Denise Nickerson, 'Willy Wonka' star, dead at 62

Denise Nickerson, best known for starring as Violet Beauregarde in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, has died at age 62.

Nickerson's family confirmed her death on Facebook Wednesday, writing, "She's gone."

The actress was taken off of life support following a medical emergency that brought her to a Colorado-area hospital, Deadline reported. She had previously suffered from a severe stroke in 2018.

Nickerson's Violet character was famously turned into a giant blueberry in 1971's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, which starred the late Gene Wilder in the title role.

She also appeared in television shows such as Dark Shadows, Search For Tomorrow, Smile and The Electric Company. Nickerson semi-retired from acting at age 21.

Dave Bautista on WWE retirement: 'My vision was to go out on my back'

Dave Bautista discussed his WWE retirement and his new film Stuber co-starring Kumail Nanjiani on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Bautista, who had his final WWE match against Triple H at WrestleMania 35 in April, told Kimmel on Wednesday that he is legitimately retired from WWE and that losing the bout was exactly the way he wanted to end his professional wrestling career.

"My vision was to go out on my back. I think that's the way you do it. Especially if somebody else is gonna still be there so you go, you put them over and he stays and he looks victorious and I go off into the sunset," Bautista said, calling his final match something that he dreamed about.

"I wanted to go out a loser," he continued. "That is the old-school wrestler in me, I would go out on my back."

Bautista was then surprised by Nanjiani after he explained to Kimmel how he allowed his co-star to take credit for helping him buy gifts for the crew of Stuber.

Nanjiani wanted to repay the favor and to give Bautista a gift after he had given the comedian a championship belt and an action figure.

"He gave me a lifelong friendship," Bautista said about Nanjiani not needing to get him anything.

Nanjiani's gift to Bautista was a Bruce Lee lunchbox filled with glutton-free snacks as the former professional wrestler collects lunch boxes and is a big fan of the late movie star.

The pair then presented a comedic skit of Bautista hosting a fake Netflix comedy special. Bautista fails at the job in the clip, unable to make a live audience laugh at his jokes. He eventually grows frustrated and beats up an audience member onstage using a wooden stool.

Stuber arrives in theaters on Friday.

Gary Oldman to star as 'Citizen Kane' screenwriter in 'Mank'

Gary Oldman is set to portray Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz in a new Netflix biopic titled Mank which will be directed by David Fincher.

Mankiewicz was a reporter who entered into Hollywood and co-wrote 1941's Citizen Kane with the film's director Orson Welles.

Mankiewicz, who also worked on other classic films such as The Wizard of Oz and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, accused Welles of trying to take sole credit for penning Citizen Kane.

Citizen Kane, considered to be one of the greatest films of all time, only won one Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Mankiewicz and Welles were both awarded but did not attend the Oscar ceremony.

Fincher is directing based off a script by his late father Jack who wrote the screenplay prior to his death in 2003.

Mank will be presented in black and white with production set to begin in November. Fincher is producing alongside Cean Chaffin and Douglas Urbanski.

The biopic will be Fincher's first feature film work since helming 2014's Gone Girl. Oldman's last biopic role earned him the Oscar for Best Actor after he portrayed former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 2017's Darkest Hour.

Which singer, TV personality and fashion designer is releasing her memoir in February 2020?

Jessica Simpson will release a memoir in February 2020.

The 39-year-old star shared plans in an Instagram post Wednesday for the untitled book with Harper Collins. Dey Street Books will publish the book Feb. 4.

"I have been waiting for so long to share some exciting news... I will be releasing my first book on February 4th with @harpercollinsus," Simpson wrote. "I have been working so hard on it - I have opened my heart up in a way I never have before and now I can't wait to share it with the world."

People said the memoir will explore the ups and downs of Simpson's life and career, including her marriage and divorce from Nick Lachey. Simpson is now wed to Eric Johnson and is parent to three children, Maxwell, Ace and Birdie, with the former NFL player.

"I have been approached many times over the years about writing a book. It never felt right to me until this very moment," Simpson told the magazine. "I have always felt that one of my God-given purposes in this life is to inspire people."

"I hope that by telling my story and not holding back I can help move people to walk through their fears and defeat their challenges, as I am working hard to do every day with mine. I hope readers will feel the love, laughter, tears and truth contained in every page."

Simpson released her debut studio album, Sweet Kisses, at age 19 in 1999. She married Lachey in 2003 and starred on the MTV series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica with the 98 Degrees singer, but split from Lachey in 2005. She launched her Jessica Simpson Collection fashion line the same year and married Johnson in 2014.

"Millions of women have grown up with Jessica Simpson, watching her triumph in her career, find love and lose love and then find it again, build a successful business and a beautiful family," Dey Street VP Carrie Thornton said. "She's been a role model, a friend and a big sister to her fans. And now, she is taking the brave step of opening her heart and her life completely with her memoir."
