Lupita Nyong'o has landed the cover of Vogue magazine. The Oscar-winning actress is the second African woman to make the cover of the U.S. edition of the fashion magazine. She is featured on the July issue, which hits newsstands on June 30. Nyong'o has become fashion's 'it girl,' receiving critical praise for her various looks from awards season, where she walked Hollywood's biggest red carpets in support of her role in "12 Years A Slave," - which earned her an Oscar and a SAG award. Harrison Ford has undergone surgery on his broken left leg that was injured in an accident on the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII," the publicist for the 71-year-old actor said in a statement on Thursday (June 19). Disney, the studio behind the new "Star Wars" films, had said last week that Ford had hurt his ankle while filming at Pinewood Studios on the outskirts of London. Filming on the reboot of George Lucas' blockbuster "Star Wars" franchise will continue on schedule while Ford recovers. A man who's been accused of breaking into actress Sandra Bullock's Los Angeles home has also been charged with possession of an arsenal of weapons, the Los Angeles County District Attorney said on Wednesday (June 18). Police found the weapons cache, which included several machine guns, at the Montrose, California, home of 39-year-old man following his June 8 arrest at the Oscar-winner's residence in an upscale neighborhood near Beverly Hills, prosecutors said. Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" premiered in Hong Kong on Thursday (June 19). Bay and his star-studded cast, including Mark Wahlberg braved a short torrential downpour to walk the carpet. The film will release on Thursday, June 26th, 2014 in Hong Kong and on Friday, June 27th, 2014 in the U.S.
