MULLIGAN HEADING TO WEST END

Carey Mulligan is heading to the West End in June for Skylight, a play about two former lovers reunited for one night.

The 28-year-old British actress will share the stage with veteran Brit actor Bill Nighy.

DEPP RECEIVES SPECIAL HONOUR

This is one award that's a long time coming.

Johnny Depp, who has always been celebrated for creating unique looks for his movie roles, was honoured at the 2014 Make-Up Artists And Hair Stylists Guild Awards last Saturday, with the first Distinguished Artisan Award for his work in films like Edward Scissorhands, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, and Alice In Wonderland.

"This is a great honour, but (as) I was occasionally glancing at the screen (during a career-spanning montage), I realised what a ridiculous thing I've done," the 50-year-old US actor joked in his acceptance speech. "I mean, seriously. Why are they still giving me jobs?"

HIS PANTS ALMOST BURST AT SEAMS

Bradley Cooper, 39, has less than a month to get a new suit for the Oscars.

The US actor, who's up for best supporting actor for American Hustle, recently shared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show how his tuxedo pants almost burst at the seams while he attended a State Dinner at the White House.

"I'm prepping for a new movie and I'm trying to gain weight fast, so I've gained about 15 pounds (6.8kg) in four weeks and nothing fits me any more," said Cooper, adding that he tried his best to greet people while staying seated.

"I couldn't stand up, really...it was a nightmare. But I made it through."

"I'm still going to work," she told Us Weekly.

"I'm still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!"
