Legendary actor Peter O'Toole announced yesterday that he is retiring. The actor released a statement declaring that "it is time for me to chuck in the sponge. The heart for it has gone out of me: it won’t come back." The eight-time Best Actor nominee was probably best known for his roles in Lawrence of Arabia, The Lion in Winter and Goodbye, Mr. Chips.
Rumors are swirling around Sofia Vergara and a new ring she's been wearing on her left hand. The actress has been celebrating her 40th birthday at a resort in Mexico accompanied by her on-and-off-again boyfriend Nick Loeb. A picture was posted on Twitter of the Modern Family star sporting a big diamond ring on her left hand, and that got the engagement speculations started. A rep for the actress told Peopleenespanol.com that she is not currently engaged and that the ring was just a loaner from a jeweler.
Another recent celeb rumor was shot down this week. Seth Meyers was said to be the frontrunner to co-host Live! with Kelly starting this fall, but he denied the reports. He didn't beat around the bush when he talked the Orlando Sun-Sentinel saying "No, no, no, no, no." Meyers said he is excited to be at Saturday Night Live for an election year season and has no intention of leaving right now.
Rainn Wilson announced earlier this week that he is launching a new YouTube Channel, SoulPancake, and he promised that if they reached 5,000 subscribers he would post a video of himself meditating in a Speedo. Right now, the channel has already exceeded its goal by about 600 subscribers and the promised video was posted. A word of warning: once the image of Rainn Wilson in a Speedo has been seen, it cannot be unseen. Now Wilson has upped the ante and has declared that if the channel reaches 10k he will give a random senior citizen a piggy-back ride across the street.
