Motivated by personal tragedy, former Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco turned her life around with diet and exercise.
In her new self-help book, To the Fullest: The Clean Up Your Act Plan to Lose Weight, Rejuvenate and Be the Best You Can Be, Bracco, 60, recalls how James Gandolfini's untimely death from a heart attack in 2013 was a wake-up call.
The death of her parents, too, weighed heavily on the actress; in 2011, they died within nine days of each other. (Bracco, who played Dr. Jennifer Melfi on The Sopranos, writes in To the Fullest that Dominic Chianese, who played Uncle Junior in the HBO mob drama, sang at their funerals.)

It shouldn't matter whether Tony Soprano lived or died after the controversial 2007 finale of The Sopranos.
That's the latest from David Chase, the creator of the classic HBO drama, who was compelled to issue a statement after Vox quoted him as saying the New Jersey mobster lived after the screen went black in the series ender.
On Wednesday, Vox wrote a long tone poem about the infamous finale and finished it off with an eye-opening quote from Chase about whether Tony, played by the late James Gandolfini, was actually dead.

While he seems like the very embodiment of "cool," Justin Timberlake doesn't use that word to describe himself.
"Listen, I'm not cool," the singer, dancer and actor says in the "Men of The Year" issue of GQ. "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad."
Timberlake, 32, goes on to explain that not being "cool," often means doing the opposite of what's expected of him, like playing a high-stakes gambler in Runner Runner alongside Ben Affleck or appearing in sketches on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon every night for Timberweek.

If you weren't watching the Emmy Awards Sunday night, we don't know what you were doing. (Actually, we do because we almost flipped the channel to Breaking Bad, too.)
Sure, we were disappointed when host Neil Patrick Harris chose tap over twerk, but there was plenty of action (and lots of dance) packed into the three-hour show.

There was an outcry when the Emmy producers announced that they were paying special tribute during Sunday's telecast to five people the industry had lost over the past year.
The rumblings were so loud about what some saw as favoritism that even Emmys host Neil Patrick Harris stepped into the fray to explain the reasoning.
"I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don't, and it turns it into this weird moment," he told Access Hollywood. "And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition."
