Cloudy with a Chance of Stars: See Katy Perry and 4 Other Celebs Give the Morning Weather

Originally posted 03/05/2014 03:45PM



Being a TV weatherman usually requires a degree in meteorology and several internships, but there's one type of person who gets to skip right to the front of the line in this competitive field – celebrities.

Katy Perry delighted viewers Wednesday when she appeared on Australian morning show Sunrise to promote her upcoming tour of the Oceanic nation, and in the process tried her hand at reading the country's weather.

Perry got through the segment with a reasonable amount of aplomb – like most Americans, she can pronounce "Sydney" and "Adelaide" with ease – though she ran into trouble when the forecast turned to Tasmania, mispronouncing the island's capital as "Hogwarts." (It's actually Hobart.)

Meet the BEGOTs: These Actors Are Going for Gold at the BAFTAs

Originally posted 02/13/2014 06:00PM

If an EGOT – the elusive combination of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony that only 11 individuals have ever claimed – is one of Hollywood's highest honors, then it stands to reason that a BEGOT (that's an EGOT plus a BAFTA, and yes we did just make it up) is an even more impressive accomplishment. It's one better, is it not?

By our count, a mere four people have ever completed a BEGOT, and shockingly, only two of them were Brits: Audrey Hepburn, John Gielgud, Mike Nichols and Whoopi Goldberg. Still, nearly every artist in Hollywood should aspire towards a BEGOT (once they hear about it, that is), and Sunday night's BAFTA Film Awards offer a number of artists the chance to check off the next box in the BEGOT checklist.

Below, see the five stars working on their BEGOTs at the 2014 BAFTAs. Only one of them is British, which just goes to show you that the BEGOTs belong to us all, guv'nah.

George Clooney, Jon Hamm Read Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

What do George Clooney, Matt Damon and Jon Hamm all have in common? No, not their status as PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive honorees – it's that Twitter is not their friend.

In his latest installment of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, Jimmy Kimmel gathered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jennifer Garner, Tom Hanks and other Monuments Men cast members to read messages from their less-than-positive Twitter followings. Insults include calling Clooney a "lumpy faced basterd" and referring to Rob Lowe as "skin cancer." Each star was dealt a blow to their psyche, none more so than Damon, who read a disparaging Tweet from frenemy Kimmel himself.
