John Cusack apologises for anti-Semitic tweet

He shared a meme, since deleted, of a large hand with a Star of David on its wrist, oppressing a group of people.

A caption on it read: "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticise."

The saying, often misattributed to the French philosopher Voltaire, was in fact spoken by white nationalist Kevin Strom.

Cusack added his own comment, "follow the money", to the meme, before later deleting his post after it attracted criticism.

Jason Momoa says he's from New Zealand

"I just need citizenship and we're good," he told Newshub.

His blockbuster juggernaut Aquaman is about to flood cinemas here - and all he can talk about is New Zealand.

He's already expressed his love for Kiwi culture with a ferocious haka for the Las Angeles premiere of Aquaman.

"Obviously I am very close to it," he says.

"I've made my own haka for my family. My children were out there with me, we based the character around Polynesian culture. I thought it would be honouring a lot of people by doing it."

The rise of Daniel Kaluuya: From Skins to Oscar nominee

We're only two months into 2018, but the 28-year-old actor already has a lot to celebrate.

Black Panther has broken the box office and he's also in the running for an Oscar in a few weeks' time, for his role in 2016's Get Out.

Speaking to the BFI, he says it took four years to get on the waiting list to join the community theatre school in north London.

House of Cards falls after Kevin Spacey molestation allegation - report

The 58-year-old apologised after Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp, now aged 46, revealed he was sexually assaulted at Spacey's apartment in 1986, when the pair were both working on Broadway play Precious Sons.

Rapp says Spacey, then 26, picked him up and carried him to bed after a party at the residence, in what he believed was an attempt to "seduce" him. He is then alleged to have lay on top of Rapp, leaving him trying - ultimately successfully - to "squirm away".

Long time actor, Harry Dean Stanton dies

Stanton passed away Friday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Stanton, whose gaunt, worn looks were more recognizable to many than his name, appeared in more than 100 films and 50 television shows, including the films "Alien" and "Repo Man" and the series "Big Love" and the recent version of "Twin Peaks."

For many years, Stanton played lesser-billed characters. In 1984, he got his first part as a leading man in "Paris, Texas," which won a host of awards, including the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Actor quits Hellboy after whitewashing criticism

The Deadpool star, 34, said he did not know the race of Major Ben Daimio when he accepted the part in the comic book adaptation.

He said he was stepping down "so the role can be cast appropriately".

Rebel Wilson wins defamation case

In an at-times bizarre Victorian Supreme Court trial, the 37-year-old Australian sued over eight articles which appeared in Woman's Day, Women's Weekly, OK Magazine and New Weekly in 2015.

The articles said Wilson had publicly lied about her age, real name and upbringing, and alleged she had added a "touch of Hollywood" to her backstory.

She returned to Melbourne from Los Angeles to give evidence at the three-week trial in which she made jokes, rapped an Academy Award acceptance speech she claims to have hallucinated years earlier, and broke down in tears several times.
