Elle Macpherson Reveals Her Beauty Tips and Tricks

Photo by Stuart C. Wilson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Supermodel Elle Macpherson has graced the cover of countless magazines, including a record five times on Sports Illustrated.

Now 50, the model who became known as “the body” is showing that she’s still got it: On Tuesday, Macpherson tweeted a photo of herself looking lean and toned in a bikini.

ABC News’ Sara Haines asked Macpherson about her beauty tips and tricks.

“You know, when you laugh it changes everything — it changes your spirit and the way people receive you,” Macpherson said.

She added that she prefers an “alkaline diet” consisting mostly of “vegetables, a little bit of fish, not much protein, no coffee, alcohol.”

The 6-foot-tall Australian also swears by exfoliating, moisturizing every day and sleeping for at least eight hours.

“One of the biggest beauty tips — and I know it’s a cliché — is I drink three liters of water a day,” she said.

As for her workout regimen? Macpherson said she does not go to the gym.

“I’m Australian and I’ve always done a lot of sport, whether it be surfing or running or hiking, road biking…it’s not really just about making sure you look thin but it’s actually that you enjoy doing,” she said.

In addition to her storied modeling career, Macpherson is a businesswoman and designer. She has just launched a new line of intimates called “The Body” with retailer JCPenney.

Macpherson said she is designing the line for “every woman.”

“I think today women choose lingerie because…it’s about feeling feminine, feeling sexy and feeling comfortable in your body,” she said.

George Clooney Discusses Feud with “Daily Mail”

ABC/Randy Holmes(NEW YORK) — George Clooney couldn’t resist gloating when it came to discussing how he got the Daily Mail to apologize to him.

Clooney told Variety on Friday, “It’s just fun to slap those bad guys every once in a while, knock ‘em around.”

The Daily Mail published a story earlier this month claiming that Clooney’s future mother-in-law objected to his upcoming marriage to Amal Alamuddin for religious reasons. However, the British tabloid pulled the article and apologized after Clooney wrote an op-ed in USA Today saying the article was completely fabricated.

Clooney said he doesn’t go after every tabloid for every false story, but this time he felt a line was crossed. He explained, “That’s why you pick your fights at a tabloid. Every day they write things that aren’t true, but every once in a while they write something that is actually dangerous to your family, and it’s probably not true. And that’s the one you pick.”

He said of the Daily Mail, “I would sit with my friends and we’d just go, ‘So they just sat at a computer and just went, “OK, this is what I’m gonna say today.’” I mean, literally, because you just go, ‘there isn’t literally an element of truth in this.’ You just laugh, and let it go. I’m used to it after all these years. But the thing that bothers me is how much the Daily Mail is now bleeding into American press and becoming a source for some pretty legitimate newspapers. So that’s the thing that worries me.”

Though the Daily Mail issued an apology, Clooney refused to accept its mea culpa, writing in a second USA Today op-ed piece the report was a “premeditated lie.”

On a happier note, Clooney offered Variety this thought on his engagement: “I’m marrying up.”

“Treme” Star Rob Brown Settles Racial Profiling Suit Against Macy’s, New York City

iStock Editorial/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Rob Brown, best known for his role as trumpet player Delmond Lambreaux on the HBO series Treme, is settling his racial profiling lawsuits against Macy’s and the City of New York, according to the New York Daily News.

In court papers obtained by the newspaper, Manhattan Federal Judge Lorna Schofield writes, “The court has been informed that the parties have reached a settlement in principle.”

The 30-year-old actor claimed he was handcuffed, “paraded” through the Macy’s flagship store in New York City’s Herald Square, and detained in June of last year after being accused of using a fake credit card to buy his mother a $1,300 watch.

In his complaint, Brown alleged false imprisonment, negligent training and civil rights violations. He was seeking unspecified money damages and a court order forcing Macy’s and the NYPD to stop the alleged practice of targeting minorities who shop at high-end stores.

A spokeswoman for Macy’s tells the Daily News, “The lawsuits by various plaintiffs who alleged racial profiling by Macy’s have been settled in principle. We are making no further comment.”

The spokeswoman adds, “Our company strictly prohibits discrimination of any kind and has zero tolerance for racial profiling.”

A lawyer for the city says, “A settlement has been reached in principle, but the details are still being finalized.”

Brown’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, confirmed the report, but declined to comment on the terms of the settlement.

Adam Levine Marries Supermodel Behati Prinsloo

Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images for The Weinstein Company(LOS ANGELES) — It’s official — Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo are married.

The rocker tied the knot with the Victoria’s Secret model on Saturday at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, according to E! News.

Prinsloo’s bridesmaids included fellow model Coco Rocha, according to E! News. In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that guests donate to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

They’ll spend their honeymoon in South Africa, reports E! News.

After dating a slew of supermodels before Prinsloo, the Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach popped the question last July in Los Angeles.

Earlier this summer, Levine told Live with Kelly and Michael that he got a little “woozy” when he asked Prinsloo to be his wife.

“You can’t be confident about it,” he said. “I’m a confident person, but I got on that knee and everything changed immediately.”

He said he even lost his balance and got down on both knees, not just one.

Prinsloo said “yes” and maybe it was because of the ring Levine picked out for her.

“[The ring is] from the 1930s. It’s vintage and he picked it out,” the model told ABC News last year.

Levine, 35, and Prinsloo, 25, started dating in 2012.

Actor James Garner Dead at 86

Mark Mainz/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — James Garner, the actor whose easy charm and winking style helped re-define both the TV Western and detective genres, died Saturday at his California home. He was 86.

Garner first gained fame in the late 1950s on the TV comedy series Maverick. At a time when traditional Westerns were a staple of primetime TV fare, Garner’s wisecracking Bret Maverick — a gambler who’d rather run than fight but who could outdraw most gunfighters — was a tremendous hit, and made Garner a star.

Garner left Maverick after three seasons and built a film career, starring in both comedies and dramas, including the classic 1963 war drama The Great Escape and two hit romantic comedies opposite Doris Day.

In 1974, Garner returned to television in the comedy-drama The Rockford Files. Garner’s take on Jim Rockford, a Los Angeles detective who lived with his father in a run-down mobile home and drove a Pontiac Firebird, was an even bigger hit than Maverick, airing for six seasons and earning Garner a best actor Emmy in 1977. Like Maverick did with Westerns, The Rockford Files in many ways redefined the TV private detective show, and paved the way for similar hits, such as Magnum P.I.

Garner continued to switch between TV and film in his later years, and was nominated for an Oscar in 1985 for starring opposite Sally Field in the romantic comedy Murphy’s Romance. His later films included 1994′s Maverick, with Mel Gibson playing the title role and Garner starring as his father. Garner also appeared in 2000′s Space Cowboys opposite Clint Eastwood, and 2004′s The Notebook, and had a role on the TV sitcom 8 Simple Rules.

Garner’s autobiography, The Garner Files: A Memoir, was published in 2011. In 2005, Garner received the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award.

“American Ninja Warrior” Finalist Kacy Catanzaro Is Shocked By Fame

Nobody was more surprised than she was.

It’s amazing. My followers have skyrocketed 30,000 plus more in just a couple of days.”

Catanzaro, who appeared on the show once before, blew away viewers by mastering each obstacle of the show’s grueling course. Though she doesn’t know what the finals have in store, she feels ready for whatever comes her way.

No matter what happens in the future, the lifelong gymnast is happy to have inspired so many fans with her performance thus far.

Casey Kasem’s Body Is Missing, Daughter Says

Michael Tullberg/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — The late Casey Kasem’s body is missing, more than a month after the radio icon’s death, according to his daughter.

A spokesperson for Kerri Kasem confirmed to ABC News that the legend’s adult children have yet to see his body. Casey Kasem died on June 15 at 82 years old after suffering from a form of dementia. An autopsy has also not been performed yet, the family said.

Jean Kasem, the radio personality’s second wife, had been embroiled in a conflict with his children from a previous marriage over her husband’s medical care for months before he died. She collected the body within 72 hours of his death.

Kerri Kasem was informed Thursday that Casey Kasem’s body was no longer at the mortuary, where it remained for a month.

Kerri and two more of Kasem’s adult children fought Jean in court for control of his health care leading up to his death. Early last month, a judge ruled that his care would be in the control of Kerri, not Jean. Shortly after, he was moved to hospice.

“This is the most difficult decision that a judge or an attorney can make. Mr. Kasem is dying and Mr. Kasem has expressed his desire to die peacefully and in comfort,” Troy Martin, an attorney for Kerri Kasem told ABC News in June.

A rep for Jean Kasem has yet to respond to a request for comment.
