Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The world mourned when comedian Robin Williams died this past August, but undoubtedly none were more affected than his children.

To memorialize her father, Williams' daughter, Zelda, got a new tattoo of a hummingbird on her hand.

"For poppo. Thank you to the incomparable [tattoo artist] @dr_woo_ssc for so beautifully bringing my reminders to life," she wrote on Instagram. "I'll always put my hand out to shake with a smile."

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(MOSCOW) -- Tolstoy. Dostoyevsky. Chekhov. Pushkin. Gogol. Gorky. Bulgakov. Tyson?

Former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson has applied to join the Union of Russian Writers, an elite group of Russian scribes that also allows foreign members.

His promoter, perhaps not surprisingly, told ABC’s Tanya Stukalova, he was confident Tyson will be accepted as a member.

Representatives for the Union of Russian Writers were unavailable for comment, but Tyson's promoter said a decision could be announced as early as Thursday evening with a public presentation next Monday.

Tyson last year penned an autobiography, ...Read more

Desiree Navarro/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- SPOILER ALERT: Last season on Orange Is the New Black, Lorraine Toussaint guest starred as Vee, a prisoner that shook up the women's federal prison. And although her evil character was killed off at the end of season two, fans have continued to wonder if she's really dead.

"She's definitely taken a hit. She's taken a seriously bad hit. The creator Jenji Kohan believes she's dead and she would know," Toussaint tells ABC News Radio with a laugh, "but I secretly do think [she's alive.] Now it is Vee. It is Vee."

Toussaint says she's humbled that some fans are hoping that she's not quite ...Read more

Buena Vista(NEW YORK) -- That high-pitched sound you may have heard Wednesday afternoon was the collective squeal of millions of geeks after a teaser to Avengers: Age of Ultron leaked online.

Weinstein Company(NEW YORK) — St. Vincent isn’t a particularly complex story. In fact, it’s quite simple. Bill Murray’s Vincent is a different story entirely.
 
When we first meet Vincent of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, we quickly learn he doesn’t have enough money to pay off any of his debts, which include his bar tab, gambling arrears, and money owed for services rendered by his favorite pregnant Russian prostitute, Daka, played by the vastly underrated Naomi Watts (just two Oscar nominations is not enough). There’s also the matter of Vincent’s manner: it’s awful.
 
While passed out ...Read more

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) --  When Matthew McConaughey was considering taking the role of a father and former astronaut in the science-fiction movie Interstellar, he says he thought of his son Levi.

"He was into space and I would explain things in the solar system and how we got on the moon and all these things, and [he'd have] these young, wondrous eyes trying to, you know, work this out in his head," McConaughey said. "That was the main gut reason why I had to do this film."

The Oscar winner appears alongside fellow Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway and Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain in the Christopher Nolan film. They all sat down for an interview recently with

ABC/Richard Harbaugh(NEW YORK) -- Taylor Swift may sing about universal truths, but her life is decidedly different.

Fame, she said, has allowed her to splurge on things like a private jet ("Isn't that crazy?" she said in Esquire) but it's also forced her to lose a bit of autonomy.

"I fought the idea of having security for a very long time, because I really value normalcy. I really do. I like to be able to take a drive by myself. Haven't done that in six years," she told the magazine. "[Even in Tennessee, my bodyguards] have to be in a car behind me because just the sheer number of men we ...Read more

ABC/Rick Rowell(LOS ANGELES) -- Bill Murray knows all about Tinder, but that doesn't mean he's going to use it.

When asked if he would consider downloading the dating app, he responded in the negative.

"I think it could be amusing but I can't imagine doing it," he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. "I feel like I've lived that life and I can live that life at any moment."

Need proof? The St. Vincent star, 64, looked into the studio audience and made eyes at a man in the front row.

"I can just sort of say, 'Hey you, with the camera. No, you. Come here,'" he said. "Dammit, I'm coming your way!"

With that, he pulled the ...Read more

Lloyd Bishop/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- Shailene Woodley can certainly afford to buy a home, but the Golden Globe-nominated actress is homeless by choice.

On Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Woodley said she prefers a nomadic existence at this point in her life.

"I feel like I'm so young and this is the time to travel and experience new things," Woodley said, adding that she prefers to travel with a single suitcase.

"It feels so nice to not have to worry about 'Oh, where is that pair of jeans' because you only have one pair of jeans, which is why I have a carry-on. Because if everything I own is in a suitcase and that suitcase somehow gets
