BETTY WHITE - CECIL

BEVERLY HILLS, California (AP) -- Betty White is known as a big-time animal rights activist. So you can imagine how she feels about the Minnesota dentist who killed a popular lion during a hunting trip in Zimbabwe earlier this month. Asked about the death of Cecil at the hands of Walter James Palmer, White says: "you don't want to hear some of the things I want to do to that man." Cecil was drawn from a wildlife preserve and killed. White says she has "loved animals since the womb." She's promoting a new block of programming on Discovery Family Channel.

JENNIFER BEALS - HOT DOG?

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- It's the kind of thing that drives animal lovers mad: People who leave their dogs locked in their cars on a warm day. But Jennifer Beals says she did nothing wrong when she left her pooch behind while she ran an errand. The incident in Vancouver, Canada, was caught on camera by a TV reporter. A passer-by confronted the actress from "Flashdance" fame -- and she replied: "It's fine. Thank you." In a statement, Beals says it was just 73 degrees outside when she left her dog with the window partially rolled down while she picked up some laundry. She describes herself as a loving and "discerning" dog owner who'd never put a pet in harm's way. Animal protection officials say they aren't investigating the incident.

THE WOMEN FROM "THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E."

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The movie is called "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." But one of the actresses in the cast says the women in the cast aren't just there as eye and arm candy. Alicia Vikander says she plays one of "two very, very strong female characters." She says that's been a growing trend in movies in recent years. And Vikander says, it's something both men and women are showing they support -- by making such movies hits. Man from U.N.C.L.E. opens Aug. 14.

LUPITA NYONG'O - BROADWAY

NEW YORK (AP) -- An Oscar winner is making her way to Broadway. Lupita Nyong'o (loo-PEE'-tuh nee-YAHNG'-goh) will be making her debut in "Eclipsed" -- a story of survival set in post-colonial Africa. The Public Theater says Nyong'o will begin her New York stage debut in September. Nyong'o won the Oscar for her role in "12 Years A Slave."

SYLVESTER STALLONE - AUCTION

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Remember the recent auction of John Wayne's movie memorabilia? Sylvester Stallone does, too -- and he felt the sale would have been bigger if Wayne was still alive. That way, he could have explained how important the items were to him. Stallone says that's what moved him to get moving with a sale of some of his stuff from the "Rocky" and "Rambo" movies. Stallone is 69 and among the items he's giving up include Rocky's boxing gloves and other ring gear and Rambo's Army jacket and knife. Some of the proceeds will go to help military charities.

SEAN MALONE DIES

BOSTON (AP) -- It didn't look good for Sean Malone when he was pulled from the waters off a Boston beach earlier this month unconscious and not breathing. And as it turned out, the actor couldn't pull through. Authorities say he died Wednesday night at a Boston hospital. Malone was 54 -- and is best known for his work in the movies "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Fighter."

ICE-T - BABY ON THE WAY

NEW YORK (AP) -- Actor-rapper Ice-T is already a grandfather, but he'll soon be a new dad -- again. Ice and his wife Coco are expecting a baby. Last night, Ice told Jimmy Fallon that the doctors said it might take a year for Coco to get pregnant after going off the pill. But Ice says "Bam!" -- Coco was pregnant in two months. Ice says he and Coco will announce the sex of the baby on the debut of their new talk show, which starts airing Monday on Fox stations.

BETTY LYNN - THELMA LOU KEEPING THE FLAME FOR FICTIONAL MAYBERRY

MOUNT AIRY, North Carolina (AP) -- Fans of the old "Andy Griffith Show" would know that the town of Mayberry was inspired by the town of Mount Airy, North Carolina. But residents of the town have someone who can remind them of that on a regular basis. The actress who played Thelma Lou on the show signs autographs every week from a wheelchair for tourists to the town. Betty Lynn says she feels fortunate that fans remember the show and he role in it. She appeared in just 25 episodes as Barney Fife's girlfriend and is one of the last living connections to the show, which lives on in reruns.
