Oprah Winfrey took time out on the red carpet at Monday night's (August 12) premiere of her upcoming film, the civil rights drama, "Lee Daniels' The Butler," to talk about racism and the headlines surrounding an incident in Switzerland in which a clerk refused to show her a designer handbag. The television mogul explained that "racism" shows up in different ways and that she was sorry that her incident had blown up as big as it has. Jon Brooke, of the British indie band The Charlatans, has died. A statement on the band's website read that Brooke "passed away peacefully in hospital early this morning with his family at his bedside." Brooke had been receiving treatment for a brain tumor and had undergone several operations. The final two movies made by late "Glee" actor Cory Monteith will screen at this year's Toronto Film Festival. Organizers previously announced the event would host the premiere of "All the Wrong Reasons," a Canadian ensemble drama in which Monteith appears as a department store manager. Now "McCanick," a crime drama in which he plays a recently released convict, has been added to the line-up as well. The 31-year-old died from a heroin and alcohol overdose on July 13.
