Kristen Stewart has topped the list of Forbes Magazine's highest-paid actresses in Hollywood. The "Twilight" star raked in 34.5 million dollars last year. She just edged out Cameron Diaz, who came in at number two with 34 million, and Sandra Bullock at number three with 25 million dollars.
Walt Disney Studios has released a first photo of Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, in the up-coming film named for the evil villain of "Sleeping Beauty." The film has just begun production and is slated for a March 2014 release.
Alec Baldwin is being accused of hitting a New York City newspaper photographer. The man says Baldwin punched him while he was taking photos of the actor leaving a court house.

Finally, Justin Bieber literally shut down New York's historic Apollo Theater. The singer was holding a promotional concert at the venue when there was a power outage towards end of the show.
