    If you still remember Simon Cowell as scowling and rewriting the dictionary of insults on American Idol circa 2003, then it's time for you to get acquainted with Simon Cowell 2.0: Version Dad. The mega-producer and mastermind behind preteen girl tearduct-activater One Direction shared an adorable photo of himself with his son Eric on Twitter — watching Disney movies together, of all things.

    Who knew Cowell would turn out to be such a family man? Judging by his way with Silveman and little Eric, he may have had it in him all along.

     

  • The Whole Beckham Clan Comes Out to Support Romeo's Mini Marathon

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 1 hr ago

    In the Beckham family, they start 'em young.

    At just 12, Romeo Beckham participated in the London mini marathon over the weekend, with the rest of the Beckham clan — sans Harper — cheering him with shouts and handmade signs on from the finish line.

    The mini marathon is three miles long and competitors raise money for charity. In Romeo's case, the charity in question was the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS and UNICEF's 7 Fund, named for David's jersey number. Beckham played proud father on Facebook, posting a photo of Romeo with his medal, boasting that Romeo had raised £6,000 ($9,103.35) for charity.

    A member of the second most famous British family — Prince Harry — was also at the mini marathon, congratulating runners at the finish line.

    Big bro Brooklyn also cheered on Romeo, posting a photo of the two: Romeo sporting a finisher's medal and Brooklyn showing off his "Team Romeo" shirt.

  • So, Why Exactly Did Brad Pitt Have That Bruise on His Face?

    Mallory Schlossberg at Yahoo Celebrity 2 hrs ago

    Stars are just like us — they face plant. And Brad Pitt did exactly that.

    In fact, that's why the actor had a big bruise on his face on Saturday at Autism Speaks's Light Up the Blues Concert. He confirmed to People in a statement his bruise was just the result of a big, old fashioned blooper.

    "This is what happens when you try to run up steps in the dark, with your arms full, wearing flip flops," he said. "Turns out, if you then try to stop forward momentum with your face, the result is road rash." (Then again, as some sartorially-minded folks might suggest, a dude wearing flip flops when he's not on the beach is punishable by the fashion gods, so he had this coming.)

    Not only did he show up to support the event, but he threw down $23,000 for the cause. Pitt participated in an auction and picked up a Fender guitar, with all of the proceeds going towards Autism Speaks.

    A Fender guitar and a bruise? How badass. So badass, in fact, that we won't judge you about the face plant, Brad. Besides, we've all done it, too.

  • Kim Kardashian: Rob Is 'Not Comfortable in His Own Skin'

    Robert Kessler at Yahoo Celebrity 3 hrs ago

    It wouldn't be a day that ends in -y if there weren't some excess of Kardashian-related news. And this particular Monday is no different. Kim Kardashian's Today show interview with Matt Lauer aired Monday morning and, in addition to talking about her book Selfish and voicing her support for ex-stepfather Bruce Jenner, who just came out as transgender, she also talked about Rob Kardashian, the often absent youngest Kardashian.

    "I think he's just going through a phase where he's not comfortable in his own skin," Kim told Lauer during the interview. "And he is working really hard to get back to where he wants to be."

    On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (on which Rob no longer appears) earlier this month, Kris, Kourtney, and Kim spoke about their concerns for Rob's well being.

    "He obviously has some kind of depression," Kim added.

  • Kim Kardashian: As Long as Bruce Jenner Is Happy, I'm Happy

    During his interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday, Bruce Jenner said that — thanks to some wise words from Kanye West — Kim Kardashian has been the "most accepting" member of his family. On Monday, the 34-year-old sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today show to share her thoughts and lend some concrete support to the man she calls Dad.

    "I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it," she began. "And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about."

    See Bruce talk about telling his family:

     

    She is not the only one who has the former Olympian's back. On Monday, Bruce's four oldest children appeared on Good Morning America to speak out on their father's behalf, and their support came with some acknowledgment that their father had, in the past, let them down.

  • Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder Are Married!

    Call it a union made in vampire heaven, if such a thing could possibly exist. Twilight alum Nikki Reed and The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder are married.

    Paparazzi photos of the Sunday wedding surfaced on Twitter early Monday morning, and showed the bride, 26, and groom, 36, in matching white attire. Nikki's fishtailed dress had long sleeves covered in lace. The ceremony took place in Topanga Canyon in Malibu, California, People confirmed.

    "Nikki couldn’t be more excited and thrilled to be marrying Ian," an insider told Us Weekly . "They're both so in love and so happy."

    Ian kicked off their special day with a teasing tweet:

    most beautiful morning ever...

  • 13 Things We Learned From Bruce Jenner's Diane Sawyer Interview, Plus One Thing We Already Kinda Knew

    Elizabeth Durand Streisand at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Sawyer met with Jenner at his California home. The former Olympian was nervous and emotional at first, stopping for tissues just a few minutes into their chat. But as soon as he began to really open up, the nerves melted away and Jenner hit his stride. The result was a special that showed the audience that just because a man has been on a hit reality TV show for eight years doesn't mean we know much about him at all. So, what did this two hours of television teach us that 500-plus episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians didn't?

    1. He considers himself a woman.

    Asked if he considered himself a woman, Jenner didn't miss a beat. "Yes, for all intents and purposes, I am a woman," he began. "People look at me differently. They see me as a macho male, but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life — it is part of me, that female side is part of me, that's who I am. I was genetically born that way."

    2. He isn't gay (as far as he knows).

    3. He considered suicide.

    4. He started taking hormones in the 1980s, but stopped after meeting Kris Jenner.

    6. Kim, Kylie, and Kendall all caught him dressed as a woman at one point.

     

     

  • Robert Downey Jr. Sticks It to Interviewer... Again

    Raechal Leone Shewfelt at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    Don't mess with RDJ.

    As he continued his press tour to promote The Avengers: Age of Ultron on Friday, Robert Downey Jr. took a jab at reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, of Britain's Channel 4 News, who miffed the actor earlier in the week. And all he had to do was post a simple photo: an image of himself with ABC journalist Diane Sawyer, who happened to be his fellow guest on Live With Kelly and Michael.

    In case you missed it, Downey walked out of an interview with Guru-Murthy on Wednesday after the reporter wouldn't stop asking about awkward things from Downey's past, such as how his time in prison affected his political views and how drugs and alcohol influenced his relationship with his father. Kinda heavy subjects for a chat that was supposed to be about a comic book movie!

    As Downey pulled off his mic, he quipped, "You seem OK, it's just getting a little Diane Sawyer in here."

    Burn.

  • Scarlett Johansson Hints as to Why Ryan Reynolds Marriage Didn't Work Out

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    For many Hollywood stars, dating another actor just fits. For Scarlett Johansson, she lived and learned post-Ryan Reynolds that wasn't going to work for her.

    “Acting is a very strange world to be co-existing in. It’s very volatile. There’s always going to be the more successful person,” she told Parade when discussing how fame can be a challenge in a relationship when two actors are involved. “It’s related to rejection. Because actors, if they’re not having success, connect it directly to unpopularity — to the fact that nobody wants them. It’s not necessarily true. I’m constantly rejected."

    Johansson and Reynolds split in 2010 after nearly two years of marriage, but Ryan clearly hasn't found the same statement to be true in his personal life. He went on to wed his Green Lantern co-star Blake Lively in 2012.

    Johansson found that in Romain Dauriac. She married the French journalist in a hush-hush ceremony in Montana last October.

  • Kim Kardashian: We Will Be Watching Bruce Jenner Special as a Family

    Taryn Ryder at Yahoo Celebrity 2 days ago

    "Yes, we will be all watching as a family tonight," Kim Kardashian told E! when asked about her viewing plans. "That is all I am going to say about it now."

    According to Us Weekly, Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie (who posted a sweet "daddy throwback" today), Kanye West, and Scott Disick will join Bruce to watch the 20/20 special. It's unclear whether Rob or Kris will be present, but we're guessing it's an RSVP no for the latter.

    "I'm excited that everyone is hearing what Bruce has to say," Kim also told Access Hollywood , while noting to Variety that she sees Bruce "all the time."

    " Really good?" Kim asked.
