Glee star 'unhurt' after brush with danger

Arcade Fire, the Montreal-based indie rock band who gained worldwide fame in February by winning big at the Grammys, came out on top once again at the Juno awards Sunday night in Toronto. Arcade Fire won record, group, and songwriter of the year.


Justin Bieber was (not surprisingly) another big winner, earning best pop album of the year and Juno fan choice (though Bieber was unable to attend the ceremony because he’s currently on tour).


Interestingly, the show’s host, hip-hop star Drake, went home empty-handed – despite being the most-nominated artist with six nominations.


Reese Witherspoon is officially married -- again! The Oscar-winning Legally Blonde actress, 35, tied the knot with 40-year-old talent agent Jim Toth on Saturday.


The couple, who got engaged in December, married in a private 20-minute ceremony at Witherspoon’s ranch estate in Ojai, California.


Approximately 100 guests attended, including Witherspoon’s children (with her first husband Ryan Phillippe), Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, as well as Renée Zellweger, Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn (together - they’re said to be dating now), Salma Hayek, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr. and Alyssa Milano.


The insanely-talented Lea Michele was in a car accident Friday. The Glee star, 24, was on her way home from work around 2 a.m. when she was struck by a car on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles. According to sources, “a couple of drunk girls” weren’t paying attention and hit her. They got out of the car to investigate the damage they had caused, but when they saw it was Lea they apparently “giggled,” asked if she was drunk too and then “drove off” without exchanging any information.

Fortunately, Lea wasn’t hurt and she immediately called the police about the accident, providing them with the girls’ license plate number.


Donald Sutherland, who starred in the 1973 film Don’t Look Now, has denied an upcoming book’s claim that he had sex on camera with co-star Julie Christie.

On Wednesday, The Hollywood Reporter posted a blog by a reporter who had seen an advance copy of the book, “Infamous Players: A Tale of Movies, the Mob, (and Sex),” written by Hollywood veteran Peter Bart. Bart claimed that he watched the scene being filmed and saw the actors engaged in sex.

“Not true. None of it. Not the sex. Not him witnessing it,” Sutherland said.

The scene in question has long been the subject of speculation over whether Sutherland and Christie actually engaged in real sex on camera or were just acting. Why don’t we see what she has to say about it?!? The Canadian actor is 75, Christie is 69.
