yes, you are!'" 

Connolly continued: "He's like, 'What are you doing over there?' I'm like, 'Well, you know, I'm getting ready to this scene. I'm dieting. I'm getting body makeup.' And he's like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah, but you gotta do it. You're gonna be looking at this for the rest of your life.'"

Neeson is among the stars, including Pharrell Williams, Ed O'Neill, Kelsey Grammer and Andrew Dice Clay, making cameos in the film.

Entourage, also starring Adrian Grenier as Vincent Chase, Kevin Dillon as Johnny "Drama" Chase, Jerry Ferrara as Turtle, and Jeremy Piven as agent Ari Gold, hits theaters June 3.

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) -- Britt Nilsson was sent home last week on The Bachelorette, but this week she's sharing photos proving that she's still happily with Brady Toops.

The two met on this season of the ABC competition, which was different than past seasons because two bachelorettes, Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe, met 25 men, who were asked to vote for the woman they wanted to see remain on the show. When Nilsson was eliminated, Toops told Bristowe that his heart belonged to Nilsson, and that he was removing himself from the competition.

Toops' stunt worked, and the two reportedly began dating shortly after.  The proof? Nilsson shared a photo Tuesday on Instagram of the two hiking. The caption reads, "Mean muggin @bradytoops."

Toops, who shared the same photo, captioned his, "So maybe I hike in 'skinny jeans', but my hiking partner is prettier than yours, and she'll take you out. Nah just kidding, she's too sweet for that.. #hollywood."

Toops also posted a series of photos of the couple, including one where Nilsson plants a kiss on Toops' cheek.

Behind the scenes from Episode 3 of "The Bachelorette".. the beauty herself, miss @brittkarolina y'all!

Another photo of the two gazing out at a sunset while stuck in an embrace is paired with a quote by author C. JoyBell C.: "Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under." 

The Bachelorette, with Bristowe looking for love, returns Monday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.

Universal(NEW YORK) -- The last time we saw Jason Statham onscreen, he was playing the bad guy in Furious 7. But in his latest film, Spy, where he stars opposite Melissa McCarthy, the British actor gets funny.

Statham -- who's best-known as an action star in movies like The Transporter and The Expendables -- admits in the June issue of Esquire that previously, he hesitated to take on comedy roles.

"I've always been apprehensive about trying to do a f***ing comedy, because they're either brilliant or they're f***ing terrible," he explains. "At least in making an action film, there's always going to be someone who wants to see a car chase. Even if a lot of the people don't like it, there will be a lot of people that do. But bad comedy is just garbage."

But Statham says Spy "works, and I give a lot of the credit -- or all of the  f***ing credit -- to [writer] Paul [Feig] and the writing."

If you're surprised to see Statham back on the big screen so soon after starring in Furious 7, which is still playing, the actor says he's just getting the work while he can.

"It's that peasant mentality," he said. "Make hay while the sun shines. When you're kicking around and you ain't got no money, that don't feel too good. So when there's finally money coming in, it's hard to say, 'I'm too good for that.' It's finding a balance, really, and it's a difficult thing to manage. But have I taken on too many jobs? Probably." 

Has that philosophy ever prompted Statham to do a movie he now regrets?  "Yeah, I think I've said that more often than not. Yeah."

Spy, also starring Rose Byrne, Jude Law and Allison Janney, hits theaters June 5.

Charley Gallay/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Actress Tatum O'Neal was once married to tennis star John McEnroe, but now she's looking for love in different places.

"I like women," O'Neal tells People magazine. "I definitely have been dating mostly women recently." 

"I think women are the most amazing creatures on earth," she continues. "They're gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I've met recently. I don't have a steady right now, but I look forward to it." 

In describing her sexuality, O'Neal said: "I'm not one or the other." 

O'Neal and McEnroe split in 1992 after six years of marriage and three children: Kevin, 29, Sean, 28 and Emily, 24. 

O'Neal, who has long struggled with substance addiction, says she's still clean. "I'm the most content I've ever been," she says. "I'm the proudest mother in the history of the world."

Jasin Boland/Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Dwayne Johnson arrived on a fire engine with a rescue helicopter overhead at Tuesday night’s Los Angeles premiere of the earthquake disaster flick San Andreas

Johnson plays a Los Angeles Fire Department rescue helicopter pilot searching for his estranged daughter after an earthquake hits California.  But say he was in an actual earthquake -- what would he grab before running out the door?

“I would grab by water, my phone and my fanny pack,” Johnson said. 

No doubt he'd use the phone to take some photos -- While at the London premiere of San Andreas last Thursday, the 43-year-old wrestler-turned-actor succeeded in setting the Guinness World Record for taking the most selfies in under three minutes, with 105.

Co-star Carla Gugino, also at the premiere, had a similar answer: “I’d have to go with flashlights, water, and my dog.”

Actually, they’re both wrong, at least partly.  USGS seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones says you shouldn’t run during an earthquake, but rather “Drop, cover, hold on.  The Caltech seismologist in the movie even orders somebody out of the doorway and under the table, and that’s the right thing to do.” 

San Andreas, also starring Paul Giamatti, Archie Panjabi and Kylie Minogue, opens nationally this Friday.

Eric Liebowitz/NBC(NEW YORK) -- America’s Got Talent returned for its landmark 10th season on Tuesday, beginning their search for the country's best talent in New Jersey.

Tuesday's showcase included a hypnotist who got judge Howie Mandel, who suffers from obsessive-compulsive disorder, to temporarily get over his phobia, and a stuttering stand-up comic.

Mandel was back behind the judges' table along with Howard Stern, Heidi Klum and Mel B to offer their opinions and decide which acts would advance. Also back for season 10 was “The Golden Buzzer,” which gives each judge one opportunity to send an act straight to the live show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

Earlier in the evening, former AGT judge Piers Morgan revealed he would be appearing on the show later this season. “BREAKING NEWS: America's Got Talent returns for Season 10 tonight...and I return to the judges' desk later this summer,” Morgan announced via Twitter.

Here’s a rundown of some of Tuesday’s highlights:

Dancing duo Elin, 7, and Noah, 8, showed off their hip-hop moves to M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This.” Howard and Mel thought the act was “cute.” Heidi added “adorable” to the list of comments. When Howie asked if the duo did anything beyond dancing, Noah replied, “Golf.” Mandel, known for his obsessive-compulsive disorder, also noted “U Can’t Touch This” is his “philosophy.” The judges all voted “yes,” moving them on to the next round.

Benton, Arkansas, natives Will Richey, Caleb Conrad and Tyler Davis -- sporting a crutch -- make up Triple Threat, who met when all three were injured on the high school football team at the same time. Their performance of MTKO’s “Classic” had Mandel noting, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” He went on to call them “a real boy band.” Klum declared they “sing beautifully.” Stern called them “beautifully nerdy.” All four judges voted “yes” to advance them to the next round.

A nerdy puppet named Ira Fenelbaum, who purportedly lives with his mother, Miriam -- also a puppet, not onstage for the act, but shown backstage with host Nick Cannon -- sang Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful,” dedicating it to Mel B. Howie was moved by the performance and voted “yes” to move the act forward. Howard noted the act provides them with “something we love -- romance” and also voted “yes.” Heidi, jealous of the attention Ira paid to Mel, admitted she was a little jealous, but voted “yes” anyway. Surprisingly, Mel B, the object of Ira’s desire, voted “no.” However, with three out of four saying "yes,” the act moved on to the next round.

Hypnotist Chris Jones performed his magic on Mandel -- and an audience member, who also appeared to go under. Jones convinced Howie that he was wearing gloves and got the comedian -- whose O.C.D. prevents him from engaging in physical contact with people -- to shake his hand. Chris then got Mandel to shake Mel B, Heidi and Howard’s hands. Stern, who had originally pressed his buzzer, changed his mind and voted “yes.” Mel B and Heidi added two more. Howie, under hypnosis during the segment, said he didn’t know. Jones moved on to the next round.

Four gymnasts from Germany and the Czech Republic, who call themselves Showproject, performed shirtless a series of flips and balanced on several sets of parallel bars. Mel called the act “spectacular," noting the guys put on a show. Stern declared them “ready for primetime.” All four judges voted “yes,” and the act advanced to the next round.

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Johnny Shelton performed an original song called “That’s Love,” which he wrote for his son, whom he’d lost to lymph node cancer. Howie noted the song was “moving” and “tugged at his heart.” Heidi said it made her “very emotional.” Mel B thought Shelton had “something special,” pointing out that during the performance she could “hear a pin drop.” Howard called Johnny “a real artist,” adding he was a great songwriter and had an exceptional sound. The judges yelled “yes” in unison, moving the singer to the next round.

Piff the Magic Dragon, a 34-year-old who mixed magic and comedy, had the judges thoroughly entertained. He brought Heidi onstage and had her mark one card from a full deck. Rather than pull out a card that matched hers, Piff pulled out a different card, then changed hers to match his. Howie, who was on his feet after the trick, noted the magician was “hysterical.” Mel B loved his “silly, stupid, ridiculous sense of humor.” Klum gave him a “thumbs up.” Stern called him a “phenomenal act” that would go very far in the competition. Piff received four “yes” votes and moved on to the next round.

Siro-A was a team that mixed precision dancing with high-tech graphics. Stern noted the routine was “seamless.” Mel B. called it “big and exciting.” Mandel declared them an act people will be talking about tomorrow. They received a unanimous “yes” from the judges and moved on to the next round.

The final act of the night, stuttering comedian Drew Lynch, 24, was left with a speech impediment after suffering vocal trauma as a result of getting hit in the throat with a softball four years earlier. His act included bits about working at a fast-food drive-through and as the voice for a GPS. Howard applauded the hopeful. Howie was so moved by the act that he used his “Golden Buzzer,” advancing the young comic straight to the live shows at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall.

Some acts that didn’t make the cut included a family of parents and two children who performed “The Humongous Whoopie Cushion of Doom,” which featured one of the kids jumping off a ladder onto a giant whoopee cushion; a knife thrower who failed to get one knife to land in the board behind his assistant; and a dancer dressed as a creepy looking baby.

America’s Got Talent airs again next Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.

Eric McCandless/CBS(NEW YORK) -- Forbes has announced its list of the World’s Most Powerful Women of 2015, and Beyonce was named one of the most powerful women in entertainment.

Queen Bey ranks number 21 on the overall tally of 100 and she second among other women in the entertainment industry who made the list, behind Oprah Winfrey.  Other celebs on the list include Angelina Jolie, Taylor Swift and Ellen DeGeneres.

The publication based the tally on of each woman’s influence and relevance, and ranked them by money and media momentum. The 11 women in entertainment on the list are "all at the top of their game and are committed to inspiring change." In total, they have a combined social media imprint exceeding six billion followers and fans.

Last year, Beyonce ranked 17th on the annual list, with the publication citing her performance at the Super Bowl in February 2013; the surprise release of her visual, self-titled album last December; and her successful Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Peter Kramer/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Congratulations may be in order for Keira Knightley, who was expecting her first child with husband James Righton. 

According to Us Weekly, the two have welcomed their bundle of joy. There's no word on when the baby was born, the gender of the newborn or the name.

Knightley barely even announced her pregnancy. Instead, the news became obvious as the Imitation Game star continued to walk red carpets. The actress told E! News earlier this year, "[My] waist has disappeared! [But] for a very good reason."

Knightley married Klaxons band member Righton in 2013.

Gareth Cattermole/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who has struggled with alcohol addiction in the past, has issued an apology after he was photographed earlier this month in London with what appeared to be a vodka bottle in his hand.

In a message posted on his fiancée Mara Lane's Instagram account, the Dracula star said, "Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time. I apologize for having a minor relapse and hope that people don't think too badly of me."

He noted that he stopped drinking immediately, and that his absence from the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his new film, Damascus Cover, was not a reflection of what he thinks of the project.

"I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friends and had not changed I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I'm living a healthy life," Meyers said.

The 37-year-old Irish actor has been in rehab multiple times for addiction.

ABC/Randy Holmes(SYDNEY) -- Although Johnny Depp's two dogs are out of Australia, the Pirates of the Caribbean star could be facing jail time and a large fine. 

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, an Australian Senate committee on Monday said that if the incident is brought to trial, and Depp is found guilty, the actor will face up to 10 years in jail and a maximum fine of $265,000 for bringing the Yorkshire Terriers, named Boo and Pistol, Down Under.

Officials are still trying to determine how the dogs entered the country and sidestepped a customs checkpoint. The Department of Agriculture said Tuesday the pups weren't claimed on arrivals slips, which are mandatory whether one is flying commercial or on a private aircraft.

The tiny canines first caused a stink -- or rather, their owner did -- when Depp brought the dogs with him when he and his wife, Amber Heard, flew to Australia on a private jet last month, so Depp could continue filming the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. 

Depp is reprising his role of Jack Sparrow in the sequel,  Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which is scheduled to be released by Disney July 7, 2017.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.

David Welker/TLC(NEW YORK) -- A handful of sponsors confirmed Tuesday they are no longer advertising with 19 Kids and Counting, after Josh Duggar last week responded to reports that he inappropriately touched minors several years ago.

A spokesperson for Payless ShoeSource told ABC News, “Payless' ads ran during this show as part of a larger buy with TLC. We are taking steps to have them removed from future episodes.”

Choice Hotels and Walgreens similarly confirmed that they are no longer advertising with the show.

Last week, In Touch magazine reported that Duggar was investigated in 2006 for alleged misconduct starting when he was 14 years old.

He responded to the report in a statement provided to People magazine and later posted to Facebook, admitting, "Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. ...I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged."

On Friday, TLC announced it was pulling all episodes of 19 Kids and Counting from the air. It's unclear when or if the show will return.

Charles Sykes/Bravo(LOS ANGELES) -- Although they are divorced, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are still dedicated to raising their two children together.

The pair, along with their kids, attended a party in honor of Memorial Day on Monday at producer Joel Silver's house in Malibu, reports People magazine.

"Gwyneth and Chris arrived separately," a source told the magazine. "At the party, they were friendly, hung out with their kids and also mingled. Guests were treated to a barbecue and all seemed to enjoy the party."

Other celebrities attending the holiday party included Kate Hudson, Courteney Cox with fiancé Johnny McDaid, Tobey Maguire, Minnie Driver, Kate Beckinsale, Diane Kruger, January Jones and Bella Thorne. 

Paltrow and Martin, who reached a settlement on their divorce in April, have spent other holidays together since the two split in March 2014 after 10 years of marriage. The pair reportedly also celebrated Mother's Day together.

Craig Blankenhorn/HBO(NEW YORK) -- Lena Dunham celebrated a different kind of freedom on Memorial Day -- by posting a photo of herself in her lingerie.

"Love my @lonelylingerie and I think I will wear it to dinner with some boots & a smile because we are all very lucky to be free," she joked on Instagram.

 

 

Though the Girls creator and star tries to promote positive images of bodies, she has admitted to her own personal struggles.

"I spend a lot of my career trying to break down the negative forces that the media exerts on women in trying to control their body image, so for me it’s all very sort of anathema to who I am to admit that I too have struggled with the concept of perfection," Dunham said on ABC's Good Morning America last fall.

For their Memorial Day dinner, Dunham's boyfriend, fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff, appeared more covered up. Dunham posted a snap of the musician wearing black pants and a shirt with a maroon blazer and gold medal. She captioned it, "Holiday Swagger."

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(NEW YORK) -- Matthew McConaughey has his own clothing line, dubbed Just Keep Livin'. But don't worry, the Oscar-winner isn't trading in time in front of the camera for time behind a sewing machine.

"I don't think I'm becoming [a designer.] I'm just putting a lot of cool stuff that I have heard along the way on a t-shirt," he said on Tuesday's Good Morning America.

McConaughey's t-shirt designs were inspired by many things. His "Alright, Alright, Alright" tee was inspired by his first movie in 1993, the cult comedy Dazed and Confused, which gave rise to what's since become his catchphrase.  Other shirts, such as "Leave It Like You Found It," were inspired by his off-screen life.

"'Leave It Like You Found It' -- that came from a guy I went to college with. He borrowed a lawn mower one time. He cleaned it, returned it with gas. And I was like [wow]...He was like, 'Hey man, leave it like you found it. Or a little better.'"

A portion of the proceeds from sales of McConaughy's Just Keep Livin' clothing line will benefit his 's non-profit organization of the same name, which creates and supports after-school fitness and wellness programs in areas of need. 

McConaughey's mother, Mary Kathlene McCabe, joined her son at the launch.  Instead of talking clothes, however, she explained how she named her son.

"We were in the hospital and my husband and I could not agree on a name. And I said, 'I'll tell you what we're going to do. We're gonna go to the Bible.' And so we go to the New Testament, open it up, boom, there's Matthew, right there it was in front of me."

"So I said, 'Okay, we're going to name him Matthew.' And that means gift of God. So he was a gift because I wasn't supposed to have any more children," she continued.

McConaughey is the youngest of two siblings, Pat and Rooster.

Warner Bros.(NEW YORK) -- Kevin Dillon is back as the unlucky older brother, Johnny "Drama" Chase, in the film adaptation of the former HBO series Entourage. So what is Drama up to this time around?

"I just finished up a movie that my brother directed. Vincent Chase directs me in a movie. And you know, I think I did maybe the best work I've ever done in my career," Dillon explained on Tuesday's Live with Kelly and Michael. "Johnny Drama feels like he's taking his acting to the next level. Unfortunately, the uppers don't agree with that and they want to cut me out of the movie so that's where we're at."

Hard times are nothing new to Drama, who always finds himself playing second-fiddle to his younger, superstar brother, Vince, portrayed by Adrian Grenier. 

"It's tough to be Johnny Drama. He's always having a tough time with everything," Dillon said, before adding, "That's the greatest part about him too, is he just keeps getting back up. No matter what happens to him, he dusts himself off and keeps going. He will get down a little bit, but he keeps plugging along."

Entourage, also starring Kevin Connolly as E, Jerry Ferrara as Turtle and Jeremy Piven as agent Ari Gold, hits theaters June 3.
