Denise Truscello/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Earlier this week, Jennifer Lopez released a limited edition T-shirt emblazoned with the words, “Lucky to have these curves.” And indeed she knows how lucky she is. In The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, J. Lo discusses her famous figure and how it wasn’t always so famous.

"In traditional movies, that wasn't the figure unless you were playing, like, the femme fatale or the bombshell or something like that,” she says. “You couldn't be the serious lead. We kind of broke that mold."

Still, there were times when being the lead role in a movie didn’t exactly work out. Gigli, for instance, was an infamous failure -- but Jennifer says she never took it that hard.

"I never thought of it as, 'Oh, this is terrible! My career's over!' I just never thought that,” she says. “I just knew that that movie didn't work and that's all it was, or that relationship didn't work and that's all it was. It wasn't going to end me, personally or professionally."

She adds that even when she got married and had kids and her career slowed down a bit, she always knew she'd bounce back. “I realized, 'Yeah, you're gonna be even better than you were before. Watch,'” she says. “Those are the kind of talks that I had with myself."

Now, though, she acknowledges that fame bothers her more as she gets older. "When you're young it's like a shock at first, and you kind of have anxiety about it, but then you get used to that life and it just becomes your normal life,” she says. “And now? I think when I had kids and stuff, I was like -- I wanted a little more freedom to go outside and not have them have to deal with that part of it."

Bill Cosby in a Dec. 30, 2015 booking photo released by the Cheltenham Township, PA Police DepartmentEarlier this week, Bill Cosby was ordered to stand trial in a sexual assault case brought against him last December.  Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, has accused the comedian of drugging and assaulting her at his home in 2004.

Cosby, 78, who’s had similar claims made against him by some 50 other women, for which his legal team has issued a number of denials, insists he and Constand had consensual sexual relations and that the only drug he gave her was Benadryl. His legal team say that he will be vindicated.

In time, a jury will hear evidence from both the prosecution and defense teams, but according to Sunny Hostin, ABC News senior legal correspondent and analyst, it could be an uphill battle for Cosby's legal team.

"If his [unsealed] deposition [from 2005] comes in, which I believe it will, and if other women get on the witness stand, I think it’s going to be very difficult for Bill Cosby to defend himself," she said in an interview. "In my view, if there is a guilty verdict, no judge would sentence him to no time given the [alleged] pattern of behavior."

Constand first went to the police in 2005, one year after the alleged assault took place. That same year, Cosby was deposed in connection to the incident, and he admitted in recently unsealed testimony that in the past, he had given Quaaludes to a woman with whom he wanted to have sex. The prosecution will likely push to use that deposition in court, Hostin said.

"It’s going to be extremely damaging. You have Bill Cosby in his own words admitting to the same behavior that he’s being accused of by over 50 women," she said. "The issue will be for this jury [will be to determine] consent."

Cosby's legal team has already taken swipes at Constand's past statements, calling them "riddled with numerous corrections and inconsistencies," and Hostin believes they will continue to do so.

"The defense's strategy will be to say that she willingly took the drugs because she wanted to engage in sexual activity with Cosby," she said. "I think the defense will be that she targeted him for his money and that she didn't behave like a victim of sexual assault, because after this alleged [incident], she saw him again."

The fact that Constand didn't report the alleged incident to police for a year will likely be a factor, too. Though Hostin, who has prosecuted sex crimes herself, said that it's not uncommon for a victim to take time to process what happened before talking to law enforcement, some jurors might find it to be problematic.

To that end, "Andrea Constand's testimony by itself will not be enough to convict Bill Cosby," she said.

"The prosecutors are likely preparing the best stories for presentation and that means they want to find the victims whose [alleged] testimonies, character and life stories are almost unassailable," she continued. "[They need to find] women who have nothing to gain by getting on the witness stand and calling Bill Cosby a sexual abuser. Getting those voices on the witness stand is going to be crucial to this prosecution. It is going to be, in my view, the most important decision of this trial."

Ultimately, Cosby's fate will rest in the hands of a jury that has yet to be selected. Hostin said that contrary to popular belief, the lawyers don't need to find potential jurors who haven't heard of the allegations. What's more important, she said, is that they have yet to form an opinion about Cosby's guilt or innocence.

"In a high profile case, you don't want a juror who has never heard of the case because that's a juror who's not well-informed. Your ideal juror in a celebrity criminal case is a juror who has heard of this, but has an open mind and can put aside everything he or she has heard, sit in that courtroom day in and day out, listen to evidence as it comes in and then make a decision," she said. "There are jurors that can do that, and that's why you never know what a jury is going to decide. Some of the decisions [in past celebrity criminal cases] have been surprising for everyone who had been watching."

Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin have moved one step closer to finalizing their divorce.

The two stars have reached a settlement in their divorce proceedings, under which they've agreed to terms for child support and the distribution of property, People magazine reports. Both agreed not to ask for spousal support.

Paltrow and Martin married in 2003. They famously announced their "conscious uncoupling" in March of 2014, filing for divorce a year later.

They have two kids: Apple, 11, and Moses, 9.

JB Lacroix/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Former Glee star Mark Salling has been indicted on charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

According to the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, Salling was named in a two-count indictment returned Friday by a federal grand jury.  He was accused of possessing video and images of child pornography and using the internet to receive them.

If found guilty, Salling faces up to 20 years in jail on each count.

Salling, who played bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on Glee for its six-year run on Fox, initially was arrested in December by the Los Angeles Police Department, which seized a laptop, a hard drive and a USB flash drive. Investigators allege that the devices contained thousands of images and videos of child porn. Local prosecutors then referred the matter to federal authorities.

Barry King/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A judge in Los Angeles has granted Amber Heard a restraining order against her estranged husband, Johnny Depp.

Heard requested the restraining order in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday saying in a sworn statement that Depp threw a cellphone at her on Saturday night hitting her in the face.  She also submitted a picture of herself showing bruises around her right eye.  She also alleged that Depp  pulled her hair and hit her repeatedly.

Under the order Depp must stay 100 yards from Heard and can't try to contact her before a hearing on June 17. Attorneys for Heard and Depp had no comment.  Heard filed for divorce earlier this week.

Depp, 52, and Heard, 30, first met on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and married in February 2015. Almost immediately, the couple was dogged by tabloid rumors that their relationship was on the skids. Heard, however, shot down such reports late last year. "I try not to react to the horrible misrepresentation of our lives," she told Marie Claire, "but it is strange, and hard."

After she filed to end the marriage, citing irreconcilable differences, Depp's rep issued a statement to People. "Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother [recently], Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly," his rep told the magazine.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Johnny Depp is addressing his split from his wife Amber Heard.

In a statement obtained by People magazine, a rep for the Alice Through the Looking Glass star said, "Given the brevity of this marriage and the most recent and tragic loss of his mother, Johnny will not respond to any of the salacious false stories, gossip, misinformation and lies about his personal life. Hopefully the dissolution of this short marriage will be resolved quickly."

Heard, 30, reportedly filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. Depp reportedly has requested the court reject her claim for spousal support.

She met Depp, 52, on the set of The Rum Diary in 2009 and married him in February of 2015.

As Depp's rep referenced in the statement, the actor lost his mother three days before the divorce filing.

Alan Markfield; Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- It’s not easy stepping into Halle Berry’s shoes, but X-Men: Apocalypse actress Alexandra Shipp is enjoying everything that comes with the territory of portraying a new version of the supernatural mutant Storm.

Everything -- including advances from female admirers.

On Thursday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the Phoenix native revealed that when she shaved her head for the Mohawk her character sports, she got more attention from female fans -- and liked it.

“I’ve been getting hit on by the ladies a little more lately,” she confessed. “I like it.”

The Emmy Award-nominated hostess probed further and asked her did she ever kiss a girl.

And in true Katy Perry form, the 24-year-old actress quipped:  “I’ve kissed a girl and I like it.”

A former soap opera actress, Shipp broke through portraying the lead role in the Lifetime biopic of late R&B singer Aaliyah.  Last year, she played Ice Cube’s wife, Kim, in the blockbuster hit movie Straight Outta Compton.

Tommaso Boddi/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Anne Hathaway gave birth to her first child, a boy, just two months ago but has already quickly learned what an adventure being a parent can be.

Hathaway revealed in an interview that aired today on Good Morning America that she hasn’t seen the first 20 minutes of her new adventure fantasy movie, Alice Through the Looking Glass, because of her son, Jonathan Rosebanks Shulman.

“I'm sorry. I am a new mother and I didn't time the feeding schedule -- well, like I have any control over it,” Hathaway, 33, told ABC News’ Chris Connelly with a laugh. “My kid was hungry, I had to feed him, I missed the first 20 minutes so I can't tell you about the beginning of the movie.”

Alice Through the Looking Glass puts a new twist on the backstory of Hathaway’s character, the White Queen. Hathaway called that story her character’s “secret” in the movie.

While the film revisits the fury of Helena Bonham Carter’s portrayal of the Red Queen, it also puts a new twist on the backstory of Hathaway’s White Queen.

“It was nice to find out that she wasn't so good all the time,” Hathaway said of her character. “She's covering something up. And that all that goodness is kind of put on so the people don't find out her secret.”

The Oscar winner and her husband, Adam Shulman, shared their own secret in January when Hathaway posted an Instagram photo of herself in a bikini, proudly showing off her pregnant belly.

“I hadn't planned on ever confirming it and then I just, I had seen a photographer while I was on vacation, taking a photo, and I just thought, ‘It's such a joyful and a sacred experience, you know, carrying life,’” Hathaway explained. “And I just thought, ‘I don't want the first version of this to be out there with me covering or scowling at someone.'"

She added, “You know, that's not representative of the experience, so I chose a photo that I was happy with, and I put it out there.”

Hathaway's royal role in Alice Through the Looking Glass debuts 15 years after a crown was first placed on her head in the classic young adult movie The Princess Diaries.

"More so than any other film that I've been in, that film has legacy and it just has meant so much to so many people," Hathaway said of the film, which also starred Julie Andrews. "It's given people the opportunity, you know, little girls and little boys to curl up with their parents on the couch and throw on their sweatpants and sit and cuddle and it's a real honor to think that something that you've been a part of becomes a part of the fabric of people's lives, you know?"

Alice Through the Looking Glass is in theaters now.

Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc.(NEW YORK) -- Jeopardy!'s current champion is causing quite the divide on the Internet with his quirky attitude, witty repartee and sharp outfits.

Buzzy Cohen, the nine-day reigning champ, has already earned $164,000 and is showing it off in a way never seen before on the show.

He felt comfortable enough at one point to pass up prize money in “Final Jeopardy,” wagering $0 just to make a joke.

Cohen, tapping into his inner Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery on the Saturday Night Live Jeopardy! riff, used answers like "What is ‘See You Tomorrow, Trebek?’"

Alex Trebek, of course, is the longtime Jeopardy! host.

The contestant's behavior rapidly gained traction across the Internet, sparking the question: smug or sexy?

People are taking to social media, posting comments on Twitter, asking, "Has there ever been a more punchable Jeopardy champion?"


Has there ever been a more punchable @Jeopardy champion than Buzzy Cohen?

— Snackie Onassis (@jackieishungry) May 24, 2016


Whether people love him or hate him, Cohen told ABC News, "This is just me. This is my hair and these are my glasses.”

One fan tweeted, "I have never loved a man the way I love Buzzy Cohen."

"There are people who have sought me out and sent me messages,” Cohen said, adding that the messages include "Things that you can't say on TV."

Even Jeopardy! host Trebek seems to be jumping on the Buzzy train, mimicking Cohen's suave moves like slicking his hair back for correctly answering questions.

Image courtesy of HBO; Helen Sloan/courtesy of HBO(NEW YORK) -- It's been five days of mourning since we bid farewell to Hodor -- the loyal servant of Winterfell and Brandon Stark's right-hand man on Game of Thrones.

Now Bran himself, actor Isaac H. Wright, paid sweet homage to the late character with a tribute on his Twitter page.

"Even though Hodor may be gone, @KristianNairn isn't getting away from me that easy...#HoldTheDoor #GameofThrones," Wright tweeted Wednesday.

Fans watched helplessly Sunday night as the simple-minded Hodor -- played by actor Kristian Nairn -- was apparently killed by the zombie-like wights as he protected Bran and the group from the same fate.

Nairn told Entertainment Weekly earlier this week that he "loved" the way his character went out by saving the lives of his friends.

Nairn tweeted a selfie of himself alongside buddy Wright while the two actors shared what may or may not be a "Hold the Door"-themed cake, writing, "Even after all he's done to poor hodor. I'm still sharing my cake with @Isaac_H_Wright #love #gameofthrones."

Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse; Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- Ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, humans and mutants coexist -- but not exactly in peace.

Rewind, because that’s not how our story starts.  It begins in ancient Egypt, where we first meet our bad guy: Apocalypse. It’s simultaneously electrifying and slightly hilarious. No, I’m not going to elaborate -- I’ll just leave it there. In fact, I can’t wait for Honest Trailers to give this movie their treatment. But I digress.

Apocalypse is a mutant with a god complex.  In an effort to take over the world, he seduces four mutants to help him do his bidding. But things don’t exactly work out for him and he winds up buried in the ground for a few thousand years.

Back to the present day.  Apocalypse -- En Sabah Nur, if you’re nasty -- is kind of a myth but has a small group of followers who not only believe he exists, they’ve unearthed his tomb in hopes of resurrecting him.

In the United States, we get the origin story of Cyclops, aka Scott Summers, a kid whose looks can, literally, kill. We’re introduced to a number of new mutants in this movie, in fact, and reintroduced to others, the most interesting of which is Evan Peters’ Quicksilver. In addition to one particular, jaw-dropping, “explosive” sequence in which Quicksilver steals the show, Peters is an engaging, scene-stealing presence. The guy’s got a high ceiling and I expect, at some point in his career, he’ll be one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood.

There’s really only one other emotionally engaging element to this movie, and that’s Magneto’s storyline.  He goes into hiding in Germany, pretending to be a regular guy who gets married, has a daughter and works in a steel factory -- which given his metal-manipulating mutation is kind of like a recovering alcoholic taking a job in a distillery. While it’s a choice that defies logic, Magneto’s plight, and the way Michael Fassbender plays it, elicits empathy.

I forgot to mention that Oscar Isaac plays Apocalypse and for, perhaps, the first time in his career, he makes zero impact. You can barely tell its him.  Quite frankly, you could’ve put any number of actors in all that make-up and I don’t think it would’ve made a difference. Apocalypse feels more like a symbol than a fully fleshed-out character.

In other words, X-Men: Apocalypse focuses on -- nothing. It doesn’t have a focus. Instead, too many chefs in the kitchen kind of spoil the apocalypse. It’s overwritten, overproduced and underdeveloped, but even so, it’s not bereft of entertainment value. It’s still a visual spectacle with some outstanding performances, most notably from Fassbender, James McAvoy’s Professor Charles Xavier,  Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, and Peters.

Three out of five stars.

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Are Dancing with the Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd making room for another little pair of dancing feet?

The couple, who got engaged back in December, are expecting, sources tell People magazine.

This will be the first child for both Murgatroyd, 29, and Chmerkovskiy, 36.

Peta -- who along with her DWTS partner, America's Next Top Model season-22 winner Nyle DiMarco, was crowned this season's Mirror Ball champion on Tuesday -- was tight-lipped when asked about wedding plans after the show, according to the entertainment magazine, but did reveal that she and Chmerkovskiy have “chosen some dates.”

A rep for the couple has yet to comment.

In the meantime, Maks will head out with his brother Valentin Chmerkovskiy on Maks & Val Live on Tour: Our Way this summer.

Dancing with the Stars returns for its 23rd season in September on ABC.

L-R: Anne Hathaway, Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska; Peter Mountain/Walt Disney Studios(LOS ANGELES) -- Alice Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, opens in theaters tonight.  If you've seen the trailers, you know it's a CGI effects spectacle.  And that led to director James Bobin receiving some sage advice from the previous film's director, Tim Burton.

"Don't shoot on green screen, it kills your eyes," Bobin said Burton told him, referring to the backdrop of scenes to which computer-generated effects will later be added.

"Because after four weeks of doing it he started wearing purple sunglasses," Bobin explains. "So I said great, I won't do that, I'll shoot on blue, so we shot this movie on blue screen, which I'm here to say is really a lot easier."

Bobin says he felt a "great weight of responsibility" in directing the project. "Alice is a thing as a kid in England you read, you know, when you're growing up, your parents read it to you, you read it yourself," the British filmmaker says. "And in England everyone knows that there's two books, you have the two books as well, so you know the books better than you know the movie in many ways." 

Alice Through the Looking Glass stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. It will be released by Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

L-R: Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, James McAvoy, Lucas Till and Nicholas Hoult; Alan Markfield/Marvel Studios/Twentieth Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- The mutant superheroes are back in X-Men: Apocalypse.

“The stakes are definitely higher in this one because we’ve never had a villain before that’s like straight up about to wipe off the face of the earth,” star Jennifer Lawrence tells ABC News of the latest chapter in the X-Men film franchise.

Lawrence's character, the shape-shifting Mystique, teams up with telepath Professor Charles Xavier, leader of the X-Men, to battle the most powerful mutant of all — the immortal Apocalypse. But our heroes get the job done, with help from a new generation of mutants.

“It’s got everything you want in your summer blockbusters in terms of all that crash, bang and wallop in action, and all that stuff,” says James McAvoy, who plays Xavier.

Lawrence also says that in this film, her character is “growing up a little bit more. “She’s not so focused on rebelling anymore, she’s more interested in the betterment of the mutants.”

Sophie Turner, best known to most as Sansa Stark from HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, plays a young Jean Grey, armed with her own formidable telepathic and telekinetic powers.

“Everyone was so welcoming, it was good,” said Turner of joining the franchise veterans. “And it’s just fun to play a small part in such a big ensemble cast.”

Oscar Isaac, who plays Apocalypse, agrees.  “It feels like an X-Men movie that I’ve been waiting for as well, you know, because some things happen that are so classic form the comic books,” he says.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens nationwide tomorrow.
