Shailene Woodley Almost Broke Her Nose While Filming “Insurgent”

Lionsgate/Summit(NEW YORK) -- Shailene Woodley is set to kick some more butt in Insurgent, the second film in the The Divergent Series, but the action-filled scenes in the sci-fi thriller also took their toll on the actress."The first movie we got banged up a lot. This movie, we didn't. There wasn't anything too intense, like little bumps and bruises," she said on Monday's Live with Kelly and Michael, before admitting that she banged up her nose.She added of her injury, "a little bit, but not too bad. It was just like a little crunchy, a little crunchy, crunch. We thought it was broken, but it wasn't. So it's all good."Woodley is excited for fans to see the sequel to the 2014 film.

"So this film picks up where the last film left off. So it's post...sort of a civil war break-out within their society," she explained. "And Tris in this movie is struggling with PTSD and so she's grieving the loss of her parents, and sort of being witness to this genocide of sorts while also needing to find the tyrannical leader to take her out in order to restore peace within the civilization."The Divergent Series: Insurgent, also starring Theo James, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet, hits theaters Friday.

Katy Perry Appears in Controversial Russell Brand Doc, Super Bowl Halftime Doc

Katy Perry Appears in Controversial Russell Brand Doc, Super Bowl Halftime Doc

ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) — Katy Perry appears in two new documentaries: one which gives more insight into the breakdown of her marriage, and another that gives more insight into the creation of her Super Bowl halftime show.Sports Business Daily reports that the NFL is shopping around a 90-minute documentary on the making of Katy's show, with an eye towards it airing in late April.  It's in discussions with CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC to show the doc, which started shooting in October, around the time Katy had her first creative meeting about halftime.  Among the 100 hours of footage they captured: Katy pacing in the bathroom at the University of Phoenix Stadium, waiting for the first half of the game to end, and a backstage look at the famous dancing sharks.Meanwhile, Katy is also seen in BRAND: A Second Coming, a documentary about her ex-husband, British comedian Russell Brand.  Brand made headlines when he bailed out hours before a scheduled appearance at the South by Southwest Festival, where the film was to premiere, because he found it too uncomfortable to watch. 

He wrote in a lengthy essay, "My life was hard enough the first time round and going through it again was painful and sad."According to the Daily Beast, the film shows that at one point in their brief marriage, Brand became disenchanted with the trappings of celebrity and traveled to Africa, where an encounter with some native children changed his perspective.  Upon his return, he and Katy sat for an interview, and as Brand ponders the meaning of money and fame, Katy says, "I think you’re a genius and you make me look good, and that’s why I picked you.” At the end of the interview, according to the Daily Beast, Katy also makes a crude reference to her "control" over a certain female body part. Later, Brand is seen commenting on why the marriage failed, noting, "We were going in different directions. Possibly opposite directions.”It's worth noting that the dissolution of Katy and Brand's marriage was first shown on film in Katy's 2012 concert documentary Part of Me, where she's seen crying backstage after Brand texts her to tell her the marriage is over.Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Justin Bieber Gets Roasted

Justin Bieber Gets Roasted

Courtesy of Comedy Central(LOS ANGELES) — Justin Bieber faced the flames Saturday night, for the taping of his Comedy Central roast, and nothing was off limits.In his opening remarks, host Kevin Hart, dressed as a preacher, asked the crowd to “Belieb in a man who has the voice and the driving skills of Stevie Wonder.” Hart proclaimed that they were going to do to Bieber "what his parents and the legal system should have done a long time ago: give him the ass-whooping” he deserved.As expected, Bieber’s former girlfriend, Selena Gomez, was referenced in a lot of jokes. Comedian Jeffrey Ross told the crowd that Gomez “wanted to be here, but she’s dating men now.”Several others were far less polite, and Bieber was caught on camera laughing hysterically at some of the nastier Selena swipes. Asked backstage after the roast if he was bothered by any of the Selena stuff, the singer seem unconcerned. “There was no holding back,” he said. “So I mean, it was whatever.”And when things went dark, they got really dark, with several jokes about Martha Stewart owning slaves, and references to Bieber’s mom and abortion.  Bieber's mom was in the crowd.There were also a few not very well received ISIS jokes, including one from Snoop Dogg, who told the singer, “Justin, you release so many horrible videos you should change your name to Vanilla ISIS.”But the ones that made Justin cringe the most had to do with a certain Fast and Furious star who died in a car crash in 2013. “I mean there was a lot of offensive jokes tonight,” Bieber said backstage. “I didn’t particularly like the Paul Walker jokes.”But Bieber had no problem with the shots directed at him, and when asked afterwards by ABC Radio which roaster he liked the most, the singer replied, "I thought Snoop did a really good job."There were A LOT of jokes about Bieber’s masculinity and sexuality.At the end of the almost four-hour roast, Bieber got in a few zingers of his own.  He said the price of being a super famous pop star with $200 million in the bank is “a bunch of has-beens calling you a lesbian for two hours.”Bieber then cut the comedy and got serious, apologizing to his fans. “I turned a lot of people off over the past few years, but I know I can still turn out good music and turn everything around,” swore the singer. “I lost some of my best qualities, and for that, I am sorry.”Asked backstage why he felt the need to cut the jokes and speak from the heart, Bieber explained “I felt like this was a moment for me to really show people where I’m at in my life right now. And that’s where I’m at. I’m at a moment of change and...like I’ve said before, I’ve done a lot of things that I’m not proud of, but this is a new day. We’re turning a new leaf here.”So did he have fun? When it was all over, Bieber confessed to the media, “I was actually worried, and I don’t know why I was so worried. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.”The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs March 30.

Kerry Washington Explains Why She’s Notoriously Private About Personal Life

Kerry Washington Explains Why She’s Notoriously Private About Personal Life

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- Kerry Washington has been meticulous about keeping her private life out of the public eye. She even married in a secret ceremony and barely announced the birth of her first child. It's all been intentional: The Scandal star said it's because she over-shared in the past. "Earlier in my career I was much more super-sharey," she told Girls creator Lena Dunham in a profile for Marie Claire magazine. "There were moments when I wanted to process things that were happening to me more privately, and I didn't have the space to do it, because once you let people in, they're in and you don't get to say, 'Oh, I want this for myself.'" That's why Washington married former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha in a secret ceremony in Blaine County, Idaho, in 2013, and never officially announced her pregnancy or the birth of her daughter, Isabelle Amarachi, in April 2014. News of baby Isabelle only came after TMZ obtained a birth certificate two weeks later. Washington told the magazine, on which she graces the cover, that she hopes her daughter learns from her mistakes. "I just want [Isabelle] to know that she's heard. Really heard, because I feel like that is what we all really want," she explained. "When I think about any of the missteps in my life that I've made, all of which I'm grateful for, it's because I just so wanted to be truly seen and heard for who I am and was afraid I wasn't or wouldn't be. I see you, I hear you, I'm with you as you are." The Marie Claire article isn't the only time Washington and Dunham have collaborated recently. Dunham is set to guest star on the March 19 episode of ABC's Scandal.

“Fashion Police” Shakeup: Stars React to Kathy Griffin’s Departure

Photo by Michael Buckner/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kathy Griffin has announced that she is leaving Fashion Police after just seven episodes -- and many of her celebrity friends seem to be behind her. "I could not be more proud of you," her former Fashion Police co-star Kelly Osbourne tweeted. "You have my love and support always." The comedian announced Thursday that she was leaving the E! series because "my style does not fit with the creative direction of the show." Her departure will be the second that the E! series has faced in the past few weeks. Osbourne announced late last month that she was leaving the show "to pursue other opportunities." Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski remain co-hosts of Fashion Police, and Melissa Rivers is still on board as the show's executive producer. Here is some of the celebrity reaction to Griffin's departure:

“Home” Stars Surprise Texas Woman With Movie Premiere, Donation

“Home” Stars Surprise Texas Woman With Movie Premiere, Donation

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- A Texas woman who started a food pantry in her hometown using food from her own kitchen was surprised on Friday by the stars of the new animated movie Home. Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jim Parsons appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America and told the woman, Cheryl Jackson, she would get a red carpet premiere of their new movie in her hometown of Plano, Texas. “I just want to say that we are so amazed by the work that you've been doing in your community," Rihanna said. "We are inspired and we're so proud of you." "We want to bring Home to your hometown," the singer said. "We're coming. We cannot wait to meet you, girl. Red carpet, baby." Jackson - who screamed, cried and fanned her face at the news she won the "'GMA' Brings 'Home' to Your Hometown" contest - started her own food pantry in Plano in 2008. She named the pantry after her mother, Minnie, and, in the early days, when she donated her own food, had the mission to just serve as many people as she could. “If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one,” Jackson said. Today, Minnie’s Food Pantry is a family-run nonprofit that has fed 4 million meals to the community. “Even though they’re coming for food, they need love, they need support,” Jackson’s son, Robert Jackson, said of the people the pantry serves. Jackson was at work Friday morning when she got the surprise. She thought she was being interviewed as a contest finalist. Instead, the woman nicknamed “Action” because of all she does, walked out to a red carpet filled with her family, friends and the people she serves. When she saw the stars of "Home" on a monitor, Jackson started screaming and pointing her finger at them. "They're coming here," she screamed. In addition to the movie premiere, Parsons announced another surprise for Jackson. "You have also won, because of your good work, a donation to feed 25,000 people from DreamWorks Animation," the actor said. Jackson's red carpet premiere of Home will take place in Plano March 17. The movie hits theaters nationwide March 27.

Robert Downey Jr. Gives Real Bionic Arm to 7-Year-Old Boy

Photo by Mike Marsland/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Robert Downey Jr. doesn't just play a superhero on the silver screen. He's also doing good deeds in real life. Appearing as Tony Stark, his Iron Man alter ego, Downey presented a real bionic arm to Alex, a 7-year-old boy who loves superheroes and was born with a partially developed right arm. Albert Manero, a college student who builds and donates low-cost, 3-D printed bionic limbs to kids around the world, put the two together as part of Microsoft's Collective Project. And their meeting was captured on video, which Downey posted on Twitter Friday. "Honored to present a bionic #IronMan arm to Alex through @MSOneNote’s #CollectiveProject," Downey tweeted. "Check the bowtie. #dapper." In the video, you can see Downey greeting young Alex in a dapper red bow tie. As the pair sit down to check out the bionic arms Downey brought along in metal cases marked Stark Industries, Alex is asked if he knows who Downey is. "Iron Man," he replies without hesitation, causing everyone, including Downey, to break into laughter. Asked if he knows Downey's name, Alex replies, "Robert," to which Downey responds, "Great!" The pair then put on and compare their bionic arms. "I'm having a technical glitch," Downey tells Alex in the video, as the light on his Iron Man arm continually flashes. "Half the time I design one of these, it winds up breaking on me. But what I do is I keep working on it, kind of like you're working on it with Albert." "He keeps working and working until he gets it right," Alex replies. Later, Downey praises Albert. "Albert has made it so affordable," the actor said. "I'm probably going to start farming out a lot of my tech work to Albert, too. I feel like he could cut down the price point on one of my suits, which is I guess about now a billion and a half dollars." Check out the cute video below:

Sean Penn Reveals His Obsession With “The Bachelor”

Sean Penn Reveals His Obsession With “The Bachelor”

ABC/Craig Sjodin(NEW YORK) -- Sean Penn and Charlize Theron seem very much in love. However, they do argue over one very important issue: whether to fast forward through the slower parts of The Bachelor. "I don't really want to hear the conversations. I want to know the decisions. Is he gonna decide on this one or this one?" Penn said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "And I wanna see somebody cry, and then see somebody get ecstatic and then see them cry." Penn, 54, is promoting his film, The Gunman, but in his spare time, he's been keeping up with the ABC dating reality series. He also expressed his opinion on how the next season of The Bachelorette should go. "It's gonna have to be Kaitlyn," he said, though Kimmel refused to choose a side. "I still can't believe they got Matthew McConaughey to be the bachelor and call himself something different," he added.

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) -- In 2008, Shania Twain split from her ex-husband, Mutt Lange, after she discovered he was having an affair with her then-best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. During an appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, the singer revealed what she would say if she came face to face with her former pal. "I wish I'd never met you," she said. "That would be it." Twain, 49, who just announced her final tour, eventually found love with Thiébaud's ex-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, whom she married in 2011. "I think there are just some people in life you would say, 'I would wish I hadn't met this person or I would have been better off not ever knowing that person,'" she added. "But I can't say I would be better off because I think I learned a lot from all of that. I don't regret it!"

See “Gone With the Wind” Set Inside Old Georgia Barn

See “Gone With the Wind” Set Inside Old Georgia Barn

stanfram/iStock/Thinkstock(HENRY COUNTY, Georgia) -- Classic film fans will have to travel to the South to get a look at one of the most famous Hollywood movie sets of all time. Tara, the plantation from the 1939 film Gone with the Wind, isn't on display on a Hollywood back-lot, but is actually broken down into thousands of pieces of lumber and tucked away inside a Georgia barn. Peter Bonner, the owner of a historical tour company in Henry County, Georgia, about 30 miles south of Atlanta, came across the set a year or two ago and has been working with about 20 volunteers to restore it. The set of the Civil War movie was brought from Los Angeles to Atlanta in 1959, Bonner said, and then purchased by a Georgia senator's wife who stored the pieces in her old barn. "The facade is in pieces," Bonner told ABC News on Friday. "When they moved it here they didn't move the whole facade. It was framing covering by plywood." There were plans to build a Gone with the Wind museum in Atlanta, but "everything failed," Bonner said, and "it got forgotten in the barn." Bonner, who has been running Gone with the Wind tours for years, said he found the pieces of lumber "in a barn piled up among old junk. We had to haul all that out of there. It had been dumped on the Tara facade." The film, starring Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler, is remembered for its sweeping views of Scarlett's beautiful Southern mansion and the Tara plantation. The recovered set includes the window Hattie McDaniel -- who played Mammy -- famously stuck her head out of, Bonner said. Bonner plans to leave the memorabilia at the barn, but he wants to construct a new building to provide the set with the proper display it deserves. "It's important to me," Bonner said. "I like history and I want things to be preserved."

Nick Lachey Reveals Meaning Behind His Daughter’s Name

Charles Sykes/Bravo(NEW YORK) -- Even before Nick and Vanessa Lachey welcomed their daughter in January, they knew they wanted to name her something sentimental.The new dad said that baby Brooklyn was named for New York City, where he lives part-time."Truth of the matter is, she was conceived here, so we wanted to pay homage to New York and Manhattan didn't have the same ring," Lachey told ABC News. "We wanted to make it special. You don't want to sacrifice the ring of a name, but if it has meaning, it makes it extra-special."Lachey, 41, has a lot on his plate. In addition to hosting Big Morning Buzz on VH1, he just opened a bar in his hometown of Cincinnati and he's working as a spokesperson for Twix. "[Free candy] is a perk," he said with a laugh. "I'm a big fan!"He's also working hard to raise his two kids. Camden, he said, has embraced the role of big brother -- buoyed by a gift that his little sister gave him when he visited her in the hospital."It's a transition for anyone to embrace the idea of someone coming in to take their attention away, but he's good," Lachey said. "He's very protective. If she's crying, he wants to make sure we know she's crying and find out why. He's very concerned. His older brother instincts have kicked in!"

Robert Herjavec Talks “Dancing with the Stars” Training, “Shark Tank”

ABC/Aaron Poole(LOS ANGELES) -- Robert Herjavec has always been compassionate toward the entrepreneurs who appear on Shark Tank. However, since he joined Dancing with the Stars, his respect for them has grown."I'll have a greater appreciation for how people feel when they come out in front of us.

Since he began prepping for the ABC dancing series a few weeks ago, Herjavec said he's already seen changes in his body."I’m at the gym the other day and I’m looking at the mirror and I see myself and I’m like 'Wow, what a great butt. ...Oh!

I didn't know that people had this many muscles, and every one of them is sore."Paired with Kym Johnson ("She's an angel because she puts up with me!" he gushed), Herjavec explained that now, his days start at 5 a.m. Because so much of his business is based on the East coast, he catches up on email and works for three or four hours and then heads to the gym to meet Johnson. After several hours (and sometimes, several injuries), Herjavec goes back to work. He passes out at midnight or 1 a.m."I keep forgetting to eat, I'm so focused!" he said with a laugh. "But sharks never sleep."
