  • How Director Kevin Smith Dropped 85 Pounds

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    Kevin Smith would never be asked to buy two seats on an airplane now.

    The director and podcaster, 44, has lost 85 pounds after being inspired by the 2014 documentary Fed Up, which ties the country's sugar addiction to the obesity epidemic. "Left: me & my kid in 2008. Right: 2 weeks ago, 85 pounds later. I shan't wear pants and will never abort the shorts," Smith captioned a before-and-after snapshot of his transformation.

    Smith initially lost 65 pounds after he was booted from a Southwest Airlines flight back in 2010 for his size. The crew told him that for the safety of all passengers, he needed to buy more than one seat. However, he appeared to have put some weight back on by 2013. He started losing again after changing his lifestyle last year.

    The Western Wall has Mariah Carey feeling emotions.

    The songstress and her billionaire boyfriend, James Packer, returned to solid ground to make a pilgrimage to the holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem. The visit was an emotional experience for the elusive chanteuse, who was photographed wiping away tears.

    Mariah also posted photos of her twins, Monroe and Moroccan, with her at the wall. They were tagged "#amazing" and "#love."

    After their tourist stop, the "Infinity" singer and her new beau enjoyed a VIP dining experience, breaking bread with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, at their residence. The politico detailed the visit — and confirmed that Carey and Packer were dating beyond the obvious PDA pics — on Facebook.

    The post concluded with, "Mariah, thank you for coming. It was a pleasure to host you."

  • Geez, Who Isn't Selena Gomez 'Dating' This Summer?

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 4 hrs ago

    According to the Internetz, Selena Gomez is having a summer of love.

    The "Good for You" singer whipped her fans into a frenzy on Monday when she posted a photo of herself on an ice cream date with a group of pals that included Cody Simpson.

    "These days are always the best days," the 22-year-old captioned the photo, which prompted comments from fans like, "CODY AND SELENA IN THE SAME PHOTO, I'M OFFICIALLY DEAD."

    Simpson is single (right, Gigi Hadid?) and has ties to Justin Bieber (they toured together), making for a perfect — in the dramatic sense — celebrity summer romance. Or maybe it was just ice cream, ya know?

    It seems that whoever Gomez is seen with, tweets or, @ tags is her new love interest. Let's look at some of the other fellas she's been linked to recently:

  • The Rock Opens Up About Longtime Girlfriend Lauren Hashian: 'You Gotta Get the Better Half in There'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    Increasingly, celebrities are drawing a hard line between their public and personal lives. But then again, the status quo has never worked for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, whose personality is only matched in size by his deltoids.

    In a new Esquire Q&A, the American treasure makes the rare move of opening up about his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, and straight up demands that writer Scott Raab include it in his piece.

    "I've lived with my longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, going on, like, eight, nine years now. She's a singer-songwriter," Johnson tells the magazine. "We spend a lot of time with my daughter in Florida, Simone, who's 13. We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn't mentioned and my daughter isn't mentioned. I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there."

    Asked whether he prefers movies over wrestling, the former WWE champion's answer may surprise you.

  • Apparently, Carrie Underwood Is 'Someone Famous'

    Breanne L. Heldman at Yahoo Celebrity 5 hrs ago

    THIS is "someone famous." You may have heard of her.

    Last we checked, she'd sold nearly 15 million albums and had seven Grammy Awards, 17 Billboard Music Awards, and 11 Academy of Country Music Awards to her name. Oh yeah, and she won Season 4 of American Idol .

    Also, she's this guy's wife.

    Carrie Underwood had a field day when a local TV station in Nashville reported that her husband, Nashville Predators hockey player Mike Fisher, signed a new two-year, $8.8 million contract and described in him as "married to someone famous." (Whether or not they were joking, we're guessing WSMV didn't refer to Carrie as "married to someone who's good with a puck" in November when she hosted the CMA Awards... IN NASHVILLE.)

    "First name: Someone. Last name: Famous," Carrie wrote on Instagram, reposting Mike's screenshot entry. "Had a good laugh at this!" he noted.

  • Harper Beckham Proves Her Minions Fandom With Dad's New Tattoo

    If the body is a temple, David Beckham's is now a place of worship for a specific type of toddler who's enthusiastic about the little yellow animated menaces known as Minions.

    On Instagram Tuesday, Victoria Beckham showed off her husband's newest ink, chosen by their daughter, Harper, who turns 4 on July 10.

    "Harper has just added to Daddie's tattoo collection," Victoria wrote.

    The tattoo, which is clearly temporary, appears to be on David's right hip bone, as evidenced by the foot in the upper lefthand corner of the photo, a piece of a tattoo Beckham has of Jesus on his side. The Minion characters initially appeared in Despicable Me , they have their own spinoff film,  Minions , opening in theaters next Friday.

  • Petty Girls? Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea Feud Over Flop

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 7 hrs ago

    Sometimes famous, talented women get pitted against each other in the media for no reason. Other times, famous, talented women pit themselves against each another.

    We were excited to see Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea pair up for the auto-tune heavy track "Pretty Girls" earlier this month. We thought: Look, Brit has a new girlfriend in the biz. (It had been a long time.) Ditto for Iggy, who is often beefing with people. But there was apparently no love lost between the pair when their song didn't make a splash.

    Brit threw shade at Iggy on Monday night after the Australian rapper commented on Twitter about their song failing to be a chart topper.

    On Sunday, Iggy candidly responded to a fan's tweet about "Pretty Girls" not being a big hit, topping out at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100. Maybe too candidly.


  • TMI, John Legend! Singer Makes Wife Chrissy Teigen Blush

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 18 hrs ago

    Chrissy Teigen's known for giving a little too much information, whether it's that she never wears underwear, that she enjoys certain perks of her menstrual cycle, or that she and hubby John Legend are official members of the Mile High Club.

    On Monday, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl exposed herself again as she was one of 10 models who posed topless for W Magazine. She pulled on underwear from Dolce & Gabbana for the occasion, but she probably didn't like it.

  • Jeremy Renner Opens Up About Bitter Divorce: 'There's a Light at the End of the Tunnel'

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    For Jeremy Renner, doing crazy stunts in action movies is easy. Getting divorced? Very, very hard.

    The Mission: Impossible 5 star is opening up about his contentious divorce from Sonni Pacheco and their bitter custody dispute over their 2-year-old daughter Ava. The 44-year-old, whose marriage lasted just 10 months, says the battle — which was settled in April — took a toll on him physically.

    "I haven't slept more than four hours a night in the past week," Renner said in Playboy's July/August issue. "My skin's breaking out. I've got dark circles under my eyes. I'm dehydrated. I look like s--t. I felt pretty insecure walking into a photo shoot this morning, and I was running late because I had just gotten out of my fourth deposition for the divorce."

  • Michael Douglas: I Love Catherine Zeta-Jones More Than Ever

    Suzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity 1 day ago

    Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have proved that absence really can make the heart grow fonder.

    After their brief separation in 2013 — amid his tongue cancer treatment and her ongoing struggle with bipolar II disorder — the pair has been the picture of happiness in family photos taken this summer. In a new interview, the Ant-Man actor, 70, says that things are better than ever.

    "We had a little bump in the road. The problem in this business is that everything is so public," Douglas told the U.K.'s Event Magazine. "I love Catherine as much, more than I ever have. And hopefully the feeling’s mutual. We worked things out — if both people want to work something out and make it better, you can do it. You can’t do it if it's just one person."

    He added, "We’re about to have our 15th wedding anniversary and it feels great."
