"Black-ish" Star Anthony Anderson Credits 'Vegan-ish' Choices for 47-Pound Weight Loss


ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Anthony Anderson, the star of the new ABC series Black-ish, credits “healthier choices” for his stunning 47-pound weight loss.

The 44-year-old actor and self-described “husky” man said he never had a problem with his size, even at his heaviest weight of 270 pounds.

“I’ve always been confident,” he told People.

But, after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 13 years ago, he started making small changes to his diet.

“I started eating healthier and in moderation, but I was still sort of eating the same stuff that I’d been eating all my life,” he told the magazine.

That changed in 2008 when he was cast in Law & Order.

“I decided to make a drastic change,” Anderson said. “I got more serious about my health and appearance – not from a vanity standpoint. I just started making healthier choices.”

He upped his game again before starting Black-ish.

“Six weeks ago, I moved to a plant-based diet, he told People. “I’m vegan-ish – I’m not going to send anything back to the kitchen if some butter or cream found its way onto the plate.”

Though the father of two doesn’t plan to be vegan-ish forever, he likes the results he’s seen so far.

“This is what I’m supposed to look like,”  he said.

Ben Affleck Reveals How Much the Batsuit Cost for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"


Warner Bros.(NEW YORK) -- Like most people would be, Ben Affleck was pretty impressed with his batsuit.

However, even he couldn't convince the powers that be to let him keep it.

"I asked them, 'So, how about maybe taking the suit home at the end of this thing?'" the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star said during a visit to Live with Kelly and Michael. "They were like, 'For $100,000 we could!'"

Affleck, 42, explained that "a lot goes into it," which is why it's such a pricey item. In fact, because every element of the film is meant to be perfect, the actor explained that it's forced him to hit the gym a little more often than usual.

"Audiences have an increasing expectation," he said. "You see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just like, you think, 'How is that even possible?!' So, exercising is as much of the job now in some ways as the rest of it."

Wal-Mart Blames Tracy Morgan After Fatal Crash


ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) -- Wal-Mart is pointing fingers, saying Tracy Morgan and his fellow passengers should've worn seatbelts, in a formal response to the lawsuit over the June crash on the New Jersey Turnpike involving one of its drivers.

In court papers, Wal-Mart broadly denied allegations of recklessness and negligence when the vehicle Morgan and his friends were riding in was struck by Wal-Mart truck driver Kevin Roper’s rig and said the plaintiffs’ injuries were caused “by failure to wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device.”

Had Morgan and the others been wearing seatbelts Wal-Mart said, “all or a portion of the injuries could have been diminished or minimized.”

Morgan was seriously injured in the crash. He suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs, among other injuries. His friend, comedian James McNair, died.

Wal-Mart declined to answer a specific allegation that its driver, Roper, was fatigued. The company said it can’t because it’s also involved in the National Transportation Safety Board investigation.

But Wal-Mart did say, “the plaintiffs’ alleged damages may have been caused by third parties over whom Wal-Mart had no control.”

Amanda Bynes Arrested on DUI Charge


Neilson Barnard/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Amanda Bynes has been arrested for alleged DUI, ABC News has confirmed.

The California Highway Patrol confirmed that the actress was arrested at 4:10 a.m. on Sunday and charged with a misdemeanor. She was booked by the Los Angeles Police Department at a station in Van Nuys, California at 7 a.m. and held on $15,000 bail. Bynes was released that day at 12:44 p.m. on her own recognizance.

Last year was a troubling one for the 28-year-old actress. She was arrested in May 2013 for allegedly throwing a bong out of her New York City apartment window, though the case was dismissed in June 2014. Later in 2013, she entered rehab after being detained for a mental evaluation when she was involved in a disturbance in Thousand Oaks, California. Afterwards, her mother acted as her conservator, though it was not clear if she still was functioning in that role.

Things seemed to be improving for Bynes, who left rehab in December and, shortly thereafter, enrolled in fashion school.

"She's doing extremely well. Her primary focus is bonding with her family and being a student," her attorney, Tamar Arminak, told People magazine in April, adding that Bynes was on "zero medication."

People also reported that, around that time, Bynes got her driver's license back following earlier legal troubles, including a 2012 DUI arrest. The magazine added that this past February the actress pleaded no contest to a lesser alcohol-related offense in her DUI case to avoid jail time. As a result, she was placed on three-years probation and had to attend a three-month alcohol education course and pay fines.

Bynes is due in court on this new charge on October 23.

Michael Strahan Reveals He'll Be in "Magic Mike XXL"


ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- Michael Strahan stunned viewers on Live with Kelly and Michael back in 2012 by breaking out into his very own stripper dance for Channing Tatum, who was promoting Magic Mike at the time.

Well, it seems for Strahan showing off his dance moves has paid off. On Monday, the former NFL player announced that he will be appearing in Magic Mike XXL.

"I'm getting ready to do something that's making me nervous," he said Monday. "I'm about to do something that started as a joke on the show. ...I decided to reenact some of [Tatum's] movie. So then he was messing around with me and wrote me into the next Magic Mike XXL movie."

Although his co-host Kelly Ripa didn't believe him, Strahan insisted his initial strip tease was a joke not an audition.

"That was a joke! And then everytime Channing would come here, he would go, 'Are you ready?' even when we weren't on camera. And I would go, 'I stay ready! If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready,'" he explained. 

Denying he was on a diet to prepare for his role, Strahan said he's ready regardless. "No, no, no. I'm not on a diet. See, I'm slim here but I'm telling you the muscles under this jacket are about to explode!" he said, laughing.

Strahan will join Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Jada Pinkett Smith in the film. Earlier this month, Magic Mike XXL director Gregory Jacobs announced Matthew McConaughey won't be reprising his role as Dallas in the forthcoming sequel.

Magic Mike XXL will strut into theaters on July 1, 2015.

George Clooney Marries Amal Alamuddin in Civil Ceremony


PIERRE TEYSSOT/AFP/Getty Images(VENICE, Italy) -- George Clooney tied the knot -- again -- to his wife Amal Alamuddin during a civil ceremony in Italy Monday.

The ceremony at the Ca' Farsetti Palace in Venice was short, lasting just about 12 minutes. The couple arrived at the palace on their boat, the "Amore," and both looked happy while wearing their wedding bands.

The Oscar-winner, 53, and his now wife, 36, had also been married during a private ceremony Saturday for friends and family at the Aman Canal Grande Venice Hotel.

As for Monday's venue, the Ca' Farsetti is a palace facing the Canal Grande and boasts one of the best views in all of Italy. It's also close to the Rialto Bridge.

Clooney and Alamuddin took part in Monday's legal ceremony in order to make the marriage legal. Italian law stipulates that you have to sign the register at a local town hall in order for the marriage to be valid.

It's 'Movie Night' on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday Night


ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Have your popcorn ready on Monday night, because Dancing with the Stars is going to the movies.

The 11 remaining couples will dance to songs from their favorite movies. Lea Thompson's most popular acting credit is Back to the Future, so it's no surprise that her performance will be inspired by the classic 1980s film. But she feels some of her other movies could have worked just as well.

Thompson tells ABC News Radio, "I do have a lot of movies that people really like. We could have done Some Kind of Wonderful, or the controversial Red Dawn with my Russian." She was referring to her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev.

What else can you expect on Dancing with the Stars' "movie night"? Comedian Tommy Chong is planning a dance inspired by Scent of a Woman, actress Janel Parrish is working on a jazz routine based on West Side Story, and fashion designer Betsey Johnson will recreate a scene from Ghost.

An A-list movie star will be on hand to serve as a guest judge: Kevin Hart. Celebrity contestant Alfonso Ribeiro is looking forward to Hart's commentary, though he doesn't expect the Ride Along actor to critique each competitor's technique.

Ribeiro tells ABC News Radio, "I think what he's going to judge is the fun of it all, and probably what he sees from a fan point of view."

Dancing with the Stars airs on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern time.

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Jennifer Lopez is apparently okay following a fender-bender in Malibu, California, on Saturday, but she's still pretty upset about the incident.

The 45-year-old American Idol judge posted a photo on Instagram of herself and pal, actress Leah Remini, in a car with the caption, "Sitting at a light, Riding high right before some drunk fool rear ended us in my new whip!!!" She added, "Thank god everyone ok!!!"

Police tell TMZ that Remini, 44, was driving J-Lo's car with the singer and her two kids along the Pacific Coast Highway when they stopped at a light.

TMZ reports either Lopez or Remini called 911 and told cops a driver in a small pickup had rear-ended them and fled the scene.

According to the report, the driver of the pickup was located a short distance away and was arrested for DUI and hit and run.

No injuries were reported.

Nick Lachey Returns as Host of VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live"


Miller Mobley/VH1(NEW YORK) -- Nick Lachey returns as host of VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live.  The 98 Degrees singer told ABC News Radio his morning show stands out from the rest.

"I think the biggest thing for me that sets us apart is that we have live music every day and you know that makes sense being on VH1," he explained. "And certainly that's special to me being a musician to be able to feature both established artists like Pharrell Williams, who was on last season, Neon Trees, Sam Smith, but also feature some up and coming artists who people may not necessarily be as familiar with."

Big Morning Buzz Live
airs out of Total Request Live studios in Times Square in New York City. Lachey said the location is so important to the show.

"Times Square is almost a character on our show. And we make it a point to go out into the square every day [and] interact with the people who are there," he said. "You've got kind of a cross section of New Yorkers and tourists and young and old and there's cowboys and underwear and all kinds of crazy stuff. It brings the spirit of New York into the show."

Lachey is getting a new permanent co-host this season, comedian Michelle Buteau, who has guest co-hosted previously.

"I adore her," Lachey said of his new side kick. "[She's] one of the funniest people that I've ever been around, just quick as she can be, [and] obviously hilarious. She's definitely going to keep me on my toes."

VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live premieres Monday at 9 a.m. Eastern time.

"Saturday Night Live" Returns with New Faces for Its 40th Season


NBC (NEW YORK) -- There were a couple of "firsts" on the 40th-season premiere of NBC's Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

It marked the first appearance of new SNL featured player Pete Davidson. The 20-year-old comedian took part in a memorable bit on "Weekend Update," leading a pretty raunchy discussion about a sex act.

"Weekend Update" also unveiled its new anchor: Michael Che, who was named Cecily Strong's replacement earlier this month. Che, who was a writer on the show last season, joined Colin Jost at the desk.  

Former SNL star Darrell Hammond made his debut as the show's announcer. He took over the role from the late Don Pardo, who passed away in August.

Guardians of the Galaxy actor Chris Pratt hosted the season premiere, and Ariana Grande was the musical guest.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the ratings were on par with that of last May's season finale, but were down from the 2013 season premiere in the advertiser-coveted 18- to 49-year-old demographic.

Clooney Wedding Celebration Continues in Venice


PVS/GC Images(VENICE, Italy) -- George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are expected to make their weekend wedding official Monday with a civil ceremony in the Venice town hall. It was expected to take place between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. local time -- or 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Eastern.

The newlyweds were expected to travel from the Cipriani Hotel down the famous city's Grand Canal to the Aman Hotel where they were married, and from there to the town hall, which is across the waterway.

The couple had dinner Sunday night with approximately 100 guests at the Granaries of the Republic, according to People magazine. The venue is part of the Belmond Hotel Cipriani, where many of the guests were staying.

Clooney's rep confirmed to ABC News over the weekend that the actor and the British-Lebanese human rights lawyer wed in a private ceremony in the Italian city on Saturday. They got engaged in April.

Speaking to AFP on Sunday, Clooney's new father-in-law called the wedding "more than perfect." Ramzi Alamuddin added that the wedding was "very good news among the bad news we are living now," referring to the current unrest in the Middle East.

TMZ
claims that the wedding guests were asked to leave their cellphones in their hotel room. They were provided with cameras with which they could take pictures, but the cameras had a code associated with them that allows Clooney's camp to keep tabs on all of the snapshots, just in case there are any leaks.

The guest list for the wedding reportedly included Matt Damon, Bono, John Krasinski and his wife Emily Blunt, and Cindy Crawford and her husband Rande Gerber.
