This Time, Kate Winslet's the Queen of the World

Kate Winslet, the actress who rocketed to fame as Rose in Titanic, taped an episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls recently.

She did some flying, and some climbing, and at one point, recreated a famous scene from the movie.

No, not the charcoal drawing one.

The one where she's at the bow of the boat, telling Jack that she's flying.

She does the same thing in this clip, only this time, she's leaning over a rope or a cable on the side of a mountain...

Prepare for an adventure made for the movies.

How Can There Be a New Dr. Seuss Book?

Dr. Seuss, the man behind "The Cat in the Hat," "Green Eggs & Ham" and so many other childhood classics, passed away almost 25 years ago.

So when you hear there's a "new" Dr. Seuss book, you sort of scratch your head, right?

Story is, the Doc wrote it in the late 1950s and tossed it into a box. Someone just found the book in the box, and the book in the box is now on the charts...

Sorry, sort of got into a rhythm there.

It's called "What Pet Should I Get?"

The folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live! thought maybe they could present the new old work in a more modern vein, so they invited Tyler the Creator to rap the words - dressed, for some reason, as the Cat in the Hat.

Watch it, and see if it pains you as much as it pains me.

Most Expensive Selfie Ever?

Okay, these stories keep popping up.

There's the woman taking the selfie with the lion that ends badly.

Then the woman taking the selfie with the bison that ends badly, but not as badly as the lion selfie.

And now this. A guy in San Diego decided he needed a selfie with a rattlesnake.

Go back and read that again.

Yes he did.

And yes, exactly what you thought would happen happened. The rattlesnake bit him. Not for any particular reason except that's what rattlesnakes do when you bother them.

So he ended up in the hospital, and reportedly used up two hospitals' supply of antivenom.

Which ended up costing him a whopping... well, just look at the bill.

"Are You Ready for This, Scully?"

Fans of The X-Files have been waiting for the return of The X-Files for years.

With the announcement that the show was returning to Fox in 2016, said fans went a little nutty.

Nutty that it's happening, and nutty that they have to wait until this coming January.

So this week, Fox gave the fans a little tease.

A 17-second tease, to be precise, about five of which feature Mulder and Scully.

Here you go. And try to contain yourself...

Keep Your Enemies Close

There's a lot of buzz about Johnny Depp's upcoming film, Black Mass, and there's a new trailer out for it.

He's playing Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters of our time, a kingpin in the Boston crime scene before becoming a fugitive for years.

Johnny's performance looks pretty intense, and he's surrounded by a pretty amazing supporting cast, not the least of whom are Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon.

Check it out.

All This Over a Stroller

So there's some controversy afoot about an ad for a high-end baby stroller company called Bugaboo.

It features a model in a pretty small running outfit - almost a barely-there swimmer's two-piece - pushing a stroller with her own two-year-old in it in front of her as she jogs.

Some folks are slamming the ad for promoting an unrealistic body image for moms.

Others opine that the model looks anorexic.

And not a word about the stroller. I can't imagine that was Bugaboo's intent.

Take a look at the picture. What do you think? Does it make sense to you, or not?

Happy Pottermas, Harry!

Today marks Harry Potter's 35th birthday, according to his creator, JK Rowling.

And what better way to celebrate the beginning of his 36th trip around the Sun than with a special greeting from his old friend, Ron Weasley.

Okay, it's not really Ron.

It's Simon Pegg, playing Ron, on The Tonight Show.

Actually, playing a drunken Weasley.

Enjoy anyway...

IS ONE PERSON RESPONSIBE FOR BEN AFFLECKS DIVORCE, AND A PERSON WHO WORKED FOR HIM!?

BEN AFFLECK HAS MOVED ON, APPARENTLY HE IS DATING A 28 YEAR OLD WHO WAS ORIGINALLY HIRED AS HIS KIDS NANNY! NOW THE INTIMACY DIDN'T START BETWEEN THESE TWO UNTIL BEN AND JEN WERE SEPERATED, AND WHEN JEN FOUND OUT SHE FIRED HER. (BENS REP SAYS ITS NOT TRUE AND HE MIGHT SUE THE MAGAZINE)

THERES NO DOUBT YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT CECIL THE LION AND THE MORON DENTIST, BUT CELEBRITIES REACTIONS TO THE STORY ARE WHATS MAKING IT TREND EVEN MORE
AND THE REACTIONS CONTINUE TO THE LION STORY.. IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE STORY A DENTIST PAID $55,000 TO KILL A LION. TWO GUIDES TOOK HIM OUT, LURED A PROTECTED LION OUT OF A PARK, SHOT IT, DECAPITATED IT AND TOOK ITS TRACKING COLLAR OFF.

NOW MY OPINION, THIS STORY REALLY IRRITATES ME, AND I GET REALLY EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT... THIS ISNT A PRO HUTNING ANTI HUNTING STORY.. WHATS WRONG IS THAT IF THIS GUY WAS SUCH AN EXPIERNCED HUNTER, WHY LURE A PROTECTED AND TAME LION OUT OF A PARK, SHOOT IT, THEN DECAPITATE IT TO TAKE ITS COLLAR OFF? LURING THE LION OUT SHOULDVE BEEN YOUR FIRST SIGN NOT TO DO IT! HE CLAIMED WHAT HE DID WASN'T ILLEGAL, IF IT WASN'T ILLEGAL WHY ARE YOU HIDING. YOUR PATHETIC.

NOW CELEBRITIES EVERYWHERE ARE VOICING THEIR OPINIONS
  • ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGER DOESN'T UNDERSTAND WHY SOME DENTIST PAID $55,000 TO HAVE SOME ZIMBABWE LOCALS LURE A PROTECTED LION OUT OF A PARK SO HE COULD KILL IT.. HE TWEETED "KILLING A LION ISNT BALLSY.. GOING INTO TO OCTAGON OR JOINING THE MILIARY THAT'S BALLSY"
  • JIMMY KIMMEL MADE SOMETHING POSITIVE OUT OF THE STORY… WHEN HE WAS REPORTING ON THE STORY, WHICH IF YOU DIDN'T SEE IT WAS SUPER EMOTIONAL, HE WAS HOLDING BACK TEARS, HE ASKED PEOPLE TO MAKE A DONATION TO OXFORDS WILDLIFE CONSERVATION RESEARCH UNIT .. THEYRE THE GROUP THAT TURNED CECIL INTO A CELEBRITY, WHO EQUIPPED HIM WITH THE TRACKING COLLAR. AND IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS MORE THAN 2,500 PEOPLE MADE DONATIONS TOTALING OVER $155,000
HERE ARE MORE REACTIONS FROM CELEBRITIES.

What Would You Do on a Plane?

Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski, stars of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, were sitting on a plane - at least it looks like they're on a plane - with the show's creator, Tina Fey.

Beyonce's "Flawless" came up on someone's playlist, so obviously, the three of them had to lip-sync to it.

I mean, wouldn't you?

It's summertime, so that means beach time.

For those without kids, no big deal.

For those with kids, you need a degree in project management to pull that off, and even that won't help.

Freelance writer Robyn Welling, a New York Times bestselling humorist, put together a fun little video that will hit home with any parent who's ever had to pack up the kids for a day at the beach.

 

Can you relate? Then follow Robyn on Twitter.
