Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer were shocked by Angus T. Jones' meltdown.
The 19-year-old actor - who stars on Two And A Half Men with Ashton and John - launched a tirade against the sitcom calling it "filth" in a video with his church pastor and while Jon was surprised, he felt living through former co-star Charlie Sheen's falling out with creator Chuck Lorre left him better prepared for it than Ashton.
"It is surreal to be part of several internet s**t storms. When the latest one happened Ashton came up to me and he looked like he had seen a ghost and he was like, 'Did you hear about Angus?' and I was like, 'He is ok?' He said, 'Sort of,' and he showed me the video. And as I said having become a veteran of the internet s**t storm afterward I just looked at Ashton and said, 'Well do you think he still wants to go in on the crew gift?' It's just been one after the other. My life has taken a lot of strange turns. Mostly I'm just glad everybody is still alive," Jon said.
Hugh Grant is a "big pain in the ass." The Music and Lyrics actor was blasted by The Daily Show host Jon Stewart for being rude to his staff and Jon says he will never be invited back.
Speaking at a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival in New Jersey recently, Jon said, "He's giving everyone s**t the whole time, and he's a big pain in the ass. And we've had dictators on the show." Jon also revealed Hugh complained about the clip of his flop movie Did You Hear About The Morgans? which was played on the show, asking "What is that clip? It's a terrible clip" to which the host replied, "Well, then make a better f***ing movie."
Jack White has hit out at reality TV shows. The former White Stripes frontman has criticized people who appear on talent shows insisting they are only interested in instant fame and he claims the format dilutes the work of credible artists.
In an interview with the new issue of Britain's Esquire magazine, he said, "The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator, 'Hey, I'm a guy just like you. I like beer, a football game.' Especially in reality television, you'll see what people will go so far as to make a fool out of themselves just to prove that."
The 37-year-old musician went on to criticize Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood, 82, who recently appeared on E! fly-on-the-wall series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company with his wife Dina: "I don't want to see a reality show about Michelangelo. You know, Clint Eastwood is doing one with his family and it's such a disappointment. There's no reason to put yourself in a position that makes things completely un-special."
Angus T. Jones is "grateful for the extraordinary opportunity" to star in Two And A Half Men.
The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.
"I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours. While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family. Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
Miley Cyrus was "shocked" by Two And A Half Men's Angus T. Jones' rant about the show. The 19-year-old actor - who makes $350,000 for playing Jake Harper in the sitcom - called the show "filth" and begged viewers to stop watching and guest star Miley was surprised by her on-screen love interest's comments.
"Miley was shocked just like everyone else who saw the video. But Miley doesn't judge anyone and she of course wants Angus and everyone who works on the show to be happy and continue doing the show because she's a huge fan and she likes guest appearing. She had the time of her life when she worked with Angus and she even thinks he's hot and incredibly sweet. She even had fun hanging on set and filming with Ashton [Kutcher] and Jon [Cryer]," a source said.
Sharon Osbourne has slammed NBC for being ungracious.
The 59-year-old presenter - who quit her role on America's Got Talent because she claims the network fired her son Jack Osbourne via email from reality show Stars Earn Stripes following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS) - wants to be more selective about who she works with now she is getting older.
"I'm going to be 60 in October. So I'm at the age where I really want to work with people who I want to. And I felt that the network were not gracious. They handled the situation horribly. They've been backtracking, they've been not gracious with me at all," she said, explaining her decision to quit America's Got Talent.
Sharon admitted she is upset at leaving the show but she doesn't want to be a "hypocrite." Speaking on CBS This Morning, she said, "I love my principles and my son more [than America's Got Talent.] I would be a hypocrite if I went, 'Hi guys, how are you doing today?' I'm not that person. They don't like me, and I don't like them. They're stuck with me until next week. They don't want to be, believe me. But I'm going to turn up, and I'm going to do my final show and then I'm going to say 'bye.'"
Ryan O'Neal has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey.
The 70-year-old actor and his Oscar winning daughter Tatum starred in reality TV show Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals on Oprah's OWN network, and Ryan has blamed the media mogul for low ratings. When he was asked if he was worried that the reality show would tarnish his reputation, he told gossip website TMZ, "No because nobody saw it ... I don't know if Oprah saw it."
Victoria Jackson, best-known for her 6-year stint on SNL, summed Glee’s “Original Song” episode up with one word: “Sickening!” She accused the producers of the show of “shoving the gay thing down our throats” and making a “mockery of Christians.”
“Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an ‘alternate lifestyle’! There I said it!” Jackson’s comments appear in her column at WorldNetDaily.
Jackson was best-known on Saturday Night Live for her ditzy, blonde characters and high-pitched voice. In recent years, she has been politically active and strongly outspoken against liberal candidates and leftist media coverage. Perhaps ironically, she is a strong supporter of Fox News (which is owned by Fox Entertainment Group, which owns 20th Century Fox Television... which distributes and produces Glee).

Charlie Sheen isn’t finished with the Two and Half Men producers -- not by a long shot. The troubled actor engaged in a well-publicized rant against the minds behind his CBS show in which he called Chuck Lorre a “stupid, stupid little man,” along with a few other things.
CBS immediately canceled production of the show for the reminder of the season, and potentially all eternity. Sheen, who is currently in the Bahamas, turned to TMZ again to respond to the news. In an open letter, he said Lorre “tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me.”

The caribou-killing episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska is still making waves in the media, despite Palin’s accusatory, attempted Facebook damage control. Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who recently penned The Social Network, pulled no punches in a recent rant published by The Huffington Post. He called the reality politician “deranged” and accused her of making “snuff films.”
"Like 95% of the people I know, I don't have a visceral (look it up) problem eating meat or wearing a belt," he wrote. "But like absolutely everybody I know, I don't relish the idea of torturing animals,” Sorkin fired.
