Entertainment News

Gwyneth Paltrow may have played a role in Chris Martin's breakup with Jennifer Lawrence. Sources tell People that Jennifer reportedly couldn't get past Chris' close relationship with his ex.

A source told the magazine, "Everyone jumped the gun with this romance. It is hard for her to understand the feelings between Chris and Gwyneth. She broke it off with Chris. She was tired of the spotlight on their relationship and she also thought that Chris and Gwyneth were a little too close for comfort. It was an odd situation for her."

  • Other insiders claim that Gwyneth knew all along that the relationship wouldn't last. According to Radar Online, "Gwyneth wasn't surprised by it. She never thought the relationship was going to last because of their age difference. Jen is 24 and Chris is 37. Plus, Jen complained to Chris that she felt like the third wheel in their relationship because of all the time he spent with his kids. Gwyneth always pressured Chris to spend more time with Apple and Moses. The kids would constantly call Chris when he was with Jennifer, and whatever they were doing would have to come to a standstill. There was always the expectation from Gwyneth that Chris should spend even more time with the kids."

Kim Kardashian wants a little more respect for all she's accomplished in her career despite being a reality star. She explained why she thinks people don't take her seriously while speaking at the Re/Code Code Mobile conference earlier this week.

Kim said, "That is a question that sometimes I get frustrated with. I pride myself in my work ethic and I work really hard. I think sometimes that when people hear that I might have gotten success off of a 'reality show,' they take that as a negative. We're filming our tenth season. We've had nine seasons of spinoffs. We have more episodes than I Love Lucy. We have so many milestones that people don't think about. I don't think reality TV gets the respect it deserves."

  • When asked to describe her typical day she said, "I wake up every single day at 6 a.m., and go to the gym, and get my daughter up, feed my baby, film all day, sometimes don't finish until 8 or 9 p.m., and that's every single day, six days a week, for five months straight while we're filming."
  • Kim also denied that she gets paid $10,000 per tweet but would not discuss how much she made off of her mobile game which has been estimated to make $200 million in revenue in its first year of release.

Katie Holmes wants to be known as an actress and not as Tom Cruise's ex-wife. Over two years after their split, she is finally opening up about her post-divorce life and getting her career back on track.

Katie tells People, "I don't want that moment in my life to define me, to be who I am. I don't want that to be what I'm known as. I was an actor before, an actor during and an actor now." She goes on to say, "I don't have any fear now, I don't have a lot of rules for myself, and I don't take myself that seriously. I feel ready for new challenges."

  • The former Dawson's Creek star will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy in The Kennedys: After Camelot -- an upcoming miniseries on Reelz.

Former Baywatch actor David Charvet and his wife, Brooke Burke, are at war with their neighbor -- Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss. According to TMZ, Charvet filed a restraining order against Fleiss alleging that he has been terrorizing them and even threatening violence.

Mike reportedly pointed speakers at his neighbor's house and blasted sounds of dogs barking, crying, and howling at all hours of the day and night. He also supposedly revved up his car engine which was taken as a threat to run Charvet over. David and Brooke are also under the impression that he played a role in getting her fired from her gig on Dancing with the Stars.

  • The judge presiding over the case shut down the request for a restraining order.
  • It is believed that Mike's actions may be a response to the noises created by David and Brooke's own dogs.

REPORT: JESSICA BIEL IS PREGNANT: Jessica Biel is rumored to be with child. A source told Radar Online, "Jessica is at least three months pregnant. And she's due in April!"

Jessica and hubby Justin Timberlake celebrated their two-year anniversary on October 19th.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE DISCUSSES AVOIDING THE CHILD STAR CURSE: Daniel Radcliffe participated in an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit earlier this week where he was asked why he and his co-stars have handled the fame so much better than other former child stars. He responded, "I would attribute it to my parents and also to the crew of the Potter films, who were very good at treating us like kids rather than as actors, as they should have done. It's hard to say what it comes down to. I think also when you grow up in the media, you get a very clear sense of how crazy the media is." Daniel added, "The countdown that Emma's birthday was to when she turned 18, or 17, or whatnot, it was insane. It was insane. And I think when you see that perspective that we all saw at very young ages, you do get an extra level of awareness maybe."

MIRANDA KERR AND ORLANDO BLOOM HAVE A SOLID RELATIONSHIP: Miranda Kerr appears in the new issue of Elle Australia explaining how she and ex-husband Orlando Bloom keep a solid relationship for their three-year-old son. She tells the magazine, "We're very good friends and this bonding is the most important thing, otherwise Flynn would feel it. We do everything to make sure our relationship is harmonious. We both love and care about each other and genuinely want each other to be happy." The couple announced the end of their three-year-marriage in October of 2013.

The script required cast members to wear warm clothes for the scene which is likely to have caused the problem.

She told the magazine, "She's awesome. They've been away for months working together in South Africa, so I haven't seen much of either of them. She's great and they're amazing together. As long as my dad's happy, I'm happy for both of them." Dylan went on to explain what she likes about Charlize saying, "Well, she's brilliant for one thing...and she's the only woman since my mom who can shut my dad up. The only woman! That is a f***ing challenge so...She's a powerhouse."

  • Dylan's mother is House of Cards star Robin Wright.
  • Sean and Charlize's relationship was first reported last January.
