  • George Clooney has a problem with Canadian bills

    George Clooney is not impressed with Canadian bills. (Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic)George Clooney may be flush with cash, but that causes him a certain amount of discomfort in Canada. The "Gravity" star has recently been in British Columbia filming his upcoming sci-fi mystery "Tomorrowland," and he's not too impressed with the new Canadian dollar bills.

    "Here's the thing about these Canadian dollars, I was just in Vancouver, I'm surprised you can even get this thing to fold, they don't fold," he told ET Canada. "And they're so clear you can see through them."

    "Tomorrowland" started shooting in August in Vancouver and the Okanagan. In September, Clooney cropped up a number of times in Vancouver where he posed with some super excited fans. “OMG GEORGE CLOONEY IS AT MY BAR HOLY S--- LOL” tweeted @Hamhuishipcheck when she saw the 52-year-old actor at Joey’s at Robson and Burrard. Clooney also posed with fans outside Minami restaurant.

    But even though he might have been having trouble with his Canuck money around that time, these days he's more concerned about Tina Fey and

  • Drake’s best moments from ‘Saturday Night Live’

    Drake owned it on Saturday when he hosted "Saturday Night Live"'s first show of 2014. The Canadian "Own It" rapper harked back to his "Degrassi" days with some impressive acting chops which he used to impersonate the likes of Jay Z. He also performed "Started From the Bottom" and "From Time," with Jhene Aiko on the show. Here are the best moments of the night:

    A spoof of Piers Morgan's interview show had Drizzy in the role of New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez, who is wrapped up in a legal battle regarding alleged past performance enhancing drug use. Drake pulled off a much-lauded impression of the baseball star in which he mocked Rodriguez's litigious behaviour by claiming he was suing dictionary, iPhone and steroids "for being inside of me." The sketch is also worth watching just to see cast member Kate McKinnon play Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, who attempts to explain his recent egg throwing controversy.

  • Michael Bublé debuts ‘Noah’ tattoo in honour of son

    Aww! Canadian crooner Michael Bublé recently debuted his new tattoo and it's as adorable as he is (possibly more)!

    The 38-year-old B.C. native is currently performing in Germany, but he took a moment on Monday to show his fans his new body art.

    "I know some have been asking about it... So here it is, my new tattoo!!" he wrote on Instagram with a photo of his right wrist with "Noah" on it in script.

    The name is significant because it happens to be that of his first child, who he and wife Luisana Lopilato welcomed in August. In fact, the photo also shows the little boy's hand nestled in Bublé's.

    Little wonder that the "Call Me Irresponsible" singer got a tattoo in honour of his son considering how enamoured he is of him. Just last month he revealed how excited he was to celebrate his first Christmas with Noah.

    “He's making (it) special for us. It doesn't get any better. It's the greatest thing that's ever happened in my life," he said, according to WENN. "I love that little boy so much. You

  • Did Vanity Fair lighten Lupita Nyong’o's skin for its March issue?

    Lupita Nyong'o may have been the Critics' Choice for best actress on Thursday night, but she may not to have measured up to Vanity Fair's standards.

    The fashion magazine is being slammed for allegedly lightening the skin of the "12 Years a Slave" star for its March issue. Vanity Fair released a sneak peek of its upcoming editorial with the tweet, "The stunning Lupita Nyongo photographed for our February #Vanities section."

    The image showed the Academy Award nominee in a wide feathered frock surrounded by balloons. She looks great, but some noticed that the actress's skin looked paler than it really is.

    But as Clutch magazine noted, a video of the shoot showed Nyongo in the glare of very

  • Matt LeBlanc: I was drunk in Bob Seger’s ‘Night Moves’ music video

    Want to see Matt LeBlanc drunk? Look no further than YouTube. Back in 1994, before he starred on "Friends," the "actor had a little too much to drink before appearing in Bob Seger's "Night Moves" music video.

    According to WENN, the musician was a fan of LeBlanc's and invited him for a pre-shoot drink in his motor home.

    "I go in there and he’s this really nice guy and he’s really humble and he whips out a bottle of tequila," the 46-year-old actor said. “Cut to about an hour and a half later, I’m hammered and he’s hammered and my friend that was in it with me, he’s hammered. You can kind of tell in the video I’m a little (drunk).”

    This was not the first time LeBlanc had appeared in a music video. He had already starred in Jon Bon Jovi's "Miracle" in 1990 and Alanis Morissette's "Walk Away" a year later. In fact, the same director worked on Bon Jovi's and Seger's music videos, which is how LeBlanc got cast in "Night Moves."

    "He said, 'Hey, we need a hero guy for this Bob Seger video,'

  • ‘Super Fun Night’ star Lauren Ash reveals her dating nightmares on ‘Conan’

    Lauren Ash has not been having super fun nights on her dates lately. The Canadian "Super Fun Night" star shocked the "Conan" audience on Tuesday night with a string of anecdotes about some of her bad dates in Los Angeles. And we're not just talking bad -- we're talking really, really bad.

    While promoting her People's Choice Award-winning sitcom, the Ontario native told Conan O'Brien about the "disaster" that is her dating life. One guy laughed into her mouth while they kissed, and another walked out in the middle of their kiss. However, it was the OkCupid online date that really took the cake.

  • Hayden Panettiere vs. Naomi Watts: Who wore Tom Ford best?

    Tom Ford is famous for dressing only one celebrity for the Golden Globes, and this year he chose Naomi Watts as the lucky lady -- despite Hayden Panettiere's pleas.

    But that didn't stop the 24-year-old "Nashville" star (who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her ABC show) from wearing one of his designs anyway. Panettiere wowed in a black and white halter that she actually bought herself for a cool $10,000.

    Jack Bauer might be fearless, but Kiefer Sutherland? Not so much. The Canadian actor, who played "24's" top antiterrorism agent for eight seasons from 2001 to 2010, is set to reprise his role for "24: Live Another Day." But four years after the Fox series bowed, Sutherland admits that he isn't as brave as he used to be.

    According to the Daily Mail, the 47-year-old Toronto native revealed at Fox's Television Critics Association press tour on Monday that he's scared to return to his old stomping ground.

    "Until we start shooting, I'm about as anxious and wound-up as I've been in a long time," Sutherland said.

  • Shia LaBeouf slams Jim Carrey after Golden Globes joke

    Shia LaBeouf came out of retirement to fire back at Canadian comedian Jim Carrey. The 27-year-old "Nymphomaniac" star, who claimed on Jan. 10 that he was "retiring from all public life," took issue with Carrey's jibe about him at the Golden Globes on Sunday.

    Carrey, 51, was presenting an award at the ceremony when he quipped, "Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. ... I believe it was Shia LaBeouf who said that. So young, so wise."

    The comedian's dig was referencing LaBeouf's recent controversies, specifically when he was accused of plagiarizing graphic novelist Daniel Clowes for his own short film.

    After Carrey's joke, LaBeouf took to Twitter to air his anger.

    "At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's," he wrote, according to ET Canada (the tweet has since been deleted).

    Carrey has never been arrested (as far as we can tell), so it is unclear what LaBeouf was referring to in the first part of his message. The "love child" he was referencing
