Ben Affleck has completed rehab for alcohol addiction, he announced Tuesday on Facebook, calling it something he has "dealt with in the past and will continue to confront."
Affleck, whose split from Jennifer Garner was making headlines again regarding whether they were giving their relationship another go or maintaining the status quo -- it looks like it was the latter -- said he has his eyes on being a good father.
"I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step," the 44-year-old Oscar winner wrote.
What has been missing from ads for Heinz Ketchup? A dollop of "Mad Men."
Five decades after Don Draper and company pitched a "bold" ketchup campaign -- "I think I still want to see our bottle," a reluctant Heinz exec said in Season 6 of the show -- the 2017 version of the company has signed off on the ads.
The ads are running on three billboards in New York City, in the New York Post and in Variety, according to Adweek. They're credited to David Miami, which is Heinz's current ad firm, and Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, the fictional 1960s firm from AMC's "Mad Men."
Snoop Dogg shouldn't clown like he does in his new video when it comes to the life of President Trump.
So says Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Creepy clown characters populate the video for "Lavender" (Nightfall remix), which remixes jazz fusion group BadBadNotGood's hypnotic 2016 song "Lavender," featuring Kaytranada, with profane Snoop-style lyrics.
After 25 years, the MTV Movie Awards will make room for television.
In the newly christened MTV Movie & TV Awards, small-screen actors will join their big-screen colleagues for a shot at the prize in categories that have included best kiss, best villain and best shirtless performance, the network announced Monday in a statement.
The overhaul acknowledges a "golden age of content" and "will celebrate even more of the brightest, bravest, funniest and most shared films and TV shows resonating across youth culture," MTV President Chris McCarthy said.

When armed robbers entered her hotel room in Paris in October, Kim Kardashian had to make a crucial decision on what to do next to stay alive -- that's what she explains to sisters Kourtney and Khloe in a promo for Sunday's "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
"I was like, I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision ... am I going to run down the stairs, and either be shot in the back -- like, it makes me so upset to think about it," she says, nearly breaking into tears, in her first public discussion of the crime.
"But they're either going to shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don't, if the elevator does not open in time or the stairs are locked ... there's no way out."
"America's Got Talent" nabbed a new host over the weekend, and now NBC's long-running reality series might as well be renamed "America's Got Top Model."
The network announced Sunday that Tyra Banks, creator and executive producer of "America's Next Top Model," will be replacing Nick Cannon as host when the series returns for Season 12.
"Tyra is the complete package: Out-of-this-world talented, funny, brilliant and all heart. In whatever she has done, she has always connected with audiences around the world," said Paul Telegdy, president of NBC Entertainment's alternative and reality group. "Her vivacious spirit will infuse ‘AGT’ in a big way."
Every year at the South By Southwest Film Festival, there is a screening driven by an excitement and anticipation, a palpable, ratcheting feeling in the air as the audience makes its way into the Paramount Theater. And every year it seems that energy couldn’t go any higher and then the next year it does.
As a playlist of music selected by the filmmaker, including Prince’s “Baby, I’m A Star” and other tracks with the word “baby” in the title, pumped through the theater, Saturday night’s world premiere of Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver” took it up another notch.
The film, which might be described by the singular genre descriptor of a high-energy crime caper gangster picture romance musical car movie, played straight through the roof. Starring Ansel Elgort as a young heist driver known as Baby, he is trying to get out of the criminal life when he is hired for one more job. The cast also includes Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Eiza Gonzalez and Lily James. Among many cameos are filmmaker Walter Hill, musicians Paul Williams, Killer Mike, Big Boi and Jon Spencer and the unusual duo of the ATL Twins. (The movie opens Aug. 11.)
“You’re the future,” Joe Biden told a rapt audience Sunday afternoon at the South by Southwest Conference here, appealing to the brightest minds in tech and media to join him in his commitment to fighting cancer. “You could make a gigantic impact. We need your ingenuity. You could have a profound impact on cancer.”
Introduced by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, the former vice president was greeted by a standing ovation from a sold-out crowd of 1,300 inside the Austin Convention Center, where he made an appearance to discuss the “cancer moonshot” initiative.
Biden was a late addition to an uncharacteristically politically loaded SXSW speaker lineup. On Friday, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker opened the conference — and took a few shots at President Trump — with a packed panel of his own. By early Sunday, Biden’s event had become such a hot ticket that wristbands ran out immediately and a nearby theater had to be opened to accommodate the overflow.
