Gerard Depardieu - arguably, France's best and best-known actor - admitted recently that he drinks a wee bit.

"I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles" of wine "per day," he said. "But I'm never totally drunk."

On the other hand, he's never totally sober. Or coherent. Or intelligible.

This is a guy who's had quintuple bypass surgery too.

And he's had some interesting brushes with infamy. Here he is last year on The Graham Norton Show on BBC, talking about making an unauthorized pit stop on a commercial airliner. If nothing else, he found a use for his empties...

Lindsay Lohan was spotted out on the town in London earlier this week with E.L. James, the author of the "50 Shades of Grey" series.

Lindsay must have been running late for their date, because she showed up wearing lingerie. No time to change, apparently.



E.L is the one in the photo wearing the mask.

t's not clear if that's a nod to her books, or her embarrassment of being caught in public with Lindsay...

Here's a clip from this weekend's Miss America competition.

Miss Massachusetts - Lauren Kuhn - rearranged "Valse Dramatic" and played it absolutely beautifully in the talent competition.

Sure, the talent competition only counts for 30% of the vote for Miss America. But watch this performance...



... and then remember it lost out to a girl sitting cross-legged on the stage, singing "Happy" and flipping over a big red cup.

Mayim Bialik, who portrayed Blossom in her younger days and now plays Amy, Sheldon's "friend that's a girl but not a girlfriend" on The Big Bang Theory is not afraid of speaking her mind.

Earlie this week, she slammed Ariana Grande for a billboard that was too sexual.

Now she's telling everyone why she doesn't like Disney's Frozen.
  • The plot, in her mind, is "about the identification of a woman based on her desire and search to meet a man."
  • It teaches girls "not to trust those nasty scheming conniving men."
  • The animation of the female characters is out of sync with reality, featuring "tiny waists, ample busts, and huge heads. They look like dolls. They don't look like the same species as the male characters even!"
Don't hold back, Mayim. Tell us what you really think!

George is an Australian goldfish.

That's not a breed - it's where he lives.

His owner says he's ten years old, and he had a tumor growing on his head.

According to the vet who treated him - yes, there's a vet who treats goldfish - says that George was having trouble eating and getting around and was "getting bullied by the other fish."

Bullied might be a strong word. The other fish did keep looking at him, opening and closing their mouths.

Microsurgery was performed, at a cost of about $200. Reports say that George did very well indeed.

By the way, $200 could get you between 600 and 800 goldfish at your local pet retailer...

To tell the truth, when I heard Tommy Chong was on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, I wasn't expecting much.

And in his debut performance, Tommy did way better than I ever thought he would.

Nice touch to have Cheech Marin, his comedy partner, drive him onto the stage in a low-rider that did a little dancing of its own while Tommy and his dance partner did a cha-cha.

Not too bad for a guy in his 70s. Heck, not too bad for a guy in his 40s!

Ben Affleck - aka, the newest Batman - fessed up to some past sins in a new interview with Details magazine.

For instance, he got caught counting cards in a Las Vegas casino. Not so bad that he got tossed out, but enough so they diverted him from the blackjack table.

"I knew with blackjack that there's a way you can improve your odds," Ben said. "And so I started trying to learn. And then I just got to a point in my life where I'm like, 'If I'm going to do something, I'm going to try and do it really well.'"

So it's not really cheating if you're just trying hard to do well.

Ben also admits that while he was prepping for and shooting Gone Girl, he spent a good deal of time working on being puffy and hungover, because that's how his character was described in the book upon which the movie was based.

His director was very impressed. "It was six months of real dedication to being hungover. It was extremely method."

Not really an excuse when you get pulled over by the cops though, huh? "No, really, officer, I'm not drunk or hungover. I'm method-acting!"

Okay, you're feeling a little low.

Work's got you down, it's the middle of the week, the weekend's in sight, but still...

You sure could use a little pick-me-up.

All you need is a big ol' dog, a garden hose and little girl with a tremendous laugh.

Play this video clip once, twice, three times - as many times as you need. It won't be long before you're smiling and ready to face the rest of the day, the rest of the week, the rest of the month.

If it doesn't work, have someone check your pulse...

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg got married just a bit more than two weeks ago, and already, Jenny says she lost her wedding ring.


She visited Good Day NY yesterday and explained that she and her hubby had been in a hotel room and she had to remove the ring.

"It's a little hard to get romantic with diamonds on your hand," Jenny said.

So she took it off and put it on the room service table. When room service came back, they collected the tray and now the ring is gone.

No word on whether she and Donnie were still in the bed when the ring and dirty dishes were collected.

But, she's not horribly upset. "If you're gonna lose your wedding ring, you should lose it that way."

No one's seen Donnie in a while. I wonder if he's scouring the dumpsters at the hotel?

Sometimes, it's not really clear what Elisabeth Hasselbeck is thinking...

In a tweet yesterday, she managed to wrap three scandals together: the one involivng Ray Rice and the NFL; the one involving the assualt on the US Embassy in Benghazi; and the one involving the IRS's alleged targeting of conservative groups. Is she suggesting that people are not calling for transparecny in all three? Or that people who are complaining about the NFL have more power than the others?

Or maybe she's just playing that game they used to play on Sesame Street: "One of These Things Just Doesn't Belong Here."

And in this case, maybe it's Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
