House of Lies's Kristen Bell and Don Cheadle want fans to know the truth: that they're alive and well.
The stars have taken to Twitter to assure folks that they're safe after a report surfaced claiming that gunfire broke out at a Los Angeles location where the Showtime series was shooting.
According to TMZ, the show was filming at a housing project in South Central Los Angeles Friday when shots were fired, the result of an alleged gang-related incident.

He's one popular birthday boy!
Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Stiller, Jimmy Kimmel, Tobey Maguire, Laura Dern, John Krasinski, Don Cheadle, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Isla Fisher, Samantha Ronson, Will Arnett, Malin Ackerman and Dax Shepard were among the celebs who headed to Jennifer Aniston's Bel Air mansion Saturday night as the actress threw her fiancé, Justin Theroux, a 42nd birthday bash.
The party also took place on the one-year anniversary of the couple's engagement. Though the party sparked rumors of a possible surprise wedding, guests dressed down and the atmosphere was casual.

A megalomaniacal terrorist unleashes a rash of bombings across the United States. Innocent people die. A nation reels in horror. No, these aren’t the latest headlines – they're the set-up of the latest Iron Man movie, already igniting controversy.
For some viewers, that plotline about a terrorist known as The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) cuts too closely to the Boston Marathon bombing allegedly carried out by the Tsarnaev brothers earlier this month. It certainly caused a hush to fall over the crowd at the film's glitzy Los Angeles premiere at the El Capitan Theatre last week.
The film's stars addressed the issue at a press conference last week, with Don Cheadle (who plays Col. James Rhodes) stressing that the film was finished well before the bombings earlier this month, and that there is no political agenda.
"The job of this film is to entertain," he said. "That's what we're hoping to do."

Don Cheadle was honored at the Los Angeles Film Festival Sunday night by actress Halle Berry, who gave a personal – and informative – speech about her fellow actor.
After congratulating Cheadle, 43, whom she affectionately calls "Che Che," on receiving the Spirit of Independence Award, Berry coyly told the audience which included Jennifer Beals, Julia Nixon, Illeanna Douglas, and Loretta Devine: "I'm here to tell you tonight what you don’t know about Don Cheadle."
In Halle Berry's own words, here are some fun facts about the Hotel Rwanda actor:

Don Cheadle nabbed an Oscar nomination for his role as hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina in 2004's critically acclaimed film Hotel Rwanda. But it was a recent trip to the country and neighboring states that made a lasting impression on Cheadle.

Critics may be universally praising Don Cheadle's performance in Hotel Rwanda, but don't ask the actor to watch himself in the film, or in any other. "All I can see is everything I'm doing wrong that is a sham and a fraud," Cheadle, 40, told the Los Angeles Times. "I look at it like, 'Ugh, Don, you missed that. You weren't there in that moment. You liar!' "
