Nice to Meet You - You Are Dismissed

I guess everyone has a breaking point.

It's got to be rough when you're on a publicity junket halfway around the world and reporters start asking silly questions.

Take for instance Cate Blanchett.

She was in Australia on a show called The Project to promote her new film, Cinderella.

The report kept asking off-topic questions, and Cate had to keep steering him back to the purpose of her visit.

And then he asked how she got a cat in the movie to do what she wanted it to do.

And that's when she snapped. Check it out.

How Do You Get a Late Night Talk Show, Anyway?

James Corden debuted his new late night talk show Monday on CBS.

He's the guy who took over Craig Ferguson's spot on The Late Late Show. You might know him as the Baker from the recent theatrical release, Into The Woods.

And now he's hosting a late night talk show.

How does that happen?

Here's how. A rare behind-the-scenes look at how a new kid on the block gets a network TV slot.

That Knot is Tied

Country star Jason Aldean tied the knot last Saturday with Brittany Kerr.

Yesterday, Brittany made it official by posting a picture of herself wearing a "Wifey" shirt to Instagram.

The wedding was held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

And in the You-Can't-Make-This-Stuff-Up Department, the nuptials were officiated by Willie Robertson.

Yes, that Willie Robertson - the one from Duck Dynasty.

And Now, It's Two Direction

You can thank One Direction for the high-pitched wailing coming from your local high school yesterday afternoon.

That's when they made it official: Zayn Malik is leaving the group, and it's permanent.

A week ago, Zayn stopped touring, saying he was stressed.

Now, he wants to be a "normal 22-year-old who is able to relax and have some private time out of the spotlight."

I'm sure that will happen...

Meanwhile, One Direction will continue to tour and record without Zayn.

Which is a pretty normal reaction for a bunch of 22-year-olds, don't you think?

Defect & Head for the Border

Taco Bell launched a new ad campaign yesterday to promote its breakfast menu.

And it's taking aim right between the eyes of a certain clown who routinely provides the "same same same" breakfast.

The long-form ad looks as gray as anything George Orwell ever envisioned, and it has a feel like the Divergent films.

Check it out. Unless you're afraid of clowns. Then you might want to think twice...

A for Effort, But We'll Call This a Fail

You've got to give this guy credit.

A motorist traveling on Interstate 5 outside Tacoma, Washington was using the car-pool lane.

To legally do that, you have to actually have at least one passenger.

This guy did - except it wasn't a real passenger. It was a cardboard cutout of the Most Interesting Man in the World.

You know, the white-bearded guy from the Dos Equis ads?

A state trooper noticed, and pulled the guy over.

The punishment: $124 fine.

The reward: this very cool tweet from the Washington State Patrol.

Pretty Woman + 25

It's the movie that made Julia Roberts a household name.

It's hard to believe that Pretty Woman was released in 1980, but there you have it.

And to hear the story told, it almost didn't happen.

Matt Lauer interviewed four of the cast members - Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Hector Elizondo and Laura San Giacomo - plus director Garry Marshall on yesterday's Today Show.

Julia and Richard did most of the talking, and it's fun to see that their chemistry still works.

Crying Piccolo Girl Goes Viral

Roxanne Chalifoux got national attention over the weekend at the Villanova/ North Carolina State game in the first round of the NCAA basketball tournament.

A piccolo player in the Villanova band, she was caught on TV, playing through her pain at the end of the game, which Villanova lost by 3 points.

All of a sudden, she was a star.

So it's only natural that Jimmy Fallon would have her on The Tonight Show, and even better, she sat in with the show's house band, The Roots.

Check it out...
