Kim Cattrall’s missing brother has been found dead, the actress confirmed Sunday, a day after she posted a missing persons notice and asked for the public’s help in locating him. 

“It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall,” the “Sex and the City” star tweeted. She thanked people on social media for their “outpouring of love and support.”

Shortly after the British Canadian actress’ post, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police tweeted a confirmation. Chris Cattrall’s body was found on his rural property in southern Alberta, and the death did not appear to be suspicious, police told CTV News.

Paul Simon announced Monday that he will end his touring career, the latest in a recent spate of similar decisions,  including by Elton John, Slayer and Lynyrd Skynyrd

In an official statement, Simon wrote that he’d long wondered what it would feel like to realize it was time to stop touring. 

“Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating and something of a relief,” he revealed.

I think I did one or two films [in Los Angeles] in 1969. It just didn't satisfy me. I thought I would never go anywhere in Hollywood. I preferred to go back to Europe and make the kind of films that were close to my heart.

During the Super Bowl, Netflix revealed a first look at “The Cloverfield Paradox” before casually announcing that the film would be released worldwide on its streaming service following the big game.

Fans (including director Ava DuVernay) are pretty excited.

The third installment in the “Cloverfield” franchise, “The Cloverfield Paradox” was expected to be released theatrically by Paramount, which distributed its predecessors “Cloverfield” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” Up until the Super Bowl the film was still dated for a April 20 release in the U.S., although rumors of the unconventional Netflix acquisition had leaked out. 

In one of the most talked-about movie spots to debut during the Super Bowl, Disney revealed a first look at the highly anticipated “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Dropped with virtually no advance notice, the teaser took fans by (pleasant) surprise. This is the first time a “Star Wars” trailer has premiered during the big game.

Opening on Memorial Day (just three months away), the film stars Alden Ehrenreich as iconic smuggler Han Solo and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, both of whom we finally get a quick glimpse at in this teaser.

After keeping her entire pregnancy out of the public eye, Kylie Jenner shared the news this morning that she gave birth to a healthy girl Thursday. The baby’s name has not been revealed.

Rumors of the reality star’s pregnancy emerged back in September, but neither she nor rapper Travis Scott, who was rumored to be the father, confirmed the news until now.

“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions,” she wrote in a post on Instagram. “I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys.”

More than 100 million people are expected to tune into today’s Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. That means companies and ad agencies have to bring their A game to stand out in a sea of commercials.

With 30-second spots going for upwards of $5 million during football's biggest game, it helps to enlist the help of a familiar face to plug your brand. From Black Panther to Tyrion Lannister, here are some of the best celebrity cameos.

After Amazon's Alexa loses her voice, Cardi B, Rebel Wilson, Gordon Ramsay and Anthony Hopkins (in Oscar-winning character as Hannibal Lecter) step in to assist (plus, don’t miss the Jeff Bezos sighting):

Therapy worked in spades, and I think my comedy has gotten better. I know myself more, and therefore I'm a better worker. And the more you know yourself, the more you know your creative process and the more you can exploit it, the more you can change it and direct it, the more relaxed you feel and the more confident you feel.

Veteran Chicago Sun-Times movie critic Richard Roeper has been re-instated from a suspension after being caught purchasing tens of thousands of fake followers on Twitter. 

The writer was one of many media figures and celebrities named in a New York Times investigation of the shadowy firm Devumi, which along with another firm brought him over 50,000 followers “on at least six separate occasions” for an alleged fee of $650. 

“We took these steps because, in addition to our expectation of professional accuracy, authenticity is particularly important to the profession of journalism,” the Sun-Times said in a statement. Roeper had claimed he was unaware that the followers were fake.

Janet Jackson swiftly dismissed speculation that she might make a return visit to the Super Bowl stage with Justin Timberlake during his halftime show Sunday.

“To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not,” Jackson said in a statement released Saturday. “Thank you for your support and I do look forward to seeing you all very soon.”

Fans had wondered if Jackson might make a cameo after Timberlake mentioned her name during a Thursday news conference, responding to a question about potential guests for his performance.
