The actor/singer and his new fiancee began dating two years ago and first went public at singer Elton John's annual White Tie and Tiara Ball in 2011.

National Teacher Day: Our Favorite Onscreen Teachers

School of Rock
 

May 7, 2013 marks National Teacher Day, and to honor those who have educated and inspired us, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite onscreen teachers.

Dewey Finn (Jack Black), “School of Rock” (2003)

Dewey Finn may have been a rowdy, unemployed wannabe rock star, but after scheming his way into the classroom he became a new kind of role model. Dewey taught his students the true meaning of rock ‘n’ roll and encouraged them to rock out in every aspect of their lives.

What to Expect When You're Expecting
Cameron Diaz was so proud of the fake breasts she wore for new movie What To Expect When You're Expecting that she repeatedly flashed them at her co-stars on set.

The blonde beauty plays mom-to-be Jules in the upcoming comedy and was fitted with a prosthetic bust to give the illusion she was gaining baby weight.

And she was so happy with her enhanced chest; she couldn't wait to show it off to the cast and crew.

Co-star Matthew Morrison says, "They were fake breasts because her character was pregnant. She was walking round with her shirt open all day on set, though, loving her big boob...

No she's not expecting, but Cameron Diaz is definitely preggers in a new poster from "What To Expect When You're Expecting." In the film, four expectant couples learn that having a baby is anything but predictable.

A household name thanks to her popular fitness show, Jules (Cameron Diaz) can't contain her excitement after learning she is about to have a baby with Evan (Matthew J.

I must confess that I’m known for giving the best Christmas presents. With the big day less than two weeks away, I’m putting on my bedazzled Santa hat and taking over gift-giving duties for 10 celebs who have been naughty and nice this year.

Lindsay Lohan

It’s hard being a fan of an actor as troubled as Lindsay Lohan, who seems to be a magnet for mugshots, poor decisions and merry-go-round trips to the L.A. County Jail. My present to the star currently gracing the cover of Playboy in an awkward, overly airbrushed spread, would be the advice and guidance of a celebrity who have rebounde...

'Glee' Recap: It's Mash-Up Week!

Puck leads the boys in a sexually charged performance of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” within the first five minutes of the episode and it's clear that we can put 'The First Time' behind us and have some fun this week.

'Glee' Recap: Virgin Scorecard

Glee Rachel and Blaine
Like Sandra Dee, this week’s ‘Glee’ was lousy with virginity. Expectations were high after promos showed Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Blaine all getting their sexy on… but as it happened, ‘The First Time’ was kind of disappointing.

Unfortunately, West Side Story just doesn’t lend itself to this theme the way Madonna does. The season one tribute to the Queen of Pop covered similar territory and featured “Like a Virgin,” the most perfect song for the occasion. More importantly, the subject of de-flowering came up naturally and organically. Conversely, this week’s sudden sexual awakening isn’t moti...

Picking up where the series left off, this reasonably focused episode advanced several plotlines and introduced some new talent, in the form of ‘Glee Project’ winner, Damian McGinty.

The second of four new cast members that will, at some point, be transplanted from the Oxygen Channel’s competitive reality show to the Fox flagship, McGinty was front and center in his inaugural appearance as foreign exchange student, Rory...

Matthew Morrison has stepped up to a challenge issued by Jonah Hill after the funnyman outed the Glee star as a party bully.

Hill appeared on late night TV last week and revealed Morrison was less than kind to him at a recent Fox network party, when the singer/actor chastised him for allegedly chatting during a presentation.

The SuperBad star was less than amused when he then attended another Hollywood party and overheard Morrison talking about him again - so he jokingly threatened to show Morrison exactly how he feels the next time they meet.

He said, "Yo, Matthew Morrison you better br...

During an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Hill told the host the Glee star had picked on him at the event and left him feeling like an outcast.

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Glee'

August 12th, 2011 9:58am EDT

Believe it or not, this television-aholic actually scoffed at the early promos of what would come to be FOX’s mega-hit, “Glee.” The show looked silly and childish, and I thought it would be cancelled before the fourth episode. My initial assumptions were glaringly and wonderfully wrong. “Glee” is the television equivalent of cotton candy—brightly colored, lighthearted and achingly sweet. It makes me feel inspired and happy while most of my favorite shows make me want to curl up in the fetal position and ugly-cry.

Unfortunately, the last season was a little more sour than sweet thanks t...

The current cast of "Glee" including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be replaced in 2012.

The musical TV hit, set in a high school, has taken the world by storm since it first aired in 2009, and has made stars of castmembers including Michele, Monteith, Chris Colfer and Dianna Agron.

But to maintain the series' realism, creator Ryan Murphy has decided the current class should graduate in 2012 and leave the show for good.

In an interview on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, he says, "That is true. I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this ...

Season Finales: The Good And The Bad

Another television season has come and gone with the usual blitzkrieg of shocking deaths, double-crosses, surprise pregnancies, and aggravating cliffhangers. It was a varied batch of season finales: some were amazing; others were lackluster; and a few finales left me counting the jumping sharks. I can’t watch every finale, but here’s a sampling of the awesomely good and the appallingly bad.

Let’s break it down.

True to form, our favorite fictional show choir is in a situation that is about as absurd as the Broadway-obsessed Rachel Berry thinking that CATS is still open for business. New Directions has come to Nationals without a song or a set list and now they need to write a couple of hits in as many overstuffed hotel rooms. Brittany, Artie, and Puck offer up the ditty, “My Cup,” and there are enough eyes rolling around the room for som...

Music Review: Matthew Morrison, 'Matthew Morrison'

Matthew Morrison, "Matthew Morrison" (Mercury): Glee star Matthew Morrison's self-titled debut album is a guilty pleasure. It's not a CD that I'd admit I own, but it's one I do enjoy listening to.

Make no mistake about it, Morrison can sing; he spent some time as part of a boy band and has credits in several musicals to his name. I'm not a fan of the FOX series, but I loved his version of the Georgia Stitt classic "One Day More" on the 2007 compilation This Ordinary Thursday, so I figured his solo album might be a pleasant listen. It is: aside from the innuendos you're probably alrea...
