--Helen Mirren won an Oscar for her portrayal of Elizabeth II in The Queen, but the 65-year-old actress isn't as interested in the real life royals.

I hope [Prince William and Kate Middleton] will also do an absolutely private wedding just for them." [CNN]

--Newlywed LeAnn Rimes might be blissfully married, but she's not happy with the "double standard" against women in the country music industry.

And if a woman did it, you were never accepted or forgiven. But if it was a guy, it was just their life… It's quite interesting to have to navigate those waters as a woman in this business."
