    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    The mother of six spent her Saturday night at the Kids' Choice Awards at the Forum in Los Angeles with her daughters Zahara, 10, and Shiloh, 8, in tow. Jolie was nominated for Favorite Movie Actress as well as Favorite Villain (for her work in Maleficent ). Though her youngest daughter, Vivienne, acted opposite her mother as the young Aurora in the Disney flick, she didn't get to take part in the festivities. For what it'sworth, though, Shiloh and Zahara didn't seem all that concerned that their little sister wasn't there.

    Dressed casually for the event, Zahara and Shiloh were all smiles during the show. For her part, Angelina also appeared to be having a wonderful time, though she opted for a slinky black dress and sky-high stilettos — not that we'd expect anything less.

     

  • 4 Celebrities Besides Jon Hamm Who Secretly Went to Rehab… and 1 Who Sent Out a Press Release

    Still, Hamm is hardly the first Hollywood name to attend rehab without the paparazzi trailing behind. Several celebrities have sought help for a variety of reasons without tipping off the press until they were ready.  

    Selena Gomez: Exhaustion

    In February 2014, Selena Gomez confirmed she had completed a two-week stint in rehab the month before for what was described as "exhaustion." Though Gomez kept her stay at the Arizona facility under wraps until after she had been out for a few weeks, there were signs of trouble in December 2013 when she suddenly canceled the Australian leg of her Stars Dance Tour.

    "It has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be," the "Come and Get It" singer said in a statement at the time.

    Zac Efron: Alcohol

    Philip Seymour Hoffman: Heroin/Painkillers

  • Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton's Wedding Photos Finally Surface: She Wore Jeans!

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 9 days ago

    What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas is bound to resurface later — especially if you're one of the most famous movie stars on the planet. It was May 5, 2000, when Angelina Jolie flitted off to that famed Nevada city to marry Billy Bob Thornton, but snapshots from their wedding have just surfaced for the first time now. (You can thank the minister who performed the ceremony for the trip down memory lane.)

    Just to refresh, 15 years ago, Jolie was still more of a wild child than a maternal goddess, which might explain her ultra-relaxed garb for the big event. Clad in baggy jeans, a sleeveless gray tank, and… umm… are those clogs?!, the actress completed her wedding day style with a bare face and her signature dark locks tied back in a ponytail. Her groom was equally casual, sporting a printed shirt and a trucker hat.

    The Reverend Jim Hamilton remembered his surprise when the Hollywood couple strolled into the Little Church of the West on a Friday afternoon.

    So, once the small talk was out of the way, what was the actual ceremony like?

  • Are Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx Dating? A Look at Their Romantic Evolution

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 11 days ago

    Dating someone without having the whole world know is hard enough for us regular folk, but when you're a famous actress — and one of Tom Cruise's ex-wives — the task sounds insurmountable. Enter Katie Holmes, who it seems has succeeded (for the most part) in keeping her relationship with Jamie Foxx relatively under wraps for the last two years… but it looks like that ship has finally sailed.

    With numerous outlets reporting that the pair is an item — as well as a photo taken in Feburary of this year showing them holding hands and playing footsie — it's getting harder and harder for the stars to skirt the rumors. "Jamie is someone she can trust and have fun with," a mutual friend of the couple reportedly told Us Weekly . "She's getting everything from Jamie that she didn't get with Tom." The mag also added that, according to another insider, Jamie even refers to Katie using the term of endearment "my girl" — as in, "My girl is calling."

    August 2013: Jamie and Katie dance, drink, and flirt at a benefit in the Hamptons.

    January 2014: Katie reportedly flew to California to stay at Foxx's home.

  • What We Learned From Nick Gordon's 'Dr. Phil' Interview-Turned-Intervention

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 18 days ago

    Packed in between Gordon's claims that he made Dr. Phil "more famous" and his insistence that they film his tattoos (and not his face), however, were real revelations and admissions. Here are eight things we learned from the showdown between the doc/TV personality and his latest celebrity patient.

    1. Nick Gordon really doesn't want America to see him crying on TV. 

    "Please don't put this on TV: me crying, me being weak," Gordon, 22, begged Dr. Phil as the host led him back to the set where Gordon's mother was waiting. "Mommy, mommy, oh my gosh. I'm so sorry for everything," he said, burying his head in his mother's neck. Though she was able to get him onto the couch, he couldn't seem to shake his concern over being so emotional in front of the cameras. "I'm going to seem so weak in front of the world," he later reiterated.

    2. Nick stands by his story that he didn't harm Bobbi Kristina.

    3. Nick admits that he's taking Xanax and drinking a lot of alcohol.

    "No, you're drunk and you're on drugs," the host asserted.

    "Deep breath," his mother cooed, rubbing his back.

  • Everything That's Wrong With Bill Cosby's Video Message to Fans

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 18 days ago

    What's wrong with Bill Cosby's recent attempt to reach out to the public? The short answer is a lot. Over the last several weeks, the comedy icon has released several written statements to fans marked with the hashtag #farfromfinished, but on Monday, he posted his first video message since the barrage of sexual assault allegations hit.

    Clad in fuchsia pajamas and perched on a vintage lounge chair, Cosby talks into a rotary phone in the clip. "Yes! I'm going to be in Wheeling, West Virgina, Capitol Music Hall, 8 o'clock show; that's right!" he chirps into the phone. "You know I'll be hilarious. Can't wait." He accompanied this video with a short written statement: "Dear fans: I hope you enjoy my wonderful video message that's filled with LAUGHTER. Hey, Hey, Hey! I'm far from finished."

  • A Complete Guide to the People Circling Bobbi Kristina Brown

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 19 days ago

    Five weeks after being found unresponsive, face-down in a bathtub, Bobbi Kristina Brown continues fighting for her life. But while her future remains uncertain, one thing has become clear: There are a lot of people circling Whitney Houston's only child (who also happens to be the late icon's only heir).

    As time ticks on, it seems that more and more friends and family have come to Bobbi Kristina's side. There are the obvious names, like her father, but there are less likely folks too, like entertainment mogul Tyler Perry. At this point, there are so many names popping up in the press that it's become a challenge to keep them all straight, which is why we've put together this complete guide to the roster so that you don't have to.

    Police will not confirm if Gordon was directly under investigation.

  • 'Dr. Phil' Clip Shows Nick Gordon's Intervention Amid Claims He's Being Investigated for Murder

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 20 days ago

    Things have not been going well for Nick Gordon — and they may have just gone from bad to worse. Ever since Bobbi Kristina Brown was discovered facedown in a bathtub on Jan. 31, her boyfriend has been in a very public feud with many members of her family, including her father Bobby Brown. Now, in an assumed effort to clear the record, Nick (and his mother) sat down with TV therapist Dr. Phil, but if the preview clips are any indication, the interview turned into an intervention.

    "I miss Krissy and Whitney so much," Nick cries, his face buried in his hands, as his mother rubs his back. Nick then looks up at the host and adds, "I hate Bobby Brown."

    For his part, Dr. Phil seems unfazed by the tears. "You've been drinking a lot though, right?" he asks before making his intentions clear. "I want you to go straight to rehab." He also makes a prediction to Gordon's mother in true Dr. Phil fashion: "Your son, left to his own devices, will be dead inside a week."

  • Harrison Ford's Turbulent History of Flying

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 23 days ago

    On Thursday, Harrison Ford crashed his World War II-era Ryan Aeronautical ST3KR at the Penmar Golf Course near the Santa Monica Municipal Airport. Though his publicist admitted that the star was "banged-up" and still hospitalized receiving medical treatment, she was made sure to note that he is "expected to make a full recovery." But this is hardly the first time the icon (who recently suffered a broken leg due to an accident with the Millennium Falcon on the set of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ) ran into trouble in the skies. In fact, it marks the third major crash for the 72-year-old flying enthusiast.

    Ford's first major accidentoccurred in 1999 in Santa Clarita, California. The star was practicing auto-rotations during a routine training flight in a Bell 206 helicopter when he crash-landed. Ford and his flying instructor both walked away from the accident unharmed, but the chopper was badly damaged.

  • Leonard Nimoy's Other Legacy: His Photography and the Controversy It Caused

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 26 days ago

    Though he was best known as the hyper-rational Spock, Leonard Nimoy, who died of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease last week at 83, enjoyed a thriving second act outside of Hollywood. Specifically, the Star Trek icon became a notable photographer, producing several collections of provocative images that highlighted subjects who are often marginalized by society due to characteristics such as weight, sexuality, and religion. Not surprisingly, Nimoy's exploration of that last subject sparked controversy — controversy that did not go unremarked when he died.

    Titled Shekhina , it consisted of (semi) erotic photos of Jewish women in various states of undress, partially clad in male religious garb. The pictures proved to be polarizing even within the Jewish community that Nimoy loved so much. While some took issue with the women being naked or depicted in men's clothing (or both), others praised Nimoy's creative vision.
