They moved in 12 years before Ford's death in 2006 at age 90 to take care of the ailing actor. "The reason was, he didn't want to be fenced in. This house is kind of a metaphor for his life.

After 14 years, a new installment of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones series is out this month, with a surprise twist: Some copies mistakenly included passages from another book released the same day -- a memoir by 73-year-old British actor Sir David Jason. Vintage chalked it up to a printing error. But in today's author-eat-author jungle, it's tempting to imagine a juicier scenario. What if it wasn't an error at all?

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sat alone in a front-row folding chair before the start of a news conference at the Simon Wiesenthal Center's Museum of Tolerance. He had just emerged from the museum's brand-new Anne Frank exhibition, which opens to the public Tuesday, and was visibly moved. "It was incredibly powerful," Garcetti said. "It's one of those visceral and transcendent exhibits - it hits you in the heart and the gut. " Gov. Jerry Brown also took time out of his schedule to attend the Monday VIP ribbon-cutting of "Anne," an interactive and fully immersive experience that honors the life and legacy of the teenager, who died in a Nazi concentration camp but left behind a diary that gave voice to the 1.5 million Jewish children murdered in the Holocaust.

Ever since "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," tales of the supernatural have provided a bridge between demographics, offering a way to showcase female empowerment while still keeping the guys interested. So it was only a matter of time before Lifetime got in the game. Inspired by Melissa de la Cruz's bestselling novel and starring such heavy hitters as Emmy-winning Julia Ormond and Oscar-nominee Virginia Madsen, "Witches of East End," premiering Sunday, moves the network one step further away from its sob-sister niche roots and closer to the mainstream.
