"Nobody did anything wrong ... please, give more credit to these human beings"

Jennifer Aniston says no one was at fault in her divorce with Brad Pitt, and his getting together with Angelina Jolie.

“We’re not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen],” she said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

“If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bullshit. There’s no story. I mean, at this point it’s starting to become — please, give more credit to these human beings.”

Golden Globe–winning Aniston is now engaged to 43-year-old Wanderlust co-star Justin Theroux.

It's "painful" to watch Cosby "go through this"

The actor who played Bill Cosby’s son on The Cosby Show has spoken up amid the controversy surrounding sexual-assault allegations against the comedian.

Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who played Theo on the hit sitcom, said in an interview with Billboard that it was “painful” to watch what’s happening to his former TV father.

“He’s one of my mentors, and he’s been very influential and played a big role in my life as a friend and mentor,” Warner said. “Just as it’s painful to hear any woman talk about sexual assault, whether true or not, it’s just as painful to watch my friend and mentor go through this.”

Warner is the most recent Cosby Show cast member to speak out amid the dozens of assault allegations against Cosby. So far, more than 15 women have accused the comedian of drugging or sexually assaulting them. In early January, Phylicia Rashad, who played Cosby’s wife, defend him against the accusations.

While Warner said he couldn’t speak on the allegations, he also said: “The Bill Cosby I know has been great to me and great for a lot of people.”

Country Stars Slam American Sniper Critics

Blake Shelton, Charlie Daniels and Craig Morgan took to social media to defend the film

Country music artists are notoriously patriotic, so it should come as no surprise that they don’t take kindly to insults to the military. Just ask Blake Shelton, Craig Morgan and Charlie Daniels.

After actor Seth Rogen compared the film American Sniper – which tells the story of Chris Kyle, widely regarded as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history, to a scene in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds where a German sniper kills allied soldiers – Morgan, a 10-year Army veteran, lashed out.

“This is in response to the comments made by Seth Rogen in a recent tweet. I am sure he doesn’t care and normally I don’t comment on such statements however, this time I am,” Morgan wrote on Facebook. “Seth Rogen you don’t know me nor did you know Chris Kyle (who was a Great American). I would be interested to know if you have a relationship with any American who served honorably in its military … You are fortunate to enjoy the privilege and freedom of working in and living in the United States, and saying whatever you want (regardless of how ignorant the statement) thanks to people like Chris Kyle who serve in the United States military. Your statement is inaccurate and insensitive to Chris and his family.”

Rogen later clarified his remarks, posting, “I wasn’t comparing the two. Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can’t compare them, though. I just said something ‘kinda reminded’ me of something else. I actually liked American Sniper. It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene.”

And after director Michael Moore stated that snipers were cowards on his Twitter feed, Daniels responded by Tweeting a photo of himself performing for the troops along with the message, “Hey Michael Moore These are the guys who defend the right for you to say the stupid things U say U might say thanks.”

Meanwhile, Shelton weighed in with his thoughts on the negativity surrounding American Sniper. “Sickens me to see celebrities or anybody slam the very people who protect their right to talk s—. #truecowards,” tweeted Shelton.

Former Tonight Show host opens up about Cosby allegations

Jay Leno made his stance on the sexual assault allegations against fellow comedian Bill Cosby pretty clear on Wednesday.

“I don’t know why it’s so hard to believe women,” the former Tonight Show host said at the annual NATPE conference in Miami, Variety reports. “You to go Saudi Arabia and you need two women to testify against a man. Here you need 25.”

Leno then remarked about how the most recent accusations against Cosby began getting traction after a video of comedian Hannibal Buress calling Cosby a rapist during a standup routine went viral. “On any other media that would have been edited,” he said. “People are getting news unfiltered now.”

Cosby’s legal team has repeatedly denied allegations from more than 15 women that the former Cosby Show star, 77, drugged or sexually assaulted them. He has not been charged with a crime related to any of the accusations.

Maybe Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy can be friends after all.

Tom Felton, the actor who played Harry’s rival Draco in the Harry Potter films and embodied all that was evil about Slytherin, finally joined J.K. Rowling’s Pottermore website Wednesday. The site sorts users into one of the four Hogwarts houses, and Felton was disappointed by his results.

The Gunmaker That Supplied Liam Neeson for Taken 3 Is Now Boycotting Him

The actor said the U.S. has "too many" guns

The firearms maker that provided guns for Liam Neeson’s movie Taken 3 says it’s cutting ties with the series and the actor following his recent comments about guns.

While talking last week about the Paris terrorist attacks, Neeson told Dubai’s Gulf News it’s a “disgrace” that there are “too many” privately owned guns in the United States. “Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools,'” he said.

PARA USA now says it “regrets” working with Neeson and providing firearms for the movie.

“Comments made by [Taken 3‘s] Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties, the company wrote on its Facebook page last week. “We will no longer provide firearms for use in films starring Liam Neeson and ask that our friends and partners in Hollywood refrain from associating our brand and products with his projects.”

Vonn Backs Tiger Woods’ Account of Missing Tooth

Vonn says cameraman accidentally knocked into Woods

(CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy) — World Cup ski champion Lindsey Vonn is backing boyfriend Tiger Woods’ account of how he lost a front tooth.

One day after winning her record 63rd World Cup race, Vonn posted to her Facebook account Tuesday that she was happy Woods surprised her by coming to the race, and that she felt “terrible that his tooth got knocked out.”

“When he was in the finish area a cameraman accidentally knocked into him and took out his front tooth,” Vonn wrote. “He was still in great spirits though and didn’t complain once or ask for any special assistance or security. We were both just happy to share the moment together.”

Woods missing a tooth created a sensation Monday after the race.

Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent at Excel Sports Management, said in an email that during a crush of photographers at the awards podium, “a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth. Woods’ tooth was knocked out by the incident.”

It wasn’t clear if Vonn saw Woods collide with the camera.

Woods first showed up in the athletes’ area when Vonn’s father, Alan Kildow, escorted him in shortly after Vonn took the lead. The golfer then surprised Vonn and gave the skier an emotional hug.

After about 10 to 15 minutes of standing near Vonn with her family, Woods was escorted into a white tent usually reserved for measuring skis. He stayed there for nearly an hour, while the last lower-ranked skiers came down and during the podium celebration.

After the podium celebration, Woods was escorted by police to a waiting snowmobile and taken away.

Race organizers told The Associated Press they were not aware of the incident and that Woods requested extra security and a snowmobile to exit the finish area.

“I was among those who escorted him from the tent to the snowmobile and there was no such incident,” Nicola Colli, the secretary general of the race organizing committee, told The Associated Press. “When he arrived he asked for more security and we rounded up police to look after both him and Lindsey.”

Woods had been wearing a scarf with a skeleton pattern over the lower part of his face, sunglasses and a stocking cap.

The photo was taken when the scarf was lowered.

Steinberg, through a spokesman, said there would be nothing to add Tuesday.

Woods makes his 2015 debut next week in Phoenix.

Katy Perry Admits She’s Nervous to Perform at the Super Bowl

"Honestly? I feel like I've outdreamt my dream"

Katy Perry is definitely bracing for some game day nerves.

In an interview for ESPN The Magazine‘s music issue, the pop star said even she has some jitters about headlining the Super Bowl half-time stage on Feb. 1.

“Honestly? I feel like I’ve outdreamt my dream,” she said. “I don’t get nervous about much, but I’ll definitely be a little tingly inside that day.”

Perry shares the cover with Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who seems a little jealous she gets to take the field.

“She’s playing in a bigger game than I’ve ever gotten to play in,” the footballer said. “I’m hoping to someday be in those shoes.”

We can’t blame the pop queen for being a little nervous. Last year, Bruno Marstook center stage in front of 115 million viewers during the half-time gig.

If the tingle gets a little too intense, Perry can always turn to veteran rocker Lenny Kravitz, who will be joining her onstage, for advice.

Fellow songstress Idina Menzel may also be battling butterflies before kick-off, as the Frozen star will be performing the National Anthem.

Tune in to Super Bowl XLIX at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 1, on NBC.
