Reese Witherspoon posted a video on YouTube this week sending get-well wishes to a 4-year-old boy named Will who’s battling cancer.

The boy’s mom, a woman named Julie, sent out an email explaining that Will watches Witherspoon’s “Legally Blonde” movie “like four time a day” on the hospital TV and that he is smitten with “The Pink Girl.”

So Witherspoon got all dressed up in Elle Woods’s favorite color and held up a sign that reads “TeamWill” in a video he and his family will not soon forget.

There was no daddy-daughter dance at the wedding of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Angie’s dad, Jon Voight, had no idea the couple were getting married.

“No, I didn’t know it was happening,” he said. “It seems like it was very nice – and with all the kids involved, it must have been a lot of fun and very beautiful. I’m happy for them.”

Although Jolie and Voight have had a rocky relationship in the past, there was no bad blood in this instance. The couple’s wedding was just that private.

Jennifer Aniston appeared on the TODAY Show on Wednesday to hype her new film, “Life of Crime,” but talk quickly turned personal.

In the interview with Carson Daly, Aniston opened up about how she is often made to feel like less of a woman simply because she doesn’t have kids.

“I don’t have this sort of check list of things that have to be done,” she said. “I’ve birthed a lot of things and I feel like I’ve mothered a lot of things, and I don’t think it’s fair to put that kind of pressure on people.”

Miley Cyrus’s Homeless VMAs Date Has a Warrant Out for His Arrest

image
Police showed up to the Oregon home of Linda Helt on Tuesday, looking to arrest her son, Jesse Helt. Jesse was not home at the time, though officers say it is “likely” only a matter of time until he is finally handcuffed.

Jesse shot to fame on Sunday night when Miley Cyrus brought him to the VMAs as her date. She had him accept the Video of the Year award on her behalf, and he gave a moving speech about the importance of helping out young, homeless adults like himself.

On Monday it was revealed that Jesse had a warrant out for his arrest for repeatedly violating the terms of his probation stemming from one of his many run-ins with the law.

Cyrus took to Twitter on Tuesday to reiterate her seemingly unending support for Jesse, saying, “I hope that this can be the start of a national conversation about youth homelessness and how to end it.”

Billy Crystal Pays Tribute to Robin Williams at the Emmys

During Monday night’s Emmys broadcast, Billy Crystal paid a touching tribute to his longtime pal, Robin Williams, who tragically took his own life earlier this month at the age of 63.

“As genius as he was onstage, he was the greatest friend you could ever imagine – supportive, protective, loving,” Crystal said. “It’s very hard to talk about him in the past because he’s so present in all of our lives. For almost 40 years, he was the brightest star in the comedy galaxy, but though some of the brightest stars are extinct now… They float in the heavens, so far away frm us now, their beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever…[and sometimes] you’ll think to yourselves, ‘Robin Williams, what a concept.’”

Crystal’s heartfelt words were followed by a montage of some of Williams’s funniest scenes before fading to black and going to commercial.
