Was Naya Rivera Fired from "Glee"?
Sources say that NAYA RIVERA has been written out of the "Glee" fifth season finale, and it's not clear whether she'll be asked back for the sixth and final season.
Earlier this month there was a rumor going around that Naya got into a huge blow-out with the producers and LEA MICHELE, because she was fed up with Lea getting all the attention. Naya was reportedly escorted off the set.
But everyone denied it at the time, and Naya's rep now says, quote, "Any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from 'Glee' are absolutely untrue. End of story."
Cameron Diaz Says She's "Been With a Lady"
Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with host ANDY COHEN is known for putting celebs on the spot to answer probing personal questions during its "Plead the Fifth" segment.
This week, Cohen invited The Other Woman co-stars CAMERON DIAZ and LESLIE MANN to spill their secrets, and Diaz let out a big one: she's been with a woman.
When Cohen asked her if she'd ever "swam in the lady pond," Diaz responded, "What is the lady pond?"
Cohen re-asked a little more pointedly and Cameron ended up admitting, "Yes, I have been with a lady. Yeah."
When asked if it was more than once, Cameron simply said, "You didn't ask explicitly how I was with a lady, but I have been with a lady."
Kevin and Joe Jonas Are Doing a Few Shows Together
NICK JONAS may be off doing his own thing, but KEVIN and JOE are getting together for a few shows they're calling "Off the Record With Kevin and Joe Jonas". And they'll be doing a lot more than just playing music.
They'll be showing behind-the-scenes pictures and video and doing a Q&A with fans. Joe says, quote, "Each show will be a little different. We definitely have some surprises up our sleeves!"
Kevin adds, quote, "We're excited to engage with fans in a unique way and share stories we've never told before."

They're playing Freehold, New Jersey on June 5th, Philadelphia on June 7th and Wilmington Delaware on June 8th.

There's no word who any of the new cast members are playing.
Also, nobody from the prequels, which means no EWAN MCGREGOR dishing out advice as a ghost Obi Wan. Unless of course they're holding on to these guys for later. They could still join the cast . . . or even show up in the 8th or 9th movies.

The fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana is going to get in shape, courtesy of Michelle Obama.
The first lady will make a cameo on the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation for tonight's season finale.

She also spent her time between 2001 and 2004 dating ELLEN DEGENERES.
Meg Ryan Will Voice the Narrator on the "How I Met Your Mother" Spin-Off
It seems like MEG RYAN hasn't done any acting in forever. But that's about to change . . . kind of.
Meg has been cast on the upcoming "How I Met Your Mother" spin-off, "How I Met Your Dad". But she's going to be the NARRATOR . . . so we won't actually see her face.
Meg will be playing the "future" version of the main character, Sally . . . telling her kids how she met their dad. It's like how BOB SAGET voiced "future Ted" on "How I Met Your Mother" . . . and was never actually on-screen.

Indy's own Josh Kaufman makes it to the Top 10 on NBC's 'The Voice'
JOSH KAUFMAN didn't have to wait long to find out he was sticking around "The Voice."
Kaufman was the first one to be announced to make it into the Top 10. He will perform again next Monday night.
He ended up #4 yesterday in iTunes downloads for his performance of Sam Smith's "Stay With Me."
"It's overwhelming, it's humbling. I mean, I honestly, a couple of times this morning was just like on the verge of tears because, it's so, I don't know, to know that that many people are supporting you and that you connected in that way, it's pretty...it's pretty amazing," Kaufman said Tuesday.
David Letterman Told Stephen Colbert He's Glad CBS Didn't Replace Him with "Another Boob Like Me"
STEPHEN COLBERT will take over for DAVID LETTERMAN sometime next year . . . and last night, he was on "The Late Show" to talk about it.
Since Stephen won't be doing his "Colbert Report" character on the show, he played it straight . . . but he and Dave did engage in some silly bantering back and forth.
Dave said, quote, "I'm thrilled [you're taking over for me] . . . they could've just as easily hired another boob like me. But they didn't . . ." Stephen interrupted him, and said, quote, "They hire a boob like ME."
Dave responded, quote, "No, no, no, no . . . " And Stephen continued, "Every boob is like a snowflake, Dave. We're all unique in our own way."
Drew Barrymore Had Her Baby
DREW BARRYMORE and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed a baby girl yesterday. Someday they'll have to explain to her why they named her Frankie Barrymore Kopelman.
This is their second child. Their first, a daughter with the even LESS normal name of Olive, is 19 months old. Drew is 39 . . . Will is 36.
Cameron Diaz Would Like You To Know She Can Have Kids If She Wants To . . . And Also, She Hasn't Used Antiperspirant in 20 Years
Just because CAMERON DIAZ is 41 and childless, that doesn't mean she's BARREN. She says, quote, "If I wanted kids, at any point in life, I would have them.
"But I'm certain that if at any point I wanted a child, that child would find its way into my life, whether through adoption, or through being in a relationship with somebody who has a child."
She may have trouble finding a guy who wants to get close enough to impregnate her after this statement: "I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years."
She adds, quote, "You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in. "Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn't hold onto the scent."
Get Ready for Peeps: The Movie
Peeps aren't just the most disgusting candy tradition of Easter. Now, they're MOVIE STARS, too. That's right . . . "Peeps: The Movie" is happening. They want to make it a family epic like "The Lego Movie".
Here's the plot: It's the night before a Peeps diorama contest, and a Peep gets misplaced. He has to make his way through the various fantasy lands of several other dioramas to get back to his before the judging begins.
It's probably safe to assume this will be an Easter release. There's no word what year we can expect it.
Yes, there are actually Peeps diorama contests. The "Washington Post" holds one every year. The 2014 winner was based on MARTIN LUTHER KING'S "I Have a Dream" speech.
The internet is saying CHARLIE SHEEN and adult film actress BRETT ROSSI will reportedly get married on November 22nd. A source says, quote, "It's going to be extremely elaborate, and Charlie has told Brett to plan the wedding of her dreams, with no cap on the budget."
There's a rumor that they wanted to do it sooner, but Brett supposedly isn't divorced from her last husband yet.
However, Brett went onto Twitter to shut that rumor down by telling RadarOnline, quote, "Your articles about Charlie & I are so inaccurate it's pathetic. I've never had a wedding before. Get your facts straight."
A Guy From "Ice Road Truckers" Kidnapped a Prostitute and Made Her Jump Out a Second-Story Window
A guy named TIM ZICKUHR who used to be on the History Channel show "Ice Road Truckers" was arrested for kidnapping and beating up a prostitute.
Police say that back in December, he hired a prostitute in Vegas who goes by the name "Snow White". They did their thing, and then Tim made the intelligent choice of giving her his ATM card so she could PAY HERSELF.
Not surprisingly, Tim decided she took out too much money. So he arranged for them to meet at his apartment the next day. Then when she got there, he supposedly punched her in the face and threatened to KILL her.
Then he tied her up with backpack straps, poured water on her from a MOP BUCKET, and locked her in a closet until she gave him the phone number of someone who could bring him the money.
So she gave him the number of a COP she knows. Then Tim called the guy without KNOWING he was a cop . . . and said he would kill her if he didn't get $1,000.
So they arranged another meeting, Tim was arrested, and apparently he confessed to everything. Oh . . . and at some point during all this chaos, Tim supposedly made the woman jump out a second-story WINDOW.
The History Channel was quick to point out that Tim hasn't been on any "Ice Road" episodes since 2011.
Keyshawn Johnson Was Arrested for Domestic Battery
Former NFL player KEYSHAWN JOHNSON was arrested late Sunday night, after police responded to reports of a domestic dispute. Apparently, he and his girlfriend got into it, and there was enough evidence to take Keyshawn in for misdemeanor domestic battery.
He posted $20,000 bail yesterday morning, and was released.
There aren't any OFFICIAL details on what happened . . . and no one from Keyshawn's camp has commented.
TMZ claims Keyshawn never actually struck the woman, who he's been dating for seven years. Supposedly, he grabbed her phone and smashed it on the ground . . . and in the process, she suffered a, quote, "gash to her hand."
That may be the case . . . because the paparazzi caught Keyshawn and his girlfriend together at a cell phone store after he was released, but he wasn't talking.
Meryl Streep Once Thought She Was "Too Ugly" to Be an Actress
MERYL STREEP has been picking up Oscar nominations . . . annually, it seems . . . since the late '70s. But she didn't always think she was pretty enough to make it in Hollywood.
Meryl was recently at Indiana University to accept an honorary degree . . . and in her speech, she said, quote, "I was always in plays, but I thought I was too ugly to be an actress. Glasses weren't fabulous then.
"Many of my friends woke up at three years of age and said, 'I HAVE to be on stage.' I never had that. I've always been an omnivore, interested in way too many things, but I found the one profession that fed all my appetites."
Meryl also had some FANTASTIC advice for young people. She said, quote, "I would say, 'Don't worry so much about your weight.' Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things.
"For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that's your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up.
"I used to hate my nose. Now, I don't. It's OK."
20 Actors and Actresses Who Say They'll Never Work Together Again
Not all actors get along. In fact, some have such a horrible time with each other that they vow to NEVER work together again. Here's a list of 10 of these strained relationships . . .
Alyssa Milano and Shannen Doherty: Shannen was fired from their TV show "Charmed" because of her crappy attitude. And Alyssa compared her antics to high school drama.
Kevin Smith and Bruce Willis: Kevin was a director-for-hire on the generic 2010 buddy cop flick "Cop Out". He hated the experience, partly because Bruce was "difficult". Bruce called Kevin a WHINER.
(The relationship started out on good terms. Kevin actually appeared in "Live Free or Die Hard", which came out in 2007.)
Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte: Things didn't go well on the set of their 1994 film "I Love Trouble". Julia called Nick "completely disgusting," and he retorted that Julia is, quote, "not a nice person."
William Baldwin and Sharon Stone: While they were filming the 1993 erotic thriller "Sliver", their real-life chemistry was so bad that she actually bit his tongue so hard he couldn't talk right for a few days.
Bill Murray and Lucy Liu: They had a heated exchange on the set of the first "Charlie's Angels" movie, after Bill reportedly called out her acting skills. And he had such a horrible time with her that he didn't come back for the sequel.
James Franco and Tyrese: Tyrese couldn't stand Franco's "method acting" on the set of the 2006 movie "Annapolis". It got so bad that Franco would hit him for real during their boxing scenes.
Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj: Their feud on "American Idol" was pretty legendary, and it really dragged the show down.
Shia LaBeouf and Alec Baldwin: When they tried to do a play together, it never even got out of rehearsals. They locked horns from the get-go, and Shia was eventually fired.
Lindsay Lohan and America Ferrera: When Lindsay made a guest appearance on "Ugly Betty" in 2008, she brought all her usual baggage and bad behavior with her. She was supposed to do six episodes, but it was cut to four.
LL Cool J and Jamie Foxx: During the filming of "Any Given Sunday", LL was so intense during a fight scene with Jamie that he kept hitting him even after the director yelled cut. So Jamie called the COPS on him. But they later reconciled.
If you need even more proof that your government doesn't listen to you, I present this:
Almost 274,000 people signed that petition on the White House's website, asking that JUSTIN BIEBER be deported. As per the White House's own rules, any petition that gets over 100,000 signatures warrants a response.
But they responded by DECLINING TO RESPOND. They said, quote, "We won't be commenting on this one."
They added that they can decline to address, quote, "certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government."
In other words, it's not their department. Bieber is OUR problem.
Miley Cyrus Has Canceled the Rest of Her Tour
MILEY CYRUS is still recovering from her "extreme allergic reaction" to antibiotics . . . and on Friday, she announced that she's canceling the remaining dates of her U.S. tour.
But she's planning on going ahead with the European leg of the tour, which begins on May 2nd in Amsterdam. Last week, Miley's people said this type of reaction could take up to a month to recover from.
Lindsay Lohan Suffered a Miscarriage While Filming Her Reality Show
LINDSAY LOHAN dropped a bomb on the finale of her reality show last night. She suffered a MISCARRIAGE during filming.
She said, quote, "No one knows this, I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off.
"It's a very long story, but that's why on the show when it says she doesn't want to come down, I couldn't move, I was sick. Mentally, that messes with you."
Lindsay did NOT name the father.
Immediately after the show aired, Lindsay's mom DINA Tweeted, quote, "Oprah call me." But she quickly deleted the Tweet.
As you probably know, the show airs on Oprah's TV channel OWN. It's not clear why Dina needed Oprah to call her . . . or if Oprah feels any urgency whatsoever when Dina "demands" a call from her.

Chris Brown's Trial Starts Today
A judge set today as the start date for the assault trial of singer Chris Brown in the nation's capital.
The case is significant not only because he faces up to six months in jail, but also because if convicted he could face additional penalties, including jail time, as a result of his probation in Los Angeles for an attack on Rihanna, in 2009.
Last night on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live", LINDSAY LOHAN admitted that she wrote that list of her sexual conquests.
She said, quote, "That was actually my fifth step in AA at Betty Ford. And someone, when I was moving during the OWN show, must have taken a photo of it. And so that's a really personal thing and it's really unfortunate . . . I talk about it on the last episode on the OWN show, so to be continued."
Lindsay also came up with this sure-to-be-classic line . . . quote, "I'm done with mugshots and I'm ready for an Oscar."
Joey Fatone Says the Backstreet Boys Reunited Because They "Need the Money"
'N SYNC got together at the "MTV Video Music Awards" last year to honor JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE . . . and JOEY FATONE was recently asked if he thought that might lead to something more serious.
He said, quote, "It was fun, it was interesting, but I don't know if it's ever going to happen again . . . at this moment in time is anything going to happen? Absolutely, 100% no . . . at this moment."
He also used it as an opportunity to diss the BACKSTREET BOYS for reuniting. He said, quote, "I feel like they just need the money . . . no offense guys!"
For Some Reason, "Mrs. Doubtfire" Kid Mara Wilson Is Being Hounded on Twitter for Saying She Isn't Interested in the Sequel
Former child star MARA WILSON played the younger daughter Natalie in "Mrs. Doubtfire" . . . and she's NOT interested in the upcoming sequel.
Mara Tweeted, quote, "For the record, no, I do not have anything to do with the 'Mrs. Doubtfire' sequel, nor will I. I've been in some mediocre movies, but I've never been in a sequel. And I have no interest in being in one now.
"Sequels generally suck unless they were planned as part of a trilogy or series. I think 'Doubtfire' ended where it needed to end. I'm glad I had the chance to be in it, and I'm proud of what we did, but I don't see how we could do it again."
For some reason, that set the Internet OFF . . . and all kinds of "Mrs. Doubtfire" fanatics came out of the woodwork to harass Mara about her comments.
They Tweeted things to her like: Quote, "Someone seems full of themselves" . . . "Your lisp was annoying anyway" . . . "You were the worst part of the movie" . . . "Go [eff] yourself" . . . "Your career hasn't exactly been great since then, LOL" . . .
And, some moron with the handle "Democrat732" Tweeted, quote, "I think you're being a little [B-word]! You have not acted since 'Matilda' and here you [are] saying [EFF] THE FANS! Do it, you has-been!"
Mara responded, quote, "Thanks for giving my dad another reason to hate Democrats." She also sent out this general Tweet: Quote, "Does your mother know you spend so much time harassing C-listers on Twitter?"

She also showed off her ring, which is a yellow sapphire.
Miley Cyrus Had to Cancel Another Gig Because She Was Still in the Hospital . . . Is She Partying to Get Over Her Dog?
MILEY CYRUS had to cancel another show, because she was still in the hospital yesterday after having a bad allergic reaction to antibiotics. And doctors say they don't know yet when she'll be released.
Miley was supposed to play St. Louis last night, but earlier in the day she Tweeted, quote, "I can't get a hold of my team because it is so early so I want to be the one to tell my fans especially the ones trekking to get there.
"The hospital is saying I won't be released today therefore I'm not going to make it to St. Louis. I'm so sorry but some things are outta my control."
Then she added, quote, "If anyone thinks I'd rather be layin' in a hospital bed than doing what I love on stage they're [effin] LAME. I'm miserable."
Meanwhile, TMZ says the reason Miley got sick is because she started going off the rails partying to get over the loss of her dog Floyd earlier this month.
Orlando Bloom Got Out of a Ticket By Being Orlando Bloom . . . But Emma Roberts Got Ticketed Because a Cop Thought Her Bagel Was a Phone
Sometimes being famous gets you out of a ticket, sometimes it doesn't. And yesterday, both things happened.
ORLANDO BLOOM blew through a stop sign in Beverly Hills yesterday and was quickly pulled over. But the cop let him go once he realized who he was. There is even a picture of Orlando shaking the cop's hand.
EMMA ROBERTS wasn't so lucky. She Tweeted that she got a ticket for not using the hands-free option . . . on her BAGEL.
She said, quote, "You know what's fun? Getting a ticket for talking on the phone while driving when I WAS EATING A BAGEL! Can't believe it. To clarify I wasn't talking on the phone. He thought my bagel was a phone!"

Important Update: Kate Upton Does Not Hate Her Boobs!
It turns out KATE UPTON never said she wants smaller boobs. During an Australian radio interview, she said, quote, "I actually didn't ever say that. Yeah, no, I never said that . . . I love my body. I always feel incredibly grateful for what I have, but there's times when all women don't feel their best."
Miley Cyrus Was Hospitalized Due to An Allergic Reaction
MILEY CYRUS was hospitalized yesterday in Kansas City due to a severe allergic reaction to some kind of medication. She had to cancel a gig at the city's Sprint Center because of it.
I'm sure your first thought was that it was some kind of non-prescription "medication". But remember, Miley had to cancel a show due to the flu last week, and a source says she's been battling major throat and sinus issues.
She seems okay though. Last night she Tweeted a picture of herself in her hospital bed with a toy octopus, whose name is apparently "Mr. Octopussy".
Paul Walker's Brothers Are Going to Help Finish His Scenes in "Fast & Furious 7"
When PAUL WALKER died in November, he hadn't finished all his work on "Fast & Furious 7". And now the producers have a plan to complete the movie . . . they hired his younger BROTHERS to stand in for him.
Their names are Caleb and Cody Walker, and a Facebook post on the "Fast & Furious" page says, quote, "We have resumed shooting . . . and Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production.
"Having them on set has made us all feel that Paul is with us too." The movie is scheduled to come out next April.
Last month, we heard that they were going to use CGI to superimpose Paul's face over body doubles. It's not clear if they'll do that to Caleb and Cody.
If they do, though, don't you think it would be weird for them to watch the movie and see their dead brother's face on THEIR bodies?
Stephen Colbert Will Be on "Letterman", and CBS Says Chelsea Handler Is Not Taking Over for Craig Ferguson
Next Tuesday, STEPHEN COLBERT will be a guest on "The Late Show with David Letterman" . . . the show he's taking over sometime next year. Obviously, they'll probably talk about Dave's impending retirement.
By the way, CHELSEA HANDLER posted a photo, of herself holding some papers with the CBS logo on them, and mentioned something about a "business meeting". That made people think she was in talks to take over for CRAIG FERGUSON after his contract is up this summer.
But a spokesperson for CBS says, quote, "There are no discussions with Chelsea Handler regarding the network's 12:30 late night broadcast. Her meeting with CBS yesterday was a general meeting with our syndication [division]."
The Final Season of "Glee" Will Be Set Years Into the Future
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy says the show will jump forward in time for its sixth and final season, which will begin this fall. But he didn't say how FAR into the future.
He also says it will directly involve only a handful of core characters, although, quote, "Anybody who wants to come back can come back."
And he adds, quote, "Everything sort of builds to a head [in the current season's finale]. I would say explosion is too harsh of a word, but something big happens and then the final season is the aftermath of that."
Rosie O'Donnell Says Lindsay Lohan's New Reality Show Is a "Tragedy on Every Level"
ROSIE O'DONNELL is NOT a fan of LINDSAY LOHAN'S new reality show on OPRAH WINFREY'S network.
In a series of Tweets, she said, quote, "The Lindsay show is a tragedy . . . on every level. I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes, and sees what we all do."
She also added, quote, "So, a chat with Oprah can cure addiction and mental illness? . . . I'm saddened by [Lindsay's] level of illness, and the way we consume her truth as entertainment.
"[It] reminds me too much of WHITNEY [HOUSTON]. Tragic."
The series finale of Lindsay's eight-part show airs this weekend.
Showbiz Spy claims Ashton Kutcher thinks Mila Kunis is going to have a girl.
A source tells the site: “He has definitely brought up that he thinks it is going to be a girl. But when he has said it to people it seems more like a hope than an actual fact. They are ready to start a family, but they could have easily been ready to start next year as well. They really go with the flow and believe everything happens for a reason.”
Reports of Lindsay Lohan Drinking at Coachella are Circulating
Coachella is going on so it was only a matter of time before reports that LINDSAY LOHAN has fallen off the wagon started going around. InTouch Weekly and Female First are both claiming Lindsay was getting her drink on.
A source tells the sites: "She looked completely out of it. She couldn't stand up straight and she was frantically chain-smoking cigarettes. In one of her hands she had a plastic cup with a clear liquid in it. She didn't seem to care who saw and none of the group seemed concerned."
The source claims Lindsay's drink of choice was vodka soda.

The "Mad Men" Season Premiere Disappointed in the Ratings
Sunday's seventh season premiere of "Mad Men" disappointed in the ratings. Around 2.3 million people tuned in, which was the show's lowest season premiere since Season Two opened to 2.1 million in 2008.
For comparison, the sixth season premiere drew 3.4 million viewers last spring.
Meanwhile, Sunday's "purple wedding" episode of "Game of Thrones" did well and attracted 6.3 million viewers, which was just barely down from the 6.6 million who tuned in for the fourth season premiere last week.
"The Hunger Games" Won Three MTV Movie Awards . . . And Zac Efron Took His Shirt Off
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" was the big winner last night at the "MTV Movie Awards". It won Best Movie, and JOSH HUTCHERSON and JENNIFER LAWRENCE won Best Male and Female Performance, respectively.
The show was actually incredibly tame. Especially when you compare it to the average "VMA" broadcast. Probably the "raciest" moment occurred when ZAC EFRON accepted the award for Best Shirtless Performance, and RITA ORA ripped his shirt off.
Rita presented the award with JESSICA ALBA, who had kind of a John Travolta moment when she announced Zac as "Zac EE-fron."
Host CONAN O'BRIEN opened the show with a skit where he ran around trying to get 50 celebrity cameos. They included Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Ashton Kutcher and even Martin Scorsese.
Best Comedic Performance: Jonah Hill, "The Wolf of Wall Street"
Best Villain: Mila Kunis, "Oz, The Great and Powerful"
Best Kiss: Emma Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Will Poulter, "We're the Millers"
Best Fight: Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"
Meanwhile, Channing Tatum received the Trailblazer Award, and Mark Wahlberg was given the Generation Award, which he referred to as, quote, "The 'You're Too [Effing] Old to Come Back' Award."
Miley Cyrus Made $76.5 Million Last Year
"Parade" magazine has released its annual "What People Earn" rundown . . . and apparently, MILEY CYRUS' over-the-top demonstration of how she's no longer a Disney kid is REALLY paying off.
"Parade" revealed that she pulled down $76.5 MILLION last year. That's more than the $63 million JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE raked in throughout his two-album comeback.
Here are some other highlights from the report:
Beyoncé made $57 million in 2013 . . . a year that, for her, culminated in the release of a surprise album.
Bruno Mars earned $38 million in the run-up to his halftime performance at the Super Bowl. Bruno wasn't paid for the Super Bowl . . . halftime performers never are.
Sandra Bullock made $63 million with the help of her two latest movies, "The Heat" and "Gravity". And Matthew McConaughey, who has been everywhere, earned $19 million.
Chris Hemsworth pulled down $58 million . . . way more than his brother Liam Hemsworth, who only made $1.75 million.
Tyler Perry earned $78 million . . . and believe it or not, "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James somehow made an estimated $51.7 million.
Kate Upton Wishes Twice a Day She Had Smaller Boobs
Despite making a decent living thanks in part to her ample chest, KATE UPTON says she wishes she had SMALLER BOOBS . . . And she admits to wishing for that at least TWICE A DAY.
She says, quote, "I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life because I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs . . . If I could just take them off like they were clip-ons.
"Every single day, I'm like, 'Oh, man, it would be so much easier,' especially if people didn't constantly bring them up."
She adds, quote, "In my eyes, CAMERON DIAZ has the perfect figure." Kate stars with Cameron in the new comedy "The Other Woman".
