Kris Jenner turns 62
Kris Jenner celebrated her 62nd trip around the sun over the weekend with a trip to Cleveland, Ohio, to see Kourtney Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, but family members who couldn't be with the Kardashian family matriarch in person still poured out their hearts for her on social media. "Happy Birthday to my best friend @krisjenner," Kim Kardashian West wrote on Instagram (via ET). "Couldn't have asked for a better mom! Literally don't know how you do it and manage us all and be the best grandma and have the best outlook on life! I'm so grateful for you!!! Love you so much!" Kourtney Kardashian shared a similarly loving message with her mom, writing "Happy Birthday to my beautiful mother who is the perfect example of what it means to be living life to the fullest. You take each moment and make it a memory. Thank you for teaching me and my sisters how to be the women that we are today and the true value of family. With all my heart, love you madly." Khloe, who's reportedly spending most of her time in Cleveland (a move that seems not to have inspired her to confirm all those pregnancy rumors), also shared a post on Instagram in honor of Kris. "Happy birthday mama!!" she wrote. "You truly are a super hero in my eyes. Everything that you do, all the people you take care of and make sure are ok daily, the boss moves you make! I can't fathom how you do it all and still manage to look so f—ing fabulous! If I get to be an ounce of who you are then I will be proud of myself!! I love you madly mom!

George Clooney reveals what he made for his work on 'Suburbicon'
For George Clooney, "Suburbicon" was not about the money. As he explained to the UK's Sunday Times this week, selling Casamigos tequila put him in the comfort zone, money-wise, for a long time to come. "Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I'm 56," the actor and father of two said. "I'm not the guy that gets the girl anymore … I shouldn't be the guy that gets the girl. But, look, if somebody's got Paul Newman in 'The Verdict,' I'd jump. But there aren't that many [roles] like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f—— dollars. I don't need money." He went on to reveal he only earned $50,000 for "Suburbicon," which he co-wrote and directed. "I have money, so I can fight to make movies I want to make," he said, "If you look at what I've been in over the past 15 years, for the most part they weren't going to get made if I didn't do them," he said. "Nobody was going to make 'Good Night, and Good Luck,' 'Michael Clayton' or 'Up in the Air,' and I fought to get those out there. [Brad] Pitt's doing that a lot too. Brad does it, and that's a good use of celebrity … I'll make money other ways if I have to. I used to do coffee commercials."

Ben Affleck wants to be 'part of the solution' to sexual harassment in Hollywood
In the wake of mounting allegations about Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct, Ben Affleck found himself apologizing for groping Hilarie Burton on "TRL" back in 2003.

In a new interview with the Associated Press, Ben says he's "looking at my own behavior ad addressing that and making sure I'm part of the solution." In his eyes, that solution involves ensuring more women are "pushed to power" and making sexual harassment "a men's issue" in which guys hold one another accountable for their actions. He did not mention his own actions in any specific detail.
