Keanu Reeves Had Two Intruders at His Home in Three Days: Police

Kay-Paris Fernandes/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Keanu Reeves’ home was broken into twice in three days, police said.

ABC News station KABC-TV in Los Angeles has confirmed that the first incident occurred on Sept. 12, while the actor was there. The second occurred three days later.

Police responded on Sept. 12 to a radio call of a trespasser, whom they discovered was a woman in her 40s, the Los Angeles Police Department told KABC. She was held for a mental evaluation. At the time, Reeves was at home, police said.

Three days later, Reeves’ home was broken into yet again, this time by a different woman, who entered through an unlocked door while the actor was out. While inside, she took a shower in the actor’s bathroom, police said. The intruder was not arrested, but detained on a psychological hold instead.

Reeves has yet to comment on the break-ins, and a rep for the actor did not respond to a request for comment.

Hope Solo on Nude Photo Leak: ‘Beyond Bounds of Human Decency’

Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — U.S. Women’s National Team soccer goalie Hope Solo released a statement on her personal Facebook account to slam the hackers that recently leaked nude photos of her and other stars, saying the act “goes beyond the bounds of human decency.”

“It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs,” Solo wrote on Tuesday night. “This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy.”

The soccer star was one of many celebrities whose private photos were hacked and posted on the popular image-sharing site 4chan over Labor Day weekend.

Solo also addressed two counts of domestic violence charges against her stemming from an incident in June where she allegedly assaulted her sister and her 17-year-old nephew.

“In addition, while I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges. And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated,” Solo said.

Solo has pleaded not guilty.

Jenny McCarthy Is the Latest Victim of Celebrity Photo Hackers

ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) — Add Jenny McCarthy to the list of celebrities whose nude photos have turned up on the web.

However, McCarthy’s rep claims the raciest pictures are fake.

“Certain photos claiming to be hacked photos of Jenny McCarthy and posted to various websites are not McCarthy at all, but someone else, including the most explicit nude photos,” the rep told E! News in a statement Tuesday.

The rep goes on to say others photos are stills from her TV special on Epix earlier this year, Dirty, Sexy, Funny.

“A small number of photos are of McCarthy that were stolen from her hacked phone account,” the rep’s statement continued.

The statement goes on to say that representatives for the former host of The View “are reporting the theft to the FBI and contacting all websites posting the photos to demand the immediate removal of all personal and private photos of her, including nude photos.”

McCarthy hasn’t commented on the theft, but on Twitter, she didn’t seem to be too upset. “Good Tuesday Morning to all of u happy people out there. Xo,” she tweeted to her fans.

Emma Watson Threatened with Nude Photo Leak Following Gender Equality Speech

Mike Coppola/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Though Emma Watson has received the support of several of her Hollywood peers since she delivered a speech on gender equality at the United Nations last week, she’s also faced some backlash on the Internet.

Britain’s The Telegraph notes that members of 4chan have threatened to release nude photos of the Harry Potter star. They reportedly set up a website called “EmmaYouAreNext,” a reference to the ongoing celebrity hacking scandal that has victimized Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and others.

Watson does not appear to be backing down, though. On Tuesday, the 24-year-old actress and United Nations Women’s Goodwill Ambassador retweeted endorsements of the U.N.’s HeForShe gender equality movement from celebrities Logan Lerman, Chris Colfer, James Van Der Beek, Simon Pegg and Yoko Ono.

The HeForShe campaign calls on people to take action against all forms of violence and discrimination faced by women and girls.

Report: “Modern Family” Actress Obtains Restraining Order Against Ex-Boyfriend

ABC/Mitchell Haaseth(LOS ANGELES) — Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has obtained a temporary restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, who she claims abused her.

TMZ reports Matthew Prokop has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from the 23-year-old actress and her dog.

Hyland, who plays Haley Dunphy in the hit ABC comedy, alleged in court documents that Prokop pinned her against a car, called her an offensive term and choked her during an argument about her outfit last May. Hyland stated in her filing that she suffered injuries to her voice as a result. She also claimed, “His grip was so tight that I could not breathe or speak. I was scared and in fear for my life.”

Hyland said she later enlisted the help of her Modern Family co-star and onscreen mother, Julie Bowen, to break up with Prokop at her home. She alleged that when he arrived to the home and saw Bowen and others, he ran outside to the backyard, began screaming, and threw a lighter at Hyland.

Hyland further claimed that Prokop threatened to set fire to one of her homes, and suggested that her dog would be taken from her.

Hyland alleged that following their split, Prokop “relentlessly bombarded me with vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails including his own suicide threats.”

Hyland stated that Prokop entered a rehab facility in August and was released last Sunday. She said the director of the facility advised her to obtain a restraining order.

Hyland and Prokop split in August after five years of dating.

“The Voice” Recap: The Coaches Continue to Build Their Teams

Image Courtesy Trae Patton/NBC(LOS ANGELES) — The first week of the new Voice season continued Tuesday night with more blind auditions.

New coaches Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams again joined Adam Levine and Blake Shelton in the rotating chairs, as they added artists to their respective teams.

Here are the highlights from the two-hour episode:

DaNica Shirey, a stay-at-home mom, opened the show on a strong note, with her rendition of Jessie J’s “Big White Room.” Adam, Gwen and Pharrell all turned around. Adam told DaNica she has one of the best voices he’s heard in a long time. Pharrell compared her to a snake charmer because he was “allured” by her command of certain notes. He also joked that while Adam is fit, the “Happy” singer is scrawny yet knows what to do with DaNica’s voice. DaNica picked Pharrell.

Seventeen-year-old Joe Kirk of Nashville took on “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran. He had his choice of all four coaches. Pharrell accused Blake of using “Voice Jedi” by trying to bond with Joe over the Nashville connection. Blake responded by putting on a Pharrell-type hat. Adam marveled at how confident Joe was on the microphone. Gwen added that he had “crazy rhythm.” Joe went with Adam.

Reggae singer Menlik Zergabachew performed the Sublime hit “Santeria.” He chose Gwen over Blake.

Gwen and Blake competed for the next artist, too: 15-year-old Reagan James, who belted out the Ed Sheeran tune “Give Me Love.” Gwen lost this battle to Blake.

Taylor Phelan played The Neighbourhood’s “Sweater Weather” on his guitar, resulting in all four coaches pressing their buttons. Adam noted that Taylor was “Elvis-ing out with his feet.” Pharrell said it was as if the guitar was an extension of Taylor’s body. Blake said Taylor carried himself onstage much like OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder does. Taylor went with his gut and joined Team Pharrell.

Sugar Joans’ father is Joe Pizzulo, a singer for Sergio Mendes in the 1980s who also worked with Alice Cooper. She sang Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools.” At the last moment, Gwen and Blake turned around. Blake said Sugar has one of his favorite voices. He also told her he wants to duet with her on “Me and Mrs. Jones.” Alas, Sugar decided to go with Gwen instead.

Nashville resident Taylor Brashears, a cashier in a food truck alongside her brother, tackled Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough.” All of the coaches except for Gwen expressed interest in Taylor. After telling Taylor that it was in his heart to guide her career, Blake added her to his group.

Andy Cherry once had a record deal, and sought a second chance in the music biz. He covered “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears. No coach took a chance on him.

Maiya Sykes comes from a musical family. Her mom was a backup singer for Earth, Wind & Fire, Meat Loaf and Neil Diamond, and her dad is a saxophone player and singer. All four coaches quickly turned around after Maiya launched into Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.” Blake said Maiya has an excellent shot at winning the competition. Pharrell said Maiya showed a lot of conviction in her performance. Gwen argued she could teach Maiya fashion and how to bring out her own unique style. Maiya chose Pharrell.

NBC will air more blind auditions next Monday and Tuesday.

Naomi Watts Wishes She ‘Had More Kids, Started Younger’

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) — Naomi Watts has taken huge risks on and off the screen, but she tries to limit those risks to the workplace since becoming a parent.

“I’ve skydived. I went swimming with sharks that weren’t in cages. I went on safari, where you’re sitting with lions just five feet from you. And I was photographed [by Condé Nast Traveler] for King Kong standing on a gargoyle near the top of the Chrysler Building in New York City. I had a harness and a rope, but if you fall, you’re hanging [61 floors up]!” she told the October issue of More magazine. “But now that I have kids, I don’t want to do so many daredevily things anymore.”

Watts, 45, said her partner of nine years, Liev Schreiber, is the more courageous of the two of them when it comes to parenting their two sons, Sasha, 7, and Kai, 5.

“Liev has a lot more courage than me,” she told the magazine. “He’s always saying, ‘Let the kids do it. Take the training wheels off!’ My bit of fear balances him, and he balances my fear.”

One regret Watts has regarding her family is that it’s not bigger.

“I should have had more kids, started younger,” she told More.

Meanwhile, in her career, the actress is considered a risk-taker, though she doesn’t always feel like one.

“I don’t always feel like a person who’s full of courage,” she said. “Maybe in the workplace I have more courage than other areas of my life.”

That includes moving to Hollywood at age 25 to break into acting.

“It was a gigantic risk but, thankfully, I was young and naïve enough to just do it,” she said. “As you get older, you overthink and can talk yourself out of anything. It’s good to be a bit reckless and experimental.”

Watts’ big career risks have paid off. The two-time Oscar nominee has pushed herself to emotional and physical extremes in films such as 21 Grams, King Kong, The Impossible, and Diana, last year’s widely panned biopic about the British princess.

“We all know I’m not five-ten or have any resembling features of hers except blue eyes, and I don’t speak like her,” Watts told More. “It was going to be hard. People knew her too well or felt like they owned her. I was up against that.”

Now Watts is trying her hand at comedy with two new films, Birdman and St. Vincent, both out this month.

In the latter, she plays a pregnant Russian stripper opposite comic genius Bill Murray.

“I’d bust into Bill’s trailer and say [she adopts a thick Russian accent], ‘I need a drink! Gif me a drink!'” she recalled. “I had to stick with that character because, otherwise, my fear of being not worthy would take over.”

Ginnifer Goodwin Calls Her Husband Josh Dallas ‘My Knight in Shining Armor’

ABC/Todd Wawrychuk(LOS ANGELES) — Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas have had a busy few months!

After welcoming their son, Oliver, neither of the Once Upon a Time stars have gotten much rest.

“He also has not slept since mid-May. I’m always telling him, ‘You can sleep,’ but he won’t, he always helps,” Goodwin told Us Weekly. “He’s my knight in shining armor.”

Goodwin, 36, and Dallas, 32, met on the set of the ABC series and were married this past April.

Now back to work, the actress said they bring the baby with them.

“He has a trailer. It is a Star Wars trailer and it is on the lot and he comes with us every day because I have to see him every couple hours,” she told E! “We are in a very, very fortuitous position that we can bring our kid to work.”

Just don’t expect him to make a cameo.

“Absolutely not,” she said, when asked if the baby will follow in his parents’ footsteps. “We are going to gently nudge him in any direction but acting!”
