Seth Rogen, star of such comedies as "Knocked Up," talked to CNN on Tuesday about a very serious issue: Alzheimer's disease. Rogen, who called the disease "brutal," said his fiancee's mother has been battling it for years. He talked about the emotional toll it takes on families. Families, especially spouses who have to watch as their loved one's memories -- including shared memories -- deteriorate, can suffer psychologically. But Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia can take a physiological toll on families as well, studies say; one published last year in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society showed that the spouses of patients with dementia have six times the risk of developing dementia themselves.

I fear for the future of James Franco's acting career. And when I say acting, I'm referring to Franco's portrayal of other characters, not the growing number of meta performances the actor is amassing. It's not that Franco is bad at playing Franco. If anything, the problem is how good his self-referential work has become in the years since his 2011 Oscar nomination for playing someone else in "127 Hours. " That performance as a stranded solo hiker, the fear rising, the bravado breaking down, put him on the hot list of the young and the talented.

Kat Dennings of "2 Broke Girls" is standing up for Lindsay Lohan in the wake of some trash-talking regarding the "Mean Girls" actress' recent guest appearance on the show. Dennings called "complete" bull on a Wednesday story that alleged Lohan was a "train wreck" on set, unable to deliver her lines or keep a straight face when the moment called for it. The editor of the blog Crazy Days and Nights apparently scored an audience seat for the Tuesday night taping, which allegedly ran long in large part to accommodate the guest star's gaffes, according to the post.

Back in fall 2003, the producers of the NBC remake of the British hit "The Office" were looking for comic actors to work at their fictional paper company. Eventually, the top roles went to relative unknowns Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski and Steve Carell in the star-making role of Michael Scott. But those actors didn't just waltz into the roles. They auditioned and competed against a large number of other, equally talented performers for the roles. And in the 10 years since those auditions, many of those actors and actresses have gone on to establish successful careers outside of the friendly confines of the Dunder-Mifflin office in Scranton, Pa. Which is probably why the producers of the recently ended hit felt comfortable releasing their original audition tapes.

While the location of Graydon Carter's famous Vanity Fair Oscar party changed Sunday for the first time in five years, the abundance of A-list celebrities attending the bash did not. Winners from nearly every category, including Jared Leto, Lupita Nyong'o and Alfonso Cuarón could be found in high spirits, most clutching tightly onto their Oscars. The exclusive party, in past years held at the Sunset Tower, moved to a parking lot on the south side of West Hollywood's Sunset Plaza, the main tent offering sweeping views of the city from one side and a wall lined with portraits of past Oscar winners on another side.
