Jennifer Lopez. Beyoncé Knowles. Gwyneth Paltrow. And now, Lupita Nyong'o.
People has named the 31-year-old actress, who won an Oscar for her breakout performance in last fall's "12 Years a Slave," 2014's Most Beautiful in its annual issue.
While receiving the "Most Beautiful" title is pretty cool in itself, Nyong'o says she is thrilled to receive the honor because of what it means for others.
"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," she tells the mag. "And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Internet rumors have been swirling that "Orange Is the New Black" star Laura Prepon is dating Tom Cruise, and even though his rep denied it and told "The Insider With Yahoo" that the two have never even met, the actress is now speaking out and putting all the false information to rest. In an interview with the website She Knows, Laura explained her thoughts about the speculation.
"It's just so funny that, when people don't know, they just make stuff up, [like], apparently I'm dating Tom Cruise right now. And apparently he doesn't want me doing the show because I portray a lesbian and I'm a Scientologist. This is false; where are they even getting this stuff? It's unbelievable to me."
While Laura and Tom aren't dating, they both are Scientologists, and that may have been what started the speculation. The actress is also opening up about her beliefs and the common misconceptions people have.

It is hard to ignore the striking similarities between photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and snaps taken of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
In 1983, Charles and Diana became the first royal couple to take their 9-month-old son, Prince William, on a tour abroad of Australia and New Zealand. Royals previously left their children at home during official visits for the monarchy. But the trendsetting couple – who sadly split years later prior to Diana's tragic death – were simply setting the precedent for their son and his future bride.
When Kate and Will struck out on their first royal tour with their 9-month-old son Prince George, it became apparent that the duo is borrowing the playbook from Will's parents, from their itineraries to their outfits.
Thirty years later, Kate and Will are showing their respect for their elders and also putting their own modern stamp on the monarchy.

Baby makes four for Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman! The actress, 39, gave birth to a healthy little girl on Tuesday, April 22. “Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple told People in a statement. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”
Perhaps it was that Chinese food that sent the actress into labor?
On Monday, Barrymore posted the below photo on Instagram with the caption: " Desert ! #iheartchinesefood. "
This is the second child for Barrymore and Kopelman, 36, who welcomed their daughter, Olive, in September 2012.
“I’m relieved I’m having another girl," the "Grey Gardens" star told People in February. "I have everything I need. It’s all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff. I’m pretty psyched about that!”
Olive is also excited to be a big sister.

Perhaps the "Meet the Parents" residuals aren't what they used to be?
Actress Teri Polo, best known for her role as Ben Stiller's wife in the film trilogy that also includes "Meet the Fockers" and "Little Fockers," filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Los Angeles last week.
Polo, 44, currently stars as one of the moms in the critically acclaimed ABC Family show "The Fosters," which begins its second season in June.
Polo, a resident of Manhattan Beach, California , claims in her filing that she has estimated assets of less than $50,000 and liabilities approaching $1 million. She owes nearly $745,000 to the IRS, just over $27,000 to the California Franchise Tax Board, nearly $30,000 to American Express, and nearly $7,000 to Chase.

Talk about a statement necklace.
With the news that Khloé Kardashian is more than friends with rapper French Montana, the 29-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star stepped out wearing a necklace with his name on it.
The reality TV star was sporting the new accessory last Wednesday at LAX airport when she was with the Moroccan-born music maker and CEO of Cocaine City Records. While it appears a little fuzzy to us (and the language experts we consulted), E!, home to all things Kardashian, insists it says "Karim" in Arabic — a nod to his birth name, Karim Kharbouch.
For the record, Medhat Credi, who is senior Arabic language lecturer at NYU and a former UN translator, tells Yahoo that this is how "Karim," which means "generous," should look in Arabic script:

"It's a very nice thing to be able to rely on." [Related: The 13 Prettiest Date-Night Hairstyles]
As for why the 33-year-old chose now to shirk her stand-in and pose in the buff, she admits, "I talk a big game about being comfortable no matter my size. I wanted to put my money where my mouth was."
Check out the video to hear Kristen's laid back attitude about losing the baby weight and be sure to tune into "The Insider" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.

Julia Roberts may look happy on the cover of the May issue of WSJ magazine, but behind that smile she is grieving the loss of her half-sister, Nancy Motes, who passed away of an apparent drug overdose in February. The actress opened up for the first time about the death in an interview with the magazine that took place just weeks after.
"It's just heartbreak. It's only been 20 days. There aren't words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days," Julia explained. "It's hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead."
According to the mag, the 46-year-old's eyes began to well up as she explained, "You don't want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world. But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family. It's so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family."

Do Padma Lakshmi and Richard Gere have the recipe for love?
The "Top Chef" host and "Arbitrage" actor are dating, Yahoo confirms.
Gere, 64, and Lakshmi, 43, "just recently" started seeing each other. "It's early and new, but they seem to enjoy spending time together," adds a source.
The actor is currently filming "Time Out of Mind" in New York City, where the brunette beauty lives.
This is the first potential romance for Gere and Lakshmi since their previous long-term relationships.
In September 2013, Gere and his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, 53, announced they were separating. They have one son together, 14-year-old Homer. Gere was also married to Cindy Crawford for four years before their divorce in 1995.

As if Kris and Bruce Jenner's separation needed to get stranger.
Monday marked the couple's 23rd wedding anniversary, prompting the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" matriarch to take to Twitter to publicly congratulate the former sports star on reaching the marital milestone.
She also posted an Instagram photo of them — in their younger, less cosmetically enhanced years — looking so happy together.
The obvious elephant in the room is that Kris and Bruce separated. In October. Yep, that was six months before this cheery anniversary shout-out.
