Whatever happened to Q'orianka Kilcher -- you know, the actress who played Pocahontas in "The New World"? On Wednesday, Park Police identified Kilcher, 20, as the woman they arrested Tuesday after she tied herself to a White House fence while her mother covered her in black paint. The two were protesting a visit by Peru's president (Kilcher's dad is a Peruvian Indian) -- something about oil and land rights in the country. The actress, who filmed her last movie "Princess Ka'iulani" two years ago, was charged in D.C. Superior Court with unlawful entry; her mom is accused of destruction of public property.
George W. Bush launched his own Facebook page Wednesday. The 43rd president, gearing up for his book tour this fall, listed his busy schedule ("President Bush has remained active") and gained thousands of fans in just a few hours. And there's a new Twitter account with his name, although the company has not yet verified it as Bush's official site.
