In 2005, the “Baretta” star was acquitted of killing his wife, Bonnie Lee Bakley, but was later found liable for her death in a civil suit. Given the high-profile nature of the case, it wasn't so unreasonable for Morgan to broach the subject, but Blake didn't seem to agree.

One of the most noticeable men's trends at Sunday night's 2013 Golden Globes was the abundance of facial hair, from presenter Jeremy Renner's barely there smudge of a 'stache to Bill Murray's full-walrus mustache with connected sideburns. Some of the other bearded and mustachioed men in attendance were producers Grant Heslov and Judd Apatow, actors Jason Statham and Will Ferrell and, if you include Bradley Cooper's scruffy visage, all five nominees for lead actor in a comedy or musical film, with facial fuzz gracing the grizzled chins of Ewan McGregor, Jack Black, Bill Murray and winner Hugh Jackman.
