Anderson Cooper
Anderson Cooper has covered the toughest news stories with dignity and professionalism but his straight-laced facade has come undone. The CNN anchor recently lost his composure while doing a segment on actor Gerard Depardieu.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Academy Award nominated French actor Gerard Depardieu did the unthinkable.

He urinated on a public plane and NOT in a bathroom. Apparently, he had to relieve himself and couldn't wait 15 minutes for the seatbelt sign to go off. Therefore, he went to the back of the plane, grabbed a bottle and handled his business.

The "Paparazzi" hitmaker has a haul of honors to her name for her chart-topping tracks, and added three more Grammy Awards to her collection at Sunday's prizegiving in Los Angeles.

And she confesses she owes much of her success to her vices.

In an interview with Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, Gaga says, "I smoke a lot of pot when I write music. I'm not gonna sugar coat it for 60 Minutes that I'm some sober human being, 'cause I'm not. I drin...

Lady Gaga
We spotted pop superstar Lady Gaga out for a stroll in London along the Thames River with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Cooper was interviewing her about her upcoming album, "Born This Way," and the chat marked the first official interview about the CD.

"About to do my very first interview for Born This Way, I'm So Excited and happy!" she explained via her Twitter page.

Looking like something out of a Tim Burton film, the songstress wore lots of lace, a little leather, and a pair of her trademark platform shoes.

"Even though all these people are here. It's really nice to stand by the water," s...

Vince Vaughn
Vince Vaughn has spoken out after the promotional trailer for his new comedy The Dilemma was criticized over the use of the word "gay".

Newsman Anderson Cooper led protests over Vaughn's line, "Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars... are gay," when he appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show earlier this month. Cooper argued that the pejorative use of the world should be eliminated, especially in light of a recent spate of gay teen suicides across America.

The backlash led to movie bosses at Universal Pictures promising to replace the trailer with a new one, and now Vaughn has waded into t...

A leading child psychology expert has commended Eminem for his parenting skills after the rapper told a U.S. news show he has banned swearing around the house.

Vince Vaughn
Movie bosses have agreed to replace the trailer for Vince Vaughn's new comedy "The Dilemma" after newsman Anderson Cooper blasted its offensive use of the word "gay".

Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime chat show on Thursday, Cooper revealed he was offended by the teaser, in which Vaughn tells a room of people, "Ladies and gentlemen, electric cars... are gay."

Vince Vaughn is at the center of a gay rights controversy after he was criticized by newsman Anderson Cooper over a joke in new movie The Dilemma.

The journalist was appalled after hearing Vaughn's pejorative use of the word 'gay' in a clip from the upcoming comedy, about a man who finds out that his best friend's wife is having an affair.

'Big Brother 12' Rips Off 'The Mole' - Premiere Recap

July 9th, 2010 10:01am EDT
Big Brother 12
The CBS reality mainstay "Big Brother" entered its twelfth season Thursday night. And this year, the customary "twist" is similar to the premise of the fallen reality show, "The Mole."

Of the thirteen house guests, one is a "saboteur," acting as the producer's antagonist to prevent the other contestants from winning challenges, or to generally "wreak havoc," according to host Julie Chen. The contestants weren't informed of this until after they moved into the "Big Brother" house.

Chen says the saboteur may work against an individual or the entire group. He or she is eligible to reign a...

Writer's Viewpoint: Is It Right For Others To Out Gay Celebrities?

June 16th, 2009 11:08am EDT
Lance Bass
To out or not to out, that is the question. For years Out Magazine, a gay publication, has taken to the practice of "outing" celebrities. Outing, declaring a celebrity gay when he or she has not admitted it, is controversial yet effective, for the gay rights movement. The celebrity is notified of the magazine's intent and thereby allowed the chance to come out on his/her own.

This practice, unfortunately, is due to the ignorance that is still running rampant in this country. Gay rights activists choose to emphasize that their lifestyle not only exists, but continues on a much larger ...

TV Election Personalities: Giving Fresh Faces To This Election

October 21st, 2008 11:52am EDT
The View
It's nearing the end of October; do you know whom you're voting for? Most likely, yes, you've known for a while. And, depending on whom you're voting for and whether you watch political news programs, you probably fall into one of a few categories. If you're a die hard McCainiac, you might spend your evenings listening to Bill O'Reilly tell his guests to shut up. If you're an Obama mama, you may tune into Keith Olbermann's incessant barking. If you're for either but want a seemingly nonaffiliated program that maintains some entertainment value, Anderson Cooper might be what you're looking f...

Lindsay Lohan's father Michael has branded TV journalist Anderson Cooper a "hypocritical idiot" after becoming involved in a war of words between his ex-wife Dina and the news anchor.

Celebrated CNN reporter Cooper took a swipe at the Mean Girls star's younger sister Ali while hosting live morning show Live with Regis & Kelly on Tuesday. The journalist branded Ali and Dina's reality show, Living Lohan, a "train wreck", before comparing the 14-year-old to a 60-year-old and a "striptease person".

The comments infuriated mom Dina, who hit back at Cooper in OK! Magazine, warning, "P...

Summer TV Preview: ABC, CBS, NBC & Fox

May 28th, 2008 9:43am EDT
Memorial Day has come and gone, and with its passing the summer of 2008 has (unofficially) begun. It wasn't so many years ago that the summer quarter was little more than an exercise in futility for the networks. They figured that no one would want to stay indoors on beautiful summer evenings to watch original programming, so they instead filled the schedule with repeats of shows that weren't interesting the first time around. Occasionally, viewers were treated to the burn-off episodes of a failed (and swiftly canceled) offering from the prior season. Yippee.

That all changed a few...

Cam'ron Distrusts The Police, Has A Strange Code Of Ethics

April 20th, 2007 8:45am EDT
Rapper Cam'ron is so desperate to protect his "code of ethics" he wouldn't alert police if he knew a serial killer was living next door to him. The hitmaker has been interviewed for an upcoming news special about hip-hop culture, during which he admitted he has been brought up to distrust the police.

Cam'ron, real name Cameron Giles, told 60 Minutes, "If I knew the serial killer was living next door to me I wouldn't call and tell anybody on him - but I'd probably move. But I'm not going to call and be like, 'Oh, the serial killer's in 4E.'"

Cam'ron told show host Anderson Cooper...

Actress Jodie Foster's sexuality is under attack again - this time from one of America's top gay magazines.
