Year of the Rabbit celebs: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Zac Efron

Rabbit ruled Kate Winslet. (Getty Images) People born in the Year of the Rabbit are reportedly articulate, talented and ambitious. Which may explain why so many Hollywood A-listers were born in the years associated with this Chinese zodiac animal: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Zac Efron, Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore, David Beckham -- to name just a few. But what significance will the sign have for babies due to be born between now and Jan. 22, 2012? Considering the number of celebs expecting bundles of joy in 2011 -- including Pink, Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Jewel, Marion Cotillard, Victoria Beckham, Jane Krakowski and Jennifer Connelly -- we thought it would be a good idea to do a little research....

Does George Lucas think the world will end in 2012?

George Lucas: Have Death Star, will travel? My incredulity meter is going way off the charts on this one, but apparently Seth Rogen had a recent encounter with George Lucas in which the "Star Wars" mastermind shared his theories about when the world will end. Which would be next year. Just fyi. The "Green Hornet" actor was reportedly meeting with Steven Speilberg when, in quotes attributed to Rogen, "George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real. He thinks it."...

The New Zodiac Signs: Three stars who should welcome a realignment

Mel Gibson: Does a new sign = a new man? What's the deal with the new zodiac signs? Should you change your sign or not? It's all so dang confusing. But, since the matter is up for debate, we picked three celebs -- completely at random, of course -- for astrological makeovers. Since their current signs aren't working out so well, we argue, why not take advantage of this chance to adopt a new horoscope and the attendant qualities?...

Peter Fonda finds dead body in car

Peter Fonda. (AP) Veteran actor Peter Fonda reportedly discovered a dead body in a car on Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard. The actor -- best remembered for his role in "Easy Rider" and as son of screen legend Henry Fonda and brother of fellow actor Jane -- called 911 on Wednesday after spotting a car parked on the side of the road. TMZ reports that Fonda got out of his car to check the situation and found a man slumped in the front seat. Police, again according to TMZ, are labeling the death a suicide and say the body had been in the car for at least three days prior to its discovery by Captain America Fonda. Sources: AP, TMZ...

James Franco takes on cultural juggernaut 'Three's Company'

One iteration of the 'Three's Company' cast: Don Knotts, Joyce DeWitt, Richard Kline, John Ritter, Suzanne Somers and Ann Wedgeworth. (Nick at Night) Apparently, nothing is sacred to James Franco. Or everything is. Either way, I'm okay with it because it results in him doing things like enrolling in four graduate degree programs simultaneously, volunteering himself as a guest star on "General Hospital," posing in drag and directing creatively-named short films. (You'll have to Google that last one to get the NSFW title.) His latest project? "Three's Company: The Drama," which is described in a press release from the Sundance Institute as "a multi-media examination of the classic '70s sitcom." The release goes on: "Television has undoubtedly shaped our world: our increased exposure to dramatic entertainment, the shapes of our houses, the shape of the time in our day. In this piece James Franco hopes to pull television from...

Marie Claire's Maura Kelly: Should she be fired for "fatty" comments?

A screengrab from Maura Kelly's now-defunct (but cached) Facebook fan page. Should Maura Kelly, the Marie Claire blogger at the center of a [expletive]-storm over a blog post in which she expressed her distate at watching fat people get affectionate on TV, lose her job? In case you missed the original story, Kelly drew fire earlier this week when she wrote on her Marie Claire blog that she would be, "grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other...I'd be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything." Kelly was making reference to the new CBS show "Mike & Molly," which features two plus-size leads who meet at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. But given the recent dismissal of Juan Williams from NPR for making derogatory comments about Muslims on the "Bill O'Reilly Show," should Kelly also get the...
