Kevin Spacey OK with Former President Clinton Dropping “House of Cards” Spoilers

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Former President Bill Clinton may have dropped a couple of House of Cards spoilers at a recent benefit concert, but the lead star of the Netflix series, Kevin Spacey, has no problem with that.

Clinton and Spacey were among the top names who attended Sting’s Rainforest Benefit Concert in New York City last Thursday night.

As he addressed the crowd, the 42nd U.S. president poked fun at Spacey’s character on House of Cards, Frank Underwood. He joked, “When I was president, people accused me of murder all the time! Made a show of investigating it! Spacey’s president for 15 minutes, and he gets away with murder!”

That last line contains two spoilers from the second season of House of Cards, which premiered in February: Spacey killing Kate Mara’s journalist character, Zoe Barnes, and his character making the jump from vice president to president.

Spacey normally discourages people from discussing spoilers, but he makes an exception in Clinton’s case. He pointed out to ABC News Radio that the event was not televised. He added, “If he wants to be the spoiler-in-chief that’s entirely up to him. He’s a good man, it was great of him to have shown up, and we had some fun on stage together.”

Much like he did at the Rainforest Benefit Concert, Spacey imitated Clinton: “I love that show because 99 percent of what they do in that show, it’s real. And the one percent they got wrong, you could never get an education bill passed that fast.”

Aside from House of Cards, you’ll soon be able to catch Spacey in the documentary NOW: in the Wings on a World Stage. He collaborated with his American Beauty director, Sam Mendes, on the film, which chronicles their touring production of the Shakespeare tragedy Richard III.

NOW: in the Wings on a World Stage will screen in select theaters and be made available for download on May 2. You can learn more about the film at KevinSpacey.com.

Watch Emma Stone Make Andrew Garfield Eat His Words About What’s Feminine

Andreas Rentz/Getty Images for Sony Pictures(NEW YORK) — Emma Stone certainly keeps Andrew Garfield on his toes.

During a recent Q&A about their new film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Stone challenged her real-life boyfriend when he called sewing “feminine.”

Asked by a child how Spider-Man got his costume, Garfield, 30, replied that he made it after taking sewing and needlepoint classes.

“It’s kind of a feminine thing to do,” he added, “but he really kind of made a very masculine costume.”

Stone, 25, piped up, asking, “It’s feminine, how?” — prompting Garfield to respond, “It’s amazing how you took that as an insult.”

However, he immediately began to backpedal, and even threw in a personal story about his family.

“I would say that femininity is about more delicacy and precision and detail work and craftsmanship — like my mother, she’s an amazing craftsman. She in fact made my first Spider-Man costume when I was three. So I use it as a compliment. To compliment the feminine not just in women but in men as well. We all have feminine in us, young men.”

Tori Spelling’s Husband Says Sex Life ‘Wasn’t Fantastic’ in Preview for New Show

Lifetime TV(NEW YORK) — If you enjoy watching television shows that make you cringe, you may want to tune in to Tori Spelling’s latest reality series.

True Tori, premiering Tuesday night on Lifetime at 10 p.m. Eastern time, follows Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott, as they work on their marriage following his well-documented infidelity. There will be some awkward moments along the way, as evidenced in a recently-released sneak peek.

In the clip, we see Spelling and McDermott attending a therapy session that was held on April 9. When the former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress says they had a great relationship and sex life, McDermott counters, “We would have sex once every two weeks. It wasn’t fantastic.”

The counselor tries to set him straight, saying, “Dean, your expectations of what a marriage is supposed to be like sexually, it’s like a fairy tale.”

As Spelling cries that McDermott seems unsatisfied with her, he admits, “I’m insatiable. Sex was an escape, just like drugs and alcohol.”

Spelling asks him, referring to his mistress, “Why her?” He responds, “I wasn’t attracted to her. It was, like, a warm body.”

McDermott says that cheating on his wife is his “worst nightmare.” But when Spelling adds, “Or that you got caught,” McDermott gives a long pause, then admits, “I don’t know.”

In a new post on her website, Spelling says she filmed the show in order to “set the record straight” and tell her own story.

She concedes, “At the moment, I don’t know if it will have a happy ending. But I need to get my voice back, and this is my way of doing that.”

After reports surfaced that McDermott cheated on Spelling, he announced in January that he had entered a treatment center to address what he described at the time as “health and personal issues.”

He said, “I am truly sorry for the mistakes I have made and for the pain I’ve caused my family.”

Spelling and McDermott married in 2006. They have four children together.

Timothy White/E!(LOS ANGELES) — Kris and Bruce Jenner have split up, but that didn’t stop Kris and her daughters from acknowledging the estranged couple’s 23rd wedding anniversary.

Kris posted a picture on Instagram of her and Bruce from years earlier with the caption, “Happy Anniversary to one of the most amazing men I know!!!! I love you, Wow 23 years!!!!! #love #weareofficiallyvintage.”

Kris’ daughter Khloé Kardashian, who was raised by Bruce from the age of 5, took to Instagram with a post of her own that read, “Happy anniversary to my mommy and my 2nd daddy!! I love you guys! 23 years and 10 kids later.” It was accompanied by a picture from the couple’s 1991 wedding.

Kim Kardashian, 33, also acknowledged the anniversary by posting a couple of pictures of Bruce and Kris. One shows the couple early in their relationship along with the hashtag, “#vintage.” The other shows the two relaxing on the beach.

Katy Perry Faces Fan in Katy Perry Trivia…and Loses

ABC/Jimmy Kimmel Live(LOS ANGELES) — Those Katy Perry trivia questions are tough.

Especially for Perry.

The pop starlet appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, facing off in a trivia contest against a superfan — they’re called “Katy Kats” — named Emily.

“How well do you feel that you know Katy Perry?” Kimmel asked Perry.

“Very well,” she responded. “I’m ready to play me.”

Emily was ready to play, too. She had a Perry-themed wall constructed in her home, but later took it down at her boyfriend’s urging.

“At least you have a boyfriend,” Katy quipped.

“Yeah,” Emily said, smiling.

“Who Knows Katy?” began with a personal question, the name of Katy’s parents. Emily responded first — Keith and Mary. Correct! Emily answered the second question too, identifying Kelly Clarkson as the American Idol contestant Perry wrote two songs for.

Perry lowered her head in disbelief, stunned by her challenger’s success. When Kimmel asked the next question, Perry tapped the buzzer with her head, recalling the first film soundtrack to use one of her songs.

“Travelinghood of the Sister Pants,” she said. What?! She tried again. “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” OK, close enough. Perry tied things up by describing what she did to earn a sixth-grade detention.

“Humping a tree,” she said, a bemused smile on her face.

Both of the competitors missed the next question about Perry’s Twitter followers — it’s 52.4 million — before Emily took off.

Grammy nominations? Eleven.

Katy’s three fragrances? Purr, Meow! and Killer Queen.

Perry bounced back by recalling her dinner from the night before (In-N-Out Burger). But it wasn’t enough to top Emily, who earned an autographed pillow with the win — as well as a hug from her idol.

“Congratulations,” Kimmel told Emily. “You know Katy better.”

Former “Ice Road Truckers” Star Accused of Kidnapping, Threatening Prostitute

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A former star of the History network series Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads is facing kidnapping and extortion charges in connection with an alleged incident he had with a Las Vegas prostitute last December.

According to an arrest report obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Zickuhr gave a prostitute he hired who had an alias of “Snow White” — her birth name is Lisa Cadeau — his ATM card to withdraw payment for her services.

However, Zickuhr claimed, she withdrew more than the agreed-upon amount. She visited his apartment, where he allegedly punched her, threatened her, and locked her inside a closet. He asked Cadeau for a phone number of someone who could bring him the money he said he was owed, according to the report.

The report says Cadeau gave Zickuhr the phone number of a Las Vegas police officer she knew. He called the number and said that if he did not receive $1,000, he would take the woman to Mexico and kill her.

Long story short, he was arrested, but not before he allegedly forced Cadeau to jump out of a second-story window, causing her injuries to her face and arms.

Zickuhr, who was charged with kidnapping, extortion and coercion, is due in court on May 6.

Zickuhr was featured on Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads in 2011.

“New Girl” Star Max Greenfield Talks Life as Married Father

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — On New Girl, Max Greenfield plays the likable character Schmidt, a popular role that’s earned the actor Emmy and Golden Globe nominations.

Prepare to like Greenfield, 33, that much more.

No matter how much acclaim or recognition he gets, the funnyman said at home, he knows who’s in charge and who’s most important — his wife Tess and daughter Lilly.

“I’ve been married for so long now, I don’t even remember dating,” Greenfield, 33, joked about tying the knot in 2008 to Tess Sanchez, a Fox casting executive.

“She’s the boss!” he said of his powerful counterpart. “Yeah, she’s the boss. She keeps me in the ground, as opposed to grounded,” he joked.

Greenfield added that his wife was impressed with his recent work in About Alex, a film that debuted last week at the Tribeca Film Festival.

“[My wife] did turn to me after seeing this film and said, ‘I feel like you gave a strong performance,’” he said. “I thought, ‘I must be really good in this! She’s never done that!’”

Greenfield called the “heavy” movie a “rewarding” change from his usual comedy.

“You do New Girl, you play a character like Schmidt, you crave as an actor afterwards to just do something different,” he said. “Then you look at what material is out there and felt very fortunate to find this and that they would have me.”

The versatile actor added that his 4-year-old daughter Lilly is simply “the best.”

“She’s the best, man. She keeps a lot of it grounded,” he said. “You come home, you’re like ‘Whatever, let’s go hang out!’”

He added that she still doesn’t fully understand how big of a deal her father is.

“I don’t know that she fully gets it,” he said. “She knows that I’m on a TV show, she’ll be like ‘Daddy you play Schmidt’ There’s a big part of me that’s very proud of it and goes ‘Daddy’s really happy.’ but another part, that’s like ‘Just stay away from that as long as you can.’ But she seems unfazed by it.”

Julia Roberts Comments on Death of Half-Sister

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — For the first time since the death of her half-sister in February, comments from Julia Roberts following the tragedy have surfaced.

Roberts spoke to Wall Street Journal Magazine in late February about Nancy Motes’ death from a possible drug overdose, and the interview was released Monday.

“It’s just heartbreak,” she told Wall Street Journal Magazine, tearing up. “It’s only been 20 days. There aren’t words to explain what any of us have been through in these last 20 days. It’s hour by hour some days, but you just keep looking ahead.”

Motes was found dead in Los Angeles on Feb. 9 at the age of 37.

The Oscar winner added, “You don’t want anything bad to happen to anyone, but there are so many tragic, painful, inexplicable things in the world. But [as with] any situation of challenge and despair, we must find a way, as a family. It’s so hard to formulate a sentence about it outside the weepy huddle of my family.”

Roberts, 46, who spoke to the magazine as part of her promotion for her May 25 HBO movie The Normal Heart, added candid details about her personal life with husband Daniel Moder and her children Hazel and Phinnaeus, 9, and Henry, 5.

“By the time we had kids, I had accomplished things and felt secure about that part of my life,” she said. “I was so joyful moving into the family phase of my life in a sincere way.”

She also joked that when her twins arrived in 2004, she wanted to be with them as much as possible.

“For a long time they weren’t even aware I had a job because I was home so much,” she added.
