    Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson may seem like a tough guy, but we have proof that he's not ashamed to rock out to a little Taylor Swift once in a while. 


    On Sunday night's episode of "Ballers" (minor spoiler ahead!) the wrestler-turned-actor does just that. While driving his car in character as Spencer Strasmore, he starts singing along to Swift's "Shake It Off," and even continues to literally brush the dirt of his shoulders once the chorus kicks in. He doesn't miss a beat. And while we know this video is part of a TV show, we'd like to think it's not too far from the truth. 


    Watch for yourself.

    Zac Efron is in negotiations to star opposite Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in a "Baywatch" movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter -- and the The Rock apparently made it official. 


    On Monday, Johnson tweeted: 





    According to THR, the big-screen reboot of the '90s show will follow a "by-the-book and very serious lifeguard (Johnson) who is forced to team up with a young rule-flouting hothead (Efron)." Reportedly, their characters must join together against an oil tycoon that threatens to destroy their beach. "Baywatch" is set to go into production early next year and be released in 2017, says THR.


    Oh and it's going to be "big, fun and RATED R" -- at least if we can take Johnson's word for it.

    Selena Quintanilla may soon be immortalized in wax.


    A Change.org petition is pushing Hollywood's Madame Tussauds Wax Museum to honor the slain Tejano star with a figure. And in the five days since its launch, it’s managed to gather over 1,600 signatures.


    Quintanilla was murdered on the cusp of superstardom in 1995, but in her short life the Texas native broke several records within her genre and beyond. Her legacy lives on two decades later thanks in part to her fans’ passionate efforts to keep her memory alive.


    The new petition cites many of the singer’s accomplishments as reasons to honor her with a wax statuette at the museum.


    “She deserves it for her humble, kind, and down to earth self. She left a beautiful legacy that will forever be remembered!” the petitioner wrote in an update, after the petition had garnered over 1,000 signatures in two days.


    If the petition succeeds, it wouldn’t be the first time Selena fans have been victorious on the platform. Patty Rodriguez, a producer for “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” began a Change.org petition earlier this year to have MAC cosmetics honor Selena with a special collection. Six months later the company announced that the M•A•C Selena Quintanilla collection would arrive in stores in 2016.


    If the Tejano singer’s fans are half as passionate about a Selena wax figure as they were about the makeup line, then perhaps Madame Tussauds should start melting a fresh batch of wax now.

     The worlds of country and pop music collide all the time -- just ask Taylor Swift -- but they've never been mashed up quite like this before. 


    Smule, an online company that's "making music social, interactive and collaborative again," shared a video on its Facebook page in which Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan perform one of the best duets we've heard in a while. And they weren't even in the same room. 


    The country crooner used Smule's Sing! karaoke app to create the virtual duet by adding a recording of himself performing Derulo's hit "Want to Want Me" to the pop and R&B singer's video on the music-sharing platform. The result is a split-screen clip of the two artists singing a pretty great duet -- Bryan really nails those falsetto high notes. Check out the whole video below:



    Check out this awesome duet with Luke Bryan and Jason Derulo! #WantToWantMe--> http://usat.ly/1L20ejL

    Posted by Smule on Monday, August 10, 2015

    We're calling it now: virtual duets are about to have a moment.

    Small chairs. No phones. 


    Those were just some of the gripes Howard Stern jokingly had about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux's wedding. The radio host talked about the secret nuptials during his Monday SiriusXM show. Apparently, he was "miserable" after being chosen to make a speech at the reception, and spent the first 10 minutes complaining. 


    "My speech at the Theroux-Aniston wedding was basically I got up for 10 minutes and started whining about these chairs they had," he said. "They had these little tiny [chairs] ... like little pillow poufs. I'm 6-foot-fucking-5!" And no phones. "I got up and I said ... 'Why can't I have my fucking cellphone?' In other words, I don't want to take a picture of you two! I really don't. I want my cellphone so after I make this speech I can call my car and get the fuck outta here! ... People were laughing very hard at my misery."


    Of course, Stern was joking -- he's a good friend of Aniston and Theroux's. He and his wife, Beth, have even vacationed with them. "I'm very friendly with Justin. I like him very much, I really admire him," Stern gushed.


    Stern also revealed that Jimmy Kimmel officiated the wedding. "Jim was the preacher, you know the guy who did the ceremony. He did a great job, you know, he did a beautiful job," he said. 


    Aniston and Theroux married Wednesday at their mansion in Bel Air in front of about 70 family and friends, including Stern, Kimmel, Courteney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Orlando Bloom and Chelsea Handler.

    DETROIT, Aug 10 (Reuters) - Melissa Gilbert, best known for playing Laura Ingalls Wilder in the 1970s television drama "Little House on the Prairie," has thrown her bonnet in the ring for a U.S. congressional seat in Michigan.


    Gilbert, 51, who moved to Howell, Michigan, in 2013, said in a tweet on Monday that she was "excited to announce my run for U.S. Congress in Michigan's 8th. Please join me in my fight for working families."


    "I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done. Please join my campaign, and together we can build that new economy for Michigan," she said in a statement released on Monday by the Michigan Democratic Party.



    Gilbert, who lives with her husband Timothy Busfield in Howell, about 60 miles (97 km) from downtown Detroit, has no political background but served two terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 2001 to 2005. She also wrote three books, including the New York Times Best Seller "Prairie Tale: A Memoir," about her role in the show about a Minnesota farm family in the 1870s and 1880s.


    The former child actress's run as a Democrat comes in a Republican stronghold district, the Detroit Free Press reported.


    Mike Bishop last year won the race to replace fellow Republican Mike Rogers, beating Democrat Eric Schertzing 54 percent to 42 percent. Rogers had decided not to seek re-election.


    The Daily Press & Argus newspaper in Livingston County, Michigan, reported last month that the Internal Revenue Service had filed a lien against Gilbert alleging she owed more than $360,000 in back taxes. Her campaign office did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday. (Editing by Fiona Ortiz and Eric Walsh)

    Stephen Colbert on Monday joked that he “prays” Donald Trump stays in the presidential race so Colbert can make jokes about him when “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” debuts on CBS Sept. 8.


    “I just want to say that every little boy grows up believing they could be president of the United States, and I’m so happy that little boy turned out to be Donald Trump," Colbert said at the Television Critics Association press tour. "I just hope he’s taking his vitamins. Please stay healthy until I get on the air. Don’t do anything dangerous, don’t ride any motorcycles. Every night I light a candle and pray that he stays in the race and I also hope that no one puts that candle anywhere near his hair.”


    Until he gets on the air, all his jabs amount to “dry Trumping,” Colbert said, pulling out his phone so he could live-tweet that joke from the stage. 


    Though he’s still prepping for his “Late Show” debut, Colbert appeared on camera for the final “Daily Show” episode last week, and he revealed something that the audience wasn’t aware of: He and the other former correspondents chanted, “Made him cry! Made him cry!” when retiring host Jon Stewart teared up during the last tribute to him. 


    “That might be my favorite thing I ever did on ‘The Daily Show,’” Colbert said. “He never let you thank him.”


    When he was asked to do that final tribute to his former boss, Colbert said he knew it would be a major challenge to keep Stewart on stage as it happened. Colbert said he thought, “He’s going to flop on the dock like a fish -- he’s not going to want me to do that. I was like a rodeo clown. I honestly thought he was going to leave.” 


    What came through during the 40-minute press conference on Monday was Colbert’s eagerness to get on the air and his relief at having dropped the lovable blowhard persona he refined during his time on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” Having come from an improvisational background, he said he looked forward to performing and interviewing as himself, not as “Colbert.”


    “Not having to run everything I say through the character in my head is really lovely,” Colbert said. “I felt I did everything I could with him and everything I could do with that show, other than [showcase] my honest interest in my guest, which is almost constant. Now I feel almost more freed up.


     “When you’re interviewing people, you don’t know what’s going to happen. That’s much closer to how I learned my craft,” Colbert said. “All I really want from a guest is someone who has something to say, so I can play with them."


    That said, he hopes to have serious conversations not just with actors and singers, but with authors, politicians and other kinds of public figures, as well. 


    “The audience followed us” during those kinds of conversations on “The Colbert Report,” he said, “and I don’t see any reason why it should stop.” (Among the news sources he reads daily: Reddit's political subreddits, the Drudge Report and The Huffington Post.)


    Colbert said he spent time with David Letterman before he left the show to ask him about hosting, and to thank him for being a role models. Colbert said he “stole” from Letterman, especially when he read letters from lawyers that specifically stated they should not be read on the air.


    “That idea of not being bound by authority and not thinking anyone’s too good to be made fun of -- including myself,” all comes from the Letterman model, Colbert said. 


    The last musical guest on “The Colbert Report” was Kendrick Lamar, who will be Colbert's first musical guest on “The Late Show,” Colbert revealed Monday. News broke recently that his first guest will be George Clooney. 


     "I wish I could have done better than George Clooney," he deadpanned.

    There are few things in life that Meryl Streep hasn't taught us. She has shown us what it's like to be a #GIRLBOSS, how to age gracefully and how to give zero f**ks about what other people think. But one aspect of Streep's life in the limelight that is often overlooked is her killer sense of style


    The actress knows what works on her body, has a uniform and isn't afraid to stick with it. But that's not to say she doesn't take the occasional risk. Today, we celebrate Streep's awesome fashion choices, with lessons that the Oscar-winner has taught us about getting dressed.

    It's been a year since Robin Williams died, and his death is sure to be on the minds of all of his family and friends.


    Sarah Michelle Gellar, who co-starred with Williams in CBS' 'The Crazy Ones,' posted a touching tribute to the late actor on Instagram.


    "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better wether[sic] by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded," she said, quoting the poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, "You succeeded RW."


    The quote accompanied a photo of the bench from Good Will Hunting, which has since been turned into a makeshift memorial for the beloved comedian:

    French-Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan is back in front of the camera in his latest film, "Tom at the Farm." The psychological thriller, which debuted at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and finally opens in the U.S. this week, marks the first time the 26-year-old writer-director-actor has ventured into a genre film.


    In his follow-up to "Mommy," "Tom at the Farm" follows the death of Tom's (Dolan) lover Guillaume. When Tom travels from the city to the countryside for the funeral, he learns that the family knows little of his existence. While Guillaume's mother (Lise Roy) was expecting a visit from her son's non-existent girlfriend, the brother Francis (Pierre-Yves Cardinal) quickly understands who Tom is and is adamant to keep his late brother's sexuality from their mother, even with violence.


    In an exclusive clip from the film, scored by Oscar-winning composer Gabriel Yared ("The English Patient"), Tom attempts to escape the family farmhouse after an abusive altercation with Francis.




    "Tom at the Farm" opens on Aug. 14.

    Ben Affleck was all smiles at the premiere of the revival of HBO's "Project Greenlight." 


    The actor was photographed laughing on the red carpet, dressed in a blue suit with his wedding ring on his finger, outside the Ace Hotel theater in Los Angeles Monday night. 




    Even co-producer and friend Matt Damon noticed his mood. 


    "He's got a big smile on his face tonight," Damon told reporters on the red carpet, according to Us Weekly. 



    Affleck's wedding ring has been on and off since he announced his split from wife Jennifer Garner back in June after 10 years of marriage. Rumors have since swirled that the 42-year-old Oscar winner had been cheating on Garner with their children's nanny, Christine Ouzounian, for months before the breakup news.  


    His rep said in July that the gossip is unfounded. “People’s lives are at stake," the rep said to Gossip Cop, "and they chose to try to sell more magazines” with “lies.”

    On Monday, David Beckham pushed back against a flimsy story recently published in The Daily Mail that criticized his parenting techniques -- particularly his daughter Harper's continued use of a dummy, known in the U.S. as a pacifier.


    “Why do people feel they have the right to criticize a parent about their own children without having any facts ??” he asked. “Everybody who has children knows that when they aren't feeling well or have a fever you do what comforts them best and most of the time it's a pacifier so those who criticize think twice about what you say about other people's children because actually you have no right to criticize me as a parent …”



    A photo posted by David Beckham (@davidbeckham) on



    The Daily Mail story, which came complete with a prototypical, all-encapsulating Daily Mail-esque headline, said that “parenting experts” claimed that the Beckhams were putting Harper's “teeth at risk by letting her continue to use” a pacifier.


    The story includes this worry-inducing line (emphasis ours):



    The NHS Choices website recommends parents 'should avoid using dummies after 12 months of age' to prevent speech development problems.



    But go to the NHS Choices webpage, which is unlinked by The Daily Mail, and you’ll find the quote is far less worry-inducing when read in context (again: emphasis ours):



    Will a dummy or thumb sucking harm my child's teeth?


     


    No, but they will encourage an open bite, which is when teeth move to make space for the dummy or thumb. They may also affect speech development. That's why you should avoid using dummies after 12 months of age.


     


    Thumb sucking and dummies won't cause permanent problems as long as the habit stops by the time your child gets their second teeth, but it can be a hard habit to break.


     


    Discourage your children from talking or making sounds with their thumb or a dummy in their mouth, and don't dip dummies in anything sweet, such as sugar or jam.



    For those interested, the Mayo Clinic also has additional pros and cons on its website for parents deciding whether to use a pacifier. But suffice it to say there is no one correct answer. It’s just a matter of what works for the parents. Parents like the Beckhams.


    H/T FTW

    Did Kylie Jenner's birthday invitation include a request for guests to wear their best blond wig? If so, Miley Cyrus' 15-year-old sister Noah was one of the few who complied, but at least she matched the birthday girl


    Seriously though, it's been a while since we've thought about Noah -- and when we do think about her, it's more like this, or like this, or like this (which was only two months ago). 


    They grow up so fast. 





    A photo posted by @noahcyrus on



    And if you have any thoughts on her new look, well, Noah doesn't want to hear it. "We literally dont care one bit (: isnt that right ken?” she captioned one of her Instagram photos from Jenner's party on Sunday night.

    There's nothing better than stumbling down a rabbit hold of old celebrity tweets. Unless it's finding a veritable treasure trove of ones from some of our favorite celebrities that predate their fame. We love hearing their unfiltered thoughts before their streams were overrun with promotions for their latest projects.


    Case in point:


    Lana Del Rey sharing her ultimate aspirations, long before she had hundreds of Tumblr accounts devoted solely to her.





    Harry Styles exemplifying **stellar** fashion taste even before he was big enough to have a stylist:





    T. Swift's first tweet (ever!), when she still had time to care for pets:





    Camila Cabello just, you know, dealing with normal teen stuff and expressing her concern in true ALL CAPS Camila fashion, before Fifth Harmony totally blew up:





    Rebel Wilson brainstorming brilliant ideas for new Olympic sports before her fame skyrocketed when she starred in movies like "Pitch Perfect":





    A 12-year-old Jaden Smith insightfully warning us that he was destined to become the next crazy tweeter (and alluding to Destiny's Child in the process -- well done, J):





    You were right, Jaden; we were not ready for this:





    Cody Simpson exemplifying fanboy tendencies of his own before he had his own pack of fangirls:





    Lorde shopping at the $2 store (before she was wearing $1,200 necklaces -- hard earned, we might add -- in music videos):





    Joe Jonas enjoying the simpler things in life (and summarizing our very thoughts) during a more stagnant period of the Jonas Brother's fame:





    Anna Kendrick going unrecognized at the airport, and being mistaken for an unaccompanied minor (before she was big enough to be recognized at the airport, apparently!):





    A young Hailee Steinfeld defending her love of the kids' menu before becoming one of the most sophisticated young icons on the scene (and now a recording artist!):




    Michael of 5SOS explaining what he used to do, back in the days before he was busy touring the world with his band:





    Charli XCX, prior to exploding as Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" sidekick, just dancing like your average teen:





    Ed Sheeran asking some very deep philosophical questions prior to his music dominating the charts:

    Sean Bean has talked about Ned Stark returning to "Game of Thrones" so much that he's finally made it happen, sorta.


    While the English actor may not be back on the HBO series (yet), it is likely fans will get to see Ned Stark as a child in Season 6. Previous casting info for the new season included a character description for a young boy with a Northern accent and green eyes, which we speculated could be a young Ned. Now, "Thrones" fansite Watchers on the Wall has new information that 13-year-old actor Sebastian Croft has reportedly been cast in the role.  The only further detail is that this character will be sparring with a wooden sword in a scene.


    This is, of course, only speculation, since HBO doesn't comment on casting for the series. But we can still predict what this may mean for Season 6:


    Spoilers for the books follow.

    We could meet young Ned Stark in a flashback


    In Season 5, showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff broke one of their initial rules by introducing the first flashback into the series with a young Cersei. It's possible that the upcoming season could also include a flashback to when Ned was a boy. But what will we see in it?


    Young Ned could spar with a young Robert Baratheon


    The new season could give a flashback to when Ned and Robert Baratheon were boys growing up at the Eyrie. The initial casting info revealed by Watchers on the Wall was also seeking two more young boys, one of which would also spar with a wooden sword. While some fans guessed these boys could either be a young Brandon Stark (Ned's older brother) or a young Hodor, it also seems likely it could be a young Robert Baratheon. 


    We could meet Ned and his sister Lyanna as kids


    In A Dance with Dragons, Bran has a vision through a weirwood tree in which he sees a young girl and boy playing with wooden sticks. Some fans speculate that this could be a flashback to a young Lyanna Stark (Ned's sister whom Littlefinger referenced in Season 5) playing with Benjen Stark (Ned and Lyanna's second brother). Since no one knows where Benjen is, one Redditor theorizes that HBO could swap him in the vision with a young Ned. By introducing Lyanna as a child, the show would also provide further context for the rumored Tower of Joy sequence in which an older Ned makes a promise to his sister on her deathbed. If  "Thrones" does include Tower of Joy in the new season, we might just find out who Jon Snow's true parents are. Afterall, almost anything is possible in Season 6 since Bran and his visions will be back.


    For more, head to Watchers on the Wall.

    Vin Diesel, resident Hollywood tough-guy-macho-man, just posted one of the cutest daddy-daughter photos ever on his Instagram account


    In the shot, the proud father is seen kissing his baby girl Pauline's chest as she holds onto his ears (those little fingers!) and kisses his forehead. He captioned the sweet snap, "All love..." It's too cute:



    All love...

    A photo posted by Vin Diesel (@vindiesel) on



    Pauline, who was born in March, was named after Diesel's late friend and "Fast and Furious" co-star Paul Walker. In an interview with Natalie Morales on "Today," the actor explained, "There’s no other person that I’m thinking about as I’m cutting this umbilical cord. I knew he was there and I felt like, you know, a way to keep his memory a part of my memory, a part of my world.”

    On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon appeared as Donald Trump, everyone's favorite non-candidate candidate, on "The Tonight Show." Trump said he felt like his comments about Megyn Kelly have been misconstrued by the media.

    It's not "Almost Paradise" anymore -- "Bachelor in Paradise" has finally arrived, and in abundance. The first week's episodes, three hours in total, offered all the laughter, tears, making out and backstabbing we could possibly hope for.


    In this week's "Here To Make Friends" podcast, hosts Claire Fallon, Culture Writer, and Emma Gray, Senior Women's Editor, recap episodes 3 and 4 of "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 2. We'll discuss Joe's sociopathic tendencies, whether Jared really is all that sweet, Lauren's exit and Clare's cliffhanger breakdown. 




    Plus, Nick Viall, the polarizing runner-up of "The Bachelorette" seasons 10 and 11, joins to catch us up on his life, what the future might hold and to give us his thoughts on "Paradise."


     




     


    Do people love "The Bachelor," "The Bachelorette" and "Bachelor in Paradise," or do they love to hate it? It's unclear. But here at "Here To Make Friends," we both love and love to hate them -- and we love to snarkily dissect each episode in vivid detail.


    This week's best "Bachelor in Paradise" tweets...



    Can't get enough of "Paradise"? Here's last week's episode of "Here To Make Friends."

    Despite suffering two brutal rejections on "The Bachelorette," first by Andi Dorfman, then by Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nick Viall admitted on HuffPost's "Here to Make Friends" podcast Tuesday that he'd still be open to finding love on reality TV. 


    Asked if he would accept an offer to become the next Bachelor, Viall told hosts Claire Fallon and Emma Gray, "To be perfectly honest, I would seriously consider it. It's obviously an incredible opportunity." If anything, he seems to consider his sometimes-bumpy history on the show as good preparation for a future Bachelor: "As a 34-year-old, having dated and having had relationships not work out, you learn about yourself. You learn about what you want [...] and I feel fortunate to be in a position in my life where I know who I am and I'm very comfortable in my own skin and I know what I'm looking for."


    Still, the two-time "Bachelorette" runner-up said he doesn't want to become the guy who only dates with a mic pack on and a host of cameras circling. "I don't want to get pigeonholed," he joked. "But at the same time, it can certainly work."


    If he doesn't get the nod from ABC -- Viall says he has no idea who will turn out to be the next Bachelor -- he had a few thoughts on another former "Bachelorette" contender who might be a good choice. "Obviously, Ben H.'s name comes up a lot," he said. "I think he would be a great choice [...] I have a lot of respect for Ben H. He is as sweet as everyone thinks he is."


    What is Ben H. really like? Well, Viall said, "I might be giving myself too much credit, but Ben kind of reminds me of when I was 26." 


    As of now, Viall says he's in a good place after taking a few months to regroup from his last season of "The Bachelorette" -- but there's no one special in his life at the moment. "I am not currently dating anyone specific or exclusive. I'm not really actively dating," he told "Here to Make Friends."


    You heard him, ladies. Now's your chance; after all, who knows how long he'll be off-camera and on the market?
