Why Cameron Diaz took a break from Hollywood
It's been three years since Cameron Diaz appeared in her last film, 2014's "Annie." At Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP Wellness Summit on Saturday, June 10, Cameron explained why she took so much time away Hollywood. "I just went, 'I can't really say who I am to myself,' which is a hard thing to face up to," Cameron told Gwyneth during a panel discussion with Tory Burch, Miranda Kerr and Cameron's sister-in-law, Nicole Richie (via E! News). "I felt the need to make myself whole," she added. Later, Gwyneth asked about the panelists' relationships "Cameron, you got married later," she said. "What was it that kept you from getting married until you were 40?" After pointing out she was 41 when she and Benji Madden said "I do," Cameron explained, "I think it's a matter of I just hadn't met my husband, you know? I had boyfriends before. And there's a really, really distinct difference between husbands and boyfriends. And I have a husband who is just my partner in life and in everything. Talk about two very different people! We are so different from one another, but we share the same values — we're totally two peas in a pod. We are both just weird enough for each other." She went on to say Benji makes her feel like an equal in the relationship and supports her at every turn. "I never experienced that before. I'd never been loved in that way," she said. "I look at him every day and he inspires me — he works so hard. I feel so lucky."

Jennifer Garner attends church amid 'Alias' reboot talk
A glowing and makeup-free Jennifer Garner stepped out with her kids for church on Sunday, June 11, in the Pacific Palisades section of Los Angeles where she and her ex, Ben Affleck live. Although Ben's often joined the family for Sunday services since he and Jen called it quits, the actor didn't appear to be with them as they made their way to their car, stopping to chat with other churchgoers along the way. If the "Wakefield" star looked happier than usual over the weekend, it could be because of the revelation that the writers of her hit show, "Alias" have talked about the possibility of a reboot with the show's creator, J.J. Abrams. Speaking to fans at a panel during the ATX Festival on Saturday, June 10, co-executive producer Josh Appelbaum said rebooting the show "would be amazing," according to EW. He added: "The right idea would have to come. We wouldn't want to do it unless it was absolutely perfect."

Jenelle Evans opens up about her heroin addiction
Before she got help for her addiction, Jenelle Evans depended on heroin like a significant other, a point she makes in her new memoir, "Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom". "My first trip was amazing. I won't glamorize the drug by going into the long details of why people love it so damned much," the "Teen Mom" star writes in an excerpt published by E! News. "Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked." She goes on to recall the devastating effects her addiction had on her life. "The first thing I lost to the drug was my family. I disowned my mother and siblings and friends, but the truth is no one wants to talk to you when they suspect you're a junkie," she admits. Things only got worse when her mother got custody of her son, Jace. "It hurt my heart, made me sick to my soul that I couldn't see my son. I filled that hateful void with more drugs," she recalls. "The drugs always made the pain go away. They didn't turn on me or betray me. I guess heroin was my first steady, dependable lover. It gave me what I needed to live and I gave it my life. By this entry, heroin was the only thing I had in my life that loved me." Jenelle eventually got clean, thanks to her mom and rehab. "I ended up calling the last person in the world I expected to talk to, or expected would help me. My mother," Jenelle writes. "For all of our problems, I owe her for what she did that day. I called her and told her what kind of trouble I was in, and how I needed help." "Read Between the Lines" is due out July 25.

Caitlyn Jenner talks politics in tense dinner with Katy Perry
Well, that was uncomfortable. During Katy Perry's four-day live broadcast of her life in Los Angeles over the weekend, she hosted a dinner for 10 that brought together members of the political right — including Caitlyn Jenner — and left, including Margaret Cho. It soon became clear that most of the guests were more liberal than Caitlyn, who voted for Donald Trump and has long supported the Republican party. According to the Daily Mail, the conversation got tense when guests questioned Caitlyn's pro-Trump stance given his lack of support for the LGBQT community. When Caitlyn suggested she prefers an America with less government involvement in citizens' personal lives, someone pointed out that as a white male before she transitioned, Caitlyn (who was then Bruce) enjoyed plenty of preferential treatment. Caitlyn grew silent as the discussion continued until, finally, someone asked her why she'd quieted down. "I don't wanna talk anymore!" she retorted. Ultimately, she found a way back into the conversation by explaining that she's met with people who had never spoken with a trans person as a means of bridging the divide. Before she left the night, Caitlyn and Katy shared a hug. Katy's livestream was a promotional campaign for her new album, "Witness."

Kevin Dillon reaches divorce settlement
"Entourage" star Kevin Dillon and his wife of 10 years, Jane Stuart, have reached an agreement regarding the terms of their divorce after a disagreement over the date of their separation.

According to TMZ, Bobbi Kristina Brown's ex-boyfriend had been arguing with his girlfriend of two months, Laura Leal, about his belief that she wanted to hook up with one of his friends before he began hitting and punching her. The victim later said Nick had beaten her throughout the weekend and wouldn't let her leave the house. When his mother saw how badly she'd been attacked, she drove her to safety.

Nick was found liable for Bobbi Kristina's 2015 death last year.
