- A Los Angeles court has granted Jennifer Aniston a restraining order against a man who allegedly traveled from Pennsylvania hoping to get some face time with the actress. Court filings say the man, Jason R. Peyton, was found with a roll of duct tape, a sharp object, and love letters addressed to the actress. The court granted Aniston a temporary restraining order on July 20 after police first detained Peyton, but now it's set in stone -- he'll have to stay away from Aniston and refrain from contacting her for the next three years.

-After two years of marriage to talk-show host and former "American Idol" judge Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi is finally switching over to her spouse's surname. In a petition filed Friday the actress, 37, asked a Los Angeles court to legally change her name to Portia Lee James DeGeneres, People reports.
