LOOSE LIPS:
"I wake up sometimes and I think 'I'm the fattest woman alive.' But it's really about how you handle it when you wake up. I look in the mirror and I have my affirmations. And mine are simple. [I say] 'You are bold. You are brilliant and you are beautiful.' And then if my lower pooch is really puffing out that day, I say 'Lower pooch you are cute.' And we have a moment. And if the hips are really popping I say 'I love you too, hips.'"

Which actress will play Donatella Versace on 'American Crime Story'?


Ellen Page, Jennifer Garner to reprise 'Juno' roles for fundraiser
Ellen Page and Jennifer Garner will reprise their Juno roles during an upcoming fundraiser.

The 30-year-old Canadian actress and 44-year-old American star will reunite for an all-female live-read of the 2007 movie in April to benefit Planned Parenthood, Juno director Jason Reitman announced over the weekend.

"Come join @EllenPage for a Juno Live Read to support Planned Parenthood!" he encouraged his Twitter followers.

Page and Garner will reprise pregnant teen Juno and adoptive mother Vanessa, with male roles -- such as those played by Michael Cera and Jason Bateman in the film -- to be replaced with female characters, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Reitman will host the live reading April 8 at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. He previously hosted a live-read series for five seasons, and was inspired to revive the show after the 2016 presidential election.

"Like many other people, I felt like I wanted to do something. I wanted to find a way to contribute to the causes that have never felt more important," the director explained.

"It occurred to me that I have this show that could be used as a tool to not only raise money for causes that need the help, but could serve as an opportunity for a group like Planned Parenthood to connect with an audience who can be presented with new ideas, or even an action item," he added.

Reitman will announce the full Juno live-read cast on Twitter in the days before the reading. Page is also slated for a number of new movies, including Flatliners with Nina Dobrev, while Garner will star in The Tribes of Palos Verdes.


Jaime Pressly confirms her home was burglarized
Jaime Pressly confirmed Sunday that her home was recently burglarized.

The 39-year-old actress said through her rep that her house was robbed just one day after $200,000 of jewelry went missing from model Kendall Jenner's home.

"There was a burglary and legal actions are being taken," Pressly's spokesperson told People. "Jaime and her family were not at home during the incident."

TMZ reported Pressly called police late Friday night after she discovered someone had broken into her Sherman Oaks, Calif., home. Sources said the burglar got in through a side window and took the star's jewelry and a laptop.

Los Angeles police confirmed to ABC 7 that a burglary happened at a house owned by Pressly, but said the "amount of loss was undetermined."

Jenner, NBA star Nick Young and singer Alanis Morissette are among the other celebrities whose homes have been burglarized in 2017. Jenner called police early Thursday morning after jewelry was stolen from her Hollywood Hills house.

"Officers did a search of the premises and no suspects were found," a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told E! News at the time. "[It's] an ongoing investigation."

Which actress will play Donatella Versace on 'American Crime Story'?

Penelope Cruz has joined the cast of American Crime Story.

The 42-year-old Spanish actress will portray Donatella Versace, the sister of murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace, in Season 3 of the Ryan Murphy FX series, Versace: American Crime Story.

"For the love of fashion. Let's welcome Penelope Cruz to the 'American Crime Story' family," the official American Crime Story Twitter account confirmed Monday.

Cruz joins previously announced stars Edgar Ramirez and Darren Criss, who will play Gianni and his killer, Andrew Cunanan, respectively. Deadline reported the season will begin production in Los Angeles and Miami in April, and premiere in 2018.

Versace, which draws from the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth, will explore Gianni's 1997 murder and Cunanan's subsequent suicide. Donatella was made creative director of her brother's fashion house, Versace, after his death.

American Crime Story is executive produced by Murphy, the creator of Glee and American Horror Story. The show aired a critically-acclaimed first season, The People v. O.J. Simpson, in 2016, and will explore the events of Hurricane Katrina in Season 2.

Murray had denied in January that American Horror Story alum Lady Gaga will portray Donatella in Versace. Cruz will also star in a remake of Murder on the Orient Express with Josh Gad and Johnny Depp.
